"Wen Xi! What do you think you're doing?"

"Heavens! Dr. Wen, you... Are you alright?"

When the doctors and nurses from Cardiovascular Surgery Department as well as the security guards arrived at the scene of the fight, everything was already over.

Chen Ze had arrived half a minute earlier than everyone else. He looked in front of him, at Wen Xi, who was still loosely surrounded by the hooligans, and the tall and handsome man standing beside her. Chen Ze's cold and stern brows had already furrowed slightly without him noticing!

Looking at the two of them standing so close to each other, he almost subconsciously opened his mouth to ask Wen Xi about this. He was so ridiculous that he even forgot that he should be concerned about her condition first.

However, it was fortunate that Li Yu, who had arrived after him, had helped him cover up his mistake the moment he opened his mouth. In fact, no one even noticed his question, which was not a very pleasant-sounding one!

As Li Yu's voice was extremely loud, it had almost completely drowned out Chen Ze's voice. Wen Xi had also jumped out of her trance upon hearing Li Yu's question. She retracted her gaze from the man's hand which was holding hers, and took a step back without leaving a trace, so that she could put some distance between her and the person beside her.

She glanced at Li Yu and the crowd, smiled, and said, "Isn't it obvious? I'm fine now, but without the help of this warm-hearted gentleman next to me, with help arriving so slowly, you would've been picking up my battered body."

After understanding the hidden meaning behind Wen Xi's words, Li Yu subconsciously glanced at the person in charge of the hospital's Security Department. When she saw his embarrassed face, she snorted in dissatisfaction. Fortunately, Wen Xi was fine and was too lazy to argue with them at this time.

Li Yu turned around and looked at her. She sighed and replied, "It's good that you're alright. We were almost scared to death when we heard Tiantian's cries for help in the office!"

After giving Li Yu a consoling look, Wen Xi did not pay any attention to Chen Ze, who was standing beside him. His aura was cold and indifferent, but the expression on his face was frighteningly cold. She raised her head to look at the man beside her, and she gave him a faint smile. The words she said were from the bottom of her heart, "Thank you for saving me just now, I'm really very grateful! If it weren't for you, I would probably be lying on the ground, unable to move! Many thanks!"

After taking a good look at Si Yan's face, Wen Xi couldn't help but praise him in her heart. She thought that this man was really handsome. Not only was his face exquisite, but even his aura was extremely noble. In short, he was a handsome man with good looks and charm. He also had a good figure!

Of course, the things she just described only flashed through her mind. She was not so infatuated that she would keep staring at the man.

As if she suddenly remembered something, Wen Xi smiled at Si Yan and continued, "I forgot to introduce myself. My name is Wen Xi, and I'm a resident doctor here. Thank you for your help just now! Uh... If it's alright, I'd like to treat you to a meal to express my gratitude. After all, if it weren't for you just now, things would've become really troublesome."

The trouble that Wen Xi was referring to was her worry that if she were to get injured at this time, it would affect her official 'Declaration of War' with the Chen family.

Getting a divorce with Chen Ze was what Wen Xi wanted to do the most right now. She didn't want any other factors to complicate this matter further. Hence, Si Yan saving her was something she was really grateful for.

However, a while after Wen Xi finished speaking, he didn't seem to have any intention of replying. He just looked at her with a slightly strange expression. He didn't say anything to accept her invitation, but he didn't reject it either.

She took a deep breath when she saw that her 'savior' seemed to be in a daze. She was about to say something to him again when she was interrupted by two voices.

"You're Wen Xi?"

"What are you guys talking about?"

Since Si Yan was standing closer to her, she could hear his voice much clearer than Chen Ze's.
