Starlight Has No Past
Chapter 39 Part 2
Because of the doll, Ye Qiao spent a lot of time in the morning assuring Zhou Tingsheng that there was no harm from the doll as well as the safety of the fire scene. In the end, she was able to leave the house by letting Zhou Tingsheng go on location to watch her film the scene. Zhou Tingsheng would go pick up Ophelia and Desa and bring them home first then go to the film location to keep Ye Qiao company.
Ye Qiao found it all unnecessary, but the uneasiness had lingered in Zhou Tingsheng’s mind.
He brought the pets home and fed them some water, then left the apartment in a hurry with his car keys. Before he left, he glanced at the trash can and the bloody doll gave him chills down his spine. Thinking back, he regretted that he didn’t tell her about the first doll, he could’ve at least filed a police report back then. Recalling the incident still gave him the chill, what if anything had happened to Ye Qiao between then and now…...A lot of memories of the past came to his mind, before he shut it out of his mind.
His cell phone rang as he was driving at a high speed.
He picked up the call, Ruan Feiyan’s voice came from the other end: “Tingsheng Gege, have you brought Small White and Small Black back?” When Zhou Tingsheng left Ophelia and Desa with her, he was in such a rush that he didn’t even tell her the names of the two pets. She took it upon herself to name them by the colors of their coats.
Zhou Tingsheng fixed his eyes on the traffic: “En.”
The young girl complained in her sweet voice: “You left in such a hurry that I didn’t have time to give you the new toys I’ve bought for them. I have no use for them here. Come over sometime so I can give them to you?”
Zhou Tingsheng just made a turn and indifferently answered: “Ok.”
Ruan Feiyan unhappily said: “Can’t you speak more than one word?”
“You can’t talk while driving? You haven’t come to see me for quite a while now. Last week, my homeroom teacher wanted to talk to my guardian but you didn’t even answer the phone.”
Zhou Tingsheng heard something that caught his attention: “Why does your homeroom teacher want to talk to your guardian again?”
Ruan Feiyan stammered: “It’s nothing…...That teacher is always annoying, you know that……”
Zhou Tingsheng frowned and lowered his voice: “I’ll call you tonight.”
The call was abruptly cut off, Ruan Feiyan angrily tossed the phone. The phone broke in half on the corner of a molded wall.
The young man next to her looked at the broken pieces of phone and frivolously snickered: “You’ve broken two cell phones this month. So money is nothing to you? If you’re so rich, why are you still living in such a place.”
Ruan Feiyan stared at him: “What do you know? This is the place I lived when I was little. My mom bought the house with the money she earned. Why can’t I live here?”
The man laid down on her damp blanket and laughed flippantly: “I don’t understand. Isn’t this Zhou person the one who caused the death of your mother. Why are you acting like the secret lover that he kept. I mean, he hasn’t even touched you? He gives you so much money each year, who knows, maybe he intends to have you after you grow up?”
Ruan Feiyan jumped up in a flash and ordered him with a face as cold as frost: “Get up!”
The young man, still lying comfortably on the blanket, squinted at her: “I can’t say it? But he’s miscalculated…...You’re nothing but a licentious girl.”
“Go to hell, get up!”
