It was already six o’clock by the time they left the police station. Gu Junling suggested that they have dinner together. However, Wen Xinya turned him down tactfully because she was thinking of Si Yiyan, who was waiting for her. After several failed attempts at talking her around, they had no choice but to part ways with her.
After they left, Si Yiyan pulled over beside her in his gray Porsche Cayenne.
Wen Xinya smiled gleefully and got inside the car.
Si Yiyan increased the temperature of the air conditioner in the car and asked, “What would you like to have for dinner?”
Feeling warmed up, Wen Xinya grinned and said, “I want to have some hotpot. Warm and spicy foods are the best during winter.”
Staring at her affectionately, Si Yiyan said, “Alright! Let’s go have hotpot.”
“I know of a hotpot restaurant that serves delicious soup bases,” said Wen Xinya, who then told him the exact address of the restaurant.
Si Yiyan drove towards the hotpot restaurant. Neither of them mentioned about what happened in the police station throughout the journey.
The hotpot restaurant was located in the Eastern District which was commonly known as the slums of the city. Although the citizens living in that area were living in poverty, the district was famous for its wide variety delicacies. Lots of tycoons and wealthy citizens living in the Southern District would often head there to dine.
The hotpot restaurant that Wen Xinya suggested was rather small and unappealing on the surface. Although the shop was a little shabby and run down, it was still rather sanitary.
As soon as they entered the restaurant, the aroma of spicy soup wafted up to their noses and the steam from the hot food warmed them up. “Do you still remember what I told you about getting chased by a dog because of food when I was younger?”
Si Yiyan answered, “Of course I do. I remember all your words!”
Wen Xinya snorted with laughter.
“If Buddha can’t bring you to Nirvana, I’ll take you to transcend worldliness.”
“Si Yiyan, have I ever told you that I fancy you a lot and that you’re the best man I’ve ever met?”
Wen Xinya was momentarily speechless. Staring at him with an alluring gaze, she hurriedly changed the subject and said, “It was wintertime then, and I fainted in front of this restaurant. The owner of this restaurant was the one who took me in and treated me to a comforting meal of hotpot. Back then, it was the most fulfilling meal that I had ever had.”
Si Yiyan grinned widely.
Wen Xinya ordered a double-soup hotpot that consisted of ribs broth and chili broth, both of which were separated by a divider in the pot. They then proceeded to order more than ten dishes.
The soup was served soon after they placed their orders. Wen Xinya began to get hungry upon sight of the appetizing broths.
Si Yiyan would cook some veggies in the broth and scoop them into the bowl after they were cooked.
Wen Xinya began eating gleefully.
Wen Xinya fed Si Yiyan a fishball and said, “The fishballs are delicious. Give them a try.”
Si Yiyan took a bite out of the fishball that she fed him.
Wen Xinya whipped her phone out to snap a photo of Si Yiyan eating the fishball in a comical manner. She couldn’t help but burst into laughter.
“You’re being mischievous again, huh?” Si Yiyan walked towards her and moved the fishball towards her mouth with his mouth.
As soon as Wen Xinya bit the fishball, their lips pressed against each other.
They began to flirt with each other while smooching and eating the fishball.
After finishing the first fishball, Si Yiyan continued to kiss her a few more times before letting go of her.
Wen Xinya’s lips were rosy and red, and she gazed at Si Yiyan affectionately. “Si Yiyan, we’re in public. You ought to be mindful of your image, lest you get accused by others for acting inappropriately with an underage teenager.”
Si Yiyan helped her to the food nonchalantly and asked, “Do I seem like a pedophile?”
Wen Xinya was filled with a sudden ominous feeling while eating her food.
Seemingly having failed to notice her unusual behavior, Si Yiyan continued to help her to the food and said, “According to research, a five-year age gap for couples is the optimal age gap for a stable relationship. Couples who have a five-year age gap also tend to face lesser conflicts.”
Noticing that he had been eating less than her, Wen Xinya decided to help him to some food as well.
Si Yiyan continued, “The findings of a study conducted by researchers from Vienna University have found that birth rates are higher for couples that have a four- to six-year age gap, where the man is older than the woman. Also, those couples tend to have smarter children and happier marriages.”
Wen Xinya almost choked on her water. She glared at Si Yiyan and said, “Si Yiyan, what are you talking about!?! I’m 15 years old now, not 25. Besides, how are you so sure that I’d marry you? Perhaps you might meet a better woman and leave me for her.”
Si Yiyan looked at her and exclaimed, “That’s impossible!”
Wen Xinya asked, “Why?”
Si Yiyan looked at Wen Xinya with a tender gaze. “Wen Xinya, people like us have to learn how to be loyal! In Lucifer, all the traitors will have to have their bones broken before they’re sent to be executed. I’ve been practicing loyalty.”
Wen Xinya’s heart wrenched up, finding Si Yiyan’s words to have some hidden meanings.
Si Yiyan stared at her abruptly and said, “Ever since I swore to be loyal to you, I’ll never betray you. If I do, death shall be the only thing that awaits me.”
Wen Xinya suddenly recalled the time where he knelt down before her in the small and claustrophobic room in the condominium. It was as if he was her pious worshipper and he then shackled her legs with a chain that was labeled “Slave of Love”.
“When you knelt down before me back then, was it a ritual?” she asked. In fact, it was indeed a ritual when he compared himself to a slave who was only loyal to one master.
Si Yiyan nodded and explained, “This is an ancient ritual that originated from Huaxia. It symbolizes eternal loyalty to a single master and one would have to make the sacred vow using their life.”
“Si Yiyan, if you promise to be loyal, I promise to never give up on you!” Wen Xinya exclaimed, filled with a mix of emotions. Do I feel joyous or do I feel bitter? She couldn’t help but feel like her heart was growing heavy.
Si Yiyan’s eyes lit up and he exclaimed, “Repeat yourself!”
Wen Xinya smiled tenderly and repeated, “If You promise to be loyal, I promise to never leave you!”
Si Yiyan appeared even more dashing when he smiled.
