Chapter 9.2 – Children Are Debt
“Young Master, do you want to go see the young miss? Even in a coma, she was still calling your name.” Soon after Xiao Wang hung up the phone, he walked to the door of Huang Yi’s room to call Xue Zi Xuan.
“Do you also want to leave?” Xue Zi Xuan put down the file in his hand. His tone was very cold.
“No,” Xiao Wang shook his head. “Young Miss’s condition is really bad. You can ignore her, Young Master, but don’t upset her. She can’t bear it. I have to say, although you and the young miss are not related by blood, you still grew up together. Where you should place your affections, can outsiders compare?”
Xue Zi Xuan buried his head in the documents and seemed to have heard nothing. Xiao Wang sighed in his heart, and finally left the room unwillingly. At the last moment, right before he closed the door, he saw the young master twirl a strawberry in his fingers and fed it straight to the mouth of the young boy who was concentrating on playing with the computer.

It turned out that the young master did not lack emotions, but rather, he had put all his emotions on one person, so in the eyes of irrelevant people, he would seem so cold and heartless. What was an irrelevant person? Including Xiao Wang, it must be the same for the young miss, the master, and the mistress.
Xiao Wang’s grievances did not affect Xue Zi Xuan in the slightest. The next day, when Xue Zi Xuan learned that Xue Rui and Xue Li Dan Ni were on their way back after receiving a phone call from Xiao Wang, he straightforwardly wrote a check and dismissed Xiao Wang.
Xiao Wang, who had always felt lucky in his heart, was blindsided as he carried his luggage and left. Working for the Xue family, not only did he get a high monthly salary and bonuses, he could also easily have access to all kinds of luxury cars from the garage. The working conditions were extremely good. It was precisely because of this job that he could afford to buy a house in the heart of the city, marry the goddess of his dreams, and offer his son the best school.
As the saying went, from frugality to extravagance was easy, but it was hard to become frugal after being accustomed to luxury. He was just a lousy driver without a diploma and without any capabilities. Where was he going to find a better job to support his family?
Thinking up to here, Xiao Wang was finally struck with red-hot remorse, but he quickly smiled again. He could still anonymously strike the Xue family fiercely with a crime of murder. Xue Rui for the sake of his daughter, Xue Zi Xuan for the sake of Huang Yi, both sides would have to pay up money. They had to. He didn’t have to worry about his source of livelihood for the future anymore. Perhaps he could even make a fortune.
In the end, Xue Zi Xuan was just an ignorant child and unreliable when it came to handling affairs. As an elder in the family, how could he, Xiao Wang, be driven away so easily? Was Xue Zi Xuan not afraid of provoking his anger?
Xiao Wang thought about this again and again for a long time. His heart, spleen, lung, and kidney, he felt comfortable and at ease all over. Like so, he took large strides down the mountain path.
At the same time, Xue Zi Xuan was bringing Zhou Yun Sheng to a high-class clothing store to try on some formal attire.
“Young Master Xue, please wait a moment, I will go get the clothes.” The clerk served two cups of hot tea and looked over the youth’s excessively delicate face.
Xue Zi Xuan bowed his head and stooped to help the teenager take off his shoes. He knew that the youth was lazy, if he could sit, he would not stand. And it was not enough to have some place to sit. He would also kick off his shoes and rest his two long, straight legs on the seats in the most comfortable position.
Sure enough, Zhou Yun Sheng bent his legs very tacitly, curled up on the sofa, and shifted his butt left and right. In the end, he still felt the most comfortable when nestling within the young man’s embrace. He straightforwardly pushed one of Xue Zi Xuan’s arm aside and directly leaned against his chest. He held a tablet computer in his hands and played on it very happily.
Xue Zi Xuan chuckled lowly and twisted the hair by the side of Zhou Yun Sheng’s cheek again and again. His lips pressed against his powder white cheek, as if he would kiss him at any time.
The intimate posture of the two attracted the attention of not only the staff but also the customers. They were all people from the same social circle of life, and most of them knew each other.
But they have only ever seen Xue Zi Xuan as a lone operator, the proud and aloof piano emperor. When have they ever seen him so tender and affectionate?

Everyone examined the pair for a long time, but they didn’t dare to go up and say hello for fear of making a mistake. At this moment, the clerk came out with two suits of the same style and color, and led the two to the fitting room with a smile.
Zhou Yun Sheng put away the tablet and asked, “Are you really going to take me to the banquet? Let me warn you first, I don’t know anything and I might embarrass you.”
What did Xue Zi Xuan want to do? Zhou Yun Sheng was already too lazy to look into it. He’ll just let nature take its course.
“It doesn’t matter, you can do whatever you like. I don’t feel embarrassed.”
Xue Zi Xuan had already made inquiries and he knew that Xue Yan was not in China at the moment, so he had the courage to take the boy out. But he didn’t like this kind of state very much. He wanted to openly possess the teenager, instead of being sneaky and hiding like this, as if he had stolen someone’s treasure.
