(Editor’s Note: I’m assuming it would’ve taken Kang Wen and An Chuxia at least 20 minutes before being found out she’s been missing. It would take at least an hour for her to convince Kang Wen to release her and to get her back to town. With that being said, maybe Kang Wen’s place is only 5 minutes away and Chuxia showers really fast and Kang Wen defies time and gravity when driving. But since I’m not the author, I’m leaving in the author’s timeline [which seems highly improbable].)
“Sorry, Miss Mo, the surveillance camera by the entrance broke yesterday. It was supposed to
be repaired, but the maintenance workers have already left.”
Mo Xinwei doesn’t listen to the explanation. With the monitor broken, there’s no evidence of what happened… And An Chuxia will never again appear in front of Han Qilu.
… Because Han Qilu will find her disgusting, dirty…
As she dwells in the idea, her lip raises to a curve.
“Miss Mo?” the security guard whispers to her, interrupting her fugue.
“Okay, thank you.” She finally reacts, albeit indifferently. “This is bad. Don’t let your manager know I asked. I’ll head out and tell Han Qilu about bad reception.”
Security bows to her. “Miss Mo, please be safe.”
Mo Xinwei meets the manager near the security room. Putting on a concerned
concerned expression, she says, “Oh, wait. They said the surveillance camera by the door is broken. You don’t have to ask. Go tell Han Qilu.”
The manager looks at the guard inside the room and nods in confirmation. After nodding back, he and Mo Xinwei quickly run to the doors. His only thought is he’s loading his belly with a lot of beer after today’s running around.
“Young master Han!” The manager approaches Qilu. “Security says the camera is broken so there’s no record of a surveillance video. If you don’t know where the lady went, maybe you can reach her on her phone?”
In his panic, he didn’t think of calling her mobile. Two beeping sounds
beeping sounds chirp before hanging up. Then he sees An Chenchuan with her backpack. He pants as he arrives at his side.
“Why do you have An Chuxia’s bag?” Han Qilu frowns coldly at An Chenchuan.
An Chenchuan is caught off-guard. He looks around and asks, “An Chuxia didn’t wait for me here? Her backpack was robbed so I left her here by the entrance. She should be around… .”
“Damn!” Han Qilu curses. Mo Xinwei finally arrives at the door. Upon seeing the sweaty An Chenchuan, she flashes him with cold eyes.
But in the following second, her eyes stare in surprise. “How is she… .”
“Chenchuan, you found my bag!” At first, Chuxia wanted to hurry back. However, hurry back. However, the kiss marks on her neck were obvious. She stopped by a cosmetics shop to cover the hickeys.
Surprise paints Han Qilu’s face as he sees An Chuxia with Kang Wen. “Where did you go?”
An Chuxia can see a pale-faced Mo Xinwei standing behind Han Qilu’s shoulder. “My bag was stolen, so I had the driver go after the thief. We didn’t catch him since we went in the wrong direction.”
She reluctantly lies to him.
“Miss, you know Master Han?” Kang Wen also seems a bit surprised. “This is interesting”
Han Qilu points toward him, slightly nodding his head. Then, he pulls An Chuxia toward him. “Do you know that you had us all worried?”
