Chapter 113 - The Signal Was Bad, What Did You Say?
Qin Feng was slightly startled when the jadelike body entered his embrace. He was about to push Lin Bei Bei away when she whispered into his ear with a slight gust of warmth: “Qin Feng, take me tonight!”
Qin Feng began to doubt that this was the Lin Bei Bei he knew. He hadn’t seen her for a week, but this change was too large.
He didn’t know about Yu Wen Xiang’s brutality toward Lin Bei Bei or her lonely sleepless nights when she thought about him. He didn’t know about a lot of things regarding her, so that’s why he felt that she seemed to have changed.
He pushed Lin Bei Bei off him and sat up with seriousness: “Bei Bei, don’t speak nonsense. You’re still in college, this is not something you should touch upon.”
Qin Feng suddenly became angry. He scared Lin Bei Bei and she sat to the side and hung her head. He didn’t know what she was thinking.
After a while, Lin Bei Bei bit her lip and softly asked: “Qin Feng, do you like me?”
Qin Feng didn’t rush to respond. He still had the quest of making Lin Bei Bei his girlfriend, and even if he disregarded this quest, he still cared about Lin Bei Bei.
Who wouldn’t like this pure, strong, independent, and beautiful woman?
“Let’s talk about this another day.” Qin Feng said after a lot of hesitation.
Though only the Hao family elder was left as a general without an army, this was the most dangerous time of the war between the Qin and Hao families. After all, the Hao Elder had nothing to lose, so he would definitely do anything to take his revenge on the Qin Family.
Qin Feng didn’t want to endanger the people close to him during this tenuous time. A large part of why he went to work at Royal Group was due to this. He was afraid that if he interacted with Lin Bei Bei, Zhao Ling Xian, or Yun Xiao too frequently, they would be in danger. After all, the Hao Elder would use them as leverage against him.
Pure and sparkling tears rolled down Lin Bei Bei’s face. She had nothing more to say. She treated Qin Feng’s words as a rejection, and her heart was struck with an unnamed ache.
Originally, she wanted to mention the Yu Wen Xiang situation. Now, she felt that there was no need for that. Qin Feng didn’t even like her, so why would she cling onto him? She was not that kind of woman.
“Qin Feng, you head back. I need to sleep.” Lin Bei Bei suddenly stood and didn’t look at Qin Feng.
Half a month earlier, in the same room, Lin Bei Bei was rejected by Qin Feng once. At that time, her heart was filled with all sorts of emotions. Today, half a month later, she was rejected again, but the one that left was Qin Feng instead.
Though the time was short, it felt like a lifetime. But, the pain of heartbreak was as distinct as ever.
Qin Feng stood. He could tell that Lin Bei Bei was down, but for her safety he didn’t explain himself. Once he completely resolved the Hao Family issue, he would come back personally and provide Lin Bei Bei a satisfactory explanation.
“Wait!” Lin Bei Bei called out just as Qin Feng approached the door.
“For you… Since there won’t be a chance in the future!”
Lin Bei Bei presented him with a white shirt with a little black bowtie.
As a girl of her age, the love she pursued was pure and simple. It was not about brand name purses and especially not about race cars and mansions. That day on the sports field, he was as bright as the sun. She thought that if Qin Feng wore a white shirt with a black bowtie, he would be just as handsome and bright like the sun.
After leaving the Royal Clubhouse, Qin Feng rushed back to the Qin Manor on his 28” bike. At this time, his cell phone rang.
Qin Feng pulled out his phone. It was an unfamiliar number.
“Who is it?”
“Haha, is this Young Master Qin?” A familiar laughter passed through the phone. But, even after thinking for a while, Qin Feng couldn't think of who it was.
“Are you trying to figure out who I am? Haha, I'll tell you who I am. I'm proud of who I am and I stand by my actions, I’m smart and handsome, my ability and status defy natural order, my name is spread far and wide in the Capital, and I’m renowned in China as Young Master Wei of the Four Young Masters of the Capital, Wei Xiao Lei.” Wei Xiao Lei said all this with his head high and chest puffed.
Qin Feng scratched his ear: “Hey, the signal was bad at first. What did you say?”
Wei Xiao Lei’s lips twitched and he almost hung up: “I'm Wei Xiao Lei.”
“Oh, now that's much more natural.” Qin Feng laughed: “You gave all of these phony titles that I almost treated you as a clapper talk performer.”
“Qin Feng, don't think that I'm afraid of you because you're Acropolis City’s number one young master. In my eyes, Acropolis is just a pellet of a land. I've seen a lot of people like you who are toads sitting at the bottom of a well.” [TLN: The toad is in reference to a Chinese story about a frog who lives at the bottom of a well. He knows nothing of the outside world because he thinks his well is the world.]
Ever since Wei Xiao Lei lost the car race and his limited edition Maserati GranTurismo to Qin Feng, he hated Qin Feng. After sending some people to do some research, he then discovered that Qin Feng had some background, and he was Acropolis’ richest young master.
But what then? Wei Xiao Lei was also a rich young master. He was one of the four young masters of the Capital. As China’s economic hub, the Capital was much larger than Acropolis.
Not only was he unafraid of Qin Feng’s background, he even looked right for him. He wanted to teach Qin Feng a good lesson.
“Since Young Master Wei looks down on Acropolis and me as well, then don't call me. The global phone card I opened is really expensive.” Qin Feng was too lazy to care about people like Wei Xiao Lei. He was about to hang up when he heard an urgent shout.
“Qin Feng, hang up then. If you hang up, I'll assure you that when you get back to the Qin Manor, you'll notice that your little lover is gone. By then, I can't guarantee how many men will be on her.”
Qin Feng’s brows immediately furrowed. For other issues, he could let them go, but women and close friends were his sore spots. Wei Xiao Lei touched his sore spot, and to Qin Feng, this was not a wise move.
“Haha.” Qin Feng suddenly laughed: “I, Qin Feng, am distinguished in my unruliness. I have as many women as I have clothes. I wonder which woman you've captured Young Master Wei?”
“Haha, Qin Feng, why are you pretending? Aren't you trying to figure out if I've really kidnapped your woman? Then I’ll let you take a listen.”
A crisp slap rang through the phone followed by Wei Xiao Lei’s ruthless shout: “F*ck, hurry and say what your name is and scream twice for me so that idiot Qin Feng can hear.”
“Ah... D-don't hit me, I-I don't know Qin Feng. W-why did you kidnap me? Let me go, I’m begging you.”
The tender and weak cry of a woman drifted over. Though she didn't say his name and claimed she didn't know him, once she opened her mouth, Qin Feng’s eyes turned red. He thought to himself: “Ruo Rou, don't be afraid! I'll be right there. I'll kill these people and use their blood as an apologetic sacrifice to you.”
“Haha… hearing the voice, it does sound like a woman I've played with. Tell me, where are you? I'll go and take a look. If it really is my woman, I'll take her with me.”
“Qin Feng, I'll be waiting for you at Coiled Snake Mountain. If I don't see you in ten minutes, your woman will become everyone’s woman. Hahaha!”
