First time in Paris (Rami Malek x Reader)

Warnings: Slight sexual content

Summary:  Rami and Reader are invited to the Dior Homme show in Paris. After dinner they go back to their hotel where they share their first time of love.

A/N: Listen to “Touch” or “Your Love” by Little Mix while you’re reading this! That’s what I did during my writing process. Enjoy!


Soft breaths on your neck woke you up early in the morning in Paris. You slowly opened your eyes and were greeted with bright sunrays that shone through the curtains of your hotel suite and illuminated the whole room with light. You wanted to sit up however two strong arms held you back from your intention. A smile crept its way on your lips as you turned your head towards the man who lied under the white sheets right next to you. Turning your body completely to his direction, you placed one hand on Rami’s cheek and caressed it gently.

He still slept peacefully with his lips slightly open. A wave of happiness rushed through your body as you remembered the actions from last night. Even though you felt a slight discomfort in your lower area now, it was still worth your decision. Not only did he experience you in your most vulnerable state but you also him. Last night, you have been so close to each other like you’ve never been before. Your bodies were connected for the first time and it was a very special moment that you two shared.

‘I had my first time in Paris’ You thought smiling. The city of love.

*

The reason why you were in France was because Rami had been invited to the Dior Homme show in Paris. He was the new face of Dior Homme S/S 2017 campaign. The show took place at Grande Palais and it was a big honor for you attending the show with him. Rami introduced to several famous celebrities who were also there.

The whole event was very successful and you had lots of fun watching at those new designs and new clothes. After the show, you went to the party that was hosted by Dior including dinner and stuff. You wore a knee-high tight red dress that outlined your curves perfectly with black high heels.

“You’re gonna catch every man’s attention like this.” Rami mumbled into your ear with a low voice. You shrugged your shoulders and told him that you wouldn’t care a bit about them.

“You’re gonna catch all those women’s attention by the way you look.” You told him laughing. He looked absolutely handsome in his black suit. He always looked good in suits. Suits fit to him perfectly.

The dinner was awesome and the party was legendary. You and Rami were not separated from each other for a second. Rami made sure that others had not the intention to hit on you and kept you very close to him. That cute and protective boyfriend of yours. You danced, laughed and talked with other people and even made new friendships. You had a good time and would be sad about that day coming to an end.

Rami took your hand after a while. “C’mon, let’s head back to the hotel.” He knew you were becoming kind of tired and he also wanted to spend some alone time with you.

You made your way to the limo and Rami told the driver to drop you off at the hotel, giving him the address.  “How are you feeling?” Rami asked you, letting you rest your head on his shoulder.

“I’m fine.” You said truthfully. “I had so much fun. Can you take me to more events in the future?”

Rami chuckled and gave you a peck on your forehead. “Everything for my girl.”

When you arrived at the hotel, Rami asked you to go ahead and that he would come after he had to deal with some things. You were wondering what he had to do but listened to him. He gave you the key card for the suite and you left.

The first thing you did after unlocking the door and entering the big room was to take off your heels. You took place on the giant couch, massaging your aching feet and making yourself comfortable.

A knock on the door disturbed your relaxation and you stood up to open it. You were greeted by Rami with a bunch of roses and a big bottle of champagne in his hands. A cheeky smile appeared on his lips and he gave you the roses, the entered the suite.

With slight rosy cheeks, you turned over to him. “What’s that for, Rami?” You laughed. Meanwhile, Rami opened the bottle and poured some champagne into two glasses.

 “Why? Can’t I just buy roses for my beautiful girlfriend and drink some champagne with her?” He took off his jacket and you placed the bouquet onto the living room table.

“I was just wondering.” You answered. Rami took the two glasses and came over to you. He gave you a kiss on your lips before he handed you over one glass.

“I had a wonderful day, baby. Thanks for joining me.”

“Thanks for inviting me. “You said, then clinking glasses.  

You didn’t know clearly what happened after but suddenly you found yourself on the huge bed with Rami’s hands all over your body. He kissed your neck roughly while his hands traced down your belly to your legs.

