Shi Qinghui went out in a hurry after hanging up the phone.
Xia Xibei whispered to Tang Luo, “You don’t like Zheng Xiaowen?”
Tang Luo smiled, “Don’t you feel the same way?”
Xia Xibei looked him up and down, showing a subtle smile.
At that moment, Qiao Yanjue had arrived just in time to see Xia Xibei and Tang Luo looking at each other with smiles.
Right away, he became expressionless.
When Song Jiaren saw Qiao Yanjue, she stood up happily. “Are you here to pick up Beibei?”
Wow, a handsome man was so easy on the eyes!
“Yes,” Qiao Yanjue said with a small smile. “I happened to be nearby, so I’m picking her up along the way. Do you still have things to do?”
“We’re done,” Song Jiaren shook her head, “But we haven’t finished eating.”
Everyone had been busy dealing with Zheng Xiaowen earlier, and after she left, they had been busy making Yu Ziqi change his deskmate, and then Qiao Yanjue had come over as soon as the matter was resolved.
This all took a total of 20 minutes, which was not nearly enough time to finish a meal.
Seeing the untouched dishes on the table, Qiao Yanjue smiled, “I haven’t eaten yet either.”
“You haven’t? Then join us,” Song Jiaren said, very welcoming.
“Well…” He looked towards Xia Xibei for approval.
Xia Xibei pursed her mouth. It was just a meal. Why did he need to ask her for permission?
“Let’s eat together,” she had no choice but to say.
Qiao Yanjue sat down beside Xia Xibei without apology.
Song Jiaren had sat on Xia Xibei’s left, and as there was an empty space to her right, he sat down there.
After sitting down, he showed a cordial smile to Tang Luo, who was next to him.
“So Little Tang is here too.”
Faced with his smiling face, Tang Luo could only feel a cold back, so he carefully moved a little to the side and squeezed out a smile, “Hello, Brother Qiao.”
“Don’t be nervous.” Qiao Yanjue said with a smile, noting his nervous action. “I have a good relationship with Mo Bonan. You are his younger brother, and naturally my younger brother too.”
These words twisted the expressions on both Xia Xibei and Tang Luo’s faces, but especially that of Xia Xibei.
Her eyes widened and she looked at him in disbelief. Was he possessed by some spirit?!
Although Qiao Yanjue’s recent actions had completely changed her impression of Lord Jue, these were not the kind of words he would say!
Younger brother? What the…!
Tang Luo’s expression also stiffened. He didn’t know Qiao Yanjue very well, but that didn’t mean he didn’t understand anything.
Was it raining red in the sky?!
Qiao Yanjue didn’t seem to notice their shock. With a slight smile at the corner of his mouth, he stated, “Let’s eat. Everyone must be hungry already.”
When he spoke, people involuntarily picked up their chopsticks.
Before Xia Xibei had taken two bites, there was a peeled shrimp in her bowl.
She turned to meet Qiao Yanjue’s gaze.
“Go ahead. You like shrimp.”
Xia Xibei was stunned, asking, “How do you know I like to eat shrimp?”
“Didn’t we have dinner together before? You ate almost a whole plate of shrimp,” Qiao Yanjue replied, neatly peeling the shrimp.
Xia Xibei remembered that when they had moved in two days ago, they had a meal with Liu Manhong.
She really did like eating shrimp, but she hadn’t expected Qiao Yanjue to remember what she liked to eat.
At this moment, her chest felt both full and sore, which was a bit odd.
Qiao Yanjue didn’t think he had said anything strange, continuing to peel the shrimp.
After a while, there were a great deal of shrimp shells on his plate, and Xia Xibei’s bowl held a small mountain of shrimp.
“Brother Qiao, you are too kind to Beibei!” Song Jiaren exclaimed enviously, “If I had a brother like you, I would smile in my dreams!”
