To My Dear Mr. Huo - Chapter 693 - You Have Someone You Like
Chapter 693: You Have Someone You Like
Love and affection couldn’t be restrained. Even if one worked hard, when one liked someone, the expression in one’s eyes couldn’t be hidden, and one’s facial expression couldn’t be hidden either.
No matter how much homework one did, no matter how much psychological construction one put in, it would be useless.
That low “I miss you” made Shi Mengwan throw away her armor.
She had thought many times that she might meet him again, but she had never thought that they would meet like this. She thought that two months was enough for her to do some psychological work. It was enough for her to forget about the person in front of her, and then she could return to her usual calm.
But when they really met, she realized that her heart was moving and was completely out of her control.
Smelling the familiar scent on his body and feeling the warmth brought by their lips and teeth, for a moment, she couldn’t extricate herself —
The dizziness only lasted for a moment. Shi Mengwan heard the sound of footsteps in the distance. She suddenly came back to her senses and pushed Zhan Haoze away forcefully. She took a big step back.
Because she had retreated too quickly, Shi Mengwan’s back even hit the wall behind her.
She felt some pain and steadied herself to stare at the man in front of her. Her gaze was very complicated. She lowered her eyes and after taking a few breaths, the flirtatious look from before had completely disappeared.
When she raised her head again, Shi Mengwan’s eyes were filled with rationality and not a single trace of emotion. A kiss that she couldn’t help but give was already the best she could give. She couldn’t do and couldn’t afford to give even more.
She looked at Zhan Haoze warily and turned to leave. However, Zhan Haoze stood in front of her and blocked her way.
“Wanwan?” Didn’t she likeit just now?
“Zhan Haoze, we’ve already broken up.”
Shi Mengwan said this calmly and Zhan Haoze’s eyes darkened. “Wanwan, I didn’t agree to it.”
“That’s your business. I thought we already had a tacit understanding.”
“Sorry, I won’t get involved with a man who has a fiancée.”
Shi Mengwan’s attitude was firm. Zhan Haoze wanted to stop her, but his phone rang just now. The number on it forced him to answer the call first.
It was at this moment that Shi Mengwan left the corridor.
When Zhan Haoze hung up the call and walked out, Shi Mengwan was no longer in her original position.
Of course, Wan Xianyang was also missing.
Shi Mengwan sat in her car and looked at Wan Xianyang, who had gotten into the car uninvited. She felt a little helpless. She thought that she had already made things clear.
In fact, the two-year agreement that Shi Mengwan had mentioned did indeed have the purpose of silencing Grandma Shi so that she would no longer have the idea of passing stepchild to her parents.
However, the reason behind the other purpose was that she wasn’t sure how far she could go with Zhan Haoze. Before that, she had no intention of getting married and had no intention of falling in love.
Using this as an excuse, she could avoid a lot of trouble.
However, she didn’t expect her mother to be so capable. Not only was she not repelled by the excuse and reason she found, but she even found a suitable man to go on blind dates with her again and again.
She was really convinced in this regard.
The car stopped at her apartment and she looked at Wan Xianyang helplessly. She had just said that she wasn’t feeling well and wanted to go home to rest.
Wan Xianyang suggested to send her home, no matter how much she refused. When she reached the parking spot, he took her car keys and got into the car.
“Since you’re not feeling well, I’ll drive.”
He knew that this was just her excuse, but Shi Mengwan really couldn’t drive him out of the driver’s seat.
“I’m already home.” Motioning for him to get out of the car and then return the car keys to her, Shi Mengwan reached out her hand to Wan Xianyang as she spoke.
Wan Xianyang got out of the car, but he didn’t return the car keys to her. Standing in front of the car and looking at Shi Mengwan, he was very tall.
“What do you mean by marrying into the family? You put it out on purpose to make things difficult for people, right?” What era was it now? Who would still make such a request?
Shi Mengwan’s expression didn’t change. She was very well aware of Wan Xianyang’s family background. He grew up with Huo Jinyao, so it probably wouldn’t be too bad.
“No, I’m serious.”
Appearing to be a little conflicted, Wan Xianyang looked at her. Seriously speaking, putting aside the one or two illegitimate children that his old man had accidentally had outside… His mother had only given birth to him.
