He seldom heard the chief’s eager tone unless something major happened.
Wang Yuechuan patted the book of “Book of the Dead” he retrieved gently. He had now hidden the book in his clothes. Since the book carried much significance, he would not even dare to expose it if he hadn’t seen the chief in person.
Only by personally verifying this matter in front of that person could he explain everything. He also knew that his higher-ups weren’t united, and he had a few enemies there.
“Sir, how long until we reach the Lanling Mansion?” Wang Yuechuan asked the driver in a low volume.
“That’s hard to determine, boss.” The driver didn’t look back. “Look at the timing. We’re in the rush hour! Besides, tonight is Christmas Eve. Many people are leaving their house to hang out! By the way, boss, are you looking for fun somewhere?”
“I’m actually a little tired. Please call me when I arrive,” replied Wang Yuechuan perfunctorily.
Basically, Luo Qiu did not expect to arrive in the present situation. The event took place like the male protagonist of some popular novels on the Internet. A few beautiful women followed the MC. Each lady carried their shopping spoils in their hands.
To be more precise, Subeditor Ren’s harvest was the most fruitful. One-third of it was Li Zi’s loot: snacks.
The thoughtful maid was to reduce the burden of her master. Hence, even though Subeditor Ren patted her chest and promised that she would pay for whatever she wanted to buy, the maid still didn’t choose anything.
Why had it become like this?
Obviously, it was supposed to be a meal. But it turned into shopping in the mall before the meal.
“Don’t blame me! How did I know that there were so many people eating at that restaurant? We had to queue for two hours after we got into the queue!”
While saying this, Ren Ziling was in a jewelry store. The sales lady gave a few options to choose from.
Li Zi didn’t seem to be interested in these things. Instead, she was waiting for her Fruit Parfait in front of a milk tea shop nearby. As for the maid, she was casually browsing the cabinets of other jewelry stores.
“You don’t seem to have a habit of wearing jewelry?” Luo Qiu glanced at the various bags he put on the ground.
If there were more purchases, he had to carry this with his neck. Boss Luo did not want that to happen, whether it was spiritually or physically.
“Yes, I don’t have the habit!” Ren Ziling complained, “Who said I bought it for myself? I bought it for You Ye! By the way, does this necklace look good? Don’t look at me stunned like a piece of wood. Give me some advice?”
“For her?” Luo Qiu was a little surprised.
Ren Ziling rolled her eyes and said in annoyance, “She is such a good future daughter-in-law. Do you have a complaint for me to give her something? It’s so difficult to choose. I don’t think these fit her well enough.
How long could I stay with her?
Luo Qiu quietly watched Ren Ziling worrying about the options. Soon, he would leave the city and would not return for a while.
-In the pretense of studying abroad.
Luo Qiu didn’t know what changes the club would bring to this city. But one thing was sure: More and more non-human customers would come to the door in the future, excluding the previous human customers.
Many incredible things happened, and they occurred in the same place. Perhaps, that would attract the attention of the world one day.
Undoubtedly, Luo Qiu could easily suppress this.
It was just that Ren Ziling’s soul was so beautiful. Gorgeous with seven colors like a glaze.
“Yes!” Ren Ziling’s eyes suddenly lit up at this time. She stood up and pulled You Ye over.
Under the maid’s curious gaze, she picked a silver-white ring from the jewelry box. Then, she put it on You Ye’s slender middle finger with a smile, “This is just right! That’s it!”
You Ye glanced at the master, only to see Luo Qiu nodded gently. She then accepted it. Of course, these actions did not hide from Subeditor Ren’s keen eyes.
“You! Are you his girlfriend or a worker? Do you still need to look at this kid’s face when you take my things?” Ren Ziling hummed, “You know what. This kid is too bad. I have to help you lecture him properly!”
“I will cherish this gift.” When the maid saw the gift, she put her fingers away. She held her hand to her chest and said softly.
These words made Subeditor Ren’s anger subsided. She rolled her eyes but picked up another ring from the jewelry box. She grabbed Luo Qiu’s hand directly and put the ring on.
“You can’t complain that I don’t give you two Christmas gifts!” Ren Ziling raised her head slightly.
Luo Qiu looked at the silver-white ring fastened to his finger, a little startled.
Ren Ziling grabbed You Ye’s hand and Luo Qiu’s hand at this time, put them together, and whispered, “Good things are in pairs. These rings are in pairs too. Keep each other in the heart. Don’t forget that.”
On a winter night, Ren Ziling’s hands grabbed Luo Qiu and You Ye’s hands, making them warmer.
“Where did you copy the phrase?” Boss Luo took a deep breath and said something that ruined the romance.
Aunt Ren pursed her lips in a daze, resisting the urge to beat Luo Qiu violently. Instead, she pushed the two of them out, “Go! Go and see if it’s our turn! I will pay the bills here!”
“Miss Ren is so nice.”
Rubbing her fingers slowly on the ring, the maid walked beside the boss.
Luo Qiu hummed softly. He stopped, turned to look at You Ye, and whispered, “We will leave in a few days.”
You Ye was a little surprised. The original plan was to celebrate the Chinese New Year and leave after school in the UK reopened in the upcoming year. It had become a lot earlier. But the maid didn’t ask why. She just nodded gently.
