As Su Yue combed her hair, she replied, “He’s a friend, and a classmate, of my Third Brother and Third sister-in-law. All of them grew up together.”
“Is he not married?” Bai Jing asked, confused.
Su Yue frowned. “He has a very annoying fiancée.”
After trying a braid, she dropped her hands and added, her lips pursed, “But he likes her.”
She threw the comb on the table and walked over to her bed. She grabbed a bag, which was hanging from the bed, and hung it over her shoulder.
“Uncle Ming seems to treat you really well,” Bai Jing commented, her gaze landing on Su Yue’s right chest, the gears in her mind moving.
Su Yue nodded. “Yup, just like my Third sister-in-law and Third Brother.”
Bai Jing smiled. “Go quickly. Don’t be back too late, there’s military training tomorrow.”
“Mm.” Su Yue waved and said, “Bye bye, I’ll bring back some nice food for you.”
Bai Jing smiled.
Ming Ansheng called Su Yue and told her he was at the east gate of A University, which was the closest gate to the dormitory.
The moment Su Yue left, she saw Ming Ansheng’s car by the side of the road.
She walked over shyly.
Ming Ansheng saw her coming and opened the door of the front passenger seat for her. “Yueyue.”
Su Yue got on and Ming Ansheng stared at her small face, a warm smile reaching his eyes.
“Where are you bringing me to eat?” Su Yue asked with a frown. Since she got onto the car, she looked downwards and didn’t spare Ming Ansheng a glance.
Ming Ansheng sized her up, confused. “What’s wrong?”
Su Yue ignored him and rushed him. “Aren’t you bringing me to eat? Let’s go.”
“To my place, I’ll cook for you,” Ming Ansheng replied as he started the car.
Su Yue finally looked up at him and asked, “You can cook?”
Her pure eyes took in his handsome features, a face of suspicion.
Ming Ansheng raised his eyebrows meaningfully. “I guess you’re about to find out.”
Su Yue replied with an ‘oh’. Then she mumbled, “Brother Qi Lei cooks better for sure.”
Brother Qi Lei again.
Young Master Ming was about to go mad. He wanted to warn that little lass not to mention that small TCM boy in front of him again.
But… What right did he have?
It took them less than an hour to drive from A University to Ming Ansheng’s place, without traffic. Ming Ansheng brought her to a huge supermarket near his house.
It was the peak hour at the supermarket.
Ming Ansheng entered and was taken aback. It had been a while since he last stepped into such a supermarket and he was at a loss of what to do.
“Uncle Ming, the cart,” Su Yue said, pushing a shopping cart in front of him. She smiled and said, “I’ll sit inside, and you’ll push me, okay?”
Without waiting for his reply, she had already climbed into the cart.
Ming Ansheng was speechless, but he was affectionate to her and started pushing the cart into the supermarket. As he pushed, he joked, “I’ll leave you here after payment.”
“Nobody will want me,” Su Yue said, sticking out her tongue at him as she looked elsewhere.
“That one, that one. I want that flavor of potato chips…”
After much effort, they filled the cart to the brim with snacks. Su Yue reached out to grab a Coke but Ming Ansheng quickly pushed the cart away. “No, I already told you that you should drink less of that.”
“I just want a bottle. I’m about to die of thirst,” Su Yue complained. “You’re too petty, you can’t even buy me one bottle.”
They were now at the clothing section, and Su Yue stood up suddenly.
Ming Ansheng got a shock. “Yueyue, what are you doing?”
