Su Yue turned her head towards the staircase when it fell silent. She blinked her eyes as she stared.
She couldn’t decide.
If she took this step, would she still be able to turn back?
No, she knew she didn’t want to. But she was afraid that Ming Ansheng would be the one turning back instead.
Su Yue stood at the doorway for a long time. She turned around to go back to her room after shutting the door. She sat on her bed and rested against the head of the bed.
She raised her hands to pick up her phone and clicked on the screen. She checked the weather status; the capital city was minus five degrees tonight.
She clicked on Ming Ansheng’s text again. ‘I’m waiting outside your house until you’re willing to come out to talk to me.’
Su Yue restlessly twiddled with her phone, and her soul seemed to have left her body. She wasn’t throwing a tantrum; she was really afraid.
She didn’t want to think anymore.
She cast her phone aside, pulled her blanket over her head, and covered herself.
She couldn’t fall asleep so she shut her eyes firmly.
Suddenly, a thought struck that it jolted her awake. She fumbled for her phone and glanced at the time.
It was almost 11 p.m., and the temperature was now minus six degrees.
Su Yue felt as though an invisible force was pulling her and she agilely leaped to her feet. She put on her bedroom slippers and bolted out of her room and down the stairs.
The living room was dimly lit so she could still see her surroundings.
She dashed to the doors and opened it. A blast of icy wind attacked her and she wrapped her coat tightly around her. She peeked out to survey the courtyard.
Ming Ansheng was no longer standing there in his original spot.
A plethora of emotions enveloped Su Yue. Her heart was aching for him standing in the cold, but when she couldn’t see him, she felt disappointed.
She didn’t believe that he had left, so Su Yue ventured cautiously outside the courtyard, taking tiny steps.
Her tiny body was shivering badly.
The butler was fast asleep, and she didn’t see the security guards. She pressed the button to unlock the courtyard gates and walked out.
The night was quiet and peaceful. The winds messed up both Su Yue’s heart and hair, and she was feeling strangely empty.
The towering figure had gone away. He said he would wait for her, but he had left.
Su Yue’s heart fell and she turned around to go back.
Suddenly, a massive dark figure leaped out from the stone statues. She didn’t even have time to utter a sound when the man pulled her towards him.
Su Yue’s heart was pounding furiously when the man’s voice sounded in her ears. His breath was warm and comforting.
His familiar voice and breath comforted her and calmed her nerves. And it finally broke her last line of defense which she had built.
She stretched her hands and hugged the man tightly. “Uncle Ming.”
Her voice sounded as though she was on the verge of crying.
Ming Ansheng’s patted her back with his palm. After standing in the cold for so long, he was freezing from head to toe that there wasn’t any warmth in his hands anymore.
Su Yue could feel how cold he was despite being separated by layers of clothing. She tightened her arms around him. “Uncle Ming, no matter what happens in the future, can you promise not to leave me?”
“I won’t.” Su Yue’s words acted as a tranquilizer and Ming Ansheng heaved a sigh of relief. A tender and a relieved smile appeared on his face. “No matter what happens, I just need you to trust me.”
