Chapter 57: Shen Shaonu
I had no reason, so I continued to be a hypocrite, “Umm.. go if you want to. It’s not like you will lose a piece of meat.”
Oh yeah! Don’t you normally like to do the opposite of what I say? Go and fight me! Go against me! Use your malicious mouth and devilish heart to attack me!!! Hurry!
“Alright. I will go.” Suyang clapped his hand and decided.
“Thank you, God! I have finally completed my assignment. Thank you, Yixin.” Shen Shaoqian grabbed my hand to show his appreciation.
Hearing Suyang’s answer, I felt like a leaking balloon. I sat down on the sofa in low spirits. After bitterly smiling, I wanted to punch Shen Shaoqian’s handsome face a few times.
Thank Socialism for saving you. From now on, live kindly! (tl: I don’t get it…)
I was so sad…. Now I have finally experienced what “curiosity killed the cat” meant!
Today was one of the most depressing days of my life. In the morning, I watched Suyang get ready to go on a blind date with the reporter.
When we had our fake date, he didn’t even attempt to dress up! Humph!
Suyang was fixing his hair as he said to me, “I might not be home for dinner tonight. There’s no need to wait for me.”
“Ok.” My mind was all over the place as I recklessly pound the keys on my laptop.
“Also, there are no more popsicles in the fridge. Make sure you buy them before I return. I want the mung bean flavour. Twenty of them. Understand?”
“Alright! Why do you have so much garbage to say today? Hurry and go! I will deal with the stuff at home. You don’t have to worry about it!” I roughly closed my laptop and yelled at Suyang.
“Why are you….so….” It was rare for Suyang to recoil, “I am leaving… why are you rushing me…!”
After Suyang closed the door, I couldn’t suppress my frustrations any longer. I took off my slipper and threw it onto the ground. “Ah!!! I’m so annoyed! Ahhhhh!!”
After calming down, I took a deep breath and held onto the wall. I imitated Suyang’s tone of voice from earlier, “I might not be home for dinner tonight. There is no need to wait for me….humph! You think I’m going to wait for you?! Don’t overestimate yourself! While you’re not home, I’m going to eat everything. I won’t even leave a tiny pea for you! Don’t come home for dinner. If you have game, don’t come home to sleep!”
I reclined on the sofa again and opened my laptop.
My keyboard was making kaka noises, and there were a bunch of nonsense characters displayed on the monitor. Did my laptop crash?
Uggh, even my laptop was against me.
“No. You need to wake up, Lin Yixin. You cannot like Suyang! He is like the Sun in the sky. He isn’t someone an ordinary person like yourself can have. It’s better you give up early and be his honest assistant. Your current life is quite good. Don’t be upset over something like this, understand? It’s not like he’s your boyfriend. You have no right to get angry or upset.” I stared at my black screen laptop and reminded myself.
But the more that I said, the more upset I felt. By the end of it, I dejectedly rolled off the sofa and laid on the ground.
Suyang had already left for thirty minutes. They have probably met by now.
What are they doing after they meet? Eating? Chatting? Watching a movie?
If they are eating, what type of food are they eating? Could they be dining at a romantic western restaurant? Or perhaps having elegant Japanese cuisine? Or friendly Chinese food?
It seemed like Suyang was quite interested in Mi Fan. They should be having a great time?! Suyang and Mi Fan….
I shouldn’t be thinking of this. But I couldn’t control myself. I moaned about my imaginary illness as I continuously rolled across the floor.
I rolled from the living room wall, all the way to the living room window. Back and forth.
Another thirty minutes had passed –
“Ah! He had already left for an hour! But he still hasn’t returned!” I bellowed. Although Suyang told me not to wait on him for dinner, deep down, I was secretly hoping that the door will open the very next second.
Now, I somewhat understood how pets feel when they are left at home by themselves.
*Di di di di* Someone was pressing the password by the door.
Was Suyang back? I hastily stood up and pretended none of this had happened. I randomly grabbed a book from the bookshelf and hopped onto the sofa as I opened it. I must give Suyang the misconception that I had been reading the entire time.
After half a day later, the buzzer was still beeping, but the door hasn’t opened.
I thought it was strange, so I went to open the door.
The moment I pulled the door open, I saw a girl bending down with a red notebook filled with different combinations. It appeared she was attempting to try all the combinations.
When she saw me, she was stupefied.
“What is that?” I spoke to her like an adult as I expressionlessly pointed at the notebook she was holding.
“This isn’t Suyang’s…..sorry! Looks like I went to the wrong place….” The young teenage girl muttered to herself.
“You are a thief?” I didn’t know where I had the guts to confront her so openly.
“No no!” The girl instantly waved her hands. Then, she looked at the number of the apartment and seemed to hesitate. However, she quickly gave me an explanation, “I came to find someone. But I may have entered the wrong floor. Just in case, I want to know if this is Suyang’s home?”
This girl looks like around seventeen or eighteen years of age. She was wearing a school uniform and had a name tag: Chengxin Female High, Shen Shaonu.
A High school student?
“This is Suyang’s place. But you are…”
“If this is Suyang brother’s place, then who are you?” In literally a second, the girl’s eyes flashed. She went from kind to hostile. In the blink of an eye, she turned from an angel to a devil.
“Oh! I know!” Shaonu smacked her her, “You’re the cleaning auntie, right? Suyang brother is so ridiculous. If he wanted someone to clean for him, he could’ve simply ask me. Why waste money to hire a cleaning maid?” As she was speaking, she was about to enter.
The words collapsed on me like a rock. It was as if they had directly landed on my heart. I was injured everywhere…
“Stop right there!” I blocked the entrance with one hand. I refuse to let this punk inside, “Is this your home? You think you can enter whenever you want?”
“Auntie, you’re too conservative!” Shaonu laughed at me, “I know the owner of this place. If you don’t believe me, give him a call.”
“You punk. The owner you’re looking for isn’t here right now. There’s only another owner in here that doesn’t know you. And that is me!”
“Auntie, what are you trying to say? Could it be that you live here?” Shaonu’s eyes narrowed. “What is your relationship with Suyang brother?”