“Are you sure you want to do this?” He asked softly. It was the first time for both of you and he wanted it to be perfect. He didn’t want to push you into something you would regret after. He would wait no matter how long it would take. But you nodded your head in agreement, totally lost for words because pleasure took control over your entire body. You craved for his love, for his closeness. You wanted to feel him completely. You were ready for this, for him and trusted him enough to let it happen.

“Please, Rami,” You sighed. “Make love to me.”

Your heartbeat increased as he began to take off your clothes and you felt like it was going to burst in your chest. You felt so many mixed emotions in that moment. Happiness, love, excitement, nervousness. Everything at once.  

Rami took off his clothes as well but kept his boxers on. He didn’t want to scare you off and wanted to make sure that you decision was clear. He asked you again and your answer would be the same. Then, you two were completely exposed to each other and explored your bodies by caressing and touching.

“I love you.” Rami mumbled against your lips, as he slowly and carefully slid into you and began to make sweet and passionate love to you. Your body fit perfectly as if they were made for each other like puzzles. Hands intertwined and sweet sounds of pleasure escaping your lips, you let him take your virginity. Rami always asked if you were okay and if he hurt you but you shook your head, assuring him that you were fine.

When you reached your highs, you ended up cuddling together and you felt your eyes becoming heavier. Sleep washed over you and you closed your eyes, drifting to a peaceful slumber.

*

“Hey.” A raspy morning voice interrupted your thoughts.

“Good morning.” You replied, giving him a kiss on his lips. He pressed himself closer to your body.

“How are you feeling?”  He asked.

“I’m good.” You laughed. “Very very good.” Rami offered you a laugh.

“I’m glad to hear that.” You two lied a little more in your bed, talking about last night and how you enjoyed your first time. You didn’t feel embarrassed at all talking about it. Rami asked you what you wanted to do, because you had the whole day to explore Paris until you would catch the plane the next day.

“What about visiting the Eiffel Tower?” You suggested.

“I’m absolutely fine with that.”

Gamer Boy Ch. 6

This is part of my submission for nalu week 2017. It is rated T for cussing and slightly suggestive themes later on. I do not own Fairy Tail, Hiro Mashima does.

Summary: The annual ‘Call of Duty’ competition is back again. Lucy is determined to reclaim the title as Fiore’s best team, but first she has to beat last year’s winners, ‘The Dragons’. She won’t let anything stand in her way, especially not the annoying team captain of the opponent’s team. No distractions, no slip ups, and certainly no secret make out sessions with her rival. Modern AU. Romance/Humor

Read Chapter: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. (Completed)

Read on FF.net or AO3.


Chapter Six: Intertwined (Day Seven)

The first thought that ran through Lucy’s mind when she woke up the next morning was, ‘That was just a dream, right?’ It wasn’t until she checked her bag and found her torn shirt that she realized it did in fact happen.

She had made out with Natsu.

Multiple times.

A soft blush stayed permanently on her face as she got ready that morning, keeping quiet so as not to arouse any suspicion. Despite her friends not saying anything, she felt like they knew. Her paranoia only grew tenfold by the time they made it down to the lobby. To Lucy, it felt like everyone was staring at her… Like they knew her little secret.

She gulped as they walked up to the members of 'The Dragons’, giving a small wave before following the boys and her teammates to the room where the competition would take place. She felt Natsu’s eyes on her as they walked, but she was too scared to meet his gaze. So, she settled for chewing on her inner cheek while she avoided him.

When everyone went to take their seats, Lucy found herself sitting between Erza and Natsu. Her hands shook in her lap, so she kept them clenched in fists so they wouldn’t be as noticeable. She was thankful when the lights started to dim and the announcer began talking, assuring her that no one would pay attention to her.

At least, that was what she thought.

Halfway into the first match, she felt something brush against her thigh. She immediately looked down, squinting her eyes to try to see in the dark. It took her a few seconds, but she eventually saw the side of Natsu’s hand resting two inches from her thigh at the edge of his seat.

