Chris smiled, but it wasn’t a genuine smile. He said to Ye Sijue, “Mr. Ye, you’re still unwell. I think you should rest more. If there is anything you want to talk about, you can talk about it after you have recovered. Annie and I…”
He looked at Annie, his smile befitting that of a prince, before saying, “We are getting engaged the day after tomorrow, so we still have many things to discuss.”
Ye Sijue’s eyes darkened, his face stiff as he looked up and met Chris’s gaze.
In that moment, their eyes seemed to be crossing swords.
“Chris…” Annie said, breaking free of Chris’s grip as she stared at him. “Let me… talk to him alone for a while, okay? I’ll go meet you later.”
There was no obvious anger in Chris’s behavior as he stepped back, bowing graciously.
“Okay, I just happened to have something to do as well. I’ll wait for you in the study.”
“Okay.” Annie nodded.
Chris then walked out of the room.
Annie’s gaze was fixed on him as he left.
Suddenly, a hand reached out and bossily pinched her chin to make her face forward.
“Stop looking at him,” Ye Sijue said in a hoarse voice, looking visibly jealous.
Annie was startled. Glancing at the person beside her, she instructed the helpers to leave them.
Reading the situation, the doctor left the antipyretic and went out with the helpers.
Only the two of them were left.
“Xiaomeng…” Ye Sijue said, placing his other hand over hers.
Annie looked at him, her eyes evasive. Before he could finish, she interrupted, “You’re sweating a lot. Let me wipe you.”
She picked up the towel by the side, leaned over, and placed the towel on his forehead.
However, Ye Sijue grabbed her other hand as well.
“Don’t do anything. Just be quiet and listen to me, okay?” Ye Sijue’s voice was not as hoarse as it was earlier, perhaps due to the soup he ate.
“What do you want to tell me?” Annie asked, her eyes wide.
Ye Sijue’s blue eyes were very beautiful. Even though he was sick at the moment, his eyes still shone like sapphires.
Ever since she knew him, Annie had been very curious to know how his eyes were blue and beautiful.
His eyes were the prettiest that she had ever seen.
“Do you still remember what I said to you before you fainted?” Ye Sijue’s grip tightened as he said very seriously.
Annie pursed her lips but did not answer.
Ye Sijue was very perceptive.
She had looked very happy when he said what he had said to her before falling in the lake.
But now, why did it seem like her expression was different?
“Y-you say it then,” Annie stuttered.
As Ye Sijue thought about how to express himself, he lifted her little hand, brought it to his lips, and kissed it.
“I don’t quite know how to express this…” He was a little embarrassed, as though he were an inexperienced boy confessing for the first time, “But I really want you to know.”
