388 Admitting Defea

    Did she regret this?

    Of course she regretted it! How could she not?

    However, she would rather die than admit it right now.

    Pei Yucheng had been fine earlier. Why would he suddenly lose control?

    Was it because of a nightmare?

    As the saying goes, when one thinks of something in the day, one will dream of it at night. Had something triggered him off? Was that why he had a nightmare?

    Or perhaps... he had found out that she had hidden the poster? On both occasions?

    She couldn't be... that... unlucky, right?

    Lin Yan had no time to mull this over, as her life was at stake now. She blinked and feigned ignorance. "Huh? Regret what? What do you mean?"

    Pei Yucheng tightened his grip on the girl's hand and flipped her hand over so that his hand covered hers. In a hushed whisper, he opined, "You regret coming to me... Regret that I dragged you to hell."

    The man's deep voice, coupled with his aloof stare, was like a metal chain that wound around her, dragging her into the depths of darkness...

    Lin Yan was speechless...

    She had regretted it indeed. However, since he had the ability and charm to lure her in, she could only admit defeat.

    Lin Yan coughed softly and raised her tiny face. With an earnest expression and a smile, she replied, "How could that be? With you around, even an empty desert would be like an oasis to me! You're a lake teeming with wonders and the warm sun at the summit of a snowy mountain! You're the stars in the endless night sky!"

    She had never imagined that the acting skills she had learned would one day save her life.

    What had she learned from this?

    One needed to work and study hard. The more one learned, the more skilled one would become!

    She needed to improve herself so that she could evolve and adapt to this ever-evolving, increasingly difficult boss!

    Under immense pressure, Lin Yan eased into her persona easily. She met the man's eyes and looked at him earnestly. "Besides, so what if this is hell? Why would it matter? I have you!"

    Pei Yucheng's eyes flickered as he listened quietly to the girl. Then, he sank into a seemingly complex, deep reverie.

    He had never once dreamed of hearing the girl say this. Dreaming of this would have been an extravagant hope...

    To think that one day, he would hear it with his own ears...

    As long as he was with her...

    So what if this is hell? Why would it matter? I have you!

    Her words rang and echoed in his ears like a glass of poisoned wine. He knew it was poisoned, yet he wanted to taste it again to quench his thirst and longing...

    Pei Yucheng looked dazed for a long time. He bowed his head and gave her a tiny smile as he muttered inaudibly to himself.

    Little liar...

    Lin Yan, who didn't catch what the man said, probed carefully, "Huh? Mr. Pei... What did you say? I didn't hear you..."

    "Miss Lin, you don't have to be so nervous..." Pei Yucheng chuckled softly as he grasped her hand gently. "No matter what lie you spin, I will believe you."

    "Pfft... Cough, cough..." Lin Yan spluttered and choked on her saliva violently. She hurriedly expounded, "No... no, no! I didn't lie! Everything I said is true and comes from my heart!"

    Pei Yucheng muttered, "Yeah, I do believe you."

    Lin Yan was speechless...