He never had any siblings, which was why he had a particularly good relationship with Huo Jinyao and the others.
Now that Shi Mengwan had mentioned this condition, he was really stumped.
Even if he was willing, his parents wouldn’t agree to it. Wan Xianyang was having a headache. Even if this was indeed Shi Mengwan’s condition, he couldn’t do it.
“Mengwan, how about this? Let’s take a step back.”
Not understanding what he meant by taking a step back, Shi Mengwan looked at him.
“If you agree to be with me, we can have two children, one with your surname and the other with mine. How about it?”
Shi Mengwan looked at Wan Xianyang. For a moment, she was really touched.
With Wan Xianyang’s family background and status, it was already very sincere and earnest for him to say such words.
“Wan Xianyang, thank you.” Shi Mengwan thanked him sincerely. “I really thank you.”
She didn’t say more, but what did that mean that Wan Xianyang didn’t understand?
“En, you thank me, but you can’t accept me, right?”
“Wan Xianyang –”
“Mengwan, tell me the truth.” Wan Xianyang thought of what he had seen in France and the things that happened afterwards. “Do you have someone in your heart?”
Shi Mengwan was stunned for a moment. When she met Wan Xianyang’s clear eyes, she hesitated for a second and quickly nodded.
“Yes. I have someone I like.”
Wan Xianyang looked as if he had expected it. “No wonder.”
The atmosphere was a little silent. Shi Mengwan didn’t know what to say. She stood there while feeling a little awkward.
“It’s okay.” Wan Xianyang was much calmer than her. “I sensed it long ago.”
Shi Mengwan’s expression was strange. Wan Xianyang smiled gently. “If you don’t like someone, how could you not have such an outstanding man like me in your eyes? Don’t you think so?”
His words made Shi Mengwan’s expression relax quite a bit. She smiled lightly.
“Because I’m blind.”
With her smile, Wan Xianyang also relaxed. There were some things that could be seen through without being made explicit, but if they were really seen through, it would be better.
“Alright. Then I hope you won’t be blind for too long.” Wan Xianyang continued, “Otherwise, if you pretend to be blind, you’ll become really blind.”
After rejecting Shi Mengwan’s suggestion to send him off, Wan Xianyang walked out of the neighborhood and left.
Shi Mengwan looked at his back figure, and the corners of her lips curled into a straight line again.
She had been entangled with Zhan Haoze for such a long time. She couldn’t stop it, and it was messy. After going back and forth so many times, wasn’t she blind?
It was just that she didn’t feel like she could control her heart. Moreover, her feelings for Zhan Haoze were no longer as simple as her heart being moved.
After more than a year of them relying on each other, she never forgot the care and companionship she had once had.
Not letting herself think about Zhan Haoze anymore, she shook her head. Some things, no matter how difficult, had to be learned to let go.
Shi Mengwan didn’t see Zhan Haoze looking for her that night, which made her feel relieved once again.
Her personality could be said to be flamboyant, and her will could also be said to be firm. However, all of her rationality would become vulnerable in front of Zhan Haoze.
Perhaps, she needed to distance herself for a while? How about flying to Rong City for a few days after finishing this list? Not only could she accompany Su Qingsang, but she could also avoid Zhan Haoze.
Shi Mengwan thought it out well, but the next morning, when she opened the door and was about to go to work, she saw Zhan Haoze guarding the door.
Seeing him, Shi Mengwan instinctively took a step back, but thinking that she was going to work, she took another step forward.
This way, she stood in front of Zhan Haoze. His tall body made the entire door look very cramped. He also successfully blocked Shi Mengwan’s way out.
“Zhan Haoze, please move aside, I want to go out.”
“I bought breakfast for you.” Zhan Haoze acted as if he didn’t see her cold face. “You probably haven’t eaten breakfast yet. Go after you eat.”
Shi Mengwan stared at the bag that Zhan Haoze was carrying. The logo on it was a very famous Hong Kong-style breakfast restaurant in Lin City.
Withdrawing her gaze, Shi Mengwan’s hand gripped the bag tightly. “No need, thank you. I’ve eaten. Please move aside.”
