COLD CEO AND ARROGANT WIFE, VOLUME 5 - Season 9 Episode 75
“Stop disturbing me, Kun!”
Cui Xukun pouted, “Then pay some attention to me.”
“Kun, go and help your brother-in-law in the kitchen,” said Cui Xuqing as she looked up from the laptop.
“I have something to discuss with you,” said Cui Xukun.
“I’m busy,” replied Cui Xuqing.
“When are you not busy?” retorted Cui Xukun. “I’m a corporate lawyer. Even I’m not as busy as you are. How can being a celebrity lawyer be so difficult? It’s not like you’re a divorce lawyer or a criminal lawyer.”
Cui Xuqing glared at her brother, “Are you looking down on celebrities? Because I’m telling you, sometimes they create more trouble than the divorce couples.” She stretched her arms and added, “My client wants to break his contract with his agency and join a new company. But his old company isn’t that easy to deal with and wants him to shed some skin before leaving. I’ve to plan for the worst here. I can’t let my client lose.”
Cui Xukun made a face at her to show his dissatisfaction.
“If you continued to shoo me away with the same excuse, your brother is gonna die alone. It seems you don’t want to meet my girlfriend at all,” he harrumphed and walked away angrily.
Cui Xuqing was frowning but she heard what he said, she had a look of enlightenment. No wonder her brother had been running after her to give him some time. But she really had no free time lately. She looked at the documents scattered on the table and felt her headache getting worse. She had to deal with this all as soon as possible.
No matter what, she was still Cui Xukun’s elder sister. It was her responsibility to take care of her brother’s matters like she had been doing all her life. And she was also eager to meet Cloe in person. The woman had her brother infatuated with her for years, she had to know her.
Cui Xukun was still grumbling unhappily when he went to look for his brother-in-law and ran into someone. “Sorry!”
Cui Xukun had to lower his head to see Sora’s face and he smiled at her, “Hi! Haven’t seen you for a long time. How are you, Sora?” Before she could answer, he added, “You’re still so small. Eat more.”
Sora’s cheeks puffed up, “Brother Kun! Why do you have to jab at me with my height?”
“What are you talking about?” asked Cui Xukun in bafflement. “I didn’t mean your height. Eat more won’t help with that at this point. I’m talking about how skinny you have become. Are you starving? Who are you saving money for? Eat more.”
“How am I skinny? I still have to lose 3 pounds,” she told him.
“Then you’ll look like a mummy,” said Cui Xukun making her gape at him. “Be careful. I don’t care but I don’t want you to scare my niece and nephew. They are precious to me.”
Sora stomped her foot like a kid and shouted at the top of her lungs, “Bro! Brother Kun is bullying me!”
Cui Xukun took a step back from her and rubbed his ears, “Is this considered bullying? Which school did you go to? You should have come to mine and I’d have shown you what real bullying looked like. Besides, it’s you who just bullied me.”
“Yeah! You ran into me and almost broke my chest with that iron-like head of yours and then you shouted so loud that it’s a blessing my ears didn’t start bleeding yet.”
Sora just stood there not knowing what to say. She was hopping mad but had no comeback. What a stifling feeling! She felt like some bad blood was stuck in her chest that made her uncomfortable now!
Seeing how she was turning red from her neck down, he found it very interesting and said, “Aren’t you a famous writer? Why aren’t you even creative with comebacks? Tsk. So much for your hype.”
He walked past her without waiting for a response because he knew right about this time, that she was gonna cry if he stayed there. After all, he knew this much. His sister married Sora’s brother for years. There was no way he wouldn’t know what she was like.
And he wasn’t wrong, when he left Sora did have tears brimming in her eyes. She was trying so hard to hold them back. What a disappointment she was! She always acted like an aloof writer out there and in the house, she was being bullied and couldn’t even stand up for herself. She slapped her head that couldn’t think of anything at the right time.
“Auntie, are you okay?” asked little Xena as she looked at her aunt who just stood there with her head lowered. She only heard voices and came running down from upstairs. She didn’t find anyone else apart from her aunt standing there like she was scolded by someone.
Why did she think so? Because little Xena thought she also looked exactly the same when her mommy lectured her. Oh, it wasn’t a good feeling. So, she stepped over, and using her small hands, tugged at Sora’s trousers.
Sora sniffled and looked down at her niece. She crouched down before her and said, “I’m fine.”
Of course, little Xena didn’t think so. So, she raised her hand to caress Sora’s hair saying, “There, there. Don’t feel so down. Everything will be okay. We are here with you.”
Sora didn’t know whether to cry or laugh at this moment. What the… She was actually being comforted by her own niece who barely even reached her waist. Ah, she should really stop doing this or she’ll lose whatever prestige she had in front of her niece and nephew.
“Okay, I’ll listen to Xena,” said Sora. “Come with auntie. Let’s go and find your brother. I found the crayons. We can start drawing now.”
“Okay,” Little Xena readily agreed and gave a toothy grin to her aunt, melting her heart into a puddle. She was really envious of her brother who had such adorable kids.
