Miracle Pill Maker Bullies the Boss - Chapter 353
Huo Tingrui ignored his little sister’s bemused expression. He walked out of the door and checked both on the left and right, but the black car was nowhere to be seen.
Huo Yao touched her nose and was bewildered. She turned her head and looked at Huo Tingrui. “Brother Tingrui, what car, what strange person are you talking about?”
“I saw everything!” sneered Huo Tingrui as he walked back.
“Saw what?” Huo Yao paused before she recalled. “Are you talking about the car I came home in?”
Huo Tingrui nodded. “Yes! There was a guy!” That was the problem.
He contemplated before adding. “The car was parked outside our door for at least ten minutes.”
Sigh! Now she knew what her second older brother was talking about.
Huo Yao shrugged, throwing her palms in the air. She looked at him without any pretense. “Would you believe it if I said that he is just a friend?”
“Of course, I trust you.” But he did not trust an outsider.
After all, his little sister was pretty, adorable, and innocent. What if she ended up being stolen by some evil pig?
Huo Yao nodded. “Good. Then let’s go inside.”
Saying so, she walked into the villa with firm steps.
Huo Tingrui was stunned. That was it?
Was she not going to explain herself?
Huo Tingrui glanced outside once more before he closed the door and followed her.
After they entered the villa…
“Yaoyao, you’re back.” Huo Jinyan did not overthink things like his son when he saw his daughter come in.
“Dad, why haven’t you gone to bed yet?” Huo Yao poured herself a drink.
“I was waiting for you to come back.” Huo Jinyan yawned before he continued. “I’m going to bed now. Have an early rest.”
After Huo Jinyan took two steps, he turned to look at Huo Tingrui and wondered why he looked so angry.
But, the next second, he shook his head and went upstairs.
Huo Yao took a sip of water. Ever since she had walked in, she could sense her second older brother’s eyes following her movement.
She put down the glass and pressed her forehead helplessly. She said, “Brother Tingrui, behaving like this will only drive us apart.”
Huo Tingrui said, “There’s a way we can avoid this.”
Huo Yao glanced at him and didn’t react.
She found him immensely annoying. These words inexplicably rose in Huo Tingrui’s mind when he caught sight of the look in her eyes.
He cleared his throat before walking over to her. “From now on, you have to come home by 8:00 pm.”
“It’s not safe for a little girl to be out at night. When you go out, you can call me to pick you up,” continued Huo Tingrui.
Huo Yao looked at him quietly.
Initially, Huo Tingrui had felt rather justified in his actions, but he suddenly lost his stance when Huo Yao gave him an unfathomable look. His eyes flitted away as he said, “In any case, you can’t take rides from unknown men.”
Huo Yao shook her head. “Brother Tingrui, I’m heading up to my room.”
She did not feel like explaining anything further nor did she want to listen to him ramble on.
She turned to go upstairs but Huo Tingrui followed behind her. “Yao, listen. There are too many bad people in society. You are too young. Don’t get lured by some sweet-talking men.”
Huo Yao walked quicker and was speechless.
“Also, I wanted to tell you a long time ago. Stay far away from those stupid boys at school. They are up to no good…”
Huo Tingrui kept nagging as he followed Huo Yao to her room. His voice only stopped abruptly when the door closed in his face.
Huo Tingrui: “…”
Was it easy being an older brother?
