Su Yue and Yan Weihong simultaneously looked up at the staircase. Xuxu was walking down with a smile.
She hurriedly gave Su Yue a look. It confused Su Yue for she didn’t know what Xuxu was trying to tell her.
So, she ignored it and said, “Third sister-in-law, Bai Jing is coming over later. She wants to see the babies.”
Xuxu smiled and replied, “Sure. She can have dinner with us. I asked the kitchen to prepare a few more dishes. Su Yan will join us for dinner, too.”
Hearing the confirmation that her brother was back, Su Yue was elated. “When did my brother…”
“Your brother is so busy. I think it’s better if you stay here. He’ll be exhausted if he still has to take care of you after an entire day of work.”
Xuxu interrupted Su Yue.
Finally, she understood what Xuxu was trying to hint to her earlier. She stuck her tongue out at Xuxu playfully.
Second Uncle thought that she was living at her brother’s place the past few days.
She had almost forgotten that her second uncle and second aunt didn’t know about her relationship with Uncle Ming.
Before Su Yue could reply, Yan Weihong said, “Su Yue, your third sister-in-law is right. Let your brother focus on his work. He still has a lot to learn.”
Su Yue obediently nodded.
She then grabbed Xuxu’s elbow and said, “Third sister-in-law, let’s go upstairs.”
Bai Jing was coming over in the evening, and her brother was back as well. She was ecstatic.
She momentarily forgot her unhappiness about Ming Ansheng visiting Meiduo in Country M.
As both of them headed upstairs, Xuxu looked downwards and her gaze swept over to the back of Su Yue’s palms. She saw the red patches on her skin, and the oil, which made it shiny.
She anxiously grabbed her hands and asked, “What happened to your hands?”
Su Yue looked down at her hands as well. She smiled and shook her head, saying, “It’s fine. I accidentally scalded myself when I was getting myself a glass of water.”
She turned her hands over to hide her wounds from view.
Xuxu didn’t think into it and softly chided, “Why were you so careless? What did you apply to it?”
She grabbed her hands and placed them under her nose. She frowned and said, “You applied sesame oil?”
Su Yue nodded. “I couldn’t find any cream for burns so applied some sesame oil. I checked online, and it states that it helps.”
“Let’s go. I’ll get you the medicine.” Xuxu grabbed her wrists and dragged her into the room.
She found the cream for burns and helped her apply it on her wounds.
She held the cotton bud on one hand and held Su Yue’s hand in the other. She carefully applied the cream evenly on her wounds, her actions full of tenderness.
Su Yue stared at Xuxu, warmth coursing through her veins. “Third sister-in-law.”
She suddenly called.
Xuxu looked up in confusion. She raised her eyebrows and asked, “Yes?”
Su Yue asked, “Does perseverance guarantee success?”
Her bright eyes glimmered and Xuxu’s heart ached.
Xuxu grabbed her wrist, her grip unconsciously tightened around her hands. She pressed her lips and smiled. She softly said, “Perseverance doesn’t guarantee success, but the lack of perseverance guarantees failure.”
She bowed her head and continued applying the ointment for Su Yue.
Because Su Yue’s hands were fair and dainty, the red marks were extremely obvious. There were even blisters in some areas.
“It’s almost new year’s. Stay at home until then. If he wants to meet you, he has to come over,” Xuxu instructed with an underlying unhappiness in her tone.
Su Yue detected her unhappiness and agreed. She observed Xuxu for a moment before pursing her lips. “When did my brother come back?”
