The person in front of him has swollen eyes. She is staring at him with large eyes, like an abandoned puppy. She is looking so pitiful with tears glistening in her eyes.
This kind of Zhuang Nai Nai…. This weak Zhuang Nai Nai kills off all the barriers that Si Zheng Ting has in his heart.
What happened five years ago as well as her reaction to having children with him last night are no longer problems. Si Zheng Ting’s heart has entirely and thoroughly turns soft.
His throat moves, but he cannot find anything to say. He sits next to Zhuang Nai Nai and awkwardly pulls her straight into his chest. His entire body is rigid.
He is the heir of Di Hao Group, he never has to mollify anyone before.
Hugging her is an instinct. What next?
Si Zheng Ting thinks for a moment before awkwardly patting her shoulders, as though trying to drive her unhappiness away.
“What’s wrong?” he asks, while patting her shoulders.
Even he does not realize how gentle and intimate his voice sounds.
Zhuang Nai Nai bites her lips in grievance. She looks at him, pursing her lips before saying, “…. My ankle hurts too much.”
Si Zheng Ting’s heart tightens.
Zhuang Nai Nai has never been a coquettish person, that is definitely not the reason for her tears.
His hands pause mid-air.
Zhuang Nai Nai really wants to tell him everything, but she cannot. She promised Ding Mengya to put everything behind her. Rather than letting everything out and inflicting pain to both of them, might as well bury it deep inside her heart and never let it out again.
She knows that using her ankle as an excuse is stretching it too much, but her head is too muddled and she is too tired to think of another excuse.
She bites her lips before looking at Si Zheng Ting with a pair of swollen eyes.
His face is expressionless as usual, she cannot tell if he is angry.
He pushes Zhuang Nai Nai away and gets up.
She watches him leaving with her heart beating loudly.
‘Bang’, the door is shut close.
Her eyes dim down.
…..Is he angry again?
She smiles mockingly before hugging her knees.
She is too tired. She is not in the mood to chase after him, to coax him.
Her nose feels sour while her heart feels as though it has been pinched.
That bad man!
She is clearly sad, yet he still finds the opportunity to vent his temper tantrum on her!
She will not love him anymore!
With that in mind, her tears fall again.
Inside the empty room, her weeping sound fills the air.
In the midst of her tears, Zhuang Nai Nai realizes something. Si Jing Yu, Shi Jin Yan and that difficult man are all waiting for her to eat, downstairs.
She wipes her tears hastily and shakes off her heels. Then, she runs to the bathroom and washes her face with clean water.
It is at that moment that she hears the sound of the bedroom door opening once again.
