At night, Hao Yan Che opened the new master bedroom door. His rice ball was lying on the bed. She had kicked the bedsheet below her feet, and looked like she was in a good mood.
Yuan Gun Gun heard the door open, she sat up on the bed and anticipated Hao Yan Che coming to bed. But he ignored her and walked to the bathroom.
Yuan Gun Gun got out of bed, and went to stand in front of the closed bathroom door. She didn’t know what she wanted to say.
Hao Yan Che sensed Yuan Gun Gun was standing behind the bathroom door, he opened it and looked coldly at her.
‘Do you want to be a peeping tom?’ Hao Yan Che asked.
Yuan Gun Gun shook her head. She was disappointed Hao Yan Che looked at her coldly. Her shoulders slumped, she turned around and walked back to the bed.
‘Go ask someone to boil eggs,’ Hao Yan Che said and closed the bathroom door.
Yuan Gun Gun walked back to the bathroom door.
‘Do you want to eat boiled eggs or fried eggs?’ Yuan Gun Gun asked. ‘How many eggs do you want to eat?’
Hao Yan Che opened the bathroom door again.
‘Boil eggs!’ Hao Yan Che said.
Yuan Gun Gun was startled, and she ran outside to find someone to boil eggs. After she left, he slammed the bathroom door closed.
When Yuan Gun Gun returned to the master bedroom, Hao Yan Che was drying his hair with a towel on the bed.
‘Come here,’ Hao Yan Che said.
Yuan Gun Gun held a bowl of boiled eggs and walked to the bed. Hao Yan Che pulled her onto the bed, he put the bowl of boiled eggs on the bedside table and rolled a boiled egg on her swollen cheek.
Yuan Gun Gun looked at Hao Yan Che’s beautiful face, and thought about Mrs Chen’s words. Did the beautiful man in front of her truly liked her? Was she someone special to him? She smiled like a fool at him.
‘What are you smiling about?’ Hao Yan Che asked.
‘Young master, am I someone special to you?’ Yuan Gun Gun asked.
‘You’re the most special person in the world,’ Hao Yan Che said.
‘Really?’ Yuan Gun Gun asked.
‘Yes,’ Hao Yan Che said. ‘You’re a special dummy. Other dummies can’t compare to your low intelligence.’
Yuan Gun Gun became a deflated balloon. Hao Yan Che rolled the egg on her cheek until it turned cold. Then he put another egg in her hands.
‘Your reward,’ Hao Yan Che said.
Yuan Gun Gun absentmindedly put the egg in her mouth. Hao Yan Che reached for the soothing cream, and applied it on her face.
Yuan Gun Gun bit half the egg, and gave the other half to Hao Yan Che.
‘Tastes bad,’ Yuan Gun Gun said.
Hao Yan Che looked at her like he was asking her if he looked like a rubbish bin. She quickly put the other half of the egg in her mouth.
Hao Yan Che put the cream away and went to the bathroom to wash his hands. Yuan Gun Gun took out the egg in her mouth, put it in the bin and used a tissue to hide the egg.
Hao Yan Che returned to the bed, turned off the light and laid next to Yuan Gun Gun.
Seconds later, Yuan Gun Gun poked Hao Yan Che’s waist.
‘Young master, why aren’t you hugging me?’ Yuan Gun Gun asked.
Hao Yan Che ignored Yuan Gun Gun.
‘Hug me,’ Yuan Gun Gun said.
‘No,’ Hao Yan Che said.
‘Are you going to hug me or not?’ Yuan Gun Gun asked.
‘No,’ Hao Yan Che said.
‘Then I’ll hug you,’ Yuan Gun Gun said and hugged Hao Yan Che.
Yuan Gun Gun couldn’t see Hao Yan Che smile in the dark.
‘Don’t you want to take revenge for him?’ Hao Yan Che asked.
‘Aunty Chen explained your body doesn’t let other people touch you,’ Yuan Gun Gun said. ‘Now I know you didn’t mean to hit big brother Du.’
Hao Yan Che scoffed.
‘Young master, I’m special to you because I can touch you,’ Yuan Gun Gun said proudly.
‘Do you know who else can touch me besides you?’ Hao Yan Che asked.
‘No,’ Yuan Gun Gun said.
‘Animals,’ Hao Yan Che said. ‘Do you know what this implies?’
‘What?’ Yuan Gun Gun asked.
‘You’re no different from an animal,’ Hao Yan Che said.
