I heard that you like me?
Bai Weiwei was immediately stupefied. Who said that?
System: “The excitement level is rising. If you increase the stimulation, I’m all ready to fish up the life value. I can fish up several days’ worth.”
When Bai Weiwei heard this, she immediately rolled up her sleeves and devoted herself to her task.
Whoever said that is a good person. She should give them a silk banner1.
She took a deep breath, then looked up, revealing a smile full of deep affection. She said: “Yes…”
Ye Yuxuan took a huge step forward. He grabbed her arm and pushed her against the wall in a kabedon2 position!
Bai Weiwei’s smile stiffened, and surprise flashed in her eyes.
He had already lowered his head. A few strands of black hair fell across his eyes, bringing about a shadowy and dark feeling.
“Tell me the truth.”
Her expression changed too slowly. Whether it be her red face from restraining her anger or her smile, it was all forced out.
He didn’t like it.
Bai Weiwei’s lips twitched. She looked up, unusually calm.
She spoke the truth: “Let me go.”
She felt as though Ye Yuxuan’s body completely enveloped her.
He grabbed her shoulder, one hand still leaning against the wall next to her ear. It was an extremely dominating posture.
She didn’t like him.
Ye Yuxuan’s expression remained calm from beginning to end, but hearing her words, his breathing became chaotic.
His hand gripped her more tightly, and his lashes trembled. His voice was somewhat strained as he said: “You like me.”
Was this a question? Or was it a declaration?
Bai Weiwei earnestly reflected on her acting. Were her skills not good enough?
Or were her expressions falling behind3?
She blinked, suddenly smiling shyly. Then, she closed her eyes and didn’t speak.
Naturally fresh and pure without being pretentious.
But Ye Yuxuan’s face was paralyzed. “Is it that difficult to answer? Then I’ll answer it for you.”
Bai Weiwei’s shy smile quivered. Could someone answer for her whether she liked him or not?
Ye Yuxuan’s indifferent expression didn’t change in the slightest. Only his deep and profound eyes stared at her.
Then his thin lips moved: “You forced a kiss on me6.”
Bai Weiwei: No comment.
The light in his eyes flickered, and his expression changed subtly. “You took off your clothes for me to see.”
Bai Weiwei: This… seemed correct.
Ye Yuxuan paused for a few seconds, his voice sinking slightly. “But you don’t like me.”
Bai Weiwei looked up with watery eyes, filled with a dense haze and something like affection.
“No, I actually really like…”
A long and thin finger pressed against her soft lips.
Bai Weiwei’s lashes trembled. She could clearly see that Ye Yuxuan’s eyes were deep, but with a hint of heat.
His voice was slightly hoarse, and his words were restrained and cold. “No, you don’t like me.”
She was silent, seeming somewhat upset. Her brows were slightly furrowed, and her lips darkened as she couldn’t help but bite them.
But her gaze was still bright, as though she were carefully churning through some unknown thoughts.
Ye Yuxuan’s eyes softened.
Suddenly, Bai Weiwei stood on tiptoe.
Ye Yuxuan was stunned. He could clearly see the indifference in her eyes, but he didn’t move away.
He could only hear his heart thumping, as though something heavy pounded in his chest.
His lips trembled.
The corners of her eyes were slightly red, and the smile at the corners of her mouth could hook people in.
Ye Yuxuan looked at her with a tense expression, breathing heavily.
Bai Weiwei spoke softly next to his lips. “If this isn’t real like, then what do you think like is?”
