Chapter 940: He Didn’t Come Back (1)

Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations

“Where are you going?” Sheng Yize narrowed his eyes as he instantly turned intimidating.

“It’s. None. Of. Your. Business!” said An Xiaxia, stressing each word. She then pushed him out of her way and headed for the door.

Frowning, Sheng Yize dragged her back, slammed the door shut, and pinned her to it!

“An Xiaxia, stop this nonsense!” There was anger in his voice.

Digging her fingernails into her palms, An Xiaxia felt aggrieved and helpless.

Why did he think that she was being nonsensical?

He had lied to her and cast her away in a foreign country, and he thought that was totally fine?

Alright. She would be reasonable now.

An Xiaxia blinked and decided to play dumb. She stopped talking altogether.

Seeing that she had stopped struggling, Sheng Yize rubbed his temples. “Don’t be mad at me, ok?”

An Xiaxia ignored him.

Sheng Yize was a little flustered. He knew very well that he was in the wrong this time.

But everything had happened so suddenly and he hadn’t been able to think of a better way than this.

He rubbed An Xiaxia’s head and asked, “Are you hungry? What would you like to eat?”

An Xiaxia lowered her head and focused on cleaning her nails, acting as if Sheng Yize wasn’t there.

“Actually… Pepsi was…” Before he could continue, his phone began to ring.

His assistant said in a shaky voice on the other end, “Mr. Sheng… you’ve received something in your work email… It’s about, well, I don’t know how to describe it. I’ll forward it to your personal email. Please have a look…”

There was a notification of an incoming email a few seconds later.

Sheng Yize tapped it open and quickly skimmed it, his face darkening as he scrolled down.

Tossing his phone away in agitation, he recalled An Xiaxia’s unusual reaction. “Has someone told you or sent you something?”

No! She wouldn’t talk to him!

Sheng Yize snapped, “Have they?”

An Xiaxia’s soft voice sounded aggrieved. “Why are you yelling at me…”

Sheng Yize paused, then sighed. “I’m sorry.”

He was just so worried…

If An Xiaxia knew about it… she would definitely leave him, wouldn’t she?

As that idea flashed through his head, Sheng Yize grabbed her wrist and threw her on the bed.

An Xiaxia’s eyes were misty with tears. She wanted to run away, but couldn’t break free.

His gentle, light kisses landed on her face. Sheng Yize sucked her earlobe and his voice was soft and loving. “Pepsi was unwell a few days ago… She had to go through a minor operation. I didn’t want you to worry, so I lied to you… and sent you here. The doctor said you’re not in great shape yourself. I didn’t want to upset you. You might have broken down when you saw the procedure, and collapsed yourself before Pepsi did…”

An Xiaxia’s eyes were wide open. “You…! How’s Pepsi now?”

“She’s great. Everything went well.” Sheng Yize kissed her on the forehead. “If you’re still mad, how about I let you beat me up?”

By now, An Xiaxia couldn’t stay angry at Sheng Yize anymore. It was obvious that Sheng Yize had done this for her own good. She seemed to be the petty one now that everything had been explained.

However, the thing Lan Yu had told her, could it be true?

An Xiaxia asked Sheng Yize tentatively, “Sheng Yize, if one day, I did some unforgivable things to you, will you hate me?”

Sheng Yize arched his eyebrows. “What have you done?”

“I haven’t! It’s just a figure of speech!” An Xiaxia shouted.

Rubbing his chin, Sheng Yize said in a pensive voice, “Of course I’ll need some sort of compensation for it. Paying with your body is a nice choice. I suggest you consider it.”

“…” You animal!
