Chapter 499: No
Did he just say that I was incompetent?
The muscular man felt very offended, for he was the Criminal Investigation team leader in Xiahai Police Headquarters. He had graduated from the same police academy as Gu Qianlin, and that was why she called him to assist her. She was unfamiliar with Xiahai City and needed a local guide.
Although he had been married for some time and did not have any inappropriate thoughts towards Gu Qianlin, he still tried harder than usual to impress her. He wanted to let her know that he was somebody in Xiahai with reputation and power. But he was irked that this young man he had just apprehended did not feel threatened or remorseful, and even spoke to him with such arrogance despite knowing that he was the police. It was simply intolerable for a distinguished officer like him.
Furiously, the muscular man grabbed Xiao Luo’s collar with a powerful grip that almost lifted him off the ground. “What the hell are you talking about, boy? Do you think that I am someone you can joke around with? You’re asking for a good beating!” he yelled.
Xiao Luo stared at him coldly and said, “Let go!”
The muscular man had now gotten even more provoked and started to laugh. “I have seen countless arrogant and fearless jerks the likes of you before, but you, boy, are surely the most… ahrrgh!”
Before he could finish his words, he suddenly felt a tremendous impact on his chest that caused him to react with a painful howl. His whole body flew back for a few meters and crashed hard into the back of Gu Qianlin’s black SUV before he slumped to the ground.
In shock, Xiao Luo stared at Gu Qianxue by his side, still in her boxing pose, and raised his brows.
Quickly recovering from her initial shock, Gu Qianlin shouted angrily at Gu Qianxue, “What are you doing? Who told you to throw that punch?”
Then Gu Qianlin hurriedly ran over to help the muscular man up.
Gu Qianxue’s expression remained the same throughout, and she shrieked reply, “Nobody told him to be rude to Xiao Luo, too.”
Gu Qianlin was so exasperated that she clenched her teeth. “You are too obsessed with him,” she cried.
The muscular man was coughing non-stop now, and he stared at Gu Qianxue in great shock and was thoroughly embarrassed now. Had he not experienced it personally, he would not have believed such a soft-looking girl could send him flying with just one punch. The kind of terrible power and impact she had delivered even shook his internal organs and made him felt the pain and breathlessness in his chest.
“Sis, you won’t ever understand. Xiao Luo is very important to me,” Gu Qianxue replied, frowning as she looked at her sister.
“What do you understand? There’s a ton of women around him, and you are not his only one. You are throwing yourself at him, but he may not reciprocate your feelings. You don’t know anything about men, so how do you know that you will not get hurt if you insist on pursuing this crazy obsession of yours? I am your sister, and I am doing everything for your own good; why can’t you understand that?” Gu Qianlin shouted as her emotions got the better of her.
“I am well aware of my own actions, and I also know that Xiao Luo has many other women around him.”
Gu Qianxue looked at Xiao Luo with calm eyes and said, “But I don’t care. I like to be with him, and I would always be happy as long as I can see him. For me, that is enough.”
“What? Oh, you’re beyond help, really beyond help!” Gu Qianlin cried.
She shook her head in frustration and sadness as she had been trying very hard to suppress Gu Qianxue’s feelings for Xiao Luo, but the harder she tried, the stronger those emotions grew. It came to a point where Gu Qianxue couldn’t bear it any longer and actually came to Xiahai to look for Xiao Luo without even telling Gu Qianlin at all.
As far as Gu Qianlin was concerned, this was her only sister, and she had fallen to a murderous devil!
She found it ironic that God had chosen to deal with them an unfair hand for all her efforts to protect her younger sister, and she could not accept it.
Xiao Luo felt really confused as he thought that Gu Qianxue only saw him as a brother, but looking at how things were unfolding, he was shocked. He did not want to hurt this innocent girl, but he knew he had to disappoint her like he did Chu Yue.
He merely applied some force to break the handcuffs that were restricting his hands.
What the…how could that be possible?!
Seeing that happened, the muscular man was utterly shocked and stared in disbelief. He thought, who the f*ck are these people? A young girl could send himself flying with one punch, and a man just the handcuffs in two—are they monsters?”
When he recalled grabbing Xiao Luo by his collar, he broke into a sudden cold sweat.
Xiao Luo faced Gu Qianxue. “Qianxue, I have always thought of you as my little sister, just like how I think of Ruyi, besides that…” he said, then showed his wedding ring to Gu Qianxue, “I am married, and you have also seen my wife; she even gave you this set of clothes.”
Gu Qianlin was stunned as she did not expect that Xiao Luo would say this, so her impression of Xiao Luo improved a little.
However, Gu Qianxue did not react to his words at all and just stared at him innocently. It seemed like she was waiting for Xiao Luo to finish speaking.
“You… do you understand what I am saying?” Xiao Luo asked.
Gu Qianxue nodded. “Yup, I got it,” she said.
Xiao Luo sighed in relief and thought that this girl was pretty tenacious, for she did not break down from the pain of rejection. “That’s great. There are many outstanding boys in the world, and you can find them effortlessly…” he said.
“Xiao Luo, let’s get married too.”
Before he finished his words, Gu Qianxue came up, and she brought her face really close to Xiao Luo’s, no less than ten centimeters away.
Xiao Luo was as surprised as Gu Qianlin, and even the muscular man gasped as Gu Qianxue’s remarks were unthinkable. Somehow, Guo Qianxue never failed to come up with the most ridiculous ideas that could catch people off-guard.
“Huh? What are you talking about? I am married, so how can I marry you again?” Xiao Luo responded.
“Why not? If you can marry other women, why can’t you marry me?”
Xiao Luo was so exasperated that he gave her a knock on her head and chided her, “Did you spend your time in Jiangcheng idling away? Do you know that the marriage norm in our country is monogamous?”
Inwardly, he was quite amused by this girl.
“Oh?” Gu Qianxue replied, completely unaware of that.
“Alright, go back with your sister. Since you are a police officer, read more; if not, you will really make a fool of yourself,” Xiao Luo said.
Gu Qianxue responded, “Xiao Luo, I will apply to be moved here so I can see you every day.”
Xiao Luo sighed and said, “What a big blockhead!”
Gu Qianxue reacted calmly like how she usually would to Xiao Luo.
Suddenly, she dashed into Xiao Luo’s arms, which surprised him, and hugged him tightly.
Gu Qianlin widened her eyes and stared at them in disbelief, “Why? Why do you have to choose him?”
Xiao Luo patted Gu Qianxue’s back and said, “Are… are you done?”
Gu Qianxue nuzzled her head further deeper into Xiao Luo’s chest and closed her eyes. She hugged him even tighter now as she had always wanted to hug him. Now that she was about to leave, she could no longer control the desire to give Xiao Luo a huge hug.
Xiao Luo was left speechless.
