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.

“It’s only natural that Xiao Li would know more about their internal affairs but you also need to act appropriately. Don’t let him lead you around by the nose.”

After Sun Ze Yu finished speaking, he hung up the call with Wu Qing Hua and quickly dialed another number. “Lu Wu,” he simply stated, “Xiao Li is making his move ahead of time…. all of a sudden means all of a sudden. Since he has started, we have to catch up with him. Then let me make it clear to you, Li Shi Qing did not kill Yan Ming. He had him placed in a mental institute research center at the outskirt of the city. When I had asked you for manpower before, it was to let them go there to cause a disturbance and pretend to save Yan Ming just to draw Li Shi Qing out there…. don’t mention it, that’s for something else. I want him to leave the city for at least an hour. It’s all good now so let your men surround him. Xiao Li and I will take care of things in the city, and everything else will go as planned. Is there any problem? …okay, set out.” Continue reading

“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

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
