Seeing that Yun Jian agreed to come for dinner next Saturday, Chen Zhenchuan cracked a grin. He quite liked Yun Jian as his daughter’s best friend.
“That’s set then! Young man… you too, come together next Saturday! The more, the merrier, haha!” Chen Zhenchuan who was speaking and noticed Si Yi standing next to Yun Jian invited him along as well.
Before Si Yi said anything, Yun Jian had rejected the invitation on his behalf. “He’s occupied next Saturday. He probably won’t be able to make it.”
Yun Jian’s refusal on Si Yi’s behalf prompted Chen Zhenchuan to reply smoothly, “Ah, that’s a pity!”
Actually, Chen Zhenchuan had invited Si Yi out of courtesy—because there was no way he invited only Yun Jian when the young man came along with her to visit Chen Xinyi.
If Si Yi had gone along with an invitation like this, it would have resulted in substantial awkwardness. Hence, Yun Jian rejected it for him to avoid any ill feelings.
Yun Jian left the fruit basket before she left, making He Shiya and Chen Zhenchuan thank her profusely once more. After finding out that Chen Xinyi was perfectly fine, she left the hospital with Si Yi.
Accepting Chen Xinyi’s request, Zhang Shaofeng had sent Yun Jian downstairs all the way from the hospital ward to the exit of Longmen City People’s Hospital.
“Master, don’t worry. We’ll take care of Xinyi, she’ll certainly be fine! I also plan to take a day off from school this week to keep her company in the hospital so she won’t get bored. Heh heh, and master, thank Zhang Jian for me yeah? Thankfully he’s strong enough to carry Xinyi all the way to the car and out of it into the hospital too.”
Zhang Shaofeng told Yun Jian several things at once and the latter nodded.
“I’ll tell him in the evening when we go back to school.”
Yun Jian assured Zhang Shaofeng and bid goodbye to him before turning to leave with Si Yi.
Longmen City People’s Hospital was around the busy city area, so something struck Yun Jian not too long after she left the hospital with Si Yi.
“I’m going to buy cellphones for my mom and my brother. For the convenience of contact,” Yun Jian told Si Yi as they stood by the road.
Due to what happened to Qin Yirou previously, Yun Jian found it a necessity to buy a cellphone for Qin Yirou and Yun Yi each, in order to contact them anytime.
Even if what happened were to repeat itself, she could track the phone down using the program and find them instantly.
“Okay,” Si Yi agreed softly and held Yun Jian’s small hand in his larger one to lead them to the road diagonally opposite to their right.
It was a busy marketplace there.
Cellphones were beginning to gain traction among rich people nowadays. Nokia had already launched the WAP phone, Nokia 7110, in Country Z in 1999.
Yun Jian caught up with the trend this time as she bought two Nokia 7110 cellphones for Qin Yirou and Yun Yi.
When Yun Jian and Si Yi went back home past 9 in the morning, they saw Qin Yirou and Ge Junjian getting things ready for a barbecue.
It was going into spring and the weather was getting warmer. The piercing cold of winter had already passed and it was now the season where everything on earth was waking up and getting back into life. It also meant that spring was here.
Spring always made one think of spending time in the outdoors.
Not only were schools organizing spring tours, Ge Junjian had taken a day off from the military today and prepared tools for a barbecue to take the young kids, Yun Zhu and the girls, to a cookout. Yun Jian did not have to go to school on the weekend today too, so Ge Junjian had spontaneously decided to take the children out for a cookout.
“Xiao Jian, A-Yi, you guys are back? Pack up what you want to bring along. We’re leaving soon!” Qin Yirou exclaimed happily.
