TOCH – Chapter 88-89

Chapter 88: Lie to him

Luo Yibei stood still, staring in the direction of her disappearance and then recalled her recent series of strange behavior. His eyes slowly hardened.

At one end of the hallway, Fang Chixia took out her phone and dialed, “Mr. Shi, what’s the matter?”

“Can you speak Italian?” Shi Jinyang asked in greeting.

“I didn’t study it for long.” Fang Chixia answered truthfully.

“Can you handle basic communication?”

“Fortunately, that’s not a big problem.”

“That’s good. You will accompany to Italy for a jewelry conference in two days.”

“Conference?” Fang Chixia was definitely taken aback. She wanted to ask more but the chilly voice of Luo Yibei came from behind, “Who are you talking with?”

The abrupt sound also laden with an indescribable coolness made Fang Chixia jump and the phone in her hand “clatter” dropped on the floor.

She turned around to check it out but was prevented when her body hit a cold wall of flesh. The tip of her nose was painful when she hit a solid muscle.

“Ah, what are you doing?” Fang Chixia rubbed her nose, her voice  filled with a bit of complaint.

“Does it hurt?” Luo Yibei fainly glanced at her small nose and spat out without any expression, “Come here and I will rub it for you.”

After saying so, he leaned and pinned Fang Chixia against the wall on the side. Before she could react, his big hand covered her chest.

His movements were straightforward and he felt no embarrassment in doing such a thing.

Fang Chixia, on the other hand, felt very embarrassed and her face showed her discomfiture.

She took in his hand then reminded him wordlessly “I hit my nose.”

“Right? My mistake.” Luo Yibei pretended to have been enlightened. But instead of moving his hand away, it actually wandered to the hem of her bath towel.

“Don’t do that. Wait, I have a serious matter to talk to you!” Fang Chixia’s face changed with fright and stepped back two steps before the towel was torn off her. Her arms were between them and in panic stopped his movements.

When interrupted, Luo Yibei who was still immersed in that piece of incredible softness his hand touched, had a heavy complexion and felt somewhat uncomfortable.

He wanted to pull her over but Fang Chixia quickly evaded him.

“Just listen to me for a second,” Afraid that he would be talking and messing about, she cautiously adjusted the towel she was wrapped in.

“Who was on the phone just now?” He automatically skipped over her problems and his gaze landed on the phone on the floor.

“A friend.” she answered feigning nonchalance as she hid the mobile phone behind her. “Just a familiar friend.”

“Is that right?” Luo Yibei’s lips rose with a touch of contempt quietly looking at her with his eyes narrowed.

His eyes were already sharp that when he stared at her, it was as if he were interrogating her.

Fang Chixia was having a guilty conscience but her face displayed a lighthearted composure, “Listen to what I have to say first.”

“Say.” Luo Yibei reluctantly leaned against the wall beside him and folded his legs lazily while his eyes fell on her face.

Fang Chixia wanted to inform him of what Shi Jinyang has just mentioned on the phone, but of course, she can’t be honest with him.

After a few moments of silence, she wove another excuse for herself, “I might go to a friend’s house for a couple of days in two days, and I won’t be back in the evening.”




Chapter 89: Early morning raid

She was very careful in asking this while observing his face in silence.

Who knew that Luo Yibei didn’t even think about it and blurted a negative come back, “No”

“Why?” Fang Chixia fumed.

Luo Yibei swept a glance at her face. His thin lips lifted and without batting an eye rejoined, “If you go, how are you going to deal with the nightly routine?”

“Luo Yibei, you are so shameless!” A blush rose on Fang Chixia’s cheeks as she bellowed and pointed at him angrily. She wanted to jump up and bite him.

Luo Yibei only gave her a glance and turned around into the house.

In fact, anything that was an exception was only an excuse.

The true reason behind his rejection, he didn’t voice out.


Fang Chixia, how many more are you hiding from me?

Fang Chixia was so angry at his despotism. When she returned in the room, she didn’t follow him back in their bedroom but slept in a guest room next to theirs.

Paying no mind on Luo Yibei who was waiting for her to put on the dress, she locked the door and fell asleep.

The following day, in order not to confront him, she went to the company early in the morning. From when she got up, she didn’t run into him.

By the time she arrived, Shi Jinyang also happened to come just in time.

At the thought of the even at the restaurant yesterday, she opened her mouth and called out, “Shi Shaoye!”

Shi Jinyang was startled. He turned towards her and curling his lips that evoked a picture of floral colored bewitching lips, he greeted her calmly, “Good morning!”

Fang Chixia looked at him quietly, fumbled through her bag and handed him the bunch of cards he had given her. “These cards are your own VIP cards, aren’t they? Rongxi didn’t give its employees benefits such as these cards either, right?”

Shi Jinyang wasn’t surprised she found out about it. She must have asked about the price after she had a meal.

Since she found it out, he had no reason to deny it, he only smiled, “These are just minor things. Just do your own thing well. You don’t have to worry about it.”

He was totally indifferent to those things, as if that little money meant nothing to him at all.

After saying so, without even giving Fang Chixia the chance to speak, he turned around and headed for his office.

Fang Chixia looked awkwardly at the stack of cards in her hands. Supporting her forehead with her hand, she couldn’t figure out Shi Jinyang’s purpose for giving them to her.

They have only known each other for a few days Ah!

She didn’t’ want to understand so she just tidied up the stuff on her desk ready to start working. A few female colleagues suddenly rushed to her side not only looking very nervous and but also shy. Their eyes were all glowing in pink bubbles.

After sitting on their own office desks, one by one, each took out a mirror to check their own faces. After seeing that their make up was refined enough, they still quickly retouched some, thick enough for an opera.

Fang Chixia was startled at the group’s reaction. She casually asked, “Is somebody coming later?”

“Luo Shao is coming over soon!” The person who was busy applying make up didn’t answer but another female colleague who ran over answered in the passing.

“Luo Shao?” Fang Chixia was startled. She leaped out of her desk and stood up. Her eyes happened to land on a desk near the aisle. She took up a document to cover her face. Before everybody could calm down, she anxiously block her face and turned away from the office.

However, before she could get out, Luo Yibei’s figure suddenly appeared at the big entrance of the office.

The tall figure stood in the middle of the doorway, his eyes lightly sweeping throughout the room.
