After Xu Xiyan had gone into hiding, Huo Yunshen checked the surroundings before opening the door. He noticed Xu Xiyan's shoes were still at the front door and quickly put them away.
The doorbell kept on ringing. Huo Yunshen knew she wouldn't leave until he opened the door.
The door finally opened, and Huo Sanyan saw that Huo Yunshen was still alive. She let out a sigh of relief and said, "Oh, my little brother, I thought you were sleeping… or worse."
Huo Yunshen looked at Huo Sanyan and said, "Third sis, what are you doing here so late?"
"'Here to see you, of course," Huo Sanyan said, stretching her neck like a giraffe to peek into the house. "Can I come in?"
Huo Sanyan knew that her little brother didn't like people going into his house, which was why she had to ask for permission before going in.
"No, you can't."
But Huo Sanyan wouldn't leave that easily. She was there on a mission for their family. She returned like a member of the paparazzi and stalked her little brother. A girl had been sighted going into his house.
Huo Sanyan had been waiting outside, scouting out the place, and the girl who'd gone in still hadn't come out. That meant she was still inside.
If Huo Sanyan barged into Huo Yunshen's house at that moment, she could find the girl in there and reveal the truth behind the scandal.
If her brother did, indeed, have a girlfriend, then her parents wouldn't be in such a hurry for her to get married.
Huo Sanyan was relying on her brother to attain her freedom.
"I'm still going in, even if you don't let me," Huo Sanyan said as she took off her shoes and tried to push past.
"Third sis!" Huo Yunshen wanted to stop her, but she'd already taken off her shoes and ran like a cheetah.
She decided to pretend she had a stomach ache to avoid getting kicked out.
"My stomach hurts… Let me use your bathroom!"
She ran into the bathroom and slammed the door behind her.
Huo Yunshen's face darkened, but there was nothing he could do.
She's my sister, after all. He sighed.
Sine Huo Sanyan was in the bathroom, Huo Yunshen intended to let Xu Xiyan escape before she came out. But he wasn't sure where Xu Xiyan was hiding. He'd have to go looking for her, room to room.
Xu Xiyan was hiding behind some clothes in the changing room. She crouched in a corner and sat thinking to herself.
I'm Huo Yunshen's personal assistant, and there's nothing weird about our relationship… why is he so afraid of letting his family meet me?
Is it because he didn't want to have anything to do with me from the beginning?
Or is it because I don't have the right to meet his family?
Well… Since the Huo family is one of the most prominent families in all of Peijing, Huo Yunshen's girlfriend has to at least come from some big family, or at least that's probably what his family would expect.
No, no… What are you thinking about, Xu Xiyan?
Xu Xiyan shook her head.
I'm just Huo Yunshen's personal assistant, not his girlfriend.
I'm not even qualified to be his girlfriend.
I slept with him once and had his kid, that can't really anything now!
Don't think about the impossible.
Xu Xiyan forced herself to look at the reality. She was just a girl who was in debt, and was working for Huo Yunshen to repay it.
Wake up, lady. If you don't clear off that debt, then you'll have to work for Huo Yunshen forever.
Suddenly, Xu Xiyan heard someone coming in. She peeked out of the wardrobe and saw that it was Huo Yunshen in his wheelchair.
