Li Jingran stopped what he was doing and looked at the timid girl standing in front of him. He said patiently, "Ask away."

"Did I do something wrong that you hate me a little?"

Xu Wanwan stared at the man, sounding a little nervous.

"Why do you say that?"

After enduring for so many days, Xu Wanwan finally couldn't hold it in anymore. "Can you not be hot-and-cold to me? If I don't do well, tell me, and I'll change."

"But can you stop being cold to me?"

Her voice sounded a bit probing and a bit aggrieved, saying it in a low tone that can make people's hearts flutter.

Li Jingran's expression changed slightly, but his eyes softened. "Do you think I'm being cold to you?"

"Aren't you?" Xu Wanwan looked at the man, and the more she thought about it, the more aggrieved she became. "I've waited for you to come home for dinner every day, but you never came back."

"And you don't seem to want to see me. Your attitude toward me is really cold."

Listening to the girl's serious complaints, Li Jingran frowned slightly. Recalling what he had done before, he couldn't help but sigh.

It turned out that she had discovered it long ago.

Then, did her reaction now mean that he held a lot of weight in her heart?

Li Jingran stared into the girl's eyes and said leisurely, "Do you care about my attitude toward you?"

"I do!" Xu Wanwan blurted out without thinking, "I'm afraid that I did something wrong to make you angry, and I'm even more afraid that you'll kick me out."

After hearing that, Li Jingran's tightly furrowed brows slowly relaxed and he smiled faintly. "Don't worry, I won't kick you out."

"But if you continue to ignore me, I'll also feel very uncomfortable..."

Xu Wanwan pursed her lips. "If I make you angry, I can change."

At that time, the sun was shining brightly. The curtains were lifted by the wind, and a ray of light poured into the girl's back.

Her eyes were sincere and pure, and it was hard to refuse.

Li Jingran's hands by his side tightened slightly, and his voice was a little deep. "You're not wrong."

Xu Wanwan looked at him with an innocent face.

She only felt that this was the man's way of comforting her.

If she really didn't do anything wrong, he wouldn't have ignored her for so long for no reason.

So she must have done something wrong, but she didn't know it.

Li Jingran paused and continued, "I was too busy with work and neglected your feelings. I won't do it again."

Xu Wanwan looked at the man in surprise. "Really?"

Xu Wanwan could not hide her excitement at the thought of getting back together with him.

"Really."

Li Jingran got up and walked to the girl. He bent down and met her eyes. "I won't do it again."

After this experience, he had seen his heart clearly.

Deliberately alienating and hiding could not solve this problem. Instead, it would hurt only Xu Wanwan.

Xu Wanwan smiled happily. "That's great! You can continue to eat my cooking in the future."

"Okay." Li Jingran gently brushed the girl's hair by her ear, his low voice full of tenderness.

"Dad, Mom, listen to my explanation. It's really not what they said!"

In the Xu family, Xu Yue was shut outside the door as soon as she returned. She slammed the door hard.

Xu Zhongyi found her noisy and annoying. He stood at the door and said coldly, "What else do you have to explain? We've raised you up so much. We're really disappointed!"

Who could accept so many years of painstaking training and raise a vicious person?

"Dad, I know you're very disappointed in me, but I have a way to bring the Xu family's business back to life. Can you give me another chance?"

Xu Zhongyi narrowed his eyes and said disdainfully, "If even I can't do anything about it, what can you do?"

Xu Yue fell to her knees with a thud and threw caution to the wind. "Dad, Mom, please give me another chance."

"If I can't help the Xu family this time, I'll leave by myself. I won't drag you guys down!"

Xu Zhongyi didn't have any hope for her and said indifferently, "Since you want to stay, then stay. If I can't see any results in a month, you'd better leave by yourself."

"Okay." Xu Yue kneeled on the ground and clenched her fists.

After returning to the Xu family, she thought of all kinds of ways and tried her best to please Father and Mother Xu again.

But after a long time of hard work, they were still indifferent.

Xu Yue's heart was filled with hatred. If it weren't for the fact that she wanted to stay in the Xu family, she wouldn't have kept trying to please them.

Finally, when the opportunity came, she thought of a good idea. She planned to use Xu Wanwan's biological brother, Xu Yuchu.

"Yuchu, look what your sister bought for you." Xu Yue took out a whole set of handmade figurines made by a designer and said, "Do you want it?"

Xu Yuchu had just returned from abroad. He did not know what had happened at home, only remembering that Xu Yue was very good to him.

He said excitedly, "Sister, how did you know that I like this brand of figurines the most?"

"Because I'm your sister. How can I not know what my brother likes?" Xu Yue said and touched his head.

Xu Yuchu hugged his figurine and said happily, "Thank you, Sister!"

"You're welcome." A trace of malice flashed in Xu Yue's eyes. "Actually, Sister also wants you to do something for me."

"What is it?"

"Do you still remember Sister Wanwan?"

Xu Yuchu's face instantly fell. "Hmph, she's a bad sister. She's always angry with our parents. She's not as good to me as you are. I don't like her."

Xu Yue was a little happy, but she said deliberately, "You're still young. You don't understand your Sister Wanwan's difficulties."

"Sister asked for your help because she wants you to look for Sister Wanwan and persuade her on behalf of Mom and Dad."

Xu Yuchu said unwillingly, "I don't want to go..."

"Yuchu, can you just do me a favor?" Xu Yue squatted down and patiently coaxed, "If you promise me obediently, I'll buy you another figurine, okay?"

Figurines were Xu Yuchu's favorite items. She did not believe that this fifteen-year-old kid would not fall for it.

"Alright then, I'll listen to you."

Xu Yue suppressed the excitement in her heart and took out a pinhole monitor from her pocket and placed it on Xu Yuchu's palm. "Remember to secretly place this on Sister Wanwan when the time comes."

"What is this?"

"This is the monitor that Mom and Dad specially prepared because they were worried that Sister Wanwan wouldn't be safe outside."

"Remember to secretly place it on Sister Wanwan. Otherwise, she'll definitely be angry if she finds out."

Xu Yuchu immediately nodded. "No problem."

"Oh right, don't tell Mom and Dad about this. Otherwise, they'll be sad if they know that Sister Wanwan doesn't want to go home."

"I got it!" Xu Yuchu put the monitor into his pocket with a serious look on his face.

A cold light flashed in Xu Yue's eyes.

After the monitor was installed on Xu Wanwan, she would be able to eavesdrop on the Li family and maybe get some useful information.

At that time, it would be a piece of cake for the Xu family to turn the tables.
