Chapter 361: Investigation
Li Qi held onto a big bag of delicious steaming stuffed buns and could not help but swallow his saliva.
He truly wanted to head back into the guard room and gossip with the guys. Their commander was talented in making buns! Not to mention, the buns smelled delicious.
Who said that even though the commander was an outstanding man, the woman that had to live her lives with the commander would be miserable?
Their commander was willing to personally head into the kitchen and cook to capture his little wife’s heart, making him look very much like a family-oriented husband. It was no wonder that the group of single dogs inside could not find themselves a wife.
Zhong Nuannuan was not a melodramatic person. However, whenever she was around Chi Yang, she became as dramatic as possible.
She knew very well that her man was so outstanding that no ordinary opponent could ever hurt him. Even if she were the one that wanted to hurt him, it would be difficult for her if he was unwilling.
However, somehow, whenever she thought about him executing a mission and facing danger, she would feel reluctant and depressed.
Perhaps this was what they called being overly-sentimental.
After living two lives, it was her first time feeling this sort of emotion.
It was not at all pleasant.
“What’s the matter, kiddo?” Chi Yang sensed that his young wife was somewhat depressed. He could not help but reach out to nudge her pretty little nose.
Zhong Nuannuan nestled into his arms and stretched out her hand to tightly encircle his thin waist.
“Big Brother Chi Yang, you promised me before that you wouldn’t get hurt.”
Chi Yang did not expect her to still be worried about this even when she was about to leave. It made him feel terribly moved.
He used one of his hands to stroke her back, while the other hand rubbed his favorite furry head. Then, he said softly, “Don’t worry. I won’t get hurt. There are very few people in this world that can hurt me. I promise you I’ll come back in the same condition as I left. Okay?”
“Alright,” Zhong Nuannuan nodded lightly as she buried her face inside Chi Yang’s chest, listening to his strong and powerful heartbeat.
Finally, Zhong Nuannuan left.
She stared on as the person that was watching her leave got smaller and smaller; At the same time, the void in her heart grew larger.
The anxious feeling in her heart made her awfully jittery.
It was a pity that this was not her world. Otherwise, she would have definitely killed dozens of enemies just to calm the emotions that she could not vent out. Instead, she was forced to let these feelings sink into her heart like a pit of quicksand.
After getting out of the car, Zhong Nuannuan dialed a number on her phone. Almost as soon as the phone started ringing, the person on the other end of the phone picked up.
Zhong Nuannuan was startled. “Big Bro, were you playing around with your phone?”
On the other end of the phone, a peal of very sinister yet pleasantly low toned laughter sounded. “I was holding onto the phone and kept looking at it. I was wondering if you, the little unscrupulous person, were going to call me. Then, you actually did.”
Zhong Nuannuan could not help but giggle. “I’d have to be a dog to believe you!”
The person on the other end of the phone was startled.
“You haven’t called me in 1 month, 13 days, and 16 hours now. It’s impossible that you’re calling to ask me how I’m doing, right? Come on, tell me what’s the matter?”
“… Big Brother, do you have to articulate every single thing?”
“I’ll only be articulate if it’s about you. If it’s any other person, it won’t matter much to me. I could, at best, merely nod my head.”
Zhong Nuannuan was taken aback for a moment because of the other party’s loving tone; his fondness for her was simply indisputable at this point. She also knew that her rejection would have no effect on him, hence she stopped trying to argue with him on this topic.
“Big Brother, I need you to investigate something for me.”
“Sure,” The person on the other line agreed without hesitation.
