In front of others, Huo Zijun had always been a mild-mannered gentleman. He rarely spoke loudly, much less cursed.
But now, he almost laughed himself to death when seeing Qiao Yanjue like this!
“I thought this was already a done deal—that you two were fighting together! I never even considered it would be unrequited love!”
Huo Zijun slapped his leg and laughed without any care for his image.
Qiao Yanjue’s face dimmed as he said quietly, “I advise you to be calm.”
It was so rare to encounter such things, how could he be calm?
Huo Zijun laughed for a while longer. He only pinched his thigh and held back his laughter when he saw that Qiao Yanjue was about to have an outburst.
Qiao Yanjue was on the verge of fury, and he couldn’t keep on testing him.
Huo Zijun wiped away the tears of laughter from the corners of his eyes, cleared his throat, and took a few deep breaths before suppressing the laughter in his heart.
The temperature around Qiao Yanjue had dropped to zero degrees, and his face was even more dangerous looking than before.
Huo Zijun’s heart skipped. He quickly stopped his mocking, put on a serious face, and before Qiao Yanjue exploded, asked seriously, “Then what are you going to do? I see that she doesn’t seem to care much for you.”
Speaking of which, Huo Zijun almost laughed once again.
This was amazing!
In the past, there were many people who liked Qiao Yanjue, those young ladies trying very hard to capture his attention.
But no matter what kind of girls they were, he simply drove them away.
Now, it was finally his turn to be rejected.
Thinking about Qiao Yanjue’s previous attentive attitude, Huo Zijun couldn’t help but admire Xia Xibei.
She was a master at conquering him! How did she do it?
“If she’s not into me now, she will be eventually.” Qiao Yanjue took a few deep breaths and didn’t argue with Huo Zijun. Then he glanced at Huo Zijun, “Besides, she’s still young, only seventeen. I don’t want to scare her away.”
Huo Zijun’s mouth twitched while he thought to himself.
You also know that she is only 17 years old and not a grown-up? You’re a 24-year-old “old man” coveting a teenage girl! How monstrous!
Moreover, Huo Zijun doubted Qiao Yanjue’s claim that he “didn’t want to scare Xia Xibei away.”
He felt that Qiao Yanjue simply didn’t dare to say anything!
Qiao Yanjue saw his expression and shot him a warning look.
Thinking of Qiao Yanjue’s ferocity, Huo Zijun hurriedly displayed an innocent smile.
He was unlucky to be Qiao Yanjue’s brother, so what else could he do? He could only shut up and try to maintain Qiao Yanjue’s brilliant image!
“Just don’t say anything,” Qiao Yanjue reminded him.
“I got it.”
Huo Zijun made a motion of zipping up his mouth, looking very innocuous. On the inside, however, he chuckled to himself.
Even if they really talked this out, Xia Xibei would not believe it, right?
Xia Xibei didn’t seem to have any interest in Qiao Yanjue at all!
In Huo Zijun’s opinion, Xia Xibei was an independent girl who did not want to rely on others at all.
Most importantly, she had strength!
Even if the Qiao family was a prestigious family, and Qiao Yanjue was worth tens of billions, Xia Xibei would not necessarily be interested in him.
So, it really wasn’t easy for Qiao Yanjue to pursue her!
As he thought of this, Huo Zijun couldn’t help but cry tears of sympathy for Qiao Yanjue.
Predictably, his road to love would be difficult!
“Okay, let’s go back.” Qiao Yanjue patted Huo Zijun’s clothes and warned, “You know what to say and what not to say, right?”
“I understand…” Huo Zijun nodded his head.
Suddenly, he smelled something fishy, and instantly became angry.
“Bastard! How dare you use my clothes to wipe your hands?!”
