The Reborn Young Master’s Pampered Cousin (49)
When he saw Bai Weiwei desperately shrink back, he stretched out a foot and fiercely stepped down on the corner of her skirt.
Rendering her immobile.
Then he crouched down and gently held her face.
In the shadows, his fingers wiped the tears in the corners of her eyes. His voice was low and dull.
“Why did you save me?”
Bai Weiwei’s lips trembled, and her apricot eyes were round, just like a weak little kitten. It aroused one’s tender affections and also made one wish they could lock her up.
Qi Chimu’s gaze darkened.
His hands also grew rough.
He repeated, “Why did you save me?”
Bai Weiwei was clearly terrified, yet she still stubbornly replied, “Who’s saving you, I just… just wanted to kill him, and save myself.”
If the big bear bandit killed Qi Chimu.
The second one to be killed would be her.
But Qi Chimu didn’t believe it. He gave her a twisted smile. “You like me ba, isn’t it because you like me.”
Bai Weiwi went slack, then immediately shook her head. “I don’t, no, impossible.”
Three consecutive denials.
But Qi Chimu didn’t say anything, only ruthlessly wiping away her tears with his fingers.
He sneered, but he didn’t make any mocking remarks.
Then he firmly gripped her wrist and pulled her up from the ground. “Let’s go ba, they’ll catch up soon.”
Saying this, he dragged her along, heedless of her slow pace, and quickly entered the dark forest.
Bai Weiwei stumbled after him. She was truly unable to keep up, and she wanted to twist herself free from his grip.
But she discovered that his hand kept a tight grip, as though he regarded her as a possession and wouldn’t tolerate her escape.
Bai Weiwei’s knee was injured, and the throbbing pain made it unbearable.
She timidly cried out, “It hurts…”
The voice was weak, not at all domineering like in the past.
Qi Chimu’s footsteps paused. Then he continued walking without looking back, but his pace was a little slower.
【Ding, male lead’s favorability: 25.】
Bai Weiwei gritted her teeth. These five points of favorability didn’t come easily.
Her feet were going to fall off.
When they managed to spot a river, Qi Chimu finally explained, “Follow the river, and you’ll be able to see the public road.”
With their identities, they could be saved once they reached the public road.
Bai Weiwei had no choice and could only force herself to follow him.
Although Qi Chimu’s strength was average, he had suffered hardship and had excellent endurance.
He could walk straight until dawn and reach the public road without any problems.
But Bai Weiwei was dying. Her character setting was also not the kind that suffered hardship.
If she truly did smoothly follow him to the public road it would be strange if Qi Chimu didn’t suspect that her core had been switched out.
More importantly, the favorability needed to be brushed up.
Take advantage of the fact that the mini tasks were not showing up to make things happen and f*ck her over. Hurrying to brush up the favorability was the right thing to do.
Especially since Qi Chimu was too cruel.
On top of his poor physical strength, his physical fitness wasn’t good.
With that personality and temperament, he blackened into a proper demon king.
She hadn’t brushed up on much of his favorability, and she felt like she would be killed by him at any time.
So when Bai Weiwei saw a pit, she immediately–without a second glance, without any hesitation–very naturally stepped in it.
With this step, she honest-to-goodness fell forward.
She didn’t even need her face anymore. This fall would likely leave her with a few bruises on her face.
Startled, Qi Chimu almost instinctively reached out to catch her.
As a result, he was overpowered by the momentum.
Qi Chimu fell to the ground, and Bai Weiwei fell into his arms.
He coughed several times, gasping in pain.
“You…” he gave her a harsh glare.
And he discovered that she was lying on his chest, her black pupils looking at him with a mix of wretchedness and horror.
She seemed to know she had made a mistake and said somewhat fearfully, “My foot hurt, it wasn’t on purpose.”
