“Didn’t you already guess on the phone that the letter was from me?” Lan Zhi gave a bitter laugh, “Actually, that is the only thing that I did on my own. I don’t know if he would blame me for that.”
Luo Qing Chen bit her lip. She took all of the letters from her bag and put them on the table. Looking at them with red eyes, she shouted, “Why aren’t you answering my question!”
The table was covered in letters, from proper writing to shaky writing.
These thirty six letters were all covered in words.
But there was only one thing written, I’m sorry.
Other than that, there was nothing else.
There was no explanation, there wasn’t even an extra single word. Other than I’m sorry, there was I’m sorry.
“Because Qing Chen is so smart, the answer should already be there. He often said that his Qing Chen was too smart……” Lan Zhi gave a shrug before saying with a smile, “Otherwise, how could you come find me with your personality?”
“I……I don’t know.” Luo Qing Chen looked away. Her eyes became more red and filled with more mist.
“Zhi Zhi, here’s your milk. Miss, your juice.” Da Yue’s appearance interrupted their conversation. He said with a smile, “You are the first friend of Zhi Zhi’s that I’ve met.”
“Qing Chen.” Lan Zhi took the young man’s hand and said, “He is Da Yue, he is my fiance.”
“We will be holding a wedding in London next month, just for the two of us.” Lan Zhi gave a shrug before saying with a bright smile, “Da Yue’s family died in a plane crash and I……have no friends.”
Da Yue gently patted her head, “Right! I’ve always said that Zhi Zhi is too introverted and she can’t be friends with anyone. But I like her like this because this kind of her only belongs to me.”
“Alright! Go and work!”
“Alright, you guys talk.”
After Da Yue left, Luo Qing Chen slightly knitted her brows. She looked at Lan Zhi with a bit of doubt in her eyes, “Introverted? Are you that kind of person?”
She had been deskmates with her for so long, she never knew that she was an introverted kind of person.
“You know I’m not.” Lan Zhi put her cheeks in her hands and said with a smile, “But I have to become that kind of person because I promised that young man that I would help him act out a fairy tale.”
At that moment, Lan Zhi’s eyes couldn’t help turning red. If she reached out to touch her eyes, tears might have started coming out.
Luo Qing Chen’s clouded heart slowly began to clear.
And she wanted to take a step back. She wanted to go back into the smoke and not come out.
“I……don’t know what you are saying.” Luo Qing Chen quickly put away the letters on the table and said, “I’m leaving.”
“Qing Chen.” Lan Zhi grabbed her wrist and said, “Three years, time can heal many things. Actually, I don’t know when you would find out, whether it was three years or thirty years. But he said that he hoped that you would never find out.”
“Don’t speak……” Luo Qing Chen looked down as her tears couldn’t help come out.
She didn’t know why she was crying when she didn’t know anything, but the feeling of despair that filled her heart was so cold.
“But I think……” Lan Zhi revealed a smile, “He was too sad. If I asked him to write down everything he wanted to say to you back then, he would only ever be able to write these words.”
“I’m sorry……I’m sorry……I’m sorry……”
