Zhuang Nai Nai can hear the sound of footsteps approaching her.
She can see Si Zheng Ting’s cold face reflected in the mirror. He slowly walks towards her.
She looks at him with her red eyes. Just as she is about to speak, he wraps his arms around her waist.
In the blink of an eye, she is lifted by him.
She stares at him, dumbfounded. What is he trying to do?
He carries her to their bed before gently placing her there. Then, he grabs hold of her ankle. He takes out a bottle of oil and opens it’s lid. A strong medicinal smell radiates from the bottle.
Her body immediately turns rigid.
Don’t tell her that he is…… Impossible!
In the midst of her dilemma, she sees Si Zheng Ting dropping two drops of oil on her ankle before massaging it with his warm hands.
He is…. really doing that!
She stares at him, stunned. She feels like warmth has slowly spread through her heart, through her body. She suddenly does not feel so lonely anymore.
She bites her lips. He is very considerate, this time.
She blinks, and then blinks again, trying to push back her tears. Just as she is about to thank him for doing this, her painful ankle suddenly throbs when he presses on the sore spot hard, “Ah, it hurts!”
The warmth that has been brewing in the atmosphere immediately disappears.
She stares at him accusingly with her lips pursed, swollen-eyes and all.
The corner of Si Zheng Ting’s lips involuntarily twitches. He is very tempted to bully her when she looks like this.
In the end, he has to explain himself, “Just endure it for a moment. It will no longer hurt later.”
Sure enough, the pain gradually lessens. In the end, the only thing she can feel from her ankle is warmth.
The warmth of his hands moves something deep inside Zhuang Nai Nai’s heart.
After he finishes massaging her, he signals her to try to walk.
“It really does not hurt anymore! You are so awesome, Si Zheng Ting!” Zhuang Nai Nai’s eyes light up as she slowly walks on the rug.
She was originally worried about how she should go to work tomorrow; this is really good!
Si Zheng Ting cannot help but smile when he looks at her.
Although her eyes are swollen, he can see the genuine joy in her face as she talks.
Si Zheng Ting does not understand why there is such a simple woman in this world. She is happy just because it does not hurt anymore. She is just like how she was five years ago.
He originally thought that he gives in too much, but after seeing this, his heart turns light from joy.
It is as though seeing her happy is enough to make him happy.
