Xiao Tieniu finally came out after Jing Xi kept persuading him.
“Don’t worry, they are all good people. You can call him Uncle Treeleaf, and she’s Auntie Huo.”
Jing Xi hugged Xiao Tieniu in her arms and introduced them.
Both Ye Xun and Huo Sanyan were thinking the same thing when they saw the woman hug her son.
If both Jing Xi and Little Apple were still alive, they would be looking at that mother and son hugging each other.
Thinking of the deceased worsened their moods.
The atmosphere became awkward, and it was Lan Yi who broke the silence.
“Mr. Ye, Miss Huo, please, have a seat. I’ll go and prepare some tea,” Lan Yi said.
“Thank you,” both of the adults said and sat down.
Ye Xun then turned his attention to Little Grape and opened his arms.
“Little Grape, come here. Let me take a look at you.”
Little Grape tilted his head and declined. “Didn’t you just see me?”
“What? Can’t I hug you?”
“No! I want to play with Niuniu. Don’t disturb us!” Little Grape rejected once again.
Ye Xun had no idea whether he should feel sad or laugh.
The little kid had already completely abandoned him.
Seeing that Little Grape did not want to play with him, Ye Xun turned around and began to talk to Lan Yi.
“Niuniu, let’s continue,” Little Grape said.
“Go on,” Jing Xi encouraged her son. “They won’t hurt you, I promise.”
Since Jing Xi decided that it would be a bad idea to join in on Ye Xun and Lan Yi’s conversation, she went back into the kitchen and closed the glass door behind her.
Ye Xun took a peek at Jing Xi and turned back to ask Lan Yi about her.
“Lan Yi, when did the palace hire her? Is it just me, or does she look a lot like Jing Xi?”
“Just a few days ago,” Lan Yi replied. “She made an excellent impression and I hired her without giving it any thought. Now that you mention it, I might’ve just hired her because she looks so much like the queen…”
Lan Yi also realized that it might also be the reason why she was fond of Jin Xiaoxi.
“Did the boss meet her? What did he say?” Ye Xun asked, wondering what would happen if Huo Yunshen met her in the palace.
“He was angry at first and fired her,” Lan Yi said. “She wouldn’t be back if the little prince was not sick.”
Ye Xun nodded in agreement. He could imagine what the impact would be for Huo Yunshen to see the back of someone he missed dearly if it turned out to not be that person.
Ye Xun and Huo Sanyan stayed for another hour before leaving for the palace.
Ye Xun was in the driver seat while Huo Sanyan rode shotgun.
“Not only does she look like her, but she even gave off the same feeling…” Ye Xun pondered. “How is that even possible?”
“I don’t know. But I do know that coincidence does exist,” Huo Sanyan said.
