Chapter 128: Chaotic Truth
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Going to class was a mess as Xia Qingyi completely was not listening to what the teacher was saying. Just thinking about the man standing outside earlier made her want to tear at her own hair, why had things become like this? How did she turn from a student just starting university into someone else’s wife who had been married for a year in a blink of an eye?
Xia Qingyi did not want to believe what was happening, but Han Liang’s words from earlier kept ringing in her ears, and the photo of the woman who looked exactly the same as her also kept floating around in her mind.
Was she really Song Yuenian? Then what about the injuries on her body? How was she going to properly arrange the fragments of her memories?
Xia Qingyi’s brain remained in a daze until her lesson ended. She walked out and saw that Han Liang was indeed standing at the corridor waiting for her.
“You’ve finished class.”
“I want to go home. Leave.”
“Go home? Go back to which home? The man who was with you a few days ago, your so-called brother’s home?” Han Liang smiled bitterly.
“You checked on me?” Xia Qingyi frowned.
“Nian Nian, there’s nothing to be alarmed about. For the past few days, I kept thinking whether there’d really be someone who looked so similar in this world after I met you on the streets. After you showed me your identity card, it was so much easier to find you.”
Han Liang continued, “I know, that man. Right, he’s called Mo Han, seems to be a rather successful lawyer. He probably gave you your identity as well. If he had not given you a false identity and let you be his sister, I wouldn’t have taken so long to find you.”
“I was the one who shamelessly insisted that he took me in, this had nothing to do with him.”
“I know, I wanted to thank him as well. He was the one who took care of you when I wasn’t with you after all.”
Xia Qingyi did not know why she felt a little uncomfortable in her heart when she looked at Han Liang at this moment. She was still unable to remember the things from her past, and now she was unable to escape from the sudden truth.
“No matter what you want to say now, it can wait until tomorrow, I want to go home now.” Xia Qingyi still wanted to stay away from him.
Han Liang was a little unhappy. He seemed to be unable to understand why after not seeing her for half a year, she would be so cold and distant to him after she had lost her memory. It was as though she had changed into a completely different person.
“That’s not your home, your home is at F City. Your parents are sitting at home and waiting for you to come back everyday ever since your accident.”
Xia Qingyi smiled coldly. “Accident? What accident? I don’t think you are all waiting for me to come back everyday. You are probably thinking of letting me die outside earlier so that I don’t ever have to go back.”
Han Liang looked at her disbelievingly. “Nian Nian… how could you say that?”
“Then why didn’t you come and find me? Why didn’t you all come and find me when I was lying in the hospital for a month and nobody was there to identify me?! Why didn’t you come and find me when I was going to die lying in a pool of blood and no one was there to save me?! Why didn’t you come and find me when I was starving on the streets for two days with nothing to eat and no place to stay?!” Xia Qingyi was almost screaming towards the end.
Han Liang froze. He looked at the frustrated Xia Qingyi and lowered his voice as though he was mumbling to himself, “How do you know that we did not search for you? We were all in F City when you were kidnapped. We searched in F City together with the police, but nobody knew that you were moved here by the kidnappers. We arrested the kidnappers after that, I asked them where you were, they said that they stabbed you to death, chopped you up and threw your remains into the river.”
Han Liang’s eyes were bloodshot. “Do you know what I felt at that time? I nearly killed him! After that, I did not manage to find your body here, so I kept believing that you must be alive. As long as I didn’t see your body, I would never give up. You would definitely not die so easily.”
Xia Qingyi listened to him talk about the past with complicated feelings and did not interrupt.
“Luckily… I found you.” Han Liang sniffed, smiled and said, “Nian Nian… come home with me.”
The phone in her bag chose to ring at this inappropriate moment. Xia Qingyi looked at it. It was from Mo Han.
