Xie Yi’s ID was still with Xie Quan. After lunch, Xie Quan took Xie Yi’s pass and went to the Xie house. Xie Yi’s family lived in a quiet and affluent area because of Xie Quan’s father’s assets, and lived in a three-story villa with a garden. Xie Quan came here on his first day in Noel City, and the purpose then was to recognize his relatives.
A person who arrived in a new city needed a letter of introduction from a local resident in order to handle a series of things such as renting an apartment. If he had a job, he could ask the employer to issue a letter of introduction. If there were no relatives, they could ask your friends, and of course, there were workshops on the internet that specialized in issuing letters of introduction.
This was why Xie Quan chose to take the identity of someone else at the beginning and came forward to identify relatives afterwards.
Ringing the doorbell, the robot butler came over from the garden. “Hello, who are you looking for?”
“I’m looking for Xie Yi.”
“Okay, please wait for a moment.”
Xie Yi was preparing to go out at this time. When he received the notice, he came out wearing a well-matched small suit, and when he saw Xie Quan, he said with an unhappy face, “How dare you come here! Last time you left me alone, I have not yet settled the score with you!”
What score? Xie Quan clearly remembered that when he left, Xie Yi should still be in a good mood? Xie Quan smiled without a temper. “I came to return your things.” Then, he took out the pass from his backpack. “Thank you.”
Xie Yi snatched the pass and put it in his pocket, narrowed his eyes, and raised his chin arrogantly. “Did you see the museum? I’ve been to that place I don’t know how many times, it’s not interesting at all, but for you, it must be an eye-opener.”
Hearing Xie Yi’s words, sincere envy rose in Xie Quan’s heart. “That’s great, you’re so lucky.”
“…” Xie Yi coughed lightly. “It’s just like that, what’s the big deal? I have also been to many museums. Our school museum can be luxurious, with the collection of ancient Earth’s original seeds, but at the museum, you still have to understand the things inside, or else you won’t know anything and miss the fun.”
At that moment, Xie Dongye heard voices in the room and asked, “Xiao Yi? Who are you talking to?” While saying that, he came out and saw Xie Quan. He froze for a moment and walked up and said with some surprise, “Xiao Quan, what brings you here?”
And they actually know each other?
Xie Quan replied nicely, “I came to return my cousin’s things.”
“…” Xie Dongye heard the name “cousin”, saw Xie Quan’s humble dress, and saw Xie Yi’s body covered with big brands, the guilt in his heart became more obvious. He did not ask Xie Quan how he met Xie Yi, but invited, “Right, Xiao Quan, we are going out to dinner. You should also join.”
There had been a lot of invitations for him to eat recently.
Xie Quan waved his hand and refused, “Thank you, Uncle, but no need.”
Xie Dongye thought Xie Quan was embarrassed and encouraged him, “It’s okay, we haven’t eaten together as a family. You and Xiao Yi can also talk more.”
Xie Yi also said, “Can you stop being so motherly? We’re going to Vicciuto today, the chef there has cooked for the royal family, you don’t usually have the chance to eat.”
A chef who cooks for the royal family? Why does this sound like something I’ve heard before?
Xie Quan was searching in his head when Xie Yi already said without refusal, “Well, don’t delay, we’ll be late.”
Xie Dongye hurriedly nodded. “Yes, yes, your aunt first went over to the neighborhood shopping, then will meet us there, I’ll drive. Xiao Quan, let’s go together.”
“…” After all, it was the identity of someone else’s poor nephew, Xie Quan also had to nod his head. Just be good, if it arouses suspicion, it won’t be good.
It was not very far from Xie Dongye’s house to Vicciuto, about a twenty-minute drive. The restaurant did look very luxurious and tasteful. In the middle of a lake was a shell-shaped two-story gray and white building, with plain white tables and chairs in the outermost circle, allowing guests to dine in the natural scenery.
Xie Dongye’s wife, Janice, had long been seated at a reserved seat and was leisurely chatting with her little sister on the terminal. When she heard the commotion and knew it was her husband and son who had arrived, she looked up and her face quickly darkened.
How shameless was this boy to join in?
Xie Dongye had explained to the waiter to add an extra seat. As soon as he turned around, he received his wife’s glare. He hurriedly explained, “When I went out, I happened to meet Xiao Quan and suggested having a meal together, usually there is not much opportunity.”
Since everyone had come, Janice could not drive him out. So she said with a smile, “Since you’re here, sit down.” Looking at Xie Quan’s outfit, which was out of place in this environment, Janice felt as if everyone next to her was looking this way.
She looked at Xie Quan sitting next to Xie Yi and the window showed the sunset’s afterglow shining on Xie Quan’s body. Even if he was dressed simply, he was still like a person in a painting. In contrast, the appearance of her child looked even darker and irrelevant. She laughed. “Xiao Quan, why did you go to our house today?” It was not to ask for money, right?
Xie Quan had to say it again, “I went to return my cousin’s things.”
Janice frowned. “How do you know each other? Why did Xiao Yi lend you something?” When Xie Quan found them earlier, Xie Yi was out, so he didn’t see him.
Xie Quan heard and pondered. How did they meet… Where should this story start?
Xie Yi kicked him under the table and said first, “I happened to run into him when I went shopping around the apartment. Mommy, why do you ask so much?”
He could not let Janice know that he was secretly dating Márquez, even if they had broken up now, if she found out, his mom would definitely scold him to death.
Janice spoiled her omega son, so she said intimately, “I’m not curious how you two children play together, but you should not bother people, Xiao Quan. Xiao Quan and you are not the same. If you take up his day, how is he supposed to work to earn money?” She asked Xie Quan, “You’ve been in Noel City for a while, have you found a job yet?”
Xie Quan shook his head honestly.
When Xie Dongye heard that, he asked, “What does Xiao Quan want to do? Why don’t I help you look into it?”
Janice frowned unhappily.
How could Xie Quan really go to work? If Xie Dongye had really looked for him then, it would have been troublesome instead.
Xie Quan shifted his gaze from the shiny tableware on the table to Xie Dongye, his eyes were as pure and clear as ever. “Don’t worry about it, I’ll find something.”
Janice was unhappy to hear Xie Dongye say he wanted to help. When she heard Xie Quan refuse, she was still unhappy. She laughed lightly, the words prickling with thorns. “Xiao Quan, since your uncle wants to help you, you do not have to be polite. This is not like the small place you stayed before. There are many talented people, and to be honest, with your education… I think you should let your uncle first find you a front desk clerical job. One that does not value ability, and only looks for decent appearance.”
At this time, the waiter came over to order food.
In these kinds of high-level restaurants, they did not use robots to order food, and pursued the ultimate service. The choice of human waiters were all handsome and beautiful. Those in charge of receiving orders were the best of the best. This one had a tall and robust body, sword eyebrows and starry eyes, with brow bones and a nose as beautiful as a sculpture.
The polished leather shoes snapped and stood next to Xie Quan. Wearing a suit vest, he was not like a waiter, but like a wealthy family’s son who came here to eat.
“Hello, what would you like to eat?” He stood next to Xie Quan, but his gaze looked at Janice across the table with a bit of unpleasantness.
And at this time, Xie Quan listened to this clear and bright voice but with a copy of his own unique heavy pressure. He turned his head and his eyes filled with a bit of surprise.
Wasn’t this his nosy neighbor, Ji Ming? How did he come here to work as a waiter?
