C9 Devil's Cave

It was getting late, and some shops on the street were already lit up, so the pedestrians were all rushing home.

Only Xu Ran was aimlessly walking up and down the street. She was staggering as if she was drunk, but in reality, because of the pain in her legs, every step she took caused her every cell in her body to cry out in pain.

She gritted her teeth and continued down the street.

When he woke up this morning, Wen Yu was already sitting outside, fully dressed. The first thing she said when she saw him was, "Hurry up and leave."

What a cold-blooded man, he practically forgot who was the one that put in the effort to cooperate with him on the bed yesterday.

Xu Ran naturally didn't dare to stay any longer. Although her body was exhausted, she didn't dare to complain to Wen Yuqing.

She was the one who came looking for him. She was the one who was despicable. Who could she complain to?

So she obediently left without even saying goodbye. After leaving Wen Yuqing's residence, she didn't immediately return to the Wen family. That place, if possible, she really didn't want to go back for the rest of her life.

Thus, from morning until night, she dragged her feeble body and wandered around all day, not knowing where she could go other than to the Wen Family.

Go to Yin Ze?

He had heard that the president of the Gu family, Gu Weibo, had recently gone to England and handed over the Gu family to Yin Ze. He must be very busy. Xu Ran had always been good at thinking for others.

He didn't want to trouble Yin Ze, didn't want to go back to the Wen family, and didn't dare to find Wen Yuqing.

Apart from these, there was no other place she could go in the entirety of C City.

In the end, she could only return to the Wen family's villa. When she stood in front of the brightly lit villa's door, her expression was sluggish, as if the one in front of her was not her home for many years, but a devil's nest.

However, the most terrifying thing was that even though she knew this was a devil's nest, she still had to step into it again and again.

After entering, the nanny was the first to see her and quickly called out to Xu Ye, "Madam, Miss Xu has returned."

Xu Ran smiled bitterly. Yesterday was the first time in so many years that she hadn't returned home. Who knew how her aunt would teach her a lesson?

She stood like a puppet in the living room, her head bowed, waiting for her aunt to come down.

Soon, she heard footsteps coming down the stairs, but they were not alone. Her heart skipped a beat, and she slowly clenched her hands.

Xu Ye held Wen Yin's hand as he walked down the stairs. When he saw Xu Ran standing in the living room, he looked impatient.

This wild girl knew to come back?

How shameless. The moment Wen Yuqing moved out, she became impatient for him to stay at night. She acted pure and kind, but who knew what despicable things she did outside?

However, because Wen Yin was present, Xu Ye would never openly show her bad attitude towards Xu Ran. She could also tell that Wen Yin had quite a good impression of her, her silly niece.

Otherwise, without Wen Yin's secret permission, she wouldn't have brazenly forced Wen Yuqing and Xu Ran to be together.

Therefore, in front of Wen Yin, she was always happy to play the role of a kind aunt.

"An Ran, where did you go yesterday? "Did you know that you scared your aunt to death? I thought you had left because of Yuqing, so why the hell would you do that?" She had an anxious expression on her face as she grabbed onto Xu Ran's hands. She exerted a lot of strength, causing Xu Ran's hands to turn red from holding hers.

"Aunt, I'm fine. Yesterday, a friend of mine urgently needed my help, so I didn't have the time to tell you all that I'm sorry." In one breath, she explained what she had wanted to do all along.

Of course, Xu Ye did not believe her, but since she said so in front of Wen Yin, it would not be easy for her to expose him. After all, they were still on the same side.

"It's good that you're fine. Your aunt is really afraid that something will happen to you. I don't know how to explain this to your father!"

She acted as if Xu Ran was her own daughter. Even the tears in her eyes were perfect.

Perhaps it was to make herself look more concerned about her, Xu Ye even took the initiative to ask to go to the kitchen to cook noodles for her.

Only Wen Yin and Xu Ran were left in the living room. She didn't dare to say a single word as she sat in the corner of the sofa with her head lowered. Even her breathing had started to become smaller.

However, what should come will eventually come. Wen Yin took the initiative to ask, "Have you considered what I've said yet?"
