He took a piece of fruit from the plate and fed it to Xuxu.
She opened her mouth to accept it.
“I need to go to the bathroom. I’ll be back,” she said, smiling and chewing at the same time.
As she walked towards the bathroom, something crossed her mind. Suddenly, she turned around and made her way back. Standing on the tip of her toes, she planted a swift kiss on Yan Rusheng’s cheek.
“I love you, Hubby.”
By the time he recovered from his stupor, Xuxu already disappeared into the washroom.
He recalled the word ‘Hubby’ and touched the spot on his face that Xuxu had kissed. He was still in a daze.
It was the first time Xuxu had called him ‘Hubby’.
When it finally processed in his mind, he grinned. That was an unprecedented blessing.
Indeed, after a fight, it was right for the man to apologize first.
But this only worked on girls like Wen Xuxu—girls who were not insatiable and would not become arrogant when they get pampered.
After Xuxu returned from the washroom, she sat beside Yan Rusheng on the sofa and continued to eat.
To be accurate, Yan Rusheng was feeding her.
“Open your mouth.”
All the food he had chosen was Xuxu’s favorites.
A hilarious variety show was on, making Xuxu roll over in a fit of laughter. Yan Rusheng grabbed the remote and turned it off.
“Yan Rusheng, what are you doing?” Xuxu exclaimed, shooting him a resentful glare.
“Really wishing I could be doing you,” he replied in a serious tone. He forked a piece of honeydew into his mouth. Chewing, he supported her face in his palms and transferred the honeydew into her mouth.
Immediately, his tongue entered her mouth, swiftly scooping the honeydew into his own, chewing with relish.
Xuxu’s expression darkened. ‘This disgusting fellow.’
Just when she thought Yan Rusheng’s actions were already very disgusting, he grabbed her face in one swift motion and placed his lips on hers.
Xuxu’s eyes widened.
‘What… What is he trying to do?’
Instinctively, she forcefully pushed him away and stood up.
“Yan Rusheng, you’re too disgusting,” she spat, glaring at him.
“I was just trying to kiss you. How is that disgusting?” he asked, eyebrows knitted and face full of innocence.
His words were fast-spoken and his mouth was empty.
Xuxu frowned. Had she misunderstood his actions?
“Weren’t… Weren’t you going to feed me the chewed up honeydew?”
Yan Rusheng laughed and spread his hands.
“If you want me to, I’d be happy to oblige.”
“Alright. Alright, enough already. Let’s go outside.”
Xuxu bent over to grab his elbow, pulling him up and walking towards the door.
They met two figures outside their room—Su Yue and her friend Bai Jing.
“Third sister-in-law,” Su Yue said. “Bai Jing is leaving now, but there are no more buses at this hour.”
“We haven’t cut the cake, right? Have some cake before you leave,” Xuxu offered.
“No… No thanks,” Bai Jing rejected, shaking her head. In a small voice, she continued, “My father just called. He’s raging.”
Her last two words were almost inaudible.
Xuxu thought about it. A girl going out alone—of course, her family members would be worried. She turned to Yan Rusheng and said, “Then you should quickly find a chauffeur to send her back.”
“Sure,” Yan Rusheng agreed, nodding his head. He walked towards the main lobby.
Xuxu, Su Yue, and Bai Jing trailed behind him.
Most of the guests had left. Only familiar faces remained.
Yan Rusheng looked around. Immediately, someone came up to him and politely asked, “Third Master, is there anything I can do for you?”
