To My Dear Mr. Huo - Chapter 661 - Why Are You In Such A Hurry
Chapter 661: Why Are You In Such A Hurry
Zhan Haoze was only exploiting her love. No matter how spineless she was and how much she loved him, she couldn’t stand him treating her like this.
Zhan Haoze’s voice was a little low. If one looked carefully, they would find that his expression wasn’t very good.
Shi Mengwan noticed that this was the first time he called her by her full name.
Feeling a little sad, she blinked her eyes and suppressed the feeling of wanting to cry.
“Zhan Haoze, are you trying to say that you don’t treat me as a prostitute? Then what are you doing now? Are you trying to say that you like me?”
Did he think that she would believe him?
Zhan Haoze didn’t like to hear her say that word, yet she insisted on saying it twice in a row.
After she finished questioning him, Zhan Haoze lowered his head and wanted to kiss her.
This time, Shi Mengwan made up her mind not to let him have his way. She stepped back and used force to push him away.
Zhan Haoze’s hands were placed on her shoulders. With a push, his body moved back a little.
“Zhan Haoze, you can go.”
Her feet had already recovered from the numbness. She stood up now and tried her best not to lose her imposing manner, even though she had already suffered a crushing defeat.
Zhan Haoze didn’t speak. He bent down to look at her again and placed his hands on both sides of the armrest of her chair.
The scene in front of her was really romantically ambiguous. Shi Mengwan pressed her body tightly against the back and stared at Zhan Haoze defensively.
She didn’t speak, and he didn’t speak either. He just stared at her.
Shi Mengwan felt very uncomfortable. She blinked her eyes and was still thinking about how to drive this person away.
“Peng!” A sudden sound came from outside and made Shi Mengwan freeze for a moment.
She turned around and realized that someone was setting off fireworks outside. It was only then that she remembered.
Today was New Year’s Day. A new year, a new day. Although setting off fireworks was prohibited, there were still some people who didn’t take these rules seriously.
“Peng Peng!” The fireworks rose into the sky once again. They were extremely brilliant.
When Shi Mengwan rented this place, half of the reason was because it had a good view. There were a few department stores across from it, and this place happened to be an intersection.
Someone set off fireworks right in the middle of the intersection. The moment the fireworks lit up, it also successfully broke the current stalemate between the two of them.
Shi Mengwan didn’t watch for too long. When she realized that Zhan Haoze seemed to be in a daze, she knew that an opportunity had come.
Shi Mengwan took advantage of the moment when Zhan Haoze turned his head and quickly got up. She went around to the back of the office desk.
Her feet were still a little numb, but she chose to ignore it. She picked up her bag and car keys and prepared to leave.
Her footsteps were a little fast. At this moment, she couldn’t care about anything else and quickly went outside.
When her hand touched the door, Zhan Haoze didn’t follow. She went downstairs and when she walked to the door, he didn’t seem to follow either.
She walked out of the company door and stopped. No matter what, the door had to be locked.
When she turned around, she saw Zhan Haoze following her down. She was shocked and instinctively took a step back.
When she saw him coming out, she closed the door and went to the elevator.
The corridor was very quiet, so only the footsteps of the two of them could be heard. There was no other way. The stairs were at the corner next to the elevator.
Shi Mengwan stood by the elevator and pressed the button to wait for the elevator to arrive.
When she entered the elevator, Shi Mengwan had a moment of hesitation, but it was only for a moment.
She went in and stood at the position where the button was pressed, theen pressed the first floor.
Zhan Haoze followed her in. He didn’t speak, and she didn’t speak either. She didn’t want to look at him, but the wall of the elevator was a mirror.
She didn’t need to look back to see the man’s figure.
Zhan Haoze’s figure was really good. His black trench coat made him look imposing, but he was as handsome as a model.
Tall and strong, he had an inverted triangle figure, and a pair of long legs that were too slender. Further up, she withdrew her gaze and didn’t look at Zhan Haoze.
She felt that after what had happened just now, he should have given up. That was good.
