Chapter 9 – Reporters (1)
“Why?” Zhou Shiyun glanced at her doubtfully.
Su Jinbei was stupefied, feeling that this beauty was quite dazzling, so she snapped back into focus and avoided his eyes, “Because there are a lot of reporters outside.”
Zhou Shiyun’s mien changed slightly, his eyes clearly expressing, ‘So?’
“They all came for me. If you open the door, they will take pictures all over. Do you know what this means?” Su Jinbei said grimly, “This means that my current ghastly appearance will be shown to the entire country!”
Ghastly appearance? Zhou Shiyun heard her words and patiently scanned her from top to bottom.
Free of makeup, Su Jinbei indeed lost a bit of her on-screen glamorous charm, but it wasn’t so exaggerated as she said. With or without makeup, her face hasn’t changed, it was still easy to spot her as she stood out from the crowd. Moreover, she now had a pure and fresh aura.
“Dr. Zhou, please, please don’t open the door.” Su Jinbei stretched out her hand and tried to hold his hand, acting cute with all her might. But when she touched his palm, Zhou Shiyun dodged.
“Oh, I’m sorry, I forgot that Dr. Zhou is a bit of a germaphobe.” Su Jinbei jumped to the door on one foot and blocked the doorknob. “Dr. Zhou, let’s wait for the reporters to leave and then open the door, shall we.
Zhou Shiyun paused, turned around, and took out the phone in his pocket.
“Qingwei, what’s going on outside?”
“Senior Brother, are you in the office? There are many reporters crowding at your door one after another. They said that Miss Su is in your office. I told them that was impossible, that you wouldn’t let her into your office, but they wouldn’t listen to me.” Lin Qingwei talked to the reporters while talking to him. “This is a hospital. Please be quiet. Please don’t disturb the patients. Miss Su is really not here. You’ve made a mistake.”
Reporter, “I saw her going in with my own eyes. Doctor, we’ll just interview her a bit, and leave after the interview.”
“No way! Please leave, otherwise, we’ll have to call the police!”
“But Su Jinbei…”
“How many times do I have to say she’s not inside, this is my Senior Brother’s office!!”
Zhou Shiyun listened to the voice of Lin Qingwei’s righteous words outside the door, pursed his lips, and felt it necessary to tell him the truth, “Qingwei, Su Jinbei is here.”
Outside the door, Lin Qingwei’s voice placating the reporters stopped, “… ah?”
In the office.
“Dr. Zhou, can you help me, I want to sit there.”
Zhou Shiyun hung up Lin Qingwei’s call and turned to look at her.
Su Jinbei pointed down at her feet, “I can’t stand anymore.”
Zhou Shiyun was silent. He really didn’t like people entering his office very much, and he despised when others touched his things. He wholeheartedly wanted to reject Su Jinbei’s request.
But in such a situation, furthermore she was also his patient…
So, Zhou Shiyun could only frown. He collected himself with all the morals and ethics of a doctor, and indifferently faced Su Jinbei who was smiling cheekily.
Su Jinbei quickly thanked him, lifted her arm to his arm, and staggered toward the small sofa at the side.
“Ouch.” Su Jinbei had stood on one foot for too long and now couldn’t hold it anymore. She was about to fall again. Zhou Shiyun frowned, and quickly reached out again to stop her body, but… this time the position was not too appropriate.
Two seconds later, Su Jinbei stared at the hand across her chest with a stunned expression, and was speechless with his mouth open!
Zhou Shiyun also realized something was wrong, he quickly withdrew his hand and quickly grabbed Su Jinbei’s back collar.
“Cough… let go.” Su Jinbei didn’t even realize that she had been touched inappropriately, she only knew the next second she was pinched by the collar, “Hey…”
Zhou Shiyun carried her to the sofa like he was carrying something horrendous, and loosened his grip. Immediately, he said, “Sorry.”
Su Jinbei coughed again, and said huffing and laughing, “What for, touching my chest or strangling me?”
Zhou Shiyun pursed his lips and lowered his eyes to his hands. It was only a momentary thing, but the warmth of the fabric and the feel of the outline easily lingered, “It wasn’t on purpose.”
Su Jinbei raised her eyebrows and looked at him, of course she knew that he didn’t do it on purpose. But there was no change in expression with this apology, indeed he wasn’t a normal guy!
Zhou Shiyun felt that Su Jinbei’s gaze was a little weird, so he simply shifted his eyes, turned around, and sat down on the swivel chair behind his desk. “Let’s wait it out, the reporters will leave.”
Su Jinbei hummed, “Oh.”
Zhou Shiyun had little words to say and Su Jinbei’s phone was with Xiao Wai, so she could only sit. Because it was too boring, she looked at the interior of this small office.
Needless to say, the whole room was clean and spotless. Everything was neatly arranged. On the shelf next to her, the books are arranged methodically from tall to short, not a single thing out of place.
“Dr. Zhou, Xiaowei said you have mild OCD. Looking around, it seems to be true.” Zhou Shiyun paused without saying much. However, it took him several seconds to digest the fact that “Xiaowei” referred to Lin Qingwei.
“Dr. Zhou, you didn’t wear a mask today, is your cold all better?”
“Then I’m quite fortunate to be able to appreciate Dr. Zhou’s beauty.” Su Jinbei found a good position and looked at him with a slightly raised eyebrow. This gesture was a bit like how she usually seduced male stars on the show. “Dr. Zhou, you’re really handsome, you must have many suitors… Tsk, I think you look better than those male stars.”
Zhou Shiyun glanced at her, and suddenly a doubt formed in his heart. Why would his traditional grandmother accept this woman, even the spiritual master said that the characters of their birth date align perfectly… but he really couldn’t figure out where it would align.
“Hey, Dr. Zhou, why aren’t you talking? Could it be that you already have a girlfriend? Or are you married?” Su Jinbei asked eagerly with interest.
