Trapped with the CEO Chapter 175 Tell Him to Pick Me Up
“Zoe, I’m telling you. The Li family has strong connections in A Country; they’re quite a powerful force there. If you could manage to marry Ms. Li, it would be terrific. Now that Harry Si has a fiancee and Thomas Herren is impeached by the officials due to Lola Li, it’s the perfect timing for you to get Lola” said Andrew. He had spent a great sum of money only to get such poor information and this fact angered him greatly.
Zoe scornfully glanced at Andrew and said: “You shouldn’t bother yourself with all these things. You should better mind your own health!” Andrew was now in the final stages of his cancer and was scheduled to go into surgery in a couple of days’ time.
Zoe closed the CEO’s office door and walked straight to his motorcycle.
He had already been in A Country for a couple of years, but for transport he preferred the motorcycle over the limo the Lu family offered him.
In Lux Bar.
Not so many guests were in the bar as it was still early, but the flow of soothing pop music songs which filled the air made Zoe feel quite relaxed and at ease.
He found a quiet, discreet booth in a corner, sat down and ordered himself a shot of liquor. Then he started texting his whereabouts to Lola.
Another half an hour passed and Lola finally showed up. Now the bar was crowded and was almost full.
She found the booth Zoe was in, sat down and casually put her bag behind her back.
“Hey Zoe, are you on a diet recently? How is it that you lost so much weight?” asked Lola. Lola leaned over and carefully examined Zoe under the bar’s colorful lights.
Zoe touched his chin, which looked skinnier than before, and shrugged his shoulders: “Maybe it’s because of all the busy work I’m doing that stresses me out and that I’m not used to it quite yet!” He wouldn’t mention the real reason to others.
Lola, on the other hand, was still as charming and delightful as he saw her last time, a long time ago.
“You should eat more. You really lost a lot of weight! You look way too skinny now!”
Zoe brushed her off by nodding his head and calling the waiter for more liquor. He wanted Lola to order something to drink so that they could avoid this topic.
Lola ordered herself a glass of Night Elf. The cocktail was low in alcohol and tasted sweet and not very spicy.
She leaned over to him and whispered in his ear in a mischievous manner: “If I’m drunk later, you can call Harry and tell him to pick me up!” It was clear that she had it all planned out from the very beginning, even arriving at the bar by cab.
In the dim light of the bar, there was something strange in Zoe’s eyes. However, Lola didn’t seem to notice.
“Good!” began Zoe, “How are things with you two now?” He acted as casually as possible as he asked her.
Lola gave him a weary smile and her sad glance made Zoe feel sorry for her.
“What’s going on between you two anyway? Look at yourself, I feel so sorry for you!” He curled up his lips in defiance.
Lola lightly smiled back at him and said: “A lot of things happened, but I believe that eventually there will be a happy ending between the two of us!” She would definitely have to work harder for their love!
Zoe also smiled. In fact, as long as Lola was happy, he would always feel rest assured that all was well.
Lola felt at ease now and was acting herself with Zoe, and the two chatted happily for over two hours. She did not avoid talking about Nicole with him. All night long she constantly mentioned of Nicole and Harry.
She was so fixed on talking about her own issues that she didn’t pay any close attention to Zoe’s appearance.
When Lola was on her third glass of Night Elf, her face was already flushing red.
Zoe was listening to her with a gentle smile on his lips. He couldn’t help himself but think that Lola was such a beauty when she was talking with such excitement.
But when she was sad and her eyes were full of sorrow he turned gloomy as well, as if he was sharing her state.
He enjoyed looking at her and listening to her with the utmost interest. For him, this was blissful.
“Zoe, I think I’m drunk! Make the phone call, now!” Lola now leaned against the bar and took out her cell phone. She unlocked it and handed it to Zoe.
The screen picture was that of a sweet girl with a beautiful, radiant smile. It must be her daughter, Nicole! How cute she was! She looked very much like her!
He flipped through the contacts and saw a number registered for Si. He dialed it.
The phone was soon connected and Zoe heard a deep male voice, but not as cold as it usually was. This really must be love, Zoe thought. Harry was well-known for his ruthlessness, but now it seemed that he treated his special girl with great gentleness and care.
“Lola’s drunk. We’re at the Lux Bar. You should come and pick her up!” Zoe spoke with calm on the phone and his voice sounded just like four years ago.
“Zoe Lu?” Harry’s voice was not quite sure of who was speaking on the other line.
How come Zoe was with Lola? For a moment, Harry thought he was back at D City.
“It’s me, ” said Zoe. “Lux Bar, booth 9. She’s already asleep.” A bitter smile spread across Zoe’s face as he silently gazed at the now sleeping girl.
She looked both sweet and sexy.
Harry was working on his computer in the office lounge and wasn’t planning on returning to Crescent Spring this night.
As soon as he ended the call, Harry shut down his computer, took his briefcase, and drove towards the Lux Bar in a hurry.
But before he arrived at the bar, Harry took out his phone and quickly booked a room with the Sea View Hotel.
Lola was, indeed, quite drunk. When she saw Harry coming in, she jumped up and down in delight and even dragged him on the dance floor.
How was she drunk? Harry frowned and lifted her up. He found her bag and was just about to leave the bar when he noticed Zoe.
“How about you? Can you manage yourself?” asked Harry. He cast a cold glance at the indifferent Zoe, who instantly shivered when their eyes met.
“Of course, of course. You’d better leave now.” Lola was a bit of a masochist! Harry had such a somber look and feel, and she enjoyed being with him?!
Harry carried the restless girl in his arms all the way to his car.
He laid her down on the back of the car seat and went at a nearby convenience store to buy some water bottles.
Upon his return, he found that Lola was now somehow out of the car.
She sat on the hood of his Maybach, and her long hair was flying in the wind and her beautiful legs were swaying in a back and forth motion, like a restless child. Outside of the bar, some men were staring at her boldly and were just about to make their move. However, they all backed off when Harry returned and gave each of them a fierce glance.
He pulled her off the hood and pressed her against sides of the car to keep her in place. Then he opened a bottle and fed the water to her lips: “Drink!”
Lola behaved and sipped from the bottle. Harry led her to the front seat of the car and helped her to put the seat belt on.
She was so mischievous tonight that Harry took extra care of her. Lola’s face was flushed, and she leaned back on the seat and looked at Harry with her drunken blurred eyes.
Harry knew of her condition and drove the car straight to the hotel.
He took out his cell phone and dialed a number. “She’s with me now” he said briefly.
Someone paused at the other end of the phone and then asked: “Is she alright?”
“She’s fine. But she’s drunk and refuses to go home!” In the corner of his eye, Harry noticed Lola biting on her bottom lip.
Jordan paused and then said: “Fine. You take good care of her. I’ll talk to my parents.”
