Just as Nian Xiaomu returned to the table, Matriarch Yu grabbed her excitedly and said, "You danced so well! That was the first time I watched someone match so perfectly with Yuehan on the dance floor. The two of you are destined for each other!"
"..." Nian Xiaomu was flustered by Matriarch Yu's compliments and turned to look at Yu Yuehan.
When he heard people praise them, he did not smile. Instead, his face turned even more sullen.
What was he up to now?
She was completely confused by him.
"Speaking of which, Young Master, my..."
Before Nian Xiaomu had even spoken the word "reward," she saw him lift his wine glass and gulp down the contents. He then slammed the glass onto the table and raised his eyebrow as he glared at her.
That complicated gaze seemed like he wanted to tear her to pieces.
Nian Xiaomu felt goosebumps all over her body as he stared at her and even forgot what she had intended to ask.
When she came back to her senses, he had already looked away.
Since the start of the party, Yu Yuehan's hardened expression had not softened.
He had been pulling a long face the whole time, like someone owed him a few billion dollars...
Nian Xiaomu tried many times to find an opportunity to speak to him, but she was ignored by him.
She could only watch him blankly.
By the time the party ended, she still had not found a chance to speak a word to him.
She eventually carried the sleepy Xiao Liuliu, who was nestled in her arms, back to the villa first.
After bathing and changing the medical dressing for the little girl, Nian Xiaomu placed Xiao Liuliu on her princess bed.
"Baby Piggy was very obedient. He followed his good friends and walked along the river..." Nian Xiaomu sat by the bed with a story book in her hand. Xiao Liuliu was not asleep yet, but she had already let out a few yawns.
Nian Xiaomu had had a few glasses of champagne at the party and had also expended her energy playing the piano and dancing. She was already so tired that she could barely keep her eyelids open.
She braced herself and decided to coax Xiao Liuliu to sleep before returning to her room.
Yu Yuehan escorted Matriarch Yu back to the small courtyard before heading back to the main villa.
He had just walked to the door when the butler respectfully rushed forward to take away the jacket he was holding.
Yu Yuehan's looked up, his eyes sweeping across the living room. When he did not see anyone, his eyes darkened.
"Where's Xiao Liuliu?"
"Little Miss was tired, so Nian Xiaomu went to Little Miss' room to coax her to sleep," the butler quickly reported.
Hearing that name, his eyebrows furrowed and he tugged at his necktie to loosen it. Then he walked toward the nursery room.
When he reached the door, he found that the door to the room had been left ajar. It was quiet, but the light was still turned on.
He pushed the door open and stepped in.
In the room, Xiao Liuliu was sound asleep. Her soft and cuddly body was like a cub snuggled up in the covers.
Nian Xiaomu was sprawled by the bedside, completely still.
Yu Yuehan walked forward and found that she was still holding a story book in her hand.
She must have been exhausted from reading stories and passed out at the bedside.
The light bounced off her and imparted a glow. Her delicate skin was like that of a newborn's.
Her lips were pouting, and she was muttering something in her sleep...
As Yu Yuehan watched her sleep soundly, images of how she had shone at the party just now replayed in his mind.
First, it was her astounding piano skills. Then, it was her graceful dancing...
She was like a Pandora's box, always creating surprises for the people around her, and was so mysterious.
Since her gown had short sleeves, she seemed to be a bit cold, and her body shivered a little bit.
Yu Yuehan's eyebrows knitted together when he thought about how she affected him. He hesitated for a second before going forward to carry her.
When his hands touched her, her petite body automatically rolled into his arms!
