"I don’t know."
"What?! Oi, Sei—!"
Zaki put his hand on his forehead while his other hand was on his hip. He can’t help but shook his head in disbelief. He can’t believe that this man actually agreed going out without even knowing where the hell they’re heading.
"Hey, are you trying to make this hard for me? What if she wants to bring you to the huge crowded market? Do you expect me to secure such place for you for such short period of time?" Zaki’s voice was problematic but the stone cold man just glanced at him blankly.
"Do you really think she’ll bring me to a market?"
"Huh?! How should I know? Why did you not ask her in the first place?"
"I did. But she didn’t tell me. She said she has a plan."
Zaki was speechless he could just force a laugh. He was mystified. He was already with Sei since they were kids, he knew Sei was never a fan of recklessness and uncertainty. ’That little wild dandelion, what the hell did she do to this frozen log? How did she manage to make him agree without even telling him where?’
"I’ll go ask her. If the place is dangerous... then—,"
"Dangerous, huh. Aren’t we the dangerous one?"
"Oi! You’re being way too relaxed. Besides, didn’t you said we’ll stay low-key for the time being?"
"Do you think anyone will expect me to even set my foot in such place? Besides, aren’t you here?"
Sei stared at him with his same blank yet absolute gaze. Making Zaki unconsciously messed his own brown hair. He then let go a deep breath, as if he was forced to raise his white flag then stared back at the frozen stone across him.
"I got it, I got it." Zaki started moving towards the door still looking a bit worried, however, the moment he closed his eyes for a moment, an evil smile carved in his face. As if he was a topnotch actor who suddenly switched from a worrywart young man to a mischievous evilest villain in existence. "I’ll go ask her for details," he said before shutting the door.
"Young Miss, Mr Chen has arrived," whispered by the old butler to the sweaty young lady who was amazingly focused on a colorful maple tree bonsai. And as soon as she heard him she stood right away and looked at the old man.
"Where is he?"
"At the sofa."
"Thank you," she said then ran away towards the mansion as fast as she could. As if she was a kid who was excited to see her parent who just came home from their long vacation.
A few moments later, Davi finally saw the man she was waiting for. During those five days since she signed the contract that day, Mr. Chen was the one who stayed with her. He was the one who took care of everything in the hospital and at those times Davi could only talk to him. That’s why she was sure that of all the people around her at the moment, Mr. Chen was the easiest for her to approach.
"Mr. Chen, can we talk?"
The disguised Zaki was surprised. He didn’t expect that Davi wants to talk to him as well.
"Of course, of course. I do have something to tell you too."
Davi seemed glad when Zaki agreed right away. However, she kept on glancing up the stairs and she’s visibly unsure whether to talk or not.
"What is it?" Zaki asked even though it was obvious that Davi was being warry that Sei might hear her.
"Uhh... let’s go talk to the garden." She said as she gave him an awkward but pleasant smile making the man nod at her in an instant.
Zaki quietly followed her. And as they walked, he was looking around and he was somehow surprised with the little changes he saw in the once dull garden.
"You did all this?" he asked while his eyes were glued to the little colorful trees beautifully arranged.
"Uhh. The maids helped me," she replied making the man nod as if telling her he was pleased. "Uhm Mr. Chen... that... I was planning to take him out for a date tomorrow."
Davi stepped closer to him then whispered something on him. And once he heard what she said, Zaki’s expression instantly turned inexplicable. He looks like he was stunned for a moment and doesn’t really know how to react, but just like a pro, he nodded at her right away as if telling her that she understood what she wanted to happen.
"So what’s the plan? I’m sorry but I need to know. It’s for security purposes. Don’t worry, I won’t tell him anything," Zaki’s supportive tone made Davi felt relieved, reflecting a pleasing smile across her beautiful face.
