Nie Zhen'er didn't know why Luan Qing Xiao would take care of herself in this way, but she could feel the kindness emanating from Luan Qing Xiao.
Smiling gratefully at Luan Qing Xiao, Nie Zhen’er carefully got into the luxury car in front of her.
This car seemed to be more expensive than the car her family drove when they hadn’t gone bankrupt.
Nie Zhen'er couldn't imagine how much money Luan Qing Xiao's family would have.
After getting in the car, Nie Zhen'er moved to the inside position and sat with her back straight.
She watched Luan Qing Xiao come in, closed the door and said to the driver, “Uncle Li, go to the mall first.
I need to take this little girl to buy some clothes.”
“Okay, Young Miss.” Uncle Li answered calmly.
After the car started, Luan Qing Xiao tilted her head to look at Nie Zhen'er.
Nie Zhen'er pressed against the left door tightly so that the two were separated by at least half a meter.
“Don't be nervous, do I look like a bad person?” Luan Qing Xiao asked frivolously.
Nie Zhen'er quickly shook her head, looking at her, “Qing Xiao… … It’s not like that, I know you’re a good person.” Originally, she wanted to be called ‘Qing Xiao Jie’, but suddenly remembered that Luan Qing Xiao just said she didn't like other people calling her Jie Jie since it makes her seem older.
So she quickly stopped the word “sister” that came to her lips.
“We’ll be living together for a period of time in the future.
If there’s no accident, this period will be pretty long.
Therefore… …” Luan Qing Xiao stretched out her delicate manicured nail finger and gently lifted Nie Zhen'er's chin, “…
… be more comfortable when talking to me.
Don’t be afraid of me, you also said I’m a good person, didn’t you?”
Nie Zhen'er's had only met Luan Qing Xiao.
Even if she wanted to listen to her and act more comfortably, it would be difficult to show it.
After all, in the previous eighteen years of life, Luan Qing Xiao and her had never known each other.
There had been no foundation of a relationship between them.
As Nie Zhen'er had no idea what kind of person Luan Qing Xiao was, it was difficult for her to convince herself to fully trust Luan Qing Xiao.
Even Ao Tu Song, whom she had known since childhood, would not dare to take her in for various reasons.
Nie Zhen'er didn’t dare to guess how long Luan Qing Xiao's momentary kindness would last.
“I’ll work hard.” Nie Zhen'er tugged her clothes with her fingers.
After teasing Nie Zhen'er a little, she stopped talking.
On the side, Nie Zhen'er secretly let out a sigh of relief.
She was truly bad at communicating with strangers.
Soon, Uncle Li drove the car to the largest shopping mall in An City.
When Luan Qing Xiao and Nie Zhen'er opened the door and got off, Nie Zhen'er stared at the grand shopping mall in front of her in surprise.
Luan Qing Xiao announced, “Let's head in and buy you some clothes.”
As Luan Qing Xiao spoke, she began to walk into the mall.
Nie Zhen'er hurried over and pulled her arm, “Qing Xiao, I can tell it’ll be extremely expensive from the decoration here.
How about we change a place? I think the clothes in the surrounding small shops are good enough.” Before the family went bankrupt, Nie Zhen’er often visited such malls with her mother to shop and has a general understanding of the prices of goods in these malls.
In her current state, she couldn't even afford a hairpin inside.
If she went in with Luan Qing Xiao, wouldn’t she be ashamed to death?
Luan Qing Xiao turned around and smiled, “Don't worry, you don't need to spend money.”
After speaking, she pulled Nie Zhen'er's hand from her arm.
How could Nie Zhen'er dare to let her go? She quickly grabbed her again and gulped nervously, “Qing Xiao, I’ve done nothing to deserve this.
I'm already extremely grateful that you can provide me with a place to live.
If you also buy me clothes, I really can’t afford it.”
“To me, it’s just a small amount of money.
I want to spend it on you, you only have to accept it.”
Nie Zhen'er still wanted to say something when Luan Qing Xiao placed her index finger on her pink lips and slightly lowered her head, her eyes flashing, “You don’t know how much your Big Brother Ao cost me.
It’s just a few clothes.
Compared to the money I spent on him, this will be a drop in the bucket.”
From the corner of Nie Zhen'er's eyes, she noticed that because of her dispute with Luan Qing Xiao, many people around them were pointing at them.
She couldn't let Luan Qing Xiao, who helped herself, get embarrassed with her, so she nodded helplessly.
Internally, she thought about writing down the price of the clothes later on and then paying it back to Luan Qing Xiao when she had the ability.
Although the money for the few clothes will most likely be her salary for the next few years.
Under Nie Zhen'er's compromise, the two finally entered the mall.
Luan Qing Xiao directly brought Nie Zhen'er to a few shops that she thought would fit her temperament.
Nie Zhen'er didn't even need to pick the clothes out.
With a sweep of her eyes, she picked a few pieces for the saleswoman behind her to find Nie Zhen'er's size.
Nie Zhen'er followed Luan Qing Xiao into several women's clothing stores that seemed very expensive just at first sight.
