Chapter 13.2 – A Murder
“Why don’t you eat first before you leave?” Zhou Yun Sheng rolled onto the sofa and held onto a long pillow.
“I have to rush to a business dinner. All right, I’m leaving. Don’t go to bed immediately when you’re full. It’s not good for your stomach.” Xue Zi Xuan reminded him tirelessly. He saw that the teenager had closed his eyes and seemed to be falling asleep, so he quickly pinched his nose, and added, “But you also can’t skip food and go to bed on an empty stomach. Get up and eat something, do you hear me? Xiao Yi, little rooster.”
“Who are you calling a little rooster?” Zhou Yun Sheng suddenly opened his eyes. He flipped over and pressed Xue Zi Xuan onto the carpet. He hit him over the head with a pillow and aggressively demanded, “Why are you calling me a rooster, am I so ugly?”
Xue Zi Xuan held him by his slender waist. Half doting and half teasing, he said, “You’re still saying that you’re not a little rooster? When you’re angry your hair puffs up, and when you’re prideful you stick out your little chest. Whether you’re happy or not, you like to flutter around randomly, and you love crowing. Don’t you think you’re like a little rooster right now?”

Zhou Yun Sheng, who was smashing randomly with the pillow, stiffened slightly.
Xue Zi Xuan laughed in a low voice. He seized the opportunity to reverse their positions, pressed the teenager onto the carpet, and kissed him hard. His tongue stirred in and out of the teenager’s mouth, rooting out his sweet nectar.
“Okay, stop making trouble. Get up and eat. I can hear your stomach growl.” After the kiss, Xue Zi Xuan picked up the panting boy with the flushed face and carried him to the dining area.
There were a few home-cooked dished on the table with white steam wafting up from them. They have obviously just been heated up. The newly hired housekeeper was an honest middle-aged woman. Seeing the intimate behavior of her two employers, she did not show the slightest weird expression.
She placed the tableware down and then silently left. On the way out, she informed the newly hired driver to bring the car to the front door.
Xue Zi Xuan picked up a piece of braised pork and placed it into the boy’s mouth. Then he leaned over and held on to his greasy lips, licking slowly and gently, wanting to taste the first-rate delicacy.
“The new chef’s skills are very good.” After tasting, he appraised it fairly.

Zhou Yun Sheng waved his hand as if shooing away a housefly.
“Wait for me tonight.” Xue Zi Xuan kissed him a few more times, and then reluctantly left. As soon as he got to the door, he saw Xue Li Dan Ni coming back with Xue Jing Yi.
“Xue Jing Yi, why are you still not leaving? Do you remember what you promised me before?” His tone was flat and indifferent.
Xue Li Dan Ni seemed to be silently enduring. She patted her daughter’s arm comfortingly and said: “We came back to pack up our things. Then we’re leaving immediately. Zi Xuan, don’t just lecture your younger sister, do you remember what you promised me?”
Huang Yi’s reputation was getting bigger and bigger. Many people talked about him in the same breath as her son, saying that he could become a pianist as great as her son. This made Xue Li Dan Ni uneasy, fearing that some day the scandal between her son and Huang Yi would be exposed.
If it were before, when no one knew about Huang Yi, then she would never be afraid, but he was different now. He was so dazzling and excellent that he has attracted the attention of countless people. Him staying by her son’s side was just like a ticking time bomb. Sooner or later, the public would cotton on to their intimate behavior.

At that time, what would the public say? Xue Li Dan Ni, you have raised a gay son! Xue Li Dan Ni’s son and adopted son were incestuous! What on earth did Xue Li Dan Ni teach her children? Her decades of higher education were all in vain! Xue Li Dan Ni is a shame to the Li family. The son she gave birth to is a smear on the Li family name…
Such offensive remarks echoed in Xue Li Dan Ni’s mind. It made her sleepless at night and food tasted like ash on her tongue. She feared that the perfect image she had upheld for half a lifetime would be destroyed by her son and Huang Yi.
She was the most elegant lady in the capital, the most famous artist, and the happiest wife and mother. She could not afford to lose that persona! Ever since the piano competition ended, she kept seeing earth-shattering addendums in the newspaper, putting her on edge everyday. She kept fearing that one day she would see news about her son’s same-sex scandal appear on the front page.
That was why she finally appeared in the Xue manor today. Her daughter had persuaded her that ignoring and compromising wasn’t the best method, only by making Huang Yi disappear forever could they settle this matter once and for all.
