Hearing Ge Junjian say that they were going for a cookout this morning, little Yun Zhu, Duan Li, and Duan Ya were ecstatic. All three of them had carried their prettiest backpacks and were standing by the staircase to watch Qin Yirou and Ge Junjian pack up the barbecue and grilling equipment.
“No way, how could this be okay? You guys are going out on a cookout and I can’t go along? You’re doing this to me on purpose!” Just as Yun Jian and Si Yi got to the stairs, they heard an enraged male voice coming from upstairs—it was obviously Ya Dang.
“Your injuries are so serious. Barbecue isn’t good for your health. Can you hold yourself back from eating if you go with us? So you can’t go.” Mo Sen’s voice rang after him.
Ya Dang looked and acted pretty normal but he actually had no self-restraint when it came to food.
“Sh*t! You’re all abandoning me, leaving me alone at home! Mo Sen, you lil’…” Ya Dang raised his voice slowly before it dropped and he sounded like he was talking to someone else. “Snow Eagle, you be the judge. Does Mo Sen even make sense? What about for better and for worse together?”
Snow Eagle must be smiling as there was a suppressed hint of a smile in his voice. “Alright, your fault for losing and getting beaten up like this. You should just be good and listen to him. Haha.”
“That’s all because of Lan Su…” Ya Dang retorted in frustration.
While Ya Dang, Mo Sen, and Snow Eagle chatted upstairs, Yun Jian who stood downstairs saw Lan Su coming in from the door and was going to go upstairs.
“Yun Jian,” she greeted said girl once she came back in from outside.
“Mn.” Yun Jian nodded with a smile.
Lan Su had naturally heard the conversation of the three guys upstairs as well. She went up ahead of Yun Jian while the latter and Si Yi walked behind her leisurely.
Once they got upstairs, Ya Dang and the other guys who were standing beside the staircase were stunned.
“What the heck! Idiot, why didn’t you make a sound when you’re coming up?” Ya Dang cursed; he was just talking about Lan Su when he suddenly caught the latter coming up from downstairs.
Lan Su looked at Ya Dang out of the corner of her eye before she went past the three of them to go into her room.
Ya Dang gulped. Just when he thought that Lan Su got angry, she turned to tell him, “I won’t be going to the cookout. I’ll stay home to keep you company.”
Consider it a small compensation to Ya Dang. After all, Ya Dang had only gotten injured because of Lan Su back then. If she did go to the cookout with the rest and leave Ya Dang at home alone, no one would feel pleased about it.
“No, idiot, you… I don’t even mean that.” Ya Dang thought that Lan Su was angry and ruffled his hair in annoyance before snapping, “I don’t even want you to stay home. Who wants your company? I get annoyed when I see you!” Of course, he did not mean that.
As he spoke, he turned around to march away huffing.
“These two are… really quarrelsome!” Snow Eagle could not help laughing and went to Si Yi, greeting him with a happy “young master”.
“We’re departing! Hurry up and come down!” Qin Yirou called out from downstairs.
Right after she shouted, knocks came from the door. It was not shut but the person outside had still knocked as a gesture.
“Is anyone in?” Someone popped their head in to peek. When the person saw Qin Yirou, he invited himself and a few others into the house casually.
“J-Jiahao?” Qin Yirou was surprised when she saw the person coming in.
