Chapter 81: Being Courted
"Do we know each other?" Huo Mian asked, confused.
The male doctor wore a pair of black frame glasses and looked quite shy…
"You might not know me. Let me introduce myself, my name is Zhu Cheng. I am one of the doctors in the Ophthalmology Clinic. I've seen you many times when you visited our clinic. You were Dr. Ning's girlfriend, right? I heard that you guys broke up recently so I figured that my chance was here. I've liked you for a long time. You are so gentle, cute, and beautiful, not to mention you have a stunning figure. You are my type."
The male doctor rambled on for a while before handing over the bouquet of roses to Huo Mian.
Huo Mian was stunned…. it seemed a little too soap opera-like?
The nurses behind her could barely contain their laughter…
Huo Mian looked at the roses and then back at Dr. Zhu and said, "I'm sorry, but you're not my type."
"What's your type? I can change." Dr. Zhu would not give up.
Huo Mian waved her hand and said, "No no, you don't have to change. What's your type, I'll change to something else. Anyways, thank you. I can't accept the flowers."
"Huo Mian, please consider what I said."
"No, it's okay. I'm in a rush and need to get to work. I'm going to go now. Thank you." Then, without waiting for Dr. Zhu's response, Huo Mian rushed out the side door and hid in the OB/GYN clinic.
Dr. Zhu was clearly disappointed. He stood with his head hanging outside of the door.
Huang Yue walked up to him and said, "Hey, Mr. Dork, stop thinking about Huo Mian. You're not her type. Go home and take a good look at yourself in the mirror. It's not your fault that you're ugly, but, it's wrong for you to come out and scare others."
Then, Huang Yue ran away in laughter.
Dr. Zhu was slightly stunned. After a while, he slowly walked away with the roses in his hand.
He had had a crush on Huo Mian for a long time. In the past, when he saw Huo Mian speaking to Ning Zhiyuan, he noticed that she had dimples when she smiled, giving him a warm feeling. When He Man told him that Huo Mian and Ning Zhiyuan had broken up, he decided to give it a shot and confess his feelings to her.
He never thought that she would not even give him a chance…
True, Dr. Zhu was a little ugly, but that was not the point. Even if it were an incredibly handsome man who stood before her today, she would still say no.
There was already a man who was deeply planted inside her heart since 7 years ago, and no one could replace him.
After Qin Chu gave Huo Mian her afternoon tea, he drove directly to the airport, since he had to catch a flight to another city.
His assistant did not understand what his boss was up to. President Qin had been working the entire morning, not even eating lunch before going out, and only arriving at the airport in time to board the plane. Assistant Yang felt like President Qin was always acting extremely mysteriously.
Maybe he has a mistress? Is it that woman from last time? Yang thought.
"President Qin, this is the contract you'll be signing with the client during your meeting this afternoon. Here are the documents, you will be able to take a detailed look when you're on the plane."
"President Qin, you haven't had lunch. I wanted to order take-out for you but it's already too late. Why don't you have something to eat on the plane? I heard that the lunch on first-class is quite delicious."
"Okay." Qin Chu nodded. He seemed to be in a good mood.
"Did you book the return flight?"
"Um…not yet. The only return flight is after 12 AM and you won't land until 3 AM. I'm afraid that you won't be able to rest well, so I booked you a hotel. It'll be better if you fly back tomorrow."
"That's not necessary. Cancel the hotel and book the 12 AM flight."
"President Qin, that'll be too much of a rush. You will be very tired."
"Book the flight." After speaking those three words, Qin Chu turned around and walked towards the VIP entrance.
Assistant Yang looked at his stubborn President speechlessly.
How attached was President Qin to his home that he was willing to fly back at midnight? From past observations, the president didn't seem to have a close relationship with his parents...
- First Hospital -
Just as Huo Mian got off work, she received a phone call from a person who said that Qin Chu had asked them to pick her up.
She did not know that Qin Chu had sent bodyguards because he was worried about her safety.
Even though it was only a short trip from the hospital back to their home, Qin Chu was still worried.
"Miss Huo, this way please," said the two bodyguards dressed in black as they pointed to a Mercedes-Benz.
Huo Mian felt like they were making a scene...
When she arrived home, she washed her face. Just as she sat on the sofa to rest, she received a call from her mother.
"Mom, what's the matter?" Huo Mian asked nervously. She was scared that something had happened to her brother.
"Go visit the Huo Family later," Yang Meirong said in a serious tone.
Huo Mian's chest sunk. The Huo family? The family without an ounce of affection or kindness? Did that person ask her to go back?
