Chapter 423: Let’s See Who’s More Devious

Ruan Xiaoxiao was most proud of her achievements in art.

“Of course we’re going.” Jun Wanzhi looked at Ruan Xiaoxiao in admiration. “Xiaoxiao, it wasn’t easy for you to achieve what you have today. But young people shouldn’t be arrogant. You have to work hard and maintain your self-respect.”

Ruan Xiaoxiao immediately nodded and looked at her obediently. “Grandma, don’t worry. I will definitely remember your teachings.”

“Xiaoxiao has always been obedient. She’s much less problematic than Xiao Xuan.” Ruan Dechun’s face darkened when he thought of Ruan Xuan. He looked at Gao Fengxia sternly. “Fengxia, where did Xiao Xuan go?”

Gao Fengxia immediately broke out in a cold sweat.

Ruan Xuan had been out at a bar the night before and couldn’t get up this morning. He was still sleeping now.

Of course, she didn’t dare to say this here.

“He must have gone out to play again!” Ruan Dechun slapped the armrest of the sofa hard, his face filled with disappointment and anger.

“Brother isn’t feeling well today. He’s sleeping at home,” Ruan Xiaoxiao whispered to him. “Grandpa, calm down first.”

Ruan Dechun was stunned as he frowned at her. “Xiao Xuan isn’t feeling well? What’s wrong?”

“He caught a cold,” Gao Fengxia said hurriedly.

“Shall I go take a look at Little Brother Xiao Xuan’s illness?” Chi Jiao suddenly asked.

She could tell at a glance that Gao Fengxia and Ruan Xiaoxiao were lying.

“Sure.” Jun Wanzhi was worried about Ruan Xuan. When she heard Chi Jiao’s words, she hurriedly looked at Gao Fengxia. “Fengxia, I told you last time that Jiaojiao is really amazing. Look at my leg. It was cured by the medicine Jiaojiao gave me.”

“There’s no need for that. Xiao Xuan just has an ordinary cold. There’s no need to trouble Jiaojiao,” Gao Fengxia said with a fake smile, but in her heart, she was scolding Chi Jiao for being a busybody.

“Mother is right. Jiaojiao, my brother only has an ordinary cold. Your body is also quite weak. It won’t be good if you go treat my brother and he infects you with the cold,” Ruan Xiaoxiao said gently to her.

Gao Fengxia was afraid that Chi Jiao would insist, so after Ruan Xiaoxiao said that, she continued, “Jiaojiao, speaking of which, I haven’t given you a welcome gift since you came back. Since I’m free now, let me take you shopping. I’ll buy you whatever you want.”

Seeing how warmly Gao Fengxia was treating her, Chi Jiao blinked in confusion and looked at her with her clear eyes. “Auntie, we’re family. You don’t have to be so polite.”

“It’s because we’re family that I should give you a welcome gift. When your uncle found out that I didn’t prepare a welcome gift for you last time, he reprimanded me and told me to make it up to you,” Gao Fengxia said with a smile.

However, the glint in her eyes betrayed her inner thoughts.

Chi Jiao quietly took in Gao Fengxia’s scheming gaze and smiled.

She gave her signature sweet smile whereby she looked as innocent and harmless as a little bunny.

“Thank you in advance then, Auntie.”

Want to put on an act?

Let’s see who’s more devious, then.

“I’m going to the washroom first, and then we’ll leave for the shops.” With that, Gao Fengxia took out her phone from her bag, got up, and walked towards the washroom.
