Chapter 569: You Are Pretty and Your Voice is Pleasant

Nian Xi couldn’t help but ask, “How can you hear me talking, then?”
Jiang Yuning pressed his lips together, then wrote—You are pretty, and your voice is pleasant. After showing the note to Nian Xi, he stared straight into her eyes.
Nian Xi was reminded of the line which was famous on the internet recently—Oh my God, the teenage girl in my heart is awake! She scratched her own scalp awkwardly, then responded, “I’m going to sleep.”
Jiang Yuning followed her to the door. Nian Xi directly turned back and closed the door for him.
Nian Junting went back upstairs sullenly. Luosang had just taken a shower. Seeing him pulling a long face, she asked, “Who made you unhappy?”
A few cold words escaped Nian Junting’s thin lips, “Nian Xi’s boyfriend.”
“Is Ji Chuan here?”
“No, it’s a strange man. I’ve never seen him before.” Nian Junting narrowed his eyes and said, “He’s so impolite. I talked to him, but he ignored me. He didn’t even look at me.”
Luosang paused for a second, then said, “Stop joking. We heard her talking about Ji Chuan just a couple of hours ago. It sounds that they’re about to get back together.”
“I’m serious.” Nian Junting told her how Nian Xi had met Jiang Yuning that night. “I bet he planned all this, because he likes Nian Xi. He’s pursuing her in this way. I know my sister very well. Sometimes, she can be so dumb that I don’t even like her. But after all, she and I share the same blood. She’s surely much more outstanding than ordinary women, so it’s normal for her to have suitors.”
“I doubt that.” Luosang thought for a moment, then said, “Maybe that guy is autistic or has some problem with interpersonal communication. I’ve read some psychology books about those kinds of issues.”
“Yeah.” Nian Junting frowned. “Then I’ll never let Nian Xi be with him.”
Luosang rolled her eyes. “He didn’t say that he’s pursuing Nian Xi, did he?”
“Nian Xi is so pretty. Of course he’s pursuing her,” said Nian Junting affirmatively.
“I’m gonna sleep.” Luosang decided not to argue with him. Instead, she pulled up the blanket to cover herself.
Nian Junting quickly got into bed, held her, and said, “I’m serious. He’s ugly, but more importantly, he has this awful presence.”
“Mm, hm.” Luosang nodded. She was so sleepy.
The next day, they freshened up and went downstairs together. Nian Xi was already sitting behind the dinner table listlessly, her head resting on her palms. She had a pair of dark circles under her eyes.
“Isn’t your guest up yet?” Luosang asked.
“He’s here.” Nian Xi continued, pointing behind Luosang with her chin, “He’s up. He’s freshening up in the bathroom.”
Luosang turned back to see a tall, slim man. His face was as delicate as a piece of china, and his eyes were as clear as a pool of water. She was a little stunned. Ugly? Awful presence? Nian Junting’s words are indeed not trustworthy, she thought.
“Why are you looking at him? He’s so ugly. There’s nothing to look at.” Nian Junting turned her face back as she had stared at Jiang Yuning for more than three seconds.
“He is extremely handsome, okay?” Luosang couldn’t help but say so.
Nian Junting covered his forehead with a hand. “You think so because you have poor taste. After all, you even fell for Yi Jingxi.”
Luosang turned her head away and saw Jiang Yuning quietly sit beside Nian Xi. His thick and curling eyelashes still had tiny water drops on them. Those water drops even made Luosang’s eyes sparkle. He was so pretty.
Nian Junting got angry. He glared at Nian Xi and said, “When are you gonna take him away?”
“At least let me finish my breakfast.” Nian Xi couldn’t sleep last night, so she felt as if her brain was swelling now.
