Chapter 34: Not Fair
EndlessFantasy Translation EndlessFantasy Translation
Zhong Qianqian was already embarrassed enough. After being scolded by Zhong Kuijun, her eyes became red.
Yet, she refused to give up. If Chi Yang did not want to peel the crayfish for her, she would take food for Chi Yang instead!
Zhong Kuijun and Jiang Shuwan were startled by Zhong Qianqian. She picked up a crayfish and put it on Chi Yang's plate. "Big Brother Chi Yang, don't just peel the crayfish for Nuannuan. You have to eat too! The crayfish Aunty Zhao made are amazing!"
2Chi Yang furrowed his brows. He immediately stopped peeling the crayfish. Judging from his reaction, it was as if the crayfish Zhong Qianqian gave him was covered in germs.
"Change my plates for me," Chi Yang ordered Aunty Zhao coldly.
… The room was silent.
When he saw that everyone was quiet, he said in a serious tone, "I am a germophobe."
3"Oh, Big Brother Chi Yang is a germophobe. I am sorry, I did not know that."
Zhong Nuannuan looked at Zhong Qianqian with an amused look. Tears were about to fall from her eyes, but she still managed to make herself look less stupid.
2Zhong Nuannuan decided to play a prank on her. She picked up a piece of braised pork from her plate and put it onto Chi Yang's.
As expected, Zhong Qianqian got mad. "Nuannuan, Big Brother Chi Yang said he's a germophobe. Also, did you not know that Big Brother Chi Yang does not eat fatty meat? Aunty Zhao, change the plates."
Zhong Nuannuan looked at Chi Yang apologetically. She did not know that he did not eat fatty meat.
Or rather, she did not know the things that he liked or hated.
In a surprising turn of events, Chi Yang picked up the piece of braised pork and nonchalantly put it in his mouth even before Aunty Zhao could change the plates. He savored it for a bit before swallowing the meat.
When Zhong Kuijun saw this, his eyes twitched.
It was a known fact to the chefs in the military base that Chi Yang did not eat fatty meat. It was why there would never be the slightest trace of fatty meat in his food. Now, however…
"Um… You don't have to eat it if you don't like it." Zhong Nuannuan felt guilty after he swallowed such a big piece of fatty meat. She hurriedly handed him a glass of water.
Chi Yang took a big gulp of water to combat his nausea. He said to Zhong Nuannuan in a gentle yet stern tone, "As long as it's from you, anything would taste good."
"Then eat some vegetables so that you'll feel less greasy." Zhong Nuannuan promptly picked up some vegetables for Chi Yang.
After eating the vegetables, it was as if Chi Yang had eaten the most delicious food in the world. He ate three more spoonfuls of rice.
Jiang Shuwan was so angry that she could not stand this any longer. She pretended to taunt her unintentionally, "Nuannuan, before this, you wouldn't pay attention to Chi Yang no matter how much he flirted with you. But now you're so close to him after going to prison. What happened to you? What changed you?"
Everyone in the family including Chi Yang wanted to know the answer.
"Mom, I was bullied in the detention center. Chi Yang was the one who hired someone to protect me. He was also the one who helped me with my court case, and that's the only reason why I managed to get out safely. I think the most basic trait a human should have is gratitude. If someone helped me and I did nothing about it, what's the difference between me and those ungrateful animals?"
Everyone's faces changed when they heard what Zhong Nuannuan had to say. They felt embarrassed.
Ignoring what her sister said, Zhong Qianqian twisted her face all together to taunt Zhong Nuanuan, "Nuannuan, you're only so good to Big Brother Chi Yang because you want to thank him. But isn't love the most basic thing that a couple should have when they're together? Don't you think you're being unfair to Big Brother Chi Yang?"
Zhong Nuannuan was already very obviously expressing her dissatisfaction with the whole family, but Zhong Qianqian still decided to taunt her. Jiang Shuwan pinched Zhong Qianqian's thigh under the table in fear, urging her to stop talking.
