Chapter 496: Consult the lady boss
Translator: eunimon_ Editor: Caron_
Si Ye Han felt like he had a very, very long dream where there was no trace of light at all and no matter how far he walked, he couldn't find the end.
It was as if that endless darkness would swallow him whole...
Only a tinge of warmth in his palm pushed him forward to keep going and not stop...
Unsure of how much time had past, he finally escaped from the darkness and saw a weak glow...
The moment he opened his eyes, he saw the morning sun shining in, dancing on the girl's troubled little face.
She asked him whether he still remembered what he promised her last night.
How could I not?
She said I have to keep living...
At this moment, she raised her brows and looked quite surprised - surprised that he actually remembered.
Her pair of sharp eyes was like the light of the whole world.
A hint of craftiness flashed in Ye Wanwan's eyes as she moved closer and said softly, "Then... do you remember all the other things you said?"
Si Ye Han couldn't help himself and reached out to touch her eyelashes that were fluttering like a butterfly. "What did I say?"
The girl revealed a sly expression. "You said... you'll give me whatever I want! You were muddled by your fever last night and not only did you say that you'll give me whatever I want, you even said that... you love me so much that you can't free yourself and from now on, you'll listen to everything I say and obey me..."
Seeing that Si Ye Han was staring at her in silence, Ye Wanwan raised her brows. "What? You don't believe me? You think I'm lying to you?"
Ye Wanwan spoke with such a righteous tone but the truth was that only one phrase was real.
Si Ye Han's eyes looked as if a light breeze was blowing on the surface of a lake and forming small ripples as he said softly, "No, that... does sound like what I would say."
When Ye Wanwan heard that, she was dumbfounded...
Huh? Sounds like what he would say?
Instinctively, she reached out to touch Si Ye Han's forehead once again and thought he really was muddled by the fever.
I tricked him on purpose yet he can't even tell? And even said that these mushy words sound like something he would say?
Not tricking him would be a waste. Ye Wanwan thought to herself so she continued: *cough* "Then you must remember your promise and keep your word."
Then, there was a knock on the door.
Xu Yi stood by the door. "9th master, Miss Wanwan..."
"Housekeeper Xu, is anything the matter?" Ye Wanwan asked.
Xu Yi looked at his master on the bed worriedly. "Miss Wanwan, 9th master's health..."
"The fever has subsided," Ye Wanwan replied.
Xu Yi heaved a sigh of relief but after that, he looked like he was in a difficult position and was holding his words back. After pondering for some time, he decided to say it anyway: "Director Xue and Miss Ruo Xi have been waiting outside for a long time. There's an important document from Shen City that requires 9th master's signature..."
Hearing what Xu Yi said, Ye Wanwan's expression which had just become gentler, turned icy in an instant.
Xu Yi obviously knew about Si Ye Han's current condition but he had an obligation to report this and couldn't possibly hide it, so he had summoned all his courage to come over.
Xu Yi turned to Si Ye Han, waiting for instructions, "9th master, please see if..."
Si Ye Han slowly sat up, leaned against the headboard and his eyes paused on Ye Wanwan's little icy face then he turned to Xu Yi and said casually, "Don't have to consult me."
"This..." Xu Yi was slightly stunned.
If I don't consult him, who should I consult?
Ye Wanwan's face was rigid and she said expressionlessly, "Consult me!"
Xu Yi: "...ah?"
