Unexpected Second Chance At Love Book 1 Chapter 300
Inside the penthouse, Yue Ling stood facing the front door. She regrets bidding him goodbye so fast, but if she didn't, Lu Tian would probably stall time and end up missing his flight.
She sighs at the door and turn around. However, she is met with Inu, who is staring at her with a curious expression.
Seeing how fluffy and adorable he looks, she smiles, and strides pass him.
"Come Inu. Today, we're going to enjoy the day outside."
Hearing the word 'outside', Inu's ears perk upwards and he quickly follows after his favorite human. His fluffy tail wags side to side and joys of happiness surround him with flowers.
Finally, he gets to go outside!!! Yay!!!
Outside, a black Maserati drives out of Jade Condos parking garage.
In the driver seat is a young man in his twenties, he wore a black suit with aviator sunglasses, while Jiangyu seated in the passenger seat. Unlike his usual combat gear, he also wearing a black suit.
Seated in the backseat, Lu Tian looks out the window to Jade Condo's tall structure. His eyes stare at the highest floor to his and Yue Ling's penthouse.
After a long minute, he slowly looks away and take his phone out. In a calm motion, he dials a number and put the phone next to his ear.
The call connects and rings three times before a sleepy voice answers from the other line.
["Ugh.. Hello? Who is this? Do you know how early it is?"]
As Lu Tian's deep voice continue his words, the black Maserati drives further and further away from Jade Condos.
Unknown to Lu Tian's reasons for going to City Z, Yue Ling freshen herself up and change out of her nightgown.
She wore a pair of tight yoga pant and a light grey hoodie. Reaching for a long coat, she puts it on and grab Inu's leash on the counter.
Securing it on Inu's collar, she decides to take the little fella out for an early morning walk. From there, she will plan out the rest of her day.
It didn't take long before the black Maserati arrive at a nearby private airport. Lu Tian's tall figure step out of the car and walks in the direction of his private jet.
The aura around him made the people who saw him shiver in fear as if seeing the devil in person.
Following behind him is Jiangyu and Yiqing. Both men remain straight face and each holding a black duffle bag.
The pilot driver bows in greeting to Lu Tian with two flight attendants standing at the side.
Lu Tian nod his head in response and climbs up the stairs to the private jet, but he stops when one of his foot touches the hard floor of the private jet.
An uneasy feeling rises inside him and he turn to look at the direction Jade Condos. He can see the very faint structure of the tall building in the distance.
This feeling was the same feeling he had earlier…. It felt like someone is slowly stabbing his heart.
From behind, Jiangyu confusing calls out to his boss. He didn't understand why his boss had suddenly stop.
Staring at his boss blank expression, he turns his head in the direction his boss seems to be looking at. However, he doesn't seem to understand what his boss is looking at. There isn't anything there.
Standing behind the boss and subordinate, Yiqing also turn his head to have a look. However, he too, does not understand what his boss looking at.
Lu Tian notices this from the corner of his eyes and he quickly push the uneasy feeling inside him away.
Turning away from Jade Condos, he does not say a word and enters the private jet.
Both Jiangyu and Yiqing tilt their head in the same direction as they stare blankly at the back of their boss.
The boss they know is a man who leaves traces of fear on others. He is notorious for his ruthlessness and whoever saw him lower their head in respect. Even the so call gang leaders in the underworld cower in his presence.
However, for the first time, they can't help but feel something is different....
Is something bothering their boss?
Thinking the same thing, Jiangyu turn to look at Yiqing for an answer, but only got a shrug for an answer.
Both men shrug their shoulders and quickly enter the private jet. Maybe they're just imagining things.
At the same time when Lu Tian entered the private jet, Yue Ling steps out of the elevator.
She holds the leash connecting to Inu's collar as both tall and short figure walks out of the lobby.
Just as she walks pass the front desk, she catches a glimpse of Uncle Luo standing in the hallway.
She parts her lip to greet him, but she quickly stops herself.
Uncle Luo appears to not be alone. From what she can make out, the old man seems to be talking to two workers. Due to them being quite far from her, she cannot hear what they are saying.
Deciding she'll greet him when she comes back, she lowers her head to Inu.
Inu barks excitingly and Yue Ling laughs at his happy mood. Both human and pet exit the building for their early morning walk.
However, just after they exit, Uncle Luo and the two workers turn their gaze to Yue Ling and Inu.
The look in their eyes are unreadable, before they quickly go back to their discussion.
Two hours quickly goes by and Yue Ling along with Inu returns to Jade Condo after their long morning walk around the area.
Yue Ling unlocks the door to the penthouse and just when she takes a step inside, her phone rings.
Glancing down at her phone, she sees the name of the caller and answers.
["Did I wake you up?"]
From the other line, Lu Tian's deep voice can be heard faintly from the speaker. Yue Ling held the phone with one hand and remove the leash from Inu's collar.
"No, Inu and I decided to go for a walk. We just got back."
Saying this, she looks up at the wall clock. Seeing how it hasn't been long since he left for the airport, she furrow her brows. It takes 4 hours to get to City....
"You're in City Z?"
Hearing his short answer, Yue Ling nod her head. Knowing that he arrived safely, she sighs in relief.
However, hearing his voice, she can't help but miss him more.
"Remember to eat three meals a day. It gets quite cold in City Z at night, so make sure you keep yourself warm."
"Also, don't forget to lock the door to your hotel room."
Yue Ling pout her lip hearing his answer. Was Lu Tian always the type to answer with short responses? Usually, his words to her are in full sentences…
Quickly brushing it off, she doesn't think much of it and heads for the bedroom. After taking Inu out for a walk, she wants to take a nice morning bath.
"Tian, I'm going to freshen up. Remember what I told you, okay?"
["Boss, we're here."]
From the other line, Yue Ling hears a man's voice after Lu Tian's 'mm'. Guessing they must have arrived at their location, she decides to end the call.
"Tian, I'll hang up now. Call me when you have time."
The call goes quiet and Yue Ling moves the phone from her ear. She stares at the screen and sees the call is still connected.
Maybe he hung up? Or the line disconnected?
Just when she thought of ending the call, Lu Tian's deep voice sounds again. She is taken back by surprise, but quickly put the phone next to her ear.
["I love you."]
His sudden words cause every cell inside her body to freeze. The low thumping of her heart slowly beat and gradually becomes louder.
Before she knew it, a faint smile curl on her lip and she softens.
"Mm, me too."
On the other line, Lu Tian is seated in the backseat of a car. His expression is soft as a faint smile also curl on his lip hearing his wife's voice.
He moves the phone from his ear and end the call.
Staring at the phone in his hand, he really wish to go back to Imperial and be with his wife. Only when he sees her can he be at ease.
He place the phone in his pocket and step out of the car.
The cold wind brush pass him as the black coat chosen by his wife gently sway.
His head tilt back and his sharp knife-like gaze looks at the tall dark building in front.
The soft expression he had seconds ago vanishes as coldness replace it.
Taking a step forward, he strides in the direction of the door entrance.
Jiangyu and Yiqing nod their head at the same time and follows closely behind.
Both men's expressions remain unmoving, but their eyes didn't forget to scan their surroundings.
Their movement is cautious and attentive. Leaving nothing out of their sight.
As they near the entrance of the building, the tinted glass door is push open and a man wearing a navy suit steps out.
He holds the door open and politely smile with a nod seeing Lu Tian.
"Mr. Lu, it is a pleasure to see you again. Please come in."
Lu Tian glance at the man and nod his head without saying a word. Doing so, he moves his eyes from the man and enters the tall dark building.
