“Yeah . She’s been really good to me . ”
“I can see that . She’s a very honest woman . ”
Sitting on the sofa, Huo Mian picked up an apple and bit into it .
“Mom… had a hard life . My adoptive father died early, leaving her to take care of me and my younger brother alone while being branded as Huo Zhenghai’s other woman . ”
“It’s all in the past . Now she’s living a happy life, right?”
The sisters talked about Yang Meirong in low voices while the latter made dumplings for the two girls .
Shortly, white dumplings were dropped into the boiling water .
“They are in the pot now and will be ready in a little while . You must be starving . ”
“I’m okay . ” Lu Yan smiled .
“Mom, I’m starving,” Huo Mian said playfully .
“Of course, you are . You’re now eating for two people . You can’t starve my grandson…”
“Mom, Zhixin is still working?” Huo Mian asked casually .
“He drove to the countryside with Bella, saying Bella’s maternal grandfather is critically ill . ”
“Oh, I see…”
“Girl, sit down and eat some oranges . I bought them this morning in the market; they are very fresh . ”
Not remembering Lu Yan’s name, Yang Meirong urged her to eat fruits with warmth .
“Okay . Thank you, Auntie . ”
Lu Yan sat on the sofa with Huo Mian and watched the TV .
Soon, the dumplings were ready . Yang Meirong brought three plates of steaming dumplings to the table with several freshly made cold vegetable dishes .
In the cozy environment, Lu Yan found the home-made food very delicious and ate a whole plate of 20 dumplings .
She burped in contentment .
“Auntie, I like food made with flour including dumplings, wontons, and hand-made noodles . I’ve eaten all kinds of dumplings in the past years, but I found your dumplings are the most delicious . ”
“Then you must come here often, and I’ll make them for you . The next time you come, I’ll make dumplings filled with pickled vegetables with pork and green onion with beef . They are all delicious . ”
Hearing the girl’s praise, Yang Meirong was very happy .
Huo Mian ate many dumplings, too . Then the sisters drove back to South Hill Manor .
“Sis, I’ll take a shower . ”
“Okay . ”
After a while, Lu Yan called out from the bathroom, “Sis, bring me a bottle of shampoo . This one is empty . ”
“Okay . ”
Huo Mian went to the closet and took a bottle of shampoo; opening the door of the bathroom, she walked in and handed the bottle to Lu Yan .
Then she froze for a moment as if something struck her .
“What’s wrong?” Lu Yan looked back .
“Nothing . It’s the first time I see you naked and find your chest is as flat as mine . ” Huo Mian tried to make a joke .
“Hahaha! Dr . Huo, you’re a bad girl…”
Lu Yan giggled .
Huo Mian walked out and closed the door .
Then, she walked into the study with heavy steps…
Walking upstairs, Qin Chu saw something wrong on Huo Mian’s face and quickened his steps to check up on her .
The moment he pushed open the door to the study, he froze .
Huo Mian sat on the chair with tears on her face .
“Honey… close the door,” afraid others would see her tears, she asked Qin Chu to close the door .
“What’s wrong? Who made our Vice Director Huo cry?”
Hurting inside, Qin Chu strode over and pulled her into his arms .
Leaning her head on Qin Chu’s chest, she cried until tears soaked his black shirt .
“What’s wrong?” Qin Chu caressed her hair lightly .
“Honey, I just brought shampoo to Yan . She’s showering . ”
Qin Chu knew Huo Mian must have seen something, or she wouldn’t be crying like this right now .
