Uesugi Kotoko was in her swimsuit, lying on a couch beside the window in her cabin . She was staring at the sea in boredom .
The sea was not so fascinating to her since she could see it everywhere in Japan . She thought she might stumble into one or two interesting people on this cruise, but it seemed she was going to be disappointed .
There were a few knocks on the door, which brought some excitement into Uesugi Kotoko’s eyes . However, she immediately realized it might be a waiter . However, if the waiter was good-looking, she might tease him a little . If he was just ordinary-looking, she would not bother wasting her time .
“The door isn’t locked . Come in,” Uesugi Kotoko said .
“You sure about this?” said a man with a gentle and charming voice .
Even so, the man still pushed the door open . The couch was right on the other side of the room, thus he could see the exposed Uesugi Kotoko, as she was only wearing a swimsuit .
“It’s you!” Uesugi Kotoko blurted out in surprise . She looked at the blond man passionately .
Normally, only Europeans were good-looking with blond hair, perhaps because of their distinctive facial features that set off a natural noble aura, but this man was an Asian . However, the blond hair suited him perfectly . His handsome face could easily set any woman on fire . He was definitely the type that Uesugi Kotoko liked .
“I found your purse at the swimming pool; the card in it had your room number . I thought you might be worried after you lost it, so I came to bring it back,” the blond man said gently .
“What if I told you I purposely left it behind?” Uesugi Kotoko said with squinted eyes .
“I would tell you that I purposely came to give it back, too,” the man answered easily .
The two exchanged glances with a smile . Uesugi Kotoko slowly rose to her feet and went up to the man in a catwalk . She went around him in a circle, like she was admiring a piece of art . She gently placed her hand on his shoulder while closing the door behind them .
“I don’t really like the cabins here . Should we go somewhere more exciting?” The man sounded very experienced . He could easily tell what kind of women he could tackle without a disguise, as it would entice them more .
“Enlighten me,” Uesugi Kotoko said agreeably .
“I like it dark, messy, and a little dirty . An underground chamber, the fire escape stairs, or the water tank on a roof…” the man hinted broadly .
“I like it dark too,” Uesugi Kotoko agreed .
“How about the cargo bay? I’m pretty sure no one is there,” the man suggested .
“It won’t matter if someone is there,” Uesugi Kotoko said .
The two exchanged smiles again .
The cargo bay normally had a few crew members watching it . The ship might be a luxurious cruise liner, but it was also transporting some valuable resources . The hold also contained the luggage of the passengers .
The cargo bay was huge, located a few levels below the deck . The crew members were dozing off, as it was late at night .
“I saw a man in a uniform having a long conversation with you at the pool . Is he your husband?” the man asked .
“Of course not,” Uesugi Kotoko rolled her eyes . She added seductively as if she realized how to stimulate the man, “My husband is in Japan . He’s most likely indulging in his AVs (adult videos) . ”
“I see, I thought that sailor was close with you . Why were you two talking for so long?” the man asked .
Uesugi Kotoko was a little unhappy . She could not stand it any longer, as she wanted to vent her desires immediately . However, she could not rush it, either . Otherwise, she might look too impatient .
“They were checking my identification . I brought something they aren’t comfortable with onto the cruise . I’m planning to bring it back to Japan,” Uesugi Kotoko said .
“Drugs?” the man asked .
“Something more exciting,” Uesugi Kotoko said .
“Really? I’m curious about it now,” the man said .
“You wouldn’t say that if you know what it is,” Uesugi Kotoko said .
“I really want to try it now . I’m experienced with my stuff . It might serve as the entree before the main course,” the man said .
Uesugi Kotoko’s eyes glittered with excitement . She was not excited because of the dark environment, but at the mention of her job!
“I know where my luggage is . I wouldn’t mind if you’re interested, but I hope you are still hard after seeing it,” Uesugi Kotoko said .
“I told you I’m experienced . Normal stuff won’t excite me at all . ”
They went past the shelves . Uesugi Kotoko was actually going to show Zhao Manyan her brilliant masterpiece .
“The cold storage?” Zhao Manyan was surprised .
“Didn’t you say you are experienced? Take a guess,” Uesugi Kotoko smiled .
Zhao Manyan did not answer . He followed Uesugi Kotoko into the cold storage .
A box with silver lines was placed on a shelf . It had the shape of a coffin, with simple decorations on the outside .
“What about now?” Uesugi Kotoko asked .
“Ugh… I can’t guess it still . Can we open it?” Zhao Manyan asked .
“Of course not, it took me a lot of effort to seal it up . Once it’s opened, the air inside will be corrupted . I believe you know how many microorganisms there are floating in the air . It’s going to make my precious rot,” Uesugi Kotoko said .
“Rot? Don’t tell me there’s a body inside this box that looks like a coffin,” Zhao Manyan said .
“You guessed it right…”
They heard some knocks from inside the box before Uesugi Kotoko could finish her sentence .
Zhao Manyan was startled . He immediately fixed his eyes on Uesugi Kotoko .
Uesugi Kotoko did not look surprised . She explained with a smile, “A dead body will eventually rot . Even the best preservation method won’t be able to preserve it perfectly . The fresher the dead body, the more valuable it is, so we are a little lenient when we are collecting specimens . ”
“What do you mean?” Zhao Manyan’s expression began to shift .
“It means sealing up someone who’s dying when he’s still alive,” Uesugi Kotoko said .
“You sealed up a living person inside to be used as a specimen?” Zhao Manyan exclaimed .
“Don’t worry, I’m not a murderer . I only find people who are dying and preserve their bodies to maximize their contributions to mankind . Even the greatest Healer in the world won’t be able to save this person’s life . I found him in Xiamen and Sealed him up!” Uesugi Kotoko was extremely excited when she was talking about her work .
