Chapter 95 - "I left there before that was never my home.
My home is here!" (1)
Tong Xuelu frowned and looked up at the man in front of her.
She saw standing in front of her a tall and well-built man with a shaved head.
He had small eyes and a big nose, and his features did not mesh well together.
But that was not the point.
The point was that he looked somewhat familiar, but she couldn’t put her finger on it right away.
You got the wrong person.”
She was about to walk around him after she had said that.
Xiao Chengping stopped her, “No way I have gotten the wrong person.
It’s you, Tong Xuelu!”
Tong Xuelu finally studied him carefully and recalled who he was.
He was the son of the head of the General Logistics Department.
He was 4 years older than the original owner and grew up with her in the compound.
Xiao Chengping had been a tall one since he was a child and was a bully in the compound.
He loved bullying other children in the compound.
The original owner was one of his worst victims, which was why she would start to cry whenever she saw him.
Hence the nickname Cry Baby.
Xiao Chengping joined the military a few years ago and had not been back the last couple of years.
He looked much more grown up now.
That, on top of the fact that the original owner only had her eyes on Fang Wenyuan, was the reason that Tong Xuelu didn’t recognize him right away.
Seeing that she didn’t say anything, Xiao Chengping glared at her with his beady little eyes and said, “Why aren’t you saying anything Don’t tell me you have forgotten about me already!”
“Nope! Not at all.
And, good dogs don’t block the road.
Move, or I report to the troop that you are being a hooligan.”
Having said that, Tong Xuelu ignored him and walked around him.
Xiao Chengping looked like he had a toothache.
“You cry baby.
You said you don’t remember who I am.
Then how do you know that I’ve joined the troop Wow, I would never have guessed that the little cry baby had turned into a little spicy pepper in just two years!”
The man next to him said, “Cousin, who’s that Why is she so mean She called you a dog.
Do you want me to go and teach her a lesson”
Xiao Chengping gave him a glare.
“Teach her what lesson Are you some sort of a bandit”
Cousin, “ ”
Xiao Chengping hrumped and said, “Keep in mind that you are a man, and you must be more forgiving.
Aren’t you ashamed to be petty like a woman
Alright, he should have just kept his mouth shut!
Pretend that I’ve nothing.
Whatever floats your boat!
Xiao Chengping glanced over inside and suddenly tsked and said, “Odd.
What is Cry Baby doing here at the Housing Management Office Is she in the market to buy a place”
Cousin, “Cousin, would you like me to go and ask around stealthily”
Xiao Chengping raised his brows, “Why do we need to ask around stealthily What is in that head of yours all the time We must be forthcoming as human beings and not be sneaky all the time!”
He is going to STOP! TALKING! NOW! !
One more word and he’s a dog! ! !
After walking inside the Housing Management Office, Tong Xuelu told the office worker the purpose of her visit.
The administrative worker was a woman around 27 ~ 28 years old and her eyes scanned over Tong Xuelu’s fair face.
Her look was arrogant and cold, “There’s no places for rent.
There are some for sale.
You got the money ready”
Tong Xuelu fished out a couple pieces of White Rabbit milk candies and handed them over to her.
Smiling, she said, “Little Sister, it’s so nice that you can have such a nice job at such a young age!”
Zou Fangyun was taken aback a little then she said shyly, “What are you talking about My son is already 7~8 years old.
Why would you address me as little sister.”
Tong Xuelu looked very surprised.
“No way! Your skin is so fair and it glows.
I thought you were a year or two younger than me.
How are you able to maintain it so nice”
Zou Fangyun was both shy and prideful, “What maintaining If I must say, I have been very fair looking since I was a child.
Nobody believes that I have a son his age when I am out and about!”
Tong Xuelu said sincerely, “I wouldn’t believe that either! Plus, I’ve always heard that women age faster after having children, but you don’t look like someone with a child at all!”
Zou Fangyun stroked her own face and had a big smile on her face.
“Oh right, what kind of a place did you say you want to buy You don’t look that old.
How come you are here by yourself”
Tong Xue pinched her lips shut and her eyes reddened.
“I don’t want to have to come alone either but my parents both passed away a few months ago and now I am the oldest in the house.
My youngest sister is just 3 years old.
You see I must shoulder the entire family.”
