Chapter 40 Wait and See
"Oh, I have arranged with colleagues of the department to have lunch together." This is a fact, but Si Jinheng thought that she was still angry.
"Don't be angry. Mother will leave in a few days." Sitting on the sofa, Si Jinheng pulled her over onto his laps.
"I am not angry. I do make an appointment with the colleagues at midday." Li Qianluo was still unwilling to have lunch with Si Jinheng, for seeing him would remind her of his mother...
"Cancel it. I will go on a business trip for a couple of days to A country tonight, taking the latest flight. You must accompany me for lunch today." Si Jinheng then called Yun Qi to reserve some dishes and fetch them for lunch.
"Si Jinheng...You don't love me after all. There is no need to strain your relationship with your mother for me. I can move out to leave you in peace." Li Qianluo looked into the dark eyes of Si Jinheng.
"No! It has nothing to do with my mother whether I love you or not. I will deal with her." Si Jinheng turned down the proposal by Li Qianluo.
"So...do you love me, Si Jinheng?" asked she, seizing the chance, which was a question all women would enquire. But Si Jinheng kissed on Li Qianluo's lips instead of answering this easy question.
"You can guess." said Si Jinheng with complicated eyes, resting his forehead against Li Qianluo's.
... But Li Qianluo dared not say what she guessed!
As Si Jinheng went on the business trip that night, Li Qianluo slowed down deliberately to return to the villa very late.
She thought that Si Jinheng's mother would have fallen asleep. At that moment, Mu Ruoyan went out of her room and blocked Li Qianluo's way at Si Jinheng's room door.
Looking at the woman coldly, she said: "Who allows you to enter my son's room?" Mu Ruoyan looked rosy and shining in a white silk night-robe.
Li Qianluo did not answer the question from Mu Ruoyan, but said with smile: "Mother, I will buy another white nightgown for you tomorrow, because you look so rosy and a few years younger in this color!"
Mu Ruoyan felt happy with the compliment from Li Qianluo though, she still rolled her eyes. "You don't need to fawn on me. I have heard a lot of that compliment. It's useless!"
"I really mean it and do not play up to you on purpose. You are my husband's mother, so I respect you very much!" Li Qianluo could swear that she was telling the truth. But her mother-in-law was unwilling to believe her.
"I don't need your respect. Do not enter my son's room and get out!" Mu Ruoyan pointed at the stairs with her index finger. Lack of her son's protection, this woman would be driven away without resistance!
"Yes, Si Jinheng is your son, as well as my husband. Why can't I enter our room?" Li Qianluo lost the last bit of patience. Why was this mother-in-law so unreasonable? Why did she insist on treating her as a tramp?
Mu Ruoyan smiled and said bluntly: "So what? Do you really think yourself the owner of this villa? This belongs to our Si family. Get out of here!"
Seeing the attitude of Mu Ruoyan, Li Qianluo was disinclined to say more and left at once.
She drove her motorbike to check in a hotel. She wanted to have a regular hotel to crash for the night. But thinking that his mother would stay in D city for several days, she booked a deluxe suite for two nights.
Si Jinheng turned on his mobile phone once he got off the plane, and he received a message saying: "Dear VIP customer, hello! You have spent 1, 688 yuan in Telles Hotel at 21:46 tonight! Wish you a happy day!"
This was that black card he gave to Li Qianluo. It was already late. Did she spend this money in checking in a hotel?
He made a phone call to her. Li Qianluo was about to sleep after a bath. Seeing the call from Si Jinheng, she picked up the phone.
"Where are you?" Si Jinheng was really smart, knowing that she was not at home.
"A hotel." She did not intend to conceal that.
"You can stay there for a couple of days. Yun Qi is in D city. Call him if you need help." Si Jinheng felt at ease after making sure that she was safe.
"Li Qianluo..., " he called her in a soft voice, which was extremely sexy.
"Yes?" she grunted.
"I miss you."
He said he missed her...The woman couldn't help smiling. "Boss Si, I am not with you now. So don't flirt with me, or you may suffer from burning desire later. Don't blame me for that!"
"I don't have that desire without you." He was rather forward.
"...OK, come back early. I will wait for you!" Li Qianluo uttered the last few words very tenderly.
"Li Qianluo, wait and see!" After hanging up the phone, Si Jinheng smiled. It had only been a few hours, but this little woman was already making a move on him. She should be punished!
Li Qianluo felt much delighted because of the phone call from Si Jinheng. She fell asleep soundly after playing with her mobile phone for a while.
At over 5:00 a.m., a woman with messy hair ran out from a room on the floor of presidential suites, stumbling and wavering.
She ran into an exit passageway of the hotel and took out a mobile phone from her bag with trembling hands. She checked again and again, but found that she could only contact Li Qianluo.
The mobile phone rang suddenly while Li Qianluo was sleeping soundly. She fetched the phone in a daze and found that it was only 5:00 in the morning...
Why did Wanwan call her so early? Li Qianluo answered the phone. "Wanwan."
"Qianluo..." Yu Wanwan said in a low voice, as if she was constraining herself on purpose.
"I am sleepy. Wanwan, what's wrong?" Li Qianluo could not even open her eyes.
"Qianluo, sorry to disturb you. I...I am in some troubles. Can I come over now?" Hiding in the exit passageway of the hotel, Yu Wanwan didn't know what to do.
"What's going on? What's the problem?" Li Qianluo sobered up suddenly and sat up on the bed. It was cool in the early morning, so she stretched out her arm to turn off the air conditioner.
Thinking of what had happened last night, Yu Wanwan bit her underlip and didn't know how to put it.
"Tell me face to face! I am in Room 2033 of Telles Hotel." Li Qianluo turned off the bedside lamp and got out of bed. She put on her shoes and turned on the light of the room.
"Telles?" Yu Wanwan looked at the sign on the footstep in a trance: Welcome to Telles Hotel!
In three minutes, Yu Wanwan knocked at Li Qianluo's door. Li Qianluo was startled at such a speed. How could she be so quickly?
Upon seeing Yu Wanwan who was in a mess, Li Qianluo knew that something happened to her.
How distinct the marks on her neck were! Li Qianluo certainly knew what these marks stood for.
"Qianluo!" Yu Wanwan dashed into the arms of Li Qianluo and started to sob. Li Qianluo pulled her onto the sofa and asked her about what had happened.
Yu Wanwan described what had happened last night in details, choking with sobs.
She had been tutoring a 16-year-old child in English as her part-time job these years. Yesterday, he quarreled with his family members and ran out to check in a hotel alone.
