Zhou Shuang found the rice cooked in the large pot exceptionally delicious. She had basically been puking after every meal for the past few days.
But sitting here, eating with this group of kids, she had actually eaten two consecutive bowls of rice with no sign of nausea.
So, she ate another bowl.
Their large dining table was made of many small classroom tables put together. They placed the table in the main hall, and all the little children sat around the table in a circle.
Because of many people gathered around, everyone was perspiring although the ceiling fan was adjusted to its maximum power. Nevertheless, it didn’t affect their appetite.
When Yan Rusheng entered, the first thing he saw was the beads of perspiration on Xuxu’s forehead. He furrowed his eyebrows slightly, and when his gaze swept through the entire congregation, they furrowed even more.
‘Why isn’t there air-conditioning?’
“Hey, Third Master is here,” Matron Huang called out. She was bringing dishes out from the back. When she saw him at the main entrance, it gave her a slight shock.
His appearance surprised Xuxu as well. She then turned around and saw the tall man. He stood by the door, like a statue.
“Why are you here?” she asked. She was holding a bowl with her chopsticks in her mouth. And from where she was, she blended in well with the children.
“To fetch you,” he replied, walking to her then peering down at her.
“Oh.” Then Xuxu stuffed her mouth with another mouthful of rice before looking up at him. She chewed as she asked, “Have you eaten?”
Yan Rusheng shook his head. “No, I haven’t.”
Before Xuxu could reply, Matron Huang immediately suggested, “If Third Master doesn’t mind, he can join us.”
But these were mere formalities.
Who was she kidding? Why would the respectable Third Young Master have such a simple meal with these children at the orphanage?
However, Yan Rusheng lightly nodded his head and agreed with an ‘Mm’.
Shock flashed through Matron Huang’s eyes. Before she could react, Yan Rusheng had lifted up a kid who was sitting beside Xuxu and placed him on an empty chair behind him.
Then, ignoring the looks of contempt from Zhou Shuang and Xuxu, he sat down on the child’s original seat.
It was weird to see such a huge frame sitting on such a small wooden chair.
Xuxu frowned, glaring at him coldly. “Yan Rusheng, must you be so domineering? Can’t you be more polite to these children?”
First, he had carried the child away, then he still had the nerve to sit in his original seat?
Matron Huang hurriedly replied with a smile. “Nevermind, I’ll go get a bowl of rice for Third Master.”
She then turned around and walked towards the kitchen.
Yan Rusheng looked at her and said, “Two bowls.”
“Sure,” Matron Huang replied.
It confused Xuxu. “Why do you want two bowls of rice?”
Couldn’t he get more rice after he was done with the first?
Yan Rusheng gave a mysterious smile. He plainly told Xuxu, “I brought a dog over. It’s by the door. I’ll give him a bowl later.”
Before he could finish, a tall man rushed through the door. “You are the dog. Wen Xuxu is bearing two puppies.”
Young Master Lu angrily entered, taking Xuxu and Zhou Shuang by surprise.
They completely didn’t expect Lu Yinan to be here.
Yan Rusheng took the two bowls of rice from Matron Huang and took a large mouthful. Then he peered up at him, a face of despise as he sized Lu Yinan up. “Look at you, being all petty and calculating. No wonder no woman likes you.”
