Han Zhifan clearly saw her body trembling violently for a moment when Cheng Weiguo passed Cheng Weiwan by. Thereafter, she turned her head and looked over at the silhouette of Cheng Weiguo's back.
Han Zhifan couldn't see Cheng Weiwan's eyes, but he could tell from her body that she was upset.
The auditorium doors shut behind the row of people who had just walked in. After Cheng Weiguo disappeared behind the doors, Cheng Weiwan seemed frozen as she stared in the direction Cheng Weiguo just went.
Not too long after, the sound of thunderous applause came from inside the auditorium. Thereafter, the sound of Cheng Weiguo's voice was heard.
That was when Cheng Weiwan withdrew her gaze from the auditorium doors. As she lowered her head, she took a few steps back and leaned against the wall.
She didn't leave, so Han Zhifan didn't either.
After about an hour, it was time for a break, so the auditorium started to become noisy. Large groups of students walked out and entered the library restroom.
After all the students returned, Cheng Weiguo and the school leader came out of the auditorium.
The two of them talked as they stepped into the library.
This time, when they passed Cheng Weiwan, Cheng Weiguo didn't even glance at her.
Cheng Weiwan waited for Cheng Weiguo and the school leader to disappear into the library. After standing at the doors of the auditorium for a while, she suddenly straightened up and headed into the library too.
Han Zhifan knew Cheng Weiwan was going to look for Cheng Weiguo. He hesitated for a while. In the end, he still couldn't help but chase after her.
Cheng Weiguo was the first to step out of the restroom. He had a handkerchief in his hands, and he was wiping drops of water from his fingers. After he saw Cheng Weiwan, he stopped for a momentt and his warm eyes abruptly turned cold. Even his voice sounded impatient and annoyed when he spoke. "Why did you come?"
Cheng Weiwan pursed her lips for a while. She stared at Cheng Weiguo and quietly cried, "Da-"
Before she could finish saying the word "Dad," Cheng Weiguo hastily interrupted her. "I told you so many times before. Don't call me dad in public!"
All sounds stopped from Cheng Weiwan's lips as an obvious hint of pain crossed her eyes.
Cheng Weiguo looked around. After confirming that no one else was around, he looked over at Cheng Weiwan like he hadn't noticed her sadness. He spoke up again. "Getting pregnant out of wedlock at such a young age - if people found out, I'd be a laughing stock! When the time comes, it'll affect my image. Do you know just how much hard work I put into developing my image?!"
"Three years ago, I told you that I had a boyfriend and wanted you to meet him. You agreed, but on the day, I told you that my boyfriend had urgent business, so he couldn't make it. Back then, we met for no more than five minutes. You took a call and said you had business to attend to, so you tossed me aside and left. It's been three years since then and I haven't seen you once. You don't call or text back. I just wanted to see you and find out if you're doing well..."
The cubicle door in the men's restroom was open.
The person who entered the restroom with Cheng Weiguo stepped out.
Cheng Weiguo was afraid other people would see him and Cheng Weiwan talking. On second thought, he interrupted Cheng Weiwan and said, "I'm very good. If you didn't give me any trouble, I would be even better!"
The sound of running water came from the restroom.
