“Phone?” Zhuang Nai Nai freezes. She takes out her phone from her bag. After pressing it for a while, she says, “This stupid phone is broken again!”
The housekeeper: …………..!!
Zhuang Nai Nai is preoccupied with her phone. She turns it around and takes off the battery before reinstalling it again. After she presses the power button, the sound of the phone turning on can be heard inside the living room.
She smiles in embarrassment before waving her arm dismissively at the housekeeper, “This—- Our local product is not very good.”
The housekeeper: ……………………
Zhuang Nai Nai outstretches her neck to look at the phone that has been smashed on the floor. It looks downright expensive, different from her broken one. She looks at Si Zheng Ting cautiously before asking, “What is wrong with your phone?”
Si Zheng Ting really does not know how to deal with her.
He loosens his tie once more, but the pressure on his chest does not disappear. He takes his tie off before unbuttoning the first button on his shirt. He tries his best to calm his breathing before finally saying, “It accidentally fell.”
Zhuang Nai Nai: …………….
Once everyone is quiet, Zhuang Nai Nai quietly climbs the stairs again before running to the bedroom. Her speed is truly remarkable.
The housekeeper is speechless when he sees that.
As for Si Zheng Ting, his heart turns heavy. Does she fear him that much? And…… He narrows his eyes. What happened to her face?
Zhuang Nai Nai is afraid even after taking cover inside the bedroom.
Lucky she was quick or else she would have become Si Zheng Ting’s punching bag.
She takes a deep breath as she sits in front of her vanity. As she stares at her own reflection, she can see red marks on her cheek. The redness of her cheek is glaringly obvious because her skin is in really good condition.
She touches it before trying to cover it with her hair. But even her hair cannot do a good job at covering the mark.
Just as she ponders over how to go through the night, she can hear the sound of the doorknob clicking.
She jumps up.
The moment Si Zheng Ting enters the room, Zhuang Nai Nai is already safely hidden inside the bathroom. She opens the tap, pretending to be bathing.
Si Zheng Ting changes outside. Once he is done, he stares at the glass door of the bathroom. He clenches his fist before relaxing it. Then, with a complicated expression, he walks to the bathroom.
As he does that, Zhuang Nai Nai’s phone suddenly rings.
He pauses in his steps, turning to look at her phone that is on top of the dresser.
He originally wants to ignore it, but it keeps ringing.
Si Zheng Ting picks up the phone. The name ‘Manager Wang’ flashes on the screen. This should be her boss.
He narrows his eyes as he glances at the bathroom again. Then, he accepts the call. Before he even speaks, the person on the other side of the line speaks first, glowering angrily into the speaker, “Zhuang Nai Nai, let me tell you this, you are done for! You are in deep trouble………….”
