Chapter 45: Hard to Understand
Lin Nan was right beside Li Ran.
It was difficult to not attract attention. The women would often take a second look at Lin Nan’s handsome face.
A bodyguard was also behind them.
Li Ran was already ‘famous’ so when people saw the scene, they were all more astonished than ever and had their gazes fixed on her.
There was no escape from their babble.
“Li Tao is so cunning. She has her fingers around all kinds of people. It’s unfair. Someone is always there to protect her!”
“She’s so shallow. Just because she’s beautiful, she gets all the advantages. I don’t know if this is sad or funny.”
“I heard that Cui Chong was caught by this man.”
People were gossiping loudly without any self-restraint and the volume of their voices became louder and louder.
Since Li Ran was used to it, it did not affect her too much.
However, Lin Nan was very displeased.
“It seems that I will have to make Cui Chong apologize to you in front of everyone. Only then will these rumors stop.”
Lin Nan originally wanted to settle things privately. He did not expect the matter to have such a great impact.
Li Ran smiled and moved closer to Lin Nan. She sighed and said, “It’s useless. People won’t believe you and they will think whatever they want. In fact, they would probably say that you abused your power and forced Cui Chong into submission.”
Lin Nan raised his eyebrows.
“So what? I don’t want to hear anything coming from their mouths. If they keep it up, I will kick them out from the safety base.”
“Oh, you’re acting too impulsively.”
Li Ran felt a warmness in her heart. Hearing what her husband had said was more than enough.
“No, I’m not. We need to create a healthy atmosphere.”
Li Ran could not help herself but smile. Her eyes were bright and full of vigor.
Lin Ke saw Li Ran from afar and rushed towards her.
Without holding back, she chided, “Woman, do you know how worried I was about you?”
“I’m sorry. I did not have the opportunity to tell you anything.”
“It’s okay, I’m just relieved that you’re safe. We can talk about it later!”
Li Ran promised that she would look for her later.
Lin Ke smiled and made an “Ok” gesture.
Then, she slipped away.
Once she left, another voice could be heard.
“So, who is this? Why is there a surprise the moment I return?”
It was Fang Lin.
Lin Nan and Fang Lin fist-bumped each other as a form of greeting.
Fang Lin then turned around and looked at Li Ran. He said mischievously, “Hello, sister-in-law! You are indeed as beautiful as a flower. It’s a pity that you’re with Lin Nan. He had really scored.”
“Stop speaking nonsense.”
Lin Nan could not be bothered with Fang Lin. He held Li Ran’s hand and walked towards a room.
“By the way, I forgot to inform you that most of our troops had been transferred away. There was a horde of zombies and we were preparing to blow them up. So, a lot of manpower was needed.”
“Yeah, they are your soldiers. You can transfer them all you want. Why do you need to report it to me?”
“When have I not reported to you?”
Fang Lin really wanted to retort, but he changed his mind after seeing Li Ran.
“You don’t know what you’re talking about. If your brain is damaged, go see a doctor.”
“How did your people deal with the matter?”
“Oh, do you mean Cui Chong? We haven’t dealt with him yet. Are the both of you going over there? To see how I deal with him?”
“Yes, we are.”
“Aren’t you afraid of scaring your wife?” Fang Lin said shamelessly.
Li Ran chuckled, “I’m not afraid. I want to torture him to death.”
“What a woman. She looks gentle but the moment she opens her mouth, she’s ruthless!”
Fang Lin smiled as he looked at Lin Nan.
How did he subdue such a woman? There were no merits to Lin Nan’s besides his looks!
