Zhuang Nai Nai paces around the room twice. Other than a little soreness, her ankle no longer hurts. She looks at the clock on the wall.
It is already 8pm!
Thinking about Si Jing Yu and Shi Jin Yan, Zhuang Nai Nai turns to Si Zheng Ting anxiously, “Sister and brother-in-law….”
“I told them to eat first,” Si Zheng Ting coolly says.
He puts the oil away before walking to the washroom to wash his hands.
Zhuang Nai Nai follows him from behind curiously. She stands by the bathroom’s door as she asks, “We are not eating with them?”
Turns out, Si Zheng Ting left earlier to tell them to eat without them, not because he was angry.
Is he trying to make things easy for her?
Si Zheng Ting is washing his hands earnestly. Although his eyes are on his hands, the corners of his eyes are on the person standing by the door.
When he sees her staggering there, he automatically frowns before saying, “You are looking like that, how could you eat with them?”
His mouth is as tough as a bullet, but his heart is really soft.
Zhuang Nai Nai purses her lips, before blossoming into a smile as she looks at him.
He cannot bring himself to look at her in the eyes. He walks out of the bathroom while muttering, “You cry and then laugh the next moment, are you a three-year old child?”
It seems as though he is reproaching her, but his voice contains traces of intimacy.
Zhuang Nai Nai grabs his arm before flatteringly saying, “I will not be like this anymore.”
Si Zheng Ting’s face is as rigid as ever as he walks to the room. His pace is purposely slower out of consideration for a certain someone. He walks to their bed and sits there, before pressing on a button on the intercom on the bedside table. “Bring it in,” he says.
Zhuang Nai Nai looks at him curiously. He points at the bed to her.
She blinks at him, she looks like she wants to say something, but upon one look on his unrelenting face, she gives in and obediently walks over. She lies on the bed and leans against the headboard, touching her tummy.
She didn’t eat much during lunch because she was too afraid ofTZ. She is so hungry right now. Just as she is secretly scolding this man for being so unbearable, someone knocks on the door.
Si Zheng Ting gets up and walks to the door.
Because they are at home, Si Zheng Ting is wearing something simple, a white shirt and a pair of black pants. Even so, he looks very noble.
When he opens the door, a delicious aroma wafts to her nose.
Zhuang Nai Nai’s eyes light up. She stretches her neck to look at the door.
Why does it smell like chicken porridge?
Si Zheng Ting carries the bowl in and puts it on the coffee table. Then, he places a small table on the bed and puts the bowl there.
Zhuang Nai Nai: …………..
She is not used to this considerate side of him.
When Si Zheng Ting puts a pair of chopsticks in her hands, she finally realizes that she is not dreaming.
Her nose feels sour and she suddenly feels like crying. She lowers her head to hide her emotion. She picks up the noodles and quickly eats.
At that moment….
‘Grrr..’ A peculiar sound can be heard.
