Chapter 3 - Cute Little Dumpling
translator: Oyen  editor: Larkspur

Lin Qingqing adapted to ‘life after-five-years’ in a short time and became familiar with the environment.

Lin Zhenzhen told her that her life had been very bad before that, and she’d been muddle-headed all the time. Lin Qingqing probably guessed it, but she could not understand it. If she could accept the worst things now, why couldn't she accept it when she suffered these things five years ago?

But it didn't matter anymore. What she needed to do now was adjust her condition as soon as possible.

After a short adjustment, she began to help her sister with work. Speaking of which, her sister had also paid a lot for the restaurant. When their mother passed away, Lin Zhenzhen had been busy with the judicial examination. She was a top law student. However, upon their mother’s passing, she took over the family restaurant. The restaurant was run by their grandfather and was of special significance to their family. She (LZZ) didn't want the restaurant to be closed at her hands, so she gave up her ideal and took over the job.

Her sister had sacrificed so much, so what face did she have to continue being ignorant?

No matter how she used to be, she must now cheer up. On the one hand, she could help her sister, and on the other, she could rest assured when she got better.

Peace Restaurant had a good geographical location with several universities around it. Off late, the takeout industry had developed unprecedentedly. There were especially many people ordering takeouts when they came to the restaurant. Sometimes, when the takeout boy couldn’t deliver, Lin Qingqing would help out.

She was mainly responsible for the Beicheng Aeronautical Engineering Institute across the restaurant. Every morning, she would first help her sister with the restaurant affairs and then manage the accounts. In the afternoon, she would go out to deliver. Her days were very fulfilling.

Almost all the students in the university ordered takeouts, and almost all the delivery locations were in the student dormitory. So in the afternoon, she basically ran back and forth from the restaurant to the student dormitory at 2:00 p.m.

En route to the student dormitory was a kindergarten. On that day, Lin Qingqing by chance glanced towards the kindergarten when she passed by on her scooter with the takeout. There, she saw a child staring at her from behind the iron railing of the school.

It was a little boy. He was wearing a long, white down jacket, its hem almost reaching his ankles. Inside it was a black turtleneck sweater. It looked cool and handsome, but because he was small, this one exuded a cute feeling.

He was white and tender and with large, watery eyes he stared at her. She felt as if she had been caught, and could not help looking more.

Such a distraction, she didn't notice the big pit on the road; the scooter drove right through and shook for a moment. She wasn’t able to hold it steady, and as such both the scooter and she fell down.

Really... Embarrassing!

It was not a heavy fall. She hurriedly sat up and did a quick check on the takeaway. Fortunately, it was okay. She was just about to get up with a sigh of relief when she heard a jog. Lin Qingqing subconsciously looked up and saw the child who had just been staring at her running out of the kindergarten. His little face was worried. Perhaps, blown by the cold wind, his cheeks were dyed with a small flush of red that made him even lovelier.

He stood beside her but did not approach too closely, keeping within a certain distance. His little eyebrows rose up gently as he asked, "Are you all right, Auntie?"

The kindergarten teacher anxiously ran after him and said, "Xiao Yuan, you can't run out until your dad comes to pick you up."

The child named Xiao Yuan pointed to Lin Qingqing who was still squatting on the ground and said, "Auntie is injured."

The kindergarten teacher held Lin Qingqing up and asked with concern, "Are you all right?"

Lin Qingqing laughed and said, "It's all right, it's just a scratch."

"Auntie, please buy a band-aid later. Don't let the wound get wet." The little boy added.

Lin Qingqing did not expect a child to still understand these. Since she was in a hurry to deliver things, she was not able to stay any longer. She only said to him, "Auntie will remember, thank you." Then, she rode away on her scooter.


On her way back, Lin Qingqing glanced again at the kindergarten subconsciously when she thought of the little boy she had just met. To her surprise, the little boy was still standing inside the railing, still looking at her with big eyes.

It's so late. Haven't his parents come to pick him up yet?

One didn’t know if it was because of the pair of bright, watery eyes, but when he looked at people, she always felt his eyes displayed some kind of expectation that also showed a kind of pitiful taste.

Lin Qingqing stopped, parked at the curbside, and went to the railings to squat down. Before she could speak, the little boy took a band-aid from his bag and rushed to her. "Auntie, please stretch out your hand and I'll stick it on for you."

Lin Qingqing: "—"

Lin Qingqing glanced at his skinny wrist and then watched him clumsily tear the bandage with his tender, fleshy little hand. Surprised, she said, "You didn't wait for me here with the band-aid, did you?"

He nodded his little head, then squatted down, stretched out his little chubby hand from the railing and gently pressed the bandage on her wrist. His movements were awkward and not very smooth. Then he gently held the fold on the folded bandage with his fleshy little hand which seemed to smooth the fold.

His hands are really soft and warm, and he was also too loving to wait for her here with a band-aid.

Whose child, ah, has been taught so well! Lin Qingqing wrapped her arms around her knees and propped her chin onto it. She smiled at him with her head tilted and asked him in a very gentle and tender voice, "Your name is Xiao Yuan?" She had heard the kindergarten teacher call him that.

Somehow, he seemed to look at her smile in a daze. He looked adorable. Lin Qingqing put up with the impulse to poke him twice in the face and said, "Auntie asks you... Is your name Xiao Yuan?"

