There are a couple of tables and seats in the tea room, to allow people to rest.
Ji Chen is sitting in front of one of the tables at the moment, eating pastries while drinking tea.
Zhuang Nai Nai anxiously looks around after he said that. Lucky that they are the only people in the tea room at the moment.
She motions Ji Chen to stop talking before marching to him anxiously, “Don’t call me madam when we are out!”
Ji Chen raises his eyebrows, feeling somewhat scared over her approaching him.
He still remembers that goosebump-inducing glance that Mr. Si gave him earlier today.
Ji Chen inconspicuously stands up, putting some distance between them, “Why?”
Zhuang Nai Nai sits in front of him, looking quite pensive, “Si Zheng Ting didn’t tell anyone that he married me. There was no ceremony either. I think he want to keep this marriage hidden. I don’t think he want others to know that we are married.”
Is he embarrassed by her?
Gu Family is completely inferior to him to begin with; much less, she, this daughter who was raised as a commoner.
Zhuang Nai Nai remains quiet for a moment before lowering her head, “To put it simple, your sir will not like it if others find out.”
The corner of Ji Chen’s lips twitches when he hears that. He gives a long sigh.
After madam left sir years ago, she left a knot in his heart. Even though he likes her, he will not simply say it.
What about the madam?
She must be feeling guilty at the moment.
Ji Chen wants to say something, but the moment he lock eyes with Zhuang Nai Nai’s large and clear eyes, he freezes.
When he remembers Mr. Si’s earth-shattering jealousy earlier on, he decides that it is better not to get involved in this.
He must remember to put some distance from the madam from now on!
He nods at her, “I understand, madam. Then, I will leave first.” He walks out of the tea room.
Zhuang Nai Nai then, gets busy with the coffee.
She arranges the cups on a tray and lifts it up. Just as she walks past the door, she bumps into a woman.
The woman is immersed in her thoughts and hasn’t been paying attention to where she is going. In the end, they run into each other.
The content of one of the cups in the tray spills out, drenching the other girl’s dress.
Zhuang Nai Nai puts the tray aside before turning to the girl in alarm, “Are you okay? Did you get scalded?”
The girl looks at her own clothes before speaking towards Zhuang Nai Nai at the same time, “Sorry! Sorry! It was I who wasn’t paying attention while walking!”
Zhuang Nai Nai thought she was done for!
She is only a new worker and has now spilled coffee on another worker, they will not spare her!
She didn’t expect the other girl to be the one to do the apologizing.
She looks at the girl; she has a round face and short stature. She looks ordinary and kind.
The girl smiles at her, “I am fine, it didn’t scald me. I know you, you are the new worker. I am Zhang Ting Ting, from the Fashion Department.”
Zhang Ting Ting looks at the spilled coffee before clicking her tongue, “I was too preoccupied with a new design, so I didn’t pay attention to my surrounding. I am so sorry. Let me help you make a new one.”
Zhuang Nai Nai nods, “Sure.”
