Chapter 1292: Finding Her

It was a call from Auntie Li, the servant of Qiao Yanze’s villa.

Although Auntie Li was an old servant of the Qiao family, she had never put on airs in front of Cen Xi. She had taken good care of Cen Xi in those few short days.

Was there something important for her to call in the middle of the night? Cen Xi hesitated for a moment before answering the call.

As soon as the call got through, Cen Xi heard Auntie Li coughing.

“Auntie Li, are you feeling unwell?”

“Miss Cen, I’m really sorry to bother you so late at night. I’m having a fever and Young Master has not been back for several days. I don’t feel so good, can you come to the villa?”

Cen Xi did not think too much. “Okay, I’ll be right there.”

She was a kind and grateful girl. If people were good to her, she would definitely repay them as much as she could.

No matter what Qiao Yanze was like, Auntie Li was very good to her. She could not sit back and ignore when Auntie Li was having a fever and cough.

So Cen Xi got out of bed, changed, bought medicine and went to the villa. On the way there, she was a little uneasy, but Auntie Li said that Qiao Yanze had not returned to the villa for several days. He probably would not go back now since it was so late, right?

What Cen Xi did not know was that after Auntie Li called Cen Xi, she called Qiao Yanze after a while.

It was not that Qiao Yanze did not return to the villa. On the contrary, no matter how late it was, he would still go back.

When Auntie Li called Qiao Yanze, he was still working overtime.

Auntie Li was an old servant of the Qiao family who used to work for Madam Qiao and had seen Qiao Yanze growing up. She could see that Qiao Yanze liked Cen Xi, but he was too proud.

“Young Master, I have a cold and fever and there isn’t any medicine at home. Can you bring me some when you come back?”

When Qiao Yanze heard Auntie Li’s cough, he stood up immediately. “Okay, I’ll come back right away.”

Cen Xi rushed to the villa and gave Auntie Li the medicine.

“Auntie Li, did you eat anything for dinner?”

Auntie Li shook her head. “I don’t have much appetite.”

“You have to eat something. I’ll go cook some porridge for you.”

“Miss Cen, it’s too much trouble.”

“It’s no trouble. Go take a rest first. I’ll bring the porridge to you.”

Cen Xi went to the kitchen from Auntie Li’s room and when she walked past the living room, she glanced at the sofa. She could not help thinking about that night when she fell asleep while waiting for Qiao Yanze to come back and was awakened by his kiss.

If she had not tried to stop him, she might have been pinned down by him on the sofa that night to do intimate things.

Ah, stop thinking about it! Cen Xi shook her head, shaking that ambiguous image out of her head. Going into the kitchen, she washed the rice and cooked it with a bigger fire.

She had both hands on the kitchen counter, her legs that were clad in black pencil pants were crossed over.

When Qiao Yanze arrived at the villa, he heard some noise as he passed by the kitchen. Thinking that it was Auntie Li, he glanced inside.

He saw a slender figure in a white shirt and black pants with the shirt tucked into the pants, and the legs that were crossed were long and straight.

A head of long black hair was spread on the back and the slender figure looked youthful and beautiful.

Was he seeing wrongly?

In order not to let herself think too much, Cen Xi focused her thoughts on how to get hired for the position of being the chief interpreter’s assistant. She did not notice a man standing at the kitchen door until the sound of steady and powerful footsteps sounded.

Cen Xi’s body stiffened. She did not look back and knew who was coming just by the footsteps.

Didn’t Auntie Li say that he had not returned to the villa recently? Why was she so unlucky?

Cen Xi looked at the porridge in the pot and turned the fire down. Lowering her head, she prepared to leave.

But the man was standing right behind her. It was too late for her to go even if she wanted to. Because they were standing relatively close, Cen Xi could smell the scent of tobacco on his body.

Just as she was organizing what she wanted to say to him, the man’s palm suddenly reached out and grabbed her slender waist.

Cen Xi was like a frightened kitten. She turned around but did not want to stand face to face with him as their bodies were getting even closer.

Taking a deep breath, Cen Xi raised her thick and curly eyelashes, and met with the man’s dark and beautiful upturned eyes. “Young Master Qiao, Auntie Li called me and said that she was feeling unwell so I came to see her.”

In other words, she was not here to see him and that he should not misunderstand.

Qiao Yanze raised his eyebrows slightly. “Didn’t you say that you wouldn’t be coming here again? What does it have to do with you when my servant falls sick?”

“Auntie Li has been very good to me those days I lived here. She said that you haven’t come back here recently and I was afraid that something might happen to her, so it’s human nature to come and see her. Why must Young Master Qiao be so aggressive?”

Qiao Yanze looked at her fair face that was glowing and lowered his head, approaching her. The tips of their noses were about to touch and their breaths were intertwined.

Cen Xi’s body leaned back and she furrowed her eyebrows. “Young Master Qiao, can you talk to me properly?”

“You offered yourself to me, what do you want me to say?” His lips pressed against her ear and he lowered his voice deliberately.

Cen Xi had a headache. “Do you not understand human speech? I didn’t offer myself. Iー”

He interrupted her. “It doesn’t make any difference to me.”

“There’s nothing between us anymore. Don’t you think you’re being very shameless like this?” She glared at him with her chin raised slightly, and her fair neck was exposed, like a beautiful swan.

The man did not seem to hear her and holding her waist with both hands, he picked her up and put her on the kitchen counter.

Just when the man’s kiss was about to fall, she leaned back subconsciously and her fingers accidentally touched the hot pot that was cooking the porridge.

Ah! The sharp pain on her skin made her eyes filled with tears.

Cen Xi’s hand was scalded red.

When Qiao Yanze saw this, he did not kiss her and immediately turned on the tap, washing her scalded hand under the cold water.

But Cen Xi pushed him away.
