“Mn.” Mo Sen nodded and repeated his question. “Who’s the woman?”
“She’s on young madam’s side.” Ya Dang chuckled and went to sling his arm around Mo Sen’s shoulder looking at him, asking with ease, “Aren’t you the carefree one? Why are you asking about it?”
“Young master’s back.” Mo Sen did not answer him directly but diverted the topic.
“Oh.” Ya Dang nodded, having guessed it.
Mo Sen had gone back to An Hun Group with Si Yi. Now that he was back here, the latter must be back as well.
“Let’s go, let’s go, back home!” Ya Dang could already guess that their young master must have gone to Yun Jian again, so he slung his arm around Mo Sen like a bro and led them back to the house.
Yun Jian took the three children to a restaurant nearby.
The place was called Jiangxi Recipe, a famous place around the neighborhood for serving delicious food. Jiangxi cooking catered to most people’s appetite, even while some provinces stayed away from spicy food, Jiangxi’s dishes had a unique flavor that people just could not get enough of.
There was no doubt that everyone had their own preferences but Yun Jian quite liked it. She could handle a little spice but Yun Zhu, Duan Li, and Duan Ya did not know how to appreciate spices yet, so she asked for mild-flavored dishes when she ordered.
Having ordered three types of meat and three types of vegetables, Duan Li and Duan Ya were dumbfounded when the dishes were served.
Both of them had never had something so scrumptious in all their life. While the meals served in school were already delicacies to them, school lunches that were prepared in bulk could never compare to fresh individually prepared dishes here.
Duan Li and Duan Ya basically wolfed down their meal.
“Eat slower.” Yun Jian smiled with crinkling eyes.
“There’s a total of 16 drumsticks. There are four of us so four pieces for each person!” Yun Zhu did the math quickly and helped distribute the drumsticks to everyone.
He was a smart boy. Worried that Duan Li and Duan Ya would not take them, it prompted him to evenly share the pieces of chicken to their bowls.
Yun Jian had also noticed that the girls had not been touching the meat once the dishes were served. The children had probably not had meat at all; even if they had some at home, someone like Duan Shi would never let them have it. It had most probably made a habit out of them, making them too scared to help themselves to some.
“I don’t feel like having them. You guys eat more.” Yun Jian smiled with her eyes, her long eyelashes fluttering.
Duan Li blinked her eyes before telling Yun Jian, “We won’t eat if you’re not eating too, jiejie.” As she spoke, she put her chopsticks down.
Once she did, Duan Ya who sat beside her dropped her chopsticks as well following her elder sister. She did not even know what was happening. Duan Ya only knew that her elder sister had placed her chopsticks down, so she had to do it as well.
“I’m not eating too if you’re not, jiejie.” Yun Zhu followed suit and placed his pair of chopsticks down.
Yun Jian chuckled at their reaction and picked up a drumstick with her chopsticks to take a bite and swallow.
When Yun Zhu and Duan Li saw that, they happily picked up their dining utensils again to resume devouring their drumsticks. Duan Ya had been quiet but she clumsily collected her chopsticks too following Duan Li’s actions...
Unknowingly, the corners of Yun Jian’s lips rose as she watched the bright beam on the children’s faces. She had never felt such a heartwarming sense in her previous and current life combined.
As Yun Jian held the drumstick with her chopsticks and was about to devour it while dipping her head, a gentle and rich voice of a male rang from the side.
“Does the drumstick taste good?”
Yun Jian snapped her head to the familiar voice abruptly.
