Somehow, Dearie Sheng was intimidated. He nodded like a good little boy. “Yes…”
The man adjusted his glasses. “Can you get her for me, please?”
There was an unspoken pressure in his words, which made Dearie Sheng run back inside to get An Xiaxia.
An Xiaxia put down her chopsticks and went to the door. The moment she saw his face, she thought, “I’m finished!”
It was An Yibei!
He had somehow found his way here!
Seeing how frightened An Xiaxia was, An Yibei frowned without being noticed.
He was holding a cardboard box in his hands, which Sheng Yize voluntarily took.
“Since my sister wanted nothing but to be with you, I guess I’ll have to leave you to watch her for a few days. I still have errands to run. Bye,” An Yibei said in an indifferent tone and left without saying a word to An Xiaxia.
An Xiaxia jabbed her fingertips together and fretted.
Growing up, this was the first time she had ever fought with An Yibei.
“What are you thinking?” Sheng Yize gave her forehead a flick. “I called Brother An and told him you’re here, or your family would be worried.”
An Xiaxia responded dejectedly to his explanation. She looked around and her gaze shifted to that cardboard box.
In it were her clothes, daily necessities, and her Miffy pillow…
After she ran away, as a brother, he should have been infuriated and come here to tell her off…
Instead, he had brought her all these things and let her stay with Sheng Yize…
An Xiaxia was overwhelmed with guilt. She now thought it was her fault…
After dinner, Dearie Sheng went to bed early, while An Xiaxia went back to her room, lost in thought.
She lay on her belly on the big bed and stared into the empty air while holding her pillow.
She still couldn’t figure it out after a long while and rolled around in frustration. Just then, she noticed that there was a toy bunny on the bed…
Why, wasn’t it the one she threw at Sheng Yize the other day?
That was why she couldn’t find it… He had taken it with him…
An Xiaxia picked up the toy and tugged at its ears.
“Xiaxia…” The mellow and pleasant voice rang out above her head. She froze.
Looking up with a goofy expression on her face, she saw that Sheng Yize had changed into his pajamas. His hair was a little wet and he smiled at her.
“Why did you take my bunny…” An Xiaxia pouted.
He leaned on the door and chuckled. “Without you around, I needed it to keep me company at night.”
An Xiaxia blushed. Seeing that Sheng Yize showed no intention to leave, she asked in confusion, “Sheng Yize, aren’t you going to bed?”
“Oh?” Sheng Yize raised an eyebrow. “Speaking of which, I’m actually getting sleepy…”
After that, he strode toward her on his long legs.
He jumped onto the bed while An Xiaxia cried out in surprise, and pulled An Xiaxia into his arms.
“Wh- what… what are you doing? I wasn’t telling you to sleep here!” An Xiaxia nervously tried to push him away.
Sheng Yize said in an unhurried tone, “But this apartment only has two clean bedrooms. Dearie Sheng has taken one. If I don’t share your bed, are you suggesting I should sleep on the sofa?”
An Xiaxia was speechless. “How… how about I go sleep on the sofa?”
She tried to sit up, but Sheng Yize only held her tighter. Her cheek was pressed against his chest and she could hear his heart thumping powerfully beneath her. Her face burned…
“Even if you want to go… I can’t bear to see you sleep on a sofa.” Sheng Yize’s voice grew deeper, with a mesmerising quality to it. “So, we’re sleeping together.”
An Xiaxia’s heart was racing. Suddenly, Sheng Yize lifted her chin and forced her to look into his eyes. He chuckled quietly. “Why are you blushing?”
