Lin Yuan was looking at the incomparably lovely Qiu Wanxi, thinking where to take her for dinner. However, Qiu Wanxi spoke suddenly.
“Then… I want to take you to a place, is it okay?” Qiu Wanxi asked gently and cautiously.
“Of course,” Lin Yuan replied with a smile.
Looking at Lin Yuan’s smile, Qiu Wanxi’s throbbing heart relaxed a lot.
Lin Yuan reached a neat-clean noodle shop following behind Qiu Wanxi.
Yes, that’s right, Lin Yuan evaluated the noodle shop as somewhat clean. It was just a bit better in terms of hygiene than those street stalls with low prices and no permanent base.
“Boss, I want two bowls of dragon noodles, one bowl with two eggs, and the other bowl with none.” Qiu Wanxi glanced nervously at Lin Yuan sitting on an ordinary chair, rushed to the kitchen, and said to the proprietor.
She took out a crumpled fifty yuan from her pocket while talking. Lin Yuan observed everything but did not say a word. Qiu Wanxi soon returned and took a seat.
She blinked her big eyes only to see Lin Yuan staring at her with a smile but not speaking a word.
Although she felt quite embarrassed, she still explained, “My mother taught me to get along with someone you need to reciprocate.”
“You invited me to eat delicious food, and thus I wanted to invite you to a meal too…”
“Although it might not be too tasty…but… but I can only afford this…”
Qiu Wanxi looked at Lin Yuan shyly, her eyes were brimming with sincerity and embarrassment.
“It’s okay. I will like the food of anywhere you invite me to.” Lin Yuan touched her humble face, once again.
Although he spoke a cliché and embarrassing line from Earth, when Qiu Wanxi heard it, she felt like she had eaten honey. She smiled happily and adorably. Her two big eyes resembled a crescent moon.
Lin Yuan knew that Qiu Wanxi had spoken the truth.
Qiu Wanxi had only 50 yuan on her body.
In the novel, Qiu Wanxi was diagnosed with liver disease when she was merely six years old, and her treatment cost was several million yuan. It was an astronomical amount for an ordinary family. What’s even tragic is that the parents who worked hard to save money for her treatment had a car accident soon, leaving her all alone in the world.
She grew up alone with the pension money, those hard challenges allowed her to mature, and she started working part-time. She often encountered matters like wearing a costume under high temperatures in her part-time jobs.
The money earned from part-time jobs is not nearly enough to cure her disease, but she can eke out her life for a while longer.
Despite having so many difficulties in her life, Qiu Wanxi still strongly desired to live. She was a girl brimming with hope for the future.
In the original novel, she became the second heroine under the protagonist’s halo. Her description was not in detail. After all, the urban romance writer foolishly wrote her without using his brain.
But after he got along with her today, Lin Yuan felt that the girl was brimming with hope, and unexpectedly adorable.
“This bowl is for you,” Qiu Wanxi pushed the dragon noodles with two eggs to Lin Yuan and kept the bowl with none for herself.
Qiu Wanxi was initially very worried. She was afraid that Lin Yuan, born in a life of luxury and extravagance, would drop the chopsticks and leave decisively. However, she saw that Lin Yuan had started eating with a smile.
She also smiled sweetly and began to eat. Although the meal cost half of her monthly food costs.
“I thought you wouldn’t eat.” After eating, as Lin Yuan and Qiu Wanxi walked on the street, Qiu Wanxi said meekly.
“It is impossible; I like everything you invite me to.” Lin Yuan laughed.
“However, if I didn’t eat, what would you have done?” Lin Yuan asked.
Qiu Wanxi blinked her eyes and shook her head, “No… I don’t know…”
“Maybe… I will cry alone and finish eating…” She thought about it and said.
“Stupid,” Lin Yuan smiled and stoked Qiu Wanxi’s head.
