"Ah... speaking of good decisions. Why don't you choose that red bustier set? You can even attach that lacy skirt with garter." Zhuo Jingren said while giving her a wink, excitement apparent in his eyes.
"I can't wear something like that in the office." Lily said sternly before she started pointing at other lingerie. "I'll take that! And that! And that!" she pointed to some bras and underwear for the attendant to take out from the display.
"I thought it was for me." Zhuo Jingren whispered. His voice had a tinge of disappointment. "Are you going to wear that in case I visit your office?"
"Of course not!" Lily answered righteously. "I feel good about myself so I chose to buy some lingerie. This has nothing to do with you at all."
"Why do people always think that women want to look good for their men? As a feminist, I believe that we women should wear something for ourselves." she said as she continues to point to every lingerie that caught her attention.
"Ah… good. That's good. You have chosen a lot. Shall we go ahead and try it on?" Zhuo Jingren grinned at her.
"Why are you using 'we'?" Lily stopped in her tracks and narrowed her eyes at Zhuo Jingren. Then she eyed the attendant who was trying to avoid her gaze. "President Zhuo, are you going to wear these pieces of clothing too?"
"No… No… Of course not, I have to be there and watch you try it on. After all, It is always better to have another person's unbiased opinion!" he said shamelessly.
"I don't need one." Lily countered. What is this shameless man talking about? Lily eyed the attendants who were now blushing. A handsome man acting like this is extremely… peculiar.
"Then who will praise you once you try it on? It's a husband's job to always praise his woman. Come… Come let me accompany you to the fitting room." Zhuo Jingren put his arms around Lily's waist and walked towards the fitting room. However, one of the attendants was quick to stop him.
"I'm sorry sir but we don't allow a man to accompany a woman in our fitting room." An attendant respectfully said. This was their store's policy and no matter how good looking the couple was, they were not exempted from the rules.
Lily instantly beamed at her 'pervert' husband. She sent him a mocking smile while laughing inwardly. She can't imagine what this man would do while thinking of her trying on different lingerie on the other side of the door. Isn't that extremely frustrating?
"Then take me to the VIP fitting room." Zhuo Jingren said, surprising Lily. VIP fitting room? She never heard of such a thing before.
"My apologies sir but only our VIP clients who holds our VIP card can enter the VIP room."
As expected, Zhuo Jingren's face darkened as he gave a cold look to the attendant. Then he snapped his fingers and said, "Jichen. Come."
Lily's head instantly turned towards the man who was running towards Zhuo Jingren. There was still a small bandage on his head.
"He insisted on working again even though he was not feeling well. He threatened me, so I gave in." Zhuo Jingren immediately defended himself when he sensed that Lily was sending him a cold look. He was not heartless, alright? Go Jichen was discharged from the hospital this morning and yet, he had already started to work. Zhuo Jingren tried to deny his request over and over. He even offered a leave until he was better but Go Jichen still insisted and told him that he would stand outside of his office to wait for his decision.
In the end, Zhuo Jingren agreed. He knows that Go Jichen's stubbornness is imprinted into his bone just like his loyalty to him.
"President." Go Jichen looked at Zhuo Jingren waiting for his words. However, before Zhuo Jingren could utter a word, Go Jichen suddenly look at Lily. "Madam, it's not the President's fault. Please, don't blame him. I prefer working with the president to staying at home." Of course, Go Jichen knew what Lily was thinking. He could see it in her eyes as she eyed Zhuo Jingren. This was the reason why he immediately defended his boss. After all, it really wasn't Zhuo Jingren's fault.
"Alright." Lily nodded.
"Ah… Jichen. Give them the VIP card that the owner of this Lingerie store gave us back in Korea." Zhuo Jingren said.
In response, Go Jichen opened the laptop briefcase that he always carried with him and gave the attendant a black slick card with a logo of the Lingerie shop. When the attendant received the card, she immediately gave Zhuo Jingren a small bow and gestured for them to follow her. It was a top notch VIP card that is only given by their boss to a few people. Even some A list stars did not have their card. This could only mean that this couple is very influential, the attendant concluded immediately.
"Let's go?" Zhuo Jingren smiled at Lily. However, the latter just narrowed her eyes at him.
"A VIP card at a famous lingerie shop?" she asked in a cold tone they followed the attendant.
"Ah… the owner of this shop insisted that I have it. In case I buy something for my woman. This card had been with me for two years now and I have never used it. Actually, there is a way to check how many times a card holder have used the card. They use this app on the phone for that. I mean… there is this point system that I am not aware of. Or I have forgotten about. What I mean to say is that this card does not have any point. In other words, I have never used it before!" Zhuo Jingren explained, flustered. "You can download the app if you want to. I am telling the truth."
Lily narrowed her eyes at Zhuo Jingren who was out of breath from talking so fast. Then she burst into a fit of laughter. Sometimes, she really didn't know if she deserves a man as adorable as her husband.
Of course, Zhuo Jingren's smile would eventually remind her that she does.
