WARNING: The part in the car after the party of the chapter might be too hot aka sexual for some folks 🙂 lol
Xu Xu gave the impression that she’s a person who doesn’t pay attention to her clothing style. The invariable dress suit at work and casual sportswear outside of work, other than that, she never wore any makeup along with the indifferent expression on her face, all the more to made her look simple and plain.
But in fact, Xu Xu was actually very tedious about her clothing. However, she only wore the style that “she deemed to be the appropriate style for her”.
Love me if you dare.
This is actually the novel that I read before When a Snail loves by Ding Mo. The reason why I picked When a Snail Loves instead of When He comes, Close Your Eyes is because I like the female lead in WASL a tad better. I’m not saying Yao Yao in WHCCYE is not a great but I guess Xu Xu is just more of my preference.
The first day of vacation.
Under the fresh night and soft starlight, Ji Bai was relaxingly sitting on his balcony in his house and sipped the fragrant tea then took out his cell phone to call Zhao Han.
“Boss, what’s wrong?” Zhao received his call, ready for combat by habit.
Ji Bai: “Nothing, just wanted to find time to eat with you within these two days.”
“Well..” Zhao Han relaxed his tone: “How about tomorrow?”
Ji Bai: “What about the day after tomorrow?”
Early in the morning, with a gloomy sky and chilly air, Xu Xu was driving on the empty road.
Yesterday Ji Bai said the morning exercise would resume a few days later. She thought that she would be able to rest comfortably. Surprisingly, after the case ended, the biological clock on routine, once again, she automatically opened her eyes at five this morning, wide awake.
Just go with the flow.
Like other prestigious families, among the family members, there was a balance of power, emotions, and interests. This balance wasn’t apparent, but from year to year, everyone had their own roles.
Ye Lan was the one who set the rules.
Ye Qiang had always wanted to become the person to maintain the balance, but he was powerless.
Ye Xiao, outwardly arrogant, but in fact, faithfully obeyed.
The trees’ shadow was swaying outside the window, the bright villa was extremely quiet. Xu Xu looked up to see Ji Bai’s dark black eyes, she slowly said: “Firstly, according to the latest forensic results, Zi Xi died in the time frame from 9 to 11 o’clock. Images from the surveillance cameras on the road showed that Zhang Shiyong arrived at the villa at 12 o’clock, so he isn’t the perpetrator. Based on the content of the text message and the clothes he didn’t manage to destroy, his statement can be trustworthy, Zhang Shiyong really was lured to the villa.
Seeing Ji Bai and Xu Xu once again, Qiao Shi was less tense, though she still showed traces of caution in her eyes.
Ji Bai handed her a cigarette, and she whispered: “Thank you.” The finger holding the cigarette was trembling a little.
“The confession before was too brief, I hope you cooperate, tell us in more detail what happened that night.” Ji Bai spoke.
Ye Qiao lifted her swollen eyes: “I don’t have anything else to say, what I remember, I’ve already confessed it.”
“Xu Xu, only my girlfriend has the right to control me, my apprentice cannot.” Finishing the sentence, Ji Bai naturally stared at her.
Xu Xu also looked at him, she replied directly: “I don’t want to control you.”
Seeing her pure and sparkling eyes, Ji Bai felt stuffed in his chest. She had always been outspoken, to say it like that means she doesn’t have the slightest interest in him.
The first person that Xu Xu and Ji Bai were meeting in the afternoon was the second son-in-law Wu Xie. He was responsible for the company’s beverage business.
In the refined and elegantly decorated office, Wu Tse was sitting opposite to them, with a calm demeanor. He’s thirty-seven this year but still looks young as if only little older than thirty years old.
“What can I do for you?” Wu Tse smiled politely but distantly.
Yip’s headquarter was located in the heart of Central Business District. Within the magnificent office buildings, the dark gray tall skyscraper seems grand and striking.
To avoid alerting them, Ji Bai hadn’t come with many people today. He, Xu Xu, and officer Wu waited at an elegant reception room for a moment, when the door is opened, Yao Meng smiled and came together with a reception staff.
