Chapter 79: Hubby, Why Are You Setting Me Up?
EndlessFantasy Translation EndlessFantasy Translation
The room temperature instantly dropped by thousands of Celcius, as though the place had been plunged straight into the depths of a world of never-ending winter.
Ning Meng held her phone to her mouth and calmly said.
“No. You’ve got it wrong.”
The kid responded, “What?”
Ning Meng yelled into the phone, “I am your grandma!”
She then took a long, deep breath before speaking to him earnestly.
“Dear grandson, if you’re sick in the mind, please get help. Why come to me? I’m not a veterinarian!”
After gracefully finishing her roast, Ning Meng quickly hung up the phone and turned her head toward Huo Beichen. “The boy got the wrong number. I don’t know him.”
Huo Beichen stared at her for a long time, his cold eyes deep in thoughts, contemplating something that the others could barely understand.
Ning Meng felt uneasy seeing him like this. This was not the time to worry about whether or not he believed her, she needed to draw another card from her deck.
Thus, she let out a fake cough and then mocked up a fake angry face.
“Hubby, why are you setting me up?”
“Because of your schemes, now, all I know is loving you~ I couldn’t bear to see someone else anymore!”
Although this time her flatteries were not as clever as always, Ning Meng could feel that the freezing winter-like aura on Huo Beichen had gradually worn off. Letting out a sigh of relief, Ning Meng walked away.
Suddenly, her phone vibrated. It was the 4-member WeChat group again.
Qi Shan: [Stupid woman. The movie made a lot of money today. Aren’t you going to thank us? @Ning Meng]
Ning Meng: [But I did.]
Qi Shan: [… aw, why so cheap? You should at least repay us with material stuff too! Without our support, could your movie have done so well?]
Ning Meng was thankful that these buddies had helped her out earlier. Yet, Qi Shan was really pushing it. Looking at his message as she walked up the stairs, Ning Meng’s mouth twitched.
Unwilling to waste her energy to type out a reply, Ning Meng put her finger on the voice message button.
“Tsk~ really now? Your ‘support’ has even adversely affected the actual seating number! Do you think it’s easy for my movie to gross 1.5 billion yuan? All the cinemas were fully booked yesterday! And I didn’t beg you to support my movie! Not once!”
After sending the voice message, she could feel that the house had started to become freezing cold once again.
Ning Meng could not help but to turn back and look at Huo Beichen. She was puzzled—she had just soothed Huo Beichen down earlier. She had merely walked away for just one minute and he was pouting again.
Ning Meng thought to herself.
She then quickly dashed into her bedroom. As soon as she closed her door, a voice message came through.
It was that kid who had made the Wechat Call earlier—his username was “God”.
When she pressed the button to play the message, the kiddish voice sounded on her phone again.
Ning Meng was speechless. Did she not scold him enough?
“Hey, boy. Can you shake your head for me?”
A moment later, the boy replied, “Okay, I shook my head. What’s the matter?”
Ning Meng replied, “Can you hear the sea?”
Ning Meng then yelled into the phone angrily, “Are you nuts?! Do you just pull any girl on the street and call them your wife? Don’t you know that you’re going to cause trouble for people by doing this?”
The boy weakly responded, “Don’t you remember me?”
“Sobs. We were lovers in the online game. You used to love me calling you my wife~”
Ning Meng quickly looked at her phone in terror. Oh, yes. It was not a mistake. The username that Han Meilin had sent to her was “God”.
Ning Meng then tried to shove down her astonishment and asked, “How old are you?”
“20 years old.”
Good. He was 6 years younger than her.
Ning Meng put a hand on her forehead to ease her headache. This was just a kid! How could the “Original Ning Meng” seduce someone that young?!
Suddenly, a message from Han Meilin got through.
[Meng Meng, I’ve just gotten news that that nephew of mine had fallen in love with a woman online, so that’s why he’s been depressed lately. Don’t worry, I’m sending someone to investigate. When I find out who was the one who toyed with my nephew’s heart, I’m going to tear that succubus into pieces!]
