Chapter 141: I have that today
“Ha! That’s what I said. Big brother is a loyal person. How will he do bad things behind your back?” Zhang Bing noticed the mood had relaxed and he interrupted.
Yang Ming and Chen Mengyan felt a chill as they heard it. This fellow jumped on the bandwagon!
Zhang Bing parked his car in the free parking lot in front of the Song Jiang Xinmate Supermarket entrance. Even though Zhang Bing had poor driving skills, a security guard directed him and he managed to park the car smoothly.
The three of them pushed the shopping cart and started shopping fanatically.
This fellow, Zhang Bing, was a carnivore. His gaze fixed on “Spicy BBQ Meat” and canned food. On the other hand, Yang Ming accompanied Chen Mengyan and strolled around the preserved fruit, apricot, and seeds.
“Let’s buy this. It should taste better.” Yang Ming pointed at the plums they ate during the movie.
“En, I also feel this will taste good.” Chen Mengyan said while she put two packets of it into the shopping cart.
Another couple who was shopping passed by them. They noticed Chen Mengyan buy two packets of plums, so they couldn’t help but ask, “Is the plum tasty?”
“Not bad. Both of us like it.” Chen Mengyan nodded. She looked at Yang Ming as she spoke.
“Darling, should we buy some?” The girl was swayed by Chen Mengyan.
“You should only buy your portion. I don’t like to eat this.” The boy said in an awkward tone.
“Hmph, you should look at this other couple who has a similar taste in food. Look at you! You don’t like my favorite food. How can we go through our days in future?” The girl was slightly agitated.
“But, you should know that I don’t like sour food…” The boy said helplessly, “Alright then. I will eat two pieces of it!”
“That’s better.” The girl happily nodded her head. She took two packs of plum and put it into the shopping cart.
Yang Ming and Chen Mengyan smiled at each other. Being praised as the “ideal couple” incited a warm feeling in them.
“Both of you are really compatible.” The girl looked at the flirtatious gaze between Yang Ming and Chen Mengyan with envy.
Yes, the silent agreement between a couple was the utmost importance in a relationship. The girl felt the sense of cohesiveness was lacking, so she couldn’t help but shake her head in helplessness.
Since Chen Mengyan was primarily the one who did the shopping, it was she who pushed the shopping cart most of the time. As time passed by, there were more and more items in the shopping cart which made it difficult for her to push it alone.
The shopping cart in the supermarket was quite narrow. If two people pushed it side by side, it would be quite awkward. Therefore, Yang Ming stood behind Chen Mengyan as he pushed the shopping cart with two hands, as though Yang Ming was hugging Chen Mengyan from behind.
Chen Mengyan blushed because of their flirtatious act, especially because of the unavoidable physical contact when they walked together. Chen Mengyan’s hips bumped into Yang Ming’s bottom part. They both had an inexplicable arousal due to the rubbing of their private parts.
Men were creatures that thought with their bottom part, particularly when they met an incomparable belle. Particularly for Yang Ming with such intimate physical contact, there would always be a biological reaction.
Girls were different, however. They would only have libido with the man they liked. Or else, there would only be disgust.
As they approached another shelf, Chen Mengyan halted as she handpicked some fruit jelly. Yang Ming looked at the fair skin behind Chen Mengyan’s neck and started to behave in a naughty manner. He slowly withdrew one of his hands from the shopping cart and slowly climbed up Chen Mengyan’s abdomen. It was a flat belly with little to no sign of fat which was widely admired by the ladies.
As a result, Chen Mengyan started to breathe rapidly. Such intimate physical contact by the opposite gender on her body made Chen Mengyan unable to stay calm. However, there was no sign of protest from her. It was a strange feeling with traces of embarrassment and rejection.
Yang Ming’s hand seemed to have magic that was able to charm Chen Mengyan. However, she couldn’t shop at ease this way. So, she couldn’t help but pout playfully, “Okay, stop playing around.”
“I am not playing around.” Yang Ming denied it although his hands still slowly moved up on her body.
“Pak,” Chen Mengyan slapped on Yang Ming’s hand that was sneaking up to her breast. “We are in the supermarket. Did you think that we are in the cinema?”
Yes, Chen Mengyan thought about the cinema incident without realizing. Hence, she uttered it out. But, it seemed to be wrong even in the cinema! As such, she added on, “It is not allowed even in the cinema!”
“Heh.” Yang Ming found it amusing. “Then, where is it allowed?”
“Not in any place.” Chen Mengyan rolled her eyes at Yang Ming. She was angry deep inside. Won’t you consider where we are? Why are you making me saying those words?
