Chapter 45: Meng Meng, I’m Here To Save You!
“So, you want me to kneel on the remote control?” asked Ning Meng.
Little Tian Tian handed her the remote control for the TV.
“You really want to watch TV?”
“Can I get my phone?”
Immediately, Little Tian Tian brought her cellphone to her!
It seemed that being grounded was not exactly a bad thing after all. Ning Meng plopped herself on the sofa comfortably and caressed Little Tian Tian. It rested its head on her feet and lay down on the ground, obviously contented and happy.
“Little Tian Tian, it’s time for to you to lose some weight!” said Ning Meng when she felt an increasing heft on her leg.
“Little Tian Tian, I now know why Huo Beichen was so pissed just now.”
He believed his wife would cheat on him if he did not enforce the overprotective rules he set.
“When can I go out? Or, does it mean that I will never regain my freedom ever again?”
Little Tian Tian was unable to give her an answer.
Downstairs, Huo Beichen was still standing at the same spot, unmoved. The irked frowns that twisted his face made anyone wonder what was really going in his mind. Suddenly, Ning Meng could hear two people arguing outside the villa.
“Can you not always jump to conclusions before finding out the whole truth? You are about to cause a huge misunderstanding between husband and wife. Don’t you know that?” asked Su Ye gently.
“I’m doing all I can to stop the media from releasing the photo. I didn’t expect someone to use the photo against her,” said Qi Shan.
“You shouldn’t let yourself ‘be affected by false truths. You’ll need to apologize to the boss later.”
“I’m not too good at this kind of thing… can you do it on my behalf?”
So, both of them opened the doors. After feeling the icy atmosphere in the villa, Qi Shan straightened up like a guilty primary school kid. Su Ye looked at him and took out his cellphone to show Huo Beichen the CCTV footage.
“Boss, the incident that happened between your wife and Lin Qingbei is a huge misunderstanding. Just look at this footage.”
He could see that Lin Qingbei was the one that took the initiative to hug Ning Meng. One second later, Ning Meng pushed him away and started to beat him up!
“Didn’t I tell you not to touch me?! You can only watch me with your eyes! Absolutely no touching!” scolded Ning Meng in the video.
It showed that she was angry when Lin Qingbei touched her. Huo Beichen was really surprised by Ning Meng’s reaction. He then looked at her room. This time, Huo Beichen realized that he had made a huge mistake.
Suddenly, someone came knocking at the door. Qi Shan then went to answer it.
“Where is Meng Meng?” asked Ning Wentao.
“She is in Room 204,” answered Qi Shan.
Ning Wentao did not dare to look at Huo Beichen in the eye. He ran past him straight to her room.
“Meng Meng, I will always keep to my promise! I’m here to rescue you!”
Upon hearing that, Qi Shan felt even more pressure from Huo Beichen.
“Eh? Boss? Who tossed the bowl on the floor?” asked an obviously scared Qi Shan.
Su Ye looked at him, disappointed. He had asked the wrong question at the wrong time.
