Alex suddenly became interested and asked excitedly, “Brother, can you really arrange for us to meet Vice President Ning?”
The man in the black bag nodded gently. “Leave me your phone number.”
“No problem, no problem! I haven’t asked your name yet. By the way, I would like to ask, what’s your relationship with Vice President Ning?”
“It doesn’t matter. Just wait for the call.”
“Okay, thank you first…”
Alex didn’t know what scruples the man in the black bag had, and it was inconvenient to ask more, so he reported his phone number.
The man in black didn’t say anything and didn’t leave any number. He just remembered Alex’s number and left in a hurry.
Big Ken watched the man in black leave and frowned slightly. “Young Master, is it a trick? If he is really Ning Haohan’s friend, what a coincidence! We are trying to find a way to meet him, but a completely strange person immediately came to help us?”
Alex thought for a moment and replied, “It doesn’t matter. I just gave him my phone number. If someone with ulterior motives wants to find my phone number, even if I don’t tell him, he can find it through other channels. If he really arranges us to meet Ning Haohan, we can save a lot of trouble.”
“Well… what you said makes sense.”
Big Ken also thought it through. He just left a phone number and did not suffer any substantial loss.
Alex was more optimistic than Big Ken, but he did not put all his hopes on the man in the black bag. When he returned to the car, according to the original plan, he asked Xie Si to send Ning Haohan’s contact number. There were a total of two phone numbers. One was Ning Haohan’s private number, and the other was his mobile number.
After thinking about it for a few seconds, Alex first dialed Ning Haohan’s phone number. It had been a long time since someone answered the bell, until it hung up automatically. Thinking that it was time to get off work, it was understandable that he could not get in touch with the phone number, he dialed Ning Haohan’s private number. As a result, no one answered it, so he could only give up for the time being.
Big Ken drove into the main road, looked at Alex, and said with some embarrassment, “Young Master, I have something to ask you for help.”
“Hmm?” Alex was stunned. “Brother Big Ken, why are you so polite to me? Just say it.”
“Young master, it’s like this. Ever since Cynthia had woken up, Hunter has become a completely different person. He’s been out of his mind all day and has been staying in the hospital all this while. Just now, I saw that his face was haggard and his beard was all messed up. He doesn’t even have the most basic image. On the outside, it’s still secondary. The main reason is that he’s completely like Huang’er and doesn’t have the slightest bit of spirit. We can’t go on like this…”
“You said that… I also noticed it. I persuaded him to go back to rest more than once, but he refused to leave the hospital and insisted on staying with beautiful Cynthia. He became like that out of concern for beautiful Cynthia, so I didn’t say much. Alas… This is really tricky!”
What Alex said was just a small problem.
Now the real headache was where Cynthia and Hunter should go.
This question was very serious. Alex and Big Ken, as observers, were anxious and sighed.
As the person involved, Hunter was even more anxious as if he was scratching his heart. He knew what Alex and Isla said was reasonable. As soon as Cynthia was rescued, her body and mind had just recovered, so he couldn’t be anxious. But Cynthia’s attitude toward him made his heart hang in the air, and he couldn’t calm down at all.
Originally, Isla wanted everyone to have a meal outside, and he was tired of ordering takeout every day.
However, Hunter refused Isla’s invitation with the excuse that ” Cynthia can’t do without people”. He watched Isla and Cynthia’s parents enter the elevator and then turned back to the door of Cynthia’s ward. He took a few deep breaths, adjusted his condition, pushed the door open, slowly walked to the bedside, squeezed a smile at Cynthia, and asked with concern, “Cynthia, are you thirsty? Drink water? Have you eaten fruit?”
Cynthia leaned against the pillow and stared blankly at the syringe on her arm. Her body was motionless, as if she had fallen asleep, but her eyes were open. Hearing Hunter’s question, she frowned slightly and shook her head. That was all. She did not look at Hunter or respond, nor did she say a word.
After a few days, Hunter was distracted by Cynthia’s reaction. He had never had a chance to be alone before, so he didn’t say much. Now, his acquaintances had gone out for dinner, and the medical staff was not there. The ward was very quiet. He planned to take this opportunity to communicate with Cynthia.
He pulled a chair and sat down beside the bed. According to the draft in advance, he whispered to Cynthia, “Cynthia, did we have a misunderstanding? Why do I feel that your attitude toward me suddenly changed greatly without warning?”
Cynthia remained motionless, pretending not to hear anything.
Hunter paused for a moment and continued with a wry smile, “Cynthia, you know, I am a careless person. I often do something wrong and offend others, but I don’t know. Besides, I am straightforward and can’t hide my thoughts. I can’t figure out what others are thinking. If I accidentally offend you, or if there is anything you don’t like, please tell me directly…”
Hunter was fully prepared for this communication with Cynthia. In the absence of any response from Cynthia, he still said it intermittently for ten minutes, which made his draft and every part of his temporary thought clear at once.
After saying so much, the only purpose was to let Cynthia open her heart.
But Cynthia didn’t say anything.
Hunter’s heart was getting colder and colder. Realizing that Cynthia was determined to treat him as a stranger, he sighed and slowly got up. Although he did not know why Cynthia had become like this, he knew that it was not sweet to force her to do so, so he forced himself to make a choice. “Cynthia, since you entered the hospital, I can vaguely guess that I was self-satisfied in the past. Maybe from the beginning, you did not treat me as a friend, but just talked to me for the sake of Young Master. Yes, I am just a security guard, how can I make friends with you? I don’t deserve to… chase you. Unfortunately, I understand too late. In the end, I apologize to you. I’m sorry to disturb you! I will ask Young Master to change my position. I will try my best to not let you see me again in the future, so that you won’t be upset…”
After that, Hunter took a deep breath and turned to walk outside.
Cynthia finally raised her head. She felt a sharp pain in her heart and her nose was sore. After holding back her tears for a long time, she finally broke down. She quickly wiped away her tears and put on a cold face. She shouted at the back of Hunter, “Wait a minute! We haven’t made it clear yet. Why are you in a hurry?”
Hunter, who was originally listless, suddenly trembled all over, just like a sleepy person who was awakened by the click. He turned around in shock, rushed to the edge of the bed, and asked with hope, “Cynthia, are you finally willing to talk to me? That’s great, that’s great…”
“Stop! Didn’t you already say what you wanted to say just now? Next, it’s my turn.”
“Okay, okay, as long as you are willing to talk to me, I will do anything!”
“Listen carefully! First of all, I want to correct your wrong point of view. I used to treat you as a friend, not because I wanted to make friends with you for the sake of Alex. But later, I found that you are not as good as I thought. I am very disappointed with this and don’t want to continue to date you…”
“No… Cynthia, tell me more about it. What did I do wrong?”
“Did you promise me that as long as you were here, you would protect me and not let anything happen to me? As a result, I was kidnapped under your nose. What’s even more unacceptable is that why didn’t you choose to save me when you were faced with a choice?”
When Hunter heard this, his heart trembled violently. He looked at Cynthia with confusion. After thinking for a while, he slowly replied, “Cynthia, I’m sorry. I didn’t save you at the first time. But protecting President Sullivan is my duty, and it’s a task personally assigned by Young Master. I can’t afford to lose…”
