HYIMA Chapter 11.2

It turns out that he prefers a black Audi—so low-key that it didn’t match his whole personality.

Anyway, Lin Jiayin feels that if a college student has a house and a car, that person’s family must be rich.

But it doesn’t matter. She didn’t like the money of Shen Zhan’s father.

She likes Shen Zhan. She doesn’t think about other unnecessary things like who his father is and how many billions his family makes.

The money is not hers. The two of them can make money together in the future.

Her thinking is that simple, but her head will inevitably be blank after thinking too much like that.

“Don’t be in a daze,” Shen Zhan opened the door, “get in the car.”

After returning to her consciousness, Lin Jiayin took the co-pilot.

Shen Zhan reminded her: “Wear a seatbelt.”

“Yeah.” Lin Jiayin lowered her head and fastened her seat belt.

After inserting it, Lin Jiayin looked up. She faced Shen Zhan’s eyes.

Shen Zhan’s eyelids were half drooping. Because the garage was dimly lit, his expression was unclear, but she could clearly see the corners of his mouth flattened and his brows were showing frustration.

“What?” Lin Jiayin asked.

Shen Zhan did not speak, lowered his head, and pulled out the seat belt she had just fastened. He inserted it in the right position.

Then he fastened his own seat belt.

“…”

She fastened her seat belt to the driver’s seat.

“Did you drink Sanlu1There was a scandal in China before wherein infant milk was added with melamine in order to pass the quality control test. The first company that was exposed to doing that is the Sanlu Group. There were lots of infants who became victims and were hospitalized because of the milk formula with melamine. milk powder when you were young?” Shen Zhan stepped on the accelerator and the car slowly slid forward.

Lin Jiayin shook her head.

“Had a high fever?”

Lin Jiayin said, “I’ve been in a great body since I was a child, and I basically don’t get sick.”

Her serious answer made Shen Zhan silent again.

After a while, Lin Jiayin, who had a slow thinking reflex, realized, “Are you asking if my brain was broken?”

“Probably.”

“What?”

“If you have a brain.”

Lin Jiayin curled her lips, looked at the street view outside the window, and then looked back.

She said to Shen Zhan, “It doesn’t matter, you just need to use your brain well.”

“…”

Shen Zhan looked at her quietly. Her eyebrows were curled, and her mouth was smiling.

Why is she still happy after being mocked?

He asked: “Aren’t you angry if other people say that?”

Lin Jiayin thought for a while and replied: “No.”

After a while, she added: “Unless it’s too much.”

Shen Zhan repeated: “Then what will you do if it’s too much?”

“I don’t know either.” Lin Jiayin was confused for a moment, “I know I am stupid, so I feel that I deserve to be scolded.”

“Won’t you be sad if you’re scolded?”

“Of course I will be sad.” Lin Jiayin smiled, “Anyway, if I’m not close to them, I’ll just give them a cold shoulder while sunbathing in the sun, laughing and eating.”

Shen Zhan didn’t speak.

After a while, Lin Jiayin suddenly said, “Don’t worry.”

Shen Zhan: “Where was I worried about?”

“Don’t worry that I will be angry.” Lin Jiayin said, “I won’t be angry or sad if you scold me to death.”

“…”

Lin Jiayin: “If there is someone as smart as you in the world, there will be someone as stupid as me.”

Lin Jiayin: “People should only care about what they care about, and be happy every day.”

Shen Zhan curled the corners of his lips. He didn’t expect that Lin Jiayin, who always seemed feeble-minded, would have profound thinking such as that.

Lin Jiayin: “My mom told that to me.”

“…”

After she spoke, Shen Zhan had no desire to speak anymore.

The car stopped in front of the pet shop. After buying the cat food, Shen Zhan walked out and went back to the car. When he opened the door, he paused.

There was no movement behind him. Shen Zhan turned his head.

Two claw machines were placed in front of the pet shop. Two elementary school students were playing to grab the dolls. Lin Jiayin stood behind them with an extremely serious expression. She was deeply fascinated.

Shen Zhan walked over silently and tapped her shoulder.

Lin Jiayin was stunned before turning around.

Shen Zhan: “How old are you this year?”

She didn’t know why he suddenly asked about her age. Lin Jiayin replied cleverly: “I’m nineteen now, and I’ll be twenty in a month.”

“So…” Shen Zhan’s gaze swept towards the claw machine.

Lin Jiayin answered him immediately: “I also want a doll!”

Her eyes seem to say, “win and give it to me.”

Shen Zhan walked to the pet shop and exchanged a 20 yuan bill for coins to be used as game currency.

“I want this.” Lin Jiayin pointed to the white rabbit at the bottom.

Shen Zhan asked: “You want me to catch it for you?”

Lin Jiayin nodded. Shen Zhan is very good no matter what he does—he must be able to grasp the doll with accuracy.

“That rabbit?” Shen Zhan asked.

Lin Jiayin said “Yes” for a while, then pointed again at the glass, “And this, the orange kitten.”

Shen Zhan: “What else?”

Lin Jiayin thought for a while. The claw machine is not easy to play with, so she said: “You can catch those two first, and I’ll think about it after you catch them.”

Lin Jiayin stood beside him, holding the glass window without blinking.

After watching for a while, the look of expectation on her face gradually disappeared.

A doll was never caught. More than a dozen coins were lost.

Lin Jiayin couldn’t hold it anymore, and tentatively asked, “Should I try it?”

Shen Zhan was silent.

“You still have a coin, right?” Lin Jiayin looked at his hand.

Shen Zhan: “Don’t catch it anymore. It only cheats children’s money.”

Lin Jiayin looked at his hand persistently.

“…”

Shen Zhan gave her the last remaining coin.

Lin Jiayin looked around the glass window for a while before inserting a coin.

She took a deep breath, aligned the position of the claw carefully, and pressed the button.

The iron claws descended slowly, grasped the white rabbit firmly, moved to the exit in a stable manner, and released it.

The whole process was extremely smooth.

It went so well that Shen Zhan pulled the corner of his mouth.

Lin Jiayin took out the doll, “It cheated you of money, but not my money.”

Shen Zhan didn’t speak, his mouth was flat.

“Don’t be uncomfortable.” Lin Jiayin stuffed the doll into his hand and said boldly: “I’ll give it to you!”
