324 A Way We Can Meet Openly

    Pei Yucheng peered at the girl's helpless, upset expression and raised his hand to stroke her head gently. "It's fine."

    "But you..." Lin Yan glanced at Pei Yucheng's watch.

    It kept ringing shrilly...

    Based on Pei Yucheng's heartbeat and this watch's alarm, she had to admit that she could affect Pei Yucheng's emotions and mood...

    "It's alright. I'll be fine soon." Pei Yucheng reassured her.

    After a few seconds, his watch finally ceased ringing.

    The owner of the watch seemed to have suppressed all his frustration...

    Lin Yan felt guiltier when Pei Yucheng was so considerate. She blamed and chided herself silently. "Sorry. We are dating, yet you have to give in to me constantly and even meet me secretly..."

    Pei Yucheng's eyes gleamed before he chuckled lightly. "There is a way we can meet openly."

    Lin Yan asked, "Huh? What is that?"

    Pei Yucheng didn't explain. He merely said, "Go ahead."

    "Oh..." Lin Yan nodded and turned to leave.

    Pei Nanxu was standing guard a short distance away, for fear that someone might chance upon them.

    "Mr. Pei, sorry for troubling you!" Lin Yan said gratefully.

    "Big Sister-In-Law, don't stand on ceremony with me." Pei Nanxu smiled at her.

    He surveyed Lin Yan as they walked. "Big Sister-In-Law, you are doing well with my brother! He was in a rush to meet you the moment he got back. I have never seen him act like that before!"

    "Ahem... Really?" Lin Yan blushed quietly.

    "Oh yeah. My brother has punished his subordinate for acting on her own. Don't take it to heart. I'm sure it won't happen again," Pei Nanxu added.

    His brother had finally gotten back with Lin Yan, but he was afraid that Lin Yan might break up with his brother once again.

    Lin Yan frowned when she heard this. "That girl... Does she like your brother?"

    Pei Nanxu jerked and coughed. "How... could she possibly... No, it's nothing like that..."


    The intensity of that girl's longing had blazed in her eyes. She had hardly been able to conceal it.

    "Of course, she is just his subordinate." Pei Nanxu was worried that Lin Yan might misunderstand, so he explained hastily. "Let's hurry up. We can't disappear for too long..."

    Pei Nanxu and Lin Yan hastened towards the private room. They were just about to take the stairs when they bumped right into someone...

    Shen Chaomu had been standing at a corner of the deserted staircase with a cigarette.

    Pei Nanxu and Lin Yan had been walking beside each other.

    Three pairs of eyes met as they all froze.

    Pei Nanxu was speechless...

    Lin Yan was speechless...

    Shen Chaomu was speechless...

    Shen Chaomu's cigarette fell to the floor when he saw Lin Yan and Pei Nanxu coming out of this deserted corridor. He was completely shocked and stunned as he stared at them...

    What the... Lin Yan... Lin Yan and... Pei Nanxu?
