Chapter 112: Clash (1)
Lin Shuhao carried Lin Xin in his arms. When they reached downstairs, the siblings got into the car.
“Why is this Lin Xinyu’s private life so chaotic? I used to think he was good. Hmm, I didn’t expect him to have this side.”
Reclined in her seat, Lin Xin had regained a little strength.
“Did Wu Anan kick you?” she asked.
“That woman’s name is Wu Anan? You know her?”
Lin Xin said, “No, I heard Mr. Lin call her that.”
After an ‘oh’, Lin Shuhao said, “It’s nothing.”
Right at this moment, Lin Xin’s mobile phone buzzed, a text message appeared on the screen. It was by Wang Changding: Is everything all right?
Lin Xin sent a polite reply: [Nothing, just a little tired.]
Wang Changding: [Be careful on the road, let’s meet again.]
Lin Xin: [OK.]
When Lin Shuhao noticed her texting, he asked, “Wang Changding?”
Lin Xin nodded. “Mm-hmm.”
“What do you think of him?”
Lin Xin thought for a moment and said, “Not bad; refined and courteous, he makes a good marriage partner.”
“Don’t just think about getting married,” said her brother. “You have to like him as well.”
“I don’t hate him,” Lin Xin said.
As for love, she didn’t like anyone. What’s more, she didn’t know how it felt. If it’s like that fiery sensation described in books, she seemed to have never felt it for anyone. As for Lin Xinyu, she used to take care of him like kin.
When I learned from Amy Zhen that he had feelings for her as a man and a woman, my heart was very confused. What kind of mentality were you thinking about facing him? Who would like a man who watched him grow up and had nothing to do with him as a son? It was strange to see him courting people who looked exactly like she used to be.
She couldn’t take it before, much less now. She had a good life, her parents and family were happy, and she as well.
What Lin Xin did not expect was for Wang Changding to launch a strong offensive against her. The next day he showed up with a bouquet of roses in hand. Surprised, Lin Shuhao looked at the red roses with dew and joked. “Wang Changding, how many are there? 99 or 101?”
Wang Changding smiled and said, “52.”
Lin Shuhao said, “Oh, I’m good at making up numbers.”
Wang Changding flashed a shy smile in response. When he saw Lin Xin, who had slowly walked down the stairs, he said, “I’m free today. I wonder if Miss Lin will be able to accompany me to a concert.”
Where a phone call would have sufficed, he’d especially come over with flowers. How could anyone refuse?
Lin Xin wasn’t a little girl who didn’t know anything. The two families had a business relationship. Besides, she’s going to get married, and if she didn’t hate him, she might as well try dating him.
Lin Xin accepted Wang Changding’s invitation. The concert was to begin at 7:30 in the evening. Lin Xin was not in good health, so she did not have dinner with him. He agreed to pick her up at about 6:30 after Lin Xin had dinner.
It was such a joy that Lin Shuhao didn’t go to the office all afternoon. He was at home helping his sister pick an outfit. He chose a small white dress that was a little above the knees, rolled up her hair and fastened it with a small diamond tiara. With a touch of makeup, the look was complete.
As he looked at Lin Xin in the mirror, Lin Shuhao said, “My sister is the most beautiful little princess in the world.”
If in the past, Lin Xin would certainly rip off this Lolita costume and replace it. It was unknown if it was because she didn’t go out often or because she was weak and sickly since young. Her skin was transparent and white, and blushes could be seen on it. Childlike, it looked as if she was at most seventeen or eighteen.
She especially pretended to be tender, hehe~
Lin Xin asked, “Lin Shuhao, don’t you think that if I dress like this, people will think that Wang Changding and I are uncle and niece?”
Lin Shuhao patted her head and said, “Oh, I didn’t expect that. I don’t think Changding will mind this kind of thing.”
Lin Xin wanted to say that she didn’t mind if he could make her look 24 years old. In the end, she only kept it in her heart. He likes it. That’s it. It’s just a dress. It’s nothing.
In the evening, right on time, Wang Changding came to pick up Lin Xin. When he saw her dressed like a little princess he was stunned. He said, “Miss Lin is so beautiful today.”
Lin Xin caught a twinkle in his eyes. She reckoned he’s probably sparing her pride, speaking sweet nothings. Honestly, to call yourself a normal man when you like girls more than a decade younger than yourself… when you walk on the streets, aren’t you afraid of being mistaken for kidnappers?
Lin Xin secretly twisted Lin Shuhao’s arm: How humiliating it is for you to make me dress like this!
