Looking at how his expression had turned even worse, Shi Guang head up and asked worriedly, “What’s wrong with you? What happened exactly? Share with me and I’ll see if I can help?”
Huo Zhan forced his lips down and said wearily, “It’s nothing much. I’m probably just a little tired?”
“Tired?” Shi Guang looked at him—his face was slightly pale, with his black hair sloshing down his forehead, dripping with water. He looked totally helpless and defeated.
Was he too tired from the plane ride?
“I’ll hurry and cook the meal faster then, so that you can rest earlier after eating.”
Huo Zhan looked at her deeply, a sense of bitterness filling his throat.
If only he had realized it sooner, before she had even moved into his apartment. Even though Huo Zhan had so many things he wanted to say right now, he repressed all of them back. “It’s fine! I don’t feel like eating.”
Eating with them and watching them display their feelings of affection for one another? No way! He wasn’t a masochist!
Shi Guang was taken aback—wasn’t he the one who had asked her to cook for him?
Why was he suddenly chasing her away instead?
“But, the fish is already steaming.”
Huo Zhan curled his lips up and said in a low voice, “That’s good. At least I can eat after waking up. Don’t disturb me anymore, the two of you. Hurry and head out to eat.”
Shi Guang raised her brows, evidently still worried. “Are you really sure you’re fine?”
“I am… I’m just tired.”
“Okay then, I’ll be leaving now. Rest well!”
Shi Guang was not convinced. She felt that Huo Zhan was keeping something from her. But, since he wasn’t willing to tell her why, he must have his reasons for it.
As his good friend, she knew that she mustn’t force him to talk right now. She’d just let him rest first, and when he was ready to talk about it, she’d be his most earnest listener and help him to the greatest extent possible.
Looking at Shi Guang’s back view, Huo Zhan found his hands that were resting on the washing basin curling into a fist.
Did he really have no chance anymore?
Was he going to live his entire life carrying this regret with him?
Did he not even have the courage to confess at least once?
No… He mustn’t let himself regret it! Not without even going up to challenge for a fair fight! No way!
“Shi Guang…” Huo Zhan’s voice drifted out slowly once more. It was soft, just like that of a mosquito, such that he had thought Shi Guang would have missed it.
Unexpectedly, she turned around and looked at him. “I’m here.”
Huo Zhan gulped and looked at her deeply, speaking out in a serious manner, “I wanted to tell you that I’ve already found… my true love.”
Those were words that Shi Guang would not believe in. After all, she had already heard him say them so many times before. She chuckled while asking, “Who is it this time around? Is it the same type of girl that has to have a pair of large eyes, long hair, slender waist, and long legs?”
After he had finally managed to puff up enough courage, that reply caused every bit of guts Huo Zhan had to disappear entirely. He was a little helpless and exasperated. “What’s with that tone of yours? Have you never once believed that I was really trying to search for my true love all this while?”
Shi Guang chuckled out in a silly manner.
Indeed, she had never believed him—all she thought was that he was a playboy messing around in the name of searching for a true love.
However, she would never say those words out loud, afraid that it would cause him to lose his face. So, she coughed out before replying in a serious tone, “How could that be? I believe with 100% certainty that you were looking for your true love, and that you’re a good man who would only love your one true love for the rest of eternity.”
Huo Zhan sweated. “Does that expression of yours show trust at all?”
“Fufu… I think the fish should be about done! Let me take it out for you,” Before Shi Guang left, she asked one last time, “Are you sure you really don’t need me to make any other dishes for you?”
“Out, out, out!” Huo Zhan gave a look of total impatience. Being messed around by her like that caused that mood of his to disappear entirely.
Of course, there was no way he would want to see them acting all lovey-dovey!
