ABBR - Chapter 99-Pt.1

Father Xu was furious. Pointing at the door, he repeated, "Get out!"

However, Mother Xu yelled at Father Xu, saying, "Chuanchuan bought this house! What right do you have to chase her out?!"

Father Xu choked a little. Then, with reddened eyes, he raised his hand at Xu Chuanchuan.

Fortunately, Mother Xu caught her husband's hand in time.

With the situation going out of control, Xu Chuanchuan dragged Murong Shi out of the house with tears rolling down her eyes.

As for Xu Xiangxiang, she hurriedly helped her mother hold back her father. When she saw Xu Chuanchuan turning around to leave, she hastily asked, "Sis, where are you going?"

"Chuanchuan?" Murong Shi looked at Xu Chuanchuan with worry in her eyes.

In response, Xu Chuanchuan sniffled and said, "He might...really hit me."

Murong Shi's expression changed when she heard this.

While Murong Shi was in a daze, Xu Chuanchuan opened the door and dragged Murong Shi out of the house while saying, "Let's find a hotel to hide in first."

...

It was windy and desolate outside the apartment, and Xu Chuanchuan couldn't help but sneeze when a cold wind blew by.

Murong Shi had parked her car under a tree with a crooked neck. After unlocking the car, she hurriedly stuffed Xu Chuanchuan into the passenger seat.

After making sure that she was isolated, Xu Chuanchuan began bawling her eyes out.

This was the first time Murong Shi had seen Xu Chuanchuan crying so sadly, and she felt her heart wincing in pain at this sight. Immediately, she tightly embraced Xu Chuanchuan in her arms and gently kissed her on the cheek.

Murong Shi knew that no words of consolation would be of any use right now, so she gently patted Xu Chuanchuan's back and said, "Don't cry."

Xu Chuanchuan wrapped her arms around Murong Shi's neck and continued crying. However, when she smelled Murong Shi's familiar scent, she gradually calmed down and stopped crying.

"I already guessed something like this would happen, but I never thought that..." Xu Chuanchuan hiccuped. Then, she continued, "He's never scolded me like this before. Yet, he wanted to hit me just now."

Seeing her lover's tearful face, Murong Shi pulled out a piece of tissue paper and gently wiped away Xu Chuanchuan's tears. Then, she said, "When people are angry, they are more prone to speaking excessively without thinking. The more concerned they are of someone, the heavier their words would be."

Hearing Murong Shi's words, Xu Chuanchuan looked up and stared at her lover with a dazed expression.

After giving Xu Chuanchuan's swollen eyes a lick and savoring the salty taste, Murong Shi said, "When my dad found out that Jiang Shaohua and I lied to him about our relationship, he got furious as well and said a bunch of nasty things to me."

"Did he threaten to hit you?"

Murong Shi shook her head. Then, she calmly said, "He just hit me without any warning."

"He hit you?!" Xu Chuanchuan exclaimed.

"Mhm. I also ran away just like you," Murong Shi said, chuckling. Then, she gently caressed Xu Chuanchuan's frizzy hair and continued, "Actually, I should thank him."

"He hit you, and you still want to thank him?" Xu Chuanchuan was confused.

Straightening her body, Murong Shi looked at Xu Chuanchuan with tender eyes and said, "I was in a bad mood at the time, so I ran to the company to occupy my attention with work. Who knew that you would be walking and jumping upstairs? You ended up disturbing my work."

Xu Chuanchuan opened her mouth slightly, her memories of that time instantly flooding her mind.

Xu Chuanchuan's memory of that night was still fresh in her mind. After all, she had lost the first kiss she had saved for 25 years on that night…

Xu Chuanchuan had only moved into the dormitory recently at the time. And because she had been sitting for too long, her back had started hurting. So, she decided to walk and hop about to loosen her muscles. However, she never expected Murong Shi to be working downstairs. She also didn't expect the other party had even called her to give her a warning.

Afterward, Murong Shi had come upstairs to ask for some food. Xu Chuanchuan had found the situation strange at the time since she could clearly see that Murong Shi wasn't in her normal state. However, she didn't think that it was because Sun An had just hit Murong Shi.

Then, they started drinking, and the rest was history…

Xu Chuanchuan blushed a little when she recalled what had happened that night. Then, rubbing her face, she said, "You were very shameless that night."

"How would I have caught you if I wasn't shameless?" Murong Shi said as she hooked up Xu Chuanchuan's chin with a finger. Then, she continued, "Come, give me a smile."

"I can't bring myself to smile," Xu Chuanchuan said with a bitter face. Then, she looked in the direction of her house.

Murong Shi knew what her lover was worried about, so she let out a soft sigh and said, "Judging by your mother's reaction, I think it's safe to say that she's on our side. As for your father, he's currently blinded by anger, so he probably won't be listening to anyone's words. It'd be better if we let him cool his head first."

Xu Chuanchuan felt that Murong Shi's words sounded reasonable. Then, she frowned and asked, "Do you think I was too hasty?"

"Then, do you regret it?" Murong Shi responded with a question.

Xu Chuanchuan shook her head without even taking the time to process the question. Then, she said, "I know today is a bad time since it's Grandpa's birthday, but it's not often you visit my family's home. We also have to confess sooner or later, so we might as well do it sooner. For now, I plan to let them slowly digest this matter and bring you over again during the New Year. Hopefully, everything will be fine at that time."

Murong Shi was a little surprised to hear Xu Chuanchuan's words. Smiling, she said, "It seems you've thought things through better than I did."

At this time, the ringing of a phone interrupted their conversation. Looking at her ringing phone, Xu Chuanchuan found that her mother was calling her, so she quickly answered the call.

Then, Mother Xu's anxious voice came through the phone, asking, "Where do you two plan to go this late at night?"

After glancing at Murong Shi, Xu Chuanchuan said, "Mom, Murong and I will stay in a hotel tonight.'

"Why stay in a hotel when you have a house?! Come back quickly!"

"Is Dad not mad anymore?" Xu Chuanchuan hesitantly asked.

Mother Xu paused for a moment before saying, "Just ignore him. What can he do to you with me around?"

When Xu Chuanchuan recalled her father's furious look before, she couldn't help but feel scared. So, she said, "Nevermind. He'll probably explode again if he sees me. We'll hide from him for the time being."

Then, Mother Xu said in a frustrated tone, "You know your father has always been stubborn. He's even a little drunk tonight, so don't take his words to heart."

Unfortunately, Xu Chuanchuan had already taken her father's words to heart, and she was incredibly saddened to hear them. Even so, she wouldn't go argue with her father. Then, she said in a somber tone, "I know, Mom."

During the call, Murong Shi had already started the car. Then, with Xu Chuanchuan pointing the way, the two moved into Xian City's most luxurious hotel.
