Chapter 229: Good Family Man
Fortunately, a new drug was developed in Sab, and things got better during this time.
Even so, taking five strong sleeping pills could only ensure that he slept for four hours every day. Besides that, as time went on, the medicine's efficacy had begun to decline over the past two months, such that he would be satisfied if he got just three hours of sleep daily.
However, he only had two pills last night, but slept for five hours without a hitch. This had not happened to him for many years.
It was also due to these five hours of high-quality sleep that he felt refreshed, and his body also felt much more relaxed.
Zhong Nuannuan did not know about these things, so she was not aware of the amazement and happiness in Chi Yang's heart at that moment. She only felt sorry for him when she heard him say that he had not slept like this for many years.
After a moment of silence, she replied, "I won't stay in school then, let me come over to give you acupuncture and massages every day so that you can sleep better."
"There's no need for that. Usually when you don't come over to the military base, I'll come to the city to look for you so long as I'm free. Did you forget that I told you I've bought a house near your school as an investment property? So, I'll just come to you whenever I'm free."
"Okay." Zhong Nuannuan nodded, hoping that her life could be like this every day.
The both of them continued to eat breakfast, but Zhong Nuannuan kept sensing Chi Yang's scorching gaze on her. She finally felt too embarrassed by his stare, and coughed awkwardly. "What's up?"
"Nuannuan, thank you."
Chi Yang expressed his gratitude very solemnly, and Zhong Nuannuan felt shy again after hearing it.
"What are you talking about? Aren't you my fiancé?"
"If so, why are you treating me like an outsider?"
Aiden and the others would never thank her.
Chi Yang could not help but laugh softly, the deep voice that came from his thick chest sounding as deep and melodious as a cello.
"Okay, I won't regard you as an outsider anymore."
The breakfast was finished in a heartwarming atmosphere.
Chi Yang helped her pack her things up, then sent her to the doorway. Zhong Nuannuan thought that the bag seemed to be more deflated compared to yesterday, then quickly remembered that the set of school uniform she had worn the day before had not been stuffed inside.
"I forgot to take my clothes." After saying that, she turned to walk back inside.
"I've already placed your coat into the washing machine."
"Then I'll take the rest of the stuff." She could not just leave her dirty underwear here.
"I've already washed the rest by hand."
She was speechless. When did this happen? Why was she unaware of this?
"Let's go, the driver is already waiting downstairs."
Zhong Nuannuan did not even know how she got out of the house. Her cheeks were burning the whole time.
She had not let anyone wash her underwear before.
As soon as she got downstairs, she saw a resentful Leng Qirui.
"Why are you here?"
Leng Qirui felt incredulous when faced with Zhong Nuannuan's question.
"Obviously I came to go to school with you! Why haven't you picked up any calls all this while?"
"Oh, I switched it to silent mode when I was treating your dad last night."
Only then did Zhong Nuannuan remember that had forgotten to switch it back to normal mode.
She took out her cell phone and found that in addition to Leng Qirui's five phone calls, there were more than 20 phone calls from the Jiang Family's landline and Jiang Shuwan's cell phone.
She did not have to think hard to figure out why Jiang Shuwan was calling her.
Chi Yang also saw the missed calls on Zhong Nuannuan's cell phone. His gaze deepened before he brought Zhong Nuannuan to the driver he had arranged for.
Upon seeing this, Leng Qirui interrupted, "My car is right in front, let's go in my car."
