She refuses to admit it, and she hums angrily, “Do you think other won’t happy if you are not?”
Charlie taps her forehead with his fingers, “Do you know why I came to your room so late?”
“Why can Robert go to your house?”
For a brief moment, she grins, “Aren’t you jealous?”
He should be jealous! It really startles her.
“So what, I just want to know, why can’t I go?”
“You are so noble, I can’t treat you well.”
“In what capacity is Robert going to your house?”
Charlie thoughtfully says, “Then why can’t I pretend to be the driver of the boss?”
Karin is shocked by her words, “Come on, you are so noble. My parents would not believe it!”
But she adds, “But why are you going to my house?”
“In the future…”
“Don’t tell me that you will send me a wedding invitation when you get married, and then I can go to your house.”
“Yes, that’s what I mean.”
Charlie glances at her, shaking his head, “Sooner or later, you will anger me to death.”
“I will not.”
She narrows her smile and changes her solemn expression, “Yes, I have something to tell you.”
“Today Robert told me something about you, including the pork with peanuts…” Giving him a vigilant glance to make sure he doesn’t mind, and says, “I don’t expect that you will be unhappy sometimes…”
Charlie interrupts her, “I am still a person with emotions, surely I will be unhappy sometimes. There is no need to look at me with such compassionate eyes.”
“Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean anything else, I just want to express feelings.”
“Oh, what is it?”
He raises an eyebrow with interest.
“It’s a fate to meet each other. I am going to graduate. Before I leave, I hope you can promise me to protect yourself well, not to be hunted after like two years ago. No matter how many enemies you have, you must firmly believe that there are more people who need you than those who want to kill you.”
“Do you need me or do you want me to disappear?”
“You know that!”
“Well…” He helplessly sighs, “This Robert always likes to think me feeling lonely. Don’t be fooled by him.”
Karin doesn’t believe Robert will fool her. On the contrary, she feels that Charlie is just not used to being worried about.
“I mean it. Take care of yourself, will you?”
A person must live with belief, and as long as he promises, then he will certainly abide by it.
Charlie thinks for a few seconds, and suddenly says, “Since you are so worried about me, then stay with me.”
Karin raises her cheeks and mumbles vaguely, “Knowing that I won’t agree, and you still ask this.”
“There is still a glimmer of hope.”
A courageous man is not afraid of gambling, nor is he afraid of losing.
The phone rings, and Charlie glances at the number, and doesn’t answer the phone without hesitation.
It rings again, “What’s wrong?”
The sound is a bit alienated.
“Have you slept?”
Mia questions coldly, and seems to have known that he is not in the room.
Karin is so close to him that she hears what Mia says. She feels a little unsteady, and she always feels as if she has stolen something belonging to someone else, although, she does not do anything to cross the line.
Charlie never lies, especially to Mia. When he is about to answer truthfully, he is frightened by the self-blame eyes in front of him, and he says, “Yes.”
“OK, good night.”
With deep grievances, Mia hangs up the phone.
“Go back to your room.”
Karin opens the door for him, and she checks the empty corridor. She breaths a sigh of relief and turns around, but he presses her against the wall, “I can promise you that I will respect your choice and will not force you to be with me, but you also have to promise me that you cannot hide from me when you return to Zurich.”
She opens her mouth in horror, looking at the open door in panic, and says anxiously, “Let go of me. Someone might be outside.”
“I don’t care.”
“But I do.”
Karin’s voice is a little hoarse. She has never been hurt by anyone, so she doesn’t want to hurt others.
She never forgets her commitment to Mia. Until now, she has adhered to the bottom line in her heart and never wavers.
“If you promise me, I will let you go.”
“Okay, I promise you!”
In an anxiety, she couldn’t care too much. She could only give in to him.
Charlie leaves, the room calms down instantly, and his scent remains in the air.
Leaning against the door, her original unsettled heart is messed up, and she starts to worry a little, worries that the closer she gets to Charlie, the farther she would be with Barry…
