Translator: Dragon Boat Translation Editor: Dragon Boat Translation
Qin Xuan’s boyfriend, Gu Xiao, was also looking at Xia Jin curiously. “She’s your friend?”
Xia Jin did not expect Qin Xuan’s new boyfriend to be Gu Xiao.
Gu Xiao, the youngest son of the Gu Corporation, was one of Huo Jue’s few good friends. He had met Xia Jin many times, and Gu Xiao knew about the matter between Xia Jin and Huo Jue.
Qin Xuan nodded. “Yes, didn’t I tell you that a friend of mine has moved in with me recently? It’s Xia Jin.”
Gu Xiao curled the corners of his lips into a smile casually. “Oh. That’s why I’m not even allowed to go to your house anymore, and I have to come to this bar every day to look for you.”
When Xia Jin heard Gu Xiao’s words, she vaguely felt that she had caused trouble for Qin Xuan.
She thought to herself that she had to find an apartment quickly and move out.
“Tsk. Look at what you’re saying! If it wasn’t for your good friend Huo Jue bullying Xiao Jin, would she not even have a place to stay?” Qin Xuan rolled her eyes in a flirtatious manner. Then, she hammered her small fist on Gu Xiao’s body, and the two of them gradually began to flirt with each other.
Qin Xuan gave Xia Jin the password to her room, telling her to take a shower and change her clothes before leaving.
Xia Jin pushed open the door to the room, which was filled with a faint smell of grease and powder. It was probably the smell of perfume that had not dissipated yet.
Qin Xuan’s bar was very busy, so she would often sleep in the bar from time to time. She also had quite a few clothes in the closet.
However, most of Qin Xuan’s clothes were very sexy and fiery, so Xia Jin picked out a somewhat thin shirt after a long time.
She took the shirt and went to the bathroom to take a shower.
After the shower, she thought of Huo Jue when she was blow-drying her hair.
Her life seemed to have gone downhill ever since she met Huo Jue.
Five years of her youth had gone down the drain, and he was still unwilling to let her off for the remaining three months. Moreover, when she was being bullied to such an extent just now, the first thing he did was to cut off all ties with her!
The more Xia Jin thought about it, the more despondent she became. She could not help but curse, “What kind of despicable man is this? Why don’t you just die? It’s best if he becomes incurably ill! Or he can lose all his assets tomorrow!”
Xia Jin was in a much better mood after venting her anger. She put on a shirt while humming a tune, buttoning it up as she walked out of the bathroom.
She was in such a good mood that she did not even notice that there was a man sitting on the sofa in the room.
It was only when she saw Huo Jue that a scream escaped Xia Jin’s throat. “Ah!”
Then, she covered her mouth quickly and looked at the man on the sofa in shock.
Huo Jue slowly turned his head to look at her. After a while, the corners of his mouth curled up into a cold and sinister smile. “You’re scolding quite well.”
Did he hear everything?
Xia Jin panicked for a couple of seconds before calming down quickly.
She remembered that she did not name anyone when she was scolding him just now and felt at ease.
She nodded as if in agreement, “Yes, even with a wife, he’s still looking for a mistress! How outrageous! How can there be such a disgusting man in the world?”
She shifted her curses onto Wang Ran without guilt.
Huo Jue stared at her coldly for two seconds, as if he had seen through her.
Did she really think that he did not know who she was scolding?
However, Huo Jue did not bother arguing with Xia Jin. He turned his head and shook the ashes of the cigarette between his fingers into the ashtray.
His long, slender fingers moved casually, revealing his natural elegance and nobility.
Amid the smoke, Huo Jue suddenly realized who the man Xia Jin had just mentioned looking for a mistress was.
Was he not the man she had ingratiated herself with at the Japanese restaurant previously?
At that time, Huo Jue checked up on that man after returning from the mall. He was surprised for a long time–he didn’t expect Xia Jin’s tastes to be so indiscriminate, and she could even lay her hands on such an ugly and trashy man.
Xia Jin walked to the sofa carefully, ready to grab her clothes and run away.
Xia Jin was wearing only a loose shirt when she stepped out of the shower. The shirt material was so thin that it faintly the pale skin underneath. As she wasn’t even wearing any underwear on her upper body, the outline of her breasts showed as she moved.
She was only wearing undies on her lower body, and her long and smooth legs were exposed.
She glanced at Huo Jue cautiously. There was some annoyance and disgust between the man’s eyes, as if he had thought of something that made him extremely unhappy.
Xia Jin heaved a sigh of relief.
Little did she know that Huo Jue was thinking of exactly what was going on in her mind at the moment.
Her fingertip had already touched her trousers, and just as Xia Jin was about to take them over, a cold voice suddenly sounded from behind her. “You said that I’ve bullied you in front of your friend?”
Xia Jin froze and stopped moving.
She hadn’t said that.
Oh right, it seemed like Qin Xuan had told Gu Xiao that she had been kicked out by Huo Jue and didn’t even have a place to stay, so she could only stay at Qin Xuan’s house.
Gu Xiao must have told Huo Jue about this.
In addition, Gu Xiao was Qin Xuan’s boyfriend, so he must have known the room password.
The reason why Huo Jue was able to waltz into the room was definitely because Gu Xiao had told him the password.
Xia Jin suddenly felt that Gu Xiao was as hateful as a blabbermouth..
