My Little Happiness 我的小确幸 Chapter 4.2



Chapter 4.2 - The Heavenly Cycle (2)

Cong Rong moved quickly, and when Zhong Zhen came back at night, he saw that she had brought her luggage to his house as if she was staying permanently. He just moved into the apartment himself and didn't have time to clean his house. Now, his house is already thoroughly cleaned, but his sheets have been moved from the bedroom to the study.

Zhong Zhen looked at Cong Rong who was working overtime in front of her computer. After observing her carefully for a long time, he did not notice the abnormality, "Cousin, what's wrong with your house? Did the water pipe burst?"

Cong Rong continued working on her laptop, "No."

Zhong Zhen frowned and thought, "Why did you move to my house? And so hurriedly?"

Cong Rong started smoking her way through: "I'm afraid of having the habit to bring girls back to live with you and I am here to supervise you."

Zhong Zhen pouted, "I don't have a girlfriend."

"Looking for special services is even worse." Cong Rong looked at him with a straight face, "violating the Public Security Management Punishment Law" is a crime. For general prostitutes, they are detained for more than 10 days and less than 15 days, and can be co-located a fine of less than 5,000 yuan."

Zhong Zhen was taken aback by the two words and interrupted him with wide eyes: "Cousin!"

Cong Rong's patience was exhausted, and she continued to work hard, and at the same time rewarded him with the phrase "Shut up!"

Even if Zhong Zhen was very insensitive, he felt something was wrong at the moment and leaned down in front of Cong Rong and asked for gossip, "Cousin, who are you hiding from?"

Cong Rong smiled coldly, leaning back on the chair and looking at him, "who do I need to hide from?"

"Yes true..." Zhong Zhen scratched his head and unintentionally said. “You are such a rational person that you should know that you can hide for a few days, but you can't hide forever."

Cong Rong felt a shiver, and then looked at Zhong Zhen's innocent look. After making sure that he hadn’t been skeptical about her, she asked Zhong Zhen to bathe first.

When Zhong Zhen was out of the study, Cong Rong placed her head on the table.

Yes! She is a lawyer! Why would such a rational person act like an ostrich, burying her head under the sand ?!

After finishing her work, Cong Rong turned off the computer and prepared to get some water from the kitchen. As soon as she exited the study, he saw the kitchen lights on, and a man's figure was faintly visible on the glass door.

She froze for a moment and slowly approached. When she opened the door, she saw Zhong Zhen standing in the kitchen and instant cooking noodles.

Cong Rong was startled for a few seconds, waiting for her heartbeat to stabilize before frowning fiercely and shouting at him: "Come out!"

For professional reasons, Cong Rong was always serious and indifferent when facing an outsider, but when facing his younger brother, she will be kind and pleasant. But that also means when she pulls a strict face, he must start worrying. "Why? Cousin, I Cooking noodles."

Cong Rong turned around and walked away, "Come out here to talk."

There must be a problem with this house. She must have been hallucinating to think that the person standing in the kitchen just now was Wen Shaoqing.

Zhong Zhen looked at her and walked out with a look of grievance, "Cousin, I'm hungry..."

The awkwardness in Cong Rong's heart passed quickly. She also knew that she was too rude to Zhong Zhen and took a sip of water to ease her expression. "It's okay, go cook the noodles and remember to sleep after eating."

After speaking, she went to the balcony to get some fresh air. She was tired when she stood by the railing.

Zhong Zhen waited a long time before he dared to go to the balcony, and asked carefully: "What's wrong with you, cousin?"

Cong Rong knew her anomalies and looked at the stars in the distance. Her eyes were deep, and she replied slowly after a while: "It's okay."

Zhong Zhen stood next to her and continued to chatter: "Cousin, you can tell me if you are in trouble, I am a man and I can help you."

Cong Rong was amused by him calling himself a "man", "That’s adult’s matter, not something children should care about."

Zhong Zhen was not convinced, "I'm not a kid anymore! I'm over twenty!"

Cong Rong sneered, "Then may I ask this man in his twenties, can I not help you out for your living expenses this month?"

"Don't!" Zhong Zhen immediately shook Cong Rong's arm. "Ah Jie(Sister)! I won't ask anymore! I will go to bed immediately!"

After turning around, he walked into the room and muttered, "It seems like I must help you find a boyfriend soon, for woman, it's not normal to be single for a long time..."

Cong Rong suddenly stopped him: "Zhong Zhen."

Zhong Zhen was startled, "Ah?"

"I didn't mean to yell at you just now. I apologize to you. I have been in a lot of things recently and I'm in a bad mood. Don't take it personally."

Her cousin has a good personality. Even if she sternly shouts at him, he will feel upset for a minute or two, but still turning to her and calling her affectionately.

Zhong Zhen listened suddenly and came back with a straight face, "Cousin, you always said that you used me to test water when you helped me secretly change the college admission choices. I know using me as a pathfinder wasn’t your intention! You have planned it for so long, but you gave me the best opportunity to be the first one to be a doctor instead of a lawyer. Success is not replicable, this kind of thing is the easiest to succeed when no one else is guarded. After the first time, our family will be cautious the next time, and for you, It’s not so easy to be rebellious a second time. After all, no parent likes to see the child 
challenge their bottom line again and again."

Cong Rong looked at him in surprise. He had a serious look on his face, and then smiled and played his hair until it became a chicken nest again before releasing her claws. This time Zhong Zhen didn't break free her hold, and he kept his eyes lit up for a long time: "Sister, I was in poor health when I was a kid, and my brothers and sisters in the family didn’t like me. They didn't play with me. It was you who brought me to play games, I always remember that."

Yeah, the weak baby who went through premature delivery, the boy was in the incubator when she tiptoed to peek at her newly born cousin, and she would turn to ask her aunt, "Why is my brother living in the box?" "When will my brother open his eyes" When her younger brother can start to play with her, he finally grows up.

Cong Rong was listening to him intently and felt a dangerous warning. Sure enough, Zhong Zhen held his fist and swore to say: "So rest assured, cousin, I will help you get a boyfriend back!"

Cong Rong couldn't bear to roll her eyes, "...you didn't come to repay me for my help, you came to revenge."
