Si Zheng Ting stands there, looking at Zhuang Nai Nai.
He has no idea how long she cries. After a while, as though tired from weeping, she stands up and walks towards a bench at the side of the field. She sits there, staring motionlessly into thin air.
The sun slowly starts to rise. The sound of people going about their lives can slowly be heard. Even roadside stalls selling breakfast has opened. The smell of newly baked bun wafts in the air.
Zhuang Nai Nai continues sitting there like a statue.
Cold wind blows over and she hugs herself, trembling from the cold.
A change can finally be seen on Si Zheng Ting’s eyes. He fishes his vibrating phone out of his pocket and looks at the screen. There are at least twenty missed calls from Su Yan Bin.
Si Zheng Ting gives him a call.
Su Yan Bin immediately answers the call, “Hello, just what did I do wrong, Boss? You played me. You called me in the middle of the night to drink and then didn’t show up. What do you want me to drink? The morning breeze?”
Si Zheng Ting ignores his discontent, “Where are you?”
Su Yan Bin gets even angrier, “Still at the bar, ah! Would I dare to leave before you show up? Did I do anything to offend you boss? Tell me….”
Si Zheng Ting cuts him off, “I will give you ten minutes to come to Di Hao High.”
Before Su Yan Bin gets to reply him, he ends the phone call.
Si Zheng Ting looks at Zhuang Nai Nai again before heading to the little breakfast stall outside. He buys a steaming cup of soymilk and two buns. Right after the owner puts his orders in a plastic bag, a sport car comes speeding by.
After the car is parked, Su Yan Bin runs out of it towards Si Zheng Ting, breathing heavily. His eyes are ringed with dark circles. “What is going on, Boss?”
Si Zheng Ting hands him the breakfast, “Help me take care of her for a couple of days.”
After saying that, he heads back to his own car.
The distance between them is too big. If they meet again so soon, the wounds will get deeper.
Zhuang Nai Nai stares into thin air, reminiscing old memories with Si Zheng Ting.
5 years ago, he was proud but also cute.
Right now, he is nothing but scary.
Especially last night. Every single word was aimed to hurt.
She sits there for a long time, her head gradually turning clearer.
In the past five years, she has endured all kinds of mockery, to the point where she is emotionally very strong. When things like this happen, she will only linger over them for a couple of hours before slowly getting over them.
Now that she has calmed down, a thought rules her head.
She must not go on like this.
From the moment they got married, it is as though she no longer belongs to herself. Everything she does is controlled by someone else. She feels oppressed.
As for Zhuang Mama, she must not allow her mother to become her weakness. To be the excuse that Gu De Shou uses to take advantage of her.
If so, she must leave the country and get her mother herself.
But, if she does that, she will really leave Si Zheng Ting.
Faint pain beings throbbing in her heart again.
