405 Dont Make Such a Scary Conjecture

    Lin Yan, who realized that she had been too loose-tongued, spluttered hastily, "Ahh! That was a mistake! It's not about money! I really can't do it..."

    Xing Chen became despondent at her words but he persevered. He deliberated for a moment before saying, "Miss Lin Yan, perhaps you haven't realized how important you're to Brother Yu. He really cherishes and treasures you very much. Your words are more effective than anyone else's.

    Of course, I know that you are taking a risk by helping me with this favor. I also know that you might not be able to change Brother Yu's mind. However, I'm just begging you to try... Will you? In return, I will do anything for you!"

    Xing Chen immediately bent and tried to kneel down.

    Lin Yan hurriedly grabbed his arms and cried, "Don't! I can't bear to see you beg on your knees."

    She fell silent and mulled this over for some time. "Let me try to find a suitable opportunity when Mr. Pei is in a good mood. I will try my best, but I can't promise anything..."

    Xing Chen, who was touched, yelled, "Thank you! Thank you, Miss Lin! I will do anything for you! Anything!"

    Lin Yan looked rather hesitant. "There's nothing that I need your help with. I only hope that... in the future... if I... I mean if... I break up with Mr. Pei and we end up fighting, you could help me flee..."

    Xing Chen was speechless...

    Qin Huan was speechless...

    Both of them gulped as beads of perspiration rolled down their heads.

    Qin Huan looked terrified at the thought. "Madam! My queen! Please don't make such a scary conjecture! If you are in any trouble in the future, Xing Chen and I will do anything within our means to help you!"

    Xing Chen nodded vigorously in agreement.

    Lin Yan sighed gravely. "Alright then, but don't get too hopeful too fast. I think I need some time to take care of this. You have just infuriated him, so it would only make things worse if I rushed it."

    Xing Chen nodded and replied, "We will leave it to you, Miss Lin. If you need help, you can contact me at any time."


    Worried that Pei Yucheng might overhear them, Lin Yan asked both of them to leave quickly.

    The soup was also ready.

    Lin Yan served it in a bowl after tasting it. It was a success, as it tasted quite good.

    She blinked and realized something. Since Pei Yucheng couldn't taste anything, it wouldn't matter, would it?

    Lin Yan peered at the living room cautiously before treading casually with the bowl of soup.

    Pei Yucheng was sitting on the couch in the living room.

    He had removed his jacket and was only wearing a pale blue shirt. The documents were scattered carelessly around him, and he looked rather forbidding.

    Lin Yan swallowed her saliva and took a deep breath to compose herself. Seconds later, she marched over with the bowl in her hands.

    "Mr. Pei, the soup is ready. Do you want to have it now?" asked Lin Yan.


    Pei Yucheng was about to extend his hands when Lin Yan interjected. "It's hot. Let me feed you."

    Surprise flashed past his eyes as he gazed into the girl's eyes. "Thank you, Miss Lin."
