Becoming a Movie Queen After Transmigrating as the Villain's Cat - Chapter 36.2
Zhao Min walked to her car and set the carrier on the front passenger seat. Lin Sifei quickly hid her phone, as if nothing had happened.
Zhao Min unzipped the carrier, letting Lin Sifei come and go as she pleased, and started up the car to head to her house.
Lin Sifei and Luo Ke messaged a bit more, and then she hid the phone again, and poked her head out to look out the window.
Zhao Min’s home wasn’t too far away from Luo Ke’s, and there wasn’t any traffic, so they weren’t on the road for very long.
“Mom, Dad, I’m back!” Zhao Min, with the carrier on her back, opened the front door, and then set the carrier carefully down on the table.
“What did you bring back?” Zhao Min’s father, wearing antique reading glasses, walked over. He immediately saw the cat’s head poking out from the cat carrier, “Oh, a cat.”
“It’s my boss’s cat.”
Lin Sifei climbed out from the carrier and jumped to the sofa, sitting obediently.
Zhao Min’s father stretched out a hand to pet her, so Lin Sifei rolled her head back and meowed, moving her ears, but she didn’t move or make any more actions.
Zhao Min, smiling while looking at her father petting the cat, went to the kitchen, “Mom~ I’ll make dinner, you go pet the cat.”
Zhao Min’s mother threw her a cursory glance, “I won’t, it’ll get our house full of cat fur.”
“Ayo, I’ll sweep it up okay, and plus, this was a favor my boss asked of me, I should be sending it home tomorrow since my boss found someone else.
Although Zhao Min’s mother sighed, later, she gave the spatula to Zhao Min, wiped her hands on her apron, and walked out of the kitchen.
When Lin Sifei saw Zhao Min’s mother come over with a cold face, she naturally shied away.
Mrs. Zhao used her palm to pat Lin Sifei’s head, and then petted her fur, “It looks great.”
“Yes, and raised well too, it feels like it’s well fed.”
Zhao Min’s dad pressed down on Lin Sifei’s back gently, and then moved over to allow Mrs. Zhao to sit on the sofa as well, leading to two people petting Lin Sifei on both sides.
Lin Sifei glanced at Zhao Min, coincidentally seeing her pick a piece of red braised ribs out of the plate she was about to serve.
Lin Sifei immediately meowed at her, and Mrs. Zhao turned back too to catch Zhao Min in the act. She immediately got up to slap Zhao Min on the back, “Child, again with your hands, the chopsticks are right there. You’re so lazy.”
Zhao Min hid in the kitchen, “I did use chopsticks, come one now, don’t make me drop the dish.”
Mrs. Zhao glared at her good naturedly, “Go serve the rice.”
Zhao Min giggled as she finished the food in her mouth, wiped her hands clean and went to serve the rice. Lin Sifei leapt onto a chair near the dining table, continuing to observe them.
Mr. Zhao was also observing her, “My dear, look, this cat knows how to come to the table by itself.”
Mrs. Zhao also laughed and reached out a hand to stroke her twice more, “Let’s go wash our hands and eat.”
Zhao Min finished serving all the food, and opened a can of cat food for Lin Sifei.
This family ate happily together, while teasing her once in a while. Lin Sifei, seeing that Zhao Min’s parents seemed friendly, was also happy to pretend to be an obedient cat to make them happy.
Luo Ke is a good boss. As there was much business to take care of in the company, she hired many secretaries to shoulder the burden and so no secretary was overwhelmed to the point they had to work overtime hours. After dinner, this family could sit on the sofa and eat fruit and dessert together.
As Mr. Zhao was petting her, he couldn’t help but suggest, “We should also raise a cat, like this one.”
Mrs. Zhao’s hand came down on his arm, “You raise it? You clean up the cat fur? You feed it and take care of its litter?”
Mr. Zhao thought about it, and then didn’t say anything else. Zhao Min, however, inched close to her father, “Dad, we can do it together, we’ll raise it well.”
