Chapter 14 Huge Misfortune
Lin Yan couldn’t utter a retort. She felt so aggrieved that she looked like a mushroom that had been ruined by a savage storm.
Pei Yucheng glanced at the girl. Although she looked as though she had so much to say, she ended up choking back her words. His spirits soared without a reason. “Did you think of a more reasonable excuse?”
Lin Yan pressed her lips pitifully, looking as though she had admitted defeat. Resigning herself to fate, she muttered, “Nothing… Nothing else…”
She couldn’t possibly say that she had been possessed and that she hadn’t been herself, could she?
She was doomed to carry the blame for this huge misfortune…
Pei Yucheng snuffed the cigarette in his hand. “Come here.”
When Lin Yan heard him, she raised her head quickly and widened her eyes, looking wary.
Pei Yucheng noticed that the girl remained frozen. His eyes turned cold. Menace and malice seemed to be pouring out bit by bit.
Lin Yan suddenly felt as though a rush of coldness was climbing up her spine. She swallowed her saliva and decided to admit defeat. She trudged slowly in the direction of Pei Yucheng.
After dawdling for some time, she finally stopped three steps away from Pei Yucheng.
The man seemed to think that she was too slow. He extended his arm and, the next second, she was already sitting beside him.
A faint whiff of tobacco enveloped her instantly along with his aura.
Lin Yan literally didn’t even dare breathe too loudly. She stared at the man with fear in her eyes.
At that moment, the girl looked so flustered and frightened that she resembled a pitiful, docile rabbit who had just trespassed upon a wolf’s lair.
From this distance, one could clearly see how smooth and tender her skin was, despite her weak health and mentality. There were hardly any pores to be seen.
This was probably because her skin was too tender, and the area where she had slapped herself earlier was swollen and red right now.
Pei Yucheng extended a long finger and gently touched her swollen cheek.
Lin Yan shrank her neck instinctively in pain.
Pei Yucheng stretched his hand across Lin Yan, opened a drawer behind her and took out something.
This action made it seem as though he had pulled her into his embrace.
Lin Yan held her breath this entire time, not even daring to move.
She couldn’t possibly retaliate by hitting him, could she? She was the one at fault!
Just as Lin Yan was wondering if Pei Yucheng had found something to wallop her…
The man’s finger felt cool as he rubbed her swollen cheek gently…
There was a cooling sensation on her cheek that felt comfortable. She seemed to also catch a whiff of ointment.
Lin Yan was startled.
Was Pei Yucheng… applying medicine on her?
As she thought quietly, the man finished applying the medicine.
Soon, Pei Yucheng placed his hands casually beside her body. He gazed at her with a pair of deep, cold eyes and said softly, “Miss Lin, please take good care of your body. I don’t wish to see you getting hurt in the future.”
It hadn’t occurred to Lin Yan that Pei Yucheng was concerned about her. She blinked her eyes in bewilderment and nodded unconsciously. “Oh…”
Pei Yucheng put away the ointment and added casually, “After all, I have the right to use your body.”
Lin Yan was speechless!
What did he mean by saying that he had the right to use her body?
His words could cause a misunderstanding too easily.
Lin Yan’s face registered shock, but she didn’t dare to ask for clarification.
Had she done something weird while she had been drunk?
Lin Yan didn’t even dare utter a word right now.
Suddenly, a knocking sound was heard.
Pei Yucheng said, “Enter.”
Lin Yan seized this opportunity to get away from him. Then, she unconsciously stole a glance in the direction the footsteps came from. The next moment, she froze like an idiot on the spot.
