Chapter 18 – Don’t Hold Extravagant Hopes

Song Weiyi sat there observing both Mr. President and Xia Xingchen silently. At the same time, she gradually gripped the chess piece in her hand.

Women are always sensitive.

“Are you really alright?” Song Weiyi asked Xia Xingchen.

“Yeah, I’m OK.” Xia Xingchen replied.

“Then go ahead. And Mr. President, we can continue the play.” When Song Weiyi turned to Bai Yeqing, her voice got extremely clear and sweet.

Xia Xingchen quietly took a glance at Bai Yeqing, whose eyes intensified and facial muscles tensed. He seemed quite unhappy.

It looked like her boldness provoked him. But it was not her fault, because she wouldn’t shell crabs for others except for Daibai in normal times! If not for the chance to stay with Dabai for a long time, she would never do this job no matter who Miss Song was.

Her finger hurt badly.

Therefore, dealing with the crab’s shell became more difficult for her.

Bai Yeqing raised his sight slightly and found her upset and grudging.

With eyes darkened, he put down the chess piece and walked straight toward Xia Xingchen.

While Xia Xingchen was shelling the crabs attentively, a shadow covered her. She looked up promptly, only found Bai Yeqing standing before her like a huge mountain.

“Show me your hand.” Bai Yeqing requested.

Xi Xingchen was too shocked to react. He seemed impatient, and after a brief look, he pulled her hand over directly without any expression.

Xia Xingchen didn’t come to herself until she touched his fingertip, and her heart skipped a beat as her finger trembled.

“I’m fine.” Xia Xingchen was a little bit nervous, and her eyelashes jittered like the wings of a butterfly, while her voice became softer, “It’s just a small wound……”

“All fingers and thumbs.” Compared with the nervousness of her, Bai Yeqing looked calm as usual.

Though with a reproachful tone, no light of blame came into his eyes.

Her fingers were as white as snow, but the bleed shed by the wound was somewhat dazzling. Hence, Bai Yeqing ordered: “Go out and get a doctor to deal with your wound. Miss Song loves eating crabs, so let the butler send another servant here.”

So… she could drop this errand now?

The hidden bitterness in Xia Xingchen’s heart dispersed immediately, and she replied with a soft “H’m”, withdrawing her hand from his subtly. For a long time, her fingertip seemed to be warmed by him and was slow to cool down.

And that warmth passed from the fingertip to her chest, even burning her heart restlessly……

She gave a nod to Miss Song and went out.

While Song Weiyi kept staring at Xia Xingchen until she left.

Was this woman a simple servant? But why, Song Weiyi felt that Mr. President cared for her a lot.

……

Xia Xingchen walked out the side hall, and her heart was still pounding.

Staring at the wound for a good while, all of sudden, Xia Xingchen had no feeling of hurt at all.

But…

Just now Mr. President checked her wound right before the future First Lady, was he concerned about her?

The next moment, Xia Xingchen pouted in embarrassment, thinking that she held extravagant hopes.

How could he care about her? It must because of his mysophobia! Her fingers were stained with blood, and now if she continued to shell the crabs, he would definitely not eat them.

Xia Xingchen thought only this reason could make sense.

“Miss Xia, your hand gets injured?” Leng Fei was quite observant and saw the wound in her finger instantly.

“Oh, it’s not a big deal.” Xia Xingchen smiled, shaking her head.

The butler gave a gesture and said politely: “Miss Xia, please come with me this way, the doctor will help you with your wound.”

Xia Xingchen nodded, and she said to the old butler while walking: “Could you please send another person to the reception room? I fumbled the job just now.”

“It’s very condescending of you to do such things.”

“Please don’t say like that! One is our president, the other is the future First Lady. I would be pleased to do favors.” Xia Xingchen replied.

With a smile and some comfort, the butler looked at her for a long time and then said: “It’s great that Miss Xia can think so. It proves that Your Excellency selected the right person.”

She knew the reason why he said that, and she gave a wry smile: “Don’t worry about that. I would not hold extravagant hopes even though we have a child. I know we are not from the same world.”

“Sorry, Miss Xia, please forgive me for my superfluous words. I said these with good intentions after all.”

Xia Xingchen didn’t answer to his words. She knew what the butler said was right. And She shall not bear any desires or wild wishes.

… …

That afternoon, Xia Xingchen stayed upstairs and didn’t show up anymore. Standing at the window, she saw Bai Yeqing accompanying Song Weiyi all the time.

He showed her the whole manor, then led her to his chateau. At last, they played golf together.

Bai Yeqing got along well with Miss Song. Seeing the scene from a distance, she thought the scene a beautiful picture.

Gradually, Xia Xingchen felt a little upset. If Miss Song became Dabai’s stepmother, would she mistreat Dabai? As for her… she had to prepare to leave anytime when Mr. President gets married to Miss Song.

After dinner, Bai Yeqing saw Miss Song off. A short time later, the driver returned with Dabai.

As soon as Xia Dabai entered the door, he sulked and didn’t say a word to anyone. Then he locked himself directly in his own room and refused to come out.

Xia Xingchen didn’t know how to deal with it and just left him alone. After a shower, when she came out of the bathroom and was blowing her hair, the door of the room was knocked twice and opened straightway.

As soon as she looked up, she saw Bai Yeqing standing at the door. Then she turned off the hairdryer immediately and stood up, “Mr. President.”

“Have you got to see him?” Bai Yeqing asked.

“I did. But the kid is stubborn, I guess no one could persuade him.”

Bai Yeqing frowned and glanced at her: “Is his temper the same as yours?”

Xia Xingchen felt aggrieved and pouted, “I’m not as stubborn as him.”

Bai Yeqing looked at her: “Whether you are stubborn or not, you must have a fierce temper.”

Xia Xingchen was a little embarrassed. Apparently, he still remembered the two bites.

“Come. Let’s see him together.” Bai Yeqing said.

“Wait a minute.” Despite her wet hair, she just easily made herself descent before a mirror.

Bai Yeqing waited for her at the door and his eyes were caught by her body involuntarily.

She dressed in long conservative sleepwear over her knees, a silk fashion beautiful printing skirt. Looked like a pretty and quiet girl in a humble family.

Her white legs exposed from time to time as walking, which made one eager for. The wet and long hair trailed over her shoulders, making her pure but sexy.

Bai Yeqing’s sight became deeper and a little hotter.

At the same time, Xia Xingchen got up and turned back.

His eyes were too late to move away, then their sights meet in the air. The desire in his eyes was not wholly faded. She was stunned for that and flushed immediately.

“Is there… something wrong with me?” She asked nervously.

“No.” He shook his head and turned his sight away from her body. No special expressions just as usual. He asked as if without thinking: “How about your hand?”

“The doctor has treated it. It doesn’t hurt anymore.”

“H’m.” He nodded.

Xia Xingchen came out and walked on his right side.
