Chapter 123: Unanswered Call
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“You don’t even know about it! When I brought some documents to our boss’ office that day, I saw his younger sister sleeping on the sofa while our boss was reading documents on the sofa as well. I didn’t notice much then. It was only when I was leaving that I’d saw that his clothes had been placed on his younger sister. Also, let me tell you. I also saw his younger sister tugging onto his sleeve yet our boss didn’t even push her away.”
“Of course it’s real, I saw it for myself.” the two heads almost touched as they quietly chatted.
Mo Han had heard every word of their conversation, though he merely kept quiet outside the door. Eventually, he walked away quietly.
People often said to not listen to others’ words as most of their words are a lie. Their words are just things they had seen from their point of view and they did not even care about what you were thinking.
Only, those people had gotten the saying that the spectators can see the chess game better than the players.
Mo Han did not know if he was currently the player according to others, or if he was the spectator that he thought he was. All he knew was that he need some alone time to calmly and carefully think about his current circumstances. He needed to be rational and calm, and not to be impulsive and narrow-minded.
That was why he needed to stay away from Xia Qingyi for a few days.
Xia Qingyi, on the other hand, had remained silent for these few days.
Mo Han would see Xia Qingyi’s tightly closed bedroom door whenever he returned home. Even though they could interact with each other once they were home, Mo Han felt that they were separated by two entire worlds.
Mo Han had once thought about when Xia Qingyi and he could return to their original lifestyle where they could talk normally to each other. He thought that it would probably take a week at most. His younger sister’s temper came and went easily. They would soon return to how they were before.
However, Mo Han had never expected that the reason for them to return to normal conversations was a missed call.
He had received a missed call from Xia Qingyi at 9 P.M.
Mo Han could still remember it very clearly. The exact time he had received the missed call was 9.38 P.M.
This timing had been branded into the small fragments of his memory in the future, and became a hidden scar within his heart.
Even after many years, Mo Han had always felt that many things had changed because of this missed call.
That call had rung for a long time, though Mo Han did not pick it up as he stared at the flashing name on the phone. He had placed his phone in a corner, waiting for the screen to dim.
Mo Han had thought that the call was Xia Qingyi trying to reconcile with him. She had lost patience after all, with her temper coming and going easily. Mo Han reminded himself to give himself some time alone. He was supposed to be the rational and calm Barrister Mo, not the impulsive and possessive older brother he had become in front of Xia Qingyi.
Mo Han had been notified by his secretary that it was time for a meeting the moment his phone screen had dimmed. He left his seat for the meeting, leaving his phone on the table with a document in hand.
Ten minutes later, there was a new notification on Mo Han’s phone that there was a new message.
Xincheng Avenue 3.
The sender of the message was Xia Qingyi.
Mo Han did not see it however.
The meeting went on for about 20 minutes. After Mo Han had returned to his office, he sat down and was about to call a staff at the courts when he saw Xia Qingyi’s message.
This place was actually not far from Mo Han’s law firm. He had no idea why Xia Qingyi had sent an address, though he had vaguely felt that there was some meaning behind it. That is why he had wanted to call Xia Qingyi to ask about it.
Only, the voice that had sounded on the phone was a cold female voice. “Sorry, the mobile phone that you had dialed has been turned off.”
