Chapter 119: Drunk
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
In the few days that Mo Han had returned to the country, he had yet to fulfill his promise to treat Xia Qingyi to a nice meal. Not only so, he had become busier with work for some unknown reasons. He was so busy that Xia Qingyi had almost thought that Mo Han was avoiding her purposefully.
This made Xia Qingyi very uncomfortable and the plans she had to have a nice meal could only be postponed endlessly.
Nevertheless, Xia Qingyi had still had the chance to eat a small meal as per her wish because Zhang Yang had treated her to a meal to celebrate her successful transfer to the Psychology faculty. He had also specially invited some of his friends to accompany them.
Xia Qingyi did not really want to go at first, as she felt some repulsion when she thought about Zhang Yang’s friends being policemen. It was only afterwards that Zhang Yang had said that his friends were people from the detective agency and were not anybody special.
Xia Qingyi changed her thoughts. She had thought that maybe she could ask the people from the detective agency to help her inquire about what had happened at the swimming pool that time. They might be able to find some traces of the truth.
That was why she followed Zhang Yang to the meal.
However, Xia Qingyi could not remember what she had ate, what she had said and who she had met too clearly after that day. Her memories of that night were a complete blur.
The final second of the memory she had when she was still sober was that Zhang Yang had said something to her at the dining table, though she had forgotten what.
She was constantly in a daze, as if she kept floating up and down in the sea. Her surroundings were particularly noisy, though Xia Qingyi could not hear what they were saying. She then fell head first onto something soft.
And, she lost all consciousness.
By the time she had regained consciousness, she had been woken up by the frantic knocking on the door at 3 A.M.
The reason why Xia Qingyi could remember the time so specifically, was because someone had said it agitatedly next to her when she had been woken up.
Who is knocking on the door at 3 A.M. in the morning?!
That person seemed to have gone to open the door while scolding nonstop. Xia Qingyi was incredibly sleepy. She could not move even though she was conscious.
She did not open her eyes and did not know where she was currently. There were two tiny people fighting in her head. One was saying to get up quickly to see where she was, while the other was saying to go to sleep and that everything could be settled after she had woken up.
Only, Xia Qingyi had been woken up when a cup of cold water was splashed on her before a victory could be decided between the two tiny people.
It was extremely bright when she opened her eyes. She closed her eyes again straight away at the brightness. She continued to close her eyes after she had raised her arms to wipe away the water on her face. She had not yet reacted to what had happened.
“Are you awake?” Xia Qingyi finally opened her eyes with difficulty to faintly see Mo Han standing in front of her with his face dark as coal.
Xia Qingyi was confused as she looked at Mo Han, who seemed to be unbearably close to losing his temper and the unknown man that was lying next to her. She did not know where Zhang Yang had gone, but she was lying on a bed. There was a man whose face she could not see dead asleep and lying by her leg.
“Go away!” Mo Han pulled the man who was sleeping on her leg away.
Xia Qingyi finally realized that she seemed to have gotten herself into trouble.
She wanted to open her mouth to speak, only to be interrupted by Mo Han.
“Go back!” Mo Han did not even give her the chance to speak. He straight away grabbed onto her wrist and pulled her out of the bed. Xia Qingyi almost fell with her unstable steps from Mo Han’s pulling. She wanted to pull her hands back to put on her shoes and walk by herself.
However, Mo Han did not give her the time to put on her shoes. He turned back and stared straight into her eyes. “Xia Qingyi, if you continue to dawdle here for another minute, I’ll make sure you never get to go home!”
Xia Qingyi was frightened by his gaze. She carefully held onto her shoes with one hand while her other hand was pulled forward painfully by Mo Han.
It was only when they were out of the room that Xia Qingyi finally realized that they were at a hotel.
She saw another person leaning against the wall at the entrance of the room, which happened to be Zhang Yang.
He was dead asleep with his head tilted and face flushed red.
