After being touched by Xia Xibei, Asura immediately became energized, even its fur appearing to have a lot more luster.
It happily rubbed Xia Xibei’s calf, its tongue darting out cheerfully and its tail wobbling vivaciously.
Yu Ziqi was unable to speak.
Guess his worries were for nothing!
While everyone was hanging out, Xia Xibei’s phone rang.
“Time for dinner,” a voice said from the other end.
“Okay, I know. I will go back,” Xia Xibei nodded. She hung up the phone, turned to everyone, saying, “You guys should go back.”
Xia Xibei checked the time. It was almost seven o’clock and time for dinner.
As soon as she had returned to the neighborhood today, Ren Juncheng came over with Honey, and Yu Ziqi also took the opportunity to take his dog for a walk.
By now, everyone should be hungry.
“Okay. Honey, let’s go home.” Ren Juncheng reached out for Honey.
Honey lay in Xia Xibei’s arms and flicked her tail at him, refusing to come down.
“If you don’t come down, I will tell her to not play with you tomorrow!” Ren Juncheng threatened, his face becoming serious.
“Meow!” Honey understood and bared its teeth at him.
Ren Juncheng’s face became even more grim. This creature was really too much! Was it so sure he would never abandon it?
“Asura, let’s go back.”
Yu Ziqi put a dog leash on Asura, about to leave.
However, Asura circled Xia Xibei, unwilling to go back.
The two long-suffering pet owners exchanged heartbroken looks, then turned to Xia Xibei, silently protesting and urging.
This had been their routine for days.
If Xia Xibei didn’t try to get the animals to leave, they would never go home.
Today was actually okay, since King Chu was not here. Otherwise, the situation would have been even more chaotic.
“Alright, you have to go back.” Xia Xibei bent her waist and put Honey down.
Honey reluctantly dropped to the ground while looking pitiful, her big eyes slightly moist and shiny, her wispy voice capable of melting people’s hearts.
However, Xia Xibei stayed firm.
“Okay, I’m hungry. I have to go eat dinner.”
She patted Honey and Asura on the head, urging them, “Go home!”
Since she had spoken, though they were reluctant to do so, they could only leave, constantly looking back at her.
After sending away the two small creatures, Xia Xibei went home.
As soon as she got to the door, the nearby door opened and Qiao Yanjue walked out.
“Come over for dinner.”
The housekeeping auntie Qiao Yanjue had found was already working there. She had excellent cooking skills and Xia Xibei liked the food very much.
At Qiao Yanjue’s insistence, she had been eating at his place for the last few evenings and she had gotten used to it.
It didn’t seem to be too bad with someone sharing the meal.
Xia Xibei followed Qiao Yanjue in, then saw an unexpected figure.
“Brother Huo? What are you doing here?”
Huo Zijun stood up in the living room, smiling, “If Big Qiao hadn’t told me, I wouldn’t have known you had moved here!”
“I never thought that I would move here either. It’s all fate,” Xia Xibei said with a smile. “Would you like to visit my place?”
“Of course!” Huo Zijun nodded with a smile.
“Ahem…” Qiao Yanjue coughed slightly, interrupting their conversation. “Let’s eat first. We can talk while eating.”
“Great!” Huo Zijun agreed.
He walked to the dining table and was just about to get Xia Xibei to come over when he saw Qiao Yanjue pulling the chair beside him and Xia Xibei sit down next to him.
