Lin Xinyan Zong - Chapter 52:
Chapter 52: Expectations Failed
Soon He Ruize’s voice came over, “Yan Yan, it’s me.”
Lin Xinyan’s voice was tense, “En.”
There was silence for a moment before saying, “The woman you were talking about is dead–”
“What?” Before He Ruize could finish his words, he was interrupted by Lin Xinyan’s excitement.
How could she be dead?
She was obviously healthy and not too old, so how could she say she was dead?
“Yan Yan.” He Ruize called her softly, comforting her agitation, “Don’t be anxious, it’s not necessary to investigate this matter from that woman-”
Lin Xinyan held the phone tightly in her hand, and she was still not at peace. She herself didn’t know why she was so upset. She didn’t know whether her expectations were lost or something else.
I just know that my heart is a bit confused.
She lowered her eyes, “No clues at all?”
Is she over thinking?
He Ruize fell silent.
The two people did not hang up the phone, but also did not speak.
The air is quiet enough to clearly hear each other’s breathing.
After a long time.
He Ruize opened his mouth, “Yan Yan–” he wanted to say something but stopped, “Do you really want to know who the father of the child is?”
Lin Xinyan asked herself in her heart.
When did this thought come to her?
It was when she found clues from Zong Jinghao that she had the urge to know.
“If the answer disappoints you and it’s not the person you think it is, will you still want to know?” He Rui Ze continued to ask.
One question after another, Lin Xinyan didn’t know how to answer.
Perhaps she was also conflicted inside.
“Why don’t you say anything?” He Ruize said with some force.
There are a thousand kinds of feelings in this world.
There was one kind, and it was called love over time.
She and Zong Jinghao lived under the one roof, will they give birth to feelings?
This is also the reason why He Rui Ze forced to ask her.
“I’m listening.” Lin Xinyan interrupted him, afraid that he would say something again that she couldn’t answer.
It was night-time and He Ruize was standing on the side of the road in a foreign country, the street lamp illuminates his appearance on the ground, and the elder is pulling—
He lowered his head and looked at his own shadow. In fact, he wondered if the man that night was the one Lin Xinyan suspected, Zong Jinghao.
The woman died, and the hotel’s surveillance was deleted.
But he still found out, he took Lin Xinyan’s photo and asked in the hotel, a waiter recognized Lin Xinyan and saw that night and told him clearly.
That person was Zong Jinghao.
He didn’t want to admit it, or maybe he didn’t want Lin Xinyan to know.
With a child, there is an involvement, even if Zong Jinghao does not like her, will it be because of the child, and-
He did not dare to think.
He didn’t want Lin Xinyan to know it.
He liked her and wanted to take care of her.
It was clear that he met her first.
He met her when she was still a child.
“Yan Yan, I found out the man …… from that night,” He Rui Ze clutched his phone tightly.
Lin Xinyan’s heart jerked up and stuck in her throat.
Suddenly she was enveloped by a dark shadow, she turned around, the person coming against the light, profound features hidden in the light, through the streak of dust obscured light, to see who was standing behind her, her eyes for a moment gushed with tension and wariness.
And yet, there was an inexplicable anticipation.
Expecting He Rui Ze to say what he guessed that result.
“It’s a local guy.” He Ruize’s voice came through the microphone.
This answer was like a muffled thunderbolt exploding in Lin Xinyan’s heart.
That meant what she saw in Zong Jinghao was a coincidence.
Her guess was also wrong?
“Are you listening, Yan Yan?”
“I have something else to do, I’ll hang up first.” Lin Xinyan hung up the phone in a panic, she was probably so flustered that she dropped her phone with a snap.
She was just about to bend down to pick it up when Zong Jinghao bent down and picked it up first. He looked at the number on the phone screen and slightly narrowed his eyes, “Who are you talking to on the phone, so nervous to see me?”
Lin Xinyan pretended to be calm, “I’m not nervous, it’s you who suddenly appeared and scared me.”
Zong Jinghao smiled, he bent down and stared at the woman who was pretending to be calm, “Is that so?”
Lin Xinyan’s spine chilled as he looked at her, her throat was so tight she couldn’t speak, at that moment Yu Ma came over with cut apples and relieved Lin Xinyan’s siege.
“This is an authentic Xixia apple, it’s sweet and crisp, try it.” Yu Ma placed the apples on the table.
Lin Xinyan hurriedly brushed aside Zong Jinghao’s gaze and went to insert the apples, putting them in her mouth they were indeed crisp, very sweet and juicy, she inserted one and handed it to Zong Jinghao, “Do you want to try it?”
Zong Jinghao lowered his eyes, didn’t move, just stared at her hand holding the apple.
Lin Xinyan passed it to his lips again, the apple juice dipped into his lips, cold, but could feel the sweet taste.
Lin Xingyan blinked her eyes, “It’s really sweet.”
Zong Jinghao bit into his mouth and gave her a look, “For the sake of you being so understanding, let’s spare you this time.”
Don’t think he doesn’t know she’s deliberately digressing.
Yu Ma smiled and withdrew from the room and went outside to watch people work.
Lin Xinyan pursed his lips and did not dare to retort, he chewed the apple and unbuttoned his suit and threw it on the sofa, sat in the sofa, saw the piano placed there and asked, “You know how to play the piano?”
Lin Xinyan turned around, looked at the piano and nodded, “I used to, but I haven’t touched it for a long time, so I’m afraid my fingers are stiff.”
She said, looking down at her fingers.
Zong Jinghao’s gaze fell over, her fingers are slender, the skin is white, but the palm is calloused, his brow wrinkled, just want to reach for her hand, but she stood up and walked towards the piano.
She sat in front of the piano with her back to the light, her fingers gently fell on the keys, when a crisp sound came out of the keys.
The sound was crisp and pleasant.
She clenched her hand, looking for the feeling, although it has been a long time since I touched it, but after all, many years of learning, the courage to do it still.
She closed her eyes and took a deep breath as she gently placed her fingers on the keys.
When her fingers pressed the keys, the melodious tune, “Sadness and Happiness” slowly appeared.
This is the first song she learned, and it is also her latest joy.
The past presented itself in her mind scene by scene, happy, sad –
Her life is short, but she has experienced too much.
Zong Jinghao gazed at her back, as if he was contemplating something.
The calluses on her hands, were they left behind when she was in country A?
Was it painful to be abandoned by her father?
He was thinking out of the blue, suddenly interrupted by a cell phone ringing, he seemed unhappy, this is not and appropriate ringing, frown creases thick, Lin Xinyan seems to hear the sound, stop the movement of the hands.
The air was instantly quiet.
The ringing of the phone became even clearer.
Lin Xinyan got up and walked over, curious why he did not answer the phone.
Walking over, he saw the name displayed on the phone, Bai Zhuwei.
Lin Xinyan sat down opposite him, “It’s Miss Bai, why didn’t you answer?”
Zong Jinghao glanced at her, as if he disliked her for talking too much.
Of course he didn’t want to pick up, that’s why he didn’t pick up.
The caller was very patient, he didn’t pick up the phone and kept ringing until he did.
Lin Xinyan laughed, “Are you afraid I’ll hear you whispering? Then I won’t bother you–”
She stood up after saying that, just when she wanted to leave, Zong Jinghao grabbed her wrist and pulled her hard, Lin Xinyan fell to his lap, she just wanted to move, but Zong Jinghao grabbed her waist and held her tightly.
The other hand picked up the phone–
