Xia Xibei was shocked and stood up abruptly, asking in alarm, “What happened?!”
Did something happen to Tang Luo?
On the other side of the phone, Tang Luo spoke pitifully, “I’m going to be tortured to death! You have to save me!”
Hearing that there was nothing wrong with him, Xia Xibei was relieved, no longer so panicky.
Tang Luo sighed and said in a low voice, “Call me later and say we have arranged to meet in the afternoon, okay?”
Xia Xibei frowned, “That’s it?”
“Yes. I’ll tell you more later. I have to go!”
After hanging up, Xia Xibei looked at the phone suspiciously.
“Did Tang Luo call you?”
As soon as the phone rang, Qiao Yanjue’s movements stopped. He had quietly been listening to Xia Xibei’s call.
When he found out it was Tang Luo calling, his face began to look unhappy.
“Yes,” Xia Xibei nodded.
“What did he want?”
“Nothing. He was just confirming an appointment time with me.” Xia Xibei didn’t change her expression.
Although she didn’t know what was going on with Tang Luo, she knew that she couldn’t expose it this casually.
Qiao Yanjue frowned, doubting the truth of this statement.
If it was just a simple confirmation, did Xia Xibei need to look so surprised?
Moreover, she hasn’t mentioned this meet-up since sitting down. Wasn’t this a new plan?
“You made an appointment?”
“Right,” Xia Xibei nodded. “We’ve already made an appointment.”
Qiao Yanjue’s eyes were deep, even more suspicious of this statement.
The two had met only last night, and when they parted ways, there was no sign of another meeting.
But he couldn’t question her any further.
“What are you planning to do?”
Xia Xibei glanced at him, “Why are you asking so many questions?”
“You are not feeling well at the moment. You should rest,” Qiao Yanjue said sincerely.
“Don’t worry, I know myself,” Xia Xibei waved her hand, wiping her mouth with a napkin. “I’m full.”
Then, she picked up the phone.
“I’m going to make a call.”
Qiao Yanjue watched her slip out with her phone.
Xia Xibei walked to a quiet place with no one around and began to call Tang Luo.
The phone rang twice before the call was picked up. Tang Luo’s voice, a little excited, came from the other end.
“Oh, it’s you, Xibei! I almost forgot that we had an appointment this afternoon! Sorry, I’ll go over now!”
Moments later, a deep voice came from the other end.
“Hello. You’re Xia Xibei?”
Xia Xibei was taken aback for a moment, quickly replying, “Yes, I am.”
“You and Little Luo have an appointment to meet in the afternoon?”
“Yes, we have something to take care of.”
“Well then, I’ll take him there. Where were you going to meet?”
Xia Xibei casually gave an address and got a low-pitched answer, then the call ended.
Looking at the phone, Xia Xibei blinked blankly. It seemed as if something had happened!
On the other end, Tang Luo had a clever expression as he insisted, “Brother Bonan, you don’t need to take me there, I can just go by myself.”
Mo Bonan frowned while looking at Tang Luo’s pale face.
They had been exercising the whole morning. Why was his face not ruddy, but paler instead? Even his lip color had faded a lot.
He really did lack exercise!
However, since Tang Luo and Xia Xibei had already made an appointment, there was no way to continue.
“I will take you there,” Mo Bonan said decisively. “Go change.”
Tang Luo’s mouth moved, but in the end, he didn’t say anything. Instead, he obediently went to change his clothes.
