As long as Huo Yunshen did not have a child, the Huo family would have to choose a new successor, and Huo Jingtang was next in line.
The three of them left the rehabilitation center and went to the parking lot. “Brother, you go back first, I’ll meet you at the mansion,” Huo Yunshen said. He wanted to send Xu Xiyan home.
Huo Jingtang was afraid that Huo Yunshen might stand him up and suggested, “Hey, why not bring Jing Xi? She could take care of you there as well.”
Bring Xu Xiyan back?
Are you kidding me?
Of course, I want to, but we aren’t even a couple, how could I bring her home…
It’s way too weird.
“I don’t think that that’s a good idea. What if our family starts asking questions? It would make her feel uncomfortable,” Huo Yunshen said.
“What are you afraid of?” Huo Jingtang said. “Since both of you have nothing to hide, why not go back and clear up the rumors? Our uncles and aunties have been asking me a lot of questions; they want to know who your “girlfriend” is. It’s so annoying!”
“…” Xu Xiyan was rendered speechless. She’d never thought that her act of kindness would cause so much trouble for Huo Yunshen.
“But…” Huo Yunshen was still hesitatant. He had no idea how Xu Xiyan felt about him and wondered if it was a good choice to bring her home.
What if mum and dad begin to barrage her with questions? What if they hurt her?
Xu Xiyan knew Huo Yunshen was worried about her, but she was worried about him, too. She wanted to stay by his side so that she could take care of him. Going back with him didn’t seem like a bad idea to her.

“Sure,” Huo Jingtang promised. Huo Yunshen was no threat to his ambition as long as he was still disabled, even if he had finally found himself a girlfriend.
When they were back in the van, Huo Yunshen asked, “Jing Xi, are you sure you want to go back with me?” He just wanted to confirm.
“Of course. Do I look like I’m joking?” Xu Xiyan smiled. The smile on her beautiful face was brighter than the sun.
Huo Yunshen smiled, biting his lips like a shy little boy, and said, “All right then. But if my family starts to ask you questions you don’t feel like answering, then don’t answer them. If they keep pressuring you, just let me know. I’ll get you out of there right away.”
Huo Yunshen could already foresee what would happen the moment Xu Xiyan stepped into his house. She’d definitely be surrounded by his aunties and sisters, and they’d ask her lots of questions.
“Okay. Oh, before that, can I go get some new clothes?”
Huo Yunshen asked the driver to stop in front of a shopping complex. He wanted to go
