After Yifan left, Qi Yue thought for a while, went directly to the boss, and settled the salary for the past few days. He just wanted to work these few days and it would be unnecessary to ask for a day off.
The boss is very nice and he gave him another day’s pay. After Qi Yue thanked the boss, following the address Yifan gave him, he went to Huajing Community.
Qi Mingyu had received a call from Yifan before. He was not surprised to see Qi Yue and directly let Qi Yue into the villa.
“Come with me.” Qi Mingyu said lightly, not looking at him, and went straight to the second floor.
Qi Yue wiped his sweaty palms on his pants and hurriedly followed.
On the second floor was a room. Inside Qi Yue saw Qi Mingyu push a little boy who appeared to be carved from pink jade from his side.
“You play with him for a while.” After Qi Mingyu finished speaking, he added another sentence, “Talk to him more.”
“Yes.” Qi Yue nodded.
“Mingfan.” Qi Mingyu walked to Qi Mingfan, “Will you let this person accompany you today?”
Qi Mingfan raised his head after hearing his brother’s voice, then glanced at Qi Yue, and then lowered his head to continue playing with blocks.
Qi Mingyu relaxed. It seemed that Mingfan didn’t dislike Qi Yue, so he stood up and said “Come in.” Qi Yue watched Qi Mingyu leave the room, exhaled and walked to Qi Mingfan’s side.
“Your name is Mingfan?” Qi Yue asked.
Qi Mingfan seemed to have not heard.
Qi Yue sighed secretly-this child was a little autistic as Yifan said.
He looked at the blocks that Qi Mingfan was playing with and found that they were the kind of blocks that were very educational and test children’s IQ. Qi Mingfan was very skilled in the way he played. It looks like he had even completed several of them in this short period of time.
Qi Yue thought for a while, found a pen and paper on the small table next to him, then looked at Qi Mingfan’s appearance, and sketched out a cute small version of the child several times. The child on the picture is also playing games, but on his face there was a smile and their eyes were bright.
Qi Yue put the finished picture next to Qi Mingfan. Qi Mingfan’s hands playing with the blocks paused, and his eyes were placed on the picture involuntarily, but it was only for a short while. After looking at it, Qi Mingfan’s eyes moved back.
Qi Yue breathed a sigh of relief–at least Qi Mingfan was reacting.
He picked up the pen, thinking about Qi Mingyu’s appearance, and drew it on the paper again. This time, there are two small characters, one large and one small, the larger one is very facially paralyzed, but his eyes are gentle. Holding the small one in his hands with a helpless look because the younger child was very sad and crying. There was a dropped ice cream on the ground.
Qi Yue’s paintings are very vivid and one can tell at a glance that they are the brothers Qi Mingyu and Qi Mingfan.
After finishing the painting Qi Yue raised his head and was surprised to find that Qi Mingfan was looking at him. To be precise, it should be the drawing paper in his hand. Qi Yue smiled, carefully moved to Qi Mingfan’s side, and passed the picture in his hand over.
Qi Mingfan didn’t answer so Qi Yue didn’t force it, and placed it in front of Qi Mingfan. Qi Mingfan’s gaze followed the drawing paper.
Seeing that Qi Mingfan reacted to his paintings, Qi Yue continued to draw a few more. Without exception, it was Qi Mingyu and Qi Mingfan. The pictures were warm and fun.
Unknowingly, Qi Mingfan and Qi Yue actually stuck close together. Qi Mingfan stared at Qi Yue’s painting closely. He knew what a paintbrush was but in Qi Yue’s hand it had become extremely magical. It is just simple lines but the image becomes vivid on paper.
The floor was covered with paintings.
Qi Mingyu was stunned when he came in. He was even more surprised when he saw that his younger brother was so close to an outsider. Although it did not show on his face, the image of Qi Yue is finally imprinted in his heart.
When Qi Yue saw Qi Mingyu coming in, the pen in his hand stopped. He was a little nervous and looked at Qi Mingyu stupidly, not knowing what to do.
There was a touch on his hand, Qi Yue lowered his head in surprise, and found a small head hanging on his chest. The small hand was holding his hand moving, obviously trying to finish the picture.
Qi Yue’s heart suddenly softened, and he carefully guided Qi Mingfan to finish the drawing with his hand.
Qi Mingfan’s eyes brightened, looking at the painting he had “painted”, he pulled it out of Qi Yue’s hand, then walked slowly towards Qi Mingyu, raised his hand and gave it to him.
“Mingfan.” Qi Mingyu squatted down, feeling a little excited and emotional. Although Qi Mingfan would take the initiative to take care of him, it was the first time he took something from an outsider and handed it to him. What moved him was that Qi Mingfan finally reacted to outsiders a little. The interaction between Yifan and Qi Mingfan a few days ago did not reach this point. Thinking of this, Qi Mingyu put his eyes on Qi Yue, and he couldn’t figure out what is special about Qi Yue.
The rays of sunlight came in through the window and sprinkled on Qi Yue’s back, making Qi Yue’s whole body be covered with a soft light. The young man’s skin was fair, his facial features were delicate, his eyes were clear and fresh. They made eye contact and Qi Yue smiled shyly. For a while Qi Mingyu’s impression of Qi Yue was very good, but then he changed his thought and put his mind on his brother again.
