Chapter 93: Powerful Girl
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Qin Ruo was still staring at the beautiful and mysterious girl opposite him in bewilderment, still trying to recall her name. After a moment, he looked at her again and asked with uncertainty, “Xinqin?”
Her eyes lit up as she nodded fervently. Without saying a single word, she sized Qin Ruo up from top to bottom, looking puzzled.
“Brother Qin, why is it you are more handsome in real life compared to your in-game character?”
As soon as she ended her question, Brother Da sighed loudly beside him.
“Hah! Now I know that the young people of our country are ruined in the hands of scum like you. I’m warning you in advance Qin Ruo! Remove her from my sight within three seconds or I’ll steal her away from you!”
Qin Ruo broke out in cold sweat.
This guy did not seem like he was joking around, could this little devil be free to do whatever she wanted? For Brother Da’s sake, Qin Ruo grabbed Xinqin’s hand hastily and prepared to rush out of the office.
However, it was too late.
Xinqin initially did not pay much attention to Qin Ruo’s overweight colleague. However, after hearing his remark, she gave Qin Ruo a devilish grin before asking, “Brother Qin, this uncle is a colleague of yours too?”
Brother Da’s overly dramatic expression was wiped off his face as he froze; he could feel his heart pounding violently. The imaginary sound of glass breaking could be heard.
Seconds later, he grabbed Xinqin and dashed out of the office. From a distance, Brother Da’s angry growls akin to a wolf could be heard.
“Uncle?! I’m only twenty-five years old! You wicked little girl! Don’t stop me…” A few colleagues hurriedly held Brother Da back who was in a frenzy. He continued roaring, “Get back here you wicked little girl! How dare you call me ‘uncle’ when I’m not even that old! Don’t try to stop me, I’m going to summon the God of Thunder to strike her down with lightning.”
Outside the office, the little devil hid behind a wall and giggled incessantly. When she realized Qin Ruo was still around, she stuck out her tongue at him then asked, “That fatty also plays H&G? Is he a Zephyr Swordmaster?”
Qin Ruo nodded wordlessly. Deep down, he thought these comedians were made for each other; one liked to prank others and the other was not much better at keeping his emotions to himself.
With a sigh, he returned to the topic at hand.
“Why are you here? You don’t have to attend class today?”
When she replied, her cheeks did not flush and her breath appeared normal. However, Qin Ruo noticed that her eyes were darting left and right, indicating that she was lying. Regardless, he was not bothered to call her out on it.
“You came to look for your sister? She’s on the upper floor, the elevator is on the left.”
“I know, I know. I have been here for a few times.” Li Xinqin interrupted Qin Ruo and stared at him. “I’m here to see you! How did my idea go? Was it good?”
Qin Ruo held his head with his hands in frustration.
This little brat still hasn’t given up? She keeps bugging me to go after her sister! Good grief! This kid’s imagination is too far-fetched. I can’t believe she’s skipping classes to look for me just for this matter.
Without hesitation, he grabbed her shoulders and turned her over to face the elevator then pushed her toward it by holding her neck. At the same time, he chided her. “Kid, you need to drop this matter! Your sister will not be left on the shelf. I’m certain you will be able to find a good brother-in-law. So you should not be overthinking and causing a commotion…” He added a warning. “Go back to school. If you skip classes again, I will not call your sister anymore!”
“Hmph! I’m not overthinking! That’s just because my teacher taught us that… We have to work hard so that we will get good things… Ouch… Be gentle… You’re hurting me…”
Qin Ruo awkwardly released his grip.
“But I’m not a ‘thing’. Besides, your sister’s love life is none of your concern, kiddo.”
It’s not like her sister has been searching… This brat… Yet she’s denying that she’s worrying over nothing?
Li Xinqin turned around to face him with a look of defiance before retorting, “If you are on good terms with my sister, that would make you my brother-in-law! How am I overthinking? Hmph. If it’s anyone else, that person would certainly not be as good as you. That’s why I mustn’t give up and do my best to help you get my sister!” After she said her piece in her clear and sweet voice, the elevator door opened!
Facing the elevator, there were more than ten colleagues in it whose jaws were dropped as they stared at this beautiful girl that was blocking the entrance. As with Qin Ruo, they were stunned by the little brat’s declaration.
One of them walked out of the elevator, with the sound of her high heels going “click-clack” rhythmically.
The remaining colleagues gave Qin Ruo a look of awe before ascending to the upper floors of the company as the elevator door closed.
“Young lady, who is your elder sister?”
The person who walked out of the elevator glared at Qin Ruo. Naturally, Qin Ruo averted his gaze to somewhere else while trying to be as calm as possible despite feeling uncomfortable. This woman is Zheng Xiaoxiao, Qin Ruo’s colleague.
“Why should I tell you?”
As Zheng Xiaoxiao exited the elevator, Li Xinqin realized that this woman’s beauty was parallel to hers. Noticing that she seemed close to Qin Ruo, her expression stiffened.
Under Li Xinqin’s startling gaze, Zheng Xiaoxiao casually walked up to Qin Ruo’s side and reached out to grab his arm.
At that moment, not only did Qin Ruo become nervous all of a sudden, but the little devil was also alarmed. Her heart nearly jumped out of her chest. She feared that the next thing the woman would say was words from a television drama such as, “I am his fiancée,” or “I’m his girlfriend, and of course I need to know who is pursuing my boyfriend.”
If that was the case, Li Xinqin would definitely be embarrassed, but fortunately…
Zheng Xiaoxiao held Qin Ruo’s arm, smiled, and winked at Li Xinqin. “He is the little boy who I personally brought up. If you want to set him up with your elder sister, shouldn’t you be talking to me instead? Perhaps, if we could get along, I could give you some nice information about this bad boy here. Hmm? What say you?”
Li Xinqin’s eyes lit up suddenly.
On the other hand, Qin Ruo’s face darkened as he put on a grim smile and thought, ‘No wonder she’s the most powerful woman in our department. With a single sentence, she managed to subdue this hostile girl. It seems like I’m going to be facing more difficulties soon.’
