Chapter 117: He’s Mine (2)
Zhou Xiaoxiao pinched her and said, “Fine. You can go if you like. I had prepared ‘mandarin ducks’ hotpot this afternoon. You can choose whether to come or not.”
Chu Yunyun hurriedly held onto Zhou Xiaoxiao’s arms and wagged her invisible tail.
“Of course I’m coming. Xiaoxiao, your cooking skills are incomparable to anyone else and I am your fan. No matter how handsome he said, he can’t seduce me away from your dining table”
The two enjoyed their time eating hotpot in Zhou Xiaoxiao’s home.
They had eaten too much and both laid on Zhou Xiaoxiao’s bed, remaining unmoved.
Chu Yunyun rubbed her round stomach and stared at the newly hung picture frame on her wall.
“Eh? Xiaoxiao, you changed to drawing in an ancient style? This is a really good drawing and looks exactly like how ancient people would look like. It reveals a gentleman-like temperament.”
Zhou Xiaoxiao sighed and said, “I didn’t do the best. He looks way better than how I had drawn him.”
“Real person? Model?” Chu Yunyun rolled over and shook Zhou Xiaoxiao’s shoulders as if her life depended on it. “You’re so bad. You even hid this handsome model from me.”
Zhou Xiaoxiao smiled and took out a sketchbook from the drawer of her bed. “I drew many portraits. Take a look.”
“Whoa, he’s playing the guqin. So charming.”
“He also knows how to ride a horse, hehe. He’s so handsome.”
“Oh my, he’s wearing his armor and covered in blood on the battlefield. Cool.”
“This…this…my heart can’t take it. How can you only draw half of this? Where’s the other half? Give me it! Give me!”
Chu Yunyun pounced on Zhou Xiaoxiao.
The page Chu Yunyun flipped to, on the sketchbook, contained the body of half a man. He was naked and his hair scattered down his shoulder, looking embarrassed.
He extended his arm and covered his blushed face.
Zhou Xiaoxiao laughed loudly and panted, grabbing Chu Yunyun’s hands and saying, “He’s mine, so I obviously can’t let you see him.”
Chu Yunyun shockingly raised his head and said, “You…you had won him over?”
Zhou Xiaoxiao sat up and flipped through the sketchbook pages.
“Right, I like him a lot and he’s very nice to me.”
“You, you…when did this happen? How come I don’t know? What’s his job? What stage are you guys up to?”
Zhou Xiaoxiao softly caressed the man in the drawing and said, “I did everything I could do to him already.”
Chu Yunyun squealed like a chipmunk and said, “Xiaoxiao, you’re so good at hiding this. Quickly bring him out and let us meet him. No wonder you don’t care about Xue Chunjian, that scum. One is Heaven and the other is dirt!”
While Zhou Xiaoxiao was dreaming, she returned to Champion Marquis residence again.
Her body remained stiff and expressionless like usual.
Yu Xingzhi was by her side.
Gongsun Yu stood in front of them and stared at Zhou Xiaoxiao, tears falling down her face. She knelt and kowtowed her.
“I originally have no purpose to live in this world, but you have done your best to bring me back from the gate of hell. I can’t fail your friendship and care.” She wiped her tears away and said, “I will keep living well for you, sister-in-law. I will make sure to anger those who hate me.”
Yu Xingzhi stared at Zhou Xiaoxiao and said, “Xiaoxiao has always liked you. You can tell me whatever plans you have for the future and I will help you.”
Gongsun Yu saluted and said, “I originally planned to take care of sister-in-law, but since she has you…who is so detailed and cautious, there is no need for me to stay here anymore. After all, our statuses don’t allow us to be in the same room as one another. If you allow me to stay in this residence, there may be rumors about us. Even more, sister-in-law may be unhappy if she heard this.”
