LRWML: Chapter-2


Shen Qing Huan was a ninth-line actor in the industry, who was squeezed in the middle of the first and eighteenth-line. Even in a low-budget crew like ‘Ideal Township’, she could only play the role of fourth female-lead.

A professional like Xiao Xiao would never serve some ninth-line actress, but she and her group were arranged by Xu An Shen.

Xu An Shen was the number one golden bachelor of the capital, he was the heir of the Xu family. Xu’s family was one of the top four giants in the capital.

After joining the Xu Group, Xu An Shen expanded the business crazily and invested in dozens of companies, all of which were making profits. He was very capable.

But this was just the icing on the cake, Xu An Shen was mostly loved for his gentleman demeanor. He was very polite especially towards women. His gentleness added a fascinating charm to his personality.

In the case of scandals of the rich, Xu An Shen was clean. There had been only two scandals on his name in so many years. And the most recent one was related to…

“Xiao Xiao.” Shen Qing Huan’s gentle voice disrupted Xiao Xiao’s thoughts.

“Is there something, Ms. Shen?” Xiao Xiao asked with a soft smile.

It was no wonder that Shen Qing Huan could beat so many rich ladies of the capital and took away Xu An Shen’s heart. With this kind of voice, even her heart was softened.

The voice wasn’t purely delicate but mixed with a bit of coldness, it showed the intriguing laziness of the owner. It made people want to listen to a few more words.

“Is the upper body massage finished?”

The spa professional replied, “Well, it’s done.”

“Can you help me with something?” Shen Qing Haun asked politely.

“Yes, what can I help you with?” The smile on Xiao Xiao’s mouth became wider.

Shen Qing Huan raised her massaged arm and pointed towards a direction. 

A metal dream-catcher look like a revolving lantern candlestick was present there. There was also an apple-sized scented candle in a starry cup placed near it. 

“Can you help me to light the candle up?”

Although there was no logo or tag on the candlestick, when Xiao Xiao lit the candle, her movement paused for a moment.

This was the scent of “Midnight Burning” an exclusive incense of SD’s house.

This series was also known as a ‘Hermes’ in the scented candles, literally, this scented candle was as expensive as ‘Hermes’ bags.

Moreover, this product line of “Midnight Burning” was a limited edition, it was specially designed by the SD family for the top wealthy families. People qualified to buy it in China could be counted on a finger.

Xiao Xiao knew this fragrance because the biggest customer of her spa once was able to get a small piece of this incense stick and reluctantly used it for few minutes in a spa session.

This was the scent of money and status, once smelt you would never forget.

Xiao Xiao silently chanted in her heart, ‘I am not a country bun, I have seen the world before. I would not tremble.’ and with the help of the chant, she steadily tried to light the incense. She didn’t want to embarrass herself by showing her trembling hands.
