It went without saying that Hannah could not tell Helen she met Fabian at the Civil Affairs Bureau. She knew Helen would shower her with questions if she found out. By then, it would not be possible to hide anything from her. As for Xavier, Hannah really met him at an interview.
“Interview? So it was love at first sight?” Helen interrogated, “Are you telling me two presidents of a large corporation fell for a journalist at first sight? Are you kidding me?”
“It’s a one-to-one exclusive interview. My company sent me to do an interview with them. But it’s not easy to meet these two men, so I waited outside their companies for days. That’s how I made an impression,” Hannah said.
“Really? Just like that?” Helen asked, still not convinced.
“Yeah. Why would I lie to you?” Seeing her sister had almost bought the story, Hannah nodded her head furiously.
“What’s with that look of yours? Do you think it was easy? I had to carry a big camera with me every day. Even the security guards were starting to be wary of me,” she added.
Hannah pouted her lips and turned away as if she was angry.
“Alright, I believe you. I’m sorry,” Helen quickly coaxed Hannah when she thought that she was losing it.
“Hmph!” Hannah played along and pretended to be angry.
“Are you sure you want to do this to me?” Helen asked cheekily with a naughty glint sparkled in her eyes. She dug her hand into the blanket and tickled Hannah.
Hannah could never withstand even the slightest tickle. Helen knew just what she needed to do to get her sister to talk to her.
“Hey, stop it! Helen!” Hannah could not move around too much after the operation, but it was too ticklish. Her body twitched mildly at Helen’s touch as a smile broke out on her face.
“Are you gonna forgive me?” Helen asked, tickling her sister even more.
“Stop it! Fine! I forgive you! Please stop!” Hannah begged as she panted.
“You have to keep your word,” Helen said after seeing that her sister had loosened up; then, she stopped.
“I promise,” Hannah replied promptly, afraid that her sister would do something nasty again.
Helen heaved a sigh of relief and took her hands out of the blanket.
It’s such a pain in the ass to have a sister like her.
Despite being an unruly younger sister, Helen did make Hannah’s day better. It had been a long time since she had some fun.
Over on the outside, Xavier challenged Fabian. “What is it that you want to say, Mr. Norton? I know you won’t come out to send me off for no reason.”
Ever since the two came out of the room, none of them spoke. It was not until they reached the entrance of the hospital that Xavier finally spoke.
“Not everyone thinks like you, Mr. Jackson. Please do not generalize as not everyone has evil intentions like you,” Fabian insulted without the slightest hint of friendliness in his tone.
“Really? I’m sorry then. I must have gotten ahead of myself. See you.” Xavier threw him a curt reply and went off.
