“What?” Nian Xiaomu did not hear him clearly and asked in a puzzled tone; he seemed to be mumbling to himself as he spoke in a low voice.
The next second, Nian Xiaomu suddenly remembered that he might not know her. Opening her mouth, she introduced herself hurriedly and said, “My name is Nian Xiaomu. By the way, I didn’t mean to intrudeI am just worried that it wouldn’t be good if you don’t change your pants and others saw this.”
“ Nian Xiaomu?”
Fan Yu was stumped for words the moment he heard this name.
The pleasantly surprised look on his face turned complex all of a sudden.
Bit by bit, the ray of light in his dark brown eyes dimmed.
Just when he was about to ask a question, a voice roared from a distance, “Let go of her!”
Before Fan Yu had the time to lift his head up, a grand figure had already walked up to the both of them.
With a darkened face, Yu Yuehan stared at their interlocked hands and immediately pulled Nian Xiaomu over into his embrace.
Following which, he stared at Fan Yu with a vigilant look.
As he swept his gaze past the broken wine glass on the floor, he knitted his eyebrows.
Lowering his gaze, he checked on Nian Xiaomu with concern and asked, “Are you hurt anywhere?”
A hint of worry that could not be concealed lurked in his voice.
Nian Xiaomu shook her head at lightning speed and said, “It wasn’t mine. My wine glass is still perfectly fine. It was Young Master Fan’s wine glass that toppled over by accident.”
Yu Yuehan only realized that she was indeed holding a glass of red wine when he heard this.
The red wine in the glass had nearly spilled out when he dragged her over just now.
She was trying to protect the glass anxiously.
He would settle the score with her later for that time when she had discreetly drank some alcohol.
Now, however, it was time to deal with Fan Yu.
His gaze toward Nian Xiaomu just now
Yu Yuehan narrowed his eyes. As he hid Nian Xiaomu behind him, he opened his mouth indifferently and said, “Young Master Fan, you are surely in a great mood. There are so many people waiting to do business with you, but here you are hiding in a corner, sipping your wine, and admiring the moon.”
The emotions in Fan Yu’s eyes had already vanished right from the moment that Yu Yuehan appeared in front of him.
A warm smile took over his handsome face instead.
However, that smile did not look truly genuine.
Yes, it looked like a gentle smile, but at the same time, an unspeakable sense of loneliness could be felt from within him as well.
As the corner of his mouth curved up effortlessly, he said, “I was tired from all the social discourse, so I found a quiet place to drink my wine.”
His gaze floated toward Nian Xiaomu again the moment he finished speaking.
When he saw Yu Yuehan, who was standing right in front of her protectively, his gaze flickered.
He seemed to be speculating about the relationship between the both of them.
A few seconds later, he finally smiled and said, “Miss Nian seems to enjoy hiding somewhere secluded to drink her alcohol, just like me. I will surely stay calm next time, lest I break my glass again and spoil the atmosphere.”
This sentence of his had successfully caused Yu Yuehan’s face to darken.
Yu Yuehan coldly glanced at him. Holding Nian Xiaomu by the arm, he turned around and left.
Yu Yuehan took ridiculously quick footsteps while a rage that could not be concealed was surrounding him.
He gripped onto her wrists ever so tightly, seemingly worried that she would disappear if he released his grip by just a little.
“Yu Yuehan, walk slower. I can’t keep up with you”
Just when Nian Xiaomu shrieked and was about to ask what exactly was wrong with him, she suddenly realized that Yu Yuehan had pulled her out to the corridor outside the hall.
The surroundings were awfully quiet, and the only sound present was the howling of the cold wind.
It was whistling and echoing.
His long and slender figure was standing in a perfectly straight manner while his hands that were hanging by the sides of his body had curled into fists. Veins were popping out from the backs of his hands.
He seemed to be enduring something
Nian Xiaomu immediately set down the glass of red wine in her hand. As she stole a gentle and cautious glance at him, she said, “Erm, I didn’t intentionally hide myself just to drink alcohol. The truth is that I was a little thirsty after my trip to the bathroom, so I wanted to drink a little bit. I was afraid that you would be angry, hence I Argh!”
Before she could finish her sentence, Yu Yuehan suddenly turned around and pressed her against the wall. Lowering his head, he kissed her tightly on her lips!
