Chapter 1240: Is It Really You?
“Maybe. I can’t remember his name,” said Min Yu in a completely normal tone.
Huo Yao straightened her coat and answered. “It’s not him.”
Min Yu acknowledged softly.
Huo Yao glanced at him. Why did he keep asking funny questions?
The car arrived at the address 40 minutes later. It was a small restaurant with a quiet atmosphere.
Min Yu looked at the small restaurant through the car window. It was 4:00 pm, so there were hardly any patrons in the bar.
Just as Huo Yao undid her seatbelt, her phone chimed with a text message from Fu Ya. She was asking if Huo Yao had arrived.

She lowered her head and replied to the text message before she said to Min Yu, “I am meeting a girl, so it’s inconvenient for you to join us. Don’t bother waiting.”
Min Yu veered his eyes. “Sure.”
Huo Yao nodded and opened the car door to get off. Before long, she entered the bar entrance and went out of sight.
After Huo Yao entered the restaurant, the employee standing at the cashier automatically raised her head and welcomed Huo Yao.
The restaurant was relatively small and light music was playing in the background. Huo Yao glanced around and noticed that no other patrons were in the restaurant. Just as she was about to speak, the curtain on the left opened.
A young woman hurriedly walked out and said casually to the employee, “It’s my friend…”
The young woman paused mid-sentence and was promptly stunned when she looked at Huo Yao standing at the door.
Huo Yao was a beauty and she was clearly in her twenties. Fu Ya had always assumed that her online friend was an old man.
Fu Ya scratched her neck in disbelief. A long while later, she finally asked quizzically. “Is it you?”
Huo Yao looked at Fu Ya. In comparison, Huo Yao was unsurprised by her reaction. “Did you wait for long?”
Fu Ya was still reeling in astonishment. “Is it really you?”
“Why don’t you wait and see if anyone will show up looking for you then?” Huo Yao raised her brow.
Since she had a powerful aura, her words sounded genuine.
Fu Ya cleared her throat. Even though Fu Ya was a few years older than the young woman in front of her, she could not help feeling restrained. She pointed at the curtain and said, “Why don’t we take a seat?”
Huo Yao nodded.
Fu Ya stepped aside courteously and pulled away the curtain as she gestured for Huo Yao to enter the private room. She said to the waitress, “Tell the kitchen to prepare some snacks. We don’t want any alcohol. Just juice will be fine.”
After placing the order, she entered the private room and closed the engraved wooden door behind her.
Fu Ya sat down cross-legged in front of the low table before she finally looked at Huo Yao. She said in astonishment, “I always thought you were a middle-aged man in his forties.”
Owing to the incident at the Apothecaries’ Association, Fu Ya had already found out Huo Yao was very young and still a student, but she still could not help feeling amazed looking at her.
Huo Yao nodded and said mildly, “You are not alone.”
Fu Ya touched her nose as she contemplated. No one would have expected that Huo Yao was an unrivaled physician at such a young age.
Images flooded her mind. After some time, she said deeply, “Thank you for saving me from those people.”
Fu Ya was leaning her hand against the low table and her wrist could be seen. There was a faint scar on her wrist.
Huo Yao glanced at the scar and replied calmly. “I just happened to be there. You don’t have to take it to heart.”
Fu Ya smiled and continued thanking Huo Yao.
The waitress knocked on the door making Fu Ya gather her thoughts. She stood up to open the door and took the food from the waitress before closing the private room door again.
