537 Do You Like Him?

    The other party could read her mind effortlessly as though she was an open book!

    However, she had no inkling what this thing was...

    Wasn't it unfair?

    She had no privacy whatsoever!

    "Perhaps..." Pei Yucheng paused as he contemplated. "Let me rephrase my question. He isn't good-looking enough, nor is his figure attractive enough... Or perhaps he isn't wealthy enough?"

    Lin Yan was speechless!

    F*ck! He had broken the rules!

    What was wrong with this fellow? Why did he understand her so well?

    Lin Yan cast all her angry thoughts aside and used her consciousness to reply. "Whether Mr. Pei is good-looking, has a good figure, or is very wealthy has nothing to do with me! Do you think I'm so shallow as to look at his wealth, looks, or figure? I'm not like that!"

    Pei Yucheng listened quietly as the girl replied in a righteous manner. "Really?"

    Lin Yan snapped, "Of course!"

    Just as Lin Yan replied confidently, her consciousness appeared again. "I'm indeed such a person! Pei Yucheng is a celestial boyfriend with looks, money, and a nice figure. Who could resist him?"

    Pei Yucheng was amused. "Oh... Celestial... boyfriend?"

    Lin Yan was stunned by her own response. "F*ck! You can really read my mind!"

    "You should be thanking me instead," quipped Pei Yucheng.

    Lin Yan replied instantly, "Why should I thank you? Do you have any idea the trouble you have caused me? Do you know how tough my life is right now? I'm treading dangerously on the brink of death every day!"

    Lin Yan's consciousness added lazily, "I don't get too happy while enjoying food and beer every day! Occasionally, I can meet my idol as well. When my boyfriend is normal, he has such a good temper. These days are practically blissful! In hindsight, I should really thank you properly..."

    Pei Yucheng agreed. "You're welcome."

    Lin Yan was speechless!

    Her thoughts were exposed once more.

    Infuriated, she hissed, "I do not wish to thank you! I was terrified out of my wits when a boyfriend like Pei Yucheng fell from the sky!"

    Lin Yan's consciousness mused airily, "How could such a blessing fall upon me?"

    Pei Yucheng grunted in amusement.

    Lin Yan was on the brink of having a breakdown.

    Her consciousness would unconsciously appear without warning. How could she control it?

    This was truly exasperating!

    Pei Yucheng slumped against the couch comfortably as he felt the girl's fury. After a moment of silence, he asked slowly, "In that case... Miss Lin... Are you touched by him?"

    When Pei Yucheng said 'Miss Lin', Lin Yan felt that it sounded strangely familiar.

    Lin Yan snapped back to her senses and decided that she couldn't be controlled by this fellow.

    She had no privacy whatsoever!

    A second later, Lin Yan tried her best to empty her mind. A sudden inspiration hit her and she began to recite a poem. "In the ninth year of Yonghe, at the beginning of late spring, we gathered at the Orchid Pavilion north of Kuaiji Mountain for the purification ritual... All the literate, the young, and the old congregated..."

    Pei Yucheng probed, "You really don't like him?"

    Lin Yan recited the poem dully as she tried to shut the voice out. "There are tall mountains and steep hills, dense wood and slender bamboo, as well as a limpid flowing stream reflecting the surroundings. We sit by a redirected stream with floating wine goblets. Although we lack the company of music, the wine and poems are sufficient for us to share our feelings..."

    Pei Yucheng said, "Even if you don't wish to be responsible for liking him, it's certainly considered the same."
