As soon as Yu Yuehan finished watching the video, he instructed the assistant to get to the bottom of the matter.
“Find this Xing Li woman, and bring her to see me!” Yu Yuehan narrowed his eyes.
“Yes.” When the assistant turned to leave and opened the door, the butler was already standing there and waiting to speak to Yu Yuehan.
“Young Master, Master Fan is here. He is downstairs.”
Yu Yuehan turned around, reached out to hold Nian Xiaomu’s hand, and walked out of the room.
Fan Yu was standing in front of the sofa downstairs.
When he heard the sound of footsteps at the staircase, he lifted his head slightly and saw Nian Xiaomu walking down. At first, his gentle eyes were filled with worry, but after seeing that Nian Xiaomu seemed fine, his gaze regained its calm.
The butler quickly served him some tea.
As Fan Yu sat on the sofa and looked intently at Nian Xiaomu, who was seated across from him, he kept silent for a few seconds before saying, “Have the both of you seen the news and video on the internet?”
Hearing this, Yu Yuehan did not respond immediately, but turned to look at Nian Xiaomu.
“Is the person in the video really my older sister? Was I really called Xing Xing?” Nian Xiaomu tried to keep herself calm as she asked these questions.
She could not remember the past.
In her confused state, she felt that she had seen the woman in the video before.
However, she had no recollection of what the woman was saying.
“Let me explain it to you. Your name was Liuliu,” Fan Yu said slowly.
“I got to know you over 10 years ago. At that time, the Fan Corporation’s main focus was on the domestic market. I was living with my grandmother and would occasionally pass by the courtyard of another house. That was where I met you. You were wearing a princess gown and sitting on the swing in the courtyard. You looked so delicate and fair that you looked like a porcelain doll on a display shelf…”
As Fan Yu reminisced about the past, his tone grew more dejected.
He hadn’t intended to bring up the past and had planned to keep it in his memories.
“I was shocked to see you and stood quietly at the fence outside the courtyard for a few seconds. Then, you suddenly ran over to me and said that you wanted to give me the doll in your hands. You even said that you’d never seen such a good looking big brother like me and that you wanted to bring me home to keep… That was the first time we met.”
As soon as Fan Yu spoke, the mood in the living room became somber in an instant.
Nian Xiaomu turned to look at Yu Yuehan nervously.
As expected, someone’s face turned as black as the bottom of a pot after hearing Fan Yu’s words.
His grip on her hand tightened as his lips curled into an ambiguous smile.
“So you’ve aspired to let men live off you ever since you were young.”
Nian Xiaomu: “…”
While she wanted to rebuke his words, she could not help but feel guilty after listening to Fan Yu.
It somehow felt like he wasn’t lying because this sounded like something she was capable of saying.
When her eyes met Yu Yuehan’s chilly stare, Nian Xiaomu stroked his palm as she softly explained, “I was young and ignorant. Don’t take it seriously!”
“Is that so? Didn’t you just say to me in the study that you wanted to make money so I would be able to live off you?
Nian Xiaomu: “…”
“You’ve always been unique from a young age. Although you looked like a doll, you were bolder than your peers and very outgoing. During the years I lived in my grandmother’s house, I would walk by the fence outside your house every day to chat with you.”
As if these deeply-buried memories had only happened the day before, Fan Yu remained absorbed in the past.