When she looked up at him, she saw he was still facing the front, eyes trained on the screens as if it had his entire focus. Taking a deep breath, Lucy let her hand relax, then shifted it next to her thigh so it touched Natsu’s. He waited a second before he slowly grasped her hand, pressing their palms together.

Lucy let her tongue drag over her top teeth as she tried to decide what to do. She could try to go back to her old ways and push Natsu away, or she could embrace this new friendship -could she really call it just a friendship after last night?- and lean into it.

With her heart pounding a mile a minute and her palm already sweating, Lucy tangled her fingers against his until they were intertwined, the heat from his hand traveling up her arm and over her chest. She had no idea how he was able to make her feel so hot with his simple touches.

Truthfully, she didn’t think she wanted to know. For now, she would just call it magic.

summary: Jason has just very recently come to terms with the fact that he is so, so very not straight, and he’s kind of in love with this guy, but he doesn’t know how to tell him.  At least not without screwing something up.


“Hey Leo,” Jason started, trying to stifle a yawn as he turned a page in his textbook.  “Did you get to number twelve yet?”

Behind him, Leo groaned from his spot on the bed.  Jason didn’t even bother to turn around as he heard his friend shift on the mattress, and the sound of papers sliding off of the bed and down to the floor.

“Nah,” Leo croaked behind him, and from his long pause and jumbled speech, Jason could tell that he had fallen asleep.  “Not yet.”  Jason spun around just in time to see him rub his eyes, his curly hair sticking up all over the place and slightly matted to one side.  “Wha’ time is it?”

“Um.” Jason glanced down at his watch.  “About two.”

Leo scrubbed at his eyes vigorously, his knuckles pale.  “Ugh - okay.  Lemme…lemme get back to work.”

  • Anton Shudder: *to Saracen Rue* You've been spoiled, too much soft living. You used to be tough.
  • Saracen Rue: I did? When?
  • Anton Shudder: *to Valkyrie Cain* He jokes. They all do. But Saracen is one of the strongest men I have ever had the honour of knowing. We were in Siberia...
  • Saracen Rue: *squirming* Not this story again.
  • Anton Shudder: Shut up. We were in Siberia. Our mission was to assassinate a man so terrible his own soldiers called him the Butcher. We tried, and we failed. We were forced to run, and got separated. When we regrouped, Saracen was missing. We waited at the rendezvous point. Nothing. The Teleporter came to take us home - we didn't go. Our friend had been captured by the Butcher. We had to go back for him.
  • Saracen Rue: Can we just stop the story there? Leave it on a cliffhanger?
  • Anton Shudder: Nonsense. Valkyrie should know the calibre of the people she now serves with. The Butcher had him for three days, Valkyrie. No one endured the Butcher's interrogations for more than twenty-four hours. But, not only did Saracen endure, he found a way to escape. When we found him, he had tracked the Butcher back to his home, had subdued his wife and was waiting there for the Butcher to return. We found him, convinced him to leave with us that very night. He was almost reluctant, Valkyrie. He didn't care that the Butcher now had a dozen of his best soldiers around him at all times - he wanted to stay and see the job through to the end. That is the kind of man Saracen Rue is.
  • Dexter Vex: *to Saracen Rue* Don't you think you should tell him?
  • Anton Shudder: Tell me what?
  • Saracen Rue: Anton... the things is, you love that story. You do. Every time you tell it, you.. you just get all proud. And that's a lovely thing to see. But the story isn't the whole, entire, actual truth of what actually, truthfully, entirely... happened.
  • Anton Shudder: I don't understand.
  • Saracen Rue: The Butcher didn't capture me. I never ran when the alarm was raised. I'd twisted my ankle, remember? So, while you guys took off, I hid. And, purely by coincidence, I hid in the Butcher's own cellar.
  • Anton Shudder: But... but you subdued his wife...
  • Erskine Ravel: Subdue is one word for it, seduce is another.
  • Anton Shudder: What?
  • Saracen Rue: She was really pretty! And she wasn't happy married to him. How could she be? He was ninety per cent hair.
  • Anton Shudder: You spent three days with his wife?
  • Saracen Rue: While he was out hunting you guys, yeah. It was the safest place to be while my ankle healed. The last place he'd think to look.
  • Anton Shudder: And you all knew about this?
  • Ghastly Bespoke: We didn't want to spoil the story you'd concocted. It was really good.

seungkwan x reader with 16 & 18? :D x

16.  “ I kind of don’t dislike you”

18.  “See, you look a lot better with a smile”


Seungkwan was headed to a nearby grocery store when he saw a familiar face sitting alone on a park bench. He recognized you, and he didn’t intend on going to greet you but thought otherwise when he noticed how unusually glum you looked.

