As the elevator arrives on the fourth floor, he rages. “Everyone, out!”
Scared and horrified, the passengers empty the lift. Two people foolishly stand in the elevator, too shocked to move.
Han Qilu coldly glares at them. Suddenly, he grabs them by the collar and yanks them out. He gets on and sends the elevator
down to the main floor.
As soon as Mo Xinwei sees him descend, the runs to meet him by the doors. “Han Qilu, why don’t you let go about our disagreement and talk about my idea?”
Han Qilu stares fiercely at Mo Xinwei. “Have you seen An Chuxia?”
“Oh, that’s right! I forgot to tell you. An Chuxia… ah, actually, I saw her with a boy wearing our school uniform. She is… .”
“Focus! Where did she go?” Her heart drops like a stone while her stomach hangs in her throat.
He has a hunch something happened. Otherwise, his heart wouldn’t beat so fast.
Saddened, Mo Xinwei says lightly, “I wasn’t paying attention. She should be out
out by the door but I wouldn’t know where she would’ve gone.”
Noticing Mo Xinwei’s nervous reaction, Han Qilu is concerned she has something to do with An Chuxia’s disappearance.
Mo Xinwei is beyond envious of An Chuxia! But she convinces herself she shouldn’t since Chuxia is about to lose her innocence.
Han Qilu quickly heads to the door based on Xinwei’s input. She follows on his heels.
Han Qilu retrieves his phone and calls the manager as he surveys the area. “Go to the security room immediately and check the video monitoring the door. Start looking about 10 minutes ago.”
Mo Xinwei’s heartbeat quickly accelerates. They’ll know from seeing the surveillance video she was the one
the one who pushed An Chuxia!
How could I get out of this? She asks herself.
“Han Qilu, I need to use the toilet. Don’t be anxious. She’s a grown person. She’s not lost.” Although appearing calm, her heart is raging.
Han Qilu pays no attention to her. She goes back into the bookstore and heads to the security room.
“Miss, you’re not allowed here.” The guard by the door stops her. Trying to take advantage of the manager’s absence, she retrieves a business card and hands it to security.
“I’m Han Qilu’s girlfriend. He’s at the entrance right now and he doesn’t know where his friends have gone, so I came to check the video surveillance. If video surveillance. If you don’t believe me, just ask. But he will be angry if you do,” she says with a smile.
The security guard looks at her card. She’s the beauty heir, Mo Xinwei. He checks the monitor and sees Han Qilu pacing back and forth, confirming Mo Xinwei’s story and thusly, allowing her in.
“Miss, which monitor did you want to see?” The security guards are playing cards instead of paying attention to the camera.
“I need to find the monitor exiting the front door.” After hearing her request, the security shows her a screen with color bars.
“How…?” Both the security’s and Mo Xinwei’s are puzzled. Her heart tenses. Did they not see the scene?
