Awakening - Chapter 121
“Kazumi, your brother is outside looking for you.” Take Asasei placed a stack of books in the bookshelves and said to the girl.
“Thanks.” After putting away the book, Kazumi immediately walked outside followed by her friend.
In the customer lounge at the bookstore, she noticed Lei Yin leisurely sat on a chair, looking at her coming at him.
However, to her surprise, she saw a smiling little girl sitting on his lap. A beautiful little girl who she had never seen.
“Brother, who is this little girl?” Kazumi came over and strangely looked at Amy.
“She is my daughter.” Lei Yin said with a solemn expression.
“What?” The nearby Take Asasei uncontrollably called out.
Kazumi somewhat weakly said: “Really? Turns out I have become someone else’s aunt, mom must be very happy to have such a lovely granddaughter. Come on, have you ever saw an eight or nine years old little boy have a kid?” The last sentence was directed at Take Asasei.
Hearing her friend’s words, Take Asasei immediately woke up, this little girl seems to be eleven or twelve years old. And Kazumi’s brother, even if he reach puberty really fast, it would still be impossible for him to have such a big kid.
“Are you lying to me?”
Lei Yin laughed, “You do not need to wonder anymore, I was indeed lying to you.”
“Damn.” Take Asasei gnashed her teeth and glared at him.
For the sudden appearance of these two new big sisters, Amy seemed a bit nervous to look at them.
Take Asasei has no defense at all when faced with cute things. Looking at the almost like an oversized foreign-style doll Amy, particularly her perfect pair of big and round eyes which made her expression looked more innocent, Take Asase could no longer hold herself and reached out her hands, wanting to touch her face.
Toward this ‘many hands’ sister, Amy was somewhat angry and quickly drilled her body toward Lei Yin’s bosom, to avoid her stretched out hands.
“Hey, you are scaring her.” Lei Yin comforted the little girl in his bosom.
“Come on, other people just want to touch her face. She is really cute.” Take Asasei was like seeing a cute pet, bent her waist to look at Amy’s milky-white tender skin, while her heart was somewhat envious about it.
Lei Yin lowered her head toward the little girl and said: “Kid, do not be afraid, they are good people. The glasses sister is my little sister, and the ‘many-hands’ sister is her good friend. She meant no harm, just think that you are very cute, so she wants to touch your face.”
Take Asasei for the first time heard Lei Yin spoke in English and cannot help but look at him with incomparable surprise.
Although Japan was an economic powerhouse, foreign language penetration was very low as with the other Asian countries. Even the Miss Japan who participated in the Miss Universe contest needed to bring a translator with her. Therefore, when she heard Lei Yin spoke a fluent English, it was no wonder that she would feel surprise.
Hearing his words, Amy lifted her head back and looked at the two sisters. After a while, she suddenly smiled to them and nodded a greeting.
Seeing Amy’s lovable smiling face, Take Asasei, with great difficulties, managed to hold back her impulse to reach out and touch her.
“You are about to get off work, right? Let’s have lunch together.” Lei Yin said to Kazumi.
“Ok, wait here, I will go talk with the manager.” Kazumi pulled her vision away from Amy.
“No need, I will wait here until you finish your work, it is not that long anyway.” Lei Yin thought she was still new in this part-time job and did not want others to have the impression that she liked to leave early.
“Very well, let me get two books for you.” With that, she turned and walked to the front of the shelves to find something suitable for him to read.
Looking at the unblinkingly staring at Amy Take Asasei, Lei Yin unhappily said: “Hey, if you keep on looking, I will have to charge your a fee.”
“Is she your relatives? Let me touch her face, okay? I really want to touch it. Oh, I have never seen such a beautiful little girl. Compared to her, our family’s cousins look almost like a monkey.” Take Asasei looked at him with a pleading look.
It seemed like if he did not satisfy her wish, she would trouble them, Lei Yin had to consult with Amy.
“This ‘many-hands’ sister really likes you, can you hold out your hands and let her touch it?” Even saying these words made Lei Yin feel awkward.
Amy looked at Lei Yin, and then very cutely nodded.
Seeing that she agreed, Lei Yin looked up at Take Asasei and said: “She agreed to let you touch her hands, remember not to grab her too hard, she is still a child.”
Take Asasei loudly cheered, and immediately held Amy’s two small hands and play with it.
