If she were ever injured, he would feel bad.
Huo Yunshen's gaze fell onto Xu Xiyan's bag. There were bundles of cash under the half-opened zipper.
"What were you thinking? Don't you know that the eastern suburbs aren't safe? A girl carrying a pack of cash alone at night… are you looking for trouble?"
He seemed to imply that she was stupid, that nobody was more foolish than her.
Xu Xiyan couldn't explain why she was running around with so much cash. She forced a smile.
"Oh, I was going to deposit the money, but I haven't found a bank yet."
Huo Yunshen felt uneasy and sighed.
"Xu Xiyan, do you know if you got injured… I…".
He couldn't finish his sentence. He blamed himself for not knowing her plans earlier.
I can only blame myself for not being able to protect her.
"So what if I were injured? What would you do?"
Xu Xiyan looked at Huo Yunshen curiously. Although she had sensed that he was blaming himself, he was actually concerned and worried too.
Him? Worried about me?
Is he angry because I was injured during the stunt double job?
Hahaha, what an adorable man. He even looks cute while angry.
Her eyes were clear with innocence as she gazed at him. Huo Yunshen flushed in embarrassment.
He deliberately put on a casual tone.
"If you were injured, wouldn't I be in trouble, too?" he asked. "No one could take care of me… I would have to care for you. You're really a trouble maker, you know."
After listening to his sloppy explanation, Xu Xiyan laughed, her voice bright as a silver bell.
She did not know why, but ever since Huo Yunshen appeared in her life, she had begun to feel more valued..
His words had warmed her heart and made her feel cared for. All the sorrows and the weariness of the day instantly disappeared, gone with the wind.
It seems that all isn't lost.
If the violin was sold, then she would just have to think of a way to buy it back.
Huo Yunshen didn't want her to be a stunt double. That wouldn't be a problem, as she was going to become a risk-free supporting actor soon.
Huo Yunshen did not send Xu Xiyan home. Instead, he ordered his driver to drive them back to his residence at Shengshi Yujing Apartments.
He had already prepared new clothes for Xu Xiyan, including new underwear and pajamas. They were all washed and dried and kept at his home, just in case she needed them. Now was the time to put them to good use.
After taking a shower, Xu Xiyan put on the soft cotton cartoon pajamas and went to the living room. She saw Huo Yunshen and spoke.
"Thank you, Mr. Huo, this was very considerate of you."
Of course I have to be considerate. I must be considerate with her. She is mine after all!
Huo Yun glanced at Xu Xiyan, who had just emerged from the shower. Her cheeks were red and her skin was radiant and supple. She had twisted her hair into a bun that sat on top of her head.
She looked like a cute little rabbit in those cartoon pajamas.
When she came over to the sofa and sat, he pointed to the glass of milk on the table, "Have some warm milk."
Xu Xiyan took the milk and drank it. Huo Yunshen suddenly spoke.
"Aren't you worried that I might've spiked the milk?"
"…" Xu Xiyan almost spat out her mouthful of milk. But she drank it, before answering calmly.
"Nope! I don't think you're that kind of person."
At this point, she trusted Huo Yunshen completely.
