The corners of Han Liang’s mouth twitched a little. “Then… alright. We have all the time after this.”
The car drove on a wide road, and either side of the highway was a never-ending view of fields and trees. Everywhere was green. Xia Qingyi was quietly staring out the window throughout the ride. She continued to look at the scenery outside until it had become monotonous and boring, as though she could see something else there. Mo Han did not speak much either. He was looking at his laptop, his fingers constantly moving, as he had some work to finish up.
“We’re approaching F City, and also reaching home soon,” Han Liang said.
“Okay,” Xia Qingyi answered.
“Nian Nian, are you hungry? Shall we go and grab a bite later?”
“I’m not hungry.”
“Go and eat something, we’ve been sitting in the car for so long, and we don’t know when we’ll get to eat our next meal,” Mo Han said from the passenger seat, looking at his watch.
Xia Qingyi was still leaning against the car window and looking outside. “Then we’ll go and eat something.”
The car stopped at a restaurant in the city with an ancient design. The signboard in front of the restaurant was made purely from wood and had an antique feel to it. The doors of the restaurant were similar to that of screen doors, half hollowed out with patterns of huge and delicate red lotus flowers, and a moving crowd could be vaguely seen through the door. The waitresses standing at the door were also well-dressed in figure-hugging cheongsams.
Han Liang stood at the restaurant entrance and said to Xia Qingyi, “Do you remember now?”
“You were the one who opened this restaurant.”
Hearing this, Xia Qingyi could not help but to re-examine the restaurant and herself, unable to believe that she was actually an owner of a restaurant. “This restaurant was really opened by me?”
“Let’s go in, there are many people inside who miss you,” Han Liang only smiled.
Han Liang pulled Xia Qingyi and walked into the restaurant. Xia Qingyi turned back to look at Mo Han. He was still standing at the original spot and looking at the signboard, lost in thought.
The three of them went into the shop one by one, Xia Qingyi walked behind Han Liang, while Mo Han was always standing at her right at some distance away.
“Sister Nian Nian!” Xia Qingyi was walking when a cashier at a counter called out and ran towards Xia Qingyi in small steps with her eyes bright. She stood beside Xia Qingyi and only looked at her, not daring to do anything else.
“Boss! Is it really you?” That girl kept staring at her.
Xia Qingyi did not speak and kept examining that girl, trying to look out for her unique features as she scanned through her brain in search for her past memories.
It was a pity that nothing had changed and she was unable to remember her.
“Xiao Mei, didn’t I already tell you? You need to be calm when you see her,” Han Liang said.
“Brother Han! Is it really Boss? Is Sister Nian Nian really back?” The girl pulling at Xia Qingyi’s sleeves looked as though she was about to cry.
“She’s really back, don’t worry.”
Xiao Mei hugged Xia Qingyi and started to cry, wiping her snot and tears on Xia Qingyi’s shoulder. “You’re finally back, Sister Nian Nian. We… we thought you were dead… only… Brother Han, he didn’t believe it, he wouldn’t believe it no matter how we persuaded him.”
Xia Qingyi furrowed her eyebrows and kept looking at her surroundings, not knowing what to do.
Mo Han looked at the both of them from the side and said in a mild voice, “Let’s go and eat first.”
