"Never..." His voice suddenly became very low. He picked up the note again and looked at it word by word. The blue veins on the back of his hand popped out, which looked a little shocking.

"I'm sorry."

A mixed feeling of shame, guilt and regret overwhelmed Rachel like a tide. "If it weren't for me... Maybe such a thing wouldn't have happened."

After a long silence, Bill seemed to have calmed himself down. Without looking at her, he said indifferently, "It's nothing to do with you."

When he walked to the gate of the hospital, he threw the note on the ground. Rachel bent down and picked it up. Uncle Xu's handwriting was strong and powerful. "Bill, in fact, I have reached the age of retirement. I have been worried about you, so I haven't mentioned it. Now I can take this opportunity to retire. Take good care of yourself. Don't worry about me. I'm going to take advantage of the fact that I'm still able to move these two years to go to places I have always wanted to go. Maybe I can live a more free and unrestrained life than now.

But you should pay more attention to your health. You can find someone else. If you want me to come back early, you should get married as soon as possible. At that time, I will definitely come back for your wedding."

Uncle Xu was well prepared this note, which was not written just now but had been written before and taken with him all the time. It seemed that he did not really want to come to the hospital for examination. He just found an opportunity to leave.

How could he be so cruel to leave? How about Bill?

After putting the note back into her pocket, Rachel walked out of the hospital. Seeing that Bill was waiting for her in the car, his face returned to normal and said indifferently, "Rachel, get in the car. I'll drive you home."

Rachel said, "No, thanks. I just drove here by myself."

Seeing the worry and uneasiness in her eyes, Bill forced a smile and turned to comfort her, "I'm fine. Don't worry. I will keep calling Uncle Xu."

"Okay."

Rachel nodded and told him to be careful on the road.

But she didn't go to the parking lot. Instead, she turned around and went back to the hospital. She knocked on the door of the monitoring room and politely asked, "Hello, my family is missing. Can you get the surveillance video for me?"

Although everything was planned by Uncle Xu, Rachel couldn't help wondering if he wouldn't have had the chance to leave if she hadn't persuaded Bill to go to the bathroom with him.

More or less, it had something to do with herself.

The security guard looked at her up and down and said directly, "No, if you want to check CCTV, you have to get the instructions from the superior. If everyone else comes here to check the video like you, do we still have to go to work here? Here's not the market."

Knowing that what he said was reasonable, Rachel didn't retort even if his tone was not good. After all, she was too anxious.

Seeing that she didn't make a fuss like those people, the security guard's voice softened. "Miss, don't worry. Look for him everywhere. If you still can'

She couldn't guess.

At this time, the phone on the passenger seat rang. When Rachel saw the name of Jack, she hesitated for a few seconds, raised the corners of her mouth, and said as if nothing had happened, "I'm coming back."

As usual, Jack left the company half an hour earlier than usual and drove to the hospital. When he arrived at the hospital, it was just the time for Rachel to get off work. He waited for a while, but didn't see her and her phone couldn't be contacted. He thought she was busy, but when he went in and asked others, he found that she had already asked for leave in this morning.

But he couldn't figure out what happened, even Celia, who had the best relationship with her, didn't know where she was.

At this time, he looked at Rachel who forced a smile and entered the room. He frowned slightly, walked up to her and took her bag. He asked, "You seem to be very tired. What did you do today?"

Seeing his inquiring eyes, Rachel rolled her tongue for two times and finally shook her head. "One of my classmate had an accident, so I went to see him."

Biting her lower lip, Rachel didn't know how to tell him about the matter of Bill and Uncle Xu.

Jack had always been unfriendly to Bill. She was afraid that they would have a fight if she told him.

So she chose to hide it.

Turning her stiff neck, she smiled and said, "I'm going to take a shower."

Jack nodded and looked at her back. His black eyes were full of confusion. There was an indescribable strangeness in Rachel this day.

He thought that maybe Rachel was just too tired that she didn't want to say anything more. But in the next two days, she went out early and came back late. Her mood was getting lower and lower day by day. She always shook her head and said nothing when he asked her anything.

This made Jack suspicious.

On this day, as soon as Jack finished the meeting, his mobile phone rang. It was Henry's call. He said that they would have dinner together, and by the way, they would talk about the cooperation that Jack had helped him reach.
