Chapter 13

  “May I have a tour?” Qin Wanshu asked Zuo Qinghuan after drinking coffee.

  Zuo Qinghuan thought to herself that Qin Wanshu wasn’t a plebeian like her. Thus, when she visited the mansion, she wanted to look around. Although the home Han Shibin bought for her was luxurious, it should be ordinary in the eyes of the super wealthy Qin Wanshu. The most important thing was that Zuo Qinghuan wasn’t sure if there were traces of clues regarding her identity strewn about. After all, Qin Wanshu seemed to be an attentive person. Zuo Qinghuan suddenly didn’t want Qin Wanshu to discover her identity too early. Maybe they wouldn’t be able to get along so easily and happily as they do now.

  “My place is much inferior to your home. There’s nothing to see.” Zuo Qinghuan was humble. However, she visited her home last time and had a generous tour, so she looked stingy.

  “Is this the study? Can I go in?” Qin Wanshu asked and pointed to the adjoining room.

  ”…Yes…” Zuo Qinghuan was fortunate that she and Han Shibin were quite cautious. They hardly took any photos together. However, Zuo Qinghuan was quite surprised that Qin Wanshu was so curious about her home.

  “The layout of your study is quite similar to my husband’s study. The habits of where things are placed are quite similar, even the books are quite similar.” Qin Wanshu picked up the books from the bookshelf and quietly said to herself, people’s habits really don’t change. It even permeates into every detail in life.

  Zuo Qinghuan’s heart thumped. The last time she went to Qin Wanshu’s house, she didn’t notice at all. But when Qin Wanshu said this, she realized the similarity of the layout and item placement in both studies. Qin Wanshu really is a meticulous person.

  “If you say it like that, it makes me look as if I don’t notice such things. Now that you mention it, it really does look similar. What a coincidence oh…” Zuo Qinghuan said with a covert smile.

  Qin Wanshu’s eyes swept over the ashtray, lighter and cigar on the table, feeling a little complicated. She remembered that Han Shibin used to smoke, but she didn’t like the smell of cigarettes, so he quit. She didn’t expect that he didn’t quit but just went somewhere else to smoke.  

  “Cuban cigars. My husband also likes them very much.” Qin Wanshu’s eyes were fixed on the Cuban cigars. Not many people could smoke top-grade Cuban cigars. White-collar workers couldn’t afford it. These products could only be purchase by those who were on the executive level.1It’s the career chain…executive level is like the top-ranking level in the corporate world

  ”What a coincidence…” Zuo Qinghuan couldn’t laugh or cry. It wasn’t her imagination. Today, Qin Wanshu kept mentioning Han Shibin ever since she came over. She was being deliberate since Qin Wanshu definitely isn’t the type of person who would constantly mention her husband. Does she know who I am? Zuo Qinghuan had some uncertain speculations in her heart. If she knew her identity, it was fine to reveal her identity. Why would she beat around the bush like this?

  “Yes ah. It’s really a coincidence. Even the place where he works is the same. They both work at Hancheng International Group.” Qin Wanshu looked at the business planner book on the desk, then gently shifted her eyes to Zuo Qinghuan’s face. Zuo Qinghuan felt that she was naked before Qin Wanshu’s gaze, it really felt terrible.

  ”Do you know?” Zuo Qinghuan asked tentatively.

  “What do I know?” Qin Wanshu raised her eyebrows and asked back. The expression on Qin Wanshu’s face made Zuo Qinghuan unable to guess her emotions. She was still so elegant, but her eyes didn’t have any temperature. Such a wife would really make any mistress feel very stressed. At the very least, it made Zuo Qinghuan feel like a mouse being stared at by a cat. She doesn’t know if the cat was going to devour her or toy with her for a while before ripping her apart. This feeling was terrible.

  ”You know what I’m talking about.” Zuo Qinghuan was already 70% certain that Qin Wanshu knew about her. Since she’s been exposed, then she can only reveal her cards.

  “I don’t understand.” The feeling of being discovered by others was different from disclosing the information yourself. It was easy to have the mentality of a dead pig who isn’t afraid of boiling water.2The pig is going to be dead since it’s being dumped in boiling water or facing it, but acts unfazed about it. AKA ZQ denying being the mistress up front if QW straight up confronted her. In this case, QW wants her to admit it to humiliate her. She couldn’t stop that from happening. But if she had the mentality of disclosing the information herself, there will be a sense of shame. Surprisingly, Qin Wanshu doesn’t want to let Zuo Qinghuan off lightly.

  Zuo Qinghuan looked at Qin Wanshu, the expression on her face didn’t change. She looked at her with slight mockery, it made Zuo Qinghuan feel uncomfortable.

  ”Qin Wanshu, do you look down on people like me?” Zuo Qinghuan asked, feeling faintly uncomfortable. She was looked down upon by everyone and didn’t care. But she didn’t want to be looked down upon by Qin Wanshu.

  “What kind of person are you?” Qin Wanshu asked and raised her eyebrows. Her eyes revealed her slight interest. She wanted to know what kind of person Zuo Qinghuan classified herself as.

  Damn. Zuo Qinghuan suddenly understood why Qin Wanshu was beating around the bush. This woman wanted to humiliate her and used her own mouth to humiliate herself. Zuo Qinghuan was very sensitive. Once she feels that others have ill-intentions towards her, she would be completely vigilant and counterattack. She often took the initiative to bite others first.

