632 I Thought That You Had Fallen For Me

    Chu Jiayao swallowed his saliva and probed cautiously, "Nanxu, how is your brother's relationship with Lin Yan? Do you reckon... you will have another sister-in-law?"

    Pei Nanxu glanced at Chu Jiayao, his eyes filled with sympathy. "I don't think so. My brother has never liked a girl so much."

    Chu Jiayao exclaimed, "What? Boss' expression..."

    Was there really a problem?

    "So do you think I can still be saved after offending my lady boss?' Chu Jiayao asked, looking dismayed.

    Pei Nanxu gazed in the direction of Lin Yan and Big Brother, who were walking away. "I can't guarantee anything."

    Given Lin Yan's character... everything should be fine.

    However, he couldn't be entirely certain now.

    Lin Yan's attitude had surprised him very much.

    Every time Big Brother was around, she always seemed so meek. However... Today, she had become really aggressive.

    ...

    The car traveled smoothly on the road.

    Lin Yan had calmed down by now.

    She stole careful glances at the man beside her as she marshaled her thoughts. She then explained carefully, "Hmmm... Mr. Pei... I... was really angry just now... because they had ulterior motives that concerned you... Hence... I lost control... and said that stuff..."

    Pei Yucheng scrutinized the girl. "Really?"

    He paused and then suddenly asked, "Why were you angry?"

    Lin Yan blurted out without thinking, "Because you're my boyfriend! I would certainly be angry if a girl tried to seduce you!"

    Pei Yucheng's eyes sparkled when he heard her saying that he was her boyfriend.

    "Miss Lin, are you still putting up an act now? Or are you being serious?" The man's deep voice echoed in the car.

    "Huh?" Lin Yan's heart thudded violently when she heard Pei Yucheng.

    What the... How could Pei Yucheng be so observant?

    Her heart raced rapidly as she panicked. She blinked and tried to force herself to calm down as she replied in a rush, "Huh? What do you mean? An act? There is no act! My feelings are real!"

    Pei Yucheng chuckled, as he had no wish to expose her. "Miss Lin, your actions have created some misunderstandings."

    Lin Yan was bewildered. "Misunderstandings?"

    Pei Yucheng replied softly, "I thought that you had fallen for me."

    Lin Yan was speechless...

    She received a huge shock and choked violently.

    Why would she feel guilty now?

    How could this be? She was merely trying to stay alive by being with Pei Yucheng!

    When had this relationship developed?

    But so what if her feelings had changed? It was a miracle that she'd had the determination to stay away from such a flawless man until now...

    Pei Yucheng didn't probe anymore. He only glanced at the girl's leg. "Is your leg still hurting?"

    "Huh? Oh, it's not hurting anymore..."

    Lin Yan felt puzzled after she answered. How could Pei Yucheng know that her leg was hurting?

    Perhaps he had casually asked since he knew about her old injury.

    "Sorry I couldn't be with you on Valentine's Day." Pei Yucheng apologized sincerely.

    Lin Yan dismissed this with a frantic wave. "It's fine! It's really fine!"

    Although it had been an eventful Valentine's Day, she had spent it well.

    Even though the other consciousness wouldn't leave her alone... it had helped her endure the pain of a jab...
