Yun Jian had just popped a piece of candied fruit into her mouth, and it had yet to melt when she spat it out without much grace once she heard what Ling Yichen said.
As the piece of candied fruit flew out of Yun Jian’s mouth, it rolled a far distance away after it landed on the ground and ultimately slipped into the sewer.
With a straight face, Si Yi put a hand on Yun Jian’s back and patted her softly lest she choked.
“Oh goodness, Yun Jian, what’s wrong with you? Why are you reacting so violently? Is what I said so shocking? Haha, even you got so surprised about it!” Ling Yichen guffawed, thinking that his rare news managed to astound Yun Jian.
After his hearty laugh—and still not knowing what about his gossip that got Yun Jian choked up, he exclaimed without much of a thought, “But youngsters nowadays are really shameless! They just go at it...”
“Yeah! I’d like to see it for myself, haha!” Zhang Shaofeng chorused—recklessly.
“Hah...” Zhang Jian cackled as well and nonchalantly stuffed the candied fruits into his mouth, munching on it slowly.
“I’m fine now,” Yun Jian turned to tell Si Yi once she regained her composure and the latter dropped his hand that had been patting her back.
“Hey, what I said about the young couple doing it in public—that’s the woman who talked about it. Yun Jian, since you’re rarely so interested, I’ll get her here and ask her about it!” Ling Yichen said when he spotted the silhouette of a person and briskly went over with a wave of the hand.
Ling Yichen’s response, in matters like this, was much faster than anyone else.
Yun Jian did not even get to stop him and he was already jogging toward the elder woman.
“Ma’am! Ma’am, hello!” For the sake of courtesy, it was usually considered polite to call someone much older “ma’am”.
Ling Yichen was a sweet talker. He did not rush up to the elder woman and call her “granny” or “old lady” but had caught her attention with the term of address “ma’am”.
Watching Ling Yichen run up to the elder woman, Yun Jian was close to pulling out her butterfly knife and throwing it on him. Despite that, she was only thinking about it; she would not actually do it.
Anyway, Ling Yichen had managed to stop the elder woman now. He looked down at her, who was over 20cm shorter and asked frankly, “Ma’am, I heard that you saw a young couple... uh—going at it in the nearby forest just now. My friends are rather interested in the matter, so can I have the honor of asking you to tell us the details?”
Ling Yichen was not someone shy—actually, he was shameless—so much so that he did not even think that his question was inappropriate.
However, what he said flabbergasted the woman. After all, she was only telling her friend discreetly just now. How did someone hear it?
Despite that, Ling Yichen addressing her as “ma’am” made her feel several years younger, so she agreed to his request promptly.
“See, my friends are over there...” Ling Yichen unabashedly pointed at where Yun Jian and Si Yi were to the woman, and the latter turned to follow casually.
When she saw Yun Jian and Si Yi who were standing not too far away, she cried in surprise, “You—you two...”
Seeing how big of a reaction the woman was making, Ling Yichen, Zhang Shaofeng, and Zhang Jian followed her gaze as well.
