Yun Shishi was rendered speechless.
“Did you have fun today?” she asked with a smile.
When he was fishing earlier, she knelt at the side to watch. At that moment, she felt as if they had returned to when they were young. He would catch ants while she squatted at the side, holding her head and watching quietly.
It was a closeness she had never had before as she watched the man fish goldfish quietly.
They had matured too fast. Therefore, every childhood memory of hers was extremely precious.
After all, she could never go back to their happy, youthful days.
Some people were sentimental for those times they could never go back to.
Gong Jie glanced at her lovingly as he spoke in a gentle voice. “I’m happy as long as I’m with you.”
“Why is your mouth so sweet? It seems to be smeared with honey.”
His sister coyly pushed his shoulder. While she appeared to be feeling disdainful, she was actually extremely happy.
The man hugged her all of a sudden. “Sis…”
Yun Shishi was stunned to see him leaning against her gently. Almost half of his upper body’s weight rested on her shoulder. It was as if he hated to part from her.
“I don’t wanna be separated from you.” He spoke coquettishly.
“Then, we shall not be separated for the rest of our lives.”
“But you have my brother-in-law now.”
He seemed to hold some resentment toward his sister’s husband.
She remained quiet for a while before responding, “You will also marry someone and have kids someday.”
“I don’t want that. I don’t want a wife and just want you…” said her brother, seemingly repulsed by the thought.
The woman could feel sweetness in her heart but also indescribable sourness.
This rascal, was he acting coy with her?!
The problem was his skill was comparable to Youyou’s.
Both had possessive streaks.
The uncle-nephew pair was similar in their coquettish antics.
She heard once of a parable, saying that different-gendered twins were lovers in their past lives who had a morbid obsession as they were in love but unable to stay together until the end.
If two lovers in their past lives died in the name of love, they would become different-gendered twins in their next lives. They would be together before they were born and have an unbreakable, lifetime bond, where they could protect each other but never fall in love.
This was the prize God gave them for their unwavering loyalty to their love but a punishment for not treasuring their lives.
Yun Shishi was not superstitious about such legends of preexistence, but to her, Gong Jie had been her protector when they were young.
These feelings were deeper than her relationship with Mu Yazhe.
She could feel the dependence her brother had toward her.
“What are you thinking about?” asked her twin doubtfully, noticing her dazed look.
She regained her senses and dismissed her wild thoughts. Smiling, she asked, “Shall we head back?”
“You can stay for dinner tonight; I will cook some soup for you.”
The man was highly suspicious about it. “You know how to cook?”
“Of course!” said the woman delightedly.
He splashed her with cold water unceremoniously. “Won’t it be life-threatening to eat the food that you cook?”
“I must be responsible for my safety.”
“Don’t worry; with your condition, even arsenic won’t be able to kill you.”
“Your food might be more poisonous than arsenic.”
“Don’t think I won’t dare to hit you!”
“Ten of you won’t be able to beat me.”
“Who says so?”
“I can lift you up with just one arm.”
The two bickered all the way to the car.
All of a sudden, the man sensed something off behind them. He turned around and glanced at an area with secluded trees. He turned his head back quietly, feeling inexplicably uneasy.
