480 Love requires some scheming sometimes.
"You must be Miss Tang?"
The man who was dressed like the mafia looked at Tang Xiaoyu respectfully.
Her brain quickly spun as she eyed the man with a frown.
I don't think I know this man. In fact, I don't think I've seen him before.
"Yes, I am. Who are you?" She nodded, feeling a little wary of the man who was giving off the vibe that he was part of a triad.
"Hello, Miss Tang. CEO Shen heard that your boyfriend got into an accident and sent me over to offer his support and to greet you on his behalf," the man respectfully answered.
"CEO Shen? Who?" She became more confused with the man's answer.
I don't recall knowing any CEO or vice president with the surname Shen.
Who is this CEO Shen supposed to be?
"Miss Tang, don't you know our boss?" The man seemed to be very taken aback by her question and looked if he expected her to know his boss.
"Hur hur. Excuse me, but I don't know any CEO Shen. You must've mistaken me for someone else." She mirthlessly laughed, clearly displeased.
"Miss Tang, our CEO is Egger—" She did not let the man to finish his words.
"I apologize, but you should leave. I don't know any CEO Shen or sh*t. My boyfriend needs some quiet time to recuperate, so please take your leave now." She looked at the man coldly.
She was currently feeling very annoyed. She finally got to talk to her best friend, but this irritating man just had to interrupt that with his arrival from nowhere. How distasteful!
The man clearly did not expect her to treat him like this.
Looking at her in shock, he forgot his initial intention to tell her more about his boss.
"I will be calling security if you don't leave now," she threatened.
"… Miss Tang, I think you are misconstruing something here." The man was at a loss on what to do now. He was clearly a tall and imposing man.
However, he was currently being cowed by her.
"I'm not misunderstanding anything, so please leave." She coldly reiterated her request with a stoic face.
"…" Boss, women are indeed scary creatures!
"Mi-Miss Tang, my bo-boss actually just wants Miss Pei's—" This poor bloke in a black suit failed to voice out his request as he was pushed out of the ward her.
"—Contact." The poor bloke stared at the door, which had been slammed shut in his face, and wanted to bawl his eyes out, but no tears would come out, unfortunately.
Oh, man. I failed to accomplish the assignment boss gave me. Is this… going to be the end of me?!
Bang! Her forehead scrunched up after she had closed the door in that imposing yet slow-witted man's face.
Still… I think I heard him mention Pei Ge.
That 'Miss Pei' must be my best friend, right?
Forget it; forget it. I'm probably overthinking things again. Let's just leave it be. I don't even know that person with the surname Shen. That big bloke probably got the wrong person.
"Xiaoyu, you should correct your temper a little. It's no good to chase someone out before hearing them out."
She was about to sink further into her thoughts about that big bloke when she heard her boyfriend, who was leaning on the headboard, softly say that.
She immediately pulled herself back to reality.
"Zhengrong, it's just that I really don't know any CEO Shen!" She acted cutesy to the man in the bed.
"Maybe you forgot about him, or it's someone you've never cared about."
"That's impossible! My memory is pretty good! I only know a handful of individuals with that surname, and all of them are not CEOs! That man probably mistook me for someone else!" She grinned from ear to ear as she confidently said this to the man.
"Oh, right! You actually answered the call on my phone moments ago! Didn't I tell not to do that before I went to the washroom?!" She expressed her dismay over that.
"… The phone kept ringing, and I couldn't just ignore it." The man frowned, fixing her with a complicated gaze.
"I said not to answer the calls meant for me. Even if the phone keeps ringing, you are forbidden from picking the call up!" She was adamant on this.
"Why? Why can't I answer it?" The man regarded her with his dark, piercing eyes.
His eyes seemed to be capable of seeing through her.Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.
Feeling that he had uncovered her deeply buried secret, she felt very guilty.
"Yo-You just woke up from your coma! I was just worried that the phone's radiation would affect your head and body." She swallowed discreetly as she gave this excuse.
The man frowned slightly at her words, and then he moved to speak, but she did not give him the chance to do so.
"Zhengrong, you are too much! You just woke up, yet you're saying that about me! I'm just doing this for your own good!" She lay her head on the man's thigh and pouted, feeling a little aggrieved.
"Do you know how worried I was while you were unconscious? I couldn't even eat or sleep properly. I also skipped work for so many days just to be by your side that I almost got fired by my boss, yet you actually treated me like this the moment you just woke up?"
The man lowered his head, his expression stiff, and eyed the woman lying on his legs with an aggrieved look.
Noting that she indeed looked thinner and fatigued, he finally decided to pat her head.
"You've suffered these few days. Go home to rest today."
She felt his warm palm on her head and her lips curled up into a blissful smile.
"No way. I want to stay here with you until you fully recuperate!"
… I'm sorry. Sometimes, love requires some scheming.
