Married to his secret crush - Chapter 365
She nodded, "For how long?" He was the President of Amaranthine. Staying here must have made it difficult for him to deal with his work.
"It could be weeks or months or years," Han Jian Yu said as he wrapped an arm around her waist.
Mia frowned. When he leaned closer to her, she turned her face to the side such that his lips landed on her cheeks.
It was a good thing that he was leaving but she was not happy to hear it, "Is it because of Mei?"
Han Jian Yu paused, "Initially, I was here because of her so now that she is happy, I want to go back," He did not want Mei to insist on him again and again, to tell the truth, that he was reluctant to tell her...
He felt uncomfortable whenever that matter was brought up..
It was not her he was angry on. He was angry at himself.
Mia stepped back from him as she sat on the steps before patting the place beside her, "Sit."
He settled beside her, "So, what do you plan to do after you go there?"
"Work," He replied.
"You do that here too. Anything else?"
Mia nodded, "Oh. But she will be disappointed," She whispered.
Han Jian Yu knew Yu Mei would be disappointed. He was also angry about how she tried to look into this matter repeatedly despite him asking her to not do that.
But in the end, she was right this time and it was him who was wrong.
But he never wanted to let her know about their identities. He did not know what she will think about it and the uncertainty in this matter scared him even though he pretended not to be afraid of anything.
He closed his eyes, clearing his thoughts, "What about you? Will you be disappointed if I leave?"
Mia thought about it for a few seconds before she nodded, "I will miss you for 7-8 hours but then I will get over it as you are not the only fish in the sea. Although you are a premium one but I will get myself-"
He grabbed the back of her neck and captured her lips, breaking the trail of her words.
Mia kissed him back passionately.
As their lips parted, she placed her palms on his chest while distancing him from her, "What was that? Were you being possessive or were you jealous that I will be with other men?" She asked without beating around the bush.
''I was jealous...'' He smirked, "Since I was leaving, there was no need to hold back. I don't like the thought of other men around you. If possible, I'd keep you to myself. It's not just about sleeping with you. You mean much more than that to me. It's a few days things that we met but you matter.''
Mia was stunned. This was a checkmate to her and Jun Zixuan's long-crafted plans because both of them would have never expected that Han Jian Yu will be this vocal about his feelings.
And she never expected him to really have any kind of affections for her in the first place. ''You...''
Looking at the expression on her face, he asked, ''How about you come with me?"
Mia pushed herself to her feet as she distanced herself from him, ''Your feelings mean nothing to me. The way you said it, you put me in a dilemma. You had me thinking how can someone be so deep in it just after sleeping with a woman for a few times,'' Mia flipped her hair back as she said, ''But well, I never-'' She paused looking at his blank face.
Han Jian Yu stood up as he stepped towards her, ''So, all of it was just sleeping to you?"
''I don't want to make you feel bad but it's true. I warned you to not romanticize me but you ruined everything,'' She shrugged with a strange expression on her face.
Han Jian Yu laughed.
Mia paused, ''What?"
''I was just kidding. What are you so serious about?"
Mia paused before looking at his laughing face, ''You were not serious?"
''Of course not?" He grabbed the back of her head before placing a kiss on her forehead, ''Go to bed early. I have a few meetings so I will leave...'' He stepped back from her.
''Meetings at this time?" Mia was confused.
''They are scheduled according to Amaranthine time zone,'' He said as he turned around to leave.
Mia grabbed his hand, ''Wait.. what were you here for?"
''I was here to tell you that I am leaving... Not to do anything else,'' He paused and turned to look at her, ''...Unless you want me to do something?"
The corner of her lips tugged up as she let go of his hand, ''Leave since you have work to do.''
''Sure,'' He turned around and left.
Mia waited until he entered his place. She glanced at him through the glass wall but he walked upstairs without looking at her. It looks like there was no need to confirm anything anymore because he was leaving and secondly, she believed he really did not like her.
That was a relief. Mia thought as she looked up at the stars for a few seconds before walking upstairs.
Han Jian Yu locked the door of his room as he sat on the bed. He raked his fingers through his hair and leaned back on the headboard of the bed. Closing his eyes, he inhaled a few deep breaths before he opened his laptop.
The next morning when Mia walked downstairs, she put on her shoes before going to the adjacent house, wondering why he was not here, as usual, to call her for breakfast like he always did.
Her footsteps came to a halt when she noticed the lock on the door.
Did he leave already? She turned around and walked inside her house before settling on the couch.
''He could have told me...'' She mumbled before slumping on the couch.
Inside a private jet.
Han Jian Yu leaned back in his seat.
A female staff came to serve him breakfast. Her fingers trembled slightly as she placed the food in front of him before she looked at the man
''You can leave,'' Han Jian Yu waved his hand.
There was relief in her eyes as she straightened up.
''Wait...'' He said all of a sudden and she froze.
