She must do her best to rise, so that she can stand side-by-side next to Si Zheng Ting in the future.
She pumps her fist to encourage herself. As though noticing the heated glance from behind him, Si Zheng Ting turns around once again.
Zhuang Nai Nai jumps in shock. She pretends to idly hold her forehead before walking to grab some water.
Judging from his expression, he seems to notice that she has been eavesdropping.
What Zhuang Nai Nai does not know is that since the door separating them is made of glass, every single movement she made was caught by the corner of Si Zheng Ting’s eyes. She looks so cute that he wants to pinch her.
A trace of helplessness flashes in Si Zheng Ting’s eyes. He turns around and continues speaking to his phone. Droplets of water drips down his face from his hair. When Zhuang Nai Nai sees that, she quickly looks around and picks up a towel and benevolently walks over to him before sweetly saying, “Husband, your hair is still dripping wet. Dry it first!”
She purposely pronounced the ‘husband’ part clearly.
Their marriage ceremony was done in a low-key manner, TZ probably doesn’t know that they are married. Perhaps, if she makes her mark now, TZ will retreat in defeat.
What she does not realize is that Si Zheng Ting is completely stunned when she addressed him like that.
The corner of his lips rises up.
She is acknowledging him as her husband.
He looks at the towel in her hand before giving her a look.
Zhuang Nai Nai looks at him blankly, not knowing what he wants.
“Aren’t you going to dry it for me?” Si Zheng Ting eyes the towel.
(TN: ‘Nani’ means ‘what’ in Japanese.)
Zhuang Nai Nai stares at him, dumbfounded. This bas*ard wants to speak to his mistress on the phone while having his hair dried by her?
What a blissful life this man is having!
She looks at him unhappily, but quickly changes her mind when she sees the phone in his hand.
Si Zheng Ting is her husband, she must protect their marriage!
If Si Zheng Ting really has something ambiguous with that TZ later on, Zhuang Nai Nai will not take it sitting down.
She gives him a sweet smile as she walks over to him, drying his hair with the towel, “What do you want for dinner, husband? I will cook it for you later!”
Si Zheng Ting frowns, not saying anything.
Zhuang Nai Nai suddenly laughs before saying, “Aiya, husband! You are too naughty!”
And then, she laughs again.
Si Zheng Ting: ……………
Why is she putting on a one-man show?
Although Zhuang Nai Nai does not say anything out loud, how can Si Zheng Ting not understand what she is thinking? His heart suddenly soars in utter delight.
He lowers his head and instead of explaining everything, he says to TZ, “Come for dinner tomorrow.”
