“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
After what seemed like several minutes and several few more seconds, Li Shi Qing recovered. His brows slowly pulled together into a frown before he turned around to look at Xiao Li.
Xiao Li was expressionless.
Li Shi Qing turned back, narrowed his eyes and stared at Qi Xiu Yuan for a long time, observing him. Finally, he coldly said, “It’s best if you don’t play any tricks with me.” Continue reading
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

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
After Xiao Li came down the stairs and returned to the car, he did not start his engine immediately. He simply sat there waiting until he saw Qi Xiu Yuan emerged. Two people appeared from the car parked at the corner and quickly made their way toward the corridor pushing a stretcher. After coming back out with the person lying on the stretcher and skillfully lifting him into the car, a couple minutes later, they rapidly sped off.
Finally loosening his tense body, Xiao Li pulled his phone out to make a call. Continue reading
Xiao Li was speechless for a long time while he looked Qi Xiu Yuan up and down as if he does not recognize him. After another moment flashed by, unable to withstand the expectation that dwelled in the eyes that took in his, Xiao Li turned away, “What do you mean leave together, weren’t you just scared a moment ago?” Continue reading
