Chapter 1395: She Hugged Her From Behind
As Qiao Yanze laughed, his lips started to tremble. Even his teeth were trembling. All of his blood felt like it was flowing backwards.
Both of his hands supported his forehead as his eyes turned red like he was going to start crying.
Da Zuo stood in front of Qiao Yanze, worry oozing out from his eyes at the sight of Qiao Yanze being both happy and sad at the same time. With his young master acting like that, he was really scared that Young Master’s mental state had some problems.
Qiao Yanze forced all of his tears back as he picked up Mrs Qiao’s photo. “Mom, did you see this? The person that harmed our family wasn’t the real Xiao Ying.”
It wasn’t Xiao Ying. It really wasn’t Xiao Ying!
“Mom, I really regret it now. Why didn’t I see through my feelings sooner and treat Cen Xi better?”
Hearing Qiao Yanze’s words, Da Zuo was a little confused. Recognizing his feelings now wasn’t too late for Young Master. He could still treat Miss Cen properly in the future!
Qiao Yanze put down Mrs Qiao’s photo and glanced towards Da Zuo with red eyes. “You’re not allowed to have an opinion against Cen Xi from now on. We’ve all wrongly blamed her in the past!”
After what had happened with Young Master Li, Da Zuo’s opinion against Cen Xi had been removed. Now, she had become the person he admired the second most. The first was definitely his young master.
Qiao Yanze stood up and took a few steps with slightly weak legs. “Da Zuo, prepare the car.”
Cen Xi had gone out during the day and by the time she returned to her apartment, it was already nine in the evening.
She had walked back home.
Just as she was about to arrive at her apartment, she felt a pair of eyes staring at her in the dark. She turned back to glance around her, but there was no one that looked suspicious.
Rubbing at her arm, she felt something strange appear in her heart.
Perhaps, she was being too suspicious!
Young Master Li was no longer around and everyone from the criminal syndicate had been arrested. There probably was no one left that would hurt her!
Still, Cen Xi walked with hurried steps into the apartment building.
Walking out of the elevator, she arrived in front of her apartment door. She took out her keys and got ready to open the door.
Suddenly, someone patted her slender shoulder.
Cen Xi gasped softly in fear as the keys in her hand fell onto the floor. Grabbing the pepper spray from her bag, she sprayed it intensely at the person behind her.
“Cen Xi, it’s me. What are you doing?”
Hearing the man’s hoarse voice, Cen Xi froze before she turned back. Seeing the man who was tearing and coughing nonstop from the pepper spray, Cen Xi first froze for a second before she burst out in laughter.
“Why didn’t you dodge?” With his agility, he should be able to dodge the peppery mist.
Qiao Yanze thought that she was just acting and wouldn’t really spray him. Who would have expected for her to really spray at his face?
His throat felt like it was burning and couldn’t say anymore things. He could only stare at her with red eyes.
He even looked a little pitiful.
Cen Xi knew that he felt horrible, so she hurriedly picked up her keys and opened the door.
“Go and have a wash in the washroom. Quick, wash it out.”
After Qiao Yanze washed his face and came out, he still felt rather horrible and couldn’t open his eyes.
Cen Xi filled a bowl of warm water and brought it in front of the man. She wet a towel with it before she covered his eyes with it.
“Why didn’t you message me before coming?”
“I only just arrived.”
Qiao Yanze took the towel off his eyes and stared at the girl who was crouching beside him. She had her hair tied into a ponytail. Her skin was fair and smooth as her facial features looked both cold and charming. He grabbed her wrist and pulled her into his arms.
Caught unguarded, Cen Xi fell onto his lap before she stood up hurriedly. However, in the next second, he pulled her back onto his lap.
Cen Xi glared at him. “What are you doing?”
He didn’t contact her recently and didn’t tell her to start their relationship properly. As a woman, she could tell that even though they had experienced what happened with Young Master Li and had endured life and death together, he didn’t have the plan to be with her.
She knew that what happened with her sister back then formed a strong and unsurmountable barrier between them.
She never liked to drag things on. Since they could not be together properly no matter what happened, there was no need for any beginning.
“Young Master Qiao, don’t play with me. If not, I will overthink it.”
Qiao Yanze held onto her slender waist unbudgingly. “I came to tell you something.”
Cen Xi observed him quietly and saw a faint smirk in his eyes. She could tell that he was in a pretty good mood today.
Qiao Yanze told Cen Xi what Xiao Ying had told him.
Hearing this, Cen Xi was extremely shocked.
Sister had been disfigured personally by Master Ba! Sister wasn’t the main culprit who had caused the Qiao family’s demise!
Back then, when she heard that Sister had hurt the Qiao family, she hadn’t been willing to believe that Sister would hurt an innocent man like that.
In the end, Sister didn’t disappoint her!
Seeing tears fall from Cen Xi’s eyes, softness overwhelmed Qiao Yanze’s handsome features. He grabbed the back of her head and pushed her into his arms as he hugged her tightly.
Cen Xi grabbed his shirt tightly as she buried her face into his broad shoulder. She was terribly emotional. “Sister isn’t that ruthless… Because of you, she became disfigured. She had some true feelings for you too…”
Qiao Yanze pat Cen Xi’s shivering back as he said hoarsely, “I know.”
Cen Xi cried for a long time.
Qiao Yanze did not stop her, he knew how terrible she felt.
Once her emotions slowly calmed down, Qiao Yanze let go of her. Staring at her swollen eyes, he said softly, “Please rest early. I’ll go back now.”
Cen Xi stood up from his lap. He got up and walked towards the door.
Staring at his back, Cen Xi’s heart panged unknowingly. It was as if him leaving now would mean that she would never see him again.
Cen Xi didn’t know what she was thinking. She didn’t want to see that kind of silhouette, so she rushed up and hugged him from behind.
She had always known what she wanted when it came to her feelings.
She had him in her heart and couldn’t let him go.
Sister’s issue had been explained clearly too. Why was she still suppressing her feelings?
She hugged his muscular body tightly, burying her face into his back. “I’m leaving the Capital tomorrow. Can you stay the night?”
Why did she sound like she was an irresponsible a**hole that wanted to only sleep with him?
When Cen Xi realized this, she hurriedly explained herself. “I’m going to settle some issues. Once I’m done, I will return.”
Qiao Yanze looked down at the hands hugging his waist. Behind him was the woman’s slender and lustrous figure. With their closeness, he could smell the faint fragrance exuding from her.
He pulled her hands away before he turned around and faced her seriously.
“Cen Xi, girls should be reserved and respect themselves.”
Hearing his words, a fiery ball of anger grew in Cen Xi’s heart.
