34 Chapter 33 The Perverted Onii-Chan?

 When he saw Zhang Xiaotong's reply, Liu Zilang was speechless.

'Obsessed with my sister?'

All he wanted to do was ease his relationship with his sister. How did this make him obsessed with his sister?

Just when Liu Zilang wanted to explain, Zhang Xiaotong sent a few more messages as though her chatterbox was suddenly being opened up.

"Haha. Uncle you're definitely obsessed with your sister." There was a "covering mouth while smiling" emoticon attached together in the message.

"I'm so jealous of your sister."

"You must really care for her. How great would it be if my brother could be like you too." She added a crying emoticon in the message.

Upon seeing these few messages, Liu Zilang was startled.

He scratched his head and he thought to himself. Then he typed, "Your brother might also care about you a lot but perhaps you just can't feel it. Maybe he's also trying to ease the relationship between the both of you."

Right after Liu Zilang sent that message, there was a quick reply from Zhang Xiaotong, "Hmph! Definitely not! He doesn't even care about me at all."

"Then in your opinion, what does it mean for him to care for you?" Liu Zilang tried to ask.

"Hmm..." Zhang Xiaotong was silent for a while, she seemed to be thinking.

After a short while, a ton of messages came from her.

"To not always stay in his room, sometimes watch television with me, understand my hobbies, take me out during holidays, prepare breakfast in the morning and feed me..."

"Also, at night before going to bed say goodnight to me. If I can't sleep he must put me to sleep, it's best if he can..."

Looking at the messages from Zhang Xiaotong, Liu Zilang pulled a long face...

The corner of his eyes twitched.

'Damn it!'

'How's this considered as a brother?'

'Even a boyfriend can't do things to this extent right?'

Liu Zilang felt that everything Zhang Xiaotong had just said was from a comic book plot.

'This girl must've read too many comic books. Where can you even get such a brother in reality?'

'Good morning?'

'Good night?'

'Wouldn't it be awkward to say these things every day as a family?'

Nonetheless, some of the points were still bearable. For example, taking her out during holidays, understanding her hobbies, etc...

Thinking about this, Liu Zilang interrupted Zhang Xiaotong who was still fantasizing and replied, "There... I think whatever you've said really makes sense, but these things are best done step by step. You must first give your brother a chance."

Zhang Xiaotong was silent for a moment when she saw Liu Zilang's message. She then replied, "Yes, but my brother still won't care about me."

It seemed like this little girl was upset.

When Liu Zilang saw this message, he smiled wickedly.

That might not be the case!

Up till this point, he felt that whatever she said was not that hard to fulfill. Least said, soonest mended. He would be dead if Zhang Xiaotong found out that something was not right.

Therefore, Liu Zilang typed quickly and said, "Alright, I'd still advise you to give it a try. I'm also going to eat dinner now. Let's win another game again if there's a chance in the future."

It seemed like Zhang Xiaotong was still drowning in her sadness. She only replied "Yes" after reading the message he had sent and that was the end of their conversation.

...

After some time, the sunset that could be seen at the edge of the living room's window disappeared.

The sky slowly turned dark.

Liu Zilang turned on the lights and leaned on the living room's couch while watching television.

"Squeak!"

Zhang Xiaotong's door opened.

Wearing koala bear pajamas, she was holding her food container. She saw Liu Zilang who was watching television on the couch and stared at him blankly for a moment before silently bowing her head. She then walked toward the kitchen.

When Liu Zilang heard the noise behind him, he turned around and saw Zhang Xiaotong. Hence, he quickly stood up and stood in front of her. "Just leave it there, I'll help you wash it later."

Upon hearing Liu Zilang's words, Zhang Xiaotong lifted her head in confusion and took a glance at him. Nevertheless, she still left her food container in the kitchen and was about to turn around to head back to her room.

Liu Zilang was not going to waste this good opportunity. He immediately smiled while saying, "Xiao Tong, why don't we watch television together and chit chat a bit?"

However, when Zhang Xiaotong heard what Liu Zilang had said, her body suddenly retracted back.

