‘I don’t care about that monster,’ Long Liu Bao said. ‘I only want to see if Yuan Gun Gun is living a good life. I want to ask her what happened. If that monster did something to betray her, I’ll make him pay.’
Long Liu Lang played peacekeeper before Long Liu Bo and Long Liu Bao teared each other apart.
‘Bao Bao, you have one month,’ Long Liu Lang said. ‘Not one day more than one month.’
Long Liu Bao accepted Long Liu Lang’s offer.
‘You don’t need to bring anything,’ Long Liu Lang said. ‘You can buy everything you need there.’
Long Liu Bao kissed Long Liu Lang’s cheek.
‘Let’s go,’ Long Liu Lang said.
‘Are you two coming with me too?’ Long Liu Bao asked.
‘Is it a problem?’ Long Liu Bo asked.
‘No problem,’ Long Liu Bao said sweetly.
Long Liu Bao linked arms with Long Liu Bo and Long Liu Lang. She was happy to fly to Paris to see Yuan Gun Gun.
Paris, midday, at Na Liu Ting Du’s home, Na Liu Ting Du held Yuan Gun Gun on his lap.
‘Is Hao Hao napping?’ Na Liu Ting Du asked.
‘Yes,’ Yuan Gun Gun said.
Yuan Gun Gun always felt shy after breast feeding Na Liu Hao.
‘I hired someone to teach you pottery,’ Na Liu Ting Du said. He popped a chocolate in Yuan Gun Gun’s mouth. ‘Because I remembered you said you wanted to learn.’
‘Really?’ Yuan Gun Gun asked. ‘Is my teacher a man or a woman? But you said you didn’t want to me to go to school.’
‘Your teacher is a woman,’ Na Liu Ting Du said. ‘She’s the same age as you. I’m happy for you learn at home. I don’t want you to go to school outside, because I don’t want anything to happen to you.’
Yuan Gun Gun wanted to experience the outside world. But she was happy to stay at home to take of Na Liu Hao, watch TV and browse online.
‘I need to go back to work,’ Na Liu Ting Du said. ‘Take your teacher to the room on the third floor I converted into a pottery room. If you injure yourself then I won’t let you learn pottery anymore.’
Na Liu Ting Du kissed Yuan Gun Gun’s cheek.
‘OK,’ Yuan Gun Gun said.
Na Liu Ting Du put Yuan Gun Gun on the sofa. He stood and adjusted his work suit.
‘Your teacher’s name is Long Liu Bao,’ Na Liu Ting Du said. ‘She speaks Mandarin too.’
‘Long Liu Bao,’ Yuan Gun Gun mumbled.
Yuan Gun Gun’s head hurt. She felt like she should know Long Liu Bao.
‘I prepared two meals in the fridge for you and your teacher to eat together,’ Na Liu Ting Du said. ‘This is a good opportunity for you to make a friend.’
‘Thank you big brother Du,’ Yuan Gun Gun said.
‘Bye Ling Ling,’ Na Liu Ting Du said.
Na Liu Ting Du kissed Yuan Gun Gun’s forehead, and he returned to work.
‘Long Liu Bao… why does her name sound so familiar?’ Yuan Gun Gun mumbled to herself.
Yuan Gun Gun turned off the TV after she heard the doorbell.
Long Liu Bao smiled when she saw Yuan Gun Gun opened the door. Then Long Liu Bao was speechless. Why did Yuan Gun Gun’s round body turned into a stick body? Long Liu Bao recognised Yuan Gun Gun’s pure eyes. Did someone bully Yuan Gun Gun to turn into a stick body?
‘Big sister, you must be Long Liu Bao,’ Yuan Gun Gun said. ‘My name is Na Liu Ling Yan. It’s a pleasure to meet big sister Long. Big sister Long, you can call me Ling Ling.’
‘Our first meeting?’ Long Liu Bao asked.
‘Am I wrong?’ Yuan Gun Gun asked.
Yuan Gun Gun thought Long Liu Bao looked shocked.
‘No,’ Long Liu Bao denied. ‘Ling Ling looks like a model I’ve seen on TV.’
Yuan Gun Gun took Long Liu Bao to the kitchen.
‘Big sister Long, what do you want to drink?’ Yuan Gun Gun asked.
‘Anything,’ Long Liu Bao said. ‘Ling Ling, you can call me Bao Bao.’
