Chapter 434: Scared to Tears
Just like that night when she did what she did, and still he turned his back on her with such resolution.
She had self-awareness.
If it weren’t for the fact that she had taken the medicine yesterday, he might not even have laid a finger on her.
The nonsense she spoke before they did it was all so that she would have the self-awareness to leave him after that.
He only wanted one woman for himself in this lifetime.
But she was not that woman.
The only reason he was going all out to capture her now was that he wanted to get even.
Given a woman had bedded him and dumped him the very next day.
Mu Xichen was used to being the big boss, and he had a bigger ego than most people. He wouldn’t have allowed something like that to happen to himself.
She couldn’t imagine how she was going to deal with his anger if she got captured.
Besides, after what had happened yesterday, she no longer knew how to face him.
He was her first man.
Both in her previous life and in this one.
She was willing to give herself to him because she loved him.
And for that same reason, she found herself unable to face him.
A brief encounter like this might even serve to remind him that there ever was a woman who dumped him. It wasn’t so bad.
Although this was what she thought, she found no out for the grievance that had built up inside her.
It was stuck fast in her chest, and it made her sore and brought much discomfort.
Bo Chengcheng threw a side glance at her and continued driving in silence.
Li Beinian stared at the scenery outside in a trance-like state. Gradually, the boundless lush wilderness turned into a bustling and flourishing city.
Li Beinian snapped out of her dazed state and said, “Sister Bo, why were you at the airport just then?”
Bo Chengcheng almost burst out laughing.
It was about an hour’s drive from the airport back to the city, and this question only just occurred to her?
This reaction time seemed excessive.
Utterly defeated, Bo Chengcheng said, “To pick up someone.”
“And did you manage to?”
Bo Chengcheng threw her a glance. “Well, aren’t you in my car now?”
“Me?” Li Beinian was stunned. “You knew I was going to be there?”
“If I didn’t…” Bo Chengcheng’s smile widened, “how would I have successfully picked you up?”
Sensing a growing ominous premonition within, Li Beinian said anxiously, “Sister Bo, please drop me off here. I can find my own way back.”
“No way,” Bo Chengcheng said with a smile. “I have to send you right to your destination.”
Li Beinian’s heart started pounding as she looked at Bo Chengcheng with a knitted brow. “Where are we going?”
“You’ll find out when we get there,” Bo Chengcheng said as she stepped on the accelerator. “Sit tight.”
“Sister Bo, did Mu Xichen send you?”
The other woman frowned and did not reply.
Angered, Li Beinian asked again, “You’ve betrayed me?”
Bo Chengcheng laughed and said, “I get paid to do a job. I call it professional ethics.”
“F***!” Li Beinian was livid. “Even you got bought over!”
With an ever-widening smile, Bo Chengcheng took a turn at the final traffic light and then pulled to a stop.
Right next to the car, the magnificent and festive facade of a building loomed into view. The wordings on it were clear as day: Guang City Civil Affairs Bureau Marriage Registry.
Li Beinian’s heart was beating furiously now.
She said to Bo Chengcheng with a look of disbelief, “What’s the meaning of this?”
To which Bo Chengcheng gave no reply except to raise an eyebrow as she unbuckled her seat belt. “Get off the car.”
Li Beinian continued sitting there, her chest heaving, her breaths coming quick and tight.
Seeing that she was still in the car, Bo Chengcheng walked over and opened the door to the passenger seat.
Li Beinian gulped and turned around.
A tall and large-framed silhouette walked up slowly. His face was sinister and his reddish lips firmly pursed as he lowered his head to look at her.
Even without speaking, his presence gave Li Beinian a great sense of oppression, so she found herself shrinking back almost in tears.
