KEEP WAITING FOR YOU
(Why Is She Running?)
Perhaps, it wasn’t that this thought never occurred to Bai Shuangshuang; it was just that she felt that it was all fine since wasn’t the one going to get her hands dirty doing the deed, anyway.
Bai Shuangshuang saw that Xiao Li was hesitant and refused to agree. Her face darkened and her voice turned cold. “If you are being so hesitant, coming up with all sorts of excuses just to avoid doing such a small matter, then you don’t have to continue working for me either. Go and find some other better employer.”
“I… I got it. I’ll head over.” With trembling hands, Xiao Li took the pocket knife and hid it in her sleeve.
“Go now!” Bai Shuangshuang chased her away unhappily.
If Xiao Li hadn’t listened to her, she definitely would have fired her on the spot.
Dawdling, Xiao Li said, “I’ll… I’ll head there in a while. If I go in there too early and stay around without leaving, it will make others suspicious.”
“That’s up to you.” Bai Shuangshuang said coldly, “But you definitely have to finish what I’ve told you to do.”
Xiao Li stayed until 50 minutes were left and then finally left the room, her heart beating nervously.
She stopped right outside the door of Lu Man’s room. After much time, she still didn’t dare to go in and kept taking in deep breaths.
Seeing that time was slowly ticking away, if she still didn’t enter now Lu Man would probably get dressed already and then it would be too late.
Thus, with a heavy heart and gritted teeth, Xiao Li finally pressed the doorbell.
Someone from the inside called out in acknowledgment and the door was opened after that.
The one who opened the door was a stranger. It was someone from Shi Xiaoya’s team.
“I’m here to meet Lu Man.” Xiao Li smiled.
Seeing that it was someone who knew Lu Man, the other person let Xiao Li in.
Shi Xiaoya was currently putting makeup on for Lu Man, while someone else was busy doing Lu Man’s hair.
The others were working by the side too. Everyone had crowded around Lu Man.
Looking at Lu Man’s current state, she was more a top-star than an actual top star.
Shi Xiaoya stopped and turned to look at Xiao Li.
At that moment, Xiao Li confirmed that it was Shi Xiaoya indeed.
Lu Man was surrounded by people and could barely even see the mirror. Just then, she gestured to the hairstylist, asking her to pause for a moment.
Turning around, Lu Man saw Xiao Li. Suspicious, she raised her eyebrows. “What’s the matter?”
Xiao Li tried her best to compose her own expression. She laughed dryly. “Sister Shuangshuang got me to come over to take a look and see if you’re ready.”
Lu Man raised her eyebrows. “Soon.”
“Then that’s fine. Mainly because this your first time attending such an event, Sister Shuangshuang was afraid that you might face some issue or need help, so she got me to come over to take a look. If there’s anything that you don’t know or anything you need help with, feel free to tell me.”
Lu Man laughed inwardly. Bai Shuangshuang would be so kind?
Perhaps Bai Shuangshuang was finally not being an id*ot, and had the heart to fix their relationship. Even if she can’t make it such that they were close friends, at least she didn’t want to create an enemy either.
However, Lu Man still felt that Bai Shuangshuang wasn’t someone who was so smart.
Anyway, no matter what Bai Shuangshuang had planned for her, she will take what comes at her in stride and deal with Bai Shuangshuang had prepared for her.
Not letting any of her thoughts be expressed on her face, Lu Man said, “Help me to thank Miss Bai then. As you can tell, I’m busy right here, so I can’t care about you and won’t ask you to stay.”
“Oh, sure.” Xiao Li said, dawdling. She saw that Lu Man’s dress for tonight was hanging somewhere not too far away from the door.
Seizing the opportunity now when no one was noticing her, Xiao Li hurriedly scooted over.
She was so nervous that she completely couldn’t even care which part of the dress she was going to ruin. Without even bothering to look, she hurriedly took out the pocket knife and ruthlessly slashed across the leather skirt.
The sharpest tip of the pocket knife directly pierced through the leather skirt.
Still worried that it wasn’t be ruined enough, Xiao Li held onto the pocket knife and heartlessly slashed across again, making a long tear across the leather skirt. Then, she hurriedly kept the pocket knife back.
At that moment, she couldn’t even care whether others would realize her strange behavior and directly dashed out of the room.
Having just finished Lu Man’s lip makeup, from the corner of her eye, Shi Xiaoya happened to see Xiao Li’s figure running away like she was escaping from something. Finding it strange, she frowned. “Why is she running? She looks so nervous like a thief running away from the police.”
