Chapter 101: Awe
"Eh? Mian, I think someone's calling for you."
"I hear it too," Huo Mian replied quietly.
"Huo Mian, where are you, come out!" The hysterical female voice came from a woman who was also wearing a white lab coat.
Her long hair was curled in waves, and she had above-average looks. Her face was slathered in seductive makeup, but her complexion was extremely unsightly.
"Mian, right there. Huh, isn't she a nurse from the ophthalmology department?" Huang Yue pointed at the door.
Huo Mian turned around, her demeanor remaining calm upon spotting He Man.
He Man spotted Huo Mian at the same time, and she made a beeline straight for her aggressively.
"Mian, she looks like she's up to no good! Be careful," Huang Yue warned her quietly.
Huo Mian nodded, not saying anything.
"Huo Mian, get up."
"Is there a problem?"
"Of course there's a problem! Do you think I've come to have a heart-to-heart with you?"
"Sorry, I don't have time to have a heart-to-heart with you, we're not that close." Huo Mian sat down and continued eating, not even acknowledging her.
He Man's temper flared up, and she pointed at Huo Mian while screeching, "Stop pretending! Tell me, are you harassing my Zhiyuan again?"
"Your Zhiyuan? When did this happen?"
He Man slightly paused and then said, "Don't pretend you don't know, Zhiyuan and I started dating a long time ago. You've known this for a while."
Huo Mian nodded slightly, and then she replied in a pondering manner, "Oh, so last week when I went over to his apartment, the person bumping uglies with him in the bedroom was you?"
"What? Last weekend?" He Man's complexion paled.
"Oh? Wasn't it you? Unless..." Huo Mian probed.
"Of course… it was me." Anyone could tell how forced He Man's words were.
"Since you so clearly know that we're together, why did you still go looking for him? Didn't you already break up?"
"Yeah, I went to ask him for my 60,000 yuan deposit on the apartment. We were originally planning to get married, so I offered some of my own money for the down payment."
"Oh really? I've never heard Zhiyuan speak about it," He Man said proudly.
"Really? What a shame. It looks like you two haven't progressed to that stage yet."
"You… stop distorting my words." He Man ran out of words to say. Initially, she had arrogantly came to condemn her, but she didn't think that the normally sweet Huo Mian could be so sharp-tongued. Each of her sentences was as sharp as a dagger, causing her to be at a loss for words.
"Tell me, did you bruise Zhiyuan's head?"
"What gave you that right? What made you think you had the right to hit Zhiyuan? What right do you have, as a dumped ex-girlfriend, to interfere in Zhiyuan's matters? I knew it! You probably hit him because he wouldn't get back together with you when you asked, didn't you?"
Huo Mian's eyes grew cold, and she lifted her head to ask, "Did Ning Zhiyuan tell you that?"
"Zhiyuan didn't say it, but I'm sure that's what happened. Everyone at the hospital knows what kind of person you are."
"Mian is a great person, everyone in the OB/GYN department knows that," Huang Yue interjected.
"This has nothing to do with you, shut up," He Man pointed at Huang Yue and growled.
"Are you done speaking rubbish? If you're done, then please leave. We're in the middle of a meal, and I don't want to ruin my appetite," Huo Mian asked her to leave because she didn't want to deal with He Man's unreasonable harassment any longer.
Because everyone was staring, she felt like a clown. This didn't agree with Huo Mian's usual low-profile character at all.
"Eat eat eat, I'll show you how to eat, you b*tch." Then, in front of everyone, He Man flipped Huo Mian's plate. The food scattered all over the floor, with some splattering onto Huo Mian's clean white lab coat, causing everyone to stare in shock. No one anticipated that He Man would do something so extreme.
