Zhuang Nai Nai is now the focus of everyone’s attentions, including Gu De Shou’s.
He follows her gaze and looks at the caller. His eyes light up.
Her hands are trembling as she tries to reject the call, only to be urged by Gu De Shou, “Hurry! Hurry and accept the call! It is Mr. Si!”
Zhuang Nai Nai:………………
Remembering what she said back in the car; about his cold face and about how he would never be able to marry, Zhuang Nai Nai wants to bang her head against a wall.
This is all because of her own mouth!
Does she has the guts to reject his call?
Her heart tightens up a little as she accepts the call. Despite how scared she is inside, she answers the phone with a sweet, syrupy voice, “Hello…..”
Everyone else: “………………….”
Does this sweet voice really belongs to the girl who almost turned the entire house upside down earlier on?
From the other side of the line, Si Zheng Ting’s cold voice comes through, “You called me?”
This is the first time she is hearing his voice through the telephone.
She suddenly has the feeling that she has travelled back in time back to 5 years ago.
Years have passed and his voice remains the same.
She suddenly has a hard time breathing as she lowers her voice, “No, nothing.”
Gu De Shou who is watching the entire thing sends her looks with his eyes, but she completely ignores him. When Zhuang Nai Nai does not speak, Gu De Shou becomes really anxious.
When will they get the chance to speak with Mr. Si again? This girl looks so smart, why is she so bad at speaking?
He takes the phone away from her, laughing as he speaks into the line, “Hello, Mr. Si. I am Gu De Shou, Qing Yan’s father.”
The other side remains quiet for a moment, before finally speaking in a cold voice, “En, is there something you want to say?”
Hearing that, Gu De Shou’s face tightens. How can there be a person like this, who is able to sound imposing even through the phone?
Gu De Shou clears his throat, “Uh…. I would like to ask about your engagement with Qing Yan….”
Zhuang Nai Nai wrestles the phone back. She is going to be in trouble if she continues letting them talk to each other.
Once Si Zheng Ting opens his mouth, she is done for!
Her moves cause Gu De Shou to narrow his eyes at her in suspicion.
Zhuang Nai Nai bites her lips, knowing that she has no other choice but to talk about their so called impending marriage, “When are we going to register our marriage?”
With the way she spoke, it ought to make Gu De Shou believe that Si Zheng Ting has agreed to marry her but simply cannot find the date yet.
As for Si Zheng Ting…… The moment Zhuang Nai Nai finishes speaking, she expects him to mock her or to end the call. He always got angry everytime she spoke about their marriage after all.
Zhuang Nai Nai doesn’t have any choice right now. One wrong move and she can say goodbye to her mother.
Si Zheng Ting is quiet. Taking advantage of his silence, Zhuang Nai Nai smiles brightly, “En, I understand that you are busy. I will not bother you. Oh, do not work until it is too late. You will get sick!”
