Everyone was chatting, and no one paid attention to Xu Youyou and Mo Shenbai.
Moreover, Mo Shenbai had lowered his voice so only both of them could hear him.
Xu Youyous face flushed red with embarrassment as she muttered softly, “But its still a few days away, right”
Xu Youyous menstruation did not come very timely every month, and her memory was not very good.
Previously, she had drunk a cold drink before her period started.
As a result, the next day, she was in so much pain that she turned pale and almost fainted in the bathroom.
Fortunately, Mo Shenbai found her in time and carried her to the bed.
If she did not refuse vehemently, he would have already sent her to the hospital.
In the end, he had asked the kitchen to boil brown sugar ginger tea for her.
Then, he also gave her a heat pack.
After a nights sleep, she finally felt better.
Since then, Mo Shenbai had paid special attention to her menstrual cycle.
He even spoke to a gynecologist.
As such, his knowledge had already surpassed Xu Youyous in regard to menstruation.
Before her menstruation, he would stop her from drinking cold drinks or eating anything that would exacerbate her menstrual pains.
He would even get the kitchen to brew tonics that would nourish her body during this time.
Mo Shenbai let go of her wrist and looked at her meaningfully as he said, “Alright, then drink it.
Dont cry to me when the time comes.”
Mo Shenbai looked very magnanimous when he handed the choice back to her.
Xu Youyou held the glass for a long time before she decided to set it down with an embarrassed expression on her face.
Then, she smiled and said, “I think I better not drink it.
Nothing is more important than my health, after all.”
The smug expression on Mo Shenbais face disappeared immediately as he gently pinched her nose and said, “Good.
Next time, Ill ask Bo Qi to bring the most expensive wine here for you to drink, okay”
It was the classic technique of advancing with both kindness and force.
However, Xu Youyou did not notice it.
She even thought he was trying to coax her so she said obediently and sweetly, “Okay.”
Under the dim light, the couple looked at each other, speaking without words.
At this time, Bo Qi suddenly looked over.
He felt like he was going to get diabetes when he saw how sweet the couple was.
Hence, he did not hesitate to target them.
“Lulu, arent you going to do something Theyre flirting with each other in public.
The world is really going downhill!”
Xu Jialus slender body leaned lazily against the couch.
He crossed his legs as he took a sip of his drink.
Then, he said nonchalantly, “Theyre a legal couple.
Whats wrong with flirting They can even kiss in front of everyone.”
“Brother…” Xu Youyoy glared at her brother for talking nonsense again.
Bo Qi kicked Xu Jialu playfully and said, “Hey, whose side are you on Although shes your sister, how can you take the couples side and trample on the pride of single people like me and you”
“How am I single” Xu Jialu asked lazily as he glanced at Bo Qi disdainfully with his charming eyes.
“What do you mean” Bo Qi looked at Xu Jialu suspiciously.
“Since everyones here today, Ill officially announce that Im planning to get married,” Xu Jialu said nonchalantly.
An expression of disbelief appeared on Bo Qis face immediately.
He said, “Is the bottle of wine I brought out tonight so strong You didnt even finish a glass, but youre already drunk Which blind girl would marry you”
Su Lanxu, who was holding a glass of wine and scrolling through her phone, laughed, seemingly agreeing with Bo Qis words.
Xu Youyou did not believe Xu Jialu as well.
“Brother, stop fooling around.”
Xu Jialu had never even been in a serious relationship before.
How could he be getting married soon
Xu Jialu said unhurriedly, “Ive made up my mind.
Im going to pursue Yun Youwei and become that little bastards father.”
Xu Youyou spat out the fruit juice that she had just drunk.
At the same time, the wine glass in Su Lanxus hand fell to the ground and shattered into pieces.
Silence descended immediately.
Everyone wore different expressions on their faces at this moment as they looked at Xu Jialu.
However, the sound of the wine glass breaking drew everyones gazes back to Su Lanxu.
Su Lanxu returned to her senses quickly and forced a smile on her face.
As though nothing happened, she said, “My hand slipped.”
