3489 Acting Pitifully
There were more than enough things in the bathroom.
It was unknown as to whether Auntie Sun had prepared these things.
There was another bathroom in the grandparents room.
Considering that this bathroom was rarely used, there shouldnt be a full range of items here.
Everything that she needed was here.
There were bath towels, toiletries, a hair dryer, and body lotion.
While Xie Jiling was taking a shower…
Han pulled Han Zhuofeng to the side and asked, “What happened Tell me the truth.”
Han Zhuofeng scratched his head.
He looked up and straightened his back as he answered confidently, “I confessed to Jiling.”
Han was shocked.
She took some time to process what Han Zhuofeng had just said.
Suddenly, she slapped Han Zhuofeng on the back and said, “Nice one, buddy!”
However, Old Mrs.
Han got so excited she couldnt control her strength.
When she smacked Han Zhuofeng on the back, Han Zhuofeng shuddered and even coughed.
“Did Jiling agree” Old Mrs.
Han asked excitedly.
If she didnt agree, she wouldnt have come back with Han Zhuofeng, right
She… said she would think about it,” Han Zhuofeng said.
Han immediately felt disappointed.
Why was her grandson so useless
“But she was worried that I wouldnt concentrate when I am on my way back here, so she wanted to send me back here and make sure that I made it back safely.”
To prevent attracting the mockery of Old Mrs.
Han on himself, Han Zhuofeng said, “Of course, this happened because I was smart enough to act pitifully.
If not, Jiling wouldnt have come back with me.”
As expected, Old Mrs.
Han stopped looking down on him, and she quickly said, “Act pitifully How did you do it Why dont you tell me”
Han Zhuofeng said proudly, “I said that if she doesnt agree to date me, I would keep thinking about it and keep wondering if she would say yes.
I would think about what I would do if she rejected me.”
“If I think about it, my heart would ache, and I wouldnt be able to focus on driving,” Han Zhuofeng said.
“Jiling is such an innocent and good little girl.” Han Zhuofeng didnt forget to praise Xie Jiling.
“She was worried and demanded to come back with me so that she would know for sure that I was safe.
Then, she would head back to school.”
“And you know the rest of the story,” Han Zhuofeng said, “I definitely cant allow her to go back by herself, right So, I brought her here.”
“She initially didnt agree; she was embarrassed about staying here.
But thankfully, I reacted quickly and dragged her back,” Han Zhuofeng said proudly.
Han nodded approvingly at the side and said, “Thats my style back then! Youre much more reliable than your two older brothers!”
Han said happily, “Nice! Good job!”
“I just hinted at Auntie Sun that she should arrange for Jiling to stay in the guest room opposite your room.” Old Mrs.
I guessed it when you said that the room doesnt have a bathroom,” Han Zhuofeng said.
Han glared at him and said, “Although I am trying to create more opportunities for you, you shouldnt do anything reckless!”
“Im just trying to give you more chances to see Jiling and interact with her.
You can open the door from time to time and pretend as if you bumped into her.
She would have to come out when shes done with her shower, right You can see her then.
If she stays in her room at all times, you wouldnt even be able to see her.
However, Im not asking you to take advantage of her at night!”
“You better behave yourself!” Old Mrs.
Han warned, “Since you brought her back here, I have to be responsible for her.
You can pursue her, but you shouldnt cross the line and take advantage of her.
“Grandma, what kind of person do you think I am Do you not trust my character If my characters bad, how can I get Jiling to trust me that I wont change in the future” Han Zhuofeng said.
But you still have to perform well.” Old Mrs.
She thought that Han Zhuofeng was very reasonable.
Han yawned and said, “Its late.
Were going to sleep.
You have to wake up early tomorrow.”
Okay.” Han Zhuofeng said obediently, “Goodnight, Grandpa.
His grandparents then went back to their room.
Han Zhuofeng went to the second floor.
He tiptoed to the bathroom at the end of the hallway and heard the water running.
He knew that Xie Jiling was not done showering.
So, he hurried back to his room and changed into his pajamas as quickly as possible.
He didnt even dare to shower.
He stayed by the door, pressed his ear against the door, and listened carefully.
After listening for a while, Han Zhuofengs neck felt sore.
However, he finally heard walking sounds outside.
When Han Zhuofeng heard the door opposite his room close, he went and took a quick shower.
Then, he went to the kitchen downstairs.
He poured two cups of milk and carried them up on a tray.
He stopped in front of Xie Jilings room and knocked on the door.
“Coming.” Xie Jilings voice sounded.
Soon, the door opened.
Xie Jiling suddenly appeared in front of Han Zhuofeng.
Han Zhuofeng froze for a moment.
Xie Jiling was wearing a normal two-piece pajama.
She had dried her hair.
Han Zhuofeng could inhale the fragrance of shampoo and shower gel on her.
Her face was flushed with color after her shower, and she looked refreshed and revitalized.
“Are you going to sleep” Han Zhuofeng asked.
Xie Jiling nodded and asked, “Dont you have to wake up early tomorrow Why are you still awake”
“Im about to sleep.
Do you want a cup of milk It will help you sleep better,” Han Zhuofeng said, “Youre about to sleep in an unfamiliar place, so I thought you might not be used to sleeping here.
You will feel more comfortable with a cup of milk.”
Xie Jiling wanted to say that she often stayed in hostels when she had to travel for work.
She was used to staying in an unfamiliar place.
However, when Xie Jiling was in front of Han Zhuofeng, she couldnt say it.
She took the cup of milk and said, “Alright.
“Sleep early,” Han Zhuofeng said.
He was just about to leave when he turned back and asked, “What time is your earliest class”
“At 10 am tomorrow.
I will leave for school at 9 am, so I will wake up at 8 am,” Xie Jiling said.
No worries, then.
Im waking up at 4 am, so we wont see each other,” Han Zhuofeng said.
“Yes.” Xie Jiling nodded.
She didnt know what to say.
“By the way, my room is opposite yours.” Han Zhuofeng pointed at the room behind him.
“You can call me if you need anything.”
“Alright.” Xie Jiling nodded.
But in her opinion, there was no reason for her to look for him tonight.
Then… goodnight.” Han Zhuofeng said.
“Dont forget what you promised me tonight.
Think carefully about it,” Han Zhuofeng said.
“Alright.” Xie Jiling nodded.
“Are you waking up at 8am tomorrow Then I will ask you tomorrow morning at 8 am.” Han Zhuofeng said.
“…” Xie Jiling felt the corner of her mouth twitch.
“Arent you going to the filming location early tomorrow to shoot more scenes”
“I will still have the time to ask you about it,” Han Zhuofeng said.
When Xie Jiling saw that he had already added the time to ask her for an update on his schedule, she couldnt help but wonder if she should really agree to date him.
