Chapter 450 We Have Nothing to Do with Each Other
“Don’t bluff.” Anna Xie said.
“That’s what the doctor said. You can ask the doctor yourself if you don’t believe me.” Yulin Xiao said.
“Even so, it’s your fault.” Anna said.
Yulin thought Anna would thank him. To his surprise, however, Anna made unfounded countercharges and blamed him. “What does this have to do with me?” Yulin said with his eyes wide open.
“You gave me that thin dress on purpose yesterday. You asked me to wait on you today when I am sick today. The barbecue restaurant is smoky and I fainted out of fatigue finally. Doesn’t this have something to do with you?” Anna said.
After hearing that, Yulin was speechless and he said, “How come your focus is always so weird?”
“You don’t think I’m right? If so, you can contradict me.” Anna said.
As Anna spoke, she was ready to pull out the needle and leave.
Yulin stopped Anna’s crazy move. “Are you crazy? Just lie down.” Yulin said with a frown.
“I’m not your pet who is under your command.” Anna said.
Grabbing Anna’s shoulders, Yulin said with a serious look, “Pet? Anna, I am not just having fun with you?”
“So what am I to you?” Anna asked.
“Er…er…” Yulin said.
Yulin lost his tongue suddenly and didn’t know what to say.
“What kind of feelings do I have for Anna? Do I like her? A little, I think. And only a little.” Yulin thought.
Yulin found himself a convincing excuse and then said righteously, “I can’t bear to see you be bullied as you are so stupid, so I want to protect you.”
“I don’t need you to protect me. My life would be less troubled if you leave me alone.” Anna said.
“I was trying to help you.” Yulin said.
“I had more and more problems in my life after I met you. I don’t think you’re trying to help me.” Anna said.
“Anna, are you despising me?” Yulin asked.
Anna drooped her eyelashes and said with a trace of loneliness, “You are the most handsome man in Capital City, and how dare I despise you? I just don’t think I deserve to be your friend.”
“You can be my friend as long as I think you have the right to be.” Yulin said.
“Can I now voluntarily give up being your friend?” Anna said.
“No!” Yulin said in a resolute and decisive way.
Anna smiled gently and said, “See, I am at beck and call for you.”
Yulin was almost mad with anger. “I have made myself clear. Why can’t she understand? She is a blockhead.” Yulin thought.
“Anna Xie, are you a woman or not? Don’t you see that I care about you?” Yulin said angrily with round eyes.
“I can see that.” Anna said.
“Then why did you deliberately say such nonsense? Are you trying to provoke me on purpose?” Yulin said.
Anna shook her head and said, “How dare I do that? I am nothing more than a plaything that you are interested in now, or a companion when you are crossed in love. If you are pleased, I should be pleased, and if you are not pleased, I should go away myself so as not to annoy you.”
Yulin got closer to Anna and looked her in the eye, saying, “If you’re really just a plaything, why should I care if you live or die? Without you, I will find a more obedient one.”
Suddenly Anna looked up and stared at Yulin, asking, “What am I to you?”
Yulin was speechless. After thinking for a while, he said equivocally, “You are special to me.”
“What’s special about me?” Anna questioned closely.
Recalling all the things that happened after them met, Yulin said slowly, “When you get hurt, I worry about you. When you’re not happy, I’m trying to cheer you up. Seeing someone hurt you makes me so angry that I want to kill him. If someone bullies you, I couldn’t help avenging you.”
Yulin said that very seriously and Anna couldn’t help believing in his words.
With a trace of expectation in her eyes, Anna said, “What do you think your words mean?”
There seemed to be an answer appearing in the bottom of Yulin’s heart.
But he didn’t want to admit that he’s attracted to Anna, so he turned away from Anna and said, “I don’t know. Anyway, you’re special.”
“Yulin, I’m scared.” Anna said.
“What are you scared of? Who hurt you again?” Yulin said.
“I’m scared of you.” Anna said.
After hearing that, Yulin was helpless. “Me? Are you kidding me? I will only protect you.” Yulin said.
Anna shook her head and said, “If someone hurts me, I will defend myself with my armor, but that’s not the case when it comes to dealing with you. You put a knife directly into my heart, and I don’t have the strength to resist.”
After pausing for a while, Anna screwed her courage up and said, “Yulin, let’s not contact anymore.”
Yulin was stunned for a while and spluttered, “After all I’ve said, this is the result you’re giving me?”
