What an overbearing question!
Zhuang Nai Nai is secretly impressed as she looks at Si Jing Yu.
Since she already promised Si Jing Yu to keep her secret, she did not tell Si Zheng Ting anything; but seriously, jiejie, hurry and tell him that the so-called husband of yours has a mistress outside! Si Zheng Ting will teach him a lesson for sure!
While Zhuang Nai Nai is secretly rooting for Si Jing Yu, the latter simply shakes her head before saying, “It’s nothing.”
Si Zheng Ting frowns before he turns around and walks away.
Si Jing Yu pulls his arm to stop him, “Where are you going?”
“If you won’t tell me, I will go and ask him,” Si Zheng Ting’s voice is laced with fury. “I want to ask him what is it he is so busy about that he cannot even keep his wife company.”
Si Jing Yu’s eyes becomes watery, “Don’t go! Don’t go!”
He looks at her. When he realizes that she will not tell him anything more than that, he shrugs her arm off, “He will pay the price for bullying you.”
Si Jing Yu is not strong enough against him.
Si Jing Yu runs after him as he walks towards the door downstairs, “Zheng Ting!”
He stops in his steps and turn around to look at her.
She bites her lips, her arms falling limply to her sides. She appears as though she is carrying a heavy load as she looks at him pleadingly, “Please let me preserve the last shred of my dignity.”
When Si Zheng Ting hears that desolation in her voice, he returns to his room without saying anything.
Si Jing Yu sighs in relief. She looks at Zhuang Nai Nai before smiling bitterly.
Her phone continues ringing inside her room. She ignores the ringing as she steps back into her room.
Zhuang Nai Nai followed her in, “Jie, you……”
Si Jing Yu smiles at her, “It is nothing. Today is mother’s birthday. He wants me to be there.”
He wants her to be there?
That man is simply the trashiest of trash!
He wants Si Jing Yu and Bai Yue to be sitting amiably on the same table?
Zhuang Nai Nai is angry beyond belief! She rushes towards the phone that is currently ringing on the table.
Zhuang Nai Nai gets along really well with Si Jing Yu, she pretty much considers Si Jing Yu as her own sister. She accepts the call furiously.
“Jing Yu……” Shi Jin Yan’s voice can be heard saying.
Zhuang Nai Nai sneers without letting him finish, “This is Zhuang Nai Nai! Are you even a man, Shi Jin Yan? You have a mistress out there! You can’t have your cake and eat it too!”
Shi Jin Yan is taken aback by her outburst, “What are you talking about? Hand the phone over to Jing Yu.”
“I—-” Just as Zhuang Nai Nai is about to continue scolding him, Si Jing Yu takes the phone away from her.
“Shi Jin Yan, I told you this over and over again, I will not attend mom’s birthday celebration. You lot can celebrate it yourself. We are getting a divorce, there is no point in me coming.”
Just as she is about to hang up, Shi Jin Yan speaks first, “I think you’e misunderstood something. Bai Yue will not be here.”
She will not be there?
She feels like she has been tricked.
From the beginning till the end, Shi Jin Yan never really said that Bai Yue will be there.
As she is deep in thoughts, a female voice with a heavily accented tongue speaks to the phone, “Jing Yu-ah, why are you not here for mom’s birthday celebration? Everything is ready, we are only waiting for you. I cooked your favorite sweet and sour ribs. We even bought a big lobster that you like so much…….”
serene: This novel is so frustrating. All the female characters are complete doormats.
