Su Yue nodded. “Yes, if she didn’t do well for her exams, she will be retained for another year.”
Xuxu replied, “But from what you have mentioned, she should be able to do well.”
Bai Jing used to attend another school in another city before she transferred to the capital city a few months ago. Since the syllabus in her former school was similar to her current one, she had a greater advantage than Su Yue with the exam.
“Little girl, it’s the summer vacation now. Are there any places you would like to go?” Diverting the topic from Bai Jing, Xuxu looked at Su Yue through the rear mirror.
Su Yue shook her head. “Don’t feel like going anywhere.”
The college exam had given her immense pressure. For the last six months, she had been struggling to cope with the overly demanding workload.
When the exams were over, she more or less had an inkling on how she fared.
She didn’t do well.
As she mulled over this, she lowered her head and pressed her lips together as she played with her fingers.
She had a look of despondency on her face.
Xuxu noticed the change in expression but didn’t bat an eyelid. With the results of the mock test Su Yue had taken before, she could already hazard a guess what her actual exam results would be—she won’t be able to make it to the key universities.
Unless she enrolled in an art faculty.
Hence, from the time she fetched Su Yue, she didn’t ask her how her exam went.
She wanted to let her know that it was alright if she did poorly in the exam. Studying in a prestigious university was never really a need because as long as she was happy, it was good enough.
And that she would understand despite her not saying anything.
As it was still early, Xuxu brought Su Yue to her workplace and stayed there for two hours before bringing her out for dinner.
It was the ending phase of the construction of the mall in Chengnan, and Yan Rusheng was working his socks off. He reached home close to 8 p.m. almost every night. Su Yue also said that it was the same for Su Yan.
Thus, only the two of them went out for dinner. The streets of the capital city were brightly lit even after 6 p.m.
Xuxu took Su Yue to a high-end mall. The fifth level, comprising Western and Chinese stores, made the ambiance as classy as the mall itself.
After dinner, she planned to bring Su Yue to shop around for new clothes and to visit the maternity and baby shop as well.
Whenever she had time lately, she would visit the maternity and baby shops. After seeing those tiny shoes and clothes, she couldn’t wait for the little fellows to be out in the world.
She had already stored up many baby necessities at home. Just milk bottles alone, there were already over ten.
Mu Li was just like her, buying anything that caught her eyes.
When they stepped out of the lift, Xuxu’s cellphone rang. She took out her phone and saw that the caller was Zhou Shuang. She answered the call as she walked.
Su Yue trailed behind her. After walking a distance, she turned back and found Su Yue staring at a billboard at the elevator entrance.
After ending the call, she went back and looked at Su Yue. It baffled her. “What are you looking at?”
“Uncle Ming’s photo,” Su Yue said as she pointed to the people in the billboard.
Xuxu looked at it. It was a group photo with Ming Ansheng standing at the front row. He was dressed in a smart suit and looked completely suave and dashing.
Out of the group of elites, he stood out the most.
The words written on the billboard were ‘Yifeng 10th Anniversary Celebration’. Yifeng was the name of the mall.
Xuxu seemed to have thought of something and smiled. “Oh yes, this mall belongs to Bright Vision.”
It visibly startled Su Yue. “Uncle Ming’s family?”
She knew that Ming Ansheng’s company is Bright Vision.
Xuxu nodded. “You’re right.”
Su Yue smiled. “Then will he give us discounts?”
“Useless lass.” Xuxu affectionately gave Su Yue a poke on her head before holding her hand. “Let’s go for dinner now. We’ll keep the bill and claim it from him when we see him again.”