It wasn’t until she got into the car that Shi Mengwan felt that it was wishful thinking. She sat in the driver’s seat and looked at Zhan Haoze in the passenger seat.
“Zhan Haoze, please get out of the car.”
Zhan Haoze sat still while Shi Mengwan gritted her teeth. “Zhan Haoze, I’ll say it again. I’m not a frivolous woman.”
The anger on her face was too obvious. Zhan Haoze glanced at her. His voice very soft, he said,
“I’m not either.”
“I’m not a prostitute, and I don’t want to be Chen Feifei’s substitute.”
With suppressed anger, she couldn’t help but raise her voice.
When Zhan Haoze heard Chen Feifei’s name, the expression on his face couldn’t help but flash with a trace of disgust.
That emotion came and went quickly. Shi Mengwan didn’t see it clearly.
She thought he didn’t hear it, so she didn’t mind saying it again. “Zhan Haoze, I’ll say it again. I’m not a prostitute. I’m not a frivolous woman.”
“What about before?” Zhan Haoze suddenly came closer and stared at her face.
Shi Mengwan’s lips opened and closed, then closed and opened again. Under his overly sharp gaze, she gave in first.
“I’ve said it before. I mistook you for someone else.” If she said this, any man wouldn’t be able to stand it and would leave, right?
When Zhan Haoze said this, Shi Mengwan blinked her eyes. It took her some time to understand what he meant.
Zhan Haoze didn’t say anything. Instead, he closed his eyes and relaxed his body, as if he wanted to sleep.
Shi Mengwan called out and realized that Zhan Haoze didn’t look like he wanted to open his eyes at all. She became more and more frustrated.
After a stalemate for nearly three minutes, when there was another burst of fireworks outside. She finally couldn’t help but start the car.
Forget it. On the first day of the New Year, she told herself that she just didn’t want to have a conflict with Zhan Haoze on such a day.
The car stopped at her apartment building. She turned around and was about to call Zhan Haoze when she realized that he seemed to have really fallen asleep.
Shi Mengwan was about to open her mouth, but she saw the dark circles under Zhan Haoze’s eyes.
She hadn’t noticed it before, but now, she saw that Zhan Haoze’s face didn’t look very good. There was dark stubble on his lower jaw.
It seemed like he really hadn’t rested well.
Shi Mengwan didn’t speak. Through the sleeping face in front of her, she seemed to see the fifteen-year-old Qiao Ze again.
It was also New Year’s Day, the first new year that they had spent together.
She left home. Although she missed him, she was still a child. If there were other things to distract her attention, she wouldn’t have the time to think about home.
It was the same on New Year’s Day that year.
The pollution wasn’t as serious as it was now, and there was no ban on fireworks in Lin City.
Not only was there no ban, but there was also a fireworks party on New Year’s Day in a park that had just been built in Lin City.
The reason she knew about it was because the people living nearby were on vacation at that time. She heard people talking about it.
She was only twelve years old, so she wanted to see it too. She had talked about it during dinner with her Dear Brother.
Of course, she just wanted to. She didn’t really have to go.
The park was very far from the bungalow they lived in. It would take them at least an hour to get there, not counting the two buses they had to take. It was too much.
Most importantly, there weren’t as many subway lines at that time as there were now. There were only two subway lines.
It was already very late after the fireworks show. If they wanted to come back, there would be no bus, so they could only take a taxi back.
Their financial situation at that time didn’t allow them to go to the fireworks show at all.
She could only say it nonchalantly. The youth didn’t pay attention to her at that time, but the next day, which was New Year’s Day, he took her out in the afternoon.
“Dear Brother, where are we going?”
After being together for a few months, Shi Mengwan called the youth Dear Brother more and more smoothly.
“I can’t guess.” Shi Mengwan shook her head. Today was the first day of the New Year’s. She looked at the streets. There were really a lot of people.
The bus was a little crowded. She almost fell down during two turns.
“Be careful. You hold me.”
The young man’s voice had gotten better after the past few months, but it was still a little hoarse and unpleasant to hear.
She looked at him. He was taller than her, and his hand was holding onto the pull ring. She pursed her lips and pulled his hand directly.
