The Indifferent Young Master’s Flash Marriage - Chapter 524 - A Battle With Heavy Losses
Chapter 524: A Battle With Heavy Losses
Realizing that Su Wan wanted to push him under the bed, the man with the jade demon eyes slapped Su Wan’s hand away, and his face immediately darkened.
“You want me to hide in that kind of place?”
Su Wan glanced at the man with the jade demon eyes with disdain. He was already under fire, so why was he still pretending to be arrogant?
Shouldn’t survival be the most important thing currently?!
She had yet to find Jiang Xuecheng, and she did not want to lose her life in vain because of this man.
If the man with the jade demon eyes did not want to crawl under the bed because of his dignity, he would just have to give up his dignity!
“Do you think there’s another place to hide here?”
Hearing the footsteps getting closer and closer, Su Wan’s almond-shaped eyes were stunned, and she pushed the man impatiently.
The man with the jade demon eyes weighed it in his heart, but in the end, he gritted his teeth and reluctantly moved in.
It was really dirty under the bed!
Although there were no spider webs or anything like that, he was still unfortunate enough to get a face full of dust.
The man with the jade demon eyes had always thought that he did not have mysophobia, but today’s situation had refreshed his understanding once again.
He pursed his lips in disgust. His pair of demonic green eyes narrowed into a thin line as he vigilantly observed the situation outside.
Just as Su Wan had just tidied up the quilt and the like, there was a sudden knock on the door.
“Su Wan, are you there?”
Su Wan raised her eyebrows in surprise. She had thought that the person who had come to chase after the man would break into the door in such a hurry. She did not expect him to be so polite.
Su Wan restrained her expression and stood up silently. She could not help but guess the identity of the man with the jade demon eyes.
She walked out of the door and pushed it open. A familiar face appeared outside. It was the old man who had interviewed her for the job, Uncle Wang.
Su Wan looked behind him without batting an eyelid. As expected, she saw two fierce-looking men standing behind Uncle Wang. Each of them held a plasma beam gun in their hands. They looked like two immovable door gods.
Su Wan acted as if she didn’t know anything. First, she pretended to yawn. When she saw the plasma beam guns in the hands of the men, she immediately frowned.
Su Wan’s eyes widened in fear. She looked at Uncle Wang, her teeth chattering.
“Uncle Wang… What happened? Did… something happen?”
Su Wan’s interstellar language was not good to begin with. Now that she was shocked, she stumbled.
She had to put on a good show. Su Wan was well-versed in this. With her teeth chattering, she looked as innocent as she could be.
When the man with the jade demon eyes heard Su Wan’s words, he could not help but laugh in his heart. Although he could only see the shoes of those people from a short gap, he could still picture Su Wan’s current expression in his mind.
Speaking of which, when this woman was threatened by him with a knife, her expression was still rather calm.
The man with the jade demon eyes silently smirked. After escaping from that damned place, this was the first time he felt interested in someone else.
When Uncle Wang saw Su Wan’s frightened appearance, most of the suspicions in his heart disappeared.
These past few days, Su Wan had been working on the passenger ship and had never once stolen a day off. Moreover, she had never been a chatterbox. Even if she had only received half of her salary, she had never complained. She seemed to be an especially honest little girl.
Uncle Wang still had some sympathy for this poor little girl.
No matter how he looked at it, with this girl’s courage, she did not seem to be someone who would hide a criminal.
Uncle Wang strode into the room. He carefully looked at the clean furnishings in the lower cabin and was a little surprised.
Before Su Wan checked in, this place was a mess.
However, because everything had been sorted out, it looked like there was no place to hide.
“Su Wan, you seem to have tidied up this place quite well.”
A cautious smile appeared on Su Wan’s face. She deliberately led Uncle Wang to stand in front of the bed. She fearfully glanced at the two door gods outside and reached out to wipe the sweat off her forehead.
Su Wan’s mind was full of thoughts, and her brain was spinning faster and faster.
The most dangerous place was the safest place.
As long as Uncle Wang was standing in front of the bed, he would have a blind spot in his vision, and he would subconsciously ignore this hiding spot.
The most important thing now was to put on a good show of her suffering, so that Uncle Wang could stand in a superior position and sympathize with her.
People often looked down from above, and they always felt that a lowly person could not do anything.
And what Su Wan wanted to use was precisely this kind of conceited mentality of his.
As long as she lowered Uncle Wang’s guard against her, he would not let anyone search her.
The worst-case scenario was that Uncle Wang would let those people in to search her, and Uncle Wang himself would leave this position. That would be worse.
Su Wan gave Uncle Wang a cautious smile. There was some fear and trepidation on her face.
“I live here, so of course I will tidy up better. Uncle Wang, did I do something wrong? Or is it because of the identity card problem, you want to send someone to chase me away?”
Su Wan looked at Uncle Wang pitifully. She kept twisting her fingers, looking wronged and afraid.
Uncle Wang stood in front of the bed with his hands behind his back. He looked at Su Wan’s expression, which did not seem fake. In addition, Su Wan had been begging for work because she did not have an identity card a few days ago, so he could understand her nervousness at the moment.
A sharp light flashed in Uncle Wang’s old eyes. He carefully scanned all the places in front of him again, but in the end, he found nothing.
Uncle Wang shifted his gaze back to Su Wan. He looked at her and asked hesitantly.
“Su Wan, have you seen any special people today?”
“Special people? No…”
Su Wan was stunned. She scratched her head as if she was thinking hard. Then, her eyes drifted to the two strong men outside the door.
“Do they count?”
Su Wan’s voice was very soft. She spoke carefully with an obvious fear on her face.
Uncle Wang stared at Su Wan for a long time without blinking. Finally, he reached out and stroked her head.
“Alright, sorry to bother you. Today’s goods are added to the warehouse. You should have just returned, right? Rest early.”
As he spoke, Uncle Wang walked out of the door.
Seeing that these people did not even need to carry out the search procedures, the man who was curled up under the bed heaved a sigh of relief. At the same time, he was secretly shocked at Su Wan.
She was an ordinary woman who worked on a passenger ship to earn a living, and she could not even speak the interstellar language, yet she actually had such guts.
Previously, when he saw Su Wan guide Uncle Wang towards the edge of the bed, the man with the jade demon eyes actually had a little worry in his heart.
Just as Uncle Wang was about to walk out of the room, as if Su Wan suddenly changed her mind, she called out to him.
The man with the jade demon eyes had a cold look in his eyes, and his heart was in his throat.
Could it be that this woman suddenly thought it through and decided to expose him and cause a battle with heavy losses?!
The man with the jade demon eyes had a vigilant look on his face as he secretly calculated his chance to escape. If he really wanted to leave, the two people outside the door wouldn’t be able to stop him.
However, he had used his special ability excessively and his body was already very weak. If he forcefully used it again, it was very likely that he would end up in a coma or worse…
