“No matter how much I look at both of you, you don’t look like siblings,” Shen Jing commented doubtfully. Gu Jingman was obviously born with an exceptional background. In terms of looks and disposition, she was extraordinary and was definitely from a noble family. However, she couldn’t see any fine disposition or character in Mo Wen. He was just a normal student with no connection to a noble family.
“Whether or not we are siblings, it’s not by looks,” Mo Wen uttered with an unnatural smile.
“Hmph!” Shen Jing stared hard at Mo Wen and refused to talk to him. However, whatever Gu Jingman said was true. She had to admit that he was indeed very popular with the ladies. Regardless of Gu Jingman or Qin Xiaoyou, both were rare beauties who were related to Mo Wen in some way.
After that, Shen Jing and Mo Wen were holding each other’s hands as they wandered around the deck leisurely, enjoying the delicious food and appreciating the beautiful night scene at sea. Their moods were especially good.
They returned to their room before the party ended.
Mo Wen wandered around the room before commenting in an exaggerated way, “Wifey, there seems to be only one bathtub in the room.”
“There are obviously two of them. You need me to find them for you?” Shen Jing was taking out her clothes from the wardrobe while replying to Mo Wen without even turning her head. She was about to take a bath while Mo Wen wanted to do the same. She offered to let him bathe first, but he refused. After idling for a long time, he suggested they take a bath together.
She agreed! But it could only be done in different bathrooms. There were two bathrooms in the suite, so each could have one without any complication.
“It’s better for us to take a bath in one bathroom. Only a bath… It could save a lot of water…” Mo Wen cajoled with a faint laugh while cursing the designers secretly for having a problem with their brains putting two bathrooms in a room. Don’t they know how to conserve and save? If I were the boss of the cruise ship, I would surely fire the designer.
“If you think it’s too wasteful to use the hot water onboard the ship, you may jump into the sea to take a bath.” Shen Jing found Mo Wen’s clothes in the wardrobe and threw them at his back before walking straight into the bathroom. Just now she had clearly separated out the bathrooms, one for her, and one for him. They wouldn’t cross each other’s territory.
“Dearest wifey…” Mo Wen said in a pitiful manner.
“No ne-go-ti-a-tion,” Shen Jing said with a pause at every syllable. Then, she blushed before slamming the bathroom door shut behind her.
When Mo Wen came out of his bathroom, Shen Jing was still in her bathroom with the sounds of the water constantly reverberating.
“Women are so wasteful with water. Don’t they know how to conserve…” Mo Wen muttered as his eyes roved. He intended to climb onto the bed to wait for Shen Jing. However, a knock at the door suddenly resounded.
“Who is it?” Mo Wen got out of bed impatiently and furrowed his brows as he opened the door. A woman stood outside the door. She folded her arms and looked askance at Mo Wen as if Mo Wen owed her a lot of money. She was none other than Zheng Shuanshuang.
“What’s the matter?” Mo Wen asked as he raised his brows. This woman can’t be looking for trouble at this time, right?
“Lady Boss is looking for you.” Zheng Shuangshuang snorted coldly. She left him with this statement before walking away proudly, as she refused to give Mo Wen an extra look. If Lady Boss hadn’t asked her to look for Mo Wen, she wouldn’t have bothered to do it.
After that, what she heard was not the footsteps of Mo Wen behind her but the loud slamming sound of the door. Zheng Shuangshuang was stunned as she turned around. There was no one in the corridor. Mo Wen absolutely hadn’t followed her.
“Mo Wen, you get out here!” Zheng Shuangshuang was furious as she walked back to the door angrily and banged on the door violently. I promised the Lady Boss I would not teach him a lesson, but he actually doesn’t appreciate my kindness.
The door opened and Mo Wen threatened as he leaned against the door frame lazily, “If you disturb my rest again, believe it or not, I will throw you into the sea.”
“Don’t you dare!” Zheng Shuangshuang’s face was red with rage. This guy actually dares to talk to me in this way!?
“Are you looking for Mo Wen?” Shen Jing walked out of the bathroom with a towel wrapped around her. She looked curiously at the woman at the door. She recognized this woman who seemed to have some conflict with Mo Wen.
“Ghosts will look for him. My Lady Boss is looking for him…” As she was halfway through the sentence, Zheng Shuangshuang realized something was wrong. This is like cursing Lady Boss.
“I don’t know your Lady Boss. If she intends to look for me, ask her to come here herself,” Mo Wen said indifferently.
“Who’s your Lady Boss?” Shen Jing asked curiously.
“Gu Jingman. The managing director of the Fei Ying Group, Miss Gu.” Zheng Shuangshuang replied proudly. Those people with some status and position in Charm City would know the Fei Ying Group had the backing of the underworld, so normal people wouldn’t dare to offend them.
“Gu Jingman!” Mo Wen was stunned. This Zheng Shuangshuang was actually related to Gu Jingman. He hadn’t known previously that Gu Jingman was actually her Lady Boss.
“Hmph. It is Miss Gu. You’d better go with me.” Zheng Shuangshuang snorted coldly. I don’t understand why the Lady Boss has to look for this bastard.
It’s midnight, why is Gu Jingman looking for me? Mo Wen looked towards Shen Jing.
Shen Jing looked askance at Mo Wen and said softly, “Since your sister is looking for you, why are you looking at me? Go then.”
Mo Wen nodded and followed Zheng Shuangshuang out of the room. “Lead the way. Why is she looking for me?”
