Problematic Little Sister Fell In Love With Me - chapter 344
“How can your grandma eat that? Let’s go to the restaurant to eat.” I said to Shu Tong.
“No need, Little Chu,” Shu Tong’s grandma pulled me to sit on the side of the bed and smiled, “I’m a little tired, and I really don’t want to move. I am very happy that you can come to see me. The reason why I came to Bei Tian city this time is to see you. We are not here to make you spend money to buy us clothes or treat us to expensive meals.
“Hehe, you still have work tomorrow, right? Then go home early and take a good rest. I heard Tong Tong say that your parents are staying abroad and you are living with your little sister. If you go back late, your little sister will definitely be worried…”
The old woman’s words made me feel very ashamed. My parents had never gone abroad before.
Liusu also said, “Nan… It’s already past seven. Cousin-in-law, you probably don’t know, my grandma, my aunt, and my uncle are different from us. They are used to going to bed early.”
I was dazed for a moment. Only then did I realize that seven o’clock was just the beginning of the evening for me, but for Shu Tong’s parents who were used to going to the farm to work early in the morning, it was already very late. Especially in this season; there was a lot of farm work. The temperature was high during the day, so they often got up at four or five o’clock in the morning when there was only just a little bit of sunlight outside. Their daily routine was not something that they could adjust in a day or two.
“Okay,” I patted the back of the old woman’s hand and smiled, “Then you have a good rest. I have already arranged my work, so I don’t need to go back to the company tomorrow. I will pick you up at nine o’clock in the morning and take you to some fun places in Bei Tian…”
Although I was Shu Tong’s fake boyfriend, plus the deception itself made me feel guilty, I really liked the old woman who cared for her granddaughter from the bottom of my heart, so my intention to show her around Bei Tian city tomorrow was sincere. Perhaps it was because I lost my mother when I was very young, I always yearned for the caring people inexplicably. The appearance of my stepmother made up for the vacancy in my soul and made me lose resistance to the caring people.
When the people, who believed that there was true love in the world, met such caring people, they would always unconsciously want to do something for them. However, Shu Tong’s father’s reaction was beyond my expectation. To be precise, I was startled by his reaction. I didn’t know why he who had been staying silently would suddenly decline loudly, “No need!”
I was stunned by this simple and straightforward refusal. Shu Tong’s mother glared at him angrily and then said to me in a flustered manner, “No need, Xiao Chu, we don’t want to take up your and Tong Tong’s working time.. ”
I looked at Shu Tong puzzledly, “Aren’t you on a holiday?”
“Only the students in the first year and the second year have a holiday,” Obviously, Shu Tong was still in a bad mood after arguing with her mother.
After answering my question, she turned to her parents and carried on with a slightly annoyed tone, “I have to invigilate the year three’s mock exam, and I’ve clearly told you that already. But you still have to choose those two days to come to Bei Tian city. Didn’t I tell you that it is better to come over on the weekend? I’m a new teacher in my school, so it’s not appropriate for me to ask for leave now. If I do that, the senior teachers who are already not satisfied with new teachers will definitely complain about it. I really don’t know what you two are thinking. Have you ever thought about me?…”
“Cousin!” Liusu interrupted Shu Tong’s complaint because the expressions of Shu Tong’s parents were a little ugly. But it wasn’t anger or dissatisfaction. I couldn’t help feeling strange. Their eyes seemed to be evasive as if they didn’t want to tell Shu Tong something…
“Did I say anything wrong? They clearly…”
I knew that Shu Tong didn’t blame her parents for causing her troubles. She just felt guilty that her parents had caused me a lot of trouble. But her attitude toward her parents still made me frown my brows, “Shu Tong… how can you talk to your parents like that? Do you still remember the assignment you gave to Yuan Yuan?”
Shu Tong was dazed, “Huh? The observation assignm-”
Halfway through her reply, she suddenly stopped as if she knew what I wanted to say. I said to her in a criticizing tone, “you want to teach your students that their parents’ lives aren’t easy, but as their teacher, you failed to understand it yourself. Do you think you are a good teacher?”
Shu Tong looked at me aggrievedly but didn’t know how to refute me. In the eyes of Shu Tong’s granma, this scene was just like a husband criticizing his wife for making a silly mistake. The old woman couldn’t help but have a very big smile on her face…
Shu Tong’s mother also took the opportunity to say to Shu Tong, “Actually, Li Gazi, the contractor of our village, is also working in Bei Tian City. I’ve heard that he is currently working on a big project, so we decided to come here earlier and meet him.
