Chapter 261 You Don’t Mind It Being Dirty As Well
“They’re just being polite, it’s not like they’re asking you to report it.”
Such messages surface into the light, only a small number of people are aware of it.
were not received in Apthon before. Every city has its dark secrets, as long as it doesn’t
However, a few incidents recently occurred in Apthon, particularly a heinous act where a woman was openly assaulted, and some kind of criminal force was involved.
This incident had gained nationwide attention, resulting in heightened vigilance. This hotel seemed to be boldly flouting the law.
Lucian furrowed his brows. His stern gaze was fixated on Calista. In this moment, the authority and pressure of one in power were vividly displayed by Lucian.
“If I can investigate, surely others can as well. If they dare to do something like this, they certainly have
Calista knew this. Otherwise, she wouldn’t have changed her SIM card before making the call. However, she must’ve been too content with her life, as she had grown complacent.
She forgot to change her SIM card back after she made the call.
As Lucian saw her remaining silent, he thought she was aggrieved because she thought he was scolding her. What David said crossed his mind. He told him that women need to be coaxed, not scolded.
Lucian pressed the tip of his tongue against his cheek.
“If you come across these things next time, you don’t have to intervene. Just tell me and let me handle it.”
Calista was already preparing to sleep. All the bright lights in the room were switched off, leaving only a faint strip of yellow light from the gap in the ceiling
The darkness was just right, creating an atmosphere of hazy ambiguity. A fleeting glance in this
environment could ignite passionate desires.
Calista couldn’t help but think that this place, somehow associated with such deeds, made her feel like
she was drugged.
How else could she explain why Lucian, at this moment, seemed to shimmer, much like when he rescued.
her from danger? She hesitated for a moment.
“I do have something that I’d like to ask for your help with. As an exchange, I can comply with your
Just as Lucian was about to say something, Calista added, “Except for relationship–related matters.”
He responded with a wry smile as he saw how desperate she was to cut all ties with him.
“Don’t overestimate yourself. Even if I’m pursuing you now, I won’t lower my standards as well. I won’t stoop to such indecent tactics for a favor.”
Unlike that certain schemer, Paul, who shamelessly persisted despite countless rejections Calista pretended to not hear him and proceeded to discuss the matter at hand.
It wasn’t very pleasant as they even got into an argument. Finally, Lucian stated coldly that he’d consider,
and that drew the end of the discussion.
Calista wasn’t very pleasant as things didn’t end like she expected. She shooed Lucian away without any
“Now that we’re done with the discussion, you can go.”
“Even burning bridges takes time, but here you are setting the fire before you even cross the bridge. Aren’t
you worried that I’ll decline right away?”
Calista thought for a while and corrected him.
“You might be wrong about one thing. I told you not because I wanted to cooperate with you. Whether you accept wouldn’t faze my decision. You’re just one of my options for safety. I can also find someone else, except that the safety level will be lower.”
She had never doubted that he was the most trustworthy in terms of keeping her safe. After all, he was always to her rescue whenever she was in danger.
Lucian tightened his lips.
He said stiffly, “Who are you going to find? Paul?
Calista remained silent.
“Him? I think by the time he comes to your rescue, you’d be long gone. I don’t know whether you’re dumb
or you just have bad taste.
Calista’s temple throbbed as she clenched her fists. Even thinking of Lucian as her savior couldn’t suppress her boiling emotions. It’s unbearable!
She glanced at him from the corner of her eye, being extremely defensive, and said, “How dare you speak so highly of yourself? Even if we fall out, Paul mostly praises me in front of me. And you? You’re always.
Lucian narrowed his eyes as he looked at the defiant Calista before him.
“So you’re picking a fight with me over Paul?”
“Are you planning to do something if I said yes?”
Lucian’s rage faded in an instant. It was probably due to him being overly angered. He smiled at Calista.
“Calista, you dare to provoke me like that because you knew I loved you, and I won’t do anything to you.”
He got down from the canopy bed.
“I won’t lay a finger on you. But for a man to do something to a woman, there are plenty of ways. You haven’t looked through this room thoroughly during your stay, haven’t you? Come, let me show you something interesting.”
“I don’t need that.”
Although she had no idea what he meant by interesting, she knew it probably wasn’t something go
“We are done with our discussion. You can get going now.”
Lucian wrapped his arms around Calista’s shoulder and forced her to the bedside.
“Do you think I can still get out at this point?”
If he just said that, Calista wouldn’t end up thinking about something else. She would think that he’s talking about the cops outside.
But as he spoke, he took down a decorative painting near the bed. Earlier on, she thought the position of
the painting was quite strange.
Usually, paintings were hung above the bed. However, this painting was just within a hand’s reach. When the painting was revealed, a secret door, which was around the same size as the painting, was revealed.
Lucian pressed on it gently. The door opened and a variety of sex toys were revealed. Calista was at a
loss for words.
Lucian simply took one and played with it. The nude toy slid to and fro in his slender fingers. He was playing with it swiftly. When the toy moved, its plastic packaging made a rustling sound.
After he showed the usage of the toy to Calista, he raised his eyebrows at her.
“Do you wanna try?
Calista’s face was as hot as boiling water. She could no longer hold back and cursed at Lucian.
“Try my foot! Get the hell out of here! You don’t even mind it being dirty, huh?”
For any woman, such a situation would have been infuriating.
“These are all disposable items. Once opened, they’re considered purchased. Even if they’re not taken away, the cleaners would throw them out as well. So, do you wanna try?” He extended the toy toward her, the tip of it almost touching her face. “It seems quite fun.”
Calista was so outraged that she was on the verge of fainting
“It seems like you’ve learned quite a lot from that woman. This secret door is so discreet. Unless an
insider told you, you’d never discover it.”
Who would think of removing a hotel painting?
It was a habit of Lucian to check his room thoroughly during his every stay in a hotel to ensure there weren’t any hidden cameras. He’d also want to check for any lurking dangers.
He had already discovered this hidden door last night. As for that woman, he had already kicked her out
of the room once he stepped out of the bathroom.
Calista was boiling with rage. How she wished she could bash his head open!
On the other hand, Lucian kept his composure. He even took off the packaging and held it in his hand. Hel flipped it back and forth as if he was just treating it as a toy.
There wasn’t a trace of indecency in his expression.
“Don’t be jealous. I haven’t tried it yet, that’s why I’m curious.”
