“You know who I am talking about.”
“Don’t be silly, I haven’t slept with a lot of those women,” Su Yu knew that Huo Mian saw plenty of different women enter and exit his room, so it was natural for her to assume.
“How many is ‘a lot’?” Huo Mian looked at Su Yu as she thought it was funny.
“Why should I tell you? You’re not my woman.” Su Yu raised his head in pride.
“Eww, don’t say things like that. I’d rather kill myself than be your woman.”
“You…” Su Yu rarely won whenever he fought with Huo Mian, but even when he lost, he would never get mad.
“Who was that man? Your boyfriend? He’s not that good looking, he must be one of those vulgar nouveau riches,” Su Yu mockingly laughed.
“If having money makes someone a vulgar nouveau riche, then you’re a super vulgar nouveau riche.”
“What? You don’t like it when I talk about your boyfriend like that?”
“He’s not my boyfriend,” Huo Mian replied as she lowered her head to look at the charts.
Su Yu seemed to be happier when she said that person wasn’t her boyfriend. He put his hands on the on-call booth and looked at Huo Mian, “So, do you have a boyfriend?”
“Why does it matter to you?”
“If you don’t have a boyfriend, I could introduce someone to you. Look at those bodyguards of mine, they’re all handsome and tall, and all better than that kid who was just there.”
“Your bodyguards sure are better than you.” Huo Mian said as she raised her head to look at Su Yu.
“So? Do you want me to introduce one of them to you?” Su Yu smiled mysteriously.
“Doesn’t the Su family work in the banking sector? When did you guys switch to matchmaking? Is your business transforming?”
Su Yu’s face immediately turned grim…
“Hey, you despicable girl, I meant well…”
“I don’t need your good intentions, you might as well tightly shut the doors to your room, and don’t let your rumors fill every corner of the hospital. Ever since you’ve arrived, the hospital’s reputation has gone down. Those who are familiar with us will think that we’re a recovery center, while those who aren’t might suspect that we’re a brothel.”
After Huo Mian spoke, she rolled her eyes at Su Yu and returned to the on-call office with her dim sum.
She left a disgruntled Su Yu alone at the on-call booth…
After she finished a delicious lunch, she looked at the time; she had twenty more minutes before her lunch break was over.
Huo Mian logged onto WeChat and chitchatted with Zhu Lingling. She eventually mentioned to her about seeing Wei Dong.
Zhu Lingling was biased towards Wei Dong, so she immediately warned, “Ignore Wei Dong, he’s a despicable opportunist. Thankfully he knew to back down in the face of adversity, or else Qin Chu would have definitely punished him for it.”
Huo Mian laughed…
“Right, so have you two… done the Bow-chick-a-wow-wow yet?” Zhu Lingling gossiped.
“Whoa, are you asexual? You guys have been sleeping together in the same bed for so long and still nothing? I don’t believe it.” Even Zhu Lingling seemed to be on Qin Chu’s side.
After a moment of thought, Huo Mian replied, “Liking someone means having your way with him; loving someone is learning to control yourself for him. Lingling, the deeper I feel for Qin Chu, the more hesitant I become. If it really happened between the two of us one day, I would definitely feel much more different than I do now.”
“I’m not trying to nag you, but it’s not your first time anymore. Don’t you remember what happened when you were drunk seven years ago?”
Huo Mian felt slightly awkward about what happened seven years ago…
“I was young then and didn’t care about anything, or about tomorrow. I did it only at the heat of the moment and gave all of myself to him. However, now that I’m older, I’ve become more cautious about this stuff; being wild was only an immature thing I did when I was young, and I’m mature now.”
“But have you ever thought that maybe Qin Chu’s mom would accept you if you were pregnant with her grandkid?” Zhu Lingling suggested.
“And what if I have his baby, but the conflict between us have yet to be resolved? Then my child will have to endure the same kind of torment that I went through. By then, it will only trouble Qin Chu.”
“So… are you still thinking about divorcing him?” Zhu Lingling asked in a voice message.
