On New Year’s Eve, the streets were decorated red all over the place.
It was also rare for Wang Hui and Bai Jin to rest at home for a long period of time.
“Qian Qian.” Bai Jin came back from outside, saw Yu Qian playing with the dogs and called her gently.
“Uncle.” Yu Qian put down Hei Hei and walked towards Bai Jin.
Bai Jin handed a fruit basket from his hand to Yu Qian and said, “These are cherries, got this gift from a friend of mine. You can eat them.”
When it was only him and Bai Qiming at home, he would never bring anything back to eat. Anyway, there was an aunt at home who would make them food every day, plus Bai Qiming wasn’t good with food with heavy taste for his mouth.
But since Yu Qian came to their house, he often saw Yu Qian eating all kinds of things. Later, when others gave him fruit baskets or other snacks, he would always brought them back unconsciously.
Yu Qian took the fruit basket and said, “Thank you, uncle.”
Bai Jin responded with a smile, and then saw Yu Qian go to the kitchen to get a plate of cherries, then sealed the rest and put it in the refrigerator.
Seeing Yu Qian’s move, Bai Jin’s smile deepened. From the beginning, he loved You Qian, but now he really feels like he has his own daughter. After all, such a well-behaved and lovely daughter who will always takes care of her family, anyone who see her would feel warm.
Yu Qian washed the cherries and politely asked Bai Jin if he would like to eat them. After getting a no as answer, Yu Qian took one and took a bite without any worries as if she was free from any psychological burdens of life, and was instantly overwhelmed by the taste. The fruit meat is thick, juicy and super sweet!
Bai Qiming walked downstairs, and saw Yu Qian raising the cherries in her hands: “Brother Ming, do you want to eat the cherries brought back by Uncle Bai?”
“No.” Bai Qiming shook his head coldly, then walked to the sofa and sat opposite Bai’s father.
Well, this answer was expected. Yu Qian didn’t bother with it, and continued to chew on the cherries in her hand.
Over there, Yu Qian eating her cherries in peace gave of a relaxed picture, and on the other hand the Bai family’s father and son were sitting opposite each other gave of a cold picture.
Yu Qian glanced at the two father and son duo sitting on the sofa while eating. If it wasn’t for their long likeness, no one would think that the two were father and son just because of the indifference between them.
In the end, it was Wang Hui’s entrance that broke the strange atmosphere in the house.
When Yu Qian saw Wang Hui come in with several small and big bags, she quickly put down the cherries to pick up the things, Bai Jin also got up to help. The originally quiet house suddenly became lively.
Yu Qian was very attentive and washed another plate of cherries for her mother.
During the Chinese New Year in her previous years, the helpers of the Bai family used to took turns to change shifts to rest, so as to ensure that one person was always left in the Bai family, lest the father and son of the Bai family starve themselves to death.
But this year is different. Wang Hui gave all the helpers in the family a holiday yesterday, so now everything has to be done by them.
This is also the first year after Bai Jin and Wang Hui reorganized their families, which is of special significance.
Wang Hui took out the blessing characters and decals that she had bought, and instructed Bai Jin to post them.
Yu Qian and Wang Hui went to the kitchen to prepare dinner, and even Bai Qiming was assigned the task of preparing tableware.
The four of them were busy working together, and they managed to get the New Year’s Eve dinner out in peace.
Yu Qian looked at the food she and her mother made together, and felt very emotional. It was really not easy to cook. Fortunately, her mother still had a little self-awareness and bought a lot of cooked food.
Bai Jin and Wang Hui looked at each other and smiled, and then everyone toasted and drank.
After eating, Bai Jin called Bai Qiming and Yu Qian to the front, and gave each of them a red envelope.
Yu Qian thanked, her red envelope was relatively very thick, she can only feel that it does seem to be too thick from inside, she can’t tell how much is inside only by feeling, she couldn’t help but be eager to know how much Uncle Bai gave her, cough, She is not a money lover, she is just curious if the money given by her wealthy family as if was really in check.
Unfortunately, Yu Qian was not able to satisfy her curiosity immediately.
Yu Qian felt the phone vibrate in her pocket, she quickly took it out and took a look, and found that Jiang Zheng sent her a WeChat message.
【come out. 】
Yu Qian frowned at his WeChat message, what was Jiang Zheng doing, and why does he need to send her WeChat when they just live next door.
She complained in her heart, but Yu Qian still walked out of Bai’s house. As soon as she went out, she saw Jiang Zheng standing outside the door. Yu Qian opened the door and complained, “It’s only a few steps away, you can come in directly. What the need of sending me a WeChat message? ?”
