“I’ll take your silence as consent.” Tong Yi said as she closed the door behind her. Lu Zhanbei’s legs were long, and she had to jog to catch up to him.
“Slow down, I can’t keep up.”
The man suddenly stopped in his tracks, causing Tong Yi to bump into his back.
Did she run into an iron wall?
Tong Yi covered her forehead with her hand, her eyes moistened with tears threatening to overflow. Suddenly, a card appeared in front of her eyes. Tong Yi raised her clear and watery eyes, her expression unreadable. “What’s this?”
Lu Zhanbei’s thin lips lifted slightly. “The restaurant is on the third floor.”
So this was the hotel’s meal card?
Was he giving her the meal card to stop her from following him?
Tong Yi did not take it. “I want to eat with you.” They had to build up their relationship. If not, when would she be able to win his heart and make him willingly get engaged to her?
Lu Zhanbei frowned slightly. “I have some business to attend to.”
“Can’t you bring a female companion along?”
Tong Yi tried to negotiate with him. “I won’t speak, and I won’t disturb you.”
Lu Zhanbei kept the card. Tong Yi thought that he had compromised. Unexpectedly, he took out his mobile phone and called someone. “Book a flight ticket to Beijing immediately…”
Tong Yi immediately understood the scenario and quickly said, “I’ll not follow you.”
Lu Zhanbei looked down at Tong Yi while maintaining his position on the phone.
Tong Yi wanted to snatch away Lu Zhanbei’s mobile, but she dared not do so when she met his deep and oppressive gaze.
Helpless, she raised three slender fingers next to her ear and swore. “I’m really not going to follow you to work. Don’t chase me away.”
Lu Zhanbei looked at Tong Yi for a moment and moved the phone away from his ear. He hung up the call and handed the card in his hand to Tong Yi.
Tong Yi accepted the card and lowered her eyes. A hint of amusement flashed across her eyes. To complete the mission, she had learned to be shameless.
The two entered the elevator together, but neither spoke.
When the elevator stopped on the third floor, Tong Yi did not exit immediately. Instead, she placed one foot next to the elevator door to prevent it from closing. “Are you familiar with Lan City?”
Lu Zhanbei looked at her with both hands in his pockets. His thin lips were slightly pursed. It was obvious that he didn’t intend to speak.
‘Why are you so stingy with your words? Can’t you even give me a simple reply?’
Tong Yi continued, “This is my first time in Lan City. Can you show me around in the afternoon?”
Tong Yi fell silent at his quick response this time.
It was probably because she had been rejected so many times that Tong Yi did not feel any emotions when he rejected her once more. She nodded and left the elevator.
Lu Zhanbei’s thin lips moved slightly. He wanted to say something, but the elevator door closed on him.
Tong Yi returned to her room after her meal. After familiarizing herself with the environment, she decided to stay for the night.
Even though there was only one bedroom, there was a small couch in the study, she could sleep on that.
Currently, there was no progress between her and Lu Zhanbei, so she couldn’t let go of any opportunity to get close to him.
Tong Yi sat on the sofa in the living room and watched television for a while. Feeling bored, she flipped through the information Ling Rui had sent her about flirting with men.
As time passed, she ended up lying on the couch and stared blankly at Lu Zhanbei’s phone number on her phone screen.
‘Should I call him and ask when he will be back?
‘What if he finds me annoying and buys me a return flight ticket?’
She hesitated for a few moments but Tong Yi finally dialed Lu Zhanbei’s number. She decided that if he bought her a return flight ticket, she could just go back and come here again. She couldn’t stand waiting around, every second that passed was like torture.
The phone rang a few times before the receiver picked up. Tong Yi waited for two seconds. Hearing silence from the other party, she took the initiative to say, “It’s me, Tong Yi.”
“When are you coming back?”
“Nothing much, I’m just bored.”