When the bus made another turn, her body fell to the side again.
The young man used his hand that wasn’t holding onto the pull ring to hold her. Although he was small and thin, his strength wasn’t small.
She was trapped in his arms and protected by him. No matter how the people behind her swayed and squeezed, she didn’t fall to the side again.
When she raised her head to look at him, she felt extremely at ease.
If not for her Dear Brother, she would have gone home long ago, but because of him, she always felt at ease.
She lowered her head and smiled happily.
“What are you smiling about?”
Shi Mengwan shook her head. When they arrived at their destination, she realized that they had come to the park where the fireworks party would be held.
“You, you have tickets?”
As far as she knew, because there would be a fireworks party on this day, the park that was usually opened needed tickets to be able to entered today.
More than ten years ago, the cheapest ticket would have cost more than a hundred, and the ones inside were even more expensive.
The youth held her hand. “Come with me. You can see it without a ticket.”
What did he mean?
Shi Mengwan had been following the youth all this time, and only later did she find out.
Near the park, there was a building that had just started construction. One of the buildings had already been completed, but it had yet to be inspected and completed.
The young man was very daring. Under the dim light of the night, he brought her up to the roof.
The night wind was very strong and very cold. From where they sat, they could see the park opposite.
“It’ll start in a while.” When the young man went out, he carried a bag. At that time, she didn’t understand why he carried a bag.
It was only now that she understood. The young man took out a pair of binoculars from inside and gave it to her.
“Use this to look.”
Shi Mengwan smiled. With the binoculars, she could see some of the performances in the park very clearly. It was very loud, and they could hear it from here as well.
She was very happy, especially since there was a group that she used to like very much. She could not help but turn around and show it to the youth.
However, she realized that the youth wasn’t watching the performances in the park, but looking at her instead.
Was there something dirty on her face?
“It’s nothing. You can watch if you like.”
The young man turned his face away. It was too dark at night, so she did not see it. The young man’s ears were also slightly red.
She was just holding the binoculars and watching with great interest.
The young man had not only prepared the binoculars, but also snacks and water. These were all things that little girls would like.
When the fireworks party started, the binoculars were no longer needed. Because they were very close, she could see them very clearly.
There were all kinds of fireworks, colorful and dazzling.
She had never seen so many forms of fireworks. She was very excited to see them, but she could not help but feel a chill.
The young man looked at her, just like when he was on the bus, and wrapped her body into his arms.
He was so thin, but his arms were so warm. She didn’t feel cold, but she was more and more interested.
The scene that night was like an extremely brilliant dream, and she would never forget it for the rest of her life.
The fireworks party ended, and there were no more buses. The young man actually took a taxi to take her back.
At that time, she wanted to ask him where the money came from. But since the young man didn’t say, she didn’t ask.
When the car stopped outside the alley, she was a little sleepy and wanted to sleep. She had always been very regular. When it was time, she would go to sleep.
The young man didn’t wake her up. Instead, he carried her on his back and carried her home just like that.
Her thoughts came back to her from the drowsiness that day. Shi Mengwan realized that Zhan Haoze had woken up at some point.
She retracted her gaze, bit her lip, and quickly got out of the car.
This time, when Zhan haoze followed behind her, she didn’t ask him to leave again. She knew that it would be useless.
When she entered the bathroom to take a shower, Shi Mengwan looked at herself in the mirror and felt a little conflicted.
She bit her lip. Why couldn’t she make up her mind to resolve something that she knew was wrong?
Forget it. Today was the first day of the New Year. If there was anything else, she would wait until after today.
Shi Mengwan told herself that after today, she would definitely, definitely chase Zhan Haoze away.
Even though she knew that she couldn’t do anything to Zhan Haoze at all.
To Shi Mengwan’s surprise, when she took a shower and returned to her room, Zhan Haoze was already lying on the bed.
His eyes were closed, and he seemed to be asleep again. Was he very sleepy?
Shi Mengwan wanted to ask, but she felt that she couldn’t get anything out of him. She went to bed and slept. Just as she turned off the lights, Zhan Haoze’s hand reached out.
