With Su Lengxian’s return, the Su family became much livelier. Father and Mother Su had previously felt disappointed because of Meng Xinyan, but with another daughter’s return, they felt rather guilty. After all, it had been their fault at the start.
Su Lengxian had said that she would never ever return. However, now that she had experienced a great deal living alone, she found out that acting wasn’t as easy as she had imagined. Even though she had her elder brother backing her up, she needed to work hard too. She had really toughened up herself.
“Elder Brother, you’re attending the business meeting for the Su family’s sake. Don’t worry, I’ll take care of Yangyang with Father and Mother.”
Su Lenghan looked at Su Lengxian in relief. “You’ve really matured. The Su family doesn’t have any outsiders now, so just move back. Your parents will still be your parents in the future.”
Su Lengxian laughed awkwardly. “Elder Brother, I was immature back then.”
“You were too young. I don’t blame you.”
Su Lengxian looked at the strands of white hair on her elder brother’s head as he plucked at them one by one before the mirror.
Watching her brother do this, she almost cried. Her eyes grew damp, and she began regretting her actions. “Elder Brother, it’s all my fault, it’s all my fault… I was jealous that you were together with Yun Bixue, so I ganged up with Meng Xinyan to split the two of you up. Elder Brother, if it weren’t for you, you wouldn’t end up in this state as well. I was really foolish, Elder Brother!” Su Lengxian felt really remorseful now. Seeing her elder brother in this state, she couldn’t help but beat herself up.
In the past, she simply didn’t want to see her elder brother together with any other woman and had tried to come in between them. She didn’t feel comfortable looking at them back then. Now that she didn’t see anyone by her elder brother’s side, she realized how tired he looked, and she felt even more sad and remorseful.
Su Lenghan looked at how his younger sister cried and smiled while comforting her. “Why are you crying? I’m living a decent life now. If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t even have listened to anyone else after I made up my mind. Don’t you agree?”
Su Lengxian wiped her tears and answered, “You may say those words, but I still feel sad. Just look at you. You’re so young, but you already have white hair.” She thought that if she could turn back time, she definitely wouldn’t do the same thing again. She would never be unreasonable and would want only the best for her elder brother.
Su Lenghan sighed. “You’ve matured. Be good and find someone who loves you. Don’t be so stubborn anymore, alright? I made the right choice by asking you to go into acting. It has tamed your personality.”
Su Lengxian hit herself on her head and said, “Elder Brother, I feel so disgusted with myself whenever I think of those things in the past. I don’t even know what I was thinking back then. My brain had turned to mush. Father and Mother must have been really disappointed with me.”
Su Lenghan shook his head. Looking at the white strands of hair that he plucked out, he placed them by the side and sighed. “Everyone has a wild past, so don’t blame yourself anymore, okay? No matter what, you’re still our parent’s daughter. They still miss you and want the best for you. Take care of yourself. I have to go to work now. I’ll leave Yangyang to the three of you.”
Su Lengxian nodded. “Don’t worry, Elder Brother!”
After Su Lenghan stepped out of the door and boarded the car, he rested his head against the steering wheel. He recalled everything that Su Lengxian had just said and was reminded of Yun Bixue again. He thought about the times that they had spent together.
Su Lenghan sighed. He couldn’t rewind time, and they would never be able to return to their old times.
After securing the seatbelt, Su Lenghan drove to the Su Family Organization.
At the Qin family’s villa, Aunt Qin intentionally arranged for a family dinner and even took out the business meeting’s invitation card. She was trying to flaunt her current status in the family, and that she would be representing the Qin family in the said meeting.
Qin Huailing listened by the side, and a cold glint flashed across his eyes. The corners of his lips turned up in a faint smile—it was dark and ambiguous.
