“Am I really a jinx? All of them said that I was the one who caused the deaths of my adoptive parents…”
The tears that Nian Xiaomu had tried so hard to restrain trickled down from her eyes.
The weak and frail self that she was unwilling to show others was recklessly revealed to Yu Yuehan.
Just like a kid, she lifted up her head in confusion and looked at him.
She wanted his comfort.
“You are not a jinx!” Yu Yuehan’s heart ached terribly when he met her tear-filled eyes.
Reaching out, he drew her into his embrace.
As he hugged her slightly trembling body with force, he said in a deep voice, “Nian Xiaomu, you might not have caused the Xing couple’s death even if you are Xing Xing. There are too many dubious circumstances in this matter. We can only get to the bottom of this if we calm down!”
“But I remember that fire…”
“You might have misremembered it!” Yu Yuehan interrupted her and cupped her face with both his hands.
With his long and slender fingers, he gently wiped away the tears on her face.
His thin lips parted as he said, “Nian Xiaomu, don’t cry. I will lose my most basic judgment from your tears.”
“I just want to kill everyone in the Xing Family now so that this matter can pass.”
Nian Xiaomu: “…!!”
Nian Xiaomu instantly got so shocked that she forgot to cry.
Her eyes grew wide as she stared at him.
Why did she feel like she had gotten a shock when all she had wanted was comfort?
Along with threatening remarks…
When Yu Yuehan saw that she was no longer crying, he carried her in his arms and walked into the villa.
Just when he reached the entrance, he saw Xiao Liuliu, who was on her winter holiday break, building a snowman with the butler.
Xiao Liuliu had been addicted to building snowmen ever since she had learned how to build one with Nian Xiaomu the other time.
She would not return to her room if she did not roll at least eight hideous balls of snow every day.
Seeing that they were back, her little face that was red from the cold lit up. Carrying a tiny ball of snow in her hands, she ran toward them.
With her soft and squishy figure, she rushed to Yu Yuehan in no time.
She wasn’t able to stop in time and bumped into Yu Yuehan’s thigh.
She got so dizzy from the impact that she walked in circles on the ground.
Yu Yuehan could not help her because he was carrying Nian Xiaomu with both his hands. He could only watch helplessly as she walked in circles, got dizzy from doing so, then sat down on the ground.
She was still holding the snowball that she had just made with her tender little hand as she revealed a look of confusion.
“Daddi, Xiao Liuliu can see stars in the day as well…”
Yu Yuehan: “…”
Nian Xiaomu: “…”
Nian Xiaomu slipped down from Yu Yuehan’s arms the moment she saw that Xiao Liuliu had fallen.
Squatting down, she carried Xiao Liuliu up from the ground and patted her tiny butt. Worried, she was about to ask Xiao Liuliu if she was hurt.
Just then, Xiao Liuliu showed her the snowball in her hand, just like how one would show off his or her treasure.
“Mommy, Xiao Liuliu has made a little brother. Is it nice?”
After she was done with shaping “their family of three,” Xiao Liuliu was no longer content with her accomplishments and had already extended her claws to her nonexistent younger siblings…
Nian Xiaomu took a look at the ugly snowball in her hand.
If her son really grew to look like this blob of snow in Xiao Liuliu’s hand, she might never want to have a son in her entire lifetime.
However, Xiao Liuliu was still young, so Nian Xiaomu could not hurt her feelings.
Just when Nian Xiaomu was pondering over how she should reply to Xiao Liuliu and get the best of both worlds, Yu Yuehan had already walked up.
As he took a scan of the hideous looking snowball in Xiao Liuliu’s hand, he said coldly, “Both mother and daughter have the same hobby—you two love to keep collections of elder brothers and younger brothers.”
“However, you’re not as good as your mother, Xiao Liuliu. She only wanted good looking elder brothers when she was young.”
