201 Do You Feel So Safe With Me?

    Lin Yan had no choice but to sit down on the couch. Then, she picked up another cushion to cover her bag.

    This meal really made her feel like... breaking up.

    When could she leave?

    As Lin Yan sat restlessly, the minutes felt like an eternity.

    Finally, she heard familiar footsteps behind her. A shadow was cast over her, accompanied by a whiff of tobacco.

    Pei Yucheng stood before her before kneeling down slowly in front of her.

    Lin Yan was speechless!

    This... This pose...

    As a girl with nerves of steel, she was always indifferent whenever she watched romantic scenes of a man proposing as he knelt before a woman.

    However, when Pei Yucheng suddenly knelt down in front of her, she felt as though something was charging recklessly inside her heart.

    What... What was going on?

    Pei Yucheng wasn't looking at her. Instead, he was looking at her left knee.

    He stretched his hand and pressed his palm against her thigh.

    Instinctively, Lin Yan shrank back and tried to move her leg.

    Pei Yucheng said, "Don't move."

    Lin Yan was speechless...

    She froze instantly.

    Soon, she watched as Pei Yucheng rolled her pants up to her knees.

    Perhaps she had overworked herself today. Her leg and knee were a little swollen and red.

    Lin Yan's expression faltered when she saw her left knee.

    That horrific accident would have been fatal if it had happened to someone else. She had been extremely lucky to survive.

    Thanks to her ability to heal quickly, as long as she didn't die, her leg would be able to recover fully.

    After Pei Yucheng rolled up her pants, he took a white porcelain bottle and poured out some greenish liquid on his palm. Then, he pressed his palm against her leg and slowly massaged it...

    Lin Yan was startled by his actions.

    She had raced today and gotten involved in a fight. In fact, after the race, her leg had already been aching. However, she hadn't revealed it or mentioned it.

    Even Pei Yutang hadn't been able to tell.

    How could Pei Yucheng know about the pain in her leg? Furthermore, he had even found the right spot...

    The cooling sensation soon turned warm thanks to his palms. The pain gradually subsided as he massaged her leg.

    She had gotten used to the pain long ago and never once complained...

    As Lin Yan watched the man massage her leg in silence, she had an indescribable feeling...

    The living room was quiet, and so was the night sky beyond the windows.

    Pei Yucheng stopped massaging her after around ten minutes. As he continued to kneel on one knee, he extended his hand slowly to pull up her shirt slightly.

    He put some ointment on his palm once more and began to massage the right side of her waist.

    Lin Yan was shocked once more.

    This was one of the areas where she had been injured during the accident that had almost caused her to get paralyzed from the waist down. Fortunately, she was able to recover faster than a normal person. Hence, she had narrowly avoided becoming crippled. Her old injury didn't cause her much discomfort, except when she overexerted herself sometimes.

    This man... How did he know everything about her?

    Did he live inside her body?

    Lin Yan sat there quietly without moving an inch.

    Just as her thoughts started to run wild, Pei Yucheng said, "Remove your jacket."

    Lin Yan unconsciously obeyed. "Oh... Okay."

    While Pei Yucheng watched the girl do everything so obediently, he chuckled softly to himself. He raised his head once more and gazed at the girl with a mixture of emotions whirling in his eyes. "You're so obedient... Do you feel so safe with me?"

    Lin Yan coughed gently to clear her throat and replied immediately, "Of course I do! Mr. Pei, you're such a gentleman with proper manners and dignity! How could I not trust you?"

    "Miss Lin..."

    Pei Yucheng's long-fingered hand caressed her waist lightly as he paused. The depths of his eyes darkened as he asked, "Who told you that I'm a gentleman?"
