Chapter 668: What If I Love You? (14)Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
His voice was as soothing as warm water, but to An Xiaxia, those words were like a stone thrown into a lake, stirring everything up.
An Xiaxia was astonished.
Was he telling her that… he was still in love with her?
How could that be… She had been selfish and capricious when she broke up with him. She had left without looking back no matter how much he had pleaded.
If she were Sheng Yize, she would find herself abhorrent.
Her throat had gone very dry. “Heh, no more jokes.”
“I mean it.”
An Xiaxia didn’t know what to say.
Sheng Yize smiled self-mockingly. “You’re really good at trampling on other people’s feelings. Aren’t I an ideal husband for you? There’s no reason for you to reject me.”
“We aren’t right for each other!” An Xiaxia gave him that same excuse again. In order to make Sheng Yize give up on the idea for good, she used her killing move. “I already have someone I like!”
“Do you think I’ll buy that?” Sheng Yize sat up in an imposing manner. “I thought you liked Yin Qinghan, then what? Yin Qinghan likes men! Don’t tell me you think a gay man is a better choice than me!”
That rendered An Xiaxia speechless. She realized that her little tricks were all futile on Sheng Yize.
Sheng Yize was mad. He was so angry with himself.
Back then, he had lost all hope. The saying was that women in love were all fools. But as it turned out, men in love were no better.
An Xiaxia’s determination had hurt him badly and he had been misled about the relationship between An Xiaxia and Yin Qinghan. Carried away by his rage, he had decided to put An Xiaxia aside for good.
Other people had gathered information on An Xiaxia for him, but he hadn’t been able to bring himself to look at it. Instead, he had put all his energy into business, and finished a double degree in finance and management. In the end, he still couldn’t let it go and read the file on An Xiaxia.
As it turned out, after that interaction, Yin Qinghan had never crossed paths with An Xiaxia again!
The decisive and merciless President Sheng had then sulked alone at home. He had wanted to go to An Xiaxia, but was too afraid to do so.
He was scared.
He was scared that it would only end up as painful as the last time and leave him utterly despised for the rest of his life.
He had thought about giving up, but couldn’t bring himself to do so. After so many years, he had finally made up his mind. Whatever reason she had back then, he would have An Xiaxia back in his arms!
An Xiaxia repeated, “I have someone I like now and that’s not you.”
She climbed onto the bed, looking very calm and innocent. Sheng Yize gritted his teeth in vexation.
He climbed on top of her and pinned her down. “So what?! You’re mine and I’m the only one you’re going to marry!”
An Xiaxia kept her face emotionless. “How long do you want to do this? Sheng Yize, do you know why you’re like this? The unattainable ones are the best — that’s what it’s like for you. If you want me that much, fine, take me. Let’s get it over with! Then we’re even!”
She began to unbutton her hospital gown with trembling fingers, soon revealing her fair collarbones and her smooth skin, and her bosom was going to show next…
Sheng Yize grabbed her hands and stopped her, his voice hoarse. “What the hell are you doing?”
An Xiaxia blinked, her bright black eyes very clear. Sheng Yize stared back at her.
A moment later, he pushed her away in disgust. “I see you’ve picked up a few things. You know how to seduce a man now! You make me sick!”
He rose to his feet and walked out, leaving An Xiaxia behind, alone in the ward.
An Xiaxia buried her face in the duvet, acting as if she couldn’t care less.
Despite the calm face she had put on just then, she was shaking uncontrollably now.
