Duke meant to annoy Rain by texting him back two hours later. The latter seethed in anger, thinking about how he should exchange the high-end wine he was about to give Duke with a low-grade one.

Rain stared at the phone number on his screen and pressed back to the home screen, feeling like he wasn't brave enough to ring it up. His enthusiasm was gone.

After hesitating for a while, he gritted his teeth together and took a deep breath. He decided to let go of his anxiety and do what he really wanted. No matter what response he got, he needed to do this.

Rain looked at the phone number again and dialed it. The ringing was endless and he was disappointed to hear no one answer it. He was just about to hang up when a feminine voice spoke at the other end of the line.

"Hello, this is Annie speaking. Who is this?" At the familiar voice, Rain was suddenly at a loss for words. What would be appropriate for him to say?

"It's me. I was told you are in S City now." His voice was low and hesitant as he answered her, trying to suppress his eagerness.

"Rain?" Annie was flustered. It seemed that Duke told Rain everything.

"Yes. Do you have a minute? I hope we can have a drink." Rain's desk was covered in tons of files. He had a lot of work to do, but the files could wait. First, he wanted to give their relationship another chance.

"Right now?" Annie didn't hesitate in turning Duke's offer down, but when it came to Rain, she couldn't help letting her feelings get to her head. She was always pulled to him.

"Would that be okay?" Rain's voice was cautious, as if he was afraid she would say no.

"Yes. Where will we meet?" Annie smiled sadly. It turned out she still had feelings for him. She hadn't forgotten him at all.

"I'll pick you up. Tell me your address." Rain exhaled deeply upon hearing her answer. She had agreed to meet him! He grinned in relief.

"That's fine. I have a car. Just tell me where we will meet." The news of his marriage had cut Annie to the quick. Her heart still stung.

"I'll text you." They were in uncertain waters and talked warily, as if one wrong word had the power to offend the other person.

"Okay, see you later." Annie hung up soon, feeling like her heart was about to come out of her chest.

Rain put the phone down and sent her an address,

u probably aren't used to it," Rain said when Annie frowned after taking a sip of the coffee.

"No, it is kind of good. I like trying something new." Annie didn't think Rain could bear to drink something so bitter. She was afraid to take a second sip. Rain seemed to know her mind and asked the waiter to serve her something else instead.

"How long do you plan to stay?" Rain asked her as he drank his coffee, his eyes guarded.

"It depends, but I am here for months." The two of them talked casually over the coffee, neither of them mentioning the pressing issue between them.

"Would you like to tell me why you left four years ago?" Rain finally asked, pinning her with his gaze. He tried to remain calm. Deep inside his heart, he was dying to know the answer to the question that had been dogging him all these years. He would not leave here before he got her explanation.

Annie stole a glance at him in panic. Her heart plummeted to her stomach when she heard him refer to their history.

"I..." Why did she leave? Was it because she knew he didn't love her? Or was it because she was afraid to get hurt again?

"You want me to say the reason out loud for you? It's because you loved another man, so you left me after you were done with me." Rain's chest tightened as he recalled the red stain on the sheets.

"Another man? What are you talking about?" Annie frowned. She had been reluctant to talk because she had been worried he would ask her about the kids. Rain knew Annie had two kids, but he didn't know they were his kids.
