Chapter 25: Keeping The Promise
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Huo Yanxi’s mind was in chaos because of Huo Yao’s matter and his attention kept wandering even while he chatted with Lu Xia.
After they finished their meal, Huo Yanxi drove Lu Xia home.
At the gate of the family villa, Lu Xia unbuckled the seat belt and asked him. “Do you want to come in for a bit? My dad has asked me several times to invite you over.”
Huo Yanxi rested his hands on the steering wheel. He cast a glance at the Lu Family’s villa and shook his head. “No, thank you. It is late for me to go in tonight. Can I take a rain check?”
Lu Xia was disappointed, but she hid that in the depth of her eyes. Maintaining her signature smile on her face, she said easily, “Of course. Drive safely. Goodbye.”
She stopped for a second and pretended that she had just remembered something right now. She winked at Huo Yanxi, and said in a pouting tone, “Don’t forget what you promised me in the past.”
Huo Yanxi was confused for a moment.
“You told me that you would drive me to school when the semester begins. Did you forget it already?” Lu Xia put her hands over her chest to show that she was hurting.
Huo Yanxi understood her meaning and broke into laughter, while shaking his head. “No, I have not forgotten about that.”
Lu Xia’s smile came back. “Good. Now, go home. See you tomorrow!”
Lu Xia pushed the door open and was about to get off. Suddenly, Huo Yao’s figure leapt into Huo Yanxi’s mind again. Almost subconsciously, he stopped Lu Xia. “Xiaxia.”
Lu Xia turned around and gazed at him, a bit of worry visible in her eyes. “Yes?”
This girl had beautiful eyes, and her delicate face was breathtaking. She was a cute and thoughtful young lady.
Huo Yanxi stared at her. All of a sudden, he smiled and shook his head. “Nothing. I just forgot the time that I should pick you up at.”
Lu Xia heaved a long sigh and replied jokingly. “You scared me. I almost thought you were going to go back on your word and say that you wouldn’t drive me tomorrow.”
Huo Yanxi denied it in a flat voice. “Nope.”
“Okay. Pick me up at eight.” Lu Xia knew that this was the right time to end the conversation.
Huo Yanxi nodded.
Then, Lu Xia waved him goodbye, and stepped into the villa. Huo Yanxi kept gazing at the gate long after she had gone inside.
Since his biological sister did not need a ride from him, he didn’t have to turn down Xiaxia for her sake. After all, Xiaxia was his sister as well.
With this thought, the remaining part of his guilt vanished.
Soon, he started the car and drove away from the Lu Family villa.
When Lu Xia went inside, her mom, He Xiaoman was sitting on the sofa in the living room. “It is so late. Did some friends ask you out?” She asked Lu Xia with warmth in her voice.
Her voice was gentle and in no way, was she blaming Lu Xia.
Lu Xia went close to her and began to rub He Xiaoman’s shoulder. “My big brother wanted to ask me for something.”
“Big brother?” Upon hearing these words, He Xiaoman frowned.
“Is it your foster family again?”
Lu Xia knew that He Xiaoman had always been holding the Huo Family in contempt, so she merely said, “hmm”.
He Xiaoman turned around to speak to her daughter in a sincere and earnest manner, “Didn’t I tell you not to see the Huo Family so often? I know that you are a kind girl. But your foster family is not good, especially your fake brothers. Don’t get so attached to them. They may take advantage of you, someday.”
Lu Xia lowered her eyes.
In her heart, she sneered. “You think that because you are prejudiced and shortsighted. You have no idea what they are capable of.”
