Once Xiao Hui and Chang Tian returned to the office, they immediately caught sight of several snacks and beverages on their desks. The two exchanged a glance before they saw a man sitting comfortably with his legs crossed and arched eyebrows, gazing squarely at them with excitement.

“Heavens! What’s going on?” Xiao Hui shouted from his desk then rushed towards over,  hastily shoving the food into his mouth.

“It’s all for you guys,” Xia Yao replied.

Chang Tian nearly jumped out of his skin. “Did something special happen today?”

“Nothing special. I’m just in a good mood.”

Xiao Hui was trying his hardest to open a pack of melon seeds. Unfortunately, once he did managed open it, the tear was so large that the seeds spilled all over the floor. When Xiao Hui arched his back to tidy the mess, Xia Yao promptly pulled him back up without hesitation.

“Don’t do that. Leave it to me.”

Hearing the offer, Xiao Hui and Chang Tian secretly exchanged another glance. What great deed happened on earth today to make Honourable Xia do the cleaning of his own accord?

It was true indeed that happiness and desperation are always linked together. Before meeting Yuan Ru, days and months steadily elapsed with nothing worth celebrating for Xia Yao. After overcoming the crisis that dragged on during the past few day, those two nuisances are finally gone. For Xia Yao, never before had he enjoyed such relief and refreshment.

Being off-duty that evening, Xia Yao was still on cloud nine as he held his colleagues’ shoulders. As they casually made their way towards the front office gate, their laughter and chats echoed the area.

“Hey Xia Yao, tell your brothers, what made you so happy today?”

Xia Yao pursed his lips as if pretending to be keep this secret, then he showed them a beautiful expression.

“I won’t spill the beans.”

“Xiao Yao! Are you deliberately provoking our curiosity? Chang Tian, he’s gonna keep us in the dark! What should we do now?”

In just the blink of an eye, Chang Tian and Xiao Hui teamed up and poked Xia Yao for an answer.

“Stop it, haha. Stop…”

Xia Yao pushed their teasing hands away, somewhat annoyed but also enjoying it. While the three were having fun, Xia Yao suddenly caught a glimpse of a familiar car parked not so far from where they were. His radiant face immediately froze along with his voice.

“STOP!” Xia Yao roared in anger.

Although, the two beside him immediately withdrew their hands, they still teased him a bit more.

“Why did you get mad all of a sudden? You were fine until we slightly touched you. What’s going on?”

Xia Yao tried to maintain a gentle expression while putting on a smile with much difficulty, “Nothing’s bothering. You two should just go home now. I’m going to get my car.”

After Xiao Hui and Chang Tian took their leave, Xia Yao returned to his previous bold expression and headed towards the car on the other side of the road.

“Why are you still here?”

Still holding a cigarette in between his fingers, Yuan Zong reached out of the window to shed away the ash that was hanging loosely at the end. His penetrating gaze swept over Xia Yao’s face without showing any signs of restraint.

Teetering on his last bit of patience, Xia Yao asked Yuan Zong, “I’ve told your sister already. Hasn’t she mentioned it to you yet?”

“She has.”

Xia Yao felt irritated being objected to listen to that tone of voice coming out of Yuan Zong’s mouth. Although, it was extremely blunt and discourteous, it was surprisingly calm at the same time.

“Then why the hell are you here!?” Xia Yao’s voice turned threatening.

Yuan Zong got out of the car, using his feet to put out the cigarette while his eyes remain only focused on Xia Yao from a very near distance.
