Chapter 676: Is It Fun to Be Two-timing?
“Yes.” Zhan Haoze didn’t believe her at all. He only felt that Shi Mengwan’s actions were because he hadn’t visited her for a long time and was throwing a tantrum. “You can call then.”
This person. It was really him. Shi Mengwan suddenly pressed the three numbers. After pressing the numbers, she spoke in fluent English the moment the call connected.
“Hello, I’m calling from hotel XX…”
Before she could finish her sentence, Zhan Haoze snatched her phone away. He looked at her and couldn’t believe that she was serious.
“Shi Mengwan? Do you know what you’re doing?”
“Of course I know what I’m doing. The person who doesn’t know what he’s doing is you.”
She glared at Zhan Haoze. She had been suppressing her uncomfortable emotions for the past few days and didn’t want to suppress them anymore.
“Zhan Haoze, is it fun to be two-timing? Is it fun to bully me like this?”
As she spoke, the anger from knowing that he was engaged surged into her heart. Without thinking, she raised her foot and kicked him again.
Zhan Haoze was shocked by Shi Mengwan’s words just now. He was still thinking about her words, and he didn’t notice that Shi Mengwan really kicked him.
Zhan Haoze was kicked and had no choice but to leave her. Shi Mengwan took this opportunity to quickly get up from the bed and move to the side.
She sat up and looked at Zhan Haoze with a guarded expression and resentment.
“Zhan Haoze, you can’t bully people like this.” Perhaps it was because she had suppressed it for too long, Shi Mengwan’s tone was filled with grievance.
But very quickly, she suppressed this grievance.
Let bygones be bygones. But now, she didn’t want to continue like this.
“Go. I don’t want to see you.”As she spoke, wanting Zhan Haoze to get lost, she pointed at the door.
Zhan Haoze sat on the bed and didn’t move. His brows furrowed slightly, as if he had thought of something.
At this moment, he was still playing dumb. Shi Mengwan nodded and went forward to take the phone. After taking the phone, she quickly backed away, as if she was afraid that Zhan Haoze would pounce on her.
She opened the phone to find yesterday’s news and directly placed it in front of Zhan Haoze.
On the phone screen, Zhan Haoze stood with Chen Feifei, and Chen Yongchang stood beside Chen Feifei. The three of them were smiling brightly.
The caption was the news of their engagement. Shi Mengwan’s gaze was slightly cold as she stared straight at Zhan Haoze.
Since things had come to this point, so what else did he have to say?
He said that he didn’t have anything to do with Chen Feifei, and he asked her to give him time.
She believed him and gave him time, but in the end?
Zhan Haoze’s eyes darkened when he saw the photo. He knew about this photo. He also knew about this news, but he didn’t expect that Shi Mengwan would see it.
“Nothing else to say? If you have nothing else to say, then leave.”
She didn’t want to hear him say it either. Her heart yearned for love, and it was true that she wanted to be together, but she also didn’t want others to look down on her. She didn’t want to be a shameful mistress.
Even if she was the first one, it would still be the same.
She casually threw her phone aside. Shi Mengwan still had things to do tomorrow, so she didn’t want to waste time with Zhan Haoze.
Zhan Haoze got up from the bed and got off. Shi Mengwan thought that he was going to leave, but he walked to her side and reached out to hug her.
She didn’t want him to keep using this trick. Shi Mengwan struggled up and raised her foot to kick Zhan Haoze again. He dodged the kick and Shi Mengwan used her elbow to hit his abdomen.
She heard a muffled groan. She didn’t stop. She didn’t use too much strength. What was he doing this for?
However, Zhan Haoze bent down. She thought he was pretending. “Zhan haoze, get out. I don’t want to see you.”
Zhan Haoze didn’t say anything. His hand had been clutching his abdomen, and his face seemed to be in pain.
Shi Mengwan was calm at first, but when she saw that he was in great pain, the coldness on her face couldn’t hold back anymore.
“Stop pretending. If you’re fine, go out. I don’t want to see you.”
Zhan Haoze shook his head. He reached out to hug her. Only then did Shi Mengwan remember the situation in front of her, and she pushed him hard again.
He was pushed back a step by her, and his back hit the edge of the table in the hotel room. Shi Mengwan’s lips moved. She wanted to say that she was careful, but she realized that she didn’t have much strength at all. He must be faking it.
But when she saw the blood flowing out of Zhan Haoze’s fingers, she was shocked and stepped forward without thinking.
“Are you hurt?”
Zhan Haoze looked up at her. He ignored the blood stains on his body and reached out to hold her in his arms.
