Yun Jian did not expect Yun Zhu to actually voice her whisper aloud. She immediately covered his mouth and pulled him along to speed walk into the hotel.
“No, no, it’s nothing. Xiao Zhu, you heard wrong,” Yun Jian said while she patted her brother’s hair as they walked.
Looking at the blush that crept up Yun Jian’s cheeks, a charming smile made its way onto Si Yi’s face before he, too, took large strides to the hotel following Yun Jian and keeping up with her.
The dishes were served once all of them were seated as Qin Yirou had already made a reservation.
They were not in a private room but the large hall on the ground floor. A private booth was a lot more expensive than the dining hall and Qin Yirou could only afford a meal at the dining hall as Crystal Rhythm Hotel was a four-star hotel after all.
As dishes were served one by one, Yun Jian took a big drumstick piece for Yun Zhu.
Little Yun Zhu was too thin. He probably did not have much to eat during his impoverished days with Yun Hailan, especially when the latter was doing worse than Yun Jian’s family when she was just rebirthed.
“Have more, Xiao Zhu.” Yun Jian placed the large piece of chicken into Yun Zhu’s bowl.
Yun Zhu shook his head when he received the dish, however, picking it up with his chopsticks and dropping it to Si Yi’s bowl. He made a pout with his rosy lips and spoke, “Xiao Zhu doesn’t like drumsticks. Si Yi-gege will eat it.”
Uh... Yun Jian felt a huge question mark hovering over her head. Since when did Xiao Zhu get attached to Si Yi so much? Why did she not know a thing as his elder sister?
“Xiao Zhu, don’t put the drumstick in Si Yi-gege’s bowl even if you don’t like it. It’s impolite to do so,” Yun Jian advised with a pat on the boy’s head. In addition, Si Yi probably would not have the chicken when she had picked it up with her chopsticks.
In spite of it, Si Yi had picked up the drumstick in his bowl and took small bites to slowly devour the meat by the time Yun Jian had just finished teaching Yun Zhu the meal etiquette.
Yun Jian swallowed the rest of her words and kept quiet.
“But Si Yi-gege said that I can give him what I don’t like because we can’t waste our food!” Yun Zhu blinked, looking at Yun Jian with utterly innocent eyes.
Little Yun Zhu’s words left no room for Yun Jian’s comeback. How dare he teach Yun Zhu things like this! Yun Jian turned around to glare at Si Yi, looking absolutely like a young wife who was grumbling about her husband.
Si Yi pressed his lips together and returned her a charismatic smile.
At the receiving end of the handsome grin, Yun Jian felt her heart skip a beat. Quickly lowering her head, she stuffed herself with the contents of her bowl.
As for their interaction, no one on the table noticed as Xu Haozhe was busy chatting with Yun Yi, while Qin Yirou and Dong Ruan were engaged in an animated conversation as well. There was only Yun Zhu who was seated between Yun Jian and Si Yi looking up left and right.
‘What are Jiejie and Si Yi-gege doing?’
“Oh, you guys are here for dinner too? What a coincidence!” A familiar female voice suddenly rang behind Yun Jian.
Tilting her head, Yun Jian saw Chen Yubing in a long maxi dress with a side braid greeting them with a smile as she walked toward them.
Her? Yun Jian frowned.
Chen Yubing made her way over directly and scanned Yun Yi unabashedly before she spoke to Qin Yirou like they had known each other for a long time, “You must be Senior Yun Yi’s mother, right? I’ve often heard Senior Yun Yi mentioning you in school. I’m Chen Yubing, Senior Yun Yi’s school friend. It’s such a coincidence to actually bump into all of you here!”
