Shangxin paused lightly in her steps.
She cast a doubtful glance at him. The next moment, she turned around and took a scan of the surroundings, but did not spot Xie Feng.
When Tang Yuansi saw that she was back, he straightened his body slowly and said, “No need to look. Xie Feng is already gone.”
His gaze tightened at the mention of that name.
Chilliness penetrated that gaze.
Shangxin was astonished, but soon responded swiftly and asked, “Did you chase him away?”
Xie Feng had just confessed to her, but she hadn’t replied him yet; even if he had wanted to leave, he would have waited for her to return first.
Unless someone said something to him!
“His legs are his. It’s none of my business if he wants to leave.” Tang Yuansi picked up the drink that he had just ordered and took a small sip. After that, he added on, “He’s not the man for you.”
Shangxin returned to her senses and narrowed her eyes.
He wasn’t saying that he didn’t want her to go on blind dates. Instead, he was saying that Xie Feng wasn’t the man for her.
So this meant she could go on blind dates as long as it was the right man?
Suddenly, a gust of anger rose in her chest as she pulled the chair out and sat down.
“If he isn’t the right man, then who is? You?”
“Oh yeah, it was indeed very right for us to have sex!” Shangxin bellowed incoherently.
She had already started to regret it when she finished speaking.
They had reached an agreement that one night was enough.
That she would let go and stop pestering him.
But what now?
He must be mocking and despising her in his heart, right?
All of a sudden, Shangxin felt a little awkward. Reaching out, she picked up the cup of water in front of her and gulped down all the contents in it.
Just when she placed the empty cup back onto the table and was about to leave, he opened his mouth faintly and said, “You are not in very good condition today. I’ll send you back first.”
“No need. Don’t you worry, I’ll act on what I’ve said. I will not take the initiative to appear in front of you and will not pester you anymore…”
Before she could finish her sentence, Tang Yuansi had already stood up and put on his coat.
As he strolled to her, he grasped her hand and pulled her up.
“What are you doing? Let go of me!”
Just when Shangxin was about to struggle, she heard Tang Yuansi’s deep and low voice say, “I will not stop you if you wish to attract all the reporters.”
Shangxin couldn’t struggle out of his grip and could only glare at him with red-rimmed eyes.
Speaking with frigid irony, she asked, “What do you mean by this? You didn’t even want to cast a single glance at me when I was chasing and running after you. Yet now, you’re here to interfere with my life when I’ve granted you your freedom. What, do you think that you’ve taken my virginity and thus owe me something? Is that why you wanted to examine my next man?”
Tang Yuansi’s hand that was holding onto her hand tightened up silently.
A vexed look flashed past his eyes when he thought of that night.
Shangxin’s heart scrunched up as she observed all the expressions on his face.
She was on the verge of losing her balance. Tilting her head upward, she managed to prevent an outburst of her tears.
She shook his hand off forcefully, but Tang Yuansi did not let go of his grip on her.
He threw his credit card at the waiter to settle their bill and pulled her to the car park.
He opened the door to the car and asked her to get into it.
“I’ve already said that I don’t need you to send me back. What do you mean by this?” Everything that Shangxin said was completely ignored.
When Tang Yuansi noticed that she wasn’t moving, he carried her up and placed her into the car.
After he buckled her up, he closed the car door and locked it.
He made his way to the driver’s seat, pulled the car door open, and sat down inside.
Both his hands were gripping the steering wheel forcefully, but he did not drive off immediately.
When he saw her reddened eyes, the look in his eyes turned very, very dark.
Both of them were at a stalemate for a very long time. In the end, he couldn’t bear to see her being upset and said, “Xie Feng is not the right person for you. Even if you want to go on blind dates, you should find someone that you like.”
