Chapter 323: Lu Jingye Said, I’ll Take You to Celebrate Your Birthday in Advance
Li Xia had been waiting for Zi Yi inside their rooms. The moment she saw that she had walked in, she hastily walked up and asked anxiously, “Zi Yi, what is going on right now outside? Are you alright?”
“There are many higher-ups and doctors outside. They will resolve the following issues. We should sleep first.”
Li Xia wanted to go out and check out the situation, but she dared not do so. In the end, she followed Zi Yi and fell asleep.
Zi Yi continued to lie down and wait.
Sometime later, there were no longer any movements outside. Li Xia who repeatedly claimed that she could not fall asleep had also started to snore.
Just then, a slight movement sound was heard from the window.
Zi Yi quickly flipped her quilt away and got down from the bed as she ran towards the window.
She saw the man who stood outside as she pulled the curtains to one side. The corner of her lips could not help but curl up.
Lu Jingye looked at Zi Yi who was in her pajamas and his voice slightly dimmed. “Go and grab a coat. I’ll bring you outside.”
Zi Yi nodded. She turned around and found a coat to wear and put on her shoes before she walked to the window and climbed up with the help of a chair.
Lu Jingye caught her from outside the window. He did not release her and instead carried her as he headed in a direction, taking large strides.
Zi Yi hugged his neck and stared at his face. The depths of her eyes revealed flickers of glimmers.
While Lu Jingye carried her in his arms, he arrived at a remote corner and put her down.
Zi Yi had her back against the wall while her hands remained on his neck and stared at him with that beautiful pair of eyes of hers.
How could Lu Jingye possibly endure such a gaze? He lowered his head and kissed her lips.
The passionate kiss seemed to be able to instantly melt both of them into puddles.
Both of them missed each other very much and as they had not seen each other for half a month, the kiss intensified to the extent that it was about to become uncontrollable.
The fire inside their bodies was ignited.
Lu Jingye held onto her tightly as if he wished he could press her into his body. The next second before he was about to lose control, he used his strong willpower to put on the brakes.
The both of them were out of breath after the kiss.
Zi Yi leaned her head on his chest and listened to his strong heartbeat while she gasped for air.
After they remained in that position for quite some time, Zi Yi asked, “Ah Jing, how’s your younger brother?”
His hand on her hand tightened and there was a slight tension in his voice. “Not too good.”
Zi Yi looked up into his eyes and just so happened to see the trace of a sad glint in his eyes.
She stood on tiptoe and kissed him on the lips and asked, “Is your younger brother brain dead?”
Lu Jingye looked at her and traces of surprise flashed past his eyes.
Zi Yi leaned her head on his chest again and said, “I saw you offering a high reward for those medicinal ingredients in the underground black market.”
She rubbed her cheeks on his clothes and said in a whisper, “Those medicinal ingredients are indeed good, but the present medical devices are incapable of extracting all the essence from inside. Therefore, even if it is used to treat someone, the efficiency would not be all that great.”
Lu Jingye’s heart rate unconsciously increased as he heard what the young lady said. He controlled his voice and asked, “Yiyi, do you know how to create those machines that can process those medicinal ingredients?”
“Yes. But those medicinal equipment would require some special materials.”
“Just say it. No matter what material you require, I can get them.”
Zi Yi gave him a list of materials that she required.
Lu Jingye’s heartbeat sped up. He was someone who would stay calm and collected no matter what situation or event he encountered. Yet, at that moment, he was so excited that he could not control himself.
What has he ever done to have found a treasure like her?
What was his baby incapable of?
Lu Jingye suddenly buried his head into the curve of Zi Yi’s shoulders.
His hoarse voice sounded only after quite some time. “Ok. I will gather all those materials during this period while you’re in military training.”
Zi Yi rubbed her cheek against his and the next second, a kiss landed on her cheeks.
At the same time, a deeper voice sounded. “Yiyi, I love you.”
