"Uncle Ghost….For the outside world, I'll always be your daughter and behave like one. Those four years I spend with you were beautiful, our relation will give hope to millions of other orphans. But this father-daughter relationship will just be by name. However you can talk to me anytime, once in a while, we can even do video chat" Xiu Mei passed the medicines and watches him swallow them one by one with water.
He suddenly smiled at her, "I'm happy that at least in front of the outside world we'll be called father-daughter. And yes, I'll talk to you almost daily and once in a while I'll drop by at your home to meet you. Is this fine?" He gave a content smile when she nodded. He wanted to kiss her forehead but controlled the urge, "Go on! I wish you luck, happiness, health, success, and love. Today, tomorrow and forever.
Feng Jianyu immediately grabbed the blanket from the bed and stride towards her, wrapping her from behind, "It looks like if I'm not allowed you won't take care of yourself. Huh?"
He hugged her from behind placing a kiss at her cheek but the very second his brows furrowed tasting something wet salty against his lips. "Crying?" Turning her instantly he looked at her eyes, she was a crying mess.
"M…. " Before he could ask something she hugged him, melting into his arms while resting her head on his chest. "I want to go home…" Without replying he picked her up and sat down on the nearest couch.
He kissed her eyes in the hope that tears will stop coming and laughed when she puckered her lips thinking he would kiss here also. When the kiss didn't come she opened her eyes only to see him watching her with a teasing smile.
She gave him a disheartened look and he took the opportunity to pull her cheeks as he asked, "I have heard someone saying that I'm her home! Was she lying at that time?"
"Don't trick me. I'm talking about leaving this country. Everything is settled, North City is safe, I got to know about Yang's, Kongs are exposed, and Uncle Ghost got his identity back. Nothing is left for me to do, let's leave early morning"
"We are leaving the day after tomorrow, in the evening"
She looked up dejectedly and requested, "Can we leave tomorrow? Please"
"No! We have to go somewhere tomorrow. It's urgent and requires both our presence" He placed the finger on her lips when she tried to say something, "No questions! No objections!"
"Fine! But no more delays"
He tightened her in his embrace, and whispered before coaxing her to sleep, "No more delays love, no more…."
"Amazing, mind-blowing, thrilling, exciting, awe-inspiring….. I can read these newspapers a hundred times without getting bored" Holding a big bundle of different newspapers that could be available in Country B, he showed it to everyone.
The newspapers headlined Kong Da and his family's dirty deeds in bold letters the next day. Even the international publishing houses covered the incident of Infinity Software and North City. Human rights commission heavily criticized them and demanded capital punishment from the government.
Foreign countries whose citizens were kidnapped immediately ordered their diplomats to send as much help as possible and bring them back.
North City's videos were shared 46 million times on social media within an hour of releasing, breaking all the records. Other than that another video that reached close to this record was of a masked woman demonstrating the most advanced droid ever created, Orange with 44 million shares.
The business section discussed the issue of ethics, malpractices in business and about cheating and copyright.
If the political circle was interested in North City and Kong's news, the corporate circle was inclined towards Infinity Software's reveal and the famous droid- Orange.
R-Tech and Feng Corporation's collaboration was welcomed with both hands and investors lined up to invest their money in these two companies. Their shares gave gap-up opening as soon as the stock market opened and it keeps climbing up breaking the upper circuit with heavy volume.
"Junjie… this news will rule the headline for a week at least. So calm down and let me concentrate" Feng Jin said while trying to read the design of a gun that he gave to Orange, asking for a suggestion.
He looked up at Orange in surprise who modified the design to perfection after scanning all the guns ever made in history and accessing their pros and cons and applying it to the new design.
"Don't fanboy Orange…. Both of you…. Mei is not going to give him to anyone" Wang Shi walked in and sat down across Feng Jianyu who was leisurely going through some documents, leaving a signature at the end.
Something is off…
Where is Mei?
Feng Jianyu answered Wang Shi's questionable gaze by pointing at the balcony where she was sitting alone. With legs rested at the railing she was slouched on the sofa, typing something on phone seems like chatting with someone.
BDSM_queen: [C'mon doll, I'll spank your ass if you sulk any more. It's just a matter of one day; tomorrow you are anyway going back]
Xiu Mei: [We could have left today also. He is not doing anything, just sitting ideal eating apple watching Junjie and Jin taking advantage of my droid]
BDSM_queen: [You said that an hour ago too. I'm sure he is not eating apple anymore]
Xiu Mei: [Duh! Does it matter?]
BDSM_queen: [Of course it matters. It's an ideal opportunity to do something….. You know what I mean. Right? Go my tigress, kick his brothers out, jump on your man, and take over the entire penthouse. Break the furniture, spread your love everywhere….."
Xiu Mei: [Can you please not corrupt my mind?]
BDSM_queen: [What corruption? Shut up! It looks like you are not going to do anything. It's good I took some action on your behalf]
'Ding Dong' Xiu Mei heard the door bell ring but ignored it.
Xiu Mei: [What do you mean? What action? What have you done? He is my man. And BTW, why have we deviated from the topic?"
BDSM_queen: [Good bye, doll. All the best]
Xiu Mei: [Hold on! Wait]
Xiu Mei: [Come back. NOW]
Xiu Mei: [Grrrrrrrr…]
She craned her neck to see who came but instead saw the brothers looking at a box with widened eyes.
