TN: Zhengtai – cute and beautiful boy (around the ages of 8-14)
Flicker- con or dupe
“Come.” Ling Hanyu opens the door, taking An Chuxia’s hand in his. The room is large and empty. The only furniture in the room is a dark red table. On the table is a high-quality tea set. She hypothesizes it’s high-quality tea set is because she doesn’t understand when and how to use the various spoons….
As soon as they enter the door, she feels a sharp beam of light fall on her. Under his gaze, it seems anyone’s primal being will suddenly show. She feels a shiver travel down her spine.
She definitely has a different experience to what’s labeled as “very warm”. IS there a limit to what’s deemed as enthusiasm under the man’s gaze? Why are the wealthy strange? Naturally, she wouldn’t attempt to avoid the hard gaze the old man shoots her, so she looks straight ahead. She tries no stare at grandfather Ling since he’s Ling Hanyu’s grandfather, but how can one distinguish his age when his temples are the only ones streaked in white? He exudes the spirit of a man in his 20s.
Especially the eyes; so bright people can’t look directly. Ling Hanyu doesn’t look like his grandfather. Lao Ling’s profile is distinct, while Ling Hanyu has a Zhengtai face. Except for the nose, the two have little resemblance. The moment the old man sits on the ground, with both hands on the side, he looks at her.
Both eyes bear similarity to a fox’s shrewdness. The deep abyss in the pupils flash appreciation. The image he had of Ling Hanyu’s girlfriend is completely different. He thought Hanyu will bring back a kawaii girl, one who looks flirtatious, not one who can be beautiful and lovely at first sight.
In addition, she is born with a fresh temperament. People feel invigorated around her. Boldly looking at her, Lao Ling praises Ling Hanyu’s choice from the bottom of his heart. This girl is truly good! She is very suitable to becoming Ling Hanyu’s future wife.
It seems his concerns have been superfluous. His baby grandson’s sexual orientation is straight! He didn’t have a girlfriend because his standards are too high, and now, he’s finally found the right one!
The corners of his mouth lift. Lao Ling smiles like a fox. “Little girl, come and taste this very superior Longjing tea. This type of Longjing tea steeps in high temperature. It’s guaranteed after drinking one cup, you’d want another!”
“Grandfather, are you making a sales pitch? You talk like a salesman, convincing someone to drink what you want to drink.” Ling Hanyu takes An Chuxia’s hand and leads her to sit across from his grandfather.
She looks at Lao Ling. His eyes soften. It makes her think the feeling of being alive is an illusion. However, she profoundly knows it is!
In a blink of an eye, Lao Ling personality completely changes. She can’t be concerned about saving face. She smiles and extends her hand to properly receive the teacup grandfather Ling hands to her. However, in the Ling family, things aren’t that simple. Even if it’s just a cup… .
She is about to touch the cup when the old man suddenly changes his position. The cup is thrown upwards. Catching a glimpse of the old man’s bright eyes, An Chuxia clenches her teeth, remembering the dart-at-the-door incident. Is this a Ling custom? If it is a custom, she must be able to adapt.
Before Ling Hanyu opens his mouth, she quickly extends the other hand upwards. However, the old man simultaneously reaches out in the air to catch the cup mid-air to hand it to Chuxia.
“Grandfather! She… .&rdq
“Shut up!” they both chorus. Stunned, Ling Hanyu sees An Chuxia’s firm gaze. Her lips move, but they don’t speak. What’s she going to do next?
Her body is taut, and a suppressed red forms on her smiling face… She bends the corners of her mouth, sketching a beautiful smile on her delicate features. “Apparently, wanting to drink this cup of tea isn’t an easy matter.”
After making the last sound, An Chuxia unceremoniously stretches out her hand to seize the old man’s wrist. Who knew his hand moves so quickly, several shadows appear. Clenching her teeth, she extend her hand toward a shadow while Lao Ling’s hand stops at the same moment.
Hiss! She sucks in air. It was too late to retrieve her hand when her fingers suddenly dip into the cup. That tea is very hot. Her slender middle and ring fingers are suddenly crimson red.
“Damn!” Ling Hanyu curses loudly, holding her hand before him. After seeing the scalded skin, he pounds on the table as he stands. “Old man! She is your guest!”
The old gentleman grins from ear to ear after seeing Ling Hanyu’s reaction. This shows Ling Hanyu didn’t call her to flicker. But… he really cares about the girl. He pulls back the corners of his mouth and says, “The medicine kit is somewhere in my bedroom. Go look for it.”
First, he looks at her, then his grandfather. Ling Hanyu frowns. “I’ll go search for the medicine kit. You’re not allowed to make things difficult for her!” Leaving it at that, Hanyu hurriedly runs out of the room.
Turning around and looking at the direction Hanyu took off, An Chuxia pretends to reach back and blow against her fingers when she lightly says, “Grandfather, you deliberately sent Ling Hanyu away. What question do you want to ask me that you don’t want him to hear?”
Listening to An Chuxia, his smile gets bigger. The appreciation in his eyes are more evident. “What is your name, little girl? You are very smart.” Seeing An Chuxia being so free and easy, doesn’t require him to dig further. They’re simply two people speaking openly under the sky. His bedroom isn’t in this house, but a distance away. Moreover, the medicine kit is hidden very well. He has plenty of time to have ‘tea’ with An Chuxia.
Stretching out the unburned hand, she takes the cup of tea and holds it up against her nose. Despite the elegant smell, she doesn’t drink it. With a faint smile, she says, “This tea is quite fragrant… However, I still prefer drinking spa water.” She’s deliberately changes topics. Otherwise, this old fox would take half a day to make a point.
Grandfather Ling can no longer bear An Chuxia taking command of the moment. “You and Ling Hanyu, how did you get together? Are there any adults in your family? Who is it? Are you somewhat prepared to be an adult and marry into our family?”
