At his words, Yan Mu revealed an “I knew it” smile, and eagerly took the plate of dumplings to cook them.
Yu Yuan silently watched Yan Mu’s back, then pulled out what he’d been weaving just now and looked at it for a while.
He looked like he couldn’t make up his mind, or perhaps he was just too timid.
Either way, Yu Yuan silently tucked the object back into his sleeve again.
Yan Mu hadn’t eaten rice for a long time, so she was greedy for it once the dumplings were served.
There was still another pot in the kitchen, so Father Yan stayed there to guard it, worried that she’d eat too much and get indigestion.
He specially instructed Yu Yuan to keep an eye on her to prevent her from sneakily eating them.
Yan Mu couldn’t stand her cravings.
She looked left and right, then tried to sneakily take a dumpling while Yu Yuan wasn’t paying attention.
Her naughty hand had just reached out when she jumped from the scalding temperature of the dumplings.
“Hot, hot, hot!” Yan Mu’s body was extremely afraid of pain, so just like that, she was actually brought to tears from the burn.
Yu Yuan was shocked and he hurriedly examined Yan Mu’s injury.
She was in pain and instinctively put her finger in her mouth.
“Let me have a look.” Yu Yuan frowned.
The girl was looking at Yu Yuan with tearful eyes but she obediently extended her hand over.
Yan Mu’s fingers were slender and her skin was pale.
The pink nails on her fingers were like flower petals, cute and delicate.
But only her index finger, as it had just been taken out of her mouth, was coated with a sheen of moisture.
Yu Yuan’s eyes darkened and his hand that held Yan Mu’s slightly tightened.
“Yu Yuan?” The girl’s eyes were hazy with tears.
Yu Yuan looked up and his gaze swept over the girl’s slightly parted red lips.
His heartbeat inexplicably quickened.
Yu Yuan lowered his eyes, calmed his state of mind, then smoothly pulled Yan Mu’s hand over.
Before Yan Mu could react, Yu Yuan’s fingers had domineeringly occupied the gaps between her fingers, interlocking in a manner that didn’t allow rejection.
The teenager’s hand was covered in a thin layer of calluses, a little rough to touch, but that surprisingly gave her a sense of security.
Yan Mu inexplicably felt like her son had grown up.
She felt extremely relieved.
“There isn’t a blister, it’s just slightly red from the burn.
Let me fetch you a basin of well water for you to soak your finger in,” Yu Yuan nonchalantly said.
“Alright.” Yan Mu obediently nodded and let him pull her hand to soak her finger in the water.
Seeing that the girl didn’t show any obvious signs of rejection, Yu Yuan secretly sighed in relief.
When Father Yan brought out the second plate of dumplings, the first plate had almost cooled down.
“Yu Yuan, Yan Mu didn’t secretly eat them, right?” Father Yan casually asked.
At his words, Yan Mu froze, and she looked at Yu Yuan pleadingly.
Yu Yuan pretended to think back while his hands were unwrapping the dumpling, acting like he didn’t see her gaze.
After sensing that Yan Mu’s gaze was getting hotter and hotter, Yu Yuan then slowly said, “She didn’t.”
Yan Mu sighed in relief and glared at Yu Yuan.
An unnoticeably slight curve appeared on his lips and he placed the freshly unwrapped dumpling into her bowl.
Seeing Yu Yuan’s attentive service, Yan Mu’s anger suddenly dissipated.
She picked up her chopsticks and started to eat in small bites.
Father Yan nodded in satisfaction and said, “I’ve placed a salted egg yolk in one of the dumplings, let’s see who gets to eat it.”
“I heard whoever gets to eat it will have a lucky year ahead,” Father Yan added.
Just as he finished speaking, Yan Mu let out an “Eh.”
She held up her chopsticks to reveal a yellow salted egg yolk stuck on the tip.
Father Yan didn’t seem to expect that it would be found so quickly, as he looked a little confused.
Conversely, Yu Yuan only raised his eyelids and continued to unwrap another dumpling.
This next unwrapped dumpling he gave to Father Yan, only then did he start to unwrap his own.
Father Yan scratched his head and thanked him.
“Daughter, hurry up and eat the egg yolk for a good omen,” Father Yan said as he ate the dumpling.
Yan Mu thought for a while, then used her chopsticks to divide the egg yolk into three.
Then, she gave one piece each to Yu Yuan and Father Yan.
“Let’s eat together.” The girl’s smiling eyes were curved.
“Silly girl.” Father Yan happily ate the egg yolk in one bite.
Yu Yuan couldn’t help but touch the item in his sleeve.
Seeing Yan Mu eat her egg yolk, he followed and started to eat.
Although Yan Mu was greedy, her digestive system wasn’t good and she couldn’t eat much, so she only ate one.
After she finished hers, she could only watch Yu Yuan and Father Yan eat.
Yu Yuan couldn’t stand her stare, and while Father Yan wasn’t paying attention, he placed a piece of lean meat into Yan Mu’s bowl which she hurriedly ate.
She ate happily, and Yu Yuan felt his mood improve as he watched from the side.
Seeing Yan Mu finish her food, Yu Yuan touched the item in his sleeve.
He hesitated repeatedly before he finally whispered, “……I want to give you something.”
The author has something to say:
Yan Mu’s brain circuit is never on the same wavelength as Yu Yuan……orz3