The smile on Liu Zilang's face instantly froze.

'Isn't this what you've wanted?'

Then, he suddenly came back to his senses.

It was right.

Previously, the two of them barely even talked to each other. Now that he invited her to watch television together, it must have somehow felt a little awkward for her.

Thinking about this, Liu Zilang's face once again lit up with smile as he said, "Then let's chit chat. Oh yes, you like MAG right, actually I quite like MAG too."

Upon hearing Liu Zilang's words, Zhang Xiaotong pursed her lips. She took a glance at him while tilting her head. She obviously was not very convinced of what he said.

Liu Zilang noticed that and quickly added on, "Really. Your MAG is like all the latest comics right? I used to like watching cartoons when I was young, like The Powerpuff Girls and Shuke & Betta..."

While Liu Zilang was talking, the corner of his eyes spotted that Zhang Xiaotong seemed to be pulling a long face. He instantly stopped talking about his "memories".

Once again, Zhang Xiaotong lifted her head and took a glance at him blankly before curling her lips.

This time she really was going to head back to her room.

At this time, Liu Zilang also realized that what he said was a little out of the topic, and he saw that Zhang Xiaotong was about to step away.

Panicking, a thought suddenly crossed his mind, and he blurted out, "Have you watched 'In Solitude, Where We Are Least Alone'?"

Upon hearing this, Zhang Xiaotong somehow thought the name sounded familiar.

She suddenly stopped walking and turned around. She stared at Liu Zilang with her big eyes in doubt and anxiety.

When Liu Zilang saw this, he felt happy in his heart, thinking that he had finally managed to hit the correct topic.

Little did he expect that the next moment, Zhang Xiaotong's face would instantly turn red. Staring angrily and embarrassingly at Liu Zilang, she yelled, "Pervert!"

After saying that, she stomped back to her room while wearing her slippers and shut her door.

...

'Pervert?'

'How am I a pervert now?'

Liu Zilang looked at Zhang Xiaotong's back in confusion. He suddenly felt lost.

Talking about this topic, he had very little contact with things like comics. Aside from watching a few cartoons when he was young, he basically never watched any.

As for "In Solitude, Where We Are Least Alone" which Liu Zilang mentioned just now, he actually had not watched it before. The reason why he knew its title was because back in the past, Li Muqiu used to prefer watching comics similar to it.

Three years ago when he first joined team Se7en, he coincidentally saw Liu Muqiu staring secretly at his computer one night.

When he approached Li Muqiu, Li Muqiu suddenly turned off his computer's screen.

Liu Zilang asked him what he was watching but Li Muqiu said nothing except that he was only comics. In excitement, he then introduced this to Liu Zilang.

He mentioned that the comic he was watching was named 'In Solitude, Where We Are Least Alone'. It was a story about family love and the ups and downs in the story would make guys silent and make girls cry...

Last time when Li Muqiu introduced Liu Zilang to this story, it sounded quite interesting to him, and thus, it suddenly crossed his mind just now. He had blurted it out without thinking.

However, when he thought about Zhang Xiaotong's response and the way that Li Muqiu used to introduce this story in excitement, he suddenly felt that something was not right!

Liu Zilang quickly took out his phone and found Li Muqiu's contact.

"What was the comic you introduced to me last time actually about?"

As soon as the call was connected, Liu Zilang immediately went straight to the topic.

Li Muqiu was confused for a moment. He then asked, "What comic?"

"The one you used to watch at night last time, a story regarding family love," Liu Zilang reminded him in an unfriendly tone.

"Err... What happened?" Li Muqiu asked cautiously.

"I've recommended someone to watch it," Liu Zilang said.

"Who?" Li Muqiu asked.

"My sister," Liu Zilang answered.

"..." Li Muqiu was speechless.

The next moment, a busy tone came from the other side of the phone.

"Hello? Hello" Liu Zilang looked at his phone, the call was had hung up.

He instantly pulled a long face and tried to call back.

"Sorry, the person you're calling is not reachable..."

A nice female voice was heard over the phone.
