SEVEN YEARS WITHOUT YOU
(You Want to Play? Game On. (1)
“I’m not letting you go until you tell me what’s wrong with you.” She had never seen Huo Siqian so serious.
“My gastritis relapsed.”
Seeing Huo Siqian so stubborn, Huo Mian had no choice but to surrender with her head down…
“Your gastritis relapsed?” Huo Siqian frowned.
Before Huo Mian could respond, he pulled her all the way to the hospital pharmacy. He knew where to go better than she did.
“Get me some Enteric-coated Omeprazole Magnesium tablets,” Huo Siqian said anxiously to the person by the pharmacy window.
The nurse standing post at the pharmacy had just sneaked a nap, so her movements were slow… She got up in a daze.
“Hurry up.” Huo Siqian increased his volume, scaring the nurse sh*tless.
She didn’t dare to ignore Huo Siqian and immediately got the medicine for him…
Then, Huo Siqian threw a hundred-yuan bill by the counter and pulled Huo Mian away.
On the second-floor waiting area, Huo Siqian poured Huo Mian a glass of warm water.
Huo Mian didn’t say anything. She took out two capsules and swallowed them.
“How did you know that I took this medicine?” Huo Mian was curious as to why Huo Siqian knew her so well.
They didn’t even interact much over the years…
“Don’t dwell on it, how did your gastritis relapse?” Huo Siqian asked coldly, unlike his usual teasing self.
“I was too busy and forgot to have dinner.”
“Too busy? Is everyone else at South Side dead? How are you the only busy one? Where were the others?” Huo Siqian was furious.
“The others all have their own things to do, I was just…”
“I feel like I should withdraw my funds from this place and open up a Huo Corporation Hospital. Or else they’re going to keep ordering you around until you suffer from gastric perforation,” Huo Siqian shouted.
“I won’t work for you if you open up a hospital anyways,” Huo Mian refuted on purpose.
She sounded like a child throwing a tantrum…
Huo Siqian was furious, but he smiled when he saw how stubborn Huo Mian was being.
“Qin Chu’s so rich, can’t you just live off of him? Why are you still working?”
“That doesn’t have anything to do with money. I want to be independent. I’m a person, not someone’s accessory.”
“You always have your reasons, even if they don’t make sense. Why does a woman like you exist? You’re so weird it’s scary, and you’re as stubborn as a cow. Plus, you’re super disobedient.”
After Huo Siqian gave Huo Mian a talking to, he turned around to leave…
Huo Mian’s mouth twitched. Then, she got up as well and went back to work in her office…
– Twenty minutes later –
Huo Siqian opened the door to Huo Mian’s office and placed something on her desk.
Huo Mian glanced at the food – it was vegetable congee and corn patties, all good for the stomach.
“Did you… poison this?” Huo Mian thought it was weird that Huo Siqian was being so nice to her.
“I poured arsenic in here, why? Do you have the guts to eat it?” Huo Siqian smiled as he took off the lid of the congee bowl.
Then, he pushed it in front of Huo Mian. “If your stomach isn’t good, you need to take care of yourself. How can you forget to eat? Are you an idiot?”
“You’re the idiot,” Huo Mian refuted.
“Yeah, I’m the idiot. Eat up and stop with the nonsense.”
Then, he grabbed Huo Mian’s documents and placed them aside…
He sat across from Huo Mian and watched as she ate.
Huo Mian took sip after sip under Huo Siqian’s gaze. She drank the congee and ate some corn patties.
Her stomach felt much better and warmer, and no longer growled in pain…
“Why are you being so nice to me?” Huo Mian asked, word for word.
