This Killer Is Easy To Deceive - 2
Chap 2 – Negotiation
Yeqing was shocked. He did not expect she would rush forward and quickly stopped but was still too slow. The sword pierced her left chest leaving a bloody wound and as the bright red blood spread on her light blue clothes, it bloomed into a bright red flower.
Staring at the red flower, he knotted his brows deeply and his face showed an indignant expression.
“Why did you save him?”
He did not understand. She had been trying to escape from the clutches of Jade Fox all along the way and he saw she had no feelings for him. When Jade Fox molested her, he immediately stopped him, and logically, she should be happy to see Jade Fox die under his sword. However, he did not expect she would desperately save the man and did not even hesitate to use her body to shield him. If he had not stopped in time, his sharp-pointed sword would have pierced through her chest and even if she did not die, she would still be seriously injured.
“I’m not saving him but he can’t die now……aiya, the pain is killing me! Why are you so impatient? Can’t you just listen to me and let me finish speaking first?”
Hua Qianqian complained while she placed a hand over the wound on her chest.
While she grumbled and complained, her actions seemed to have eased the tense killing atmosphere a lot. Moreover, her voice sounded soft and pleasant, and even if she was scolding him, it felt as though she was complaining to him. The red bloodstain spreading on her chest was similar to a bright blooming flower, setting off her fair and beautiful complexion. Her frowning and aggrieved face made her look more charming and people have always found this appearance of hers very stunning.
Yeqing calmly retracted his gaze then turned his eyes away and his indifferent face was devoid of emotions. He is a killer and a killer’s mission is only to remove the target with disregard for everything else. As he stared at Jade Fox, the cold light in his eyes rose sharply and the killing intent once again rose.
Just as his murderous intent suddenly surge, almost at the same time, she also made a move instantly. Suddenly, she stepped forward and hugged him.
This sudden hug gave him a shock again which messed up his murderous aura and simultaneously, his face turned black.
“What are you doing?! Let go!”
“It will still be the same if I kill him after I’ve killed you.”
“If you dare to kill a constable from Yamen, then you can give it a try!”
He froze. “Are you a constable?”
He was shocked again. He did not expect that she would be a female constable and despite the difference between men and women, she was so bold as to hug him.
Her beautiful face was very close and the eyes that were staring at him were extremely bright. He could see her long eyelashes strand by strand very clearly and the skin on his face felt the touch of her breath. He could even feel the two soft mounds pressing on his chest and their substantial volume.
A heat inexplicably rose in his chest and caused ripples in his calm heart. The instant he sensed danger, he hurriedly suppressed his chaotic mood.
This woman is a troublemaker and had given him trouble. Usually, he would not talk so much to anyone nor would he allow others the opportunity to interrupt his mission again and again.
He could have sent her flying away with a palm-hit or kill her directly to remove the obstacle but he knew he did not want to kill her.
Since he did not want to kill her, then he would have to knock her unconscious.
Hua Qianqian could immediately sense the thoughts running in his mind as if she is a roundworm in his belly. Before he could act, she quickly said. “Capturing him alive is valuable! I’ll arrest him and bring him to justice first. Later you can find a chance to kill him, then both of us won’t lose out. What do you think?”
His palm that was gathering internal force stopped and he stared at her speechlessly again.
Is there any constable who is like her? Not only she did not stop him from killing, but also negotiated terms with him?
No, a killer never negotiates terms with people, so he should not hesitate. Once again, he started to gather internal force in his palm.
As soon as she realized he was unmoved, she hurriedly said. “Big Brother, you don’t know how hard it is to be a secret constable. To capture this stinky fox, I spent a whole year planning and used my body as a bait…….and I just caught him.”
Yeqing’s hand froze again. She even called him ‘Big Brother’?
Staring at her pitiful expression with her beautiful eyes covered in a layer of mist, he could not help but take a deep breath. He had never seen such a constable like her in his life.
As long as he hesitates, it’s good.
Hua Qianqian was truly afraid that he would not hesitate. It had not been easy for her to finally captured this big prey, Jade Fox. Seeing that the result is about to materialize, how can she be willing to let her hard work be in vain? So she had blocked his killing move at the critical moment.
In her heart, she knew that killers are the most ruthless. Their blood is cold, their hearts are not warm but she has an intuition for the killer in front of her. This person did not seem to have any intention to hurt her. Although he is cold, he showed her mercy. Besides, if he really had the intention to kill her, he would not have hurriedly retracted his sword just now and his palm that was gathering internal force would not have stopped in mid-air. And of course, he would not have spoken so much nonsense!
Since he did not intend to hurt her, so why should she be afraid?
However, the other party may have a change of mind, so she must try to persuade him before his urge to kill arises again.
