TWQQF ch 229 - Plotted Against By The Relatives; An Attack At Midnight (14)

Seeing that the smile brightened more and more on her mother’s face as days pass by, even Cheng Xiao Xiao must admit that Luo Yujie was no doubt very good with her words. Her mother is too happy to worry about anything now.

“Cousin Xiao Xiao….”

It was the annoying voice of Tian Jiang, the one that felt the entire world was beneath him was now looking at her with tenderness, as though he was looking at a girl that he was fond of.

His look gave Cheng Xiao Xiao goosebumps. Putting down her paint brush, she asked, “What’s the matter?”

“Cousin Xiao Xiao, you like to paint? Eh, what is this you are drawing? It’s quite cute, and funny!” Tian Jiang didn’t let the coldness on her face bother him at all but continued to comment on the cute version of a puppy that she was drawing.

It may have been her look that roused his interest previously, but after their contacts in the past few days; she had piqued his interest and curiosity with all the random things that she knew.

Searching for her had became a habit of his, even though she had never been friendly to him, he still found the encounters interested. He has long lost his arrogance around her.

“What can I do for you?”

He approached her, Cheng Xiao Xiao got up and walked away, stopped some five steps away and watching him looking at the comics she was drawing.

She had always been a comic enthusiast in her past life; she was good enough to sell some of her work for money. Now that this skill was not useful in in era, she merely drew to entertain her younger brothers and sister.

“Cousin Xiao Xiao, the weather is so nice today. What say we go for a walk?”

He liked the drawing a lot but didn’t ask for it; he knew she’d never gift it to him.

“I’m busy!” said Cheng Xiao Xiao without so much as looking at him.

Tian Jiang looked slightly embarrassed. He fished out a small pouch from his chest and placed it on top of the table, “I won’t bother you since you are busy. Here’s a small gift for you; I will swing by again in the afternoon to chat!”

Tian Jiang left before she could respond, as though he was worried that she’d try and stop him.

After he was gone, Cheng Xiao Xiao looked pouch laying on top of the table in her kiosk and laughed coldly, “Really? He thought I’m some naïve little girl?”

“Hehe, you are a naïve little girl in his eyes, Young Mistress?”

“Take a look and see what he’s got!”

Cheng Xiao Xiao didn’t even want to touch it and gave it to little Yuteng directly.

Little Yuteng bent her finger and the pouch flew toward her and landed squarely in her little hand. From inside the pouch she fished out a pair of jade earrings.

“This is not bad, Young Mistress, are you going to wear it?” asked little Yuteng with a big smile.

Cheng Xiao Xiao took a quick glance at it and said to her nonchalantly, “You can have them!”

“Thank you, Young Mistress!” little Yuteng had no intention of wearing them. She tossed the earrings directly and crunched down on them loudly. Her action made Cheng Xiao Xiao’s brows twitched and she said helplessly, “I can’t believe it. You’d even eat jade?”

“I am Yuteng (jade vine), it’s only normal that I eat jade!” replied little Yuteng casually.

“Your drawings are so pretty, Young Mistress!” said little Yuteng as she looked at the dog in the drawing. Her eyes lit and she asked happily, “Young Mistress, can you draw me too?”

“Oh? You want me to draw you?” Cheng Xiao Xiao was a bit surprised, “Hmm, I’m in a good mood today, why not?”
