“Shall we act now?” The man wearing sunglasses picked up his cellphone and asked the person on the other end of the line .
“No . Just watch them . ”
“Yes, Boss . ”
In Tasmania, Huo Mian settled down in an inconspicuous motel with the 5,000 dollars that Riley gave to her .
Then, she went out and found a phone booth several streets from the motel to make a call .
As she dialed Qin Chu’s familiar number, Huo Mian inhaled deeply and felt quite nervous .
She’d soon hear Mr . Qin’s voice; he’d be ecstatic when he learns that she had escaped .
After she finished dialing, there was a pause of three seconds before an automated voice said, “Sorry, the subscriber you dialed is powered off…”
Huh? Huo Mian was surprised because Qin Chu rarely turned off his cellphone; usually, he kept it on 24/7 .
Did something happen to him? Did Qin Chu think she was dead after she disappeared?
No . They had two daughters back home…
Uneasily, she dialed the number of their home, South Hill Manor .
After about a dozen seconds, someone answered the call .
“Ning-Ning?” Huo Mian recognized it was Qin Ning’s voice .
“Sister… Sister-in-law?” Qin Ning asked in disbelief .
“It’s me . ” Huo Mian was a bit emotional .
“My goodness… How did you call me? Where are you? Do you know we almost went crazy searching for you…”
Qin Ning tried to suppress her elation .
“I know . Is everyone okay at home?” Huo Mian asked .
“Yeah, everyone is good . They are waiting for your safe return . ”
“Where’s my husband? I called him but his cellphone is powered off . Is he home or in the company?”
“How can my brother go to work at such a time? After you were gone, he went into a coma due to the shock he received and stayed in the Army Hospital for a long time . He woke up after surgery only a couple of days ago . Then he received some information about your whereabouts and left on a night flight . I guess he’s now still in the air, which is why you couldn’t get through to him . ”
“I see . Where is he going?” Huo Mian asked cautiously .
“He said he was going to Australia . ”
“He really said he’s going to Australia?” Huo Mian was excited .
It seemed Qin Chu was very close to her…
If she could leave here and contact Qin Chu, they would meet in Sydney .
“Yes, he said you might be in Australia . ”
“Okay, I got it . When your brother turns on his cellphone, you can call him and tell him I’m also in Australia . ”
“You’re also in Australia?! My goodness! That’s great! Where are you?” Qin Ning asked .

Huo Mian was about to say her location when she heard some tiny noises on the line .
She wondered if the phone in their home was bugged .
Daring not to continue, she just said in a hurry, “He will understand . I’ll go and find him . I’ll call him later . ”
“Okay . Sis-in-Law, you must take care . ”
“I will . ”
“Sis-in-law, is the baby okay?”
“Yeah . The baby is fine . ”
“That’s awesome!” Qin Ning was exhilarated .
“Ning-Ning, how about Pudding and Little Bean?”
“Don’t worry . They are fine,” said Qin Ning .
“Good . That’s good . ”
“Do you want to talk to them?”
“Not now . I’ll talk to them when I’m home . Don’t make the kids worry for me . ” Then Huo Mian hung up immediately .
She checked the time and found she had been on the phone for more than 30 seconds .
Uneasily, she left the telephone booth .
It was almost dark . She had eaten a lot for lunch but now she felt hungry again, probably because of her pregnancy .
Huo Mian decided to buy some food at a convenience store and brought it back to the motel .
When she turned into an alley, she felt someone was following her .
