Ji Chen is momentarily stunned. He does not ask anything and simply says, “Yes, sir.”
After the call ended, Ji Chen remains in his seat in confusion. The Imperial Court was the first business his boss tried on after graduating from school. He has ignored it for so many years, why is he suddenly concerned with it again?
Zhuang Nai Nai grins happily as she walks out with the takeouts. If Si Zheng Ting sees her acting this way, will he kick her out of their house?
But all of these are so delicious, throwing them away will be such a waste.
She suddenly remembers her good friend, Lin Xi Er. She holds all the plastic bags in one hand and uses her free hand to take her phone out of her bag. She begins dialing Lin Xi Er’s number.
The call comes through, “Hello.”
Zhuang Nai Nai smiles happily. Just as she is about to brag about the delicious food, she catches sight of Si Zheng Ting’s car near the entrance. The window of the driver’s seat is lowered and Si Zheng Ting is currently looking at her icily.
Zhuang Nai Nai: “Oh mommy!”
“F*ck, what are you calling ‘mommy’, Nai Nai?” Lin Xi Er thought that Zhuang Nai Nai is talking to her. “What is wrong with your mom? Is she back? Are you still there, Nai Nai? Why aren’t you saying anything?”
Zhuang Nai Nai swallows heavily, “I’ll call you back another day.” Then, she hangs up.
She looks at the take-outs and then at the staffs nearby while smiling awkwardly. Si Zheng Ting must be finding her so embarrassing right now.
It is alright if she is the only one embarrassed, but things will get messy if she embarrasses Si Zheng Ting as well.
Zhuang Nai Nai makes her way towards the car with a sweet smile, “Hello, Mr. Si!”
The way she greets him is as though she is not familiar with him.
Si Zheng Ting: …………..
He has waited for her here for more than 15 minutes, is this how she is going to repay him?
What on earth is she thinking about?
She gives him a secret wink, as though they are both taking part in a play.
He really does not know what to do to her. Does she think that he will take any regular Di Hao Group’s employee to this place?
Si Zheng Ting frowns as he starts the car.
Zhuang Nai Nai is slowly regretting this now.
This restaurant is so deserted, she has no idea how far away the nearest bus stop is.
Why does she take so many takeouts on the first place? There is no way she can ride a bus comfortably with this many plastic bags.
As she is immersed in her thoughts, she can hear the sound of car coming from behind her. Just as she sighs in regret, the car stops right next to her.
She looks at the car and sees Si Zheng Ting’s expressionless face, “Get on.”
Zhuang Nai Nai: ………
She looks at the long stretch of road in front of her. She quickly gets on the car, not forgetting to loudly say, “Then I will have to trouble you, Mr. Si! You can drop me off at the nearest bus stop!”
Si Zheng Ting: …………..
The car slowly leaves the restaurant’s compound. Zhuang Nai Nai looks at Si Zheng Ting’s face before lowering her head like a guilty child.
She steals a look at his face. He does not look angry with the takeouts. She experimentally put the plastic bags on the back seat. There is no reaction from him at all.
After they reach the Si Family’s manor, Zhuang Nai Nai clutches the plastic bags and runs towards the kitchen.
Si Zheng Ting watches her speechlessly before making his way towards the entrance of the house.
