Chapter 12: Get Rid of Him
“Oh, what a troublesome woman!”
Hanging up the phone, Liu Yanbo sat helplessly on the edge of the flower bed next to the Ruomeng Group’s gate.
Liu Yanbo didn’t want to come in the first place, and when he came, he was stopped by the security guard. If he hadn’t seen him coming in a taxi, the security guard would have treated him like an abominable rat.
With no other choice, he called Yin Hanruo, asking her to come down. Little did he know Yin Hanruo actually really wanted him to go up and fetch her. She asked her secretary to come down and bring him to her just in case he got lost.
Yin Hanruo’s secretary came quickly, Liu Yanbo hadn’t even finished smoking his cigarette. With the sound of high heels, a pair of beautiful black silky legs appeared in his line of sight: “Are you Mr. Liu?”
Liu Yanbo raised his head and uttered a feeble “Mm-hmm”.
“Then come with me, please.”
Liu Yanbo followed the secretary to the third floor. As soon as he got out of the elevator, the secretary said, “Mr. Liu, the president’s office is the room on the right at the end of the hallway. You’ll have to go there by yourself, as I won’t be able to accompany you.”
The floor was quiet, the staff worked on other floors.
As soon as Liu Yanbo arrived at the office’s door, he could hear a quarrel inside. Hurriedly, he pushed the door open and walked in.
As soon as Liu Yanbo entered, he was blocked by two bodyguards. It had been deliberately arranged by Liu Fei.
In the office, Yin Hanruo was about to get up, when Shangguan Qingmeng pressed on her shoulder and signaled her not to worry. Liu Fei looked at Liu Yanbo with a mischievous smile.
Yin Hanruo’s concern, Shangguan Qingmeng’s curiosity, Liu Fei’s craftiness, and the two bodyguards’ arrogance, all these subtle changes in their eyes were noticed by Liu Yanbo.
Women are really unreliable. What do you do if you say yes? Liu Yanbo complained in his heart, he had guessed the situation.
Five pairs of eyes were fixed on Liu Yanbo, each with different thoughts.
Yin Hanruo was afraid that Liu Yanbo would walk away, after all, she had promised him that she’d handle these problems herself. Even if he turns his head and leaves now, it would be fair; but she was also worried that if Liu Yanbo stayed, he would be bullied.
Shangguan Qingmeng, of course, didn’t like drama. But she wanted to see what kind of man Liu Yanbo was and how he would deal with the current situation. She was a little curious about why Yin Hanruo chose him.
Liu Fei’s thoughts were the simplest. He just wanted to pretend to be B*.
[T/N: Pretending to be B = show off or boast]
As for the two bodyguards, eh… who cares about dogs’ opinions?
Liu Yanbo smiled, like most of the time, very gently. He didn’t go any further, nor did he step back, let alone speak. He just leaned his back against the door frame and played with the leaves he had pulled from the potted plant outside.
Couldn’t you react normally, advance or retreat, straightforwardly? Liu Yanbo undoubtedly confused the people present, all with their own expectations.
“Get out!” Liu Fei couldn’t help it. He jumped up and roared.
Liu Yanbo turned a deaf ear, not even lifting his eyelids. He kept playing with his precious leaves.
“Your man is very interesting!”
Shangguan Qingmeng’s voice wasn’t loud, but they heard it. Yin Hanruo blushed, angrily saying, “Now’s not the time for jokes.”
Liu Fei’s face also turned red, flushing with anger. Shangguan Qingmeng and Yin Hanruo’s words could be heard clearly, it greatly humiliated him: “Throw him out!”
“Spoiled brat…” One of the bodyguards snorted coldly before reaching out to grab Liu Yanbo’s arm.
The two bodyguards were as strong as an ox, they were brawny and had short, thick necks, the muscles under their clothes bulged. After being thrown out by the burly men, you certainly wouldn’t stay intact.
Seeing the bodyguard approach Liu Yanbo, Yin Hanruo got a little anxious. For her, it was no problem for him to beat up two or three thugs. She had seen it. But in the face of such professionally trained bodyguards, she wasn’t optimistic about her husband winning at all.
Shangguan Qingmeng struggled to resist her best friend’s pleading eyes. She wasn’t afraid to intervene, but curious about that ordinary-looking man’s strength, who could smile so lightly under such circumstances.
Just when Shangguan Qingmeng hesitated, the bodyguard’s hand grabbed Liu Yanbo’s arm.
The moment he caught hold of it, he exerted force to pull Liu Yanbo up and push him out. But even after furtively trying several times, Liu Yanbo was still, leaning motionlessly against the door frame.
“Didn’t you say you were going to go shopping? Are you going or not? If not, I’ll leave. I still have work to do!”
Liu Yanbo looked up at Yin Hanruo, ignoring the bodyguard who was grabbing his arm.
Are you acting or just really stupid? Can’t you see what’s happening? Yin Hanruo was anxious and annoyed.
Liu Yanbo stood up straight, smiled and asked, “Are you going or not?”
As soon as Liu Yanbo stood upright, he grabbed the bodyguard holding onto his arm and slammed his back on the ground. The sound was thunderous, of a big man more than 1.9 meters tall.
Did Liu Yanbo make a move?
At least, no one saw. His right hand was still in his trouser pocket, and his left hand was busy turning the green leaf.
They didn’t know what was going on, except for the bodyguard sitting on the ground. The moment Liu Yanbo stood upright, a sudden force burst from him.
Liu Yanbo simply turned a blind eye to the bodyguard sitting on the ground and looking at him in horror. He didn’t care.
Liu Fei looked glum. He didn’t understand what had happened, but he was sure his bodyguard had lost. And it was absolutely impossible that his family paid a lot of money to hire a soft-footed shrimp.
“Who on earth are you?”
Even if Liu Fei was a spoiled brat, he wasn’t an incompetent fool. He wanted to send a message to Liu Yanbo. If you are someone I can’t mess with, I’ll hold my temper and let it pass.
Liu Yanbo didn’t seem to receive it, Yin Hanruo was the only one in his eyes: “I said, if you want to go, at least give me a word!”
Ignored! What could be more shameful than total disregard?
Liu Fei’s face reddened, he finally got fed up, and let out a roar of pure anger:
“What are you still doing? Get rid of him!”
The bodyguard, who had not yet tried, hesitated. His companion who fell to the ground was giving him crazy winks, signaling to not move rashly, but he had to listen to their boss. At that moment, he was the most embarrassing thing in the office, in a dilemma.
“That’s enough! If anyone makes another move, I will throw them into the river and feed the fish.”
“Will you really get involved in this?” Liu Fei was livid as he turned to Shuangguan Qingmeng.
Shangguan Qingmeng seemed to smile, “Why don’t you try me?”
“Tch… Let’s see how long you’ll be able to protect them.” Liu Fei viciously nodded his head and walked out of the office.
Liu Fei was curbed by Shangguan Qingmeng, not only because the Liu family was slightly weaker than Shangguan’s, but also because of Shangguan Qingmeng’s own strength. A few years ago, she’d beaten up Liu Fei and he couldn’t get out of bed for two months.
After the flies were driven away, the office cheered.
“Hanruo, you’ve found a good husband, why don’t you lend him to me some time?”
