Chapter 203: Like a Husband Looking Forward to His Wife’s Return

“Brother Quan, do you want to come back and stay?” Chi Jiao hesitated for a moment before asking.


Previously, she didn’t stop Quan Jue from moving out because Zhu Limin was around.


In the future, Zhu Limin would never have the chance to return to this house again. Her father would not make things difficult for Quan Jue as Zhu Limin did, so she wanted him to come back to stay.


“Do you want me to come back?” Quan Jue asked.


Chi Jiao nodded.


“I understand,” Quan Jue said lightly. “Give me some more time.”


Seeing that he agreed so readily, Chi Jiao let out a smile and changed the topic. “Brother Quan, today is Xu Ye’s birthday. He invited all our cla.s.smates to his birthday party.”


Quan Jue’s eyes darkened. “Are you going, too?”


“Can’t I?” Chi Jiao looked at him with her innocent and honest eyes.


Her response made Quan Jue speechless.


He narrowed his eyes. “If I said you can’t, you won’t?”


Chi Jiao nodded without any hesitation.


“Go if you want to.” Quan Jue picked up a clean tissue and slowly wiped the corner of his lips. “I have nothing to do tonight, so I’ll go with you.”


“Huh?” Chi Jiao remembered that he had always hated Xu Ye. His decision was beyond her expectations.


“We haven’t caught the culprit who attacked us yet,” Quan Jue said lightly as he looked deeply at Chi Jiao with his obsidian eyes. “I promised your father to protect you. Of course, if you don’t want me to go with you, then…”


“I couldn’t be happier,” Chi Jiao said with a smile before he could finish his sentence.


Quan Jue swallowed the rest of his words and nodded in satisfaction.


Actually, he had wanted to say that if she wasn’t willing, then she wasn’t allowed to go.



At night, at the Xu residence.


The gorgeous living room was very lively. Xu Ye stood alone at the entrance of the living room, his eyes fixed in the direction of the villa’s door.


“Xiao Ye.” A woman’s gentle voice came from behind him.


Xu Ye turned around and saw his mother walking towards him with two gla.s.ses of fruit juice.


“Do you know what you look like right now?” Wen Yan walked to him and asked with a smile.


“Like what?”


“Like a husband looking forward to his wife’s return,” Wen Yan said with a smile.


Xu Ye’s lips twitched and his handsome face quickly turned red. “Mom, don’t talk nonsense. I’m just taking a breather here.”


“Mom also really likes the girl you like,” Wen Yan said as she handed him a cup of fruit juice. “When she comes later, you have to seize the opportunity.”


She had seen Chi Jiao at the Lan family’s banquet previously.


When she first saw Chi Jiao, she knew why Xu Ye liked her.


She knew her own son well. That young lady happened to be the perfect ideal type in Xu Ye’s eyes.


Most importantly, the little girl’s personality was indeed quite likable. She seemed soft and gentle, but she was actually tough and wasn’t one to be surprised by honor or disgrace.


“Of course,” Xu Ye replied without hesitation. “I’ve already prepared a surprise. I’ll officially confess to Jiaojiao today.”


The boy’s tone was full of antic.i.p.ation.


Although he was rejected by Jiaojiao last time, he didn’t intend to give up just like that.


He really liked Jiaojiao, and he was liking her more and more.


“Son, she’s here.” Wen Yan lifted her chin in the direction of the main door with a complicated look in her eyes.


That was because she saw a young man following beside Chi Jiao. The two of them walked side by side, and the scene was very pleasing to the eyes.


Moreover, the young man looked rather familiar.


But she couldn’t remember where she had seen him before.
