Chapter 23: I’ll Protect You, My Sister
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
The next morning, Sheng You and Kang Weizhen were both preparing to go to the office because there was going to be a board meeting today. Kang Weizhen was tying Sheng You’s tie, but she kept glancing at Sheng Yang out of the corner of her eye. “Yangyang, the driver will take you to school today, okay?”
Then a figure suddenly appeared in front of them like a gust of wind. It was Sheng Yuxi. He patted his chest, saying, “Mom, you forgot me. I can take Sister to school.”
“You?” Kang Weizhen wasn’t quite sure. Yuxi got his driver’s license only one year ago after graduating from high school.
Sheng Yuxi looked at Sheng Yang with a beaming smile. “I’ll take you to school today!”
Sheng You and Kang Weizhen exchanged a glance, gratified.
Then Kang Weizhen said, “Okay, you can take your sister to school. Drive carefully.”
“Got it, Mom!” Sheng Yuxi picked up Sheng Yang’s schoolbag and flung it handsomely on his shoulder.
As soon as he got to the garage, Sheng Yuxi’s phone suddenly vibrated. He picked it up and said brightly, “Hello?”
“Third Brother, are you at home? My family’s driver asked to take the day off today. Can you take me to school?”
Sheng Yue’s sweet voice rang.
She certainly wouldn’t take a taxi. Taxi rides were too bumpy and smelled unpleasant.
Upon hearing that, Sheng Yang looked at Sheng Yuxi with her amber eyes and said silently, “If you’re busy, I can ask the driver to take me.”
Sheng Yuxi waved and stomped anxiously out of fear that his sister would slip away without a word.
Then he said seriously over the phone, “Yueyue, not today. I have something urgent to attend to. I’m hanging up…”
“Hello, Third Brother?”
Beep beep beep—
He hung up. Sheng Yue almost couldn’t believe it.
She had been on great terms with Third Brother. They were literally as close as biological brother and sister.
This was the first time he had hung up on her.
What was so urgent? What was even more important than her?
Could it be that he got a girlfriend?
Thinking of this, Sheng Yue felt very uncomfortable.
This must be a very selfish girl.
Extremely displeased, Sheng Yue had to take a taxi. It sucked just as she thought.
What a bad start to the day.
“Yueyue, why did you come by taxi today?” At the school gates, Sheng Yue met up with her friend, Lou Shu, who looked at her with surprise.
Sheng Yue smiled awkwardly. “My family’s driver asked for the day off today.”
Lou Shu also had a good family; she didn’t want to be looked down on by Lou Shu.
“Oh, I see,” Lou Shu said as she then spotted a familiar and flashy Wiesmann. “Look, isn’t that your brother’s car?”
Because there was only one girl in the Sheng Family, Sheng Yue called her three cousins “brothers”.
Lou Shu’s eyes were glowing and her voice changed with excitement. “That’s great. Yueyue, Brother Yuxi must’ve come for you.”
Sheng Yuxi graduated from Yan City High School one year ago, and he was the most popular student while at school.
With good looks, good grades, and good basketball skills, he was Prince Charming to all the girls at school.
As his cousin, Sheng Yue also benefited from his popularity. Many girls approached her and appeased her, trying to win Sheng Yuxi’s favor.
Sheng Yue’s eyes also brightened.
Third Brother came to school? Why did he come?
The only reason she could think of was that he felt really sorry for hanging up on her earlier, so after realizing that, he abandoned that other girl and came to apologize to her.
