Then it clicked him that seven years back she said something about her best invention, which she promised to launch with him but fate separated them. What if that invention was a software and somebody snatched it from her?
Watching the huge success of SIRIUS, that software also must be capable enough to be a big hit it in the market. When he checked the data of the software's that were launched in the past seven years… except for Infinity Software, none of the other software manages to create a sensation in the market.
His mind froze and heart almost stopped, thinking about an ominous possibility. And if that is true, then the distance between them will only increase further…
Praying thousand times to god that his doubt was wrong…. Just to try his luck, he checked the dates of the contract of Infinity Software, which unfortunately clashes with the time when he was in a coma seven years back.
To clear his doubt further, he personally scanned the coding technique of a random software developed by Kong Liu. To his surprise, Kong Liu's technique was entirely different then what is used in Infinity Software. It was then clear to him that Infinity Software was not made by Kong Liu.
Now the only doubt left was if Infinity was developed by Xiu Mei or not. And the mystery behind the software was solved when the technique used by SIRIUS and Infinity software was exactly the same. They both were developed by the same person, Xiu Mei. Infinity was Xiu Mei's same invention she talked to him seven years back…
Suddenly in his peripheral vision, Feng Jianyu noticed a black Bugatti Veyron car enters inside and stopped not too far from his car. As the door opened, a tall man wearing shades, disembarked from the car. Although he could only see the back of the man, this is more than enough for Jianyu to recognize him… He is the King of the underworld, Lu Xion.
With his deep and sharp, eagle-like eyes, he noticed Lu Xion carefully, 'Soon we will meet Lu Xion…'
Suddenly his eyes narrowed when Xion punched the passcode at the same elevator that Xiu Mei used a while ago. Gnashing his teeth Jianyu was about to get off the car when the elevator sound beeped. He stopped and waited for a while…
Holding a bag in her hands Xiu Mei gets off the elevator and unknowingly collided with the Xion who was standing right outside the elevator. Due to the sudden momentum, the bag falls down from her hands, she lost her balance and was pushed backward. She clenched her eyes, ready to fall back miserably and feel pain.
But a strong hand snaked around her waist and pulled her upwards.
Looking at her scrunched face and tightly clenched eyes, anticipating the pain to come because of the fall, a chuckle escape Xion's mouth. "Little tomato, open your eyes you are absolutely safe"
Xiu Mei opened her left eye to take a peek if she's really safe or not. Finding Xion in front of her eyes, a smile crawled on her lips. "Hey… Thanks. Otherwise, this was going to be an ugly fall"
"You dare to say thanks to me? Now face this…" saying this, he abruptly removes his hands from her waist, making her fall again. She gasped, but the next second he caught her back before she hits the ground. "Enjoyed the free-fall?" he teased.
"Sorry… Jokes apart…" His hands rose naturally to check her temperature, "Howz your fever now? Feeling better??.... Hm! Fever is down, but Mei you should take rest. What are you doing at the company? And where did you vanished last night? At least inform me before leaving…. You are always careless when it concerns your health. "
"Wow… hold on to your horses X. Just how many complaints you have against me?" Her eyes fluttered at the speed of his continuous pestering, which makes her chuckle at him. "Worrywort! I'm feeling much better now…. In fact a lot better. However, I forgot something in my lab last night, so I came to pick it up. And I'm heading back to mountain villa." She avoided answering the question about her whereabouts regarding last night, at least for the time being she won't tell him anything about her and Feng Jianyu.
"Good, you're feeling better now! But if you need anything then remember I'm just a call away." He reminded her sternly before continuing, "Are you driving right now? No need to drive back home, take the chopper."
Suddenly she remembers a certain someone sitting inside the car, waiting for her return. Surreptitiously she glanced at her car and felt a chill run down her spine. Because of the black sunshield, although she cannot see Jianyu's face, she could practically feel his enraged eyes focused on them. Analyzing and studying the man with whom she is talking so cordially.
And as expected, her phone rang at the very minute she looked at her car… It was Feng Jianyu calling…
She excused herself to pick the phone call….
Feng Jianyu: "If you don't return in three minutes than the pending meeting with your boss will happen right here, in the parking lot." His voice sounded cold, and she knew that he is capable to do what he said just now.
Xiu Mei "…."
'What is wrong with this man? How am I supposed to handle the situation?'
"Little Tomato, I've called the chopper…. Let's go, I'm gonna drop you to your house" Feng Jianyu heard Xion's voice calling Mei so intimately.
His brows furrowed on knowing that Xion wanted to drop Mei personally. Did he want to come to THEIR house? Feng Jianyu and Xiu Mei's house?? Their personal space? And especially on the first day of their relationship? How can Jianyu allow Xion to invade his territory?
Feng Jianyu: "Chipmunk… Last time when you fled in Phoenix Enterprises chopper I ignored it. But don't you dare to repeat that stunt this time. Come back right now, I'm taking you back in my personal chopper."
Xiu Mei "…"
