Sweet Illicit Love and Sexual Coincidences - Chapter 19.2
Chapter 19 Part 2
Su Nanxing had not returned to her parents house for more than a month. Mother Su scolded her the entire time. “Why don’t you come home more often?”
Su Nanxing explained that she had hurt her foot and it was inconvenient for her to walk. Mother Su asked her with distress, “Why didn’t you tell me so I can take care of you?” Then, she put a bunch of food in her bowl and said, “Eat more ribs for the calcium.”
Father Su also gave some food to Su Nanxing and said, “Let’s warm up a cup of milk for Xingxing later. Milk has the best calcium.”
Mother Su agreed and went back to the kitchen to stir-fry the last dish. Su Nanxing really liked the home-style stir fried tofu1 Mother Su made and ate it with rice.
Father Su also liked eating this dish, especially when it was still hot. It was scalding hot when he ate it, but he felt warm and comfortable as it went down.
It’s just that he ate it too fast and had to cough.
When Su Nanxing saw him coughing, she quickly poured him a glass of water and said, “Why are you always coughing? Are you sick? If you’re sick, you have to go to the hospital. Don’t hold off on going.”
Su Nanxing urged him again and he put more food in her bowl. “Eat more, I’ll be fine.” Su Nanxing could only lower her head and eat. She could not mention it to him again.
Mother Su joined them after she finished cooking. As they ate, her mother talked about their family and her younger uncle and aunt worrying about her cousin’s marriage. Su Nanxing’s mother said to her, “Your father and I were thinking, we will not be worried like your uncle’s family. We worked hard to raise you, our daughter, so it’s only natural for you to be by our side. Your father and I will not force you.”
Su Nanxing said, “Right now I just want to work hard. Since I have been promoted to industry director, I will have more performance bonuses than before, and I want to earn more money.” Why did she want to make more money? To pay off her family’s debts, of course.
Although she didn’t say it, didn’t her family already know?
Father Su took a sip of alcohol and said, “Xingxing, it has been hard for you all these years.”
Su Nanxing lowered her head and continued eating. She didn’t want to show her eyes tearing up.
“I’m used to it. When there’s pressure, there’s motivation.”
Mother Su said, “Your father and I just want you to be happy.”
Su Nanxing let out a “mhm” and buried herself in the meal. She spent that weekend with her parents. It was a rare occasion and she was not suddenly called to work overtime.
Su Nanxing returned to the apartment she rented with Miao Mengmeng on Sunday evening. Miao Mengmeng was rushing to draw a picture at home. When she saw Su Nanxing come back, she couldn’t help but show it off. “Nanxing, look, I have a few more fans on bilibili. There was also a comment that praised me for being real and not fake! Hahaha!”
Miao Mengmeng held the bowl of salad she made and said, “It looks better when you make it. I just sent my fans a video of my dinner, and there was a comment saying that I was eating weeds.”
She added, “Next time you make a salad, I’ll make a video of you and show them!”
Su Nanxing said, “It doesn’t matter what it looks like. The important thing is that you keep going. So, run with me tomorrow morning.”
Miao Mengmeng said “oh” and then didn’t get up the next morning when Su Nanxing called her name. Miao Mengmeng was drowsy and said, “I was up drawing until two o’clock last night, so I won’t go running today…”
Upon hearing this, Su Nanxing felt bad for Miao Mengmeng. Thus, she quietly closed her door and went for a run.
When she ran to the water pavilion, she suddenly thought, will I see Zhou Yi today?
After she reached the water pavilion, she didn’t see the familiar figure. Su Nanxing did not buy water and ran on without stopping.
It suddenly occurred to her that it would be better to run like this.
She focused her thoughts on constantly running forward, feeling the strength of her lower body. Su Nanxing smiled to herself. Today is another day to work hard!
Suddenly, her ponytail was pulled, and she heard a voice from above her. The smell of smoke and mint that she was familiar with appeared.
“I was calling you from back there, but you didn’t hear me.”
As she listened to him, he said, “Today, you have to run six kilometers. Don’t be lazy.”
Su Nanxing heard herself giggle and say, “Okay.”
Monday mornings were busy, but it still didn’t stop the older sisters in the department from gossiping.
Su Nanxing went on a business trip last Thursday and Friday, and older Sister Qian had a pile of gossip to tell her. The moment Huang Xinran left the office, older sister Qian said, “Oh hey, Xiao Su, let me tell you about last Wednesday night. Someone saw Xiao Huang leaving in our Manager Zhou’s car.”
Su Nanxing asked, “Didn’t she say before that her family is a family friend of Manager Zhou’s family? And that their family’s elders have known each other for a long time? Huang Xinran’s father is also Manager Zhou’s father’s boss, isn’t it normal for Manager Zhou to take care of her?”
Older Sister Qian said dramatically, “Xiao Huang’s conditions are very good! Li Wan can not compete with her.”
She added, “After Li Wan knew about this, she didn’t pay much attention to Xiao Huang for two days.”
Su Nanxing thought, Li Wan doesn’t want to talk to Huang Xinran anymore, but she will still do it with a smiling face. Who made Huang Xinran have a father who is a general manager?
Older Sister Qian still shared some gossip about Huang Xinran, and then began to say what she really wanted to tell Su Nanxing. “Oh, Xiao Su, I heard that the group company has approved a few regular positions at our provincial company.”
“If you are interested in becoming a regular worker, you can look for help from a connection.”
What could Su Nanxing say? She had neither money nor a network. Where could she get the right connections?
- Heat is a concept in traditional Chinese medicine. Too much heat means the body has too much yang in the body and can cause symptoms like fevers, ulcers, etc. Heat can come from eating food that contains this property like spicy food, fried food, or even chocolate.
- The tablets are supposed to clear away heat and chrysanthemum tea is used to help “cool” the heat
