Even before Christmas, the streets were already bustling with activity. Some shops had placed a big Christmas tree in front of their doors, hanging little red balls and little toys on the tree. It looked pretty good.
Qu Zhi didn’t have much to do in the afternoon, so she dragged Aunt Hui out to buy clothes.
Two days ago, Chuchu had gone out to play with Chen En. It seemed like they had fought a war. Her sweater had come undone, and there was a big hole in her down jacket.
When Aunt Hui went to pick her up, she was wearing Chen En’s clothes. The clothes were one size bigger than her, and she looked like a little chick stuffed in her nest.
Mrs. Chen felt sorry for not having any other clothes. She was afraid Chuchu would catch a cold and let her wear it first.
Chen En was also very generous. “It’s for you!” This was his favorite piece of clothing. It was warm and not too heavy.
Chuchu felt that Chen En’s clothes were very comfortable, but she did not want his clothes. Her own clothes were much more beautiful.
After walking around for the whole day, Chuchu picked out a light purple down jacket for herself. The material was similar to Chen En’s and was very comfortable. When the time came, the two of them could wear the same clothes.
Then, they went shopping for Sisi’s clothes. These clothes were all small and fluffy. Chuchu couldn’t help but touch them. They’re so soft! It looked a little like her doll’s clothes, but it was more comfortable than its clothes.
The baby’s clothes were much cheaper, so Qu Zhi picked out a lot of them in a short while, and her hands were soon full of bags.
Aunt Hui rushed over to help her, but Qu Zhi shook her head. “It’s a child’s clothes. It’s not heavy.”
She bought Aunt Hui a big coat and a down jacket. When she passed by the scarf stand, she couldn’t help but buy a few more. Now that the weather was getting colder, she must have been feeling cold since she went out to buy groceries so early in the morning.
Aunt Hui was so touched that she didn’t know what to say. She took the bag and said “aiyo” for a long time. She was embarrassed, but she liked it very much.
Qu Zhi had thought countless times that if Huang Qing were a normal mother and treated her better, she would also love her.
However, some people can’t change. No matter how good you are to her, it’s useless. She will treat you like a fool.
Qu Zhi also picked out a white sweater for herself. She didn’t have time to look at gaudy clothes. She didn’t want to look at how they matched.
It was easy for Qu Zhi to get a taxi advertisement, so she could see it on the streets.
The red rolling subtitles had her company’s name on them, along with a string of nice words, ‘an experienced old shop, rich experience, an exquisite gift box, the best choice’. Then, there was the company’s number.
Qu Zhi couldn’t help but laugh. Her company had only been open for a little more than a year, so how could it be ‘old’? this was probably Dong Feng’s little trick.
At this moment, Liang Wen called, “Where are you?” He sounded a little anxious, probably because he couldn’t find her at her company.
“I’m in the department store buying clothes.” At this moment, she smacked her head. Qu Zhi had forgotten to buy him clothes.
“Oh, hurry up and come out. Let’s go eat.” It seemed to be an important meal.
Just as Qu Zhi was about to ask where Sisi was, she heard Sisi’s voice over the phone. “Food, food.”
Fortunately, Liang Wen was in a hurry and didn’t leave this little thing behind.
Chuchu blinked her big eyes. “Do we go out to eat?” Whenever she went out for a meal with her father, she would get to know many new uncles. However, even though she got to know them, most of the time, she would never see these uncles again.
The adults had many, many friends, but it was like a dragonfly touching the water. They would say goodbye after a slight touch.
Unlike her and Chen En, who stuck to each other every day, they were good friends.
As expected, this dinner was not ordinary. There was a host and a big screen, just like at a wedding.
However, when Chuchu turned around, she couldn’t find the word ‘happiness’ anywhere. There was also no beautiful bride and groom, let alone a beautiful bouquet. Most importantly, their room was black and white, which was different from all the weddings she had seen.
“Mommy, who’s getting married?” She asked carefully.
“No, just a dinner.” The one who organized the dinner was the boss of a real estate company. He had just made a fortune and wanted to have a good time.
“All right, friends. Let’s begin.” The music stopped, and it was time for dinner and the performance. The entire place quieted down.
