Chapter 28 – Let You Experience What It’s Like to Chase a Wife to a Crematorium
Not long after, Lin Yaoyao came back. She looked a bit unhappy as she entered, and sat on the sofa.
Glancing at Ling Tian, she murmured softly, “Why did you rush back? Just to sit at home?”
They should have finished their meal together before returning. Couldn’t they have chatted for a while longer?
Ling Tian ignored Lin Yaoyao, continuing to sift through the data on the tablet, thoroughly eliminating impossible leads.
Seeing Ling Tian’s silence, Lin Yaoyao felt a bit helpless. She knew Ling Tian was not good at expressing himself. She decided to let things be and told him that he hadn’t paid for their meal, and that she had already taken care of it.
“Okay,” Ling Tian just muttered.
Seeing his lack of gratitude, Lin Yaoyao frowned, thinking she had spent quite a bit of money. But she decided it wasn’t worth arguing about with this guy. After all, they might be family soon, so what was there to be so calculative over money?
She gazed at the tablet Ling Tian was using and the special hard drive inserted into it. It struck her that the beautiful woman from the Alliance had given Ling Tian was a set of information on people!
“Why are you searching for people every day? Are you looking for Puppeteers?” Lin Yaoyao asked, moving closer to Ling Tian and sitting next to him. Placing her chin on her palm, she peered at the screen.
Suddenly, she noticed something odd. “Wait a minute! These people … all have the same birthdate as me!”
She spotted the issue immediately. Every person on the screen had the same birth date as her!
“What’s going on?” Ling Tian spoke blandly.
Lin Yaoyao, squinting at the screen, asked, “So … is this why you came to share the rent with me?”
Ling Tian nodded, not denying it.
Observing his agreement, Lin Yaoyao’s brows furrowed further. She whispered, “So … when you said you wanted to ‘protect’ me, it’s because I might be one of the people you’re looking for?”
As she said this, she gazed at Ling Tian’s sharp profile, waiting for his response.
And in response to her waiting, Ling Tian finally uttered a single word, “Yes.”
Lin Yaoyao’s heart skipped a beat, as if suddenly chilled halfway through. She kept staring at Ling Tian’s unchanging profile, feeling a hint of bitterness.
So … what did all this mean?
What about last night?
Was sleeping with me just a one-time thing?
Even after all that, you still don’t see me as significant?
What am I to you?
Lin Yaoyao, visibly upset, stood up, intending to return to her room. However, after standing, she hesitated.
She took a deep breath, repressing all her inner emotions.
“So, what kind of person are you looking for?” she asked, moving to sit across from Ling Tian rather than beside him. “I might be able to help you.”
“Do you have a greater ability than the Alliance?” Ling Tian glanced at her.
Lin Yaoyao was at a loss for words.
Well, if he even knew people from the Alliance, what use was there for her, a rookie cop, to help?
“Then, how can you confirm that I am the person you’re looking for?” Lin Yaoyao inquired further.
“We’ll know in due time,” Ling Tian replied plainly.
If he revealed it now, what if she started pretending? What if, to seek his protection, she pretended to be the person he was seeking? There was also a risk of exposing himself by revealing this information now. Ling Tian wouldn’t take that risk.
So, you won’t even give me a straightforward answer?
You’re just openly stringing me along?
You scoundrel, how can there be a man like you in this world?
Alright, if I happen to be the person you’re looking for, I’ll just hide away. I’ll make you regret it for a lifetime. I’ll let you experience what it’s like to chase a wife to the crematorium!
“What’s in there … Can I have a look?” Lin Yaoyao inquired, casting her gaze towards the small box on the table. It was the one the woman in the red dress had given Ling Tian today.
