After hanging up the phone, Gong Jie bought a cup of milk tea and got in a car.
“Shishi, do you want some milk tea?”
He passed the drink to her with a gentle smile. It was as if his eyes were filled with millions of stars for they were beautiful and fascinating.
The woman received the drink, forgetting to thank him for it as she was still in shock. Her heart continued to palpitate.
Everything that was happening before her still seemed like a dream. She could not help being suspicious about whether she was dreaming or this was the reality!
She was still in a daze, and her thoughts were in a mess. She could hardly believe that the person she had been missing for over a decade had descended like a god right in front of her!
Therefore, when the man got in the car, Yun Shishi stared fixedly at his face, unblinkingly and completely lost in thought.
Inwardly, she was slightly afraid—afraid that, if she were to blink, this person before her would disappear into thin air!
This was too incredible!
The same scene from years ago played clearly before her eyes.
Those buried memories were unleashed in an instant as they flashed before her.
Xiao Jie was her twin brother. They were twins with contrasting genders, and she was the older of them both.
As she began to recall everything, she remembered that, apart from Mu Qingcheng’s gentle smile, there was her brother’s mischievous and adorable face.
The man was born a few minutes after her.
They came out one after another. He grew up well and was often always ahead of her in height. Therefore, he rarely called her ‘older sister’. He would rather call her ‘Shishi’ most of the time!
‘Shishi, play with me please!
‘Shishi, I can’t fall asleep. Tell me a story, please?
‘Shishi, why are you crying? Did someone bully you? Tell me who did, and I’ll teach that kid a lesson!’
Repeatedly, she tried to make things right, be it through threats or deception, but the little guy was defiant and even questioned her. “Why must I call you ‘older sister’ when you were just born a few minutes earlier than me?”
Even now, whenever she recalled her little brother with his petulant face, she could not help chuckling.
Today, her little brother was all grown up.
From the tiny lad who was still learning how to crawl, staggering after her when he was so small, to a full-grown man of at least 1.9 meters in height with a dashing yet intimidating disposition.
Those originally fair and young features had already become more distinct, refined, and handsome.
The adorable and tender face in her memories had grown into one with handsome eyes slanting at the corner, a high nose, and charming, thin lips.
His silver hair flew against the wind, making his lower jaw seem as sharp as a knife.
There was some regret in her heart. She found it a pity that she had not been by his side and that they did not grow up together, so they missed out on so many memories that they could have forged together!
As vexed as she was, she was also thankful for the heavens’ generous treatment in letting them meet again.
Seeing how she was looking at him fixedly, Gong Jie gave a slight smile. He put aside his aloof persona and sat obediently by her side, just like how he used to do when he was young. He gazed down at her.
He was now so much taller than her.
Even as they were seated, she still had to raise her head to look back at him.
The man bent his body slightly out of consideration, lowering his posture so that he was looking at her at the same eye level.
He knew that she wanted to take a good look at him.
