Mo Han kissed her forehead and patted her back. “Don’t worry, I’ll stay by your side and I won’t go anywhere. I’ll look after you.”
Mo Han patted her arm. “Someday… take me to visit Xiao Ye.”
Xia Qingyi looked at him. “He must be an important person to you. After visiting him, I feel like I will be able to feel what your past was like.”
“Someday… let’s go together. I’ll take you to visit him on his death anniversary,” Xia Qingyi said.
He knew what Xia Qingyi was worried about, but he did not want her to worry about him.
Actually, when he was listening to Xia Qingyi talk about her past, he was still a little unhappy on the inside. He minded all the events that had happened to her in the past. But all these could not compare to how much he wanted Xia Qingyi to stay by his side, and how he did not want to be separated from her.
Ever since she had promised to be together with him, Mo Han never thought of letting her go.
To him, he would already be satisfied as long as he had her company in his life.
He knew what was the most important, so he could not let the insignificant ones disturb him.
After telling Mo Han everything, Xia Qingyi only felt relief. She had been secretive around Mo Han ever since she had recovered her memories, and she had not even dared to look at him. Now that everything was fine, she no longer had to feel guilty when she smiled at Mo Han.
When she was at school the next day, Xia Qingyi felt as though she had an infinite amount of energy in class. She was extremely attentive, and there would never be a day when she would be as serious as this.
When she saw Mo Han’s message that he would come and pick her up after school, her eyes were filled with happiness, and she felt like cheering loudly in the classroom.
She had never been happier, she thought at that moment.
Similarly, Mo Han felt just as relaxed in the law firm, because the biggest problem between him and Xia Qingyi was finally resolved. There would probably not be any huge problems between the two of them.
Which was why when Liu Zhiyuan said he wanted to go to the police station to deliver a file to Old Zhang, he also took it upon himself to do the simple task. But of course the most important reason was that the police station was especially near to Xia Qingyi’s school, so he could conveniently go to her school after he delivered the document.
He drove his car and quickly reached the police station. When he went to Old Zhang’s office, Old Zhang was not in. Mo Han asked where he went, and a colleague said that Old Zhang had probably gone to the interrogation room. They had recently caught a gang leader, and he was probably there talking to that person.
Mo Han took the file and went to the interrogation room. He saw Old Zhang sitting on the bench in the room through the glass window, looking stern and confronting the man opposite him.
Mo Han waved the file in his hand at Old Zhang, but Old Zhang did not respond, and only then did Mo Han remember that people in the interrogation room could not see the outside through the glass window since it was one-way glass.
It looked like Old Zhang would be occupied for quite some time. Mo Han was going to turn around and put the file in Old Zhang’s office so that Old Zhang could see it after he had finished his work.
But as he was about to leave, he saw the man sitting opposite Old Zhang glance in his direction through the glass mirror, and he stopped in his tracks.
The man’s eyes seemed be on Mo Han’s body, and it was a cold and piercing stare. Even though he knew that the man could not see him through the glass mirror, Mo Han’s heart still turned cold.
He asked Zhang Yang beside him, who was looking into the mirror as well, “Who’s being interrogated inside?”
Only then did Zhang Yang notice that the person standing beside him was Mo Han, and he was a little surprised. “Oh… Barrister Mo, what brings you here today?”
“I’m here to deliver a file to Old Zhang.” Mo Han asked, “Who’s the person that Old Zhang is interrogating in the room?”
Zhang Yang looked at the man sitting inside. “It’s the gang leader who was recently caught. Chen Tian. He looks young, but he has been in the underworld for more than ten years. His methods are merciless, and he’s known as ‘Poisonous Third’ in the underworld.”
Mo Han looked at the unruly profile of him sitting on the stool, deep in thought.
Zhang Yang looked at Chen Tian sitting inside and also smiled. “Actually, he also has another name. The people from the underworld always call him that, what was it, oh yeah, Third Young Master.”
“Third Young Master?” Mo Han froze.
“Yeah, Third Young Master. This name still sounds awkward. But apparently it was because he was one of the youngest and the most handsome in his gang, which is why the people around him call him that.” Zhang Yang went on to mutter to himself as he looked at Chen Tian. “He’s pretty handsome indeed, he still looks good-looking even after having a crew cut. Before seeing him, I always thought that people from the underworld were fierce-looking and had scars all over their faces and bodies, but now my perception has changed.”
Zhang Yang started chatting with Mo Han. “Don’t you think that with him sitting like this over there right now, he doesn’t look much like a convict, but more of a wealthy young master?”
Mo Han looked at Chen Tian sitting inside through the glass mirror. If he was not wrong, he was the Third Young Master that Xia Qingyi had mentioned to him last night.
