But of course, one may know a person for a long time and not understand their true nature. A bad person wouldn’t let it show, right?
Xin Zimo hung her head slightly, and she said in a low and unhurried voice, “My Papa… is a painter. My family is a scholarly family, so it’s not very unusual for us to have such a surname. It’s just that people don’t usually come across it.”
Her father was a painter?
Mu Xiaoxiao turned her head and cast a glance at her. Wasn’t her father the director of this hospital? How could he be a painter?
Xin Zimo’s expression was too real. If Mu Xiaoxiao hadn’t heard her personally say that her father was the director, she would have thought that Xin Zimo was telling the truth.
But why would she lie?
Because of this, Mu Xiaoxiao thought that this girl was a terrifying character.
She lied so naturally to a stranger. Just what was her motive?
Xin Zimo looked at Mu Xiaoxiao and asked, “What about you? With so many bodyguards… are you a rich missy? The kind that is super rich?”
Upon hearing this, Mu Xiaoxiao suspected that she was trying to get information from her.
Perhaps she was trying to find out her real identity?
Mu Xiaoxiao shook her head and said, “Nah, these bodyguards aren’t mine. Someone sent them to me. Sigh, it’s a bit complicated. I don’t know how to explain it. Anyways, they’re not my bodyguards.”
She turned back and shot the bodyguard an annoyed look.
“You don’t know how much I hate them, so how can they be my bodyguards? If they were mine, I would have fired them immediately!”
Xin Zimo said, “That friend of yours must be some big shot, right? Is he your boyfriend?”
Mu Xiaoxiao narrowed her eyes and stared at her, and she said in a joking manner, “Why do you want to know this? Are you thinking of having me introduce him to you if he wasn’t my boyfriend?”
Xin Zimo’s expression was awkward. “No… It’s just… You look so beautiful. You must have a boyfriend, right? So I thought that the bodyguards must have been sent by your boyfriend. He’s afraid that you may be unsafe outside, right?”
She was right.
Although the bodyguards belonged to Chris, protecting her with them had been Yin Shaojie’s idea.
Mu Xiaoxiao didn’t know why she kept asking about her boyfriend. But the more she did it, the more guarded Mu Xiaoxiao became.
Mu Xiaoxiao only smiled without confirming or denying.
Just then, Xin Zimo suddenly halted.
Puzzled, Mu Xiaoxiao looked at her to see what she was up to.
Unexpectedly, she saw Xin Zimo walking forward with a fierce demeanor. She walked up to an old man wearing a hospital gown, grabbed the ice cream in his hand, and threw it into the garbage bin.
“Who bought this for you?” Xin Zimo asked the old man angrily.
The old man was still looking at the ice cream that had been thrown into the garbage bin, looking pitiful as though he were being bullied.
Mu Xiaoxiao felt sorry for the old man.
Was this her true nature?
But why did she get so angry with this old man?