“So what do you want? You are just having fun with me. Do you expect me to treat you sincerely? Yulin, I have my limits.” Anna said.
“How do you know I’m just having fun with you?” Yulin asked.
“Because there is someone else in your heart. Can you fall in love with someone else without forgetting Wei Yu?” Anna said.
Yulin clenched his fists and nodded, saying, “You’re right. I am just having fun with you. Now I take a liking to you and I want you to stay with me. Dare you disobey me?”
Although Anna’s heart ached, she smiled sweetly. She seemed relieved and said, “You’re finally telling the truth. You make me feel better the way you are now.”
Yulin thought Anna’s smile offending to the eyes. “Just lie in the bed. You can’t go anywhere without my orders.” Yulin said with a cold facial expression.
“No way. I have to go back to school.” Anna said.
“I’ve asked for sick leave for you. You just need to take rest and nourishment to regain your health.” Yulin said.
“You’ve asked leave for me again? There were so many rumors the last time I asked for leave. Will this time…” Anna said.
“With me here, no one dares do that.” Yulin said.
After saying that, Yulin turned and left, without giving Anna the chance to say no.
Looking at the view of Yulin’s back, Anna looked vacant.
Anna couldn’t understand Yulin. Sometimes he is nice to her, sometimes he is overbearing. Anna thought Yulin is utterly unpredictable.
But Anna would rather Yulin treated her badly, because in this way she won’t be reluctant to leave when she has to leave.
Closing her eyes, Anna forced herself to stop woolgathering. She could only cope with shifting events when she is calm.
At some point, Anna fell asleep.
When she woke up, it was dark outside the window.
With her stomach rumbling, Anna felt hungry.
Anna got up and got out of bed. She wanted to find something to eat.
Although she was in a bad mood and her head was still dizzy, she wanted to eat. Just as the saying goes, food is the essentials to people. She can only have the strength to plot her way out when she is full.
But as soon as Anna opened the door, she came face-to-face with an old lady.
Anna was shocked, but the old lady was calm. With a loving smile, the old lady asked, “Girl, you are awake.”
“May I ask who are you?” Anna said.
“Master Yulin asked me to take care of you. You can call me Mrs. Chang.” The old woman said.
As Mrs. Chang spoke, she walked past Anna.
“When Master Yulin asked me to take care of a girl, I was taken aback. I thought Master Yulin made the girl pregnant and he daren’t let his mother know, so he asked me to take care of the girl secretly. I didn’t breathe a sigh of relief until I saw you. I’ve been with Master Yulin since he was a child. He wouldn’t ask me to take care of someone casually, so you are special to him.” Mrs. Chang murmured as she walked.
After hearing that, Anna was embarrassed. “Well, we don’t know each other well.” Anna said.
“Really?” Mrs. Chang said.
Mrs. Chang didn’t say much, but her mere word made Anna guilty.
“You must be hungry after sleeping for such a long time. This is the dinner I prepared for you. Just eat some.” Mrs. Chang said.
Only then did Anna see that there’s a tray in Mrs. Chang’s hand. She reached out to take it and a smell of delicious food came.
“It smells good.” Anna said.
“As you’re sick, you probably don’t have much appetite, so I cooked preserved egg and lean pork porridge for you especially. Try it and see if you like it.” Mrs. Chang said.
Anna eagerly picked up the spoon and took a mouthful of porridge. With a contented facial expression, Anna said, “It’s delicious.”
“You can eat more if you like it.” Mrs. Chang said.
As Mrs. Chang smiled lovingly, Anna felt a sense of closeness to her.
As Anna was relaxed, she had a good appetite. Unconsciously, she ate two bowls of porridge.
Mrs. Chang’s temper is quite pleasing.
Anna could help but wonder how Mrs. Chang could put up with Yulin.
“Girl, what’s the relationship between you and Master Yulin?” Mrs. Chang asked.
Although Mrs. Chang is old, she has good eyes. As soon as Mrs. Chang saw Yulin’s behaviors, she knew Yulin and Anna are not just friends.
But as Yulin is arrogant, he won’t tell Mrs. Chang the truth, so Mrs. Chang tried to ask Anna instead.
Anna put down her spoon and was silent for a moment, then she said, “I have nothing to do with him.”
“Why you two give me the same answer? Do you really think I am dim-sighted from old age? Though Master Yulin is eccentric and unreasonable, he is a reliable man. If you marry him, you’ll be happy.” Mrs. Chang said with a smile on her face.
