An Xiaxia’s pretty eyebrows creased together and she pouted. “Sheng Yize, you’re so bossy! I haven’t even said yes yet!”
“What does it matter whether you say yes or not?” Sheng Yize kept squeezing her cheeks. “You don’t like Qi Yanxi, do you?”
“No, I don’t…”
“And I don’t annoy you, do I?”
“Mhm…” Somehow, An Xiaxia felt that she was walking into a trap.
“Answer me!” Sheng Yize squeezed a little harder and An Xiaxia whined, “No, I don’t.”
Sheng Yize nodded in satisfaction while An Xiaxia looked at him with teary eyes. “Can you let go of my face…”
“No.” He denied her request mercilessly. “Just look at you. You’re hopeless in everything and a little dummy. Anyone can fool you. Aren’t your kids going to be even dumber?”
An Xiaxia was so frustrated. Was he trying to shatter her pride?
Was she really that bad?
“How does that have anything to do with becoming your girlfriend…” she asked timidly like an innocent bunny.
“Of course it does! Birds of a feather flock together. You’ll be influenced by me once you become my girlfriend and you’ll naturally become smarter.” He smiled like a scheming big bad wolf. “I can even help you improve your future kids’ gene pool!”
An Xiaxia’s cheeks flushed right away.
She had never expected to hear that from Sheng Yize!
Seeing how shy she had become, the look in Sheng Yize’s eyes softened and he said firmly, “I’m not giving you any choice this time.”
He had been too confident, thinking that with time, he and An Xiaxia would naturally become a couple.
Unfortunately, the little fool here was way too dumb. With every step he took forward, she would fall ten steps back.
Seeing her together with another guy, he had been hit with a sense of crisis the likes of which he had never experienced before.
Sheng Yize realized that he couldn’t wait anymore.
“You’re threatening me! How can you do that?!” An Xiaxia wouldn’t give in.
Sheng Yize raised an eyebrow. “Haven’t you heard about ‘getting married first and falling in love later’? If other people can do it, why can’t we start a relationship first before falling in love?”
An Xiaxia: “…”
It sounded so reasonable that she didn’t know what to say.
“But why should I become your girlfriend… My brother said he’d break my legs if I did that…” An Xiaxia began to waver.
Maybe deep down in some unknown corner, she had been stashing away her fondness for Sheng Yize.
It was only because of her temperament that she had been running away from it all this time. Now that Sheng Yize had cornered her, there was nowhere she could go.
“Because I mean it,” said Sheng Yize in a serious tone. “I’ve always meant it when I say I like you.”
Cheeks flushing and heart racing, An Xiaxia stared at his exceptionally good-looking face. She couldn’t help but be touched by his earnest words.
“I’ll protect you even if your brother wants to beat you up,” Sheng Yize went on slyly.
An Xiaxia jabbed the tips of her index fingers together. “Really…”
“Yes.” Sheng Yize smiled. “You’ll get a lot of yummy food and experience a lot of fun after becoming my girlfriend. You can take me everywhere to make you look good in front of your friends. And, I’m an excellent gamer. I can get you through all the game levels…”
An Xiaxia was struggling inside and she found what Sheng Yize said perfectly correct.
He was good, really good. What reason did she have to say no to him?
She nodded, still looking befuddled, then raised a finger. “Pinky swear!”
Sheng Yize finally got the answer he wanted and smiled in satisfaction.
She was indeed a little fool.
A little fool that he scorned… but loved so much.
