Chapter 120: Don’t Give Gifts, Just Give Money! (2)
“Go now, shoo!” Zhang Guifang put on a look of disdain as she quickly chased them away, almost as if she didn’t even want to take another look at them.
“Goodbye, auntie.” Su Yaya gave her a polite goodbye.
“Remember to take your medicine.” Zhang Guifang liked her very much. She didn’t forget to remind her about her medicine when she left.
No matter how spoiled Su Yaya was, she wouldn’t try to act cute in front of her. Zhang Guifang said this for her own good after all. She simply nodded and responded, “I will, auntie.”
“Good. Come over to play when you have the time,” Zhang Guifang said.
Su Yaya replied happily, “Okay!”
The longer she looked at her, the more Zhang Guifang liked her. While smiling, she watched them leave in their car before going back in.
On the ride back, Chen Xiuqi spoke as he drove, “It seems my second aunt likes you a lot.”
Su Yaya smiled cheerfully. “Of course! I’m so cute after all.”
“That’s just narcissism!” Chen Xiuqi glanced over at her. Su Yaya had a sweet smile on her face, it revealed the cute little dimples on her cheeks. She was really beautiful, and she really did have the right to be a narcissist.
Once they returned home, Chen Xiuqi brought the medicine into the kitchen. Su Yaya paced about behind him, giving it a chance by begging, “Can I not drink it?”
Chen Xiuqi gave her a cold look when he saw her like this. “You promised auntie.”
“Hubby~,” Su Yaya said in a spoiled manner as she tugged at his sleeve with her petite hands.
Chen Xiuqi responded with a straight face, “It’s no use even if you call me God. You have to drink your medicine.”
Su Yaya pouted her lips when he said this.
Once Chen Xiuqi saw this, he pinched her cheeks and teased her, “If you pout your lips any higher I’ll be able to put soy sauce bottles on them.”
So, Su Yaya could only put her lips back down.
Chen Xiuqi chuckled at the playful girl before him. He turned around and opened the cupboard, took out a large bowl, and poured in some hot water. After taking a pack of medicine from the plastic bag, he put it into the hot water for a while. When the bag was just about hot enough to drink, he poured away the hot water and cut out a slit into the bag, pouring the dark liquid into the bowl.
Su Yaya stood right next to him while he did this. When she smelled the scent of bitterness from the concoction, she quickly covered her nose with a frown on her face, “I’m gonna be sick…”
Chen Xiuqi looked over to her and saw her puffing her cheeks in angry. Even her face had turned red. After moving the medicine away, Su Yaya finally took a deep sigh of relief.
“What can I do to convince you to drink this?” Chen Xiuqi could only look on helplessly at her. “You told auntie that you’d take your medicine for the sake of your health. Is that all your guarantee is worth? Should I call auntie and tell her you won’t drink it? It’ll probably be better if she just keeps you in her office.”
When Su Yaya saw that he was going to take out his phone, she quickly stopped him. “No, don’t. Don’t call auntie.”
Even though she and Zhang Guifang had only spent two hours together in the afternoon, she could still see that Zhang Guifang was a very good person. She really liked her from the bottom of her heart. Su Yaya didn’t want to make her unhappy by having her find out she didn’t want to take the medicine prescribed for her. She still wanted to leave a good impression to her seniors.
Chen Xiuqi sighed. Really, what was he going to do with her? After reaching out to carry her, he placed her on the counter. Once he finished planting a kiss on her forehead, he tried to coax her gently, “My sweet darling, how am I going to get you to drink your medicine?”
“I’m scared of the bitterness.” Su Yaya kept her head down.
Chen Xiuqi placed his hand on her chin, raising her head to make her look at him. “Then I’ll add sugar for you.”
Su Yaya responded with a quiet hum.
Chen Xiuqi brought out the sugar jar from the cupboard, he then stirred in two tablespoons into the medicine. After doing so, he brought the medicine in front of Su Yaya. “You can drink it now, right?”
