Celia quickly hid behind Mia as soon as we walked to them. While Mia noticed Franz and Bern's battered faces.
"Are they trying to attack you again" Mia asked in a cynical tone. Her eyes were watching Franz and Bern who were walking behind me in shuffling steps. Their hands were on their cheeks and eyes to cover their bruises.
"They were like this when I found them," I said.
Mia folded her arms across her chest and gave them a mocking gaze. Meanwhile, even though Celia had noticed Bern and Franz's conditions, she still hid behind Mia and looked at them with a displeased gaze, especially at Bern.
"Whoever beat them, surely know how to teach someone a lesson, " Mia said sarcastically.
They shook their heads.
"Tha-That's not true. We - we fell. It's just an accident. "
Since they didn't want to say it, I didn't want to ask anymore.
"I'll take them to the clinic."
Mia frowned in objection.
"You still want to take them after they attack you You're too kind."
Actually, it was not that I wanted to take them, but I had no choice but to do it. They kept gripping my sweater like little children who were afraid of losing their parents. I had tried to release their grips a few times since it was uncomfortable but they held it again. Their eyes also continued to gaze around them in fear.
I turned around and took their hands off my sweater once again but they grabbed it again.
"I just want to take my groceries from Celia," I said in annoyance. I didn't know what traumatic experience caused them to be like this.
They released their hands.
While Mia and Celia stared at them in confusion, it seemed they were starting to understand why I had to take them.
I took my groceries from Celia.
"You do not need to be afraid. If they try to do something to you, I'll beat them up."
Even though Celia seemed to object, but she nodded.
"Just be careful."
I walked towards them.
"Come on." And they grabbed my sweater again from behind and followed me. Meanwhile, Mia and Celia tailed us.
My curiosity bothered me, even though I couldn't believe what Bern and Franz said that they didn't bother anyone but whoever could beat them was not an ordinary person. They were two skilful martial arts and this person could not only defeat them but also make them traumatized like this. But despite their bad experience, they didn't say anything and even covered it up as if it was their fault. I knew they were two wealthy 'young masters', therefore they should have nothing to be afraid of. If I didn't ask Olivia to record our fight, I would have gone to jail by now.
As soon as we arrived at the clinic, a nurse immediately greeted us as she saw the blue and purple wounds on Bern and Franz's faces.
They were silent, and did not answer his question. Finally, the nurse turned to me.
"What happened" he repeated his question.
A breath escaped my mouth and I shook my head.
"I have no clue."
"It's our fault, it has nothing to do with him. He's just helping us," said Franz, followed by a nod from Bern.
The nurse immediately noticed their fear on their faces and decided to take a closer look.
"Let's go inside." He gestured to follow him. But Bern and Franz still gripped my sweater tightly.
The nurse noticed and tried to take their grips off me, but they didn't want to let it go.
After they tugged on it for a few minutes which made me sure it would ruin my sweater, I put my groceries on a nearby table and pulled their hands in annoyance.
"Stop acting like a child and go inside," I said in an irritated tone. My eyes stared at them. Seriously, two muscular men took cover behind a thin man like me made them look like idiots. Moreover, they were martial artists and had a fighting studio, they should at least maintain their dignity.
Reluctantly, they nodded and walked inside accompanied by the nurse.
I just let out a sigh of relief, grabbed my groceries and turned around, but the nurse came back toward me in a hurry.
"I'm sorry. May I know how you found them"
"I found them in the alley near the supermarket. It looks like someone beat them up there but I don't know who. They also didn't say anything to me and looked so scared," I explained. If it weren't because of the huge trash bins, maybe I could have gotten that mysterious person's information with my vision skill. On the other hand, I could not rush into them, because I didn't know who that person was.
"Are they your friends" he asked again.
"I do know them but they're not my friends." I couldn't say we were friends because what we did every time we met was fighting. But saying I didn't know them was also impossible because from Franz and Bern's attitude everyone could conclude that they knew me.
"Thanks for your information." Finally, the nurse gave up.
"I'll excuse myself." I turned around and walked out of the clinic.
"How are they" asked Celia who was waiting outside the clinic.
I shook my head.
"The doctor is still examining them. But they should be fine." I could confirm this from the rest of their HP.
"Since we don't know who the attacker is, we better be careful. It could be that that psycho is still hanging around here." Then she turned to me.
"Especially you," she said in an emphatic tone.
"Don't worry, I can take care of myself. I'm more worried about you." My eyes looked at Celia and Mia alternately. If it was just a human, I was more afraid to prevent myself from killing him.
Mia swept her gaze around us, making sure that no suspicious people were following us. Actually, I had also checked our surroundings before.
"Let's go home."
Celia and I nodded and we moved our feet.
Almost half an hour later, we arrived in front of our house. And again, I looked at Mrs Clea's house and didn't find her.
"See you tomorrow," said Mia.
"See you tomorrow, Ms Mia," Celia and I said. We stepped into the yard and unlocked the door.
"It's really weird and ... scary," said Celia as she took off her shoes.
I put our groceries on the table beside the door and also took off my shoes.
"The important thing is you have to be careful from now. If there are suspicious people following you, just call me. I'll go straight to your place."
"Pfftt!" Celia held back her laughter.
"Do you think you can appear in an instant like that" she said in a teasing voice.
"If you are not there, I will run to the police station or Ms Mia's place and ask for help, not call you."
I grabbed her hand and looked at her with displeasure.
"You have to call me. Wherever you are I'll be right there," I said in a serious tone.
Celia looked at me in shock at my reaction. Her face began to turn red.
"Okay," she replied. Her eyes stared deeply at me as she caught my worries.
I released my hand and looked away.
"Let's go in." My hands took our groceries and my feet just took a step but suddenly a kiss that landed on my lips made me stiffen in shock. Celia smiled with a flushed face.
"What's that for" I asked as soon as I could let out my voice.
"That's my thanks for accompanying me today."
"If I accompany you longer, will I get more than this" I teased. A smirk on my lips.
Celia's face got even redder.
"Stupid ..." she muttered. Without further ado, she stepped in, leaving me.
"Hey! At least help me carry this!" I said in a half-joking tone, my hand lifting all our groceries to her.
Celia turned to me.
"Carry it by yourself!" she teased, her face flushed in embarrassment.
I chuckled and stepped in.
