GHML - Chapter 7.1: Is There Something Wrong With His Brain? (1)

Shang Jing’s hands were suddenly empty. Looking at He Jiang who was still covered in soap suds, he frowned. “What are you doing in the middle of your shower?”

He Jiang immediately covered the receiver portion of the phone. His heart was in arrays. “What nonsense are you spewing to my father?”

It was true Shang Jing was feeling guilty after subconsciously spewing out the truth under Uncle He’s lead. But when he saw how angry He Jiang was from having his secret marriage publicized, this little bit of guilt evaporated into nothing.

Shang Jing: “I didn’t say anything.”

He Jiang: “Did you really not?”

Hmph. How much information can an amnesia patient reveal? He had merely asked about how you had been. I haven’t even had the chance to say anything bad about you.

Anyway, could He Jiang not share this fact with his parents over some red wine? So he would not have to go through this awkward phone call.

Was he afraid he would pester him to arrange for a meeting between his parents and him?

He Jiang stared at Shang Jing. Noticing his uncompromising attitude, he massaged his nose bridge.

It was fine for him to call Cen Feinuo or Yang Yue since they were friends. But his parents would surely take it seriously.

Who would dare to introduce him to their parents with his current attitude and behavior?

But since it had come to this, He Jiang decided to take a video of the current situation and sent it to his father via WeChat.

He pushed his dripping wet hair back and wiped his hands on a towel before starting to type.

【He has injured his head and is spouting nonsense. Don’t take his word as the truth… 】

Before he could finish typing, he was interrupted by an incoming text.

【Is that my son-in-law?】

【Your mother and I are quite satisfied with him.】

He Jiang stared at the water droplet on his screen. He closed his eyes in frustration. Just because of this tiny little water droplet, his typing speed had been slowed down which gave his father the opportunity to misunderstand the situation.

How should he clear up the misunderstanding now?

He Jiang wiped the water droplet away with his thumb and continued typing: 【The video is not to show you how he looks like but to show you his head…】

However, he was once again intercepted by the other party: 【Leaving your injured wife alone at home, who did you go out drinking with? I told him you had dinner with us, remember to go along with our story. The next time you do this, we will not cover for you.】

He Jiang gave up and put his phone down. Considering Shang Jing was still in the room, he did not dare to make a sound to vent his frustration. How could he fight with his mother when she was using the text-to-speech function?

Yes, the latter message was obviously from his mother.

It’s alright. I’ll call back tomorrow morning to explain the situation.

He Jiang threw the phone on the bed. “You…”

He looked at himself. In his current state, regardless of what he was about to say, it would seem like he was going to force himself on him. Considering their current relationship, he decided to get dressed first.

“Wait here.”

Shang Jing’s eyes followed He Jiang into the bathroom. As soon as he was out of sight, he took

Only an idiot would continue waiting there.

A true pain in the ass would never look back at the explosion behind.

Shang Jing’s escape was not unexpected by He Jiang. After he emerged from the shower, he picked up his phone and pondered over the choice of words to use when explaining the matter to his parents.

The phone screen was still lit. A new message appeared in the chat…

【Xiao Jing is quite smart. Stay true to yourself. He can definitely see through your lies.】

He Jiang rubbed his eyes in disbelief. Shouldn’t it be ‘Xiao Jing is quite dumb, don’t bully him’?

Little did he know, Mother He had arrived at this conclusion due to the following…

Father He had unexpectedly got Shang Jing to admit to being He Jiang’s dating partner and was openly trying to get more information from him.

However, Shang Jing had probably caught wind of what Father He was doing. Even though he had remained polite, he had not revealed another piece of useful information to him. It was obvious he had made a pact with He Jiang to not announce their dating news to their parents.

But experience still mattered. Father He adopted a different approach and started to ask about He Jiang’s well-being. That was when Shang Jing started spilling the beans, like how they had hired a new helper, what purchase they had made…

By the end of the call, Shang Jing had left the impression of him being an intelligent person to Mother He. But not an exceptionally intelligent person, mainly an obedient sweet-talker.

He Jing towel-dried his hair and went to the kitchen to warm up some milk. Splitting the portion into two cups, he placed one of them on the rack beside Shang Jing’s room.

He knocked on the door. “I’ve placed the milk beside your door. Remember to drink it.”

He stood there briefly but before Shang Jing opened the door, he had made his way back to his room.

He Jiang was still unable to grasp the motive of Shang Jing’s actions. Many times, this had caused him to generate a lot of self-indulgent thoughts.

But maybe Shang Jing was unsure of what he wanted himself. Being newly back in the country and blindly rushing into his arms after hurting his head, he could have been acting instinctively without much thought of the consequences.

He Jiang sighed. He had always called Shang Jing dumb. Since he was the smart one, he should be the one to maintain the distance between them, to give them both some time to consider their future.
