Ming Ansheng looked at Su Yue’s face. He clenched his fists and opened them repeatedly.
After an intense struggle, he finally mustered all his courage. He stretched his hand towards Su Yue and grabbed her hand.
“Yueyue!” Ming Ansheng’s eyes were huge with determination. He couldn’t suppress the love and longing he had for her any longer. He embraced her and held the other hand tightly.
Her hands were as cold as ice.
Ming Ansheng’s abrupt embrace had Su Yue in shock. She lifted her face to gaze at him—his gorgeous face, his lips, his eyebrows.
This was the first time she had gazed at him from such an angle.
Her heart furiously pounded and it made her flustered. Her face was burning hot.
She hastily averted her gaze and pushed against Ming Ansheng’s chest. She leaned against the car door and propped an arm on the car window. She turned her head and continued to gaze out of the window.
Ming Ansheng’s arms and heart were emptied all of a sudden.
He spun his head and gazed intently at Su Yue. She seemed so unruffled and aloof.
This was the first time he had initiated such intimate actions with her. And to him, it was like an indirect profession of love.
But she had rejected him so outwardly.
She pushed him away with such force and it made him feel rejected.
After staring at her for a while, Ming Ansheng peered away, looking sorrowful and disappointed.
“Your body stinks.”
Su Yue said and suddenly turned around from Ming Ansheng.
It dumbfounded Ming Ansheng. So he stared at her with a slightly blank expression. He smiled as he replied, “It’s because I’ve used an entire afternoon trying to look for a runaway damsel.”
“I’m an illegitimate child,” Su Yue said forlornly, and she rested her head against the car window. The expression in her eyes seemed despondent.
Ming Ansheng stretched his hand and stroked her hair gently. “Don’t bother with what others say of you. Aren’t you happy now?”
“You have your third brother, third sister-in-law, your brother and…” Ming Ansheng paused for a moment before pressing on. “And the rest of us like you. Isn’t that enough?”
Su Yue fell silent as she peered at the surroundings.
The car window was open and she had placed her arms on the window frame. She pursed her lips as she rested her chin on her arms. Her eyes reflected the bright lights.
A pair of sorrowful-looking eyes.
Ming Ansheng quietly stared at her back. If only she could hug him… he vowed he would never let her go.
Various wonderful scenarios appeared in his mind.
At last, he curled his lips in sheer mock, and all those scenarios vanished in an instant.
The moment he had fallen for her, he knew that it was a grave mistake. How could he drag her into the depths together?
Ming Ansheng brought Su Yue to his apartment.
He had been staying in the apartment for quite some time.
After Ming Ansheng opened the door, he switched on the lights as Su Yue trailed after him.
He opened the shoe cabinet and brought out a brand new pair of slippers and placed it at her feet. “Change into them,” Ming Ansheng told Su Yue.
The slippers were small and the design was feminine with red and white stripes.
Su Yue eyed the slippers and a strange sensation coursed through her body.
She scrutinized it for some time, but she didn’t remove her shoes.
Ming Ansheng noticed her and he frowned. “What’s wrong?”
“Does this belong to your bird-brained fiancée?” Su Yue furrowed her eyebrows tightly. She pursed her lips and continued, “I’m not wearing.”
