Various Places

Ever since Mei Li had discovered his inability to stick to his schedule for his medicine, Yang now patiently waits for her calls with the pills and a glass of water on standby every minute of every day . His mother had teased him about it while his father and Yue had laughed so hard when they saw him waiting like a child for a call . He could have drunk the medicine and offer his family as witnesses, but no, he had to hear Mei Li lecture him first before drinking each tablet painlessly slow .
The Zhao family has learned to use Mei Li to threaten him, Yue had even use Mei Li to buy makeup with his card that Mei Li also likes . Mother Zhao had also made him sleep and had tucked him to bed like a petulant child when she had Mei Li's call on hold as she went to his room to convince him with Mei Li listening . Zhao Yang could only sigh and do as he was told . It was for his own good, anyway .
For the past days, Yang had spent the days on his bedroom coping up with his paperwork . Occasionally, his friends would visit him and cause chaos in his bedroom like teenagers- Dr . Zhang Li Xi and Alexandre especially . Even now as he and Chang Min were discussing crucial details to prevent possible actions that the terrorist group would do, Dr . Zhang Li Xi had jumped into Yang's bed while Alexandre was looking for adult magazines which Yang was supposed to use when he was a teenager .
"Yang, where did you buy your mattress?"
"Yang, did you throw your adult magazines?"
"Can I bring this mattress home?"
"You can't throw memories like that, Yang!"
"Let's exchange our mattress . "
"What kind of adult magazine did you use to-" "SHUT UP!" Yang shouted with veins popping out of his neck as his eyes twitched in irritation at their neverending useless questions . His hands grip his armrest, tightly .
The two men quietly sat back down, looking like a dog with a tail between its legs . Yang knew his friends were behaving unruly because he can't use his legs to kick them into place, but his legs wouldn't be useless for long . When he can walk, the next thing he would do after kissing Mei Li would be to kick their asses .
Chang Min turned to Yang and asked, "I have received another report of sightings of this man named 'David . '"
Everyone straightened up and tensed in their seats . They had almost no progress with the investigation of the car crash . David has evaded capture numerous times .
Chang Min did not wait and continued, "Hao Chen and I had picked up evidence that the women who had been murdered recently in their penthouses were all discovered to have met a foreign man with blonde hair and blue eyes . Hao Chen is currently explaining these findings to your Mother . She can report these to the authorities . "
Alexandre picked up the files in front and skimmed through every victims' crude file . Suddenly, his hands stopped when he saw a woman who had signed with their company two years ago as a model and was now slowly rising to be an actress . He shook his head, poor woman . The conversation turned serious as nobody dared to make jokes anymore . A man, who planned the car crash that kills women when he finished his stay on their penthouses, was not to be underestimated .
Hours later, everyone went downstairs to eat the food Mother Zhao had specially made for them . Hao Chen was sat beside Yue, whispering and gossiping with the youngest Zhao . When they were all eating, Yang's phone rang with a humming sound of Elvis Presley's, 'Can't help falling in love with you . ' Everyone turned to look at Yang .
Seeing it was Mei Li, Yang immediately answers, "Mei Li! How was your day?"
"CEO Zhao, this is La . If it's possible will you turn on the phone connection of your encrypted phone so we can talk . "
Zhao Yang was surprised . His heart weighed heavy with worry . Goosebumps began to spread from his inside to out; he didn't feel right about the next words . Yang and La then switched their call to a safer phone, and La had reported everything without pause .
When the call was done, Zhao Yang was faced with curious faces . Yang gulped as his eyes connected with Chang Min's . He said, reluctantly, "Mei Li was almost kidnapped . She is safe, now . "
All hell broke loose . The two women were standing up in surprise and banging their hands on the table in the process . Chang Min had turned red in anger . The rest of them were filled with worry .
Yang rolled his wheelchair out of the doors of the dining room . Mother Zhao stopped him, "Where are you going?!"
"I'm going to Milan to get her," Yang said .
"You mustn't be seen! What if people connect you with her secret identity?!" Mother Zhao shouted as Yang went out .
"I don't care!" Yang almost snarled at his mother, but managed to refrain as he continued calmly in contrast, "She needs me . Nobody can hinder me from going to her side . "
Everyone saw the true extent of his care . Yang had fallen too deep to be rescued . On his way to a private plane which he had borrowed from a business associate, Yang talked to Mei Li for a short while before embarking . Yang swore to kill the man that touched Mei Li as the painter wailed like a baby and started complaining to Yang . His heart once again melted when Mei Li had declared, "Yang, I need you . "
It was then that Yang hurried for the plane to take off . 'Don't worry, Mei Li . ' Yang thought as he made sure to count all the bodyguards with him . No obstruction can keep him from comforting his girlfriend .
