Lu Rongyan only thought that he was finding it troublesome so she quickly added, “Can I just take up one day of your time? You just have to go there, stay one night, and you can go back the day after. There’s no need to stay with me for the whole week! Initially, I didn’t need you to come with me, but my parents… feel that our marriage was just too hasty, and they’ve never even met you before. So, I was thinking that if you could come with me, at least they would feel a little more at ease…” “This is the reason you want me to accompany you home?” Lu Anyan’s mellow expression earlier became cold again, the eyes staring at Lu Rongyan became more distant.”Yeah.” Lu Rongyan nodded. “Otherwise, I really wouldn’t want to trouble you! Of course, if you have any situations in the future that you need me to accommodate you, I will do my best to help you. So, is it okay?” So she was just trying to negotiate a deal with him, was that all? Lu Anyan looked at her indifferently. “I have two
‘Knock knock knock!’ A few dull knocks could be heard from the outside, while it was masked by the noisy sound of the rain, Lu Rongyan could finally hear it clearly this time. She abruptly snapped awake and was shocked. “Are you outside?” How could that be? If it really was the case, that would be too scary and too unimaginable! “Open the door!” Lu Anyan’s voice sounded impatient over the phone as he urged Lu Rongyan. Lu Rongyan instantly regained her senses. “You- wait a moment! I’ll open the door for you right now!” She hastily lifted her blanket, wore the plush slippers on the floor, and ran outside to the entrance in the living room. The rain was pouring down even harder outside, tapping and hitting the windows while the cold wind whistled as it blew. The sounds were very creepy. Lu Rongyan put down the lock of the entrance and exerted a lot of strength to pull open the two heavy wooden doors. When she saw Lu Anyan standing outside, Lu Rongyan still could not
Millions? A large house? These rumors were just getting more and more absurd! She had never even heard any of this before, god knows where these gossiping neighbors had heard it from. She was a little dumbstruck. “Pa!” “... Anyan.” “It’s time for breakfast!” When Lu Rongyan called him ‘Anyan’, she still felt a little awkward. At the sound of her voice, the old man and youth stopped moving. In the morning light of the first spring, Lu Anyan was walking toward her with a backlit glow. He was only wearing her father’s very loose white-colored T-shirt with long pants but yet, he looked so youthful in them. They gave him a clean and refreshing feeling, making him look all the more eye-catching under the golden rays of morning sunlight. He got closer and knocked Lu Rongyan on her forehead, urging the girl lost in a daze, “Wipe your saliva, it’s time to go home for breakfast!” Lu Rongyan was embarrassed. Ever since the day when Muchu was separated from Lou Sichen at Da
“Wow!” Lu Rongyan exclaimed into the phone and then announced to their colleagues excitedly, “Director Lou says we can go all out on food tonight. It will be his treat!” “Wow! Three cheers to Director Lou!” “Let’s go to a seafood buffet!” “Yes, yes, yes! Seafood buffet!” Muchu was embarrassed. This rowdy bunch was not holding back from slaughtering other people’s wallets. But would she, in turn, have to pay back all these graces they owed? As she pondered, Lu Rongyan called out to, “Chuchu, Director Lou is asking for you!” “Huh?” When she regained her senses, Lu Rongyan had already handed her the phone, so she could only bite the bullet and answer it. Around her, her colleagues were all shooting ambiguous looks at her. Muchu was feeling embarrassed under their scrutiny, so she turned around with her back facing them and answered Lou Sichen’s call without looking at them. “Director Lou.” She greeted professionally. “I have an important dinner meeting tonight,
The next day. Just as Muchu reached the hospital, Lu Rongyan came up to her with a stern and slightly angered expression and pulled her aside. “Chuchu, I’m about to tell you something that concerns Director Lou, but you must first promise me that you won’t cry…” Lu Rongyan had one hand behind her back as if she was hiding something. “What’s the matter?” Muchu was feeling curious as she stretched her head a little to try and take a peek behind her. However, before she could catch a glimpse of the ‘secret’ in Lu Rongyan’s hand, the glass door of the office was pushed open as Cheng Xuanying waltzed in. “Good morning everyone! I’m here to treat all of you to some candies!” Cheng Xuanying’s beautiful eyes formed half-moons as she shook the bag in her hand. Muchu could clearly see the huge word ‘Happiness’ printed on the white paper bag in her hand. Was that… wedding candy? Whose wedding candy? Is someone getting married? Lu Rongyan looked dearly at Muchu’s slightly pal
“Why? Are you jealous?” Lou Sichen asked Muchu. A smile hidden behind his eyes. “Jealous?” Muchu snorted and feigned pride as she raised an eyebrow. “Director Lou, are you mistaken? Why should I be jealous of you? I can’t be happier about your marriage! I’ve already eaten your wedding candy, so congratulations to both of you!” “Say that one more time.” Lou Sichen glare became so sharp they threatened to pierce through her alive. Muchu was probably irked by this sudden news of marriage so she straightened her neck and repeated, “I’m congratulating the both of you! Wishing that you’ll be happy together forever and to have kids soon!” After saying that, her eyes were completely red. She wanted to cry but she forcefully held back her tears. Lou Sichen’s piercing sharp gaze cut at her deeply. At that moment, the train just happened to have reached the next station. He abruptly let go of the arm around Muchu’s waist and said, “I must’ve been crazy to run all this way just to tr
Turning two steps into one, she rushed down the stairs and violently crashed into Lou Sichen’s arms, and then like an octopus, she climbed onto his tall frame with her legs wrapped around his solid waist tightly. Without even waiting for Lou Sichen to respond, she viciously bit down on his shoulder. Tears poured down like the rain in an instant, drenching his white shirt. The strength of her bite increased as she was clearly trying to vent out the anger and jealousy currently filling her heart. If it were not for him, how would she be in so much pain or how would she have shed so many tears? Lou Sichen had never expected Muchu to throw herself into his arms like this. It was not until he felt the waves of pain coming from his shoulder that he regained his senses. “… Ouch!” He intentionally cried out in pain in an attempt to win her sympathy. His arms then wrapped tightly around her slender waist as he frowned. “I haven’t seen you in only a few days and you only have ski
Lou Sichen spoke as he pulled Muchu over to put her in between himself and the countertop, his arms trapping her from behind. He was holding both ends of the rolling pin as he lowered his head to ask the girl in his embrace as if nothing was happening, “Should I just roll it like this?” His warm breath gently brushed Muchu’s cheek. Smelling that refreshing scent of mint on his body, listening to his pleasant voice, and sensing the comforting heat of his chest made Muchu’s heart skip several beats. Her cheeks were instantly painted with an enticing shade of red like the beautiful sunset of the horizon. “Hmm?” Lou Sichen knew that she was shy so he intentionally got closer to her ear to urge her. His thin lips scarcely brushed over the shell of Muchu’s sensitive ear and she shifted a little to the side out of embarrassment. She looked back at him and feigned anger as she glared at him. “You’re doing this on purpose!” “What?” Lou Sichen wore an innocent expression on his face.
