Tang Jinyu agreed that Xia Ye shouldn’t eat while driving, and told him to take a couple of mouthfuls. After sending Guo Xiaohu off, the two of them went home for dinner.
When they got home late, Chen Suling had already eaten, and left a portion for them.
The family in the small town is the same as it was a few years ago. The front and back yards of the two houses are stacked together, and someone has been taking care of things here. Except for the flowers in the yard that are not pruned and the branches and leaves bloom a bit wild, but the rest is the same as before. Several fruit trees have grown a lot, and the grape racks are still luxuriant this year, and the small green grapes can already be vaguely seen.
Xia Ye went to heat up the meal, and the tofu bun he brought back with his brother was also warmed up, put it on a plate, opened the door curtain and shouted directly a few steps out the door: “Xiaoyu, come down for dinner.”
Tang Jinyu was stepping on his tiptoes as he picked small grapes from the grape rack. Upon hearing this, he plucked a small brunch. The small green bunch swayed in his hand and he handed it over flatteringly, “Brother, I’m going to wash it, we’ll eat it together later!”
Xia Ye frowned when he saw this: “Why don’t you use scissors?”
”I forgot, I was in a hurry, I saw a few red ones on this one…”
Xia Ye squeezed his finger over, looked at it first, then lowered his head and looked at his slightly reddish fingers, making sure that he was not pierced by the small thorns on the vine before he was relieved, “Go wash your hands, I’ll wash the grapes while you’re gone.”
Tang Jinyu said okay, but ran to the kitchen to wash his hands, and washed the grapes along the way. When eating, he picked the reddest ones and gave them to his brother to please him, “Brother, you eat the first grape this year.”
A few small sour grapes were not delicious, but Xia Ye still thought it had a good taste.
He raised his head and glanced at the little guy who was eating on the opposite side from him, and he saw that he was much more relaxed after eating grapes. Just like when he was a child, he first handed filial piety to anything he did wrong, If the adults in the family ate the sugar in his hand or drank the water he poured, the little guy would feel that he could almost get through.
Tang Jinyu really thought so in his heart.
He saw that Xia Ye was eating the plate of tofu buns on the table, so he moved the plate to his brother’s hand. “Brother, you can eat more. I still have some more, even though I only learned it in two days, but if you like it, I can make it for you everyday…” He added in a low voice, “I am not being greedy this time, I just want to help my classmates, his family is having a difficult time.”
He talked about Ji Yuanjie’s house with Xia Ye, and said he was sad, “Brother, you said that Xiao Ji is such a good person, how come good people meet bad guys, and the truck driver can’t be found anywhere, and wouldn’t answer phone calls from court, he’s really brave.”
Xia Ye glanced at him and said, “You are also very courageous, you dare to go to work?”
Tang Jinyu whispered: “I’m already very careful, I haven’t touched the fire to cook…”
”What did you touch?”
”Be less foolish and I’ll talk to you after dinner.”
Xia Ye said harshly, but Tang Jinyu was not afraid of him, he was mostly afraid of his mother. His mother doesn’t speak hard, but she will be sad along with him if he accidentally gets injured. He doesn’t see his mother being sad, so when he goes outside he pays special attention to finding places that won’t hurt his hands when looking for part-time jobs—if he hurts his hands, it is estimated that Teacher Xia will also worry about his piano competition at the end of the year.
After Xia Ye finished eating, he went upstairs to his home. Tang Jinyu followed with a small plate of grapes. Xia Ye sat down in the study and looked up and saw his brother looking at him like a puppy. If he had a tail, it would probably hang down now, swinging back and forth slightly sweeping the floor.
Xia Ye wanted to laugh in his heart, but he didn’t show it on his face, and said to him: “Come here, let me tell you a few words.”
Tang Jinyu carried the grapes and sat on his desk directly face to face.
Xia Ye: “…”
This is indeed the place where Tang Jinyu has been accustomed to being in since he was a child, but when he sat down like this, he couldn’t speak out.
Xia Ye glanced at him, and Tang Jinyu misunderstood him, and immediately peeled a grape to his mouth, and wanted to feed him to please him. He looked very good, and said, “I was wrong, and I should behave well.”
Xia Ye opened his mouth and ate a green grape first without saying a word.
Seriously, the grapes were really sour, and only the few ones that were eaten at the table just now were sweet, but his brother was smiling very sweetly when sitting in front of him, as if he should forgive him more if he eats one more.
Xia Ye ate after hesitating, waved his hand and said, “Sit down, I’ll tell you a few words.”
Tang Jinyu sat there honestly, listening with his plate.
”It’s not that you are not allowed to work, but that you are still young and have been in poor health before. Unlike other people, what should you do if you get sick? And I know this isn’t the first time, so I asked my aunt’s secretary in the afternoon, how did you send the express?”
Tang Jinyu shook his head: “No, brother, I only went there to help them. I only went this afternoon, and I went to Su Zhai, before I was caught by you after just two hours of work.”