He went over to the bench, forgetting about the errand he was supposed to do. The closer he got, the clearer he saw your expression filled with sadness. 

Once he was close enough, he cleared his throat. You looked up, expression changing to a look of expectation, but it immediately formed into a scowl. “Oh, Seungkwan. What do you want?”

Of course, Seungkwan understood her tone of voice. You two didn’t exactly see eye to eye, even you’ve been friends with the boys for a few years now. 

He didn’t answer, instead he sat down next to you. He inhaled deeply, faced you and asked you with the most caring and non-hateful voice he could muster, “What’s wrong?”

You were shocked. Usually, Seungkwan only talked to you when you were shouting or sassing each other. Harsh, you know. 

Sighing, you gave him an answer. “I was supposed to go on a date, but he stood me up,” you answered him truthfully, though still weirded out by his actions. “Okay, this is weird. Why are you not shouting at me? Or sassing me? Are you really Seungkwan?” you asked, going to reach for his forehead to see if he was sick but you quickly swatted your hand away. 

“Look Y/N. Truth is, I kind of don’t dislike you,” he was the one who answered truthfully now, his face as red as the cap he was wearing. He cleared his throat again. Standing up, he held his hand out to you. “Come on, you’re gonna help me buy groceries and lunch.”

You were still very much weirded out at him and his sudden (sort-of) confession but gladly took his hand. 

You brushed off any leaves from your hair, as the cherry blossoms were falling while you two walked. You were about to ask him a question, when you saw Seungkwan shaking leaves from his head and sneezing as a leaf drop on his nose. You laughed at how cute he was, and his expression visibly lit up. 

“You look a lot better with a smile,” he stated. You smiled at him, nudging his shoulder with your own. 


is this even a drabble???? and how many times did I use weird?? hope you like it! xxBrie

“I could’ve done things differently and been more of a friend and helped certain situations along, but truthfully I didn’t even know who I was until I got sober. Izzy [Stradlin] had already left the band, and when I got sober I had to kind of prove it to him. He was like, ‘Are you really sober, man?’ But he was a good friend to me through that time. Axl remained a good friend until I left the band, and then we became estranged for a while. And Slash was still really in it. We were still totally friends, but I just wasn’t in that world. It took about seven years for us to reconnect properly. I wasn’t staying away from him because I hated him, I just couldn’t risk being around him because he was my running partner for a long time, and I didn’t trust myself around him.” - Duff McKagan

《你丫上瘾了》

Chapter 151: The DISCOVERY of a SUSPICIOUS ITEM

“Mr. Gu and I came to know each other four years ago. It was one of the hardest time in my life. During those days, I ran to every part of the country. I didn’t know where I was going or what I wanted to do. Later on, I finally ended up in Xiamen*1, working as a front desk receptionist at a five-star hotel. At that time, Mr. Gu was on a business trip in Xiamen and it was by luck that he checked into the hotel that I worked at. The first time I saw Mr. Gu, I was overwhelmed by that grand and impressive manner of his. I felt that the man in my life should be like that, powerful, intimidating, aloof and not in touch with reality……”

As Jiang Yuan continuously spoke, her eyes were overflowed with rays of brilliant lights and vibrant colors. It was as if she had returned to that period of time in her life where craziness roamed.

