Chapter 643: Mother And Daughter Reunite (1)
Qin Zhiyuan said, “Si Si is right. I finally have a chance to do something for my mother, you must not stop me. I’m giving this house to you. In the future, you can stay here if you like, but if you are afraid to live alone, you can stay at our house. You and Si Si attend the same school, so you can go to school together.”
“But…” Gu Qingyao hesitated. She was not short of money to buy the house. She really did not want to use Qin Zhiyuan’s money to buy the house.
“Uncle Qin, although I’m here alone, I made adequate preparations before I came. I’m well aware of the expenditures involved in living overseas. So you don’t need to worry about whether I can afford a house. If I didn’t have enough money, I would not have insisted on buying a house in the first place. I…”
Qin Zhiyuan waved her aside with a smile. “I know. I can tell that you’re not like the average girl. I can tell from your behavior that you have the financial means. But that has nothing to do with me. I’m just treating you like my daughter. Since I know you’re related to my mother, I’m just taking care of you.
“No matter what, it’s a fact that you helped my parents in China. Just take it as my thanks and don’t quibble with me. This house is nothing to me. You must not refuse a gift from an elder. The house is yours. I have some other matters to deal with. Si Si will stay here to keep you company.”
And with that, Qin Zhiyuan turned and left.
Gu Qingyao: “…”
Never mind. Qin Zhiyuan was a filial son who had not seen his parents for many years. Now that he had encountered his mother’s young disciple, it was understandable that he wanted to give her a present.
In the future, there would be a chance for her to help the Qin family in return!
Qin Si accompanied Gu Qingyao to the hotel to move her luggage. The house was very new and some of the furniture was new. Someone had already cleaned it, so Gu Qingyao could move straight in.
Most of her luggage was in her interspace, so she did not need to pack much. When she was done, she saw that all the utensils in the kitchen were new and had been washed. There were all kinds of food in the fridge. Gu Qingyao smiled. “I’ll cook a meal and give you a treat!”
Qin Si’s eyes lit up. “You can cook?”
Gu Qingyao was amused. “Of course I can cook. I often cook at home. It’s difficult for you to have a proper Chinese meal here, right? I’ll give you a treat.”
Gu Qingyao was not lying. Although the Qin family had a chef that specialized in Chinese cuisine, this was a foreign country after all. At that time, very few Chinese went overseas.
Also, even if they managed to hire a chef, they had to use foreign sauces and condiments. These things could not be obtained as conveniently as they could in China.
Gu Qingyao thought about how scarce resources were in China and did not know what to say.
Anyway, she had plenty of things, and they were all authentic.
Qin Si was delighted. Gu Qingyao had managed to come overseas and was unfazed by the prosperity here. She had a different air, like that of a rich young lady.
She assumed that, like her, she had been doted on and did not know how to do anything! She had not expected her to be able to cook.
Qin Si was truly a pampered young lady. In the Qin family, servants attended to her every need. She really did not know how to do such things.
Qin Si did not know how to cook, so Gu Qingyao stopped her from entering the kitchen. There were plenty of ingredients in the fridge. Gu Qingyao used some of those and supplemented them with other ingredients from her interspace. She used seasonings that she had brought in her interspace. Soon, a wonderful aroma wafted from the kitchen.
