Yun Shishi nodded.
“What’s your name? Let me buy you a drink when you’re free to show my gratitude for your help this time.”
The man agreed to it at once. “Okay!”
How could he turn down a date with this beauty?
Moreover, she was such a pretty woman.
He thought he might get lucky like his chief and end his days of being single!
Hence, he introduced himself. “My name is Lu Jinyu. You can call me Jinyu.”
“Hello, Mr. Lu! Thank you so much for today!”
“What about you?”
His gaze landed on her face. “What’s your name?”
“Yun Shishi!” she replied courteously.
His smile faltered slightly at that.
The smile on her face faltered slightly as well. “Yun… Shishi.”
He could not help but be surprised.
What a familiar name.
Chief’s wife seems to have that name, too!
Surely… it wouldn’t be so coincidental, would it?!
He hesitated for a bit before eventually deciding to seek verification. “Do you know a man called… Mu Yazhe?”
His question stumped her. “…Yes, I know him.”
Lu Jinyu: “…”
After holding back his words for a long time, he finally spouted, “Sister-in-law!”
His abrupt call of ‘sister—law’ startled her. The baffled woman looked at him with quizzical eyes. “You… What did you just call me?!”
“Sister-in-law!” He let out a helpless laugh. It looked like his dream of dropping his single status would not come anytime soon, huh!
After all those events, it turned out that she was his sister-in-law!
The world was a very small place, indeed!
Still confused about the situation, she asked curiously, “Have we met before?”
“Ha ha ha! Sister-in-law, why are you so cute?”
He thought to himself, From the first time I laid eyes on her, my impression is that she’s a somewhat simple-minded and silly lady while she stood like a punching bag in that crowd with her flushed and distraught face.
Nonetheless, it did not occur to him that she would turn out to be his sister-in-law.
“Let’s go! I’ll buy you a drink, sister-in-law.”
He put his arm around her shoulders as he said that. In the face of such intimacy with someone of the opposite gender, she felt somewhat disgusted and pulled out of his hug. “Did you get the wrong person? I’m not your sister-in-law.”
“Mu Yazhe is my older brother. According to seniority, I should call you ‘sister-in-law,’” he answered matter-of-factly.
“He’s your older brother?”
“What a coincidence…” She got a little dazed. “It’s such… a coincidence.”
“Ha ha! I’m pretty surprised here, too. I didn’t expect to meet you here.”
“Thank you, but let’s forget about the drink. I still have to report to the police station!”
“There’s no need for that! It’s merely a procedure, after all. I’ll get them to file the case straight away!”
Without giving her a chance to refuse him, he invited her to the car.
Along the way, the woman only found the situation to be very surreal. She somehow got the feeling that, just like a little, white rabbit, she had been effortlessly abducted by a big bad wolf!
Even after they reached a café, she remained skeptical of his words. It was only after he fished out from his briefcase an ‘engagement ceremony’ invitation card with her handwriting that she finally believed him.
They had just ordered their coffee, but the man had lost all of his earlier aloofness and elegance. Instead, undisguised excitement was written all over his face as he stared at her over and over again.
She was his legendary sister-in-law, huh!
She was very different from what he had imagined her to be.
He thought that his sister-in-law was a domineering woman, but as it turned out, she was clearly just a little white rabbit!
