524 Living Next Door
“Really?” Li Limin frowned and said angrily, “He didn’t hurt you, did he?”
“Brother Limin, don’t worry. He didn’t hurt me. He, he just keeps staring at me. I’m afraid.”
Bai Meili quickly shook her head and looked up at him nervously. She bit her lower lip and said with difficulty, “Brother Limin, I want to ask you for help.”
“Alright, I’ll help you test that man when we get back later. If he has any evil designs on you, I’ll teach him a lesson.” Li Limin thought that Bai Meili wanted him to help chase the hooligan away and agreed without thinking.
“No, no, no.”
Bai Meili immediately shook her head and waved her hand in panic. “No, no, no, I don’t mean that. Brother Limin, I don’t want to cause you trouble. There’s no need for you to get into a conflict with someone. Besides, that person is not to be trifled with. I-I just want you to send me back and stay in my room for a while. I want that person to know that there’s a man in my room so that he won’t dare to act rashly.”
Li Limin was dumbfounded. “Meili, what did you say? I…”
Bai Meili’s face immediately turned red and she quickly explained, “Brother Limin, I don’t mean anything else. Don’t misunderstand me. Also, I-I have a boyfriend.”
Li Limin immediately heaved a sigh of relief. When he realized what was going on, he scratched the back of his head with a silly smile and said apologetically, “I’m sorry, Meili. I was thinking too much. I understand. How about this? If word gets out that we’re in the same room, it won’t be good for your reputation. I’ll book a room next to yours. This way, if you need anything, just shout. I can hear you.”
A glint flashed across Bai Meili’s eyes. Although this was not the outcome she wanted, as long as she brought him over, it would not be difficult to figure out a way to lure him into her room.
At the thought of this, she immediately smiled and thanked him. “Thank you, Brother Limin.”
At this moment, the waiter brought over two large plates of food. They looked delicious.
Li Limin handed Bai Meili a bowl of rice and teased, “Eat, eat more. You’re as thin as a chopstick. You’ll probably be blown away by the wind.”
Seeing Li Limin eating the rice in big mouthfuls, Bai Meili sneered in her heart. Pan Lingling, since you didn’t care about our sisterhood, don’t blame me for targeting your man.
“Brother Limin, do you drink? Do you want some wine?” Bai Meili asked tentatively.
Li Limin shook his head and refused without thinking. “No, I don’t like to drink.”
Bai Meili nodded and agreed. “You are a soldier now. It’s good that you don’t drink.”
As the two of them ate, they chatted about Pan Lingling. Unknowingly, they had been eating for more than half an hour.
After paying the bill, Li Limin and Bai Meili returned to the hotel. Just as Li Limin had said, he booked a room next to Bai Meili. Although the room was simple, it was quite clean.
“It’s getting late. Go to bed early. If something happens, shout. I can hear you.” Before closing the door, Li Limin reminded her.
Bai Meili casually tucked a strand of hair behind her ear, deliberately revealing her fair neck. She said shyly, “I understand, Brother Limin. Go to bed early too. Good night!”
When Li Limin saw this, he couldn’t help but swallow his saliva. He nodded. “Good night!”
