HH – Chapter 2


When Will We Marry?


 

Just when she thought something is going to happen, she feels something covering her body.

 

Seeing Zhuang Nai Nai, a light flashes in Si Zheng Ting’s eyes.  He grabs the quilt and wraps it around her like a dumpling.

 

Zhuang Nai Nai opens her eyes in shock and realizes that she is now no longer on top of the bed.

 

The door is opened and her entire person is flung on the hallway’s carpeted floor.  Si Zheng Ting looks at her icily as he purse his lips.  He heartlessly speaks, “Get lost.”

 

After that, he slams the door with a loud bang.

 

Zhuang Nai Nai is taken aback, remaining in a daze for a long time.  She actually got kicked out?

 

“Si Zheng Ting, do you know what ‘be gentle to the fairer sex’ means?  Y-You— You….” Zhuang Nai Nai struggles to get her hands out of the quilt wrapping her.  After she managed to do that, she sits up properly.

 

The door is suddenly opened again.

 

She looks up only to see Si Zheng Ting looking condescendingly at her like an emperor.

 

Behind his deep eyes, there are words that are left unsaid; stuck in his throat.

 

“Take it back.” He casually throws her clothes out.

 

Without even thinking, Zhuang Nai Nai gets up and rushes towards the door.

 

‘Bang.’

 

The door is slammed shut.  Lucky it didn’t hit her nose.

 

That bastard!

 

Zhuang Nai Nai wanted to smash the door out of anger, but upon remembering the position of the man inside the room, she pauses before lowering her head.

 

Si Zheng Ting is the heir of Di Hao Group, the one who dominates the entire business world.  That makes him the target of rich young ladies all around.

 

Di Hao Group is a company that controls practically every single sector out there; finance, real estate, entertainment, etc.  Basically, it is the company that represents the country; Asia’s top business group.

 

And she, Zhuang Nai Nai is only a bird that has turned into a phoenix a few days ago.  From a normal girl from a poor family, she became the Eldest Miss of Gu Enterprise who went missing 22 years ago.

 

Gu Enterprise, even in it’s glory is nothing compared to Di Hao Group.

 

If they hadn’t been betrothed when they were still on their mothers’ tummies, she wouldn’t have the chance to even approach him.

 

The distance between the two of them isn’t only separated by this one door.

 

You are my little apple, I can never love you…….

 

Her phone that is on the floor suddenly rings.  Zhuang Nai Nai’s face immediately collapse when she sees the number flashing on the screen.

 

“Qing Yan, how did it go?  Did Mr. Si tell you when he plans on marrying you?” She can hear her father, Gu De Shou’s anxious and careful voice.

 

Qing Yan….. Gu Qing Yan…..

 

Zhuang Nai Nai purse her lips.  She has returned to the Gu Family for a couple of days now and yet she still cannot get used to that name.

 

She lifts her head and look at the door in front of her, “That….. Father, things aren’t going great.”

 

“Qing Yan, the funds of our Gu Enterprise has been frozen.  We are bankrupt.  Without Mr. Si’s protection, no bank will be willing to lend us money.  I also cannot take out the 500,000 that you want.  So, no matter what, you have to make Mr. Si marry you.”

 

Zhuang Nai Nai takes a long, deep breath.  “I understand.”

 

Hanging up, she fists her hands.

 

Zhuang Nai Nai, you must not give up!

  1. Why is she listening to her father’s wishes especially she have not know this people before. Serves her right for getting thrown out of the door. The male mc should get a bodyguard to avoid all these desperate woman/families forcing their way to marry into his family because of his wealth etc.

    1. It is pretty lame that everyone wants him for his family’s money and business connections. Obviously he can take care of himself, but this would get far too annoying for me to not have someone else dealing with it Then again, she is apparently engaged to him, sort of, from birth, so his family would quite possibly encourage this sort of behavior on her part.
      She is doing this because she wants something. Gu De Shou mentioned 500,000 that she wanted – I assume RMB. Why she wants so much money we don’t yet know. She may also desire to help her newfound family, but we don’t know much about their relationship, except that it began, possibly again, two days ago.
