Xia Xingchen was confused. “What are you trying to say?”
“Do you know? My brother loved a girl. He can do anything for her but marry her. His marriage is used to ascertain his position. Even my own marriage is for his political purpose. What do you think of Bai Yeqing’s marriage? He has no choice. Even if he himself doesn’t want to marry someone, he has to do it. Xingchen, how can you be so silly to play this game with him? You will certainly get hurt.”
He said the last few sentences with emphasis and then took out a piece of the red invitation card.
Xia Xingchen could not tolerate the bright red color. She could feel the shortness of breath. Yu Zenan told her in a low voice. “This is Bai Yeqing’s engagement invitation card. Song Guoyao sent this to my brother to check. It’s only a draft, not the final version. But you know, Song Guoyao is a cautious person. If he could hire someone to design it and send it to my brother, you must know what’s gonna happen. Xingchen, there’s something we can’t change.”
Xia Xingchen didn’t know when Yu Zenan left. She sat on the sofa for a while, confused.
She did not realize that the tie dropped at her feet. She finally got the bravery of opening the card.
Bai Yeqing. Song Weiyi.
The six characters somehow made her cry.
It’s not that bad. The tie she just got for him can also be the engagement gift. The whole country must look forward to their engagement party. She might be the interpreter there.
Xia Xingchen closed the card. She suddenly noticed the band-aid and pulled it off. The short cut on her finger was almost recovered. But she could clearly feel the pain.
She didn’t feel it on the day she got injured but now the pain was pretty clear. It caused pain in her heart. That kind of pain nearly killed her. She couldn’t breathe.
She didn’t realize there’s someone knocking at the door until he knocked for a while. The man outside the door did surprise her.
That’s Xia Dabai’s chauffeur.
Xia Xingchen thought Dabai is here. But she couldn’t find him in the corridor.
“Miss. Xia, come back with me.”
“Little master refused to eat today. He said he wouldn’t eat unless he saw you.”
Xia Xingchen felt sad. How could he starve himself? She knew he was stubborn. When Bai Yeqing took him away from her, he used to refuse to eat. And that worked. He knew if he did it again, he could see her. She knew his little tricks but she couldn’t refuse.
“If he wanted to see me, why not just bringing him here?”
“We were going to bring him here. But the president just proclaimed that no one could take little master out of the house. And little master will be grounded from tomorrow. He couldn’t even go to school. Teachers will come to the house to teach him. I have no idea what to do.”
Hearing this, Xia Xingchen got mad. She didn’t understand Bai Yeqing at all. Dabai was her own son after all. Did he really need to forbid her son to come here?
“Okay, I’ll go with you.”
Xia Xingchen went with the chauffeur. Before she left the apartment, she took the tie with her. It’s okay to give him the engagement gift earlier.
She never thought she would come back one day. Last time she left she didn’t bring too much stuff with her. She knew one day she might need to take all her things away, or Song Weiyi would become angry when she moved in. But she never knew the day was today.
The chauffeur drove silently along the way. The colorful lights outside only brought her darkness and sadness.
She closed her eyes, trying to hold her tears back.
After a long way, the car finally arrived at the manor. The chauffeur opened the door for her respectfully. The butler and housemaids were so happy to see her back.
“Miss. Xia, we missed you so much. Not to mention the president, we were even not comfortable without you.” Said the butler.
Xia Xingchen didn’t say a word. She didn’t think Bai Yeqing was here.
The butler continued. “Both the president and little master want you back. Please don’t leave again.”
Xia Xingchen thought the butler had no idea that she’s thrown out of the house by the president. Though he was angry and he didn’t mean it, what he said still hurt her. She couldn’t ask to move back. As for now…
She won’t have the chance to move back.
“Is the little master upstairs?” Xia Xingchen asked.
“Yes.” The butler nodded his head. “Since the president said he couldn’t leave the house, he became depressed and refused to eat anything. He did even drink water.”
Xia Xingchen said. How could he be so stubborn? It’s 8 o’clock now, she felt starved without dinner. How would he feel for not eating anything today?
She put the tie on the table and went straight to Dabai’s room.
She could hear a housemaid from a long distance. “Little master, at least eat something.”
“I don’t want to eat.”
“Don’t you like this dessert most? Smell it. It’s good. You are gonna love it.”
“No! I won’t surrender!”
“No! I don’t wanna eat anything!” Xia Dabai lost his temper and asked the housemaid out. The housemaid turned around and found Xia Xingchen. “Thank god you are here, Miss.Xia.”
Xia Xingchen smiled. “Give me the food. I’ll handle it.”
The housemaid handed the tray to her. She walked into his room. Dabai thought it was the housemaid again. “Just go! I won’t eat anything! I only want to eat the drumsticks Dabao cooked for me!”
Looking at his back, Xia Xingchen could feel the tears in her eyes.
