“Kidnapping?” I was more nervous.
But I really couldn’t help him.
“My husband speculated. The AI Lab of the Giant group was on fire and the data was missing. After that, their company lost a lot. This time, if it is exposed, the Giant group will basically go bankrupt.”
Linda’s words made me nervous.
So the possibility of being kidnapped by someone seemed very high!
“Happy broken pupa, gorgeous new impulse…”
When I listened to Linda and stared at the computer screen, my cell phone rang.
I looked down at it. It was Ming, and I picked it up.
He called to invite me to lunch. He said he was just free.
I hesitated for a moment and agreed.
I hung up and asked Linda, “I’m going to lunch with Ming. Are you going with me?”
“No.” Linda shook her head. “I don’t want to disturb you.”
When I went downstairs, Ming wore a white turtleneck, a pair of jeans and a gray blue coat.
He had a light pink wool ball in his hand.
When he saw me, he came straight up and spread the light pink wool ball on his hand and wrapped it around my neck.
I was stunned.
It was a scarf.
As soon as I said that, he leaned over and a cold kiss fell on my lips.
But he soon straightened up and there was a smile on his face. He asked me as if nothing had happened. “What would you like to eat?”
I didn’t answer him. I put my hand on the scarf and asked him, “this is…”
“I give it to you. I’m afraid you’re cold.” Ming reached out to help me with the scarf and asked, “do you like it? A nurse recommended it. She said everyone else bought it, so I bought it for you.”
Actually, I didn’t think light pink suited me very well.
It was girlish.
But Ming cared about me so I didn’t say it.
Because I had work to do in the afternoon, Ming and I went downstairs to have lunch at the fast food restaurant.
As I was about to finish eating, a man with a plate passed by our table. He sprinkled some soup on my clothes.
Because of the oil in the soup, I had no choice but to get up and go to the bathroom to wash my clothes.
Fortunately, there were only a few drops of soup. I used the hand sanitizer in the bathroom to wash my clothes.
When it was done, I tidied up before I got out of the bathroom.
Ming was on the phone again when I came out.
He had his back to me. I could see a small half of his face from the bathroom. I looked over and found Ming’s face was very serious.
Although I couldn’t hear what he was talking about, my intuition told me that what he was talking about was related to Sean.
I got closer and walked behind him. I heard him say, “it’s no use for him to escape. If this engagement dinner doesn’t go well, I will destroy the AI files. I will go to hell with him.”
With that, he hung up.
I was stunned.
Ming’s back and beige sweater just looked soft, but now they looked cold and frightening.
What did he mean by what he said just now?
Was everything related to him?
Did he let Sean’s AI project burn?
At this point, I remembered what Sean said.
He said he would lose if he wagered with Ming.
Was it because Ming was insidious?
He looked at his watch and looked back for me. He suddenly saw me standing behind him. He was slightly surprised, then he immediately put on a gentle mask and looked at me and smiled, “when did you come?”
I hesitated and smiled reluctantly and said, “I just came. I saw you were on the phone, so I waited in the distance for a while.”
Ming said nothing.
I didn’t have an appetite, so I made an excuse for Ming to pay.
I said goodbye to him and went upstairs.
When I got upstairs, Linda spoke to me, but I didn’t notice her because I was thinking about what Ming had just said.
I didn’t hear her until she called out to me three times.
Linda frowned. “What’s the matter with you? You’re not normal after lunch.”
“Yes.” I nodded. “Linda, what do you think of Ming?”
“He is a good man.”
I turned the chair around and looked in the direction of the window.
I looked out of the window at the blue sky and white clouds and said, “I just overheard him on the phone. What happened to the Giant group seems to be related to him, including AI and the disappearance of Sean…”
“What?” Linda froze. “How could it be? Isn’t he just the dean of the Sunshine Hospital?”
“No, he is also the dean of Sacred Heart Hospital. I don’t know how much assets he has. Sean told me to stay away from him a long time ago. He said Ming was insidious, but I didn’t listen to him…” I paused and said, “this time, it seems that Ming is afraid that the engagement dinner can not be held normally, so he threatens Sean with AI data.”
I didn’t want to accept that all this was because of me.
“No, if so, he…” She paused and said, “he is unfathomable.”
He was unfathomable.
Yes, Ming really seemed to be described in this way.
I sat there and my head was in a mess.
What did Ming mean by “it’s useless for him to escape”?
Was it true that he kidnapped Sean and Sean escaped?
It was confusing my mind. I couldn’t help but think about Sean.
I was afraid something would happen to him.
Now I didn’t want to be with him.
I just hoped that both of us could live in this world safely.
Even if we never met again, I just wanted him to live.
Finally, I couldn’t help but pick up the phone and call Ming. As soon as I got through, I said, “I want to see you. I have something to tell you.”
“Well, I know. I’m downstairs. You can go downstairs anytime.”
Ming said over the phone.
His tone was normal.
At that moment, I understood that he knew that I heard what he said and I would call him.
At the moment when I heard him say that, my heart was desolate.
Linda was right. Ming was really unpredictable.
I went downstairs.
Ming was still wearing the same clothes and standing at the place where he was waiting for me at noon.
The expression on his face was as mild as ever.
He saw me and frowned, “why don’t you wear the scarf? Don’t you like it?”
