817 Are You Curious?

    Chapter 817: Are You Curious?

    Pei Yucheng was lying on the bed with a book in his hand, staring intently at it.

    Lin Yan was speechless…

    So Pei Yucheng was there to read?

    She was a little confused. Why wasn’t he in the study?

    Lin Yan studied Pei Yucheng’s current state and decided to spend the night reading with him.

    “Aren’t you going to sleep?”

    Pei Yucheng put the book down and adjusted his spectacles.

    Lin Yan shook her head. “I’m not sleepy at all. Mr. Pei… To be honest, I’m a night owl. I don’t feel sleepy even in the morning. Staying up late has become a common occurrence for me.”

    She felt terrible all day!

    Pei Yucheng chuckled in amusement. However, he didn’t say anything else. Instead, he continued to read the book.

    “Mr. Pei, what are you reading?”

    Lin Yan couldn’t help but glance at Pei Yucheng.

    The book in his hand was weird. It didn’t seem to be a book that was sold on the market.

    It looked a little old, and there was no name on it.


    Pei Yucheng put the book down gently and grinned at Lin Yan. “Do you want to know?”

    Lin Yan was speechless…

    She didn’t really want to. She just felt awkward. She was merely trying to find a topic to talk about.

    “Try me.” Lin Yan stroked her chin.

    “Come here.”

    Pei Yucheng gazed at her quietly.

    Lin Yan contemplated this for a few seconds before walking carefully to the bed like a kitten.

    In the end, she had no choice but to lie quietly beside Pei Yucheng.

    Lin Yan realized that she had never been so close to Pei Yucheng before. Even if she had, she hadn’t been as relaxed as she was today.

    Lin Yan’s eyes darted from the book to Pei Yucheng.

    Pei Yucheng had lost his usual intimidating aura.

    He was wearing loose-fitting pajamas as he lay on the bed, he had a pair of gold-rimmed spectacles on, and he was holding a book in his hands, which made him look lazy and nonchalant.

    His looks and aura… were worlds apart.

    “Are you curious about me or about the book?” Pei Yucheng’s eyes landed on Lin Yan with a sly smile.

    “I’m curious about you…” Lin Yan blurted out.

    Pei Yucheng replied, “Really? If you’re curious about me, what do you want to know?”

    Lin Yan was speechless…

    What she wanted to know the most was why he hadn’t gone to the study instead. Why had he gone to her bed to read?

    “Mr. Pei, what kind of book are you reading?” Lin Yan tried to change the topic. She had almost been led astray by him.

    “It’s about the key.” Pei Yucheng grinned.

    “The key?”

    Lin Yan was startled.

    “The key to the human race’s evolution,” Pei Yucheng added when he noticed Lin Yan’s confusion.

    “Human evolution…” Lin Yan grinned. “That’s too far away.”

    “Is it so far away? Perhaps it happened long ago,” answered Pei Yucheng. “Do you want to know what the crux of the human race is?” Pei Yucheng pressed on.

    Lin Yan propped her chin on her hand as she fell into deep thought.

    How would she know what the crux of human evolution was? If she had known, she would have used it and become the wealthiest woman in the world!
