He loved the stunned expression she had on her face along with the infatuated pair of eyes that was fixated on him. Her mouth opened, but closed the next second. She didn't utter a single word out, instead a smile and kiss to his lips was her response. Taken aback by her sudden shower of affection, his eyes widened, but body had long been tamed by her.
Xin Ya blinked a few times with a smirk on her face, "So.. you only told us that you two were a thing now~ When were you planning on telling us that you two were living together? Hmmmm?~~~"
"Umm..I..." Alan moved back two steps as Lin Que took a look at the typed report and examined the pill on the spot. After a few minutes, Lin Que crossed his arms and waited for an explanation. Finally, Alan gave up to Lin Que's mighty aura and confessed that it was a favor for a relative named Shen Wen.
"Son, it's for her own good. What if she's on drugs? Be a good boy. Let mom take care of this. You wait for the family doctor, okay? I have to get this to the lab." She kissed Tian Yuo on the forehead and pretended to walk upstairs to grab her bag. Immediately upon entering her room, she shut the door and locked it.
His voice held the same type of doting as it always did when speaking to her. "You..You always make me speechless hahaha, alright then. Shall we dance? I don't have my ballet shoes, so I can't do much."
"If that's all you needed, then just text me the time and location for the dinner. I need to go now. I have a lot of paperwork on my desk that needs to be dealt with." He ended the call before she could say anything else. He made it so clear to her that she couldn't even fight back even once.
"Is that another challenge hmm? I'll gladly accept it if its from you, wifey." He fixed her bed hair and brushed it away from her face. She wrapped her arms around his shoulder, "Who's your wife? We aren't even married yet!"
Susu crossed her arms and looked at Karen, "Did you see it clearly or would I have to replay the whole catwalk show for you? Hmm? My initials were engraved in my designs and at places that you would never notice. Therefore, you would never be able to remove my initials. You aren't so smart like you claimed yourself to be now, huh?"
Anger rushed through her bloodstreams, affecting her rationality if she even had any to begin with. She stood up on her own and pointed at Susu, "She's just playing you! What dowry? What wedding gift? How could you say that when she clearly knows that she wont be able to complete shit for you? Hah? What? Are you guys going to flaunt your love and the possible number of childrens that you are going to have? It's impossible!"
"Which doctor is your mom looking for? Maybe we could help you. Lin Que knows many famous doctors." Lily frowned at her negative words.
"Actually, Susu did make a move. We've already kissed." he broke it out to her that they've made some progress since the last time they had seen Lily.
Tian Yuo coughed on the ground in a fetus position as Chen Mu bent down and said, "By the way, you were not her first man. I was. To make sure you don't make up rumors about her, we got together after you guys divorced. Go near her again and I'll castrate you with my surgeon knife. Mark my words."
She stood there with her lips slightly parted, "You did what?" Her mellow voice and the warm palms that reached for his face instantly made him quiet. He could hear cricket sounds and crows cawing while passing by like those anime scenes where awkward silences took place.
Kitty regained consciousness at the perfect timing when their conversation was wrapping up. She had fallen unconscious after Ariana took mirrors and forced her to take a look at the nasty scar across her cheeks. Lily didn't leave Kitty any time to relax as she took alcohol pads and slapped it on the deep wound.
Inside the room, Lily wasn't sure how she should react after hearing about their identities. She greeted them politely and apologized for what had happened. Zi Yan comforted her as she observed Susu's condition, "we don't blame you. It's the cancer that's killing her."
"Whose phone is that? Can you please pick up the call, message or whatever outside? It's distracting us." Zi Yan spoke in a soft voice while wiping Susu's forehead with a wet cloth. Professor Luo Xia remained silent, but the frown on his face was evident.
He lowered his head to face the energetic girlfriend of his, "Morning dear, are you satisfied with my round butt that you're groping?"
Only Susu and Karen were left, and the judges didn't hold high hopes for them. Between these two girls, the judges wanted to look at Susu's design first, but was stopped by Professor Luo Xia.
She nodded, "I have it. When she made it, she used a type of material that would maintain the rose color. She told me that as long as I had this in my hands and didn't tell anyone about it, then I'll be safe. That's where I got the inspiration of creating the....."
She massaged his cheeks to minimize his wrinkles with a smile on her face, "Actually, I am quite happy to hear this."
"Chen mu, I am not going to spin around circles to ask you one question. If my assumptions are correct, the pill that you had in hand is from Susu's bottle of pills. The reason why you came to the lab and performed the research experiment is that you've already recognized what pills she was taking, but wanted to make sure. Am I right?"
As much as Chen Mu would love to pin Susu down, he would only do things that she gives consent for and is comfortable with doing. After Lily had left, he followed the same exit out of the lab and started to laugh slightly, "Haha, you do have the most valuable friend. I'm glad you have someone like that to protect you, other than me."
Okay, let me know if any of you need anything." With that being said, he closed the door behind him after exiting. Susu's smile froze and her eyes were covered in frost as her tone turned neutral. "I have a lot of questions, but you two can tell me your story first."
