Unrequited Love 暗恋橘生淮南 Chapter 11.1


Chapter 11.1 - Caught off guard (1)

    Unexpectedly, Sheng Huainan raised his head to look at the menu on the wall after he finished speaking, his sight came into contact with Luo Zhi's forced smile.

    It just so happened that a large row of seats next to Jake was vacant. The boy who shouted just now sat there with a girl in pink clothes and turned around to greet the other two couples. Only Sheng Huainan stood there and looked at Luo Zhi with a smile.

    "What a coincidence." He walked over.

    "Yes. I brought my younger brother and sister to play."

    "I’m here with our dormitory’s second brother, fifth brother, sixth brother and their girlfriends, and they dragged me here. Where are your brother and sister sitting?"

    Luo Zhi pointed over and found that the boy who just yelled was talking to Jake.

    At this time it was her turn to order food. After she ordered, she returned to her seat with the dinner plate, and Sheng Huainan followed her with a cone ice cream in each hand.

    "Here, your ice cream." The two children glanced at Luo Zhi, and Luo Zhi nodded, so they took it, raised their heads and nodded to Sheng Huainan, "Thank you, brother."

    "You cannot eat." one of the brothers snatched the cone that Sheng Huainan handed to Jake, "I ask what is your name, why don't you speak? I won't give it to you if you don't tell me."

    Luo Zhi was helpless, using this method to deal with a 5-year-old. One is a fifth grade, another sophomore, what are they doing?

    "Jake," Jake replied coldly.

    "Why not say earlier, Jack, right." The boy grinned and passed the ice cream.

    "Jake." Jake still had the same expression coldly, turning his face away from him once he passed the ice cream.

    "What?" The boy was embarrassed. The girlfriend behind him smiled stiffly and she opened her mouth and wanted to say something, but she remained silent for a long time.

    "Jake, his name is Jake," Luo Zhi divided the contents of the dinner plate into two parts and put them in front of the two children respectively. "He's gauche, don't mind." She smiled comfortingly at him.

    "Who is gauche?!" Jake suddenly raised his head and stared at Luo Zhi with a flushed face.

    "You." Luo Zhi smiled at the corner of her mouth and looked at him coldly, holding his arms. Who said the child is the winner, just after a few seconds he already lowered his head and mumbled.

    "Eat first, don't be self-willed, and later I will bring you to see the big balloon on the water that you saw on the road."

    Jake didn't speak but still picked up the fork gauchely.

    Luo Zhi has been watching him fight with his Filipino maid and his sister with cold eyes for the past six months. He has mastered countless tricks and it is naturally easy to subdue him. After all, the best way to deal with a child is not to pester him.

    Sheng Huainan interrupted in due course.

    "By the way, let me introduce, this is Luo Zhi, my high school classmate, now in the School of Economics at our school. This is my dormitory's second brother, fifth brother and sixth brothers and their girlfriends. Three long-distance relationships, they take advantage of me coming to Beijing to play during the holiday and come to Happy Valley together."

    "What a coincidence ." Luo Zhi smiled.

    There were two children between her seat and them, but Luo Zhi faintly heard that several people gathered together to tease Huainan and Luo Zhi. As long as they see a single man and a woman say a few words, everyone can laugh ambiguously—no malice, just warming up and searching for topics.

    Tiffany's mouth was never idle during the meal. Luo Zhi responded to her bizarre questions while always remembering to pull Jake into the topic.

    Luo Zhi faintly felt that Jake had always been unfavored at home.

    "Why are your younger siblings in Beijing?" Suddenly, Sheng Huainan stood behind her.

    "Actually I am their tutor. It is my part-time job."

    Sheng Huainan was very curious, "Oh, what do you teach?"

    "English, math, violin, storytelling, memorizing Tang poetry, and admiring Tiffany's private wardrobe fashion show and...walking the dog." Luo Zhi felt a little embarrassed when she said that later. .

    He smiled, eyes gleaming at her, she wiped the corners of her mouth with a tissue in a panic, is there food on her face?

    "I’ll play together with you guys in the afternoon, do you mind?"

    Luo Zhi looked at the other six noisy people, frowned slightly, "I'm afraid I won't be able to play together."

    "I mean, only me, and you, together with them. "

    She looked up at him in surprise, Sheng Huainan spread his hands, and said helplessly, "It's six plus one, it's more painful than I thought."

    Luo Zhi smiled, her eyes narrowed into crescents, and she lowered her head to ask Jake, "In the afternoon. Let's take this brother along, okay?"

    At the moment Jake turned to look at him, Sheng Huainan spread a harmless smile that made people feel the spring breeze, Luo Zhi also looked a little dazed. Jake did not refuse, he tugged and nodded and said, "No opinion." 

Saying goodbye to the gossiping people, Sheng Huainan asked Tiffany with his hands in his pockets while smiling, "Where do you want to go next?"

    Tiffany buried her little head on the map. After a while, she raised her head and said loudly, “We have not played Flying Ants yet, there were too many people in line just now.”

    Luo Zhi raised her head to look at the turntable with many small chairs hanging on, and she was relieved, very good, this allows adults to play too.

    However, Jake, who never spoke, suddenly said stubbornly, "Childish. I want to play the sun god car." The sun god car, Luo Zhi smiled, the one which was always filled with screams of tourists swinging high in the sky like a big frisbee.

    Tiffany screamed, "No, brother that is so scary"

    "You are so annoying. You play yours, I play mine."

    The scene froze suddenly, Tiffany's mouth formed into a line, and the golden peas fell one by one.

    "I knew my brother didn't want me."

    Turned around and ran away.

    Not again... Luo Zhi immediately raised her leg to chase, although her head was still dizzy. 

What a thunderous scene.
