“Face? You’re talking to me about face? The fact that you were able to make me your wife should be enough face for you. Rumors of your reputation (you’re a legendary figure), have long spread around the hospital. Namely, how you came to our hospital and, in less than a year, successfully chased me into the palm of your hand,” Xiao Ruyi teased as she pinched Tang Ren’s ears like a willful girlfriend.
“Ouch, ouch, ouch. Wifey, hurry up and let’s go! If you continue to pinch my ears, then they will fall off,” Tang Ren said, pretending to be in unbearable pain.
Xiao Ruyi’s lips curled as she spoke, “This is pain? I’m not even putting in any strength.”
Tang Ren smiled awkwardly and said, “Wifey, if you don’t think it’s painful now, then you will definitely pinch me even harder.”
“Aren’t you glad to be pinched by me?”
“Glad, yes, I’m glad. However, if wifey wants to pinch me, then she should just go ahead. Hehehe…” Tang Ren unwillingly laughed.
The girl standing next to them was wearing a white long-sleeved hoodie. Smiling, she breathed enviously, “You guys have such a great relationship!”
“If you can get together with my brother, then your relationship will definitely be better than ours. My brother is totally a family-oriented guy. He’s graceful in the hall and great in the kitchen. Most importantly, he is very dedicated. As long as he falls in love with a girl, he never strays and treats her right forever. He’s totally devoted,” Xiao Luo said, loosening her grip on Tang Ren’s ears. She related good things about her brother. Although, of course, everything was slightly exaggerated.
The girl chuckled softly and didn’t say another word. In her heart, she had built up a certain expectation of Xiao Luo.
Just then, a white Corolla stopped in front of them, and the door opened. Xiao Luo got out from the driver’s side.
He was dressed in a black track jacket with a slightly opened neckline that revealed a white crewneck undershirt. Two long red stripes on the sleeves gave the jacket a cool look.
His distinctive facial features were sculpted, resulting in an abnormally handsome face with a strong jawline framed by his thick, jet-black hair. Under his eyebrows were a pair of deep-set eyes, a tall nose, and perfectly-sized lips with a dazzling smile.
Xiao Ruyi ran to him like a gust of wind and threw herself into Xiao Luo’s arms. She was like a kitten lying coquettishly in the arms of her master.
Tang Ren stepped forward and shouted to Xiao Luo with a smile, “Brother.”
“Don’t hug people randomly! Aren’t you afraid that Tang Ren will get jealous?” Xiao Luo said flatly.
“I don’t care. I don’t care about that. I haven’t seen you in such a long time, and I just want to hug you,” Xiao Ruyi replied, hugging Xiao Luo even tighter. In an instant, she had become a docile little lamb, totally unlike the strong, unruly young woman who had just bullied Tang Ren.
Xiao Luo shook his head helplessly.
The car door opened, and Zhang Dashan climbed out of the passenger seat, greeting Xiao Ruyi, “Hi, pretty girl! Long time no see!”
“Big-faced Zhang, why did you come too?” Xiao Ruyi said as she released Xiao Luo. This was a surprise.
Xiao Luo was stunned. He didn’t know that his sister called Zhang Dashan by that nickname. A smirk crossed his face. He realized that his sister had used these three words brilliantly—they were perfect for describing Zhang Dashan’s looks.
Zhang Dashan’s face turned green at once, as though he had been petrified in place. “Sister Luo,” he said, “can’t you be nice? No matter what, I’m still your brother’s bro, so there must be better ways to address me than that, right? For example, ‘Brother Zhang,”Brother Shan,’ etcetera. If none of those work, then you can just call me by my actual name.”
“Sorry, sorry. As soon as I saw you, I just blurted out what I was thinking. But your face really is too big!” Xiao Ruyi said apologetically.
Zhang Dashan felt like his heart had been stabbed twice. It was painful. He wondered in his heart: Is this an apology? If so, then what type of apology is this?
Xiao Ruyi continued to say, “I think you should consider getting a face-lift. Look at all that meat on your face—fat as pork belly. It’s hideous.”
Every sentence and word was like a knife thrust firmly into Zhang Dashan’s heart. Now, he finally understood what was meant by the expression ‘tons of injuries.’
“Sister Luo, are you sure that you’re here to introduce your brother to someone and not deliberately targeting me?” Zhang Dashan asked. He was about to vomit blood. All this talk about plastic surgery and his face being as fat as pork belly. F*ck! She had no need to go at him like that.
This time, Xiao Ruyi changed the subject and brought the girl in the hoodie to the front. Smiling, she introduced her: “Brother, this is Sun Yu, a belle from our department.” She then proceeded to introduce Xiao Luo to Sun Yu: “Sun Yu, this is my brother, Xiao Luo. Next to him is his good friend, Zhang Dashan.”
“Hello!” Sun Yu said. She was a little shy, so her voice was very soft.
Zhang Dashan looked the girl up and down. Her long dark hair draped over her shoulders, and her skin was as white as a freshly peeled egg. Her big eyes twinkled as she talked, and her small red lips were unmistakable. She had a graceful figure with a small waist. Her entire appearance gave off the impression of a quick-witted beauty.
He lightly nudged Xiao Luo with his shoulders and gave him a look, hinting that this girl was not bad, and he should grab on to this opportunity.
Xiao Luo rolled his eyes at him, then nodded politely he responded to Sun Yu, “Hello!”
Just like that, the two of them politely greeted one another. Then, they had nothing else to say.
Xiao Ruyi broke the awkward atmosphere with a smile and said, “So, now that you’re all acquainted, let’s go! It’s time for some food. I’m starving.”
“What are you waiting for? Get in the car, quickly.”
Zhang Dashan echoed Xiao Ruyi’s words then sat himself down in the passenger seat. He’d thought about this before he came. Tonight, his car belonged to Xiao Luo. Since his friend was on a blind date, having a car would make him seem well-mannered, inspire confidence, and leave a better impression on the girl.
“I’m driving again?”
Xiao Luo didn’t have any interest in this blind date at all. He had come here to see Xiao Ruyi and Tang Ren, so he didn’t have many thoughts about Sun Yu.
“D*mnit, this car is yours, so if you don’t drive, then who will?” Zhang Dashan asked, reprimanding Xiao Lou loudly while continually dropping hints.
Xiao Luo was speechless, but his mind was clear.
Xiao Ruyi and Tang Ren knew full well that the car was Zhang Dashan’s, but they didn’t intend to expose him. In their materialistic society, a man with a vehicle significantly improved his success rates on blind dates.
Five people got into the car. Xiao Ruyi had already thought about what he wanted to eat and acted as a live GPS, showing Xiao Luo the way.
Sun Yu glanced at the car’s interior curiously then asked, “Did it cost a lot to buy this car?”
Although Zhang Dashan had said the car belonged to him, Xiao Luo didn’t have much to add. So when Sun Yu asked that question, he was focused on driving and subconsciously thought that her question was directed at Zhang Dashan.
Zhang Dashan hated Xiao Luo for being unable to meet his expectations and pushed him to reply, insisting, “Brother, she’s asking you a question.”
“What did she ask?”
“She asked you how much this car cost,” Zhang Dashan said, anxious for Xiao Luo to get with the program.
