Not only that, Philip even took Xinghe as his step-sister. In other words, Xinghe was the president's sister. He promised to value Sam's group.
With that promise, Xinghe stopped worrying about her newfound friends.
She had spent about a month in Country Y. Nobody knew when she arrived, and similarly, nobody realized she was leaving.
Only her small group of friends came to bid her farewell.
"Sister, if you have any request or difficulty in the future, feel free to come to me. Kelly and I will always remember everything you've done for us; you are part of our family now," Philip told Xinghe seriously.
Xinghe was surprised that Philip was serious about taking her as his sister. After all, they had only known each other for a few days. However, Philip was adamant because he knew this operation wouldn't have been successful without her aid.
Xinghe nodded. "I understand, don't worry, the two of you will have a place in my heart."
"Xinghe, don't forget about us too. We will definitely go find you when we have time. If you need our help, don't hesitate to ask," Ali also told her with a heavy heart.
Sam smiled, trying to lighten the mood. "Even though we've only known each other for a short while, don't forget, you will always be one of us."
Xinghe nodded with a smile. "Of course. Actually, I'm very appreciative of your help, so if you need my help, please come and find me, I will help to the best of my ability."
This was a promise that Xinghe would hold for as long as she may live. She didn't give out promises easily, but those that she did, she would keep them for life.
"Xinghe, I really don't want you to go," Ali pulled her in for a hug. This was probably the first time that the hardened woman showed her vulnerable side. She didn't have many female friends, Xinghe was the only one.
Xinghe was not one for sentimental partings, she consoled Ali rather awkwardly, "I will come visit when I have time."
Mubai reminded them, "We have to go now, don't worry, I'm sure we will meet again one day."
Ali finally let Xinghe go and she waved her goodbye, "Xinghe, have a safe journey, we will go visit when everything's settled here."
"Alright, goodbye everyone," Xinghe also waved them goodbye as she was pulled onto the plane by Mubai.
Ali and the rest stayed until Mubai's plane disappeared into the sky. Xinghe saw they were still waving at her from the window and she couldn't help but smile.
Before she had little to almost no friends but now, she found herself with more and more people that she could call friends
"Actually, I don't like them," Mubai said suddenly beside her.
Xinghe turned to look at him with a befuddled look. Mubai didn't know how he should explain himself. He looked at her and averted his eyes. He complained with some degree of dissatisfaction, "I don't like you hanging out with them because they will take away your attention and time that could have been spent with me."
Initially, only he knew how to appreciate Xinghe. Now he was afraid that, with more and more starting to like her, she would be taken away from him.
Needless to say, Xinghe was clueless as to what he meant. She explained clearly, "But they're my friends, so it's only fair that I spend time with them and pay them attention."
Mubai turned back to look at her and asked in his raspy voice, "But, what about me?"
Xinghe was caught at a loss of words.
