Rachel Ruan gasped and ran to the side of the swimming pool. Suddenly, a figure rose up and broke the surface of the water, making a great splash. It was the same tall and handsome man that she had noticed before. He was holding the little girl in one arm and swimming towards the side of the pool.

Rachel heaved a sigh of relief. She realized that her legs were still trembling with fear. Every time she read about a child dying in a drowning accident, her heart went out to them.

Now that she'd seen a child in danger with her own eyes, she was frightened beyond belief. It was a terrible feeling. Fortunately, the child was safe now.

"Oh, my god! My daughter! John, why weren't you taking care of your younger sister?" A woman had just come out of the washroom while the girl was being rescued from the pool. Distressed, she began yelling at a ten-year old boy.

"I...I was having fun. I didn't notice where sister was, " the boy stammered as he kept his head down. He was also shaken by what had happened.

Thankfully, the little girl had been rescued in time.

The rescuer had already placed the girl on the ground near the side of the pool. He was performing chest compressions on her. After a few seconds, the girl coughed and spat out some water. As soon as she opened her eyes, she cried, "Mom! Mom, please don't blame brother. It's my fault. I shouldn't have gone into the pool by myself."

The woman ran up to her daughter and hugged her. Crying, she kissed the girl's forehead and said, "May, are you all right? You frightened me so much, you know that?"

"I'm all right, mom. I'm fine, " May replied weakly.

Finally satisfied that her daughter wasn't in danger anymore, the woman heaved a sigh of relief. She held her daughter even tighter and turned to the man who had saved her. "Thank you so much! I don't even want to imagine what would've happened if you hadn't been there. We're very grateful to you."

She then shouted at the boy behind her, "John, follow me. We are going back home!" Carrying her daughter in her arms, the woman hastily left the swimming pool with her son in tow.

The onlookers around them also drifted away after they left, all except Rachel. She looked curiously at the man who'd been left alone there. No one had even bothered to hand a towel to this hero who had just saved a life.

Not only was he good-looking, he also had a very kind heart.

The towel hanger on the side caught Rachel's eyes. She walked up to it and grabbed one of the clean towels before approaching the man.

"Like the old saying goes, a hero is always alone. You saved her daughter, but all she did

lothes didn't go unnoticed by him either.

"Okay, please give it a try." Rachel wouldn't be able to contact Hiram now, so she figured she'd better try to repair her phone as soon as possible.

Albert began walking away with her phone. Rachel shrugged and stood up, and headed towards the towel hanger. She wanted to dry off with a clean towel first.

Just when she reached the towel hanger, a pretty woman dressed in a blue uniform came over holding a white bathrobe in her hands.

"Hello, miss. A gentleman requested that I give you this lady's bathrobe. Please change into it and give your wet clothes to me. I will dry them for you, " she said courteously.

"Okay, thank you!"

Rachel took the bathrobe from her hands and nodded. Without even a doubt, she knew that it was Albert who'd asked the waitress to bring her the bathrobe.

She changed into the bathrobe and waited for Albert there. Moments later, Albert came back with her phone. He looked at Rachel sheepishly and said, "Your phone is fixed, but someone called you just now. I was only trying to see if your phone was okay, but I answered the call by accident. The man on the other line asked where you were, and I told him that you were changing your clothes.

I don't know if I've said something that will mess things up for you. I'm so sorry."

Rachel took her phone and opened up her call log. She raised her eyebrows when she saw Hiram's name.

"It doesn't matter. It's just a friend of mine. I think my clothes would be dry now. I should get going. Bye-bye!" Rachel said abruptly before quickly striding towards the dressing room.

She changed back into her own clothes and hurried to the hall. When she arrived there, she saw Hiram already seated and waiting for her.