It was also the reason why she came forward to hug him. She knew that she looked good and men tend to be softhearted towards beautiful women. So she decided to use the beauty trap and preferably with the addition of the self-injury trap, so she immediately squeezed out two bean-sized teardrops and acted out a beautiful crying performance.
“The money that secret constables earn is not much. Unlike assassins like you who get a hundred taels if you kill one and get a thousand taels if you slaughter two. It’s so profitable.”
The way she said this seemed like he is a butcher who specialized in slaughtering pigs and sheep.
“Unlike us, the small secret constables, we need to look for clues and pay informants. A lot of preparation work has to be done and not all are necessarily useful. We have to endure the wind, sun, and rain and search for criminals day and night. Even if the criminal is captured and taken back, there is no guarantee that a reward will be given because if one is unlucky the superior would snatch away the credit that others have used their blood and sweat to obtain. If I don’t get the reward even after fighting for it with my life, tell me, isn’t my life miserable?”
Her eyes were like limpid autumn water, shining with tears and her long eyelashes were littered with hanging glittering teardrops that were about to fall off. She looked extremely moving.
He knew she was playing tricks, pretending to be pitiful and reminded himself not to be softhearted.
“What has that to do with me?” He asked coldly. His expression was still indifferent and there was no warmth in his eyes, not even a trace of emotion. When she hugged him, it felt like she was hugging a block of wood…….
No, even a block of wood is warmer than him! This man is like a cold sword!
Hua Qianqian became anxious. After hugging him for such a long time, she was still unable to detect any reaction from his lower body.
It seems he is not a lecherous man and since sex appeal won’t work, then use money!
“Of course it has something to do with you. Let’s discuss this. I’m willing to make less. First, let me arrest him and take him back, then after I get the reward, I’ll give you 30%!”
‘What? Do you want more than 70%? How can you cheat me? Then you can just kill me!” She said angrily and big drops of tears fell on the clothes wetting a large part of them.
She was thinking the man was indifferent but she did not know that he was actually trying very hard to pretend.
Yeqing was feeling very uptight. He never expected to meet this woman, Hua Qianqian, while on a mission. He had long known about her and this is not the first time that he sees her. It is only just that every time he sees her, he would only be watching from afar without her being aware of it.
After finding out that she is a secret constable, a bad feeling rose in his heart.
A constable and a killer, both stand on opposing sides and it is already an exception for him not to kill her. Moreover, he had hesitated because of her which violated the taboos of a killer. Now this woman is hugging him tightly and crying as her teardrops soaked into his clothes resulting in a patch of wet stain. Although he was expressionless, the palm holding the sword tightened and relaxed repeatedly.
He was feeling agitated with her but he did not push her away and to get rid of this troublemaker as soon as possible, he could only compromise.
“Alright, I won’t kill him now.”
The little delicate face in his arms lifted with tears glistening on her eyelashes and she looked at him in surprise.
“Really? You won’t kill him?” She felt a little incredulous. She thought she had to put in more effort but he agreed too quickly and it made her feel not accustomed to it.
The stunning face looked as beautiful as a flower and it nearly blinded him. It silently threw his mind into confusion again and in order to suppress his impetuosity, he deliberately displayed a colder expression.
“Don’t believe?” His tone sounded very dangerous.
“Yes, yes, yes! I believe you, thank you! You’re so nice!”
She broke into a smile and her beautiful eyes were gleaming. Her curved lips looked extremely lovely and her tearful smile was more moving than a flower sprinkled with rain and dew in early spring.
It is said that women are more delicate than flowers and it refers to a woman like her who is a coquettish little woman without the tough stance of a constable.
He could even see his reflection in her beautiful clear eyes. They were filled with his figure and it threw his mind into chaos. Suddenly, he felt a certain part of his lower abdomen about to stir and he quickly sucked in a deep breath.
In her heart, Hua Qianqian exclaimed with a ‘Yi’…….and noticed his ears were turning red.
She looked at him suspiciously. The man’s expression was still cold and emotionless which made it difficult to detect his mood fluctuations. She thought it would take a lot of effort to convince him and she was even prepared for failure. However, she did not expect that with just a hug and a cry, he would actually agree and his ears seemed to be turning redder and redder. If she had not gotten close to him, it would indeed be difficult to find out.
Is he blushing?
She felt her thought was a bit exaggerated.
How can a person blush with only his ears turning red?
Can it be he is pretending to be fine on the surface but in fact, his heart is feeling excited and surging with emotions?
Although she had hugged him for such a long time, the place in his lower abdomen had not reared its head yet. It made her doubtful of her own charms but this man did not push her away……
That means this man has a favorable impression of her, right?
