An Xiaxia was embarrassed. How was she going to answer this question without offending either men?!
She was so conflicted that she forgot to cry. Looking at Sheng Yize and An Yibei in turn, she was suddenly struck by an idea. “Brother, you’re the most handsome and awesome brother in the world! Luv ya! Mwa!”
An Yibei narrowed his eyes at this. “Oh? Toadying up to me, are you? It’s not going to work! I need a definite answer, now!”
An Xiaxia looked disheartened. Her last resort had failed. What should she do now?
A charismatic low chuckle rang out in the room and Sheng Yize answered for her. “To Xiaxia, her family is always the most important thing in the world.”
The tactful answer flattered An Yibei, but wouldn’t embarrass Sheng Yize himself.
An Xiaxia wanted to give the witty Sheng Yize a big thumbs up!
An Yibei snorted. “I was talking to my sister. Did I ask for your opinion?”
An Xiaxia felt like breaking into an uncomfortable sweat. Here was the ultimate conundrum.
How did you deal with a big brother jealous of your boyfriend all the time? Could someone please tell her?
An Xiaxia tugged at An Yibei’s hospital gown and said gingerly, “Brother…”
An Yibei had always doted on her. He snickered and raise his chin proudly. “Since you said yourself that you’re coming back home, today is the perfect day for it. You’re moving back today!”
An Xiaxia felt so wronged.
“Plus, you’re a girl, and going in and out of a boy’s house isn’t all that appropriate. Sheng Yize will pack your stuff later. You can take dad’s car and go back with him in a moment. Hey, you, you don’t have a problem with that, right?” An Yibei looked sideways at Sheng Yize.
Sheng Yize knew he was mad at him and nodded with a smile without any protest.
After placating her big brother, An Xiaxia went for a walk with Sheng Yize in the hospital’s small garden.
She looked unblinkingly at him. “My brother is actually a very nice person… I…” She wanted to apologize to Sheng Yize, but didn’t know where to begin.
“Hm, I know that. He’s a wonderful brother and he loves you very much. I’m not angry at him.” He rubbed An Xiaxia’s little head. “Don’t worry, I’m not that touchy a boyfriend.”
An Xiaxia wanted to smile.
For her sake, he had cared for her family the whole time without any complaints.
But to any boy who tried to get to know her… he was the most touchy person in the world!
The two were immersed in their pink bubble when melodious laughter rang out behind them. “Brother Ah Ze, why are you here?”
That tone and that name almost made An Xiaxia’s stomach turn.
Sheng Yize frowned a little as well. Turning around, he looked a little surprised. “Songsong?”
Song Qingchen was in her blue-and-white striped hospital gown. She had no makeup on and looked very pale and weak. Her eyes, however, remained as bright and pretty as ever.
She seemed to screen out An Xiaxia automatically and held Sheng Yize’s arm affectionately. Her lively tone reminded one of a little girl. “Brother Ah Ze, are you here to see me? I’m so moved! Brother Ah Ze, I’ve been sick for days… No one ever visits me apart from my dad…”
The rumor was that no one but Father Song liked her after she had been reunited with her real family. She had had a pretty rough time these days.
Sheng Yize drew back his arm, leaving Song Qingchen no room for her fantasy. “I didn’t know you were sick. I’m here to visit Xiaxia’s brother.”
“I see…” Song Qingchen lowered her head and kicked at a stone, looking all fragile and touching.
However, a big smile had crept onto her face.
