To him, it was a foreign feeling. It had been years since he last experienced it.
He’s had feelings for someone before. He dated around, too. But he had never had such strong feelings towards anyone before. But at that moment, he almost couldn’t resist the urge to hug her.
‘How nice would it be to hold her small frame?’
These thoughts flashed through his mind. Immediately, he shook his head to get his mind out of the gutter.
“Little lass, you’ve learned to lie?”
He leaned against the backrest of the chair, creating a distance between him and Su Yue.
Su Yue didn’t take notice of his actions. She sat back down, curling her lips as she replied, “But I really want to get a tattoo. I think it’s really cool.”
Ming Ansheng thought about it for a while before he said, “If your Third sister-in-law agrees, I’ll bring you to get it done.”
If it were up to him, he would have taken her to get her tattoo done without asking for permission first, but now, he was afraid of being found out.
He was afraid that there would be a slip-up somewhere and they would realize his feelings for her.
Even if he—Ming Ansheng—had to marry someone he did not love, he still couldn’t have any thoughts about this little lass.
“It’s hard to persuade my Third sister-in-law,” Su Yue angrily said, pursing her lips. Then she thought of something. “Brother Qi Lei is accompanying me to the hospital tomorrow. I’ll ask him to bring me instead.”
When Ming Ansheng heard it, he didn’t think before immediately blurting, “I’ll take you there, but will you give me away?”
When she had suggested asking Qi Lei to accompany her, his mind flooded with images of Su Yue’s sweet smile whenever she greeted Qi Lei.
In that instant, he felt like he was going berserk.
Su Yue shook her head. “Never mind, Brother Qi Lei will definitely know where I can get a tattoo.”
There was silence.
Young Master Ming felt a million stabs to his heart.
Why did he feel like he just gave a good opportunity to tha t ‘Traditional Chinese Medicine fellow’ ?
Now it made him feel even crazier.
He said, “My friend did my tattoo. She has superb skills. It will hurt badly if you get it done at other places.”
Su Yue calmly shook her head. “I’m not afraid of pain.”
The pain was the thing she was least scared of.
Ming Ansheng was speechless as he touched his forehead. He felt like slapping himself. But he refused to give up. “Alright, but you must find a proper place to get it done because some shops are shams.”
What did it mean by ‘one casts aside that which is given, but treasures that which is earned’ ?
This was a real-life example.
Su Yue frowned when she heard it. She hesitated before nodding and said, “All right then, you bring me there.”
Though she sounded forced, Ming Ansheng was happy. “Call me when you want to get it done.”
He finally understood humankind’s innate ‘low’ nature.
Su Yue asked, “Any time? Do I have to wait for the weekends?”
Ming Ansheng smiled. “Anytime. You don’t have to wait for the weekends.”
After he thought about it, he realized that his actions might have been too obvious.
Su Yue was the first person to be able to have him at her back and call. No one before her, or after.
As Ming Ansheng thought about it, he laughed at his own expense.
How could they have a future together?
Su Yue nodded. “Okay.”
Then she picked up her Coke and drank.
Ming Ansheng furrowed his eyebrows as he watched her. “You should eat less of these unhealthy fast foods.”
“I still have one chicken wing left. I don’t want it anymore. Do you want to have it?” Su Yue took out the chicken wing from the bag and offered it to Ming Ansheng.
Ming Ansheng stared at the chicken wing for a long time. Logically speaking, he should have rejected it because he didn’t like such kind of food. It was to the extent that he had some hatred for it.
