Wang Qianjin wiped the corner of his mouth and said, “Yun Bixue, this is the second time you’ve slapped me.”
Seeing Wang Qianjin’s menacing look, coupled with the fact that she had no means of escape, her resolve wavered. She was smart enough to understand that any resistance was futile, so she slapped herself and replied, “I didn’t mean it. Look, I just returned the favor.”
Wang Qianjin was taken aback at what Yun Bixue just did, so much so that he spaced out. When he saw the reddened handprint on her right cheek, his intoxicating eyes glistened and revealed a look of approval and appreciation.
Yun Bixue was tough, even to herself. She was completely different from any other women, and he couldn’t help but praise her.
Because of that self-inflicted slap, the evil aura radiating from Wang Qianjin’s body dissipated, and his mood returned to normal.
Yun Bixue sighed in relief under her breath. She couldn’t be sure what he would do to her if she had provoked him. There was no one else here, and without someone stepping in to help her, she wouldn’t be able to deal with whatever was in store for her.
Although she could die with dignity, she was living a wonderful life. Naturally, she didn’t want to tread on that path. She still looked forward to returning to Limo.
He was most likely devastated that she was missing.
Yun Bixue clenched her jaw. “If you’re not satisfied with that slap, I can do it again.”
“You’re really tough. If you can do that to yourself, I’m sure you’re even tougher to others. What a turn off. You look even uglier now with that red mark on your face…” Wang Qianjin crossed his arms as he looked at Yun Bixue’s face and criticized her.
A glint flashed across Yun Bixue’s eyes. “Since I’m so ugly, I’ll take my leave now. Bye! This way, I won’t be an eyesore.” As she spoke, she started to walk past him and head to the door.
She only cared about that door. She badly wanted to leave this place.
Wang Qianjin stepped forward and moved his body to the side, blocking Yun Bixue’s path. “It’s not good if a woman is too cunning. Look at yourself, can you even walk properly?”
Yun Bixue could feel that every step she took made her head spin and her feet hurt. Nonetheless, she had to be strong. Even if she were to crawl, she still wanted to leave and return to Xie Limo’s side.
“You’re too harsh on yourself, woman. You’re in such a sorry state yet you’re still forcing yourself.”
Yun Bixue felt upset and overwhelmed with her body’s current condition. “It’s none of your business.”
“Don’t forget that I saved you. It’ll be a huge waste for me if you collapse, fall, and lose your life now after all that effort. If a hero saves a damsel in distress, shouldn’t the beautiful damsel repay the favor with her life?”
Yun Bixue frowned and stared at Wang Qianjin. Pointing at her reddened right cheek, she asked, “Didn’t you just say that I’m ugly? Since the handsome hero had saved the ugly damsel, how about the ugly damsel owe him a favor?”
Yun Bixue’s words were loaded with another meaning—she wanted to remind Wang Qianjin that he found her ugly. She wouldn’t be ungrateful and forget about his help, so she took it upon herself to imply that she owed him a favor and just forget about everything else.
Wang Qianjin waved his hand. “A favor isn’t worth it. If you beg, I might consider it.”
Yun Bixue ignored his words and asked in an indifferent voice, “Where are we now?”
“Are we still in Ning An City?”
Wang Qianjin sighed. “Ever since that fire, the entire city has been on lockdown. It’s so tightly secured that even a bird couldn’t fly in. Where else could we be, if not Ning An City?”
Hearing this news, Yun Bixue’s face revealed a faint smile. That meant Limo was safe and sound. She could finally feel at ease.
Yun Bixue repeated quietly in her heart, ” Limo, wait for me. I’ll definitely return to your side. ”
