Same Goes To You
Yang Chen was stupefied. â€œHow did you knowâ€¦â€
Lin Ruoxi puffed her cheeks and rolled her eyes.
â€œOn a normal day, you would have gone to the market to get breakfast.
But today, you decided to get dim sum which meant that you were thinking
about something. Not only that, I would usually hear your voice from a
mile away and you would greet me as soon as you walked in. But you were
quiet today so it can only mean that youâ€™re in a bad mood. Based on
your personality, you wouldnâ€™t even flinch if someone had you at
gunpoint. So it must be related to someone or something close to you. But
you donâ€™t look extremely worried so Iâ€™m assuming no oneâ€™s in
danger. I guess you are upset because of that person.â€
Lin Ruoxi analyzed and came up with the conclusion while still typing on
Yang Chen was dumbfounded.How does she know just by one look?he thought.
â€œAlso, Qianni and Mingyu are working here at the office now. The other
few vixens wouldnâ€™t have run into you in the morning, and even if they
do, they would definitely try to please you. Then thereâ€™s only one
possibility left. It has to be someone from the Yang clan. The one in
Beijing wouldnâ€™t bother you and the one in the military is busy so it
can only be either Mom or Yang Lieâ€¦â€
Lin Ruoxi hit enter as she finished her sentence together with her work.
â€œHubby, did I guess correctly?â€ Lin Ruoxi winked.
Yang Chen gulped and smiled bitterly. â€œYouâ€™re really skilled at
deductive reasoning. Have you always been so sharp or did you recently
turn this way?â€
Lin Ruoxi stood up and stretched her body while yawning. â€œItâ€™s part
skill part experience. Weâ€™ve been together long enough. A year ago, I
probably couldnâ€™t guess anything.â€
â€œStop being cocky, so what if you guessed it correctly? Can you guess
what Yang Lie did and said at our house then?â€ Yang Chen grumbled.
Lin Ruoxi walked to him and held his arm. â€œWhy donâ€™t you tell me
while I have my breakfast?â€
Yang Chen asked curiously, â€œYou want to listen to my boring story?
Arenâ€™t you busy?â€
Lin Ruoxi shook her head. â€œItâ€™s not boring. You can still take care
of me even if I go bankrupt but I canâ€™t save a broken family.â€
â€œLin Ruoxi, are you falling ill? Youâ€™re not usually like this.â€
Yang Chen was even more surprised.
The smile on her face faded. â€œWhat about you? It isnâ€™t like you to be
Yang Chen looked at her in silence with a stunned expression, as if he
had lost his voice.
â€œI donâ€™t know what Yang Lie said or did and I donâ€™t know what Mom
thinks about it, but you should know who she believes in since she has
chosen to live with us. Unless you think youâ€™ll lose to Yang Lie?â€
Lin Ruoxi pressed on.
Yang Chen looked down in silence.
Lin Ruoxi sighed and said, â€œFollow me.â€
Having said that, she walked out of the office and Yang Chen followed
suit without uttering a single word.
Lin Ruoxi brought him up to the topmost floor. From this height, they
could look over the city and watch the cars drive past.
The breeze caressed their faces, freeing them from their worries
They stood in front of the wire fence for a few minutes until Lin Ruoxi
broke the silence.
Yang Chen hummed as a response.
Lin Ruoxi turned around and looked at him. â€œHongyan looks much better
Yang Chenâ€™s heart skipped a beat. â€œWhy did you bring this up so
Lin Ruoxi gave a faint smile. â€œI thought she would still be feeling
down but it seems like you did a great job at consoling her.â€
Yang Chen tittered. â€œItâ€™s weird hearing this from you but I guess I
Lin Ruoxiâ€™s eyes glinted mischievously as if she was mocking him. She
grabbed the bag of breakfast from Yang Chen and said, â€œWhy donâ€™t we
Yang Chen was fine with anything but he stopped her and took off his
t-shirt before she could sit down.
Lin Ruoxi blushed. â€œWhy did you take off your clothes?â€
Yang Chen spread his t-shirt on the floor and told her, â€œSit on my
clothes. The floorâ€™s dirty.â€
Lin Ruoxi was caught speechless for a while but she recovered quickly and
sat down with a faint smile on her face.
