Adopting and Raising the Male Lead and the Villain - Chapter 265
“It’s not the same…” Han Yingying bit her lip. “We’ve all seen the news and photos of you and Li Jinyuan eating together. Those photos – don’t you feel like… there’s something weird with them…”
She did feel that, Zhong Yuhuan thought secretly in her heart.
But she didn’t want to tell others that. If she was mistaken, wouldn’t she have ruined Li Jinyuan’s image?
Zhong Yuhuan could only shake her head and say, “There’s nothing weird.”
Han Yingying finally couldn’t endure it any longer and she burst out in a single breath, “Don’t you feel like they’re too possessive of you? First, you and Wen Yongchen have a scandal, then you and Li Jinyuan are photographed while eating… Just be more aware. Even if you are family, doing this is too over-the-top. If Wen Yongchen doesn’t work… there are still others. Ones in the entertainment industry, modeling industry, even artists, top students, rich second-generations… There are too many you can pick from. If you really want to date, I’ll introduce you to some good ones…”
Zhong Yuhuan really became interested when she heard that, throwing their previous conversation about Huo Chengming and Li Jinyuan to the back of her head.
Whether for her own needs or to break the current strange behaviors, Zhong Yuhuan felt that dating was the next step she needed to take in her life.
“Okay.” Zhong Yuhuan agreed, asking with interest, “Is there someone studying law?”
“There’s even ones studying medicine. White coats, long legs, abstinent yet handsome. Which do you like?” Han Yingying said happily.
“They can’t be below 1.8 meters.”
“There are ones over 1.9 meters if you want.”
Huo Chengming had just returned to his senses, barely suppressing his restless mood.
And heard Zhong Yuhuan say, ‘They can’t be below 1.8 meters.’
Huo Chengming frowned, snatching Zhong Yuhuan’s phone away.
Han Yingying was at the height of her excitement when she suddenly heard someone else from her phone. She was shocked, her voice immediately becoming serious. “Mr. Huo.”
“What’s the 1.8 meters you were talking about with Huanhuan?” Huo Chengming straightforwardly asked.
He wouldn’t ask Zhong Yuhuan, in case it made her unhappy, so he asked Han Yingying, who was afraid of him.
Han Yingying was indeed afraid of him, immediately responding, “I was telling Huanhuan about a recent rich second-generation who’s chasing me.”
“Yes, yes.” Han Yingying repeated, then used the tactic of transferring damage. “I’ve gotta go. I need to look at the news. Li Jinyuan seems to have some more news coming out…”
Then, Han Yingying hung up.
Huo Chengming handed the phone back to Zhong Yuhuan, asking in a low voice, “Han Yingying has had many boyfriends in the past few years, right?”
Huo Chengming suppressed the inexplicable restlessness in his heart. “Don’t learn from her, Huanhuan.”
Zhong Yuhuan nodded.
Either way, she didn’t have anyone she’s interested in. Even if there were people she’s interested in, she would still observe them for a bit. Of course, she wouldn’t date just because she wanted to, or switch boyfriends on a whim.
Huo Chengming’s expression finally became a bit better.
But with this interruption, he struggled even more to think of a way to get closer with Zhong Yuhuan and let the paparazzi take photographs.
Zhong Yuhuan took a bite of a gristle pot sticker, only biting off half before frowning. “I can’t chew it.”
Huo Chengming naturally took her chopsticks and ate the remaining half. “Give it to me.”
Zhong Yuhuan froze.
Before, Li Jinyuan and Huo Chengming would occasionally finish her food.
She was still a bit spoiled, eating whatever she wanted without any scruples. They were diligent and frugal, not wasting anything, so they would eat the things that she didn’t finish. Before, she didn’t feel like it was wrong. After all, parents would also finish their child’s leftovers. But now… Zhong Yuhuan suddenly felt like she was being electrocuted, a sudden shock from the top of her head to the soles of her feet.
She subconsciously licked her chopsticks, dryly saying, “Next time don’t do this.”
“Do what?” Huo Chengming asked, moving to ladle more soup for Zhong Yuhuan.
Zhong Yuhuan rarely blushed, but she blushed now, and whispered, “Don’t finish my food for me.”
Huo Chengming paused at that moment, his chest filling with unhappiness and jealousy.
“Wasn’t it like this before? How is it wrong?”
She could eat with Li Jinyuan, and Li Jinyuan could straighten her hair, but he couldn’t eat her leftovers?
“… It’s not good.” Zhong Yuhuan’s voice was even quieter.
She also didn’t know why.
But she clearly didn’t do anything wrong.
Her reminding him is correct! Ignoring it would be wrong!
