An Chuxia shakes her head. “I am not trying to be a show-off. I’m just thinking of my future. Ling Hanyu, thank you for giving me this opportunity. I definitely can do this. Thank You! As for wages, whatever you give your maids is fine, despite not having any relation to them.”
He touches his chin. The wages…. This is a good time to check how much a maid makes. He doesn’t remember when he had a “last maid”!
“So it’s decided.” Ling Hanyu eyes An Chuxia. “Every weekend, you’ll come to my house. I’ll
have the driver pick you up.”
“Do not! Don’t!” An Chuxia hurriedly tells Ling Hanyu. She pulls on his collar and whispers in his ear. Then, she remembers Xiao Mingluo so she pulls him in, too. “We need to keep this a secret amongst the three of us!”
“Don’t tell me… Aunt Han doesn’t know about this. So does Han Qilu!” Xiao Mingluo sees An Chuxia nod. His expression darkens. “You better not hide this from Qilu. Once he finds out, the three of us would be dead.”
Despite Xiao Mingluo’s warning, Ling Hanyu appears to be unaffected. “Han Qilu says ruthless things,
things, but he never really does anything to us. And as long as you don’t say anything, I won’t say anything… .”
Xiao Mingluo’s brow relaxes gradually. His mouth breaks into a smile. “Hanyu, I know your family lacks a diligent maid, but it’s not right to be so impatient.”
“What kind of nonsense are you talking about?” Ling Hanyu frowns at a distance. He turns his back, not knowing what to do.
An Chuxia isn’t paying attention to Xiao Mingluo’s innuendo. However, she’s pondering on whether she must look for part-time work where Han Qilu won’t find her. As Mingluo said, if someone
if someone outside the three of them finds out, the consequences would be absolutely miserable.
With Xiao Mingluo bringing her back to her sensibilities, her mind recalls the chief’s words asking about Xiang Mankuai being pregnant and not knowing what happened to the child she carried.
Child…. Is it Han Qilu’s? Flustered, she doesn’t know what to think. Clenching her teeth, she says out loud, “It’s decided. If anyone dares leak about this matter, I will end them!”
They all turn to each other and stretch out their hands and swear, “I will not say anything!” She has a plan!~
Xiao Mingluo watches their line of sight. He of sight. He shrugs. “I don’t care what you do. If you get found out, don’t drag me in the mud. I don’t know anything, I didn’t hear anything.”
“This is good. So, every weekend, I’ll pick you up. How about I’ll say you’re tutoring me?” Ling Hanyu raises an eyebrow, ignoring Xiao Mingluo’s scalding look. He knows Mingluo is crookedly in love with her. He isn’t inclined to explain how he knows about it.
“Thank you!” An Chuxia suddenly bows to him sincerely. “I have to work because there are some difficulties I have to face. Thank you for helping me.”