Her body instantly stiffened. She didn’t like this. She didn’t like the fact that every time Zhan Haoze came, he would have sex with her. She didn’t like the passion he had on the bed and the coldness under the bed.
What surprised her was that Zhan Haoze only hugged her.
Sensing that her body was stiff, he buried his face into her neck and gently rubbed against her neck.
“I’m very sleepy. Sleep.”
He lowered his voice and didn’t say another word. The man seemed to be really sleepy and wanted to sleep.
Shi Mengwan waited for a while and heard the man’s long breathing.
She was stunned for a moment before she couldn’t help but look up at the man’s face. The lights in the room had already been turned off and the curtains were drawn. She couldn’t see clearly and it was pitch black.
She thought of the Black Shadow on the man’s face and the fatigue on his face.
A flash of heartache flashed past her heart, but she tried her best to restrain herself and tell herself that it had nothing to do with her.
However, no matter how much she tried to calm herself down, Shi Mengwan still raised her hand.
Just as she was about to touch the man’s face, she retracted her hand. She closed her eyes and pressed her face against his heart while he was unconscious.
She listened to his steady heartbeat and fell asleep.
When Shi Mengwan woke up in the morning, Zhan Haoze was still asleep.
He seemed to have really fallen asleep. She stared at his sleeping face for a while before gently pulling away from his embrace.
After washing up, Shi Mengwan realized that Zhan Haoze was still asleep. She ignored him and went straight to the kitchen.
After searching for a round of ingredients, Shi Mengwan decided to make the simplest breakfast. After taking one set of ingredients, she thought of the person who had fallen asleep in the room and took two more sets of ingredients.
She remembered that he had always had a big appetite.
Zhan Haoze didn’t sleep too long in the room. He was woken up by the ringtone of his phone.
He picked up the phone. It was Chen Feifei.
“Brother Hao, when are you coming back?”
“Feifei?” Zhan Haoze looked at the time and sat up.
“Brother Hao.” Chen Feifei seemed to hear something different on the other end of the phone. “What’s wrong with your voice? Are you sleeping?”
Zhan Haoze shook his head, and his voice returned to its usual calm. “Is There Something Wrong?”
“Of course there’s something wrong. It’s new year’s Day, and it’s New Year, and you’re actually going on a business trip. Why didn’t you come back to accompany me?”
There was silence. Zhan Haoze didn’t answer, and Chen Feifei didn’t really want him to. “Dad is too overbearing. Why did he let you go on a business trip so far away by yourself? You still have to go for so many days. Are the people the company employ all useless?”
Zhan Haoze’s voice had changed. Chen Feifei gritted her teeth. “Alright, I know that this is because dad trusts you, but I’m just not happy. I want you to accompany me.”
“Wait for me to come back.” Zhan Haoze’s voice was indifferent. “Is there anything else?”
“Yes.” Chen Feifei thought of the news she had received earlier. “I heard that the marketing manager of the partner company is very beautiful. Do you think she’s prettier or me?”
Zhan Haoze didn’t want to answer this question at all. “Is that all you want to ask? Then I have to hang up. I have a meeting later.”
“Brother Hao.” Her expression ferocious, Chen Feifei gritted her teeth. Zhan Haoze wasn’t in front of her, so she wasn’t afraid of being seen by him.
Zhan Haoze hung up the phone and went back to sleep. However, his phone rang again.
He glanced at the number and picked it up.
“How is it? Is it convenient over there?”
“Everything is going well.” Tang Hua’s voice sounded on the other end of the phone. “Everything that you asked for has been resolved.”
“Yes.” Zhan Haoze knew that it would definitely be resolved.
“Speaking of which, why are you in such a hurry to return to Lin City?”
Tang Hua realized that he didn’t understand his boss’ recent actions very well. “You compressed the official business that would take a week to settle to three days and rushed back to Lin City today. Why? Are you going to accompany that little princess of the Chen Family?”
