Chapter 4 Dry Wood and a Strong Fire, and It Will Cook
Lu Boyan retrieved a document and went to the office. Uncle Xu felt bad for Su Jianan and said, “Young Master should have stayed and accompanied you.”
“Oh, there’s no need.”
Su Jianan felt that she and Lu Boyan had come to a consensus. They would get a marriage certificate, be husband and wife in name and stay under the same roof. They would lead their own lives, have their own fun and not disturb each other.
In the afternoon, Su Jianan had nothing to do. She had applied for leave and could not return to the police station for work. She could only sit in the living room on the sofa and read detective novels. Uncle Xu made her tea and prepared snacks and fruits for her silently. Su Jianan had a comfortable and leisurely time on the first afternoon of her marriage.
At about five, Luo Xiaoxi called and asked Su Jianan out.
Su Jianan left her car at the police station and it was not convenient to get a taxi here. She could only ask Uncle Xu to prepare a car for her.
Uncle Xu thought and asked, “Young Madam, why don’t you go to the garage and pick a car?”
When they arrived at the garage, Su Jianan was shell-shocked. There were five sports cars which totaled up to close to a hundred million dollars. There were also a few sedans and SUVs, and every one of them was considered the luxury car of luxury cars.
She swallowed with difficulty and said, “Uncle Xu, are there any inconspicuous cars?”
Uncle Xu pointed at the Mercedes SLK350 and said, “This one… should be the most inconspicuous one.”
There was no choice; Su Jianan could only drive this car to meet Luo Xiaoxi.
Luo Xiaoxi and Su Jianan were high school classmates.
In the first year of high school, Luo Xiaoxi had approached Su Jianan out of the blue. She tempted Su Jianan with a bottle of yogurt and said, “Let’s be good friends!”
Su Jianan’s first thought was that there was something wrong with the girl. But after Luo Xiaoxi’s many instances of temptation and pestering, they eventually became friends.
After that, Su Jianan found out that Luo Xiaoxi’s pestering and temptations were because of a huge plot. But she already could not get rid of Luo Xiaoxi. They became good friends of almost 10 years by accident.
This time, Luo Xiaoxi arranged to meet Su Jianan in a bar in the city center. Luo Xiaoxi waved at her the moment she arrived, “Over here!”
Luo Xiaoxi had exquisite features and was tall and slender. If she had behaved more normally, she would have become the goddess in her university since she was the belle of her department.
But in the end, she only became a unique crazy.
Luo Xiaoxi poured Su Jianan a cut of fresh fruit juice the moment she sat down. She said, “It’s the first day of your marriage, how are things going with your husband?”
“Oh, I’m not close to my husband.” Su Jianan tossed a grape into her mouth. “So the first day of marriage is just so-so.”
Luo Xiaoxi fell silent for a moment. She patted Su Jianan’s shoulders and said seriously, “Lie down and chat, then, use the dry wood and cook the rice. Then, you guys can be as close as you want to be!”
“You’re too evil; I don’t know you for the next 5 minutes.”
Su Jianan hugged the fruit platter and moved away from Luo Xiaoxi.
Luo Xiaoxi smiled and scooted over, “You’re already a married woman, what are you being shy about?”
“I’m being shy on behalf of you, an unmarried young lady!”
“Let’s not be shy! Look at how a young lady like me become close to a man. And learn from it!”
Luo Xiaoxi got up and walked towards the bar.
Su Jianan smiled. She held her fruit juice and leaned back into the sofa, watching Luo Xiaoxi from afar.
Luo Xiaoxi had long legs and a slender waist. A man came to flirt with her less than half a minute after she sat down on the tall stool in front of the bar.
“Miss,” The man sat on the tall stool, leaving a stool between him and Luo Xiaoxi. “I would like to buy you a drink.”
Luo Xiaoxi considered the man. He looked pretty decent and had used a descriptive statement “I would like to buy you a drink” instead of asking “Can I buy you a drink?” which was a question that could be easily refused. It was obvious that he was a pro at flirting.
It would be him then!
“Alright,” Luo Xiaoxi smiled brilliantly. “I like long island iced tea.”
The man ordered a long island iced tea for Luo Xiaoxi and started chatting with her naturally. Luo Xiaoxi was interested, so the atmosphere between the two became cheery and relaxed. The man naturally moved to sit beside Luo Xiaoxi. There was no longer a tall stool between them.
Luo Xiaoxi sensed the man’s action and smiled. She looked at Su Jianan as if to say “Did you see? The rice is cooked!”
Su Jianan raised the glass of fruit juice in her hand, saluting Luo Xiaoxi.
Luo Xiaoxi winked, indicating that she had received the salutation.
The man noticed the interaction between Luo Xiaoxi and Su Jianan and asked, “Is that girl your friend?”
“Yep.” Luo Xiaoxi smiled and nodded.
“I came with a friend as well.” The man pointed at a booth in the distance where there was a good-looking man wearing a white shirt. “Why don’t we introduce our friends and sit together to talk?”
Luo Xiaoxi’s long and slender fingers tapped on the bar table and then, she jumped off the tall stool with a brilliant smile. “Sure!”
