“You really can’t get it back anymore…”
Cheng Weiguo gritted his teeth and roared over the phone, one letter at a time, “GIVE – ME – BACK – MY – USB!”
“You’ve done so many wrong things that you should take responsibility for your actions…”
“This isn’t what I f*cking want to hear. I want you to give me back my USB!” This time, when Cheng Weiguo finished roaring, he didn’t wait for Cheng Weiwan to reply and asked in an abrupt, cold voice, “I’m going to ask you one last time – will you hand over the USB?”
“I don’t want to hear ‘sorry’ – I want the USB. You’re determined to not give back the USB, is that right?” With the USB in someone else’s hands, Cheng Weiguo was a little agitated. He didn’t wait for Cheng Weiwan to finish speaking and butt in again in exasperation.
“Is that right?”
“Is that right?”
“Is that right?”
He asked “Is that right?” several times in a progressively louder voice, to the point where a murderous aura rushed to his head.
Cheng Weiwan remained silent over the phone for a while before replying with “Yes.” However, before she could finish speaking, she heard someone beside her saying, “Be careful.”
The voice sounded a little similar, but Cheng Weiwan couldn’t make out who it was as she was forcefully pushed away.
Cheng Weiwan fell to the ground. The fruit and vegetables she bought scattered on the ground. The pain made her gasp as she realized that the atmosphere around her was a little odd. She saw a car stopping crookedly by the road with a person laying on the ground in front of it in a pool of blood.
The car drove right into where she just stood… so that car intended to crash into her?
Cheng Weiwan raised her gaze. Through the windshield, she saw Cheng Weiguo sitting in the car.
I won’t give him the USB, so he actually wanted to crash into me with his car… I’m his biological daughter…
Cheng Weiwan stared at Cheng Weiguo in disbelief until someone cried, “Quickly call an ambulance! This person looks like they won’t make it.” Then she turned her head and looked down at the person in the pool of blood.
She was a little far away so she didn’t know who it was. Enduring the pain in her body, she climbed up from the ground and rushed over to the person lying on the ground.
She was only able to clearly see that person’s face when she drew closer.
It turned out… It turned out… to be him, Han Zhifan…
It seemed like Cheng Weiwan’s pressure points were hit as she suddenly came to a stop. She stared wholeheartedly transfixed on Han Zhifan without so much as moving an inch.
Han Zhifan seemed to have sensed her gaze as he tried hard to lift his eyelids and look over at her.
The moment he saw her clearly, he actually revealed a thin smile.
It felt like something had violently stabbed Cheng Weiwan’s heart, making her entire body tremble. Then she crouched on the ground, beside Han Zhifan.
She stared at him with trembling lips as he bled and she summoned the strength to force herself to call his name.
As his name escaped her mouth, the tears from the corners of her eyes couldn’t help but fall.
Han Zhifan wanted to raise his hands and help Cheng Weiwan wipe her tears, but he simply couldn’t move his body.
All he could do was move his lips and softly urge her, “Wanwan, don’t cry…”
She cried even more fiercely.
He knew full well that he couldn’t hold out for long before he would fall unconscious. He didn’t know if he would wake up after, so he had no time to keep urging her to stop crying. He spoke again but all he could muster was the main thing he wanted to say, “Wanwan, sorry…”
He apologized again.
Cheng Weiwan shook her head and whimpered, “Don’t speak anymore, don’t speak for now…”
She was afraid that if he spoke too much, he would bleed even more.
Han Zhifan didn’t hear what Cheng Weiwan said and continued moving his lips. His speech was choppy but Cheng Weiwan understood what he meant. “Wanwan, this time, I sincerely meant to save you. It’s not the same as last time. This time, it’s real…”
Cheng Weiwan knew he was talking about the hero-saves-the-damsel-in-distress scheme from back then.
“…Wanwan, does this count as ‘fighting battles and bleeding everywhere’?” With that said, Han Zhifan started coughing violently as a string of blood trickled from the corner of his lips. “…I only fight battles and bleed everywhere for you…”
Cheng Weiwan instinctively bit her lips, but the sound of her cries still managed to escape her lips.
“…Wanwan… It’s never too late to get back on the right path…”
She wanted to beg him to stop speaking and save his breath, but all she could manage while he continued to speak was the sound of her weeping.
“…It’s never too late to get back on the right path… It’s never too late to get back on the right path…”
She didn’t know just how many times he repeated those words, but his voice grew fainter and fainter. Eventually, he slowly closed his eyes and fell silent.
The sound of Cheng Weiwan’s uncontrollable cries rang out.
She heard the faint sound of the ambulance and police sirens. / boxnovel.com
Though the noise, she could hear a sentence becoming clearer from the bottom of her own heart: Yes. It’s never too late to get back on the right path. My hero finally came back…
