Unexpected Second Chance At Love Book 1 Chapter 330
Inside her office, Yue Ling decides to ignore her obvious secretary. Walking to her desk, her eyes catches a glimpse of three white boxes set on top of the table.
She furrow her brows and walks over to them. She had only arrived earlier, so who could have put these here?
Taking a seat on one of the white couches, she observes the three boxes. Each box had the same silky white ribbon wrapping it securely, but they were all in different sizes.
Reaching for the smallest box, she realized it was not the same as the other two. She felt the suede outer appearance of it and a faint smile curl on her lip. This is indeed a jewelry box.
Lifting the lid up, the sparkle inside took her by surprise. It was a dainty two-layer necklace. The first layer wraps around in tiny rows of diamonds as the second layer chains slightly down in gold with only one shiny diamond pendant.
The necklace was very simple, but one look and she can tell that it is a very expensive necklace.
Her fingers gently trace over the necklace as her smile softens. She gently set the jewelry box down and reach for the second biggest box. She undid the silky ribbon and removes the lid.
Inside was a pair of strapped heels in the shade of sand. Again, it was very simple, but she couldn't help but sigh a smile. This pair of heels was part of the first collection she ever designed.
She takes the heels out and admire each pair like a mother who is finally reunited with her long-lost child. It's been such a very long time since she's seen anything from her first collection.
Now she can't help but be curious as to who this mysterious sender is. Putting the heels back inside the box, she place it on the table and looks at the biggest box.
Slowly undoing the ribbon like how she did the other two, she removes the lid.
Layers of gold tissue paper flutter out as it hides away the gift inside. However, under three layers, she sees a black envelope.
Picking it up, she opens the envelope and reads the card inside.
My dearest love,
I hope you shine as brightly as the stars tonight.
Reading the short message on the card, Yue Ling smiles a chuckle. She sets the card down and moves the gold tissue papers to unravel the last gift.
Into her process of admiring the last gift, the sound of her phone rings inside her office. She set the gift down and reach for her phone inside her pocket.
Seeing the name of the caller, she was taken by surprise. How can the timing be so right? Brushing the thought away, she did not hesitate to answer the call.
["Do you like the gifts?"]
Hearing the man's deep voice, Yue Ling glance down at the three boxes opened on the table. She leans back on the couch and part her lips to answer.
"I'm quite in shock. I never thought you would have such good taste."
["You don't like them? I can have another set sent to you."]
"No, no. I love the gifts. Thank you."
Yue Ling quickly protested. She knows that if she had said no, he really would send her another gift. It's not that didn't appreciate his gifts, she only did not want him to spend money on her.
Remembering something, she stood up from the couch and walks over to the floor to ceiling window in her office.
"Tian, can I ask you to do something for me?"
["I am at your command."]
Hearing his shameless words, Yue Ling did not know whether to laugh or cry. She stares out the huge window and decided to smile widely with her straight white teeth.
"Since you agree, can I ask you to…"
As she tells him her favor, on the roof top of a tall structure a few buildings away from De L'amour, the dark tip of a sniper come to view.
Through the scope, the image is locked on Yue Ling as she stood in front of the floor to ceiling window. A hand reach out and adjusts the scope to zoom in on her face.
Behind the sniper, a tall man clothe in black is positioned like he is going to shoot his target. However, a faint smile curls on his handsome face as he stares into the sniper scope. His dark wool coat slowly flutters with the breeze that passes by.
After a long minute passes, he reluctantly pulls away and lift his hand to the earpiece to end the call he was in.
He steps away from the sniper and turn to look at the empty roof. Setting the weapon down, he straightens his coat and the smile he had is replace with seriousness.
"Wolf Team, formation!"
Quickly as he spoke, the sound of shuffle and footsteps echoes into the air. Ten members of Wolf Team clothe in black tactical gears steps out from hiding and lines up in front of him.
"At your orders, Captain!"
Lu Tian, who was keeping watch on his wife stares at his men. There were only ten of them, but these are the ten men he ordered to keep watch for any suspicious movements around his wife. He cannot be certain when Chu Li Xiang plans to attack.
"Keep a clear watch. She is my wife and your lady boss. Seeing her is like seeing me. Make sure you all protect her. Report anything or anyone suspicious."
The members of Wolf Team quickly answers in understanding with determination written on their faces. There is no possible way they will let harm come to their lady boss.
Setting his orders, Lu Tian walks away from his post. He had come here to personally keep an eye on his wife and child, also because he misses her. However, now he needs to leave.
As the ten men were returning to their positions, a member sees Lu Tian leaving. He couldn't help but ask.
"Captain, are you leaving?"
Lu Tian looks at the man and ponder in thought. After thoroughly thinking, he nonchalantly tells the truth.
"I need to compete the task my wife has required."
The ten members of Wolf Team were in utter disbelief. Ten Jaws dropped to ground and no one dare to move as their eyes glued onto their aloof boss.
Lu Tian turned ignorance towards his men and walks away from the scene. As of now, his number one priority is to do what his wife had specifically asked.
