After I agreed, Ming seemed to want to say something. I heard his other cell phone ring.
"Wait a minute. I have to answer the phone." Ming didn't hang up. I heard him answer the phone and say, "I'll be right there."
Then he picked up the phone and said, "I'm sorry. There's an emergency in the hospital. I have to go."
"OK, you can go."
I hung up and soon heard Ming open the door.
I opened the door, too. He was dressed and waiting for the elevator.
He smiled when he saw me. He came up and hugged me. "Wait for me to come back. Remember the birthday present you promised me."
"OK." I nodded and hugged him. "I'll wait for you to come back."
Although Ming wanted me to accompany him for one day, I still thought I had to prepare a birthday present for him.
The next morning, Ming didn't seem to come back. I sent Lester by myself and went shopping.
The clerk at the counter recommended me countless gifts in the morning, but I didn't like them very much.
Ming was not a business person, so ties and cufflinks were not suitable for him.
But I didn't know what else to send him.
When I was about to find a place for lunch, my cell phone rang.
It was my personal cell phone.
And it was Linda!
I answered the phone at once.
She asked me out for lunch. We chose a western restaurant not far from both of us.
By the time I arrived, she had arrived.
Today Linda was wearing a well cut cape and skirt and high heels.
Five years ago her hair was black, long and straight, but now it was brown and curly.
When Linda saw me, she said, "I didn't expect Becky, the famous designer, to be you."
I was a little diffident. "My master is famous, not me."
In recent years, Murray no longer designed. I did design and he just taught me.
But he gave me all my contacts and resources.
I felt like I had been living in his shadow.
Linda smiled and said, "it's lucky to have a good master."
"Where have you been these years? You quit when you came back from the resort. I always wanted to contact you." I asked Linda.
After that, we talked about what happened to us in recent years.
After Linda resigned, she went to study abroad. There she met her present husband. It wasn't long before they got married and had children.
Her husband returned to the United States because of his work, so she came back.
She came back and took only one job.
She designed Tang Time.
I remember going to Tang Time that day. Jonas promised to give me information about the designer, but he didn't.
But I met Linda first.
Linda told me that in order to develop in York, she planned to take part in a design competition at the end of the year and gave me the information.
Seeing this design competition, I was also very excited.
After a chat, we decided to take part together.
Linda and I seemed to have a lot to talk about.
It was already four o'clock when I got back to my senses.
She and I were going to pick up our children. Besides, I hadn't bought a gift for Ming.
Linda knew I was going to buy Ming a present. She suggested, "I think you can think about stationery. Doctors use it."
Her words reminded me.
Linda took me to a famous stationery store. All stationery in it could be engraved with names.
I chose an ink blue pen.
I had the owner engrave and pack it.
Then I said goodbye to Linda and went to pick up Lester.
Tomorrow was Ming's birthday.
I was afraid Lester would break Ming's birthday present. I put it in a very high place.
In the evening, I called Ming when I started cooking.
His cell phone had been off.
I hadn't seen him in nearly 24 hours.
It was not long, but after I came to York, Ming would contact me no matter how busy he was and accompany me to dinner.
He seldom did that!
I couldn't help feeling uneasy.
I cooked and had dinner with Lester. During this time, I had been calling Ming.
But every time the result was the same.
I heard the cold system sound, "the phone you dialed is off..."
I had a bad feeling. Was something wrong with Ming?
But Lester was at home. I couldn't leave Lester alone, and I couldn't take him to the hospital.
I could only endure.
I said to Lester before he fell asleep, "Lester, I'm going out to find Uncle Jessop. I'll be back soon, so be obedient, you know?"
Lester was very obedient and nodded.
When I was sure he was asleep, I put on my clothes and went out.
I took a taxi to the main entrance of the Sunshine Hospital. I found a lot of police cars parked outside the hospital!
I stood outside the yard and saw the hospital gate blocked!
When I saw this scene, there were countless guesses in my mind.
Was there a murder here!
I rushed to the door and tried to get in. A policeman came directly to stop me. "I'm sorry. No one can enter."
"What happened? I am the fiancee of the president of this hospital!"
It was the first time I had ever told someone about my identity.
The policeman looked at me and hesitated before he said, "no, even if you are a family member, you can't enter."
"Then can you tell me what happened in the hospital?"
It didn't matter if I couldn't go in. I had to know what happened and whether Ming was OK!
At this time, I had made the worst plan in my mind.
After all, Ming's cell phone had been off for so long.
The policeman looked at me and hesitated and said, "wait a minute. I'll report."
Then he took out his cell phone and made a phone call.
He hung up and asked me, "how can you prove your identity?"
I was stunned by the policeman's words.
How could I prove that I was Ming's fiancee?
The policeman seemed to see that I couldn't prove it. He said, "I'm sorry. You can't prove your relationship with the dean. I can't tell you anything."
"How can I prove that I am his girlfriend!"
I was very worried.
"I'm sorry. This is the rule. Don't embarrass me." With that, the policeman turned and wanted to leave.
He had his back to me. Without hesitation, I crossed the cordon and rushed straight to the hospital!
