You’re Beautiful When You Smile
Chapter 57 Part 6
“We’ll take that.” Lu Sicheng pulled out a bankcard from his pocket: “Tell them your shoe sizes.”
Among the “41”s, “42”s and “40”s, someone said: “35” in the corner.
Everyone quieted down, even Lu Sicheng stopped handing his card over.
All of them turned to look at Tong Yao. She tipped her chin upward: “I’m size 35. Fire me if you dare.”
“......What nonsense are you talking about.” Lu Sicheng mumbled and turned to look at the salesperson.
The salesperson was uneasy under his gaze: “This one’s for men and starts from size 39. But, ah, I know, there’s a similar pair for women.”
The salesperson turned to the woman’s section to fetch a pair of red and white shoes in a similar style. It matched quite well next to the male version.
“What a coincidence.” The salesperson said with a smile: “The pair you chose happens to have a matching women’s pair.”
Tong Yao tried on the pair while comparing hers with Little Fatty’s to see how well they match. When she looked up again, she saw Lu Sicheng had already handed over his bankcard to the salesperson.
Tong Yao: “Hm, I feel like I can still try some of the others.”
Lu Sicheng: “It’ll be daybreak if you keep on trying different ones. Where is your sense of discipline?”
Tong Yao: “......”
After buying new shoes, the whole team went back to base in high spirits. They had won the game and each had received a new pair of shoes. They all felt quite satisfied.
Some went upstairs to set down their bags and take showers. Xiao Rui held Dabin in his arms and opened a can of cat food to feed the cat. Only Tong Yao and Lu Sicheng were left at the first floor of the base…...Tong Yao saw Lu Sicheng had sat down in front of his computer and seemed to be preparing to play ranked games. She hesitated, then walked over. She pulled out a coin from her pocket and grabbed Lu Sicheng’s hand, placing the coin into his palm.
Lu Sicheng: “?”
Tong Yao: “Jinyang said it’s bad luck to give shoes to others as a gift. The one who receives the shoes have to pay a little money to the one who gives the shoes so as to dispel the bad luck.”
Lu Sicheng: “......Which remote countryside are you from to come to the big city to play professionally? Do you even have the internet where you’re from?”
Tong Yao: “...........”
Lu Sicheng said without much expression on his face: “It applies only to lovers.”
Tong Yao thought about it and blushed, bending over trying to pry open Lu Sicheng’s hand: “Then give me back the coin.”
Lu Sicheng tugged his hand back and before Tong Yao could grab his hand, he swiftly dropped the coin into his piggy bank. Tong Yao gasped: “You think I can’t find it in-- --”
Before she could finish, Lu Sicheng grabbed the piggy bank up and shook it a few times. Then he stuffed the piggy bank into her arms: “Take you time to find it.”
Tong Yao: “....................................................”
Tong Yao: “Lu Sicheng, you’re so childish!”
Lu Sicheng: “I’m childish? Then, you’re stingy. It’s only one RMB and you’re asking it back. Stay to the side and take your time to find it, don’t interfere with my stream.”
