Chapter 383: Silky voice
Fang Chixia’s alcohol tolerance wasn’t that low, but at the same time not that high. After a few glasses, her mind became fuzzy.
While reason was still there, she called Luo Yibei by going to the bathroom.
This is the retreat she’s laid out for herself tonight. If she wins Rongxi’s bid tonight, then it would be for the best.
If she couldn’t tough it out, she would ask Luo Yibei for help.
As long as Luo Yibei is around, such a huge problem doesn’t feel burdensome at all.
Fang Chixia came here after thinking about her escape route, and the layout is relatively cautious.
When calling Luo Yibei in the bathroom, her voice was a bit drunk, “Luo Yibei …”
Due to her drunkenness, her voice sounded all the more silky and sweet as honey.
Luo Yibei was stumped. He first wondered if something’s wrong with her today to go as far as to call him so softly, his bones could turn jelly many times over.
However, as soon as he heard the hint of drunkenness in her voice, he immediately became furious, “Where are you? What are you doing wandering outside in the middle of the night instead of going home?”
“I’m at the Hilton, come over!” Fang Chixia simply dropped the hotel’s name, turned her phone off, and turned to the sink to wash her flushed face.
She wanted to wake herself up, she filled both hands with water and she patted her face again and again, but nothing seemed to work.
At the beeping sound of disconnection, Luo Yibei’s rage ran red through his brain.
Su ran was opposite him as the two were still having dinner. Noticing the gloom that swallowed his face, she asked hesitantly, “What’s wrong?”
“Nothing. I still have a matter to deal with so I’ll leave first. Go home later.” Luo Yibei took his coat and walked briskly out of the restaurant without looking back.
He was in a hurry, evident from his fast pace, as though rushing to someone important, never sparing her another glance.
His head was full of Fang Chixia’s words just now, and her velvety voice struck him as if she’s on the verge of death.
The more Luo Yibei thought of a possible scenario, the more he got upset. What kind of torment did that silly girl tossed herself into?
Su Ran sat stiffly on the chair and watched him leave calmly, her heart sinking into the valley.
Did he just leave so anxiously because of Fang Chixia?
She has known Luo Yibei at a very young age, when she was about three years old.
She is 20 now and they have known each other for 17 years.
17 years was long enough for her to know that the Luo Yibei in her memory wasn’t one to set his heart on anything and has always treated everyone with cold detachment.
Since when has his mood fluctuate this much?
But because of Fang Chixia, he has entirely embodied a different persona….
Su Ran sat still, watching until the shadow of his car disappeared into the night, but her heart that now seemed soaked in ice was completely cold.
Fang Chixia stayed in the bathroom for a long time in hopes of waiting till Luo Yibei could come, but Shang Rui somehow found her.
“Are you alright?” He’s pretty decent. Despite being a rogue, at least he hasn’t brought drugs into the play.
Fang Chixia’s consciousness was actually now in a state of coma and was a bit unsteady on her feet. But afraid that she’d commit a blunder when she falls unconscious, she held firmly onto her rationale and showed up fine.
“I’m fine. I’ll go for a breather outside and come back later.” She straightened her back and excused herself, but Shang Rui grabbed her wrist just in time.
