“Here are the coffees for the both of you. Please enjoy.” The service staff brought the drinks up and interrupted their conversation.
Tan Bengbeng took her coffee from the service staff and stirred it gently with the teaspoon.
She lifted her head up and said, “Internationally, there are quite a number of new medical achievements. If the announcement of new research breakthroughs can help in clinical treatments and are useful for surgical operations or other therapies, I still would have to head over and take a look even if I dislike social interactions.”
As she said this, she lifted her cup up and took a sip of coffee.
The desserts were served one after another.
Both of them were hungry and did not speak much to each other as they ate their food.
Just when they were about to finish eating, Tan Bengbeng’s gaze landed on the Queen’s Ring on Nian Xiaomu’s ring finger. She seemed to have thought of something and suddenly asked, “Do you and Fan Yu know each other?”
“Sort of—we met a few times. He happened to pass by and saved me the other time when I was nearly kidnapped by Wen Yadai.” Nian Xiaomu placed her coffee down and couldn’t help but shudder wh she thought of what had happened that day.
Never had she thought that Wen Yadai would be so crazy.
She did not hesitate to pay money to kidnap her just for Yu Yuehan.
She wanted to ruin Nian Xiaomu.
She used love as an excuse to hurt the person she loved—A person like this was indeed very scary.
“This person, Fan Yu…” Nian Xiaomu tilted her head and gave it some thought. All of a sudden, she leaned forward and moved herself closer to Tan Bengbeng.
She turned around and glanced at the surroundings suspiciously to ensure that no one was paying attention to the both of them.
“I always felt that he was a little weird. You don’t know about this, but he bumped into me this morning at the mall. When he heard that I had forgotten about my past, he was suddenly very agitated and pestered me, asking me lots of questions—It was as if he wanted to know who my ancestors were from 18 generations ago.”
Nian Xiaomu complained, “He still continued asking even though I said that I had forgotten everything. I really don’t know what was he thinking.”
When Tan Bengbeng heard what Nian Xiaomu said, her hand that was holding onto the cup tightened silently.
Lifting her head up, she looked at Nian Xiaomu, but held back the words that were already on the tip of her tongue.
Nian Xiaomu did not take notice of her expression and continued talking, “To be honest, I don’t mean to come off like a narcissist, but do you think that Fan Yu took a liking to me?”
This continuous change of topic would make a person a little breathless as they tried to catch up.
Tan Bengbeng gave two light coughs. As she looked at Nian Xiaomu, she hesitated for a few seconds before saying, “Actually, he came to look for me today.”
Nian Xiaomu froze in shock!
It had never crossed her mind that Fan Yu would look for Tan Bengbeng. Just when she wanted to ask her something, Tan Bengbeng was a step faster and had already spoken first.
“He must have heard something about you, but wasn’t sure of details and hence came over to verify with me. However, you can rest assured because I didn’t tell him anything.”
Nian Xiaomu had always trusted Tan Bengbeng to keep her secrets.
Yet, why would Fan Yu want to know information about Nian Xiaomu?
Could he really be interested in her? Did he want to woo her…?
As Tan Bengbeng stared at her pensive look, she suddenly opened her mouth and asked, “Xiao Mumu, are you living a happy life now?”
“You were the one who told me that Young Master Han was treating you well, but have you ever thought about why you got together with him?”
Why did she get together with him…
This was obviously because she liked him.
Nian Xiaomu felt a suffocating feeling in her chest the moment she thought of separating from Yu Yuehan.
She only learned at that moment that she actually cared so much about him.
She cared so much about him that it ached when she was merely thinking of separating from him.
As for Fan Yu…
Nian Xiaomu thought of the first time she met him as well as the situation when he had saved her life afterward.
Just when she wanted to say something, Tan Bengbeng held her hand and said in a serious tone, “Xiao Mumu, listen to me. Stay further away from Fan Yu!”
