Chapter 159 – He’s a rare exception. Most men are big pig trotters (2)
Ruan Xia looked at Song Tingshen again. “If he lives alone, I think giving him healthcare products would be expensive and impractical. That’s something that’s only good for giving face. Giving him a massage chair would take up too much space. How about buying him a gift card for a local supermarket? When he has something he wants to buy, he can go buy it himself. If you directly give him money, he would refuse. As for a tangible gift, you have to tailor it to his taste. What does he like?”
Song Tingshen thought it over. “He likes calligraphy, the kind that uses brushes.
“That’s easy then. Give him a good set of brushes, blotting paper, and ink-stone… Ah, your teacher must be an elegant man.”
Ardent, loyal, and elegant, this was a template for a male lead!
She wanted to meet this man, who had kept his promise for nearly forty years.
“Okay, I’ll buy a good set of brushes, blotting paper, and ink-stone and send a supermarket gift card too.”
“Your teacher must be very good. You and your classmates graduated over twenty years ago and have your own families now, but they still remember to celebrate their teacher’s birthday. Your teacher must be especially good. Otherwise, who would remember after all these years?”
Song Tingshen silently nodded. “He’s been a teacher for a long time. As far as I know, he’s frugal and donates what he saves to others. It’s been so many years and he still takes care of his deceased girlfriend’s parents.”
If she didn’t know that Song Tingshen wouldn’t lie to her or make up details to make a story more interesting, she really couldn’t believe that such a person existed in this world.
Ruan Xia went to buy a supermarket gift card with a value of five thousand yuan. The cashier said that was the highest amount sold in the supermarket.
Thinking that she was going to meet such an ardent, loyal, elegant, and responsible man, Ruan Xia spent more effort and care in dressing up. Standing in front of the full length mirror, she felt as if she was going to meet Song Tingshen’s parents…
She was wearing a body-hugging white dress. She put up part of her long hair and had light makeup on. She looked simple and elegant. Beautiful people really looked good no matter how they dressed. She had to admit defeat to the original owner’s face value.
As for Song Tingshen, he wasn’t dressed formally today, but his temperament still showed through.
When the family of three came down in the hotel’s elevator, they attracted a lot of attention. Many people turned to look at them.
Little Wang was the king of flattery and began carrying out a mutual exchange of flattery with Ruan Xia, “Mom, you’re so pretty today!”
Ruan Xia pushed her hair back. “I’m only pretty today?”
“You’re super pretty every day!” Little Wang had gotten used to praising his mom every day. This made his mom happy, which made him happy too.
In situations like this, Song Tingshen normally chose to be a silent backdrop, but today, for the very first time, he said, “You do look very pretty.”
Ruan Xia couldn’t believe her ears. “Really?”
Song Tingshenn unobtrusively avoided eye contact with her. “En.”
Ruan Xia thought; sure enough, straight men liked dresses, preferably white dresses…
However, her mood did jump up when he praised her. She thought that Song Tingshen must have seen an eye doctor. Otherwise, why did it take until today for him to realize that she was pretty? In the past, when she dressed up as beautiful as a flower, he didn’t say a single compliment or take an extra look at her.
She really had gotten spoiled from too many compliments. She could no longer be satisfied with just Little Wang’s praises.