Her stiff tone was an obvious rejection, but in Zhan Haoze’s eyes, such a rejection wasn’t thorough enough.
He suddenly moved his face closer to Shi Mengwan. This sudden action gave Shi Mengwan a fright, and her body naturally took a step back.
Stabilizing her body while continuing to move forward in front of her, Zhan Haoze placed the hand that didn’t carry breakfast on her waist.
The tip of his nose gently swept past her lips. Finally, he held her waist and took a step forward. The two of them stood in the house together. Zhan Haoze hooked the tip of his foot and easily closed the door.
He raised the bag in his hand.
“Zhan Haoze.” Shi Mengwan pulled his hand away and said somewhat angrily, “I’ve eaten.”
“You’ve eaten? Are you sure?”
“There’s nothing I’m not sure about.”
Zhan Haoze faced her and once again half-bent over. “Your mouth is full of the taste of toothpaste, but it doesn’t taste like breakfast.”
His serious tone made Shi Mengwan blush.
She bit her lip and pursed her lips tightly. After realizing what she had done, she loosened her grip a little.
“Zhan Haoze, are you alright?”
“Even if I didn’t eat, what does it have to do with you? I can go to the studio to eat. Can you move aside?”
Zhan Haoze didn’t move aside. He pulled her hand and led her to the dining table.
He was much stronger than her. Shi Mengwan tried a few times but couldn’t break free. She could only let him pull her away.
“Zhan Haoze –”
Zhan Haoze put the bag in his hand on the table and opened it. He took out a few lunch boxes from inside and laid them out one by one.
Shi Mengwan was finally able to break free from his hand when he laid out the lunch boxes. She took a step back and stood about one meter away from Zhan haoze.
“Zhan Haoze, we’ve already broken up.”
If he didn’t hear her clearly yesterday, she didn’t mind saying it again today.
Zhan Haoze turned around and faced the coldness in her eyes. He took a step forward and stood in front of her.
“I didn’t agree.”
“I don’t need your consent.”
She had already made up her mind and wouldn’t change it.
“Wanwan, do you have to do this?”
“Zhan Haoze, do you have to do this?”
Shi Mengwan had a headache. She was really trying her best to control herself and try her best to forget about him. Why did he have to show up?
“You go –”
Shi Mengwan took a step back and pointed towards the door.
She didn’t want this. She didn’t like him coming and going whenever he wanted. He couldn’t afford the love she wanted, so She didn’t want him to provoke her anymore.
Zhan Haoze’s brows were tightly knitted together. “Wanwan –”
He wanted to explain himself, but his phone rang again. He glanced at Shi Mengwan and picked up the call.
The news on the other end of the line made his expression change. He looked at Shi Mengwan with a serious expression. “I’ll be right there.”
After hanging up, he put his phone away and looked at Shi Mengwan. “I have some urgent matters to take care of. I have to go out for a while now. No matter how unhappy you are, you still have to eat breakfast.”
After saying that, he endured it and didn’t hug Shi Mengwan. Instead, he left in a hurry.
Shi Mengwan looked at his back and felt the seriousness in his words just now. Although he had not appeared during this period of time, he had clearly lost some weight today.
Zhan Haoze’s footsteps were a little fast, so fast that Shi Mengwan didn’t even have the time to ask him what had happened. However, her intuition told her that this wasn’t an ordinary matter.
When the car stopped at the entrance of the first hospital, Tang Hua had already stepped out. When he saw Zhan Haoze, he walked to him quickly.
“The accident happened an hour ago. At that time, Miss Chen was about to go to work. When she was about to reach the Chen Coporation’s building, a car rushed out from the corner and crashed into Miss Chen’s car.”
Tang Hua said very clearly, “The police have been called and the car that caused the accident has been detained, but I think it’s no ordinary incident.”
He didn’t say anything else, but his meaning was quite clear. This accident was not an accident, but man-made.
Zhan Haoze didn’t ask any more questions and went straight to the hospital. When he went in, Chen Feifei was still in resuscitation.
He couldn’t ask the doctor how she was doing, and not long after, Chen Yongchang came too. As soon as he came, he came straight for Zhan Haoze.
