After hanging up, Xia Xibei headed for the shop that Song Jiaren had told her about.
She glanced around. The surroundings were pretty awesome, and although there were several milk tea shops nearby, the area was teeming with people.
Of course, that would mean that the competition would be intense as well. Every day, some shops would get closed down and new shops would open up.
Xia Xibei was satisfied after having a look at the surrounding environment. Fang Yongxin always made sound choices. Besides, she was also confident in her own milk tea creation.
She left the place along with Song Jiaren after completing her review, leaving Fang Yongxin to take care of the rest.
After walking some distance, Xia Xibei felt Song Jiaren tug on her sleeve.
Xia Xibei turned around to look, seeing that quite a large group of people had gathered not too far away.
“It looks like they are catching dolls! Let’s go and have a look!”
Song Jiaren always had a fondness for commotion, hurrying over and pulling Xia Xibei along with her.
Xia Xibei only understood what the clamor was all about when they arrived at the spot.
The boy who was maneuvering the claw machine was a bit handsome but what actually captured people’s eyes was the endearing pet crouching at his feet.
Walking pets with leashes hadn’t become a trend then. Moreover, the shopping street did not restrict pets from entering.
The boy had a very gorgeous cat beside him, which Xia Xibei recognized as a chinchilla.
Its creamy yellow fur was clean and fluffy, its bluish green eyes big and round, looking around adorably. It had a cute rotund body, and there was an air of elegance and glamor about it. The girls were so enraptured by it that they couldn’t move at all.
It was sitting obediently beside the boy’s feet, clawing at the captured dolls with its paws. Once in a while, it tilted its head and shrieked with delight.
The girls were busy glancing between the boy and the cat, trying hard not to scream.
“It’s so cute!”
“What type of cat is that? It’s super adorable!”
“Awwwww! How I wish I could take it home!”
“The owner is pretty handsome too, and he’s good at catching dolls!”
“No way, I’m about to pass out! Both the cat and its owner are super lovely!”
Song Jiaren’s eyes lit up the moment she saw the cat
“What a beautiful cat!” she exclaimed
“It’s a chinchilla,” Xia Xibei told her.
“I want it so bad! It’s so well-behaved!” Song Jiaren clutched her chest, nearly dead due to the overload of cuteness.
The next moment, she met the cat’s gaze.
“Ahh! It’s looking at me!” Song Jiaren was short of breath.
The cat was extremely gorgeous!
Xia Xibei was stunned for a moment, seeing the cat picking up a doll with its snout and sauntering towards her with graceful steps.
Others were stunned by the scene as well, unconsciously making way for it—what was it trying to do?
The owner, who was busy with the claw machine, was also alerted to what was happening due to all the commotion. When he turned around, he was also shocked.
Honey had always been obedient. Although it wasn’t afraid of strangers, it wouldn’t approach them willingly either.
Otherwise, he wouldn’t have brought it to a place like this.
But what was happening in front of him right now?
With all eyes pinned on it, the cat walked up to Xia Xibei, the doll dangling from its mouth. Then, it loosened its bite and set the doll down before her feet. It proceeded to snuggle her feet before raising its head and meowing at her.
“God damn it!” Song Jiaren gasped sharply. “It’s giving you a present! That means it likes you!”
The others were envious and jealous at the same time. So did cats turn out to like good-looking humans as well?!
“Honey!” The boy exclaimed, rushing over and squatting down, all while looking shocked. “What are you doing?”
He reached out in an attempt to carry it away, but it writhed its body unexpectedly and dodged his grasp. Then it snuggled into Xia Xibei’s feet once again, looking as if it was infatuated with her.
The boy was now speechless.
So, who was the owner now? Damn it!