Bo Qi raised an eyebrow before he gestured for a waiter to come over and clean up.
At the same time, Mo Shenbai took a piece of tissue and gently wiped Xu Youyous face.
His expression was calm; there were no fluctuations in his emotions at all.
Xu Youyou looked at her brother in shock.
“Brother, are you joking with us”
“Im not,” Xu Jialu said as he shook his head, “Its already past April 1st.
Why would I joke with you”
Bo Qi looked at Xu Jialu incredulously as he asked, “Did you work too hard and affect your brain Whos Yun Youwei She was Xie Tingxis woman.
Even if hes dead, hes still our brother.
You cant bully a friends wife!”
Bo Qi, Mo Shenbai, and Xie Tingxi had known each other since they were young.
The relationship between the trio was naturally better than that with Xu Jialu whom they had met later on.
“He was your brother, not mine,” Xu Jialu said with a chuckle as his eyes shone with arrogance, “Besides, hes nothing more than a pile of bones now.
How can you let such a young woman stay a widow forever Moreover, they werent even married.
When I marry Yun Youwei, well be getting married for the first time.”
Su Lanxu lowered her head and pretended to look at her phone.
However, she was actually looking at Xu Jialu furtively from the corners of her eyes.
The dim light concealed the darkness and desolation in her eyes.
“I think youve lost your mind,” Bo Qi said indignantly.
Then, he said to Mo Shenbai, “Youre not going to say anything to him”
Mo Shenbais calm gaze shifted to Xu Jialu before he said directly, “In the company, Im the boss.
However, outside the company, I cant interfere with my brother-in-laws decisions.”
Xu Youyou, who had already calmed down, said softly, “Are you worried about Yun Youwei pestering Mr.
Xu Jialu interjected immediately, “Youre thinking too much.
I just like her.
The girls I met in the past were too young and childish.
I suddenly realized I prefer older women.
Shes gentle, mature, and charming.
She even has a child.
This saves me the trouble of starting from scratch.”
When Xu Youyou was about to speak, Su Lanxu rose to her feet abruptly.
Without meeting anyones gaze, she lowered her head and said, “I need to go to the bathroom.”
Xu Jialu only glanced at Su Lanxu, thinking that she was acting strange tonight.
She did not even say a word to him the entire night.
He was not used to it at all.
Nonetheless, he did not dwell on it.
He continued to say, “When I get married, you wont be the best man since youre already married.
In fact, it doesnt matter if you attend the wedding or not.
All you have to do is give me a five-figure red packet.”
Mo Shenbai said, “If youre able to marry her, Ill personally give you a red packet with 100,000.”
Xu Jialu chuckled.
“Ha! Just you wait.
Ill definitely obtain the 100,000.”
Xu Youyou frowned.
Her bright eyes were filled with suspicion and confusion.
She did not understand why or how her brother suddenly fell in love with Yun Youwei.
Bo Qi stared at Xu Jialu incredulously for a long time before he finally said, “Crazy! Youre really crazy…”
After some time passed, Xu Youyou noticed Su Lanxu had yet to return from the bathroom.
She got up and went to look for Su Lanxu immediately.
However, she found that there was no one in the bathroom.
She tried to call Su Lanxu, but her call went unanswered.
However, she heard a familiar ringtone ringing from the fire exit.
When Xu Youyou pushed the door open, she saw a figure sitting on the steps.
The slim figures shoulders were trembling visibly.
She hurriedly walked in and sat down next to the figure before she asked, “Lanlan, whats wrong”
Su Lanxu only raised her head after a long time.
Her eyes were red, and the smile on her face looked extremely forced as she said, “Nothing.”
Xu Youyou naturally did not believe Su Lanxu.
It could not be more obvious that something was wrong.
She said, “Lanlan, if theres anything, you can talk to me.
Although I may not be able to help you, youll feel better if you talk about it.
Ill also be able to comfort you and give you a hug.”
Su Lanxu, whose emotions had been suppressed for a long time, finally could not hold back her tears.
They streamed down her face immediately when she heard Xu Youyous words.
