Chapter 143: Means of Retaliation (1)
The elevator went down once again, leaving only Qiao Moyu and Ye Peicheng in the hallway.
The atmosphere once again warmed up. Qiao Moyu’s nose was filled with Ye Peicheng’s clear and clean scent.
She felt a bit uncomfortable, so she twisted her body a bit.
Ye Peicheng also loosed Qiao Moyu by a bit. He lowered his head to look at the girl in his arms. Her cheeks were tinted red, her makeup-less face clean and pure, her eyes looking up at him. She seemed to be a bit muddled, and slightly at a loss. With that view presented before him, his heart skipped a beat and he couldn’t help but lean down and give her a kiss on the cheek
After that, he finally let her go and smoothed down her messy hair, saying: “I have the walnut to my father. He wanted me to tell you that when you have the time, to please come visit my house.”
Qiao Moyu felt uncertain. Why did Father Ye invite her to his house?”
She had sent walnut to him because, as Ye Peicheng had said so before, his father believed in superstition. Therefore, she predicted that after receiving the walnuts, Father Ye would take the initiative to go find her because he could not understand the symbols engraved on the walnuts. Then, she could make up a story to have him avoid going on the plane a month later, thereby avoiding the airplane crash.
She didn’t think that Father Ye was so into feudal superstition that he had actually invited her to his house!
Moreover, he could have just called her to talk about it! Yet, Father Ye had actually attached so much importance to it that he asked Ye Peicheng relay the message in person!
“Oh.” Qiao Moyu acknowledged his words with a bit of guilt in her heart. Actually, she didn’t know how to calculate people’s futures. She only knew some things because of the original book’s plot!
Ye Peicheng, hearing Qiao Moyu’s unclear answer, thought that she was afraid of meeting his parents. Therefor, he tried to reassure her: “Little Moyu, don’t worry. My father only wants to thank you for the walnut, there is no other meaning. It has nothing to do with our relationship, so don’t feel stressed!”
How can there be no pressure? What if he asks her about his house’s feng shui layout? She wouldn’t be able to say a word! Wouldn’t this ruin the reputation of her Spiritual Void Sect?
However, there was no way Qiao Moyu could tell Ye Peicheng about these troubles. She only nodded her head: “Okay, then I will go after I finish filming tomorrow!” The earlier she goes, the earlier she can get it over with!
“Bring Luo Luo with you too.” Ye Peicheng added on. “I will go with you to pick him up.”
This time, the request was purely of his own volition. By taking Luo Luo, Qiao Moyu can show her good-naturedness. His father would probably have a better impression of her after seeing that she had adopted an orphan.
Qiao Moyu was not thinking in the direction as Ye Peicheng. She nodded and replied: “En, I got it. Everyone in the Taoist school has to be there! However, should we wear the Taoist robes?”
“…” Ye Peicheng felt a headache and rubbed his temples: “No need!”
He patted Qiao Moyu’s head: “I am leaving now. You should rest early.”
Qiao Moyu nodded, her lips pulled up in a smile and her eyes forming crescents: “Mhm.”
Ye Peicheng’s adam’s apple bobbed, and he wanted to kiss her again. However, he then thought that he shouldn’t push too far, so he only dropped a sentence before leaving. “Give me a reply within three days.”
Ye Peicheng went downstairs, but he didn’t continue down to the underground parking lot. Instead, he went to the property management office…
Qiao Moyu thought that she would have trouble falling asleep because of all of the things that had happened today; however, it turned that she was able to sleep once she hit the pillow.
She was woken up by the alarm the next morning. When she turned on her phone, several consecutive dings alerted her of unread notifications.
Qiao Moyu was confused, so she opened up Weibo and discovered that she was in the hot search rankings.
