After getting out of the car, Lin Xingruo almost lost her balance and leaned closer to Shao Jingmo. On the other hand, Shao Jingmo did not pull away from her. From his body movements, it could be seen that he had taken good care of Lin Xingruo.

But this scene was very glaring to Qiao Qiao!! Why did he have to touch her! Didn’t he know that he was a married man?!

At this moment, Lin Xingruo looked up and saw Qiao Qiao standing on the steps. She stood on tiptoe and waved at Qiao Qiao. “Sister Qiao Qiao!’

Qiao Qiao’s lips curled into a very forced smile in response to Lin Xingruo. Mother Qiao’s voice came from beside her. “From afar, Xingruo and Jingmo’s temperaments are quite compatible.”

“Compatible?” Qiao Qiao answered her own question. “l don’t think it’s right at all. With Little Uncle’s graceful temperament, not many people are worthy of him.”

There was a hidden meaning in Mother Qiao’s words. “What about yourself?” Qiao Qiao pursed her lips and didn’t answer.

Lin Xingruo had already followed Shao Jingmo over. She took a few steps in front of Shao Jingmo and stepped up the steps first. She stretched out her hands to Mother Qiao. After Mother Qiao held them, she called out sweetly, “Auntie.”

Mother Qiao held Lin Xingruo’s hand and smiled. “Little Xingruo, 1 haven’t seen you in a long time. You’re about to become a big girl.”

Lin Xingruo smiled shyly. “Aunt, I’m already 21 years old. I’m an adult.”

Beside her, Qiao Qiao said slowly, “Xingruo.”

Lin Xingruo withdrew her hand from Mother Qiao’s hand, then opened her arms and took the initiative to hug Qiao Qiao warmly. “Sister Qiao Qiao, I didn’t know that you’d been back in Xingzhou for a long time. If I had known,

I would have come to look for you earlier. I missed you so much.”

Qiao Qiao hugged Lin Xingruo back. “l came back in a hurry before. My former classmates and friends didn’t know or contact me.”

“You still have the cheek to say that. It’s fine if it’s someone else, but you didn’t contact me when you came back. Back then, I came to Xingzhou to attend university because you were in Xingzhou. Later on, you went to the capital, but I haven’t graduated from university. When I returned to the capital, I heard that you had returned to Xingzhou. Can it be such a coincidence?”

Lin Xingruo’s tone was filled with resentment. Her enthusiasm and joy for Qiao Qiao came from the bottom of her heart. After all, Qiao Qiao was her best playmate when she was young.

Qiao Qiao apologized to Lin Xingruo and explained the reason, but she didn’t say anything about her marriage to Shao Jingmo. She only talked about her grandfather’s health.

Tears welled up in Lin Xingruo’s eyes. “My mother never mentioned Grandpa’s health to me. I didn’t even know.”

Qiao Qiao was about to say that she would take Lin Xingruo to see her grandfather. Unexpectedly, Lin Xingruo turned around and pulled Shao Jingmo’s sleeve. She begged, “Little Uncle, bring me to see Grandpa.”

Seeing this, Qiao Qiao was speechless.

Shao Jingmo, who had not spoken since he came, replied under Lin Xingruo’s pleading, “Sure.”

Qiao Qiao said, “Xingruo, why don’t I take you to see Grandpa?”

Mother Qiao grabbed Qiao Qiao’s wrist. “Let Jingmo take Xingruo there.

Guigui, come with me to the kitchen to help.”

Shao Jingmo’s gaze swept past Qiao Qiao and stopped on Lin Xingruo. He said lightly, “Let’s go.”

“Auntie, Sister Qiao Qiao, I’ll go see Grandpa first.” With that, Lin Xingruo followed Shao Jingmo in first.

Qiao Qiao turned around and was about to follow her in when Mother Qiao kept pulling her. “Xingruo hasn’t come to our house in a long time. If she wants to see her grandfather, let Jingmo take her there. Come to the kitchen with me and have dinner early.”

Qiao Qiao freed her wrist from Mother Qiao’s grip and said expressionlessly, “I won’t go to the kitchen. My culinary skills are poor, so I can’t help much.” With that, she walked in alone with her head lowered.

Mother Qiao stepped forward. “Are you angry?”

Qiao Qiao deliberately hid her emotions. “Why would I be angry?”

Mother Qiao saw everything. “My daughter’s good culinary skills were taught by me personally back then. Why did your culinary skills suddenly become bad? Did you forget your skills in the years you’ve been in the capital?” “l just forgot,” Qiao Qiao said.

Mother Qiao didn’t know what to say for a moment. Looking at Qiao Qiao’s lonely back as she went upstairs, she thought for a few seconds and followed her. She pulled Qiao Qiao upstairs and returned to the bedroom. She closed the door again and gestured to her. “Sit down. I’ll tell you the current situation.”

Qiao Qiao was a little confused. Her mood changed greatly from disappointment to confusion. She sat obediently and raised her head like a schoolboy, waiting for Mother Qiao to continue..
