“Yuan Yuan, you haven’t paid for this term yet.”

“Oh, hold on.” A voice sounded from within the apartment.
Following which, the door cracked open, its width but a thin sliver.
A fair hand stretched out from within.
In the hand laid three translucent red pearls.
“Sister Xue, is this alright.”

An exquisite face, snow-white skin and blood-red lips, the person known as “Sister Xue” was a beautiful lady.
On a rainy day as such, she appeared at this apartment, donned in a sheer dress. 

Despite the fact that a person like her appearing in such a run down residential compound should be a particularly striking sight, the voice-activated lights along the hallways remained dark.
