“Then I’ll take my leave first.” She smiled as she looked at the two of them.
Xiangyi nodded at her. “Alright.”
Then, he carried Nuannuan to Room 609.
An Zhihan stood in the elevator as she looked at the two of them. She had never felt so disappointed before.
When they reached Room 609, Shi Nuannuan took out her room card and swiped it on the lock. Then, the door opened.
He carried her into the luxurious suite.
He placed her on the sofa and found a pair of slippers for her.
“Do you still have shoes?” If not, he planned to go down and buy a pair for her, regardless whether or not a shoe store was opened at this time.
He couldn’t look for a pair earlier because he had her in his arms.
Shi Nuannuan nodded. “Yes, I have them!”
She looked at Xiangyi and suddenly felt a little curious. “Who was that woman just now?”
She was just curious. She was curious about all the women who were talking to Xiangyi.
Xiangyi raised his eyebrows. “You mean Miss An?”
“Yes.” She nodded a few times.
“This hotel belongs to her family.”
Shi Nuannuan was stunned for a moment before asking, “Then how did you meet her?”
Xiangyi was silent for a few moments as he stared at her delicate face.
“We stayed together in the Welfare Institute.”
Shi Nuannuan was stunned again.
Welfare Institute? Was that the orphanage? Xiangyi stayed in that orphanage?
But didn’t he stay at his uncle’s house? When did he stay at the Welfare Institute again.
He nodded as he stood opposite her. She sat on the sofa and looked up at him with a slightly surprised look in her eyes.
Although she did not know much about Xiangyi’s family background, she had always thought that his parents had passed away and he was living with his uncle. She did not expect that he once stayed at the Welfare Institute.
She was suddenly curious about his family background. “Xiangyi, can you tell me about your family? I don’t know anything about you!”
Although they had known each other for many years, she knew nothing about Xiangyi.
That was because she had only met him 6 years ago, and even then, she had only recently gotten to know him properly. Before that, she had been living in C Country, away from her brother as he eventually found a capable assistant like Xiangyi.
Her casual words made Xiangyi’s face darken.
“There was an accident. My mother died. Later, I was taken in by the Welfare Institute. Miss An was brought in as well. After that, my uncle found me and brought me back. She was also adopted by someone, the big boss of this hotel.”
He summarized it simply. But it was enough for people to get the gist of his family background. His mother died and he had no home. He was taken in by the orphanage and then brought home by his uncle.
Then, what about his father?
Shi Nuannuan was a little too oblivious as she asked, “Then what about your father?”
Xiangyi’s face sank again. His expression turned cold instantly and Nuannuan’s smile faded.
What was going on? Did she ask the wrong question?
His mother had died, which meant that his father had also died. She did not realize it at all and only kept on adding salt to his wound.
Realizing her mistake, she quickly apologized, “I’m sorry, Xiangyi, I…”
“It’s okay.” He rejected her apology—there was no need to apologize at all.
Eighteen years had passed, and he was already used to it.
He raised his hand and looked at his watch. It was 5:40 pm—it was still very early.
However, it was the new year, and there did not seem to be any places to go on the streets.
Although he rejected her apology, Shi Nuannuan still felt that his expression had changed. It was different from before.
