“It’s very delicious. Looks like you have a talent for this!” Qiao Mei praised him with a smile.
Xia Zhe was relieved to see Qiao Mei eating the food heartily.
After dinner, they cleaned up the house and then went to bed.
For a few days, no one came to look for them. All their relatives and friends seemed to have left.
“What other fun places are there in the capital?” Qiao Mei asked Xia Zhe as she ate grapes.
“There’s nothing really fun to do in the capital. Do you feel bored at home?” Xia Zhe said as he looked at Qiao Mei.
“Not really. I just want to walk around more and look around,” Qiao Mei said.
“If you really want to go somewhere, we can take the bus. When you see someplace where you like the scenery, we can get off the bus and walk around,” Xia Zhe said.
She thought that this was a good idea. Most of the sightseeing venues were already reachable by public buses. One could just get off at any station one wanted.
“That’s a good idea. Let’s go after a couple of days when the weather is good,” Qiao Mei said.
For the past few days, Grandpa Zhou had gone off to a friend’s house, leaving only Xia Zhe and her at home. On most days, they would go out for a walk and then return to cook at home. It was a boring life.
The strange thing was that the Cao family had become much more well-behaved recently. There were no more knocking sounds at night for about two to three days.
“Why do you think the Cao family has been quiet recently?” Qiao Mei asked curiously.
“I’m guessing they might be busy with work recently and don’t have time to come over. Besides, maybe there’s really nothing over there?” Xia Zhe said.
“Let’s wait a little longer. There’s still some time before they need to hand over the house to us. Let’s see what else they can do during this period of time.” Qiao Mei felt very excited just thinking about it.
Just when she said that no one had visited them recently, someone came knocking on the door.
“Knock, knock, knock!”
“Who is it?” Qiao Mei asked.
“Sister-in-law, it’s me,” Xia He said.
Qiao Mei hurriedly gestured for Xia Zhe to open the door. Xia Zhe opened the door gently and saw Xia He standing at the door with a pile of things. Other than fruits suitable for pregnant women to eat, there were also many children’s stuff.
“I just came back from the mall and saw a store selling baby products. I thought that your baby would be born soon, so I bought some things. I’m not sure if you’re able to use them,” Xia He said.
“Elder sister, it’s been only slightly more than three months. There are still six months to go before I give birth,” Qiao Mei said laughingly.
“Six months will be over in just a blink of an eye. I don’t know if you’re having a boy or a girl, so I bought one set each. When the time comes, you can use whatever you want,” Xia He said as she placed the things in the house.
Qiao Mei was very moved by this gesture. Only she herself knew that she was pregnant with a pair of twins, so Xia He had really made the right choice in buying baby products for both boy and girl.
“Thank you, elder sister. By the way, has Kong Li caused any trouble recently?” Qiao Mei asked.
When Xia He heard this question, her face fell immediately. Ever since the incident the last time, Kong Li had indeed behaved herself for a day. However, she immediately asked those children over for dinner the next day.
Those children were very hard to deal with as all of them were very quick-witted. They did not really cause trouble, they were just greedy. In actual fact, the children were more discerning than Kong Li.
“Kong Li keeps asking those children to come over to the house. I can’t handle it and can only let them come by to eat,” Xia He said helplessly.
“So that means these few children have eaten a lot these few days?” Qiao Mei asked.
Xia He nodded. The children were all boys going through puberty and they could eat a lot. In addition, Kong Li could eat a lot too. She must eat two roast ducks every day.
“What can I do, except to spend money to buy some peace and quiet.” Xia He sat at the side in a daze.
“When is Kong Lu coming?” Xia Zhe asked with a frown.
“I gave him a call yesterday, but he just hung up. He didn’t even call me back. I don’t think he will come to the capital,” Xia He said.
