Adopting and Raising the Male Lead and the Villain - Chapter 240
Zhong Yuhuan suddenly thought of Huo Chengming’s show of dissatisfaction with her dating when they were at Yuelan villa, before leaving.
Huo Chengming no longer stopped, turning to go. “Wait here patiently, Huanhuan. There’ll be water to drink soon.”
Isn’t this the tone used to comfort little kids? Zhong Yuhuan angrily thought.
Zhong Yuhuan was about to walk over, but then Li Jinyuan extended his arm and embraced her. His arms seemed to be loosely holding her, but he used a lot of strength, so it would be hard to escape.
“There’s basically no one outside,” Li Jinyuan said beside her ear.
Even so, Zhong Yuhuan did not feel relieved at all.
Without further delay, Huo Chengming walked out of the church.
At this time, the female guests and staff members hiding under the pews couldn’t help but look at Zhong Yuhuan with complex expressions.
It had been a long time since they had partaken in any food or drink, so who wasn’t thirsty or hungry now? But if they really needed to go out to get water, then no one would be brave enough.
Only Huo Chengming dared.
But no matter how envious and jealous they were, they couldn’t ask Huo Chengming to bring some food and water for them.
Zhong Yuhuan’s brows furrowed tighter, staring at the church’s main entrance, then powerlessly said, “Okay, let go. I won’t run out.”
Only then did Li Jinyuan slowly relax his arms. When he let go, he lowered his head as a reluctant look flashed across his eyes.
Wen Yongchen frowned, somewhat annoyed.
There was such a large incident this time, but he couldn’t help at all. Who knows how the gossip columns would write about him? That would be fine, but even his opportunity to comfort Zhong Yuhuan was taken away.
Originally, Wen Yonchen didn’t think that it was too bad. Huo Chengming and Li Jinyuan, as brothers, caring for their sister is very normal, so why would he fight and offend his future brother-in-laws?
But at this time, Wen Yongchen had a strong sense of crisis.
“Huanhuan…” Wen Yongchen opened his mouth again.
But before he could say anything else, a rush of footsteps approached.
The people in the church immediately tensed up.
But there weren’t any gunshots.
Following, they saw Huo Chengming coming over with five liters of water in his left and a bag of hardtack in his right. He had long legs and large steps, so he entered the church with a few steps in the blink of an eye. His tall silhouette gave out a strong sense of security in that instant.
At this moment, people like Wen Yongchen, or even the most handsome male celebrity, instantly vanished from everyone’s mind.
There was only Huo Chengming left in their eyes, handsome and overwhelming.
Huo Chengming quickly arrived in front of Zhong Yuhuan, saying, “There were no more armed personnel outside. We can leave soon.”
Zhong Yuhuan let out a breath.
Huo Chengming stuffed the biscuits in the windbreaker that Zhong Yuhuan was holding. When the others saw this scene, they still couldn’t escape a sense of disappointment, despite already knowing the result. Of course, the food was only for Zhong Yuhuan to eat.
After Huo Chengming stuffed the biscuits in, he promptly unscrewed the cap to the water.
The term “bucket” could even be used to measure the five liters of water.
Zhong Yuhuan naturally wanted to receive it. Although this bucket of water looked a bit heavy, she had practiced arm strengthening, so she would have no problems holding it and drinking from it.
But when Zhong Yuhuan extended her hand, Huo Chengming avoided her. He slightly frowned and said, “Don’t move,” sounding just like an older brother.
Zhong Yuhuan could only obediently take back her hand and stay still.
Huo Chengming only braved the danger of going outside to get water because she said that she was thirsty, so how could she disobey him?
Huo Chengming held the bottom of the bucket and pointed the mouth of it at Zhong Yuhuan’s lips.
Zhong Yuhuan couldn’t help but say, “If you accidentally use a bit of force, then I’ll be soaked.”
Huo Chengming’s throat moved. “… My hands are very steady.”
Zhong Yuhuan: “Fine.”
Zhong Yuhuan then opened her mouth.
Actually, Huo Chengming’s arm strength wasn’t for show. His muscles weren’t there for nothing either. The bucket was very steady in his hands. Zhong Yuhuan quickly drank quite a lot of water and only a bit leaked from her lips. That was because she was too thirsty and unconsciously drank too hurriedly.
“No more.” Huo Chengming moved the water away. “Drinking too much at once will be uncomfortable.”
Zhong Yuhuan nodded. She naturally understood the reason.
Huo Chengming then held the bucket for himself and drank two mouthfuls.
It’s just that while he was drinking, his eyes still stared at Zhong Yuhuan.
Zhong Yuhuan suddenly felt uncomfortable.
Huo Chengming was clearly only drinking.
Although she had just touched the rim.
But that’s still only drinking water!
Then why did she feel like his lips weren’t touching the bucket rim, but rather her lips…?
Zhong Yuhuan was shocked by her thoughts.
Is it because I haven’t dated for so long that my hormones are unbalanced so I began to think about Huo Chengming?
Zhong Yuhuan quickly turned to look at Wen Yongchen.
Look, this is the boyfriend I plan to date!
At this time, Li Jinyuan’s voice rang out, bringing a sense of unpleasantness. “Brother Huo, do you not plan on leaving me any water?”
Huo Chengming screwed on the lid, passing it over to Li Jinyuan without a change in his expression.
Li Jinyuan lowered his head and looked at it… Huo Chengming took the lead in drinking right after Huanhuan, so now Li Jinyuan didn’t have the heart to drink anymore. He just didn’t want to see Huo Chengming drink from the edge of the bucket, not letting go for such a long time like he was kissing Zhong Yuhuan’s lips and not leaving.
Li Jinyuan was about to burst.
The undercurrent between Li Jinyuan and Huo Chengming was hidden under a calm exterior, so it was very hard to notice.
But Wen Yongchen seemed to suddenly understand something.
