She should agree obediently and nod in agreement, but she felt quite upset somehow.
She asked, “It’s so late now. What are you busy with?” She hadn’t seen Ernest so busy a few days ago.
“It’s related to the business,” Ernest answered in a low voice, and his tone sounded quite serious.
Ernest used to tell her that he was busy with his business before, but in Florence’s ears now, she felt that those words were quite perfunctory as if he had made an excuse at random.
Uneasily, Florence frowned, her intuition telling her that Ernest seemed to be hiding something from her.
“Ernest, are you hiding something from me?”
“No, I’m not...”
“I hate it when you lie to me,” Florence interrupted his words in an extremely serious tone.
Ernest kept silent. Suddenly, they both quieted down on the phone.
Faintly, Florence could hear several people walking back and forth. They walked at in fast pace, seemingly quite busy.
She frowned, wondering what on earth Ernest was doing.
Ernest said, “Florence, please don’t overthink. I’ll go to see you after resolving the issues. That’s all. I’ve gotta go. Good night.”
After finishing his words, without waiting for Florence to answer, Ernest directly hung up the phone.
All the sounds were cut off.
Florence gaped at her phone screen, looking slightly pale.
Finally, Ernest was still hiding it from her. He didn’t tell her what he was doing, but instead, he changed the topic and hung up the phone. That meant he was lying to her when telling her that he was busy with his business.
She couldn’t help wondering what on earth he was busy with.
Why didn’t he want to tell her?
Florence felt uneasy and annoyed as if a kitten was scratching her heart.
She couldn’t sleep at all that evening.
