Jack's eyes darkened, and a strange look flashed across his eyes, but soon disappeared.

He pretended to ask casually, "Where is your mother now?"

"She's in Germany. She will go to the Czech and wants to make a wish at the Prague square over there." Eric opened one of the bags he brought with him and showed it to Jack. "I told her that these things can be found online now. But she doesn't believe me."

There were two boxes of chocolate. Jack picked up a piece and put it into his mouth. "It's authentic."

"That's right. One piece is enough for you. Give the rest to my sister, okay?" Eric added childishly.

Jack chuckled and shook his head helplessly. But a second later, the corners of his mouth tightened into a straight line and his eyebrows tightly frowned.

When she came back from Uncle Xu's house, Rachel felt that Jack was a little strange. It seemed that he had lost his mind and would always take a long time to come to himself if was asked.

Confused, she took out a bowl of bone soup she made in the afternoon from the kitchen, sat down beside him and asked, "Jack, what happened? Why do you look a little distracted?"

Jack looked up at her, with an indescribable emotion in his eyes, but finally he shook his head and said, "Nothing."

Rachel frowned slightly. The look in Jack's eyes just now subconsciously made Rachel feel that what bothered him seemed to have something to do with herself. When she was about to ask more, he stood up rubbing his temples and said, "I'm a little tired. I'll go back to my room and have a rest."

She wanted to tell him something about Uncle Xu, but was interrupted by him, so she didn't say a word. Staring at his back, Rachel] replied, "Okay."

She put that bowl of soup into her stomach.

On the second day, when she arrived at the hospital and changed into the white gown, Rachel received a call from Bill, who just flew back and wanted to take Uncle Xu to the hospital to have a check and ask if she could go with him.

Rachel hesitated for a long time and couldn't say a word.

Bill explained, "Rachel, don't worry. I didn't mean anything else. You are a doctor and you know these tests well. It's more reassuring to have you accompany me. As you know, Uncle Xu is so important to me."

"If you feel embarrassed, then forget it. I can take Uncle Xu there by my own."

After hesitating for a few seconds, Rachel finally said, "It's not a big deal. I just have to handover the job on my hand, which will take about an hour. Where are you and Uncle Xu waiting for me?"

"He said he didn't want to go to your hospital. He was afraid that there would be too many acquaintances. Rachel, do you have any recommendation?"

"Then let's go to the provincial hospital, which is more authoritative."

After hanging up the phone, Rachel found a doctor to take her shift and hurried out. She drove to the provincial hospital and met the two of them.

At the door of the consulting room, U

ood at the door of the men's room. She felt every second was so long. She didn't know how long it had passed. When she saw that Bill hurriedly turned back and looked around, her heart couldn't help but jolt.

"Uncle Xu is missing." It was not a question.

Bill didn't have time to care about her shocked look. With red eyes, he grabbed every man's arms passing by and described Uncle Xu's height and appearance with his hands in front of them. "Have you seen him? He just went to the bathroom. I don't know where he is now."

"No." All of them shook their heads in confusion.

Rachel stood still for a few seconds before she came to her senses. She grabbed the old woman, who seemed a cleaner of this hospital and was walking in front of her with a broom and a duster in her hands and asked, "Excuse me, did you see an old man in the men's room just now? He is about 1.7 meters tall, wearing a grey Chinese tunic suit."

"Are you the family member of that old man?" The woman leaned against the corner of the wall with the broom in her hand, took out a piece of paper from her pocket and said, "I was cleaning the men's room before, and he happened to come in. He gave me this piece of paper and asked me to give it to the person if someone wants to see him later."

Her face suddenly became a little serious. Holding the note tightly, Rachel asked in a trembling voice, "Did you see where he went later?"

The woman shook her head and picked up the broom again. "I was busy washing my hands. How could I have time to notice him?"

Looking at the red eyed Bill, Rachel felt that the note in her hand became extremely hot. She slowly walked forward, bit her lower lip and said uneasily, "Bill, Uncle Xu just left a note for the cleaner. You have a look..."

Before she finished her words, Bill had already grabbed the note and opened it. After a few seconds of silence, he suddenly raised his head and roared, "Uncle Xu, didn't I say that you were not my burden?"
