“Just go! Hurry!”
“But you…” Lu Yan was still in shock.
“I’m fine, you’ll protect me, won’t you?” Huo Mian chuckled and began pushing Lu Yan out the door before she could respond.
She didn’t want Lu Yan to leave the house in the middle of the night. Although Lu Yan was good at fighting and would never be bullied, she didn’t want her sister to have to fight off everyone she sees.
Plus, she felt bad for her sister, so Huo Mian decided to go with her.
Just like that, Lu Yan and Huo Mian left South Hill Manor in the middle of the night. No one knew about it, except for Qin Chu. No matter how good his wife’s concoction was, Qin Chu was still a light sleeper and woke up as soon as he felt Huo Mian leave their bed.
“Follow the Young Madam and protect them.”
Qin Chu knew Huo Mian didn’t need protection when she was with Lu Yan, but he still told his people to follow them to be safe.
Obviously, Lu Yan quickly realized that Qin Chu had sent someone, but she didn’t say anything. After all, them leaving in the middle of the night wasn’t the best thing to do.
“Sis, what do you want to eat?”
“I’m fine with anything, I’m not a picky eater.”
“As long as we don’t get Ah-Xin’s Ramen, I really don’t like the food there,” Lu Yan said truthfully.
“Haha, to be honest, I’m sick of the food there as well. Your brother-in-law just likes to eat there to reminisce.”
“I know, I know, can you not flaunt your relationship for one second?” Lu Yan laughed as she tapped her fingers against the steering wheel.
In the end, they agreed to stop by a wonton restaurant.
Since it was past midnight, the streets were dark and quiet. Plus, it was really cold during the winter and a lot of people avoided the weather by going down south during the winter.
Northern China was not as populated compared to the rest of the country. A report once indicated that the three provinces in Northern China added up was still less than one of the provinces in the south.
“Hi, what would you like to order?” The owner of the restaurant was a man in his sixties.
“Sir, you only sell wontons, right?”
“We also sell wonton noodle soup.”
“Forget it, no noodles, people! We’ll have two bowls of wontons please; shrimp for my sister and pork and cabbage for me.”
“Okay, won’t be long.”
Then, Lu Yan and Huo Mian sat down on one of the clean tables in the corner.
“You don’t come out to eat at this hour a lot, do you?”
“Mhm, my husband and I used to come out when I’m not pregnant, but these days he’s very strict.” Huo Mian smiled happily at the thought of Qin Chu.
“Sis, were you happy growing up? Is your adoptive mother good to you?” Lu Yan felt like she could only talk about family stuff when she was alone with her sister.
“She is. Her temper isn’t the best, but she’s been great to me. I don’t think she knows that I’m not her biological daughter.”
“I heard that her child was swapped with you. She doesn’t know her biological daughter is dead, right?”
“Mhm.” Huo Mian nodded.
“I was so happy when I learned that I had a sister. It was a great feeling.”
“Silly girl.” Huo Mian looked at Lu Yan with sisterly love.
“It really sucks that my dad wouldn’t let me come and find you… He didn’t want to cause you trouble. Although things are out in the open now and you’re in trouble, at least we’re together, right? Sis, I used to have this picture in my head of how we would have late-night snacks and gossip together… I just want us to be like all the other siblings in the world.”
“Yan, my dream used to be becoming a doctor and being a good doctor, but it’s not anymore. Do you know what my biggest dream is right now?”
