The Love that Never Really Dies Chapter 386
She grumbled while staring at Lance, but he ignored her completely.
With a gloomy look on his face and both hands in the pocket of his blue hoodie, he kicked open the door behind her and stepped inside.
I swear, this guy’s rudeness knows no bounds!
Having no other choice, she could only stand by the door and wait for Willow.
“What are you doing standing there like that?”
“I’m waiting for Willow! She’s right downstairs!” Sasha shouted into the room in response, only to have Lance come back and drag her by the back of her shirt collar.
“Ah! Hey! What are you doing? Let go!”
“Did you get so scared that you’ve lost your mind? There’s no way Willow would come to a place like this!”
Lance was so angry that his veins were bulging out of his neck as he dragged her inside. Damn it, I wish I could just pack her into a bag and send her back to Moranta! How can she just believe everything people tell her? Is she an idiot or what?
Sasha continued to struggle. “You’re the crazy one! The lady at the front desk called me and said a woman named Willow had come to see me!”
“Then why didn’t Willow call you on your phone instead? Did you block her or what? Why would she have to call the hotel’s front desk just to see you?”
Sasha stared blankly at Lance, unable to say a single word in response.
He’s right! Willow could’ve just called me on my phone, so why didn’t she? Why would she go through the trouble of calling the front desk instead?
She felt a shiver down her spine as the sudden realization dawned upon her.
“I-If that’s not Willow, then… w-who is it?”
Noticing the pale look on Sasha’s face, Lance continued dragging her to the dinner table as he said, “How the hell would I know? Maybe it’s one of those organ-trafficking syndicates that target ignorant girls like you! They lure you downstairs by pretending to be a friend or family member, then knock you unconscious and harvest your organs after kidnapping you!”
Sasha felt goosebumps all over instantly upon hearing that.
“Oh, but I haven’t even gotten to the worst part! Human traffickers could sell you to…”
“Shut up! Shut up! How dare you scare your cousin like this? I’ll slap you to death if you don’t stop this nonsense right now!”
Sasha pounced on him angrily and clamped his mouth shut with her hands to stop him from going any further.
A faint smile formed on Lance’s face as he stared at Sasha who got so scared that she literally climbed on top of him.
In the face of danger, Sasha couldn’t care less about her ego. She locked and barricaded the room door with a few chairs before returning to the bedroom shakily.
“Hey, Lennie… We have to get the hell out of here first thing in the morning, okay?” Sasha said as she lay down in bed.
Lance, who was lying on the couch in the corner, mumbled in agreement, “Yeah…”
I’d get in trouble too if I don’t head back…
The night went by peacefully, and Lance was already packing their bags by the time Sasha woke up the next morning.
There was even a simple breakfast prepared and laid out on the table.
“Morning, Lennie… Y-You’re packing up? Did you already purchase the flight tickets?”
I knew this would be the first thing she’d think about upon waking up…
Lance shot her a quick glance while folding her clothes and said, “Yeah, the flight is at nine. You should be able to make it in time if you go through your morning routine quickly.”
Sasha sprung out of bed immediately after hearing that and ran straight into the bathroom.
The two of them left for the airport about half an hour later.
To Sasha’s surprise, Lance only handed her one ticket for herself.
“Here, this is your ticket. Make sure you don’t lose it.”
“Huh? What about yours? Give me your ticket too! That way, I can get us both checked in at the same time when we reach the airport,” Sasha said.
Her idea was to have one person watch over the baggage while the other one did the check-in at the counter.
However, she never saw Lance again after boarding the flight as the tickets he managed to book were for different cabins each, one of them being a first-class seat while the other an economy class seat.
Lance quickly offered to take the economy class seat, so Sasha had no choice but to remain in the first-class cabin.
What the hell?
Sasha wasn’t all too pleased about it. She wanted to swap her ticket out with someone from the economy class cabin so she could sit next to Lance, but he refused.
“You’re injured, so you should stay here in the first-class cabin where it’s more comfortable. Remember to avoid moving around too much, all right? You need to take good care of yourself now that I’m not by your side,” he said after sending her to her seat in the first-class cabin.