“Afterwards, I racked my brain to think of ways to become friends with Mr. Gu, however, he always kept at a distant far away from me. Then, I heard that he already had a wife but even then I couldn’t just give up. I’d even put my life in danger by trespassing into the military base. But, I was nearly assaulted by a group of dull-witted soldiers. The rumors began to spread at that time. It was then that Mr. Gu’s wife came to look for me. She spoke to me for a while. She was an extremely educated and cultured woman who didn’t curse or mock me. In a very calm and gentle manner, she told me the difficulties of marrying a military man. Truthfully, I really admired her, but even more I envied her; envied that kind of graceful and noble air that she possessed.

I stopped for a period of time, ready to give up. But before long, Mr. Gu unexpectedly took the initiative to contact me first and told me that his wife had passed away. I thought that it was a kind of opportunity for myself. When Mr. Gu was in his lowest spirit, depressed, I continuously thought of every possible way to comfort him. And that was how we came to stay in contact for two years. It was only last year that I finally received Mr. Gu’s acknowledgment.”

Bai Luo Yin’s sharp eyes swept over Jiang Yuan’s face that was brimming with happiness.

“In other words, before Mrs. Gu passed away, Gu Wei Ting didn’t express any good feelings toward you?”

Jiang Yuan let out a heavy sigh, “At that time, I think he did have some good feelings toward me. Yet, now that these memories are swimming back into my head again, I think I was quite ridiculous.”

“Why?”

“The things that you can’t obtain or have lost will always be the best. Even until now, I’ve always felt that the person Mr. Gu loves all along is his wife. I was just a pastime amusement for him when he was lonely. Do you know? Every time Mr. Gu returns home, the first thing that he looks at are always the items in that room, not me. Whenever he mentions his wife to other people, the feelings that emits from his eyes are deep, profound and strong. But when he mentions me in front of other people, the expression in his eyes are shallow, frivolous. Perhaps, this is the difference between like and love. ‘Like’ is passion, love is painful.”

In reality, Bai Luo Yin was not concerned even a bit whether or not Gu Wei Ting loves Jiang Yuan. What he was concerned about was exactly how deep Gu Wei Ting’s feelings for his wife were. Why have Gu Hai never noticed those kinds of deep and heartfelt feelings?*2

Was it because of Gu Hai’s negligent or was Jiang Yuan’s perception misplaced?

“Are you doubting that what I’ve said are lies?”

With just one look, Jiang Yuan could see through Bai Luo Yin’s thoughts.

Bai Luo Yin remained silent.

“Do you really think there is a need for me to lie? That I’m deliberately making myself look pitiful so that I can win over your sympathy? Or that I’m deliberately making myself out to be innocence as to distant myself from Mr. Gu late wife’s death?”

Even with Jiang Yuan being frankness blatant, still Bai Luo Yin did not lessen the sternness in his tone of voice. “In regards to Gu Hai’s mother’s death, how much do you know?”

Jiang Yuan bluntly said to Bai Luo Yin, “I don’t know anything nor do I ever wanted to look into it. If I say, that I slowly got close to Mr. Gu after his wife’s death, would you believe it?”

Bai Luo Yin wanted to look for a loophole in Jiang Yuan’s words, but he ended up empty-handed.

Paleness crawled onto Jian Yuan’s youthful face, “Luo Yin, I may be greedy, but I’m not despicable. Not to mention at that time, I don’t have the means to act that way. Even more, I don’t even have access into the military compound. Do you really think I have the ability to go in there and injury a heavily guarded military man’s wife? If we were to disregard her status as a General’s wife and, instead base it solely on her family’s background, even if there were ten of me, I still wouldn’t be able to compete against her.”

Bai Luo Yin nonchalantly stood up, faced the stairs and walked up.

This was the first time Bai Luo Yin saw a panoramic view of Mrs. Gu’s room. Last time, when Gu Hai had opened the door to go in, he only caught a quick glimpse of one corner of the room. It was not exactly the same as what he had imaged a dead person’s room would look like. There was no large photo, flowers arrangements, or any prayer altar. None of that kind of atmosphere was presence in the least. It seemed just like any ordinary person’s room. Even the skincare and cosmetic products were still neatly placed on the dressing table. The only thing was, the caps on those products were all open. Bai Luo Yin picked up one of them for a look, it was dated three years ago.

