Liu Wei listened to the long list of dishes and could not help but lick her lips. When she looked down and saw her son, she saw him impatiently staring at the shopkeeper as his throat moved like he was swallowing food.
Liu Wei let out a burst of laughter and pinched her son’s baby cheeks, “Hungry?”
Liu Xiao Li hugged his mothers’ arms, pouted and nodded. Super Hungry!
Liu Wei looked at Rong Leng. Rong Leng calmly let the shopkeeper serve the dishes that he recommended.
The shopkeeper swiftly agreed, and then personally sent the three people up into the side room on the second floor.
The four people walked at a normal speed, but they did not notice a young girl, with two high buns hairstyle, swaying as she walked towards their direction carrying a pot of wine.
The young girl was petite and hence she could not see her path as she carried the wine pot. As she came forward, she accidentally knocked against Liu Xiao Li who was walking closest to her.
Liu Xiao Li shouted “Ah”. Liu Wei was right beside him just then. She saw the young girl lose her grasp of that massive jar and head towards Xiao Li’s head. Her reflexes pulled her son into her embrace as she turned to block the impact with her back.
But the anticipated pain did not come. In that critical moment, Rong Leng swiftly pulled her towards his bosom and all that was left was a sound ‘crash’ as the jar smashed onto the floor. Luckily, no one was hurt.
“Ah, I am sorry, sorry ……” That young girl realized that she had nearly caused a big accident. She immediately apologised non-stop after she reacted. Her voice was weak and fragile, almost sounded like she was going to cry.
Liu Wei had been pushed into Rong Leng’s chest and Xiao Li was pushed into Liu Wei’s abdomen. Everyone had a weird stare as they saw how the three people were hugging tightly.
The first person who snapped back to senses was Liu Wei as the faint scent of a male made her nose itch and slightly uncomfortable. She slightly moved and noticed that her nose was on a button of Rong Leng’s clothes’ overlap. The button was furry and was irritating the tip of her nose.
She moved back and pushed herself away from the man’s embrace. However, her chin was propped the next second.
Rong Leng had her small face on his hands. He stared into her eyes and anxiously asked, “Are you hurt?”
They were already standing very closely. Now, their postures had become even more intimate. Liu Wei immediately felt uncomfortable. She shook her head and struggled to remove her lower jaw from his hands. She turned her sight and said, “I am alright.”
Rong Leng pursed his lips. He looked down, carried Xiao Li up gently and asked, “Are you injured?”
“No.” The little boy was obviously shocked by the whole incident too. When he was carried, his arms subconsciously extended and circled Rong Leng’s neck. His tiny head tightly leaned next to Rong Leng’s face.
After ensuring both mother and son were alright, Rong Leng then looked at the culprit of the whole incident.
That girl was aged about thirteen to fourteen. And because she had caused big trouble, she was pitiful and bewildered as she repeatedly apologised. She bowed down as if her whole waist was going to break.
The shopkeeper who was standing at the side furiously reprimanded, “Why did you not look where you are going? Banging and charging mindlessly! What will happen if you bang into someone with high status? Do you have a death wish?”
The young girl hurriedly and apologized in a panicked manner, “Sorry, sorry…… I, I really did not do it on purpose…… I, I……”
As she finished, her tears rolled down from her cheeks.
Rong Leng frowned. He could not stand wrongdoers who would only cry and sob the most.
Instead, Liu Wei was not as cold-blooded as him. As a fellow female, Liu Wei is usually much soft-hearted. She looked at her son again and confirmed that he was really alright. Then, she told the young girl, “It’s alright. Just be more careful when you walk next time.”
The moment that young girl heard that the other party would not pursue the matter, her tears immediately stopped. She raised her head to thank the other party. But when she saw the appearance of the graceful ‘gentleman’, she stared blankly.
