Chapter 553: Her Adorable Image Was Just An Illusion
“What books did he give you?” asked Huo Tingrui.
Huo Yao halted in her steps and raised her brows. “Do you finally admit that you can’t read the title?”
“… It’s not like I was an English major,” said Huo Tingrui uneasily.
Huo Yao nodded ambiguously. “That’s the same excuse people use when they are ignorant.”
Huo Tingrui suffered a personal attack from his genius little sister.
Before long, they arrived home.
Huo Jinyan sat in the living room and narrowed his eyes when he saw them walk in. He said to Huo Tingrui, “Come over here. We need to have a little chat.”
The moment Huo Tingrui heard his father, he trembled. Even though he did not know how he had provoked his father, he instinctively grabbed his little sister’s arm. “Why don’t you join us?”
Huo Yao glanced at him a couple of times quietly before she pulled her hand away heartlessly. “Weren’t you very cocky sometime ago, when we were next door?”
Huo Tingrui was on the brink of tears. This was his biological father they were talking about here. If he pulled the same stunt in front of him, he would probably lose both his legs right away.
“Ahem…” Huo Yao cleared her throat and said, “Here’s a tip for you.”
“What?” asked Huo Tingrui as though he had found hope.
Huo Yao placed her books on the dining cabinet. She wagged her finger for Huo Tingrui to come over and headed to the fridge. She opened the fridge door unhurriedly and pointed at an object inside. “You should use this.”
“What…” Before Huo Tingrui finished his sentence, he caught sight of the huge durian inside the fridge and became fossilized.
Huo Yao patted him on the shoulder and said with a straight face, “Brother Tingrui, I think this would help.”
Huo Tingrui turned to look at his little sister. Sure enough, his little sister’s adorable and thoughtful appearance was just an illusion.
How could she ask him to kneel on a durian?

Huo Yao pretended not to see his expression. She retrieved a bottled drink from the refrigerator and opened it before she raised her brow. “Shall I take the durian out?”
Huo Tingrui went speechless.
She must be some kind of demon!
He suddenly felt like running away from home.
Huo Jinyan could be heard from the living room asking Huo Tingrui to hurry up. Huo Tingrui scratched his head before he went back to the living room, bereft of all hope.
Huo Yao leaned against the door frame and smiled. She was in a good mood.
She took out her phone and sent Min Yu a text message: [I will go tomorrow.]
She was talking about Old Master Pei’s lunch arrangements since Huo Tingrui interrupted their discussion earlier.
After having the drink, Huo Yao told her parents before she went upstairs. She completely ignored the desperate look in her brother’s eyes.
Huo Tingrui was finally released by Huo Jinyan after a whole hour of interrogation. Just as he was about to return to his room, he caught sight of the books that Huo Yao had forgotten on the dining cabinet. He promptly halted.
Huo Tingrui contemplated for two seconds before he walked over and picked them up. He flipped through their contents to see that they were completely filled with English words. He was clueless about them.
Huo Tingrui felt stupid again. Did they not have the same parents? Why was she so much smarter?
Huo Jinyan wanted to pour water for himself when he saw his son standing there in a daze. He could not resist walking over. He asked his son when he spotted the English book in Huo Tingrui’s hand. “Can you read this?”