“They are very soft and comfortable, I also want to have a child like her. She is really cute.” Take Asasei finally put the little girl’s two small hands on her face and rubbed it there, feeling the pleasantly warm touch from the tender skin.
Watching the excited look of the big sister, the little girl somewhat puzzledly asked Lei Yin: “Lei, what’s wrong with her?”
“She is really happy to make friends with you.” He was going to say “She is a strange woman.” But eventually bore it down.
After having a meal with Kazumi and her friend, Lei Yin brought Amy back to his apartment.
“Kid, are you tired? Do you want to take a nap?” Lei Yin said while conveniently turned on the television.
“Okay.” Amy has a habit of taking a midday nap, and she did feel a bit sleepy.
“When you wake up, I will take you to meet someone.”
“Who?” The little girl a bit curiously asked.
“It is a secret, go to sleep first.” Lei Yin smiled and pinched her face.
Seemingly liking this familiar action, which felt similar to two years ago, Amy very happily hugged him, and then kissed him on the face.
“Amy is very happy, finally able to see Lei.” The little girl’s eyes slowly became red.
“Sorry to keep you waiting for so long.” Lei Yin’s heart somewhat felt guilty. He initially wanted to visit her two years ago to spend time with her, but because he had to save ReiLi, his plan did not materialize until now.
The little girl shook her head, and then leaned on his arms and whispered: “As long as I can see Lei, Amy is happy.”
Lei Yin did not know what to say, just wordlessly stroked her hair.
“Hello, Amy, my name is Hasebe Naoko, very happy to meet you.” The slightly nervous Naoko said hello to Amy in English.
Amy did not answer, just unblinkingly looked at the beautiful woman in front of her.
Seeing no response from her, Naoko felt a bit awkward.
To see these two young and mature beautiful women fell into a stalemate situation, Lei Yin felt somewhat funny.
“Kid, what would you like to eat?” Lei Yin put the menu with English translation in front of Amy.
After taking a look at Naoko, the little girl shifted her gaze toward the menu.
Lei Yin looked up at Naoko and said: “Initially I want to take you to Switzerland this Summer vacation to find this kid, but she suddenly visited here, it seems like this idea has to be postponed again. I had wanted to take you skiing in Switzerland.”
“It does not matter, we can do it at another time. Say, this is the first time I meet with Amy, turns out she is so cute.”
“You are also cute when you were a kid.” Lei Yin has seen her childhood photographs.
Hearing his casual compliment, Naoko’s face went slightly red.
Watching this extremely easy to shy beauty, Lei Yin could not help but reach out his right hand to hold her delicate hand.
“Lei….” Naoko’s face became even more red.
Just then, Amy suddenly slammed the menu on the table, causing a “popping” sound. Then, she took Lei Yin’s hand and suddenly said: “Lei, I want ice cream.”
“Ice cream is a dessert after the meal, you better choose another one.” Lei Yin replied.
At this time, Naoko quietly pulled back her hand from his grip.
“You help me choose, okay?” The little girl used a unique voice that was sprinkled with tenderness.
“Very well.” Lei Yin lowered his head down to look at the menu to find something suitable for her taste.
Whether it was an illusion or not, Naoko felt that Amy seemed to dislike her.
They ate their meal in a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. But during that time, Amy almost totally paid no attention to Naoko. Even when asked, she would just use short words as her answer, or simply pretended not to hear.
Naoko knew from Lei Yin that Amy previously had Autism, so for her nonchalant reaction, she did not think about it too much.
When Lei Yin went to the bathroom, Amy, who up to now always treated Naoko like a transparent person, suddenly asked: “You have known Lei for a long time?”
Being actively asked by Amy, Naoko felt somewhat flattered. She immediately replied: “I previously was a teacher in his high school. I have known him for about three years.”
“Do you like Lei very much?” The little girl looked at her closely.
This question may seem simple, but it made Naoko completely unable to answer it. Although she wanted to make a firm reply, she thought this kind of information should not be suitable for a child her age.
“I….actually….” Naoko was thinking about the more appropriate terminology.
Without waiting for her to think, Amy spoke first, “Lei is mine, I will not give him to anyone, including you.”
The little girl’s tone was very firm.
If her uncle Rolando was present, he would certainly lament that his niece is indeed a Dai-Fei family, she has the same resolute character like her father.
