Zhang Yang started to babble, “That’s because you were quite drunk. I asked you where your house was, and you told me that you didn’t have a house. It was a good thing that I used the last bit of the consciousness I had to find your phone and call your older brother to tell him that you’d stay at the hotel for the night and I’d send you home tomorrow morning.”
“Who knew that you’d start to act up again after we reached the hotel. You woke my friends to continue drinking, and I was even locked out afterwards.”
Xia Qingyi was slightly relieved after she had found out the truth bit by bit from Zhang Yang. She still had no idea why she could not remember anything after drinking alcohol, not to mention not being able to control her actions.
It was no wonder Mo Han had been so angry after he had heard that she had drank. Once she thought of Mo Han, however, Xia Qingyi would remember how Mo Han had acted when he had lost control of himself. Xia Qingyi shuddered in fear at the memory of him restraining her and touching her body without any reservations appearing at the front of his head.
Stop thinking about it. Stop thinking about it.
The next morning, the two of them had the most awkward meal ever as they quietly ate at the dining table.
Xia Qingyi had not spoken a single word to him throughout the entire meal.
Mo Han knew the reason behind her actions. He wanted to return to their original lifestyle with Xia Qingyi, though he had realized that everything that he did was wrong.
“What do you want to eat tonight? I’ll bring it back for you.” Mo Han spoke the first sentence for the morning just as breakfast was about to be finished.
Xia Qingyi merely shook her head, “You don’t have to.”
The two never spoke again.
Mo Han returned to his workaholic self, not giving any time for himself to rest. This made the people working in the law firm absolutely miserable, though they did not dare to speak up. There were unending meetings and endless documents to tidy. They had originally thought that their boss would reduce his working hours after his three-day holiday earlier, though the fact is that they had expected too much.
Mo Han was the only one who knew that he was like this because wanted to be distracted from what had happened with Xia Qingyi. Since yesterday, he would automatically think about his palm that had caressed her body and her suppressed tears when he had stopped. Mo Han felt absolutely helpless at this. He needed to use his work to fill and distract his brain.
“Do you think that Barrister Mo has been angered somehow? What’s wrong with him today? We’d been busy the whole day and he had said that we could knock off work on time. Yet, there came another new case last minute and there’s a bunch of legal documents to read. What do I do?” one of the employees of the law firm complained secretly to his colleague sitting next to him.
“Do you still not understand our Barrister Mo? He’s known for being a workaholic. You have to be prepared that you would sacrifice your body for the legal cause of your country as long as you’re working for him!” another employee added.
“I know, I know. If this goes on, I think I’d really sacrifice myself soon.” the employee had resentment written all over his face as he drank his coffee cross-legged.
“Well, if only Barrister Mo’s younger sister was here today.” one of the employee said suddenly.
“So what if she came?”
“It’ll be a lot better if she came, alright?! Don’t you realize? Our boss would definitely let us off work within half an hour every time our boss’ younger sister came to the law firm.” the employee said excitedly.
The employee who had first complained had a light bulb moment. “Oh! What you’re saying is the truth! It seemed to be like this every time!”
“Not only so, I think boss had gone on a trip with his younger sister when he took a three-day leave without any notice not long ago.”
“Yes! I heard Liu Zhiyuan say that it was boss’ younger sister who came up with the idea.”
“Wow! If that’s the case, boss has a really good relationship with his younger sister. They’d even gone on a trip together!”
The two chatted quietly in the pantry, making use of the little time they had while refilling their cups. They did not notice Mo Han, who just so happened to be standing by the door.
“I didn’t know boss had a younger sister last time. Now that I know, I’ve realized that our boss is absolutely whipped and protective of her.”
“Yes, yes, yes! I think so too.” she kept saying nonstop.
