217 Lets Break Up

    Lin Yan felt a wave of relief washing over her as she trudged on with determination. "I mean... I lied about being in love with you and stalking you... That wasn't the case... I don't know you at all... I first met you when I woke up on the bed in your mansion..."

    Pei Yucheng's expression appeared as peaceful and serene as the surface of the ocean. He surveyed the girl intently as he asked, "Why did you agree to be with me?"

    Lin Yan pouted and sighed. "To stay alive... I disrespected you repeatedly. There was no way you would forgive me despite how good-tempered you are. I was afraid that my other consciousness would continue to do things to offend you. If I became your girlfriend, it wouldn't pose a problem. Hence, I decided to make the best of the situation. I'm really terribly sorry... It's all my fault..."

    Pei Yucheng's fingers tapped the table rhythmically. "You fell head over heels in love with me... You can't stop thinking about me..."

    When Lin Yan heard Pei Yucheng repeat the words she had said to him before, she felt ashamed of herself. "I was afraid that you would be angry so I made that up..."

    Pei Yucheng said softly, "Low blood pressure..."

    Lin Yan swallowed her saliva. "I went to look for you because I wanted to help Third Young Master..."

    Pei Yucheng replied, "What about tonight?"

    Lin Yan mumbled, "Tonight... Actually, Mr. Pei Nanxu called me yesterday... He asked me to call you and... ask you out tonight... I had no idea why..."

    Pei Yucheng was speechless...

    The night breeze ruffled their hair, and the night was gloomy and dark.

    After a very long time... Lin Yan finally heard Pei Yucheng respond. "So?"

    Lin Yan scratched her head and blurted aloud, "So... we... should... break up? No... Actually, we don't have to... This was a misunderstanding all along. It was just a misunderstanding... Besides, Mr. Pei, you accepted because you find me fascinating, right? You mentioned that you didn't want to get married..."

    Pei Yucheng stopped tapping his fingers and the surroundings went quiet. "Miss Lin, you have misunderstood."

    Lin Yan was bewildered. "Misunderstood?"

    Pei Yucheng remained polite as he said airily, "I said that we didn't have to get married. I didn't agree to a break-up."

    Lin Yan was dumbfounded.


    She soon collapsed into a state of bewilderment and silence.

    No matter how slow she might be in this area, she sensed that something was wrong with Pei Yucheng.

    Pei Yucheng put out his cigarette and extended the same hand, which smelled of tobacco. As he stroked the girl's face, his deep hoarse voice entered her ears. "Miss Lin... I regret it..."

    Although he addressed her in the same way, this seemed to strike a deadly blow to Lin Yan's head and cause sharp pain.

    Unconsciously, Lin Yan slapped Pei Yucheng's hand away, loathing filling her eyes.

    When she was jolted back to her senses, she realized what she had done.

    F*ck! What was wrong with her?

    "Mr. Pei, I'm sorry... I..."

    Pei Yucheng watched his hand turning red as he muttered under his breath, "Sorry. Indeed, I still can't accept..."

    "What?" Lin Yan frowned.

    The man's gaze was like a huge trap enveloping her from all corners. "I can't accept... that you're not mine..."

    "Miss Lin, I refuse to break up with you."
