Chapter 86: I Want The One and Only
She allowed the phone to ring for a long time and answered only when Bo Jinchuan came towards her.
“Why did you take so long to answer the call?!”
The moment the call went through, Shen Defan’s annoyed voice sounded.
Shen Fanxing asked coldly, “What’s the matter?”
“Wretch. Can’t I call you for no reason?”
The spacious living room was silent and Shen Defan’s voice was full of energy. Shen Fanxing had to move her phone a few centimeters away from her ear. Her eyes darted around before landing on Bo Jinchuan, who was looking at her. She pursed her lips grimly and turned around.
“If there’s nothing else, I’m hanging up.”
“You wretch, you have to come home tomorrow!”
“Why?” snorted Shen Fanxing coldly, although she already knew the answer.
She had slapped Shen Qianrou at New World Shopping Mall and smashed her beloved car. Shen Qianrou would definitely sob and complain about it at home.
The Shen family enjoyed settling scores at an opportune moment and she was used to that happening.
This time, they would naturally seek justice for Shen Qianrou.
She already knew what would happen.
“We can talk when you’re back!” spat Shen Defan impatiently.
Initially, he thought that the call would end there and then. Shen Defan added, “Your grandfather is also nagging about you. Think about how long it has been since you last visited him.”
Shen Fanxing had no intention to go home, but Shen Defan’s last sentence made her heart sink.
Her grandpa was the only person she had any affection left in the family.
When she was younger, Grandpa doted on her a lot. She had whined adorably in his arms, sat on his shoulders, flew kites and gone fishing with him. He had even braided her hair before, even though it was rather messy.
She wasn’t a heartless person.
After all these years, the only person who would truly miss her was probably her grandfather.
In hindsight, it had been half a year since she last visited him.
It was indeed time to visit him.
After hanging up, Shen Fanxing pressed the phone between her brows. Moments later, she took a deep breath.
Turning around, she saw Bo Jinchuan still standing behind her. In a tired voice, she said,
“I have to return to the Shen family tomorrow.”
“I’ll get someone to send you.”
Shen Fanxing nodded lightly. Indeed, she needed someone to send her back to the Shen family’s residence.
“Do you want to go for a walk?” asked Bo Jinchuan as he studied her. He continued, “I think it’s good to get some exercise after dinner.”
“Okay.” With the enchanting view surrounding the manor, having a walk after dinner was a good idea.
There was a drastic change in the temperature in early spring. While the day was warm, the temperature at night had dipped.
Before leaving the manor, Bo Jinchuan picked up his coat and placed it on Shen Fanxing’s shoulders.
She turned her head to look at him, her heart warming slightly by his gesture.
After wrapping herself with his coat, she realized that he smelt good.
There was a unique faint scent, one that belonged only to Bo Jinchuan.
“What is on your mind?” asked Bo Jinchuan.
“I was thinking about your scent.”
answered Shen Fanxing unconsciously. Bo Jinchuan gradually halted his footsteps.
Shen Fanxing averted her gaze, her face turning crimson as she stammered, “What I mean is… what kind of scent is… compatible with you?”
Amusement lit up Bo Jinchuan’s eyes as he asked, “Do you want to concoct a scent for me?”
“Will you use it?”
“Certainly. I want a scent that is the one and only.”
