Pausing, Han Qilu goes on to say, “Really, it's no big deal. It's just… that is… An Chuxia refused me."
The atmosphere suddenly lightens. Xiao Mingluo and Ling Hanyu are relieved Qilu finally says it.
“So you've just been rejected. So what?! You see, both of you are just pair of the stupid variety. And you have the audacity to say, what … ‘Shut the f**k up.’ You are too fussy?” Xiao Mingluo says in disdain.
“Is it just because you confessed and An Chuxia refused? Where's the fire? Really… .” Both his friends express their disappointment.
Suddenly, their emotions start cooling down, and the atmosphere starts getting weird.
Han Qilu starts a countdown in his heart: three, two, one…
There was silence for three seconds. His friends come over to him. Ling Hanyu suddenly slides from the sofa to the ground.
Han Qilu helplessly sighed and says, “I didn't think you two would react so… quickly? You don't date… I know you."
“We don't date either.” Ling Hanyu gets up from the ground and sits back next to Han Qilu. “So… don't hold back on the details of the situation. Let us listen, ah, happily."
He knew he said the wrong thing. He quickly covers his mouth.
“I just gave her a chance. She moves into our home and lives with me. Now I actually want to play with her… Oh, I will not give her a chance! By god, I will never give her a chance. She and I do not mix well."
“Are you sure she is living in your house just to get close to you?” Xiao Mingluo raises his chin slightly and questions his logic. From what he's seen, An Chuxia doesn't seem to be the kind of person who would fall for someone like Han Qilu.
Is this all wrong?
“Then, what other reason is she living here?” Han Qilu throws the question back.
“That… then are you going to ask her to repair your relationship with your lovely girlfriend, Mo Xinwei?” Xiao Mingluo asks as he lifts an eyebrow to him. To tell the truth, he isn't qualified to give an impression of Mo Xinwei. She is rather thick headed, but she and Han Qilu feed on the same arrogance. People like them rely on it.
Han Qilu's eyes gaze past the the huge windows and out the distant sunny sky.
His mouth twitches a touch of a devil's smile. “Not only will I have her repair my friendship with Mo Xinwei, I am afraid I will have to trouble her in repairing my other relations with other people…”
“This is not OK, ah, Han Qilu!” Xiao Mingluo and Ling Hanyu chorus.
Xiao Mingluo adds, “Your relationship with An Chuxia is what absolutely caused this misunderstanding."
“Shut up, Xiao Mingluo!" he warns. ” Go, go to Atlantis! Also, do not mention that slut's name to me! Otherwise, we're not brothers!"
Finished, he once again puts on a cold face and leaves the hall first.
Atlantis is the largest bar in the city of A, and is owned by the Han Group.
Ling Hanyu looks behind Han Qilu. He then asks Xiao Mingluo, “Why are we doing this? I have a bad feeling… .”
“I feel something bad is going to happen. Forget it… let's go in first, and do not mention anything referring to An Chuxia,” Xiao Mingluo says helplessly.CHAPTER 40 Filed a Taboo

T/N: meimei (妹妹)- sister
Atlantis is open twenty-four hours a day, so even during the day, a lot of younger patrons leisurely drink in the establishment.
“Master, how is it that you're here during the day?” Will, the bartender/manager asks Han Qilu the moment he sees him walk in. He couldn't help but find it strange. There is almost a zero percent chance that in the middle of the week, in the middle of the day, Han Qilu would appear in Atlantis.
Han Qilu silently looks around before sitting down at the bar. He doesn't bother answering the question at all.
“Give me a glass of whiskey."
The bartender finds it stranger that he sits at the bar. He plans to continue asking what's wrong until he sees Xiao Mingluo and Ling Hanyu arrive together.
“Young master Xiao, young master Ling, what's wrong with young master Han? Something doesn't feel right?” Will lowers his voice and asks them.
The two friends look at each other. Xiao Mingluo says, “Four words can describe what happened to him."
Will thinks for a moment and replies, “Is it… the exam?"
“No!” Ling Hanyu interjects. “It… concerns his meimei!"
Will becomes silent and doesn't speak again.
“Okay, you should go. Leave us to deal with him.” Xiao Mingluo stops teasing Will and allows him to get back to his work.
In a blink of an eye, a hand holding a glass of whiskey emerges in front of Han Qilu.
“You two are really strong but you guys respond slowly!” He frowns, looks up and chugs the drink handed to him.
Ling Hanyu scratches his head and whispers, “Han Qilu, ah, according to the ancient gods, be guided by the spirits and you will worry and worry more about worry… .”
“Where in my eyes do you see me worrying? Don't joke around!” Will places another drink beside the glass Han Qilu just emptied. Han Qilu's face is full of disdain.
Ling Hanyu shrugs and loudly announces, “You, talk. I'll get us something to drink. Yes, Mingluo, what do you want to drink?"
“Give me a glass of milk."
“What?” Ling Hanyu’s mouths off, confused at the request.
Xiao Mingluo raises a hand and explains, “I cannot drink. With both of you drunk, who would look after you?"
Ling Hanyu raises his eyebrows, pivots on his heels and leaves for the bar.
“You are too much. I will not be drunk, alight?…,” Han Qilu proudly says. “I will have Mo Xinwei come to Atlantis. An Chuxia is dead!"
Xiao Mingluo's heart drops as Qilu suggests that no one should mention An Chuxia's name.
His heart pushes him to think. Mingluo quietly asks, “You're going to let her? Hasn't she not ever been your girlfriend?"
Qilu sits down on the couch next to the round table and says, “If I do a good job this time, maybe I could give her a chance."
“How could you be mistaken? How can you fancy Mo Xinwei of all people? Think of your first love and compare her to Xiang Mankuai. Mo Xinwei does not even compare!"
The atmosphere turns cold.
Damn! Xiao Mingluo scolds himself for his fervent argument. He inadvertently raised a taboo subject … this will guarantee his death would be ugly!
He looks at the side of the bar, hoping that Ling Hanyu is finally returning with some cold drinks and food from the the bar. It seems that the boy cannot be expected to help him out.
He hesitates to say something to ease the atmosphere. However, he is saved when a beauty comes over and accidentally bumps into him.
