“What’s wrong, Yan?”
Hearing Lu Yan’s quiet voice, Huo Mian knew she had something on her mind .
“Sis, I’m only a little over 20… Is it too early for me to get married?”
“Get married?” Huo Mian was confused .
“You know…um… Psycho Qiao…” Lu Yan explained .
“You’re getting married to Qiao Fei?” Huo Mian finally understood her meaning .
“I think we can’t live like this forever . So…”
“It’s a good thing… I told you before, you’re a girl and will need a family sooner or later…”
She only heard silence over the phone…
“Hello? Yan, are you listening?”
“I’m listening, Sis . ”
“Have you talked about it with Qiao Fei?”
“No, the idea just popped up in my mind . I’m restless and torn, so I wanted to talk to you . ”
“Did you fight again?”
“No, we’re good . ”
“Then why are you restless?” Huo Mian didn’t understand .
“Sis, I don’t know if you ever felt like this: when you feel happy, you’d also feel uneasy and be afraid that the happiness is just an illusion, afraid that bad things would happen . It’s an uneasiness without a reason . ”
“I understand . ”
Huo Mian had studied psychology and often talked about these issues with Jiang Xiaowei; she certainly understood this feeling .
“Yeah . This is how I feel right now . It feels horrible… I’m sulky… I want to be with him, but I also feel I have no future . Maybe I won’t feel happy even after getting married and having children because I don’t want my children to be hunted down… living the life I have right now . ”
“You’re thinking too far ahead… The most important thing is your marriage with Qiao Fei . What does he say?”
“I didn’t ask him; I don’t know what he thinks about it . ”
“Are you sure he’s the one?”
“Yeah . In the past years, no one but he could pique my interest . ”
“Good, but marriage involves two people . You must talk to him about it . If you truly think you’re ready, I fully support you… I’ll pay for all the fees for your wedding . ”
Huo Mian said generously . At the thought that Lu Yan would get married and have a family, she felt very happy .
“Hahaha! Forget it . I’m way richer than you, sis . You don’t even spend much money on yourself, I don’t want to empty your pockets with my wedding . In fact, I’m not sure about it yet; I’m just toying with the idea . So don’t take it seriously . Don’t tell Dad about it . ”
“Okay . I won’t tell him . ”
“Has Dad called you lately?”
“No . ” Huo Mian sounded a bit disappointed .
“He must be busy . He hasn’t contacted me, either . After I finish the business in Syria, I’ll go to the States and see him . ”
“Okay . ”
“Then I won’t take more of your time . Sis, I’m fine now . Talk to you later . ”
Before Huo Mian could reply, Lu Yan ended the call .
But Huo Mian felt happy that Yan would call her when she was unhappy or dispirited .
At least, Lu Yan had begun to depend on her sister emotionally .
“Vice Director, Miss Zeng wants to see you,” a young nurse from the Orthopedics Department knocked on her door and reported .
“Okay, got it . ”
Standing up, she straightened her white coat and walked toward the VIP ward in the Orthopedics Department .
Zeng Rou could now walk but very slowly .
“How are you feeling today?” Huo Mian sat beside her .
“Huo Mian, I want to be dismissed from the hospital . ” Zeng Rou had tears in her eyes .
“You haven’t fully recovered yet . Didn’t you say you’d stay here until your leg is perfectly good?” Huo Mian was surprised .