Yang Ming indeed understood what was in Chen Mengyan’s mind. He smiled coquettishly at her.
The flirtatious atmosphere was wonderful. However, at this moment, Yang Ming’s phone rang.
“Stupid Zhang Bing, why are you distasteful?” Yang Ming mumbled as he picked up his phone. Once he looked at the incoming call, he was stunned. It was actually Lan Ling!
Chen Mengyan had a similar thought with Yang Ming as she hated Zhang Bing for interrupting. Hence, the innocent Zhang Bing suddenly felt a cold chill go up his spine for no reason.
“Hey, what’s the matter?” Yang Ming picked up the phone and spoke softly. Indeed, how could he not be guilty? He was having a date with Cheng Mengyan at that time!
“Yang Ming, I have that today. Can you help me out and buy some sanitary pads for me? I can’t leave the house because I put a lot of tissues on my bottom part. It hurts!” Lan Ling’s voice was transmitted from the phone. Yang Ming subconsciously put the phone closely by his ear.
“Uh… alright. I will deliver it to you after I have purchased it.” Yang Ming quickly replied and hung up the call.
“What’s the matter?” Chen Mengyan was in doubt with Yang Ming’s expression. Why was he so nervous when he spoke to Zhang Bing?
“No… nothing…” Yang Ming shook his head. “Zhang Bing asked where we were.”
Nokia’s unique ringtone, “Nokia Turn,” sounded again. Only this time it was the actual Zhang Bing!
Yang Ming had a cold sweat. Zhang Bing ya, what are you doing today? Are you trying to kill me? Yang Ming accepted the call, and Zhang Bing shouted at the top of his lung, “Brother, where are you? I will come over and look for you!”
“We are at the… section that sells candy…” Yang Ming said.
“Wait for me there. I am coming over.” Zhang Bing said.
The phone call was disconnected. Yang Ming looked at Chen Mengyan with traces of anxiety. This girl appeared with a sour face and glared at Yang Ming.
“Mengyan, what happen to you?” Yang Ming asked pretentiously.
“Why did you lie to me?” Chen Mengyan carried an expression of slight irritation.
“I… alright. Actually, the first call wasn’t from Zhang Bing!” Yang Ming twisted his brain in 180 bends to figure out how to pass through this ordeal in front of him.
“Then, who was the caller?” Chen Mengyan pushed away Yang Ming’s hand that was approaching her.
“Is… my little sister.” Yang Ming thought to himself secretly, My love affair is also considered as sister , right? Therefore, I didn’t lie to you. If you dug further in the future, then I will just tell you the truth.
“Sister?” Your sister called you. Why are you hiding it from me?” Chen Mengyan was suspicious.
“She was asking me for a favor. I didn’t tell you because it was embarrassing.” Yang Ming already thought of a strategy.
“What favor?” Chen Mengyan asked.
“She asked me to buy a few sanitary pads…” Yang Ming pretended to be embarrassed. In fact, he was thick-skinned.
“Ah? What? This was the case.” Chen Mengyan nodded his head. If it was just like what Yang Ming said, it was quite plausible. Since he is a man, the news about him buying sanitary pads for his sister might be embarrassing! Hence, Chen Mengyan was empathetic about it, “Why was it hard to mention? Didn’t you buy it with me last time…”
“Ha, that’s true. Then, could you advise me and see what we should buy?” In reality, Yang Ming didn’t know much about this. He couldn’t distinguish between those used during the day and those used at night.”
“Indeed. So a big man like you won’t know anything about this. You should have said so earlier. I won’t laugh at you.” Chen Mengyan nodded and said, “You should wait for Zhang Bing here. I will pick one for you.”
“Great…” With Chen Mengyan’s help, Yang Ming was indeed delighted. But, the first wife was buying sanitary pads for the second wife. Also, the first wife was entangled in the lie as well… If Chen Mengyan found out about it, wouldn’t the consequences be severe?
After Chen Mengyan left, Zhang Bing came over, “Brother, where is Chen Mengyan?”
“She left because she was agitated by you!” Yang Ming attempted to scare him.
“She left because she was agitated by me? What happened?” Zhang Bing was stunned.
“Lan Ling gave me a call just now. Mengyan asked about it and I said it was from you inquiring about our location.” Yang Ming said, “But your phone call came immediately after that.”
“Damn? Did you confess? It can’t be, right? How can you do that? Why didn’t you mention that I forgot about it and gave another call?” Zhang Bing said.
