When Rose walked out of the house and noticed the figure standing outside, she instantly stopped moving. She couldnt help but blink her eyes repeatedly to make sure she wasnt dreaming.
Outside the old-fashioned, western-style, giant front gate made of steel, there stood a tall and slim lady wearing a white undershirt and a light blue outer coat coupled with a light brown skirt. The black stockings she wore revealed her flawless legs, while her posture made her look like a magnolia flower shining in the sunlight.
Of course, if it wasnt for her impeccable but cold face, Rose might feel admiration instead of anxiety.
Why did she come over? Rose thought.
Although they stayed next to each other, Roses heartbeat quickened when Lin Ruoxi rang her doorbell.
Honestly speaking, Rose was less anxious even if there were hundreds of bloodthirsty men with knives standing at her door.
No matter what, Rose wasnt a coward. She walked forward and smilingly opened the gate. Looking at Lin Ruoxis crystal-clear eyes, Rose made a gesture to invite her inside. Im glad that youre here, although Im a little surprised.
Lin Ruoxi hummed in acknowledgement before walking inside and following Rose into the house, as if she was in contemplation.
I only found out about it not long ago.
Hmm? Rose looked at Lin Ruoxi.
I said I only discovered that youre my neighbor recently. Qianni didnt tell me about it, Lin Ruoxi said.
Rose was slightly stunned. She didnt expect Lin Ruoxi to say something so ordinary.
Smiling, Rose replied, Oh, Qianni hadnt mention it as well. Why do I feel that Qianni is hiding it from us intentionally?
Lin Ruoxi shook her head. That isnt the case. Im sure she just forgot about it. Shes very busy these days. The company is facing some issues, and shes a really serious person. Shes been helping me out all this time.
Rose was startled slightly at her words. She was merely joking, but Lin Ruoxi answered her questions so strictly and honestly.
Shes such a weird woman, Rose thought. However, the initial uneasiness had completely dispersed.
When they walked to the living hall, Lin Ruoxi opened her mouth slightly in shock when she saw the breakfast on the table. I didnt know you were having breakfast. Im really sorry for disturbing you.
Rose smiled and answered, Dont be, its nothing. Unlike you, I dont work from nine to five nor do I manage a huge public company. Im generally very free, I can eat and sleep whenever I want. Im glad enough that youre willing to come over. Why would I be bothered because of the breakfast?
This is damaging to the body. We need to discipline ourselves when it comes to work and rest, Lin Ruoxi replied seriously. Although I often stay up late, it is for your own good to stick to a regular schedule.
Rose was once again astonished. She couldnt figure out the logic in Lin Ruoxis speech. Why is she giving me advice now?
It was quite laughable actually that the first person who was concerned about her working pattern wasnt her parents, seniors, relatives, or even her lover, but the woman in front of her who was supposed to hate her the most.
Lin Ruoxi thought Rose was displeased when Rose looked at her with a strange gaze. She sighed, Did I cross any boundaries? Im not trying to imply anything. Im actually jealous of your freedom.
Really? But why do I always feel that I should be jealous of you instead? Rose said softly before mocking herself. She said to Lin Ruoxi, Please have a seat. Im not in a rush. Ill make you a cup of red tea.
Lin Ruoxi nodded, but didnt sit down immediately. She slowly walked around in Roses spacious living hall, appreciating the sculptures and oil paintings found there.
The ground floor of the house was decorated differently in different sections. There were armors of European knights in the Middle Ages, oil paintings from the Romantic era, artworks by Impressionists, and some jade carvings.
When Rose delivered two cups of red tea to the coffee table, Lin Ruoxi sat down on the woven chair and said, Thank you.
Rose asked, Do you like them?
These oil paintings and sculptures. If theres something you like, Im more than happy to gift it to you, Rose said. Of course, Im not implying that you cant afford it yourself. I know that youre one of the wealthiest women in the world, but Im not a huge fan of these things. They make the house ghastly, so Ill give them to you if you like. As far as I know, some of them are the creations of well-known artists.
Lin Ruoxi seemed confused. Frowning, she asked, Why do you put them on display if you dislike them so?