Only then did he return to his senses. He scratched his little face with his little chubby paws, lifted up his little head, and said in a tender voice, "My name is Yi Beiyuan. Auntie can call me Xiao Yuan."

Yi Beiyuan? That's a nice name ah.

"My name is Lin Qingqing. You can call me Auntie Qingqing."

"Auntie Qingqing." He gave a sweet sound.

His voice was so sweet that it softened one's heart.

"It’s so late, your parents have not come to pick you up?" Lin Qingqing asked him again.

"Dad has a meeting."

"What about mom?"

His face turned gloomy, his head hung down and his voice was low, which made people feel like he was going to cry the next moment. "Mom has gone to a very far place."

Lin Qingqing: "—"

Lin Qingqing recalled when she was ten and her grandfather died, she’d asked her mother where her grandfather had gone. Her mother told her that her grandfather had gone far away.

Far away was an ambiguous and sad word used to comfort children. He said that his mother had gone to a very far place, and maybe his mother was no longer alive.

What a pity. He looks like he's only four at most. He lost his mom at such a young age.

Lin Qingqing did not want to ask him any more questions to make him sad. She looked at the snack bar across the street and said to him, "Are you hungry? The steamed cakes over there are delicious. Shall I buy one for you?"

He raised his head, looked at the other side with his big eyes, and then stared at her. He seemed to nod very cleverly without considering for long, said with a meng voice, "Okay."

Lin Qingqing went to buy a steamed cake and handed it to him. He took the steamed cake, pouted his small mouth, blew it a few times, and took a bite.

So unguarded? Even if his mother was gone, didn't his father teach him to be wary of strangers?

"Don't eat anything given to you by people you don't know in the future, do you understand?"

He frowned slightly and pursed his small mouth. He took another bite of steamed cake carefully for fear of scalding his mouth. When he heard this, he nodded in a puzzled way. He responded very well and obediently. "Okay." Then he thought of something and said, "Auntie is a good person, can eat what Auntie gives."

Eh?

What if this little kid gets cheated in the future? So naїve and easy to cheat, what if he meets bad people?

"Auntie, quick go home for dinner."

Lin Qingqing laughed and said, "That's all right. I’ll wait for your dad."

The little kid shook his head and said, "I will wait by myself. It's so cold here. Girls shouldn’t be out in too much cold wind."

Wow!!!

So gentle and considerate? He is simply a little warm boy, right? What if a 25-year-old aunt was pulled by a four-year-old child?

Later, at the insistence of the child, Lin Qingqing was finally "driven away".

The next afternoon Lin Qingqing was still delivering food to the Beicheng Aeronautical Engineering Institute. She did not forget the little meng she met yesterday. When she passed by the kindergarten, she looked at the iron railing. She did not expect to see him at a glance. He still stood there with big eyes looking at her. When she saw him, he grinned at her with a very bright smile.

Rosy lips and pretty white teeth, lovely like jade snow, directly hit the heart of the 25-year-old auntie. Lin Qingqing stopped the scooter and rushed to him. "Auntie will do the delivery first and then accompany you?"

He nodded enthusiastically, his eyes were unbelievably bright.

One didn’t know if she wanted to have a little kid waiting for her to play with him, but today, Lin Qingqing delivered goods very quickly. When she returned to the kindergarten, the little boy was still standing there. He smiled at her when he saw her from afar.

Lin Qingqing went to the iron railing and squatted down. "Is your dad having a meeting again today?"

"En." The clear little voice answered, then he looked at her hands for a moment and asked her, "Auntie, can you give me your hand?"

Whether it was her illusion or not, but she felt a cautious tone in his questioning.

Lin Qingqing did not think too much and generously stretched out her hands. She saw his eyes shining, as if a little delighted, and then he reached out his chubby little hands and held her hands in his podgy palms. Then he lowered his head and blew a warm breath on her palms and said, "Auntie’s hands are cold, I'll warm you up."

OMG, does this little thing want this old auntie’s life?!

He gently rubbed his small hands on the back of her hands with some awkwardness. Feeling it wasn’t enough, he pulled her hands and put them on his cheeks. His skin was tender, smooth, and warm. When her palms touched it, a warm current immediately flowed into her heart.

Dead ah dead, I’m so dead!

However, Lin Qingqing was also afraid that she would make the child laugh if she were to lose control. She perked up and said, "Why are you so sweet? If your mom has a child like you, she'll wake up laughing in her dreams."

The little child somewhat hung his head, and with a face full of dejection said in a low voice, "My mom doesn't like me. My mom never lets me come near."

"Ah?!"

Lin Qingqing was surprised. She simply could not understand. "How could it be? Why doesn't your mom like you when you are so good?"

He immediately raised his little head again. His dark eyes were brighter and more cautious. With a little expectation, he asked, "Does Auntie really think I am very good?"

Good, it was simply impossible to be not good, right? She nodded without thinking and could not help rubbing his little head and added: "Of course! Xiao Yuan is very good!"

He seemed satisfied, laughing in a low voice and rubbing unconsciously into the palm of her hand.

It's so meng ah, Lin Qingqing couldn't help rubbing it a few more times.

The little guy giggled twice and suddenly looked behind her and said, "Daddy is coming."

She went to bed brimmimg with hope and happiness of her dream, and skipped 5 years of stacked suffering of those close to her and then bamm she got a cute good kid. It seems life doesn't want her to remember anything painful (even birth labour lol).
