Dong Ruan started the engine and drove away in her Audi without waiting for Yun Jian and Si Yi.
By the time Yun Jian was seated in Si Yi’s Lamborghini, the woman had sped off some distance away.
For a moment, Yun Jian felt like she was being deceived into some sort of ploy.
It was not her first time riding in Si Yi’s car, but she felt a little bewildered this time round. Even when she turned and saw Si Yi’s handsome side profile, she had an irrational impulse to blush.
Luckily, nothing happened during the drive.
Dong Ruan sent her location to Si Yi and the latter found the wonton shop shortly.
It was an antiquated wonton soup shop. The interior was at least ten or twenty years old and was more than outdated for the current time. However, the business had been running fine else it would not have survived to this day.
Many of the older shops around the area were either closed or left to another region, leaving this wonton shop running business alone. There was still an age-old plate hanging above the shop with large words written “Xu’s Little Wonton”.
The owner of the business was an old lady in her fifties or sixties with the family name Xu.
Old Madam Xu used to run the shop with her husband, but the latter had passed away a few years ago.
When Si Yi parked his car and entered the shop with Yun Jian, Qin Yirou, and Dong Ruan were catching up with Old Madam Xu.
Old Madam Xu actually knew Qin Yirou and Dong Ruan as both women loved frequenting her wonton restaurant when they were young. Back then, Old Madam Xu was only around their current age.
There was once when Dong Ruan and Qin Yirou skipped school only to realize that they had only brought enough money for only one bowl of wonton soup. Old Madam Xu had asked her husband to make an extra bowl, giving it free to the girls.
Both Dong Ruan and Qin Yirou had always remembered the incident, never forgetting their gratitude.
When they were about to be seated, Dong Ruan intentionally tugged Qin Yirou to sit together, causing Yun Jian to have to sit with Si Yi.
Yun Jian pressed her lips tight, while Si Yi who understood his aunt’s gesture, wore a rare smile on his charismatic face.
“Here you go, four bowls of wonton soup. It’s fresh out of the pot. The fillings are only made this morning. Try it. See if it still tastes as good as since all those years ago!” Old Madam Xu looked exuberant when she served them bowls of her wonton soup.
Yun Jian scooped the wonton to blow at it before eating it with some soup.
The aroma and delectable taste made her eyes squint.
Roaming the world in her past life, she had tried countless delicacies and exotic food, but this was her first time tasting such delicious wontons like this that were flavorful yet not artificial.
It tasted much better than the delicacies she had.
“It still tastes as good as it used to!”
Qin Yirou and Dong Ruan could not help exclaiming while relishing in the warm dish.
“Have more if it’s nice!” Old Madam Xu chuckled with a hand over her mouth.
She had been keeping business up and running in this shop. The wonton shop was her only tie left of her husband since his death. It was the place of their memories.
While Old Madam Xu talked to Qin Yirou and Dong Ruan, she could not help glancing at Yun Jian and Si Yi. She even exclaimed in the end, “These two kids look very pretty! They look quite compatible as husband and wife! They have a bright future ahead of them!”
The uncalled for compliment caused Yun Jian to choke on her wonton, making her hack several times.
“You okay?” Si Yi dropped the spoon in his hand in a jiffy and softly patted Yun Jian’s back, his action stunning the rest of the company.
