After picking up her belongings and putting them back into her purse, Su Qianci stood up. Looking up, she glanced at the man who was almost immediately behind her. Familiar scent, male hormones, and the face so familiar
Li Sicheng reached out a hand and pushed her against the wall. His eyes were so dark and deep as if they could suck her in. When she looked up at him, her voice choked.
“Feeling guilty?” Li Sicheng’s voice was deep like cello.
Biting her bottom lip, she turned her head aside and tried to push him away. However, he did not budge. He gazed at her more attentively. Forcing her against the wall, he forbade her to go away and said slowly, “What are you afraid of? Tell me” She did not say anything, but tears fell down her cheeks.
Li Sicheng’s look softened as he grabbed her hand and took her keys. “Let’s go inside. It’s cold here.”
“I don’t want to go inside,” Su Qianci said firmly while sobbing. “If you want to say anything, say it here.”
“I will help you move your stuff back home.”
“This is my home. Mr. Li, please go back. I will not go with you.”
Li Sicheng narrowed his eyes slightly with a dangerous look. However, he tried to be patient and said, “Don’t act like a child. You can’t disturb Daddy Song all the time.”
“Dad went to London.”
“So, I’ll stay here to keep you company today.”
Feeling reluctant, Su Qianci pushed him away and shook her head hard. “No!”
Li Sicheng put his arm around her waist, gazed at her and asked, “What’s wrong? Are you afraid that I’m going to blame you? Or, are you afraid that I might hit Lu Yihan?”
Su Qianci shook her head again and again. But her voice choked.
“I don’t have a problem with you having friends as long as you keep your distance.” Li Sicheng approached her as he spoke. “Lu Yihan is your good friend, and I acted on an impulse last time. Later I found out what had happened, and I am very grateful to him. When we have an opportunity, you can take me to thank him and apologize to him in person. How about that?”
Although he still resented the idea of seeing them together, Lu Yihan did save Su Qianci’s life. An apology and gratitude were necessary. Leaning in, he had a gentle look in his eyes as he whispered softly, “You know, I miss you so much.”
Smelling the faint tobacco scent, her heart was wrung by those words, making it hurt like hell. He said he missed her. He did. However, he went on “the business trip” with Tang Mengying for an entire week. Now that he was back from the “trip,” he missed her? Or, did he miss her because Tang Mengying’s body was no longer in good condition for him to “go on a business trip?” Unable to stand it anymore, Su Qianci burst into tears, pushed him away, and slapped him in the face.
Li Sicheng was dumbfounded, gazing at Su Qianci.
When she tried to hit him a second time, his eyes darkened and he grabbed her hand, growling, “What’s wrong with you?” Since childhood, he had always been a success. At twenty-six years old, he had only been hit by one woman, twice.
Su Qianci shuddered and leaned against the wall. Looking at him, she cried, “Why, why do you have to do this to me”
Feeling absurd, Li Sicheng gazed at her coldly and groaned, “Su Qianci!” He was the one who got slapped, and she was crying before he did?
However, Su Qianci slowly unbuttoned her jacket. She was only wearing a tank top under the jacket. As she took it off, her fair, smooth skin was very alluring to Li Sicheng. Then, she lifted her tank top.
Startled, Li Sicheng quickly held her hand down, barking, “Are you mad? We are outside.”
Su Qianci smiled sadly and said in a low voice, “Isn’t this what you want? I’ll give it to you.”
