After all, this restaurant was extraordinarily expensive, and a meal here could easily cost a five -figure sum.
“It’s alright. I can afford it.” Qin Hongyu was afraid that she wouldn’t believe him, so he added, “Really, trust me.”
Li Yinian smiled and said, “Okay, my treat next time.”
‘There’s going to be a next time…’ Qin Hongyu was going to faint again.
Suddenly, she heard footsteps.
Li Yinian turned around and said, “Jinchen, Jinqing, why are you two here?”
She then opened her arms and let the two kids hug her.
However, the two kids suddenly yelled, “Mom!”
Li Yinian was dazed, and so was Qin Hongyu.
“Mom, why are you here?” Jinqing hugged her arm and said. “Dad said you’re going to abandon your husband and children. Is that true?”
“Don’t you want us anymore, Mom?” Jinchen blinked.
Li Yinian didn’t have time to explain. She looked up and saw Qiao Yanze standing there with his hands crossed. The man looked cold, but his lips were curled into a sneer.
She bit her lips and forced a smile, “Jinqing, Jinchen, go back to Uncle Qiao first.”
Jinqing shook her arm and said, “Aren’t you coming back with us?”
Jinchen looked at Qin Hongyu and asked, “Uncle, can you return Mom to us?”
Qin Hongyu finally came back to reality and stammered, “Of… Of course… Um, I’ll pay the bill first.”
He then stood up and rushed to the cashier.
Li Yinian smiled bitterly and looked at the two kids. “You guys…”
“Sorry, Aunt Li,” Jinqing said. “But Uncle Qiao is so pitiful.”
“I swear I’ll only help him this once.” Jinchen raised a finger.
Li Yinian wouldn’t argue with the two kids. She smiled and stroked their heads, indicating that she wouldn’t mind.
Even if she held a grudge, it would only be against Qiao Yanze.
Qiao Yanze walked over with one hand in his pocket. His tall body and cold face made him look very oppressive.
“Why? Did your date run away?” He sneered.
Li Yinian said calmly, “He’s just paying the bill.”
“Really? I want to see if he still has the guts to come back.” Qiao Yanze’s eyes dimmed. “Li Yinian, you better be throwing a tantrum at me, otherwise…”
If that woman thought he was getting engaged and found a man to anger him, he would let her off this time.
“I’m serious.” Li Yinian looked at him. “Qiao Yanze, I officially announce that we’re done. Please don’t disturb me anymore.”
“You…” Qiao Yanze’s expression changed.
“Are you going to do the same thing again?” She smiled. “If you want to ban me, please go ahead. I’ll quit the entertainment industry…”
“Why did you quit the entertainment world? Get married and be a good wife and mother?” Qiao Yanze clenched his fist and stared at her. “Li Yinian, dream on.”
“You scared them,” Li Yinian said and smiled at the two kids. “Why don’t Auntie Li send you home?”
“Of course they’ll come home with me.” Qiao Yanze stared at her coldly. “You too.”
