COLD CEO AND ARROGANT WIFE, VOLUME 4 - Season 7 Episode 6
Hyson finally put an end to his drinking and paid the bill before getting up to leave. It was time to go to his room and sleep. While walking, he shook his head to wake himself up. He was drunk. Even if he didn’t drink much with the ladies but he drank a lot just now. However, his condition wasn’t as bad as those ladies as well. He was still very much awake.
And his mind was quite clear as well.
He was leaving the restaurant with his own thoughts when he a voice caught his attention.
“Why are you calling me again?” the man had lowered his voice to question.
One couldn’t hear what the other party said over the phone but he replied with a snicker, “What do you mean that I can’t involve your parents in this? You are the one who forced me to involve your parents in this. Didn’t I tell you to sign the divorce papers peacefully? But you had to refuse my goodwill.”
The man waited for a while to hear the reply from the other side before saying, “You think I’ve been dragging this marriage because I still have feelings for you? Don’t be so full of yourself now. My feelings have long been exhausted by you. It’s because I respect your parents that I dragged this marriage. Not to forget that I owed your sister. If it wasn’t for that, this matter would have blown up long ago!”
It could be seen that whatever the other person said really made the man angry. Trying to suppress his anger, he gritted out, “If you continue this, I’ll take this to court. I won’t lose anything apart from a part of my wealth. I’ll just consider it as if I donated that money to a beggar. But you… You sure you want to air the dirty laundry out in the open? It might reduce your chances of taking the office. Think about it clearly. Stop haunting me like a blood-sucking ghost. I’m at the end of my rope, I don’t mind hanging you up along with myself.”
It was this sentence that Hyson heard that caught his attention and his brows furrowed up. The voice…
He stepped over and indeed, he found Zhai Kuijun leaning against the wall. He held his phone in his hand in a tight grip while his other hand was actually clutching his chest. His face was distorted as if he was in pain right now.
Regarding this person, Hyson had no real feelings. He had no time to waste his feelings on him either but right now, he couldn’t ignore him either. If his mother found out, he’ll be the one in trouble.
He tapped both his cheeks with his hands and took a few deep breaths before he walked to Zhai Kuijun’s side and asked, “Are you alright?”
Zhai Kuijun was taken aback when he heard that question and tried to open his eyes to look at Hyson. And seeing him standing in front of him, he was even more shocked. What a surprise, he didn’t expect to see Hyson here.
He tried to wave his hand casually saying, “I’m fine. Don’t worry.”
“Who said I’m worried?” asked Hyson in a soft voice but Zhai Kuijun heard it. However, he didn’t react to it. “Anyway, you’re still Zhai Yanjun’s father, I can spare some concern here out of goodwill since I’m just that good of a kid.”
Zhai Yanjun suddenly smiled at his words not knowing how to react but Hyson didn’t give him a chance to react either as he stepped closer and held his arm to support him. He helped him sit down and then loosened his tie. he also unbuttoned the first few buttons of his shirt.
After that, Hyson poured him a glass of water and told him to drink it. He did everything meticulously to the point that no one could tell he was actually drunk right now. Even Zhai Kuijun could smell the stench of alcohol on his body. He could also see the slight ruddiness on Hyson’s cheeks as well. But apart from that, he couldn’t tell if this person was drunk or not.
“Are you feeling better?” asked Hyson.
Zhai Kuijun was still staring at his face intently. He didn’t know why he paid this much attention to Hyson but he just did.
“Thank you, Yue Fai!” said Zhai Kuijun.
Hyson raised his brow slightly, “You remember me?”
“You’re pretty hard to forget, young man,” said Zhai Kuijun with a chuckle.
Hyson narrowed his eyes and sighed, “And here I thought you had a memory problem.”
“Nothing,” was Hyson’s reply. “Are you here alone or with someone?”
“I was here for a business meeting,” replied Zhai Kuijun.
“Don’t tell me you didn’t bring even an assistant with you?” asked Hyson questioning his intelligence. He was certain that he didn’t get his intelligence from this man. He was never going to believe that!
“I did,” replied Zhai Kuijun. “But after the meeting ended, I asked my assistant to take our business partners to their hotel. He hadn’t come back yet.”
“Oh,” said Hyson and pulled out another chair to sit down.
“What are you doing?” asked Zhai Kuijun curiously.
“Waiting with you,” replied Hyson in a matter-of-factly matter. “Or else, what if something happened when I leave? How would I answer my mu… Cough! I mean, how am I gonna answer Zhai Yanjun or even Xiang Weimin? So, I’d rather just wait here for your assistant.”
Zhai Kuijun didn’t know why but at this moment he found this young man to be quite adorable. So adorable that he forgot about his earlier anger brought by his infuriating wife. He was really angry when he received the call from her. To the point that he almost had a stroke because of it. His breathing was harsh and he was sweating so much when Hyson found him. If he didn’t come, Zhai Kuijun would have collapsed there.
But the thing was, Hyson, did come even when it didn’t really have anything to do with him.
