Zhuang Nai Nai has a little guilty conscience. She raises her head to look at Si Zheng Ting before bravely asking him, “You- Why did you kissed me?”
Si Zheng Ting’s temples suddenly throb when he sees her bright and stubborn eyes.
5 years have passed and her ability to act so shameless is still the same.
She is the one who initiated it and now she is the one doing the questioning as though he is the offender.
Si Zheng Ting unbuttons his collar before looking at her again. Her bright and brilliant eyes suddenly makes him go into a trance; he feels like he has time-travelled back to 5 years ago.
After she pursued him for a very long time, he fell for her but didn’t know how to express it.
Both of them were walking around the school’s garden when she suddenly held his hand and ran away. Before she could flee, he turned around and grabbed her hand as well.
Back then, Zhuang Nai Nai behaved exactly like she is at the moment. Her face was red and she couldn’t look at him in the eyes. Her palm was sweaty and she spoke before he could, “Why are you holding my hand?”
How did he answer her back then?
The corner of Si Zheng Ting’s lips curl as his voice deepens, “The same reason why you kissed me.”
He answered her in the same manner he did, 5 years ago.
Both of them freeze for a moment.
Zhuang Nai Nai does not understand what he is implying. She kissed him so that they could have their pictures taken, so they could get married!
…… And maybe, because there is a part deep inside her heart that still harbours love and desire for him. But it is impossible for him to still harbour feelings for her.
If it is like that, then his reason must be……
Zhuang Nai Nai’s eyes light up, “You are agreeing to our marriage?”
That simply sentence turns Si Zheng Ting cold again.
His heart immediately drops and he is placed back into reality from a beautiful daydream.
How could he forgot that she is only here for their arranged marriage?
If not for that, she probably won’t even remember him.
The warmth inside Si Zheng Ting disappeared.
He narrows his eyes, looking so furious that he is about to destroy everything, “Zhuang Nai Nai!”
His tone pierces her in the heart, “I really wonder how a cold-blooded person like you could change into Mother Teresa in such a short amount of time! You are actually willing to go this far for the Gu Family that you have just known!”
Zhuang Nai Nai’s face turns rigid. He continues speaking out of anger, “Oh, wait, the Zhuang Nai Nai I knew wouldn’t care for anything else! You must have hated being poor and now wants to marry into a rich family so that you can have an easier life!”
When she looks at his eyes and sees the fury and disgust in them, Zhuang Nai Nai bites her lips and fists her hands.
Is that how he looks at her?
The feelings brewing inside Zhuang Nai Nai’s heart bursts as she yells at him, “No! It isn’t because of that!”
