His One Love - Chapter 85
~End of chapter 84
The construction crew worked quickly and efficiently. The balcony windows were sealed within an hour.
Lu Wanwan felt it was a pity, the scenery outside the window was now covered by half, the view was not as good as before.
After the construction workers had left, Lu Wanwan walked up to Shen Yi, standing side by side with him, she asked casually, pretending to be nonchalant: “Why did you suddenly want to install sealed windows? It doesn’t look good.”
Shen Yi took a side glance at her, his voice was very light, his low voice seemed to be carrying a heavy pressure, coming from far away,”Adding a sealed window is safer, so small animals can’t fall down.”
They didn’t have any animals at home, where did the fear of it not being safe come from ?
Lu Wanwan turned her body around and tilted her head to look at his face. She blinked, forcing herself to stay calm. Her voice was delicate, just like the one of a young girl who had just become of age and acting coquettishly, sweet and soft. She pointed to the windowsill as she daintily said: “It’s too ugly, I don’t like it, tomorrow tell them to come back and remove it.”
She had no idea whether Shen Yi would agree or not.
There was only one light on in the living room, the lighting was very dim. The man was standing with his back against the light, his features sinking in the dusk. His pitch black eyes were both deep and bright. A low chuckle escaped from the depth of his throat, he reached out his hand and touched her face, stroking her eyebrow with his fingertips, “Wanwan doesn’t find it good-looking ?”
Lu Wanwan replied in a small and dry voice: “It’s not good looking, we’re probably the only apartment in the whole building who have those installed, I don’t like it at all.”
Shen Yi lifted his cold eyes, carefully scrutinizing the expression on her face, “They cannot be taken down.”
If those were to be removed, there will come a day when she would choose to jump.
Lu Wanwan couldn’t say what exactly was wrong with Shen Yi, the killing aura surrounding his entire body was particularly dense, even more so than before.
The bit of gentleness that remained seemed to no longer exist.
A smile was hanging on Shen Yi’s lips, his interested gaze fell on her face, his dark eyes looked desolate and lightless as he asked, “Wanwan, what do you want to do ?”
What did she want to do? She herself was a little at a loss as to what to do.
There was nothing but the fear that she still wouldn’t be able escape the fate of the original body’s owner, that she would end up dying no matter what.
Lu Wanwan wouldn’t jump down the building anymore, it was too painful, she didn’t like that.
She pretended to sigh and said to Shen Yi, in a very regretful tone, “If you don’t want to remove it, then forget it.”
She lacked the spirit to argue, and didn’t have much energy either.
She woke up two or three times in the middle of the night, her mouth humming and mumbling about being thirsty.
It felt like someone pinched her chin, making her drink water one mouthful at a time.
Lu Wanwan, with peace of mind, started living the life of a rich lady. She took the painkillers prescribed by the hospital and thanks to that, the pain in the back of her head finally subsided, but she couldn’t stop taking the medicine, otherwise once she stopped taking it, it would recur.
Zhao Zhao was as idle and bored as she was. All the two jobless individuals did every day was shopping and eating.
Zhao Zhao was in the first line of gossip among the rich ladies inner’s circle, she was the first to find out about the gossip regarding the rich families.
On the weekend, the two of them met to watch a musical.
Unfortunately, Lu Wanwan fell asleep while listening to it and was woken up by Zhao Zhao when the opera was over.
She was a little embarrassed, rubbing her eyebrows and saying in a hoarse voice, “I indeed am unable to appreciate such elegant art.”
Zhao Zhao spoke more even bluntly than she did, grabbing her bag, she said, “I can’t understand the fun in it either, if it weren’t for the handsome men, I wouldn’t come.”
The two walked as they talked, until they got to the underground parking lot.
That was when Zhao Zhao found out that her car had broken down, the battery was dead, she kicked the car with her high heels, “What a crappy car, tomorrow I will take it to the junkyard and sell it.”
Zhao Zhao took her arm and said, “Let’s take a taxi to go back.”
Lu Wanwan looked at the time on her phone, it was the rush hour after work, adding to that the fact that two performances had ended at the same time, all the people in the audience trying to leave the venue were having a hard time getting a taxi.
Not surprisingly, a large number of fans, mostly students, were standing in front of the opera house to pursue the young and handsome main actors of the performance.
Lu Wanwan’s cell phone suddenly rang.
It was a call from Shen Yi.
“I’m coming to pick you up.”
He only said these five simple words, and nothing extra.
He didn’t even need to ask, he already knew where she was at.
Zhao Zhao looked at the expression on her face and knew who had called, her lips twitched as she hesitated to say something.
Lu Wanwan let out a sigh and put the phone back into her bag, with a calm expression.
The male lead Shen Yi’s temperament was finally starting to be reveal its true colors, right?
That facade of a lovely and well-behaved man was finally starting to fall apart, wasn’t it? She was already able to face it very calmly.
Zhao Zhao thought for a moment, but she felt frustrated in her heart. The frustration made her feel stuffy in her chest and very uncomfortable. She said: “Your husband is controlling you a bit too tightly, no ? It’s not even dark outside yet.”
Lu Wanwan shrugged her shoulders indifferently, “He must be unhappy again.”