Who knew how many times Gu Hai entered this room during the last three years and how many times did he, like Bai Luo Yin now, pick up these things to carefully look at it.

All the arrangements and ornaments in this room was simple yet elegant; holding an unspoken grandeur to it. A faint fragrance floated around. Without even needing to look at Mrs. Gu’s photograph, Bai Luo Yin could already imagine what kind of woman she was as she sat down in front of the dressing table. She undoubtedly exuded ladylike temperament, that is, in terms of being cultured and brimming with courtesy.

Above the bookcase, there was a photo frame. The picture in the frame was the same one that Bai Luo Yin had seen in Gu Hai’s photo album; Mrs. Gu carrying a young Gu Hai with happiness painted gently on their faces.

When Bai Luo Yin placed the frame back to where it belonged, something suddenly fell down and landed to the side of his foot.

He picked it up for a look. It was a necklace. It was very thin and delicate with a dazzling diamond inlaid securely in the middle of it.

Discovering a jewelry in Mr. Gu’s room was not something new to marvel at. A woman like her, even if there were a case of jewelry, it would not be strange. But, because this necklace was placed in an obscure spot, almost unnoticeable, that it actually attracted Bai Luo Yin’s attention.

Also, it did not seem to adhere to Mrs. Gu’s taste, Bai Luo Yin carefully took the time to examine her other jewelries for a moment. Fundamentally, the workmanships of the other jewelries were exquisite yet it was simple and elegant in style. But, this necklace was too opulent, especially the red diamond in the middle. The diamond itself looked rare amongst the other precious jewels. One carat was probably worth more than a million dollars.

How could Mrs. Gu have this kind of necklace?

Furthermore, it was not placed in a brocade case, or stored up carefully. It just laid in an obscure corner of the bookcase where nobody had taken notice.

Bai Luo Yin took this necklace and walked out of the room. By chance, Jiang Yuan was standing outside of the room with a rag in her hand.

“Do you still need to go in? If not, I’m going in to clean up.”

Bai Luo Yin shook his head and look into the room from the doorway. He saw that Jiang Yuan was carefully wiping every nook and corner of the dressing table.

“Is this your necklace?” Bai Luo Yin suddenly asked.

Jiang Yuan took a glance at it and said, “It’s not mine, it’s hers.”

Bai Lu Yin wanted to leave with the necklace, but Jiang Yuan quickly caught up him.

“You’re taking her belonging away with you? Did you talk about it with Gu Hai already? Every time he comes back, he always looks through and checks his mother’s remnant. Don’t even mention something going missing, if it was placed in a different position, he will lose his temper.”

“Don’t worry, I’ll return it soon.”

As Bai Luo Yin walked out from the villa, he suddenly realized:

Since Jiang Yuan placed everything back, undamaged, to its original position after cleaning Mrs. Gu’s room. Then, this was proof that the necklace had always been placed there from the beginning?

It was somewhat hard to understand why Mrs. Gu would just casually place such a precious item on the bookcase like that. Base on her nature, even if she was not fond of this particular jewelry, wouldn’t she at least store it properly?

—–

That night they had dinner at Bai Luo Yin’s house.

On the way back to their apartment, Bai Luo Yin took the necklace out of his pocket and swung it right in front of Gu Hai’s face.

At that moment, they happened to walk by a huge shopping mall. The doorway to go inside was so bright, it was as if the sun had risen again; and the brilliant lighting that shone above made the diamond even more dazzling.

Gu Hai suddenly stood in place, his pupils became stagnate for a short period of time before he took the necklace, placed it in his own hand and carefully looked over it.

Bai Luo Yin carefully observed Gu Hai’s reaction.

Even he himself was somewhat nervous…tensed.

A moment later, Gu Hai was suddenly quite cheerful, “Is this for me?”

There was a sudden paused in Bai Luo Yin’s expression. He could feel the numbness crawling under his scalp.

All of a sudden, Gu Hai pinched Bai Luo Yin’s cheeks, ridiculing him: “Is this my reward for making you feel good everyday?”

