Not at home?
Han Zhifan raised his wrist and checked the time. It was already half past one. It's so late - why isn't she at home?
Han Zhifan furrowed his brows and replied, "Just wait there." Then he hung up, found Cheng Weiwan's number and gave her a call.
The phone rang for a while but no one picked up.
Just as Han Zhifan lost his patience and was about to lower the phone from his ear and hang up, someone picked up the call. The voice from the other line wasn't Cheng Weiwan's but a man's voice who sounded around thirty years old. "Hello, are you looking for Wanwan?"
Wanwan... why does he sound so close to her?
Han Zhifan didn't notice that his fingers couldn't help but subconsciously tighten around his phone.
Han Zhifan didn't say anything and waited for the gentleman to speak for a while. He said, "Wanwan's in the restroom right now. Is it something important? I can call her for you now. If not, please wait till after she comes out and I'll tell her to call back..."
The man hadn't finished speaking when Han Zhifan lowered the phone from his ears and pressed the button to hang up.
Cheng Han stopped crying and was willing to obediently take his medicine because he thought Cheng Weiwan would be over soon.
He saw that Han Zhifan had hung up the phone, so he raised his head and quietly asked, "When will mummy be here?"
Things would've been fine if Cheng Han hadn't asked, but as soon as he did, Han Zhifan erupted in anger. He ignored Cheng Han and turned to leave the baby's room.
In the room, Cheng Han started crying again.
The nanny quickly tried to cheer him up. "Baby don't cry! Baby, be good. Daddy's going out to pick up mummy..."
Cheng Han's crying ceased when he heard what the nanny said about Han Zhifan.
Han Zhifan stepped into the study and searched all around for a cigarette. After he lit one up, he took two puffs but didn't look calmer in the slightest. He started smoking faster and half the pack of cigarettes quickly disappeared before him. He still felt annoyed, so he picked up his car keys and headed downstairs.
As he walked over to the courtyard, Han Zhifan's phone rang. He quickly picked up his phone and saw Xiao Zhang was calling.
He couldn't figure out what was wrong, but he felt an unspeakable sense of disappointment. He stared at the phone screen for a long time before taking the call.
"Mr. Han, Miss Cheng hasn't returned home yet..."
Xiao Zhang must've waited a long time for Han Zhifan's instructions but didn't get it, so he called.
Han Zhifan knew what Xiao Zhang was going to say, so he flatly replied before he could finish, "You don't have to wait anymore."
He hung up and stood in the courtyard for a while. Then he opened the door and got in the car.
He didn't know where he was going, so he drove around blindly. When he came to his senses, his car was stopped at the gates of Cheng Weiwan's residential area.
What the hell... Why did he come here?
Han Zhifan thought about it then his feet slowly stepped harder on the gas pedal. Through the window, he saw a car stopped on the opposite side of the road. The car door opened and Cheng Weiwan came out.
Following behind her was a man in white casual wear.
The two of them looked extremely close. They stood by the car and chatted for a while. It wasn't clear what the man said, but Cheng Weiwan had a smile on her face.
Probably because it was getting late, Cheng Weiwan quickly waved at the man. Before she left, the man called out to her again then opened the trunk of his car and took out a bag from inside. Although Han Zhifan couldn't see what was inside the bag, he figured it was nutritional supplements.
Cheng Weiwan wasn't timid about taking them, so she immediately took them from him.
After her silhouette disappeared from the gates, the man then drove off and left.
Han Zhifan's phone rang the second after the man's car disappeared.
Han Zhifan continued to stare for a while at the spot where the car dropped Cheng Weiwan off before averting his gaze. He glanced at his phone screen. Despite having not saved the name, he immediately recognized the number. It was Cheng Weiwan calling.
