“Third sister-in-law, Third Brother is here.”
Su Yue caught a glimpse of Yan Rusheng as his tall form appeared at the door. She informed Wen Xuxu first instead of directly addressing Yan Rusheng.
Xuxu raised her head. Her face lit up with a bright smile. “Ah Sheng, you’re here.”
Bai Jing raised her head as well as Yan Rusheng strode towards them. Her raven-black eyes were glistening.
Yan Rusheng stood and surveyed the food containers. He knew that Bai Jing barely touched her food judging from the leftovers.
He glanced at Bai Jing. “If you get hungry in the middle of the night, you can call and ask for food delivery.”
His eyes didn’t linger on Bai Jing and darted to Xuxu. “When did you arrive?”
Xuxu replied, “A short while ago.”
She rose and rounded the table. When she reached Yan Rusheng, both of them glanced at Bai Lisong at the same time.
He was still asleep, but he had knitted his eyebrows together. It must have been hard to get over the pain even while he was fast asleep.
Yan Rusheng left after a short while.
Xuxu grabbed her bag and held Su Yue’s hand. Su Yue followed her out of the door before halting. She whispered, “Third sister-in-law, can I stay with Bai Jing?”
Bai Jing was trailing behind them and interjected before Xuxu could answer. She said, “Su Yue, go home first. I don’t need you to accompany me. I’m fine.”
Xuxu nodded in agreement. “Yes. Yueyue, why don’t you come back tomorrow?”
They had hired a male caregiver to take care of Bai Lisong during the night. With a girl around, it wouldn’t be so convenient.
Su Yue obediently nodded. “Alright then.”
She glanced at Bai Jing once more. “I’ll head here tomorrow with Brother Qi Lei.”
Bai Jing pressed her lips in a straight line, and it seemed like she had no objection.
Xuxu tightened her grip on Su Yue’s hand after she had seen that Yan Rusheng already reached the corner. She had guessed that he came over as soon as he had gotten off from work without having dinner. She said to Su Yue, “Let’s go.”
Su Yue waved at Bai Jing.
Bai Jing stood at the door and watched them walk to Yan Rusheng.
Su Yue said something to Yan Rusheng, and all the while he had a tender smile on his face.
It was a smile that could melt ice—it was so warm and gentle.
They were about to walk out of the elevator when Yan Rusheng’s phone rang. He glanced at the screen and picked up the call when he saw that it was Lu Yinan. “Hello.”
He suddenly paused in his tracks and glanced at Xuxu.
It puzzled Xuxu when Yan Rusheng passed her the phone. “Lu Yinan is looking for you.”
‘Why is Lu Yinan looking for me?’ Xuxu thought to herself. Xuxu received the phone and answered.
Lu Yinan sounded impatient and irritated over the phone. “Did Zhou Shuang look for you? Do you know where is she now?”
‘So he was calling to look for Zhou Shuang!’
‘But why is this fellow frantically looking for Zhou Shuang?’
“I was with her in the afternoon. After lunch, she went back home,” Xuxu answered. “What’s wrong?”
Lu Yinan replied, “I know. I met her this afternoon.”
“She didn’t look for me since then.” A thought struck Xuxu and she began to get anxious. “What did you say to her?”
They had already informed the Lu family of Zhou Shuang’s pregnancy. It must be the reason Lu Yinan was looking for her.
