I ADORE HIM
(The Truth behind the Car Accident (19)
“Okay… My plane just landed not long ago. I’m on the way back… Yes, Xiao’ai met me, and we met Bro Bancheng by coincidence… Okay… Bye.”
After Xu Wennuan ended the call, the car was silent for a moment before Qin Zhi’ai turned around and asked, “Did Wu Hao call you?”
“Yes.” Xu Wennuan nodded.
Qin Zhi’ai hesitated for a second before asking, “You guys… Are you guys still in contact?”
Xu Wennuan looked outside of the car window for a while and nodded again. “Yes.”
Lu Bancheng’s foot slipped, and he almost hit the car in front of him. Luckily, he immediately responded and hit the brakes.
“So, what are you going to do about him?” Qin Zhi’ai asked.
Xu Wennuan did not directly answer Qin Zhi’ai’s question. She had been thinking about it for a long time, but she hadn’t arrived at the answer. “Xiao’ai, he told me he has cut all contact with Jiang Qianqian.” The way she answered the question made it obvious that she wanted to forgive Wu Hao.
Qin Zhi’ai went quiet for a while and asked in a low pitch, “You still can’t give him up… Am I right?”
Xu Wennuan pressed her lips together and looked down, quietly thinking before she smiled and said, “Xiao’ai, I have been with him for 10 years.”
How many decades will a person live?
My best times have been with Wu Hao. I wouldn’t feel like living if I gave up on Wu Hao.
Throughout her travels, whenever she had seen a captivating landscape, she had wondered if Wu Hao would like it. Whenever she had eaten a delicious meal or a fruit, she had thought of Wu Hao eating it with her. And whenever she had seen beautiful clothing while shopping, she had imagined what Wu Hao would think of it on her.
Qin Zhi’ai did not know how to respond to Xu Wennuan’s simple answer. As they remained silent, Qin Zhi’ai suddenly remembered that she had seen Jiang Qianqian at the hospital when she had gone for her pregnancy checkup. Her heart started to flutter the more she started believing her guess was right. She hesitated for a while, thinking if she should tell Xu Wennuan. Before she could say anything, the car suddenly stopped and parked by the curb.
Qin Zhi’ai and Xu Wennuan were shocked and looked up at Lu Bancheng, who showed no expression on his face. He didn’t say anything to either of them; he only got out of the car, walked to the trunk, and took out Xu Wennuan’s luggage and put it on the curb. He then opened the door facing the pedestrian street and signaled them to exit.
As they got out of the car, they looked at each other in confusion and then turned to look at Lu Bancheng. Xu Wennuan asked, “What happened? Do you have something urgent to do?”
Lu Bancheng turned around and gave Xu Wennuan a dirty look before he got back into the car and sped away.
As Xu Wennuan was coming home from the airport, Wu Hao sat in his office at work with his phone in his hand. He hesitated for a second before he ended the call and then texted to Xu Wennuan, “Nuannuan, do you want to have dinner together tonight?”
As soon as he sent the text, he received one. “Wu Hao, I have something to talk to you about.” Jiang Qianqian had not contacted him for more than three months. Before he could respond, she sent another text. “I’m pregnant.”
