Xiao Yaojing reached out to caress PA Wen’s face and gave him a peck on the cheek. “I just realized that I was merely obsessed with Lu Qichuan. I wasn’t in love with him—I just couldn’t accept that he wasn’t into me. I think you’re much cuter anyway.”
Xiao Yaojing kissed PA Wen again, except this time it was on the lips.
He was being teased openly.
However, after being teased so often, PA Wen could definitely handle a kiss.
Hearing that from Xiao Yaojing, PA Wen’s mood turned for the better. When he was done eating, he looked at the beach and thought of CEO’s words. They had to continue with the resort’s opening.
The scenery in this place was out of this world. If they could open a resort here, the money spent to buy the island could be earned back quickly.
Gu Juexi was less apprehensive entering the forest with Yu Jiangqing as compared to Ye Yuwei.
Although there were dangers lurking in the forest as they were attacked by poisonous bats, the both of them managed to escape unscathed. Yu Jiangqing even managed to capture one to extract its venom.
“For Ding Ning?” Gu Juexi looked at the man who threw away the dead bat on the ground before putting the sample bottle away.
Yu Jiangqing merely glanced at Gu Juexi with narrowed eyes before lowering his head to look at the watch on his wrist. They had been here for about three hours. Bigger problems seemed to await them.
Gu Juexi looked at the sky and determined their current location from the shadows of the trees. “You really want to follow in my footsteps?”
Yu Jiangqing remained nonchalant.
That was probably how things would be like between him and Ding Ning for the rest of their lives. It would be impossible to expect them to be in perfect harmony like Gu Juexi and Ye Yuwei.
“I heard Lu mention that you’re going to look for Princess Pink?” Yu Jiangqing sat down next to a tree, wanting to rest for a while before entering the poisonous gas forest.
“Yeah, there was something wrong with the diamond used to make the ring. She had a piece of it with her,” Gu Juexi said frankly.
Yu Jiangqing felt odd. “Didn’t you personally go to Dubai to retrieve the diamond on your own? What’s wrong with it?”
“Blood diamond.” Gu Juexi retracted his gaze and determined his position before turning to look at Yu Jiangqing again.
“You’ve heard of it?”
“Previously when I was with the Bai family, I heard the diamond’s legend. It was said that someone had custom-made a pair for his fiancée but the fiancée passed away and the pair of rings disappeared,” Yu Jiangqing shared speculatively. “It was regarded as the most ominous diamond.”
The legend was the same as the one Gu Juexi had previously heard.
“But why would Princess Pink willingly part with her cherished treasure?” Yu Jiangqing snickered at Gu Juexi with a hunch that this would be an interesting show.
“She was in need of money and I was in need of a diamond. That was basically it.” Gu Juexi wasn’t going to entertain Yu Jiangqing’s thoughts. “Let’s go. It will be dark in a few hours, and it would not be wise to be trapped inside the poisonous gas forest at night.”
“For Ye Yuwei, you’re willing to part with anything,” Yu Jiangqing murmured and got up to continue the journey with Gu Juexi.
There was a great difference in temperature between day and night on the island, so it was fortunate that they were in the helicopter and could avoid the cold.
Lu Qichuan had driven his private helicopter. There were two rooms in it, with a living area equipped with a refrigerator and other necessities.
Ye Yuwei knew Lu Qichuan was from a well-to-do family, but she didn’t know it was to this extent.
