Chapter 208: House
Her entire body was pressed against the bicycle.
When she came back to her senses, Chi Yang had already brought Zhong Nuannuan upstairs.
The middle-aged woman watched the duo holding hands as they disappeared up the stairs. She rolled her eyes and quickly left her trash at the staircase before running with her short legs up the stairs.
Chi Yang lived on the top floor. After the woman closed the door on the third floor, Zhong Nuannuan asked, ‘Who was that?”
“The wife of Commander Chen Jianjun from Theater of Operations C. Everyone calls her Sister-in-law Chen. You don’t have to pay any attention to her. You will come here often in the future. If you want to acknowledge the people here, then be my guest, but you don’t have to if you don’t want to. You don’t have to do something you don’t like for my sake.”
“Is that okay? Won’t people say that your partner is arrogant?”
Zhong Nuannuan did not like entertaining a rude person like Sister-in-law Chen and did not really want to interact with her. However, this was Chi Yang’s territory, and he was the one living here. It was not a good idea to cause trouble for him.
“Nothing’s wrong with that. In their eyes, I’m even more arrogant than you. So, if you’re able to bear chatting with them, you’re welcome to do so. If you don’t want to, you can just ignore them. They won’t do anything to you.”
As they talked, they soon arrived on the seventh floor. After the door was opened, the first thing Chi Yang did was turn on the lights. Zhong Nuannuan looked inside curiously and immediately noticed something: His place was minimalistic, clean, and organized.
Knowing Chi Yang’s personality, Zhong Nuannuan was shocked by how minimalist this room was.
Zhong Nuannuan scanned the room quickly. Aside from some basic necessities, there were not many things in this room.
It was a simple two-bedroom unit and was not even 70 square feet.
“There are not a lot of people with higher ranks than you in the military base. Why did they only give you a two-bedroom unit?”
She remembered that even her father had a three-bedroom unit in the courtyard of the military base. However, they had never stayed over before. This is because her father would only stay there when he was working overtime and could not go back to their home in the city.
“They wanted to give me a three-bedroom unit, but I rejected it. I live alone, so it would be troublesome to clean a house that big.”
He was afraid that his wife would complain about the size of this place, so Chi Yang immediately continued, “If you think this place is small, I have a mansion nearby. The next time you’re here, we can stay there.”
He thought it was troublesome to have a three-bedroom unit in the military base but he bought a mansion not far away from the base? Even though Jiang District was one of the first-tier districts in Camino, but amongst the 13 first-tier districts, Jiang District was the smallest.
If she did not know Chi Yang’s true character, she would believe him since he had been willing to spend 7.5 million on a nightgown.
However, this was not the case. After all, they had been married for six years in their past life. Aside from being a ‘prince’ in the military base, he also invested in a lot of assets with his friends.
He would not even want to invest in the properties in Emperor District, so Zhong Nuannuan could not believe that he had bought the mansion in the countryside of Jiang District solely for the purpose of appreciation.
It would be impossible that he wanted to stay there.
She also recalled him once saying that he had a house near her school. Eventually, Zhong Nuannuan realized that this man was lying to her.
Or rather, he might have been lying to her when he first said that. After which, he might have immediately gone to buy the house. In that case, it was possible that he really did have a house near her school by now.
