Chapter 90: Sheng Wenyang Returns (1)
Xin Siyue clearly didn’t place Chen Sinan’s words in her heart after seeing Zhong Qin. When she returned to Xin Family, she couldn’t help but be touched by how Bai Ning prepared the table of gourmet food in high spirits for her.
Aunt Chen helped carry the cooked dishes over to the table as she smiled splendidly at Xin Siyue. She said, “Madam knows that you will be home tonight and had been pondering over what dishes she should prepare for you since earlier this afternoon. She had been trying out different things in the kitchen since a long time ago. Young miss, all these dishes are personally cooked by Madam.”
When Bai Ning heard that her daughter was back, she wiped her hands and walked out from the kitchen. She smiled then said, “Are you tired? If you are, you can go up and rest for a while.”
Xin Siyue couldn’t help but hug Bai Ning after seeing her. She grinned then responded, “Mom, how can we finish all the food you cooked later on?”
“It’s ok, it’s ok. It’s because you seldom come home!”
Xin Siyue felt even more ashamed after hearing this. Because of her studies and work, she rarely came home. Xin Siyue smiled sweetly and grabbed onto Bai Ning’s arms. She said, “Mom, how about I find time to come home frequently in the future?”
“Silly child! That would be great!”
Xin Siyue looked at her smiling face and believed she definitely needed to return home more often.
At night, when the whole family was happily eating, Xin Siyue’s phone rang. She hurriedly ran over to the sofa where she had left her phone, and answered it after a couple rings. “Hello.”
“Where are you?”
“At home.” Xin Siyue answered subconsciously. Then, she realized that who else would the deep voice belong to if it wasn’t Chen Sinan? She hurriedly moved the phone away from her ears to look at the screen. It was a bunch of unfamiliar digits.
Xin Siyue recalled him taking her own phone to call himself. She looked serious and asked, “Is there a matter?”
“It’s good that you arrived home safely.”
“You…” Xin Siyue didn’t even get to continue her words when Chen Sinan said, “Rest well.” He hung up right after.
Xin Siyue glanced at her phone which displayed ‘call ended’. She was unable to comprehend what happened. What was he doing? Did he call just to confirm her safety?
Xin Siyue felt that this was becoming more and more unrealistic.
Xin Qiancheng watched as she stared blankly at her phone and asked, “Who called? Is there an urgent matter? The food is getting cold.”
Xin Siyue hurriedly answered, “Nothing. I’ll be coming.” She decided to just stop thinking about Chen Sinan.
It was rare for Xin Siyue was on vacation. After her nap, she woke up to shop a bit with Bai Ning. When that ended, she went straight to school.
The school was bustling with people during the anniversary of the founding of the school. Besides the students who passed by and forth, there were numerous senior brothers and sisters returning back to the alma mater.
The atmosphere around school was pretty good. After Xin Siyue strolled for a bit, she was nagged by a few junior sisters. They said that they recognized her as A City’s TV Station’s host. They had a lively discussion talking about how much they liked and admired her. After that, they wanted to take pictures and get her signatures.
Xin Siyue was amiable and approachable so she satisfied each one of them. When she signed her name for the last person, she got ready to leave. A girl with round glasses asked shyly, “Senior Sister Xin, I am from the Reporter’s Department in school. I really enjoyed your hosting in various programs so I want to interview and write a report on you. Senior Sister Xin, is it ok?”
Xin Siyue pondered over it and replied, “It’s not like you can’t.”
The group of girls were slightly excited and the girl wearing round glasses was in high spirits. “So Senior Sister Xin agrees?”
“It’s not really a problem. The main point is that I’m short on time. I have something else later on and after I’m done, I will be flying straight back to A City tonight. How about this? Give me your number and when I have time, I will set an appointment with you.”
“Sure, sure, sure! Thanks Senior Sister!”
