Chapter 119: The Chaos Rises Again (4)
“Luo Anning, are your brains fried? Isn’t it obvious enough that I’m showing you my concern and that it’s not just a misunderstanding!?!”
Greatly stunned, Luo Anning said, “Rong Yan, are you kidding me? It’s not funny at all.”
Rong Yan glowered at her and retorted, “Do I look like I’m kidding?”
This damned woman. I finally decided to show her some concern and yet, she ruined it just like that. I wish I could just strangle her!
“Please be civilized… Young Master Rong, we’re all civilized people. Don’t be so uncouth… ” Luo Anning almost began coughing and choking on her spit.
“I just like being uncouth. What’s wrong? Who would dare to criticize me!?!” Rong Yan barked confidently, feeling proud and smug.
Luo Anning was speechless.
However, he was the boss and he called the shots.
Seeing that she had become obedient, Rong Yan’s anger vanished. He hugged her while her stomach rumbled because of how hungry she was. She called, “Auntie Li, is dinner ready? I’m hungry… ”
“Young Madam, we won’t be cooking tonight. If you’re hungry, have some cake to fill you up a little,” Auntie Li said while handing her a slice of cheesecake.
“Why not? What do I eat at night then?” Luo Anning wriggled out of Rong Yan’s arms and grabbed the slice of cake which she then wolfed down hungrily.
Auntie Li grinned while Rong Yan said the things that she wanted to. “We’re going back to Grandpa’s place for dinner tonight. Grandpa and Mother haven’t seen you in almost a month. They think I euthanized you in England.”
As soon as Luo Anning heard the word ‘England’, her body stiffened. Suddenly reminded of something, Rong Yan cussed under his breath and said softly, “You can rest assured that if Laurent dares to treat you like that again, I won’t let her off. I’ll make her pay for all the harm that she had inflicted on you, alright?”
How dare she touch my family member. She is asking for death!
For the first time, Luo Anning felt that Rong Yan was actually rather nice. Regardless of how sincere he really may be, his defensiveness over her was enough to make her feel touched.
After finishing the cake, she turned around and took the initiative to hug Rong Yan for the first time. She rested her head against his chest and said softly, “Thank you, Young Master Rong. However, I’d like to handle the matters regarding Laurent, by myself. I must make her pay for what she owes me.”
“Okay, then you can do what you want. You may feel free to use my subordinates. Tell Xu Zhiyuan what you need, and let him do it for you. If it’s really too taxing, let me handle it, alright?” Rong Yan asked with raised brows while enjoying her voluntary affection.
“… Alright.” Luo Anning smiled, feeling touched by him for once.
At night, the two of them returned to Old Mr. Rong’s mansion where Uncle Zhang enthusiastically ushered them into the living room.
Old Mr. Rong and Jiang Peihua looked at the two of them who entered hand in hand, all smiles. Old Mr. Rong was especially happy and he felt that he had made the right decision to let them go to England for a business trip.
Jiang Peihua waved and beckoned, “Anning, come here, why have you lost so much weight in a month? Tell Mother, is this stupid rascal bullying you again?”
In all fairness, Jiang Peihua was actually very nice to Luo Anning. She smiled embarrassedly and let go of Rong Yan’s hand before walking towards Jiang Peihua. “Mother, you read too much into things, Rong Yan didn’t bully me. I’m just trying to lose weight.”
Thrilled to hear that she was defending Rong Yan, Old Mr. Rong’s glassy eyes glistened. On the other hand, Rong Yan wondered, is Grandpa up to something again?
