Chapter 1611: Why Did She Look So Flustered
When they first entered the house earlier on, she’d gone to her bedroom to change out of her clothes while Han Zhuoling had stayed in the living room.
He was dressed in suit and leather, which looked especially formal, so it had indeed not been very convenient.
So he’d taken off his coat, blazer, and tie, and also unfastened a few buttons of his shirt. He’d also rolled up his sleeves.
He had already left now, yet his tie was once again left behind on her sofa, lying there quietly.
This scene looked especially familiar. It looked exactly the same as that from yesterday night!
Shi Xiaoya did not know whether to cry or laugh as she picked up Han Zhuoling’s tie. She quickly went to the balcony to look, in case Han Zhuoling had not left and she could call him back in time.
Just as she was about to walk to the balcony, the doorbell at the entrance to her house rang.
Shi Xiaoya thought it was Han Zhuoling, who’d realized that he had left his tie behind and had come back to take it.
She did not even realize that Han Zhuoling did not have her house key card, so how would he be able to come back?
Anyway, when she discovered that Han Zhuoling left another tie behind at her house, and discovered that her house had a total of two of Han Zhuoling’s ties now, her mind was in a whirl and probably could not think properly anymore.
Shi Xiaoya quickly took the tie to the entrance as she said, “Young—”
Before she could finish speaking, she saw her elder brother Shi Nancang come in.
He stood at the door and asked Shi Xiaoya in confusion, “Did you say ‘Young’ something just now?”
“No, it’s nothing, I said ‘you.’ You heard wrongly.” In front of her elder brother, Shi Xiaoya’s IQ went up once again.
“Really?” Shi Nancang indeed did not hear clearly just then, so he did not dwell on this matter now.
“Big Brother, wait for me a while.” Shi Xiaoya quickly turned and ran into her bedroom. She did not have time to find a place to put it properly, so she just stuffed Han Zhuoling’s tie under her blanket for the time being and ran back out.
She happened to see Shi Nancang about to open the shoe cabinet. He saw her return and momentarily paused in his act. “Why do you look so flustered? With how you were like just now, is it that someone came over to your house before this?”
“Aren’t I going to Man City tomorrow? I just settled my work matters for afterward with Yujie; she just left,” Shi Xiaoya explained sheepishly.
Shi Nancang just replied “Oh” and did not suspect anything. He was now about to reach for the home slippers to change into.
Shi Xiaoya suddenly recalled that Han Zhuoling’s newly bought slippers were also placed here. Given how much of a clean freak Han Zhuoling was, he definitely would not be willing to let other people wear his slippers.
And if she let Shi Nancang see so many men’s slippers suddenly appear in her house, he might misunderstand.
“Wait!” Shi Xiaoya stopped him again.
Shi Nancang stared strangely at Shi Xiaoya. “What’s wrong?”
“I’ll help you to take them out. Aren’t you also carrying stuff in your hands? How inconvenient, isn’t it?” As long as it was not in front of Han Zhuoling, Shi Xiaoya’s reaction was really quite fast.
Shi Nancang nodded and laughed. “I forgot.”
He then put the bags in his hands down on the floor.
Shi Xiaoya quickly seized the chance and took out Qin Zigou’s slippers. Afraid that Shi Nancang would see the other pairs of men’s slippers inside, Shi Xiaoya flipped the cabinet doors open and closed it in a flash.
She placed the slippers by Shi Nancang’s feet and said, “Big Brother, here, the slippers.”
Shi Nancang changed out of his shoes and asked, “Why are you so jumpy tonight? Why are you being so strange?”
“Nothing. I’m very normal, how am I being strange?” Shi Xiaoya said, acting dumb.
After covering things up, she also calmed down.
“Big Brother, why did you come at this time?” Shi Xiaoya changed the topic.
“I came to send you some stuff. Aren’t you going to Man City tomorrow? It’s your first time going there. That place is really cold, so I was afraid that you may not have prepared enough things,” Shi Nancang said. “There are quite a lot of employees from the company’s sales department going out on business trips. Someone went to Man City before, so I especially asked them about it and about what things are a must to prepare. I bought them after I got off work and came over to give them to you.”
