Chapter 16 She Was the One Who Had Taken Advantage of Him
Pei Nanxu looked as if he had something to say. However, he stopped himself in time when he saw his older brother looking impatient.
“Miss Lin, you don’t have to thank me. It’s nothing worth mentioning. I have something going on, so I shall get a move on.”
Thus, he uttered an excuse and left to avoid being a hindrance.
Deep down, Pei Nanxu was amazed and shocked. He realized that his brother was especially good-tempered when Lin Yan was around. He had even seen a rare smile on his face…
After Pei Nanxu left, Lin Yan hastily spoke up as she glanced at Pei Yucheng. “Mr. Pei, I’m so sorry. You helped me last night, yet I did something disrespectful to you. I’ve offended you because my mind was befuddled by alcohol. I wouldn’t dare to do it again. Please forgive me this time…”
Lin Yan was a little jittery when she finished speaking, as she had no idea how Pei Yucheng would react.
Pei Yucheng was a man of a certain status, power and wealth. If he really wanted to make things difficult for her, she wouldn’t be able to do anything.
Actually, as a girl, she would have been taken advantage of under normal circumstances. However, the other party had been Pei Yucheng…
No matter how she tried to explain this, she was the one who had taken advantage of him.
When Pei Yucheng heard her plea, his gaze turned thoughtful. “I hope so,” he replied softly.
Lin Yan, who saw that he didn’t have any intention of pursuing the matter, heaved a sigh of relief. “Please don’t worry. I will never appear before you again!”
Pei Yucheng narrowed his eyes dangerously when he heard her. However, this reaction was fleeting.
Pei Yucheng’s eyes scanned the girl, who looked determined. “Since you have assured me, Miss Lin, I can rest easy. I’ll get the chauffeur to take you back.”
Lin Yan’s first instinct was to reject his offer. However, a moment later, she changed her mind. In hindsight, there wouldn’t be any public transport available in the vicinity. It was too expensive to take a cab, and she was broke. She should save money whenever she could.
“Then… thank you!”
It looked like she’d had the wrong idea about Pei Yucheng. She hadn’t expected him to be so nice.
Oh yeah! Hadn’t the news reported that he was critically ill? He looked as if there was nothing wrong with him!
Sure enough, one should never believe rumors.
After Lin Yan left, Pei Nanxu pushed the door to enter the room again.
“Big Brother, are you really alright?”
He had initially thought that Pei Yucheng would be in a coma for another extended period of time. He had never expected that he would wake up after being sent home.
Pei Yucheng’s eyes darted past the windows and his gaze fell upon the girl downstairs. “Do I look unwell?”
Pei Nanxu shook his head.
Not only did he seem fine, but his spirits and mood seemed pretty good.
It had been a long while since he had seen his brother looking this good.
“Big Brother, who is that girl?” Pei Nanxu attempted to sound him out.
Based on Lin Yan’s reaction, she didn’t seem to know his brother.
However, based on his brother’s expression… he seemed to have known her for a long time…
Pei Yucheng retracted his gaze and replied casually, “Your sister-in-law.”
Pei Nanxu was shocked!
His brother was saying that… this woman would be his future sister-in-law?
Pei Nanxu was astonished that his brother would suddenly fall in love with a girl…
