After the lady left, the other patients and hospital staff also went back minding their own businesses. Cassie and Jordan were left standing at the hallway. "I'm really sorry." Cassie finally broke the silence. "And thank you for helping me." She felt embarrassed about the scene earlier.

Looking at the beautiful woman's face with fascination, Jordan said in a slightly dull voice, "It's my pleasure. What a coincidence. I'm just discharged today. And you are not only my friend, but also my sister's best friend. So I think it's just right for me to help you."

"Jordan, I really don't know how I can repay you for what you did today. Thank you," Cassie said very solemnly and bowed her thanks.

Jordan felt amused, motioning with his hand to stop her. Pondering for a while, he said, "Well, if you really want to thank me, why not..."

"Why not?" Cassie repeated, feeling confused. When her eyes met Jordan's, her heart couldn't help beating faster.

Cassie always felt that Jordan's attitude towards her was a little unusual, but she could not figure out why.

"Why not invite me to dinner to show you're thankful?" Jordan finally said it. He was thinking of asking her out for a long time now, but he couldn't find the courage.

Cassie's heart beat faster at his suggestion, but soon she recovered. It was just a meal in order to thank him. It was very normal. 'What am I thinking?' she reminded herself.

So she nodded softly, "Okay, Jordan. When are you free? I'll treat you to dinner."

"Since we have the fate to meet today. How about tonight? I'll wait for you until your shift is done," Jordan quickly replied. 'That was smooth, ' he thought to himself.

Cassie felt a little unsure again. She said hesitantly, "But you have just been discharged from the hospital. Don't you need to go home and rest?"

"I've been all right for a long time. But Cora worried that I haven't completely recovered. So she asked me to stay in the hospital until today." He guaranteed her with a smile.

Hearing this, Cassie could only nod to agree with his invitation.

While getting off work, Cora greeted Cassie when she passed by her seat.

An idea suddenly crossed Cassie's mind at the sight of Cora. She decided to ask Cora, "Hey! There is someone inviting us to dinner. Would you like to go?"

Foo

ther after dinner? I know there's a good film on show recently. You're sure to like it." Jordan's movie invitation took Cassie by surprise.

She didn't know how to respond.

'I just want to treat him to dinner to thank him. Why does he still invite me to see a movie now?' Cassie wondered.

She immediately kicked Cora's foot under the table, asking for help again. She didn't want to see a movie with an unfamiliar man.

"Oh, brother," Cora finally interrupted. "Didn't you just asked for such a few days' leave? There must be a lot of things for you to preside over in your department. We all have to get up early to go to work tomorrow. So we'd better hurry home after eating." Under Cassie's earnest hope, Cora could only open her mouth.

Jordan had cursed his sister too many times but he couldn't show it on his face. So he smiled and became gentler. He said, "Cora, I have nothing to do tomorrow. Besides, it's still early. The movie will finish before 11 o'clock."

Cora dared not speak again after hearing Jordan's statement. She knew that the gentler her brother was, the fiercer he might be in retaliation in the future.

Seeing Cora cut her tongue, Cassie could only say directly, "Jordan, I have an appointment later. So I couldn't see a movie with you. We could go to the cinema next time, okay?"

'Appointment?' The word stung like a giant bee. Jordan's heart sank. 'It's not early now. Why does she still have an appointment at this time? Who is she going to date? Man or woman? Is that her boyfriend called Nick?'
