An Chenchuan would've preferred for them to refuse the offer but he speaks before An Chuxia does. "Please show us the way."
Satisfied, the manager smiles. Suddenly, Chuxia feels like they mattered… albeit casually. Both of them won't aimlessly wander and they'll be able to find the information they need.
Ha Qilu arrives at the exclusive VIP room. He finds Mo Xinwei leisurely reading a girl comic book. She was bored and she strolled around the bookstore. She knew there was an exclusive VIP room and the manager knew her, so gaining access to the reading room was easy.
The room isn’t fancy. It only has a small bookcase and a desk for reading. Of course, there is a bed, and it can be used as a sofa… and an office chair.
It is not opulent, but it is passable.
Mo Xinwei spins the office chair when the door suddenly opens. She was about to rage at the person disturbing her until she sees Han Qilu.
She flinches upon seeing his cold face. His eyes are fierce, like those belonging to wolves in a cold night. She is afraid of him when he's angry. She only dares to get close to him if he calms down first.
She hurriedly puts down the comics before standing up from the office chair. She thought she was clever to think Han Qilu won't barge in here.
"I need you to explain to me why you are here." Han Qilu's tone speaks in waves. His eyes cut her deeply; she can feel it in her heart.
She moves her lips but no sound emits. She mechanically stands in place.
"I asked you, why are you in my VIP room!" Han Qilu raises his volume. He puts fear into the stunned Mo Xinwei.
She needs to give him a reason and explain herself.
"I just want to find a quiet place to read. It's too noisy outside," she courageously answers as she approaches his side. "I've been planning things for An Chuxia. Han Qilu, don't you think that's good?"
"You're making peace with An Chuxia?" Han Qilu repeats her words. He is suspicious. He recalls what he said to her about An Chuxia when they were at Atlantis.
Mo Xinwei nods repeatedly. "I've been planning carefully. I don't want to ruin my good plans. I swear, I will never come back here!"
As she finished, she lifts her right hand to swear.
"You… ." He is about to tell her to stay away from An Chuxia when his phone rings in his pocket. He takes the device out and presses the answer key. The general manager comes over the phone.
"Master, I took the lady to find the counseling books but now, they won't listen to me. They said I can't stop them!"
The manager's voice is so loud, his anxiety can be heard. Mo Xinwei also hears the voice over the phone. Her brain turns and immediately clicks to the person the manager referred to as 'lady'.CHAPTER 104 Meeting Kang Wen
Translated, edited, and proofread by newbienoona
“I know you're on another floor. I'll come immediately.” Han Qilu's voice sounds a bit resigned, leaving Mo Xinwei very distressed. Strangely, it's over An Chuxia!
“Fourth floor.” The manager says two words. Han Qilu doesn't hesitate and hangs up the phone before leaving.
Mo Xinwei hurriedly pulls on Han Qilu's hand. “Han Qilu, I… ."
"You're not allowed to casually use my room. If you do this again, I'll have you banned!" he warns her before taking her hands off him. He steps out of the room without looking back.
Han Qilu heads over to the glass elevator. She reapplies mascara on her slender eyelashes before pursuing him. She wants to run up to him and stop him.
She looks up and stops among the crowd when she sees a familiar person. She tries to place him in her head. She saw him that day in Atlantis where he rescued the person in the box! His name is… Kang… what?
"Young master Kang?" She hesitates saying the three words. Han Qilu enters the elevators and it slowly rises. She looks at a distressed Kang Wen who stops pursuing Qilu. Even if he caught up to him, won't Han Qilu just embarrass him?
Kang Wen watches Han Qilu leave for the elevators as he sees Mo Xinwei emerge from the same room Han Qilu left. He pauses to talk to her.
"Miss, you know me?" Kang Wen asks with a faint smile. "Aren't you Han Qilu's woman?"
Before, she would quickly answer, "Yes, of course I am Han Qilu's woman". But she is aware of the frost brewing behind Kang Wen's seemingly gentle eyes.
She pauses and says quietly, "No, he's just a classmate. Do you need something?"
She is not entirely a fool.
Kang Wen looks at Mo Xinwei from head to toe. Since she is still in her Stein College uniform, Kang believes her… if only for a bit.
"Are you important to Han Qilu?” Kang did not use Han Qilu's title.
Mo Xinwei's heart immediately brightens. He is definitely the last thing Han Qilu would expect to extract revenge. He wouldn't know her involvement.
She thinks, and continues with, "No, although I hoped."
Mo Xinwei's eyes turn bleak as she expresses loneliness. Kang Wen empathizes. It seems she really isn't Han Qilu's woman.
"However, there is an important person in Han Qilu's life." Mo Xinwei's eyes flash with light. She sees An Chuxia walk down the stairs with another boy. Han Qilu is held up at the elevator by too many people. He has just arrived at the fourth floor.
"Who?" Kang Wen asks.
"That girl is believed to be Han Qilu's fiancée. She really makes people jealous to death." She follows An Chuxia and the general manager with her eyes. Mo Xinwei turns to Kang Wen and asks, "Don't you like Han Qilu?"
Her words surprise him a bit but he regains his composure because he can see Mo Xinwei's eyes… they are Yin hard.
