He couldn’t have been any more blunt. All sorts of expressions flashed across Li Fanxing’s face as she fought to keep her smile. “Yize… Even if I can’t be your girlfriend, we can still be friends… All I want is to see you and care for you from afar… I have no unreasonable expectations that you’ll think different of me. I like you and that’s none of your business…”
With that melancholy and saccharine voice, and her perfectly adjusted features, she could sweep any man off his feet.
However, Sheng Yize wasn’t just any man. He had the most ruthless tongue when he chose to use it, especially when he was in a bad mood, which was what he had at the moment. It was Li Fanxing’s unlucky day.
“Miss Li, have you been studying acting recently? Well, I’ll give you a 10 for that. 10 out of 100. I don’t care if that’ll make you cry. I know perfectly well what you want and I think you’re smart enough to know how I feel about that. Is being the firstborn of the Li family not enough for you? I see you have an unusual ambition to play this role of an innocent and pure white lotus girl.” Sheng Yize’s comments were as sharp as razor blades. “And, since it’s none of your business, do shut up. I couldn’t care less whether or not you like me. I certainly don’t give a damn about what corner you’re watching me from, but please keep your distance. I have a girlfriend now. You don’t get to play a pure white lotus and ‘the third person’ at the same time. I’m not generous like that.”
Li Fanxing’s cheeks flushed before her face turned ashen. She couldn’t keep up her performance after that. Gritting her teeth, she said, “Sheng Yize, do you have to go that far?”
Sheng Yize smiled coldly.
“With the families we’re from, you of all people should know that your affection counts for nothing. No matter how much you like An Xiaxia, can you marry her? Can you acknowledge her as your wife in public? There’s a whole family you have to consider. Do you think Uncle and Grandpa Sheng will let you bring a common girl into the family?” Li Fanxing snorted.
“Xiaxia and I will see to that. Thank you for your concern,” Sheng Yize replied indifferently, which rendered Li Fanxing speechless.
Clenching her fists, she left, strutting on her high heels and looking like a proud white swan.
On her way, she had to trudge across a cobblestone path, which gave her a lot of difficulty in her heels. There was no elegance in her gait at all. Instead, she was constantly losing her footing, and she eventually fell to the ground.
Her white Chanel bag fell open as well and a black male wallet tumbled out…
Li Fanxing picked it in a flurry and stuffed it back into her bag.
The deepest hatred flickered in her eyes.
Returning to the An family home, Sheng Yize saw that Qi Yanxi was there again. He was helping Papa An serve coffee on the first floor which chatting happily. The two almost looked like father and son.
Sheng Yize lowered his cap, walked past them, and headed upstairs.
“Hey, Sheng… Sheng Blacky, I heard you’re moving out?” Qi Yanxi almost called Sheng Yize by his real name. Fearing that the customers downstairs might recognize him, he instinctively used his old nickname.
Sheng Yize said, “… Hm.”
Qi Yanxi gloated. “Great. That’s where I come in. I’ll be Little Dummy Xia’s savior~”
“…” Sheng Yize found him ridiculous and went upstairs after calling him “nuts.”
He deliberately waited for a while on the second floor. An Xiaxia then came out after a shower, wearing her bunny pajamas. She pouted when she spotted him, brushed past him, and got a bag of chips and a coke from the fridge before going back to her room.
Sheng Yize stopped her with an arm, and An Xiaxia rolled her eyes.
“Still mad at me?” Sheng Yize asked in a low voice.
