An Chuxia’s confession made her heart sink to the bottom of her stomach. She was in such a good mood, she decided to stay up late to write letters to her readers.
“Ayi, are you okay?” An Chuxia asks after Jiang Yuan looks lost in expression.
She snaps from her melancholia and smiles. “I’m fine. An Chuxia, why don’t you go to sleep? Tomorrow’s Friday and you still have class.”
An Chuxia realizes it’s late and she has to sleep. She greets Jiang Yuan goodnight and leaves the studio. She passes Han Qilu’s room and sees his light is still on, but she ignores it and heads back to her room.
It’s probably because
she is so tired today she looks forward to sleep.
The night passes without her having dreams. She wakes up with thirty minutes left before her alarm clock rings. Her original thought is to lay in bed for a while. But when sleep won’t take her, she decides to wash her face and get dressed for school. She takes her stack of books and papers and heads downstairs.
“The lady is awake! The Master and the Lady aren’t up yet,” Steward Han says from behind the door. She runs toward him until she sees the huge Tibetan mastiff being fed.
She didn’t dare come too close to the dog. She stands in front of the hall looking at them.
“Butler, isn’t he called Batian?” Indeed, the
the dog is domineering. In fact, you don’t have to take a good look at it to know he has domineering friends. Even his name is domineering. He is really suitable as the Han’s pet.
Steward Han wills a large bag of food into the dog’s food plate. He smiles at Chuxia. “Yes, and he is four years old. He was bought for the young master when he was still a puppy. We didn’t expect him to get this big so soon.”
An Chuxia’s smile is fake. It isn’t a miracle the dog is big. It eats special dog food and it drinks top of the line dog milk.
“Miss Xia, you don’t have to worry about him. Batian likes you.” Steward Han looks at the
at the dog. “He is very spiritual. He is kind to good people and fierce to bad.”
Despite his reassurance, she still doesn’t like dogs.
She once read a book called “A Dog’s Will”. She was touched by the book and was determined to like dogs once that time came. However, at first glance of this dog, she retreats. No matter how she tries to bring herself to like dogs, she can’t will it.
“Miss, breakfast is prepared,” Mother Chen gently says. This Han server seems to like her. She probably is very selfless and gentle, right?
As she gets to the table, Han Liuhai comes down the stairwell. After seeing a helpless An Chuxia, he says, “I don’t know what got your aunt so worked up last worked up last night but she has been holding the pillow. She’s depressed and she told me to go and eat breakfast without her.”
She knows why she’s depressed but how can she tell that to her benefactor? Embarrassed, she smiles as she eats her breakfast.
When she was done, she heads out to the stone walkway to enjoy the clear weather. Han Qilu descends to eat breakfast.
Batian suddenly sees her and gets excited. He’s better than the last time. He walks to Chuxia’s side and gently rubs against her feet. Suppressing a scream, she calls out for Steward Han. “Butler, please come! Come!”
Steward Han takes the dog back to its kennel. Han Qilu finishes breakfast and rides along with Chuxia in the car.
