Hillworth was a highly rated five-star hotel. Whether it was the elevator or the passageway, the hotel exuded elegance and luxury, and its ambiance quickly lifted one’s mood just by being there.
Xiao Luo headed to room 1305 and stopped in front of the door before taking out his phone to call Su Li.
He got through to her in two rings.
Su Li’s voice was icy, as usual. Not that she was deliberately being arrogant, but the manner of her speech was a habit formed over a long period.
Despite it, the tone of her voice was soft. It was already a significant change to her compared to when Xiao Luo first met her, and it warmed his heart hearing her voice.
He coughed for a bit, then said, “I’m already at Hillworth Hotel. I’m just outside your room; can you open your door?”
After saying that, there was silence on the other end of the phone.
As Xiao Luo wondered if something was wrong with the phone, the room door of 1305 opened, and a beautiful figure appeared from behind the door.
With her silky hair, delicate features, and fair skin, she was a stunning beauty that stood above everyone else. She possessed a sensuous and ethereal beauty. It couldn’t be anyone other than Su Li.
The white tunic skirt wrapped seductively around her graceful figure, resembling small waves. Her neckline exposed her visible collarbone, and she had a face that looked meticulously crafted. She stood there looking both glamourous and coquettish. She was flawless, and it was more than enough to make any guy fall into an obsession over her.
Su Li was stunned when she saw Xiao Luo. Still holding on to her phone, she stared blankly at him with her beautiful eyes.
Xiao Luo kept his phone back and said, “Surely you’re not planning to make me stand outside, right?”
Su Li finally realized that she was not hallucinating, and it was indeed Xiao Luo. The journey from Xiahai to Jingcheng was over a thousand kilometers. They were on the phone less than an hour ago, and here he was now, standing in front of her. How did he get here so quickly?
In her state of stupor, the phone slipped out of her hand.
Xiao Luo instantly stretched his right hand out and grabbed her phone before it hit the floor. He then laughed mischievously and said, “What’s wrong? I know you’re excited to see me, but surely you don’t have to drop your phone, right?”
Su Li ignored his attempt at a joke and looked at him incredulously. “You How did you do it?” she said.
“Do what?” Xiao Luo pretended he did not quite understand her question.
“Weren’t you still in Xiahai an hour ago? How did you suddenly appear here?” Su Li asked.
Xiao Luo chuckled and said, “I was lying to you. I arrived at Jingcheng airport when I returned. I was about to take a connecting flight back to Xiahai, but when I called you, you said you were at Jingcheng, so I came over to look for you.”
That was all he could say. He definitely couldn’t tell the truth, or Su Li would surely treat him like a weird monster.
“So, you just returned from Japan tonight?”
Su Li was much calmer now that she understood what was going on. If Xiao Luo had come over from Xiahai, then she would have considered it to be nothing short of supernatural.
Xiao Luo nodded his head and replied, “Yes.”
After saying that, he took a step forward, and came very close to Su Li. They were barely several centimeters apart, their faces almost touching, and they could feel each other’s breath on their faces.
“You What are you doing?”
Su Li’s cheeks suddenly turned red, and she unconsciously took a step back.
Xiao Luo stretched his hands out and wrapped his arms around her slender and soft waist. He coughed a little and said, “Absence makes the heart grow fonderhaven’t you ever heard of it?”
Upon hearing that, Su Li’s face turned even redder. She tried to push him away, and whispered, “Stop that, there are people here.”
“There are people here?” Xiao Luo furrowed his eyebrows slightly.
As soon as he said that, a voice came from inside the room.
A woman in black business attire appeared in Xiao Luo’s field of vision. Her long hair cascaded over her shoulders like a waterfall. She wore glasses and her looks were average, but her figure was perfect, with her tight-fitting business attire accentuating her curves.
As soon as she saw that there was a man at the door, the woman immediately stopped speaking.
This must be Su Li’s lawyer!
Xiao Luo guessed, but before he could even say anything, he heard another female voice coming from inside.
“Li, who’s there?”
She wore a black dress. Her long, wavy hair, with streaks of rosy red, framed her charming snow-white face. Her full, voluptuous figure exuded a wild charm. An alluring pair of pink-colored silk stockings wrapped her long legs, and she wore crystal-colored high heels. She had a dignified and elegant demeanor, and it could have been none other than Sheng Qingyan.
“Xiao Luo?” Shen Qingyan was surprised he had turned up.
Xiao Luo frowned. He had initially wanted to move closer to Su Li, but now he could forget about that idea. A lawyer and a best friend were akin to two high-wattage light bulbs shining into one’s face during interrogation, and Xiao Luo instantly pulled his arms away from Su Li’s waist, then forced a smile before greeting Shen Qingyan. “Ms. Shen, long time no see.”
“It has been quite a while, indeed. I heard you went to Japan, and it seems like you’ve learned quite a lot while you were there. You’re already being naughty with Li as soon as you see her,” Shen Qingyan said as she sauntered up, looking slightly envious. She was best friends with Su Li and seeing her BFF completely subdued by another man, it was hard for her not to feel a little jealous.
“What are you saying?”
Su Li retorted with a glare, then gently nudged her a little.
“I said nothing wrong, did I? I saw everything that was going on. This guy had his arms wrapped around your waist. Both of your lower abdomens were almost stuck to one another,” Shen Qingyan responded, moving her hands to mimic what she saw.
Su Li’s ears were glowing red by now.
Xiao Luo was feeling a little embarrassed now, but remained calm, and said, “We’re husband and wife, surely it’s not a crime to display this kind of intimacy, right?”
Husband and wife?
So, this guy is Su Li’s husband!
The female lawyer thought to herself.
“Well, I didn’t say you guys committed any crime, did I?”
Shen Qingyan realized she couldn’t counter Xiao Luo’s riposte and changed the topic immediately. “Right, Xiao Luo, is your Jin Clinic not planning to give me a way out at all? I mean, just looking at Xiahai’s market share nowmy Huayao Group and Renhe Medicines are both trailing far behind Jin Clinic. It’s probably just a matter of time before Jin Clinic dominates the national market. I’m just going to ask you this, do you have to go to this extent?”
“I’m not the one who’s in charge, so if you want to work together with us, you can speak to the person who heads Jin Clinic,” Xiao Luo said.
Shen Qingyan sneered, “Jin Clinic cannot compare when you consider Huayao Group’s financial resources, and if we worked with Renhe Medicines, I’m afraid that your Jin Clinic will not have the capital to compete. It might make sense for us to discuss collaboration, but I’m not the one who should look for you. You guys are the ones who should start the discussion.”
“Is that so? Then how much money do you think my Jin Clinic will need to take you over? Will one billion USD be enough?” Xiao Luo responded aggressively.
Not only was Shen Qinyan shocked, but even Su Li and her female lawyer were stunned as well. The sum that Xiao Luo mentioned, when converted to Hua Nation’s RMB, would be over six billion RMB. Investing six billion RMB into Jin Clinic would make Jin Clinic even more powerful than Huayao Group. Then what position would that force Renhe Pharmaceutical to take? A takeover war? Who was going to take over who?
Shen Qingyan looked at Xiao Luo and a chill ran down her spine. It was the first time that she realized how scary this man actually was!
