Even Zhuang Nai Nai is surprised by what she has just said.
Why is she so muddle-headed? Why had she done such an embarrassing thing?
She decides to go all out with it and hugs him even tighter from behind.
Si Zheng Ting’s body turns rigid.
His originally cold heart becomes a little warmer.
He smiles mockingly at himself; she only needs to treat him warmy every once in a while and he will completely give in to her. He’ll only get his lesson once she leaves him again.
He purses his lips as his heart turns sour.
Just as he is to force himself to push her away again, someone suddenly speaks, “Is there anything I can do to help you, sir, madam?”
Si Zheng Ting is stunned when he discovers the housekeeper and a couple more maids poking their heads out of their respective bedrooms, no doubt hearing the ruckus that they made.
Si Zheng Ting sighs as he looks at the woman currently hugging him from behind, “Nothing.”
Then, he turns around and grabs Zhuang Nai Nai by the arm. He drags her to the study and closes the door.
The study is completely pitch black.
Zhuang Nai Nai unconsciously feels the wall, trying to find the light switch. He grabs her hand.
“Si Zheng Ting?” her tone is questioning.
“Zhuang Nai Nai.”
In the darkness, she can tell that he is not far from her, but she has no idea what sort of expression adorns his face right now.
Just, his voice sounds very heavy, as though he is suppressing something.
“En, what is it?” she holds his hand.
Si Zheng Ting does not know what it is he wants to say, all he knows is that he does not want her to turn on the light. As though, every single trick and machination can be tucked away safely inside the darkness, and that once the light is switched on, he will be forced to face them head on.
But, the sun is rising soon.
He lets go of her hand.
Zhuang Nai Nai turns on the light and covers her eyes that have yet to adjust to the brightness.
After she puts down her hand, she finds Si Zheng Ting staring at her intently.
The way he is looking at her is very weird.
Just as she is busy trying to discern that look, he turns around and flings his coat to the sofa before sitting there, crossing his leg impatiently, “Why are you looking for me this time of the night?”
He knows what it is she is looking to do, just, he wonders how she plans to execute it.
Zhuang Nai Nai does not understand what is up with him. He does not look angry, so she sits on the sofa opposite him, “Si Zheng Ting, I think something is wrong with the design drafts.” She jumps straight to the point, “I originally thought that Gu De Shou has hired someone to steal the drafts. But now, I think something is wrong. Can I see Di Hao’s drafts?”
She wants to see Di Hao’s drafts?
Si Zheng Ting narrows his eyes before handing her a piece of paper.
Zhuang Nai Nai studies the paper in shock, “Why is jiejie’s design the same as mine?”
