In light of what Lin Muqing just said, Cheng Weiwan first walked into Cheng Han’s room to check up on him. Then she headed back into her own bedroom.
She was sleepy but after she laid in bed, she tossed and turned, unable to fall asleep no matter what.
She wasn’t sure how long she went without sleeping, but as time went by, she became a little annoyed. She removed her covers and climbed out of bed then walked over to the window. She took a glance outside. Lately, she would look down outside her building every night before she slept and see him standing under a streetlight, smoking.
In actuality, before Lin Muqing discovered he was showing up outside the building, Cheng Weiwan had already noticed him.
But she just didn’t say anything. Or so to speak, she was forcing herself to pretend not to have seen him.
Just like most nights, she glanced down. After she saw him, she would go to sleep like she hadn’t seen a thing.
She was avoiding the issue, just as Lin Muqing said. She was avoiding it and deceiving herself.
She thought that as long as kept avoiding it, she could pretend he hadn’t given Hanhan back or given her a big sum of money for child support and pretend he wasn’t showing up outside her building every night.
However, Lin Muqing knew her too well. Lin Muqing knew she was just pretending to be stupid and although she looked like she was fine, Lin Muqing knew her heart was deeply conflicted. She mercilessly and fatally placed the facts in front of her, forcing her to face the truth.
Did she really have to seriously think about what Lin Muqing said and seriously consider their future?
Cheng Weiwan knew she was swaying. She’d been swaying all along, but this kind of swaying couldn’t take on the fear in the bottom of her heart.
In the days after Lin Muqing and Cheng Weiwan’s talk, Han Zhifan appeared outside Cheng Weiwan’s building every night for several nights. And he would stay longer as the days went on. One night, he even stayed there all night long.
Actually, Cheng Weiwan wasn’t sure what point Han Zhifan was making by protecting her from outside her building every night. However, she had to admit that after Lin Muqing said all that, his actions really did confuse her heart. Since then, she couldn’t help but daydream. For example, a week after the talk, she tried to get Cheng Han to take an afternoon nap and asked the housekeeper to stay in the apartment for a while to look after him while she went to the supermarket alone to buy Cheng Han’s necessities. On the way back, because she saw the word “Han,” she thought back to Han Zhifan, who appeared every night at her apartment building. The thought distracted her, so she accidentally bumped into an electric bike on the road. She fell to the ground and twisted her leg.
The person who bumped into her was a young kid. He didn’t even stop and rode away.
Her ankle wasn’t twisted in terrible shape, but it hurt like crazy, so she couldn’t quite stand up.
A good Samaritan who passed by saw what happened and walked up to her. However, before he reached her side, a figure beat him to it and appeared by her side.
Cheng Weiwan didn’t notice who it was until he crouched down in front of her and asked how badly she was hurt. That was when she realized that the voice sounded familiar, so she shifted her gaze from her ankles up to the face of the person in front of her.
It was Han Zhifan.
His brows were furrowed intensely. There was an obvious look of anxieety on his face, and his gaze wasn’t on her face but on the ankle she was covering.
