“Really? How come I didn’t know that there were so many people thinking about me?” Xu Xiyan sneered.
She’d believe Su Rui’s words when pigs learned to fly. Xu Xiyan knew very well that Su Rui was the person who didn’t want her to return home the most, followed by Xu Xinrou.
Both mother and daughter had always dreamed of killing off Xu Xiyan; then they would be able to rule the Xu family.
“Yes, I’ve said it right. Everyone missed you.”
Su Rui looked Xu Xiyan up and down, and noticed that there was a big change to her temperament, and that she’d become more beautiful, too.
She sneered inwardly. How did she become more beautiful? What has she been eating for these past five years?
Su Rui was an extremely shrewd woman. Her eyes lit up when she saw the bag in Xu Xiyan’s hands. “Oh, what’s this? I thought you were just coming home. No need to bring gifts…?”
She snatched the bag from Xu Xiyan’s hands rudely and opened it, curious to see what kind of expensive gifts she had brought from abroad. When she looked inside, she was disappointed.

“Xinrou, you’re back! Why have you brought back so many things? Just look at you, always thinking of bringing gifts to your family. Never stingy!”
Xu Xinrou smiled sweetly. “Of course, I had to bring you and grandma gifts, mom. It’s not like I get to come home and see you all the time.”
At this moment, the matriarch of the Xu family came into the room, smiling. “Xinrou, is that you?”
“Yes, Grandma!” When Xu Xinrou stepped into the house, she noticed Xu Xiyan was present, too. She eyed at her warily, asking, “Mom, how come she’s here?”
Su Rui was an expert hypocrite. She explained to her daughter, with fake sincerity, “Your sister came back to visit. I’ve ordered the kitchen to prepare more food for lunch. It’s so rare that you sisters are both back home. We should have lunch together.”
