Chapter 194: “Are the days before marriage even worth being compared to the days after?” (2)
“Haha, there’s no need to rethink it. Why should I waste my time on it? Zhuang Zhu’s interest in me is only temporary anyway. He’ll forget about me once another woman catches his eye. I don’t need to worry about it.”
Xin Siyue looked at her and remarked bluntly, “But why do I feel like you’re upset?”
Something flickered in Zhong Qin’s eyes before she rigidly changed the topic. “Let’s not talk about him anymore. Let me interview Mrs. Chen, who has been promoted to a married woman, instead. How is life after marriage?”
“Pretty good,” she responded with a laugh.
“Tut-tut, how envious.”
“Don’t envy me. You’ll be the same sooner or later, and who knows? Maybe you’ll be even happier than me.”
“That’s true.” Zhong Qin smiled, and afterward, the two moved on to other topics.
It was 10PM when they finished chatting, eating, and shopping. They walked out of the shopping mall with several bags in hand. When Zhong Qin asked her where she’d parked her car, Xin Siyue responded, “I encountered a little accident while driving home yesterday, so Chen Sinan drove me today. My car isn’t here.”
“Envious!” Zhong Qin said. “Then how about I drive you back today, Mrs. Chen?”
They lived in opposite directions, so if she took up Zhong Qin’s offer, it would be midnight before Zhong Qin herself got home. “No, that would be too much trouble for you. I’ll call Chen Sinan to pick me up.”
As soon as her words fell, she heard a low voice coming from behind her. It is a naturally familiar voice. She turned around and said, “Why are you here?”
Chen Sinan, who was only two steps away from her, bent down slightly to take the bags from her hands.
“I’ve been waiting for you for a long time.” He’d called her after his meeting, but she didn’t answer. He assumed she didn’t notice, so he called Zhuang Zhu and asked him where Zhong Qin was.
When they were talking last night, he remembered Zhuang Zhu saying that he would go to Zhong Qin’s company entrance every day after work to see her.
As expected, Zhuang Zhu immediately gave an address.
When the two of them met up, they saw the girls strolling through the mall. Instead of disturbing them, they went upstairs and enjoyed a leisurely meal together. Of course, only Chen Sinan was completely at leisure. Zhuang Zhu was still recovering from his emotional injury. They only showed up when they saw that the girls were getting ready to leave.
Zhong Qin was just about to tease the Chen couple when she suddenly noticed Zhuang Zhu standing behind Chen Sinan.
He was wearing a black short-sleeved shirt, and his eyes were shining as he looked at her. She thought it was a terrible feeling, so she hurriedly said to Xin Siyue, “Siyue, since you have someone to take you home, I’ll be leaving first.”
“Alright.” Xin Siyue understood.
However, unfortunately for Zhong Qin, Zhuang Zhu immediately went after her. Xin Siyue couldn’t help but call his name, “Zhuang Zhu!”
The man looked back and shouted in a hurry, “Sister-in-law, I’ll invite you to dinner next time!”
Xin Siyue: “…” Why are you inviting me to dinner for no reason?
“We should let them figure this out on their own. Let’s not interfere anymore.”
She understood that, but… “I’m just a little worried.”
“If love was completely smooth-sailing, then you should be worried.”
“Mhm, what Mr. Chen said makes sense.” She smiled as she looked at him.
Chen Sinan didn’t say any more.
In September, when school began again for students, Dean Zhao called Chen Sinan and invited him to give an inspirational speech to the new students. He immediately declined.
As a result, Dean Zhao called Xin Siyue the next day, hoping she could help persuade Chen Sinan. Though Chen Sinan had graduated a few years ago, he was still an undefeated legend in the school.
Xin Siyue suddenly remembered the matter of the design drawing. “Dean, don’t tell me if it was Mo Shiyuan who gave you this time?”
Dean Zhao brushed it off with a laugh and didn’t respond.
When Xin Siyue brought it up to Chen Sinan that night, she felt a little complicated. “They sure know how to use their resources! Since they couldn’t convince you directly, they called me instead. Is my face that easy to use?”
Chen Sinan held her in his arms and pressed a smile against her forehead. “Is it? How about you try and see?” he incited.
Her happy eyes filled with triumph. “Fortunately, we’re not in the ancient times. If you were a king in the ancient times, you would be a king who was misled by a beauty!”
“Oh? So, beauty, are you going to seduce me?”
“I can consider it.”
Xin Siyue laughed and turned her body, pressing herself on him. Then, just as he had done before, she leaned down and engaged their lips and tongues in a passionate dance…
