Chapter 265: Loyal Dog Lord Chen
All this time, Li Shiyao had kept trying to run away from Fei Bai, so why would she take the initiative to ask for him as a bodyguard this time? Ning Meng never in her wildest imaginations had thought that Li Shiyao had created a play in her head. Fei Bai was still under Huo Beichen’s orders, but since he liked Li Shiyao, this could be a good opportunity after all.
Ning Meng did not give an immediate answer. She only replied, “I will need to think this over.”
Li Shiyao nodded. After they had both gone their separate ways, Ning Meng sent a text to Fei Bai as she headed to the hospital. Fei Bai wasted no time to reply: [I will follow Boss’ orders.]
He really wanted to take up this task, but as he was under Huo Beichen’s jurisdiction, he replied in this manner instead. Ning Meng sent Huo Beichen another text: [Is Fei Bai busy nowadays? Li Shiyao would like him to be her bodyguard~]
Huo Beichen seemed to be on his phone and instantly replied: [Sure.]
Both sides did not seem to have a problem with this proposal, and so, Ning Meng replied to Li Shiyao’s text. After she had replied, she noticed that Huo Beichen had sent another text over.
Lemon Extract: [Are you coming back tomorrow? I’ll pick you up.]
Ning Meng realized that she had not informed Huo Beichen about her delay in coming back, and she was filled with guilt as she replied to him: [There are still some matters that I have to settle in regards to God. I will be back in two days.]
After she had sent the text, her heart felt restless. Would Lord Chen be jealous? In reality, she had always maintained her distance from other people. Examples included Lin Qingbei and the other men who took an interest in the original Ning Meng. She did not meet them nor stayed in contact with them, but God was different… He was like a frail child who could not take care of himself.
While she was mulling over the matter, Huo Beichen sent her a reply: [I miss you.]
He seemed to be kittening up to her with these three words. This melted and tugged at Ning Meng’s heart.
She replied: [Big brother, I miss you too.]
All these coquettish behaviors had given Ning Meng’s goosebumps, and she quickly sent another text over: [I will fight to come back early.]
Huo Beichen: [I’ll be waiting for you.]
When Ning Meng saw these words, she felt as though he would stay where he was until she came back from work, and this kindled a warmth from within her. She stared at his nickname. Seeing Lord Chen in this state now, “Lemon Extract” seemed to not correspond to his temperaments any longer? Ning Meng gave it some thought and changed his nickname to “Loyal Dog Lord Chen”.
As soon as she had changed his nickname, Zhen Shanmei sent a text over to the “Happy Idiots” group.
Zhen Shanmei: [My mum just spent ten thousand to buy a rice cooker. It’s so high-end and it’s even voice-operated! This is an imported product! The twist is that the rice cooker could not understand Chinese. Hahahahaha! I laughed like crazy the whole time!]
Qi Shan: [Hahahaha]
Su Ye: [Hahahaha]
Li Shiyao finally had some time and also replied: [Hahahaha]
Fei Bai: [Hahahaha.jpg]
Ning Meng took a screenshot of the conversation and sent it to poor Huo Beichen.
Ning Meng: [Lord Chen, did this make you laugh?]
She was completely oblivious to the fact that she had just stabbed Huo Beichen’s heart with this text. She excitedly thought that Lord Chen did not like any lively environments and that she was doing him a service by sending him funny jokes like these… all so her other half would not feel left out!
Loyal Dog Lord Chen: [Yeah.]
Ning Meng did not catch the hint that his “yeah” was filled with his expectation as well as a feeling of being wronged all at the same time. Thus, she replied: [Next time I see something funny, I’ll screenshot it for you.]
