Chapter 1129: He Should Feel Grateful
Xia Mo’s hands that were about to push Mr Zhou away paused, and her long and curly eyelashes fluttered violently.
Was she seeing things?
Or else, why would the doctor be coming her way?
Did he come here to look for her?
Sister Yanran saw her moments and told the doctor?
A million thoughts were running around Xia Mo’s mind at the moment.
Mr Zhou was saying something in front of her, but her mind was blank so she could not hear a word.
“Miss Xia, are you all right?”
Xia Mo regained her senses and smiled brightly. “I’m fine.”
How was she fine when she was looking like that? She was really disappointing. Seeing the doctor here, she was already panicking when she was not even sure if he was here to find her.
No, she must remain calm.
Xia Mo did not look at that slim figure and thanked Mr Zhou with a smile.
She had put on makeup today, her black hair flowing over her shoulders and when she smiled, it was charming and eye-catching.
The corner of Xia Mo’s eyes swept over to that tall figure and when he was walking towards her table, her heart was almost in her throat.
But, very soon, he went past her.
Xia Mo felt really f*cked up at that moment.
Junyuan sat at the table behind Xia Mo and took his time ordering, and even ordered a bottle of red wine.
Xia Mo did not look behind her at all.
Junyuan poured a glass of wine for himself and looked at the beautiful back of the girl in front of him as he drank. When he came into the restaurant, he saw her and her date at one glance.
They were behaving intimately.
When he passed by her, she was smiling very sweetly at that person.
Just now when he was sitting behind, she was still laughing and that laughter sounded piercing and uncomfortable to his ears.
Junyuan downed several glasses of red wine.
Seeing the two people in front of him so engrossed in their conversation, there was a nameless anger in his heart and stimulating his nerves. He frowned and did not understand where this emotion came from.
But very soon, he understood it. Yes, ever since that day he sent Yanran to the airport and saw her in the arms of a young man, he had felt this emotion.
That strange turbulence he felt all came from this girl who was ten years younger than him. This girl had disturbed his life and his feelings. He should feel grateful that during this period of time, she did not come and disturb him.
But in fact, he was not happy at all. He had never expected that she would have left such a deep imprint in his lacklustre life.
Junyuan gripped the wine glass tight and shook his head, laughing softly to himself.
Xia Mo really had nothing to say to Mr Zhou. When he suggested to go watch a movie at night, she wanted to refuse at first, but when she thought of the doctor who had come alone to drink, she nodded. “Okay, I heard that a few good Hollywood action blockbusters were released recently, I was thinking to go and watch it!”
Mr Zhou’s mouth twitched. This girl was really different from other girls. Was their first movie together not a romantic love story?
But it was good that she was willing to go with him.
It was better to take it one step at a time!
Xia Mo stood up with her bag. “I’ll go to the washroom first.”
“Okay, I’ll wait for you at the door.”
Xia Mo walked towards the washroom.
After touching up her makeup, she leaned against the sink in a daze for a while before going out. Young Master Huo had sent a message over, asking her thoughts about the blind date but she ignored it.
Walking out of the washroom, Xia Mo met Junyuan in the corridor.
He also seemed to be using the washroom and in order not to have any wishful thinking, Xia Mo pretended not to see him.
She lowered her eyes and walked forward.
When she passed by him, she caught a faint whiff of red wine.
Xia Mo’s heart skipped a beat.
When they passed by each other, she felt a grip on her arm and before Xia Mo could react, she was pulled into an empty room.
She was thrown against the door.
Xia Mo’s eyes widened and looked at the man who was in front of her, staring intently at her.
His gaze was strange and deep.
As if he was looking deep into her soul.
Xia Mo’s back knocked onto the door handle and hurt slightly. This made her angry, but she did not show it on her face. She gritted her teeth and turned, wanting to open the door.
The next second, she heard the man’s cold voice say, “You changed fast.”
What did he mean change fast? Why did she not understand at all?
Xia Mo turned around and looked at him with a frown. “What do you mean?”
“If I remember correctly, you have a boyfriend. So, why are you here for a blind date so soon?”
Xia Mo shivered and understood what he meant.
Was he saying that she was promiscuous and shameless?
The anger in her body was rising, but there was a cold smile on her face. “Yes, I’ll just change if I don’t like one. I can like whoever I want and be with whoever I want. I’m not anyone to you, so what right do you have to question me?”
She curled her lips mockingly.
She deliberately showed contempt in her eyes and it made Junyuan think of a lot of things. About Shen Jiayi, and also about Xia Mo.
He did not know how many sides a woman had. She might have you in her eyes today, but tomorrow, she could step on you until you were left in the dust.
“Are women all like this?”
Xia Mo looked at his darkening expression and suddenly thought of his ex-girlfriend. When he was injured, his ex-girlfriend had said many mean things in front of him which should have hurt his heart.
With furrowed eyebrows, Xia Mo felt her heart ache for him but she put on an indifferent expression. “Why, you thought of your ex-girlfriend? Actually you’re quite pitiful. You were dumped by your girlfriend so you must have felt miserable inside and vented your anger at me, right? Was it not enough and you came here to continue?”
Come on, fight with her. It might make her give up and start a new relationship.
But as Xia Mo spoke, she was frightened by his dark expression.
Oh my God, was he going to beat her up?
“Hey, hey, hey. Gentlemen only fight with words and not with their hands. If you have nothing else to say, I’ll be leaving first. I’m going to watch a movie with my date later!”
Xia Mo had already pushed the door open a crack.
But soon, the door handle was stopped by a long and fair hand.
Then the door was slammed shut with a bang.
Xia Mo was grabbed at by the arm and dragged to the wall of the room. Her shoulders knocked onto the cold and hard wall and she gasped in pain.
She was about to get angry at him, but her pupils constricted in fright when she looked up and saw the man’s stormy expression.
Was he really going to beat her up?
“Doctor Xia, let’s talk calmly. Didn’t you not hit your ex-girlfriend when she treated you like that? You can’t be so unfair. I was hurt by you before so I’m hurting you back. We’re even now, right? You can’t hit me!”
Xia Mo used her hands to cover her face.
After a while, she heard the man say, “Move your hands away and look at me.”
His voice was deeper than usual. It was slightly oppressive, but also wickedly seductive at the same time.
Xia Mo slowly put down her hands. “Don’t hit me.”
“I’m not going to hit you. I’m going to kiss you.”