Jiang Zheng didn’t reply, but there was a warm smile on the corner of his mouth, not like the usual wanton casualness, “Because I want to give you a gift, I should always be more serious.”
Yu Qian felt that Jiang Zheng’s expression was not right today, as if he had taken fake medicine, suddenly she felt a little nervous for a while, but why did he want to give her a gift?
Jiang Zheng looked at Yu Qian’s apprehensive look, and suddenly stretched out his hand behind his back, “For this new year, I bought you a new Mathematics book May 3rd.”
[ T/N:- What a truly fascinating gift……]
Yu Qian looked at the familiar purple cover, and suddenly heard the sound of something shattering in her heart.
She gritted her teeth and said: Thank you, but I already have a book of Maths 53, I don’t need another book! “
Jiang Zheng: “Write in the two books in exchange, don’t let your brother down on his good intentions.”
Jiang Zheng returned to his usual hippie smile.
Yu Qian was about to explode with anger. What kind of books should you read for the New Year’s Eve? May 3rd is the nightmare of all college entrance examination students!
[ T/N:- Probably every year the entrance exam in china is held on the same day i.e. May 3rd ]
Yu Qian turned around and walked towards her house in anger, Jiang Zheng stepped to catch up, and despite Yu Qian’s resistance, he shoved the book into her arms.
“Seeing how angry you are, then I’ll give you another gift.”
Jiang Zheng casually took out a cell phone cord from his pocket, stuffed it into Yu Qian’s pocket and said, “I’ll give you this cell phone cord, you should remember to use it well.”
Yu Qian rolled her eyes at Jiang Zheng and then returned to the house angrily. Jiang Zheng stood there, looked at Yu Qian’s back, and turned his back to his home with a chuckle.
Back in the room, Yu Qian threw the book on the bed as if venting her anger, and then she couldn’t help but be curious, and took out the mobile phone cord from her pocket. At the end of the black cord was a small red lucky bag, which felt soft when pinched. Plus it also had a small flower attached next to it.
It’s so pretty. Yu Qian couldn’t help picking up her cell phone. The cell phone was hanging on the cell phone rope was a rabbit pendant given to her by Wang Jiajia. Yu Qian glanced back and forth between the two cell phone ropes, and finally put the one that Jiang Zheng gave her.
After that, Yu Qian opened WeChat and video chatted with Wang Jiajia and the three of them. After chatting and chatting, she fell asleep until twelve o’clock, when the sound of fireworks in the sky woke her up.
Yu Qian got up in a daze, opened the curtains, wanted to see the scenery outside the house, to make a wish.
But just as she was rubbing her tired eyes, he suddenly felt that there was a looming figure appeared in the opposite window.
“My God!” Yu Qian was so frightened that she almost fell to the ground. Taking advantage of the faint light of the fireworks again, she realized that the figure opposite was Jiang Zheng.
Seeing that Yu Qian had been staring at his room, Jiang Zheng smiled and waved to her.
Yu Qian was so frightened that her hands and feet went weak and her heart started beating faster. Watching his silly behaviour, she couldn’t but wait to curse him. Does he wants to scare her to death by not sleeping or turning on the lights in the middle of the night?
Yu Qian lost her head in anger, picked up her phone and dialed Jiang Zheng’s number.
Jiang Zheng: “Hey, little fish…”
Yu Qian: “Jiang Zheng, are you ill? Standing at the window in the middle of the night is scary.”
Jiang Zheng: “…”
Jiang Zheng who was innocent was eventually pacified by Yu Qian’s scolding. He was the one who stood at the window first. He just wanted to see the scenery better without turning on the light. Who knew it would scare Yu Qian.
But they are spending the new year together, right?
Listening to Yu Qian’s energetic voice, Jiang Zheng used his eyes to depict the small figure on the opposite side. He really wanted to grow up quickly.
By the time Yu Qian hung up the phone, the fireworks had already been set off. Yu Qian failed to make a wish at twelve o’clock, and silently made a note to Jiang Zheng in her heart.
It wasn’t until the next day that Yu Qian remembered that she still had a red envelope that she hadn’t opened yet. She opened the red envelope given by Uncle Bai with great devotion and found a card from it.
A card! Yu Qian was instantly excited and could not wait to go to the ATM to check the balance.
Holding this card in her hand, Yu Qian felt happy for several days.
Chinese New Year is all about visiting relatives and friends, or going on a family trip.
But Yu Qian’s relatives and friends are all in Jiangshi, and she doesn’t want to travel far, so she spends the whole Spring Festival as a salted fish in the Bai family. Occasionally, Lin Niannian or Jiang Zheng would drag him out to play.
