Ning Meng was frightened and her hands trembled when she saw that voice call. She sat up immediately.
She stared at her phone for a short while before picking it up and putting it on speaker mode.
The night was dark and everything else was so quiet.
She had switched off the light in her bedroom. No one was talking on the phone, she could only hear his breathing clearly.
Ning Meng was nervous, and she held her breath.
After a short while, the man broke the silence first.
His soft laughter seemed like a stone that had been thrown into a pond in her calm and quiet heart, creating endless ripples.
“Why aren’t you talking?”
The man’s voice came to her through the phone. His voice became rather deep and sentimental.
Ning Meng forced her fluttering heart to calm down as she said slowly, “Lord Chen, you’re the one who sent me the message first, shouldn’t you be the one who talks first?”
Then, she realized that she sounded sweet and cute. So, she coughed immediately and said in a more normal voice. “Is there anything?”
The man spoke in a deep voice. “I need to be away on business for three days.”
Was he telling her about his schedule?
The thought delighted Ning Meng. It was as though she had eaten some honey and she felt a whole lot of sweetness in her heart.
She replied softly, “Alright.”
“What did you eat tonight?”
Ning Meng told him what she had eaten gently and slowly. Then, she asked him, “Have you eaten?”
The man did not speak much although he was the one who had called her.
Ning Meng said playfully, “Lord Chen, although nothing counts but love, you should really go and eat something. Don’t go starving.”
The man was stunned. He asked back, “Nothing counts but love?”
Ning Meng was stunned.
“Fine, I’ll go and drink some water now.”
Ning Meng was speechless.
In the past, she could easily say all kinds of nice and lovey-dovey things, moreover, she felt nothing when she said those kinds of things to Huo Beichen. However, she became nervous all of a sudden when Huo Beichen repeated what she had said when he responded to her.
Ning Meng could feel that her cheeks were burning hot, and not knowing what else to say, she hastily said, “I…I’ll sleep first!’
Then, she hung up the phone before he could say anything else.
She lay down on the bed again and covered her face.
When she had finally calmed down, she realized that he had not brought up what had happened earlier on. He had not mentioned the divorce. It seemed as though he had realized that she might be embarrassed because of it. It was in the past now.
Just when she was having all kinds of thoughts, her phone vibrated again. Ning Meng looked down and saw…
Huo Beichen: [Goodnight.jpg]
It was a GIF of a bunny girl who was sleeping while hugging the carrot.
Ning Meng smiled. She wrote a reply: [Goodnight.]
She held the phone and lay on the bed. Then, she thought about it for a moment and opened the chatbox again before scrolling the messages up slightly. She clicked on the man’s voice message, listening to it again. “So, you were jealous today.”
Ning Meng closed her eyes.
It was true. She had indeed been jealous for the past few days.
That night, Ning Meng slept soundly. Moreover, she had a peculiar dream.
She returned to the time when she was still a student and Huo Beichen had been playing basketball. She handed him a bottle of water.
He gulped down the water under the sunlight, his Adam’s apple moving up and down. There were even some sweatdrops rolling down his neck from his cheeks.
It was sexy and seductive.
She laughed and said something as the man smiled and said, “I don’t want to eat anything else since nothing counts but love, isn’t it?”
In the morning, Ning Meng woke up in a daze feeling slightly blurry.
She stared at the ceiling as she puzzled about it.
That dream had seemed quite real.
It was so real that it seemed as though it was an event that had happened before…
