Zhuang Nainai had intended to make her way straight to the bedroom upstairs and indulge in sadness for a while alone. Yet, once she turned around, she saw a woman sitting on the sofa in the living room!
Zhuang Nainai stopped in her tracks and fixed her gaze on that woman, who was initially reading a magazine silently with her head lowered. Upon hearing the sound from her, she raised her head and looked toward her. After she saw Zhuang Nainai, there weren’t any changes in her facial expression. She simply stretched out her hands, raised a teacup from the coffee table, and took a sip.
The butler immediately refilled her teacup. “Madam, don’t drink too much tea at night.”
It turned out to be Ding Mengya!
Wasn’t she on an overseas trip?
Why was she back?
While Zhuang Nainai was caught by surprise, Si Zhengting had already entered with light footsteps. Yet, upon seeing Ding Mengya, he showed a slightly astonished look on his poker face. It was evident that he hadn’t been informed in advance either.
Si Zhengting instinctively looked toward Zhuang Nainai. Upon seeing her usual expression, he strangely heaved a sigh of relief.
He then undid his tie and asked coldly, “Why didn’t you inform us first that you were coming back?”
Ding Mengya grinned. “If I were to inform you first, how can I give you a surprise? Mr. Si, I was away for so many days, did you miss me?”
Si Zhengting coughed. “Mother, as an elder, please show some respect for yourself.”
“I’m already so old, what’s there to respect? Look at you, can’t you just stop putting on airs? You’re so young but so serious all day, strangers might even think that you’re overflowing with lewd desires that cannot be satisfied!”
Si Zhengting narrowed his eyes. “Mother, what are you talking about?”
Ding Mengya knew that even though her son was powerful and formidable, he was very shy about these things. As such, how could she dare to repeat herself again?
If she dared to, Si Zhengting would definitely dare to ignore her for a month.
Ding Mengya quickly laughed very gently and changed the topic, “Zhengting, are you hungry? Mother cooked boiled duck soup for you today. Drink a bit of it to reduce your internal heat! Alright alright, hurry, wash up and eat.”
Si Zhengting then snorted contentedly, grabbed Zhuang Nainai’s wrist, and headed upstairs.
Zhuang Nainai lowered her head as she entered. While she was deliberating how to say that she didn’t want to eat with Ding Mengya, she then heard Si Zhengting saying, “I’ll ask Uncle Lee to bring your food up later.”
Zhuang Nainai was stunned. She raised her head and saw Si Zhengting walking past her and entering the bathroom.
His silhouette looked just as cold and nonchalant as his usual self. Yet, that sentence a moment ago had warmed her heart.
At this moment, Zhuang Nainai knew that she should be magnanimous and let bygones be bygones. At the very least, she shouldn’t appear to be pettier than Ding Mengya.
However… at the thought of Mother Zhuang’s condition all these years, she had the sudden urge to act willfully.
She felt that… in this whole life, it was probably impossible for her and Ding Mengya to sincerely have a meal together on the same table.
The butler brought a portion of the dishes up for Zhuang Nainai to eat.
After she had finished eating quietly in the room alone, she then began to scroll through her cell phone while feeling bored.
The light in the bedroom was very dim. The faint yellow light of the bedside lamp made people feel sleepy.
However, Zhuang Nainai couldn’t fall asleep. She looked at her cell phone – it’s been an hour but Si Zhengting still hadn’t come up.
Was he really eating so slowly, or was he unhappy with her for failing to see the big picture just now?
Zhuang Nainai felt slightly uneasy; she couldn’t even focus on the melodramatic romantic television drama that she was most interested in.
She then sat up, wore her slippers, and intended to go out and take a look.
Yet, just as she was walking toward the door, her cell phone suddenly rang. She lowered her head and looked – it was Gu Deshou.
