Gao Ran then began spilling the beans to Zhu Lingling. She listened intently, her heart pounding as the story got more and more intense, and she finally let out a sigh of relief when she heard that Huo Mian turned out okay.
“Oh my gosh, can you just tell me the results first next time? It scared the shit out of me.” Zhu Lingling sighed again as she gulped down a cup of water.
“Huo Mian is so damn smart. It was basically one weak girl against nine strong guys.”
“Haven’t you heard that she’s a genius? She invented her own poison, that’s pretty darn incredible…”
“That wasn’t poison, I checked. It was a kind of super anesthesia with some food coloring. Haha, pretty smart of her, no wonder Qin Chu digs her so much.”
“So what now, you’re falling for her too?” Zhu Lingling intentionally joked.
“Oh no. A woman like her is too much for my slow brain. She and Qin Chu can exchange blows, but I’m staying out of it.”
“True. How lucky are you to be able to become the police captain with a slow brain like yours? You must have stepped on some really nice dog sh*t.”
“Hey, man, can’t you say anything nice?”
“I always talk like that, you should get used to it…” Zhu Lingling said in all seriousness.
“You flying tomorrow?”
“Nope, I’m off.”
“Oh. Well. I heard that um, World of Warcraft is out in theaters… Do you want to go watch it?”
Back when they were still in school, Gao Ran remembered that he and Zhu Lingling both liked playing World of Warcraft. Initially, Huo Mian and Qin Chu played it as well. But then they leveled up too fast and was through with all the skills. They then suspended their accounts and moved onto other games, leaving him and Zhu Lingling still trying to figure out the basics…
“Not really. Just because I used to play it doesn’t mean I have to watch the movie. I want to go watch Finding Nemo 2 though, I really like that little fish,” Zhu Lingling replied casually. / update by box novel.com
“Oh. Our bureau gives really cheap gifts. They don’t give money or anything, but they did give me some movie tickets. It would be a waste if I don’t use it.”
“You can give them to me! I will take my parents, my cousins, and my nephews.”
Gao Ran paused for a couple seconds, not knowing what to say. “I only have two tickets left!” Suddenly, he said with spite.
“I guess I can only go and watch it with Huo Mian then.” Zhu Lingling sighed, leaving Gao Ran speechless once more.
“Isn’t Huo Mian supposed to go with Qin Chu? Do you really want to be a third-wheel that badly?” Gao Ran’s face twitched; he couldn’t possibly give any more hints.
“So who should I go with? I can’t possibly go with you!”
“What’s wrong with going with me?” Gao Ran’s tone dropped slightly, sounding a little hurt.
“Isn’t it weird for a big man like you to watch Finding Nemo?”
“Don’t worry, I will pretend to be your dad. A father taking his daughter out, how about that?”
“Screw you!” Zhu Lingling yelled as she realized that she walked right into his trap. Gao Ran, on the other end, was dying of laughter…
“Alright, it is settled then. Call me when Finding Nemo is in theaters. Night!”
“Hey!” Gao Ran hung up the phone before Zhu Lingling could say anything else.
Zhu Lingling wanted to send Huo Mian a WeChat message to ask if things were okay. However, it was getting late, so Zhu Lingling went back to sleep.
Huo Mian laid on her bed, half drifting to sleep. Gao Ran had already told her that all nine mobsters were arrested. They also confessed who their employer was, but Gao Ran was unable to make the arrest without obvious evidence, especially with the employer’s special identity. A simple he-said-she-said was not enough…
Huo Mian only calmly replied that she would take care of it.
– Two in the Morning –
Huo Mian was fast asleep by the time Qin Chu had washed up and was getting ready for bed. He kissed her gently on the cheek with spilling affection, pulled her close to him and went to sleep.
– In the Morning –
“When did you come home, honey?”
“It was late, so I didn’t wake you.”
“Okay. Well, I won’t be eating breakfast, I’m running late for work.” Huo Mian quickly got ready and began heading out.
“Mian, I’ll drive you.”
“No, I can drive myself…”
“I’ve already sent your car for repair. It’s damaged pretty badly.” Qin Chu had a chance to take a look at Huo Mian’s car as he parked in the garage. It looked rather brutal.
“Did something happen yesterday?” Qin Chu asked nonchalantly as he sipped his tea.