“You are Lady Boss’ brother?” Zheng Shuangshuang’s eyes widened as she looked at Mo Wen in shock. She had followed the Lady Boss for six or seven years, but she had never heard that she had such a brother. Previously, the Lady Boss hadn’t told her, so she would never expect this bastard to have this relationship with her Lady Boss.
Now that the chance for revenge was gone, Zheng Shuangshuang was a bit bitter and angry. That’s why the Lady Boss didn’t let me teach this bastard a lesson.
Gu Jingman stayed in a luxurious suite, so its environment was way better than a normal room’s. It was like a small villa and was situated on the top level of the Sword of the Seas.
“Lady Boss, I have brought Mo Wen here.” Zheng Shuangshuang stood outside the door and knocked twice. Then, she pushed the door open and walked in. Mo Wen followed behind her unhurriedly.
At this time, Gu Jingman was sitting on the sofa in the hall with a glass of red wine in her hand while quietly waiting for Mo Wen.
“Brother, it’s been a long time. Aren’t you happy to see your sister?” Gu Jingman stood up, smiling, and poured a glass of red wine for Mo Wen.
“It’s midnight. Why does sister look for me? Are you thinking of keeping me here tonight?” Mo Wen said as his lips curled into an evil smile. Previously, Gu Jingman had been sowing discord in front of Shen Jing intentionally. He had not forgotten this grudge.
The corner of Zheng Shuangshuang’s mouth twitched, and she cursed this bastard secretly as he was crazy for being daring enough to harass her Lady Boss sexually.
“Listen to what you are saying. If you want to stay overnight here, do you need to be invited by your sister? Your sister’s house is also your house. You can stay anytime you want.” Gu Jingman continued smiling and pulled Mo Wen intimately to sit down. With simply a few words, the romantic atmosphere was gone without a trace as if it was indeed a sister interacting with her brother.
“Why are you looking for me? Speak.” Mo Wen sat down and got straight to the point. He didn’t mention the revenge on the previous grudge. Gu Jingman was not someone who was easy to deal with. He might not be a match in terms of bickering. The possible way to defeat Gu Jingman was to immediately use shameless ways.
Gu Jingman had asked him over in the middle of the night, so there must be something going on.
“Brother, you know me so well,” Gu Jingman said, smiling.
“It’s fine to ask me for help. However, I am the kind of person who draws a clean line between friendship and other matters. Sister doesn’t have to ask if there isn’t any benefit for me in the matter.”
Before Gu Jingman was able to talk about the matter, Mo Wen had stated his condition immediately without beating around the bush. He looked as if she didn’t need to look for him. That was for putting him at a disadvantage intentionally just now by sowing discord between him and Shen Jing.
Zheng Shuangshuang stared at Mo Wen sternly. This bastard actually dares to talk to the Lady Boss in this manner. Who does he think he is? It is his fortune that he is asked to help. She didn’t understand why the Lady Boss would ask this bastard for help. They could have handled everything themselves and didn’t have to look to such a timid junior for help.
“You are such an ungrateful person. You are negotiating terms when your sister is asking for a small favor?” Gu Jingman looked dismal.
“If sister is unable to give me any good terms, I don’t want to waste sister’s time.” Mo Wen put the wine glass on the table and looked as if he was ready to leave.
“Don’t you dare!” Gu Jingman stared fiercely, attempting to use her sister’s power to subdue Mo Wen. However, when she saw that Mo Wen had absolutely no reaction, her imposing manner instantly evaporated before she said pitifully, “What do you want then? You also know that your sister doesn’t have anything valuable and couldn’t give you anything much, unless you want this virgin body which is retained…”
Without waiting for Gu Jingman to finish her speech, Mo Wen suddenly shook his head like rattle-drum. “Forget it. We don’t need to discuss it further… Please don’t give yourself to me. I don’t want any remuneration from you, alright?”
“Idiot, you are infuriating me on purpose.” Gu Jingman grabbed a cushion and threw it at Mo Wen while scolding him with a smile.
Zheng Shuangshuang was speechless and nearly fainted. This pair of siblings was simply too weird!
“Shuangshuang, give us a moment,” said Gu Jingman.
Zheng Shuangshuang pouted her lips before leaving reluctantly.
“Sister indeed met with a bit of trouble but with you around, there shouldn’t be much of a problem.” Gu Jingman looked at Mo Wen with a grin. She also hadn’t expected to see Mo Wen aboard the ship. It was simply too lucky. With Mo Wen’s ability, if he participated in the underground fight, the Yamaguchi-gumi would most likely have no chance of winning.
“What is it? Tell me in detail,” Mo Wen asked with much interest. He had been aboard the Sword of the Seas for merely a day, yet he encountered many unusual things such as meeting that foreign woman unintentionally while sunbathing at the deck this afternoon. It looked like a simple cruise ship, but it was not as simple as its façade.
Gu Jingman told him about the conflict with the Yamaguchi-gumi of Fu Sang Country with emphasis on the importance of the matter and that they couldn’t be defeated easily.
After Mo Wen heard her recount of the matter, he rolled his eyes at Gu Jingman. “Why are there problems wherever you go? Someone will take care of those matters. Why are you, a woman, involved in the underworld?” It turned out that it was merely a fight among the influences in the underworld, so he was not very interested in the matter.
Gu Jingman put her hands on her waist and instantly disagreed. “What do you mean? What about the underworld? The underworld can’t love the country and can’t think for the country? Many things cannot be resolved without the underworld.” He actually looks down on me and my occupation.
