Xu Youyou covered her mouth and restrained herself from laughing out loud.
She felt that he was too good with his words and wondered if it was really his first time being in a relationship.
The duo was silent for a moment.
Only the sounds of their breathing could be heard.
Xu Youyou felt her ears going numb as she listened to the steady sound of his breathing.
After a while, Mo Shenbai said in a light voice, “Little friend, I miss you.”
Xu Youyou felt as though something was squeezing her tightly when she heard these words.
Despite his words, the smile on her face faded.
His voice was hoarse, and he sounded exhausted.
Mo Shenbai continued to say, “Rest early.
Xu Youyou pursed her lips before she replied softly, “Good night.”
After ending the call, Xu Youyou lowered her head and looked at the thick red packet in her hand.
His hoarse voice seemed to echo in her ears at this moment.
She felt as though a thorn was pricking her heart when she thought about his voice.
Her instinct told her that he needed her now.
‘I have to see him now…
Xu Youyou did not hesitate for too long.
She called Cang Ming before she quickly kept her red packet and charger in her backpack and changed her clothes.
It was getting late, and everyone was already resting.
Xu Youyou opened the door quietly and tiptoed out of the room.
She did not dare to make a sound.
It took a while for her to get down the stairs, and just as she walked toward the entrance, a voice suddenly rang out.
“Where are you sneaking off so late at night”
Xu Youyous body stiffened.
Then, she turned to look at Xu Jialu, who was leaning against the kitchen door.
She forced a smile on her face as she called out, “Brother…”
Xu Jialu held the cup in his hand as he asked, “Are you going to look for Old Mo”
Xu Youyou straightened her back and said in a hushed voice, “I just spoke to him.
I cant tell hes not in a good state of mind now.
He might need me.”
“What can you help him with” Xu Jialu asked with a mocking smile.
“How much do you know about the Mo family”
“I dont know anything.
However, hes my boyfriend now.
If he needs me, I must go,” Xu Youyou said.
She raised her head and looked at Xu Jialu with a determined expression on her face.
Xu Jialu thought about it for a moment before he asked, “Must you go”
Xu Youyou nodded without hesitation and said, “Brother, please let me go.
Otherwise, Ill definitely regret it.”
Xu Youyous intuition told her that if she did not see Mo Shenbai tonight, she would definitely regret it.
Xu Jialu was silent for a moment.
Then, he finished drinking the cup of water and set it down on the table before he said, “Lets go.
Ill send you to the airport.”
Xu Youyou sighed in relief and smiled.
“I knew you love me best!”
Xu Jialu scoffed.
“If you dont save me in the future, Ill tell Mom and Dad that you went to look for a man at night!”
Xu Youyou quickly waved her hand.
“I will, I will.
When Mom scolds you in the future, Ill definitely help you share the burden! Remember to tell Mom and Dad that I went to look for Lanlan!”
Xu Jialu did not say anything else.
When they arrived at the airport, Xu Jialu accompanied her to the security checkpoint.
He said, “Send me a message when you arrive.”
Xu Youyou nodded.
She was about to turn around and walk in when Xu Jialu stopped her.
She looked at him, puzzled.
Xu Jialu did not say anything.
His expression seemed complicated, and he looked like he was hesitating to speak.
Xu Youyou took another two steps forward as she said, “Brother, if theres anything, hurry up and say it.
Otherwise, Ill miss my flight!”
Since she had booked the flight at the last minute, she did not have much time left.
Xu Jialu cleared his throat before he said, “Remember to be safe.”
Xu Youyou grew even more puzzled.
She wanted to say, “Thats it” before she heard her brother speak again.
“If you really cant control yourself, remember to use protection.
Remember that men who refuse to use protection are scumbags! Understand”
Xu Youyou blushed immediately.
She glared at him and said, “Brother, what are you talking about Im not going to…”
Xu Youyou could not finish her words.
“Alright! Go! Ill deal with Mom and Dad!” Xu Jialu hastily said.
He felt awkward continuing this conversation as well.
He only forced himself to say those words earlier because he was worried about her.
Xu Youyou turned around and walked away.
After a few steps, she turned to glare at Xu Jialu again.
Xu Jialu stood with his hands in his pockets.
A smile appeared on his face as he looked at his sisters back.
‘Our Youyou has really grown up…
After watching Xu Youyou pass the security check, Xu Jialu walked out of the airport.
He did not drive for too long when he saw Su Lanxu standing at the side of the road with a huge suitcase as though she was waiting for someone.
He stopped the car and rolled down the window.
“Hey, isnt this Miss Su”
Su Lanxu was surprised to see Xu Jialu.
She leaned down and asked, “Xu Jialu, why are you here”
Xu Jialu said mockingly, “Does your family own the airport Are you the only one allowed to be here”
Su Lanxus eyebrows twitched slightly.
She straightened her back, too lazy to speak to him.
Xu Jialu pressed on the honk before he asked, “Do you want me to give you a ride”
“No,” Su Lanxu said decisively.
“Its not easy for you to find a cab in the middle of the night.
If youre planning to hire a car, you better be careful you dont meet a pervert.
Who knows if youll be abducted and brought to the wilderness by the pervert”
Su Lanxus expression darkened immediately as she said, “Shut up.
Xu Jialu, will you die if you dont speak”
Su Lanxu was about to call for a car, but after listening to his words, she was quite worried.
Xu Jialu smiled.
He got out of the car and stood in front of her.
“What” Su Lanxu asked unhappily.
“Compared to being abducted and violated, its better to suffocate from anger in my car,” Xu Jialu said.
After saying that, he picked up her suitcase and stuffed it into the trunk.
Su Lanxu wanted to stop him but thought better of it.
In the end, she could only enter the car.
After starting the car, Xu Jialu said, “I just dont want to see you making the headlines.
Dont feel so touched, and dont overthink it.”
Upon hearing these words, Su Lanxu could not help but feel a small prick in her heart.
Nonetheless, she pursed her lips and said, “Dont worry.
Even if youre the only man left in the world, Id choose a pig over you.”
Xu Jialu raised his eyebrows.
“Oh, so you like pigs…”
Su Lanxu: “…”
‘Ah! Why is this person so annoying
Su Lanxu did not respond in the end.
The car was abnormally quiet.
After a moment, he said, “If you dont speak…”
Before he could finish speaking, Su Lanxu said impatiently, “Shut up.
If you say one word, Ill jump out of the car and make you a murderer!”
Xu Jialu: “…”
It was three in the morning when Xu Jialu arrived in H City.
The city was asleep and quiet.
There were not many people at the airport as well.
When she walked out of the airport, she saw Cang Ming waiting by the side of the road.
Cang Ming, who was standing next to the car, called out respectfully, “Madam…”
Xu Youyou only brought a backpack with her.
She directly got into the car and headed to the hotel where Mo Shenbai was staying.
Cang Ming gave her the room card before he left.
