“Deena, it’s good to see you, and with a handsome man too. Are you on a date? He looks like a keeper,” Mo Chou asked me in Mandarin.
This is the second time someone suggested Jesse and I be intimate with each other. He’s my boss and that’s it. However…
I glance back at Jesse and he still had a mile-long grin staring at me. It was weird watching him smile. In the short span that I’d known him, not once did he smile. Now, he hadn’t stopped smiling since he came to the house. There’s a certain glow when he smiles. It looks a lot like Lamar’s tiny grin.
“Mrs. Lee, he’s my boss. There’s nothing going on between us. We have come to dinner to discuss business. That’s it.” I replied back in Chinese.
“If a man looks the way he does at you, he only has one thing on his mind.”
“It’s the truth!” She stated in her native tongue. She then turned to Jesse and smiled. “Please excuse me. Deena is like a daughter to me and I haven’t seen her in a while. We were just catching up,” Mo Chou stated in English.
“That’s okay. I love your small restaurant. It shows a lot of history.” Jesse added looking around.
“Thank you. You can stop by anytime with or without Deena.”
“Mrs. Lee, stop it. I know what you’re doing.” I snapped in Chinese.
“If you’re not going to claim this hunk of a man then I will.” She quickly retorted in Chinese. “Right this way” she added in English leading us to a table in the back. I fought with every urge not to roll my eyes at her. Jesse looked back at me and grinned as if he knew what we were talking about.
Did he hear what Mrs. Lee said? No that’s impossible. He doesn’t speak Chinese.
However, the thought of him knowing our past conversation filled me with embarrassment.
Why does he have to be so damn good looking too? I wonder if Mrs. Lee would still push me towards him if he was ugly, four-foot-tall and had a peg leg? Who am I kidding? Of course, she would.
