After getting out of the Luo’s Villa, Qin Haodong was in quite a good mood. He had been worried about the approval of the oral liquid at noon, and just then, it was merely in the evening when Luo Chengming had sent him a big gift.
Given the influence of the Luo Group in the pharmaceutical industry, they would surely get the approval of the Blood Revival Oral Liquid within five days. All Lin Momo had to concentrate on was to prepare to build the factory.
He knew that Luo Jin had answered all his requests that day because Nalan Wuxia was there. He said, “Thank you for all you’ve done today!”
Nalan Wuxia said, “Is this part of your plan? Using me as a lure to set up the idiot, Luo Mingcheng?”
Qin Haodong said, “I can never be that calculating. Luo Mingcheng and you approached me, and you happened to run into each other. Anyway, thank you for today, otherwise I would have had to spend a lot to get the approval!”
“What are you gonna do to pay me back?”
Nalan Wuxia’s fervent eyes stared at Qin Haodong.
“It’s your call. You name it. Anything except my body.”
“Hey! Then you’ll be the one taking advantage of me!” Nalan Wuxia said, “I have the simple request that you walk me home.”
“More walking? We’ve walked for the whole night!” Qin Haodong said with a bitter face. He couldn’t understand why the woman loved walking so much.
“What? Are you going to do it or not?”
She didn’t like walking that much, except walking with Qin Haodong.
“Of course I will. Anything for you!”
Qin Haodong took Nalan Wuxia’s hand and the two walked forward under the dim streetlights. Nalan Wuxia’s place was not that far from the Luo’s Villa, and they finished walking an hour later.
It was an apartment she rented. She said when seeing Qin Haodong trying to walk in with her, “I’m home now. You can go to yours.”
Qin Haodong said cheekily, “That was a long walk. Aren’t you gonna invite me to take a rest on your bed?”
Nalan Wuxia had taken the initiative for the whole night, but now Qin Haodong initiated to make fun of her, she felt ashamed and mad. Maybe that was how she was when in love.
“Go ahead. I’ve got things to finish. I’ll leave once it’s done.”
Qin Haodong said it in an upright way, but Nalan Wuxia heard it differently. Numerous ideas popped out in her mind.
‘Things to finish? What would that be? Does he mean that ‘thing’? How am I going to answer him if he proposes? Would he be mad if I turned him down? And would I be easy in his eyes if I said yes?’
Drowning in all kinds of thoughts, she took out the key and opened the door.
Qin Haodong entered the house, and then he took off his shoes. He grabbed Nalan Wuxia’s shoulders and looked at her flawless face. Then he lowered down his chin. Their faces were getting closer and closer.
Nalan Wuxia was so nervous because she was sure Qin Haodong was going to sleep with her. She was rubbing the corner of her clothes, not knowing whether to refuse or to accept him.
“Don’t!” She squeezed the word out of her mouth, faint like the buzz of a mosquito. Qin Haodong’s forehead was on hers. After a sudden banging in her mind, lots of things started to flow in.
Qin Haodong then stepped back. He had not kissed her, nor had he made any further moves. Nalan Wuxia felt so disappointed.
“This is my gift to you. It’s named Xuantian Sutra, much better than the one you’re cultivating now.”
Qin Haodong had selected the manual for the little fellow, but after her Suzaku Sacred Body was awakened, that feminine method no longer suited her. Therefore, Qin Haodong sent it to Nalan Wuxia telepathically.
Nalan Wuxia finally understood what Qin Haodong was doing. He was trying to teach her the technique, not to sleep with her.
“You take your time to cultivate. I’ll help you to lay down your foundation.”
Qin Haodong had Nalan Wuxia sit on her leg, and then he fed a big Spirit Culturing Elixir in her mouth. He helped her to cultivate the Xuantian Sutra.
Nalan Wuxia had basic cultivation knowledge. Under Qin Haodong’s guidance, she quickly finished the first Great Routine of the Xuantian Sutra, and her cultivation level rose from the sixth level of Overt Power to the ninth.
“Calm down and get ready to get through the bottleneck of the ninth level.”
After Qin Haodong said that, he fed another Foundation Core in Nalan Wuxia’s mouth. Then he started to help her to get through the bottleneck again.
With the assistance of the pills and Qin Haodong, 20 minutes later, Nalan Wuxia felt a boom in her mind. The Genuine Qi, which flowed like a creek before, turned into a roaring river. She had made the way out of the bottleneck of the ninth level of the Overt Power. Her aura had been promoted greatly, too, reaching into the realm of the Covert Power.
As a martial artist, she knew how hard it was to reach the realm of the Covert Power. She was surprised to see that she had reached it so soon under Qin Haodong’s assistance. She was thrilled.
Qin Haodong said, “OK. Try to be calm and solidify your cultivation, or everything we’ve done would go to waste.”
Nalan knew it, too. She tried hard to expel those distracting thoughts in her mind and tried to cultivate according to the Xuantian Sutra.
When she opened her eyes again, she had solidified her cultivation realm. Now she was an out and out powerhouse at the first level of the Covert Power.
By that time, the sky had already turned bright, and Qin Haodong had finally left.
Nalan Wuxia felt so sweet inside when the previous night flashed in her mind when they were together. She grabbed a robe and went into the bathroom.
