Chapter 201: A game to decide the winner and loser
The atmosphere of the gathering was very lively contrary to Shi Jinyang who was just holding his wine glass and quietly imbibing on his own.
The spot where Luo Yibei chose wasn’t that far away from him. After sitting down, he was left alone with not even a woman around unlike other people.
With natural cold and indifferent aura he presented, there he sat, distant but domineering, high and mighty, mimicing an inviolable God.
The two people’s eyes met through the dim light which reminded Luo Yibei of Fang Chixia. Thinking about it, he mentioned, “Our topic last time, we haven’t finished discussing.”
Both people have known each other for so many years, what he was referring to, Shi Jinyang need not deliberate on it.
The hand holding the cup stiffened a little, and a trace of sorrow flashed across his half-closed eyes.
“What do you want to discuss?”
“How about we play a game? To determine the winner and loser?” Luo Yibei grabbed a glass of wine from a nearby waiter and proposed.
“Okay.” Shi Jinyang downed the glass of wine in one go and tossed the empty glass on the table next to him. His slender legs were curled upwards to continued to appreciate the dim light of the holiday resort.
Many of the people in attendance at the party are mutual friends and some were called out by Shi Luo, to be exact, they are all renowned sons and daughters of influential families in C city.
Nonetheless, in the Luo Yibei’s presence, they paled in comparison. Especially when he arrived, they circled around the man giving a shot in and endeavor to make friends with him.
Luo Yibei just sat at his corner from beginning to end. His eyes might be on the stream of people at the party but he wasn’t really paying attention to them. He also just carried a glass of wine in one hand and took a sip from time to time.
After taking several sips, somehow, his mind conjured Fang Chixia’s face.
What would she be doing alone at this time?
Now that he thought about it, he took out his phone and called someone.
In the villa after he left, Fang Chixia gave Tuantuan a bath, sewn him clothes and constructed him a very warm nest.
The nest was European in style, the surface was made up of a bed, some pillows and even a quilt.
Tuantuan seemed to love it very much. When she was building it, it handed her some things several times with her claws, seemingly like a little helper.
After the bed was laid, the rotund kitty rolled over and jumped over, its four limbs hugging a pillow and swaying back and forth above.
Fang Chixia inspected her achievements for a while and feeling bored enough, she went to the kitchen. She was preparing some ingredients for what she was to cook when outside the door, a small figure suddenly marched towards her.
Fang Chixia was caught totally unprepared and frantically blinked her eyes in disbelief.
Xiao Zuo who was standing up in the courtyard, when he saw her inside, trotted and sprinted towards her.
“Little guy, what are you doing here?” Fang Chixia was somewhat surprised by his appearance.
“Hey, you are here too!” Xiao Zuo evaded her question. He too was surprised at first but then his demeanor returned and took on another expression, “I knew it, Yibei brother must have pitied you so he picked you up from the roadside to give you shelter, right?”
He sounded sure of it which turned the expression on Fang Chixia’s face slightly stiff.
What did he mean picked her up by the side of the road?
However, since that’s how he understood it, she made no move to clarify.
It’s better to have this child misunderstand rather discover that they are married.
Moreover, under the circumstances when she married Luo Yibei, saying that he provided her shelter wasn’t an exaggeration.
How much of her situation was different from a stray kitten or puppy?
Xiao Zuo circled around her, sizing her up and down, then emitted another realization——
Chapter 202: Xiao Zuo’s 36 stratagems.
“Do you know how many women wanted to live with elder brother Yibei like you do now? Your current predicament is something countless women have long coveted.
Before, weren’t you all torn up about how to attract Yibei brother’s attention? Now that you’re already in, you should seize the opportunity, en?”
When Xiao Zuo was doing his usual preaching, she couldn’t fathom where could he have heard such words.
Fang Chixia was absolutely flabbergasted. When was she ever torn up about attracting Luo Yibei’s attention?
She was truly festive whenever Luo Yibei ignores her.
How would Xiao Zuo know that much?
He only knows that in Luo Yibei’s world, women have always taken the initiative to send themselves into his arms, so he was deeply convinced that Fang Chixia, like any other woman, was also trying her best to gain Luo Yibei’s favor.
Staring at her all dressed up, he pronounced contemptuously, “You can’t do this. If you want to catch a man’s heart, you must catch that man’s eyes, don’t you know?”
The seven-year-old little guy thinks more mature that an adult. Whatever comes out of his mouth was usually the case.
It’s just that, why should she catch Luo Yibei’s attention?
Fang Chixia was still puzzling over that statement when Xiao Zuo left her out and then run to a corner to call, “Hello, Grandpa, I need a few servants here. Can you send a few women to Yibei brother’s villa?”
He spoke audaciously, taking on the image of an overbearing little president, resembling a businessman who’s conducting a deal in the market but at the same time carrying a commanding air.
This side of Xiao Zuo, to use her own typical description of the Luo Family, has more autocratic presence!
“What would the servants you asked to come over for?” Fang Chixia waited until he ended his call and asked very seriously.
“Guess?” The indifference on Xiao Zuo’s face moments ago disappeared in an instant replaced by a grinning little face.
“Forget it.” Not sparing any effort to guess what he was cooking in that humonguous brain of his, Fang Chixia waved her hand incuriously before taking Tuantuan into her arms.
Xiao Zuo followed behind her and sat next to her.
“Stupid woman, are you very poor?” His little hands stretched and went onto her shoulders and asked very earnestly.
Fang Chixia didn’t expect him to ask that out of the blue.
“Hasn’t my elder brother already provided you home?” Xiao Zuo asked again and then swept a glance at her home clothes, “Have you seen what you are wearing?”
Since marrying Luo Yibei, there were actually a lot of limited editions that he specially prepared for her. But usually at home, when she’s feeling comfortable, she likes to dress casual.
The dress she is wearing might have been from school, but generally, it is very comfortable.
Regarding clothes, Fang Chixia’s sense of luxury could be termed zero. For her, comfort is more important.
On the other hand, for Xiao Zuo who has grown up in a family like the Luo’s, cheap ones are bought by people without money.
Fang Chixia was frowned upon by a seven-year-old child!
“I’m sending you a lot of clothes, is it good?” After a moment of thinking, Xiao Zuo leaned on her and imparted sincerely.
The seven-year-old child doesn’t know how to be good for one person, but that’s what he wanted to say.
Fang Chixia is still a student without that much money, but not to the extent where a child has to buy her clothes!
“Go back and read your book!” Seeing red at the moment, Fang Chixia as mightily speechless.
Xiao Zuo pouted but still flanked her on the side to play with her.
