532 I Want to Go Home With You

    "What is wrong?" Lin Yan instinctively turned around.

    "I have a last-minute work trip, so I need to fly to Country M now," answered Pei Yucheng.

    Lin Yan was taken aback before she cried, "What? You have to fly now? I could have come back home alone! Then, you could have headed directly to the airport. What time is the flight? Is there enough time? Why didn't you tell me earlier?"

    No wonder she had noticed Cheng Mo looking anxious and distracted earlier.

    Pei Yucheng squeezed the girl's soft hand and replied quietly, "Miss Lin, your suggestion was impossible to reject."

    Lin Yan was speechless...

    Huh? Her suggestion?

    What had she suggested? Hadn't she merely asked if he wanted to go home together?

    He had decided to take a longer route back home before heading to the airport?

    Lin Yan's flushed cheeks felt even hotter at this realization.

    "Sorry, it's the weekend tomorrow, but I have to cancel our date." Pei Yucheng apologized.

    It suddenly dawned on Lin Yan that her alter ego had asked Pei Yucheng out on a date without her permission.

    "Oh, it's alright. Anyway, we'll have plenty of chances in the future. We can go out any time!" quipped Lin Yan.

    Pei Yucheng's eyes glinted a little when he heard Lin Yan. "Okay."

    "Hurry up and go to the airport now! You can't be late!" Lin Yan rushed him, afraid that she might have held him up.

    "Okay, go in then and rest early."

    "Okay, I will."

    Lin Yan stood at the entrance and watched as Pei Yucheng left.

    In the darkness, the man's lonely figure seemed to merge into the shadows...

    Lin Yan watched Pei Yucheng silently.

    She had never felt like this before, as though she needed to do something...

    Lin Yan finally blurted out when the man opened the car door, "Hold on!"

    She scrambled towards him.

    Pei Yucheng studied the girl after he turned around. "Yes?"

    Lin Yan scratched her head and hesitated for some time. Then, she tip-toed and gave Pei Yucheng a swift peck on the lips. "Nothing... Be careful..."

    The girl fled after saying that.

    Pei Yucheng stood frozen to the spot, completely stunned.

    Her soft lips felt like an illusion, yet this had really happened.

    The man's eyes darted after the girl as she ran back to the house. Soon, his shock was replaced by heavy graveness.

    He sighed helplessly to himself.

    He had always been calm and restrained. Nothing could influence his decisions. However, for the first time in his life, he finally understood why so many incapable rulers had existed in history...

    On the way to the airport, Pei Yucheng sat without a word in the car. As the car drove by a huge LED signboard, he accidentally caught a glimpse of the advertisement.

    'Spend this Valentine's Day with your partner in a romantic way...'

    Valentine's Day?

    Pei Yucheng asked softly, "Is it Valentine's Day tomorrow?"

    Cheng Mo nodded promptly and answered, "Yeah, it is..."

    Pei Yucheng narrowed his eyes and the temperature in the car seemed to drop by several degrees.

    Cheng Mo, who knew that he had failed in his duty, hastily added, "Sorry, President Pei... I should have reminded you..."

    Actually, he hadn't gotten used to the fact that his boss was dating someone! That was why it had completely slipped his mind!

    He was finished! Would Boss cancel his upcoming schedule and become an incapable ruler?
