Chapter 47 — This Male Lead Is a Bit Crazy (47)
Embarrassment colored the woman’s face. Even a flower was too expensive for her. Although her husband earned a lot of points every month using his powers, they lived on those earnings and could not afford luxuries.
In the end, however, the woman could not refuse the pleading look in her daughter’s eyes. Biting her lip, she bought a lily.
Happy to have completed her first business of the day, the old shop-owner smiled. When she saw the new customers arrive, she quickly asked, “Boy, is there a flower you want to buy?”
It was Huo Junhan and Shen Mubai who stood in front of her stall. The old lady saw their intertwined hands, and, her eyes carrying a hint of a smile, she looked at Huo Junhan and said, “You must be in a very good relationship.”
Shen Mubai’s hand was held so tightly she couldn’t break out of his grasp no matter how much she tried. Shen Mubai tried to clear up the misunderstanding after hearing the old lady. “We’re not…”
The old lady interrupted her and said with a smile. “Ah, yes. Your children will be really beautiful.”
Shen Mubai: “…”
Even if it was a misunderstanding, knowing this zombie man next to her, he wouldn’t care. Each time Shen Mubai tried to explain, she was rejected by the old lady.
“Are they all blind? From what angle are we a couple? And with this man?” She complained to the system.
System: “Let go of his hand first.”
Shen Mubai: “Can’t you see he’s holding on to me? System, I think this male lead is very problematic.”
The system remained silent, but Shen Mubai continued, “System, what the hell is wrong with him?”
System: “The task progress is already 70 percent complete. You’re so close to leaving, isn’t it normal for him to keep you close?”
Shen Mubai pondered over the system’s words and thought that is was reasonable, but she had a nagging feeling that there was more to it.
Looking down at Shen Mubai, Huo Junhan turned to the lady and pointed at the daisies. “Just that.”
The little daisies bloomed and swayed in the breeze. The gray-haired lady followed his line of sight and reached for the flowers. She smiled and said, “How many do you want?”
Huo Junhan’s eyes did not even waver as he said, “All of them.”
The lady was beyond excited and could hardly contain her joy. Her smile reached the corner of her eyes as she exclaimed, “Well, I’ll wrap them all up.”
“No need.” His voice was cold as he took the flowers from her hands. He turned around and handed them to the girl next to him. “Take it.”
Shen Mubai was stunned and unconsciously accepted the flowers.
Huo Junhan turned to the shopkeeper and after asking about the price, paid and left.
The little girl who was still nearby, saw the whole scene and felt a bit envious. She pulled on the sleeves of her mother and asked, “Does that big brother like that younger sister? Otherwise, why else would he buy such an expensive bouquet of flowers?
The woman looked startled but curled her lips. “Whether or not he likes the lady is not determined by what he bought her or the price of the items.”
The little girl raised her head, a bit puzzled, and asked, “What do you mean?”
The woman simply replied, “What matters is how much interest he shows in her.”
