Chapter 1799: I’m Outside Your Door
“Brother!” Shi Xiaoya exclaimed. “What exactly are you suspecting!”
“What can I suspect? Aren’t I asking you now? Anyway, no matter who you end up with, you have to let your family members know, understand?” Shi Nancang said. “You have to hand him to us to check.”
“Yes.” Shi Xiaoya blushed as she said, “But I am really not together with Han Zhuoling.”
“Okay, okay, okay.” Shi Nancang just took her word for it.
Although he still suspected that Han Zhuoling might have some designs towards Shi Xiaoya, he was not familiar with this issue after all and could not come to a conclusion easily either.
“Aish! My younger sister has changed!” Shi Nancang groaned. “You never used to hide anything from me, but now you don’t tell me anything.”
“Brother!” Shi Xiaoya exclaimed anxiously.
“Okay, okay, okay. My younger sister is grown up. I won’t say anything more,” Shi Nancang quickly said.
“Brother, you just ended your gathering. You should go back earlier to rest,” Shi Xiaoya said.
“Wow, now you don’t want to entertain me anymore,” Shi Nancang said with a laugh.
“What, that’s not true!” Even though Shi Nancang could not see it, Shi Xiaoya still rolled her eyes at him.
“Okay, okay. I won’t talk to you any longer, you should rest earlier too,” Shi Nancang said. “Being in the production team is too tiring. Also, you be careful when you’re alone outside. Don’t let some people seize the chance, especially at night. If someone comes and presses the doorbell, please don’t open the door.”
“Brother! Who would come and press on my doorbell? Don’t think too much about it! The people in the production team are very nice, and so are the guests. They don’t put on airs, and they have good personalities too. There aren’t any of those messy and scandalous things.”
Shi Nancang thought to himself, was he talking about someone else?
He was talking about Han Zhuoling!
But thinking about it, Han Zhuoling would not resort to pressing the doorbell to a lady’s room in the middle of the night, so he did not say anything more.
When the call finally ended, Shi Xiaoya was still thinking that her elder brother was really being too worrisome.
Who would come and find her for nothing at this time?
Yet the moment she had such a thought, her room’s doorbell rang.
She was sleeping alone tonight.
To make it more convenient for filming, the production team just booked the whole hotel, so there were more than enough rooms.
Hence, this time, Shi Xiaoya also stayed in her own room.
If Shi Nancang had not said such a thing just now, it would’ve been fine, but after Shi Nancang reminded her, now that Shi Xiaoya heard someone pressing the doorbell, she instantly got nervous.
But she thought about it and went through all the people from the production team to the guests in her mind, and she felt that there was no one who would be like that.
And she had already participated in two episodes previously. The staff would not look for her at this time.
As for the guests, Cao Jingcheng and Zhang Xiangyou whom she had just gotten to know today did not seem like that kind of person either.
Shi Xiaoya decided to pretend to be asleep and to not have heard it. Alas, her phone rang again.
The screen clearly displayed Han Zhuoling’s name.
Shi Xiaoya quickly answered. “Young Master Ling?”
“I’m outside your door. Why don’t you open the door when I press on the doorbell?” Han Zhuoling’s voice rang out from the phone.
At the same time, she heard the sound of someone talking outside the door.
“So it’s you! I thought somebody else came to press the doorbell so I didn’t dare to open it,” Shi Xiaoya said.
“Why?” Han Zhuoling immediately frowned. “Did someone press on your doorbell in the previous episode?”
His voice immediately became stern and sharp.
“No, no. Don’t misunderstand,” Shi Xiaoya quickly said. “The people in the production crew are all very nice, they don’t come and press on my doorbell. It’s just that my brother called just now and reminded me again before ending the call as he was worried. Yet the moment I was done talking to him, the doorbell rang, so I felt a bit scared and wanted to pretend to be asleep and not be able to hear the doorbell.”
