Lu Shijin was talking about work with Mu Ling when he received Tang Ruochu's phone call.As soon as he saw the caller ID on the phone screen, the cold, tense expression on his face instantly mellowed.Mu Ling raised his eyebrows imperceptibly. It must be the Madam.The president was like an iceberg. He would only melt in front of his wife.Lu Shijin walked towards the window before picking up the call."Shijin, when are you coming home?"He could hear Tang Ruochu's voice as soon as he picked up.Lu Shijin curled his lips. "Why? Do you miss me?""Sure, I miss you already, and I would like to have dinner with you."On the other side of the phone, Tang Ruochu could not see that Lu Shijin mellowed as soon as she said this, and his eyes were bright as stars.He looked out of the window at the darkening sky with a tender light in his eyes. He said softly, "Sure, I will be getting back very soon.""Then I'll wait for you."She hung up after saying that.Lu Shijin put down his mob
...After the meal, since it was still early, Lu Shijin took Tang Ruochu out for a walk to aid the digestion.Tang Ruochu looked at the flashing street scenes outside the car window and then turned around to look at Lu Shijin who was carefully driving. She asked doubtfully, "Where are we going? Aren't we going for a walk?"She thought they would stroll around the villa. Who knew he would drive her downtown?"To see a friend." Lu Shijin spared a glance at her. "They said we haven't met for a while, and they..."He paused purposely and then turned around to look at her. A light smile registered on the corners of his lips. "They miss you.""Miss me?" Tang Ruochu cocked one eyebrow in disbelief. "Why would they?"She knew what he meant by friends. They had grown up with Lu Shijin, but she had only met them once. The group could not be considered close to her. Why would they miss her?Lu Shijin shook his head. "I don't know why either."It was true. On the phone, Shengyao had only
Though it was only the second time that she had met the friends of Shijin, Tang Ruochu could naturally say hello to them."Shen Mu, Ling Yao, Chu Yuan, how's it going?"She had gotten their names right. Ling Yao could not help but exclaim, "Ruochu, you have quite a good memory. You've only met us once and yet you managed to remember all of our names."Tang Ruochu smiled. "If I hadn't even remembered them, I would despise myself."Hearing that, all the others laughed."Ling Yao, you think everyone has the same brain capacity as you so they need to meet a person a few times to remember their name?"Lu Shengyao mocked Ling Yao and Ling Yao turned around to kick him in the calf with dissatisfaction. "Don't you make fun of me, or I'll tell Ruochu how you wet your bed even when you were nine."It was deadly silent in the private room. Then, they burst into raucous laughter.Ling Yao looked at the others, feeling confused. "Why are you guys laughing?"Suddenly, he felt a weight on hi
Upon seeing this, Ling Yao also commented, "Yeah, it's rare for Third Brother and Sister-in-law to come. Let's have some fun.""Then what do you want to play?" Shen Mu continued, following his words.At this time, Tang Ruochu raised her hand and said, "I have a proposal in mind."Everyone turned to look at her one after another. She slowly raised the corner of her lips, a hint of cunning flickering in her eyes. "I remember last time when we played dice, the lousiest player didn't seem to confess his love, did he?"Last time? The lousiest player?Shen Mu and his gang frowned, recalling which one of them had been the lousiest player last time."Second Brother, you were the lousiest player, weren't you?" Ling Yao shifted his gaze to Shen Mu.Shen Mu shook his head. "No, Yuan seemed to be the lousiest player."Then, he turned to look at Chu Yuan.Chu Yuan shook his head as well. "No, it was not me. It must have been Shengyao."He looked up at Lu Shengyao on the opposite side."O
The result was hardly unexpected. Tang Ruochu still maintained her strength and sat firmly on the champion's throne."Hey, are you convinced now?" Tang Ruochu raised her chin slightly and looked smugly at Lu Shengyao.Lu Shengyao looked at the dice cup in his hand, disbelief written all over his face. "This is too weird. Why do I always lose?"He had lost several rounds in a row and was even more pitiful than the others. He had not won even a single round.Ling Yao sighed and put his hand on his shoulder. He patted it as he said, "Fourth Brother, please restrain your grief."After that, he, Shen Mu, and Chu Yuan exchanged looks with each other and breathed sighs of relief at the same time.They had thought that they were pretty miserable as they had lost more than they had won. Never had they expected that there would be someone who was the lousiest. It was genuinely a piece of great luck to be found from someone else's misfortune!"Shengyao, since you agreed to bet, you must ac
"Three dice with two points respectively," Tang Ruochu shouted first."Four dice with two points each." Lu Shijin was considerably calm. His pool-like deep gaze always fell on her little face, and he gave others a feeling that he was sure of winning."Five dice with five points each." Inexplicably, she was somewhat flustered and panic under his gaze. She didn't have any clue at all, so she shouted out what she had in her mind."Open!" As the sonorous and forceful sound was heard, Lu Shijin lifted the lid of the dicebox, and the points of the five dice could be seen clearly."Five consecutive points!" Shen Mu raised his eyebrows and then reached out to help open Tang Ruochu's dice cup.Three dice with two points, one dice with five points, and the last one with six points.She had lost."Let's do it again." Tang Ruochu took the lead in rolling dice.Shen Mu and Chu Yuan exchanged glances and smiled meaningfully.Their sister-in-law was going to lose badly!...To one side, Ta
"What a coincidence, my dearest girlfriend."Ying Xiaoxiao lifted her head when the familiar voice entered her ear. His handsome face entered her vision against the backdrop of dazzling lights.A playful smile hung on the corners of his mouth. His eyes were as deep as a bottomless lake, with a hint of coldness.His sudden appearance took Ying Xiaoxiao by surprise for a moment, but she quickly recomposed herself. Her beautiful eyes, a canvas under mesmerizing makeup, showed a hint of a smile. Her red lips opened slightly. "What a coincidence, my dear boyfriend."Lu Shengyao raised his brows very subtly. Then, he tightened the arm wrapped around her waist and pulled her closer to him.Their bodies were stuck tightly together, leaving no gaps.Ying Xiaoxiao furrowed her brows slightly. She was a little uncomfortable with such an intimate move, and she subconsciously wriggled her body, trying to break free from his shackles.Damn it, woman!Lu Shengyao's face turned slightly black.
Lu Shengyao pulled Ying Xiaoxiao's hand and walked over.Meanwhile, Tang Ruochu shouted, "Open!"Then, she revealed the numbers on the two dice in front of everyone.Without a doubt, Tang Ruochu had lost again."Shijin, did you cheat?" Tang Ruochu turned her head and glared at Lu Shijin, slightly squinting her beautiful eyes.Lu Shijin raised his brows with a smile hanging on the corners of his mouth. "My lady, if you lose, you must admit defeat."Tang Ruochu bit her lip and unwillingly grunted, "Okay."This was so weird! She had not won a single round. She had lost so completely!She was so embarrassed. She did not know how Shengyao would tease her if he found out about this.Luckily, he was not here.Just as she was rejoicing to herself, she turned her head inadvertently and caught a glimpse of a tall figure standing in front of the coffee table. She froze for a moment, then she looked up and found herself staring at Lu Shengyao's handsome face. He looked like he really wan
