The driver replied "Yes" then changed direction.
Han Zhifan reached for his phone and started typing away.
There was no music playing in the car nor was Han Zhifan speaking to the driver, so the car was unusually quiet. The sound of him tapping on his phone's keyboard sounded particularly crisp.
"Come to my place tonight. I'll be at your building in twenty minutes."
Han Zhifan typed slowly and he took a long time to write his short message.
He stared at the words on the screen for a long time before he entered Lin Na's number and pressed send.
Lin Na was probably playing on her phone at the time because as soon as his phone displayed the "message sent" notification, her reply came through: "Alright."
Han Zhifan didn't reply to Lin Na with more details and he put his phone on the seat beside him.
He stared out the window absentmindedly as the car drove quickly down the road.
Lin Na's place wasn't far from Han Zhifan's office, so he reached her residential area not too long after.
As the car drove in, the driver saw Lin Na from afar, standing at the entrance of her apartment building.
The car came to a steady halt then the driver quickly got out and helped Lin Na get the door.
When Lin Na bent over and got into the car, the strong scent of perfume wafted into Han Zhifan's nose.
Han Zhifan furrowed his brows and couldn't help raising his hand to roll down the window a little.
"Fan, why did you suddenly ask me to go to your place today?" asked Lin Na with a bright smile as she turned her head.
Han Zhifan stayed quiet for a short while and said, "You called me last night, so didn't you want to see me?"
Lin Na's smile grew even brighter as she drew closer towards Han Zhifan. "You haven't come to see me for a month now, so of course I wanna see you."
Han Zhifan put on a smile, held his breath and didn't say a word until he turned towards the rolled-down window. Then he finally started to breathe again.
Traffic was unusually smooth at night. Even though Lin Na's place and Han Zhifan's home were on opposite sides of the office, it didn't take long for them to drive into Yongyi Gardens.
Just as they were about to reach the apartment building, the fast car suddenly came to an emergency stop.
The driver stared at Cheng Weiwan for a while, who was standing in front of them in the distance. Then he turned his head back in hesitation. "Mr. Han?"
Han Zhifan spotted Cheng Weiwan before the driver did. He knew what the driver was asking, so he didn't need to hear the rest of the driver's question. Han Zhifan opened the car door and got right out.
He walked around the back of the car to the other side, just to open the door for Lin Na.
"Isn't there still some way to go?" askedLin Na in confusion.
"Let's walk," said Han Zhifan in a flat voice.
Lin Na didn't protest and obediently got out of the car then naturally reached her hand out and clung to Han Zhifan's arm.
Lin Sheng introduced Lin Na to him. She was very passionate and bubbly. The second time they met, she took the initiative and held his hand. At the time, his instinct was to struggle out of her touch, but this time, Han Zhifan didn't pull his arm away. Instead, he let her cling tightly to his whole body as they walked to his apartment.
Because the car stopped at a distance, Cheng Weiwan didn't notice that Han Zhifan had returned.
Lin Na talked as they both walked down the road. Although Han Zhifan didn't participate in the conversation, Lin Na still secretly giggled every now and then.
