When he opens the blanket, he finds Zhuang Nai Nai blinking innocently at him, “I was asleep for one day and one night?”
Si Zheng Ting: …………..
She is shocked because of that?
Si Zheng Ting wants to laughs at himself. He has never been nervous while managing Di Hao and yet the smallest action from this woman is enough to unsettle him.
He stares at her. Looking at her burrowed underneath the quilt like this makes her look so cute.
She looks back at him curiously, “What’s wrong?”
What’s wrong? He is worried about her, that’s what!
He feels like going crazy. He wants to act coldly to cover up the awkwardness, but he cannot bring himself to when he remembers what she has to go through. He fixes the blanket on her body properly before speechlessly returning to his place on the couch.
The room is quiet for a moment.
Although it is currently night, Zhuang Nai Nai cannot find it in her to sleep.
She continues playing with her phone.
When she checks her phone’s call registry, she discovers a couple of missed calls and texts.
The messages came from a couple of her colleagues, including Su Mei, asking her why she hasn’t gone to work. Seems like she didn’t work there in vain. See, she actually made some friends!
She replies to each of the messages, telling them she is sick and has asked for a leave. With Si Zheng Ting and Ji Chen around, she is not worried over anything.
Amongst the messages is one that comes from an unknown number. It lists a couple of properties in Beijing.
Zhuang Nai Nai ignores it, thinking that it’s a spam message, but after thinking for a while, isn’t this the real estate agency that she hired to find a house for her?
She is in a desperate search for a house for her mother, so that she has a comfortable place to live in after she returns to the country.
She excitedly reads the message.
One of the listings is a two-bedrooms, two-bathrooms house with the price tag of 7 million yuan.
Space is very valuable in Beijing. That price is pretty average for a property in the capital. The current owners are both working outside the city, so they are pretty desperate to sell the house. It is also located in an area that Zhuang Nai Nai is pretty familiar with. There are a couple of supermarkets and outdoor parks nearby, as well as a hospital. It is very suitable for old pensioners.
She is very happy with that property.
There will be a fierce competition for the house, so she quickly contacts the agent, informing them of her decision to buy it. She pays the deposit while lying on her bed. Then, she messages Lin Xi Er, asking her to retrieve her mother’s ID from the old house and to take it to the agency to finalize the purchase.
She just bought a house like one buys a piece of cabbage, and instead of getting jittery, she is very calm.
Now that a good portion of the 10 million is no longer there, it feels as though the wall they erected between them due to the money is slowly crumbling.
Even though she knows that it is only wishful thinking on her part, she lies on her bed happily.
Now that her trouble is over, she lies comfortably on the bed, slowly falling asleep.
Not long later, Si Zheng Ting looks at her when he hears the faint sound of her breathing.
