PA Wen stared at Xiao Yaojing who was leaning against the wall of the elevator. He did not know how to comfort her.
After all, everyone knew that Lu Qichuan was in love with the young mistress.
Even with Sichen out of the equation, Lu Qichuan’s attitude for the past few years already explained it all.
He was still unable to forget the young mistress.
“I thought you women liked men who are loyal and infatuated? Isn’t this normal then?” PA Wen asked quietly. When they arrived at the right floor, PA Wen quickly stepped out and opened his apartment door and then waited for Xiao Yaojing to come over.
PA Wen only closed the door after Xiao Yaojing had entered.
“Now that Yezi is back, I really do not know what to do anymore. It seems like we are not as close as we were before. This means that Lu Qichuan stands a chance to go after Yezi now, right?” Xiao Yaojing asked PA Wen in a desperate tone.
PA Wen put down his briefcase before heading into the kitchen to get her a glass of water. When he heard her words, his lips curved into a slight smile, but his smile carried some bitterness in it.
When PA Wen stepped out of the kitchen, he had already regained his own composure. “It is normal for it to be this way. After all, the young mistress had been away for a few years already. After a while, everything will go back to the way it was before.”
Xiao Yaojing shook her head slightly as she held onto a pillow and leaned back against the sofa. “I can’t explain it, but I just feel that Yezi has changed a lot.”
“How could she stay the same?” PA Wen said as he sat down directly opposite Xiao Yaojing. “She had to bring up her two children all by herself. She must have gone through a very difficult time before she finally got to her position now. Therefore, how could she stay the same?”
Xiao Yaojing took a sip of water before looking at PA Wen. “Then, what do you think I should do now? Lu Qichuan will be coming home from overseas tomorrow. If he heard the news, the first thing he would want to do would be to go and see Yezi.”
PA Wen raised his brow slightly before replying, “Then you should go to the airport to pick him up tomorrow. That way, you would be able to see him first.”
Xiao Yaojing felt reassured after listening to PA Wen’s words.
“That is what I think too! Then, I have to go home now so I can decide what I am going to wear to the airport tomorrow! I am leaving now,” Xiao Yaojing said as she stood up and happily walked to the door.
PA Wen got up and walked Xiao Yaojing to the door. After watching her enter the elevator, he then smiled helplessly to himself as he thought, ‘You have already decided on what you were going to do, so why do you need me to repeat it for you?’
He knew that Xiao Yaojing had already thought about what she was going to do before she came to him. Although she looked like a very feisty and tough woman, when it came to relationships, she was still very reserved. Therefore, she needed an outsider to assure her that what she wanted to do was acceptable.
To Xiao Yaojing, he was that outsider.
After seeing Xiao Yaojing off, PA Wen received a call from Wen Shan.
PA Wen stepped into the kitchen to prepare dinner from himself as he listened to his sister speak on the other side of the line. “What? Matchmaking? Are you kidding me?”
“I am not joking. After all, you are already in your mid-thirties. Aunt is gathering all the young women in B City who have good qualifications and are not married so that you can take your pick. She has already arranged for you to meet one of the women this weekend. She is a university graduate and she is a very beautiful woman,” Wen Shan said smugly.
“Please let your brother off. I am doing fine the way I am now,” PA Wen said as he opened the refrigerator door to pick his groceries. He suddenly felt a glimpse of sadness, and so he quickly shut the refrigerator door and then decided to change his mind. “Forget it, I will go and meet her.”
“Why did you change your mind so suddenly?” Wen Shan asked, full of curiosity.
“Once she is done with me, it will then be your turn. I think that would be very interesting,” PA Wen said before hanging up the phone. He decided to make himself some instant noodles instead.
It would probably be good to meet someone else. Maybe then he would not be having any other thoughts that he should not be having.
