Wen Xinya felt bad and guilty for bailing on Xu Zhenyu for Si Yiyan and felt that she had let him down. She immediately called Xu Zhenyu, who constantly asked for her whereabouts, what she had done and just what was so important that she had to cut short their meeting.
What irked her the most was that Si Yiyan was still smiling smugly, making her feel extremely guilty. At last, she ended the call after Si Yiyan kept bothering her.
Wen Xinya decided to ignore Si Yiyan. She kept a sullen face and stared out of the window at the scenery. She decided to have a cold war with Si Yiyan.
At last… she ended up being compelled into getting intimate with Si Yiyan inside the car at a remote area near the Wen Family home!
At about five in the morning, Wen Xinya was still lazing in bed and sleeping when her mobile phone began to ring all of a sudden. She picked it up in a daze and answered, “Hello, who’s that?”
Xu Zhenyu said in a strong voice, “Babe, I’m at the airport now and I’ll be back at the Northwest Military Camp soon. You won’t be able to see me for a long time.”
Wen Xinya immediately sobered up and spring up from the bed in astonishment. “What? Airport!?! You’re at the airport!?!”
Wen Xinya could not help but be reminded of Xu Zhenyu mentioning about returning to the Northwest Military Camp during dinner last night. In the end, she forgot to ask him for the date that he would be leaving because she was too busy bickering with him.
She then called him but forgot about it again because she was feeling too guilty.
Wen Xinya was extremely frustrated at the thought of it.
Xu Zhenyu giggled and said, “Babe, must you be that shocked? Didn’t I already tell you during dinner yesterday that I’d be leaving?”
Xu Zhenyu was delighted by Wen Xinya’s reaction. Holding his mobile phone in hand, he grinned widely from ear to ear while Xiao Huang and two of his comrades watched as he smiled like a fool. They could not stand it at all.
Wen Xinya took a look at the alarm clock on the headboard of her bed, only to see that it was 5:12AM. “Why didn’t you tell me the time of your flight beforehand?”
Xu Zhenyu chuckled and said, “I also found out about it this morning, so I didn’t call you, lest I disturb you from your sleep. Look… I’m so considerate towards you! You’d better treat me better.”
He was still doubtful of what happened last night when she left the room to answer a sudden call. However, he did not probe further because he knew that things would backfire if he were to drive Wen Xinya into a corner or give her too much pressure. Hence, he allowed her to bluff her way through the call last night.
Wen Xinya burst into laughter and exclaimed over the phone, “Get straight to the point! The point! Second Young Master Xu, you’re a Military Major. Is it really great to digress all the time?”
She was concerned about Xu Zhenyu leaving the city and returning to the Northwest Military Base Camp.
Xu Zheny protested. “Hey! Wen Xinya, everything I say is the main point.”
Wen Xinya placed a hand on her forehead and said helplessly, “What time is your flight? I’ll go send you off at the airport now.”
Wen Xinya lifted the duvet and got ready to get out of bed.
Xu Zhenyu frantically said, “Don’t, my flight is at 5:30 and there’s still 15 minutes and 53 seconds to go. You won’t be able to make it to the airport in 10 minutes even if you fly.”
Wen Xinya took a look at the time and said resignedly, “Seems like I won’t be able to send you off then.”
Xu Zhenyu had stayed in the city for a longer time than usual this time. However, due to her abduction and the mission that he had to carry out, they did not have much time to spend together.
Xu Zhenyu smiled and said, “There’s no need to send me off. Everything has to come to an end, and I hate departures. Besides… it’s not like I’m not coming back anymore. I’ve already applied for a transfer and will be back soon, so Wen Xinya… you must wait for me.”
Xu Zhenyu then held his breath unnaturally and waited for her answer. He was looking forward to it even though it was just some ordinary words.
Wen Xinya did not seem to have noticed anything different about Xu Zhenyu. She asked, “When will you be able to come back again?”
The West region was way too dangerous, and she was hoping that he could stay in the city where his family could watch over him. With them around to pave the way, his future journey would be much smoother.
Xu Zhenyu was a little disappointed to realize that he did not get an answer. However, his disappointment was fleeting. “I’ve already requested my grandfather to help me, and he has agreed to it too. I reckon I should be able to come back in a while. However, I still can’t be sure of the exact date.”
The only good thing that he got out of his return this time, was being able to make it in time for Wen Xinya’s coming-of-age ceremony. He felt extremely angered at the fact that he did not manage to accomplish anything better. Seeing that the woman he loved had already grown up, he desperately wished that he could stay by her side. Hence, he had no choice but to seek his grandfather’s help.
Wen Xinya nodded and exclaimed, “That’s good!”
Xu Zhenyu said softly, “Wen Xinya, don’t lose the ear studs that I gave you.”
He had been keeping the pearl ear studs that she had given him in the breast pocket of his military uniform. He had never allowed it to be away from him.
“Alright!” Wen Xinya instinctively touched the ear studs on her ears, which were given by Xu Zhenyu. After a while, she suddenly remembered that she had already removed them before she went to bed. Fortunately, Xu Zhenyu picked them up when they fell off her ears during her abduction.
Xu Zhenyu fell silent, at a loss for words.
Upon hearing his silence and heavy breathing, she said in a raspy voice, “Xu Zhenyu, the West Region is very dangerous and the conditions are harsh. You must… take care of yourself!”
She suddenly felt a little melancholic as she realized that Xu Zhenyu was slowly changing and leaving her side. He was no longer the person who used to pester her and share thick and thin with her. He was no longer the person who’d get upset because of her!
Actually, that was a good thing!
She hoped that Xu Zhenyu could live well.
In the previous lifetime, she felt extremely burdened by the feelings that he had for her.
