Chapter 30

Chapter 30 of 50 chapters

“How could you let Sister Yanyan and Big Brother leave just like that?” Chen Xiangxiang criticized Zhang An, and her tone was full of disappointment. “Big Sister Yan Yan is still a patient. If something happens to her on the way home, will you be able to take responsibility for it?”

Zhang An was dumbfounded. This was different from what he had imagined. Isn’t Miss Xiangxiang the most gentle, amiable, and considerate person?

Plus, I did it for her!

“I was waiting for you, Miss Xiangxiang…” Zhang An hurriedly explained. “Besides, Eldest Miss and Eldest Young Master took the Yan family’s car back.”

Chen Xiangxiang was still angry. I have to make myself uninvolved in this situation. “How is it because of me? I told you long ago that I can go back home by myself!”

The intensity of her tone and the look on her face frightened Zhang An greatly.

However, a few seconds later, she suddenly realized that the system didn’t hint that the favorability scores had decreased.

She suddenly turned around to look at Fu Yuhuai with teary eyes. “Yuhuai, I…”

Fu Yuhuai, who was originally shrouded in a low atmosphere and whose expression looked as though a storm was about to arrive, now had an unreadable look on his face. Despite that, Chen Xiangxiang could acutely sense that he wasn’t angry.

He’s not angry!

“The Yan family’s car…” Fu Yuhuai’s thin lips moved slightly as he said these words, and a dark glint flashed across his eyes.

He looked up at Chen Xiangxiang and smiled gently. “Alright, Xiangxiang, don’t be angry anymore. It’s not your fault either.”

Seeing Fu Yuhuai’s favorability score increase slightly instead of decreasing, Chen Xiangxiang finally felt at ease.

From the looks of it, I have completely conquered him. He really loves me so dearly, doesn’t he?

Since he’s the first man to completely fall for me, I naturally don’t mind being more gentle and caring towards him.

She reached out to hug Fu Yuhuai’s arm and shook it. “Yuhuai, thank you for being so understanding. Otherwise, I really wouldn’t be able to explain myself.”

Fu Yuhuai’s eyes flickered as he calmly pulled his arm away. “Since things have come to this, it’s not a big deal. I’ll accompany you to the Xi family mansion to explain the situation clearly.”

At the Xi family mansion…

After Yan Xi and Xi Yan got home, went straight back to Xi Yan’s room to study after having dinner.

The senior high curriculum had long already been taught at this time of the year. Xi Yan’s knowledge of the contents of the various subjects was rather vague, but Yan Xi didn’t intend to help him with that since Ye Qing was doing it for him anyway. Thus, she only got Xi Yan to complete a few selected questions before she explained them to him after he was done answering them. She explained the questions in-depth and drew inferences from those questions to other questions, which enlightened Xi Yan immensely.

Her way of explaining questions made the questions very easy for him to understand and master.

Yan Xi had even asked him to sort out the questions he had gotten wrong so that it would be easier for him to check and fill in the gaps in his knowledge and ensure that he wouldn’t be dumbfounded the next time he encountered similar questions.

The feeling of knowing that he was becoming better bit by bit was great. Xi Yan felt very energized, and he no longer felt the urge to retreat in fear after opening his textbooks.

The siblings studied late into the night. When it was almost 11 p.m., Butler He brought two cups of milk over and urged them to have an early rest.

“Young Master Yuhuai came in the evening, but he just sat down and said some things to Sir,” Butler He said. “By the way, Miss Xiangxiang said that she wanted to apologize to you, but I stopped her.”

Yan Xi wasn’t surprised. Fu Yuhuai’s here to explain the situation for Chen Xiangxiang?

She asked Xi Yan to take a shower while she went downstairs to the study on the first floor.

In the study, Xi Jingxing was sitting at his desk with his laptop lit up while Chen Xiangxiang was massaging his shoulders, and he seemed to be busy. A benevolent father and a filial child, what an endearing scene.

When Yan Xi walked in, the smile on Chen Xiangxiang’s face disappeared a little as she took her hands off Xi Jingxing’s shoulders and took a step back.

