Chapter 498: Incompetent Teammate
Just when he thought that he’d never meet that certain someone ever again, she suddenly appeared right in front of him and caught him completely off guard.
Xiao Luo was stunned and rooted to the spot. He could not believe what he was seeing and stared at the loving couple standing right in front of the wood carving. The husband was a good-looking man, and his wife was, undoubtedly, as beautiful as a blooming flower. The man’s right hand and Sun yu’s left hand were intertwined, and she affectionately leaned her head against the man’s shoulder, smiling as they looked into the camera.
What was she doing here?
Was she… was she already married?
Those two questions popped up in Xiao Luo’s head all of a sudden. He looked at Sun Yu, a little fuller than before, which made her look much prettier now. For a moment, Xiao Luo couldn’t come to his senses.
Gu Qianxue took the picture for them really quickly, and then they both walked over to look at the shot she just took and seemed quite excited.
“Wow, it’s very well taken,” Sun Yu said, smiling as she looked at the picture on the phone. She tucked her hair behind her ears.
The man was also delighted with the picture. He looked at Gu Qianxue and said, “Thank you, Miss.”
Without any expressions on her face, Gu Qianxue replied with an “mmm” and walked back toward Xiao Luo after returning the phone to the man.
“Darling, let’s go there, I think the view over there is even better than the view here,” Sun Yu said, pointing in the direction she meant a distance way.
“Sure, whatever you say. This is our honeymoon, no matter where you want to go, I’ll go with you,” the man said, looking at her with much affection.
Sun Yu, with a blissful smile on her face, grabbed onto the man’s shoulder and said, “Yunfeng, you’re the best!”
The two of them walked past Xiao Luo, and out of courtesy, the man nodded his head as he walked past. Sun Yu’s eyes stayed on Xiao Luo for a little longer, and even after some distance, she kept turning around and looking back repeatedly after each step.
“What’s the matter, darling?” The man could tell something was wrong and couldn’t help but ask.
“Yunfeng, I have no idea why, but that guy looks really familiar for some reason. It’s like I have met him somewhere before,” Sun Yu said.
The man looked at Xiao Luo again, patted her shoulder, smiled, and said, “Maybe this is not the first time and we’ve met them at some other attraction spot before. It was just that we didn’t think too much about it then, so that’s why you think he looks familiar to you.”
“No, it feels like he’s a very familiar person but yet he feels very distant at the same time. I frequently dream about someone, but in my dreams, I just can’t get a good look at his face. I have a very strong hunch that he’s the guy that I frequently dream about,” Sun Yu said. He was so familiar that it really felt weird.
“I feel you must be imagining things. Don’t think too much. We’re on our honeymoon, it’s more important to have fun and be happy. Just put away all these negative feelings for now, alright?” the man said, comforting her.
Sun Yu nodded her head, “Alright, I’ll listen to you.”
“Let’s go, we’ll head over there,” the man held her hands intimately.
Xiao Luo watched the couple walk further and further away until they completely disappeared from his view.
He then turned around and put on a genuine smile on his face. Sun Yu had gained a new lease of life and received the happiness that she really deserved. He was sincerely happy for her.
“The look in your eyes is really weird,” Gu Qianxue said, looking curiously at Xiao Luo with her huge eyes.
Xiao Luo smiled a little and said, “Do you still remember that I used to tell you about this girl?”
“The one who jumped off from a ten-story building? The girl who chose to end her life?” Gu Qianxue said, furrowing her eyebrows.
“Yes. I’ve met her again, but she no longer remembers who I am. She has completely forgotten all the things that happened back in Jiangcheng and is now living a new life. She has finally found the happiness that she truly deserves,” Xiao Luo said, smiling.
Gu Qianxue didn’t say anything. She was a little surprised, and she looked toward the direction of the couple. Gu Qianxue would never have imagined that the girl that Xiao Luo had told her about would suddenly appear standing right in front of him, well and alive.
“Let’s go, it’s time we head back. Your sister is here to pick you up,” Xiao Luo said, heaving a sigh.
It was already around 8 pm when they drove from the county town’s scenic spot back to Crescent Bay at Xiahai.
A black SUV was already at the entrance of Crescent Bay. The car door opened as soon as they saw Xiao Luo and Gu Qianxue stomped over. Gu Qianlin, in a black colored T-shirt, denim cropped pants, and a pair of police boots, walked over aggressively, and she was fuming mad.
She scowled at Xiao Luo and gritted her teeth. She clenched her fist and immediately threw a punch at Xiao Luo’s face.
Xiao Luo opened his palm and stopped it without much bother. “Officer Gu, what are you trying to do?” he cried.
“What am I trying to do?”
Gu Qianlin laughed despite her anger and said, “Where did you abduct my younger sister to this past couple of days?”
“Please mind the words you use. I don’t think the word ‘abduct’ is appropriate here.”
Xiao Luo hated this woman to the core. If it wasn’t because of the fact that she was Gu Qianxue’s sister, he would have already taught her a lesson just from the mere act of her clenching her fist and trying to punch him.
“Sister, I was the one who requested Xiao Luo to bring me around for some sightseeing,” Gu Qianxue said, coming to his defense.
Gu Qianlin used all her strength and pushed Xiao Luo’s hand away. “How many times do I have to remind you, this guy is not the same as us. He’s a murderer, do you not understand that people are easily influenced by their surroundings and the people they hang out with?” she screamed, “Besides, you’re a girl! Coming here from thousands of miles away and living in the same apartment with another guy… are you not worried that he might take advantage of you? Why are you so foolish and stupid!”
Gu Qianxue didn’t say a single thing and kept her head down. Although she might be more skillful than Gu Qianlin, her older sister was a very important person in her life. She was like a mum to Gu Qianxue, and she always listened to whatever her sister said.
“Since you already know that I’m a murderer, then you better watch what you do when you’re in front of me. Are you not afraid that I’ll kill you?” Xiao Luo sneered, glaring at her coldly.
Gu Qianlin could feel a sense of chill running down her spine. Was she really not afraid of Xiao Luo? No, she was terrified. She would never forget the scene at the underground parking lot where Xiao Luo murdered the hospital director right in front of her. It was cruel and bloody, so much so that even when she thought about it now, she could still remember it vividly as if it had just happened yesterday.
“This is between me and my younger sister, it has nothing to do with you,” she said.
“Gu Qianlin, you better stop talking to me with that kind of tone. I’m only tolerating you because of Gu Qianxue, so you better stop flaunting that kind of attitude in front of me from now onwards. Don’t show me the kind of face that you’d show to your subordinates. It pisses me off when I see that. I’ll make sure you regret it,” Xiao Luo warned her.
Gu Qianlin was furious but dared not say anything else.
“Hey, don’t be arrogant! I’ve been a policeman in Xiahai for so many years but never have I met a gangster that can be as arrogant as you.”
Suddenly, another person got out of the black SUV. It was a man. He was really tall, about 1.8 meters, and had a muscular body as well. The man swaggered over and said, “Officer Gu, there shouldn’t be any problem with arresting this guy here just from the fact that he was threatening and intimidating a police officer, right?”
As if he was looking at an idiot, Xiao Luo stared at him and asked, “Who are you?”
“You’re not qualified to know who I am, but just based on the fact that you were threatening and intimidating a police officer, I have the right to arrest you.”
The muscular man said with a smile, and then skillfully restrained Xiao Luo’s hands together with a handcuff. “Brat, you’re under arrested, I’ll need you to come back with us!”
Xiao Luo was stunned, then smile at Gu Qianlin and said, “Officer Gu, are you sure he’s not as incompetent as he looks?”