“Your second aunt’s son has dropped out of school, and he doesn’t want to go back to school to study. He wants to go to the city to work, so your second aunt asked us if we can meet with Li Gazi and ask him if he needed any workers. You know Li Gazi has a good relationship with your father, so he may be able to help your second aunt…”
“Oh…” Shu Tong peeked at my expression inexplicably and answered. She was no longer having a temper.
“Yes,” Shu Tong’s father hurriedly answered, “He will be off work tomorrow, that’s why we decided to come to the city earlier.”
I didn’t know if I was too sensitive. Before Shu Tong’s father replied hurriedly, I seemed to see Shu Tong’s mother glanced at him secretly. It was as if she wanted to remind him of something.
“I was trying to help you, why did you criticize me in front of my parents.” After bidding farewell to Shu Tong’s parents, Shu Tong complained to me in an annoyed tone as soon as we entered the elevator. She blew out her cheeks and glared at me angrily as if I had made her lose her face in front of her parents.
“I am curious. Why do you want to help me? This is a great opportunity for you to make fun of me. Unless… No way… Are you falling in love with me?” I quickly pulled Liusu over and hid behind her.
While resting my chin on her shoulder, rubbing her face with mine, and smelling the fragrant scent of her hair, I jokingly said, “although it indeed cost me a lot, I want to use this to prove my determination to be your cousin-in-law, so you shouldn’t get the wrong idea. I know that I am a very charming guy, but you really shouldn’t fall in love with me. Otherwise, you will hurt your cousin…”
“Nan Nan! How dare you tease my cousin in front of me?! ”
“Am I not your cousin-in-law at the moment? If I don’t tease her, do you want me to tease you?”
“You wish!” Shu Tong blushed with embarrassment and had the intention to hit me. She calmed herself down and said seriously, “Anyway, I want to ask you something serious. About that Min Rou, who is she really? Why is she helping us like this?”
I grabbed Liusu’s soft punch and dragged her into my arms, wanting to hug her. In the beginning, she resisted, but after hearing what Shu Tong asked, she stopped resisting and let me hug her in front of Shu Tong. I knew she was jealous, that was why she was willing to let me hug her.
She was still suspicious of my relationship with Xiao Zi.
“I refuse to answer your question. If you really want to know, you can ask Liusu once you two get back home.” I deliberately changed the topic and said, “Since tomorrow your parents want to meet their friend, and I also have some other business to do, so I won’t be coming over.”
Shu Tong’s mother didn’t want me to drive them to meet with Li Gazi, probably they felt embarrassed to ask for a favor when there was someone else around, so I didn’t insist on giving them a lift.
“You have some other business to do?” Shu Tong jokingly said, “You can stop acting now, you are not a real boss of a company, what business can you possibly have?”
“I need to go to Fengchang.”
“Go to Fengchang?” Shu Tong’s face suddenly changed. She pulled Liusu out of my arms and asked me with an angry face, “I almost forgot about this. Didn’t you promise my cousin that you will leave Fengchang? Why are you going back to that company again? Is it because of Mo Fei? You are such a playboy…”
“Cousin!” Liusu stopped Shu Tong from getting angrier and angrier, “Nan Nan went back because of other reasons. He has no other choices. If you really want to know, I will tell you once we get back. Please don’t scold him. He is also very troubled by it…”
I knew that Liusu was worried about me, and I also knew that Liusu didn’t completely believe that the reason why I went back to Fengchang had nothing to do with Mo Fei…
Liusu was really considerate of me.

The sofa that was dirtied by the drunk Dongfang little brat was still not dry, but for the three girls, it did not affect them to watch TV comfortably. The four wooden chairs in the living room were lined up side by side, and they were covered by the quilt I used for the winter. Although it was a bit small, it was like a reduced version of the sofa, but in this way, I also got nowhere else to sit.
Just like people often said that to get something, one must give something. Although I was often ‘exploited’ by the three girls, it was not that I got nothing in return. The invasion of the three girls made my night no longer only have the radiation of the computer screen, there were often some adrenaline-stimulating scenes. For example, now…
