“We have some time before we head off to bowl. Take me out to play.” Han Qilu doesn’t hesitate to click on the task manager to quit the game on the computer.
He doesn’t consider the feeling of his teammates as he leaves them unexpectedly. Slowly, she responds, “What did you say?”
He rolls his eyes and says, “I want to go to the place you used to live. Don’t misunderstand me. I just want to experience poverty.”
Subconsciously, he wants to see where she lived. An idea flashes in his mind before adding, “I won’t allow you to say no. Otherwise, I won’t take you bowling.”
He doesn’t understand why it’s so urgent for her to go bowling, but he thought it’s wise to use the threat as a bargaining chip. People with high IQ would see through his trick. If An Chuxia knows what he’s thinking, it might be enough to spur his death!
She stares at him silently for three seconds before saying through clenched teeth, “Fine, but you can’t cause me any trouble. Let me change out of these clothes.” She puts on a harness coat. The lower part of her body is dressed in a lacy, black floral mini skirt. She currently sports a valuable crystal necklace. If she goes back to her neighborhood wearing it, it might scare everyone.
The last time she was in her neighborhood, Han Liuhai drove a custom-built car to help her move her belongings and it scared everyone. She hopes her return would be more low-key.
“I don’t think it’s a good idea to change clothes.” Han Qilu’s expression is a little stoic, but An Chuxia doesn’t listen. She catches his eye and says, “I never used to wear skirts.”
Han Qilu raises his eyebrow slightly. “Don’t use this excuse to waste my valuable time. Walk, don’t talk.”
He pulls Chuxia by the collar and leads her out of the room. As he opens the door, he sees a flustered Jiang Yuan fleeing. She knows she’s in an inescapable position and stands her ground. “I was just passing.”
Ice cold pupils sweep up and down Jiang Yuan’s frame. “Mother, your bedroom is on the third floor. Your writing room is on the first floor. I don’t think there’d be any reason you would pass my room.” He doesn’t wait for his mother to argue with him. With a clenched jaw, he warns, “You will perish at your own will if you dare eavesdrop or peep.”
He says the words to scare Jiang Yuan. Last year, she made a mistake and suffered the consequences of violating their agreement. He didn’t speak to her, and she quickly felt stifled!
She doesn’t hesitate to raise her right hand and make a pledge. “There won’t be a next time! But… why do you have to go there? I didn’t hear you clearly a moment ago.”
Han Qilu shoots her a warning look. Jiang Yuan covers her mouth and says, “I didn’t ask that.”
An Chuxia is surprised at how impolite Han Qilu is regardless of their standing. He again grabs Chuxia by the collar and tows her outside until they reach his sports car. He seats her in the passenger seat.
She remembers the last time she sat in the car… she wanted to leave! Subconsciously, she looks at the interior of the car. It doesn’t have any trace of filth. It’s like the day of the rain never happened.
“Lead the way.” Han Qilu assumes she remembers how to get there. He’s surprised to find out he overestimated her. Chuxia says in embarrassment, “I don’t remember.”
