Chapter 8 – Mask (2)
“Ready. Reporter Liu, we are the first to come to the hospital, this is absolutely exclusive.”
“No kidding! Xu Jiawei has been discharged from the hospital and we didn’t manage to get the scoop, but Su Jinbei is still there. We are the first to know. If we manage to capture her, it will surely be an exclusive scoop.”
“Isn’t it? Insiders revealed that Su Jinbei and Xu Jiawei were sent in on the same day because of the same car accident. The car accident isn’t the important part. The point is that these two people were in the same car in the middle of the night. We’ll interview Su Jinbei and see what she says. And once we publish the article, it will definitely blow up.”
“Okay, let’s go.”
The two whispering behind her left, Su Jinbei bowed her head and pulled her cap down further. Damn, is a car accident not important? Is this sister’s life not important? This damned reporter must have lost all conscience!
But the news had been leaked. They were going to the VIP ward to look for her, she couldn’t bump into them now.
Su Jinbei sneaked a glance at the shadows of the two men and pushed the wheelchair in the other direction with her hand.
“Hello, do you know which ward Su Jinbei is in?”
Not far away, a man and a woman stopped a nurse to ask. Su Jinbei stopped the hand pushing the wheelchair and quickly turned to face them.
Damn, it’s a reporter again, a reporter who is even asking for directions.
Su Jinbei thinks of her current appearance, no makeup, sickly face, and wearing an oversized medical gown. For someone who has always appeared her best in front of the camera, this getup was simply shameful. She would not tolerate articles released of her like this!
Su Jinbei’s heart beat fast. She stood up against the wall next to her, stumbling twice on one foot, looking for a place to hide.
But who would have thought, the two reporters who went to the ward to find her turned around when they couldn’t find anyone. Su Jinbei kept facing this direction in order to hide from the two reporters. As a result, the reporters who came out of the ward saw a covered Su Jinbei.
“That person? It’s Su Jinbei!” One of them was startled.
“It really is! Come on!”
The two reporters behind him heard and looked up in surprise, “Su Jinbei! It’s Su Jinbei!”
Su Jinbei’s mouth twitched slightly, she has lost all will to live…
The door next to her suddenly opened from the inside. Su Jinbei was stunned for a moment, God was opening up a path for her! So she threw herself in without thinking, and exclaimed, “Close the door, close the door, close the door!!!”
Being on one foot, Su Jinbei completely lost her center of gravity, and she was expecting to hit the ground soon. But the expected collision did not happen. With her body tilted at a 45-degree angle, a pair of strong arms circled her waist.
Su Jinbei was relieved, but she didn’t have time to see who the owner of this hand was, because she hurriedly reached out to lock the door the next second.
Reporters stalked beyond the door.
The voice of reporters, the voice of nurses, the voice of people witnessing an entertaining situation go down. In short, it was chaotic outside.
Su Jinbei looked at the closed door with satisfaction, having finally escaped these reporters.
“What are you doing.” There was a magnetic cold voice behind her. Su Jinbei stopped in her tracks, hmm… This voice… how familiar.
She looked down at the arm she held for support, a white doctor’s coat, and a slip of white shirt sleeve was exposed at the cuff.
Su Jinbei remembered who it was, and she looked back in relief, “Dr. Zhou, so it was you, thanks to you…”
Suddenly her voice halted, Su Jinbei had seen that Dr. Zhou, who always wore a mask in front of her, was not wearing his mask.
Dr. Zhou without a mask?!
Jade-like face, indifferent light brown eyes, soft, red lips… What a stunning face, the kind that, although attractive, wasn’t intense and penetrating. He wasn’t aggressively good looking, yet there’s a slight aura of intimidation. His downward gaze was calm with an inexplicable trace of aloofness.
Su Jinbei looked at his eyes, and for a while she was speechless. She had seen too many good-looking people, but her thoughts went out the window when she met Zhou Shiyun’s eyes…
She had always known the color of his pupils was light brown. Just because he wore a mask didn’t prevent those two eyes from looking at her indifferently. But she didn’t realize how good the result of pairing this pair of eyes to his face would be. After watching for a long time, she felt that she could lose herself in this ethereal beauty.
“Are you Dr. Zhou?” Su Jinbei finally knew why Xue Ying was so excited. As it turned out, she had been spot on.
Zhou Shiyun also just realized that he wasn’t wearing a mask, but seeing Su Jinbei’s reaction, he found that it didn’t matter if he didn’t wear a mask.
It turned out that she had never seen him. Her knowledge of him was much less than he thought.
“Wow, Dr. Zhou, it really is a case of ‘the sage presents as an ordinary person’.” Su Jinbei cautiously said. Zhou Shiyun didn’t put much thought into what she meant and looked down, saying calmly, “Are you performing acrobatics?”
“Huh?” Su Jinbei followed his gaze to see herself uncomfortably standing on one foot and regained her focus back to the matter at hand, “No, I left my wheelchair to hide from the people outside.”
“Oh.” Zhou Shiyun reached out and lifted her hand, then put her hand on the cabinet on the side, “Then you do you, I’m busy.”
As he spoke, he moved to open the door.
“Wait!!” Su Jinbei grabbed his hand, “Don’t open the door!”
