Chapter 636: Thank You for Letting Me Down (9)Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
“Xiaxia, dinner time!” Papa An called out.
An Xiaxia walked toward them. The moving company staff had just left, so An Yibei suggested, “The kitchen isn’t ready for use yet. Let’s go out for dinner tonight.”
Everyone agreed and the family of three drove out to find a restaurant.
An Xiaxia glanced in the rearview mirror in passing and saw that the Audi was still there.
Had she seen this car somewhere before?
But she couldn’t remember anyone she knew who had an Audi…
It was probably just from the ads — An Xiaxia tried to convince herself. Just then, after taking four left turns in a row, An Yibei smacked the steering wheel. “Shit! Someone’s following us!”
“Huh?” An Xiaxia was baffled.
Papa An explained, “We’ve been driving in circles and we’re back where we started. No normal person would drive that way.”
“What are we going to do now?” An Xiaxia was anxious. “Should we call the police?”
An Yibei snorted and stopped outside a restaurant. “We’re already here. Take it easy.”
He had a pretty good idea who the stalker was.
The three of them picked a table by the window and ordered their food. An Xiaxia looked out the window with her glass in her hand, as if she was in a trance.
That Audi had parked just across the street from the restaurant.
Who could it be?
That mysterious caller? But there hadn’t been any accidents today and the car didn’t seem to be trying to harm them.
Could it be…
An Xiaxia froze.
Inside the car.
The driver said gingerly, “Young Master, I think we’ve been spotted.”
The man in the backseat didn’t speak for a long time. When the driver was about to repeat his words, there came a barely audible “hm.”
He couldn’t help but look over his shoulder.
The teenager’s forehead was still wrapped in gauze and his face was pale with blood loss. His bloodless thin lips had curled up at the corners.
What was his young master smiling about? It looked so creepy.
The driver shuddered.
After the food was served, An Xiaxia put down her chopsticks after a few bites.
“Brother… I think I know who’s been following us.” An Xiaxia picked her words carefully. “Let me talk to him.”
An Yibei darted her a look and didn’t stop her. “Be quick about it.”
She pushed the restaurant door open. The unexpectedly cold air made her shiver.
This city was colder than Yu City. She blew on her palms, then stuck her hands into her pockets, crossed the street, and stopped at the Audi.
Knock, knock —
She knocked on the window but got no reply, as if no one was in the car.
But An Xiaxia knew. He had to be inside.
She had seen this car in the Sheng family home garage and Sheng Yize had remarked that “this car is as ugly as Qi Yanxi and I’ll be dead before I ever drive it.”
Because he had never driven it, he thought she wouldn’t recognize it.
The car’s windows were one-way glass – the person inside could see outside, but she couldn’t make out what was going on inside.
An Xiaxia took a deep breath and said in a low voice, “Thank you for coming to see me.”
She still got no reply.
“Will this sound too self-important? Teehee… I would wish you all the best, but you’re going to live a better life than me anyway…” An Xiaxia murmured. She then considered the possibility that there really wasn’t anyone in the car.
Sticking out a finger, she began to write carefully on the car window: Sheng Yize, goodbye.
Her delicate handwriting faintly reminded her of Sheng Yize’s.
The calligraphy copybook she used had been written by Sheng Yize.
The warmth of her finger melted the ice on the window, which made those words clearly legible.
However, the car window stayed up the whole time.
