Chapter 279: Everyone is a Coward in Love (15)

Even though their misunderstanding has not been cleared, Zhuang Nai Nai is confident that they can live happily together.  They can slowly learn to trust each other after this.

The sense of alienation that they feel between themselves stems from the breakup 5 years back.  Trust is a type of thing that will cultivate slowly, it needs time.  Lucky they are married, they have the rest of their lives to learn to trust each other.

After Si Zheng Ting enters the bedroom, he goes straight to the bathroom.  He is someone who pays particular attention to cleanliness and he has not washed his head even once today.  After taking a quick shower, he puts on a bathrobe and walks out of the bathroom.

Dear Readers. Scrapers have recently been devasting our views. At this rate, the site (creativenovels .com) might...let's just hope it doesn't come to that. If you are reading on a scraper site. Please don't.

While he has been taking his bath, Zhuang Nai Nai has ran off to his study to retrieve the shirt that she bought for him.  After he walks out of the bathroom, he finds her waiting for him outside, her eyes twinkling, “You should try on this shirt, it will look really good on you!”

Si Zheng Ting looks at her with his eyebrows raised, looking hesitant.

She is a little disappointed by his reaction, “I should put this away first.”

Only allowed on

Perhaps, this shirt is fated to gather dust inside his closet. 

Si Zheng Ting suddenly says, “What are you waiting for?  Aren’t you going to help me put it on?”

She looks up and finds him walking into the changing room.

Her face lights up in joy.  Si Zheng Ting is suddenly not that hard to live with, now.

She takes the black shirt out of the bag and runs after him excitedly.  When she walks into the changing room, she sees Si Zheng Ting standing in front of the mirror, as though hesitating over something.

She walks in front of him, “Why aren’t you taking your clothes off?”

He turns around to look at her, his eyebrows raised, “Are you sure?”

“Of course!  How else are you going to try this on?” Don’t tell her that this man doesn’t even know how to do that much?  Not long later, she finally understands his hesitation.  Si Zheng Ting takes off his robe in front of her, revealing his completely bare body.

His wheat-colored skin and his prominent muscles are right in front of her.  His legs are long, and though they are thin, they look very powerful.  And then….. Zhuang Nai Nai can’t help but glance at that part, her cheeks reddening.

They are only here to help him try a shirt, why has things come to this stage?

She looks away, too embarrassed to look on even though she would like to.  Her cheeks are red, like ripe apples.

“Come here,” his simple sentence causes her to unconsciously walk over to him.  She helps him put on the shirt as he spread his arms.

He looks completely natural as he looks at his reflection in the mirror.

He freezes for a moment after Zhuang Nai Nai buttons up the very top button, “What size is this?”

Zhuang Nai Nai swallows heavily, “XL.”

Si Zheng Ting: ……………

Zhuang Nai Nai looks at him anxiously, “Why?  Did I buy the wrong size?  The salesperson says that people who are 185cm in height should be XXL, but if they are thin, then XL. “

Si Zheng Ting: …………….

It is true that he is not overweight, but he is not the bamboo-thin type either.  Although he is thin, he still has a little flesh.

What is XL anyway?  His attires have always been custom-made, there is no specific size.

However, when he sees the anxiety in Zhuang Nai Nai’s eyes, he says, “It fits just about right.”

She sighs in relief. 

Seeing her fussing over him like this made him feel like the little tightness in the neck area amounts to nothing.
