Virginia said, “John is a man of few words, so he’d rather keep his problems to himself. But Sophia, I can see that he really cares about you. It’s hard for a woman to find a man she loves. Will you give him a chance?”
Sophia wasn’t sure if Virginia was persuading her because the latter had learned that she had no intention of remarrying John. However, after hearing what Virginia said, she seemed to recall a vague memory and was moved by it.
After Virginia left, they kept walking around the place as Sophia said, “It’s lunchtime now. I’ll ask whether John is coming home to have lunch.”
Covering her mouth, Matilda chuckled. “Alright. You’ll call him, and I’ll keep walking.” Upon finishing her words, she turned to leave.
After Sophia made the call, John hurriedly picked it up because he was surprised that she was calling him.
Hesitating, Sophia grunted. “Do you think the Civil Affairs Bureau will be open tomorrow?”
