Translator: Noodletown Translated Editor: Noodletown Translated
Time flew by and soon it was time to get off work.
Just as Qingfeng Li got ready to leave, his phone started ringing. He picked up his phone and saw that it was Jiaojiao Liu who was calling.
"Jiaojiao, were you looking for me?" Qingfeng Li asked through the phone.
"Brother-in-law, it's been days since you visited my sister. I'm incredibly displeased." Jiaojiao Liu angrily responded.
Jiaojaio Liu had been angry for the past two days. Her sister, despite being pregnant, had lost weight in the past few days because of Qingfeng Li.
Qingfeng Li was not very happy but what could he do, Jiaojiao was Ruyan Liu's sister after all. And she did have the right to be angry.
"Jiaojiao, I will go visit Ruyan tonight." Qingfeng Li comforted her through the phone.
After hearing his response, Jiaojiao Liu hung up the phone in satisfaction.
Qingfeng Li walked out from the company, stopped a cab and directed it to the supermarket. There he bought a few things for Ruyan Liu.
It was a Sunday, and therefore, there were a lot of people at Walmart.
The number of people at the place provided a perfect opportunity for thieves.
In the crowd stood a suspicious looking man, his eyes staring at a girl. This man was around 20 years old, skinny and not too tall, only about 150cm and did not stand out much in the crowd.
His fingers though skinny, yet were very long. And between his fingers was a pair of silver white tweezers.
With his tweezers, he reached towards the pocket of the girl that he had been staring at. With lightning speed, he grabbed the phone in the girl's pocket and put it in his own.
The entire process was completed in a matter of seconds. And the long-haired girl did not notice one bit as she continued with her conversation with the short haired girl next to her.
"Eh, Isn't that Xiaoman Lu?" Qingfeng Li arrived just in time to see that the long-haired girl who had her phone stolen was Xiaoman Lu.
Since it was Xiaoman Lu, Qingfeng Li naturally decided to call. This girl had helped give him a massage before, and their relationship was also quite questionable.
Just as the skinny man put the phone in his pocket and got ready to leave, Qingfeng Li stopped him in his path.
A flash of alertness crossed his eyes, he quickly stepped towards the left but Qingfeng Li stopped to his left. As he tried to walk towards the right, Qingfeng Li also followed and stopped to his right. Either way, Qingfeng Li was not letting him leave.
"Why are you blocking me, move aside." The skinny man fiercely spoke out.
Qingfeng Li smiled and said, "Why do you think I'm stopping you?"
The two speaks out a little too loud thus Xiaoman Lu and the short haired girl notices them.
Xiaoman Lu turned her head and noticed Qingfeng Li. She was pleasantly surprised by her finding out and happily spoke out, "Big brother Li, why are you here?"
Since she hadn't seen him in so long, she was very happy to see Qingfeng Li. She had been wanting to go to the Ice Snow Corporation to find him but to see him at the supermarket today was a very good surprise for her.
Xiaoman Lu thought that it might be fate for them to have met at the supermarket. Her face turned red and her heartbeat sped up with anticipation.
"Xiaoman, long time no see. How have you been?" Qingfeng Li responded to her.
"Brother Li, I've been pretty well. How come you haven't been to our Jade Finger Emperor Spa Center lately?"
"Xiaoman, I've been super busy lately so I didn't have much time to go visit."
"Big brother Li, I was waiting for you for so long."
"Xiaoman, as soon as I have time I will go visit." Qingfeng Li comforted.
As they continued their conversation, the skinny man moved his body and started preparing to escape. Just as he shifted his body to escape, Qingfeng Li quickly moved his foot to the left and stopped the man in his tracks.
"Kiddo, you better move aside. I'm not one to mess with."
"I'll let you move but not before you hand out the phone that you just stole."
"I didn't steal any phones. Stop accusing the innocent." The man's face changed with his accusation and loudly responded.
"Eh, where'd my phone go?" Xiaoman Lu suddenly spoke out as she realized that her phone had disappeared.
"Xiaoman, no need to search your pockets, your phone had been stolen by the skinny man." Qingfeng Li pointed at the man.
Xiaoman Lu suddenly turned her eyes towards the man. Upon being examined, the man stepped back in alertness and loudly spoke out, "What are you looking at me for? Your phone wasn't stolen by me."
Qingfeng Li quickly stepped towards the man and reached for his pocket.
He turned his body rapidly in response but Qingfeng Li reached out and grabbed onto the man who tried to escape.
"You, you, you. You, let go of me!" The man's face turned bright red as he stuttered out.
His neck had been grabbed tightly by Qingfeng Li making it difficult for him to breathe.
Qingfeng Li ignored the man and reaches into his pocket and pulls out the phone.
"Xiaoman Lu, this is your phone right?" He handed out the phone and asked.
"Big brother Li, that is my phone." Xiaoman Lu happily replied. She did not expect to find her lost phone in the pockets of the skinny man.
Even though the phone itself was not worth much, the information contained within it was priceless to her. It contained her studying material collected over her years of studying.
Having been found out, the thief's face turned pale white. He knew that he was doomed.
Thieves were most scared of being exposed on the spot. The thief had been stealing things for years but it was the first time that he had been caught red-handed.
To prevent him from escaping, Qingfeng Li broke one of the thief's legs and handed him over to the security guard.
"Big brother Li, thank you for today. If not for you, my phone would have been lost for sure." Xiaoman Lu spoke out with gratitude, her face turned red in the process.
"Xiaoman, we're friends. Of course I would help you. No need to thank me." Qingfeng Li smiled in reply.
