After dinner, Feng Jianyu brought her to his room in Feng Manor. The room was one of the biggest rooms in the manor with the neutral tone of colors, wide floor to ceiling windows and a wall full of books on various subjects and autobiography of famous personalities. The furniture was minimal but classy just how he prefers.
Surprisingly, he noticed a swing in the balcony and understood that it must be his father's idea as Xiu Mei likes it. There are over eight types is swings in her Mountain villa, installed in every corner wherever he sits.
"You freshen up first; I'll use the other bathroom." Feng Jinyu took out one of his t-shirts from the cupboard and gave it to her. "Butler Chen's wife has already arranged your stuff in the cupboard. Be careful with the bandage."
After bath Xiu Mei sat down in front of the mirror with a hairdryer. Feng Jianyu was already done bathing and took the hairdryer from her hands to do it for her. He loved the touch of her silky smooth hair against his fingers.
He looked through the mirror and saw her too quiet today. Hold on! She is behaving oddly since she went after Junjie to talk to him. But while searching for Xiu Mei he had asked Junjie who informed him he has not met her.
He takes the lead and took her to the bed holding her in his arms. He held on to her slim waist and kissed her she reciprocated but her fierce passion was missing.
He brushed his lips on hers. "Want to share? I'll take away the pain that's bothering my baby."
Xiu Mei suddenly looked like she was about to cry and hugged him tightly, burying her face in his strong chest.
Zian stepped on the brakes abruptly; the wheels made a loud screech as it stopped; the momentum pushed his body forward before bringing him back to the seat.
"Call girlfriend!" he ordered, his eyes looking outside the car at a distance.
The next second a sweet voice echoed in the car, "So finally you got time for me? Go now, I won't talk to you. I'm busy!"
"Hey beautiful, don't sulk, come to video chat. Let me see you," saying he held the phone with both hands and pushed the driver's seat backward.
"Woww…. You look different. Different in a nice way!" She mused rubbing her chin. Everything is same as before yet he seems different. She gazed at him for a minute...Oh yes! His eyes are shining, the glow on his face is never seen before. "Won't you share your happiness with mom?"
He grinned, "Mommm…. Cough… I mean, girlfriend… I'm happy because I found our lost treasure. Now, whenever I see it my heart blooms into happiness. Simple!....anyway... Tell me whether you took your medicines?" He changed the subject instantly.
His twisted reply puzzled her. What lost treasure? She shook her head; it's not the first time when she had received a weird response from him. As long as her son his happy she is happiest. "Yaa….. I took it. Stop pestering me." She recalled something, "Oh yes, Zian…. Talk to your grandfather once. He and your grandmother would come to Country H in a day or two for a business meeting, pick them up from the airport on time. By the way, when are you planning to return? You went there for surgery, how come the trip got extended to over two weeks?"
"I'm not in Country H." He answered truly, without breaking eye contact with his mother. And before she could ask any further he blurted out, "I'm in China, Imperial city."
The phone dropped from his mother's hand. However, the video chat continued, and he could vaguely see her panicked reaction. Her heavy breathing as she closed her eyes for a minute and bend forwards.
The next second she lifted up and there was a glass of water as she drinks from it. His expression relaxed.
She picked the phone again, "Zian, what was the need to go there? Didn't you say you'll be going to Country H, then how come you reached China? How many times do I've to tell you I don't like that country? It's the place where….."
"... where you lost dad and sister forever. I know!" He finished the sentence for her, "It was an important surgery on year-old conjoined baby girls. I could not say no to it. Just a few more pending surgeries and then I'll be back. I promise! Please..."
He didn't lie about the girls' surgery. The only difference was that it was not planned, the request came up when he had already reached the Imperial City for Xiu Mei, but anyway took the case.
Hearing about the year-old baby girls, she was tongue-tied. She wanted to retort but words refused to come out of her mouth. She tried to calm down her frantic breathing, "Where are you staying? Which hotel? I want every piece of information."
"Girlfriend, please relax! Stress is not good for your health." He coaxed her, maintaining his relaxed attitude and a smile that was now become forced. "Rest assured, I'm staying at Qiao Ting's house. And not so surprisingly Grandfather Li and Grandmother Wengyan have shifted all their attention from Qiao Ting to me." He chuckled, but that did not lift his mother's mood.
"I'll talk to them, how could they not tell me you're in Imperial city. This is so not done Zian, I'm your mother. You should have at least taken me into confidence." She placed a hand on her forehead, "Whom am I talking to? You've grown up now, why would you bother to inform this woman who is getting older and older."
Zian wanted to roll his eyes. Here goes the same old emotional blackmailing. "Older? Where is the old woman? I can only see a sexy hot beautiful lady in front of me." He saw a small smile on the corners of her lips and chuckled, "Stop suppressing the smile that's threatening to crawl up. Before I hung up, show me that dazzling breath-taking smile that makes my heart run wildly."
She felt helpless in front of her son's flirty nature. No matter how hard she tries, he always makes her give in to his demands, bringing a smile on her face.
"On one condition."
"You'll take care of your health and will talk to me daily. Otherwise, I'm skipping my medicine."
"NO! Don't you dare skip your medicine." He sternly scolded her. "And yes, I will take care of myself and talk to you daily. Promise!"
