Chapter 1785: Wait for Me at the Exit
“You don’t believe in my speed at passing the levels?” Han Zhuoling asked her.
“Of course I believe in you. But that doesn’t mean I can waste your time.”
“I never minded whether I lost or win. It’s fine even if I lose,” Han Zhuoling said. “But if you go back and walk the path that we came by again, you will be scared. The path before the Gate to Earth is different from now. Even if you know it’s fake and it’s all arranged by the production team, you will still feel terrified. From the start, when I came to find you, it was precisely because I was worried you would be scared. How can I let you go back and experience that again?”
Shi Xiaoya was stunned by his words and stared at him in a daze like a fool.
Her heart felt as if it had been knocked hard, and it softened so much that she could not speak a word.
Looking at Han Zhuoling, she started blushing.
This man before her, how was he so good?
He seemed cold, but his thoughts were so attentive, always considering everything for her.
“Be good and listen.” Han Zhuoling raised his hand and gently pressed on the top of her head, rubbing it twice.
His actions, and his words, were all filmed on camera.
The director thought to himself, “Oh my goodness. Han Zhuoling was not intending to hide at all. He acted like that right in front of the camera and did not give a damn at all! Who knows if we can air it when the time comes?”
“If you are scared that I will lose because of this, then don’t worry. I promise you, I will definitely be the second to pass the levels. The first will be Shi Xiaoya.”
Shi Xiaoya shook her head. “Since you don’t care about winning or losing, I definitely don’t care either. I just feel that you are clearly the best one here, yet you keep getting delayed because of me—”
“I understand.” Han Zhuoling understood what she meant.
Although he did not care about winning or losing, he did have the capability.
She was not worried that he would lose, she just did not want to see him lose unjustly.
“After you pass the level, just wait for me there until I come out again, then I will go together with you.” Han Zhuoling promised, “I can assure you that if you are the first to pass the levels, I will be the second.”
Only then did Shi Xiaoya nod her head.
Han Zhuoling gave a small smile and held her hand, bringing her out with him.
“Quick film it! Film it!” the director reminded the videographer brother in a hushed voice.
“This… Even if we film this, we probably won’t dare to air it, right?” Though the videographer said that, he still obediently turned the camera towards the pair.
“Whether we can air it or not, we still have to discuss with Young Master Ling. But no matter whether we can air it or not, let’s film it first and talk later,” the director said.
The two of them followed them out.
Another gatekeeper had already changed into a modern suit and was waiting by the door.
“Have the two of you found your answers?” the gatekeeper asked.
“Yes.” Han Zhuoling passed the painting in Shi Xiaoya’s hand over to the man and said, “This is her answer.”
Even if Shi Xiaoya wanted to change her mind at the last minute, it would not be possible now.
Han Zhuoling’s actions were really too fast.
The gatekeeper took the painting, opened it to look, and then placed it on the table beside him.
He then took the painting Han Zhuoling passed to him and said, “This lady’s painting is the right answer. The person with the wrong answer has to return to the fork, choose the Gate to Heaven, and reattempt the challenge.”
Han Zhuoling nodded and was about to leave when Shi Xiaoya clutched his sleeve.
“Wait for me at the exit,” Han Zhuoling said.
“Okay.” Shi Xiaoya thought about it and said, “I also don’t care about being in first place, so don’t rush. Your safety is the first priority.”
“Okay.” Han Zhuoling gave her a smile and lowered his lids, glancing at her hand that was clutching his shirt sleeve.
Shi Xiaoya quickly let go.
