My Wife Is A Beautiful CEO - Chapter 11
Since he already agreed to be a guest at Old man Lee's house, Yang Chen naturally wouldn't forget to come. Staying true to his words is part of being a gentleman. Yang Chen uses this excuse to highlight the greatness in his personality.
As he is broke and unwilling to stay any longer near that cold and crazy yet beautiful Lin Ruoxi, Yang Chen chooses to return home on foot. Since the distance isn't long, added with Yang Chen's physique which is way beyond ordinary people's imagination, he can just quickly sprint home without much effort.
It is already evening when he arrives home. After taking a shower, Yang Chen once again opens his wooden chest, scans it and takes a pale blue white-striped shirt and a pair of classic white shorts. After buttoning some of his buttons in the wrong places, Yang Chen takes a look at his reflection in the cracked mirror on the wall. Generally speaking he is somewhat handsome.
Yang Chen deeply inhales the faint jasmine fragrance of Lin Ruoxi that is still permeating the room while he thinks about how funny it is that tomorrow he has to marry a woman whom he has not known for more than a day. However, once he thought of how Lin Ruoxi's resolute eyes made his frozen heart turn scorching hot, Yang Chen feels he is having feelings for this beautiful girl.
Is he trying to compensate for her? Or is she truly different from others? Yang Chen does not know answer to these question, thus he decides to marry her and let time give him the answer as to what kind of feelings he has for her.
Old man Lee's house is not that far, but without any transport, Yang Chen has to walk for half an hour before arriving in the area. This is an old residential area in the West region, surrounded by civilians who are too poor to rent an apartment. Generations who live here have protected the archaic southern flavours of the area.
After passing by several small houses, he can already see smoke from the kitchen coming out of the chimney. Yang Chen then knocks on a very old red wooden door.
Very soon after knocking, the wooden door opens. Behind the door is a cheery young face, ’’Big Brother Yang! You're here!’’
’’Jingjing, long time no see.’’ Yang Chen smiles. The girl in front of him has changed a lot in half a year, somewhat surprising him.
Li Jingjing's face is still elegant and refined like usual, with curly eyelashes, a delicate little nose and a petite mouth, typical of the classic southern girl. She wears a white short sleeved T-shirt, and tight fitting blue jean shorts, revealing a pair of beautiful white legs.
Seeing Yang Chen's eyes sweep up and down with a naughty smile, Li Jingjing feels embarrassed, yet at the same time she secretly feels delighted. She coquettishly says: ’’Big brother Yang, stop staring and come in.’’
Yang Chen laughs and says: ’’Jingjing knows how to feel embarrassed now huh? You won't lose anything if it is just me, you know? Or are you afraid of your boyfriend getting jealous?’’
’’What do you mean! I don't have a boyfriend.’’ Li Jingjing immediately denies it while furrowing her brows and looking a little angry.
’’Okay Okay Okay..... I'm just kidding.....’’ Yang Chen is a little helpless since he obviously can not tell what this girl is thinking, but how could he tarnish such a pure soul? Thus, he always keeps his distance and reminds her that he is her brother/friend and is not be the man she is thinking of.
Inside Old Li's living room, Old Li happily welcomes him, ’’Little Yang, my child Jingjing was helping her mother cook earlier, but the moment she heard you knock on the door she rushed out like a rabbit.’’
’’Dad! Stop speaking nonsense!’’ Li Jingjing acts bashfully while clinging onto Old Li and not letting him say anything more.
Yang Chen laughs and sits with Old Li. All of the furniture in the house are decades old, with their somewhat withered red paint, yet it also expresses a classic preference.
Under the dim light, the summer flies flies about in the house, a breeze blows through the corridor, everything appears to be very peaceful.
Drinking the tea that Li Jingjing has brought out for him, Yang Chen suddenly feels a sense of fulfilment that he never experienced before. As he looks out at the night sky, the moon is somehow a little more dazzling.
’’Young man, stop displaying such a disillusioned look, a great future awaits you.’’ Old Li gently jokes while drinking his cup of green tea.
Yang Chen returns to his senses, smiles and says, ’’You old man, all ladies prefer profound men. Am I doing a good job pretending to look deep?’’
