With that one word from Ah Ye, I immediately felt that something was off. The good mood from finally receiving a call from him instantly vanished. With this tone and this hesitancy, there must be something wrong!
Could it be that he’s wounded again? That’s not right, if he received an injury, Ah Ye would definitely keep it from me rather than giving me a call. Something even more serious must have happened!
“Ah Ye, what happened? Who dared to touch you—”
“No! Nothing big happened, don’t panic…”
“You’re hiding things from me again! If nothing big happened, then why would you call me!”
“What do you mean if nothing big happened, I wouldn’t call you! Don’t I always call you at night?”
Hearing that, I snorted and said, “Recently you only call once in three days.”
Actually, it’s not even once in three days, but I should not say the truth. Otherwise Ah Ye will definitely take it for granted and follow the same duration of time before calling again. Honestly, it would be good if I could hear from him even once in five days now. If this continues… It’s all that butler’s fault! Isn’t he even capable of reminding Ah Ye to give a call?
“O-Once in three days isn’t infrequent…”
I threw the paperweight on the desk violently at Bai Lian Yue seated beside me. He caught it with one hand and even rolled his eyes at me. Then, I inquired calmly, “Ah Ye, tell Gēge what exactly happened?”
Now is not the time to debate over how many times he calls. It’s rare for Ah Ye to seek help from me, so if I continue steering the topic away, he’ll be even more unwilling to call me for help in the future.
“Gē… Luo Ye is still alive.”
I was unable to speak for a long time. Never would I have guessed that it was that kind of thing from the past. How could he still be alive? That year, our father had cast an inescapable net in the area. The only way of escaping that was if he was dead. How could he still be alive?
Moreover, Father has been dead for so many years, so why would he appear now? Why did he contact Ah Ye and not me? Is it possible that he knows the truth… No! Let’s not think about all these for now. Ah Ye is still waiting for me to speak. He definitely must be at a loss as to what to do. Ah Ye trusts others too easily, and would probably believe anyone with just a bit of coaxing.
To be able to survive under Father’s merciless pursuit, Luo Ye is definitely not an ordinary person.
I opened my mouth, finding my voice a little hoarse as I said, “That person is with you, isn’t he? Hand him over to me. I will deal with him.”
Once I finished speaking, I knew that I was in trouble. If I said something like that, Ah Ye would definitely refuse…
“No! If you dare to do that, I’m never going to care about you again!”
The line cut off. To think that Ah Ye actually hung up on my call… It sounds like he’s extremely angry and it seems like he won’t hand that person over. How could I be so careless and make the mistake of telling Ah Ye that I intended to “deal with” him? Things will be troublesome from now on…