Qin Haodong took a nap and went to the Lin’s Villa the next morning.
He arrived so early that the little fellow was still in bed. Qin Haodong kissed her cheek, dotingly.
Lin Momo asked, “Where were you last night? Why didn’t come back home?”
Qin Haodong smiled and said, “I visited someone, and got our approval done.”
Lin Momo said with surprise, “Really? I was just being worried about it. Who’s that friend? Why didn’t you say it yesterday?”
“Of course it’s real.” Qin Haodong said, “The man is Luo Jin of the Luo Group. He’ll lobby for our approval today.”
“You’re just trying to fool me again.”
The smile on Lin Momo’s face suddenly disappeared. She glared at Qin Haodong because she thought Qin Haodong was kidding her.
“I’m telling you the truth. Get all the papers ready when you are at work later. Luo Jin will go there to fetch them. He’ll get everything done within five days.”
Lin Momo said, “You’re just getting more and more ridiculous. Luo Jin is the chairman of the Luo Group. The Lin Group will be his rival in the pharmaceutical industry. We should feel lucky if he doesn’t set us up, why would he help us to get the approval?
“I’ve heard that new drugs have to go through the examination of the government of the city, of the province and of the state. We’ll get the approval no earlier than three months. Five days is impossible.”
Seeing how Lin Momo wouldn’t believe it, Qin Haodong had no other option but to tell her about all the kidnapping last night, skipping the part in which Nalan Wuxia and he were tied together in the sack.
“Now we had the crime evidence of Luo Jin and his son; they’ll try their best to get the procedures done for us. They’ve been working in the pharmaceutical industry for decades. They’re so well-connected that I can guarantee you they’ll get it done in five days,” said Qin Haodong as he took out the agreement and showed it to Lin Momo. Then he said, “See? The two of them signed on it.”
Lin Momo didn’t believe it until she saw the agreement. She hugged Qin Haodong with excitement and kissed him. Then she said, “That’s so great of you, Haodong. How did you settle that knotty problem? If you have any dates with any chicks tonight, you can just go for it. I won’t stop you.”
“Hey…” Qin Haodong felt awkward because she talked as if it were a sex trade.
“Mommy? Why are you kissing Papa without me?”
The little fellow had somehow been awakened and she was staring at the two.
Qin Haodong smiled and said, “She kissed me because Papa is cute, just like how Papa would kiss Tang Tang.”
After he said that, he held the little fellow in his arms and kissed her again.
After breakfast, they sent the little fellow to the kindergarten and then went to the Lin Group for work.
When they went upstairs, Luo Jin had already been waiting at the office door. He was even more anxious about the approval than Qin Haodong and Lin Momo, because if he couldn’t get in done within five days, his son would go to jail.
After getting the necessary papers, Luo Jin left in haste. Lin Momo and Liu Yage started to pick up the site for the factory. Qin Haodong strolled to the infirmary.
He received a few patients during the day, and had talks with Zhang Zhangjie, big ones and dirty ones. Soon it was time to get off work.
He promised Qi Wan’er to have dinner with her yesterday, and he wouldn’t dare to forget it, or the girl would kill him.
After work, Zhang Zhijie left. The door opened again, and Qi Wan’er went in.
She wore a long floral dress that day, which really accentuated her slim long figure. Her shoulder-length hair looked sophisticated. She looked pure, in a sexy way.
Seeing the gorgeous girl, Qin Haodong exclaimed to himself that he was truly blessed. Though he had failed the tribulation, he was living a second life at the moment, with the company of so many beautiful women.
“Quit staring and let’s go eat something, I’m starving.”
Qi Wan’er took Qin Haodong’s arms and they left the Lin Group.
“What do you want to eat?” Qin Haodong asked.
“I want seafood. Let’s go to the Riverside Tower. They’ve got the best seafood in town.”
It had never occurred to Qin Haodong that Qin Wan’er and Nalan Wuxia would bring out the same proposal, to the same place.
“What’s the matter? Is there any problem?” Qi Wan’er asked.
“No… No problem.”
Qin Haodong was familiar with the roads and soon they arrived at the Riverside Tower. The handsome man and the gorgeous woman caught all those people’s attention.
Qin Haodong was received by the same lobby manager from the day before. The tall guy hesitated for a while when he saw Qin Haodong. He was surprised, not by Qin Haodong going there for two consecutive days, but by the different women he brought every time. Additionally, the two women were both dreamy stunners in men’s eyes.
He was a man, and he envied that much.
“Any private rooms left?” Qin Haodong asked.
“Sorry, sir. All the private rooms had been taken today because there are too many guests.” The guy had a nice attitude and he was talkative. He continued, “Sir, our tables here are also quite fancy, especially those by the window. You can eat seafood while enjoying the beautiful view.”
Qin Haodong looked at Qi Wan’er. She pointed to a table by the window and said, “That would be nice. How about eating there?”
After she said that, she walked to the table by the window. Qin Haodong was going to follow her but the lobby manager grabbed his arm and whispered, “Dude, I’ll give you a 50% discount today, but you have to tell me how you hook up with all those hot stunning girlfriends, one for each day. Any secret ways?”
