His face was initially filled with delight. Since she had mentioned that area, he frowned and told Han Muzi, “That sea area is very dangerous. People like me around here don’t usually go there. Not only is the turbulence there strong, the shore is also extremely steep. If a person falls down into that water, even if he is a good swimmer, he may not be able to come up to land.”
Han Muzi was rendered speechless. She bit on her frozen lips while her trembling hands held on to her knees. She then murmured, “Mister, then… what would happen there after a storm? Would it be even more dangerous?”
The man nodded. “That’s for sure.” After that, he suddenly thought of something. “Why is a girl like you wandering out here in the middle of the night? And why do you want to go to that place?” He finally noticed as he looked into his rearview mirror and saw Han Muzi’s purplish face, which was devoid of any blood. He choked at the sight of her and said, “I don’t think you should be going near that area. Why don’t I send you to the nearest hotel? Look at you. I’m afraid you can’t hold on much longer freezing like that.”
Han Muzi shook her head and replied to him, “No, I insist on going there.”
The man remained silent. What was wrong with this lady? He then turned his head back to observe her and realized that there was something wrong with her. Putting aside where she headed to, she wore a set of pyjamas, as though she just ran out in the middle of the night. He gave it a thought and coughed softly. “Alright. The customer is always right. I will do my best to help you.”
“Thank you.” After she thanked him, Han Muzi lowered her head and could not help but close her eyes since she was really tired. She did not know if it was because of the rain or not, but her eyelids became heavier as her vision blurred. It felt like centuries that she had been in the car and it finally stopped.
