The Mysterious Heiress: Researcher In Disguise - chapter 370
The man was so excited that he seemed as if he wanted Fu Zhi to humiliate him for all she was worth. After all, compared to other rich women, Fu Zhi was prettier.
“If you don’t believe me, you can inspect me first. Come on, feel me. Once you’ve inspected me, I’m sure you won’t regret your choice!”
Fu Zhi was startled.
When he reached out to grab Fu Zhi’s wrist, Fu Zhi quickly took two steps back.
‘What the hell is he doing? I’m still a kid!’
The photo that was swatted away by Fu Zhi fluttered to the floor.
Just as the man was about to say something, he suddenly felt a chill down his spine, and his blood turned cold.
The series of footsteps behind him came to a stop.
Slowly, ever so slowly, the man turned his head back and met the gaze of a delicate-looking man.
With just one glance, he could tell that the man was not someone he could or should mess with.
Li Nanli and Liu Mi did not say anything and just stared at the man.
“Is there anything I can help you with, sir?”
Li Nanli ignored him. He looked at Fu Zhi, who was standing in a trance not far away, and extended his hand.
“Come over here, Zhizhi.”
The expression on his face was cold, but his voice was gentle and warm.
Liu Mi let out a sigh. Then, he looked at the nude photo on the floor.
Fu Zhi had no idea why, but she suddenly felt guilty.
This occasion reminded her of the soap opera she used to watch with Xu Wei—the wife had brought bodyguards to beat up the mistress and her husband once.
Fu Zhi did not know what to say, but she knew that if she did not do as Li Nanli said, things would not end well for her.
Thus, she ran up to him and said, “Trust me. There’s nothing between him and me, and I didn’t cheat on you! I’m innocent!”
Li Nanli wrapped his arm around her waist, pulling her into his embrace, and replied, “I trust you, Zhizhi.”
Fu Zhi felt relieved.
She was not a sl*t!
Li Nanli seemed rather unperturbed by the incident. Before he left with Fu Zhi, he gave Liu Mi a signal.
Liu Mi picked the photo up from the floor and looked at it. The physique of the man was not as good as Li Nanli’s, and he was not good-looking either. He did not understand how he’d still had the audacity to harass Fu Zhi.
Lifting his head from the photo, Liu Mi looked at the man with a sadistic smile slowly spreading across his face.
Li Nanli led Fu Zhi out of the hotel through a small alley.
The environment in the hotel was noisy.
In the attic not far away, Bai Miao was reproaching Bai Yao for investing recklessly. Then, she seemed to see out of the corner of her eyes that Fu Zhi was being led away from the hotel by a man.
‘Fu Zhi? What’s she doing here? Isn’t she supposed to be at the bar with Zhiheng?’
With that thought in mind, Bai Miao walked to the window.
Dumbfounded, Bai Yao asked, “What’s wrong?”
She looked in the direction of Bai Miao’s gaze, but she could not see anyone in the alley.
Bai Miao thought that maybe she had mistaken someone else for Fu Zhi. After all, Fu Zhi should be having a fun time with her son right now.
After Fu Zhi got in the car, Li Nanli’s face turned grim in an instant.
Sitting in the back seat, Fu Zhi tried to get her bag, which was on the front seat.
Then, a muffled thud rang out, as if something had dropped to the carpet of the car. Piqued by curiosity, Fu Zhi lowered her head, and her eyes widened.
Before she could do anything, Li Nanli entered the car and saw the thing on the carpet as well.
It was a key card, and Fu Zhi reckoned that the man must have slipped it into her pocket just now.
Her heart skipped a beat, and she felt like she was the cheating wife who had gotten caught red-handed by her husband. That said, it did not matter, as Fu Zhi was going to throw the key card away. As long as she was fast enough, her boyfriend would not see the key card!
However, when Li Nanli thought that Fu Zhi had disregarded his warning and taken off her face mask and he recalled the behavior of the man, he smacked her hand and said with a straight face, “You still want to take it? Could you be interested in him after seeing his naked body? Is that why you want to go meet him in the room?”
He squinted his eyes and added, “So, did I interrupt you two?”
Fu Zhi was astounded.
Li Nanli had said that he would believe in her, so why would he say something like that? Was it because of the key card?
Li Nanli looked at her calmly.
Yes, it was because of the key card.
He acted as if he did not care because he did not want Fu Zhi to go away with the man. Now that the man was about to be sent to Africa, Li Nanli revealed his true self.
Fu Zhi pressed her lips firmly and said, “I just wanted to throw the card away.”
“So you think I’ll be happy if you throw away the room card?”
Fu Zhi said, “Should I call the Anti-Piracy and Pornography Working Committee then?”
Li Nanli sneered as he looked at her.
It was apparent to Fu Zhi that Li Nanli was not satisfied with her answer.
Fu Zhi did not know what to do anymore. Her boyfriend was grumpy and moody.
She had no idea what to do to comfort him.
Truth be told, she had not seen much of the photo, but…
Fu Zhi glanced at her grumpy boyfriend.
There was a fake smile on Li Nanli’s face, and Fu Zhi surmised that what he needed was probably not a girlfriend but a mom.
Thus, Fu Zhi made up her mind and said, “Let’s break up. I think I’ve learned how to love from you.”
She then said, her expression serious and stern, “Although there’s still a lot more for me to learn, you’re not a good boyfriend. I’m thinking about changing boyfriends before I keep learning.”
Li Nanli was stunned.
‘I taught you how to fall in love, and now you’re going to look for another man?’
Well, Fu Zhi was not an unreasonable person. She looked at Li Nanli seriously and said in an earnest voice, “Students should show as much respect to their teachers as they do to their fathers. I will not forget everything you’ve taught me.”
Li Nanli was stunned once again.
‘I want to be your husband, yet you treat me as your father?’
“When I finally learn how to fall in love, we can compare notes when we have time.”
Li Nanli did not know what to say.
He tightened his arm around Fu Zhi’s waist, put his chin on her shoulder, and said, “I don’t want to break up with you.”
Fu Zhi replied, “Well, you can say no, but I’m just informing you.”
“But Zhizhi, what you’re doing right now is not right,” Li Nanli said. “In the past, you would have been punished with a ducking stool.”
Fu Zhi said, “We are living in the 21st century now.”
“Then, you need to give me some time to get used to it. Besides, I have to teach you everything, and I’m sure you don’t want to give up halfway either, right?”
Meanwhile, on the top floor of the building…
As the organizer, Mu Changqing was very much looking forward to the arrival of Pure Feather. Not only had he invited the most famous local orchestra, but he had also prepared a scrumptious meal for her.
However, time passed by minutes and seconds, yet they still did not receive any news from Pure Feather. He was getting more and more anxious, but there was nothing he could do other than urge his staff to contact Pure Feather.
It was already 8:30 p.m. Pure Feather had promised him that she would arrive at 7:30 p.m, yet she still had not shown up.
“Dad, why don’t you give Master Pure Feather a call? My friends are all looking forward to meeting her. You must not make me lose face in front of them again!” Mu Chenxi said, pouting her mouth.
