Han Zhifan stared at the newspaper for a moment before his gaze fell upon Cheng Weiwan’s face. “Wanwan, if you really want to leave…”
Han Zhifan stopped for a moment.
He made up his mind already, but when it came time to say it, he still found it difficult to say it aloud.
He pursed his lips and gulped for a while before he forced himself to finish speaking the main point. “…then leave.”
A hint of confusion came across Cheng Weiwan’s eyes as though she couldn’t believe what she was hearing.
Han Zhifan’s fingers upon the newspaper couldn’t help but tense up. He knew she didn’t dare believe him, so he tried to explain what he just said in more detail. “You can leave whenever you want. No one will stop you. As for our previous deal, just forget it. Forget about the number of nights you owe me or whatever. Before you leave, tell the housekeeper to help you pack and call the driver.”
Han Zhifan paused for a moment then continued. “Of course, if you don’t want the housekeeper to do it, you can do it yourself. If you don’t want to use the driver, you can call your own cab, or call a friend to pick you up if you want…”
When Cheng Weiwan heard this, she finally dared to believe what she heard was true. Han Zhifan really was letting her go.
There was happiness but also sadness.
The happiness was because she could finally go back to living her quiet and peaceful life alone as she did before.
The sadness was because she had to part with Hanhan and this time, she didn’t know when they were going to see each other next.
But she didn’t need to be that sad, right? Han Zhifan had more money than she did, so he could provide for Hanhan; he was countless times better for Hanhan than her. It would be better for Hanhan to stay with him because at the very least, he could wear the best clothes, eat the very best food, use the very best things, and he could go to the very best school…
With that thought, Cheng Weiwan nodded gently at Han Zhifan. “Got it.”
Cheng Weiwan was quiet for a moment before she added, “Thank you.”
Han Zhifan didn’t reply.
Cheng Weiwan didn’t talk anymore either.
It was silent in the bedroom for quite some time. Cheng Weiwan was about to find something to say before leaving when all of a sudden, Han Zhifan said, “Wanwan, I’m sorry.”
Last night, she heard him saying this all night long… Cheng Weiwan pursed her lips but still didn’t make a sound.
“I know this means nothing, but I still want to sincerely apologize. I’m sorry Wanwan. I really was a douchebag back then…” said Han Zhifan.
Not all “Sorry”s could be exchanged for “That’s alright.”
Just like now, Cheng Weiwan couldn’t say “That’s alright” no matter how she tried. In the end, all she could do was say, “It’s in the past, so let’s not bring it up again.”
“Alright,” said Han Zhifan.
Cheng Weiwan didn’t know how to reply, so she didn’t say anything.
“Wanwan, I hope you live happily and peacefully in the future,” said Han Zhifan.
“Thank you,” replied Cheng Weiwan.
“If you come across any problems, you can find me at any time. I’ll help you think of a way to resolve them,” offered Han Zhifan.
Han Zhifan knew she wouldn’t go to him, but he said it anyway.
Cheng Weiwan knew she wouldn’t go to him, but she still replied with “Thank you” after she heard him say this.
It seemed like Han Zhifan was finished talking because he didn’t speak for a long time.
Cheng Weiwan pointed at the door. “I’m going to see Hanhan.”
With that said, she raised her foot.
Before Cheng Weiwan pulled the door open, Han Zhifan spoke up again. “Wanwan…”
