Chapter 298: So Close, So Far
“What’s wrong?” Hunter answered, in a different voice.
His voice sounded somehow distant, but Emily could tell that it was him.
She felt more familiar with it than at night.
Emily was confused and said, “Yes, I’ll finish within five minutes.”
“I’m listening,” he said and seemed to be strangely patient.
Emily took a deep breath before continuing, “Wendy lied to you. She is not your cousin, I am!”
Hearing her words, Hunter remained silent for a while.
Emily was afraid of having no time to explain, “I had Manson to take your grandma’s blood sample.
After a DNA test in the hospital, the result shows that she is my immediate family.”
“If you don’t believe me, I will show you the report. You can check it according to her DNA information
in the hospital.”
“She is my grandma. I have the report now.”
“Did you show it to anyone else?” Hunter asked.
Emil said, “Joe.”
Hunter stopped talking again, and it was deadly silent.
Emily wasn’t sure what he was thinking.
Before what had happened tonight, she was sure that Hunter would believe her.
However, it was different now.
When Hunter was quiet, Emily became nervous.
“If you don’t believe me, you can make a DNA test again. I’m on call.”
“As for Wendy, she indeed lied to you! Don’t trust her.”
Hunter remained quiet, which made Emily anxious.
She couldn’t stand a second anymore.
After a long time, Hunter continued, “Give the report to Liam, and I will check it.”
Emily felt relaxed hearing his words. As long as he agreed to check it, he would soon believe her.
“Alright, when will Liam come over? I’m in the dormitory of the Sharp Group.”
Having finished talking, however, Emily didn’t want to hang up.
By talking with Hunter on the phone, although he was far away, Emily felt he was around her.
Emily was sad about his indifference tonight. But now, she missed him so much. She felt he was by her
So far, yet so close.
They probably would never see each other again.
That was not what Emily wanted, so she didn’t want to hang up.
However, in the end, Hunter said in a different voice, “I need to work. I’ll call you when the result comes
Before she reacted, he hung up.
Sitting on the bed, Emily watched the screen dimmed slowly.
She couldn’t prevent herself from woolgathering.
It was probably because of the ginger soup, she failed to fall asleep.
As everyone knew, drinking a ginger soup at night would cause sleeplessness.
So, the next day when Emily got up, she had dark circles.
When seeing Henry, she said, “I shouldn’t drink your ginger soup.”
She wouldn’t admit that it was because of Hunter.
Henry felt sorry and handed her a bowl, “You can drink it. It is brown sugar water.”
Emily felt mixed. He used to be shrewd, why he seemed to be different recently?
“Without Hunter, would you be my friend?” asked Emily while drinking brown sugar water.
Henry answered casually, “Who knows?”
Emily wasn’t satisfied with his respond and wrinkled her nose. Then, she finished the water in one
Putting down the bowl, she rolled her eyes at him.
“It is better to drink ginger soup in the morning. Why didn’t you prepare it?”
Henry thought for a moment and was regretful.
It was healthy to eat ginger in the morning and was harmful in the evening.
However, he was mistaken.
“Sorry, I will remember.”
“OK.” Emily nodded instead of mocking him, which was rare.
“How’s your stomach? If you feel uncomfortable, I can teach you at home.”
Henry’s gaze fell on her stomach, and he was too shy to ask if she was in her period.
“Aren’t you busy? What’s wrong with your company?”
“Can’t you say anything nice?”
“Can you teach me?”
Emily chuckled and shook her head, “I’m fine. I might eat the wrong food last night. I’m not in my
period, so your brown sugar water is useless to me.”
So, he spent a whole night preparing something wrong?
“Then, why do you drink it?” he complained.
“Because you cooked it for me! It’s my great honor.”
Emily got on the car with her bag and turned to Henry, “Come on, let’s go, or we’re going to be late.”
“I see,” Henry said. He felt he was fool since last night.
However, he didn’t mind it. As long as Emily was healthy and happy, he could do everything.
As soon as they left the Sharp Group, Emily’s phone rang. It was from Liam.
She asked Henry to stop, telling him Liam was waiting for her nearby.
For convenience, Emily put the report in her bag.
Liam took the report and read it carefully before saying, “Miss Gale, can you keep it as a secret for
now? If others know it, no matter whether it is true or not, you will be hurt.”
“I understand.” Liam was polite and friendly to her.
He said in a gentle manner. According to him, even though the report proved to be false, it was not her
fault lying to them.
He was a good man.
“Miss Gale, I’m gonna go. I’ll let you know as soon as the result comes out.”
“Alright, thank you.”
In fact, she didn’t want to prove she was Hunter’s cousin.
She had to nail Wendy’s lie. For it, she didn’t mind breaking up with Hunter.
“What happened?” Henry walked over and stood beside her.
Emily wanted to answer, but when she thought of Liam’s words, she stopped
She shook her head and looked at him, “I don’t want to say it.”
“Alright, let’s go.” Henry took the lead and walked towards the car, “Hurry up, we’re going to be late.”
