Chapter 30 – Paparazzi
Before Mu Xiulun could grasp the unmistakable bulge between the woman’s legs, Su Jishi pushed him aside and stepped back to a safe distance.
Mu Xiulun looked at her lower body strangely, but the long skirt was in place, and the light gauze hung in a proper arc, which made it impossible to see the hidden secret at all.
Am I thinking too much?
Su Jishi had no idea that the secret in her skirt was almost exposed. She raised her hand and tucked strands of hair behind her ears. In everyone’s eye, she was gentle and graceful.
“Shall we go now?” She asked.
“… Well, it’s getting late, I’ll take you back.” Mu Xiulun could only temporarily suppress his doubts.
Before leaving, he made an unexpected move—he called the waiter and have all the dishes that had hardly moved packed.
This was the first time Su Jishi had seen a domineering president pack his leftovers from dinner.
Maybe he is just really thrifty?
Or maybe he loves seafood so bad?
The waiter, however, was not surprised. He packed all the dishes quickly and faced Mu Xiulun.
“Mr. Mu, will the dishes still be delivered to Sun Village?”
“Yes.” He nodded in reply and signed his name smartly on the bill.
When Mu Xiulun ordered to deliver the leftovers to Sun Village, his second uncle, who had been silent in the background since the heated exchange between him and Su Jishi, suddenly muttered something and looked scornfully at Mu Xiulun.
But Su Jishi was even more surprised to see Mu Xiulun ignore him at all. Whatever insult his second uncle threw, Mu Xiulun must have heard it a hundred times already.
It seems that this “Sun Village” meant something to him. Su Jishi secretly wrote down this strange place’s name in her mind and planned to find out what it is once she got home.
Why did Mu Xiulun send the rest of the food there?
The two left the restaurant and entered the elevator side by side.
The elevator went straight from the revolving restaurant on the top floor to the underground garage. After each date, Mu Xiulun always takes Su Jin home himself.
He pulled open the car door for her and watched her gather her skirts before sitting in the front seat.
Mu Xiulun was about to head inside his car too when a flash of red light caught his and Su Jishi’s attention…
Beyond their notice, a small car was parked several rows away contained two paparazzi crouched inside. They were taking their date photos using nighttime shooting mode.
Mu Xiulun had long been used to this invasion of privacy. This was just natural since one of them is a popular actress and the other is the son of a mining tycoon.
It would be strange if there were no paparazzi to follow.
For three years, Su Jin had been keeping a bunch of flies beside her on every date. However, she didn’t care. Instead, she welcomed their presence.
These paparazzi did not disclose the photos directly after they had taken them. Instead, they always asked him for a price to redeem the photos.
In this way, once and for all, his adoptive mother will get the news of the couple. Then, she would tone down her vigilance towards him when she sees that he was so addicted to keeping a female star, even paying paparazzi to keep their photos to secrecy.
However, he did not care, Su Jin herself did not care, but Su Jishi was different. She couldn’t tolerate paparazzi the same way she couldn’t tolerate eating vegetables!
Her eyebrows lifted and a pair of beautiful eyes looked past the darkness.
Clearly there were hundreds of cars parked in the underground garage, but Su Jishi’s line of sight accurately captured the humble black Volkswagen Santana car.
Inside the car, Dai Wei, a veteran of Yang Wei’s studio, scolded his companion and quickly dropped his head.
Beside him, Xiao Liu, an intern for the first time on a “mission”, sat there with his eyes fixed blankly on the window.
This was the fool who forgot to turn off the camera’s red light mode, causing a flash of red light to expose their position.
“Get down quickly!” Dia Wei grabbed Xiao Liu’s shoulder and forced his stunned body to lie low.
At first, he thought that Xiao Liu would act in his own, so Da Wei didn’t bother to move him. But when the moment he realized that he was the only one crouching, he reached out to touch him only to find out that he was shaking.
Xiao Liu was terrified of the glance Su Jishi gave across his camera. He couldn’t move!
“Brother Wei…” Xiao Liu trembled, holding his precious camera in his arms and crying, “I think Su Jin saw me.”
“Don’t be silly!” Dai Wei lowered his voice. “With so many cars here and so dark, how could she possibly see you when she didn’t even know our exact location? She is not a God!!”
Yes, Su Jishi was not a god, but Su Jishi had an intuition that heavenly bodies didn’t have. She experienced going to a no-man’s land by herself, bringing with her a car, some equipment, and GPS only.
Moreover, she was besieged by barbaric ignorant villagers and managed to brush past hungry wolves. It was through her divine intuition that she pursued advantages and avoided dangers over and over again.
Inside the car, Dai Wei and Xiao Liu held their breath, afraid to look up. What they needed to do was wait quietly for Su Jin and her financial backer to leave.
However, when Xiao Liu kept praying to the Souls of the Emperors, the Virgin Mother of Jesus, the Holy Spirit, sounds of ghostly footsteps approaching reached his ears…
