“Yes, alright,” replied Shen Luo’an.
After he agreed, Shen Manting felt an even sweeter sensation bubbling in her heart.
“Would you like some cake?” Shen Luo’an asked. “I’ll bring one back for you when I return home,” he continued.
“Cake…” Manting thought.
It has been a long time since Shen Manting heard this word and just hearing the word made her salivate.
She rarely had the chance to eat cake when she was young.
She could only catch glimpses of tiny pieces of cake during Meifang’s birthday celebrations.
Since she never knew when her own birthday was, she had never had the chance to celebrate her birthday so, she never had a birthday cake that was meant just for her.
Shen Manting immediately started craving for cake along with a strong sense of excitement when she heard the word cake and innocently, she asked, “Is today my birthday?”
Shen Luo’an laughed at her excitement, clearly amused. “Can you only have cake on your birthday? In that case, I won’t buy you any then,” he teased her while chuckling.
“No, of course not,” Shen Manting quickly answered while straightening her back unconsciously. She then realised that she was acting far too eager. Feeling slightly embarrassed, she meekly stated, “I want cake.”
“Stay at home and wait for me to return,” Shen Luo’an said in a voice brimming with an indescribable sense of tenderness. “I’ll be back in half an hour,” he said.
“Ok!” Shen Manting exclaimed. “Be quick, I’ll be waiting for you! I’ll hang up first. Be quick!” she rambled excitedly.
“Alright,” agreed Shen Luo’an before disconnecting the call.
Shen Manting immediately threw her phone onto the bed and headed straight for the bathroom to fix her hair which had been messed up when she rolled around in bed earlier on.
After straightening her dress, she patted her face and walked out of the bathroom satisfied.
Just as she walked out, she suddenly recalled that she still had half an hour’s worth of time.
She then scurried into her room and took out her laptop to continue watching the movie that she had yet to finish.
It was titled “Gone with the Wind”.
After pressing play, the movie immediately started from where she had left off.
Shen Manting placed the laptop on the coffee table and became extremely engrossed in the show.
When she saw how Rhett Butler raped Scarlett under the influence of alcohol, she felt a piercing pain in her heart.
The scene then changed and it was the following day.
Scarlett was singing a song as she stretched and seemed to be in high spirits.
When the servants came to help her dress up, Scarlett asked, “Where is he?”
It then dawned upon Shen Manting that Scarlett was unaware that she was actually in love with Rhett Butler.
She only realised her own feelings after he had assaulted her.
“What a fool,” Shen Manting thought, finding Scarlett to be rather pitiful. “She doesn’t even know that she loves him,” she thought.
“They were married for so many years and their child is already so old.”
“Even a stone would have realised this long ago,” Shen Manting thought.
Scarlett actually thought that she was still deeply in love with Ashley.
Rhett actually believed her.
Scarlett was used to being fawned upon so his cold, distant attitude towards her worsened her heartache.
Yet, he could not bring himself to acknowledge his mistake to her.
All along, Rhett had thought that his feelings were unrequited and that she never cared for him.
Thus, he devoted all of his love, including that for Scarlett’s, to their daughter Bonnie Butler.
But after Bonnie Butler’s accidental death, Rhett Butler broke down completely.
Shen Manting started crying out loud as she sat on the sofa. When Nanny He saw this, she frowned and walked over. “What’s wrong?” she asked worriedly.
“Dead,” Shen Manting sobbed out as she wiped her tears. “Their daughter’s dead. The male lead is too pitiful. He thinks that the female lead doesn’t love him.” she cried out in despair.
“It’s time to eat. Don’t watch this anymore,” commanded Nanny He.
The doorbell rang right at that moment.
Shen Manting immediately closed her laptop, got up and dashed over to open the door.
When she saw that it was Shen Luo’an, she cheered out happily and dove straight into his arms like a bird. “My Dear!” she called out with great enthusiasm.
