Chapter 328 He is a Nice Guy
She asked and gestured with her hands.
The young couple shook their heads apologetically. ” Sorry, we have never seen her.”
Kisa took a deep breath and asked a few other people, but still nothing. She had almost come to the other end of the alley, and further ahead was a residential area, the gate of which was closed, and only residents could get in. So she was certain that Ada was not inside. This was one of the busiest turnoffs near the school. She wondered where Ada could go if she was not here. It had only been ten minutes, and Ada could not have gone far.
She told herself repeatedly that this was a school zone, where the security was tight, and that there could not have been abductions of children happening here. But she still panicked and scared, anxiously searching around, her eyes eagerly scanning the passing crowd, but still could not find Ada. She broke down and grabbed at her hair as she walked back again anxiously. Since Ada was not here, she could only look in other directions. The longer the search got, the more panicked she became. As she returned the same way, she called out Ada’s name again. She came to a stall selling ravioli and saw a crowd in front of the stall, so she thought of asking a few people when suddenly something hugged her leg. She turned around subconsciously and was overjoyed.
It was none other than Ada. Kisa could no longer hold
back her excitement. She picked Ada up in her arms with teary eyes. “Where have you been? I have been looking for you everywhere.”
Ada was also in a delirium of joy, wrapping her arms around Kisa’s neck. “I thought I was mistaken again. But it turns out that this time it is really you. You have finally come.”
Kisa was anxious as much as she was exasperated. “Who let you roam around? You scared the hell out of us, you know that?” She then took out her cell phone and
informed Gilbert and Lea so they would not have to worry any longer.
Ada pouted as she clung to Kisa’s neck. “Ma’am, I’m not roaming around. I just saw someone who looked like you.
“Like me?” Kisa was stunned, and a flash of guilt hit her. “You didn’t think that person was me, so you chased her here, did you?”
“Uh–huh!” Ada nodded vigorously. “Before I followed the person out, I thought of telling Andrew and Auntie Lea, but they were far away from me, and I was afraid that the person would go far and I wouldn’t be able to catch up. So I–I didn’t manage to tell Andrew.”
Ada spoke faster than normal. She swallowed hard and continued. “B–But when I caught up with that person, I
found out that it wasn’t you. I was so disappointed, so I went back to find Andrew and Auntie Lea. But I got lost and I couldn’t find the dessert shop. I even got knocked down,” Ada said, and showed her arm to Kisa.
Only then did Kisa notice her red and swollen arm and two bandages on the scrapes. The bandages were nicely applied and did not look like she had put them on herself. So Kisa asked, “Who put these on you?”
“A boy did it for me.”
“A boy?” Kisa was puzzled.
Ada suddenly pointed back behind her. “It is them, and that boy is a nice guy.‘
As Kisa looked in the direction she was pointing, she was shocked.
