Chapter 17 – Satisfied (1)
During this time, Su Jinbei lived well and ate well in the hospital, and seemed to have gained some weight.
“What’s going on?” Su Jinbei looked at the little black dress that couldn’t be zipped up. “He Di, did the dress shrink?”
He Di was sitting on the sofa, speechless, “This skirt was bought when you were thinnest. Isn’t it normal that you can’t wear it now?”
Su Jinbei froze for a while, “Wait, you mean… I got fat?”
He Di clasped his fingers, “You’ve been ‘recuperating’ so well recently, gaining a few pounds is a given. You can just lose them after getting discharged.”
Su Jinbei opened his mouth, obviously not accepting this fact. She couldn’t wear her clothes, she gained weight? She, Su Jinbei, actually had the unfortunate ability to gain weight…
“Whatever, go wear your patient gown, why even bother looking through these clothes.”
Su Jinbei resentfully changed out of the little black dress, but she still didn’t put on her patient gown, only put on another slightly looser outfit. “The patient gown is so ugly, I can’t let Zhou Shiyun take me lightly.”
He Di, “…”
“Where’s the makeup bag?”
He Di silently handed it to her. Su Jinbei took it and very skillfully applied makeup.
Ten minutes later, Su Jinbei exited the ward in a wheelchair.
Su Jinbei’s movements were discreet, but as soon as she appeared at the doorway, almost all the people present turned their attention on her. The cashmere dark blue coat, with a long black tight sweater inside; she was clearly sitting in a wheelchair, but her beautiful curves and slender figure could not be concealed.
Su Jinbei’s long hair lazily rested on her shoulders, and her turtleneck sweater framed her delicate and fair face, and her skin was brighter than snow. At this moment she said something to the person behind her and suddenly smiled slightly cunningly, so everyone was charmed by her red lips and twinkling eyes. The scene was like a ray of lovely spring sunshine, her face was glowing like the most beautiful golden hour shone upon her.
The surrounding medical staff was stupefied. Su Jinbei had been around for so long, they were of course aware of her beauty, but they did not expect that the immaculately dressed Su Jinbei was the real deal.
The nurse who was called dazedly recovered, “Ah, Miss Su, is there a problem?”
Su Jinbei smiled, “Does Dr. Zhou have surgery today?”
“Then do you know where he is?”
“In his office.”
“Okay.” Su Jinbei nodded toward her, folded the sunglasses in her hand, and leisurely told He Di to push her forward.
He Di pushed her to Zhou Shiyun’s office and was left behind by Su Jinbei at the door. “I have something to tell him, wait for me here.”
He Di, “Jinbei, calm down. I know he humiliated you, but it isn’t that big of a deal, right?”
Su Jinbei hooked her lips, “It’s not like I’ll eat him up, what are you anxious about?”
Saying so, Su Jinbei knocked on the door.
There was a soft voice from behind the door, “Come in.”
Su Jinbei opened the door and wheeled herself in. After entering, she closed the door politely.
Zhou Shiyun sat behind his desk and looked up at the sound. He paused slightly after seeing the person coming in and lowered his eyes. “What’s wrong with you now?”
Su Jinbei pushed her wheelchair to his desk, “Dr. Zhou, do I have to have problems to see you?”
Zhou Shiyun pondered for a moment, “What else?”
Su Jinbei smiled patiently, supporting her chin with her hand casually, and then… staring at Zhou Shiyun, “I was just wondering how your forehead was.”
“I’m fine.” Zhou Shiyun closed the document on the table, “You are a patient, don’t run around. And don’t come to my office if you don’t have anything.”
Su Jinbei raised her eyebrows, “But I am a doctor’s relative, shouldn’t I have the right to enter your office?”
Su Jinbei nodded affirmatively, “Given our relationship, am I not a relative?”
Zhou Shiyun was silent and was a little in disbelief, so he said, “You strongly oppose this marriage to my knowledge.”
Su Jinbei frowned, “To my knowledge, you’re equally opposed to this marriage.” She whispered, adding, “You didn’t even come to the engagement ceremony.”
Zhou Shiyun, “Then it hasn’t been established that we are related.”
Su Jinbei chuckled softly, her peach blossom eyes enchanting, “In case you didn’t know, I’ve changed my opinion recently.”
Zhou Shiyun, “…”
“Sigh, I blame myself. I didn’t care to see what my fiancé looked like before. Now that I’ve seen it, I’m very satisfied.” Su Jinbei pointed to Zhou Shiyun, “Such a handsome fiancé, of course, I’ll readily accept.”
Zhou Shiyun stared at her for a moment.
The woman in front of him seemed to be serious. He had no way of knowing her intentions, but he knew that he didn’t like what she said. Handsome? Accept? With what logic?
“Zhou Shiyun, where do you live? I think my mom told me before but I wasn’t paying attention and forgot.”
Zhou Shiyun didn’t answer, but said after a while, “Su Jinbei.”
“Yes!” Come to think of it, he had never called her by her name before. Su Jinbei was excited, waiting for his next sentence.
“You wanted to marry me because you wanted us to not interfere with each other, you wanted to continue doing your current job, and you didn’t want your family to bother you.”
Su Jinbei was stunned for a moment, she didn’t expect him to have had her investigated, “So?”
“I thought you would run far away once you found out who I was.”
