“I told him to look after Xiao Rou at school. He’s doing his duty. He calls me about once a month to report to me,” Cao Yang said, satisfied with this situation.
“He’s just like his brother. Their family has a lot of intentions,” Cao An said. “In our family, the only person like that is probably only second brother.” Translated by The Novelst
Cao Yang felt his little brother’s bad habit of speaking carelessly hadn’t improved at all.
“Eh, eh, did you ask him to look after Xiao Rou? Don’t let him seduce her!” Cao An started to worry again. “That kid… his appearance isn’t bad, either!”
To be able to receive that kind of praise from Cao An meant that Hu Xuan didn’t look bad at all.
In reality, Hu Xuan was very good-looking. All the men of the Hu Family had good-looking features. The reason that Xia Rou of the past had a good impression of the Hu Family was definitely because of their good looks.
Cao Yang remembered what Hu Xuan had told him.
“Xia Rou is already very popular. There are a few boys crushing on her. She has some place among the girls at Nan Hua already, ever since she participated in the banquet at the Cao Family, there are a lot more people trying to get close to her.”
“But Xia Rou is a little wooden. It’s not a bad thing. She’s just… Mmm, doesn’t seem to like hanging out with the boys.”
“She’s quite okay with the girls, they talk and joke around. It’s just that she’s a bit cold to the boys. She seems to be sexually frigid… Eh, bro, I’m wrong, I’m wrong!”
“No worries,” He wasn’t worried. “That little girl hasn’t discovered that yet.”
“What if someday she discovers it? How can you be so careless?” Cao An snorted.
In his heart, he didn’t believe Cao Yang’s words, that Xia Rou hadn’t yet discovered relationships or feelings yet. That little kid could target his weak points every time she opened her mouth to speak. The matter between He Chengzhe and himself, she clearly knew everything from top to bottom.
To say that she hadn’t yet discovered her feelings yet seemed untrue.
He felt that she probably just hadn’t met anyone she liked yet.
“That’s why I’m telling you now, you should pay more attention to it in the future. She’s our girl. Don’t make her feel awkward in the future.”
Cao Yang felt that what Cao An said was reasonable.
That little girl. Who knew when she would discover such feelings.
He had also seen He Lili grow up and it was at this very age that her gaze toward him became strange.
“Also, our Xiao Rou ah, don’t think she’s still too young. She’s actually quite attractive and will be an adult in just two years. You better take it easy, don’t set your hands on our own girl.”
“Although she’s your little sister, she’s not blood-related. You better hold yourself back. Sigh, it’s too bad that she’s not our biological sister. If she was, that would be better!”
It was natural for Cao An to be unable to shut his mouth.
It looked like it couldn’t be helped, he needed to be taught another lesson.
Cao Yang’s hand drifted to his leather belt.
Cao An’s previous experience told him that the next step his brother would take was to grab the belt and hit him!
He immediately ran away, da da da sounding behind him.
“I’m saying the truth!” He even dared to turn back and shout.
Really had no fear of death at all! If you have the guts to say that then don’t run!
Cao Yang let out a “tsk,” and released his hands off his belt.
He had just been trying to scare him off. All his little brothers had grown up, so he couldn’t just smack them around like he had when they were young.
As for Xia Rou… What a joke, since when had his taste become so naïve?
She was just a little girl.
She hasn’t even discovered feelings yet, and hadn’t felt anything when he went nearer to her. She didn’t put up walls, nor did she even blush a single time. She didn’t look at him as a man.
Similarly, he was unable to see her as a woman.
Even if he wanted to see her like that, he would still have to wait at least two years.
His mind drifted unconsciously to the feeling of her hair flowing smoothly between his fingers.
In two years, this child… would probably grow into just his type, he thought.
Cao An hadn’t even run too far when he could already see Xia Rou running toward him.
It seemed like her training this entire year hadn’t gone to waste. Her body seemed much healthier compared to when she had just arrived to live with them. Even her face was redder.
She ran quite fast and hadn’t even broken a sweat.
But she had a constipated expression on her face, expressing a sort of “can’t take it anymore,” vibe…
“Big brother! Big brother! Hurry and come!” Xiao Rou seemed to be having a breakdown. “Cao Xing, he! He’s going crazy!”
Cao Yang: “…”
Cao An: “…”
What did Cao Xing do?
He made Xia Rou progress to such a state that she called him by name rather than “third brother”!
“Hurry and come, hurry!” Xia Rou ran to Cao Yang’s side to pull at his arm.
All Cao Yang could do was put out his cigarette to follow her back to the main building.
“What’s wrong?” he asked curiously.
“You’ll know when you see it!” Xia Rou helplessly replied.
Such a rare sight, what could Cao Xing do?
Cao An also followed them in. Translated by The Novelst
When they arrived at the entrance of the hallway, Cao Yang and Cao An went silent.
They deeply felt that Xia Rou had learned the language well.
At least, the way she’d described Cao Xing as “crazy” was so true!
Inside the living room, at the entrance to the stairs, was an enormous plushie bear on the floor, probably over 2 meters tall.
Cao Xing himself was ensconced within the bear’s arms, looking as if he was using it as a sofa.
He took the huge bear’s arms to cuddle with it, hugging it tightly to his chest, revealing in his expression how comfortable he was.
When he saw Xia Rou, he shouted happily, “Xiao Rou, why did you run? Quick, come and try this! It’s so comfortable!”
Although his mouth was obviously inviting Xia Rou to try, the big man didn’t seem to want to budge.
He wasn’t only obviously going crazy, but he was on his way to seek death.
He wasn’t far from death!