“Zhan Haoze, you…” At this time, what was he doing?
“I’m not engaged to her.”
Although everyone thought so, this engagement was the wishful thinking of the Chen Father and daughter.
In the past half a month, there had been frequent movements over there. Some were aimed at him, and some were aimed at Chen Feifei.
It was okay to target Chen Feifei, but only once. After all, Chen Feifei’s uncle was quite influential in C Province.
However, there were a lot of actions aimed at him. Before he decided to come to France, he did it partly on purpose, and partly because he wanted to divert the other party’s attention.
Therefore, when the other party came looking for him, he didn’t dodge. Instead, he directly accepted the other party’s provocation.
The knife in his stomach could be considered as him taking it on purpose. The strength and direction were calculated correctly. It wouldn’t be fatal, but he would suffer a little.
Sure enough, after he was injured, the other party’s movements suddenly stopped. It was probably because he did not expect him to be so “weak” that he would be injured so easily.
It was also because he was injured that the other party’s movements stopped. Only then did he have the time to come to France to look for Shi Mengwan.
However, he didn’t expect that when he came, Shi Mengwan would have such a reaction.
“Where are you hurt?” Shi Mengwan didn’t want to care about whether he was engaged or not.
She remembered that he was very skilled. Ordinary people shouldn’t be able to hurt him, so how did he get hurt?
“A minor injury.”
“Since it’s a minor injury, then go.” Shi Mengwan retreated from his arms and didn’t look at him at all. “Get out.”
Zhan Haoze let go and looked at his abdomen. He came to France wearing a casual suit. Inside was a beige shirt.
At this moment, the shirt was already stained with blood, and there was blood leaking from the gaps between his fingers.
Wanting to tell him to get out again, Shi Mengwan turned her face away. However, she was absent-minded, so she took a step forward and walked in front of Zhan Haoze.
She bent down and unbuttoning the shirt, she directly took Zhan Haoze’s hand away.
She saw that his abdomen was wrapped in a circle of gauze. The gauze was now completely red.
She pursed her lips into a straight line and stared at the wound for a while. She turned around and pressed the front desk, then asked them to send the medical kit up.
When the other party asked if he needed a doctor, she thought about it and agreed.
When the doctor arrived, she asked Zhan Haoze to lie down. “Don’t stand there. Lie down. The doctor will be here soon.”
“You’re not going to chase me away?”
Zhan Haoze’s words made Shi Mengwan look at him. She stared at his face for a while before shaking her head.
“After the doctor sees your injury, you can leave.”
Zhan Haoze’s way of addressing her made Shi Mengwan’s heart skip a beat. Ever since the two of them got together, he hadn’t called her by her name like this.
“I’m not engaged to Chen Feifei.”
Shi Mengwan lowered her head with a look of disbelief.
Zhan Haoze took two steps forward to get closer to her, but she raised her hand. “Don’t move. Lie down.”
The worry in her eyes was too obvious. Zhan Haoze looked at her for a while before finally listening to her and lying down on the bed.
His hand was still pressing on the wound. The bleeding had stopped. Very soon, the hotel attendant brought a doctor up.
Shi Mengwan was worried that Zhan Haoze’s injury was too serious and that she wouldn’t be able to treat it well. When the doctor arrived, she breathed a sigh of relief.
The doctor removed the gauze on Zhan Haoze’s waist. Only then did Shi Mengwan see that there was a wound of about five centimeters on his abdomen.
The wound had already been stitched up, but blood was still oozing faintly.
She wasn’t sure if it was because she had pushed him just now or something else. Her eyes were a little red now.
The doctor treated Zhan Haoze’s wound and bandaged it up. Finally, he instructed her on some precautions.
What surprised Shi Mengwan was that Zhan Haoze could actually speak fluent French. She couldn’t help but look sideways at him.
After sending the doctor away, Shi Mengwan asked the waiter to change the bloody bedsheets. She looked at Zhan Haoze and wanted to chase him away.
Zhan Haoze had already laid down on the bed. Shi Mengwan took two steps forward.
“Zhan Haoze, you can’t sleep here. You –”
“Wanwan.” Zhan Haoze reached out and grabbed her hand. He looked at her with his usual cold face, but there was a hint of warmth and fatigue in his eyes.
“I’m very tired.”
During this period of time, aside from those people who wanted to deal with him in the open and in the dark,. He had also received a lot of interference in his work.
Whether it was in Lin City or Qing City, he still had a lot of things to do. However, because he hadn’t seen her for a long time, he flew over ten hours to see her despite his injuries.
