Ex-Husband Wants To Marry Again - Chap 36
Especially his eyes, which were black and bright, just like Xia Yuandan’s eyes, were clear and pure, and very charming.
This child looks quite similar to Xia Yuandan. At first, Jiran thought that Xia Kang’an was Xia Yuandan’s son, but later found out that Xia Yuandan had a brother who was one year older than him and had a similar appearance.
Xia Kang’an is the son left behind by Xia Yuandan’s brother. His brother died shortly after Xia Kang’an was born, and his sister-in-law abandoned him and left the village.
With no one to take care of Xia Kang’an, Xia Yuandan took this poor little nephew under his wing and raised him for three and a half years.
However, after observing him for these few days, Jiran noticed another person’s shadow on Xia Kang’an.
Moreover, it gave him an extremely familiar feeling, as if he had seen that person before.
When he saw Xia Kang’an’s smile today, he suddenly remembered Yun Ziqiu.
Xia Kang’an and Yun Ziqiu are similar in appearance, but they look too much like Xia Yuandan, making it difficult for him to recognize at first.
This discovery made Jiran’s gaze towards Xia Kang’an become complicated.
Could it be that Xia Yuandan’s brother had a relationship with Yun Ziqiu?
But Xia Yuandan said that Kang’an was born to his brother and sister-in-law, so logically, this should not be possible.
He must be overthinking things!
After suppressing his doubts in his heart, Jiran snapped out of his thoughts and noticed that Xia Kang’an was no longer clinging to Xia Yuandan, but playing with the golden retriever in the yard.
“Potato, come and fetch the ball!”
Xia Kang’an commanded Potato to fetch the ball.
Looking at the small figure in the courtyard, Ji Ran suddenly felt that having a child would be nice.
When Xia Yuandan brought out the dishes and saw Ji Ran staring at Xia Kang’an without turning his eyes, there was a loving light in his eyes.
“Arhan, what are your plans for the future? Will you continue to be with Ye Linghan?”
“No!” Ji Ran shook his head and looked at the scenery in the distance.
There is too much beauty in this world, why waste time on love.
“But, will Ye Linghan let you go?”
Although Xia Yuandan had not lived in Kyoto for a long time, he knew Ye Linghan’s style very well.
This high and mighty, domineering young master would not let Ji Ran go.
If he could let him go, he would not have forced Ji Ran into such a situation.
“It’s just his conquering desire at work. He has a beautiful woman by his side, I’ll hide for a while, and he’ll soon forget about me.”
Ji Ran remembered the scene when Gan Rui helped him leave when he was in heat. The praised young master of the Gan family should not want him to return to Ye Linghan’s side.
This is the best way. He never wants to see Ye Linghan again in his life.
Days passed, and there was suddenly no news from Kyoto.
It seems that Ye Linghan has lost interest in him.
Ji Ran’s originally tense mood gradually relaxed.
Life in the village was very comfortable. After picking and frying tea every day, it was time to drink tea and chat in the courtyard.
Ji Ran touched his slightly plump waist and felt that he had gained weight.
“Arhan, it’s time to eat!”
On New Year’s Day, Xia Yuandan brought two bowls of rice and placed them on the table in the yard. The chicken and vegetable stew were both homely dishes, but when cooked by Xia Yuandan, they tasted even better than the signature dishes of a five-star hotel.
Ji Ran walked over smelling the fragrance and smiled at him, “I have to trouble you to cook for me again.”
“We are classmates, don’t be so polite with me,” Xia Yuandan smiled, revealing a cute pair of tiger teeth.
When Ji Ran went to wash his hands, Xia Yuandan went outside to call Xia Kang’an for dinner. The two came into the yard with joy, and Xia Kang’an went to wash his hands and face while the dog, Potato, crouched beside him waiting.
After Xia Kang’an finished washing his hands, Potato followed him to the stone table. During meals, Xia Kang’an’s custom was to take a bite and then throw a bite to Potato.
“Potato, eat slowly!” Xia Kang’an’s mouth was full of bread, and his speech was unclear. His cheeks were bulging like a squirrel with food in its mouth.
Ji Ran couldn’t help but smile, and she touched his upturned nose, “You should also eat slowly and not choke!”
Xia Kang’an smiled and his eyes curved, looking particularly cute.
After dinner, Ji Ran helped Xia Yuandan clean up the dishes while Xia Kang’an played with Potato in the yard. The glow of the sunset made the yard especially warm and harmonious, with distant mountains looming and laughter in the yard.
“Potato, Potato, give me the ball quickly!” Xia Kang’an reached out his small hand to catch the ball given by Potato. But before he could catch it, Potato let it go, and the ball rolled outside the door.
Xia Kang’an ran after the ball with his short legs, but the ball hit a pair of black and shiny shoes and stopped rolling.
Someone bent down, revealing a well-defined hand that picked up the ball. Xia Kang’an looked up and saw a tall and handsome man standing in front of him.”
The man held the ball in his hand, with a long and meaningful smile on his lips, and his black eyes exuded a distant chill.
Xia Kang’an took a step back and said cautiously, “Uncle, that’s my ball!”
Ye Linghan glanced at the little boy in front of him, then looked towards the open courtyard door. He curved his lips and smiled slightly, “Little friend, does Ji Ran live here?”
“Yes!” Xia Kang’an blinked his innocent big eyes and asked with a smile, “Uncle, are you a friend of Uncle Ji?”
Ye Linghan smiled without answering, bent down to pick him up, and walked towards the courtyard.
Ji Ran was picking tea leaves when he suddenly heard footsteps behind him, followed by the familiar scent of pheromones.
The scent was highly invasive and so familiar that it made his scalp tingle.
