Min Yu took a sip of his tea, gracefully. “After you left, your grandma and I talked a lot.”
Huo Yao thought of the lady who would wake up early every morning to cook breakfast for her and wait for her by the door, every night.
A warm smile spread on her face. “Is everything fine with her?”
Min Yu said slowly, “She is doing fine. But she is not as spirited as before. I think she misses you terribly.”
Huo Yao looked down. For a moment, neither of them said a thing. When she left the small county, Huo Yao had deliberately not waited for her grandma to come back from the hospital so that their parting would be less sad.
A moment later, Min Yu added. “But your foster mom has brought your grandma back to the city. You can visit her any time.”
Huo Yao nodded her head. She knew that He Xiaoman would do so. Hence, she was not surprised to hear this. At the same time, she was puzzled by another fact. “Why do you know all of this?”
When she was still in Fuxian County, this man lived next door. But, he didn’t visit them much, and her grandma had never mentioned him.
Min Yu raised his eyebrows and gave a different response. “I even know where your grandma lives.”
Huo Yao suddenly broke into laughter. “You know so much. Are you a bodyguard whom my foster mom has hired?”
Min Yu’s face twitched as the sound of her voice faded away.
He finally found his voice and said, dryly, “How creative is your thought process!”
Huo Yao cheekily replied to him. “Thank you. Jokes aside, I don’t think that my foster mom is generous enough to hire a bodyguard to follow me.”
Huo Yao’s voice held disdain. Min Yu smirked but didn’t say anything.
The waiter came in to serve the dishes. After all the dishes were served, it was the two of them in the room again.
Min Yu changed the topic and said, “This morning at the gate, you weren’t allowed in. Was it because the security guard took your Acceptance Letter away?”
“So, you also know about this?” Huo Yao stared at him.
Min Yu smiled and said, “I overheard it.”
Huo Yao pouted and picked a piece of rib for herself and mumbled. “How good is your hearing!”
Min Yu leaned back in his chair. He had not touched the dishes yet. “I take it that your transfer process was not smooth.”
His remark seemed to hold a deeper meaning.
Huo Yao paused in her actions. She remembered the call which she had received from He Xiaoman and a scornful grin flashed past her lips.
She said with a shrug, “Just some vile person causing trouble.”
“Do you need any help?” Min Yu asked.
Huo Yao kept her eyes on the dishes, while the food in her mouth muffled her voice. “Nope.”
After dinner, Min Yu paid the bill and asked Huo Yao. “Do you want to visit your grandma now?”
Huo Yao shook her head. “No, it is getting late today. Some other time.”
“I will text you her address later,” said Min Yu.
By the time Huo Yao arrived home, it was almost eight. She felt some odd vibe in the house as soon as she came through the door.
Huo Jinyan and Song Ning sat in the living room with the TV off. They seemed to be in a serious mood. Why?
Huo Yao wondered.
She greeted them and said, “Mom, Dad, I am back.”
Song Ning stood up from the sofa and walked to Huo Yao. Since her mind was weighed down, even her smile was forced.
“How was your first day at school? Any problems?” Song Ning asked.
“It was good.”
After two seconds’ of pause, Huo Yao asked her. “Mom, do you have any questions for me?” If you find any errors ( broken links, non-standard content, etc.. ), Please let us know so we can fix it as soon as possible.
