Song Yifan was not surprised at all that Li Sicheng knew about his schedule . With Li Sicheng’s influence, he could easily achieve that . Song Yifan said, “I’m feeling a bit down recently, so a vacation is called for . ”
“Is that right…” Li Sicheng looked at him with a half smile, through which Song Yifan could clearly see sarcasm .
Sheng Ximing quickly said, “We are going to sail over to the island . Do you want to join us?”
“Yes, there are only two other friends with us . If we could find more company, it should be more fun,” suggested Song Yifan .
“Yes, we are going fishing and making some barbecue . Everything is ready . Join us?” Sheng Ximing looked at Captain Li and asked, “What do you think, Captain Li?”
Captain Li looked up and said leisurely, “I won’t slow you young people down . Have fun!”
Su Qianci was well disposed toward Sheng Ximing, since he had helped her a lot her previous lifetime . However, in this lifetime, the events had changed significantly . If she did not find him on purpose, their first meeting should be more than a year from now . No matter how things had changed, Sheng Ximing had still treated her nicely . The warm invitation from Sheng Ximing had stopped Su Qianci from turning him down . She looked at Li Sicheng and asked, “Shall we?”
Li Sicheng glanced at her and then Song Yifan .
Song Yifan smiled friendly at him and asked again, “Let’s go?”
“As long as you wish to go . ” Hearing Li Sicheng’s answer, Su Qianci smiled .
Sheng Ximing was overjoyed and quickly got everyone on board . The sailboat was quite fast, and it took about twenty minutes to reach the island . It was a clean and small island, without any residents on it . There were several grills set up on the island . Sheng Ximing and Song Yifan had two other friends coming with . They quickly took everything down from the boat and set it up .
Feeling excited, Su Qianci went to help . One of the two friends quickly started to talk to Su Qianci, “Hey, what’s your name? I am Aduo, Mr . Sheng Ximing’s assistant . This is Ali, my boyfriend . ”
“My name is Su Qianci . ”
“Are you friends with Mr . Sheng? I have never seen him spending so much time on helping a girl looking for her mother . ”
Su Qianci paused and gazed at Aduo, “You said that Uncle Sheng has been looking for my mother?”
Aduo did not feel anything was odd . Making a skewer, she said, “Yes, but it was so difficult . All he found was that back in time your mother…”
“Aduo?” Sheng Ximing called, “Could you get me some drinks?”
“Coming!” Aduo immediately went to the boat, carrying a dozen beers and juices .
However, Sheng Ximing walked up and whispered to her, “Don’t tell her that I am looking into her background . It is a secret . Also, don’t let her know what we are here for . ”
Aduo heard him and scratched her head, looking regretful . “That would be awkward…”
