After the Gu family’s car drove away from Nancheng Noble Academy, the little girl heard an angry snort coming from her side.

Nuan Nuan “???”

She turned her head to look at her older brother, but what she saw was him hugging his arms, with a slightly raised chin and his head turned to the other side.

Did she hear it wrong?

“Humph!”

This time the voice was more obvious, Gu An glanced at Nuan Nuan, snorted deliberately and turned his head.

Nuan Nuan’s eyes were blank, “Brother, what’s the matter with you?”

Gu An “It’s okay!”

Nuan Nuan stared at him and blinked her eyes softly, then she stopped talking.

Gu An “…”

If you asked one more time, would you gain a little weight?

“Humph!”

Nuan Nuan “…”

Gu An looked at his throat with an uncomfortable look.

“Let me ask you, whose biological sister are you?”

His younger sister didn’t look very smart, so he couldn’t expect her to figure it out on her own.

Nuan Nuan took his hand and shook it gently, and said, “You, you’re my biological brother.”

Gu An: “Then, why do you treat Gu Mingli better than me!”

Nuan Nuan corrected seriously, “That’s the fourth brother of Nuan Nuan, and the fourth brother of the younger brother.”

“How can there be a brother who is against his brother all day long?”

“But he is our fourth brother. If you don’t believe me, ask Dad.”

Gu An suddenly choked, held on reluctantly, but then he quickly realized that he had gone off topic, and immediately put his hands on his hips and said with a fierce look on his face.

“Is that what I said just now? Are you stupid? In the future, you will have to rely on me to protect you in school!”

Nuan Nuan looked at him innocently, “Ow, how amazing is my brother?”

Gu An: “…”

After a long time of fuss, Nuan Nuan finally figured out the situation. Her older brother seemed to be feeling sour…

“Brother, are you jealous?”

Nuan Nuan hit a straight shot that made Gu An’s face flush with embarrassment, and he retorted loudly, “How is it possible! Ha, jealous? What is that! It’s impossible for me to be jealous!”

Gu Linmo, who was driving in front, glanced at the recording equipment in the car, and in a good mood decided to save his young son’s lofty and ambitious words, and take it out later when he was slapped in the face.

“Keep your voice low, don’t scare your sister, and who are you, the young master?”

Father Gu’s voice was cold, hearing this Gu An shrank his neck, a man should know when to bend and stretch, so he didn’t say that he was the young master.

“Anyway, it’s impossible for me to be jealous!”

Nuan Nuan nodded obediently, “Well, I see, my brother is not jealous.”

Gu An snorted and stopped talking. In the dark, the black Maybach drove into the Gu family villa, accompanied by a barking dog. The deserted villa became lively again.

Gu Mingli’s expectation was not realized in the end, because the next day, Mother Gu took the little girl to the playground and water park for a day. The whole day was undoubtedly exciting for Nuan Nuan, but after the excitement, the little girl was very tired and fell asleep.

She didn’t even wake up to pick up Gu An after school.

Gu An, who ran out of the school gate excitedly but only saw his father, was angry and at a loss.

Pulling a look, he threw his schoolbag into the car, and started sulking as soon as he got in the car.

But he just didn’t say anything, huh! Who cares about her coming to pick me up!

Gu Linmo looked away from the tablet and glanced at his younger son, whose expression had changed and who couldn’t hide his emotions at all. He was speechless for a moment.

“Don’t you want to ask why Nuan Nuan didn’t come to pick you up today?”

Gu An hummed loudly, “Who cares about her coming to pick me up, it’s not like I can’t go back myself!”

You’re so stubborn, but you’re so angry, are you sure you don’t care?

Forget it, let the younger son get angry by himself.

Back at home, Gu An glanced around, but unfortunately he still couldn’t see the small figure.

He pretended not to care, “Grandpa, why didn’t that little girl accompany you today.”

Grandpa Gu glared at him, “What little girl, that’s your sister!”

After taking a sip of tea, he looked in Gu An’s eyes.

He said casually, “Your mother accompanied Nuan Nuan to the playground and water park today. The little girl probably overdid it for the first time. When she came back, she was so tired that she fell asleep in the car. Now, she is still sleeping.”

Hearing that, the little entanglement in Gu An’s heart finally disappeared, and he went upstairs muttering.

“Why didn’t Mommy wait for me to go out to play on my holiday.”

After running upstairs, Gu An put away his schoolbag and ran out again, then quietly got into Nuan Nuan’s room.

In the spacious, brightly furnished and warm room, on the soft big bed, the little one was sleeping in a warm and well-behaved posture, holding a rabbit doll on her side, with half of her small face buried under the quilt, such that Gu An could only vaguely recognize it. He saw the small half of her hairy head protruding from the pillow, her fluffy little black hair drooping as neatly as everything else, and with her long and even breathing, the small chest covered by the quilt also rose and fell evenly.

Gu An walked over gently and took down the rabbit doll, and Nuan Nuan’s sleeping appearance was completely exposed.

Two soft little hands rested on one side, ten soft fingers curled up slightly, but they didn’t seem to be too soft. There were even some slight wounds and calluses on her fingers and palms.

The little girl who was sleeping with a red face at the moment was as soft asleep as when she was awake, like a harmless little animal.

Sleeping Nuan Nuan had her eyes closed and her eyelashes curled like a delicate little fan. Under the soft light, the little fans cast small shadows under her eyelid. The delicate facial features and the motionless and quiet appearance made her look more like a well-crafted doll.

No matter how you look at it, she looked like a good bully, but at the same time, it also made people want to protect this fragile-looking little doll.

Gu An put his fingers in the warm and slightly curled fingers and scratched the palm of her hand. When the fingertips touched the calluses on the palm of his sister’s palm and those small wounds, there was a distressed feeling in his eyes that he didn’t even know.

He was still young when his sister was lost. He didn’t remember whether he was sad at that time, after all childhood memories were always easy to lose, so in the three years when they didn’t find Nuan Nuan, time may have diluted a lot of things. The younger sister’s appearance was very vague in his mind, and he didn’t seem to have many cordial feelings.

But now, seeing the exposed wounds on his little sister’s little hands, Gu An hated for the first time anyone who had participated in the kidnapping of his sister.

“Oh… brother.”

Nuan Nuan’s fingers curled up and clenched slowly, and also slowly grabbed Gu An’s fingers, Nuan Nuan’s eyes opened slightly, and she recognized the person standing in front of the window in a daze. Before she was even conscious, she softly called out to her brother.

This brother call made Gu An inexplicably feel a sense of responsibility. He had never regarded himself as an adult like at this moment, he wanted to protect this soft sister under his own wings, and didn’t want her to suffer the slightest bit of harm.
