When he walks into the living room, Zhuang Nai Nai runs out from the kitchen and smiles sweetly at him. Although he does not show any particular expression, the cold air radiating from him has lessened a lot.
The housekeeper who comes to check on the noise immediately smiles when he sees them.
He knows that the old madam has been really worried because sir hasn’t been coming home this week.
They have only gotten back together last night, and have gone out together early this morning, the housekeeper was worried that they would fight again.
He sighs in relief. After sending them upstairs, he takes out his phone and dials the old madam’s number.
The call quickly comes through. Ding Mengya’s voice sounds pretty lazy on the other line, as though she has just woken up, “How is it, old Li? Has your sir’s massive ego been curbed?”
The housekeeper: ………. “Old Madam, it looks like sir and madam has made up.”
“That’s good then. Ai, raising a kid is such a labor. He is already over 20 years old and yet I still worry about him everyday. I could not sleep at night,” Ding Mengya says while yawning.
The housekeeper: She sounds like she has just woken up from a sleep, though…
He clears his throat, “Do you think the madam will tell him what happened that year?”
Ding Mengya is quiet for a moment before saying, “I don’t think so.”
“If she hasn’t told him, how did they make up?”
“I don’t know. But, if Zheng Ting knows about what happened that year, they wouldn’t be together harmoniously right now.”
The housekeeper sighs, “You are right. Sir has always been so proud and distant. If he finds out that madam chose money over him back then, it would affect him greatly. I think this matter is a knot in their relationship. Sir will find out about it sooner or later, do you want to do something about it?”
Ding Mengye becomes quiet, “No. Just like I said, they are grown-ups now. The past is the past. What if they cannot accept what happened back then? They may never be happy again.”
Old Li nods in agreement.
Ding Mengya becomes quiet again, before speaking up in a dream-like voice full of regret, “Old Li, she clearly passed my test at first, why did she accept the money later? If she had not accepted the money, if she had not left Zheng Ting, perhaps I would have a grandchild by now.”
The housekeeper does not reply her.
Upstairs, Si Zheng Ting puts his clothes straight into the dustbin and goes to the washroom to bath.
Zhuang Nai Nai stands by the doorway, extremely embarrassed.
He is clearly unhappy because she spurned his request earlier on, what should she do?
Si Zheng Ting’s phone suddenly rings.
She picks it up and sees the name ‘Jing Yu’ flashing on the screen.
That is clearly a woman’s name. Who exactly is it? Si Zheng Ting seems really intimate with her, to the point where he does not address her by her full name.
The call stops after a moment.
If this is any other woman, she would have accepted the call already. Si Zheng Ting is her husband, she has the right to do that. Unfortunately, her relationship with Si Zheng Ting is not like your typical husband and wife.
Besides….. She lowers her head. If Si Zheng Ting really has another woman out there, will she be able to do anything about it?
As she is immersed in her thoughts, the washroom door opens.
Si Zheng Ting is wearing a bathrobe and is drying his hair with a towel. When his phone rings again, he looks at it calmly.
Zhuang Nai Nai hastily hands it over to him, carefully eyeing his reaction.
Light flashes in Si Zheng Ting’s eyes when he sees the caller’s ID. He accepts the call and walks to the balcony. Through his phone’s microphone, Zhuang Nai Nai can hear a female’s voice saying, “Dear Ting, I am back!”
The look on Zhuang Nai Nai’s face changes? Who is back?