Mrs. Zhao glared at them again, “As long as you guys clean up after it you can raise one.”
Zhao Min took a bite out of her apple and raised her hand, “I’ll go buy one tomorrow.”
Lin Sifei’s head had been petted so much that she was nodding along unconsciously, but she did feel that this family was adorable and suitable to teach something to Luo Ke.
Happy about her observation results, Lin Sifei opened her mouth and yawned, then layed down on the sofa.
Mrs. Zhao immediately noticed that and patted her daughter’s leg, “Is this cat about to go to sleep?”
When Zhao Min looked, it did seem like it, so she picked up the cat, “Mom, did you clean the small room? My boss said that this cat can’t really fall asleep with people around, so it can stay separately in that room.
“I did, you go carry it in. Should we find a cushion or something for it?”
“No need, Mom, you just sit here and watch TV, I’ll just place it on the small bed.”
“Okay, go along.”
Lin Sifei felt that she was moving, and then, she felt the soft bed mattress underneath her. Zhao Min grabbed the corner of a blanket and draped it over her, “It sleeps quite well.”
She laughed quietly, and walked out the room on tiptoe.
As soon as the door closed, Lin Sifei got up again, but then she realized that her cat carrier was still outside, along with her phone and clothes. She got up again and jumped to open the door, and ran over to the carrier, wanting to pull it in.
Zhao Min saw her and smiled while shaking her head, and help her place the carrier in the room, “We should be good now.”
Lin Sifei, satisfied that the bag was next to her, lay down as she was really going to sleep.
Zhao Min again closed the door, and then Lin Sifei hopped off the bed, turned back to a human, and got her phone out.
She opened her messages with Luo Ke, [Luo Ke Luo Ke, what are you doing?]
[Luo Ke: I am looking at the information related to Baylor right now, finding problems.]
Lin Sifei kicked her feet back and forth, [Then don’t sleep too late, it’s not good for your body.]
[Luo Ke: You rest early too, are you still comfortable at Zhao Min’s house?]
[Lin Sifei: So-so, I’m just pretending to be a cat and eating their canned cat food, of course it’s not as good as at home.]
[Luo Ke: Can you take care of yourself well at home?]
[Lin Sifei: You’re looking down on me, how can I not take care of myself well?]
[Luo Ke: You don’t even know how to use a hairdryer, can you really take care of yourself?]
Lin Sifei grit her teeth, the friction sound of her teeth sounding in her head. At this moment, she pretended that she was biting Luo Ke. [I can learn okay, I am a really fast learner!]
[Luo Ke: Okay okay, when you get back home if there’s anything you need you can just ask me, and I’ll be back soon.]
Lin Sifei pouted, [How fast is soon.]
[Luo Ke: At most two days.]
Lin Sifei wiggled her fingers as she hugged a pillow, two more days.
[Lin Sifei: Then you focus on work and hopefully get back soon, I need to be at the casting, the day after tomorrow.]
[Luo Ke: I will work hard and hopefully be there.]
The door suddenly sounded, so Lin Sifei hurriedly became a cat and laid upon the phone screen, blocking its light.
Lin Sifei closed her eyes and pretended to be asleep. It was Zhao Min, coming over to check on her. Seeing her asleep, Zhao Min petted her head twice and then left.
Lin Sifei sighed a long breath of relief, said farewell to Luo Ke, turned off the phone, and continued as a cat to sleep.
The next morning, Lin Sifei went home.
After waiting for a day, Luo Ke still hadn’t come back, so something must’ve happened again.
Lin Sifei could only go to the casting by herself, accompanying Director Chen.
Before she left the house, Lin Sifei made sure to recharge for 12 hours, and then styled herself nicely. She slipped on some high heeled shoes, and then stood up straight to draw in a breath.
Luo Ke wasn’t here, so Director Chen would probably not let her off the hook. If she had known that Luo Ke would not be there, she wouldn’t have provoked the director and orchestrated her own downfall!
Still, she clapped her hands, and with a pouty mouth, she walked out the door.