  “Aren’t we sharing a man? If something is good, naturally more people will use it.” Zuo Qinghuan said righteously. She never felt sorry for being a mistress. Flies are attracted to cracked eggs.3This is a derogatory sentence…it means everything happens for a reason. Also, flies are attracted to things that smell dirty and a cracked egg is usually rotten smelling. Flies are men and eggs are women, thus a man is going to go for the woman cause it’s what attracts them. Originally this matter had the mutual consent of both parties. Zuo Qinghuan raised her face slightly with her sharp chin pointed out arrogantly. Along with her straight back that seemed to be ready to strike back at any time. She didn’t allow herself to be humiliated in front of Qin Wanshu. Her pride stemmed from her enemy’s contempt. Although there was a feeling of self-disgust in her heart, she suppressed that feeling temporarily.

  Qin Wanshu didn’t expect Zuo Qinghuan to admit her identity so quickly. It was really ironic that she had an arrogant expression on her face as the mistress.

  Qin Wanshu raised the corner of her mouth slightly, and the cold, mocking smile slightly pricked Zuo Qinghuan’s self-esteem. She thought that Qin Wanshu would act differently, but it seemed that she was really ridiculous herself. 

  “It’s not worth mentioning the matter between you and Han Shibin. I want you to disappear. That’s simpler than killing an ant, but I want to know, what’s your purpose for approaching me?” Qin Wanshu was not deceived by Zuo Qinghuan’s arrogant posture. She approached Zuo Qinghuan, and Zuo Qinghuan unconsciously took a step back.

  Qin Wanshu’s voice was so gentle, and her expression was so elegant, but she said such vicious words. Now Qin Wanshu’s eyes widened. It turned out that Qin Wanshu wasn’t as harmless as she appeared. At that moment, Qin Wanshu’s body carried a dangerous aura, which made her a little afraid. She thought that if Qin Wanshu really wanted her to disappear, it really might be easier than killing an ant.

  “You’re so smart, but you can’t guess the answer yourself.” Zuo Qinghuan continued to bluff. But in fact, she didn’t know why she wanted to get close to Qin Wanshu herself either. If she came into contact with the current Qin Wanshu in front of her initially, she believed that she wouldn’t dare to provoke Qin Wanshu even if she died. This woman obviously wasn’t a good person.

  ”Zuo Qinghuan, do you know what your biggest mistake is?” Qin Wanshu was very close to Zuo Qinghuan, and Qin Wanshu’s voice was so soft that it floated beside Zuo Qinghuan’s ears. She felt that she was so close to her that Zuo Qinghuan fearfully had goosebumps.

  However, Zuo Qinghuan was a person who doesn’t shed tears even if she saw her own coffin. Her heart was clearly frightened to death, but her mouth kept provoking her.

  “My biggest mistake was that I’m not frigid, but you are!” Zuo Qinghuan regretted that she succeeded in making Qin Wanshu’s eyes glow with anger. She wasn’t ignorant about understanding people. On the contrary, she was a person who could read people’s faces. However, why was she talking back to her so hot-headedly? It wasn’t good for her to keep provoking Qin Wanshu. For the first time, she wanted to sew her dirty mouth shut. Or did she subconsciously hope that Qin Wanshu would return being the Qin Wanshu that she knew previously?

  Qin Wanshu narrowed her eyes. She was infuriated. It could be said that she treated this woman sincerely, but the woman didn’t feel any guilt but also mocked her, which was absolutely hateful.

  Qin Wanshu had already cornered Zuo Qinhuan close to the corner of the wall. Zuo Qinghuan had no way to retreat. Zuo Qinghuan wasn’t sure if Qin Wanshu was going to slap her across the face. She was originally supposed to play the mistress. That common scene wasn’t so uncommon, or…

  “Do you really want to know if I’m frigid?” Qin Wanshu darkly looked at Zuo Qinghuan and asked.

  “Actually, there’s nothing wrong with whether you’re frigid or not.  What you don’t want is to feel frigid and for me and Han Shibin to be so cheap together…” Zuo Qinghuan quickly said with a smile. Zuo Qinghuan felt that she had a good attitude being straightforward. However, she didn’t know that Qin Wanshu was angry because she kept mentioning frigid. For a moment, Qin Wanshu, who was muddleheaded, sealed her lips against Zuo Qinghuan’s lips, as if to prove that she wasn’t frigid.

  Zuo Qinghuan never expected that Qin Wanshu would kiss her. She was stunned and didn’t react. But soon after, she reacted and felt that Qin Wanshu really made her dizzy with confusion. Otherwise, why did she deliver herself to her door? Zuo Qinghuan didn’t reject that feeling of being kissed by Qin Wanshu. On the contrary, she liked it very much.

  Soon, Zuo Qinghuan followed her body’s feelings and changed from being passive to aggressive. She kissed Qin Wanshu back. Zuo Qinghuan’s kiss was more erotic and affectionate than Qin Wanshu’s light kiss. Her deft tongue arrived at Qin Wanshu’s mouth and gently licked and played with it. It was extremely provocative and such a tease…

  Qin Wanshu suddenly pushed Zuo Qinghuan away. She thought that she was crazy for doing such a thing. She wanted to rip out Zuo Qinghuan’s heart at this moment. This was all Zuo Qinghuan’s fault!