Gu Hai doesn’t recognize this necklace! He actually doesn’t recognize it?! Didn’t he memorize all of Mrs. Gu’s remnant by heart?

With eyes full of disbelief, Bai Luo Yin continued to meticulously look at Gu Hai’s appearance. While his facial features displayed a relaxed and cheerful air, Bai Luo Yin’s chilled chest, on the other hand, was just about to burst open.

“It’s not for you. I just picked it up along the road a moment ago,” said Bai Luo Yin, taking the necklace back.

“Where would you find something this good huh? Go and pick up another one for me.” Gu Hai started to make fun of him, “Just admit it. You want to give me a gift yet you’re still embarrassed.”

Bai Luo Yin tightly clutched the necklace, refusing to give it up. He then quickened his pace. As they departed the glaring light within the shopping mall vicinity and gloomily stepped into the darkness, he was afraid that Gu Hai might have seen the quality of necklace.

—–

The next day, Bai Luo took a trip to the military base.

“Who are you looking for?” asked the soldier on guard with his cold and stern looking face.

“I’m looking for Gu Wei Ting.”

The soldier’s expression was suddenly painted with astonishment “You’re looking for General Gu? You……who are you?”

For the purpose of making sure he would be allowed in, Bai Luo Yin had no other choice but to force himself and said: “I’m his son.”

“His son?” sneered the soldier, “You think I don’t know what his son looks like? You have guts, pretending to be General Gu’s son huh?”

Bai Luo Yin’s expression was extremely calm, “If I say I am, then I am.”

“Hey man! I said, you really have guts, trying to pass yourself off as a member of the General’s family. Even more, you’re being rude and unreasonable, you don’t want to live anymore huh?” While he said this, he lowered the gun’s muzzle toward the pit of Bai Luo Yin’s stomach; his face full of determination.

Inside the guarding room was another soldier who was sitting down. At that moment, he was boringly having a meal, but when he heard the commotion outside, he lifted his head and took a glance. He stopped chewing and quickly stuck his head of the window.

“Hey, Xiao Dongzi, release him and let him in.”

The soldier called Xiao Dongzi put his gun down, looked toward the soldier who had just called for him from the window and asked: “Who is he huh?”

“The General’s son!”

“Isn’t the General’s son Gu Hai?”

He coughed, “Ahem……He’s the General’s second son.”

That solider intentionally emphasized the word ‘second’ and looked at Xiao Dongzi, giving him an indiscreet wink.

Xiao Dongzi smiled, quickly understanding the gesture without being explicitly told. He withdrew to the side then made a very inviting posture as to allow Bai Luo Yin in.

Bai Luo Yin deliberately avoided the smirk and ridiculing smile on that soldier’s face. Since he had planned to come alone, he had already prepared himself for the disdainful looks.

After going through numerous difficulties and obstructions, Bai Luo Yin finally saw Gu Wei Ting.

By that time, the sky was already dressed in darkness. Gu Wei Ting wanted to go together with Bai Luo Yin for dinner, but Bai Luo Yin rejected his offer. He took the necklace out of his pocket and placed it in front of Gu Wei Ting.

Gu Wei Ting looked at the necklace, somewhat unclear, “What is the meaning of this?”

Bai Luo Yin replied with a question instead, “It doesn’t look familiar to you?”

Since it is Mrs. Gu’s jewelry, she must have worn it before or at least taken it out. Even if these two reasoning does not exist. After she passed away, her family could have tidied her remnants on her behalf, so they should have seen this necklace. It is impossible that they don’t have any impression of it at all.

However, Gu Wei Ting’s reaction once again shocked Bai Luo Yin.

“I’ve never see this before.”

Gu Wei Ting answered Bai Lu Yin in a very definite and clear-cut manner.

The name Xiamen means “door to the house”, referring to the city’s centuries-old role as a gateway to China. Xiamen is a very vibrant, affluent and modern place, though by Chinese standards it is a small city — only 1.9 million in the city itself and 3.6 million counting suburbs.
