Unexpected Second Chance At Love Book 1 Chapter 341
Down the street from Beauty, the road had turned empty with no cars but a few people still walking. Stationed at the corner of the sidewalk, the lights from a tiny food cart shines for those who want to eat a late night snack.
There were deep friend cough sticks, steam burns, barbecue meat and other dishes pierced with skewers to boil in the hot boiling water. On both sides of the cart, tanghulu are stuck in a straw head attachment.
"Mister, wrap us two tanghulu and four steam buns."
A young couple approaches the cart and place an order. From their appearances, they dressed like they were on their way to a nightclub but wanted something light to eat first.
"Hohoh. Coming right up."
A skinny elderly man with gray hair and a long beard joyfully laughs. He prepares to wrap two steam buns for the young couple that approached his lonely cart.
As he finish wrapping one steam bin, the space between his brows crease into three lines. He turn to look behind him and smiles with his eyes closed.
"Honey, can you help wrap the tanghulu?"
Hearing the elderly man's words, the young couple were in awe. It was nice to see an elderly couple work so hard together even at old age. Both man and woman glance behind the old man and sees the back figure of a woman with a gray bun sitting down.
However, the moment the elderly woman stood up, both individuals were dumbfounded and loss for words.
The elderly woman they had pictured was a small and weak woman, but instead of what they had thought, this elderly woman was tall.
Very, very tall and… bulky…
She wore a yellow knitted sweater with a pink scarf wrapped around her neck. Her long white floral skirt sway with the light breeze that suddenly passes.
Her expression was extremely gloomy with a mole on her chin.
The young couple stare at the elderly woman who is now wrapping the tanghulu. Only God knows what they were thinking as they turn to look at the elderly man next.
If the old man had not mentioned the word 'honey,' they would have mistook her as a man.. a very tall and masculine man.
The young man calls out as his hand stretch out to stop the old man.
"I don't want four steam buns anymore. Give me twenty."
"Hohoh! Young man you are my most generous customer today."
The old man laughs and happily wraps twenty steam buns for the young couple. He takes the two tanghulu from his wife and place them in a bad before handing the food to his customer.
Seeing the elderly man's wrinkled face wrinkle more out of happiness, the young man also smiles and hands over the money.
However, when he glance at the tall elderly woman, he could only let out a sigh.
He takes the bag and turns to leave with his girlfriend.
As they walked three steps away from the food cart, the young woman pout her lips and whispers to him.
"Why did you buy so many? It's going to be a waste."
The young man puts his arm over his girlfriend's shoulder and whispers back to her.
"Babe, didn't you see that old woman? The old man must have been a king in his past life and offended so many people. With an ugly wife like that, life must be very hard for him every day."
Although they had used their most quiet voice, they were unaware that each word they whispered was heard by the old couple.
The elderly man sighs and reach his arm up to pat his tall wife's broad shoulder.
"Honey, don't listen to them. Young people nowadays like to speak nonsense. I still love you like when we were young."
The elderly woman held no change in her expression. She looks down at the skinny old man with the corners of her eyes and part her lips to speak.
"You're quite enjoying this aren't you?"
Instead of an elderly woman's voice, what came out was a deep and manly voice that sends chills to one's ears.
However, the elderly man was not bothered by it at all. He lift a hand to stroke his long gray beard as if thinking of something.
"Honey, I am only playing the part."
He glance at his 'wife' and nod his head approvingly.
"Jiangyu, I think you don't look too bad like this. Maybe you should go on missions wearing that outfit. No one will ever know."
Jiangyu who is disguised as an elderly woman stares at the old man. If it wasn't for them being under cover, he would have already strangled the man to be with his ancestors. His jaw tightens to suppress the temptation of killing and spoke through his gritted teeth.
"Yiqing, you better shut up or I'll really make you turn into an old man."
However, who was Yiqing? He is a carefree spirit wondering this world and did not get offended by Jiangyu's threat. He shrug his shoulders and return to his stool.
Just as he was about to sit down, he caught sight of someone. He doesn't know how long the person had been standing there, but he quickly stood up.
Lu Tian stood on the other side of the food cart with a straight face. However, if one were to take a closer look, one can see a very unnoticeable smile on his face.
He had thought Xu Long and Lin Hui were in a horrible state, but who would have thought these two to be even worse. He sighs inside and wonder why his subordinates and his wife's subordinates are so weird.
Shaking the thought away, he looks at both men.
Hearing his one word, Jiangyu grabs some skewers with meat and dip them into the boiling hot water. His hands move to and from as if working on an order for a customer.
"We captured his woman."
He spoke his words but does not look at his boss and goes into undercover mode.
"She's held behind."
As the meat are finish cooking, he takes each skewer out and drizzles some sauce over it before placing them in a paper plate.
Standing next to his 'elderly wife', Yiqing prepares the utensils and takes the paper plate from her… him. He bags the food and hands it to his 'customer'.
"She won't talk."
Hearing this, Lu Tian shows no change of reaction. He hands the money to Yiqing and takes the bag.
From start to end, their entire conversation was so low that no one can hear them. If you saw them from a far, you would have thought Lu Tian was an ordinary customer waiting for his food.
He turns from the food cart and walks away like was on his way home with dinner.
