You Are My Rare Passion - Chapter 6

Just when Ye Xingli walked to the entrance, his mobile phone rang.
Taking out his phone, Ye Xingbei glanced at it and became overjoyed as he took the call, “Bei Bei? Are you all right?”
“I’m still fine,” Ye Xingbei said. “I’m downstairs in the Star Sect building but I’ve been stopped by the front desk. Give the front desk a call to let me go up.”
“Stand there, don’t move.” Ye Xingli spoke hurriedly, “I’m coming down to fetch you!”
Very quickly, Ye Xingli rode in his private elevator to reach the lobby.
When the elevator had just opened, he quickly spotted Ye Xingbei standing next to the front desk with a glance.
In the North, there is a beautiful girl;
In all the world, she shall stand alone.
As the devastatingly beautiful Ye Xingbei stood there, she was like a dazzling strip of aurora light—so beautiful that she stunned people’s eyes.
“Bei Bei!” Taking two steps to replace three steps, Ye Xingli dashed over and grabbed onto Ye Xingbei’s arm, sizing her up and down, “How was it? Are you hurt somewhere? Your scumbag dad and stepmother didn’t bully you, did they?”
Ye Xingbei shrugged off his hand and shook her head, “No.”
Her scumbag dad and stepmother did not bully her indeed, just that overnight, some changes happened awfully fast. Without rhyme or reason, she—a young, innocent maiden—had become some “Young Madam of the Gu family”.
The most infuriating thing was that not only was her status already set in stone, her innocence had also vanished overnight.
Remembering that piercing crimson spot on the bed sheets, she grew so angry that it felt as if her internal organs were twisting together painfully.
Seeing that Ye Xingbei’s complexion didn’t look that good, Ye Xingli gnashed his teeth furiously, “Those scumbags from the Jiang family must have bullied you! Bei Bei, don’t endure it. Let’s go, Second Brother will help you vent your anger!”
Clutching Ye Xingbei’s hand, he turned around and walked away to find the members of the Jiang family in order to settle this score.
Ye Xingbei dragged him to a halt. “Forget it. We’ll talk about it later. There are urgent official duties.”
Ye Xingbei had returned to Jiang city this time, not only for personal matters but also for official business.
Last month, the director of Jiang City Branch’s Star Sect Company had resigned and they had not found a suitable candidate yet.
Having decided that she’d return to Jiang City, she asked the chairman of the Star Sect International—Ye Xinglan—for this position.
Being the genius songwriter known as “Music Sprite”,
And as the largest money-maker of Star Sect, becoming the director of the company’s Jiang City branch wasn’t inappropriate at all.
Last week’s internal email had already announced her appointment at the company today and she was meeting with the different heads of departments—she could not skip work on the first day.
“Sure,” Ye Xingli nodded and grasped her shoulder. “In that case, I’ll accompany you around. Next time, I’ll assist you in looking at the place you’ve arranged to stay at.”
He could not wait for Ye Xingbei to take over the work quickly so that he could enjoy his life as a figurehead leader.
He walked outwards with Ye Xingbei as she tilted her head to look at him, asking, “Second Brother, where’s Xiao Shu?”
Xiao Shu—officially named Ye Yiyang—was that child whom had been forcefully stuffed into her embrace by Bai Mengluan that year and caused her to be chased out of the Jiang family.
Five years ago, a baby who was only a few months old was forced into her embrace by Bai Mengluan.
Bai Mengluan leaped into a car and took off. Ye Xingbei did not give chase.
Carrying that child, she searched for Bai Mengluan for two days but the latter seemed to have disappeared from the face of the earth.
Afterwards, because of that child, the Jiang family smeared her reputation—saying that she led a chaotic private life, had illicit sexual relations with random men and gave birth to a b*stard—cursing her for ruining the Jiang family’s principles and reputation before chasing her out of the place.
She had thought of sending that child to an orphanage but for reasons she couldn’t understand, Ye Xingbei could not bear to do it. Undoubtedly, she had already carried the child to the orphanage entrance when she carried him back again.
Afterwards, in a stroke of luck, she was saved by her Eldest Brother Ye Xinglan.
Ye Xinglan brought her and that child overseas and took great care of them.
When she was in the Jiang family, she was called Jiang Sibei.
After being saved by Ye Xinglan, he changed her name to Ye Xingbei.
She gave the child the name Ye Yiyang—pet name Xiao Shu—and settled the adoption procedures.
Five years ago, she was 16 years old.
A young, 16-year-old girl became the mother of a tiny new-born. One could only imagine the hardships and helplessness she experienced.
Fortunately, she had her Eldest Brother and Second Brother to help; it was less difficult.
Xiao Shu wasn’t alike other children; he had been particularly mature since young and exceptionally intelligent.
On a whim, Second Brother had brought Xiao Shu to test his intelligence quotient(IQ) before and the specialist said that Xiao Shu was a rare child genius. In fact, the specialist stared at Xiao Shu with sparkling eyes as though he had the urge to force him to stay behind for research purposes.
When Second Brother brought Xiao Shu back from the research institute, he was still chattering excitedly. He kept nagging her to watch over Xiao Shu properly and be careful not to let the research institute kidnap him as their guinea pig.
Ye Xingbei’s expression at that time was like this, “…”
Her family’s Second Brother was impressive indeed. His largest and most prominent feature was… “Number two”.
Hearing Ye Xingbei mention Xiao Shu, the smile on Ye Xingli’s face grew more dazzling. “I found an elementary school for Xiao Shu Miao and sent him there. He’s in third grade too!”
Immensely proud of himself, Ye Xingli extended three fingers and a stunning smile plastered on his extremely handsome face—so bright that it could blind others.
“…” Ye Xingbei felt helpless. “Second Brother, Xiao Shu is only five years old. You’re being too eager!”
“What we want is this kind of result—to let others be taken aback!” Ye Xingli said. “If I wasn’t afraid that you would be unhappy, I would’ve directly sent Xiao Shu to the sixth grade. The courses in the third grade are too easy for our family’s Xiao Shumiao, especially English!”
Ye Xingbei, “…”
That was true.
Since young, Xiao Shu had lived abroad with her. He spoke English outside and Mandarin at home. From the day he could speak, he had undergone bilingual education.
Ye Xingli said proudly, “Bei Bei, you didn’t see how those teachers and principal looked at our Xiao Shumiao—all of their eyes were sparkling like they had seen a rare treasure.”
Ye Xingbei shook her head.
Xiao Shu was also one of the reasons she had returned to Jiang City.
Her foolish second brother had taken advantage of her business trip to ‘abduct’ Xiao Shu to Jiang city.
She simply could not feel reassured to allow her second brother—an empty-headed fool—to look after her child so she had to chase them all the way here.
How had she known that upon reaching Jiang city, the Jiang family would send her a “generous gift”.
Recalling her lost innocence, she felt upset again.
