Chapter 113: It’s No Use Sucking Up
As though she knew what Qin Xueru was thinking, Su Yayan took the initiative and got up, filled up a bowl of soup, pass it to her while she said, “Don’t worry, Aunt Qin, these are all specially made for you. Since uncle isn’t here, I’ll take care of you, I won’t let you be over-nourished.”
Qin Xueru felt like her face was burning up, but a glimmer of hope began to grow in her heart. “Yanyan, can you really heal…”
“It’s just to nourish your body to improve its general condition. No harm in trying, right?” Su Yayan knew the desires of Qin Xueru’s heart.
The soup may be effective, but it was not guaranteed. She did not want to give Qin Xueru false hope and later disappoint her. All she wanted to do now is to increase her health in general.
Qin Xueru realized that she was a tad bit over the line as soon as she finished asking that question, but when she heard Su Yayan’s explanation, she could not help but felt a pang of disappointment.
Besides, how could she expect a little girl to perform miracles that were deemed impossible by doctors? That was all on her.
The others knew the matter that was gnawing at her heart, and they did not know what to say.
Su Yayan saw that even if Qin Xueru was dejected, she was still obediently drinking the soup, she let out a huge sigh of relief and proceeded to dish out soup to the rest of the family.
“This Lotus Seeds, Red Dates, and Duck soup is best at reducing heatiness and improving sleep quality. All of you should drink up and have a good night’s rest. Especially grandpa that came all the way, I don’t think you’ve rested much, so you gotta make up for it tonight. Best if you can sleep in till noon tomorrow!”
Grandpa Cheng was of that age where he slept very little and even though he wanted to sleep more, he could not.
He chuckled after hearing what Su Yayan said. “Sure, grandpa will drink this soup and see if I could actually sleep in till noon tomorrow.”
He gulped a few mouthfuls of the soup with much joy. The warm soup slid smoothly down his throat to his belly, the warmth spread towards his entire body.
At the end of fall, to be able to drink such a belly-warming soup was such a relaxing and gratifying experience.
Grandpa Cheng finished the entire bowl of soup and felt his body warmed up. It had even improved his mood, only to think of something and his facial expression darkened and he harrumphed. “Don’t you think that because you’ve made all these dishes to suck up to grandpa that I would forget about the entire fiasco between you and that stupid Huo boy now.”
“I’m all ears, grandpa, what would make you feel better about us?”
Su Yayan used the term ‘us’ instead of ‘him’ and that clearly showed how determined she was.
Grandpa Cheng was both furious and curious about this man that could make his granddaughter unyieldingly loyal. “Have him come over sometime next week and we’ll see. You wanna marry him, but I haven’t even met him once! What nonsense!”
“Yes yes yes, I’ll contact him in a bit, I’ll have him put in effort in preparation to accept your judgment anytime any day.”
“That’s more like it.”
After dinner, Su Yayan accompanied Qin Xueru and Cheng Xiuqin as they drank some snow fungus dessert.
The fruits that were submerged in the milk had absorbed the fragrance of milk, making it more delectable. The crunch from the snow fungus was crisp and this dessert quickly enraptured the hearts of these two adults.
The men were feeling peckish after watching them, but since they were not big fans of desserts, and especially after such a big meal, they did not ask for some to try, and they did not think too much about it.
After dinner, Mr. Su and the rest still had unfinished business to attend while Grandpa Cheng and Qin Xueru felt a little worn out and went upstairs to rest.
Su Yayan saw that everyone had dispersed and rushed to her room. As soon as her door was closed, a familiar notifying ding rang from within her.
