Chapter 1122: Resolute and Cold

Xia Mo looked at Xia Yanran and wondered if she should call Junyuan. Ever since she confessed and was rejected, they had not been in touch for some time.

During this period, she was taking some time off overseas. Her mood had improved and she had thought about many things.

If she could confess, the doctor could also reject her.

Therefore, he owed her nothing. In fact, there was no reason for her to avoid him. The more afraid she was to see him, the more it showed how she was unable to let go!

After Xia Mo consoled herself in her heart, she helped Xia Yanran into the elevator.

As soon as they arrived at the apartment door, it was opened from the inside.

Xia Mo had not prepared herself and looking at Junyuan, who had appeared at the door, she was stunned.

Junyuan was wearing a shirt with a heart shaped collar and a pair of dark-colored casual pants. His hair was cut shorter and he looked handsome and fresh.

It just so happened that Junyuan had called Xia Yanran but seeing that she did not pick up, he was about to go look for her. Seeing Xia Mo supporting Xia Yanran, Junyuan was also stunned for a few seconds.

Taken by surprise, their eyes met each other.

Xia Mo was still unable to be unaffected. After all, the doctor was the first man she had confessed to. And she felt hurt being rejected by him in that way.

Junyuan reacted first. Reaching out his hands, he helped Xia Yanran over from Xia Mo’s hands. “She drank too much?”

His voice was gentle, like the clearest stream in the mountain, swaying people’s hearts. His tone was not overly cold, nor warm. It was calm and gentle like he had met a friend who he had not seen for a long time.

Xia Mo felt a stifling feeling in her heart.

She was still overthinking things and feeling awkward. The other party was not uncomfortable, as if he had forgotten they were not on good terms!

Xia Mo was not a narrow-minded person. Since he had let it go, why must she hold on to it?

Although the way he rejected her had hurt her self-esteem, he was better than those who only wanted to play with her feelings. At least, he was never ambiguous with her when he had no feelings for her, nor gave her any hope!

After Xia Mo thought it over, she nodded. “I met Sister Yanran at the hotel and she seemed to be entertaining guests.”

Junyuan smelled the wine on Xia Yanran and he frowned. Ever since she had come back, he could feel that there was something not right with her.

Although he had asked her several times, all she said was that there was a lot of pressure at work and nothing else.

“Doctor Xia, I’ll hand Sister Yanran to you. I’ll be going now.”

Xia Mo was about to turn and leave when Junyuan’s gentle voice sounded, “Can you help me change Yanran’s clothes?”

He was Sister Yanran’s brother, and there were differences between men and women after all. Sister Yanran was so drunk so it was not convenient for him to change her clothes. Xia Mo hummed and followed Junyuan into the apartment.

Junyuan put Xia Yanran on the bed and after Xia Mo went in, he said, “Thank you.”

“It’s alright.”

Junyuan went out of the room and closed the door.

Xia Mo found a set of pajamas from the wardrobe and went to the bathroom to get some water.

She wiped Xia Yanran’s face and hands, and the person who had her eyes closed, suddenly opened them, holding Xia Mo’s fingers. “Xiao Yi…”

Xia Mo’s eyelashes fluttered. “Sister Yanran, do you miss Uncle Xiao?”

They should have made up when Sister Yanran went to look for Uncle Xiao in Bardahl, right?

“I feel so miserable, Xiao Yi.”

Xia Yanran’s voice was soft and Xia Mo did not hear what she had said clearly, only that she had called Uncle Xiao’s name.

Xia Mo took out her phone. She did not have Uncle Xiao’s number in Bardahl, so she voice-chatted him.

She thought nobody would answer it. After all, Uncle Xiao seldom used WeChat.

But he picked up after a few rings.

“Xiaomo? Are you with Yanran?”

Xia Mo’s mouth twitched.

Uncle Xiao was amazing. She had just called him and he guessed that Sister Yanran was with her.

Xia Mo looked at the drunk Xia Yanran and said softly, “Sister Yanran drank too much and kept calling your name.”

“I’m hanging up and video calling you.”

Before Xia Mo could say anything, the voice chat was hung up and Xiao Yi video called her.

Xia Mo wanted to pass the phone to Xia Yanran, but Xia Yanran frowned and shook her head. “I don’t want to tell him… I can’t say…”

Xia Yanran’s voice was soft and Xia Mo could not hear what she was saying.

She looked at Xiao Yi who was in the video call. “Uncle Xiao, Sister Yanran’s very drunk and I don’t think she can talk to you.”

Xiao Yi had arrived at the place he was staying. He had just taken a bath, a navy blue bathrobe wrapped around his body. His hair was still wet, his facial features well-defined and the outlines of his face was full of masculinity and coldness.

“Yanran?” He called out to her.

Xia Yanran’s eyelashes fluttered and she looked at the man in the video call, murmuring softly, “Xiao Yi, I miss you.”

Xia Mo only saw Xia Yanran’s lips moving and did not hear any sounds, but the man replied, “Okay, I know.”

Xia Yanran turned around, closing her eyes and seemed to have fallen asleep. Still holding onto the phone, Xia Mo didn’t quite know what to do.

“Xiaomo, please cover her with the blanket. I’ll hang up first.”

Xia Mo nodded. “Okay.”

After ending the video call, Xia Mo sat by the bed and stared at Xia Yanran for a while. Seeing that her breathing was even, she stood up and went out of the room.

Junyuan sat on the sofa and had prepared a bowl of recovery tonic for Xia Mo. Xia Mo shook her head. “Doctor Xia, you don’t have to be so polite. Sister Yanran has fallen asleep and it’s getting late. I’ll head back now.”

Junyuan was silent for a moment before saying, “Did you drive here?”

Xia Mo hummed in agreement.

“Then I’ll take you downstairs.”

Xia Mo knew that he was doing it out of concern and kindness so she said nothing and they went out of the door one after the other.

Xia Mo’s car was parked in the district and after going out of the gate, Xia Mo waved to him and jogged towards her car.

It was late at night and there were few people in the district. It was quiet all around. Xia Mo opened the car door, but had just opened a crack when a fair and long hand suddenly reached over, pressing on the door frame.

The fresh masculine scent filled her nostrils and her body was covered by the shadow casted by the man’s tall body.

Xia Mo’s back was pressed tightly against the door, her heart pounding. She said nothing and looked down, her curled and long eyelashes fluttering.

“I wanted to apologize to you about that matter. I rejected you in an inappropriate way and didn’t consider your feelings.”

Xia Mo pursed her lips and her gaze landed on his hand that was pressing on the door.

A few seconds later, she shifted her gaze to his face and smiled. “It’s all in the past, don’t take it to heart.”
