He braced himself against a telegraph pole and emptied his stomach.
Su Xiaomo sat next to him, slapping her thigh and guffawing.
“Look! He’s so silly!”
Qi Yanxi giggled. “He is!”
Chi Yuanfeng giggled with him.
He Jiayu: These people are not my friends…
Up on the ferris wheel.
As their compartment reached the highest point, Sheng Yize wrapped An Xiaxia in his arms and they watched the fireworks together.
“Do you like it?” he asked.
An Xiaxia nodded affirmatively. Sheng Yize then held her face and kissed her full on the mouth.
It was light and gentle, as if he was handling the rarest treasure.
The romantic atmosphere reminded her of a Korean drama. Just then, her phone started to ring. She glanced at the screen and wanted to pick it up. However, Sheng Yize simply wouldn’t let go of her mouth.
She mumbled, “Hm… my dad. It’s from my dad!”
Only then did Sheng Yize let go of her reluctantly. An Xiaxia picked it up and Papa An’s mild voice came from the other end. “Your brother and I are on our way back home. You and Yize go get something to eat yourselves.”
“Alright.” An Xiaxia nudged Sheng Yize with her elbow after hanging up and suggested excitedly, “Let’s go to the hot springs ourselves sometime!”
It was a casual idea, but Sheng Yize narrowed his eyes and gave her a crooked smile. “Together?”
“Ah… hm, not in that way!” An Xiaxia glowered at him.
This fellow just couldn’t keep his lewd thoughts at bay…
Sheng Yize snorted and was going to resume kissing her when An Xiaxia’s phone rang again.
He was so frustrated that he actually thought about smashing her phone.
An Xiaxia smiled awkwardly and checked the screen. She didn’t recognize the number.
Could it be one of those telephone fraud things?
After some hesitation, she still picked it up.
The voice on the other end had been changed by a voice processor and she couldn’t tell if it was a man or a woman.
“An Xiaxia, you dad and brother are driving along No. 107 national road. Break up with Sheng Yize now, or… a truck will ‘accidentally’ crash into their car~”
An Xiaxia was flustered, but didn’t want to believe it. “Who are you? Why should I believe what you say?”
“They’ll drive past Lianzi Lake Manor in a moment… Confirm it for yourself if you don’t believe me.” The voice chuckled. “The compartment you’re riding in is bugged. Break up with Sheng Yize and the truck won’t run them over. You’ll decide whether or not your family lives.”
An Xiaxia hung up immediately and called Papa An. “Dad, where are you now?”
Papa An replied happily, “Let me check the GPS… Oh, we’re almost at that manor, the area that’s unbelievably expensive. What’s it called again?”
“Lianzi Lake Manor,” An Yibei answered for him.
An Xiaxia’s heart sank.
She hung up, licked her lips nervously, and stared at Sheng Yize.
Sheng Yize darted her a glance. “What’s wrong? Anything happened to Uncle An?”
An Xiaxia swallowed. It was just one sentence, but she found it impossible to say.
If she said it… she and Sheng Yize would be over for good.
Why would that person be so cruel…
She didn’t want to leave Sheng Yize, but she also didn’t want anything to happen to her family…
Had all those mishaps happened to her family because she had become Sheng Yize’s girlfriend?
The ferris wheel swayed a little, and before he knew it, Sheng Yize had wrapped his arms around An Xiaxia. He then heard her trembling voice. “Sheng Yize, I – I’m leaving you.”