The world certainly was small, he did not expect to meet him here today.
Mo Han did not leave. He stood there and watched Old Zhang sternly question Chen Tian. Chen Tian did not defend himself much and admitted that he did it.
“How many years will he get judging on the crimes he’d pleaded guilty to as of now?” Mo Han asked.
Zhang Yang said, “At least 15 years. Two people’s lives are on him, he’s involved in smuggling, illegal collection of protection fees and a list of other offenses, and all these add up to around 15 years. But he didn’t sell drugs, and this is what we’re surprised about.”
Zhang Yang seemed to have gotten interested in talking. “He has been in the underworld for more than ten years, and yet he has never meddled in drugs at all. Most of the drug business is done by his eldest brother, and he has never joined in, I’m not sure why.”
“Can I talk to him for a while later?”
Zhang Yang looked at him. “What do you want to talk to him about? Does your case have anything to do with him?”
“No, it’s personal.” Mo Han said, “Just tell me whether it’s possible or not for me to do so.”
“It’s possible, we’d just have to follow the procedure after Old Zhang finishes interrogating him. It’s just that it’s a special period for him now, so you can’t chat with him for too long.”
“You can just give me three minutes.”
Mo Han watched Third Young Master sit there at ease even with handcuffs on through the glass window, and thought of the things Xia Qingyi had said about him last night.
The things she said about him were little, and Mo Han initially did not take much notice of him either. But now that he saw Third Young Master here and saw how his expression was like, Mo Han suddenly felt something was strange.
Mo Han soon came face to face with Third Young Master. Old Zhang had just finished his interrogation, and knowing that Mo Han wanted to talk to Third Young Master, he did not ask too much and simply brought Third Young Master to the meeting room on the other side.
Third Young Master just sat down, and when he saw Mo Han opposite him, he smiled.
A few days ago, Xia Qingyi had been sitting in the same seat talking to him.
Seeing that he had leaned back against his chair and smiled, Mo Han furrowed his eyebrows and asked, “Why did you smile when you see me?”
Third Young Master shook his head. “Nothing, it’s none of your business.”
“Don’t you want to know who I am, and why I want to meet you?” Mo Han asked him.
Third Young Master answered, “I know who you are. I also know the reason why you want to see me.”
At this, Mo Han smiled. “How do you know who I am?”
“Mo Han, Barrister Mo. You’re probably here because of Lina. Oh… no…” Third Young Master shook his head. “She should be called Xia Qingyi now, right.”
Mo Han’s face changed. “You know about the things between me and her?”
“I can’t say that I know much, but it concerns me.”
“How do the things between me and my girlfriend concern you?”
“Oh, it concerns me a lot… didn’t your girlfriend tell you?” He looked at Mo Han’s cold expression and smiled, guessing that she had not told Mo Han about the things between the two of them. Third Young Master lifted the corners of his mouth, his eyes looking playful. “Your girlfriend loved me for six years in the past…”
His words made Mo Han feel as though he had been locked in an ice cavern. He simply stared at the person opposite him.
“I went to find her once before I was caught. But she had not gotten her memories back at that time, and was very estranged when she spoke to me, which made me rather upset… She remembered everything a few days ago, and she came to the prison to visit me once, and we chatted a lot. Yeah… and speaking of it, it’s coincidental how she was sitting right at where you are now.”
Mo Han remembered that they had gone to watch a movie a few days ago, and how she had not said a single word to him when the movie was showing. After they left the cinema, she said that she had something to do. Now that he thought about it, she had probably come to see Third Young Master at that time.
But Mo Han always thought that she was handling Xiao Ye’s things, he never thought that she would be meeting a man who she had loved for six years in her past.
Third Young Master said, “You may not be able to imagine her life in the past. It was I who trained her. She had stayed by my side ever since she left her family at 11 years old. Now that I think about it, it has been around nine years. I only found out about her feelings rather late, around a year ago, but when I found out at that time, she had already loved me for five years.”
“All the words you’re speaking from your mouth are not credible,” Mo Han stared at him through the glass.
Third Young Master smiled again. “From hearing what you said, it seems to be a problem for you.” He said, “Go back and ask her yourself, only she can understand her feelings for these past few years.”
Mo Han said, “What happened between the both of you is also in the past, I will not be suspicious towards her because of this.”
“I do not intend to disrupt the feelings between the two of you, but instead I hope that the two of you can be together. I know that she’s actually a good girl, and that you treat her very well, I know about the two of you. I secretly investigated you a few months ago, you’re a pretty capable person in many areas. She has a good eye, so I’m relieved.”
