848 Lurking Forces Ⅶ

 Perhaps because he had stood in the open for too long, Huo Shaoheng's voice was slightly hoarse like someone had taken a soft and fluffy goose feather to tickle her ear, but it made his voice even more attractive. She tingled from her ears to her neck, and her heart fluttered.

However, as Huo Shaoheng spoke, Gu Nianzhi managed to snap back to reality.

Her face was flushed, and she bit tightly on her lower lip as if her life depended on it. Her neck was stiff, but she willed herself not to make any noise even though she wanted to...

However, her reason was telling her that what she was doing was wrong. She had to hang in there. She wasn't prepared to accept Huo Shaoheng again, so she shouldn't be so close to him.

Seeing her like this, Huo Shaoheng smiled and chuckled softly. He placed one hand around her waist, and the other hand went to her chin, supporting it. His thumb went to her lips, and he began caressing her lower lip.

As if on cue, Gu Nianzhi instinctively opened her mouth, and he released her lower lip.

Huo Shaoheng lowered his head and kissed her.

However, this time around, he stuck out the tip of his tongue and licked Gu Nianzhi's lower lip gently-the part that she bit on just now-and said, "I will punish you like this henceforth if I catch you biting on your lips ever again."

When he spoke near her lips, she could feel his warm breath on her, which made her realize she was losing herself slowly.

Gu Nianzhi felt that she was being seduced. She opened her arms and hugged Huo Shaoheng. She could not control herself. It was an instinct, and she could not resist it.

With such a fragile, soft, and beautiful girl in his embrace, Huo Shaoheng was mesmerized by her smell. It attracted him so much.

However, the moment he allowed his arm to begin roaming, Gu Nianzhi felt the movement, and she stiffened.

Huo Shaoheng could only suppress his initial primal desires and continued to kiss her gently. He could sensitively feel that Gu Nianzhi liked being treated tenderly like this.

Perhaps he had been too rough on her in the past, but to a man, what he wanted to do was to get to the main point with the girl he loved, and Huo Shaoheng was way more masculine than a normal man, having trained and worked in the army for so long. Therefore, his testosterone levels were way higher.

To let Gu Nianzhi feel secure, he controlled and suppressed all his desires and kissed her slowly, over and over, and over again, never getting tired of it.

He kissed her lightly before moving away. Then, he kissed her again, lightly, before moving away again. He did that repeatedly.

When Gu Nianzhi felt that it was not enough, she would moan so very softly, and he would remain a little longer on her lips.

When she was just beginning to return the kiss, he would move away slightly and make her go to him.

Gu Nianzhi's arms moved up to his neck from his waist, and eventually, her entire self was almost hanging on to Huo Shaoheng.

She was kissing so passionately. It was like telling him all the other kisses from the past did not matter, and this was the one that mattered, that it could be there for him to reminisce over whenever he was alone.

When she had finally snapped back to reality from the kiss, she realized that she had fallen again.

She had initially returned to her dormitory to have a change of clothes before bedtime, so she did not have on a brassiere. She only put on a loose cotton teddy bear sweater for comfort.

She did not expect him to be here. It seemed like everything had been planned and prepared for him!

She panted as she dropped both her arms. Her voice was slightly hoarse as she asked, "What are you doing?"

Huo Shaoheng was not fazed. "Your clothes. They are a mess. I will adjust them for you." He answered her calmly.

Gu Nianzhi glared at him. She could not understand how this man could use such a normal and calm tone to talk about something so embarrassing!

"All right, it's late. Go to bed. I will leave after you are asleep." Huo Shaoheng did not leave any room for negotiation as he pulled her hand and led her into the bedroom.

Gu Nianzhi stopped in her tracks at the door and said, as her back faced Huo Shaoheng: "I will sleep on my own. You should go back. It is already very late."

"Okay, sure." Huo Shaoheng looked at her slender back view and could not bear to leave.

Huo Shaoheng noticed that her long hair was messy due to their kiss. So, he smoothed her hair and took the opportunity to hug her from behind. Then, he whispered into her ear softly, "Goodnight, little darling."

Gu Nianzhi nodded and replied softly: "Hmm...You too."

"Mm." Huo Shaoheng hugged her loosely and took a deep breath on the nape of her neck and paused slightly, not to make any noise before letting go, turning around, and leaving.

Gu Nianzhi willed herself not to turn around.

When she heard that the door to her living room open and close, she knew that Huo Shaoheng had indeed left. She breathed a sigh of relief and closed her door before flinging herself onto her bed.

She was exhausted-mentally and emotionally. She had gone through another round of adrenaline rush for her senses, and it drained her thoroughly. She fell asleep the moment her head found her pillow.

...

The next day, Gu Nianzhi woke up feeling refreshed, like she had taken some miraculous medication the day before. She felt confident, like nothing in the world could stop her from doing what she wanted to do.

She got out of bed, dressed, had her breakfast, and intended to go to the police station that was beside Ye Xuan's condominium apartment to request the CCTV footage on the day the incident happened as evidence.

However, the moment she arrived at the lobby, she saw He Zhichu leaning against his Maserati. He was waiting for her.

"Professor He?" Gu Nianzhi was taken aback. "Are you looking for me? Is there anything the matter?"

"Aren't you going to court? Let's head over together." He Zhichu was worried about her if she was to do this alone. Since he did not have any major lectures these couple of days, he wanted to accompany her.

Gu Nianzhi had wanted to reject him, but He Zhichu seemed to have read her mind. Looking slightly frustrated, he opened the door to the driver's seat and went in on his own and placed his hands on his steering wheel. Then, he turned to Gu Nianzhi. "If you do not wish for this to become complicated, it will be better if I were to be with you."