Yang Chen joined her on the floor and watched her eat.
â€œYou havenâ€™t told me what happened at home earlier on,â€ Lin Ruoxi
asked while chewing a steamed dumpling.
Yang Chen passed a napkin to her before saying, â€œItâ€™s nothing much,
just that Yang Lie was pretending to be nice and Mom bought it. If I kill
him, Mom would never forgive me. But his existence will only cause us
more trouble. I bet he was also behind the vampire incident.â€
Lin Ruoxi nodded. â€œAre you feeling upset because Mom defended Yang
â€œI donâ€™t know, I was just thinking if I didnâ€™t forgive her, I
wouldnâ€™t be so troubled since we wouldnâ€™t have lived together.â€
â€œNo,â€ Lin Ruoxi said sternly. â€œSheâ€™s your mom and she loves you,
no matter what has happened in the past.â€
Yang Chen was stunned for a while before he asked her with a gentle
voice, â€œRuoxi, can I ask you something?â€
Lin Ruoxi nodded. â€œJust ask, weâ€™re husband and wife. You can ask me
â€œBut you might get upset.â€ Yang Chen pressed on.
Lin Ruoxi hesitated at first but nodded. â€œItâ€™s fine, just let me hit
you if I get upset.â€
Yang Chen opened his mouth as though he wanted to rebut her but his lips
curled into a bitter smile instead. â€œI was thinking what if your father
wonâ€™t ever admit that youâ€™re his daughter, would you cut off all ties
Lin Ruoxi froze before Yang Chen finished speaking.
Yang Chen hurriedly added, â€œItâ€™s okay if you donâ€™t want to answer.
Iâ€™m just curious as to why you place such high importance on family
life when it has given you nothing but pain in the past?â€
Lin Ruoxi shook her head to let him know that she was fine with it. â€œI
donâ€™t know why youâ€™d think that way, but I canâ€™t do it. You might
think Iâ€™m useless but I just canâ€™t do itâ€¦ I canâ€™t erase my
feelings, nor can I control and replace it with something else in a short
period. No matter how much I try to deny and despise it, itâ€™s an
irreplaceable kind of feeling. I might not ever be able to forgive him,
and I may even hate him for years, but heâ€™ll always be the one whom I
miss and hope to meet occasionally.
â€œThatâ€™s what family means to me. Iâ€™m jealous of you because of
that. At least your mom really loves you, unlike mine. I donâ€™t even
know if he really sees me as his daughter.â€
Yang Chen could feel the cold wind breezing past. It was as though his
heart was torn apart when he heard her words.
â€œHow could you be so silly? I would kill him without hesitation if it
were your wish.â€ Yang Chen placed his arms around her and pulled her
Lin Ruoxi giggled. â€œI know Iâ€™m silly but Iâ€™m trying to be
optimistic. I donâ€™t know how I can live on without thinking like
â€œOf course you can live on.â€ Yang Chen tightened his grip. â€œNo
matter what other people say, you are my wife and nothing can change
â€œSame goes to youâ€¦â€
Lin Ruoxi muttered, â€œI want to sleep, Iâ€™m so tiredâ€¦â€
Yang Chen couldnâ€™t help but smile. â€œWho asked you to force yourself
to keep working? Youâ€™ve been at it for more than a day straight.â€
â€œIâ€™m sleepy because I just ateâ€¦ Just let me lie down like this and
donâ€™t move,â€ Lin Ruoxi muttered and snuggled into Yang Chenâ€™s
chest, her voice getting softer and softer.
Yang Chen gladly obliged, allowing her to lie on his lap. He even hoped
that she could lean on him for the rest of the day.
Minutes later, Lin Ruoxi dozed off in his arms.
Yang Chen wanted to nap too. But less than 30 minutes later, a man and a
woman dressed in black suits showed up mysteriously.
â€œWell, well. What a lovely scene we have here. We might have dropped in
on the wrong time,â€ one of them spoke while grinning.
She was a blond, gorgeous woman. She looked flawless under the sunlight.
One wouldâ€™ve never thought that she was a two-hundred-year-old
