Uncle Li was stunned. “Didn’t you ask Second Young Master to give her a ride?”
Ask Xue Gui to give her a ride?
Xue Sheng’s face darkened. Why did Xue Gui send Xue Xi to school?
He suddenly recalled Liu Yiqiu’s words to the Xue family members last night. He then recalled Xue Gui’s character… He suddenly realized something and turned around to enter the living room.
Xue Xi was carrying her bag and sizing up this small villa.
There were only two servants at home. Other than the chauffeur, there was also Xiao Fang, who had followed them from the Xue family and was currently cooking in the kitchen. Each floor was about 100 square meters. On the first floor was the living room, dining room, and servant’s room.
Their bedroom was on the second floor, and Xue Xi’s room was on the sun’s side. There was an independent washroom, and she even had a ten-square-meter-long walk-in closet. It was bigger than the one in the Xue family, and the renovation was more exquisite and warm.
The bedsheets’ color really suited a teenage girl, and the curtains were pinkish-purple. What satisfied her the most was the huge white desk. It almost occupied the entire wall, and all her revision materials had been placed on it. Ye Li could not help but sigh when she saw her sparkling eyes.
Other daughters liked beautiful clothes, but why did her daughter like to study so much?
She shook her head and said, “Xixi, I personally tidied up your room. I arranged the books and doc.u.ments according to how you ordered them in the old house. Do you see anything wrong?”
Ye Li was very meticulous and there was no problem.
Ye Li smiled again. “I’ll pick you up after school tomorrow. We’ll go buy some clothes and make your walk-in closet a little less s.p.a.cious.”
Before, whenever Xue Xi returned to the Xue family home, Ye Li was always busy managing the household ch.o.r.es and was being supervised by Old Lady Xue. She only found the time to prepare a few sets of clothes for her. Every time she saw Xue Yao’s fully-filled wardrobe, she could not help but think that when she moved, she would definitely fill up Xixi’s walk-in closet too!
Xue Xi wanted to reject the plan, thinking it would take up too much time. However, Ye Li acted as though she already knew what she was thinking and pouted. “You’re not allowed to reject me! Moreover, didn’t you receive a scholarship? Shouldn’t you give your cla.s.smates a present? I’ll take you shopping tomorrow.”
Xue Xi paused when she heard this.
She did not know much about the ways of the world, but since Ye Li had said as much, she nodded reluctantly.
At this moment, Xue Sheng rushed in. He looked fl.u.s.tered as he sized up Xue Xi. Seeing that she was fine, he asked, “Xixi, where did your uncle take you this morning?”
Xue Xi was the kind of person who would not speak if others did not initiate a topic.
Moreover, she grew up in the orphanage and her friends were often taken away one by one. She did not have any friends and was very lonely. She liked to settle matters on her own and would not seek help from others.
However, when Xue Sheng mentioned it, she replied, “To eat with Lu Chao.”
Xue Sheng’s face instantly turned as dark as water. He was so angry that his body was trembling. He asked nervously, “Are… are you alright?”
Xue Xi shook her head. “I’m fine.”
Hearing that she was fine, Xue Sheng heaved a sigh of relief. He angrily turned around and headed downstairs without even putting on his jacket.
Ye Li was also infuriated. She asked, “Where are you going?”
Xue Sheng did not reply and only said, “You guys have dinner. You don’t have to wait for me.”
When he left, Ye Li tugged at Xue Xi. After confirming that she was not hurt and that she was not taken advantage of, she felt relieved. After dinner, Ye Li’s eyes turned red. She did not blame Xue Xi for not telling them immediately when something happened to her, but she blamed herself and was overcome with guilt and sadness.

She picked up Xue Xi’s favorite braised pork. “Xixi, if you encounter any trouble in the future, remember to tell me and your father immediately, alright?”
Xue Xi paused. She had forgotten about Xiang Huai.
Seeing her expression, Ye Li understood what was going on. The corners of her lips twitched as she suddenly felt that the pretty boy who earned 300 yuan as a gigolo was a little pitiful.
Ye Li helped her look around and shop in the mall.
The two entered a shoe store and Ye Li pa.s.sed Xue Xi a pair of Gucci bees. “Xixi, I heard that young people nowadays like these. Try them on.”
Xue Xi took them and looked at the price at the bottom of the shoes: 9660.
She stared blankly and exclaimed, “So expensive!”
Just as Ye Li was about to smile, a voice sounded. “Wrap this pair of shoes for me.”
Following this familiar voice, the two of them turned around and saw Liu Yiqiu walking in with a few shopping bags. She smiled and said, “Yaoyao has a few pairs of shoes with similar designs, but this is a new one. She will definitely like it.”
After saying this, she turned to look at Xue Xi and said, “Xixi, don’t be jealous. The money I used to buy Yaoyao’s shoes is all my own dowry. Your mother doesn’t have any dowry, so it’s best that you guys don’t pursue high-quality items. After all, we’re already separated so you guys would need to save some money to spend, right?”
Ye Li frowned. “You…”
Before she could finish speaking, Liu Yiqiu interrupted her. “Auntie should have given you a pair of shoes, but my dowry and the family’s cash have been invested. Xixi, why don’t you wait for my interest to arrive and I’ll give you a pair of shoes?”
Ye Li interrupted, “We can still afford a pair of shoes.”
Liu Yiqiu said eccentrically, “Sister-in-law, even a pair of shoes is a point of conflict for you. Do you regret not investing with us? At least save some private money! And by the way, Big Brother suddenly came to our house last night. He went crazy and beat Xue Gui up. Xue Gui said that his biological brother is so heavy-handed, so even if you’re thinking about making this investment now, he won’t extend his help anymore!”
At this moment, the finance channel in the store suddenly reported a piece of news. “Recently, a conglomerate has appeared in Bin City. Currently, the fraud amount has reached 160 million! I would like to ask the reporters at the scene to give a detailed report…”