"Why is that so?" Gu Nianzhi raised her eyebrows. "This is different from when we were in America."

Gu Nianzhi believed that those people's main base was in America. Therefore, they would have more people over there and could do much more as they had more influence. However, this was the Huaxia Empire, and she felt she would be safe here.

He Zhichu looked away and said flatly, "They have people here as well. We are the ones in the open, and they are the ones always in the dark. It would not be easy to defend against them. Do not underestimate how much like bastards they can be."

Gu Nianzhi suddenly thought of the incident of the H3ab7 drug, and immediately opened the door of the car and went in. She spoke glumly. "Thank you, Professor He."

He Zhichu was even more annoyed than before.

In his opinion, their relationship had improved, at least a little, since yesterday. However, Huo Shaoheng had dropped by after, and everything had returned to where they once were again.

Could he not be compared to Huo Shaoheng?

He Zhichu kept a stern face, started the engine of the car, and drove toward the police station near Ye Xuan's condominium apartment.

They arrived at the police station and requested the footage as evidence in court.

The police officers took a look at their lawyer's certification and called the court that was in charge of Ye Xuan's case. Only after they had understood the entire situation did they bring Gu Nianzhi and He Zhichu to the building where all the CCTV footage was stored.

There were professionals in charge of looking out for different CCTV cameras throughout the day.

Gu Nianzhi told the person in charge the time and location of the footage she had required for use in court.

Their information was stored in the computer system and labeled individually, so it was not difficult at all to get the ones they needed. In merely a couple of minutes, they had managed to find the footage that Gu Nianzhi wanted.

From the footage, Gu Nianzhi saw that Ye Xuan had walked well into the visibility of the camera and entered the area of his condominium apartment.

Then, until the next day when he had to go to work, he did not leave the place at all.

This meant that when Gu Yanran said that Ye Xuan had "beaten her up and abused her" in her home that night, she was lying about it.

All they needed was this footage as evidence in court.

As for whether Ye Xuan would have snuck out using a different way, they could view the CCTV footage from the other gates of the condominium apartment area as supporting evidence.

It would not be easy though, in an era like this, where everyone had mobile phones and everywhere had CCTV for security purposes, to sneak around.

Gu Nianzhi filled out a form in the police station and requested a copy of the footage. She kept it safely with the document she had prepared to request the court to revoke all charges against Ye Xuan.

With that, she carried her bag and left the police station.

He Zhichu had left first to go and get the car. Gu Nianzhi was waiting for him along the road near the police station.

She was wearing a light-brown woolen sweater with long puffy sleeves, a cute woven woolen hat, and a pair of long boots in black. She was as eye-catching as she was beautiful. When the pedestrians, drivers, riders, and passengers saw a tall and slender lady with big eyes like a fairy standing by the road, they all felt like their day had become better.

The police station was located at a corner of an intersection with traffic lights. It was peak hours when many people were heading to work, so there were lots of cars at the traffic light waiting for the traffic light to turn green.

There was someone who looked just like a normal citizen diagonally left behind Gu Nianzhi. He had a cup of Starbucks in one hand and his phone in another, as he looked through news articles.

And diagonally right in front of her was a lady in her 40s holding on to a plastic bag, wearing an oversized flower printed sweater, also waiting for a car.

There were many cars on the road in front of them, and they were so close to each other that they were almost tailgating.

He Zhichu's car was just behind a couple of cars, still stuck in the jam.

He saw Gu Nianzhi wave to him with smiles from his car. He smiled back at her and waved, feeling happy.

Right at the moment, a motorbike sped from the street between the cars and headed directly toward the place where Gu Nianzhi was standing. A speeding bike stood out among a sea of cars caught in a terrible jam.

Therefore, almost everyone was looking.

The normal-looking man holding on to a cup of Starbucks kept his phone and walked toward Gu Nianzhi calmly, covering the area on her left.

The woman in her mid-40s moved toward Gu Nianzhi as well and covered the area on her right.

Gu Nianzhi realized that there was something weird-something fierce about the rider on the motorbike-and took a couple of steps backward.

Right at that moment, He Zhichu realized that a tiny red dot had moved silently, but steadily, to Gu Nianzhi's chest area.

His mind buzzed and stopped thinking. In a flash, he opened his car door and rushed toward her, jumping over the hood of his car like he was jumping over a hurdle during a race.

At the same time, the motorbike had already managed to swerve into the road where Gu Nianzhi was waiting. The rider pulled on the handles of the motorbike and managed to fling it upward. The next thing everyone knew, he flung the bike right toward Gu Nianzhi.

The normal-looking man on her left stuck out a leg and kicked the bike, and the bike flew to the pedestrian walkway and landed there, overturned and damaged.

The rider who intended to lunge forward to snatch Gu Nianzhi's bag fell to the side along with the bike as well.

The normal-looking man's hand turned, and a boiling hot cup of Starbucks poured down the neck of the rider.

The rider screamed in pain.

The woman on Gu Nianzhi's right quickly moved Gu Nianzhi to her back and stood in front of her, shielding her sight from everything that was going on.

These two people were people in charge of security from the Special Forces, specially arranged by Huo Shaoheng. There would be different people around her to protect her as long as she went out.

However, only He Zhichu had realized that the bike was used only to divert the attention of everyone.

The moment he realized that the red dot had secured its position and was not moving anymore, He Zhichu panicked and hurled himself in front, pushing the woman in her mid-40s and Gu Nianzhi down onto the ground together.

Then he hugged Gu Nianzhi tightly and rolled quickly toward the entrance of the police station.

Almost at the same time, a series of bullets shot from silenced guns landed near the place from where he and Gu Nianzhi had just rolled.
