He was already pissed since his plan of trying to get closer with Su Li had been ruined. Shen Qingyan used such an aggressive tone to question him; hence, Xiao Luo’s tone wasn’t all that nice either. With just one statement, he completely made Shen Qingyan speechless.
After walking into room 1305, Xiao Luo realized that it was a suite. There were a bedroom and a living room. It was pretty spacious, over a hundred square meters, and the decoration in the room was first class. It looked elegant, neat, and grandiose.
The female lawyer’s name was Ning Wanxiu. She came here to learn more about the situation regarding Su Xiaobei, so as to better prepare herself for the trial that would be held in two days and gain an early advantage. They continued their discussion, while Xiao Luo went to the bathroom to take a shower. His body had perspired quite a bit after traveling for a long distanceand it felt pretty uncomfortableso taking a shower was a must for him.
The female lawyer had left by the time he came out.
Shen Qingyan got up, too. Perhaps she could tell she was being a huge light bulb: “I’ll take a shower as well. My entire body feels uncomfortable.”
She fanned herself and walked towards the bathroom.
Su Li sat on the sofa. To mask her nervousness, she grabbed a book and flipped it over to pretend like she was reading it. Her hair had been let loose, and it flowed down naturally to her waist. It was as if an angel had descended from heaven.
“What this book is about?” Xiao Luo walked over and sat beside her. His nose could easily smell the faint body fragrance coming from this woman’s body.
“If you’re interested, then look at it yourself.” Su Li closed the book and put it to the side.
“But I’m only interested in you now.” Xiao Luo raised his hand and held her in his arm.
Su Li panicked a little at the start, but shortly after, like a docile sheep, she lay down in Xiao Luo’s arms.
“I said it before, in front of me, you don’t have to always put up a brave front. Xiaobei will definitely return to our side,” Xiao Luo comforted her and gently patted her on the back.
Su Li was shocked. She didn’t imagine that Xiao Luo had already seen through her helplessness. That’s right. When the Bai family took Su Xiaobei away, she was helpless, and she even broke down. Su Xiaobei might not be her biological daughter, but she couldn’t live without her regardless.
She nodded her head gently, closed her eyes, and snuggled in this man’s arms. Right now, she was like a small boat that had through stormy waves, but had returned safely to the harbor.
Xiao Luo was already very satisfied just hugging her like that. When he recalled how the both of them first met, it honestly wasn’t love at first sight. He only started paying more attention and developed feelings for her after all the things that the both of them had been through. He realized that she was cold on the outside but warm on the inside. She would often say a whole bunch of insincere stuff, but her concern towards him was genuine.
Perhaps, after what happened to the both of them, Su Li had since treated him as a husband that she would spend her life with. What’s funny was that he always thought that she would bring up the topic of divorce eventually and end up with another guy afterwards.
“Seems like they were destined to be with one another!”
Shen Qingyan came out after showering. When she saw the both of them lying on the sofa, she didn’t ruin the scene but went back to her bedroom quietly, closing the door as well.
“You don’t have to worry about Xiaobei. I can handle it by myself.”
After a long while, Su Li broke away from Xiao Luo’s embrace and got up to pour some tea for Xiao Luo and herself.
“Do you think you’ll be able to win this lawsuit?”
Xiao Luo reminded her, “The one you’re going up against is the Bai family.”
Su Li thought for a bit, then said: “I don’t think there should be any problems.”
“You’re that confident?” Xiao Luo was astonished.
Su Li dropped the conversation. She lifted the teacup and took a sip.
“Right. How’s Liyue Media doing?” Xiao Luo suddenly thought of Lyon in America and couldn’t help but ask since Lyon was one of the shareholders of Liyue Media.
Su Li was a little stunned. She looked at Xiao Luo before replying, “It’s alright. We’ve already recruited about 20 to 30 celebrities and are in the process of training them.” After thinking for a bit, she lifted her head and asked, “What made you ask that all of a sudden?”
“Nothing much, just out of curiosity, thatif, I mean if, Lyon’s side withdraws their investment, how will that affect Liyue Media?” Xiao Luo’s expression looked unnatural.
Su Li’s eyebrows furrowed, and she felt like the question that this guy was asking was becoming weirder and weirder. How did the topic change to Lyon all of a sudden?
“There are no problems with the funds. Even if Lyon withdraws his investment, it won’t affect Liyue Media too much. The reason why I let him have a share was so that in the future, with the influence of the Kennedy family from the West, we’ll have a better footing.”
“That’s true. If you’re planning to turn Liyue Media into an international entertainment company in the future, I’ll be sure to give you my full support. I might not be familiar with other families in America, but I’m sure the Michelle family will give me some face. If Liyue Media decides to enter the American market, I’m sure the Michelle family will be able to provide you with some help,” Xiao Luo said.
Su Li stared at him. “The Michelle family will show you some face?”
She was in disbelief.
“I guess so. I’ve worked a little with them before.” Xiao Luo raised his eyebrows and laughed.
You’ve worked with the Michelle family?
Su Li was starting to feel that Xiao Luo’s real identity was becoming more and more mysterious. If it was just Luo Ventures, and the boss of Jin Clinic, how was it possible for them to have worked with the Michelle family, one of the four biggest families in America? There was absolutely no relation between both parties. What was his identity? What was it that allowed Xiao Luo to establish some sort of relationship with the Michelle family?
Although she really wanted to know, she didn’t ask him. She remembered that Xiao Luo once said that when the time is right, he would confess everything to her. Before that, she was afraid that it was pointless to ask him anything.
In the middle of the night, cool wind blew in from the balcony, bringing along a cozy feeling.
Su Li and Shen Qingyan occupied the bedroom, while the living room was left for Xiao Luo. Having the soft sofa as a bed didn’t feel that bad at all.
Xiao Luo couldn’t sleep. He lay on the sofa while watching the television. The female lead of this drama was Su Li. The only reason he endured this show was that it was an idol drama and the main storyline was about the male and female lead’s relationship. After witnessing a couple of kissing scenes, he had to hold himself back from smashing the television.
The bedroom door was gently pushed open, before it was gently closed again.
Su Li was wearing pink pajamas, and there were rose petals printed all over them. They looked cute on her.
“Still awake?” She walked over and placed a neatly folded sheet beside Xiao Luo.
“Looking at his girl kissing some other guy Do you think I’ll be able to fall asleep?” Xiao Luo wasn’t in the mood.
Su Li only realized now that Xiao Luo was actually watching a drama that she had acted in. She rolled her eyes at Xiao Luo. “It’s not like we really kissed. It’s the angle that created this effect that made it look like we kissed.”
“Angle? But I could clearly see that both of your lips were stuck to one another!” There was a huge knot in Xiao Luo’s heart.
“That was a substitute actor.”
Su Li realized that she needed to clearly explain it. “Besides, if there’s a need for me to act out a kissing scene with someone else, there’ll be a layer of partition in the middle, so will you stop being jealous!
