She rested her hand on the table, her nose right above the food. The look of her drooling over the food was funny.
“I’m drooling, too!” Huo Yunshen said.
“Then eat up,” Xu Xiyan smiled and got three servings of pork congee for them.
“Do you have to go to the set today?” Huo Yunshen asked as they began eating.
“Yes, in the afternoon,” Xu Xiyan replied. “That’s why I have time to accompany Ying Bao in the morning.”
“Yay!” Ying Bao smiled when she heard her mum had spare time, and started to count the things she wanted to do. “I want to see the thigor, and the drolpin, and the mumkiy!”
“What did she just say?” Huo Yunshen asked.
“She said she wanted to see the tiger, dolphin, and monkey,” Xu Xiyan explained.
Does she want to go to the zoo or the aquarium?
Even a full day won’t fit that schedule…
“Then you’d better hurry up and finish your food,” Xu Xiyan said, rubbing Ying Bao’s head.
“Is Uncle Dimple going too?” Ying Bao asked, tilting her head to the side. “Let’s bring Uncle Dimple! If we leave him alone, he’ll be lonely.”
Sure would… Huo Yunshen nodded in his head. What a considerate little girl Ying Bao is.
Xu Xiyan had no idea where Ying Bao had learned the word “lonely” from.
“Mr. Huo, are you…” asked Xu Xiyan, lifting her head to look at him.
“I’m free.” Huo Yunshen didn’t even wait for Xu Xiyan to finish her question.
As long as I’m with you, I’ll always be free.
“Oh.. that’s good then. Do you want to go to the zoo with us?”
“Of course,” Huo Yunshen replied with a smile.
They finished their breakfast and headed straight towards Peijing’s National Zoo after packing their stuff.
Peijing’s National Zoo was usually crowded, holiday or not. Yet when they arrived, there was no line at the ticket booth.
A few guards in dark uniform stood outside the gate where a huge notice hung on it.
“Maintenance In Progress” was written on the notice board.
“Oh no, the zoo is closed today,” Xu Xiyan lowered her head and told Ying Bao. “Looks like we don’t get to see the tiger and monkey today.”
“Why are they closed?” Ying Bao gripped the metal gate and pouted. “I want to play!”
Xu Xiyan understood what her daughter was feeling at that moment. She had been waiting to go to the zoo for quite a long time. And now, when they were already there, the zoo was closed.
“Maybe the tigers and the monkeys are still sleeping,” Xu Xiyan crouched down and said. “Let’s come another day, okay? I will pre-book the tickets next time.”
Ying Bao looked at her mother with her big dark eyes, as if she was about to cry.
I finally got the chance to come to the zoo with mummy and Uncle Dimple, why are the monkeys and tiggers sleeping? Why aren’t they awake?
It’s bad to oversleep…
