An Xiaxia’s hand slipped and the milk spilled with a plop.
There was no time to wipe her hand and she rushed out of the room right away.
Outside her room, Sheng Yize had a bag over his shoulder and was talking to Papa An in a low voice.
An Xiaxia trotted toward him. “Sheng Yize, where are you going?”
Was he leaving? Was he leaving her?
An Xiaxia felt a fist clutch around her heart.
Before, she had always thought that she was being forced to be Sheng Yize’s girlfriend, and so he didn’t feel that important to her.
However, the news of him leaving had utterly flustered her.
She finally realized how much space Sheng Yize occupied in her heart.
Sheng Yize turned around at her voice and couldn’t help but sigh when he saw the milk on her hand. “How old are you now? You’re always so clumsy…”
He couldn’t bear to leave her behind. How could he?
He took out a tissue, pulled An Xiaxia closer, and carefully wiped her hand clean.
An Xiaxia couldn’t care about anything else and asked again, “Where on earth are you going?”
Her eyes were glistening, as if tears were going to spill out the next second.
“Xiaxia, I heard about the incident with Yize… Our house is no longer suitable for him, and Lu Ke has found him a new place. He’ll leave us for the time being,” Papa An explained in a soft voice. He let out a sigh after a long moment and patted Sheng Yize on his shoulder. “I know you’re a good kid. Don’t give up. Stand up to it and there’s a solution to everything.”
Sheng Yize pursed his lips. “I know.”
Papa An went back downstairs to the cafe after that. He Jiayu and Chi Yuanfeng exchanged a look and returned upstairs in unison, giving the couple some room.
Neither one of them spoke in the room.
An Xiaxia wrung the edge of her clothes with a desolate look on her face, which pained Sheng Yize.
“Xiaxia…” He called her name in a low voice and couldn’t bear to see her like this.
He slowly cleaned the milk stain on her hand, then raised her hand and gave it a kiss. He chuckled. “Don’t be so clumsy next time.”
Instinctively, An Xiaxia turned her wrist and clutched his hand.
Her grip was so tight and Sheng Yize could tell that she didn’t want him to go.
As it turned out, the little girl whom he cared so much for and was willing to ruin his future to save was dependent on him as well.
“It’ll be fine. I’ll take care of it and come back to you as soon as possible. Alright?” Sheng Yize’s voice had never been so gentle.
An Xiaxia stared at him with unblinking eyes. She then suddenly dropped his hand, put her arms back at her side, and clenched her own fists.
“Sheng Yize, you’ll be fine. You have to be! Take care of yourself!”
She finished all those words in one go and wet her lips. She then summoned up her courage, stood on her toes, and pecked Sheng Yize’s cheek. After that, she ran back to her room as quickly as she could.
The girl nervously closed the door behind her and left Sheng Yize standing outside, looking dazed.
After a long while, he felt his cheek and the smile widened on his face.
It was just that things were turning in a direction beyond everyone’s expectations.
Emergency publicity measures by Endless Night had failed. All the headlines were now “Sheng Yize turned violent and assaulted Rong Che.”
Rong Che’s fans attacked Sheng Yize in the comments section of his Weibo around the clock. Some even gathered outside the Endless Night building with protest banners. Some fans even suggested getting the police involved…
An Xiaxia stayed awake the whole night, trying to think of a way to help Sheng Yize.
She figured it out at daybreak.
As a legendary warrior anti-fan, what were online insults to her?!
They were nothing!
Not only that, she also knew how to fight back!
