Mu Lan looked at the bowl and twisted her mouth. "What's this green thingy?"
"It's a broccoli soup. I put something to make you more energetic."
"Oh." She took the bowl without further question.
Pedro looked at her carefully. Then, he put his right hand on her chin and made her look at him. He frowned. "Your eyes are swollen. Did you cry?"
Mu Lan shook her head. "It's nothing." She wanted to leave but Pedro caught her by her left ear and pulled her. She complained, "Ow! It hurts!"
He made sure that she sat down and then said, "You can drink the soup and at the same time, share your worries." He made tea for himself and put the warm kettle on the wooden table.
Mu Lan pouted and afterward sighed deeply. She said, "I asked Carl to alter Li Shen's memory. He will forget that he ever met me in Beijing and he liked me."
Pedro poured tea and added cinnamon, honey, and mint. "Is that why you cried?"
