Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
She had an intuition.
Something big must have happened to the Xiao family for an heir of the family lineage to die an untimely death. Looking at it now, this untimely death might just be a hoax.
It was because Xiao Muqing and Gu Deshou had eloped.
The only person who knew what exactly happened at that time would be Gu Deshou, who was personally involved.
Perhaps… someone else might know too. That person would be Mother Ding.
At the thought of Mother Ding, Zhuang Nainai suddenly felt rather troubled.
After she had fallen off the stairs in an attempt to protect her, it was as if she had vanished into thin air as Si Zhengting had housed her in the villa to recuperate.
However, did Mother Ding really lose her memory? Or was it a pretense?
Zhuang Nainai sighed deeply.
She realized that if she wanted to meet Mother Ding and find out the truth, she would have to see Si Zhengting.
But… at the thought of the steamy night yesterday and how her body was still sore, she suddenly did not dare to meet Si Zhengting.
In the future… how was she going to face him and her children?
The matter, which had been left in the back of her mind, had surfaced again, causing her to be at a loss for what to do.
Holding the two photos, she sat on the bed dejectedly.
Then, she grabbed her phone and switched it on.
The moment the phone was switched on, she saw a few missed calls. A few were from Xu Dazhi while a few were from Si Zhengting. However, she could not even muster the courage to call either of them back.
Si Zhengting walked out of the hotel after changing his clothes. He could not find Zhuang Nainai, and he was scared that she was experiencing some emotional distress. Hence, he got on the car, intending to head to Xibali village to look for her.
Just as he hopped into the car, his phone rang. Thinking that the call was from Zhuang Nainai, he looked down, only to realize it was from Madam Ding.
Si Zhengting picked up the call and heard Madam Ding’s voice. “Zhengting, what you did last night… is way too reckless. Uncle Liu is already in his sixties or seventies. After you pranked him like that, he called to complain.”
When he heard this, Si Zhengting’s expression became stern. “What did you say to him?”
Ding Mengya laughed. “I lost my memory, so I don’t even recognize him. What was I to do?”
As soon as she finished speaking, Si Zhengting was astounded. He could almost imagine how infuriated Uncle Liu must have been over the phone.
Ding Mengya continued, “Actually, Uncle Liu doesn’t have any bad intentions. He just wanted to set you up with someone. The reason he called me was not to berate you. He didn’t want to offend you. After all, our families are long-time friends, so we shouldn’t let this situation turn ugly. We are all businessmen. Since he gave you an out, you should play along too.”
Si Zhengting knew that Uncle Liu was not an evil person. Actually, all these years, many people have been introducing women to him, and what Uncle Liu did was considered fair.
However, the reason he flared up yesterday was because that Liu Xinshui was very rude. She had actually insulted Nainai, which caused him to vent his anger on Uncle Liu.
Uncle Liu was his elder. Their two families had frequent interactions. Furthermore, this matter could be forgotten easily.
He acknowledged her. “Uncle Liu doesn’t have any women by his side. Since he thinks that that woman is good, he can just make her stay by his side.”
Ding Mengya burst into laughter. “You are really… That lady has been trying to win your favor the whole night, yet you can’t even remember her name. Forget it. I just want to tell you that Uncle Liu has apologized to me already.”
