As Ye Chen pushed and exchanged glasses with Ito Yohiko and Tanaka Koichi, Nana-chan stood by and kept refilling his wine.
Interestingly, Nana-chan only refilled Ye Chen’s wine, Emi Ito only refilled Yohiko Ito’s wine, and Koichi Tanaka, on the other hand, had to refill his own wine.
The so-called “Dragon’s Whistle” was not very good in Ye Chen’s opinion. Apart from the pure rice flavour, it was really lacking in taste, and if you wanted to feel slightly drunk, it had to be at least forty proof.
However, since it was a national treasure brought all the way from Ito Yuhiko, Ye Chen naturally gave his face.
Including the top quality seafood sashimi prepared by Emi Ito, Ye Chen also continued to praise it.
But what was actually in his mind was that the sashimi itself had little flavour, what he ate was just the texture of the different fish, and after dipping it in soy sauce and wasabi, the overall taste was actually not too different.
This is very similar to hotpot, where all you eat is the taste of the base and the dipping sauce.
After having lunch at the Ito family’s new residence, Ye Chen chatted with Yohiko Ito for a while before getting up to leave.
He had previously told Su Zhiyu that he would visit Du Haiqing’s home, so naturally he could not go back on his word.
Although he had drunk a lot of sake with the two of them, it was good that he had his aura with him, and before he left, he used his aura to remove all the alcohol before he drove to the old mansion of his family back then.
Su Zhi Fei had changed into clean clothes, shaved and tied up his shoulder-length hair, making him look much quieter and sharper.
Su Zhiyu sat on the sofa, keeping an eye on the movement outside the courtyard, wanting to be able to see Ye Chen when he arrived.
And when the BMW car driven by Ye Chen slowly stopped at the entrance of the courtyard, Su Zhiyu’s whole body was instantly happy and she hurriedly said to her mother and brother, “Mr. Ye is here!”
After saying that, she had already stood up and ran towards the door.
Du Haiqing and Su Zhi Fei also hurriedly got up and followed behind them to welcome them.
By the time Ye Chen got out of the car, these three people had already walked to the door one after the other.
Su Zhiyu pulled open the vintage iron grille door, a little blushing, yet not forgetting to say respectfully, “Mr. Ye you’re here!”
Su Zhi Fei also said very respectfully, “Mr. Ye ……”
Du Haiqing, on the other hand, was not as formal as the two of them, she was like seeing her best friend’s child and said cordially, “Ye Chen is here, come inside!”
Ye Chen nodded slightly and said respectfully, “Hello Auntie Du, it’s been a while since I visited you, how are you doing?”
Du Haiqing said with a smile, “I’m fine, the environment in Jinling is becoming more comfortable for me to live in, and I don’t have as many worries as before these days, so I’m still very comfortable.”
Ye Chen nodded, “That’s good! I wasn’t in Jinling during that time, but I shouldn’t be going out during this recent period, so if you need any help with anything in Jinling, just contact me anytime.”
“Good!” Du Haiqing didn’t overdo the courtesy and agreed with a smile, and then invited Ye Chen into his home.
Entering this old mansion, Ye Chen couldn’t help but have a feeling of being in a different world.
When his own parents had rented this old mansion, they had also done a careful restoration, just like now, and although it still looked so rustic, it managed to give people a feeling of newness.
After twenty years of inactivity, this old mansion had also once been dilapidated, but after Du Haiqing’s careful restoration, it all seemed to have returned to the state it was in twenty years ago.
For a moment, Ye Chen even felt like he was seven or eight years old again, when his parents had just settled down in Jinling and the family was living here in a dull but happy way.