’’Hehe’’, Old Li laughs: ’’Little Yang, others might not notice, but I have spent half of this year interacting with you, so I am very clear of your character. You are not pretending, you little brat. If it wasn't because of some event in your past, why would you want to sell mutton skewers for no reason?’’
Yang Chen is unable to say anything else, as a man like Old Li, who has experienced hardship, naturally would be able to tell that he is hiding something deep inside. Nonetheless, what Old Li is imagining of is very far from the truth.
Some people are destined to be lonely, because nobody can associate with them.
Dinner is very luxurious. Old Li's family specially butchered one of their old hens, and makes an exquisite chicken soup. Fish and crab are also brought out, thus to Old Li's family's financial conditions, this meal is even more luxurious than new year's.
’’Little Yang, you should eat more, although it is a little simple, it is still our family's token of gratitude.’’ Aunt Li's wrinkled yet happy face affectionately looks at Yang Chen as if she is looking at her own son.
Yang Chen does not say much during the meal as he continuously gulps down another mouthful of meat. He knows very well that this is the only way to make the couple happy.
Li Jingjing from time to time also gives Yang Chen more food. She would even secretly peek at Yang Chen eating while her parents are not paying attention. When she hears that Yang Chen says the dishes taste good, she feels as if her heart is being filled with sweet honey, since most of the dishes were made by her.
In the beginning Yang Chen does not plan to drink alcohol, but he was unable to hold back since he hasn't smoked, and also because of the matter of the fake marriage. Yang Chen is also too lazy to reason with himself more and drank a few cups of soju with Old Li. The burning feeling in his stomach was very comfortable.
’’Little Yang ah, if it wasn't for the money you lent us in this half a year, our family would be facing much worse hardship. Now that our Jingjing has found a job, next time you can come be our guest more often, I would also cook some good food for you.’’ Aunt Li happily says.
Yang Chen's face was already flushed red, yet he is still somewhat sober. He happily asks: ’’Oh, Jingjing has found a job? What job?’’
’’I've been accepted by Zhonghai's Yizhong High School to be an English teacher there. Due to the former teacher being pregnant, I'm now a temporary formal teacher.’’ Li Jingjing quietly smiles.
’’A teacher.... and also an English teacher, our Jingjing really isn't simple huh.’’ Yang Chen nods satisfyingly, ’’The wages are also not low, when the time comes please don't forget your big brother Yang!’’
The Old Li couple also proudly laughs. Their late born daughter has a great future at last. This news naturally makes them extremely happy.
Li Jingjing pouts and says bashfully, ’’Then when you are free, brother Yang must come to the school and find me, otherwise how would I remember big brother Yang?’’
’’Alright, I'll definitely go, YiZhong is a well known high school, I've never been there before....’’ Yang Chen happily replies.
After the meal, Old Li affectionately pulls Yang Chen to drink tea and play Chinese chess with him. Honestly speaking, Old Li is a chess playing grandpa who is playing against Yang Chen, who has absolutely no idea how to play. In the meantime, Li Jingjing helps her mother clean up the table.
After losing the game of chess, Yang Chen feels that the soup, alcohol and tea didn't mix very well in his stomach, so he tells Old Li to wait, and runs towards the toilet to release his floodgates first.
Old Li's house toilet is at the back of the house in a separate shack. After walking through the small alleyway, the muddle-headed Yang Chen unsteadily pushes the wooden door of the toilet open......
A sharp and panicking sound enters Yang Chen's ears. Immediately raising his head, Yang Chen is dumbfounded.
In front of his eyes is Li Jingjing who seems to be finishing showering, and at this moment this little beauty has nothing covering her body. Although the 40 watt light bulb is not very bright, it is enough to let Yang Chen clearly see the waistline full of youth and vitality. A tiny black patch was hanging on the waist, the pepper-like hot breasts of Li Jingjing was hurriedly covered with her hand, yet was difficult to cover it due to its plumpness like round cakes. Slightly below the breasts is a smooth waistline without excess flesh. Li Jingjing's other hand covers the thick rainforest below, with a pair of round thighs tightly clamps over that erogenous zone.
Li Jingjing does not know that her actions are greatly increasing her allure.
Yang Chen, who originally is feeling dizzy from the alcohol, feels boosted by the hormones from seeing Li Jingjing's unripe yet enticing body. He could not help but swallow his saliva as a part of him which is holding violent desires begins to rise.
