Song Qingchun squeezed her phone tightly as she lied, "I'm sorry, an emergency came up. I forgot to tell you that I have to leave early."
Su Zhinian, on the other end of the phone, was quiet for a long time before asking, "Are you okay?"
"I'm fine," Song Qingchun said with forced levity. She even added a small laugh to cover up her lie before she continued. "There's an emergency at the company"
Su Zhinian seemed to have bought her lie because the worry in his voice seemed to have minimized. "When will it be over? I can come fetch you."
"There's no need, I drove."
"Okay then, be careful on your way home, and message me when you reach home."
"I know." Song Qingchun paused before adding, "Then, I'll see you later?"
Song Qingchun said a hasty "goodbye" before she hung up. Song Qingchun tossed her phone onto the passenger seat and sat in her car, spacing out. She looked out the window and realized with a start that she was at North Sea Garden.
It was 12 am, and the place was eerily quiet.
Song Qingchun thought about it before opening the door and getting out. Then she started to walk into the garden. After the entrance, she turned left, which brought her to the lakeside. Then, she started to wander about aimlessly.
The night breeze of a summer's night carried with it some moisture and cold, causing her hair and dress to flutter incessantly.
She smoothed down her hair roughly and ignored the fact that she was wearing high heels and continued moving forward. She did not keep track of how far she had walked, and she had no clue which part of North Sea Garden she was at because her mind was completely occupied by the thoughts of Su Zhinian.
She only stopped when her tired legs could not carry her further. Then, she turned around in a circle and realized she was standing above an arched bridge.
She leaned on the railing and looked at the ripples of light on the lake surface. Her attention started to drift once more.
When she saw the girls walk into his private room, she had been angry and agitated because she was jealousy.
When she heard him proclaim his loyalty for Tingting, her heart had pained because she was envious.
She could no longer hide the reality from herself Su Zhinian, in her heart, was no longer the hated individual whom she would never want to have anything to do with in her life anymore.
No wonder she thought about him so often after the separation.
No wonder she was hurt by his aloofness after their reunion.
No wonder, when he was down with a fever, she could have sent him to the hospital but decided to stay by his side to look after him personally.
No wonder, when she realized he had been surviving on take-outs, she went to the supermarket to stock up his fridge and even cook a scrumptious dinner for him.
No wonder, when she stepped into his bungalow, there was something preventing her from leaving.
No wonder her heart broke when she said she had to leave.
No wonder she had been texting him so constantly these recent days, be it morning or night.
No wonder she kept coming up with excuses to meet him.
No wonder so many no wonders, forced her to face the truth.
Even though she did not know when her attention shifted from Brother Yinan to him, even though she did not know when he had managed to capture her heart, she had to admit one stark truth.
Song Qingchun seemed to have fallen in love with Su Zhinian.