Zi Yi’s heart trembled and the next second, her lips curled up uncontrollably. “I love you too.”
Immediately after, she asked, “Then when will you marry me?”
Lu Jingye felt warm deep down. He pressed her head against his heart and said, “I will marry you whenever you wish to marry me.”
Zi Yi was delighted. “Then… let’s wait until your younger brother regains consciousness.”
“I hope that the people you care about would give us their blessings.”
Lu Jingye controlled his surge of emotions. He only responded with an ok after quite some time.
He released his grip on her and pulled onto her hand.
Zi Yi thought he was about to send her back and tightened her grip on his hand. There were traces of grievance in her voice. “I don’t want to go back.”
Lu Jingye turned and looked at her, before he simply picked her up and said, “I’ll take you to celebrate your birthday in advance.”
“There’s a few days before your birthday. I might not be able to come over that day, so I’ll celebrate your birthday with you in advance tonight.”
Zi Yi was elated. “Where are we going?”
“I borrowed a room.”
He carried her and walked in large strides after that.
Soon, they arrived at the side door of the residence where Zi Yi was staying in the military dog training camp. They went out and there was a car parked there.
After they got in the car, Zi Yi looked at him and asked curiously, “How did you get in here?”
“I’m familiar with the higher-ups here.”
Zi Yi nodded and did not continue to ask.
Lu Jingye drove the car out.
Zi Yi thought back to the aggressive behavior of the military dogs tonight and said, “Ah Jing, pass me your phone for a while.”
She wanted to investigate what had happened tonight.
Lu Jingye guessed her intentions and stopped her. “They will investigate this incident. There should have been a result and it’s not suitable for you to step in.”
Zi Yi thought for a moment and mentioned the incident where her suitcase was taken away.
Lu Jingye remained silent for a period of time before he said with certainty, “Yesterday’s situation should be because they were testing you. When you came here, the M.Uni higher-ups should have mentioned you to them.”
“What’s there to test? Could it be that they want me to do something for them?”
When she said that, Zi Yi turned silent.
The possibility was very high.
However, it just so happened that someone drugged the military dogs tonight.
“This is too much of a coincidence.”
Zi Yi looked towards Lu Jingye and noticed his heavy expression. “Ah Jing, don’t worry. If someone wants to hurt me, I will make them regret having that thought.”
Lu Jingye did not speak, but his grip on the steering wheel was very tight.
Soon, the car stopped in front of a building.
There was a guard outside the gates. The guard merely glanced at the car and allowed them entry.
Lu Jingye parked the car inside and led Zi Yi inside the building.
The area was very quiet. It was already 1 a.m in the morning now and the people who lived here were either asleep or similar to the group of higher-ups earlier and had yet to return.
They headed towards one of the rooms and stopped.
Lu Jingye took out the key to open the door and held Zi Yi’s hand as they walked in.
Zi Yi’s eyes brightened at the sight of the cake inside the room.
There was also a large bouquet of flowers placed beside the cake, and a small box beside the flowers.
Zi Yi quickly walked to the table and looked at the three items.
Lu Jingye walked over and stood behind her. His long limbs stretched out to grab the small box and opened it. It was unexpectedly a ring.
The design was very simple, but the workmanship was very delicate. In particular, the crushed diamonds inlaid on it. She loved it so much even at first glance.
Zi Yi took it out for a look and found a row of letters carved inside the ring.
She rubbed her fingers across it. When she realized what the letters were, she turned around and looked at Lu Jingye.
Lu Jingye took the ring from her hands and placed it on the middle finger of her right hand with a serious face.
“In this case, everyone will know you’re someone with a boyfriend.”
On the surface, Lu Jingye appeared to be gentle and polite. However, he was not a romantic person and his thoughts were also rather old-fashioned.
Yet, he had done such a romantic thing today and said such romantic words. Zi Yi felt sweetness spreading in her heart.
