Turning around, he pressed Nian Xiaomu against the seat and lowered his eyes to look at her.
They were so close that even their breaths were entangled together.
He looked intently at her shocked face and at how her eyes were trapped in a daze.
Her long eyelashes, like a pair of butterflies, fluttered uneasily. After a while, she asked, "What are you doing, Young Master?"
"…" Yu Yuehan felt stunned by her question.
Even he did not know what he was trying to do.
Upon seeing that she was leaning into his arms, a voice in his heart told him to just do something.
At that moment, his eyes met her confused gaze, and he snapped back to his senses.
Pursing his lips, his arms that were propped by the sides of her body did not move away. Instead, his body pressed downward, and his drop-dead gorgeous face inched more closely toward her cherry lips…
Nian Xiaomu did not think that Yu Yuehan would suddenly come so close to her. She instinctively stretched her hands out to stop him, but before she could duck, he had already stopped what he was doing.
Then, the tip of his nose moved a bit, like he was sniffing out something.
Yu Yuehan glanced over at Nian Xiaomu and asked, "Did you secretly drink behind my back?"
Nian Xiaomu: "…"
He had suddenly leaned so close to her just to take a sniff to check for the smell of alcohol?
She had thought that he wanted to kiss her…
Realizing what she had actually imagined, Nian Xiaomu's face flushed red.
After stuttering incoherently for a while, she managed to string a sentence together, "I sneaked a few sips, but I didn't drink anymore after I received the text message."
Everything that happened after that, he was fully aware of.
After the reporters had left, she had been worried the whole time about if he was angry at her. She was even afraid that he might stuff her head into a wine glass in a fit of rage. There was no way she would have been so bold as to drink further.
The whole time she had been staring blankly at him…
She looked so pitiful that she might just whip a tail out and wag it at him!
"Good girl." Yu Yuehan lowered his eyes and patted her head. Then, he calmly returned to his seat.
His expression remained the same, but a small smile popped up on his face.
The frostiness around him started to dissipate.
The howling winds outside could be heard, but in the car, the atmosphere had become warm.
Nian Xiaomu reached out to touch her head and fell into a daze.
Why did she feel that his tone earlier was akin to someone coaxing a puppy?
Before she could figure out what was going on, his magnetic voice rang in her ears.
"With regard to the matter today, I will conduct a thorough investigation. In the future, just stay away from Chen Zixin."
Nian Xiaomu: "…??"
He suspected Chen Zixin?
"Young Master, President Chen Jr. isn't that sort of person. Furthermore, his cell phone was really missing. I searched the whole room." Nian Xiaomu instinctively spoke up for Chen Zixin.
If Chen Zixin had really lured her into the room, he wouldn't have been passed out on the bed by himself.
Without the two tight slaps and the glass of cold water that she had poured on him, he would have still been sleeping through all of it.
The person who had sent the text message to her clearly wanted the reporters to snap photographs of Chen Zixin and her alone in the room.
If it had been Chen Zixin, he should have cooperated with the reporters and opened the door for them instead.
"Do you have a lot of trust in him?"
Yu Yuehan turned to look at her, and the expression on his face turned grim.
Nian Xiaomu pouted as she replied, "It's not about trust. It's just that we need a valid reason to stay away from a person, right? After all, he is an important client."
Hearing this, Yu Yuehan's eyes turned away, and a flash of frost flickered across his face.
He stayed deep in thought for a few seconds, then said, "Avert suspicion!" 5 Best Chinese Romance Books of 2018 So Far
