Chapter 35: Misunderstanding
Even Mao Shiyuan thought that in this lifetime, the only person that could move Chen Sinan’s heart was Sheng Wenyang.
After the two drank some wine, they bade farewell to each other and went their separate ways.
Chen Sinan encountered Weng Yinlin at the entrance of his apartment. She had waited there for him for 10 minutes already. He rubbed his faintly throbbing temples and put up a smile, “Mom, how come you’re here?”
Weng Yinlin was angered by him to the point that she already had one foot in her coffin. In a bad mood, she replied: “If I didn’t come here, then I wouldn’t be able to see my son again for most of the month!
Chen Sinan lazily turned his head and looked away. He didn’t know what these elders were doing– were they bothered about how there was nothing to do, so they just started randomly worried about him?
Weng Yinlin saw that he didn’t speak and that he even held a contemplative expression on his face. She followed his line of sight and saw that his gaze was fixed on the neighbor’s door. After staring at it for a few seconds, she suddenly understood and stated, “It turns out the reason you kept refusing our matchmaking was because you liked the girl living next door!”
Chen Sinan didn’t even think and immediately replied: “She moved away!”
What he wanted to express was that she no longer lived here and that they no longer had any relations with each other.
Also, to prevent her from falling again one day and becoming abnormal, he had already bought the apartment from the owner at a high price, so that she can no longer move back.
However, in Weng Yinlin’s ears, it came across differently. The thoughts that arose in her heart were: ‘Ah, his tone was filled with hidden bitterness. It sounded just like he was abandoned!’
Then she thought about it some more. That day, the girl’s attitude did not reveal any interest. It must be that she had no thoughts for him, otherwise, she would not have moved away so suddenly!
Weng Yinlin became elated when she realized that there was someone who actually didn’t like her son. It should be known that Chen Sinan had been receiving love letters since preschool. Whenever he spoke about girls, he always had this proud and overbearing aura around him, making her very angry!
Rarely were there people that can cause him to be humiliated!
Weng Yinlin immediately smiled and inquired, “What is the name of that girl? Where does she come from?”
Chen Sinan looked at his mother strangely, “Mom, what do you want to do?”
Weng Yinlin replied: “If you like someone, you should just say it outright. Just look at your qualifications, are you still afraid that the girl won’t be moved?”
Chen Sinan quickly realized what his mother had misunderstood.
“Mom, there isn’t anything between me and that girl.”
“Mom knows, but you’re a male after all. Being a little more proactive won’t hurt. Maybe if you are a little more proactive, the girl will be moved! You should listen and do as I say. Don’t always go around with that stiff expression on your face. Smile more, girls prefer men who are gentler and more considerate…”
Chen Sinan shook his head helplessly. He was too lazy to even explain and allowed her to continue and misunderstand. Anyways, it’s better than having her always shove females toward him.
Since Weng Yinlin thought that his heart was already set on that girl, she didn’t bother him for a good half month. Mao Shiyuan also truly kept Chen Sinan’s words, “don’t bring her up again” in his heart. Even after several meetings, he only brought up matters regarding the new company, no longer mentioning Xin Siyue’s name.
Chen Sinan continued to busy himself with work every day. However, he inexplicably felt that something was missing in his life. After he thought carefully about it, he felt that this kind of normal lifestyle was correct; there wasn’t anything wrong, so he no longer thought about it deeply.
It wasn’t until he was on a business trip and attending a birthday celebration that he realized what was missing. When he saw Xin Siyue in a white off-the-shoulder dress at the same venue as him, Chen Sinan finally discovered what his monotonous life was missing.
