Xuxu was caught off guard, and she stood frozen in front of him as he stared at her with his languid and deep eyes.
Her heart skipped a beat in that split second.
She stood barefooted as she stared at him blankly.
Both of them were just inches apart, and Yan Rusheng peered closely at her palm-sized face. He could even see the pores on her skin.
Xuxu clenched her bathrobe nervously as she felt the chilliness on the floor spreading from her feet. After being barefoot for too long, she began to stand on the balls of her feet.
Yan Rusheng didn't seem to realize that she was actually nervous as he locked his gaze on her face.
He seemed to be searching for something.
Xuxu got more uneasy and finally spoke up, "Why... why are you here?"
This was his room. Isn't it normal for him to come to his room?
She felt stupid after asking the question, and she scolded herself silently.
Yan Rusheng took a puff and didn't answer her. Then he threw her a question as the wisps of smoke circulated the air. "Wen Xuxu, I'd really like to know how long it'll take for you to forget a person."
His handsome face was shrouded by the thick and gloomy smoke.
His deep eyes appeared to be rippling lightly with certain suppressed emotions, almost seeming to resemble fear.
Xuxu was worried that something terrible had happened. She ignored his question. "Did anything happen to you?"
"Wen Xuxu, in this lifetime, you belong to the Yan family. Even if you die, your spirit will still belong to the Yan family." Yan Rusheng flicked the cigarette away and stubbed it with his toes. His hands forcefully pinned Xuxu against the wall. She didn't have the chance to react as he pressed his lips roughly against hers.
His breath had the scent of tobacco and a hint of fresh mint. Coupled with his kiss, it assailed and engulfed Wen Xuxu completely.
All this happened without warning and she couldn't even catch her breath.
She had a hunch that he was feeling troubled tonight; something must have happened.
He was still fine during dinner and had acted normally.
In a short span of time, Xuxu could feel Yan Rusheng's breathing becoming deeper. Her heart had melted with his touch, and she couldn't bear to push him away.
She raised her hands subconsciously and embraced his waist.
He could feel her delicate and soft skin beneath that bathrobe. His body gave an involuntary shudder, and he increased the intensity of his kiss the next moment.
Her heart and person, he wanted it all.
Wen Xuxu... is mine.
"Unless you chase me away, I won't..." Xuxu finally had the chance to speak up as Yan Rusheng moved his face away. Her voice was reduced to a whisper. "I won't leave."
She had said the same words to another guy a few days before. How ironic and ridiculous, she thought to herself.
But this time around, she really had no other way out. Despite not knowing what would happen in the future.
Unless Yan Rusheng chased her away.
She felt extremely guilty for giving Ah Heng hope and yet letting him down once again.
Yan Rusheng heard her confession, and his actions paused in surprise. He gradually turned his head and watched the tiny face which was flushed red from his kisses.
Her words reassured him beyond anything else as though she had given him a tranquilizer.
He didn't try to kiss her as fiercely as before. Instead, he quietly embraced her and rested his head lightly on her shoulders.
The words echoed in his mind once moreUnless you chase me away, I won't leave.
Xuxu could feel that he was drained. "I can go back to work if you let me."
