The Legitimate Daughter Doesn’t Care! - Chapter 200
Edited By Adrian
After a long while, Tong Yan finally understood and nodded.
At that moment, Xu Xinduo walked out and said to Yin Hua, “Auntie, the dress is a little loose.”
At this time, Tong Yan said: “It’s beautiful.”
Xu Xinduo looked at Tong Yan for a long time before suddenly saying: “I’m not fat!”
Tong Yan: “???”
What happened now?
The dress worn by Xu Xinduo was quite suitable for her and the competition.
Yin Hua stood beside Xu Xinduo and said, “We are indeed very similar in figure and our measurements are basically the same, but I’ve gotten a little fat these past few years.”
Xu Xinduo immediately denied: “No, it’s still very beautiful.”
Yin Hua laughed happily for a long time. After thinking about it, she said, “I’ll find you a suitable set of jewellery. Meanwhile, you should change your clothes.”
Yin Hua went out after speaking. Xu Xinduo went back behind the curtain to change clothes. Tong Yan stood outside and waited for her. After a while, Xu Xinduo whispered to him.
Tong Yan walked over and asked suspiciously: “What’s the matter?”
“I can’t pull down the zipper.”
Tong Yan raised his hand to help Xu Xinduo pull down the zipper. It seemed to have gotten stuck on an uneven area so he said, “It has been long since someone wore this dress. The zipper must not be functioning. Let’s have it replaced once you take off this dress. You should lift up your hair so it doesn’t get caught in the zipper.”
Xu Xinduo obediently tucked up her hair and held it with both hands.
Tong Yan looked at the back of Xu Xinduo’s neck from close range. It was very slender and swan-like with almost no noticeable trapezius muscle, highlighting her snow-white shoulders.
He quickly looked away and carefully helped her to pull down the zipper. After getting by the uneven spot, the zipper easily pulled all the way down. The dress had a tube top like shape but it was quite heavy. Once the zipper was opened, the dress fell down.
(T/L: I don’t know what type of this dress exactly is. I used [tube top] as the best reference as I couldn’t figure out English terms for words used in raw.)
In front of Tong Yan was Xu Xinduo’s bareback. The dress was about to fall off so he quickly reached out to help her hold it. Unexpectedly, he took Xu Xinduo into his arms.
Xu Xinduo let go of her hair, raised her head and immediately tried to hold her dress in panic. She turned to look at Tong Yan as she bumped into Tong Yan’s arms.
In Tong Yan’s eyes, everything seemed to have slowed down – her hair falling, then her panicked expression, and the rarely seen helpless look of the little girl.
Tong Yan swallowed a mouthful of saliva. His heart was beating violently, almost bursting out of his chest to Xu Xinduo.
It just so happened that Yin Hua came back over with the jewellery at this time. Tong Yan subconsciously pulled the curtain closer, hiding the two of them entirely.
Yin Hua was talking when she came: “I think this necklace is the most suitable. Neither too exaggerated or…”
Seeing the curtain getting drawn, Yin Hua stopped for a while and then continued with a smile: “Oh… I should go downstairs and wait to eat the porridge made by Duoduo.”
Xu Xinduo wanted to explain, but didn’t know what to say. After Yin Hua left, she kicked him out: “You get out. I don’t need you inside.”
“Oh ok.” Tong Yan let go of Xu Xinduo and immediately came out of the curtain.
