The leather stool was naturally being used so one could put on footwear conveniently.
As the shoe cabinet was not very big, it was evident that the stool was mostly used when putting on one of a few pairs of commonly worn shoes for going out.
Further inside was the spacious living room.
Though the living room was spacious, it did not look cold and lonely at all.
It had been very warmly decorated by Shi Xiaoya.
Han Zhuoling totally did not expect that he would step right into her house the moment he got out of the lift.
He could see everything on the opposite end.
Han Zhuoling: “…”
Shi Xiaoya then explained, “This is an apartment where the lift goes straight to your doorstep.
I was afraid that if I explained downstairs, you might misunderstand and think that I dont trust you or Im guarding against you.
Thats why I didnt want to let you send me up.”
Or else, how was she supposed to explain
Young Master Ling, my house lift opens right into my house, and thats why its not convenient for you to send me
Why is it not convenient
I dont want to let you inside my house.
Wouldnt that be the conclusion anyone would come to
But she really did not think of it that way.
She just felt that it was quite late and she was not exactly very close to Han Zhuoling.
And letting a mature man like him enter her own residence seemed a little weird somehow.
Han Zhuoling cleared his throat awkwardly.
“If theres anything else next time, you can just tell me straight.
I will take it literally and wont think too much into it.”
Shi Xiaoya nodded.
She was being way too obedient like this.
Han Zhuoling almost wanted to reach out and pat her fluffy head.
He finally managed to resist the urge, but now that he was standing at her doorstep, he felt a little conflicted.
His heart was itching a little.
He really wanted to go in and take a look but felt that it was not good for him to suggest it.
He already said downstairs that he was not going to come in.
His coming in was an accident.
Shi Xiaoya thought about it.
She felt that since he had already stepped in, it would not seem very nice to just let him go like that.
Han Zhuoling did not say that he would leave either.
Shi Xiaoya glanced at Han Zhuoling and said, “Why dont you stay and have a drink before you go”
Han Zhuoling rubbed his stomach and said seriously, “Actually, Im a bit hungry.”
Shi Xiaoya glanced at the time.
It was actually only 9 pm now.
The welcome party started at 7 pm and had lasted for only one and a half hours.
Adding the time they took to come back, it was now only 9 pm.
“Didnt you eat dinner already” Shi Xiaoya had a doubtful expression on her face.
Han Zhuoling felt that Shi Xiaoyas face was spelling out the words “Dont lie to me.”
“I didnt eat much,” Han Zhuoling said.
“I arrived a little late to begin with.
I was afraid that I would be late for the event, so I ate just a little.”
Han Zhuoling glanced at her and said, “And I was thinking of how you still havent forgiven me, so I didnt have much appetite either.”
Shi Xiaoya felt so nervous that her ears twitched subconsciously.
Han Zhuoling thought it was very interesting to watch.
He realized the tips of her reddened ears were twitching and resembled those of kittens and puppies.
It was really fun to watch.
Shi Xiaoya could not help puffing her cheeks.
If someone else had said those words, shed think they were probably flirting with her.
But since they came from a man with a mind-blowing IQ and a negative-value EQ like Han Zhuoling, he probably meant them literally.
How would he know anything about flirting
Shi Xiaoya was explaining this to herself while reminding herself to certainly not think too much about it.
However, she still could not stop her heart from beating increasingly rapidly.
Han Zhuoling was still waiting for her answer, so Shi Xiaoya said, “Then Ill see what I can make.
You can go in first.”
Shi Xiaoya took out a pair of mens slippers from the shoe cabinet and placed it beside Han Zhuolings feet.
When Han Zhuoling saw that, he instantly narrowed his eyes.
“You even have a pair of mens slippers prepared at home” Han Zhuolings voice had turned cold.
Shi Xiaoya did not sense anything wrong.
Why did Han Zhuoling suddenly sound a little displeased
She explained, “Sometimes, when I need help and cant solve it myself, Qin Zigou will come and help me, so I have a pair of mens slippers at home.”