After hearing that, Anna’s face became red. “Mrs. Chang, you misunderstood us. I and Yulin are really not in a relationship. Don’t talk nonsense.” Anna said.
“I am not talking nonsense. All I’m saying is, if you marry him, you’ll be happy, but it depends on you whether to marry him or not.” Mrs. Chang said.
Mrs. Chang looked innocent, as if she was just saying it casually and Anna was taking it seriously.
This made Anna even more embarrassed and she kept her head down.
From the moment Mrs. Chang came in, she has been watching Anna.
Mrs. Chang could see that Anna is good-natured and kind. She thought Anna is completely different from Wei.
“It’s not a bad thing if Anna could be Yulin’s girlfriend. But there’s some problems between them two and the problems will become their heart knots if they are not solved in time. As the matter of love, no matter how anxious others are, they can’t help. Yulin and Anna have to figure it out by themselves.” Mrs. Chang thought.
Mrs. Chang sighed lightly and felt she should so something to help them solve the problems, lest them idle their time away.
After dinner, Anna was alone in her room and she was a little bored.
As Yulin didn’t come to Anna, Anna thought he was angry with her.
With Yulin’s temper, he would really keep Anna stay there if he doesn’t want Anna to leave.
Anna has nothing to do lately. As she had asked for a leave, it made no difference where she’s.
Besides, as she’s not in the school, those rumors would die down. The disturbance might be over when she goes back to school.
But there’s an exam around the corner and Anna had no study material, so Anna was troubled.
After thinking for a while, Anna took out her phone and made a phone call.
“Hello, Qiqi, could you please do me a favor?” Anna said.
“Anna, where have you been? Why haven’t you come back?” Qiqi said.
“Well, I am sick and convalescing at a friend’s house. Could you bring the study materials for me tomorrow? The exam is coming. If I don’t review, I’m afraid I won’t pass.” Anna said.
“OK. Where are you? I have no classes tomorrow afternoon and I can take the study materials to you.” Qiqi said.
After telling Qiqi the address, Anna hung up the phone.
Then Anna turned to look out of the window blankly.
“Why the more I want to escape from a place, the more I am stuck in it? Why can’t I lose contact with the one I want to elude most?” Anna thought.
With a slight sigh, Anna rested her chin on her knees and looked pale.
After Mrs. Chang left Anna’s room, she went to the kitchen.
But at the door of the kitchen, Mrs. Chang saw Yulin.
Leaning against the door with folded arms, Yulin coughed and asked, “Well, has Anna eaten the porridge?”
“Yes. She has a good appetite and she ate a lot.” Mrs. Chang said.
After hearing what Mrs. Chang said, Yulin snorted and said, “She is heartless.”
“Master Xiao, I don’t understand what you’re saying. It was you who told me to cook delicious food and do everything I can to make Anna eat more. Why you are not happy when she ate a lot?” Mrs. Chang said.
“I am not unhappy. I just said that casually. It’s late and I should go back to sleep. Mrs. Chang, have an early rest.” Yulin said.
After saying that, Yulin turned to leave.
Looking at the view of Yulin’s back, Mrs. Chang smiled helplessly.
The next day, Qiqi went to see Anna according to the address Anna had given her.
The servant took Qiqi to Anna’s room and brought tea and snacks to them.
With the servant around, Qiqi pretended to be poker-faced.
But as soon as the servant left, Qiqi became excited immediately as a different person.
“It’s so beautiful here. You also have servants to serve you. Anna, you are like the young mistress in TV series. You are so lucky.” Qiqi said.
Anna smiled and said carelessly, “Am I lucky? I don’t think so.”
“A lot of people want to live your life. You needn’t worry yourself about clothing and food and you have servants to serve you. Besides, you have such a handsome boyfriend. Your life is perfect.” Qiqi said.
Then Anna looked at Qiqi seriously and said, “Qiqi, Yulin is not my boyfriend.”
Qiqi blinked and asked confusedly, “He’s so nice to you. How come he’s not your boyfriend?”
“The reason why he is so nice to me is…” Anna said. The words were on Anna’s lips, but she was unable to speak them out, because the words would make her look pathetic. Anna then turned her head and said, “Forget it, you don’t understand.”
“You’re not thinking too much, are you?” Qiqi said.
Qiqi picked up a piece of cake and put it in her mouth. She ate happily and had a look of enjoyment on her face.
