Huo Zijun smelled the fishy scent coming from his clothes and almost died of anger.
Damn Qiao Yanjue, he really was too petty!
So he just laughed at him a little bit… Did he need to be so childish and get revenge?
After wiping his hands on Huo Zijun’s clothes, Qiao Yanjue appeared pure and innocent, as if he had only just realized that he hadn’t washed his hands after peeling the shrimp.
“Oh, I’m sorry. I was in such a hurry that I forgot to wash my hands,” he said without the slightest hint of apology, then stepped away and headed for the bathroom.
Huo Zijun gritted his teeth but could only follow him.
Xia Xibei ate by herself in the room and waited for a while before the two men returned.
Xia Xibei was puzzled upon seeing Huo Zijun’s grim face and his clothes still a bit wet.
“What’s wrong?” she asked.
“It’s nothing.” Qiao Yanjue sat down and explained, “His stomach felt weird, so he doesn’t look too good.”
Huo Zijun remained silent.
Xia Xibei was a little worried, “What if I took a look?”
“No, I’m fine,” Huo Zijun refused through clenched teeth.
“Okay then.” Xia Xibei didn’t insist upon it. Huo Zijun was a doctor, so he knew how to take care of himself.
After sitting down, Qiao Yanjue continued to offer Xia Xibei food.
Huo Zijun watched coldly from the side, his mouth moving but saying nothing.
Since Qiao Yanjue had already made his decision, he could only support him.
However, he still felt that Qiao Yanjue’s attentive appearance was horrific.
Xia Xibei had no idea that so much had happened in the time they had been out, and she once again refused Qiao Yanjue’s service.
“Don’t give me more food, I’m almost full.”
Seeing that Xia Xibei was almost done eating, Qiao Yanjue did not force her and began to eat himself.
He was fast. In just a few minutes, he had stopped eating as he was full.
Being led by him, Huo Zijun’s movements also sped up a lot.
Finally, they were finished eating, and Huo Zijun did not want to stay any longer.
He was afraid he would lose his composure if he stayed.
“Then I’ll go first. Little Xia, when you have news, contact me.”
After saying that, Huo Zijun took off in a hurry.
He had to go back and talk to others about this matter. He couldn’t be shocked by himself!
Qiao Yanjue’s expression did not change as he looked at Huo Zijun’s departing back.
He knew that Huo Zijun would definitely go back and talk to his other two best friends about this.
He didn’t stop him either, because he was sure that they would have the right sense.
“Alright, let’s go,” Qiao Yanjue said.
“Ok,” Xia Xibei nodded.
The two of them walked together to the garage. When they reached the car, they saw Uncle Chen standing in front of the car with a bitter face. He was even on the verge of tears when he saw them coming.
Xia Xibei was immediately concerned seeing such a pitiful look on an elder, asking, “What’s wrong, Uncle Chen?”
“I’m sorry, Miss Xia!”
Uncle Chen immediately gave her a 90-degree bow, which scared her.
“What is it?”
Old Chen straightened up with an apologetic face, “I was careless just now and spilled food on those clothes of yours.”
“What?” Xia Xibei’s eyes widened. “Clothes?”
Uncle Chen nodded and took out a bag from behind him.
After opening it, the corners of Xia Xibei’s mouth spasmed.
This was not a matter of spilling food on the clothes, but the clothes falling into a pile of food!
The previously red-colored uniform was covered with grease and various food stains; it was a complete mess!
“I’m sorry!” Uncle Chen exclaimed, ready to bow and apologize again.
“No, no, no!” Xia Xibei immediately reached out and pulled him up, comforting him. “It’s okay, it’s just clothes.”
