“Your brother-in-law and I work outside during the day.
We won’t stay at home for long.
Even if you go back to stay, it won’t affect you.
” Lu Yuxi lowered her head and swiped her phone.
“You should know very well why I moved out, right? Don’t use these excuses anymore.
Xu Tian tugged at Lu Yuxi’s hand and dragged her into the kitchen.
“Sister Lu, let’s go see what Brother is cooking.
” After Xu Le arranged all the vegetables and meat in the fridge, there were all sorts of snacks and drinks on the table.
When he saw Xu Tian enter, he immediately covered the chocolate on the side.
“What’s wrong? Do you want supper?” Xu Tian’s eyes were sharp.
“Chocolate!” “No, eating this at night will cause tooth decay.
” “Then I’ll brush my teeth after eating.
” Xu Tian hugged his thigh and blinked her innocent eyes.
” Xu Le did not even dare to lower her head, afraid that he would melt and give in under her gaze.
He insisted, “No means no.
Why is Ms.
Li here tonight?” .
“Anyway, she didn’t specially come for me.
” Lu Yuxi crossed her arms and looked downcast.
She said, “I don’t have the appetite to eat anymore.
If you want to eat, cook for yourself.
” As for the conflict between family members, Xu Le had never experienced it before and didn’t know how to persuade them.
He only replied with an “oh”.
Then he carried Xu Tian out of the kitchen and into the living room.
Lu Yuxi went back to her room.
Li saw him, she stood up and said in a hurry, “Congratulations.
I saw you win another award for the competition.
You’re really impressive.
But at your age, aren’t you going to continue studying in school?” Continue reading on MYB0XN0 V EL.
COM Xu Le shook his head and found a random excuse.
“My parents will arrange it for me in the future.
Li, it’s almost 12 o’clock.
Is there anything urgent?” “Indeed.
Li said, “Xu Tian doesn’t need to go to class tomorrow morning.
The school is holding a charity sale in the afternoon as a parent-child activity.
They want the parents to make some snacks that the child likes and then sell them at the school.
The money will ultimately be donated to poor people in the area to buy books.
” “I thought that your cooking skills are pretty good, so I would like to ask you to represent our class and fight for an award.
” Before Xu Le could answer, Lu Yuxi’s door opened.
She stood out and said, “Sister, don’t be too selfish.
Even if your class wins an award, it’s only a few hundred yuan.
If Xu Le doesn’t open his store, he’ll lose a few thousand yuan…” “Be quiet first.
” Xu Le immediately told her not to say anything.
Otherwise, if they were to quarrel later, it would be a headache.
He said, “I agree to it, Ms.
Li, because I want to spend more time with my sister.
” After all, all the parents would be present at such a large-scale parent-child event.
If Xu Tian did not have any relatives to accompany her, she might be mocked by the children.
Xu Le insisted on participating because of this.
Li’s expression turned ugly after Lu Yuxi saw through her thoughts, but she was not embarrassed.
She simply said nothing and turned to leave after glancing at Lu Yuxi.
When the door was completely closed, Lu Yuxi squatted down and wailed loudly.
Xu Tian was stunned and hurriedly went over to comfort her.
“Sister Lu, what’s wrong with you? If you have any grievances, tell us.
If anyone bullies you, my brother will definitely beat them so that they won’t come back!” In Xu Tian’s eyes, Xu Le was simply omnipotent! Lu Yuxi waved her hand, not wanting to be disturbed.
She turned around and went back to her room, saying that she was going to sleep.
Xu Tian lay on the bed, still very worried about her.
“Brother, why do you think people cry?” Xu Le was stunned by her mature question.
He pinched the tip of her nose and said, “Quickly go to sleep.
I’ll accompany you to the school for the charity sale tomorrow.
Can you bring Sister Lu along to play games with you?” “Okay.
” Xu Tian asked in her babyish voice, “What delicious food are you making tomorrow? I want to eat cola chicken wings, wolf fang potatoes, and…” As she spoke, her voice softened and she gradually closed her eyes to sleep.
Xu Le picked up his phone and sent a WeChat message to Lu Yuxi.
– Are you okay? – I’m fine now.
I lost my composure just now.
– Do you want to go for the sale tomorrow? – Yeah.
– What snacks do you want to eat? I’ll make them for you.
– Chicken feet.
I want to chew on chicken feet.
– Sure, anyway I bought it today.
Lu Yuxi sent a smiling emoji and said, “Goodnight.
” Xu Le couldn’t sleep, so he went into the system and browsed through the list of home-cooked dishes from before.
There were all kinds of dishes that suited the taste of the masses and were good choices to be added to the menu.
As for the next day’s charity sale, not only did it have to suit the taste of children, it also couldn’t be food that were difficult to swallow like jelly and bones.
After Xu Le chose for a while, he finally decided and started practicing in the system.
The next morning, Lu Yuxi was woken up by the noise in the kitchen.
She was wearing a pair of slippers and her hair was messy.
Her eyes were slightly swollen from crying and her lips were dry and red.
Xu Le was using a sharp razor to ‘fight’ with the skipjack tuna in his hand.
He turned around and saw her.
He was stunned for a moment.
“Your pajamas are so childish.
” “Pfft! This is called cute, do you understand?” Lu Yuxi bickered with him and her mood obviously improved.
She said, “People buy skipjack tuna that has been processed.
Why is it like the Japanese restaurant here? This kind of thing needs to be specially shaved with a paring knife.
Ordinary knives can’t cut it.
” “Ah? When I was cleaning the cabinet, I saw this.
It should be left behind by my dad, probably because he was planning to cook oden.
I originally wanted to cook spicy hotpot, but I was worried that many children can’t eat spicy food.
Go wash your face and come help me.
” “Boss, I want to apply for overtime pay.
” Xu Le almost laughed out of anger.
He turned around and looked at her speechlessly.
Come over and help first.
I will definitely pay you for overtime.
” Lu Yuxi went to wash up happily and helped Xu Tian, who had just woken up, comb her hair and change her clothes.
She did not need to wear the kindergarten uniform that day.
Xu Tian took out a white lace tutu skirt and put it on.
She spun around happily and said, “Sister Lu, do I look like a white lotus?” This was not a compliment.
Lu Yuxi suppressed her laughter and corrected her.
“You’re like a cute…” Before she could say finish saying ‘bunny’, Xu Le, who was wearing a pair of disposable gloves, poked his head out.
He looked at Xu Tian and said, “You look like a big goose.
” “Hmph!” Xu Tian angrily put her hands on her hips.
“Bad brother, I’m not going to be friends with you anymore! I’m not a big white goose!” Xu Le deliberately teased her and said mischievously, “Yes, yes, yes.
Tian Tian is a swan, but she looked like an ugly duckling when she was young.
” “Wow! Sister Lu, did you see him bullying me?” “Mm.
” Lu Yuxi squatted down and smiled.
Outside the window, Xu Le was packing the ingredients and cooking.
Lu Yuxi caressed Xu Tian’s hair and felt extremely warm.
The emptiness in her heart was also filled up.
