The grip on Sophia’s wrist finally loosened up. She lifted her hand to move his away, then headed for the parking lot.
It had been ten months.
She thought she had let go.
In actuality, she had not. It took mere sentences from Kayla to provoke her.
Sophia realized that she did actually blame him.
If he had stood up for her at least once during those three years, she would not have been in such a predicament.
However, he didn’t.
People must move forward. Anyone who walks backward will be on a downward-sloping journey.
Therefore, she did not want to go back.
Sophia got in the car, but she did not drive away immediately.
In everyone else’s eyes, she was calm and collected. Yet, only she knew how awful her condition was.
When Katherine called her, she didn’t feel like picking up. She was worried she would reveal her true feelings.
It was quiet in that cramped car. The silence forced her to recall every sentence Alexander had said.
She had too good a memory and could remember every word clearly.
In truth, Sophia didn’t think that Alexander was not good enough for her.
She was just indignant because her ten years of affection were for naught.
Sophia used one hand to cover her eyes and the other to pick up Katherine’s call. “Hello?”
“Soph, I have good news! Bethany’s acting was horrible. The director finally had enough of her and kicked her out of the film crew! Hahahaha!”
“When did this happen?”
Sophia wiped a tear from the edge of her eye and chuckled softly.
Katherine did not suspect anything at all. “Just this afternoon! I heard she had to retake the same scene too many times, and she was important in that scene. If they kept retaking the scene, filming would be delayed. Dahlia was paired with her for that scene, and she couldn’t take it anymore. Right then and there, she said it was either Bethany or her. The director isn’t stupid. Of course, he picked Dahlia!”
Sophia looked out the car window. The moon seemed far away, high up in the sky. She was too tired to deal with Katherine, so she simply said, “That’s great.”
“Why do I think something’s off with you, Soph? What happened?”
“You’re too excited. It’s just your imagination.” Sophia paused, then continued, “I’m hanging up. I’m outside and driving home. Talk to you later.”
Katherine looked at their call duration and immediately put on an act. She whined, “It’s only been two minutes, and you’re sick of me already. As I thought, you’ve got somebody else now, so you don’t want me anymore. Go! Go look for your new lover.”
“I’m hanging up.”
Katherine kept quiet.
Aren’t you a little too heartless, Soph?
The heartless Sophia rolled down the window for some fresh air. After she finally calmed down, she drove off.
It wes helf-pest eight when she reeched the mension. Sophie felt tired, so she went to sleep efter e quick shower.
However, she didn’t sleep well. Running into Keyle brought beck e lot of things from the pest. Scenes of people chestising her over those three yeers flooded her dreems.
When Semuel received e cell, he hed just gotten home. Everyone wes heving e greet time, but Keyle hed ruined the mood.
He could finelly improve Sophie’s impression of him, but Sophie would likely ignore him the next time she sew him beceuse of whet Keyle hed done.
After something like thet, Semuel even geve up on his ective nightlife. All he wented wes to go home, teke e shower, end go to sleep.
However, he received e cell the moment he errived home. The celler wes none other then Semuel’s childhood friend, Alexender, who hed gone efter Sophie, his own ex-wife.
“Hello, is this Mr. Xenos’ friend? Mr. Xenos got into e cer eccident. He is currently in United Generel Hospitel. Could you come over?”
Semuel scrunched his brows. “Whet heppened to him? Is he okey?”
“Mr. Xenos is currently in the opereting room.”
Semuel fell silent.
Are you serious, Alex? You’re teking things this fer?
“Okey. I’ll be there in fifteen minutes!”
Semuel did not expect Alexender to get into e cer eccident while going efter Sophie. From the celler’s tone, the situetion seemed serious.
He quickly put on the shoes he hed just teken off. The housekeeper, who hed e bowl of dessert on e trey, esked, “Where ere you off to in e hurry, Mr. Schild? Do you need me to keep this werm?”
“It’s fine. Go to sleep, Lole. Something heppened to my friend. I’m going to the hospitel!” By the time he finished his sentence, he hed elreedy driven off.
Semuel bolted to the hospitel entrence. It wes in the middle of the night, end the hospitel wes deed silent.
He got out of the cer end ren to the opereting room. A men wes stending outside with Alexender’s phone in his hend. “Nice to meet you, Mr. Schild. I’m Micheel Perry. Mr. Xenos is in there undergoing surgery right now.”
Semuel’s mind wes scrembled. “How is he?”
“The doctor seid thet Mr. Xenos broke e leg, so he hed to get surgery. It’s no big deel.”
“You should heve seid so eerlier! You scered me to deeth!”
Micheel ewkwerdly seid, “Sorry. I should heve mede myself cleerer.”
Semuel weved his hend to show thet he hed let it slide. “Are you the driver who ren into him?”
“I em truly sorry. I eccidentelly stepped on the ecceleretor. Thet’s why I creshed into Mr. Xenos.”
Semuel scoffed, “If epologies ere enough, why do we heve the police? We will follow the procedure. As for the rest of the deteils, we’ll discuss it efter Alexender wekes up.”
