Mu Rulan looked at Mo Qianren, the smile on her face the same. Something in the air seemed to waver.
“I was wondering why you left so early in the morning. So you had a date planned with this pretty girl!” Lu Zimeng appeared at the entrance, an evil smile on his face as he looked at the pair.
The nervous atmosphere that had been present just a second before was immediately shattered. Translated by The Novelst
“Hey, it’s a nice day. Let’s go on a group date!” Lu Zimeng smiled widely, his teeth on full display. He pulled Mo Qianren to him.
Mu Rulan found Lu Zimeng amusing. “Mr. Lu, you seem to be in a very good mood today.”
“To be able to see you, of course I’m in a good mood!” Lu Zimeng winked.
Mo Qianren said suddenly from behind them, “What did you see?”
Mu Rulan was very in sync with him. She smiled as she looked Lu Zimeng in the face and said, “I saw his eye glance downward when he said he was in a very good mood and his fist was clenched and his smile too bright. The corner of his eyes were not wrinkled in laughter, and the muscles of his face were a little stiff. Mr. Lu, you’re lying to me, ya.”
Lu Zimeng’s expression was stunned. His eyes were widened to an unbelievable degree as he stared at Mu Rulan and then turned to Mo Qianren. What, it couldn’t be true? Mo Qianren was teaching Mu Rulan how to read microexpressions and body language?
But… This guy had told him that Mu Rulan was a psychopathic killer and that he wanted to throw her in jail!
“Not bad,” praised Mo Qianren. He glanced at Mu Rulan and turned around to walk away.
Mu Rulan understood immediately, following up, “Thank you for your praise, Teacher Mo.”
Lu Zimeng let out a “Huh?” and looked in shock at the two people walking away side by side. After a few slow blinks, he was finally able to react. “Damn it! Leaving your brother behind now that you have a woman!”
The cold wind whistling by reminded Lu Zimeng that this was indeed a crime scene. Looking at the bloodstains on the floor, he was chilled all of a sudden. He ran to catch up, “Eh, wait for me! Don’t leave me alone…”
After many days of rest and all the money she spent at the hospital, the scars on Bai Suqing’s face were finally gone.
Looking at herself in the mirror, she admired the skin that seemed to be more nourished than before. Bai Suqing pulled on an arrogant smile, taking out her phone to call Dong Qi to let him know she would be going to G City to discuss the contract.
After his confirmation, she quickly tidied her things and went on her way. She grew excited, thinking about becoming a large star like Dong Sixuan.
With only two thousand yuan in her pocket, Bai Suqing bought a train ticket and rode three hours to reach the city. The long ride was hard enough on her that she began to look for a hotel to rest before the meeting.
Thinking about her coming fame, she naturally wouldn’t choose just any hotel off the street. Instead, she entered a hotel that was very close to the headquarters of TMT Universal Entertainment.
She felt like she was on top of the world, an unrestrained princess. So when she strode to the counter, the words she spoke had an underlying superiority: “Give me a room.”
“Alright. Do you have a form of ID on you?”
Bai Suqing handed it over.
“Alright, how long is your intended stay?”
“For now, just one day,” she replied, handing over a credit card. She was unsure of how long the contract would take to solidify, and if TMT would arrange her a room after that.
The lady at the counter swiped the card, her expression turning a little strange but recovering immediately. “Miss, your card has insufficient balance.”
Just next to her, there happened to be a woman checking in for the night as well. When she overheard this, she shot a disgusted glance at Bai Suqing, making her quail with embarrassment inside her heart.
Bai Suqing was resentful inside, but still maintained an innocent expression as she took the card with a surprised, “Not enough?”
However, the woman next to her couldn’t help but speak, “Oh ya, if you don’t have money then it’s better not to come to this kind of place. This is a six-star hotel; not just anyone can afford it. Ah, I see now. Don’t tell me that you’re trying to put on a rich princess act, trying to snag a rich boyfriend in a place like this? Tsk tsk, at such a young age.”
Bai Suqing’s face paled, her eyes immediately tearing up as though she was wronged. “Don’t say that so easily…”
The woman wanted to give her even more of a hard time seeing her look like that. She hated to see women acting like sly foxes the most. They would always tear up at the slightest hint, as though they had been frightfully bullied.
“Don’t so what so easily? Then let me ask you, what’s your name? Who’s your father?”
“I…” Bai Suqing bit her lip. She grabbed nervously on to the corner of her shirt.
Though she looked so pitiful, she couldn’t even bring up her father’s name. Could it be that she was truly a Cinderella?
“Qing Qing?” When Mu Zhenyang entered the lobby, he spotted her immediately .
The moment Bai Suqing laid her eyes on him, she felt as though she was truly blessed by God. “Uncle Mu.”
“What happened?” Mu Zhenyang’s face held the beginnings of a frown as he walked over to her. Translated by The Novelst
“Your sugar daddy’s here?” the woman ridiculed. “Indeed you both look very well-matched. One smells poor and the other reeks of nouveau-riche.”
Mu Zhenyang glared at the woman, his expression fierce. “Watch your mouth! This is my daughter you’re speaking of!”
“It’s not rare to see people playing the god-father god-daughter game. Tsk, tsk. The moral degeneration of the world worsens day by day.” The woman shook her head as she turned around to walk away.
Bai Suqing was so angry she wanted to cut her to pieces, and Mu Zhenyang beside her was the same, shaking in rage. However, there were quite a number of people looking at them in the lobby. Wanting to avoid a spectacle, they held tightly to control their anger.
“Qing Qing, why are you here?” Mu Zhenyang was here for a business event, but what about Bai Suqing?
When Bai Suqing told him what was going on, Mu Zhenyang paid for her hotel room, even using a credit card that Ke Wanqing didn’t know about.
It wasn’t clear if this was because Mu Zhenyang had desired this kind of woman for so long or if it was that just a glance from Bai Suqing made him want to pamper her as though she was his real daughter.
Bai Suqing smiled shyly as she bid Mu Zhenyang goodbye from her hotel room. The moment the door closed, Bai Suqing tucked that expression away. She took out her newly purchased branded clothing and went into the bathroom to change. She had an appointment with Dong Qi to meet at two in the afternoon at TMT.You can support me & access to advance chapters here ^^ Become a Patron!
