321 A Lie Becoming the Truth

    Lin Yan tried to interpret his words.

    This was a quote actually...

    "Huh? What do you mean?" Lin Yan couldn't understand.

    The moonlight was reflected in Pei Yucheng's eyes. "If you are lying to me, then lie to me for a lifetime."

    Pei Yucheng had replied as though she was the person in question...

    Lin Yan had the indescribable feeling that he had seen through her. She couldn't help but jerk violently.

    She had also understood Pei Yucheng's words this time.

    If she adapted to the circumstances and did this for a lifetime, then what would be the difference between this and a lifelong romance?

    Even if he knew this was a lie, he wouldn't care?

    How deep would his love have to be to endure that?

    Lin Yan's heart plunged as she mulled this over.

    Damn it!

    Pei Yucheng loved her deeply?

    She had gone nuts!

    "Oh... Ha ha... Actually..." Lin Yan smiled nervously and tried to clear things up. "That was my friend... This has nothing to do with me. Of course I wouldn't do something like that...

    When I initiated a breakup before, it was because I was involved in a scandal with a celebrity. I was worried that I might implicate you so I had to endure the heartbreak..."

    Pei Yucheng looked slightly amused by how flustered the girl looked. Then, he replied quietly, "Actually, adapting to the circumstances might result in another possibility."

    "What kind of possibility?" Lin Yan asked, feeling momentarily startled.

    She was curious. What other possibility could there be?

    Pei Yucheng eyed her. "A lie could become the truth."

    Lin Yan responded, "Errr..."

    She fell silent as her heart raced rapidly.

    A lie could become the truth?

    Why was she feeling guilty right now?

    Calm down!

    Everything was just a presumption!

    Lin Yan rubbed her face to calm herself down and coughed to clear her throat. "Actually, other than being worried that I would implicate you, there was another reason for the breakup..."

    Pei Yucheng didn't interrupt her as he listened patiently.

    Lin Yan reeled off, "Mr. Pei, your attitude with me doesn't seem real!"

    "Doesn't seem real..." Pei Yucheng mumbled to himself.

    Lin Yan nodded. "Yeah! The first time we met, you were so gentle and polite. Even when you got angry with me, you remained composed and restrained. After that incident, you resumed your original attitude. Even though I'm not experienced, I think that this... isn't how someone should act in a relationship..."

    Since she had already started, she decided to voice out all her doubts. "Thus, I've always felt that you were just having a fling with me out of boredom..."

    Pei Yucheng finally raised his head to gaze at the girl and muttered, "Composed and restrained..."

    Lin Yan nodded violently. "Yeah!"

    The expression in his eyes became deeper. "It looks like you're mistaken about me, Miss Lin."

    "I am mistaken?" Lin Yan blinked in confusion.

    Pei Yucheng raised the hand with the watch slowly. Then, his long fingers clasped the girl's tiny hand and interlinked with her fingers...
