Xuxu knitted her eyebrows and glared at him. “Su Yan, please stop following me. If my husband sees you later, you’re dead.”
She wasn’t trying to scare him. When an old classmate requested her WeChat number, he fiercely scowled at him. So if he sees a handsome young man trying to chat her up, and given his petty nature, not only would he smash his camera, he would mercilessly wallop him as well.
“You’re married?” Su Yan had a look of unbelief on his face. “You look young and don’t look like you’re married.”
As he said that, he scrolled back to the photo that he had taken earlier.
“You are absolutely stunning, too wonderful to behold.” As he looked at Xuxu’s photo, Su Yan lavished unceasing praises on her. “Has anyone ever told you this? One can easily fall for you right from the first sight.”
After that, he raised his head to look at Xuxu.
Suddenly, his eyes nervously flickered. “Move away quickly.”
A tricycle’s brake seemed to have malfunctioned. It was fiercely charging down at Xuxu from the back. The people on the tricycle nervously sounded the bell when they saw that it would almost run into Xuxu.
Before Xuxu knew it, Su Yan had taken two huge steps towards her and immediately grabbed hold of her. Her waist length hair whirled mid-air, like a blooming black lotus that gave off a mild fragrance.
The tricycle sped past them. Su Yan closed his eyes, took a deep breath, and looked at Xuxu with a smile. “What’s the brand of the shampoo that you’re using? It smells so nice.”
When she could hear his breathing, Xuxu realized that both of them were barely inches apart. She immediately pushed Su Yan away.
Su Yan furrowed his eyebrows and groaned in pain. “Ouch.”
He raised one of his shoulders and Xuxu realized that there was a big hole near the underarm. Was it torn when the tricycle brushed past him?
She swallowed her anger and asked out of concern. “Hey, are you alright?”
She briefly recalled how he had teased her earlier, and because of it, she didn’t want to go too near him. If he didn’t suffer any serious injuries, she would have left him.
Anyway, it was because of him that she was standing at that position and almost got knocked down by the tricycle.
“I’m dying soon.” Su Yan stretched out his hand to cover the torn area. He looked as if he was in great pain.
He was exaggerating, and it didn’t shake Xuxu even for a bit. “I believe your family members are nearby. So if you’re really dying, they will definitely come and look for you.”
After saying that, she cheekily winked at Su Yan, turned around and strode with huge steps towards the direction of the restaurant.
Su Yan shouted with displeasure from behind. “I’ve saved your life twice, so please tell me your name in return.”
Xuxu pretended not to hear and continued walking.
The man got rid of the painful expression on his face and looked at the lady disappearing farther and farther away. He curved his lips and aimed his camera at the petite back view.
Su Yan thought to himself. “An aloof and immaculate lady must surely have a nice name.”
Yan Rusheng wasn’t there when Xuxu returned to the restaurant. She stood outside the restaurant and was about to dial his number from her phone.
Just then, her phone rang, and the call was from Yan Rusheng.
She placed her phone to her ears and answered, “Are you done?”
Yan Rusheng replied, “Walk 50 meters to the right. I’ll be waiting for you by the side of the road.”
Walk 50 meters to the right? Xuxu turned and looked towards the right side. She immediately caught sight of the towering figure. She broke into a smile as she hung up the call and ran towards his direction.
