Shen Chuchu was shocked to hear these words. She did not expect there would be someone else in the room and sniffled her nose then quickly turned her body. 

A beautiful man sat on the sofa with a frown. His cheeks were slightly red and looked slightly impatient. Occasionally, he used his hand to knead his brows. Even with an annoyed expression, he was very good-looking.

“Who…who are you, why are you here?” Shen Chuchu was somewhat scared and asked in a rough voice.

Han Xingyan’s hands paused for a while when he heard these words. He looked at her with an unbelievable expression, she actually forgot him? Even though she was so enthusiastic last night…

However, his heart softened as he looked at Shen Chuchu’s beautiful flushed and tear-stained face. The voice he used was lower than before with a thread of tenderness, “I am Han Xingyan, this is my room.”  

Shen Chuchu’s eyes slightly widened and stared at the man in front of her.

“This is your room? Then where is Executive Chen?” Shen Chuchu felt sick when she spoke this name and her eyebrows unconsciously frowned.

“That’s not right, what exactly happened last night?”

As for last night, Shen Chuchu did not have a single trace of memory of it. She seemed to vaguely remember being pulled out of the room by Executive Chen then they met a person in the corridor but that person did not save her. After that, she could not remember anything. She seemed to have entered the elevator, got carried by someone then got soaked by the heavy rain outside…

Wait a minute. Shen Chuchu turned to face him, this person seemed like the man she had seen in the corridor.

“What else do you remember?” Han Xingyan asked with a sigh.

Could she say the last image in her head was seeing him leave? But it was obvious that he ended up saving her. At this time, Shen Chuchu’s head was very confused and slightly dizzy.

“You saved me, right?” Shen Chuchu asked inquisitively.

Han Xingyan felt his head was a bit murky today and thought hard for a while before replying, “Yes. When you were about to leave in the elevator with Executive Chen, I saved you.”

“So you did save me and not just left me.” Shen Chuchu finally said and felt the reason she did that was due to her mind not listening to her. She should have been thankful and not be looking into the issue instead.

“Yes, I did save you and did not just leave you.” Han Xingyan replied back to Shen Chuchu like a robot.

“Then why did you save me and not just left me? What happened after?”

Han Xingyan tightly pinched the space between his eyebrows and looked at the flushed face. It was clear that Shen Chuchu’s mind was not very clear. He replied, “Shen Chuchu, is your mind clear right now? Do you understand what I am saying right now?” 

Shen Chuchu was stunned for a while then nodded her head, “Naturally I can. There may be still some residue of the drug left in my head but my awareness is clear.”

Han Xingyan heard these words and initially did not correct Shen Chuchu but explained, “Okay, I will tell you the things I saw last night. I saw you being held by Executive Chen when I came out of the elevator…afterwards I entered the elevator and brought you here…then-” 

He thought about the things that occurred after and pursed his lips. In the end, he subconsciously kept it concealed. 

“After I saw that you had been drugged, I took you to the bathroom and sprayed you with cold water. Once you calmed down, I found a female attendant to change your clothes. That’s all.”

Shen Chuchu felt Han Xingyan was hiding something from her but she no longer cared about it now. She felt that life was still very beautiful as long as that horrid Executive Chen had not ruined her. At this moment, her head felt very dizzy but she still really wanted to thank the person in front of her right now.

A smile appeared on her face and she looked at Han Xingyan, “Thank you.”

When Han Xingyan saw her smile, his mood got better and his head was no longer as dizzy.

“You’re welcome.” Although his mood had turned better, Han Xingyan still had a somewhat dazed expression when he coarsely said, “But it should not be the residue of the drug. It should be a fever. Sorry, I sprayed cold water on you for too long.”

Shen Chuchu did not mind. As long as she had not been ruined by Executive Chen then everything else was insignificant. She looked at the pink heart on Han Xingyan’s head and dizzily said, “I can see who your future wife is. Do you want to know? I can repay you by telling you?”

Han Xingyan walked up and pushed Shen Chuchu down onto the pillow then pulled the quilt upwards, “No need. You lie down and I will call a doctor.”

Shen Chuchu held onto Han Xingyan’s arm and said, “You really don’t want to know? A lot of people would want to know.”

Han Xingyan firmly replied, “No.”

Shen Chuchu replied somewhat disappointedly,” Okay, if you don’t want to. By the way, I think I really do have a fever. I think you also have a fever. It would be best if the doctor brings up two sets of medicine when he comes. Oh, I have to mention that I need an IV* when I have a fever because I get better faster. Taking medicine is not necessarily effective.”  

