Qi Xiu Yuan felt like he could not keep himself calm at all. Since the moment Xiao Li stooped down to look up at him with brightened eyes that looked as if all his dream had come true, and his voice was low yet full of determination as he said to him, ‘Qi Xiu Yuan, I am willing to.’ he felt as though he had been dreaming.
At that time, he had absent-mindedly listened to Xiao Li plotting out his plan with the police; listened to him give his men a call; infatuatedly and bewilderedly got in the elevator with him, watched the lounge bustled with words of power, then he felt as though he was floating along the wind as Xiao Li pushed him toward a black box style car and carefully helped him into the back seat.

“This group of kids only thought they were coming here to rescue a disabled hostage, so when they saw Qi Xiu Yun, they weren’t on guard at all. But, this guy is extremely sly. In less than a few words, he was able to get some information out of us. Then he acted all pompous and got Laohu close enough to him before he snatched the walkie-talkie. Afterward, taking advantage of the commotion, he locked himself on the balcony.”
Wu Qing Hua walked and mumbled to himself. He, himself, doesn’t even know if he was complaining that his men were terrible or explaining to Xiao Li that ordinarily his men were actually not that terrible. Continue reading
A little later into the night, Li Shi Qing had someone brought food over to Xiao Li’s room so that they can have dinner together.
Two bodyguards were standing behind him, but they were not the same men from before. Since the incident with Yan Ming and Liu Zi Cheng, Li Shi Qing has started to utilize all the bodyguards. Every day, four groups of men would switch off to protect him. Continue reading
Li Shi Qing walked out of the room and instructed his subordinate to call the other leaders for a gather before he took Xiao Li down the stairs. Once they arrived in the room, the caretaker Wu Jie had already prepared everything needed to change Xiao Li’s bandages.
Back in the room, the subordinate at the door, the bodyguards and Qi Xiu Yuan were still in their original position but when Li Shi Qing and Xiao Li walked in, all their eyes swept toward them.
Xiao Li did not know his lips—that had been kissed—was still captivatingly red, holding a hint of saliva that was glinting against the light in the room. All he saw and felt was the look in Qi Xiu Yuan’s eyes that made him appear he wanted to fight with someone as if his life depended on it. The look was so intense that it made Xiao Li afraid, afraid that Qi Xiu Yuan would say some inappropriate words and provoke Li Shi Qing’s anger. Continue reading
When Xiao Li was standing in the corridor, the care taker that Li Shi Qing had specifically hired to take care of him quickly rushed over to hand a pair of slippers to him.
“Mr. Xiao, can you take me into consideration for a moment? Even if you suddenly run off like that, at the least don’t go out barefoot,” said the middle-aged woman with her hair rolled up into a bun rather helplessly, “Mr. Li will blame me if you do this.” Continue reading

After saying those few words, Qi Xiu slowly walked toward the door. All the while, from behind him, the two men looked at each other with the eyes urging the other to take action, but ultimately no one moved.
Once at the door, Qi Xiu Yuan simply looked back at them. Continue reading

When the students bore nervous expressions, and pushed each other into the ward, Zhang Juan Juan had already gone out beforehand. After he returned from Xiao Yang’s residence, Zhang Juan Juan regularly came to his hospital room with a grave look yet never spoke a single word. Although she was supposedly there to monitor his movements, she was not strict about it at all. More often than not, her shadow would not appear either and when it did, she would always disappear before Susu made an appearance. This time when Qi Xiu Yuan received a call from the front desk that a few students was here to visit him, Zhang Juan Juan also flitted away. Continue reading

Li Shi Qing’s raging anger turned into laughter instead, “Yan Ming, you really have the guts and a hell of a brain.”
“You’re being too kind, too kind,” said Yan Ming cheerfully as he walked toward Li Shi Qing and stood in front of him at a distant slightly far away, while Xiao Li followed beside him. “It’s obvious that Xiao Li and I have joined force, why are you saying this to me and not to him? Then there’s Liu Zi Cheng, who had schemed to kill you, yet you wanted him to be your successor? I’m jealous that you’re not afraid of your nephew…even if I see you as my uncle, this gun here doesn’t.” Continue reading
As Li Shi Qing got up and retreated, he kept his head low allowing his expression to be hidden in the shadows.
“Qing……Qing Ye,” stammered Liu Zi Cheng from behind, sounding as if he has not fully recovered from the shock. From his point of view, Li Shi Qing’s back seemed to be beaten with exhaustion. He sighed deeply, picked up his gun and quietly said, “I really didn’t expect……”
“I also didn’t expect this.” Liu Zi Cheng’s voice sounded off again. However, this time it had changed from being waned with shock to being cooked with steadiness and danger as it traveled closely to Li Shi Qing’s right side. Continue reading