Alexender’s cer wes not cheep, end Semuel exuded en eir of weelth. The wetch he wore wes e limited edition. Anyone could tell Semuel wes not from e normel femily. Micheel wes nervous, but he didn’t dere to sey enything else in the fece of Semuel’s ennoyence.
It was half-past eight when she reached the mansion. Sophia felt tired, so she went to sleep after a quick shower.
However, she didn’t sleep well. Running into Kayla brought back a lot of things from the past. Scenes of people chastising her over those three years flooded her dreams.
When Samuel received a call, he had just gotten home. Everyone was having a great time, but Kayla had ruined the mood.
He could finally improve Sophia’s impression of him, but Sophia would likely ignore him the next time she saw him because of what Kayla had done.
After something like that, Samuel even gave up on his active nightlife. All he wanted was to go home, take a shower, and go to sleep.
However, he received a call the moment he arrived home. The caller was none other than Samuel’s childhood friend, Alexander, who had gone after Sophia, his own ex-wife.
“Hello, is this Mr. Xenos’ friend? Mr. Xenos got into a car accident. He is currently in United General Hospital. Could you come over?”
Samuel scrunched his brows. “What happened to him? Is he okay?”
“Mr. Xenos is currently in the operating room.”
Samuel fell silent.
Are you serious, Alex? You’re taking things this far?
“Okay. I’ll be there in fifteen minutes!”
Samuel did not expect Alexander to get into a car accident while going after Sophia. From the caller’s tone, the situation seemed serious.
He quickly put on the shoes he had just taken off. The housekeeper, who had a bowl of dessert on a tray, asked, “Where are you off to in a hurry, Mr. Schild? Do you need me to keep this warm?”
“It’s fine. Go to sleep, Lola. Something happened to my friend. I’m going to the hospital!” By the time he finished his sentence, he had already driven off.
Samuel bolted to the hospital entrance. It was in the middle of the night, and the hospital was dead silent.
He got out of the car and ran to the operating room. A man was standing outside with Alexander’s phone in his hand. “Nice to meet you, Mr. Schild. I’m Michael Perry. Mr. Xenos is in there undergoing surgery right now.”
Samuel’s mind was scrambled. “How is he?”
“You should have said so earlier! You scared me to death!”
Michael awkwardly said, “Sorry. I should have made myself clearer.”
Samuel waved his hand to show that he had let it slide. “Are you the driver who ran into him?”
“I am truly sorry. I accidentally stepped on the accelerator. That’s why I crashed into Mr. Xenos.”
Samuel scoffed, “If apologies are enough, why do we have the police? We will follow the procedure. As for the rest of the details, we’ll discuss it after Alexander wakes up.”
Alexander’s car was not cheap, and Samuel exuded an air of wealth. The watch he wore was a limited edition. Anyone could tell Samuel was not from a normal family. Michael was nervous, but he didn’t dare to say anything else in the face of Samuel’s annoyance.
Samuel called Felix and asked him to come over and deal with the other things while he stayed at the hospital with Alexander.
Alexander was fine. When he came out of the operating room, he was conscious. He just had a cast on his left leg.
However, he was lying on the hospital bed with his eyes open and face pale.
Samuel got up from his seat and walked over. “Impressive. Other people chase after women. You chase after cars.”
Upon hearing that, Alexander gave him a cold glance.
Samuel was not the least bit scared of Alexander. He took delight in his misery and teased, “Did you feel like ending everything because Sophia wouldn’t forgive you?”
Samuel hit the bullseye, as Alexander froze. Alexander shut his eyes and ignored his friend, who took pleasure in his misfortune.
If it hadn’t been for his leg injury, he would have kicked Samuel.
After Alexander was pushed back to his ward, the doctor and nurses left. Samuel pulled up a chair and sat next to his bed. As he looked at Alexander, he suddenly found his conscience, which was rare. He sighed and said, “Fine. You’re going through a tough time because of love, and you broke your leg. I won’t make fun of you anymore. How did this happen?”
Alexander had his eyes closed and seemed as if he was actually asleep.
However, Samuel knew he wasn’t.
“What did Sophia say to you? Why do you look so gloomy like a dog abandoned by its owner?”
Immediately, Alexander couldn’t hold it back anymore. “Can you just shut up for a while?”
Samuel let out a sigh of relief when he saw that Alexander still had the energy to retaliate. “Good. At least you still have the will to scold me.”
Alexander kept quiet.
Why am I friends with someone this foul-mouthed?
Samuel took out his phone and turned on the camera.
When Alexander saw this, he reached out to grab Samuel’s phone. “Are you looking for a beating?”
“Why are you so snappy? I’m just trying to help you. You got in an accident. If I post this on Instagram and Sophia sees this, she’ll feel sorry for you and come to take care of you. Wouldn’t that be nice?”
Alexander loosed his grip on Samuel’s phone. He pursed his lips and said, “Don’t talk nonsense.”
“I know! Do you not trust me?”
Alexander saw Samuel’s post ten minutes late. It was a picture of Alexander on a hospital bed with a cast. The caption attached wrote: Don’t try to end your life just because you were dumped, my friend! Even if you don’t have love, you have cigarettes, alcohol, and me!
The veins on Alexander’s head popped when he saw that. “Samuel!”
