Ge Xuan’s friends did not say anything during the situation earlier. It was, after all, someone else’s family affairs. However, now that they saw Ge Xuan bolting off, they ran after him immediately.
“T-the boy’s finally back. Don’t do that to him even if he did say some hurtful words. He’s still young. Some things can be communicated slowly,” Qin Yirou stood up hesitantly to tell Ge Junjian with both her hands entwined together tightly.
Qin Yirou was an extremely kind soul. Even when Ge Xuan called her a vamp just now, she was not angered. It was not that she was a pushover, she just understood how devastating it was to children when their parents divorced.
The reason she was reluctant to divorce Yun Gang back then was because she was scared that Yun Jian and Yun Yi could not accept it.
If one asked why Qin Yirou empathized with such a rebellious mentality, it was because Dong Ruan’s parents had divorced a long time ago. Dong Ruan frequently complained to her about it back then.
When Dong Ruan’s parents went through the divorce, it caused a huge blow to Dong Ruan and Si Yi’s mother. Dong Ruan, especially, had studied so hard when she was younger because she knew she had to be strong for herself!
Nonetheless, Qin Yirou knew that the divorce of Dong Ruan’s parents felt exactly like the world had collapsed to her best friend. It was even more evident when her parents built another family of their own respectively; Dong Ruan became an outsider instead.
Although Dong Ruan’s parents were rich and she had never lacked in terms of money provision, missing out on familial love felt like she had lost everything in life to Dong Ruan.
Qin Yirou had not wanted Yun Jian and Yun Yi to become children like that. Hence, she delayed divorcing Yun Gang. When she later realized that Yun Jian and Yun Yi had never thought about it that way, in addition to Yun Gang’s extramarital affair, she picked up her courage and divorced him directly.
“I’ll go check on him.” Brimming with motherly love and being a kindhearted person as always, Qin Yirou got up to give chase when Ge Xuan dashed out.
“No need... Hey!” Ge Junjian palmed his forehead wearing an anguished expression.
It was not like Ge Junjian had never thought about Ge Xuan hating him but what could he do? What could he have done?
Seeing that Qin Yirou had run out and worrying that Ge Xuan would bully her, Yun Jian stood up as well and informed the group before following her. “I’ll go have a look too.”
She left the dinner table to go out of the door. Yun Jian knew that the situation made it awkward for Ge Junjian to go out, especially when Ge Xuan was blowing his top right now. However, she was also worried about Qin Yirou getting bullied since she went after Ge Xuan alone.
Just as Yun Jian got up, Si Yi stood up as well, going after her through the door without saying anything.
On the other side, Ge Xuan sprinted right out of the door with a snap of the head.
A light rain had somehow begun drizzling outside but the young man ran into it anyway, numb to the chilliness and the cold breeze.
He had been waiting for his mother’s return and reconciliation with his father so they could reunite as a family again. It was all shattered now. When he saw Ge Junjian spending his time so happily with Qin Yirou and others just now, he suddenly felt that he would not be able to blend in with the family.
Was his existence redundant?
“A-Xuan!” His friends ran over and stopped him.
Ge Xuan looked weak and staggering, like a man at the end of his life.
Qin Yirou had run out as well, feeling bad when she saw Ge Xuan’s state and ran over to him despite the rain.
