“Yes! Yes, I’m ready!” An Xiaxia came to herself and answered in a hurry.
She had never dressed herself more quickly. An Xiaxia then pulled the door open and saw Sheng Yize waiting outside as he leaned on the wall with his arms crossed. She blushed again.
She instinctively tried to keep her distance, but Sheng Yize grabbed her wrist and pulled her into his arms.
“Your hair is still wet. Where do you think you’re going?” he scolded her mildly as he took up the hairdryer and began to carefully blow her hair dry.
An Xiaxia jabbed the tips of her index fingers together the whole time. The thought of Sheng Yize preparing underwear for her almost made her explode with shame…
As her cheeks turned redder, Sheng Yize felt her forehead. “Are you feeling alright? Why is your face so red?”
An Xiaxia stammered, but couldn’t make a coherent sentence. Sheng Yize’s brows knitted even tighter together. He picked her up with both arms. “Go get some rest now. I’m calling the doctor.”
“I, I’m fine…” An Xiaxia shook her head. “I’m really fine!”
Sheng Yize gave her a dubious look, considered for a moment, and carried her to the sofa in the living room. “You must let me know if anything doesn’t feel right.”
“Hm…” An Xiaxia played with the lower hem of her clothes, and after much hesitation, she couldn’t help but ask, “Sheng Yize… Did you… buy the clothes yourself…”
“What clothes?” Sheng Yize narrowed his eyes. Seeing the bashful look on An Xiaxia’s face, he understood the question right away. He then smiled. “Oh~ You mean the cute underwear? I bought those for you myself.”
Fine, you bought it! Did you have to put it in that matter-of-fact way?
An Xiaxia buried her face in her hands, while Sheng Yize went on with his teasing. “Is the size alright? I got you the smallest size… Hey, why are you hitting me?”
“Go away!” An Xiaxia smashed him with a cushion. “Stop talking about it already! And, I’m not the smallest size! I’m a B-cup! B!”
An Xiaxia regretted her words as soon as she said them.
Sheng Yize darted a teasing look at her chest. “Oh, I see…”
He hadn’t bought the smallest size, actually, but had gotten An Xiaxia one of those free-size bralettes…
It was just that the little woman here was dumb enough to expose herself…
B-cup… well… that was good enough for him…
An Xiaxia stared blankly, utterly speechless.
A strange awkwardness filled the room.
The silence was broken by An Xiaxia’s sneeze.
Sheng Yize wiped her nose with a tissue. An Xiaxia sniffled and wiped it again herself.
“Did you catch a cold?” Sheng Yize looked concerned.
“Hm… I have hay fever, I guess it’s coming back from walking around in the wind… Don’t worry, it’s just a runny nose…” An Xiaxia said carelessly.
Sheng Yize found it a big deal. He called the family doctor right away, and the man arrived to examine An Xiaxia before writing her a prescription. Someone else then delivered the medicine to her a while later. All this took place within an hour, completely baffling An Xiaxia.
It was so good to be rich! So amazing!
“What are you doing standing there? Come here and take your medicine.”
“Oh…” An Xiaxia inched toward him with a bitter face. By the looks of it, she was already repulsed by the medicine.
“I don’t want to take it…”
“You don’t have a choice!”
An Xiaxia’s hopes were completely shattered.
She reluctantly took the medicine, which tasted so bitter that she almost burst into tears. She was going to take the candy on the table when Sheng Yize grabbed it before she could.
He put it in his mouth and grinned wickedly at An Xiaxia. “Do you want it? Come and get it yourself.”
