Chapter 2317: The Gathering of the Ultimate Riches (18)
"No thanks, I can barely keep my eyes open. We're too old to stay up all night, and it's been a good night. We should go home," Jiang Xiaowei agreed with Huo Mian.
"Okay then, but for those of you who drank, don't drive, alright? I already called drivers for you guys, they'll be right here. Safe travels home," Zhu Lingling said.
"Thanks, Lingling!" Ni Yang said, and the others began putting their jackets on.
Gao Boyuan was not ready to say goodnight to Little Bean. "Little Bean, when are you going to come to play again?"
"When I have time," Little Bean replied in all seriousness.
"Aren't you guys free every day? My mom said you and your sister don't go to kindergarten."
"We don't, but we're busy people… my sister's always buying and selling stocks, and I have piano and Waltz classes… We also have to spend time with our grandparents, as well as Grandma and Grandpa Su… Anyways, we don't have that much time."
"Okay then, remember to come to play when you're free." Gao Boyuan looked at Little Bean with puppy dog eyes, and the latter suddenly kissed him on the forehead. "Mhm, I will. Thanks for giving me so much food to eat tonight."
The kiss left Gao Boyuan so flattered and surprised that he froze in shock.
Pudding, standing not far away from them, burst out in laughter. "My sister's taking advantage of Boyuan again…"
Beside her, Wei Yunchu muttered. "I want to be taken advantage of as well…"
"What did you say?" Pudding asked, not sure what he was mumbling about.
"N-nothing, you didn't eat a lot tonight, aren't you hungry?" Wei Yunchu asked.
"No, it's not good to eat so much at night. It's bad for the digestive system." As young as Pudding was, she already knew how to take care of her body.
"Okay then," Wei Yunchu responded and looked down at his feet.
"Pudding, Little Bean, come put your jackets on…" Huo Mian called.
"Coming Mommy!" the twins immediately ran up to Huo Mian and Qin Chu, who helped them into their jackets.
Then, the gang left, one by one.
Zhu Lingling and Gao Ran looked at each other, and then at the mess left behind. Neither of them said anything for a good minute. Finally, Zhu Lingling smiled cutely. "Honey, who's going to clean all this up?"
"Honey… I'm exhausted, can we ask the cleaning lady to come tomorrow?" Gao Ran suggested.
"We can't do that! Our place is really hot, all this food is gonna go bad, and there's going to be bacteria everywhere… It's not good for us," Zhu Lingling said.
"What should we do then?" Gao Ran asked helplessly.
"Should we... play rock paper scissors?" Zhu Lingling suggested.
"Whoever loses has to clean up?" Worried that his wife might trick him after the fact, he decided to double-check, since Zhu Lingling was the kind of person who would change the rules after a game to make things go in her own favor.
"Of course! What do you think?"
"I'm in." Gao Ran nodded.
"Come on, I'll say one, two, three, and we both play together," Zhu Lingling said, placing her hand behind her back.
Gao Ran carefully did the same thing, feeling like she was going to cheat.
"One, two, three!" Zhu Lingling shouted, and played paper herself, while Gao Ran played scissors.
"Haha, Honey, you lost!" Gao Ran shouted in happiness.
"What's the rush? We are playing best out of three," Zhu Lingling refuted, obviously unconvinced.
"Come on, one, two, three!" Zhu Lingling said again, and Gao Ran played scissors again.
Zhu Lingling played paper…
"Honey, you lost again."
"Why would you play scissors again? Don't you know to change it up?" Zhu Lingling demanded angrily.