“Yanyan.” The smile on Xi Jingxing’s face had yet to disappear, and he was obviously in a good mood. “Why aren’t you asleep yet? You’re still a patient, so you shouldn’t overwork yourself. Remember to go to sleep earlier.”

Yan Xi sat down on a chair and said, “I’m here to tell you something. In the future, the Yan family’s chauffeur will be sending me and Big Brother to and from school. As for Zhang An, since I can’t order him around, then he’ll just…”

“What he did today was indeed very wrong. I have already punished him for it,” Xi Jingxing hurriedly said before he looked at Yan Xi.

He felt that it wasn’t a big deal. Moreover, Zhang An wasn’t an outsider. Zhang An was actually his sister-in-law’s brother, so they were related by blood. I can’t possibly fall out with him over such a small matter and end up having a bad relationship with a relative.

That servant of the Yan family is really too controlling. He’s firing someone so easily, and he’s not giving me any face.

“Actually, he’s worried about Xiangxiang because I instructed him to make sure that Xiangxiang gets into the car every day.” I instructed him to do so because I was afraid that Xi Yan would only be focused on hanging out with his scoundrel friends after school and ignore Xiangxiang. Girls have to be taken special care of.

Yan Xi looked up. “So, you mean that he can use that as an excuse to order me around?”

Xi Jingxing instantly looked embarrassed.

Chen Xiangxiang bit her lower lip with her teeth, her face full of self-reproach. “It’s all my fault. I shouldn’t have been busy with my club activities and forget to look at my phone…”

“You weren’t there, so you don’t know the full picture. Please shut up.” Yan Xi’s expression was calm, but her tone was indisputable. She didn’t have the time to mull over whether Chen Xiangxiang had done it on purpose or not. But she had to pursue the person who didn’t listen to her despite being paid by the Xi family.

She turned to look at Xi Jingxing. “So Dad, what’s your punishment for Zhang An?”

Xi Jingxing was silent for a moment and avoided Yan Xi’s gaze. “I think your suggestion is quite good. I’ll get him to specially chauffeur Xiangxiang in the future.”

Actually, he was very unhappy that the Yan family had sent someone to approach Yan Xi, but he couldn’t find any reason to refute it. Thus, his heart was still burning with anger.

The Yan family assigned a Rolls-Royce Phantom, which is worth tens of millions, to serve her. I didn’t even have such treatment! But I don’t have a reason to not let Yanyan sit in the Yan family’s car either…

He then simply pinched his nose and acknowledged it as his fate.

Zhang An has already promised me that he’ll be good at reading people from their body language in the future. There’ll always be a point in time when the Yan family’s chauffeur is unable to fetch Yanyan. At that time, Zhang An will be able to take advantage of the situation and get the upper hand.

Besides, Xiangxiang will also be helping to mediate between the two of them.

He felt that Chen Xiangxiang was a very good child, and felt that Yan Xi would see Chen Xiangxiang’s merits sooner or later.

Yan Xi wasn’t surprised by Xi Jingxing’s method of dealing with the situation at all. She nodded and said, “Okay.”

Chen Xiangxiang quickly glanced at Yan Xi and hurriedly lowered her head. She couldn’t help smiling.

Yan Xi then continued to say, “But if that’s the case, he’s not providing any services to the Xi family, so I’m afraid you’ll have to pay Chauffeur Zhang’s salary yourself.”

Xi Jingxing had heard Zhang An say this before and felt that it wasn’t a big problem. “Sure.”

This was Yan Xi’s goal, and since Xi Jingxing had agreed to it, everything else would be easy to settle.

“Then I have no objections to it. Good night, Dad.” Before leaving, she even smiled at Xi Jingxing in a good mood.

Her smile was as bright as the sun and as gentle as the moonlight. Seeing that, Xi Jingxing was almost in a daze.

But Chen Xiangxiang’s eyelids twitched for some reason, and an inexplicable uneasiness rose in her heart. But before she could say anything, Yan Xi had already turned around and walked out of the study.
