br>Chen Ying takes a closer look at Mi Xi.
She seems to be walking unnaturally.
Is it the shoes? 

After getting out of the elevator, he observes for a while before stopping Mi Xi.
“Are the shoes too big?”

“Not bad.”

This answer makes Chen Ying’s face twitch.
Big is big, not big is not big’ What the hell is ‘not bad’? He squats down and presses the tip of Mi Xi’s shoe, and there is a small empty space that is too big for her foot. 

“Let’s make do with it for now, and I’ll buy you another pair later,” he says.
He stands up and finds something wrong again.
She is still wearing the same clothes that Su Xiaopei prepared for her yesterday, but she zipped the clothes to the top, and the collar is turned up high.
She’s wrapped up tight.

Chen Ying doesn’t think much about it and reaches out to help her pull down the zipper a little and tidy up her clothes, but she pinches his palm as soon as it touches her neckline.

Chen Ying almost cries out in pain.

Mi Xi quickly shakes off his hand and takes a step back.
Chen Ying holds his palm, feeling angry and anxious, but not knowing if he should really be angry or anxious.
This little girl is so fucking fast, she attacked without seeing what was going on first. 

He looks at her.
Well, maybe she felt she was attacked.

 “Your clothes,” Chen Ying says with gritted teeth.
His hand really hurts.
He points to her neckline, “Don’t pull it so high, it’s ugly.”

Mi Xi covers her neckline and ignores him. 

This attitude! Chen Ying is upset.
He turns his back and strides forward, walks a few steps and looks back: Mi Xi was still following him.
He continues to walk, stops suddenly after walking for a while, turns around again and says to her seriously, “First, I am a gentleman.
Second, if I want to play a hooligan, I will not attack a minor like you.
Most girls look forward to playing with me, but I am not that kind of person.
Third, if you eat what I have, live where I live, and use what is mine, you must have a minimum of respect for me, and I will get angry if you get rough on me.”

Mi Xi blinks but says nothing.

“Do you understand?”

Mi Xi nods.
But that expression makes Chen Ying feel that she must have done it only because she thinks she should do it.

Chen Ying turns around and strides forward. 

Damn it! He is not a good man like in the legends, he really is not.
Just as he’s sulking, he suddenly sees an office worker walking in front of them in a short skirt suit with a very low neckline.
Chen Ying stops, and when Mi Xi draws near, he points to the short-skirted girl with his chin, “Look at her.

He means to say that everyone here wears it like this, and it’s okay if the neck is exposed, he really didn’t want to take advantage of her, he was wronged!

Mi Xi purses her lips, blinks, but keeps silent.

At this time, an old man walks up to them, with a yellowed vest, worn beach shorts, and a pair of slippers that could come off quickly.
Mi Xi looks at the old man, then at Chen Ying’s well-dressed shirt, trousers, and shiny leather shoes.
After looking, she doesn’t say anything, just moves on.

Chen Ying is stunned for a moment; okay, she dares to talk back with her eyes.

Just because the old man dresses like this doesn’t mean he wants to dress like this, okay? It doesn’t mean that it’s okay for her to make herself into a wrapped steamed bun so that she looks ugly, okay? 

Also, why doesn’t she pay attention to indecent behavior but instead overlooks it now, isn’t she an ancient person? The old man is showing half of his body, how could she have the nerve to look at him so brazenly?

Mi Xi in front walks slowly, with her hands behind her back, looking around and around.
Chen Ying doesn’t know if it’s due to her own psychology, he just feels that her walking posture and her demeanor doesn’t fit the world at all.

Mi Xi walks ahead for a while, stops, and looks back at him. 

Chen Ying’s heart softens again, and he takes a few steps to catch up.
If he teaches her slowly, then she would understand.
She is looking for a marriage here, and she only has three years, he remembers.

Chen Ying takes Mi Xi to the ‘Dim Sum Place’ not far from his community.
It is open 24 hours and is very famous.
Xiaolongbao, porridge, and siu mai are the main products.
There are all kinds of dim sum, noodles, and side dishes.
The price is not cheap, but customer flow is still quite good.

Mi Xi enters with a curious look on her face, and keeps on looking at the posters of the restaurant’s dishes.
“It’s very beautiful,” she says to him.

Chen Ying almost trips.
She praised ‘very beautiful’ to the large posters of the  xiaolongbao.
What kind of rhetorical method is this?

Looking around, fortunately, there is no one there.
It’s still too embarrassing, so he quickly drags her to sit at a table.

After taking the menu, Miss Mi Xi’s attention is grabbed again.
Before she can repeat the praise ‘very beautiful’, Chen Ying quickly orders a meal for her, a bowl of porridge and a basket of ‘very beautiful’ steamed buns.
He himself had the same.

The waiter who took the order left, and Chen Ying hurriedly whispers, “Praise the buns as ‘delicious’, or they ‘look delicious’, not ‘beautiful’.” 

Mi Xi also lowers her voice and whispers, “The painting is really, seriously good.”

Chen Ying’s face darkens immediately.
Ahh, so she was praising the restaurant’s poster for its beauty, not the steamed buns.
But praising the poster of xiaolongbao as ‘beautiful’ is still embarrassing!



1 Mi Xi’s ‘我晓得’ and Chen Ying’s ‘我知道’—he corrects her old school phrasing here.