Without giving Zhan Haoze a chance to speak, he directly waved his fist at him.
However, before his fist touched Zhan Haoze, Zhan Haoze had already taken a step back to avoid it.
Chen Yongchang was very angry. He pointed at Zhan Haoze. “Ungrateful. You’re ungrateful.”
“I, I want you to take good care of Feifei. Is this how you take care of her? It’s fine if you don’t show up, but once you do, you put Feifei in the hospital?”
“Don’t call me that. I can’t afford it.” Chen Yongchang was really angry. Zhan Haoze couldn’t refute, and he didn’t intend to refute himself.
He had already asked Tang Hua to investigate why this happened. The specifics of the situation would have to wait until Tang Hua finished investigating.
But before Tang Hua gave the investigation results. Zhan Haoze’s cell phone rang again.
There were a few photos on the screen. One was of Chen Feifei’s car accident this morning, and the other was of him and Chen Feifei together. The other was of Chen Feifei alone together.
Three photos and a sentence.
“It’s not over yet –”
Zhan Haoze’s heart skipped a beat. There was no need to wait for the results of the investigation. This was the work of the Zhan family.
He had thought that Zhan Kun and uncle Chi might retaliate, but he didn’t expect that the other party would actually target Chen Feifei.
No, he shouldn’t be surprised. This was how they did things. Zhan Haoze held his phone with a solemn expression.
He turned to leave, but was stopped by Chen Yongchang.
“Where are you going? Where else can you go? Let me tell you, I won’t let this matter go just like that. You must give our Feifei an explanation.”
Zhan Haoze was silent. He couldn’t give her an explanation. What he could do was to avenge Chen Feifei and stop those blind people from coming to cause trouble.
“Uncle, don’t worry. I will give you an explanation.”
This time, Zhan Haoze wasn’t in a hurry to leave. He waited outside the resuscitation room for Chen Feifei to wake up.
After the doctor rescued Chen Feifei, he told them that Chen Feifei was out of danger. There was no problem for the time being.
Zhan Haoze breathed a sigh of relief. However, he could not completely relax.
Chen Feifei’s injury wasn’t serious. She would recover after a few days of rest. In his opinion, this didn’t seem like they were deliberately trying to kill Chen Feifei. Instead, it seemed like they were giving him a warning.
When he realized this, Zhan Haoze suddenly had a bad feeling.
Soon, he received a new text message on his phone.
“Do you feel relieved? Zhan Haoze, it’s too early to be happy. Do you think we don’t know who you really want to protect because you found a shield?”
Zhan Haoze’s heart skipped a beat. He almost immediately thought of Shi Mengwan.
He couldn’t sit still when he thought of this. He didn’t care how long Chen Feifei would take to wake up. He hurriedly turned around to look for Shi Mengwan.
Shi Mengwan must be fine.
Along the way, he kept urging the driver to drive faster. Faster.
His phone didn’t ring again, but this time, it was even more torturous. His hands on his knees were tightly clenched into fists. He was still careless. He should have been more cautious.
Shi Mengwan didn’t eat the breakfast that Zhan Haoze prepared, but she wasn’t a wasteful person.
After thinking about it, she brought the breakfast to the company and gave it to the other people in the studio, but even so, she still felt that it wasn’t enough.
There was a fire in her heart. That fire made her want to burn Zhan Haoze without care.
She was still thinking about how she would face Zhan Haoze the next time he came, or whether she would use more drastic measures.
No matter what, she couldn’t continue like this.
She had just made up her mind and forced herself to divert her attention away from Zhan Haoze.
On the other end, Zhan Haoze suddenly rushed into her office.
Xiao Ji followed behind Zhan Haoze and looked at her helplessly with a conflicted expression. “Sister Shi, I couldn’t stop him.”
Zhan Haoze saw that Shi Mengwan was safe and sound, then breathed a sigh of relief. He stepped forward and reached out to hug her.
He needed to make sure she was safe, but Shi Mengwan suddenly raised her hand and blocked his chest. Her face gradually became filled with anger.
“Zhan Haoze, have you gone crazy again?”
