What Si Yi said could easily cause misunderstandings. Yun Jian’s cheeks flushed red instantly.
“Hurry up and drive! My mom made dumplings. Let’s go home for dinner.” Yun Jian gave the mischievous Si Yi a nudge.
Consider it her silent approval for Si Yi to attend the tea party with her. When she spoke, there was even a hint of coquetry in her tone.
It stirred Si Yi’s urge for her. The woman he longed for was right in front of him but he could only look at her and have a sample of her; he was unable to get to know her in depth. It was honestly… frustrating.
Once Si Yi recalled how Mo Sen had interrupted him and Yun Jian back when they were in Yulong Mainland, he shook with exasperation.
Yun Jian who sat beside Si Yi gently waved a dainty hand in front of the latter and said after pressing her lips together, “Go on and drive. My mom mentioned in the morning for us to go home and have dumplings.” Qin Yirou had asked everyone home as she planned to make a whole pot of dumplings tonight, so they could all gather and have dinner together. Ge Junjian would be around today as well.
It was only then Si Yi reluctantly tore his gaze away from Yun Jian and held the steering wheel before he restarted the sports car’s engine.
They were going home.
As for his Xiao Jian, they had time. He would get to know her “in depth” one day.
Ge Junjian’s home.
Qin Yirou was bustling like a busy bee currently
Without Lan Su’s help, she had no assistant now. When Lan Su used to be around, she was curious about things on earth, so she had always spent time with Qin Yirou asking the latter to teach her various things, like making dumplings.
The portion of dumplings to be prepared tonight was relatively more. With Lan Su’s help in the past, Qin Yirou had been faster. Today, it was her alone who chopped up the vegetable and minced meat fillings then folded the dumplings.
Si Luo was already at Ge Junjian and Qin Yirou’s house-Snow Eagle having sent her over. She was currently seated in the living room looking a little scared.
The water that was being heated at the back of the kitchen came to a boil but Qin Yirou was unable to attend to it. She softly asked Si Luo who was sitting in the living room, “Uh… Girl, can you give me a hand?”
Seeing that Qin Yirou was calling for her, Si Luo looked over and nodded timidly at Qin Yirou.
“Can you pour the boiling water into the flask for me?” Qin Yirou smiled at Si Luo without pausing what she was doing with her hands.
Si Luo hurried over to help when she saw it.
When Yun Jian and Si Yi came home, Snow Eagle and Lin Wei arrived right after them. Mo Sen who went out to roam around returned shortly as well. Qing You and Gu Nian, as well as Yun Yi and everyone else came back home too.
Qin Yirou set up a huge round table for everyone to sit around it. Little Yun Zhu, Duan Li, Duan Ya, and Ge Junjian were the earliest ones to have seated themselves.
Just as Yun Jian and Si Yi sat down, Qin Yirou brought out bowls of dumplings that she had plated in the kitchen and served each of them.
“Watch out, it’s hot. Eat slowly.” Qin Yirou grinned and went back to the kitchen. The moment she turned around, Snow Eagle stopped her. “Aunty, where’s Si Luo? I don’t see her around?”.
Of course Snow Eagle would be asking since he did not see the girl when he had dropped her off here in the afternoon.
“The sweet girl? Heh, she’s helping me in the kitchen! It’s all thanks to her this afternoon or I wouldn’t have been able to finish all these! Si Luo’s really a nice child. See, there she comes!” Qin Yirou praised, pointing at the girl who was walking over as she spoke.
Si Luo held a bowl of dumplings and placed it in front of Snow Eagle before she took two steps back.
“The child has a pitiful background. Both her parents have passed. You know what? Let her stay with me from now on. I have nothing to do at home anyway, the girl would have a home like this too. What do you think?” Qin Yirou suggested what she had been thinking.
The moment she said that, Snow Eagle replied with a long face, “Aunty, she’s staying with me
