Chapter 48: Engagement
Tang Siyu woke up at seven and took the little guy downstairs to eat breakfast. After breakfast, she sent him to school. At around eight o’clock, she was left with plenty of time.
Just as she was about to get into the elevator, the door started closing so she hurriedly called out, “Wait a moment, please!”
She hurriedly took out a bag of vegetables and squeezed inside. However, when she saw the man inside the elevator, her pair of clear eyes immediately widened as a trace of resentment flashed through her eyes.
“You … Why are you looking for me again?” Tang Siyu glared at the tall man in fury.
“Who said I was looking for you?” Xing Liehan mocked her with a smirk
His voice was as cold as usual, without any warmth.
When he looked at her, his gaze did not waver at all. There was a sense of profoundness that she could not see through.
Tang Siyu couldn’t help but feel suffocated. She studied art, so normally, her heart was as calm as still water but she didn’t know why, every time she saw this man, her temper would flare up!
This made her very annoyed. She pressed the button for her floor and decided to ignore him. But she was a little curious, why didn’t this man press a button too? Did he have some business on the same floor as her?
The elevator was extremely quick. In a few seconds, it reached her floor. With a ding, it opened, and Tang Siyu immediately walked out.
Behind her, the sound of steady footsteps could be echoed throughout the hallway.
Tang Siyu bit her lip and turned around. She stared at him with a hint of embarrassment and annoyance. “You said you didn’t come to find me. Just what are you trying to do?”
Xing Lie’s thin, seductive lips twitched. He walked past her and took the lead, leaving Tang Siyu in a state of rage and embarrassment.
The man walked to the door in front of her, stretched out his slender pale fingers, and entered the password.
Tang Siyu’s mind went blank. Her eyes widened in disbelief as she blurted out a question, “Is this your home?”
Xing Liehan stared at her indifferently. The door to the house opened, and he stepped inside gracefully. The very next moment, he slammed it shut in her face.
Outside, a dumbfounded and stunned Tang Siyu was left holding a bag of vegetables.
God! She should have known that the three suites had been bought and decorated in such a luxurious and high-class manner belonged to him! The suites had large rooms that were over two hundred square meters in size, so why did they need to be completely rebuilt?
Damn it! It was actually bought by that bastard, and he lived right across the hallway from her house.
Could it be that she would have to face this man every day? She felt as if the rug was pulled from beneath her feet.
Tang Siyu scanned her fingerprint and opened the door. After she walked in, she vented her anger.
She stood up in rage and stared at her own door as if she wanted to walk through it and glare at the man living opposite to her. Damn it, why did he move here?
It completely ruined her mood!
Tang Siyu clenched her teeth and took a deep breath to prevent herself from dying from anger. Didn’t this mean that in the future, her son would be able to go over to his house and bond with him at any time?
If so, she might as well move into Su Xi’s house and avoid facing him every day!
However, she also knew that it would be inconvenient to stay at Su Xi’s house all the time! What if she had a boyfriend? Wasn’t that hamper her happiness? Thus, after thinking about it, she could only swallow her anger.
Tang Siyu walked to the balcony and took a look. She grit her teeth when she realized that her balcony could be seen from the nearby balcony. Wouldn’t she bump into him in the future this way?
She’d never been so mad before!
Tang Siyu had intended to practice the piano that morning, but now her heart was in a turmoil and she wasn’t in the mood.
She picked up the Ipad and watched the news on the sofa. As soon as she opened the browser, she saw that the third place on the search engine rankings was the engagement between Mu Fei and Tang Yiyi. The Mu Clan and Tang Clan’s reputations were enough to attract the attention of netizens.
Tang Siyu tossed the Ipad to the side. A bitter glint flashed through her eyes. She clenched her arm as an urge to cry welled up within her.
She sat on the sofa all morning, lost in thought, and when Su Xi called her at eleven o’clock. Su Xi was off to shoot a film again and probably would not be back for a week. Thus, Tang Siyu warned her to be careful.
At noon, she cooked two dishes to eat alone. Dinner was rather rich as the little guy was growing up and he had to keep up with the nutrition.
Tang Siyu tried practicing her piano for a while in the afternoon but always ended up playing a wrong note, making it impossible for her to continue practicing. She was in a daze until it was time to pick up her son.
She was a little worried that Xing Liehan would beat her to it, so she planned to go to school as soon as possible and bring her son over to her own home.
At exactly four o’clock, Tang Siyu pushed the door open and walked out. When she saw the tall and lofty security door in front of her, her eyes flickered with resentment. In the future, she and that man would be the only two people on this floor.
When Tang Siyu arrived at the school, she sat in a garden nearby and waited. Around 4:20, many luxury cars came from all directions to pick up the children.
Tang Siyu stood up and walked out of the garden. Her mood was dull as she nervously swept her gaze in all directions. Suddenly, among the crowd waiting to enter the academy, a tall figure was caught her eye.
The figure exhibited an unapproachable aura.
She had to enter the school faster than that man! She pretended to not notice his presence and ran in front of him to cut in line. She couldn’t help but turn around and glare at the man behind her.
Xing Liehan had a calm, elegant, and noble expression on his face as he stared unhappily at the woman who cut in line. However, he pursed his thin lips and didn’t say anything.
After entering the school, Tang Siyu quickly walked towards her son’s small classroom. Right behind her was Xing Liehan …
He walked over unhurriedly. A parent recognized him and immediately greeted him with respect. He indifferently nodded his head in response.
The moment Tang Siyu entered the classroom, Tang Xiaoxi called out to her, “Mummy, you’re here!”
Tang Xiaoxi thought that she had come alone, but then he saw his father and was pleasantly surprised, “Mommy, did you come with your Papa to pick me up?”
“Ugh no! He came by himself.” Tang Siyu explained.
Little Xi looked at Xing Liehan happily. “Daddy, will you always come to pick me up from school?”
Xing Liehan smiled and answered seriously, “Yes, I will.”
“Great! From now on, come and pick me up from school with Mommy every day.” The little guy was ecstatic.
