If she couldn't even make use of such a good opportunity, then she didn't deserve to go beyond that. Therefore, it was time to launch an offensive. With a plan in place, Xinghe picked up her phone to call Mubai.
She couldn't wait to reveal all of this to him and discuss the details of the plan. Earlier, Xinghe had to take on the world on her own, she didn't want to, nor could she, rely on anyone, but things were different now, she at least had Mubai to aid her. He was someone who knew her well and could cooperate with her the best.
The call was picked up after two rings. Mubai's joyous voice came from the other end. "This is such a coincidence because I was just about to call you."
For some reason, Xinghe felt merry hearing that, perhaps great minds do think alike
"What are you doing at the moment?" Xinghe queried with a smile.
"Nothing serious, going to meet someone very important," Mubai replied with a hint of a smile in his voice. "What about you, what are you doing?"
"Nothing important too, but I just came up with some valuable information. Who is this important person you're meeting, am I disturbing you? If you're too busy, I can call back later."
"It will be rather busy, but I can always make time for you, so tell me whatever you wish to, my time is yours," Mubai said easily.
Xinghe didn't want to take up his time, "We can talk about this later, go finish your work first."
She knew he had more responsibility than just pandering to her, so she wouldn't demand that he focus his time on her fully. She wasn't a possessive lover. For her, a relationship was a give-and-take, only by respecting each other's privacy and responsibility could the relationship be balanced and have the space to grow. This was how Mubai treated Xinghe as well, he would never intervene in her business unless she asked for it or when the situation desperately called for it.
Mubai chuckled. "But the person I'm meeting is related to you. Are you home? Why don't you open your window, there might be a surprise?"
Xinghe was startled and took anticipatory yet cautious steps towards the window. She pulled open the curtain and saw Mubai standing down there on the front lawn. Their eyes met and Mubai's face split into a broad smile as he waved at her.
Xinghe asked with surprise, "Why are you here?"
"Didn't I tell you I was meeting someone important? Give me five seconds" Mubai said as he rushed into the mansion. Xinghe suddenly felt a rush of adrenaline surging through her blood. She went to open the door when it was pushed open from the outside. Mubai's impressive physical body framed the door and his soulful eyes stared into hers, however, there was a whiff of danger in the way he stared at her as well, like a predator looking on to his prey.
Xinghe's brain cried with alarm when he leaned in and pulled her into a deep hug!
His hands massaged the back of her neck to prevent her from moving away, and the next moment, she could feel him breathing directly into her mouth. She felt saturated by his manly presence.
Mubai was kissing her deeply. She was shocked by the sudden kiss and grabbed at his clothes out of shock but she slowly relaxed. However, her heart was racing, and her brain was fogging up like a car window during cold weather
Mubai kissed her without reservation, and Xinghe had lost her ability to think. She was like a willing putty in his arms.
