319 Missing Someone Excessively

    By the time Lin Yan was jolted back to her senses, she was already in a slightly chilly embrace.

    At that moment, her world was filled with that familiar fear and mystery along with a faint whiff of tobacco...

    Although they had been dating for so long and they had kissed before... she had never been so close to Pei Yucheng before...

    That was because Pei Yucheng didn't look like a man with intense moods or emotions. Every time he seduced her, he seemed skillful and smooth. However, this hug seemed to express and reveal the man's worries and insecurities.

    Lin Yan's mind went blank because of this abrupt embrace and froze completely.

    Instinctively, she recalled what Pei Yucheng had said...

    I've fallen ill because I miss you...

    Pei Yucheng had rushed back abruptly and suddenly appeared in this storeroom. Could he...

    Could he have missed her so much that he had rushed back to see her?

    He had wanted to see her immediately, yet he'd had qualms about meeting her in public, as she didn't want anyone to know about their relationship. Thus, he had asked Pei Nanxu to... arrange a place for them to meet?

    Lin Yan was frightened by her own speculations.

    The room was so quiet that she could hear a pin drop. Only their breathing could be heard.




    A familiar, sudden sound interrupted the silence.

    Lin Yan unconsciously glanced at Pei Yucheng's watch and deduced that the watch was some kind of health detector.

    Whenever Pei Yucheng was provoked, his watch would pick up signals from his body and ring the alarm.

    When had she provoked him?

    Lin Yan became nervous and anxious when she heard the alarm. "It's... ringing... The watch is ringing... You have to... find a doctor..."

    Lin Yan tried to move but was immediately restrained.

    "It's alright. I'll be fine in a while," the man replied.

    Lin Yan was speechless...

    How could he be fine?

    Pei Yutang had claimed that his condition was serious!

    Lin Yan was anxious as she probed, "How could you be fine? Third Young Master already told me about your health. He said that you can't be provoked at all. Were you too tired during this trip?"

    Pei Yucheng fluttered his eyelids when he heard Lin Yan getting anxious. A tiny smile played at the corners of his mouth as he nodded and grunted in response.

    She knew it!

    Lin Yan was about to continue when Pei Yucheng interjected. "I've missed you excessively."

    Lin Yan was speechless...

    Pei Yucheng had both said this personally and sent her a text with the same content. However, the feeling was entirely different.

    She could still manage to compose herself when she read his text. However... this was too thrilling and exciting...

    So he had missed her so much that he had asked Pei Nanxu to arrange a secluded place for them to meet up?

    At this thought, indescribable feelings surged inside of Lin Yan.

    Before her brain could go haywire, Lin Yan steered the topic out of dangerous waters. "That... I wanted to tell you... I didn't have time... My mother, grandfather, and uncle's issues have all been resolved. Thank you."

    Pei Yucheng replied softly, "Miss Lin, you don't have to thank me. All that happened because of me."

    "But you didn't do it... It was a misunderstanding... Sorry."

    Lin Yan explained softly, "You do have the power and influence to coerce me. You can do a hundred things to make me comply. You just have to say the word. I was really agitated and angry at the time so I pushed the blame on you. However, I didn't think that..."

    Pei Yucheng finally pushed the girl gently away and asked, "Want to know why?"
