As Zhuang Nai Nai rushes out of the house, she bumps into Lin Xi Er who is returning home to eat.
Lin Xi Er is a friend that she grew up with. The house that they are currently renting belongs to Lin Xi Er’s family.
This area of Beijing is very cheap and Lin Xi Er is a very close friend of Zhuang Nai Nai. They can be considered as bosom friends. They share everything together.
Lin Xi Er excitedly greets Zhuang Nai Nai, “Nai Nai!”
Just as Zhuang Nai Nai is about to greet her back, Lin Xi Er’s face changes. She touches Zhuang Nai Nai’s cheek, “S*it, what’s wrong with your face? Who did this?”
Zhuang Nai Nai realizes that her cheek must have gotten swollen.
How on earth is she going to face Si Zheng Ting with this kind of face?
Zhuang Nai Nai drags Lin Xi Er back to her place, “Let’s go to your house. Put some medicine on my cheek.”
Lin Xi Er’s house is a two-storey house not far away. Lin Xi Er boils an egg and peels it’s skin before placing it against Zhuang Nai Nai’s cheek while listening to the other’s story. She is angered beyond belief, “That Xue Rong has no brain! She has no eyes! I bet she don’t even know who she just hit! Slapping her back is too easy on her, you should have added some interest, you should have done more!”
Zhuang Nai Nai laughs, but only ends up hurting her cheek, “Do you think this is a loan? Adding interest and all?”
“Once Mr. Si finds out about this, Xue Rong’s dad is going to be finished!”
Zhuang Nai Nai freezes when she hears that, “Do not tell Si Zheng Ting about this.”
Lin Xi Er is taken aback, “Why?”
“I don’t want him to see the pathetic side of me.” Zhuang Nai Nai takes a deep breath.
Lin Xi Er: ……….
Everyone has their own ego.
Zhuang Nai Nai does not want to be looked down by Si Zheng Ting, so she does not have the plan to let him know this. She laughs, changing the topic, “How are you and your boyfriend, Xi Er?”
Lin Xi Er’s eyes light up upon the mentioning of her boyfriend, “We are doing fine!”
Zhuang Nai Nai eats lunch at Lin Xi Er’s place and ends up leaving at 5pm after chatting with Lin Xi Er’s mom. By then, the swelling on her face has subsided, leaving only a little trace.
It may be overlooked if one does not look properly.
Where is she going to go?
She hears that Si Zheng Ting is a workaholic, he will not leave work unless it is 8 pm. Will there be problem if she visit him in the company?
Remembering the embarrassing incident in which she was thrown out, Zhuang Nai Nai decided to just wait at home.
Since it is a rush hour, she does not reach home even after 7 pm.
At the same time, the Si Household is pretty much a battlefield.
There is an inexplicable force of oppression inside the house.
The maids are doing their jobs with utmost care, not even daring to make too much sound while walking.
Si Zheng Ting is sitting expressionlessly on the couch, cold air radiating from him. People are too afraid to even breathe.
The housekeeper looks at the clock; why isn’t the madam home yet?
Just as he thinks of that, they can hear the sound of engine from outside.
