When Lu Zhaolin dropped An Xiulan at home, she asked him to come inside. He told her that he should go as it was getting quite late in the evening. But who could win against An Xiulan? If she was determined to do something, she would certainly do that. In the end, she dragged him inside with her.
As they entered the house, she heard a familiar voice in the living room. Both of them exchanged a look. As they entered the living area, they saw Lu Xuan, Lu Xun and Gu Shangyan lying on the couches playing video games.
“Chubby, should I drop you at home?” Lu Xuan asked as he was playing video games.
Lu Xun pouted. “Ge, I won’t return until I meet Miss An.”
“You are so annoying, “Lu Xuan made a bad face. Seriously, it was so irritating for him when the little guy looked at his mom with googly eyes.
Lu Xun grumbled. “I just want to meet Miss An and my Jiejie.”
“Hah, “Lu Xuan huffed.
Gu Shangyan’s eyes fell on the two people standing near them and sat on the couch properly. “Please come in, Uncle Lu.”
Lu Xuan and Lu quickly darted their heads in that direction and saw Lu Zhaolin with An Xiulan.
“Hey, dad, “Lu Xuan smiled and Lu Xun hid the videogame that they were playing. The little master told his mother that he was going to meet his brother as the latter promised to help him with his studies.
“Hello, dad, “Lu Xun smiled innocently and the man narrowed his eyes at him.
“How are you, kids?” Lu Zhaolin asked as he entered inside.
“Jiejie, where do you go?” Lu Xun asked as he could see that his father and sister went somewhere fun. But how could they not include him with them? He felt offended. He wanted to throw a tantrum but he was too old to throw a tantrum.
“Where did I go? Nowhere!” An Xiulan said, looking everywhere but at them. She was hiding her gifts behind her back but the pink Barbie headband on her head was enough to tell the boys that she didn’t go to the office. If she told them that she went to an amusement park without them, they would throw a tantrum. Especially Lu Xuan!
“Stop lying, “The three boys said at the same time. “Xiaobao, get her phone. We will find out where they went.”
An Xiulan ran out of the room screaming holding her phone but the boys were running after her. Behind them, Lu Zhaolin was sighing, rubbing his head. If he had known that the kids would behave like this, he would have taken them with him too. But the thought of sharing his daughter’s time with anyone didn’t sit well with him. Let them fight and figure out themselves.
Later after the dinner, Lu Xun went back with his father. An Qinyan and Gu Yanxi were in their bedroom. Lu Xuan and Gu Shangyan went back to their houses. An Xiulan was in the garden listening to music while swaying on the swing. She was happy after spending time with her family but now that she was alone all on her own, her thoughts went back to why she was sad in the first place.
She was not just sad but she was pissed. She wanted to know why he didn’t text her back or who was the girl that he brought to his grandfather’s house last night. She wanted to ask him so many questions but she didn’t know how to ask them.
“If I don’t ask him, who will ask him? As his best friend, it’s my right to know what’s happening in his life, “An Xiulan said and stood up to leave her house. When she was outside his bedroom, she threw pebbles at his window. She didn’t go to his house but stood out and called him in her own way. She knew that he was at home because his Jeep was parked inside. He must come out and give her the answers that he owed her.
This time, she threw a big stone at his window and the glass of the window broke.
“Oh shit, “An Xiulan jumped in fright as she saw she broke the glass of his window. It was not her intention. She just wanted to make more sound but she ended up screwing up.
A few minutes later, an anxious Han Zixin in his white robe came to the window to find the little trespasser sheepishly smiling at him. He was taking a shower when he felt something striking against the window. He thought that it might be birds but he didn’t know that the same birds could break the glass of the window. Thank God, she didn’t throw the stone against his head.
“What on earth are you doing here?” Han Zixin asked as he opened the window and looked down. She was dressed in her pyjamas and shooting glares at him.

“Dancing on the street. Wanna join?” An Xiulan asked angrily.
Han Zixin didn’t know what he had done to offend her but he could literally see smoke coming out of her ears. For some reason, she looked pretty cute.
“No, thank you, “Han Zixin found himself replying. “Go home. It’s late. It’s not safe for young girls to roam on the road alone late at night.”
An Xiulan gaped at him. He wouldn’t even ask her to come inside. Was she really that useless in his life now? If it was old Zixin, he would have jumped out of the window to join her dancing. Not like she was in the mood for a dance but she was just giving an example here. This man in front of her doesn’t even care for her. Her big ego was bruised.
She had an urge to stomp on her feet. In a fit of anger, she turned back to go to her house and swore that she would never talk to him again.
When she went home, Han Zixin sighed as he looked at the time. It was eleven thirty in the night and it wouldn’t be right if he had asked her to come upstairs. Moreover, grandfather was still asking Song Xueyun to stay there and she asked Han Zixin to not tell An Xiulan about her sudden marriage as she wanted to tell her friend herself but she didn’t want to tell anyone before her parents. He didn’t understand women’s matters anyway. He would just let them deal with those matters.
When An Xiulan reached her room, she murdered her cute red heart pillow with a fruit knife, cursing Han Zixin. How dare he? How dare he behave like that with her? Was he playing hard to get? Oh god, it made sense now. He was playing hard to get. Fine, if he didn’t care about her. She knew what she needed to do!
The next evening, Han Zixin was at headquarters. He had a habit of scrolling his phone when he would be leaving for home. He was scrolling through his social media account when he saw Wang Yuxi had uploaded a new picture and he felt his blood boiling. No, he had nothing to do with what Wang Yuxi does all day but he had everything to do with the woman who was smiling at him like he was his whole damn moon and she couldn’t survive without him.
“Where are you?” Han Zixin asked as he called his friend.
Wang Yuxi grinned. “I asked my Queen on a date.”
“And she agreed?” Han Zixin asked with a huff.
“Yes, “Wang Yuxi laughed. “Am I not the luckiest man in the world?”
“None of your business, “Wang Yuxi said, before disconnecting the call.
Han Zixin immediately went to An Xiulan’s profile and saw that she had uploaded a similar picture and shared the location. He sat in his Jeep and drove to the location. It didn’t take him long to find Wang Yuxi and An Xiulan. He felt a deadly aura surrounding him as Wang Yuxi’s arm was placed on her waist and she was laughing at his silly jokes.
One minute An Xiulan was talking with Wang Yuxi and the next moment, someone grabbed her hand and dragged her out of there.
“What are you doing?” An Xiulan asked angrily as she pulled her wrist.
“You were on a date with him, “Han Zixin said with a hint of restrained anger.
“None of your business, “An Xiulan said as she tried to leave.
Han Zixin grabbed her hand once again and locked her between his Jeep and his body. “How is it not my business?”
“What does it have to do with you?” An Xiulan asked, annoyed.
“It has everything to do with me, “Han Zixin said.
“Explain, “An Xiulan said, crossing her arms over her chest.
“God, “Han Zixin ran his hand through his hair. “Why can’t you see? You can see everything clearly. You just love making me behave like a madman for you. Xiulan, don’t you think it’s getting too much?”
An Xiulan turned her face to the other side and mumbled, “I don’t know what you are talking about!”
