Chapter 1286: I Want to Make You Stay (164)
“Xianxian, I’m done trying to knock some sense into you. Just forget it, stop being so obsessed and stubborn. It’s enough. Nick has already agreed to hire you and he had even given us so much money.”
“He’s so wealthy. Five million dollars is peanuts to him. Is his life worth just five million dollars? I know he can’t stand the sight of me now, but I still feel that I deserve more credit than An Xiaoning does. If it weren’t for me, he would have died long ago. I can’t help but feel indignant whenever I think about it.”
She then opened her closet and began picking out an outfit. Mrs. Bu asked, “You just came home, why are you getting changed again?”
“I’m getting changed into my outfit for tonight.”
“You’re going out again at night? Where to and what for?”
“Mother, will you please just stay out of this? I’m not a three-year-old child,” Bu Xianxian snapped while giving her the side-eye.
“You don’t have any friends here at all. Don’t go out and fool around at night.”
“Enough, I’ll be home early. Get out. I want to take a nap.”
Mrs. Bu stood up and chided, “You must have stayed up late last night again. No wonder you’re so listless and lethargic.”
She then left the room.
After picking out her outfit, she hung the clothing on a hanger and lay down in bed to catch some sleep.
She woke up again at five o’clock in the afternoon. After lazing in bed for a while, she got out of bed to take a shower and put on some makeup. Upon the sight of her parents sitting inside their own room, she tiptoed out of hers and left the house with her purse.
She headed to a restaurant for dinner before proceeding to a nightclub in the city.
She was dressed in a sexy ensemble, which was further accentuated after she removed her windbreaker. Whilst she was sipping on some drinks and glancing at the men in the nightclub, two slovenly-looking men walked toward her and teased, “Pretty lady, are you alone?”
Bu Xianxian glanced up at them and decided to ignore them.
Peeved by her nonchalant attitude, one of them groped her butt cheeks, causing her to be riled up. She glowered at him and barked, “What are you doing!?!”
Feeling extremely repulsed, Bu Xianxian gave him a tight slap across his face and rebuked, “Who do you think you are? Are you tired of living?”
The man was completely caught off guard. He chuckled sinisterly and looked at his friend, after which the two of them grabbed Bu Xianxian by her arms and dragged her away forcefully.
“What are you trying to do!?! Let go of me!” Bu Xianxian yelled in panic while trying to struggle out of their grip.
Although the other patrons had witnessed the scene, they decided to turn a blind eye and focused on enjoying themselves.
Bu Xianxian was dragged to the second floor of the nightclub. As much as she was screaming at the top of her lungs, her efforts were completely futile and no one bothered to rescue her.
At this very moment, a voice hollered sternly, “Stop it!”
Bu Xianxian could not believe her ears at first. She turned around to see that it was Jin Qingyan and Long Tianze.
“Nick!” Bu Xianxian exclaimed while her tears flowed freely from her eyes. She did not feel like crying at all. However, she decided to do so at this juncture, thinking that she could gain Jin Qingyan’s sympathy by doing so.
Having recognized who he was, the two men let go of her in disgruntlement. After glancing at each other, they immediately took flight. Jin Qingyan stepped forward to help her up. “What are you doing here at such a late hour? Didn’t you receive a call from the human resources department? You are to report to work tomorrow.”
Bu Xianxian looked down and said, “They called me this afternoon. Thank you, Nick.”
Jin Qingyan said, “Let’s go. I’m about to go home too. I’ll give you a lift since you live rather close by.”
Bu Xianxian answered with a nod, “Yes.”
Pursing his lips, Long Tianze remarked, “You’re dressed so sexily at such a late hour, tsk, tsk tsk…”
“Let’s go,” said Jin Qingyan.
I may have gotten a huge fright tonight but it was worth it, Bu Xianxian thought to herself after leaving the nightclub.
Once she got inside Jin Qingyan’s car, she began to think that tonight was the perfect opportunity for her to take action.
To her surprise, Jin Qingyan drove really quickly. We’ll definitely arrive in Sanqiao Estate soon and I’ll have to alight when that happens. Bu Xianxian looked out of the window to see that Long Tianze’s car had overtaken Jin Qingyan’s.
Long Tianze would definitely head straight back to Wei Ni Estate.
How am I supposed to grasp the opportunity within such a short amount of time?
Bu Xianxian began racking her brains and came up with a brazen idea.
She shivered at the thought of it, thinking to herself that she definitely wouldn’t be able to work at his company if her plan were to fail. By then…
But if I were to succeed…
There are still risks anyway.
But then again, the worst thing that can happen if I fail would be losing the opportunity to work at his company. However, if I were to succeed, my life would be changed forever!
She then said, “Nick, I need to use the washroom.”
“Can’t you wait until you get home?”
“No, I can’t hold it in any longer.”
Thus, Jin Qingyan pulled over by the entrance of a shopping mall and said, “Go inside to find a washroom.”
“Okay.” She alighted and scurried toward the shopping mall.
She then sneakily exited from another exit before returning to his car almost ten minutes later.
“Did you fall into the toilet bowl?”
“I had the runs. That’s why I said I couldn’t hold it in any longer.”
She sat in the passenger’s seat, feeling extremely nervous and tense.
She gripped her purse tightly in her hands, filled with panic and anxiety.
Once they reached the junction, Long Tianze drove toward Wei Ni Estate, just like she had expected. On the other hand, Jin Qingyan headed toward Sanqiao Estate to drop her off before going back to Wei Ni Estate.
Just as he was about to turn toward Sanqiao Estate, Bu Xianxian stealthily unzipped her purse and retrieved the brick. Due to the fact that it was dark inside the car and she was sitting behind Jin Qingyan’s seat, he did not sense anything amiss with her actions since he could not see her while keeping his eyes fixed on the roads ahead.
Her hands began to tremble when the car started to slow down. Just as Jin Qingyan was about to speak when he stopped the car, he felt a sudden, excruciating pain in the back of his head. Pangs of panic engulfed Bu Xianxian when she realized that he did not pass out immediately. Hence, she picked up the brick and smashed it against his head again, causing him to black out and thump his head down onto the steering wheel.
She felt a great sense of relief the moment she saw that he had stopped moving.
She reclined the passenger seat and moved him onto the seat with all her might. The entire process made her exhausted.
She got inside the driver’s seat and placed her hand on Jin Qingyan’s face gently. She murmured, “Just what does he do to his face? His skin is so smooth and soft. It’s so much better than mine. Ah, the perks of being rich.”
Without hesitation, Bu Xianxian decided to carry on with her plan while he was still unconscious. Thus, she gave her parents a call.
Mr. and Mrs. Bu did not catch sight of Bu Xianxian immediately when they arrived downstairs.
She rolled the window down and said, “Mother, I’m here.”
