Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Lin Yi, I’m done. You should go wash up too.”
“Alright, 1’11 go now.”
Just as Lin Yi was thinking about something, Ji Qingyan called out from upstairs.
Lin Yi stretched and put the Wang family’s matters to the back of his mind. He would think about these things when he had time.
Upstairs, he saw Ji Qingyan coming out of the bathroom.
There was a towel wrapped around her graceful curves, and her fair skin seemed to glow like jade. The two white rabbits in front of her seemed to be about to jump out of her towel.
She was still holding a pipa, half covering her face. She was as elegant and refined as a lotus flower emerging from the water.
She was still holding the hairdryer in her hand. She seemed to be preparing to go back and dry her hair, leaving the bathroom empty.
“We’re already an old couple. Why are you still wrapping yourself in a towel?
It’s so distant. You make it seem like I’m peeking at you.”
“You make it sound like you’re not going to peek.”
“What are you talking about? Is there no trust between us at all?”
“Tsk, you can say whatever you want. Regardless, I won’t let you see anything. Hehehe…”
Ji Qingyan returned to her room, and Lin Yi went in to wash up.
However, because of his injuries, he returned to his room to rest after washing his face, brushing his teeth, and washing his feet.
In the bedroom, Ji Qingyan dried her hair and applied a facial mask while reading a book.
Unknowingly, more than half an hour passed, and Ji Qingyan realized that Lin Yi had yet to come out. She couldn’t help but feel a little strange.
Previously, Lin Yi took a shower and was done in twenty minutes at most.
Why was he taking more than half an hour today?
“When did this guy become such a clean freak?”
At the thought of this, Ji Qingyan’s face turned red.
It was said that absence made the heart grow fonder. Did he have ulterior motives for taking such a long shower?
The more Ji Qingyan thought about it, the redder her face became.
The two of them had been apart for such a long time that Ji Qingyan silently acknowledged that they were going to sleep together today.
This was their usual routine/ Even if she refused, Lin Yi would still come over, so today she didn’t resist the idea. After taking a shower, she kept reading and waited for Lin Yi to arrive.
“Even if you’re clean, you have to sleep obediently. I won’t let you do anything bad. Hmph!”
The more she thought about it, the more nervous and excited she became.
They were both adults. No one could control their desires.
Even so, after waiting for another twenty minutes, Lin Yi still hadn’t come out.
She looked at her watch and realized that it had been more than an hour since he had entered the shower.
No matter how serious Lin Yi was, he shouldn’t have taken more than an hour, right?
After some thought, she quietly got out of bed and realized that the lights in the bathroom had been turned off.
‘Huh? Is he done?’
Puzzled, she quietly walked over and knocked on the door, only to find that there was no movement at all.
He quietly opened the bathroom door and found that there was no one inside. Lin Yi was not here.
“Where did he go? Did he go back to his room? That’s impossible, right?”
Muttering to herself, Ji Qingyan looked in the direction of Lin Yi’s room.
However, there was no light coming out from the gap under the door. The lights in the house were off.
“Why aren’t you sleeping in the middle of the night? Where did you go?”
“Did he go back to his room by himself? That’s unlikely. This doesn’t seem like his style.”
Ji Qingyan could not figure it out no matter how hard she thought about it. Unexpectedly, she walked to Lin Yi’s door and knocked on it.
Clang! Clang! Clang!
Clang! Clang! Clang!
Ji Qingyan knocked a few more times and decided to call Lin Yi if there was still no response.
“What’s wrong?” Lin Yi’s sleepy voice came from inside.
Stunned, she blinked her large, beautiful eyes.
He actually went back to his room?
At this moment, the door opened from the inside.
Lin Yi scratched his head and looked at Ji Qingyan with sleepy eyes.
“It’s already so late. Why aren’t you sleeping?”
After saying that, he even yawned.
“N-nothing…” Ji Qingyan replied haphazardly.
“I saw that you hadn’t moved for so long, so 1 came over to check on you.”
“I’m already an adult, what could happen to me?” Lin Yi said.
“I’m just a little sleepy. 1 came back to sleep after washing up. Hurry up and sleep too. It’s getting late. I still have to work tomorrow.”
“Oh, I’m going back to bed. Good night.”
Ji Qingyan turned around and left as Lin Yi closed the door.
Ji Qingyan looked around and frowned. The scene in front of her was completely different from what she had imagined.
Upon returning to her room, she tossed and turned, unable to fall asleep.
With Lin Yi’s personality, he wouldn’t sleep alone after not seeing her for so long. What was going on?
She thought about it for the latter half of the night, yet Ji Qingyan could not figure out what was going on. It was only when it was almost dawn that she fell asleep in a daze.
The next morning, when Ji Qingyan woke up, it was already past nine in the morning.
“Why are there dark circles under your eyes? Didn’t you sleep well last night?”
“Uh… I didn’t sleep well after 1 was woken up by a phone call in the middle of the night.”
“Then hurry up and wash up. I’ll go cook.”
Ji Qingyan replied absent-mindedly.
Even so, the events of the night before were still swirling in her head. She still couldn’t figure out what was going on.
He didn’t tease her at all. It was too strange. She had waited for him for nothing.
Could it be that he was just too tired from the business trip?
While brushing her teeth, Ji Qingyan pursed her lips. She felt that this was the only possibility.
It was the same when she came back from a business trip. When she returned home, she immediately covered her head and slept. She was not in the mood to do anything else.
At the thought of this, Ji Qingyan’s mood improved significantly.
She decided to give him another chance tonight.
‘Hmm, don’t keep me waiting too long.’
After freshening up, she went to the dining room for dinner.
“What are your plans for today?”
“I’m going back to the company to check on things. There are many things that I need to deal with.”
“Alright, let’s go to the supermarket tonight. The fridge at home is almost empty.”
After dinner, the two of them drove out.
When they arrived at the office, Lin Yi called Qi Xianzhao, He Yuanyuan, and Tian Yan to the office.
“President Lin, you were looking for us.”
Lin Yi nodded. “How’s the imported timber deal going?”
“The total amount of the contract is 1,360,000,000 USD. The profit is about 1 to 3 million USD. It’s almost negligible,” Qi Xianzhao said.
“The red pines and white pines imported from Russia have already begun to be loaded. They will be transported to us in a week or half a month.”
“Bazil has also started loading the ships, but their shipment will be slower. It will take at least a month. According to my estimation, it will take about 40 to 50 days to transport the goods to our side.”
Lin Yi tapped his fingers on the table and pondered for a few seconds before saying,
“It’s been almost a week since the contract was signed.. Did anything happen in between?”
