Chapter 235 - And the two boys fell onto the ground together.
He left for Beihe straight from her place.
That was right after he had just come back from his work trip.
In fact, he was so tired then that he had lost his voice.
Regardless of what he was feeling, he went all the way over to Beihe… for her.
Tong Xuelu felt that someone had shoved a handful of honeyed sour dates into her mouth.
She felt sweetness that spread to her heart and a hint of sourness that made her nose tingle and her eyes water.
“Thank you, Comrade Wen!”
When she heard about the Jiang family from Mother Xiao, she thought that Jiang Huarong had offended someone important, and she was pleased that he got what he deserved, not just for his crimes against others but also toward her siblings.
She never would have thought that it wasn’t so much that a god had heard their prayers for retribution after all.
All the punishments that the Jiang family had received were caused by external forces.
In fact, it was none other than Wen Rugui, who had facilitated matters the entire time.
Her limpid eyes were sparkling, and they were filled with appreciation toward him.
Being looked at by her like that, Wen Rugui’s heart pounded again.
Tong Xuelu’s eyes subconsciously glanced over the reddened tips of his ears, and she asked him seriously, “Comrade Wen, are you this nice to everyone”
Wen Rugui was taken aback a little, and in the next moment, he stuttered, “No, not like this.
I am only nice to you.”
As soon as he had said that, he realized that he may have gone overboard.
“That’s, that’s not what I meant……”
Tong Xuelu raised her brows a little.
“What is your meaning then, Comrade Wen Do you help other female comrades the same way all the time”
Wen Rugui shook his head nonstop.
“No, I did not help other female comrades.” Never had.
Seeing how the nervous Wen Rugui was acting like a kindergarten kid in front of a strict teacher, Tong Xuelu finally couldn't help but burst out laughing.
“Relax, Comrade Wen.
I am just teasing you.
I am very glad to hear that.”
The setting sun casted a glow on her already reddened cheeks.
Looking at her face, Wen Rugui wasn’t able to avert his eyes at all.
Suddenly, there was a knocking on the door and an unfamiliar male voice –
“Zhuzhu, are you in there”
Before Tong Xuelu could react, Wei Zhuzhu shouted out from the other side, “That’s my ugly Big Brother!”
Having said that, she ran off from Tong Mianmian and pitter-pattered over to open the door.
Tong Xuelu couldn't help but become curious.
The romantic atmosphere between them was all gone.
After a little while, Wei Zhuzhu walked inside with a tall young man.
The young man was around 17 to 18 years old.
He was tall and fair looking.
He was not ugly at all.
If there was one thing that they could nitpick about his appearance, it would be his tan.
He paused a little when he saw Tong Xuelu.
Then with a shy look on his face, he said, “Hi, you must be Comrade Tong.
I am Wei Ran, Wei Zhuzhu’s Big Brother.”
Tong Xuelu smiled and responded.
“Hi, I am Tong Xuelu.
I’ve heard a lot about you from Grandma Shen and Zhuzhu.”
Wei Zhuzhu interjected.
“Big Sister Xuelu, do you agree that my Big Brother is very ugly I’ve always felt that he was adopted!”
Tong Xuelu almost laughed out loud.
Wei Ran blushed even more.
He looked down at his little sister and gave her a fake glare.
“Stop with your craziness.
We are siblings from the same parents.
If I am ugly, then so are you!”
Wei Zhuzhu’s eyes widened,as though the realization had shocked her.
“You are lying! We don’t look alike.
I am like Big Sister Xuelu.
We are both beautiful!”
Looking at the two siblings bantering with each other, Tong Xuelu found their interaction very amusing.
Next to them, Wen Rugui frowned almost unnoticeably.
His heart almost stopped pounding.
The smile on Tong Xuelu made Wei Ran blush even more.
He handed over a bag and some vegetables that he had brought with him.
“My grandmother told me to bring these over.”
Tong Xuelu took them from him and looked inside the bag.
Inside the bag was a white dress.
The dress was done a couple of days ago, but the waist didn’t fit perfectly.
Shen Wanrong had insisted on making it perfect, which was why Tong Xuelu was getting it just now.
Tong Xuelu said with appreciation, “Thank your Grandmother for me when you get home.”
Wei Ran dared not look at her anymore.
He acknowledged what she said and left with Wei Zhuzhu.
Wen Rugui secretly let out a sigh of relief after Wei Ran was gone.
Tong Xuelu looked at the sky and said, “Why don’t you stay for dinner tonight, Comrade Wen”
Wen Rugui paused for a little and nodded.
Thank you so much.”
