He took one step at a time towards the building. He thought she would call him from behind the car, so he never imagined she would stay silent as he walked all the way to the front door of the building and reached the elevator.
Han Zhifan stopped and stared at the elevator for a while before pressing the button to open it.
When the elevator door opened, he strode in. After the doors shut for quite some time, he finally realized he hadn't pressed any floor button yet.
Back in his apartment, he swapped his shoes for slippers. When Han Zhifan stepped into the bathroom, he poured himself a glass of water and drank half the glass. He hesitated for a moment then walked over to the tall windows.
Through the window, he could see her standing under the streetlight with just one glance.
He carried his glass of water and took a few more gulps before walking over to the telescope on his balcony. Then he pointed the telescope down at Cheng Weiwan.
Maybe it was the abortion, but she looked a lot skinnier. She wore a loose fitting dress and a pair of white shoes. It was already deep into the summer, so the evenings weren't chilly. Maybe she was afraid that the abortion would have an after-effect, so she wore a pair of black leggings.
Shortly after watching Cheng Weiwan through the telescope, Han Zhifan straightened up and finished his glass of water. Then he put the empty glass to one side, took off his clothes and stepped into the bathroom.
After taking a nice hot shower, Han Zhifan emerged, wrapped in a bathrobe. He glanced at the window and noticed it was covered with raindrops.
Han Zhidan furrowed his brows then walked over to the side of his bed. Just as he was going to lay down, he walked over to the window again in his slippers.
She was actually still hiding in the area, standing under a broken umbrella with no intention of leaving.
Han Zhifan's brows creased even tighter as he watched her for a while, but he finally headed back to bed as though he hadn't seen a thing. He switched off the lights and shut his eyes, ready to sleep.
However, maybe he smoked too much in the evening or something, but Han Zhifan's mind was in the clouds. He laid there for a long time and couldn't sleep.
The rain outside got heavier as the raindrops hit the window loudly.
She should've left by now, right?
Han Zhifan thought as he turned around.
He stayed in the same position. Not too long after lying there, he pulled off his covers and got out of bed.
Without putting on his slippers, he walked over to the tall windows in his bare feet.
She's still there... It looked like it was cold because she was curled up on the ground, hugging her arms.
The umbrella was old. The naughty kids in the neighborhood liked to poke at it with sticks, so the umbrella had many holes. It was fine to use when the rain was light, but with the heavy rain, the water started to seep through and drench her clothes.
As the rain grew heavier, the umbrella couldn't take it anymore.
As Han Zhifan watched Cheng Weiwan crouched there with no intention of leaving, his chest suddenly started to boil with anger. He turned around and headed for the door. But when he reached the entrance, he suddenly realized something and stopped.
With his back against the window, he stood there for a while before heading back to the bedroom. He picked up his phone and texted Lin Sheng. "Did you say there's a nice girl you wanted to introduce me to? Does she have some time tomorrow? If yes, ask her to meet me."
