I am the sister of the school grass - Chapter 8
When Fang Zheng came back, Yunyan thought about a few sentence patterns and was about to write an English composition, but Mother Fang came to call her at the door, “Nan Nan, your brother is back, let’s go out for dinner. You’ve been writing for more than two hours, so it’s time to combine work and rest.”
Fang Yunyan agreed, “Okay, mom, I’ll pack up and go downstairs.”
Fang Zheng happened to go upstairs to put his schoolbag, and when he heard Fang Yunyan call “Mom’, his heart was sour.
“Why does she always call mom and Dad, but she doesn’t call me brother?”
Mother Fang joked, “It’s okay to call you by your name, you are only an hour older than her.”
Fang Zheng worked hard to maintain his status, “Even by a minute, I’m the older brother.”
Mother Fang smiled and said, “It’s useless for you to tell me about this. You will be the elder brother when she becomes willing to call you that.”
Fang Zheng: “…”
Mother Fang warned him, “You are not allowed to threaten Nan Nan, nor are you allowed to bully her.”
Fang Zheng said, “Nan Nan, the nickname you gave her?”
“No, this was originally Nan Nan’s nickname, but now Nan Nan allowed us to call her that,” Mother Fang was a little proud.
Fang Zheng had not seen his mother so happy for a long time.
He glanced at Fang Yunyan’s room, and was actually quite satisfied.
Fang Zheng knew from a young age that he had a twin sister, because they were twins, born on the same day in the same year and month, so his birthday was also his sister’s birthday.
Every time it was his birthday, there was an undisguised pain in his parents’ expressions.
Therefore, after Fang Zheng graduated from elementary school, it was only his birthday.
He asked for it himself, saying that he was already an adult and didn’t need to celebrate like a child.
Dinner was eaten in a private kitchen in the south of the Yangtze River. Sugar taro seedlings, crab flour balls, etc., were fully ordered.
Fang Yunyan was very happy to eat.
She had a sweet taste, but she was not afraid of spicy food. This table was exactly what she liked.
“It’s good if you like it, eat more.”
“Well, thank you mom,” the girl’s voice was soft, and she looked very good when she lowered her eyes to eat, which made Father Fang and Fang Zheng, who had never eaten sweets very much, seem to have more appetite.
Fang Zheng couldn’t help but smile, Xiao Yunyan really fulfilled all his fantasies about his sister.
Well-behaved, soft and cute.
The only downside was that she didn’t call him brother.
The private restaurant had a quiet environment, and the layout was the same as that of the Jiangnan Village.
In the middle of the stream, there were girls in ancient costumes singing songs.
She sang in Wu language, soft and delicate. Although she couldn’t understand the words, she could feel a bit of the charm of Jiangnan women.
Mother Fang knew that Xiao Yunyan could also sing, and asked her with a smile, “Nan Nan, do you know what this is?”
Fang Yunyan nodded, she took a bite of crab noodles, and said, “This is a small tune in Wu dialect, called “Grandma Bridge”, which is mainly about family ties.”
As she spoke, she talked in Wu dialect pronunciations, “This translates to sleepy sleep, which means taking a nap. Just now she sang mud snail thicken crab sauce, which means catching loach, small crab and shrimp.”
Fang Yunyan’s voice was soft, and the soft Wu language came out of her mouth, which made people feel hopeful about her life before.
Father Fang said, “Nan Nan’s Wu dialect is very standard.”
As a dialect and folk art, few people could articulate and pronounce it so clearly, except those who had really studied it carefully.
Father Fang heard that the owner of this private kitchen was from Jiangnan. Father Fang heard more than once from people in the circle that the people invited to sing songs were all famous in the circle.
His daughter Xiao Yunyan could be so proficient in Wu language, and the person who taught Xiao Yunyan to sing before was definitely not an ordinary person.
But Xiao Yunyan didn’t say anything, so it was inconvenient for Father Fang to ask further questions.
It was a happy meal so far.
During this period, except for this little episode, Fang Yunyan had been eating obediently.
Seeing that her son’s eyes had been falling on Xiao Yunyan, she smiled and said, “This afternoon, your father sent some study materials to Nan Nan. Fang Zheng, you should tell your sister about the subjects and the school she is going to in the evening.”
After a pause, she continued, “Don’t say anything messy, mainly let Nan Nan have a preliminary understanding of the high school she is going to go to next.”
In the original book, Mother Fang also said that.
But she didn’t say it in front of Fang Yunyan, but told her son in private.
At that time, she had already noticed that her son didn’t seem to like her sister very much, and speaking in front of her daughter, if Fang Zheng refused, it would make her daughter unhappy.
But privately, she got the same answer.
What Fang Zheng said at that time was, “You can find any tutor, anyone who has graduated from a high school can tell her. I want to play ball with my classmates.”
Now, Fang Yunyan was waiting for Fang Zheng to refuse, anyway, she could bear it.
Even if Fang Zheng refused in person, she would not feel embarrassed.
Thinking of that, Fang Yunyan glanced at Fang Zheng, her eyelashes were very long, and the blink of an eye actually made Fang Zheng raise the thought that she was afraid of being rejected by him.
Fang Zheng didn’t intend to refuse, but he had a condition, “Okay, I can help her, but I can’t help her without getting anything.”
Mother Fang glared at her son.
Fang Zheng smiled at Fang Yunyan, “Call me brother, I’ll go back and give you a lecture, copy the notes for you, and cover you in school.”