Zhan Haoze rubbed the space between his eyebrows and didn’t answer Tang Hua’s question. “Settle everything and strike while the iron is hot. Take over the territory of City H as well.”
Upon the mention of serious matters, Tang Hua’s attitude became much more serious. “Okay, it’s just that it’s the New Year’s, and they have a lot of movement here.”
“It’s better to have more movement. It’s best to stir up the water so that it’s easier for us to do things when the time comes.”
“Yes.” Tang Hua nodded. Then, he thought of something. “By the way, sixth brother has been arguing about going to Lin City to help you. Look at this –”
“Don’t let him come.” Zhan haoze thought of something. “Let him go to Qingcheng.”
The name that came out of his mouth didn’t change Zhan Haoze’s decision. “Not only sixth brother, but also fourth brother and seventh brother. Let them go. Just say that I said it.”
“Tell fourth brother that I’m ready to pull in the net.”
“Okay.” Tang Hua’s voice had a hint of excitement. Zhan Haoze hung up the phone, but he was no longer sleepy.
He was about to get up when he realized that Shi Mengwan was standing at the door of the room and looking at him.
The space between his eyebrows moved slightly, but he quickly regained his calmness.
Shi Mengwan bit her lip and moved her gaze away from Zhan Haoze’s firm chest.
She turned around and left quickly. If it wasn’t for Zhan Haoze’s hearing, he wouldn’t have been able to hear Shi Mengwan say the word “Eat”.
The dining room was very quiet. Shi Mengwan’s house wasn’t big. The dining room was connected to the living room.
She sat at one end of the dining table while Zhan Haoze sat opposite her.
She placed two sandwiches in front of him and a glass of milk.
She ate the sandwich in front of her and didn’t look at Zhan Haoze. How similar was the scene in front of her to that of thirteen years ago?
The scene was similar, but the person was different.
Shi Mengwan suddenly lost her appetite. She casually ate a few mouthfuls and finished the sandwich.
She got up and didn’t return to her room. Without looking at Zhan Haoze, she went straight to the living room and turned on the television.
She rarely watched TV. At this time, the New Year’s Eve party the day before yesterday was being replayed on the TV.
She didn’t know when it started, but some satellite TV stations competed to host the New Year’s Eve party every year.
She didn’t change the channel, but just stared at the TV in a daze until a sexy female voice sang in a very sultry voice.
[ There are so many scenes, so many romantic scenes, so many people’s hearts are sad, so good friends and good farewells, so many days of watching it. You also liked that kiss just now, right?
Otherwise, why didn’t you let go of my hand? You said you really wanted to take me back to your hometown..
Slowly like you, slowly become intimate, slowly talk about yourself, slowly walk together with you, I want to slowly cooperate with you, slowly give me to you. ]
Shi Mengwan couldn’t help but start to daydream again. Those scenes weren’t really romantic, but she really wanted to slowly walk together with Zhan Haoze, and slowly give herself to her.
She turned to look at the direction of the dining table and found that Zhan Haoze had finished eating at some point. He got up and walked to the sofa.
She was looking at him, and he was also looking at her. He also saw the television.
Perhaps Shi Mengwan’s gaze was too direct, but Zhan Haoze walked to her side and sat down.
He pulled her body into his arms, lowered his head, and kissed her lips directly and accurately.
Shi Mengwan blinked her eyes, but she didn’t reject him. Zhan Haoze pressed her body onto the sofa. Shi Mengwan bore his weight, raised her hand, and wrapped it around his neck.
The sofa wasn’t small, but it was a little difficult to accommodate two adults.
In order not to fall, she hugged him tightly, and he hugged her body tightly as well.
The living room wasn’t air-conditioned. Shi Mengwan was actually a little cold, but it only lasted for a moment, and she quickly heated up.
When her clothes were torn and her body was bumped into by him, Shi Mengwan’s heart was filled with bitterness. At this moment, she suddenly realized something.
Zhan Haoze wasn’t the only one who liked to do this. In fact, she also liked it.
Because only at this moment, when he became one with her, would she feel that he was her Dear Brother.
Or only then, Dear Brother was hers.
