Chapter 125 | I just want to be a salted fish quietly

Are you eating a lemon?

The taste of each dish is very good. Both Zhuang Tong and Lin Xian are very satisfied.

Not to mention Tang Ping, who did not say a word the whole time and just kept his head down while eating.

After eating, Tang Ping got up, bid goodbye, and then left.

After Lin Xian and Zhuang Tong took a hot bath, they hugged each other to sleep.

Both are exhausted and really didn’t have the urge and energy to do other things.


The next day, Lin Xian slowly turned on his phone to look at the time only to find out that it was already five o’clock in the afternoon.

Did they sleep for more than ten hours?

Lin Xian did some stretching and all the joints in his body crackled.

There are also several missed calls on his phone, all from Zhang Mengyao.

Lin Xian sat at the bedside and dialed Zhang Mengyao.

The call was quickly connected and Zhang Mengyao’s sullen voice came from the other end: “Lin Xian, what are you doing? You’re not answering your phone, and I did not find you when I went to Jincai!”

”I just woke up! Maybe I was deep asleep, so I did not hear my phone ringing.” Lin Xian rubbed his face and replied.

”You…last night…”

Lin Xian curled his lips and said, “What are you thinking about? I had a flight last night and so I didn’t go to bed to sleep comfortably until five o’clock in the morning.”

”You were in a plane? Where are you now?” Zhang Mengyao was taken aback and asked.


”What are you doing in Yangcheng?”

Zhang Mengyao had just broken through her psychological shackles the day before yesterday, and she wants to be with Lin Xian every time. She even went to Jincai to look for him. But she did not expect this bastard to run to Yangcheng without saying a word.

Lin Xian explained: “Do you remember the last time we ate in Shanghai, about Master Liao Jie? I commissioned a private detective company to find him, so I went here to have a look if he really is here.”

”Are you really looking for him?” Zhang Mengyao was a little speechless

She thought that Lin Xian wasn’t serious when he talked about it last time.

But she didn’t expect that he actually entrusted professionals to look for him and actually find him.

And it is just so he could eat the authentic yellow croaker?!

What the…

Zhang Mengyao could not resist the urge to complain and asked casually: “Then, when are you coming back?”

”Why? Do you miss me?” Lin Xian smiled slightly.

“Why would I miss you? Don’t flatter yourself!”

Zhang Mengyao snorted and then asked: “Are you alone?”

”I came with Zhuang Tong.”

”It seems that you really like that little lover of yours very much and take her wherever you go!”

Lin Xian felt the jealousy in Zhang Mengyao’s tone so he asked jokingly: “Zhang Mengyao, are you eating a lemon right now?”

”Lemon? No!” Zhang Mengyao answered confusedly.

”Impossible! I can smell sourness through the phone!”

”Lin Xian!”

Zhang Mengyao said angrily: “You just wait until you see this old lady again. I shall hit you to death!”

Lin Xian responded in a lazy manner: “Don’t just talk about hitting me all the time. Do more meaningful things, like maybe eating a lollipop so you can practice your skills!”


Zhang Mengyao cursed him and then suddenly asked in a soft voice: “Then, when will you be back?”

Lin Xian smiled and said: “Maybe in two days. Wait for me obediently!”

”Who is waiting for you?!”

After talking more to Lin Xian, she hung up the phone directly.

”Dear? Who is it?”

At this moment, Zhuang Tong was awakened and asked who he was talking to over the phone.

”I was talking to Zhang Mengyao.”

Lin Xian put down the phone, squeezed her small face, and said, “It is already five o’clock in the afternoon. It’s time we get up.”


Zhuang Tong nodded, sat up slowly, and then stretched.

Her graceful figure is greatly evident.

Seeing this, Lin Xian became suddenly excited and then said: “Shall we take a bath together?”

Zhuang Tong smiled and agreed: ”Hehe, okay!”


When they finished and walked out of the bathroom, it was already seven o’clock in the evening.

You can see the street outside through the floor-to-ceiling glass of the room.

The night lights are already on.

Zhuang Tong took out the suit from the suitcase and said: “Dear, you should wear this suit today!”

Thinking of the cold wind when they walked out of the bathroom last night, Lin Xian nodded.

Lin Xian put on the suit and Zhuang Tong helped him with his tie.

After looking at Lin Xian a few times from top to bottom, Zhuang Tong couldn’t help but say, “You look so handsome in the suit!”

Lin Xian put his arms on his waist and asked jokingly: “How how handsome?”

Zhuang Tong smiled and replied: “It’s like beautiful girls would take the initiative to get a room with you by just hooking your fingers!”

As soon as they got dressed, the two held hands as they walked out of the room leisurely.

Lin Xian wants to maintain his leisurely life.

Even if he went here to fulfill his task, he still doesn’t want to rush things or otherwise.

In his opinion, enjoying life shall come first above all else.

The Chinese restaurant in the Shangri-La Hotel of Yangcheng specializes in Cantonese cuisine. The two seemed inseparable as they walked to the Summer Palace Chinese restaurant on the second floor.

They felt like the meal they ate previously was just an early snack and not a regular meal.

They were led by the waiter as they chose a position by the window and then sat down.

Lin Xian handed the menu to Zhuang Tong and motioned her to order for them.

Their appetite is not too big so they ordered three dishes, steamed turbot, Chicken with shallots, and Yangcheng’s local delicacy, assorted barbecue meat.

As for the staple food, Lin Xian did not ask for rice but some stir-fried noodles with beef.

The dish is very simple but it can best evaluate the skills of a Cantonese chef.

There is no exaggeration to say that you would know whether a Cantonese chef is good or otherwise if he can make stir-fried noodles with beef

Soon, the dishes were served.

Lin Xian went on to taste the steamed turbot first.

The dish is quite satisfactory. The ingredients are fresh and so the dish tasted extremely delicious.

What surprised Lin Xian the most was the assorted barbecue meat.

Everything about it including the sauce was very good.

As for the staple food, the stir-fried noodles with beef, the taste disappointed Lin Xian.

Maybe he set his expectations way too high.

The taste was okay, but it was too much greasy after a few bites.

The total was less than 1,000 which is definitely a good deal

After eating, Zhuang Tong smiled and asked, “Are we off to meet the person you were looking for?”

Lin Xian nodded and said, “Okay, let’s take a look at him first.”

Based on Tang Ping’s descriptions of his encounters with Liao Jie last night, Lin Xian had a hunch that this trip to Yangcheng might not be successful.

But he is not disappointed, and his mentality remained the same.

It’s better if he can finish the task. But if he can’t, then he will just take it as touring Yangcheng with Zhuang Tong.

Xian sat on the sofa of the hotel lobby and made a call to Tang Ping.

”Mr. Lin, you’re awake?”

Lin Xian asked, “Where are you now?”

”I am eating dinner.”

Lin Xian said: “After eating, come to Shangri-La Hotel and take me to the place where Liao Jie works.”

”Okay Mr. Lin. I’ll be there very soon!” Tang Ping then hung up the phone.

Half an hour later, Tang Ping walked into the hotel, found Lin Xian, and said apologetically: “Mr. Lin, I am very sorry. I caught up in traffic.”

Lin Xian waved his hand and said, “It’s okay. Let’s go!”
