Chapter 1603: The Mark of Death
Nalan Chunbo paused when Wen Shan stopped. He made himself stop one meter away from Wen Shan.
“I hate it the most when people lie to me,” Wen Shan hissed through gritted teeth. Despite how they were still lovey-dovey yesterday, she was actually capable of unleashing her anger at him.
Nalan Chunbo frowned. “I was caught in between a rock and a hard place, and I had no choice but to continue on the same path.”
That idiom was correctly placed.
” … ” Wen Shan was speechless.
Had a good grasp on the language now, no?
“Do you know what else is eleven-eleven known as?” Wen Shan suddenly asked.
Nalan Chunbo felt that it was better if he did not answer this question—it felt like a pit that was waiting for him to jump into.
“Singles’ Day. Congratulations, today’s your day too.” After Wen Shan said that, she left without looking back.
The wind in November was a little chilly.
Nalan Chunbo stood at the spot where the wind blew and felt the cold piercing into him. There were many couples around him because everyone single was attached to their mobile phones as they shopped madly. They would not come out to chow on dog food.
At this instant, he seemed to have returned to this status.
Wen Shan jumped on the public bus and went home. Nalan Chunbo went to get his car.
Meanwhile, Ye Yuwei had just picked up her son. Now that Ye Xixi was with her brother, she was finally willing to get off her mother’s embrace and play with her brother. Ye Yuwei could also rest for a while.
Ye Xicheng was pounced on by his younger sister. However, since he felt sorry for his sick sister, he allowed his sister to lean her rather chubby body on his and tell him how much she missed her elder brother, even though they had only been separated for less than four hours.
Ye Yuwei shook her hand, retrieved her phone, and checked the notifications in her phone. She wondered how the two of them were doing now.
After giving it some thought, Ye Yuwei called Nalan Chunbo. Nalan Chunbo picked up the call swiftly. Ye Yuwei was about to ask the driver to slow down, but she swallowed her words after glancing at her son.
“So, have you resumed your status as a Golden Bachelor today?” Ye Yuwei asked with a small smile. The person on the other end of the line sighed, as expected.
“She said that she hates it most when people lie to her.”
“No woman would wish for the man she likes to lie to her. I’ve already told you this before and that you should’ve shed your disguise earlier,” Ye Yuwei answered in a helpless tone.
“Actually, I wanted to explain that to her when we exited Gu Juexi’s office the other day, but we bumped into her ex-classmate.” Nalan Chunbo was a little depressed. “I couldn’t say it out loud after that encounter.”
Ye Yuwei could roughly understand how depressed her big brother felt—He was about to explain but he got interrupted. It would be difficult for him to bring the topic up again afterward. She could totally relate to this feeling.
“So, how many disguises have you taken off?” Ye Yuwei asked tentatively. She remembered that he still had a disguise under the name ‘Lil Brother’.
Nalan Chunbo felt a pang of heartache again when Ye Yuwei asked this question. He had yet to shed that disguise yet.
“Wen Shan is not an unreasonable girl. Go and talk to her properly. She’ll listen to you,” Ye Yuwei tried to persuade him.
The bus in front of him kept stopping and going. Wen Shan did not get off the bus. It seemed like she was going back to her house.
They had originally agreed to go to her house tomorrow. Now, it seemed like Wen Shan would not be bringing him along.
This time, he was not just shedding off a layer of disguise. Instead, he was shedding off a layer of his skin.
After Nalan Chunbo ended the call with Ye Yuwei, a message appeared on his phone.
[So, who’s Lil Brother?]
Nalan Chunbo was at a loss for words. “…”
He had seen the mark of death.
 It is a famous Mandarin Internet slang used when experiencing Public Display of Affection(PDA) from couples. Single people are called ‘single dogs’, thus people who are in relationships are said to be handing out dog food to these single dogs during PDA.
