With this thought in mind, Lin Jiage cleared his throat and walked up to Shi Yao, “Do you have some time after this?”
Shi Yao glanced to her left, then to her right.
There was no one next to her. Could Lin Jiage possibly be talking to her?
But he didn’t call her name… What if he was actually talking to the driver?
Too dumb! I’m talking to you, where are you looking at?
After shouting inwardly, Lin Jiage asked once more, “Are you free later, Shi Yao?”
Shi Yao was still in the middle of looking around when she heard own name. Only then did she became certain that Lin Jiage was talking to her, and she hurriedly replied, “I think so.”
As soon she blurted the words instinctively out of her mouth, she immediately wondered if she was being too honest.
So, after a moment of thought, she added, “Is there something up?”
Lin Jiage cleared his throat, and with a hint of awkwardness in his voice, he said, “There is something… that I’d like your help for…”
Ha?! He wants my help? There are actually times when he needs help from other people?
Shi Yao instinctively shot a glance at the sky. Nope, the sun didn’t rise from the west… Am I hearing things then?
While Shi Yao was mumbling silently in her heart, she didn’t forget to reply in a soft voice, “What do you need my help for?”
Has Soft Bun’s voice always been this gentle and adorable?
Her voice managed to soothe Lin Jiage’s heart, such that even his voice had softened, “My sis just took up a new project a while ago, and I want to send her a present. But, I’m not so sure what girls like, so I wanted to ask your opinion.”
Ah, so he wants to buy a present for Sis Jiayi… But he could’ve asked another girl to help him, right? Why did he have to ask me?
While Shi Yao pondered over his actions, Lin Jiage noted her silence and assumed that she was reluctant. Thus, he added, “What’s wrong? Is it too much trouble?”
Lin Jiage then paused for a brief moment before continuing, “The reason why I’m asking you is because my sis likes you a lot, and she treats you quite well. She usually brings back gifts for you from overseas. So, I thought that you’d have a better idea of her preferences.”
Lin Jiage’s words seemed casual, but every single one of them served to heap pressure on Shi Yao.
Shi Yao didn’t really know much about Lin Jiayi’s preferences, but it was true that the latter would often bring back gifts for her from overseas.
Well… Even if Lin Jiage didn’t ask, I should still help pick out a present for Lin Jiayi.
Thus, after hearing Lin Jiage’s words, she quickly shook her head and explained, “Ah, it’s no trouble at all. I’m just wondering what kind of gift Sis Jiayi would prefer.”
“There’s no need to rush. You can think about it later when we reach the shopping mall.” Seeing that Shi Yao had agreed to it, Lin Jiage turned to the driver and said, “Pass the keys to me.”
“Yes, Young Master.” The driver walked up to Lin Jiage and gave him the car keys. At the same time, he leaned closer and whispered in a voice audible only to the two of them, “Young Master, I have already prepared the things that you wanted. They’re in the car trunk.”
Lin Jiage nodded impassively to the driver’s words before directing a “Get on the car” to Shi Yao. He then circled around the car and got on the driver’s seat himself.
While Lin Jiage was putting on his seatbelt, he realized that Shi Yao was sitting at the back instead, and he froze.
He slowly turned his head around to Shi Yao and asked, “Do I look like your driver?”
Confused by Lin Jiage’s question, Shi Yao shook her head obediently and replied, “No?”
Lin Jiage tilted his chin up and gestured at her position as he said, “Then, what do you mean by getting on the backseat?”
