My Wife is My Life! - Chapter 231
Before she could finish speaking, Lu Lixing’s hand covered her mouth.
Ji Qingqing grabbed his hand, intending to pull it away. “Mm mhm mmh…”
Lu Lixing’s hand felt warm and a little itchy. Reaching out his other hand, he clamped down her hands. His eyes narrowed slightly. “You want to partner up with another male?”
Ji Qingqing answered with a muffled voice and nodded her head strongly.
Lu Lixing’s brow furrowed. His expression darkened and he gritted his teeth. “Ji Qingqing!”
Ji Qingqing suddenly broke free of the hand that was covering her mouth. She glared at him indignantly. “Why can’t I?”
Seeing Ji Qingqing’s fierce-looking appearance as she glared at him, Lu Lixing thought, That mouth of hers really is…
All of a sudden, Lu Lixing laughed. It was an exasperated laugh.
“You thought that if I didn’t come, you would still be able to attend?”
Ji Qingqing grew irritated and retorted back. “Mr. Lu has both money and power. This commoner gives you my respect.”
“How have I spoken inappropriately? One word from Mr. Lu could make me withdraw from this program; why would I dare to offend you? After all, you’re my sponsor!”
Ji Qingqing looked at Lu Lixing’s expression and thought, It’s your fault for lying to me yesterday! Making me angry on purpose!
As he heard Ji Qingqing’s glib remarks and saw how pleased she was with herself, Lu Lixing felt like teasing her and leaned closer.
Before she could react, Lu Lixing lifted her up and kicked open the room door.
“Lu Lixing, what are you doing? Put me down…” Ji Qingqing immediately panicked.
However, moments after entering the room, Lu Lixing remained rooted at the same spot. He narrowed his eyes and stared at a corner of the room.
Ji Qingqing glanced at his face which had instantly darkened and felt that the air didn’t seem right. She turned around to take a look at what he was staring at.
Wen Rou was there, standing awkwardly in front of the bed. The awkwardness made her shift her shocked gaze away from the two of them and she did not know where she should look.
She had arrived at the room before Ji Qingqing and Lu Lixing came in and at the same time, she also heard the entire conversation between the two of them. They were right beside the door and the door wasn’t even closed; how could she not hear them? She gloomily thought of her impending fate and spent a long time examining the room’s surroundings for a long while, desperately wanting to hide herself. However, she didn’t succeed in finding a place that could hide her.
Under both of their gazes, Wen Rou had no choice but to steel herself and answer nervously, “Uh… Sister Qingqing, I’ve placed your clothes in the wardrobe and the other miscellaneous items have all been sorted and arranged. If… if there’s nothing else, I’ll be heading out first.”
Wen Rou didn’t even dare to raise her head under Lu Lixing’s pressure-filled stare. She almost wanted to cry and feared that she would be ‘murdered by President Lu to keep her mouth shut.’
In the first place, it wasn’t her intention to overhear any of this and all the more so witness all this, okay?
Do all the current rich people date like this?
She really couldn’t wrap her mind around those rich people’s world.
Ji Qingqing’s expression grew even more awkward. She stepped down from Lu Lixing’s arms and tidied up her hair. Clearing her throat, she put up a composed front and replied, “Thank you for your hard work. You can leave first.”
Relieved that she could finally escape the situation, Wen Rou bolted out of the room like a rabbit.
As the sound of the door closing was heard, Ji Qingqing turned and glared at Lu Lixing. “Let me make things clear, I sell my talents but not myself!”
