Chapter 70: The Little Genius
As the four or five children in front of her, aged between three to five, poured over, Huo Xiaoxiao’s eyes widened with despair. She was too busy to pay attention to what Xu Xinyi was saying to these real children.
She regretted it now; she regretted it so much.
Why did she risk being nagged for days to follow Huo Suicheng here?
Wasn’t it good to play at home by herself?
With so many children, her brain was going to explode with the noise.
“Well, you have to help your aunt take care of Xiaoxiao, okay?”
“What a good boy!”
Xu Xinyi looked at the little boy sitting in the corner of the sofa, engrossed with the Rubik’s Cube. She twisted her eyebrows. “Yi Qian, come here!”
“Oh,” the little boy in the corner mouthed but remained seated without moving. Only his eyes looked over.
“What are you doing? Come here and meet this little sister. Her name is Huo Xiaoxiao. As the brother, take good care of her, got it?”
Yi Qian lowered his eyelids and couldn’t seem to raise any energy. He lazily responded, “Got it.”
Xu Xinyi saw his tired and lazy attitude. She really wanted to know why her little demon was so popular.
Having a son was worry-free. He acted like a little adult all day, without any youthful energy.
It was better to be a girl.
Thinking of this, her face was full of laughter. She spoke to Huo Xiaoxiao, “Xiaoxiao, he is Auniet’s son, Yi Qian. You can play here. If you want anything, you can tell Yi Qian or these sisters. If someone bullies you, you can tell your auntie, okay?”
Huo Xiaoxiao nodded.
“Then auntie will go out first. Have fun.” With another squeeze of Huo Xiaoxiao’s baby cheeks, she left the room.
Once Xu Xinyi was out, Yi Qian turned back to concentrate on tinkering with his Rubik’s Cube, using his face and actions to show that he was not the same kind of person as the other children in this room.
Huo Xiaoxiao almost suffocated when she looked at the blocks and horses that the children were playing with, as well as the cartoons on TV.
She had never been so childish at home.
As soon as she spotted another Rubik’s cube in front of Yi Qian, Huo Xiaoxiao jumped off the couch and walked over.
Yi Qian looked up and saw her.
“Can I play with this?”
Huo Xiaoxiao didn’t take the Rubik’s Cube but looked at Yi Qian with great interest.
Children were usually adorable, but Yi Qian, who inherited all the good qualities of Yi Yang and Xu Xinyi, could not be described as cute.
Huo Xiaoxiao had basically never met children before. It was even her first time seeing a child as exquisite as Yi Qian.
She still had an eighteen-year-old princess living in her heart, so she couldn’t help but pinch him.
Yi Qian stopped playing with the Rubik’s cube in his hand and looked up at her coldly.
She had tugged so hard that he had to open his mouth, “Let go.”
Huo Xiaoxiao not only didn’t let go, but she also squeezed him with her other hand.
The little kid was good at everything but had a bad personality.
Yi Qian reached out without saying a word and knocked Huo Xiaoxiao’s ‘evil’ hand away. He bowed his head and continued to play with the Rubik’s Cube, secluding himself from the world.
“…” This little brat’s temper was quite big.
Huo Xiaoxiao looked at the Rubik’s Cube in his hand.
In the end, he was still young and couldn’t put it all together.
After thinking about it, she picked up another Rubik’s Cube and skillfully turned it around with her fingertips.
Perhaps it was because her spinning frequency became faster and faster, she had attracted Yi Qian’s attention. When she was about to finish, his eyes were firmly glued to her cube.
Soon, a complete Rubik’s Cube was put together by Huo Xiaoxiao.
Huo Xiaoxiao looked at the little kid’s shocked appearance and his open mouth.
Anyway, she had been playing for a while, and the Rubik’s Cube was nothing new for her.
From a full-ranked boss to a newbie, she finally had a chance to show off.
She had been suffocated for two years.
“Want to learn?”
Yi Qian’s eyes were hesitant.
“As long as you let me touch you, I will teach you.” Huo Xiaoxiao shamefully swayed her completed Rubik’s Cube in front of Yi Qian.
Yi Qian blinked. After repeated hesitation, he eventually showed his naivety and shyness.
Still, he was calm and relaxed, and his soft child’s voice had a milkiness to it. “Okay, but… only touch for a minute.”
“Yes!” Huo Xiaoxiao placed her hands on his soft cheeks.
This soft touch was so fun.
The child’s face gradually reddened as the little girl touched his cheeks. He counted in his mind and stopped when he reached sixty.
“Done! You can’t touch me anymore! ”
“Let me touch it for another minute, or I won’t teach you.”
Yi Qian refuted, “You…”
Huo Xiaoxiao educated him seriously. “Boys should learn to protect themselves outside, and they can’t trust others too much. Understand?”
