Chapter 552: Half Angel, Half Devil (Part Two)
– At the Burj Al Arab hotel –
Lin Chuxue just came back from shopping with Haber’s wife, and she began ranting in confusion, “Oh my god, I can’t take it anymore. All those club members we met on the cruise all came to try to hand me their business cards, wanting me to go to their house to be a guest. The gifts they sent me were worth more than I’ve received in my whole life, they are so passionate that I could hardly handle them…”
Xu Cheng smiled and didn’t say anything.
“Why are you still smiling?” Lin Chuxue glared at him, “I asked Haber’s wife, and she said it was because of what happened last night. Didn’t I just get scared and say something random to those [email protected]? Who knew they would begin killing each other afterward… There are already a few versions of the story now, some were even saying that I was too charming and the entire mercenary group killed each other just to get me.”
Xu Cheng chuckled and said, “Isn’t that right? My wife is beautiful and charming enough for people to fight with their lives on the line for.”
“Of course not good! Now, every time I see those people that were on the ship, they all look at me like I’m a god or something, and they were just a step away from kneeling and praying to me.” Lin Chuxue didn’t know whether she should laugh or cry. “Just look at all the gifts they gave me, I won’t use most of them anyway. Today, I just walked around the mall, and the moment I looked at anything, no matter the price, someone would quickly have packaged it in minutes and delivered it to my car. They seem to know me even better than my man.”
Xu Cheng casually said, “You said those things last night, and then those mercenaries all died after. Who wouldn’t be afraid of you after that? You just stood there calmly, and no one was able to kill you. Even the bullet that was shot at you stopped mid-air. After this whole thing, you even fainted. So in their story’s version, it was because you channeled some sorcery and exhausted yourself and that’s why you fainted.”
Lin Chuxue suddenly stared right into Xu Cheng’s eyes.
Xu Cheng felt her mischievous gaze and met her eyes. “Why are you staring at me?”
Lin Chuxue asked with a faint smile, “Strange. Didn’t you jump into the ocean and was absent from the scene? Why are you talking like you were there or something?”
Xu Cheng muttered in his heart, Fack, I was too careless and forgot about that.
Lin Chuxue looked at Xu Cheng like a detective that just found out about the truth and smiled. “Just tell me, what happened? Many people want to know what really happened, and that includes me. I even asked Mrs. Haber to check for the surveillance on the cruise for me. All systems were shut off, and it coincidently went down when the mercenaries started dying. If the ship was really haunted by a ghost, why would the ghost bother with the surveillance?”
Xu Cheng really wanted to give himself a slap. It seemed like he couldn’t just do the deed and not get found out anymore.
“Haber was just telling me what had happened earlier,” Xu Cheng smiled and said.
“So fake.” Lin Chuxue looked at him and pretended to be discontent. “Why are you trying to show off your acting skills in front of me? There was a clear pause in your change of expression and tone the moment I exposed you. I’ve won the Best Actress award, I know how fake your acting was just now. Also, I’ve already asked Haber. Ever since the event, he was busy trying to take care of the loose ends. He wanted to see you, but you had been avoiding him the whole time. Can I ask how you managed to hear the story from him?”
Xu Cheng was speechless.
Lin Chuxue: “I know it must’ve been you that saved me. But I still hope that when you do things for me in the future, you won’t hide it from me.”
Xu Cheng bitterly smiled. “Chuxue, would you be afraid if I’m a murderous demon? Sometimes, it’s not that I don’t want to tell you, I just want to leave a good impression in your heart and accompany you by your side with my angel side. As for the demon side, I hope you never get to see it.”
Lin Chuxue reached out and grabbed onto Xu Cheng’s hand and said sincerely “I also hope that, whether it’s the demon or the angel side of you, you won’t hide anything from me.”(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
Xu Cheng sighed. “Yes, they were all killed by me. Just like what you said to them, anyone that dares to hurt you will all die.”(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
But for some things, it was better to just leave it as a supernatural mystery event.(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
