MARRIED TO THE WRONG BRIDE - Season 3 Episode 62
“You’re pressing on me,” Huo Zhen kindly reminded her as a sly smile spread across his face.
Mo Yan was shocked and about to stand up in a panic. Unfortunately, Huo Zhen was one step ahead and used his uninjured hand to grab Mo Yan’s wrist. Seeing that Mo Yan was still struggling, he added in a serious tone, “You’d better listen to me, or else you’ll pull on my wound and I don’t know when it will heal.”
At this, Mo Yan ceased to struggle.
Her face turned even redder, and she didn’t know how to face Huo Zhen. She lowered her head and couldn’t believe that her voice was so soft. “Huo Zhen, what on earth do you want to do? You’re still injured; you can’t, right?”
“You said I can’t?”
Huo Zhen raised his eyebrows slightly. Had she just been provoking him?
“I didn’t mean that. I… I meant… I meant it’s not convenient.” Knowing that Huo Zhen’s thoughts were elsewhere, Mo Yan explained in alarm. Unfortunately, her painstaking explanation still sounded strange to Huo Zhen…
It was even ambiguous.
Sure enough, Huo Zhen had misunderstood Mo Yan’s meaning.
He threw a meaningful smile at Mo Yan. “Is that so? It’s not inconvenient. I can eat you up with one hand.”
Mo Yan was so stunned that she immediately escaped from Huo Zhen’s arms.
She patted her chest, which was still heaving violently. Although they had been husband and wife for so long, they had not really taken the last step. Moreover, wasn’t his earlier flirting a little too direct?
“Can’t you be more serious? Aren’t you afraid that others will see what happened just now? Since you’re Master Huo, you should have many visitors when you’re injured, right?”
Thinking that he was the unattainable Huo Zhen, Mo Yan sighed faintly.
If he had just been Luo Tao, Mo Yan was confident that through her own efforts, she could become someone as outstanding as him and make others sincerely feel that they were a good match. However, when she thought about him being favored by the heavens, the difference between them was like that between heaven and earth. No matter how hard she tried, others would think that she had struck lottery by getting hold of Huo Zhen.
“No one will come to visit me,” Huo Zhen said lightly. He could also feel that Mo Yan was distant from him. He patted the side of his bed and motioned for Mo Yan to sit down, “The people who want to assassinate me are definitely related to the Huo family. I don’t need anyone to visit me either. Even if I’m injured, no one else will know about it.”
“Aren’t they your family?” Mo Yan was so aghast that her eyes widened. Huo Zhen’s expression was solemn and did not carry the slightest hint that he was joking.
“Isn’t Mo Lian also your relative? When she does things, does she have any regard for your relationship?” Huo Zhen did not directly answer Mo Yan. He stood and extended his hand to shake hers. “It’s funny to say that family ties can’t be compared to thin banknotes. For money, even close relatives can turn against each other.”
Mo Yan’s eyes dimmed. She could understand Huo Zhen. It was just like how she used to treat Mo Dong and Mo Lian as family, giving her all for their sake. She naively thought that sincerity would beget sincerity. She did not expect that, not only would they not feel touched at all, they even schemed against her. Time and time again, they put her in danger or made use of her.
“So now, in the entire Huo family, only that girl, Huo Yu, will be treated well by me.” Huo Zhen did not want Mo Yan to get involved in the feud enveloping the Huo family. He only let her know who was friend and who was foe.
Mo Yan responded lightly. She thought of the arrogant and domineering Huo Yu and was a little worried. “I quite like that girl, Huo Yu. She’s willful and eccentric, and has a straightforward personality. However, she doesn’t seem to like me very much. Should I do something?”
“So, I can understand that you really want to gain the approval of my family?” Huo Zhen smiled lightly and raised his hand to gently scratch Mo Yan’s nose.
Mo Yan was alarmed. Although she did mean it, the words coming out of Huo Zhen’s mouth were a little strange and uncomfortable.
“That’s not what I meant!”
She stood up in a panic and was pulled back by Huo Zhen. He suggestively brought his lips close to Mo Yan’s ear and moved his throat slightly. “You don’t have to do anything. This is good enough.”
Mo Yan was still a little hesitant. Huo Zhen cleared his throat and added.
“That girl, Huo Yu, has always distinguished clearly between love and hate. Her earlier attitude showed that she has accepted you. If not, she would have torn you apart on the spot.”
Although he wanted to comfort Mo Yan, Huo Zhen knew his sister very well. Based on her attitude just now, she had already accepted Mo Yan, but she did not know how to coexist peacefully.
