After Transmigration, The Male Lead and I had a HE - Chapter 103
Then they finally arrived at the community and entered the building. Xie Xinglin sent her to the stairs and then stopped moving. Su Qiuge noticed that half of his body was wet, and even his hair appeared soft due to the rainwater. The entire person appeared colder after getting wet.
Su Qiuge thought in her heart that it was also because of accompanying her that he was here, so she hesitated for a moment and said, “Would you like to go up to my house? I have extra towels, you can take a shower before leaving.”
Xie Xinglin directly refused, “No need.”
When he was prepared to leave, Su Qiuge looked at Xie Xinglin and his clothes that were basically half-soaked. She couldn’t force herself to ignore this, so she stepped forward and said, “Seatmate, you will catch a cold like this. If you go back to the subway, they will also have air conditioning——”
Unexpectedly, due to the rain, there was an accumulation of rainwater in the hallways, so when Su Qiuge took a step forward, she happened to step on water and accidentally slipped forward a few steps.
Xie Xinglin stretched out his arm to catch her, but was slightly pushed back a few steps by her momentum. His back was pressed against the wall.
Originally, his body that was soaked by rainwater was exceptionally cold, but her body was actually especially warm, so when she suddenly stuck to him, it was as if something that had been frozen for a long time had come into contact with a warm blaze. His body unconsciously heated up causing Xie Xinglin’s drooped lashes to faintly tremble, and even the hand supporting her arm faintly tightened.
When he felt the softness in his arms, his mind suddenly recalled what he had said to Su Yuanzhou earlier.
“Even if I am interested in her and want to do something, can you do anything about it?”
He lowered his eyes and attentively stared at the completely unaware Su Qiuge, his tongue lightly swept across the tips of his teeth.
When he caught her, it was as if someone traveling though the polar regions had embraced the warm sun, causing a strange throbbing to flash by in his heart. For a split second, he even wanted to directly bring her firmly into his embrace and never let go.
This thought that had abruptly appeared in his mind made Xie Xinglin faintly wrinkled his brow.
“You and her are not the same kind of people. If she knew what kind of person you were, do you think she would still help you?”
She was a flower bud in a greenhouse, with little defense against others and couldn’t bear to watch others suffer difficulties or injuries.
Compared to her, he was more like a person walking through a dark corner.
After all, the trajectory of his life had already changed the moment his father died.
He personally watched as that woman’s tender sentiments and sweet feelings towards his father turned into bubbles while he was still alive. She kept saying that she loved him, but went and married someone else.
The one she loved was never his father. What she loved was the money the man gave her, the reputation as Madam Xie and all the splendid jewelries attached to it. After she lost those, she no longer had any love for the Xie Family.
Because of her, he will never believe in love again going forward.
When he thought to this point, Xie Xinglin’s eyes became slightly colder and he ignored the unnecessary and superfluous emotions in his heart.
Su Qiuge couldn’t help but suddenly shivered from the wet coldness emanating from his body. Then she immediately took a few steps back and looked at him. She wondered, Xie Xinglin was colder than even ice water right now, would he really not catch a cold like this?
Xie Xinglin lowered his eyes, it was unknown what he was thinking.
At this moment, she couldn’t clearly see the emotions at the bottom of his eyes. But in the span of a split second, Su Qiuge suddenly felt that the air surrounding him could unexpectedly cause one’s heart to palpitate.
After a while, he raised his head and indifferently glanced at her.
The voice seemed a little hoarse, “No need, I’m in a hurry to get back.”
As soon as his voice fell, he turned and left.
Su Qiuge watched his back, feeling that his tone of voice just now seemed especially restrained, it was as if he was deliberately suppressing something.
Afterwards, Su Qiuge had some personal understanding of his expression just now.
She knew she had been eating more recently, so her weight was likely to increase.
But he only supported her for a moment, so it seemed unlikely for him to become so breathless?
Could it be that although Xie Xinglin was great at fighting, he was actually physically weak?
When she thought this way, Su Qiuge’s movement of going up the stairs paused. Then, she let out a sigh.
Said he was a little white face and he even refused to admit to it.
