Then the night fell, and Casey went to Eliana’s in the old downtown.
After Casey had known how to get to Guanling, he didn’t have to return here. However, it occurred to him that the local guides always threw them in jail on the fifteenth day of every month. He didn’t have to worry about it.
Plus, he had to assure whether Freddie told him the truth. He didn’t want it to be a wild goose chase.
After couple of days of deliberation, Casey decided not to return to the J City but to stay at the S City for a while. He wouldn’t return until he was sure he’d have a chance to get into Guanling.
There were daily necessities and the old Santana in Eliana’s house which was near the outskirts, so Casey chose to stay there.
The door was open when Casey got there. Eliana and Ophelia walked out and stared at Casey nervously like two servants welcoming their master.
Ignoring their reactions, Casey went right to the staircase.
Ophelia took a deep breath and walked up to Casey, sincerely apologized, “I’m…I’m so sorry. I shouldn’t have treated you like that.”
Without saying a word, Casey walked ahead, leaving Ophelia with regret and disappointment.
Eliana just silently stood there, dare not to say a word. Ophelia had told her what had happened in the hospital. Of course she could find the unusual air of Casey as she thought of Walter’s showing up at her place.
After two steps ahead, Casey stopped and turned around, looking over his shoulder.
Hopefully, Ophelia thought Casey was about to forgive her when she found his eyes land on Eliana.
“I’ll stay another two days here. How much should I pay for you? I’ll give you later,” Casey said.
Eliana hastily answered, “It…it doesn’t matter. You’ve paid enough, and you can stay here as long as you need to. If it hadn’t been you, Walter wouldn’t have paid for his rent. I owe you.”
Casey didn’t reply as he walked upstairs.
Ophelia was like the air, ignored by Casey.
A strong disappointment coursed through Ophelia’s body as she never thought that Casey could resis her pretty face, even worse, showing no interests at all.
Then she sadly whined to Eliana, “How could he just walk away from my pretty face without saying ‘Hello’?”
Eliana sighed, “Just get off your high horse. If he was that powerful as you said, he must have seen tons of pretty girls, much more than the boys you’ve dated. Plus, you were too mean to him, you know?”
