Yan Rusheng’s phone began to receive several incoming texts.
He stretched his hand and clicked on the texts. Attached on it were several pictures, and they were all from surveillance cameras.
All were taken at the Capital City’s airport lobby.
The final text read, ‘We could not identify the person. Too well-disguised.’
They could not identify the person?
Yan Rusheng sneered.
Su Yue had already fallen asleep but Xuxu kept tossing and turning. She was worried about Yan Rusheng, and she glanced at the time on her phone.
“Why aren’t you back yet?”
It was almost three hours since he left the house.
Xuxu muttered to herself, but for fear of waking up Su Yue, she got up. She treaded lightly across the room.
Then she latched the door carefully after her and walked to the sofa. Unconsciously, she turned on the TV.
She clearly didn’t have the intention of watching TV. The next second, she typed on her phone.
“Why aren’t you back yet?”
To Xuxu’s surprise, Yan Rusheng immediately returned her call. She excitedly picked it up. “When are you coming back?”
Yan Rusheng chuckled softly on the other line. “You’re really opening the door for me?”
Perhaps it was the time of the night, but his cheerful voice sounded exceedingly gentle and pleasant that it made Xuxu’s heart tingle. And unconsciously, she began to talk in a gentle voice that seemed like she was playfully pouting. “Be serious.”
Yan Rusheng quipped, “I’m back at your door. Come out now.”
Xuxu glanced at the door, startled. Without a moment of hesitation, she rose and bolted for the door.
A towering and massive figure was already standing outside. She heaved a sigh of relief to ease her pounding heart.
She leaned against the door frame and beamed. “I thought someone had already abducted you.”
Yan Rusheng was holding a bag while he stuffed the other hand in his pocket. He took a step towards Xuxu and casually leaned against the wall. They stood barely a footstep apart.
He bent his head and a seductive smile played around his mouth. He drawled, “My wife, how much do you think I’m worth based on my looks?”
Xuxu could distinctly feel Yan Rusheng’s breath and her face flushed. She moved her eyes away from his beguiling eyes and curtly said, “One yuan.”
Yan Rusheng grinned as he offered her his palm. “Give me one yuan, and I’ll follow you to your bed.”
“Scram.” Xuxu glared at Yan Rusheng as she lifted an eyebrow to threaten him. “Seems like that kick wasn’t painful enough.”
Yan Rusheng’s eyes widened in fear, and he steered their conversation out of dangerous waters. “I bought supper for you.”
He lifted the bag to pass to Xuxu.
Xuxu eyed the bag and recognized that it was from a famous porridge chain in the Capital City. She received the bag and asked, “How did you know I was still awake?”
Yan Rusheng mischievously smiled. “I knew you were thinking of me. How would you be able to sleep?”
“Narcissistic fellow!” Xuxu hit Yan Rusheng in the chest. She held on to the doorknob as she took a step backward. “Go and sleep right now, bye!”
She was about to slam the door.
Yan Rusheng hurriedly grabbed the door to stop her. “Wife, can’t you just let me hug you?”
With a pleading and pitiful expression.
“No way, scram now!” Xuxu aimed a kick at him.
But Yan Rusheng was more observant and agile this time around, and he successfully dodged her leg. He frowned and grumbled, “Callous woman. Will it benefit you if I’m crippled? Huh?”
