Chapter 45 — This Male Lead Is a Bit Crazy (45)
His gaze lingered on the dull-looking girl for a few seconds. Huo Junhan frowned slightly and lifted her collar saying, “Go take a bath.”
Shen Mubai’s first instinct was to obey, so she got out of bed and made her way to the bathroom. She looked inside the bag out and rejoiced. The man had brought her sanitary napkins! What a luxurious brand, too. 1
The power and water supply had long been turned off; there was a time limit, after all. But there were still two buckets of hot water in the bathroom.
After the hot bath, Shen Mubai, feeling warm and comfortable, plopped down on the bed. She turned and stared at that beautiful face. His ice-blue eyes were closed, and a shadow was cast over his face.
Shen Mubai thought about it and said, “Thank you.”
She wasn’t expecting a response, so she immediately turned around and fell asleep.
Despite having a hot bath and a warm quilt, her stomach still felt uncomfortable. Shen Mubai was in pain and muttered a few words.
“…Damn aunt.” Her soft whispering echoed in the ears of the man lying next to her.
As the beads of light on the table faded, in the darkness of the night, the outline of the man’s face could be seen, illuminated by the faint light outside. He opened his eyes, his gaze focused on the restless girl next to him.
Raising a hand, he lifted the quilt and placed his hand on her soft and tender belly. The warmth of his hands made the girl’s frown smoothen. Soon, the sound of slow and peaceful breathing could be heard. 2
He had shifted into an uncomfortable position, but his eyes stayed glued to the girl’s small face, the emotions in his eyes unclear.
Huo Junhan attracted a lot of attention from several powerful forces in the base. These days, there would be several people coming to their door, but every time they would return empty handed.
Several authorities wanted to bring this goldmine to their side, but none of them succeeded. They proposed special offers many would be envious of, but this man had no interest; he even looked a little annoyed.
When those emotionless ice-blue eyes looked at these solicitors, they would inexplicably feel a cold sweat form.
The status of these forces differed. Although they wanted to recruit this powerful man, as long as their competitors didn’t get their hands on him, they would no longer send people to come.
After staying in the base for a few days, Shen Mubai went to several places without getting any hints of the energy stone. She doubted S City was too big for the system not to detect it even now.
“The fluctuation of energy stone has been detected. It is located in the southeast trading market.”
Hearing the sound of the system, Shen Mubai peered at the man next to her. He noticed her look and turned towards her, his eyes locking with hers.
Huo Junhan didn’t say anything, but Shen Mubai could decipher his thoughts through his slanted eyes.
Shen Mubai: “I want to go to the southeast trade fair.”
He walked over to her, his tall figure bringing a sense of pressure that could not be ignored. He looked at Shen Mubai for a few seconds before softly replying, “Okay, let’s go.” 3
