Zhuang Nai Nai walks to the bathroom cabinet without a single thread of cloth on her body. She freezes.
The housekeeper had not lied. There are indeed at least twenty nightwears inside the cabinet. The problem is the nightwears are either too short or too sheer.
She closes the cabinet and wraps a towel around her body before cautiously checking at the door outside.
Huh, there is no one around.
She must have heard wrong.
Now that she thinks about it, she must have been wrong. She has only been inside the bathroom for like what, 10 minutes? How could Si Zheng Ting return home that fast?
When she returns to the bathroom and locks the door, there is already someone inside.
As for Si Zheng Ting, the room is dark save for the dim bedside lamps. He thought Zhuang Nai Nai had went to bed. He wants to change and then bath before going to bed. Who would have thought that the moment he enters the bathroom, he would hear the sound of footsteps following him?
Did Zhuang Nai Nai heard his movements and now wants to face him?
He remains quiet and simply turns around to face her. He sees her running into the bathroom before closing the door. And then, “Ahh!!!” Zhuang Nai Nai screams in shock. In her panic, she accidentally trips on her own foot.
Si Zheng Ting subconsciously reaches out to help her.
As Zhuang Nai Nai struggles to maintain her foothold, the hand that she uses to hold her towel in place accidentally lets go. The towel falls to the ground.
Zhuang Nai Nai: ………….
Si Zheng Ting: ……………
Everything happens so fast, none of them manage to react in time.
Zhuang Nai Nai freezes for a few second before panickingly covering her private parts with her hands. She does not know what to do.
Amidst her panic, she remembers a joke from the internet. In that kind of situation, the first thing one should cover is one’s own face.
She anxiously curls up, “Aahhh, get out! Y-Y-You…..”
She picks up the dropped towel and drapes it around her body again before pitifully looking up at Si Zheng Ting.
He is still fully-dressed and is looking away. His face looks indifferent as always.
Seeing his expression, whatever embarrassment or humiliation she feels disappears away.
A sense of loss can somehow be felt inside her heart. This man…. Even if he does not like her, she is still a beautiful grown woman. How can he not have any reaction when seeing her?
In the midst of her internal conflict, he walks away like a true gentleman.
Zhuang Nai Nai: …………..
What an insult to her womanly pride!
The moment the bathroom door is closed again, Si Zheng Ting’s ears turn red.
Even though it was only a quick glance, he managed to see her youthful body. 5 years have passed and she has grown into a woman.
He swallows heavily, suddenly feeling parched. He picks up a glass of water and drinks it, but no matter what, the heat inside his body refuses to die down.
Inside the bathroom, after Zhuang Nai Nai calms down, she gets up and tries to find something to wear.
The towel is dirty and damp now. The only choice left should be the nightwear.
