Chapter 3 - Beloved Little Treasure

Early morning, Yuan Gun Gun rubbed her eyes and opened her eyes. She sat up on the bed.

Last night Yuan Gun Gun didn’t sleep in her bedroom. She remembered a maid gave her a delicious candy, she met a big white dog with beautiful violet eyes and a handsome uncle.

Yuan Gun Gun scratched her head, got out of bed and she walked to the bathroom. Her mummy told her after she opened her eyes in the morning, she needed to get out of bed, brush her teeth and wash her face.

In the master bedroom, Qiu Li Luo snuck out of bed and tiptoed to Yuan Gun Gun’s room to see if Yuan Gun Gun was awake.

Yuan Gun Gun stood in front of the sink that was too high for her to reach. She didn’t know how to brush and wash her face if she couldn’t reach the tap.

Qiu Li Luo smiled at the chubby Yuan Gun Gun jumping up and down in front of the sink.

‘Sweetheart, what are you doing?’ Qiu Li Luo asked.

Yuan Gun Gun was startled by another person’s voice. She turned around and thought she saw a goddess.

‘Big sister, are you a goddess?’ Yuan Gun Gun asked.

Qiu Li Luo picked up Yuan Gun Gun, and smiled at Yuan Gun Gun’s chubby face.

‘Aunty is the mistress of this mansion,’ Qiu Li Luo said.

‘Big sister, you can call me Yuan Gun Gun,’ Yuan Gun Gun said.

Qiu Li Luo thought Yuan Gun Gun was an adorable name for an adorable little girl.

‘Gun Gun, I’m not big sister,’ Qiu Li Luo said. ‘Call me aunty Li. Gun Gun, do you want to brush your teeth and wash your face?’

‘Yes aunty Li,’ Yuan Gun Gun said. ‘But the sink is too high.’

Qiu Li Luo couldn’t resist squeezing Qiu Li Luo’s chubby cheeks.

‘Aunty will help you,’ Qiu Li Luo said.

‘Thank you aunty,’ Yuan Gun Gun said sweetly.

‘Gun Gun’s a good girl,’ Qiu Li Luo praised.

Qiu Li picked up a tooth brush and brushed Yuan Gun Gun’s teeth. Then she poured warm water into a cup and helped Yuan Gun Gun rinse her mouth. She was happy she finally got to mother such an adorable little girl.

Qiu Li Luo washed Yuan Gun Gun’s face, and she took out a clean towel from a drawer to wipe Yuan Gun Gun’s face. She put Yuan Gun Gun down. Afterward she had to brush her teeth and wash her face too because she was worried she would wake up Hao Yan Que if she brushed and washed in the master bathroom.

Qiu Li Luo carried Yuan Gun Gun outside the bathroom.

‘Gun Gun are you hungry?’ Qiu Li Luo asked.

Yuan Gun Gun rubbed her small stomach.

‘Aunty Li, I’m hungry,’ Yuan Gun Gun said.

‘Aunty will take Gun Gun to eat breakfast,’ Qiu Li Luo said.

Qiu Li Luo put Yuan Gun Gun down, she held Yuan Gun Gun’s chubby hand and they walked together to the dining room. She decided, Yuan Gun Gun had to be her daughter-in-law.
