Xu Baohan opened the door to his house.
The lights in the living room were on.
He was stunned, a figure hurriedly stood up from the sofa in the living room.
“Xu Baohan, what’s wrong with you? I couldn’t get through to your phone. Where did you go so late at night? Do you know what time it is?” An Lan scolded angrily, but her beautiful face couldn’t hide her worry.
She quickly walked up to him and looked him up and down. “Are you alright? I was afraid that you would fall into a pit when you were drunk. I couldn’t find you at the court in the morning, so I decided to call the police.”
Xu Baohan was stunned for a moment before a warm feeling rose in his heart. He smiled and said, “You didn’t say you were coming over last night.”
“If I didn’t come over, you wouldn’t be able to stay out all night and fool around.” An Lan’s brows were tightly furrowed, “I didn’t plan to come over, but I thought you were drunk and decided to come over. I didn’t expect you to not be around when I came over at 12 am. I called Su Run to ask about your birthday colleague tonight, but he said you left at 10pm.”
Xu Baohan felt guilty and blamed himself. He didn’t expect to be caught red-handed the first time he came home late.
If he said that he accompanied Zhuang Tianya to the hospital for an IV drip, she would definitely not let him off. Women were unreasonable when they are jealous.
“Why aren’t you speaking?” An Lan narrowed her eyes. “Did you do something to let me down…”
“I didn’t,” Xu Baohan immediately denied subconsciously.
“Then is it difficult to answer my question?” An Lan tapped on her watch. “It’s almost five in the morning.”
“I. . . I just drank too much Baijiu and my stomach hurt.” Xu Baohan lowered his eyes and covered his stomach. “I went to the hospital to have a look.”
An Lan saw that his expression was indeed not too good, so she did not doubt him. “You were in the hospital for IV drip until so late?”
“Yes.” Xu Baohan could not help nodding. “I fell asleep during IV drip; my phone was out of battery again.”
An Lan heaved a sigh of relief, her eyes filled with heartache. “You’re already so old, who told you to drink so much Baijiu? Why is your phone always out of battery? Can’t you charge it at any time?”
“This phone doesn’t have much battery,” Xu Baohan said as he took out his phone and looked at her.
An Lan felt a little guilty. After all, she had bought this phone herself, if she had known earlier, she would have bought a more expensive model.
“How’s the battery of this phone? I’ll buy you a new one next time,” An Lan said vaguely.
“It’s alright, I’ll buy you a new phone next time. I’ll just use your old phone,” Xu Baohan said with a slight smile. “To me, a phone is just a function to answer calls and watch the news.”
“It’s good to have such awareness.” An Lan nodded in appreciation. “Is your stomach feeling better now?”
“Much better.” Xu Baohan patted her head. “Have you been waiting for me?”
“Nonsense, how can I sleep if you’re not back?” An Lan snorted. “I’m still wondering if you drank too much and got seduced by another woman.”
“Do I look like a man who can be seduced so easily?” Xu Baohan tapped her forehead. “You don’t trust me that much.”
“It’s not that I don’t trust you, I’m mainly afraid that other women will rape you.” An Lan cupped his face. “After all, you’re so handsome and charming, women won’t be able to control themselves.”
“You’re the only one who can’t control yourself.” Xu Baohan smiled. “It’s almost dawn, I’ll go take a shower first, then sleep for a while before going to work.”
“Since you have a stomachache, I think it’s better for you to take medical leave,” An Lan said.
“No, we have an open court session in the morning.” Xu Baohan shook his head at her. “It’s fine, I’m much better now.”
