Andrew didn't know how long he had been standing downstairs before he walked to the convenience store in the community and bought a bottle of hard liquor.

He had never drunk such hard liquor before. He hesitated when he took it, but he thought that this kind of liquor suited his mood now. After paying the bill, he sat on a cold chair in the garden and drank it slowly.

The alcohol was so strong that it seemed to be burning in his stomach.

He hadn't drunk for a long time, and his body didn't allow him to do so. He was always a serious and sober man and didn't like to get drunk. He always maintained a clear mind, but he didn't know that he was more tired than before.

He drank up a bottle of liquor, but he was not drunk. He just felt his heart hurt... ...

In fact, he had been used to the pain. The night wind was cold and the moon was beautiful. He didn't know how long he had been sitting. Maybe one hour, or two hours, he felt a little drunk, but it was fine.

It was time for him to go home. After all, it was his wedding night.

He had worked hard for so long. He appeared in Stacie's life one point one, becoming a necessary part of her life. He should be happy about it, shouldn't he?

He didn't want to take the elevator tonight. Instead, he chose to climb the stairs directly and walked up slowly, as if he was counting his steps.

On the stairs of more than ten floors, he was sweating and a little hot. When he loosened the buttons, he felt hot and restless, not his body, but his heart.

There was a fire burning in the bottom of his heart, and it was getting stronger and stronger, as if it was about to burn his whole body into ashes. When he stopped at the door of the room, he did not enter, but walked to the window. A cold wind blew in, making him feel a little more comfortable.

The summer in Li City was always very hot. Without air conditioner, people would sweat a lot. His clothes and temples were wet with sweat. His black hair was plastered to his forehead, making him elegant, cold and beautiful. His amber-colored eyes were even more beautiful than the clear sky. In the quiet night, they were like a painting on the canvas, like the sunset behind the clouds in all its glory.

He took a light breath, and the emotions in his eyes gradually suppressed until they were held back in his heart.

When he completely calmed down, he took out the key and opened the door. There was a light in the living room, faintly glowing. It seemed that his wife had specially left a light for her newly married husband.

He stared at the light for a long time. He didn't change his slippers and walk towards the bedroom until he staggered along the wall.

Stacie's head was a bit of muddled. She had never expected that Allen would find her. But the past was in the pass, so she didn't think too much. After taking a shower, she sat on the sofa in the master bedroom, turned on the iPad and played games.

But today, she was in a bad mood and lost twice in a row.

She threw the iPad aside and wanted to go to bed, but she was worried whether the two people downstairs had fought or not. When she looked down from the window, there were no two people confronting each other downstairs. She guessed that they had left.

She rubbed her hair and told herself not to think about it. She climbed into the bed and toss and turn for a while. Then she sat up again and felt that she couldn't fall asleep. During this period of time, she was lying on the bed every day, which was almost a torment to her.

She wanted to call Amy, but a man answered the phone. Stacie wanted to ask who it was, but the man hung up on her. When she called again, Amy's phone was powered off.

She w

as a little surprised. It was so late. Was Amy still working in the company?

Thinking of Amy's tiredness, Stacie smiled bitterly. It must be so. Amy had been busy recently, and she had lost a lot of weight. Stacie was at a loose end and wanted to find something to do, otherwise she would go crazy if she kept thinking about that matter.

A woman, whether she was a strong woman in her career or an ordinary person, should have her own interests instead of paying all her attention to a man.

Stacie began to write resume on the computer. When she was about to send it out, her phone suddenly rang...

She took the phone and answered it without checking the caller ID. She still focused on the phone and clicked on the e-mail. When she was about to send it, she heard a voice that sounded drunk, "Stacie, it's me."

"Why do you have my phone number?" This man didn't give up, did he? Stacie raised her eyebrows and said coldly.

Allen said slowly and stubbornly after getting drunk. "I just asked Evelyn for your number. Stacie, don't blame her. She knows that you have lived a hard life in the past few years. She hopes that I can make you happy. Come out. Let's talk, okay?"

"Allen, it's all over." Stacie sighed and said in the same tone, but her eyes seemed to be covered with a faint layer of tears. She did not dare to blink her eyes hard, fearing that tears would fall.

"Stacie, I won't admit it. You don't know how much I miss you in the past five years. I know you still love me. Why don't you give me a chance? Do you really like Andrew?" Allen said in a hurry and his voice pricked her ear.

How could she like Andrew? No, she told herself more than once. "No matter who I like now, I don't love you anymore."

"Stacie, I'll wait for you in the club." The man said in a rascal voice after getting drunk.

"What if I don't come?"

"Stacie, if you don't come, I'll wait here all the time!" After saying that, he hung up the phone and drank up the wine in front of him. The wine was really bitter, like his heart.

The phone rang for a long time before Stacie came to her senses. The moonlight outside the window flooded in, and lightly fell all over the ground. The light was as beautiful as stars and broken jade scattering on the floor. She lowered her head and stared at it for a long time.

After a long time, the sound of wind gently patted the window. She raised her head, and the looks in her eyes gradually became firm. No matter what Allen said, she couldn't go to see him tonight, and she shouldn't go either.

She shouldn't have continued to entangle with him. It was over five years ago. There was no need to look back now.

It was better for him to wait for her for one night than for the rest of his life.

She and Andrew were husband and wife.

She stood up and was about to warm up a glass of milk. When she opened the bedroom door, she saw the man. The warm wall lamp was on, shrouding the man's body as if he was coated with a layer of gold, but the coldness on his body could not be restrained.

He didn't know how long he had stood here. He leaned against the wall, and his amber-colored eyes slowly turned around. He seemed to smile, but his eyes were covered with cold snow. She couldn't see clearly his eyes, nor his heart.

He was drunk. A strong smell of alcohol came to her face, and his lips were pale and gray, like a withered flower, falling on the ground silently and lifelessly. Looking at Andrew's haggard face, she was shocked for no reason. "You're back?"

She calmed down and asked as usual, as if nothing had happened tonight. But he sneered, with a cold glint in his eyes. That smile, of course, was charming as ever. "Are you going out?"
