Chapter 43: Recovering Pride


The bodyguards’ faces are expressionless as they look straight in front of them.

Zhuang Nai Nai is really angry seeing how they are not looking guilty at all.

Only allowed on

Remembering what happened on the way here, she turns around and walks away.  She does not need to be send home by them!  However, the moment she steps out of the gate, she promptly regrets her decision.

There is only a small road out there.  Since they are in a private property, not even a single cab passes here.

Will she be able to reach the city centre before dark?

She can hear the sound of cars approaching her.  One of the bodyguards rolls down the window before saying, “Please get in, Miss Gu.”

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.

Zhuang Nai Nai:……… Boarding now will only make her lose face.

But then again, which is more important: face or returning home?

She clears her throat before raising her chin high, “I will not make things hard for all of you.  What if your employer thinks that you all are incapable?”

The bodyguards: You think too much, Miss Gu.

All of them are expressionless.  Never mind thanking her for her kind consideration, they should at least apologize for earlier on.

The grievance inside Zhuang Nai Nai’s heart becomes bigger.  Since she doesn’t have enough guts to scold Si Zheng Ting, she can only vent on these people.

She looks around, “Wei, you people finally realized the saying, ‘where there is a master, there is always a servant.’”

None of them replies her, but all three are looking at her.

Zhuang Nai Nai laughs, “Looking at you three’s miserable faces, those who marry you will be so unlucky.”

The bodyguards:  Is she dissing Mr. Si?

She continues looking at them, “Aiya, although your Mr.Si is handsome and with money, he is still unmarried.  It is all because of his cold face!  Let me tell you this, the guy will be single for the rest of his life!”

She looks at the two bodyguards who used to keep her away from Si Zheng Ting, “Wei, what are your names?”

One of them replies her with a cold voice, “I am Da Shan, and he is Xiao Shan, Miss Gu.”

“So you two are brothers?” Zhuang Nai Nai nods before saying, “The next time Mr. Si tells you two to block me, please give me a little face.”  Her voice then turns malicious, “If you two don’t, you two will pay for it in the future.”

Then, she turns her attention to the man who kidnapped her. “What about you?  What is your name?”

“Miss Gu, my name is…..”

“I know what your name is!  Your name is Da Zhuang!  The name sure suits your appearance!”

(TN: Da means ‘big’ and Zhuang means ‘robust/huge’)

“My name is not Da Zhuang, my name is Huang Pei Dong,” the corner of the bodyguard’s lips twitches.

“Oh, I understand, Da Zhuang.  Da Zhuang-ah, the next time you kidnap people, please be kind and tell them that it is under Mr. Si’s order.  I was so scared that my soul almost flew out of my body.  How will you explain it to Mr. Si if I die under your care?”

Huang Pei Dong:  Nobody would believe that if they saw how talkative you were in the car…..

When he notices that Zhuang Nai Nai is going to speak again, he kind heartedly tells her, “Miss Gu, the intercom inside the car is on.”

Zhuang Nai Nai freezes.  After a while, she cautiously asks, “Who is on the other side of the intercom?”

Huang Pei Dong glances at her, “Mr. Si.”

Zhuang Nai Nai: ………….
