Finally finished Book 1 !!! (ﾉ^ヮ^)ﾉ*:・ﾟ✧
I’d like to thank everyone for their support ❤
Now that it’s finished, I plan on taking a week or so break first before continuing on with Book 2. (However, if anyone else decides to translate the 2nd book, please give me a heads up so I know beforehand.)
On a side note, it seems Xin Lian isn’t as naive as we thought her to be! 🙂
“There was no need to trouble yourself in going there. So what was it?”
She took out the pair of glasses from her bag, but kept the ear-piece receivers hidden from him. “Here, is this yours? I’ve never seen you wear it before, and was thinking if there was a mistake?”
Zhong Zhen Dong saw the glasses and raised his eyebrows. He remembered something, and then very naturally took it and smiled. “That’s right, it’s mine.”
Tang Xin Lian still had her head down, but was still shaken because of his words.
He said it was his! He didn’t deny it! This was obviously left behind by some other man, but he said it was his. This meant that he had someone place the security camera in her apartment… He was monitoring her?
“There was only this pair of glasses? Is there anything else?”
“No… I’m tired, I want to go rest.”
Zhong Zhen Dong figured the receivers were probably lost, so he didn’t pay any attention to it.
“My little darling was startled today, come, let me properly give you some love.”
His so-called ‘love’ was kissing her, but she was unable to accept it right now. She had successfully kept him in the dark, not letting him see anything unusual, but that didn’t mean she could keep it hidden forever. Once he found out, she wouldn’t be able to escape, thus, she hurriedly buried her face in his chest.
“I want to drink tofu-egg drop soup, can you go make it for me?”
She rarely acted spoiled, so her request caused Zhong Zhen Dong’s eyes to shine.
Ever since the little white rabbit followed him, he’d never seen her act like a spoiled child. In many of the situations, he had to coax, kidnap, and lie, to make her do something. For example, moving into a new house, and letting the little rascal transfer schools.
Even though they were intimate, she never changed. In most cases, she wanted to rely on herself. Could it be that she didn’t know he already knew about her secretly looking for a job?
Her acting spoiled meant that she’d become more dependent on him, so he naturally didn’t refuse. Moreover, making egg drop soup was a simple matter. Even though his cooking skills weren’t on par with other people, it wasn’t so hard, so he consented to the request.
Taking advantage of him going to the kitchen to prepare the soup, she seized the chance to separate herself from his embrace and went to the bathroom to wash her face. Taking a deep breath, she started to mentally prepare herself.
After Zhong Zhen Dong finished making the soup, she obediently sat in the dining room, clasped the bowl, and lowered her head to slowly drink it.
Zhong Zhen Dong hugged her and sighed. “Why are you so timid? I won’t be here the next few days, so what are you going to do all alone?”
Hearing this, it seemed like he was going far away. Her heart was overjoyed as she carefully lowered her head.
“It would be strange if I wasn’t startled after seeing someone die right in front of me… I’m tired. I want to go rest. Maybe after a nap, I’ll be more lively.”
Because she didn’t seem lively the whole time and looked like she needed the rest, Zhong Zhen Dong gave up the idea of eating her and stopped touching her. This caused her to rejoice at having escaped a calamity. After that, he really did have plans to leave the country. He told her he had to board a plane tomorrow.
She buried her face into his chest to conceal her happiness, and proceeded to tell him that he had to take care of himself so she wouldn’t worry.
This soft tone she used made him feel really happy. At night, she deliberately stuck to her son. As long as she was sleeping with her son, Zhong Zhen Dong was unlikely to touch her.
Luckily, he didn’t prevent her from doing so, and only looked at her with a gloomy expression.
“I’m leaving tomorrow, aren’t you going to sleep with your husband?”
She didn’t dare refuse his request, so she could only pretend to happily say, “Then how about the three of us sleep together?”
Like she expected, this suggestion caused his interest to dwindle. In the end, he declined, but she still couldn’t fall asleep. Her brain was thinking of ways to run away.
Enduring until the next day, she pretended to be reluctant to part with him. After Zhong Zhen Dong left, she continued pretending because she didn’t know if there were any surveillance cameras in the house. Just in case, she had to be cautious and vigilant.
She suspected the chauffeur Zhong Zhen Dong left behind was there to monitor her, so she casually sat in the car with her son to go to school. As usual, she let the driver take her to buy groceries as well.
On Saturday, she helped her son prepare a simple luggage and asked the driver to take them to a classmate’s house. She said that she arranged with the classmate’s family to attend a 2-day, 1-night vacation. She then asked the driver to pick them up on Monday.
The driver didn’t suspect anything, and after watching the mother and son arrive at the door, he left.
After waiting for the chauffeur to leave, Tang Xin Lian immediately grabbed her son and called a cab to go straight to the airport. She bought the tickets and they got on a plane, escaping to America – –
