467 Miss Lin, I Was Waiting For You

    It was past midnight when Lin Yan finally got back home.

    For fear of waking Pei Yucheng up, she tip-toed gently as she pushed the door.

    She removed her shoes and was about to step into the living room, when she saw a dim light coming from a lamp. Pei Yucheng was resting on the couch.

    He had taken off his spectacles and left them on a pile of documents. He seemed to be asleep...

    Lin Yan hadn't expected Pei Yucheng to be in the living room. Unconsciously, she held her breath for a moment and exhaled softly.

    Why wasn't Pei Yucheng asleep?

    If he was working... why wasn't he in the study?

    Pei Yucheng didn't appear to be sleeping deeply. When Lin Yan was a few steps away from him, his eyelashes fluttered.

    The man looked a little sleepy as his gaze traveled up to Lin Yan's face. He picked up his spectacles and slowly became alert again.

    "You're back."

    Lin Yan nodded in response. "I had to discuss some matters with Grandfather today, so I came home late. Did I disturb you?"

    Ever since Lin Yan had claimed that Pei Yucheng came first in her heart, he hadn't corrected the way she spoke to him.

    Pei Yucheng massaged his temples as he rose. "Are you hungry? I left some food for you."

    Lin Yan's heart plummeted and she swallowed her saliva. "Thank you, Mr. Pei. But there's no need. I already ate dinner. Besides, as an actress, I have to maintain my figure. I can't eat too much."

    Pei Yucheng didn't insist. Instead, he said, "Okay, go rest early then."

    Lin Yan nodded ferociously. "Okay! You too, Mr. Pei!"

    She then added casually, "Mr. Pei, were you working just now?"

    "Yeah. Why?" asked Pei Yucheng.

    Lin Yan scratched her head. "Nothing. I just found it weird. Do you prefer to work in the living room? Why aren't you in the study?"

    Wasn't working in the study much more comfortable than bending over on a couch?

    She remembered that this wasn't the first time she had seen Pei Yucheng working in the living room. Furthermore, he had stayed up late today. Lin Yan was curious, which was why she had asked.

    Pei Yucheng raised his eyebrows when he heard the girl. "Miss Lin... do you seriously not know?"

    "Huh?" Lin Yan blinked, looking puzzled. "I... Is there something I should know?"

    How could she know? How could she ever understand what was going on in Pei Yucheng's head?

    Pei Yucheng studied the bewildered girl and sighed helplessly. He raised his head and gazed into the girl's eyes. Slowly, he said, "Miss Lin, I was waiting for you..."

    I was waiting for you...

    Lin Yan blinked several times in silence. She was unable to comprehend what Pei Yucheng had said.

    What he meant was that... he had chosen to work in the living room... because he had been waiting for her?

    The man interjected and interrupted her thoughts. "I don't work in the living room out of habit. I did that so that I could see you more often."

    Lin Yan was speechless...

    Why would Pei Yucheng be so direct?

    If Lin Yan still didn't grasp his meaning, then she would be a moron!

    Pei Yucheng realized that the girl had finally understood and he smiled in satisfaction.
