617 Why Would He Like Her?

    When the cold hand landed on Lin Yan's thigh, Lin Yan felt as though a bolt of electricity had coursed through her body. Trembling badly, she stole a glance at Pei Yucheng.

    The room was dim and there was a coffee table before them. Hence, no one saw Pei Yucheng's hand on her thigh.

    Lin Yan's heart was pounding madly against her chest and she didn't even dare to breathe loudly.

    If someone were to spot them, everything would be exposed...

    Pei Yucheng studied Lin Yan's terrified expression quietly.

    "Where are you going?" His voice was heard only by the two of them. Meanwhile, his hand remained on Lin Yan's thigh as he tilted his head to look at her.

    Lin Yan was close to crying as she surveyed the surroundings. Hastily, she answered under her breath, "Ahem... Nowhere... I'm not going anywhere... I didn't think of anything... I'll go wherever you go!"

    Pei Yucheng didn't expose her lie yet he pressed on. "Why didn't you reply to my text?"

    "Huh? Text?" Lin Yan stammered softly, "You texted me? Sorry! Sorry! I didn't see it!"

    Pei Yucheng asked, "Have you been busy recently?"

    Lin Yan coughed. "Not really... I found a part-time job... So I went to an interview."

    Pei Yucheng probed, "Really? What kind of company is hiring you?"

    Lin Yan was speechless...

    She was so exasperated that she felt like crying.

    Boss! Stop talking to me! You're giving our relationship away!

    However, she didn't have the courage not to reply to him. Therefore, she muttered softly in answer to his questions as she stole glances at Pei Nanxu, pleading with him to save her.


    Pei Nanxu was seated next to them, so he naturally heard their conversation. After he caught Lin Yan's eye, he turned his head away... He was avoiding Lin Yan completely.

    Lin Yan was speechless!

    No! He had summoned the boss here and now he was leaving her in the lurch...

    Her beloved idol's flawless image had cracked...

    Pei Yucheng had a habit of tapping his fingers rhythmically as he pondered. Hence, his fingers were tapping against Lin Yan's thigh now.

    Every tap of his fingers sent a jolt to Lin Yan's heart.

    After several rounds of toasts, everyone became less tense and the atmosphere lightened up.

    A girl's soft voice interrupted them.

    "President... President Pei... I'm Zhong Xuening, an actress managed by Summit Entertainment."

    The girl who had just spoken was a very popular artist. She was very pretty in her white dress and had cleverly revealed her beautiful collarbones and accentuated her tiny waist. She appeared to be innocent yet alluring at the same time.

    Another girl with luxurious long curls stood beside Zhong Xuening. She was her younger sister, who was also a popular artist. Her name was Zhong Xiaowei.

    Zhong Xiaowei seemed to be livelier than her sister, Zhong Xuening.

    One was gentle and demure, while the other was lively and adorable. This pair of sisters was pleasing to the eye.

    They were practically the dream girls of many men...

    Lin Yan couldn't help but admire them with a sigh. There was no doubt that they were managed by Summit Entertainment. They possessed so much beauty that even she was attracted to them!

    She reckoned that many ravishing beauties would have thrown themselves into the arms of Pei Yucheng.

    Thus, she was puzzled by a question. Since Pei Yucheng was used to seeing these standards of beauty, why would he like her?
