109 Falling in Love

 But, to make something like this, she had to find other people in his company for help. Therefore, she met up with Mo Han's assistant Liu Zhiyuan outside alone to discuss about it.

Mo Han did not know why Xia Qingyi would find Liu Zhiyuan alone. He heard Xiao Zhang from the office front desk saying that he had seen his sister and Liu Zhiyuan on a date outside, so Xiao Zhang was asking around whether the two of them were already together.

Mo Han felt that it was impossible; how could she be dating Liu Zhiyuan? He was more curious about what the two of them would talk about when they were outside.

So, Mo Han went to ask Xia Qingyi the next day. Xia Qingyi only said that she needed some information for her homework, and that Liu Zhiyuan had the required information, so she asked him to look at it.

She was playing with the phone as she said the sentence, her eyes glued on the screen, the corners of her mouth slightly lifted in a smile, and she was not paying any attention to him.

Mo Han knew that she was lying. He felt a little uncomfortable that Xia Qingyi was inexplicably hiding something from him. He wanted to continue asking her, but Xia Qingyi vaguely said that she was going to her room and left.

Her eyes were still on her phone as she walked. Mo Han felt that was strange, as she clearly had not liked to play with her phone that frequently in the past, and so he sneakily peeked at her screen.

The chatting screen had Liu Zhiyuan's name.

This startled Mo Han. It could not be as Xiao Zhang said.

He reflexively stopped Xia Qingyi at once. "You... Liu Zhiyuan..."

"What is it?"

"Are you two dating?"

Xia Qingyi smiled and looked at him. "What're you talking about?"

"He's wooing you?"

Xia Qingyi was speechless, and gave him a wry smile. "Where did you get that from?"

"Or it could be, you like him?" Mo Han asked again.

Xia Qingyi pushed Mo Han away. "Eh, Brother, being suspicious of your sister is not good, isn't it? Do I, your sister, look like I like him?"

"Then why are you so close with Liu Zhiyuan lately?" Mo Han asked, returning back to the usual cold demeanor he had at work.

"Didn't I already tell you? There are some things that I needed his help to negotiate and communicate on."

"Negotiate and communicate between just the two of you?" Mo Han shot back.

"So what? We are just two people sitting together to talk with each other. Besides, even if there's really something between us, even if we were really dating, it's not a big deal."

"No," Mo Han said, frowning.

"Why not?"

"You're too young, it's not good to date now."

Xia Qingyi imagined herself rolling her eyes, young, my foot! I'm already an university student!

But she thought of what she wanted to do, and she suppressed her real feelings and said, "Brother, don't worry, I'm not dating that handsome dude. Wait till I'm really dating someone, and you'd definitely be the first person I'd show him to!"

Just thinking about Xia Qingyi dating in the future, that there would be a man she would point to and say that he was her boyfriend made him feel uncomfortable.

Mo Han did not say anything more in the end, and let Xia Qingyi go to sleep. In his mind, he was planning to find Liu Zhiyuan to talk to him about this matter, as he still felt a little worried.

He did not know whether he was worried about Liu Zhiyuan, or worried about Xia Qingyi.

Two days later, Mo Han's workload increased. Xia Qingyi did not know what he was busy with; she had not called him in the morning for the past few days, and she was already asleep when he returned home. She had to hurry for class and rushed off early the next morning, so the two of them had not seen each other. Mo Han originally wanted to call her to ask about what was happening recently, but discovered that he did not know how to do it, because it was usually Xia Qingyi who would take the initiative to call him.
