Xian’er burst into tears and her tears kept falling: “But why they didn’t come to Xian’er before? Xian’er used to want them to take me home every day, but they didn’t come. I thought they don’t want Xian’er anymore.”
Bai Zhi took out her handkerchief and wiped Xianer’s tears. Xianer’s appearance today was very different from when they saw her for the first time. Her small face now looked tender and cute. So when she cried, she looked very pitiful: “Xian’er, it’s not that your father and mother don’t you want anymore. They have been looking for you, but they don’t know where you are. Look, didn’t your brother came to pick you up?”
Xian’er was luckier than her. Her family didn’t abandon her but lost her temporarily. Now, they will reunite again.
Xian’er got into Bai Zhi’s arms and cried: “I don’t care, I don’t want to go home. I will stay here, I like you, I like it here.” Everyone here was very kind to her. They play with her even though she caused trouble at times. No one forced her to learn rules, nor kept her inside the house all day long.
Bai Zhi patted her on the back: “Sister promised you that she would go to the capital and visit you in the future, okay?”
Xian’er had been crying for a long time, her eyes swelled and her voice became hoarse: “You shouldn’t lie to me.”
Bai Zhi touched her head: “Sister never lies. If sister said it, she will definitely do it.”
“Can I leave tomorrow?” Xian’er made her last request. Who can refuse such a request?
Bai Zhi said to Ke Xicheng sincerely: “Ke Gongzi, it’s better if you will stay in the Qingfeng Inn in the town tonight. I will personally send Xian’er tomorrow to you.”
Ke Xicheng couldn’t bear to see his sister too sad, so he agreed. Besides, the time was not too early, so he also prefers to stay.
He cupped his hand and bowed his head to Bai Zhi: “Miss Bai, I don’t know how to thank you for your kindness. Our Ke Family will surely pay this debt to you in the future, just say a word.”
Bai Zhi waved her hand: “You don’t need to be so polite. I and Xian’er are fated to meet each other. I just did what I should do. Our family likes Xian’er very much and treats her like family.”
If others will say such a thing, Ke Xicheng will surely be unhappy. Their Ke family was not ordinary. A little girl from the mountain village, what is her qualification to take the Ke family’s daughter like her own family?
But this Bai Zhi in front of him, when he faced her, he didn’t feel even a bit of contempt. Although she only looked like a 13-year-old girl, with her calm behavior, no young ladies he met can compare to her.
Ke Xicheng left with his men, and Meng Nan also let his followers leave. However, he and Jin Shiwei didn’t go.
“You’re not going?” Bai Zhi raised an eyebrow.
Meng Nan stared at Bai Zhi’s face. Her little blushing face due to the cold winter seemed to have become plump more than before, which made him want to pinch her cute little cheeks.
Meng Nan touched his belly and said: “I haven’t eaten lunch yet. We’ve come from afar, but you just want us to leave without feeding us? I won’t go!”
Bai Zhi smiled and shook her head: “I can’t win you. Come in, I’ll make dumplings today.”
As soon as Jin Shiwei heard the word ‘dumplings’, he couldn’t close his mouth anymore: “Zhi’er, you have to teach me how to make dumplings today. When I learn how to make it, I’ll make dumplings for gongzi so that he won’t talk about eating dumplings all day long.”
Meng Nan softly sneered and pushed Jin Shiwei away: “I think it’s you who wants to eat dumplings, but it’s good if you can learn how to make it. Not only our Meng Family can save food but also money. It’s like killing two birds with one stone.”
