Hey, Don't Be Unruly! - 12
Chapter 12 – We are not familiar
While listening to the phone, Yin Ze moved to the side. Gao Yu Lan’s cough finally stopped and she breathed slowly. She could not hear clearly what Yin Ze was talking about and could only carefully study his expression. Seeing that his expression did not change and neither did he look over at her, so there should not be any problem, right?
Following her train of thought, she quickly ate her meal seriously. The meal is so delicious, it will be a loss if she does not eat and in case the matter is exposed, at least she had eaten a full meal.
A short while later, Yin Ze came back to continue with his meal and as usual, he talked and smiled without mentioning anything about the insurance matter. Gao Yu Lan felt relieved and because she felt guilty, she did not show her disagreement nor refuted Yin Ze when he teased her. As a result, the group of people eventually finished their meal smoothly and harmoniously.
After the meal, the restaurant staff slowly came to work, one after the other and the kitchen started to become busy. Gao Yu Lan stayed there for a long time and found it interesting to watch the staff working busily in the magnificent kitchen. Later, an old customer came in to sit in the kitchen and watch the chef prepare the dinner that he had ordered earlier. He mentioned that today, he had invited a distinguished guest to dinner and had specially selected this restaurant. Yin Ze generously allowed him to sit in the kitchen to watch them work and the chef chatted with him while working. The atmosphere was extremely good.
She looked on and felt in her heart that the restaurant was really special. The kitchen was larger than her rented apartment, the chef and customers were like friends and the customers were even allowed to watch the cooking process which was a brilliant way of attracting business.
When she reached home that day, she deliberately went online to check on Food Restaurant and was shocked. Yin Ze’s restaurant is well-known and many diners recommended the place. The reasons for their recommendations vary from delicious food, fresh ingredients, ability to cater to any food orders, ability to serve delicious dishes not available in other restaurants, a good environment, good service, and a unique modern place. On the same day, people who visited the organic farm could return in the afternoon to enjoy the vegetables that they had picked themselves. Another reason the restaurant was recommended is that the Boss is very handsome and is a good conversationalist.
Hey…….which part of him is handsome? Well, he can be considered pleasing to the eye but who said he is good at holding conversations? Obviously, his character is not good and he likes to tease girls.
On one side, Gao Yu Lan silently disagreed but on the other, she seriously searched and carefully read every comment. There were also some photos of Yin Ze with his customers and of course, the customers were women. Gao Yu Lan counted and 99% of his customers who praised him were females. At the bottom, there was a reply that said…….just to meet the Boss, the person will try out this restaurant even if it is extremely expensive and this person is also a female.
Gao Yu Lan felt disdain for Yin Ze. Is this guy selling food or selling sex?
Gao Yu Lan read a few more pages and found netizens had also criticized the restaurant complaining that the food was expensive and it was similar to robbery. Just for a meal, reservations had to be made a few months in advance, it was deliberate deceit and very annoying. It also said that the restaurant concept was hyped, too flashy and only fools would patronize the restaurants. After Gao Yu Lan finished reading the criticism, she sighed and felt that Yin Ze is very clever. Every complaint is a selling point.
Gao Yu Lan had worked in the line of market planning for a few years and had to admire Yin Ze’s excellent business acumen. Speculation on the restaurant concept is good, whether they are praises or criticism and the diners’ curiosity has been fully stirred up. Coupled with the joint operation of the farm and restaurant supporting each other, it is not surprising that Yin Ze’s entrepreneurship is a success.
But no matter how clever he is or how good he is to his family, Gao Yu Lan still felt she hated the man. Who told him to tease her every time he sees her and there is only one word to describe him……frivolous.
Frivolous man is the most unreliable and she should not get close to him.
Gao Yu Lan had made up her mind but Yin Ze did not seem to have any intention to let her go. Well, it should be said that the Yin Family did not seem to have any intention to let her go.
Two days later, Gao Yu Lan received a call from Yin Ning. She asked Gao Yu Lan whether she was busy and whether she had already found a job. Gao Yu Lan who was not used to telling lies, just said that she was still idling at home. So Yin Ning invited her over to her shop for a chat as business was so poor that there was not even a single customer and it was boring.
Gao Yu Lan felt it was not nice to refuse and in fact, she also felt bored at home. So after thinking for a while, she went over and chatted for the whole afternoon. When she returned home, she felt she wanted to do this again as she had enjoyed herself and was very happy. After thinking for a moment, she wondered why she can get on so well with the elder sister but feel otherwise with the younger brother. Fortunately, she will not meet that despicable younger brother when she goes to the shop to sit.
With such thoughts in her head, two days passed by peacefully, and then the despicable brother came looking for her.
That day Gao Yu Lan was still wearing her pajamas with a large hairpin randomly clipped on her hair. With a drab and disheveled appearance, she sat in front of the computer to send out her resumes. Very quickly she had sent off her resumes and was sitting in a daze, contemplating whether she should go to look for Yin Ning when she heard someone knocking on her door.
Outside the door, Niu Niu was shouting in her crisp child voice. “Sister, I’ve come!”
Gao Yu Lan jumped with fright. How could Niu Niu be here? A thought flashed through her mind, Yin Ning must have brought her and she quickly ran to open the door. Once the door was opened, she saw Yin Ze carrying Niu Niu in his arms and Niu Niu was carrying Mantou. The three were grinning at her.
