Cheng Weiwan knew she should’ve replied after Lin Sheng said so much.
But her emotions were erratic and she simply couldn’t think of what to say all of a sudden.
Lin Sheng wasn’t stupid. He could tell Cheng Weiwan was torn inside and he knew that one couldn’t just say they’d get over it and just get over it. He said what he had to say, but it still came down to how she thought about things. He didn’t continue pestering Cheng Weiwan by saying nice things about Han Zhifan; instead, he left with the words, “I’m heading up first” then he added, “Goodbye,” and stepped into the office building.
With Cheng Weiguo’s situation and Lin Sheng’s words piling up in Cheng Weiwan’s heart, her mind was in complete disarray.( Updated by NovelFull.Com)
She walked along the street and wandered aimlessly for a long time. It wasn’t until she got a call from Lin Muqing that she quickly composed herself and hailed a cab back home.
If she knew what was going to happen next, she would’ve definitely asked the taxi driver to drop her off outside her apartment building.
But she didn’t have the ability to predict the future. She remembered there was no food at home and she wanted to cook for Hanhan, so she told the driver to stop at the local supermarket.
She spent twenty minutes carefully picking some vegetables and fruit, paid, and prepared to take it all home. On the way home, she got a call from Cheng Weiguo.
When she took the USB, she knew Cheng Weiguo would look for her.
But she never imagined that he would realize so soon that the USB was missing.
That wasn’t right. It wasn’t really considered soon since the USB contained evidence that could ruin him – he must pay attention to it all the time. Normally, people wouldn’t notice it, but this time, she just happened to come across it, that was all…
Cheng Weiwan pulled out her phone, stared at the phone screen for a while, then took the call.
Just like when she called him that afternoon, she didn’t manage to get a word in before he said, “Did you take the USB?”
Cheng Weiwan didn’t say a word.
Cheng Weiguo had always carefully hidden the USB in fear of someone finding out his secret, so he even set a password on it. However, in the middle of the night last night, he was suddenly in the mood to take out the USB. Today, he woke up late because he wanted to admire the videos on it as he got drunk from red wine last night. After he got off the phone with Cheng Weiwan, he had a last minute meeting, so he hurriedly headed downstairs to the meeting.
After the meeting was over, he figured Cheng Weiwan was waiting for him in the room. He even thought about possibly drugging her, sending her to Mr. Liang’s bed, and using the footage to blackmail her just as he did with the women he had his eyes set on.
But he never imagined that she wouldn’t be in the room at all. He asked the hotel staff, who checked their security footage. They told him she left a long time ago… That was when he noticed that something was wrong. The first thing he did was look for the USB. He searched every corner of the room but couldn’t find it. That was when he realized that this was serious…
Having finished asking Cheng Weiwan that question, Cheng Weiguo noticed she wasn’t saying anything, so he spoke again. “Where’s the USB? Did you take it?”
This time, Cheng Weiwan didn’t remain silent but bluntly replied to Cheng Weiguo with a single word, “Yes.”
“Where did you take the USB? What did you do to the USB? Give the USB back to me!” Cheng Weiguo’s tone of voice sounded clearly desperate.
“You can’t get it back anymore…”
“What do you mean ‘you can’t get it back anymore’? I’ll say it one more time. Give me back my USB!” Cheng Weiguo’s tone of voice sounded a lot sterner.
