News for Happiness
2 weeks later, Lei went to Ling Corporation. He went into the lift and pressed button 60. When the lift door opens, he walked straight to Xiao You’s office.
“Hi, Debbie,” Lei said. “Is Xiao You here?”
“Good morning, GM Hua Ze. Yes, she is in,” Debbie said.
“Thanks,” Lei said as he knocked the door.
“Come in!” Xiao You said.
Lei opened the door. “Xiao You,” he called.
Xiao You looked up. “Lei!” she stood up welcoming him. “What brings you here?”
“I only wanted to see how happy you are with your life,” Lei said as he sat down in front of Xiao You’s desk.
Xiao You smiled. “I’m happy with what I have,”
“Can I come and bring you news for your happiness?”
“Sure, bring it on,” she stopped what she is doing and looked at him.
“I like you,” said Lei.
Xiao You stunned. “You like me?”
Lei smiled and nodded. “Yes,”
Xiao You smiled. “I kind of like you as well,”
“Really?” Lei said as he leaned over to the desk and held Xiao You’s hand. “Would you like to be my girlfriend?”
Xiao You stared at him. “You…”
“I have been asking if you like Xi Men and you have always said no. That is why I am going after you,” Lei said.
Xiao You looked down. “Then Xi Men… did he like me, at least?” she mumbled.
“He liked you in the sense of friends. He kept denying whether he is in love with you. That is another reason I am going after you,” Lei said.
Xiao You looked at him, she didn’t realized that she mumbled loud enough for him to heard it.
“And Mei Zhuo is comfortable with this,” Lei smiled.
“Mei Zhuo?” asked Xiao You.
Lei nodded. “Its all about you now, whether you wanted to give me a chance,” he held her hand tight.
“I’m…” Xiao You went speechless.
“Are you happy when I am around you?” Lei asked.
Xiao You nodded.
“With all the late night telephone calls, are you happy with it?”
Xiao You nodded.
“Then it is far more than enough,” Lei smiled. “Be my girlfriend. I will always make you happy,” he assured her.
“Just the way how you treated San Chai. Now I felt I am in the position of San Chai in the past. She felt warmth when you are around her. So do I…” she thought to herself. “But I know I only like you, and I love Xi Men. He is the guy I wanted to be with, but I know we couldn’t be together…”
“Xiao You?” Lei called.
“Huh?” Xiao You looked at him.
Lei smiled looking at her. “You looked cute when you are thinking,” he slowly put the strands of hair in front of her face away.
“You have a nice smile,” Xiao You said. “Xi Men’s smile is nicer…” she thought.
“Be my girlfriend?” Lei asked again.
“I want to give myself a chance to love a person again. I cannot hold back because of Xi Men,” and with that Xiao You smiled and nodded.
