Epilogue 5 – The Top Student and The Bookworm (Part 8/17)

The 26th day of the lunar calendar.

At a dormitory within the student hostels of the Imperial Academy.

Chen Lan frowned as he closed the cover of his laptop on the table. He suddenly noticed that he’d forgotten something — to buy train tickets.

Looks like I have no choice but to choose a different method of transport. Chen Lan thought for a moment before he tossed such a trivial matter to the back of his mind and walked out of the dormitory.

There was a very imposing hummer parked outside the hostel, and it had the insignia of the military on it. If it were during any other ordinary day when classes were being held, then just this hummer alone would be sufficient to arouse fervor in many male students who were military enthusiasts.

But all the students were on leave to return home and celebrate the new year, so no one paid any attention to the hummer.

The window of the hummer was winded down when Chen Lan appeared here, and then a gorgeous face that was on the wild side emerged from within the hummer. She waved at Chen Lan from afar and said, “Handsome!”

It was naturally Liang Liang who was within the hummer.

Chen Lan walked over and asked, “Do you need something?”

Liang Liang grinned and said, “Can I buy you a drink?”

Chen Lan thought for a moment and said, “Let me make a phone call.”

He withdrew his phone as he spoke and made a call, and he spoke for a moment before he ended the call. He said, “Alright, but you have to do something for me.”

Liang Liang’s beautiful eyes lit up, and she seemed to be very interested in it, “Oh? Tell me what it is. I won’t do things like murder and forcefully taking women from good families, but I’ll do everything else. Even if you ask me to get a room and have a ‘friendly discussion’ with you, I might even be able to barely agree if you say the word.”

She even shot Chen Lan a wink as she spoke, and her voice was low and alluring. Coupled with her military uniform, hot and curvy slender body, and charming face that was filled with wild beauty. She was able to arouse the desire in the hearts of any man.

After all, she was a female military officer, and she was even an extremely gorgeous one who possessed a sense of wild beauty. She was like an icy cold rose that was inviting him for a romp, so how could any man endure such temptation?

But it just so happened that Chen Lan remained completely indifferent towards it. He seemed to have completely overlooked the teasing and alluring tone in her words, and he just spoke casually, “I forgot to buy a train ticket, so I might not be able to return home in time for new year’s eve. Help me resolve this problem.”

Bang!

Liang Liang smashed her fist against the steering wheel, and then she rubbed her forehead and groaned. “Train tickets! I was fucking unable to compare to a train ticket! Big Brother, I really have nothing further to say about you.”

When she spoke up to this point, she bit her red and plump lip, and her eyes glowed as she revealed a charming smile, “But don’t refuse for now. You can always come looking for me when you want to in the future.”

Chen Lan frowned, “I’ll be leaving if you continue acting like this.”

Liang Liang chuckled, “Alright, alright. Get on quickly. Just leave such a trivial matter to me.”

Only then did Chen Lan get in the hummer.

Bang!

Liang Liang slammed her foot against the pedal, and the hummer roared like a wild beast while smoke sprayed out from its exhaust before it shot out of the campus.

“You called your girlfriend just now?” Liang Liang spoke casually. She seemed very wild and rugged when she drove. She chewed on gum while she had a cigarette in one hand and the steering wheel in the other. Moreover, she’d stomped the pedal completely down, and she simply seemed as if she wished for nothing more than to press it through the bottom of the hummer.

A hummer sped through the streets that extended in all directions, and it ran countless red lights and created an extremely unbridled sight.

Fortunately, it was the end of the year, so there were very few cars along the road, otherwise, such actions would simply be no different than courting death.

Chen Lan nodded, and then he frowned, “Can you not smoke?”

Liang Liang whistled as she flicked away the remaining half of her cigarette, and she said, “Alright handsome, I’ll do as you wish.”

Chen Lan thought for a moment and said, “Last night….”

Liang Liang immediately interrupted him and said, “I forgot everything that happened last night. Don’t ask me because I don’t know anything.”

Chen Lan has no choice but to drop the matter, and he said, “Then why have you come looking for me today?”

Liang Liang smiled and said, “It’s new years’ time, so I have to buy a handsome man like you a drink. I didn’t know that you were in the capital before this, but since I know now, then I naturally have to play the host.”

“Oh,” said Chen Lan, and then he didn’t speak anymore. He didn’t even try to engage in perfunctory small talk, and it made him seem very boring.

Liang Liang didn’t mind it at all. Of course, if it was any other person, then she would have kicked him out a long time ago.

But in the same way, if it wasn’t Chen Lan, then it was impossible for her to allow anyone else in her car. After all, not a single young man of the influential and wealthy families had entered this car, and it was the same even for Liang Liang’s siblings. Chen Lan was the only exception.

An hour later, they arrived at the most bustling entertainment strip in the capital. Even though it was only dusk now, the strip was covered in clamorous noise. Men and women who’d come in search of entertainment had flocked over, and all sorts of luxury cars were parked all over the street.

This strip was very famous, and it was renowned even throughout the entire Cathay Empire. Countless descendants of rich families and similar figures gathered here in search of entertainment every single day, and there were even some influential officials who were fond of inviting their friends for a meeting to discuss business here.

It was even to the extent that one could even see some singers, film stars, and big shots who could usually only be seen on the big screen.

In the eyes of ordinary people, the money they accumulated for their entire lifetimes might not even be able to compare with the money these wealthy people spent on a single night.

This strip could really be considered a money pit, and it was extremely great extravagance for an ordinary person to occasionally experience what it has to offer.

On the other hand, those who frequent the strip were definitely the rich and powerful.

After that roaring hummer arrived at the bustling entertainment strip, it still didn’t slow down at all. It horrified the pedestrians and other cars to the point of avoiding it in panic, and there was naturally no lack of curses throughout the incident.

However, when they caught sight of a special mark on that hummer and the insignia of the military, all the curses vanished in succession while even a wisp of envy appeared on their faces.

They were clearly aware why the owner of that hummer dared to act in such an unbridled manner, and that was exactly why they felt envious.

It was a rank and authority that many of them would never be able to reach.

The hummer sped forward before finally screeching to a stop as it forcefully spun into a parking spot, and it even pushed aside the yellow Lamborghini that was parked in the adjacent spot.

“You….” The young man who was working as the valet there was in panic, and he was just about to curse. However, his entire body shivered when he saw that hummer clearly, and then he forcefully swallowed the curses he was about to spew. Moreover, he even revealed a respectful and flattering expression instead.

After she got out of her car, Liang Liang didn’t even spare a single glance at anything, and she just led Chen Lan directly towards the Black Hibiscus Club which was right opposite from where she’d parked.

She was a really unique woman. Because she was wearing her military uniform even when she’d come to a club to enjoy herself, so she seemed rather strange and drew the attention of many.

However, Liang Liang seemed as if she was accustomed to all of this. She just pointed at the brilliantly illuminated signboard of the Black Hibiscus Club as she spoke, “This club isn’t bad. It was even able to invite some top-rate stars to put on shows here, and even the service and bargirls are one of the best here. However, not just anyone can enter this club.”

Chen Lan nodded, yet he still seemed calm and composed as before.

“Come, a very famous female star seems to have come here to put on a show today. I think she was called Yun something Wei.” Liang Liang grinned and said, “I heard that some of those profligate young masters weren’t able to restrain themselves anymore, and they intend to do their thing tonight and conquer that national beauty. I can help introduce you if you’re interested, and I won’t say a thing even if you force yourself on her.”

Chen Lan frowned yet didn’t say a word.

As she spoke, both of them were led in by one of the waiters and entered Black Hibiscus without encountering any obstruction.
