'Come-on Mei, say something… Your silence is eating me alive! Be it anger, but give me some reaction.' Feng Jianyu's heart was beating frantically, but he was unsure whether he is excited that she did not lash out at him or he is nervous that she didn't give any reaction at all.
Unable to handle the pool of emotions, she rubbed her head feeling dizzy.
'Either way, this is not the right time to deal with your inner emotions, Xiu Mei… Don't forget your resolve to take revenge… Your mission is to completely destroy Infinity Software and make Feng corporation suffer….'
'He is just acting innocent, don't get enchanted by him again…. He will deceive you again as he deceived you seven years back by snatching Infinity Software from you.'
She smiled self-deprecatingly, 'what an irony of life it is…. I created Infinity software to build a new identity for myself and to prove that bastard foster uncle of mine that I'm a living human and not a lifeless product to whom he could use for his own personal benefit. Today, that same Infinity software is like a needle stuck inside my heart for the last seven years and to end this unbearable pain, I've to destroy it completely….. I'll destroy it with my own hands…'
Xiu Mei took a deep breath and tried to mentally shrug all the wandering thoughts in her mind by clenching her eyes tightly. She let out a low grunt.
"I'm thirsty…" Giving a strange reply she turned away from Feng Jianyu to go inside the house, leaving him struggling for answers.
Feng Jianyu "…."
'That's it? She just went inside without giving me any reaction! Should I consider it good or bad… or very bad?' He pinched the space between his brows, 'Oh God, Mei, sometimes you're almost impossible to understand…. You just left me hanging in the mid-air, and the worst part is I cannot even ask you about it.'
THREE DAYS LATER…..
It was Saturday, and Xiu Mei doesn't work on weekends. Feng Jianyu had an important meeting to attend but he pushed Feng Junjie to attend it so that he could spend some more time with her.
Sitting in the back garden Igloo patio, they were eating lunch in each other's company. After that day when they kissed, Xiu Mei neither brought up the topic and nor she gave any reaction on it. She behaved as if something like this has never happened in between them.
Feng Jianyu also didn't dare to push his luck by asking her any question related to the topic, although he was dying to know her thoughts. But he restrained himself in order to not make her feel awkward. After all, he doesn't want to scare her away. She is too precious for him. He was satisfied thinking that at least she didn't give him any negative reaction. This is more than a positive response for him.
"Here… try this, it's really yummy!" He said, putting a piece of braised meat in her bowl and praised Aunt Mary's cooking, "Aunt Mary's cooking skills are really good."
Xiu Mei nodded, "Hmm…. No doubt about that! Her cooking skills are at par if compared to a professional chef."
Feng Jianyu gave a winning smile, noticing that she is behaving normally with him. They were just talking when his phone rang. He noticed that it was Feng Junjie calling him.
'Idiot! I told him not to call me when I'm with Mei'
"Speak" He answered the phone holding it with his left hand, while he keeps on adding vegetables with his right hand to Xiu Mei's bowl.
Feng Junjie: "Brother please come fast… " he sounded anxious.
