COLD CEO AND ARROGANT WIFE, VOLUME 5 - Season 9 Episode 70
In the absence of Xiang Wai and Zhai Yanjun, Hyson and Huang Shuyi were
catching up which they hadn’t done in a while. Suddenly remembering
something, Huang Shuyi took out something from his pocket and gave it to
Hyson saying, “I asked for this peace talisman for your best friend. You bring it to her for me.”
Hyson looked at the talisman and then looked at Huang Shuyi, “Brother, she
isn’t a believer.”
“Neither are you,” said Huang Shuyi. “But you still have the Budha bead I gave
you. And you always keep it close to you as well.”
“You said it’ll protect me,” replied Hyson. “So, I wanted to see if that thing
really was that powerful.”
“It’s not the things that are powerful, it’s the belief,” said Huang Shuyi. “And
you didn’t keep it to test a theory. You kept it because it was my goodwill. And
you don’t like letting people down. Since that bead represented my sincerest
feelings, you took it very seriously.” He took a pause and added, “I don’t know
Raelle that well but I’m willing to believe she isn’t much different than you. It’s
not my talisman that she’ll accept. It’ll be my thoughts.”
Hyson took the talisman and nodded his head, “You’re right. She’ll definitely
accept your thoughts and she’ll appreciate it as well. Thank you for this!”
Huang Shuyi waved him off nonchalantly, “You already know I visit the temple
once a month. It was just during the routine visit that I asked for this.”
“I know. I know how pious you are. But I also know that your routine visits are
always on the last Saturday of the month. But this time, you actually went in
the middle of the month. Brother, I’m no fool. I know you specifically went there once you learned about Ellie’s accident.”
“She is after all your best friend,” said Huang Shuyi. “You said she is family.
This was all I could think about since Zhen Ge said we are not allowed to visit the hospital.”
Hyson smiled to himself but didn’t say anything. He put the talisman safely in
his pocket. He wasn’t really a believer but he had seen how devoted Huang
Shuyi had been in his life. During the last month of the week, he’d always eat
only vegetarian. In fact, his diet was often very bland. It didn’t mean he was
trying to be a monk, but it definitely held some meaning to Huang Shuyi. No, it definitely had a very important meaning to him.
Apart from his group members, not many people knew about Huang Shuyi’s
this interest. Definitely not his fans. He was pious and liked to keep a low
profile. But he was equally dazzling on the stage as well.
“Fai, do you think Zhen Ge is dating someone?”
Hyson coughed when he heard that question and raised his brows at Huang
Shuyi’s sudden question. “What? Where did that come from?”
Huang Shuyi shrugged, “I’m just asking casually.”
“He isn’t,” answered Hyson. “Just the other day he looked more heartbroken
seeing how his dog betrayed him. He is definitely too busy with his dog to think of a relationship.”
“Oh, he’s still raising Coco?” asked Huang Shuyi.
“You know his dog?” asked Hyson in return.
Huang Shuyi hummed, “I gave him Coco.”
“What? Why? How?”
“That’s actually a very interesting story,” said Huang Shuyi. “Coco was an
abandoned puppy that Wai found. You see, that girl has some kind of a spiritual connection with animals. Animals just love to be close to her. Coco was very injured at that time. She sent Coco to the vet and got it treated as well. But she couldn’t adopt Coco as well. Back then Coco was very insecure and wasn’t willing to be left at those adoption centers. Wai sent Coco to me. But I also didn’t plan on raising a dog so I mentioned it in passing to Zhen Ge who readily decided to adopt Coco on the spot.”
Hyson was gaping at this point and didn’t know what to say. “I didn’t know
there was such a story. I think Coco remembers Major. The other day, Coco looked so unwilling to let her go.”
“Well, animals are sensitive to smell. Even though Coco was small, Coco was
very insecure during that dark period. Who pulled it out of darkness, Coco will
definitely have some impression of that person.”
“You’re right,” agreed Hyson. He thought that whoever pulls you from your
darkness would always leave an everlasting impression on you—just like Xiang
Wai left an impact on Zhai Yanjun and vice versa. Whether they realized it by
now or not, it was true that they both had an undeniable connection from the
moment they both became the ray of light in each other’s dark world.
Apart from that, Hyson was also thinking about how people were often
connected in an inexplicable way. Xiang Wai might have not recognized Coco
after all these years but Coco definitely did.
“They are here,” said Huang Shuyi.
Hyson instantly turned around and as soon as he saw Zhai Yanjun and Xiang
Wai coming back, he hid under the table saying, “Brother, cover me!”
“Are we in a spy movie?” asked Huang Shuyi. “Besides, you brought them
together. Now, show your face.”
“Brother, I do good deeds in anonymity,” he replied. “You know, mystery? That mysterious feeling is kind of addicting.”
“Silly!” commented Huang Shuyi.
“Call me whatever. Just cover me for now!”
“You’re asking me to lie,” reminded Huang Shuyi.
“A lie told for a good cause isn’t a lie,” said Hyson. “Besides, you lied earlier when you started that act with Major as well. Don’t act like you don’t lie.”
Huang Shuyi chuckled softly to himself. He couldn’t help teasing Hyson right
now. He really didn’t think Hyson had a need to hide but since he wanted to, as a responsible elder brother, he’ll definitely cover him up. Not like it was
difficult to do..