Rose smiled as she answered, Im not the one who got them. Theyre my fathers collection.
Lin Ruoxi nodded and took a sip of the boiling-hot red tea. She hesitated for a bit before saying, I have heard of your other identity.
Rose found Lin Ruoxis shy look refreshing. The woman in front of her behaved like a little girl who was so innocent and clueless to the outside world. She looked nothing like the person behind a multinational corporate. When compared to Rose, Lin Ruoxi appeared more than ten years younger.
Dont put it that way. Im the head of an underground syndicate called Red Thorns Society, the largest gang in Zhonghai. To put it simply, I am what people call the boss of bad guys. Rose winked at Lin Ruoxi. You inherited the legacy of a businessman from your grandmother while I was influenced by my father.
It was the first time Lin Ruoxi heard about it. She felt slightly surprised. Uncle is one as well?
Rose chuckled. Yeap, hes even one of my enemies. But I sent him overseas after defeating him, so Im not interested in keeping the stuff he left here.
Lin Ruoxi found it hard to accept. She got rid of her own father? Theyre even enemies in the underworld?
However, Lin Ruoxi excelled in making rational analysis after all. Although she was surprised, she quickly got a clue or two. She asked, Those things are related to that man, arent they?
Rose sipped on her tea and stopped smiling. She nodded and said, Yeah, youre right. If it wasnt for him, I wouldve left this world long ago.
Coldness appeared in Lin Ruoxis eyes once again. Did Uncle
My father tried to kill me once, but he failed because Yang Chen intervened. He even got defeated by me at last. As a result, I became the only syndicate head in Zhonghai, Rose explained briefly.
Lin Ruoxis hands which were holding the porcelain cup shivered a bit. Rose made it sound insignificant, but Lin Ruoxi was sure that it was not the case, far from it.
The father wants to kill his own daughter? The daughter defeated her father and sent him abroad? What kind of twisted few years it must have been.
The man had single-handedly made the gorgeous woman the head of Zhonghais underground syndicate without his wifes knowledge. Lin Ruoxi felt rather bad in her heart. Being his wife, she had to make a deal to make him save Yu Lei International, but he had selflessly pushed the woman in front of her to where she was today.
However, Lin Ruoxi knew that it wasnt the time for her to get jealous, and she wasnt one to get jealous anyway.
Other than getting to know you officially, I actually came today to thank you for saving me, Lin Ruoxi said gently.
Dont thank me. Im doing it for myself as well, Rose said. Ill blame myself should anything happen to you. Ill be more sad if he is sad than if I were to die.
Lin Ruoxi held the tea cup forcefully with both her hands. Roses word were just like sharp needles poking her heart. Rose was indirectly telling her that she wouldnt take a step back from the relationship.
However, in fact, even if Rose hadnt made the confession, Lin Ruoxi knew that she would never give up.
Lin Ruoxi let out an exhausted smile when she thought about it. Lets not talk about him. We should talk about us. Do you know that my father tried to kill me as well? I was saved by that man, just as you have. But I have to say, I havent been through as much as you. Although I find it comical, were both people whom our family tried to kill.
Rose was stunned. The expression in her gaze changed repeatedly. At last, she sighed, I didnt realize you were suffering all this time as well.
Lin Ruoxi put down the tea cup and stretched her slender arm out to Rose. Smiling gently, she said, Nice to meet you.
Rose reached her arm out to shake her hand and felt rather warm. Me too.
Lin Ruoxi wasnt a talkative person. After saying what she had in mind, she stood up and said, I have to leave for work now, but please let us continue when I have the time in the future. We can even invite Qianni together.
Alright. Ill send you off. They behaved like old friends instead of a wife and a paramour of her husband.
When Lin Ruoxi walked out the living hall, Rose suddenly said, Take good care of yourself. Youre the woman who is going to be by his side the longest after all.
Lin Ruoxi stopped moving. However, she didnt say a word nor did she turn around. She continued walking away.
At this moment, at the courtyard shone upon by the warm sunlight, Lin Ruoxis figure was covered with a layer of thin golden light as she walked toward the gate. Arent you the one instead? she thought.
