1701 Nearly Ran Into Someone
Shangguan Tong did not respond even after some time, so Huo Yao called her name again.
Shangguan Tong removed the handkerchief and said calmly, “I will help you check up some medical texts. Talk again soon.”
“Okay.” Huo Yao promptly agreed. “Thanks then, Aunt Tong.”
Shangguan Tong felt sad inside. “It’s no trouble at all.”
“Uh huh. Take care.” Huo Yao did not continue with the subject. Before long, she hung up the phone.
The phone in Shangguan Tong’s hand gradually slipped from her ear as she stood frozen in the yard. A gentle breeze gusted in the air. It seemed as though she might fall at any moment.
After some time, she lowered her eyes and placed the blood-stained handkerchief into her pocket. Slowly, she turned to head towards the secret chamber.
Shangguan Yun had been sitting by the side cautiously. He finally exhaled after Huo Yao put down her phone. “What did Aunt Tong say to you?”
Huo Yao raised her brow. She looked at him and knew his concerns. “She did not ask you to go back.”
Shangguan Yun touched his nose and asked curiously. “I heard you saying your eldest uncle is sick, right? What illness is it? Even you can’t treat him?”
“Which illness do you think is the hardest to treat?” asked Huo Yao rhetorically as she tapped her fingers on the table gently.
Shangguan Yun was disinterested in medicine, so he did not know which illness was the hardest to treat. He automatically shook his head. “Which illness?”
Huo Yao smiled without saying a word as she took a glass of juice from the side and slowly took a sip.
Shangguan Yun felt completely being held in suspense. He parted his lips wanting to continue asking, but the private room door opened, interrupting him.
Min Yu had come back after taking care of some work.
“Were you bored?” Min Yu sat down beside Huo Yao.
Huo Yao shrugged slightly and took another sip of juice. She simply replied. “We’re good. It’s a chance to open my eyes.”
After all, important officials and big shots from the underworld from all over the world had gathered downstairs.
Min Yu raised his brow looking at the calmness on her face. He spoke vaguely. “Not only guns and ammunition are sold here. Protective gear is also available.”
Min Yu remembered the protective gear he attempted to assemble previously. His so-called unworldly-wise girlfriend had given him the inspiration to assemble it.
Huo Yao acknowledged briefly, looking disinterested.
Shangguan Yun felt excited upon hearing this. “If I see anything I like at the fair, will you give it to me?”
“Sure thing. If you see anything suitable,” replied Min Yu without hesitation and great generosity.
The moment Shangguan Yun heard what he said, he cast a smug look at Huo Yao. “See? Brother-in-Law said okay.”
Huo Yao glanced at her, not bothering to answer the silly boy. She was already done drinking the juice in her hand and felt a little full. She stood up and said, “I’m going to the bathroom.”
She stepped out of the private room.
The person in charge was still standing at the door. When he saw Huo Yao walking out, he nodded reverently. “Where would you like to go?”
Huo Yao pointed at the sign hanging in the corridor.
The person in charge promptly caught her drift. “Walk to the end of the corridor and turn left.”
Huo Yao thanked him and headed to the bathroom.
After turning left, a tall man using his phone with his head lowered came walking over. Since he paid no attention to Huo Yao, he nearly ran into Huo Yao.
The man finally raised his head. When he saw Huo Yao’s face, something changed in his deep green eyes.
He spoke in English politely, “My bad.”
