Hui had impulsively decided to head to her place to return the jeep. It was halfway that he thought about her staying back at Xue’s place. Therefore, he was not expecting to run into her. This unanticipated situation that leads to their encounter brought him a millimeter of joy. He wanted to know her more. As she turned around to leave, he called her out, “Wait!” She looked back at him. He was fidgeting not knowing what to say. Just then he saw her bandage turn to a darker shade of red. “Bl.. Bloo.. Blood” “Wha-” before she could question what he was saying she felt something trickle down from her forehead. She lifted her fingers and brushed the side of her forehead. She saw blood on her fingers. Irritated she rubbed it of with her sleeve. ‘I should have been a bit more careful. Where the hell did, I hit my head.’ Before she could complete cleaning, her forehead Hui grabbed her hand and pulled her along his direction. She struggled to
Mei decided to go out for a walk to enjoy the night breeze. She wanted to organize herself after coming across loads of information. She paired a random hoodie with sweatpants and a pair of shoes before heading out.She walked down the street with no direction and destination. The moonlit night created an ambience for healing and relaxing. She took a turn into the alleys and went where her legs took her.After searching up Hui she understood the farther she was away from him the safer she would be. She could also guess for sure that he would look her up based on his background.She was halfway out of the alley when a loud bang caught her attention. She halted and went in the direction of the sound. She walked faster towards it.She halted seeing the scene that unfolded. It was something she was not expecting to be. Hui stood at the center facing two bulky guys. He was in a bit of a situation. She scanned him and the surroundings once again to see what she
Mei didn’t utter a word as she stood there staring a hole at Xue. Not knowing what to do Xue just pulled out an awkward smile before continuing with the phone call.Mei ignored it as she walked to the kitchen to grab a glass of water.“How is Mei?” asked Su Lin from the other end.“What do you think? You should have an idea?”“It was my mistake.”“You are always ready to apologize but also the first one to hurt her. How could you even think of something like that? I really don’t want to spend another minute on you. If you wanted to know about her you called up the wrong person. I’ll leave you here.”She hung up the phone and looked around to see Mei exit the kitchen.“Mei!”Mei turned around to see her walking towards her. “What did he call for? Routine Checkup or what?”“You could probably say that. Anyways what are you up to
The dark sky laid the perfect background for the bright moon that hung up high above. Hui drove to his base to investigate further into today’s incident. As he parked the car in the compound, he saw Lei right outside walking towards him.He got out and gave the keys to Lei and said, “Find whose jeep is this and get me all the details related to it. Also look into this license plate number and find me whose car is it. Hunt them down.” Hui handed a piece of paper with the mentioned license plate number.“Yes Boss, I will work on it.”As they walked into the building Hui stopped midway turned around and told him, “One more thing. Look into a person called Mei. Get me all the details you can get about her. Don’t leave out any details. Do you get me?”“Boss, I don’t think I will be able to dig deeper with just one name.”“Ah… That is right”“We have no clue
Mei pondered about the events that happened as she ate her sandwich. She got up and went into the kitchen to grab a glass of water. She decided not to waste her time and give up her thoughts to go get a good nap. On the way to the room, she bumped into a table nearby. As the books on the table fell on the floor an old photo slipped out from one of the books. She slowly bent down to pick it up. A single tear escaped from her eye as she looked at the picture.The picture had a lively feeling. A man held a child high up in the air and a lady was sitting on the ground looking at you and waving. It seemed like she was calling someone to join her. Mei stood there not moving.Xue had come around hearing the sound. She was met with the sight of Mei looking at the picture longingly.“Mei…”Despite the call she didn’t make a movement.“I still can’t get over it, Xue. It still hurts….. I still see them in my sleep.
The heavy aura covered the room with pin drop silence. No one uttered a single word. As Su Lin rested in the tall wingback chair with creased eyebrows beads of sweat slowly formed in the forehead of the people surrounding him. Everything that happened was not within his calculations. He was not even able to complete a quarter of his plans. It all went awry. He contemplated what to do next to fix this mess. As he got into his line of thoughts, he got interrupted by the loud noise that came from opening the doors. He turned his head to see Bohai barge in through the doors. He clearly seemed irritated and ready to take out all his frustration. He slowly leaned back to take in what was coming. “What the hell did you do? Did you just let her go like that?” “No. I didn’t let her go. She escaped.” “You know the mess you have created right.” “It is not something to stress on. We could just try harder.” “Despite how calmly you are stayi
Mei was already tired with everything that happened. She really wanted to take a nap. She knocked at the door as Hui stood by her side keeping a distance. It didn’t take a while for the door to flung open. “OMG! What happened? Did the sun rise in the west? Why are you coming throug-” Mei immediately held her hand over Xue’s mouth not letting her complete the sentence. Then she whispered near her ear, “Keep it in we got company.” Xue immediately looked around to find someone standing a few meters away from her. Standing a bit taller than the average he had an athletic build. His tanned skin gave of a warm and friendly backdrop. She traced her sight back to Mei with wide eyes, “Where did you pick him up from?” “Not me, it was the other way around.” Saying so she pushed her aside and walked into the apartment. “What do you mean? He picked you up?” she followed behind her resuming the convo. Hui tried to pick up whatever was happen
The atmosphere seemed a bit tense. Mei always hated the idea about relying on someone. So, Hui’s intrusion was kind of irritating for her. “Anyways, you will have to get admitted tonight. You have lost quite an amount of blood and you are weak with all the added wounds. I suggest you lie down for the night and leave tomorrow morning.” said the nurse. Hui asked for the forms to fill for her stay only to come across her rejection over and over. The nurse couldn’t resist glancing at them. “You know fights happens; you don’t have to drag it when you are sick. It will only make it worse.” advised the nurse throwing a meaningful glance at the two. Mei gave up realising that it was better to rest. He completed the papers and headed towards her bed. Only to find her fast asleep with her guard down. “She looks much more approachable with her eyes closed.” He found a comfortable spot and closed his eyes. ***** The early m
Mei held her head as a sudden wave of pain hit her. Hui closed in seeing her action, “Hey you alright?”.He met a face stained with blood and he could see a small trail of red making its way down from her forehead. Before he could act his eyes turned towards the beam of light that grew brighter.He immediately picked her up from the ground, “I am sorry, I can explain my actions later but right now we need to get out of here.” Her head was throbbing with pain leaving her no way to repulse his actions. He headed towards the parked jeep, laid her in the back seat and he sat behind the wheel. He turned on the engine and slowly drove towards the direction of the incoming vehicle. As he drove past the vehicle right around the curve, he ensured to obstruct his face view. He kept an eye through the rear-view mirror until they got farther away.Mei slowly observed his actions. Her suspicion grew seeing his actions and she raised her guard up. He h
