At this moment, Xia Jing had already brought Su Wan to her private home.
Xia Jing saw the caller ID and looked at Su Wan. “Wan wan, Jing Chen called…”
Su Wan smiled at Xia Jing. “It’s fine. Just don’t tell him that I’m with you.”
Xia Jing sighed softly, pressed the answer button, and put it on speaker.
As soon as the call connected, before Xia Jing could say anything, Jing Chen’s voice came from the other end of the phone. “Xia Jing, did Wan wan go to your place? I came back at night and found that she wasn’t in the room… I just wanted to confirm that she was safe.”
Jing Chen thought for a while. Su Wan must still be sad about last night. Perhaps she would feel better with Xia Jing comforting her.
But to Su Wan, these words meant that Jing Chen minded that matter and did not want to look for her.
Su Wan felt aggrieved and her heart ached as if it was grabbed by a big hand.
Xia Jing was silent for a while before she looked at Su Wan. “Wan wan…”
Su Wan shook her head at Xia Jing in pain, her tears flowing uncontrollably.
Xia Jing felt terrible when she saw this, but she still went along with Su Wan. “Wan wan isn’t with me. Didn’t she go home with you this morning? Did you lose her again?”
In order to make it more realistic, Xia Jing could only pretend to be anxious.
There was silence.
Jing Chen did not suspect anything. He took a deep breath and said, “I’m sorry. It’s my fault.”
Xia Jing couldn’t pretend anymore and quickly said, “Then hurry up and look for her. It’s definitely not safe for her to be alone outside. If she goes missing again like last night, it’ll be your fault, Jing Chen!”
Jing Chen tightened his grip on the steering wheel and said after a long while, “Okay.”
Xia Jing hung up the phone and went to comfort Su Wan. “Wan wan, what happened between you two? Tell me and I’ll see if I can help you, okay?”
Su Wan shook her head in resistance. She closed her eyes in despair and tears streamed down her face. “Xiaxia, you can’t help me. Jing Chen and I… Maybe it’s over.”
Xia Jing sighed and did not ask further.
She knew that with Su Wan’s temper, no one could force her to say anything she didn’t want to.
Xia Jing sat beside Su Wan and took out a tissue to wipe her tears. “It’s fine, Wan wan. Don’t cry anymore. My Wan wan is so pretty. If you continue crying, you’ll become ugly.”
Wan wan looked good when she smiled.
Jing Chen had said similar things before.
At the thought of this, Su Wan cried even harder. She really missed Jing Chen and wanted to live a simple and ordinary life with him, but all of this was shattered last night and she could not go back.
Seeing that Su Wan was crying even harder, Xia Jing was at a loss. “Wan wan, you can still make desserts without Jing Chen. Didn’t we agree with President Xin yesterday that you would open a dessert shop together with her? Or, let’s go look for President Xin and let her make some desserts for you to try. You might not be so sad if you eat something sweet.”
She would not be sad if she ate something sweet.
Yes, eat something sweet.
But she had no appetite now. She could not eat at all.
“Xiaxia, I don’t have an appetite. Why don’t you order me a cup of coffee? The kind without sugar.”
She wondered if the most bitter coffee was as bitter as she was now.
Xia Jing was stunned for a moment before she asked, “Are you sure? It’ll really be bitter if you don’t add sugar.”
“I’m sure.” Su Wan nodded firmly.
Xia Jing could only order takeout from her phone. Just because she didn’t persuade her didn’t mean that she didn’t want to. In Su Wan’s current state, she needed company more. Otherwise, it was useless no matter what she said.
Half an hour later, the takeout arrived.
Xia Jing opened the package for her. Immediately, a bitter smell wafted out.
Xia Jing frowned and secretly glanced at Su Wan. Seeing that she was expressionless, she continued what she was doing and handed the coffee to Su Wan. “Be careful. It’s hot.”
Su Wan took the coffee and the bitter smell filled her nose. She felt a lump in her throat and tears filled her eyes.
It turned out that the coffee was already so bitter before she drank it.
