Chapter 1837: How Could You Do Such a Thug-like Thing?
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Looking at how Han Zhuoling treated Shi Xiaoya now, Shi Nancang felt a little more assured.
He could not help but be assured.
He was not Han Zhuoling’s match.
If Han Zhuoling really took a liking to Shi Xiaoya, could he stop it?
Anyway, Shi Xiaoya was not someone who would obey just because he said no.
He knew very well that the two of them just came to meet him tonight, and they were giving him a lot of face by doing that.
And Han Zhuoling, this sly old fox, he probably guessed that the reason he’d asked Shi Xiaoya out for dinner tonight was not simply just to have a meal together. That was why he tagged along.
Shi Nancang did not talk about anything else and only asked Shi Xiaoya, “Xiaoya, you thought through this already?”
“Yes, I did,” Shi Xiaoya replied without any hesitation. “I like him, and I want to be with him. I like him to begin with, but I just wasn’t sure of his feelings towards me at that time, so I did not dare to say it out loud.”
Shi Xiaoya lowered her head and mumbled shyly, “I was afraid that he would treat me just like how he treated other people, chasing them away in disgust, so I did not dare to say it.”
Han Zhuoling sighed silently. He thought he’d made it quite obvious when he treated her so differently.
It was just that he’d neglected how his character looked in other people’s eyes, and that image was hard to change.
Because she cared, that’s why she did not dare to take the risk.
Wasn’t he like this as well in the beginning?
Han Zhuoling went to hold Shi Xiaoya’s hand.
This little girl, she was really so silly.
“Since you’ve thought it through, I won’t say anything more,” Shi Nancang said. “As your older brother, I only have well wishes for you. I wish that you will be happy, and that you will be treated well by someone.”
Shi Nancang laughed. “Of course, my words come a little too early. After all, the two of you just got together. You’re only in the dating phase and not about to get married. If you’re not suitable for each other, you can still break up.”
Han Zhuoling: “…”
“We won’t break up,” Han Zhuoling immediately said. “She’s so good, I won’t break up with her.”
Shi Nancang sounded as if he was looking forward to seeing them break up.
How could Han Zhuoling accept it? “Getting married is the end goal I am aiming for. After I was sure that she is the one I want to spend the rest of my life with, only then did I confess my feelings to her.”
“A relationship that does not hold marriage as the ultimate goal is just a thug-like act.” Han Zhuoling threw a glance at Shi Nancang and said very disapprovingly, “How can one do such a thug-like thing?”
Shi Nancang: “…”
What did he do? Did he behave like a thug?
Shi Xiaoya secretly tugged at Han Zhuoling to make him tone it down a little, lest he triggered Shi Nancang too much.
Han Zhuoling suddenly recalled that this was his older brother-in-law, so he could not go overboard.
Shi Nancang: “…”
You must have forgotten my current status now!
Suddenly, Shi Nancang lifted his head and puffed out his chest, giving a feeling as if he was feeling proud of himself.
Shi Xiaoya: “…”
Her brother was being a little too obviously smug.
Shi Nancang did not object to Shi Xiaoya and Han Zhuoling being together.
But Han Zhuoling was still in the observation phase in his eyes.
This meal was considered pretty harmonious.
Just that Han Zhuoling and Shi Xiaoya had formed a habit of showing their affection publicly in the production team, and they had not managed to adjust their behavior ever since. In the end, for this meal, Shi Nancang did not just have his meal, he also had a fair share of dog food1.
He felt insufferably full.
Yet Han Zhuoling and Shi Xiaoya themselves were not aware of this.
Because the two of them were not publicly displaying their affection on purpose.
In their eyes, this was how they usually interacted with each other.
Shi Nancang totally did not expect that Han Zhuoling would behave in this manner when he was in love.
Throughout the meal, Han Zhuoling took care of Shi Xiaoya all the way and was even more attentive than him, the biological older brother.
