Chapter 70: I Want To Pounce Into Your Embrace
The little girl turned around and complained to the woman, “Mommy, why aren’t I the older sister? If I was older, then brother would have to listen to me~~”
Song Yaoyao couldn’t stop her eyes from curving as she thought something.
If she remembered correctly, she may have said the same childish words once before.
“Number 023, please come to the counter to collect your meal. Number 023, please…”
Song Yaoyao walked over and collected her hamburger and hot milk. When she returned, she discovered the cute pair of twins was sitting opposite her.
She pulled out a textbook from her backpack and studied it as she ate.
Suddenly, she felt a tug on the hem of her shirt and she looked down in surprise.
The little girl in the pink cardigan tilted her head and asked cutely, “Big Sis, are you crying?”
Song Yaoyao subconsciously touched her face. When did she start crying?
“Big Sis, don’t be sad~ I’ll give you the candy that my brother gave me~ You need to be happy~”
The little girl pulled a fruit candy from her pocket and shoved it into Song Yaoyao’s hand. Her dark eyes were bright and clear.
Song Yaoyao opened her hand and looked in surprise at the questionably-aged candy that was wrapped in a colorful and wrinkly wrapper.
She suddenly smiled. “Thank you.”
“You’re welcome~ Cheer up, Big Sis!”
“Hey! You’re not supposed to talk to strangers. Don’t you remember what Mommy told you?” The little boy pulled the little girl over with seriousness.
“But…but Big Sis looked really unhappy…” she said sadly as she bit her nails.
The little boy looked at Song Yaoyao and said in a mature tone, “Hey, lower your head!”
Song Yaoyao found this amusing. She lowered her head slightly and said softly like a child, “What’s going on?”
As soon as she said this, she felt a pat on her head.
The little boy who was standing on his tiptoes lowered himself and mumbled helplessly, “At your age, don’t you know how to take care of yourself? This is an exception!” He pulled the little girl to go look for their parents and said stiffly, “You should stop being unhappy!”
Song Yaoyao blinked and touched the spot where the child had patted her in surprise. In her hand, she was still holding the colorful candy.
Did two little children just comfort her??
The restaurant was crowded.
Song Yaoyao flipped open a page of questions and lowered her pen.
Through the misty window, the young woman’s petite figure looked peaceful and beautiful.
She didn’t notice a car drive past and suddenly reverse.
Finally, it stopped, and a figure stepped out.
At some point, a light drizzle had started falling from the sky. Amidst the cold night, the warm street lights looked particularly cozy.
A car honked from the street outside.
Song Yaoyao lifted her head in shock and looked toward the direction of the sound.
Separated by the street, a man on the opposite side was holding an umbrella, blocking half his face.
He was dressed in a gray shirt and black suit pants as his coat fluttered in the wind.
His shoulders were wide, his hip was narrow, and he had a tall figure.
On the wrist that was holding the umbrella, a jade-white amulet was swaying slightly.
Without seeing his face, Song Yaoyao knew who it was.
She gently stood up and her heart raced as she rushed out of the restaurant.
She completely ignored the calls of the restaurant staff.
“Miss, your backpack!”
The wind whistled past Song Yaoyao’s ears and the icy-cold rain fell on her face, but she weaved her way across the street without stopping and pounced into the man’s embrace.
The clear sound of the man’s breathing immediately enveloped her.