He didn’t rest on the plane either. Instead, he took care of some very important business matters first. He was really tired now.
“Wanwan, let me sleep for a while.”
When he said that, Shi Mengwan finally noticed that other than the injuries on his body, there were faint dark circles beneath his eyes.
Her lips moved. She wanted to be more heartless and harden her heart, but she couldn’t do it no matter what.
She could only watch as Zhan Haoze closed his eyes. His hand was still holding her hand.
“Sleep with me for a while, okay?” Zhan Haoze didn’t even open his eyes. He just held Shi Mengwan’s hand tightly.
Shi Mengwan stood by the bed and looked at Zhan Haoze, who seemed to have lost a little weight. She didn’t sleep as he wished. Instead, she pulled her hand back and took a step back.
Zhan Haoze looked at her with half-opened eyes. At this moment, Zhan Haoze unexpectedly made Shi Mengwan feel weak.
Weak? How could that be? That was definitely not an emotion that would appear on Zhan Haoze.
In her heart, this person was like a robot. How could he be weak?
He called her again. This time, Shi Mengwan decided not to be influenced by him. She turned around and went straight to the bathroom.
She walked quickly and closed the door after entering the bathroom. She placed her hands on the edge of the bathroom and stared at her face in the mirror.
Don’t be soft-hearted. Don’t believe it. That man is now someone else’s.
If you’re soft-hearted, it’s equivalent to harming yourself again. You can’t. You absolutely can’t.
Shi Mengwan was in a bad mood. She took more than ten minutes to take a shower than usual before coming out. She was wrapped in the hotel bathrobe.
When she saw Zhan Haoze, his eyes were tightly closed. His breathing was long and balanced. It seemed that he was really asleep.
Shi Mengwan walked to the bed and stood still. She stared at Zhan Haoze’s face. Many thoughts flashed through her mind, such as shaking him awake and telling him to leave. Or she might as well get another room.
However, when she saw Zhan Haoze’s abdominal injury, she temporarily put those thoughts aside and suppressed them.
She closed her eyes and finally laid down beside him helplessly. Unable to calm down, she stared at the side of Zhan Haoze’s face.
Shi Mengwan thought that she wouldn’t be able to sleep, but she also thought that she would toss and turn all night.
But in reality, she slept very soundly. No matter how much she didn’t want to deny it, she couldn’t escape the feelings in her heart.
Wherever Zhan Haoze was, she could always sleep more peacefully.
Early in the morning.
Shi Mengwan woke up. When she opened her eyes, she saw Zhan Haoze’s enlarged face in front of her.
He was staring at her. When she woke up, he lowered his head and kissed her lips.
Shi Mengwan instinctively avoided him. She looked at him and moved her body to the side.
Zhan Haoze supported himself on the bed with one hand and watched her movements. Then, he moved a little in her direction.
Shi Mengwan quickly got up and sat two arms away from him.
Her gaze shifted a little and she told herself not to look at him.
“Your injury should be fine now. You should go.”
Shi Mengwan didn’t plan to continue like this. Her body moved but before she could leave, Zhan Haoze had already pulled her down. In the next second, she was pressed under his body.
“Wanwan, I’m not engaged.”
He looked into her eyes and said very seriously.
His eyes were deep and focused. To her, they held a fatal attraction. She knew he might not be telling the truth, so she didn’t want to believe him.
She wanted to struggle, but when she thought about Zhan Haoze’s injuries, she had no choice but to stop.
“Really? Does it have anything to do with me?” Shi Mengwan forced herself to turn away. “Who are you to me? Whether you’re engaged or not and which woman you’re with, you don’t have to tell me.”
Zhan Haoze’s brows furrowed. “Wanwan?”
“Don’t call me.” Shi Mengwan seemed to have made up her mind as she turned to look at him. “Zhan Haoze, you said you’re not engaged?”
“You said you have nothing to do with Chen Feifei?”
“Then tell me, who do you think I am to you?”
Zhan Haoze paused and looked at Shi Mengwan’s petite face. He said three words very slowly, “Girlfriend.”
“I’m your girlfriend?”
“Yes.” Isn’t she?
“Okay. You said I’m your girlfriend.” Shi Mengwan suddenly reached out to hold his face and looked into his eyes seriously. “Then, do you dare to publicize our relationship?”
“Publicize it to the entire Lin City. Tell everyone that you’re my man and I’m your woman? Do you dare?”
“Do you dare to let everyone know that I’m your girlfriend?”
She slowed down her voice and said word by word, “Zhan Haoze, tell me, do you dare?”
