"Tell me," he said giving her his full attention.
"It's about my Dad." "En," he replied. "He agreed to have the surgery," she first said. "That is great. When is he having it?" he asked. "Soon but he gave me a condition," she uttered. "Condition? What is that?" Swallowing, she said," Uhm... that I get married first." Hearing this, Jin Liwei's body stiffened. He hadn't thought of getting married again yet but there was no doubt that she was the one he wanted to spend the rest of his life with. But if this was the condition, he couldn't do anything else but to for it. After all, the feelings were mutual. When he didn't say anything, she added," He said that he's doing it so that he can be sure that I'm in good hands." "Let's do it then. I will call my parents and inform them. When should I come to see them?" he asked and her body froze. He misunderstood the whole thing.
How was she going to break the news to him?
"Ah...Jin Liwei there's a problem," she said.
"What is that?" Li Fei felt her heart pounding in her chest when she nervously said, "H-he I-I mean they think that.... Jianyu is the right one for me." Hearing this, Jin Liwei immediately sat up and looked at her to ask," I'm not getting what you're saying." Gulping, she said," Uhm...He wants me to get married to Jianyu."
With this, he created distance between them so that he could clearly look at her. She was looking at him nervously waiting for what he had to say. "Why?" he finally asked.
"Because he has been so good to us but I- "
"Did you agree to it?" he asked before she could complete. "I told my Dad yes but- "
She watched him get up and left the parlour.
She quickly got up and followed him saying," It's going to be a fake engagement! It is not real! I just want him to have his surgery."
He went to the bedroom and she saw him change his clothes. Her eyes widened in surprise. Was he leaving? "Jin Liwei please listen to me! I'm not going to get married to him! Everything is fake," she said but he didn't mind her. He got his jacket and wore it. She caught his hands to stop his movements and craned her neck to look at him with her eyes glistening with tears. "Don't touch me," he told her. She shook her head and said," I will touch you however much I want."
He took a deep breath and said," You said an engagement party?" "Yes. It's just a way of convincing my Dad that we are going to get married so that he can agree to have the surgery," she explained expectantly. "He will touch you! The news will spread that you're his and I can't take that! You belong to me, me alone!" he declared. "You belong to me too. I can convince my Mom such that we don't invite any reporters," she said thinking it will make him feel better. "I can't share you with anyone Li Fei. Even if it's not real," he explained and walked away. "It's just for a moment. Please give me some time," she said following him but he left the house.
She remained at the porch watching him get in the car and he drove away.
What was she going to do? Was he going back to Shanghai? She ran to get her phone and called him several times but he didn't pick up. She slumped on the couch and tears fell from her eyes. Why didn't he understand that she was doing this for him, for them!
After calling him several times, she decided to leave him and later, she was taken by sleep.
A long while later, she was woken up by her ringing phone and she immediately checked it hoping that it was him only to find Liling. Answering, she said," Let me hope I didn't interrupt. I wanted to call you earlier but I thought you were busy." "I'm not busy," she answered. "What is the matter? You don't seem to be fine." "I'm not. I told him about the engagement and he got furious. He even left and I've been calling him but he doesn't pick up," she said. "That's not good. What are we going to do? Can I perhaps ask Jing Yue to talk to him?"
"No, leave him. I think he needs sometime. I will just wait for him here," she said. "Okay but just inform me if you need any help. Anyway I wanted to tell you that I got the place for my restaurant. I can't wait for you to see it." "Congratulations I'm happy for you. I will be coming to see it when I get time." When the call ended, she called Jin Liwei's phone again but it was off and she slept back on the couch.
It was in the afternoon when Jianyu heard a knock on the door and he came to open.
On seeing the person standing by the door, his suspicions were all cleared. Somehow seeing him here gave him an idea of why he came. "Mr Jin Liwei, please come in," he said and Jin Liwei glared at him before stepping in. Closing the door behind him, he turned to say," What can I offer you?" "This is not a friendly visit Yan Jianyu. You know why I'm here," he said glaring at him coldly.
"Should I guess it's about Li Fei?" he asked and Jin Liwei's eyes narrowed seeing the way he sweetly called her.
"Stay away from my woman!" he said maintaining his glare.
"That may not be possible because we are going to get engaged," he said and Jin Liwei grabbed him by his collar.
"I didn't do anything! Her parents asked us to get married. They think I'm the best man for her." With this, he lost it and punched him hard in the face. He raised his head to look at him as his hand checked the bruise he had inflicted on his mouth.