After trying two or three sets of clothes, her heart was already bleeding.
For these two or three sets of clothes, the total price couldn’t be less than 50,000 yuan.
Moreover, these fabrics were the type that can’t be worn too often.
Nie Zhen'er wanted to express that she didn't need such flashy clothes, but Luan Qing Xiao didn't give her a chance to speak at all.
Nie Zhen'er could only watch Luan Qing Xiao give the card to the saleswoman to swipe.
Timidly standing on the side, she comforted herself in her heart: It doesn't matter, it's just 50,000 yuan.
It’s not like she can’t make 50,000 yuan in two or three years, right?
Once done buying the clothes, Nie Zhen'er thought it was over and could follow Luan Qing Xiao home.
Who knew that Luan Qing Xiao would take her hand and go into a shoe store?
When Nie Zhen'er tried the shoes, her heart continued to bleed.
After buying the shoes, they went to buy pajamas.
Then after buying the pajamas, they went to buy skin care products.
By now, Nie Zhen'er gave up resisting and numbly watched Luan Qing Xiao buy, buy buy.
At worst, she’ll just work for Luan Qing Xiao her entire life.
Nie Zhen'er thought.
If Luan Qing Xiao knew what Nie Zhen'er was thinking, Luan Qing Xiao might just buy all the clothes that Nie Zhen'er could wear in the mall, so that Nie Zhen'er will work for her not only in this life, but in the next life and the following one, never leaving her.
It's a pity that Luan Qing Xiao couldn’t listen to Nie Zhen'er's internal monologue.
After the two of them exited the mall, Nie Zhen'er’s arms were filled with bags and the bags almost drowned her thin body.
Luan Qing Xiao wanted to help her take some, but she shook her head and refused, insisting on taking it all herself.
She should let her carry this 200,000 yuans ‘debt’ so that she can more deeply remember how much money she owes.
Uncle Li was already outside, waiting for them.
Nie Zhen'er got into the car with an extremely heavy step.
“What is Zhen'er thinking? Why do I feel that you’re not very happy?” Luan Qing Xiao asked.
Nie Zhen'er looked at Luan Qing Xiao in a daze and replied bitterly, “I'm fine.” It's only a debt of 200,000 yuan, she’ll definitely be able to pay it back within ten years.
She was only eighteen now.
Ten years later, she’ll still be twenty-eight.
It won’t be too late to start all over again then.
Nie Zhen'er comforted herself, trying to soothe her traumatized heart to stop at least from bleeding anymore.
Luan Qing Xiao furrowed her brows while looking at her, “No, you definitely have something going on.”
Nie Zhen'er forced a grin on, “I just suddenly remembered my parents… …”
As Nie Zhen'er spoke, the thoughts of her parents and the grievances in her heart promptly came to mind.
Her eyes were instantly filled with tears, but she stubbornly pressed her lips tightly together and widened her eyes wide to prevent the tears from falling.
Tears were the weapon of the weak.
She wanted to be a strong person, so she must not cry, must not cry no matter what.
A shallow sigh traveled to Nie Zhen'er's ear as someone gently pried out her clenched hand, and then put her hands in front of her tearful eyes.
“Your eyes are blocked by your own hands, now no one can see.”
Nie Zhen'er heard Luan Qing Xiao speaking to her in a gentle voice.
In the darkness in front of her eyes, she couldn't help but blink her eyes, wetting the palms of her hands with tears.
However, like Luan Qing Xiao said, she covered her cowardice and could cry as much as she wanted in her own corner.
No one will see her tears.
While waiting at a traffic light, Uncle Li saw the expression on Luan Qing Xiao's face in the rear-view mirror.
Her eyes were full of compassion and… … affection?
Uncle Li thought he saw wrong.
He quickly closed his eyes and opened them again.
In the end, the affection in Luan Qing Xiao's eyes didn’t disappear, but deepened instead.
Uncle Li: “…
What was going on? ? ?
If he remembers correctly, Young Miss had just met this girl who was covering her eyes and crying.
How did she suddenly fall in love?
Could it be that she liked crying girls?
The problem was that the girls who were scolded into crying by Luan Qing Xiao before were too many to count.
He has never seen such tender affection in Luan Qing Xiao's eyes.
Besides, isn't the person Young Miss loves her current fiancé, Ao Tu Song? Why did she suddenly shift her affection to the girl she took from Ao Tu Song?
When the red light turned green, Uncle Li still couldn't figure out the reason.
He continued driving, worried.
Nie Zhen'er didn't indulge herself.
She only blinked the tears out of her eyes before she stopped crying any more.
She turned to face the car window.
As she wiped the tears off her face with her sleeves, she felt her heavy heart lighten a little.
【Ding! The female lead's current pain value has dropped to 95%! 】
Ever since Nie Zhen'er's parents encountered the accident, she was afraid she would break down and never dared to cry.
Although the tears just now weren't much, it let some of the pain in her heart flow away.
Things like pain were better to be vented out rather than to be suppressed inside.