*TL-note: Intravenous therapy (IV) is a therapy that delivers fluids directly into a vein. Intravenous infusions are commonly referred to as drips.

Han Xingyan paused then replied, “…oh, okay.”

Secretary Wang and the doctor arrived very quickly. Shen Chuchu had a fever of 39.5 ℃ while Han Xingyan’s was 39.7 ℃. As a result, an IV was needed even if they did not want it.

The doctor had already prepared two sets of medicine and muttered as he unpacked, “Why not just burn the thermometer as well.”

Once the IV was attached, Shen Chuchu fell asleep again. Han Xingyan originally wanted Secretary Wang to handle some things but he also fell asleep after a few sentences. Secretary Wang considerately called the front desk immediately to get a never been used quilt sent up.

Just like so, Secretary Wang and the doctor’s assistant exchanged glances at each other. Even though everyone was curious about what exactly happened between them last night but nobody dared to ask.

Very quickly the first solution bag was finished and the assistant promptly replaced it with a new solution bag. Once the third bag was finished, the assistant sighed a breath of relief and took out the needle from both of them.

Around noon, Han Xingyan finally woke up. He whispered a few words to Secretary Wang and as a result, Shen Chuchu also opened her eyes. It was unclear whether she was already awake or got woken up by them.

Her first words were, “I am also hungry. I want to eat hotpot. Bring me a portion and I will give you the money later. Don’t worry, I have money.”

Han Xingyan and Secretary Wang both looked at her at the same time.

Han Xingyan frowned and disapprovingly said, “It’s not appropriate for people who just had a fever to eat hotpot. It’s best to eat foods that are quite light*.”

*TL-note: Not greasy or strongly flavoured.

Shen Chuchu firmly replied, “No, I want to eat hotpot. I really want to eat it.”

Han Xingyan kneaded the space between his eyebrows and wanted to advise against it. However, he remembered Shen Chuchu’s bitter experience and grudgingly sighed. He said to Secretary Wang, “Let’s eat hotpot.”

Secretary Wang replied in surprise, “…you will also eat?”

Han Xingyan nodded his head, “Yes.”

“…oh, okay. I will go and order it.”

The speed of the order was indeed very quick for the wealthy. Within half an hour, the hotpot was already set up in the dining room, right when Shen Chuchu had just finished freshening herself up.

Without further delay, Shen Chuchu called out to Han Xingyan to join her at the table. As expected, the spiciness was able to arouse one’s appetite and a person’s fighting spirit. 

Once she finished, Shen Chuchu paid no mind to her self image and sat on the sofa then burped. In any case, Han Xingyan had already seen her most sorry appearance so she did not worry any further.

The central heating in the room was excellent and it was very quiet. At this moment, Shen Chuchu said, “That day, it was you who almost hit me with the car?” The moment she saw Secretary Wang, she had already guessed it.

“…yes, it was me. I apologise for that day.” Han Xingyan said apologetically.

“No need. I was only asking. I was also at fault and should not have risked for those few seconds. I will return the ten thousand to you later.”

Han Xingyan expressionlessly replied, “…no need to return it.”

Shen Chuchu willingly accepted, “Oh, okay.”

Things should not be attempted more than three times. She had already raised it three times and since the other party did not want it then she would forget it.

Han Xingyan did not expect Shen Chuchu would be so ready to accept that he was not used to it. He saw that Shen Chuchu no longer wanted to speak so remembering the events of last night, he could not help but ask, “How will you handle this?”

Even though he did not specifically mention it but Shen Chuchu knew Han Xingyan referred to what happened last night. When she thought about it, her expression turned slightly cold, “Not one single person will escape. I will exact my revenge on each of them.”

Han Xingyan had already investigated Shen Chuchu and knew she had no background. He slightly frowned when he heard her talk about revenge. Just a moment ago, Secretary Wang had already filled him in regarding the incident and it went without saying that the well-founded Executive Chen or even the manager and celebrity of Meijia Entertainment would be hard to deal with, especially for her.

He has never been a kind-hearted person, but when he thought of her appearance last night and now her current look. He felt they did do some excessive things to her. Besides, this matter only required minimal effort and was not a big deal for him.

“If you have a need, you can ask me for help.”

At this, Shen Chuchu turned her head and looked closely at Han Xingyan. After a while, she said, “I remember in the morning you said you will take responsibility? Did something happen between us last night?”
