COLD CEO AND ARROGANT WIFE - Season 3 Episode 13
When Sora came back to the hotel they had moved to just last night, she learned that the whole production crew had started scattering. Everyone was leaving.
He Rou came to Sora’s side and told her, “I’m also leaving now.”
Sora rubbed her face, “I thought you’d stay.”
“I want to,” answered He Rou honestly. “However, this time I can’t stay. My grandfather sent people from home to take me back. He said he won’t allow me to be a part of this movie anymore.”
“Your grandfather?” asked Sora in surprise. “Doesn’t he usually not get involved with your career?”
“He doesn’t,” replied He Rou. “And that’s why I find it weird that this time, he is actively insisting me to come back home.” She patted Sora’s shoulder and added, “It seems like Hyson isn’t a simple person. Your cousin has messed with people she shouldn’t have. And now, all of us will have to bear the consequences of it.” She paused briefly and thought of something, “Now, I know why my boyfriend advised me to be careful around Hyson.”
“Huh? Your boyfriend did what?”
“He said to me that Hyson might be a simple person but the people behind him aren’t simple. So, I should take care of him on the set and make sure no one gets to play schemes on him.” She shook her head in disappointment, “I’m definitely gonna have an argument with him because I wasn’t able to take care of Hyson.”
“I’m sorry!” said Sora. “Because of me…”
“Sora, stop blaming yourself,” told He Rou. “You couldn’t have seen the future. Just like I didn’t think that while I was shooting, something like this would happen to Hyson. Take care of yourself. I’ll let you know if I found out any details.”
While Sora sent her off, she got a call from her brother. “Bro, what’s up?”
“Just what the hell did you get yourself into?” came the response from the other side.
“Bro, I’m sorry for getting you involved in this.”
“I’m not the one you’re supposed to apologize to.” The person on the other side took a deep breath and went on, “Come back home as soon as possible. Let’s see what I can help you with.”
“Thanks for not giving up on me,” said Sora in a small voice.
“You’ve never caused me any trouble Sora. You’ve always been sensible. But this time, you should know that you’ve put me in a very difficult position. And also, against some really tough people.”
Sora felt really bad when she heard all of that from her brother. She took a while to calm herself and settle her emotions before she went back to the room which she shared with Amiah.
Seeing that Amiah was busy eating a whole cake all by herself, she didn’t even look at her and walked over to gather her stuff before packing it up.
“You’re leaving?” asked Amiah when she noticed her movements.
“So, you’re giving up so easily? Wasn’t it, your dream to make this movie a success? Why are you giving up so easily?”
Sora faced her and replied, “I’m not giving up. I’m being realistic instead of being stubborn like you. Staying here won’t fix anything. I have to go back and look for a way out of this trouble.”
“Did you call your brother?”
Sora nodded her head, “I did. And he said he won’t be able to help much. All he can do is save me. The rest, he can’t promise me.”
Hearing that Amiah’s mood went to a new low. Her brother didn’t even offer to save her. She had been so used to getting what she wanted or things going her way that now that Shui Xian said he won’t be helping her, she was feeling lost and uneasy.
She didn’t know why she felt this way. And she was even scared by the idea that her brother was giving up on her. He had given in to her for years but this time, he was truly fed up with her. She never thought she’d ever find herself in such a situation.
“Didn’t you go to visit Hyson at the hospital?”
“Yes, I did. And as you said, I only went there to visit him. It had no other purpose.”
Amiah frowned at her, “He is the cause of this mess, why don’t you ask him to solve it?”
“No, Mia! He isn’t the cause of this mess!” Sora said sternly. “And I’m not shameless enough to ask him for help. Do you not even realize what situation he was in? He could have died out there!”
“But he didn’t!” Amiah shot back. “Isn’t he fine now? Why are we getting punished over a possibility that didn’t even happen?!”
“You’re truly making me question why we are friends,” said Sora, sounding like she was suppressing her anger now. “Put yourself in the same situation and think! You always say you love your brother the most in this world. Then imagine him being in a similar situation as Hyson was. Would you still be acting like this?”
Amiah’s heart shook when Sora put her words like that. She was scared even at the thought of not being able to talk to Shui Xian again. But losing him would drive her crazy!
“It’s better if you also pack up your bags already,” advised Sora. “We won’t be able to fix anything here. You and I don’t even know who we are up against right now.”
With a heavy heart, Amiah nodded at her and turned to first finish her cake before packing. Sora didn’t stop her. She already knew that something was bothering Amiah and that’s why the latter was eating so much cake right now. Even though on normal days, she doesn’t even touch sweets. But whenever she felt uneasy, she would eat a cake.
Sora zipped up her bag and washed up her face before putting her coat back on. It was time to leave this place. She had to take a step back if she wanted to move forward later on.
