Chapter 141: You Smell Good Too
Li Hanchen looked at Mu Sheng with his deep eyes. He looked a little hurt as he stepped back slightly. “Sorry.”
Now Mu Sheng felt guilty. Li Hanchen had carried her all the way down and helped her put on her seat belt. Instead, she made him think that she did not like his smell.
Mu Sheng pulled Li Hanchen’s arm closer. “I don’t have a problem with your smell. You smell good.”
“Really?” Li Hanchen’s eyes lit up. They were so close that Li Hanchen’s warm breath tickled Mu Sheng’s ear and it instantly turned red. “What do you mean?”
Mu Sheng went quiet. She never had such close contact with another human being, so she felt uneasy. “Erm… you smell like pine in winter after a snowfall.”
She was speaking the truth. She always felt that Li Hanchen resembled a pine standing in the snow. He had a cool and indomitable aura.
Li Hanchen had never seen Mu Sheng act this way before. He smiled a little when he heard what she said. When he noticed her ears blushing, he stopped teasing her and got out of the car. “That’s my perfume. If you like it, I can give you a bottle when we get back.”
The moment Li Hanchen got out of the car, the atmosphere finally felt less intense. The warmth on Mu Sheng’s face finally dissipated. “No, thanks.”
In her past life, she never used perfume as it might get into the way of research.
Li Hanchen went to the driver’s seat and sat down beside her. “Then again, you don’t need perfume since you already smell good.”
If anyone else attempted to say this to Mu Sheng, it would have come off frivolous. Instead, Li Hanchen looked completely natural as though he was merely stating the truth. It didn’t sound inappropriate at all.
However, Mu Sheng didn’t want to go on with this strange subject, so she said, “I am hungry.”
It was already 1:00 pm. She usually ate at 12:00 pm, but an hour had passed, so she felt hungry.
Li Hanchen sped up. “Let’s go back now.”
By the time they made it back to the villa, they discovered the two-story residence razed to the ground. There were broken bricks and stones everywhere. Dust floated in the huge empty space. All the plants in the garden were badly damaged.
Auntie Lin stood beside the pillar angrily. The moment she saw Li Hanchen, she ran over to him. “Young Master.”
Li Hanchen got off the car to see the rubble. “What happened?”
“Shortly after you left in the morning, some construction workers came over. They said that the building was against safety standards and wanted to demolish it. I tried to call you, but there was no signal,” said Auntie Lin as she sighed. “I only managed to save your computers. The rest of your belongings got destroyed when they demolished the place.”
A black car pulled up by the roadside and Qin Kai came over. “Li Ming was behind it.”
Li Hanchen remained completely calm. He turned and said, “Why don’t you send Auntie Lin to the villa in the city. I have something to handle.”
Mu Sheng felt Li Ming was the culprit as well as she sat in the front passenger seat.
Considering Li Ming’s personality, if Li An refused to go home, he would use extreme methods to force Li Hanchen and Li An to do it.
Demolition was probably just the first step in his series of plans.
Li Hanchen got into the car and said, “Let me take you out for lunch first.”
