Han Zhifan wasn't actually sure where he was headed. After getting on the main road, he followed the traffic and drove ahead aimlessly.
He didn't know just how long he had been wandering for. It wasn't until there were more and more cars on the road, he moved increasingly slower and traffic became intense to the point where he couldn't move any further that he finally realized it was rush hour in the evening.
The car was about to run out of gas. Han Zhifan left the main road at the closest exit then turned into a gas station by the road.
After filling up the tank, Han Zhifan didn't head back onto the road. Instead, he looked left and right for a while then stepped on the gas. He drove about two meters ahead and stopped outside an office building.
The lights of the office building were lit.
Through the tall, wide windows, he could see people walking back and forth.
Perhaps many people thought they could beat the heavy traffic during rush hour by working overtime.
Han Zhifan hadn't consciously thought about coming here, so he didn't know what to do now that he was there. He sat in the car, smoking one cigarette after another, because he was torn about wanting to leave and not wanting to leave at the same time.
Night was gradually approaching and the sound of car horns on the road died down. One light after another started to turn off in the office.
When there were only a few countable lights left in the entire office building, a familiar figure emerged from inside.
It was Lin Muqing, Cheng Weiwan's best friend.
Han Zhifan stared at her for a while through the car window as she grabbed her phone. She must've wanted to call a taxi. Just as she approached the front of the car, he unexpectedly pressed the car horn.
Perhaps the horn came too suddenly because Lin Muqing jumped in fright. She almost dropped her phone on the ground.
Because the car window was tightly shut, he couldn't hear what she was saying outside. However, from the shape of her moving lips, he could tell she was calling him crazy or something of the sort.
Han Zhifan didn't mind and pressed the horn again.
Standing at the head of the car, Lin Muqing impatiently turned her head and looked over.
Their eyes met through the windshield.
In two short seconds, Lin Muqing's face immediately turned furious.
Lin Muqing didn't want to stay a second longer as she glared at him menacingly. She didn't even bother calling a taxi anymore and strode off to the sidewalk.
Han Zhifan hurriedly pushed his car door open and got out. Then he quickly rushed over to Lin Muqing.
Lin Muqing vaguely sensed he was catching up to her, so she sped up. Since she was in heels, she couldn't compete with his speed. She was probably tired from walking, because she suddenly came to a stop. Turning her head, she said with a fed up voice, "Mr. Han, you've already used me to force Wanwan to give you Hanhan. Now that you've come to see me, what do you want? Don't tell me you're still unwilling to let Wanwan go? Do you really have to make her pressured to death before you give up?!"
Han Zhifan furrowed his brows slightly as he got a little angry at Lin Muqing's impolite attitude. There was a flash of annoyance in his eyes.
Seeing him like this, Lin Muqing's anger simmered down.
She was a little afraid to drag Wanwan down...
Lin Muqing gulped and spoke in a quieter voice. "Mr. Han. I'm begging you! Could you not use me to do over-the-top things to Wanwan? If you continue to do this, I can't even be friends with Wanwan... I already feel sorry for her. Do you know her apartment is above mine? I haven't dared to see her for several days now..."