“Hungry?” Qi Mingyu rubbed Qi Mingfan’s small head.
Qi Mingfan rubbed his stomach and nodded.
Seeing that the two brothers were going to eat, Qi Yue hurriedly got up and planned to leave.
Qi Mingyu called Qi Yue to stay, “You can eat here, and you can leave after you finish.”
After saying that, he hugged Qi Mingfan and went downstairs.
Qi Yue stood there dumbfounded and a little at a loss. He didn’t really want to eat here.
But Qi Yue didn’t know how to refuse, so he followed to the dining table.
The table is full-takeaway.
Qi Mingfan ate very little. He put down his chopsticks after only a few bites. Qi Mingyu sighed and touched Qi Mingfan’s belly, “You are not full yet, eat some more?”
Qi Mingfan squeezed his fingers in silence, indicating that he did not want to eat.
“That… he may not be used to eating these meals.” Qi Yue looked at Qi Mingfan’s pitiful appearance, biting his chopsticks and said.
Qi Mingyu raised his head and glanced at Qi Yue.
“Uh…I mean, kids are usually picky eaters…that is, maybe it’s better to change something else.” Qi Yue licked his lips. In fact, he thought these dishes were too rich and luxurious. It is important for kids to balance of simple and rich meals. It’s okay for children to eat for a while, but they will definitely get tired if they always eat same thing.
Qi Mingyu frowned, “What should he eat?”
Qi Yue was stunned for a moment, but he didn’t realize that Qi Mingyu asked him. He thought for a while, “…egg soup?”
“He has already eaten a little bit and won’t eat much more of whatever else. It will be more suitable if you make some egg soup, and it will be nutritious.”
“Ah?” Qi Yue opened his mouth in surprise, pointing to himself in a daze, and asked “Do you want me to do it?”
Qi Mingyu put down his chopsticks, “Will you? If so, do it, and the reward will not be less for you.”
Hearing Qi Mingyu’s words while looking at him with an unchanged face. Qi Yue felt a little sad-he was not for money at all, but simply surprised, because he never thought that Qi Mingyu would ask him to cook. It was only an accident that he came here. Afterwards they will not have much intersection.
However, Qi Yue moved his lips and still didn’t say the explanation.
In fact, what is the difference between the solution or not?
Qi Yue lowered his eyes, stood up and went to the kitchen to make the soup.
The refrigerator was full of fruits and vegetables, but it doesn’t seem like they had been moved much. Qi Yue picked two eggs, beat them into a paste, put some water and seasonings, and cut some minced meat, planning to put them on top of the egg soup.
After the egg soup was ready, Qi Yue left the kitchen.
The scent of egg soup and the salty scent of minced meat floated out. Qi Mingfan twitched his nose and his eyes moved involuntarily with the bowl Qi Yue was holding.
“Would you like to eat?” Qi Mingyu lowered his head and asked Qi Mingfan.
Qi Mingfan touched his stomach and nodded unexpectedly.
Putting the egg soup in front of Qi Mingfan, watching him dig and eat little by little with a small spoon, Qi Mingyu breathed a sigh of relief.
Qi Yue raised his head in surprise and found that the speaker was really Qi Mingyu. He was looking at Qi Mingfan, his eyes were softer than Qi Yue had ever seen.
Qi Yue seemed to hear his heart beating fast.
“No… You’re welcome” He replied slightly embarrassed.
After coming out of Qi Mingyu’s house, Qi Yue patted his face vigorously. He touched the position of his chest, smiled bitterly and shook his head-it seems that he will stay away from Qi Mingyu in the future.
Qi Yue went back to school and called Yifan to ask how things were going on at her house.
Yifan went home and the voice on the phone was very tired. She cried and told Qi Yue that her father had a car accident, they had to amputate his legs and he might be paralyzed.
Qi Yue didn’t know what to say to her, so he could only try to comfort her as much as possible. He also said that if there was anything he could do to help, he would definitely help her.
After hanging up the phone, Qi Yue calculated the money in his hand, he sighed-it was not enough to help Yifan.
Although Yifan’s family moved to a big city, the big city also had a lot of expenses. They probably didn’t have much extra money, otherwise Yifan would not come out to work a paid job. Now that Yifan’s father has had such a big incident, it would probably make life in her family be even more difficult.
Qi Yue who accompanied Qi Mingfan today and got paid but does not intend to keep it for himself, but give it to Yifan after school starts.
Although Qi Mingyu gave him more than five hundred dollars for these two hours.
At the end of the holiday, Yifan came to school with a haggard face. Suddenly there was such a big incident in her family, and it was a big blow to her.
“I plan to take time off to take care of my dad.” Yifan held the five hundred dollars Qi Yue gave her. Her eyes were red again, and they were also swollen. It seemed that she hadn’t cried any less these days.
Qi Yue raised his hand to pat her shoulder,and Yifan cried and threw herself into Qi Yue’s arms.
“Don’t worry, it will get better.” Qi Yue still hugged her, comforting awkwardly.
Yifan was almost out of breath from crying, and the pressure of life suddenly fell on the shoulders of this little girl. Even if she was sensible, she would still be at a loss.
