Chapter 590: Why Don’t You Try Buying Him a Present?
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Gu Mian dragged Su Qianxun to a department store. Su Qianxun stared at her with a confused expression and asked, “What are we doing here?”
“Didn’t you say Long Sijue would be unhappy no matter what you did? Why don’t you try buying him a present?” Gu Mian said excitedly.
“Ah? Give him a present? But there’s no special occasion recently. It would be weird to give him a gift.”
“Who told you you can only give someone a present on special occasions? You can buy people gifts to make them happy.” Gu Mian could tell what was going on with her. Whenever Long Sijue was upset, Su Qianxun would feel down as well.
Su Qianxun mused in silence.
“Isn’t it going to be Chinese New Year soon? Just think of it as a Chinese New Year’s gift.” Gu Mian saw that she was still hesitant and dragged her friend into the department store.
The two young women walked around in the department store for a while. Su Qianxun did not know what to give Long Sijue. In the end, Gu Mian suggested a belt.
Su Qianxun was startled at first. She always felt that it was a suggestive gesture for women to give men belts as presents. But when she imagined Long Sijue putting on the belt that she gave him, she felt warmth stirring in her chest.
Once they had decided what to buy, the young woman went upstairs to shop for a belt.
On the first floor, at a custom jewelry store, Xia Chuxi spotted Su Qianxun and Gu Mian from afar. He suddenly felt a tightness in his chest, as if he was suffocating.
He and Qiao Yiren had already set the date for their wedding. It would be half a month from now.
“Chuxi, look at this ring. Does it look nice? Isn’t the diamond a little small?”
Qiao Yiren stared at the ring on her finger and was quite dissatisfied. She raised her head to look at him and found Xia Chuxi staring into the distance. She looked in the direction that he was looking in and saw Su Qianxun and Gu Mian.
Quao Yiren tugged at Xia Chuxi with force and he finally snapped out of his reverie. He asked, “What is it?”
“Look at the ring. Does it look nice?” Qiao Yiren extended her hand.
“But I don’t think so.”
“If that’s the case, pick another one.” Xi Chuxi felt rather troubled and frustrated.
“What’s going on?”
Lately, to make sure that her daughter would not act up and cause any more trouble, Su Manni followed and watched her every day. Now she only wished that her daughter and Xia Chuxi would get married without further trouble.
Mrs. Xia and Xia Xinruo came with her as well. They and Su Manni were just looking at other jewelry a moment ago. Now they were walking towards Qiao Yiren and Xia Chuxi.
“Nothing. I just think that the diamond is too small.”
Deep down, Qiao Yiren was awfully angry. ‘That sl*t Su Qianxun keeps Long Sijue to herself while trying to seduce Xia Chuxi. She is definitely doing this on purpose just to piss me off!
“If you think it’s small, pick a bigger one. Getting married is a major life event. You should pick a ring you really like,” Su Manni said.
“Yeah, Yiren. Let’s look at the other ones.” Mrs. Xia adored Qiao Yiren very much.
Qiao Yiren took a glance at Xia Chuxi and noticed that he was standing in a corner absentmindedly. She felt rather bitter.
Su Qianxun and Gu Mian arrived on the upper floor where the department store sold men’s apparel. Then they started looking for a belt for Long Sijue. However, they had walked around the entire floor and still did not find a belt they liked.
When she walked past a showcase, Su Qianxun’s eyes lit up. The belt on a mannequin in the showcase had drawn her attention.
She immediately tugged at Gu Mian, who was still glancing around. “Look at that!”
Gu Mian looked in the direction that Su Qianxun was looking in and spotted the belt as well. “Not bad. That one will do.”
Even though Su Qianxun thought that this belt was quite expensive, when she imagined how Long Sijie looked like with the belt around his waist, she thought the price was worth it.
Su Qianxun only had enough for half the price of the belt. She had to borrow some money from Gu Mian to make up for the rest. But fortunate for her, her pay from the advertisement project was very high. Once she received the pay, she could pay Mian Mian back.
The two young women left the men’s apparel store and planned to take the elevator downstairs. Su Qianxun suddenly sensed that someone had snatched the shopping bag from her hand with force.
