Adopting and Raising the Male Lead and the Villain - Chapter 266
But facing the dog-like Huo Chengming in front of her, Zhong Yuhuan felt some sort of strong pressure. He suddenly stared at her intensely, his eyes flashing with some hidden emotions.
More and more things accumulated in his chest, almost erupting.
But Huo Chengming still kept in mind what Zhong Yuhuan told him before. ‘You can commit wrong acts, as long as you don’t let me know…’
Huo Chengming pursed his lips, then suddenly smiled. “Okay.”
He agreed so easily?
Zhong Yuhuan suddenly felt a bit incredulous. She blinked, looking at Huo Chengming.
But Huo Chengming’s expression suddenly sank, saying, “But Huanhuan also needs to promise me something.”
At this time, Huo Chengming completely threw his work to the back of his head. He said, “This whole month, Huanhuan has to accompany me to work.”
Zhong Yuhuan thought about it, then bit the bullet. “Fine.”
She would just sit in his office, playing games. Is there anything wrong with that?
Huo Chengming lowered his eyes. “Finish the soup.”
Zhong Yuhuan nodded, lifting the bowl and finishing the soup.
“I’m full,” Zhong Yuhuan said.
“Then let’s go.” Huo Chengming rose, paying the bill.
The two walked out, one after the other.
When they walked out, Huo Chengming suddenly pulled Zhong Yuhuan into his arms. “There’s paparazzi.”
Zhong Yuhuan was dumbfounded. Being firmly held in his embrace, she couldn’t breathe for an instant.
His muscles were clearly not just for show. His arms braced, as if to lock Zhong Yuhuan down.
Zhong Yuhuan leaned against his chest, feeling a bit uncomfortable.
She could hear Huo Chengming’s strong heartbeat.
Zhong Yuhuan thought with difficulty, Why are you hugging me if there’s paparazzi?
It doesn’t do anything…
Huo Chengming wasn’t looking around for paparazzi at all.
He tightly embraced Zhong Yuhuan, staring at her hair whirl. He wasn’t so unhappy about Zhong Yuhuan’s request anymore.
He didn’t know how much longer he could endure. Maybe it would be sooner, or maybe he could still endure for a year, another two years…
But if Huanhuan continued to remind him what he could do, what he couldn’t do, that rubber band will be stretched so tight that it cannot continue to be stretched and as a result snap.
Thinking of that day, Huo Chengming didn’t feel panicked, but rather a vague anticipation.
A bit of morality in his heart dissipated.
Huo Chengming lowered his head, touching her hair with his hand before letting her go.
“Okay, the paparazzi are gone.” Huo Chengming lied through his teeth.
“Really.” Huo Chengming opened the car door.
Zhong Yuhuan reluctantly believed his words and obediently got in the car.
But she still felt a bit uncomfortable.
When Huo Chengming embraced her, other than hugging her too tightly, she also felt…
a gaze from above her head, strong and sharp, as if a wild beast was staring at her, about to eat her raw and alive.
Zhong Yuhuan took a breath, exhaling the air that was making her feel stuffy. She didn’t have the urge to speak for a while.
Huo Chengming didn’t speak either.
His arms were still warm, reminiscing about how it felt to hug Zhong Yuhuan.
Huo Chengming thought that he would hire two reporters himself tomorrow, telling them where to shoot.
The things that Li Jinyuan said during the interview were quickly edited and posted online. It upturned everything again.
“Ahhh, my Li was an orphan before? I feel so bad TVT. Why would the media expose people’s scars?!”
“Li Jinyuan is correct. Does orphan mean someone who knows how to steal and rob and point to someone unable to become outstanding? Li Jinyuan is already very outstanding. That post was clearly fabricated to smear him.”
“If it’s like this, then Li Jinyuan and Zhong Yuhuan really don’t have blood relations…”
“Hey, you found an interesting point.”
“Am I the only one who noticed this?! He still answered Zhong Yuhuan’s call during the interview! He said it’s because he’s afraid to miss it! Oh my god! …”
“Because he didn’t pick up the phone when she needed him in the past, he set a special ringtone for her and is afraid to turn his phone on silent mode… This is so caring of Li Jinyuan. It’s pretty good even though they don’t have blood relations. Not even cousins. *whispers* Now I can rest assured.”
Li Jinyuan was scrolling through the Weibo comments and smiled.
Wen Yongchen was also looking at the comments.
Li Jinyuan really dared!
The author has something to say: Brother Li shows off his power in front of the media while Mr. Huo makes trouble for them in the back.
