Since Shen Xi had earphones on, she could not catch what the man said. She stood up in excitement. “Brother, you’re back?”
With a frown, Li Yuan put on a straight face, giving out a distant and unapproachable presence.
Shen Xi cautiously stared at him and whispered, “Brother, are you angry? Is something bothering you?”
Li Yuan pursed his lips, cold as a thin ice blade.
“Brother, don’t be unhappy.” Shen Xi felt a pit in her stomach by the anger reflected in the man’s face.
She never wished to see him unhappy and when he was down, his brows would entangle in a knot and his lips pressed together.
Watching the girl panicked, Li Yuan sighed to himself and gruffly replied, “I’m not.”
“Brother, I have no idea how to turn that frown upside down.” Shen Xi rubbed her nose, appearing a little nervous. “How about I sing you a song?”
The frigidity in Li Yuan’s eyes finally lifted a little.
Shen Xi placed her phone and book on top of the wall before turning to him. “Wait for me, Brother. I’d need a prop.”
Li Yan observed as the young lady swiftly made her way down and soon came back up. God knew what she went to retrieve.
Shen Xi secretively whipped out a pair of bamboo clappers hidden in her sleeve and cleared her throat. “Slap once on the clappers. Hang on! I ain’t boasting ’bout nothing else.

Li Yuan noticed the girl’s palm was frozen red and sitting on her palm was a Jade Guanyin.
Before he had a chance to talk, Shen Xi acted on her own accord and hung it over his neck. “Wear it. They say it works a charm.”
Li Yuan asked, “What about yours?”
