Sophie’s gentle look suddenly became serious. “What did you say?” she asked.
“Brother Wolf and Ivana are staying in Phoenix. I talked to Hans about this. Flagstaff is too small. Our business cannot develop here, we need to go to a bigger city.”
Sophie lost her temper with Li Du for the first time. She shoved the flowers back to him, grabbed her bag, and walked forward quickly with her head lowered.
Li Du hurriedly caught up with her. “What? Is the lovely girl angry?”
“Angry? Am I angry?” Sophie looked back at him angrily. “No, I’m not angry, I’m sad, sad!”
“If you don’t like me going to Phoenix, I’ll stay at Flagstaff,” smiled Li Du.
Sophie pushed him away and continued walking. “It doesn’t matter where you go. I respect your choice. But you have to respect me too. Ask yourself, did you ever respect my choice?”
“I didn’t expect you to get back to work so soon,” Li Du said.
Sophie said, “Yeah, it’s not a big deal. Your home isn’t in Flagstaff, your job isn’t in Flagstaff. You can go to Australia, you can go to Phoenix.”
Listening to her, Li Du understood her anger.
Sophie was different from him and Hans after all; her home and work were here, her life circle was here, and all her space was here.
Li Du did not negotiate with her in advance and abruptly brought up leaving Flagstaff to go to Phoenix. To her, this was a thunderbolt of news.
“I’m sorry, Sophie, I thought about this matter too simply. But if you don’t want to go now, I can stay in Flagstaff.”
Listening to his apology, Sophie’s expression softened and she said, “I’m not”
Just as she started speaking, Li Du’s phone rang.
Seeing this, Sophie said, “Answer the phone first.”
When the phone got through, Luo Qun asked, “When are you going to Phoenix? I don’t know if we can make it all the way, but my job transfer went smoothly.”
Luo Qun is used to being a loud policeman, so even if that was not speaker mode, Sophie and Li Du were standing close, so she could hear her words.
After hearing what she said, Sophie’s originally improved mood immediately turned from sunny to cloudy, to light rain, and gradually tp showing signs of thunderstorms.
Li Du ignored Luo Qun who was talking and directly hung up on her.
As soon as he hung up the phone, Sophie’s thunderstorm burst. “What do you mean? You don’t tell me about this but you tell the other girls?! Tell me, what does that mean?”
Everything seemed wrong. Li Du himself did not know how to explain.
Mainly because he didn’t consider this emotionally, thinking that Phoenix was a small matter, that Sophie would understand them, and that she could just resign her job and let him take care of her.
He explained to Sophie that she wasn’t listening and that his apology made sense.
The two had been happily together for a long time. Li Du overlooked that Sophie was the only child in the family, she had her own small temper, and that once it burst it would be violent.
Li Du had no experience in this area. He could only use the cold treatment, but frustrated he returned to the cabin.
When Hans saw that he had lost his nerve, he wondered, “What’s the matter? Got myasthenia syndrome?”
Li Du was in no mood to joke with him and told the story at once.
When Hans heard that Luo Qun had called, he showed pity and said, “You are out of luck.”
Li Du sighed, “Yes, now what should I do?”
Hans waved his unconcerned hand. “What can I do? Go to Sophie and explain, don’t act like it’s the end of the world.”
“I know it’s not desperate, it’s just I don’t know what to do about it.”
Hans patted his chest. “You have me, right? I’ll take care of it for you.”
The solution was communication. The next day, when Sophie went to work, Hans asked him to wait at the hospital gate, saying that his girlfriend wanted to see an attitude. As long as his attitude was okay, the matter would be okay.
The next morning he drove to the hospital, bought Sophie’s favorite coffee and dessert, and waited to explain.
He sat in his car waiting. The parking lot was just in front of the office building, and if Sophie came to the door he would surely see her.
When it was time to go to work, Sophie, wearing a flowing dress, came with a small bag.
Just as Li Du was about to get out of the car, a tall and handsome blonde man appeared in his view, quickly walked to Sophie, and held out a bunch of colorful roses to her.
Seeing this scene, Li Du was shocked. “Damn, I just fought with Sophienot even foughtjust had a little conflict, and someone is already here for an opportunity?
And the people coming to dig his corner were not ordinarythe man’s car was a Bentley!
Li Du remembered that the doctor’s name was Johnny, and had pursued Sophie before, but Sophie had already been with him at that time, and firmly rejected the doctor.
“Good morning, Dr. Graz. What’s this?”
The blonde man smiled brightly and said, “Good morning, Sophie. On my way to work, I saw a flower shop with colorful roses. When I saw these roses, I thought of you and wanted to buy you a bunch.”
Some doctors and nurses and patients’ families gathered around him. Some clapped and some smiled. When Li Du saw it, he couldn’t help cursing, “Damn!”
He bought Sophie breakfast but did not buy flowers. Breakfast versus flowerson the surface he was on the losing side.
There were Daffodils that he had prepared for Sophie yesterday, which Sophie liked. But the flowers had been smothered overnight in the car, and now they were wilted and useless.
In particular, the male doctor’s colorful roses were very bright, but there was no harm without comparison between the two flowers. With the comparison between them, Li Du’s were more injured.
Depressed, Li Du tried to throw away the bunch of flowers, but when he picked them up, he found several unbloomed flowers.
“Sh*t businessman!” he cursed, and it must have been yesterday that the owner of the florist’s shop put a few worthless little flowers in the valuable ones to make the bouquet look bigger.
He had a sudden idea as he watched the flowers begin to blossom.
The little bug could let time pass on objects, could make them agebut what about the flowers?
With this idea in mind, he took out a flower bud to do an experiment, called out the little bug, and let it suck the time energy from a flower.
