875 Response

    Chapter 875: Response

    The two of them remained in a stalemate for about half an hour. The man’s grip on Lin Yan’s wrist began to loosen.

    Lin Yan seized this opportunity and retreated swiftly.

    She had originally wanted to leave, but she couldn’t take this lying down.

    Who knew what was wrong with this man? Would he lose control and smash the glass in his office?

    “Relax… Take a deep breath,” Lin Yan said softly after she calmed down.

    The man began to take deep breaths.

    Lin Yan approached him gingerly and placed her hand on his shoulder.

    If the man reacted too strongly, she would be able to escape instantly.

    The man didn’t react too abruptly.

    Several seconds later, Lin Yan mustered her courage and led the man to the couch.

    “Calm down. Don’t let your imagination run wild. Calm down…” Lin Yan gazed at the man as she spoke softly.

    She was familiar with this kind of thing. When she thought about it carefully, she realized that the person back home was like this sometimes.

    Lin Yan was startled when she thought of Pei Yucheng.

    Why was there something wrong with the man in front of her and Pei Yucheng?

    Would they lose control for no reason?

    Did she need to be present before they could calm down?

    However, the only difference was that Pei Yucheng’s loss of control wasn’t as serious as the state of the man before her. Ever since the incident at the bar, Pei Yucheng’s condition had been stable. Occasionally, the watch on his wrist would sound an alarm, but he would calm down very quickly. Pei Yucheng could control himself with terrifying self-control and never once lost control of himself.

    “Thank… Thank you…”

    A long time later, the man on the couch suddenly spoke, his voice slightly hoarse.

    “Boss, what’s wrong? Are you alright?” Lin Yan heaved a sigh of relief when the man regained his composure.

    “Are you alright? Did I hurt you?” The man raised his head and surveyed Lin Yan.

    Lin Yan rubbed her wrist and unconsciously glanced at the wall.

    He hadn’t hurt her. He had almost killed her.

    “Boss, I’m fine. How are you feeling? I’ll call the doctor,” replied Lin Yan.

    “No need.” The man shook his head. “It would be useless to go to the hospital. I just need you by my side.”

    “Huh?” Lin Yan glanced at the man in surprise.

    Why did his words sound so… weird?

    The man furrowed his eyebrows and shook his head vigorously. “It’s nothing. It’s an old habit… Don’t worry, it won’t happen a second time.”

    Lin Yan was speechless…

    Was this even something a human would say? Don’t worry? She had almost lost her life just now. If she wasn’t worried, her heart would be in danger.

    Her worries about these men aside, she was most worried about her own life.

    If her boss was gone, she would die.

    “Please… pour me a glass of water,” the man said after a moment of silence.

    Lin Yan surveyed her surroundings. The water dispenser had been smashed to pieces.

    Lin Yan rose and found a bottle of mineral water for the man.

    After he drank the water, the man’s expression improved.

    “Boss, what is wrong with you? Are you really not going to the hospital?” Lin Yan asked hastily.

    “It’s fine.” The man shook his head. “It’s an old habit. It can’t be cured.”

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