Chapter 2058: Showering Compliment
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
She wanted to celebrate the holiday with her family and spend more time with the twins to make up for the time she had been busy with work.
Early this morning, the ringing sound of her phone startled her awake.
The drowsy woman fumbled around the bed for her phone and answered the call, only to hear her brother’s mesmerizing yet sexy voice come from the other end.
“Are you free today, sis?”
She was wide awake now. “Xiao Jie?”
Youyou realized that his uncle had been dropping by in the country a lot more frequently these days.
One must know that Gong Jie, as the Hurricane Group’s chief commander, was mainly responsible for the affairs on the North American market. This was why he was swamped with work most of the time. What was more; the arms market was particularly popular recently, and this led to the growing number of orders with each passing day. Half of his time now was usually spent on traveling and negotiating deals.
His job scope was mainly about dealing with contracts and order forms and selling his family’s firearms at high prices to buyers.
The organization’s military factories, which were set up in remote areas, could be found domestically and internationally. Many of those responsible for supplying arms to the North American market were residing in the US.
Once the contract was signed and the deposit was received, he would lead his team of mercenaries to load the goods on a cargo ship and then safely bring them to their destination.
That was what he mostly did in his line of work.
He could be elegantly lounging in the president’s office to negotiate business deals the day prior, but the next day, he might be off to a specific war zone, braving the battlefield to deliver firearms to the frontline.
He usually went on vacation only when he had spare time before, but things were different now.
He would fly back to the country and pester his sister to go out on a date with him at the first chance he got.
Yun Shishi was very curious about her brother’s occupation. Currently, all she knew was that he owned a company and had a property under his name. She knew absolutely nothing about what he exactly did for a living, and he refrained from mentioning it to her, too.
She spotted his car parked at the entrance as soon as she left the house. He was keeping a low-profile today and had specifically chosen to drive a Mercedes-Benz SUV, which had received bulletproof treatment and had its windows tinted with black film. With the windows rolled up, it was impossible for one to see who was in the car from the outside.
It suddenly hit her that that chap had driven a very flashy convertible sports car the last time they were out together, so she was surprised to find him driving such an inconspicuous vehicle this time.
The reason he did so was actually to throw the spies his father had sent off his trail.
She opened the car door to the passenger seat to find him, with a hand on the steering wheel, tilting his body to face her with a bright smile on his face.
He was not dressed in white for once, much to her surprise.
Instead, he was dressed in a rare, all-black ensemble—sweater, trousers, boots, and sunglasses. He looked especially dashing and aloof at first glance.
It turned out that white was not the only color that suited him, for a trace of nobility and elegance still seeped through his arrogant demeanor despite being dressed in black.
The woman closed the door after she got in the car.
Gong Jie looked at her deeply before suddenly unbuckling his seatbelt to lean over to her side. He placed a gentle peck on her glabella as he helped her buckle up. His hand reached out to stroke her silky hair, his eyes looking especially tender as he did so.
“You’re looking gorgeous today.”
She was drunk on that sweet compliment; a furious shade of red crept up her face. Somehow, even though that compliment came from her brother, it made her heart race in excitement just like how a young teen in love would feel!
She teasingly replied, “Whoa! You’re showering compliments on me as soon as I got in your car. Spill it; do you have a favor to ask me?”
He was dumbfounded by what she thought of him.