Xia Ye looked at him amusedly, “Then if I didn’t catch it, how long did you plan to work there?”
”Only a few days, I wanted to find a way first to help Xiao Ji think of a way.” Tang Jinyu gently rubbed his calf on his brother’s knee, and whispered, “Xiao Ji has it difficult right now, there are a lot of us that want to help contribute during summer vacation, and I told them that they must never do illegal things. I didn’t even let them deliver the express by electric tricycle this afternoon,and that they had to get their driver’s license, isn’t the first rule in our family? That we must make sure to pay attention to safety…”
Xia Ye asked: “They all listen to you?”
The person at the desk said with joy: “It’s okay, there’s little weight.”
”What are your plans after the summer vacation?”
”I don’t know yet.”
”Did you come up with this by yourself?”
Tang Jinyu nodded and looked at Xia Ye’s silence, and couldn’t help but whispered: “I know it’s quite immature, but, but I can’t just watch and not help…” He was already very tactful. Well, in Guo Xiaohu’s words, he can’t watch Xiao Ji be so poor that he can’t turn over.
Xia Ye asked him: “If I didn’t come today, how much would you be willing to tell me?”
Tang Jinyu smiled and wanted to feed him grapes, but Xia Ye didn’t eat it this time. His brows wrinkled, and looked over, thinking about what went wrong.
Tang Jinyu looked away a little, fiddled with the green grapes on the plate, and turned away from the topic: “Brother, isn’t your company very busy? Why did you come back suddenly? Did something happen?”
Xia Ye nodded, “Yes.”
”What’s the matter?”
”The piggy bank at home is empty, what do you think.”
When he said that Tang Jinyu was guilty again, his eyes fluttered, Xia Ye raised his hand and pinched his chin to make him correct his attitude, “You knew that something happened to Xiaoji’s family before the high school entrance exam. Why didn’t you tell your family at that time? If you don’t want to cause trouble to your family, you should come to me.”
Tang Jinyu whispered: “You are busy.”
Xia Ye smiled angrily, “Who said that?”
”I can see that at noon today, I called the secretary and she said that you were busy with something, and I can’t look for you for everything…”
Xia Ye’s hand strength increased a bit, and the little guy immediately cried out, and he said to Tang Jinyu: “Don’t cause trouble, I’m not busy.” He patted the little guy’s leg, let him go down, and took a pen and paper from the drawer. After a few lines of words, he said to him: “I’ll help your classmate find a lawyer, and if my aunt is too busy, I’ll do it.”
Tang Jinyu’s eyes lit up, and he leaned over to take a look, “Brother, do you know a lawyer?”
Xia Ye didn’t know him, but Song Yi could definitely find the most suitable person to recommend.
After asking Tang Jinyu, he wrote about the situation of Ji Yuanjie’s home and called Song Yi. He answered quickly and recommended a famous lawyer in Qizhou within an hour.
Song Yi said on the phone: “It will take a while for the lawyer to come from Qizhou. He still has a case on hand and he needs to hand it over to other people before he can come over to take this one. However, he has already discussed it with the other party and he should come within three days.”
Xia Ye said: “Good, hard work.”
Song Yi smiled and said, “What’s so hard about it, but it’s just a matter of contacting individuals. By the way, you still won’t be with us at this annual meeting? This time, you will go abroad for an island vacation. There will be sunshine and beaches, it would be a shame if you didn’t come.”
Xia Ye said: “You go, I will accompany Xiaoyu.”
Tang Jinyu had been waiting by the side, Xia Ye told him after seeing it.
Tang Jinyu breathed a sigh of relief when he heard that the lawyer was about to come, but he immediately became nervous when he heard that their company was going abroad, holding Xia Ye’s hand and saying, “Brother, don’t go.”
”I’m not going.” Xia Ye said, “Didn’t I stay at home to accompany you that time? Otherwise, someone would accuse me of being ‘busy’ again, right?”
Tang Jinyu’s heartbeat was fierce, and he felt a little nervous and uncomfortable. Xia Ye didn’t know why he was suddenly depressed, so he poured a glass of milk over and sat on the sofa for him to drink, “What’s the matter? You don’t want to go out to play, If you want to go, I can…”
Tang Jinyu shook his head and hugged him in a low voice: “Brother, don’t go abroad. I can’t stand it if you go so far. I feel uncomfortable and want to cry.” Not only does he seem to not be able to fly by himself, but he also doesn’t want his brother to sit on a plane. He doesn’t know what kind of strange disease this was, he wanted to open his mouth to explain, but he couldn’t say a word.
Xia Ye touched his hair and chuckled lightly.
He felt the same.
In the past few days when the little guy left, his heart felt bad, it was always beating, thinking about things, and when he didn’t receive his call became the last straw that he hadn’t gotten through that afternoon.
He sighed, Tang Jinyu heard this and asked him what was wrong.
Xia Ye put his hand on his head and rubbed it, “It’s nothing, don’t be out for so long next time, just call me if you have anything, don’t worry me.”