Yin Ze walked in with big strides and lowered Niu Niu on the ground. Then as if by magic, he pulled out a little pink bag from behind his shoulder and put the pink bag into Niu Niu’s hands.
“My sister has something to do today and left Niu Niu with me but suddenly something came up and I have to deal with it urgently. Niu Niu said she wants to come here, so can you take her in?”
Gao Yu Lan was dumbstruck. When did her friendship with the Yin Family progress so fast and so deeply that they could completely trust her? She looked down at Niu Niu and Mantou who were watching her with their big watery eyes and they looked so pitiful and so adorable that she could not bring herself to say ‘No’ to them.
Yin Ze did not seem to have any intention to let her refuse him. Without waiting for her answer, he lowered his head to tell Niu Niu to behave then told Mantou not to cause any trouble then he turned around and walked out.
In her heart, Gao Yu Lan rebuked him that Mantou would not be able to understand his words and at the same time, she followed him to the door. She lowered her voice and said. “Wait a minute, next time you can’t just bring them over like this. What if I have something to do and can’t take care of them?”
“Then do you have anything to do?”
“Well, not this time.”
“Then it’s settled. Take good care of my family’s two precious babies, ah.” Yin Ze said with the tone of a lord.
“I don’t mean ‘now’, I mean ‘in the future’.” Gao Yu Lan felt she had to make herself clear.
“We’ll talk about the future later. I would like to discuss with you our future but today I really don’t have the time.”
Not serious again! !……
Gao Yu Lan glared at him. “When are you coming to pick them up?”
“Whoever finishes first will come to pick them up.” Yin Ze finished speaking, swept a glance over Gao Yu Lan from head to toe and smiled. “Your way of dressing is very pleasing to the eyes.” He threw an amorous glance over at her then turned around and walked away while whistling.
She looked down at herself, suddenly she became aware that she was still in her pajamas with her hair still in a mess……..
Pleasing to the eye? Pleasing, his head!
Gao Yu Lan shut the door angrily and went back into the house. She saw the five-year-old child had opened her bag, laid out the toys all over the place, and was playing ‘house’ with Mantou.
Sitting by the side, Mantou was grinning foolishly with its tongue hanging out and seemed to be quite cooperative. Niu Niu pulled Gao Yu Lan to play together with her and wanted to play at operating a restaurant selling food to Mantou.
Niu Niu’s child-talk made Gao Yu Lan laughed and was very cooperative playing together with the child. Gao Yu Lan watched as she fried vegetables and rice then put the little plate in front of Mantou and made Mantou pay for the food. Mantou bowed its head, sniffed the plate and then picked it up in its mouth and ran off.
“Hey! You dare to eat without paying! Come back!” Niu Niu chased crazily after Mantou and Gao Yu Lan rolled on the floor in laughter.
Niu Niu and Mantou spent the whole afternoon in her home and turned it upside down. Initially, Gao Yu Lan laughed loudly, then later she barely smiled and in the end, she could not smile anymore. When finally Yin Ze came to pick up the two precious babies, Gao Yu Lan looked at him as if she saw the Savior.
The Savior said that she had worked hard and wanted to reward her with a meal. Suddenly she realized that she really deserved the meal and so she followed them. That night, on reaching home after a satisfying meal, she did some analysis……no, no…… it looks like Yin Ze is becoming more familiar with her, no, no………it’s better for her to keep a distance from him.
A few days later, Yin Ze called again. “Lan Lan, today my Sister has taken Niu Niu out to play. I’m unable to get away, can you pick up Mantou from Food Restaurant?”
Gao Yu Lan felt a gush of resentment rushed up to her chest and she righteously refused. “Mr. Yin, I’m busy with something too. Your dog is in the restaurant with so many employees around, why can’t they help to look after it? And I’m not familiar with you to the extent that I should help you to take care of your pet.”
“Are you refusing me?” Yin Ze’s voice did not sound very happy.
Gao Yu Lan boldly and loudly said. “That’s right!”
“I’ve said, we are not familiar with each other!”
“You are not familiar with me?” Yin Ze started to recount her past misdeeds. “That time when you grabbed Mantou home with you, why didn’t you think you were not familiar with me?”
“That…….that was the past. I was drunk and it has nothing to do with being unfamiliar with you.”
“Okay, we will not talk about the past, then we talk about something current. That time you gave my phone number to your friend and told her to sell insurance to me, why didn’t you think you were not familiar with me?”
Gao Yu Lan was choked on her saliva and erupted into a series of mad coughs. So Chen Ruo Yu had eventually betrayed her!
“Even if you cough, it will be useless. Let me tell you, Mantou is sick and if you abandon it and ignore it, I’ll make you pay for the medical expenses you owe me. Anyway, I still have the evidence with me. Within half an hour, if you don’t reach the restaurant, I’ll call your friend who is selling insurance and tell her you tried to grab a man and as a result crippled him.”
Gao Yu Lan could not cough anymore. This rogue is too much! Actually, who is the owner of the dog, Mantou? How come he said she is the one ignoring it? Also, he wants to claim medical expenses from her but she did not even claim from him for his fraud! And, and, what did he mean by grabbing a man until the man was crippled? It sounded so ambiguous……..
She was about to speak but Yin Ze did not give her the opportunity. On the other side, he loudly snorted and said. “You dare to claim you’re not familiar with me? Huh!…….you can try!”
