Chapter 1251: Just Like a Woman of the Ancient Era
Jing Shaoze who was supposed to be tumbling with Ye Xi went upstairs. When he opened the door and saw Ning Shu sitting by the bed and drinking water, his eyes flashed for a moment. He walked over to Ning Shu and asked, “Why haven’t you gone to sleep?”
Ning Shu turned around with a surprised expression. “Didn’t you say that you were going to the company? Why did you come back?”
“I’ve already finished dealing with things. If I don’t come back, could it be that I should just sleep at the company?” Jing Shaoze looked towards the glass in Ning Shu’s hand. “Did you go downstairs just now to get water?”
Someone had kicked the door just now. Jing Shaoze scrutinized Ning Shu’s face.
Ning Shu took another sip of water and shook her head. “I didn’t go downstairs. Aunt Li got me this water earlier.”
Ning Shu’s nose twitched a little. “What’s that smell on you?” As she spoke, she moved closer to Jing Shaoze to sniff at him. Jing Shaoze hurriedly moved backwards a little. “I was so busy at the company that I got sweaty. It definitely smells bad. I’m going to go shower.”
Ning Shu’s lips hooked and she said in a gentle tone, “Then go wash up.”
Jing Shaoze smiled at Ning Shu gently, then headed into the bathroom. As Ning Shu listened to the sound of the water, she silently sneered.
He was tumbling with another woman right behind his wife’s back. It must be very exciting.
After taking a bath, Jing Shaoze lay down next to Ning Shu and said gently, “Let’s sleep.” Then he closed his eyes and fell deep asleep. The earlier exercise had clearly tired him out.
Ning Shu curled her lips in disdain as several ideas flashed through her head.
The next morning, Jing Shaoze cleaned himself up, then went to wake Ning Shu up. “Jingjing, it’s time to get up.”
Ning Shu opened her eyes. Jing Shaoze helped her up, then squatted down and placed her slippers in front of her so that she could slip them on just by stretching out her feet.
Following that, he picked up a comb to comb her hair. He skillfully pulled her hair up into a loose but elegant bun, then took an ancient era-style jade hairpin and inserted it into the bun.
Jing Shaoze looked at Ning Shu and said, “Jingjing, you’re just like a woman of the ancient era, gentle and beautiful.”
What bullshit! Her heart disease was so severe that she didn’t even dare to walk too fast. How could she not be gentle!? Even now, even though she was inwardly irritated enough to explode, her movements were still very slow.
Any action slightly too intense would cause her heart to start pounding irregularly.
“Thank you,” said Ning Shu while tugging up the corners of her lips. She looked at Jing Shaoze. He was dressed in a suit that made him look handsome and noble. His expression was gentle, his eyes were filled with affection, and he was extremely considerate towards her.
If she hadn’t seen Jing Shaoze and Ye Xi together last night, she would have thought that Jing Shaoze was a good man based on this.
He was tall and handsome, with a good figure and deeply passionate. There was no way for someone to be more perfect.
Ning Shu and Jing Shaoze went downstairs together. In the living room, Jing Shaoze’s mother was currently talking with Ye Xi. Ye Xi tugged on her collar from time to time in discomfort.
Jing Shaoze’s mother was smiling and her gaze contained an ambiguous hint as she looked at Ye Xi. From the looks of it, she clearly knew what had happened last night.
Jing Shaoze’s mother liked Ye Xi more than Ning Shu, her real daughter-in-law.
Ning Shu went over and said good morning to Jing Shaoze’s mother. Jing Shaoze’s mother turned to Ning Shu and said, “Ye Xi’s body is almost ready now. We’ll probably be able to implant the test tube embryo into her body soon.”
Ning Shu’s expression was indifferent. “Is that so?”
Ning Shu sized up Jing Shaoze’s mother. She had a polite and elegant manner as typical of an upper-class woman. She socialized well with the ladies of the upper class regardless of whether they were in the business or political sector and was like a fish in water at every banquet.
This was a very shrewd woman.
