He was deeply aware because he had a relationship. He knew how to nurture one.
The girl was now waiting for him to say such a thing, staring intensely at him. It was like the moment she was filming for the commercial – the character who had just begun her first love.
Lipsticks were not put on the same faint lips during the shooting, but the sweet cherry flavor had seemingly remained. It was probably mixed with the fragrance of tiramisu too.
How sweet will this taste?
Zhu Maolin closed his eyes instead but couldn’t imagine it.
“It’s like the bear in spring.” Zhu Maolin suddenly said a word and opened his eyes at the same time.
Little Lu showed a puzzled look.
Zhu Maolin smiled lightly, “A description in “Norwegian Forest.” Affection is like a bear in spring.”
“Why a bear?” Little Lu asked subconsciously.
Zhu Maolin looked at the cloudy sky above as if trying to imagine it gathering into the shape of a bear and said, “In the spring field, the blooming flowers are accompanied by birds chirping and flowers exuding fragrance. You are walking alone on the hillside. A fluffy and panda-like bear came up from the opposite. It sat in front of you stupidly, blinked at you, so you hugged it, and then rolled down the soft hillside. You don’t feel hurt because the bear, the grass, and the soil are soft. Your body is covered with grass clippings and wild chrysanthemum petals. At this moment, you don’t have to think about anything. You feel relaxed physically and mentally. Don’t you like it?”
“I like it.” Little Lu closed her eyes and said softly.
“I copied these words to chase after my current wife.” Zhu Maolin interrupted Little Lu’s fantasy instantly.
She opened her eyes, surprised and disappointed. There was something she couldn’t see through on Zhu Maolin. What he said surprised her entirely. It was a rejection.
“Do you love your wife very much?” asked Little Lu hesitantly.
“How can I not love her?” Zhu Maolin asked rhetorically.
Little Lu did not speak but instead opened the box. She silently finished the tiramisu. She then got up from the swing, turned her back to Zhu Maolin, and stood straight as if preparing for something.
She took a deep breath, “Can I sing?”
At this moment, Zhu Maolin also thought of this song. But, Little Lu shook her head gently and said in a low voice, “A song written to me by a bard once…”
Zhu Maolin was taken aback as if he didn’t hear it clearly, but saw that Little Lu suddenly opened her hands, like a swan spreading its wings, spinning, jumping, and lowered herself.
——Are you going to Scarborough Fair?
——Coriander, sage, rosemary, and thyme
——Please say hello to a girl there for me
——She used to be my true love.
——Can you have her make me a linen shirt…
She closed her eyes as if she escaped from the hustle and bustle forever.
The surrounding winter scenery seemed to have fallen back into late autumn. The bleak autumn wind swept across the endless wasteland with the smell of dry grass. She was like a barefoot wandering dancer who was also waiting for someone’s return.
This was not any version that Zhu Maolin was familiar with.
He unknowingly let his mind banish to this wasteland, forgetting everything.
It seemed like he had come to this lonely dancer and became the person she was due to return.
Softly, he heard the call of the dancer.
“My birthday wish is that I hope I can find someone I like, stay with him all the time, and give birth to a lovely child with him. Can you help me fulfill this wish?”
Zhu Maolin sighed slowly with his heart turning alive. The male instinct was like a volcano that had accumulated for a long time.
He suddenly got up, “I’m sorry. I want to go home.”
The car parked outside the small park started and drove away. It seemed that he didn’t want to stay for a moment. When he ultimately left, Little Lu sat on the swing alone.
Next to Zhu Maolin’s spot where he last sat was the empty box containing tiramisu.
She seemed to be distracted. She subconsciously raised her palm, only to see a white card slowly appearing on her palm.
Then, the white card shattered entirely in an instant. When the investor temporarily extinguished all trading possibilities, the White Card representing the investor would shatter.
At least, in a short period, the corresponding investor’s heart was almost perfect, or the investor felt that he was capable of doing what he wanted to do.
“Oh! You’re here! What are you doing here, not going home in the middle of the night? I slap you a few times, and you left! Have you forgotten who your father is? Huh? Where is he?”
A figure rushed into the small park with a fierce face and a mustache. He had a middle-aged appearance. At this time, he could only see Little Lu sitting in this place alone.
He walked into Little Lu’s side and curiously said, “Sister Number 18, didn’t you ask me to be here on time at twelve?”
“No need.” “Little Lu” glanced indifferently, “You can go play by yourself. This mission failed.”
The fierce middle-aged man gradually faded in astonishment, slowly reverting to Dazhe.
A black mist gushed out from ‘Little Lu.’ She was already wearing a black robe again in the next second. Little Lu’s appearance seemed to be once again sealed in the invisible black mist forever.
She disappeared in front of Dazhe.
I play by myself?
What am I supposed to do?
“En… Please give me this part. Yes, this part is marked with 7.”
In the club, Boss Luo was indulging in assembling a Christmas tree that he had just ordered. He stretched out his palm at this time. After a while, the maid directly delivered the required parts to his hand.
“It’s almost finished.” You Ye looked expectantly at the almost finished Christmas tree.
At this moment, black smoke slowly poured in from the club door. Without looking back, Luo Qiu said, “Number 18, you are here. Come, let’s put together this Christmas tree. It’s almost done.”
“Yes, master.” Number 18 nodded and walked respectfully to Boss Luo’s side. Under Luo Qiu’s instructions, she hung a decorative item on the Christmas tree’s upper layer.
While hanging, Number 18 whispered, “Master, I have failed. The White Card you approved this time has shattered.”
“En… take the stuff over there.” Luo Qiu pointed.
Number 18 passed the item quickly. After Luo Qiu installed it, he took two steps back. The Christmas tree was adequately set up.
Boss Luo looked at the Christmas tree with satisfaction and smiled, “How do you feel?”
Number 18 said subconsciously, “Your subordinate relies too much on the [Dream Teller] ability. Although I have had success, I neglected the basic abilities that Black Soul Messenger should have. Once I fail to activate [Dream Teller], I may not be as good as a newcomer. I should have been self-aware.”
“I’m talking about this Christmas tree.” Luo Qiu shook his head.
Number 18 raised her head, “This. It’s naturally the best since the master has personally installed it.”
Luo Qiu shook his head and said calmly, “Of course it is the best, but not because I installed it. It’s because I did it with my hand.”
He walked to the counter and started to fiddle with the drink under You Ye’s assistance, “Doesn’t it feel perfect once you do it by yourself?”
Number 18 went into deep thoughts.
“This time, do you want to drink before leaving?” Luo Qiu asked with a smile.
“Thanks for your courtesy.” Number 18’s tone relaxed subconsciously, “Honey beer.”
Luo Qiu smiled slightly, “Okay, please wait a moment.”
The new boss was much better than the previous one. Number 18 thought subconsciously.
