Chapter 1415: Get Her to Scram

Qiao Yanze stared at Cen Xi’s hand that was holding his.

Emotions surged in his eyes, though very quickly, his eyes darkened like an awakening wild beast. With struggling and sadness in them, he pushed her hand away hurriedly.

“Are you scared? Or is your heart still aching for me?”

She couldn’t see him, but she could hear the clear derision in his tone. His expression under the mask must be extremely cold as well. He walked in front of her and crouched down, as he reached out to pinch her chin hard. “Don’t you think you’re very fake in saying such words against your mind? Even I find myself revolting like this, yet you’re saying that you’re not scared?”

He chuckled lowly. Because of the drug’s effects, not only did his appearance change, his voice became really hoarse as well. “You said that you had feelings for the ordinary Qiao Sen in the past. If Qiao Sen became like this, would you still grow feelings for him?”

His grip on her chin was extremely strong. His eyes were terribly red as well, like an angered beast as he growled and shouted, “I don’t need your pity or empathy. I don’t need you to feel guilty either. If you’re not going to scram, I will!”

By now, he had already lost control of his emotions. In his heart, he was afraid that he would do something really extreme if he continued to stay with her.

He stood up, turning and leaving hurriedly.

Cen Xi stopped him once more, the urge to cry overwhelming her. “I won’t scram. I will use my actions to prove that my words are sincere!”

He pushed her hand away once more, not wanting to speak to her again as he left with large strides.

Cen Xi fell on the floor, her palm pressing onto a prickly branch and it started to bleed. However, compared to her physical pain, her heart was the one that was hurting more!

What must she do for him to believe her?

Qiao Yanze only dared to stop when he was far enough from Cen Xi. He pressed a hand against his clenching heart and glanced back.

His expression also broke under the mask. He knew how much his words hurt her. He didn’t feel too good either!

Even if she said that she wasn’t afraid, she was still a girl in her twenties. How could she really not be afraid?

Right now, he was a monster.

He was a monster that everyone would be afraid of.

Qiao Yanze clenched his hands into fists as his slender figure trembled slightly. He looked away and started to walk down the mountain.

The reason why he had chosen to die alone quietly was because he didn’t want the people he cared about most to see how ugly and terrible he looked. However, he had already shown his ugliest and most disgusting side to her just now.

At first, when he saw his changed appearance and the ugly green vein, he felt so disgusted that he couldn’t eat for two days. With his current condition, there was no way the two of them could spend time together nicely.

Qiao Yanze returned to the school and approached the principal, requesting to leave once more. The principal said hesitatingly, “There are still two children that haven’t come to school…”

“I’ll go and convince their parents later. I should be able to convince them by today. I will leave after that.” Qiao Yanze stared at the principal. “Please do not tell this to Miss Cen.”

Cen Xi had donated some money to the school, so the principal saw her as their VIP. He understood that she made him stay back intentionally the previous time.

Qiao Yanze left the principal’s office and Da Zuo and Xiao Zuo hurriedly approached him.

Seeing that Qiao Yanze had lost so much weight, Xiao Zuo’s eyes instantly turned red. “Young Master, can you go back to the Capital with us? A miracle might happen!”

A miracle?

Qiao Yanze had no hopes anymore.

He knew his body well, he didn’t have much longer to live.

Once his green vein grew a little thicker, his veins would explode. He would look a hundred times worse than he did now once he died. After all these months, he had already thought through it all. If his life came to an end, he would set himself on fire to die.

“The two of you, protect Cen Xi well in the future.” With that said, he left.

After Qiao Yanze visited the two families that weren’t willing to send their children to school, it was already evening by the time he returned to the school. The weather changed often recently and when he returned, it had started to rain again.

When he arrived at the field and saw Da Zuo and Xiao Zuo, who were drenched from head to toe, Qiao Yanze asked hoarsely, “What are you doing?”

“Young Master, Miss Cen is missing.”

Qiao Yanze’s eyebrow twitched as his hand on the umbrella tightened unconsciously. “What do you mean?”

“We thought that Miss Cen was resting in her room in the afternoon and didn’t dare to disturb her. When it was time for dinner, we went up to call her but found out that she wasn’t in her room. We tried calling her but her phone was turned off.”

The umbrella Qiao Yanze was holding fell to the floor. Freezing cold rainwater fell on his head, drenching him from head to toe instantly. He went forward and grabbed Da Zuo’s collar. “What do you mean by she’s missing?”

“We searched everywhere for her for the past hour, but we still couldn’t find Miss Cen.”

Qiao Yanze’s heart clenched unconsciously.

“Did you look for her behind the mountain?”

“We did.”

Qiao Yanze let go of Da Zuo and took the torchlight from him. He walked towards the back of the mountain hurriedly.

Da Zuo and Xiao Zuo froze before they followed behind him. With the heavy downpour of rain, a mud avalanche could happen at any time. They might all be in danger if this went on.

The more Qiao Yanze thought about it, the more worried he got. It had been a few hours since he left in the afternoon.

Could it be that she had been staying in the mountain?

With the rain, it wasn’t easy to walk in the mountain, but he didn’t dare to stop.

Very quickly, he arrived at the large stone he sat on in the afternoon.

But he couldn’t see Cen Xi.

“Cen Xi!” He shouted hoarsely.

Fear started to spread from the bottom of his heart. He was afraid that something would happen to her and he wouldn’t be able to see her again anymore.

When he found her, he would definitely scold her properly! She knew that the weather changed often in mountainous areas, why didn’t she leave in time?

After searching for nearly half an hour, finally, a weak sound responded to him after shouting her name once more.

Qiao Yanze froze. He hurriedly regained his senses and walked towards where that voice came from.

After Qiao Yanze left, Cen Xi had walked deeper into the mountain.

She wanted to vent her emotions and shout out loud. However, she didn’t expect to step on open space when she was going down and fell and sprained her ankle. Her leg hurt terribly and she couldn’t stand up even if she wanted to.

In the end, she decided to just sit there and see if Qiao Yanze would come and find her.

However, she had messaged Da Zuo and Xiao Zuo beforehand, so she wasn’t really missing.

When Qiao Yanze found Cen Xi, she was sitting in a bush of wild grass. She was drenched from head to toe and looked terribly haggard. She no longer looked as beautiful and youthful like she did when she came in the afternoon.

Seeing him approach her, she wrapped her arms around her knees and buried her face in her arms, not even glancing at him. However, her slender shoulders were trembling slightly.

Seeing how weak and helpless she looked in the heavy rain, Qiao Yanze’s heart instantly softened.

He walked in front of her and crouched down. Raising a hand, he patted her trembling shoulder. His pat was very light, afraid that he would shock and hurt her.

Cen Xi slowly looked up and their eyes met. She reached a hand out and took off his mask.

He tried to block her, but was unsuccessful.

After she took off the mask, she remained silent as she wrapped her arms around his shoulders. Pulling him forward, she pressed her lips against his.
