A slender and tall figure appeared at the back door of the bar as Xiao Yunyun was drowned in despair . A young man said in a threatening voice, “She’s telling the truth . She’s Lu Boyan and Su Yicheng’s cousin . ”
“Master Qin . ” Several men who were holding Xiao Yunyun looked in astonishment at Qin Han as he walked towards them . They pointed at Xiao Yunyun and asked, “Master Qin, do you… know her?”
Qin Han smiled . “How would I know that she’s Lu Boyan and Su Yicheng’s cousin if I don’t know her?”
No one could afford to offend either Lu Boyan or Su Yicheng who had created fabulous business miracles in City A .
They had never expected that the girl whom they were trying to bully was Lu Boyan and Su Yicheng’s relative!
Those men released Xiao Yunyun in a flash as if they had been stung by wasps . They hastened to apologize and said awkwardly, “Young lady, we were just kidding . We didn’t mean it!”
“Humph”, Xiao Yunyun snorted coldly, thinking to herself, “I’m not buying it!”
She didn’t know what would have happened to her if Qin Han hadn’t showed up on time .
“How could they say that they were just kidding?”
“Haha, I’d like to play a trick on them—”
Xiao Yunyun suddenly lifted her leg and kicked the man who had caught her first hard in the crotch .
“Ow—!” The man squatted down in anguish because of the unexpected kick, staring at Xiao Yunyun with disbelief, but he didn’t dare to hit her back . He could only collapse on the ground to relieve himself from the agony .
Xiao Yunyun was filled with a strong sense of achievement . She squatted in front of the man as if nothing had happened and gave a charming smile . “I was just kidding . Take it easy . ”
With that said, Xiao Yunyun glanced at the men standing beside her as she got up .
They took a few steps back in fear, still in shock about what had happened to their ringleader .
“Don’t worry . There’s no point in laying a finger on you,” Xiao Yunyun said with a disdainful look, then she turned and walked over to Qin Han . “Let’s go . ”
Xiao Yunyun finally let out a sigh of relief after she walked through the long corridor and reached the brightly lit street in front of the bar . She leaned against the hood of Qin Han’s car, gasping in the dusty air as if she had just survived a disaster .
Qin Han sized Xiao Yunyun up leisurely . “Why did you go to the back door? You’re not supposed to go there if not necessary . ”
“I was just curious so I went to have a look there . ” Xiao Yunyun pursed her lips in disgust . “I didn’t expect it to be such a dirty place!”
Qin Han knew that Xiao Yunyun was trying to sidetrack him . He simply gazed at her and asked, “Was that so? There are more interesting things in the bar . Why were you curious about just a back door? You’re lying to me, aren’t you?”
Xiao Yunyun felt awkward to be caught lying . She looked away and said, “Because I don’t want to tell you the truth . Stop asking since you know that I don’t want to talk about it . ”
Qin Han smiled as if he had already seen through Xiao Yunyun . “It’s not a shame . It’s all right to cry when a young lady feels down . So, you shouldn’t have left from the back door even if you were embarrassed . ”
Hearing Qin Han talk about her secret indifferently, Xiao Yunyun felt rather upset . She glared at him and shouted, “I was frightened to cry by those scum!”
Qin Han knew that was not the case .
He could easily figure out that Xiao Yunyun had left from the back door because she had cried, following which she had run into those hooligans .
However, Qin Han thought for a while and realized that he’d better not be too frank because it wouldn’t do good to him if he annoyed Xiao Yunyun .
He knew that she was like a rabbit that would bite when it was cornered even though it looked docile .
Qin Han pretended that he believed what she had said . He asked, “Oh . Are you frightened now?”
“There’s nothing to be afraid of . ” Xiao Yunyun forced a calm look . She decided to change the subject so she asked, “By the way, why did you go to the back door?”
“I worried about you because you had left for your call for far too long . I looked for you all over the bar but didn’t find you . In the end, a security guard told me that you had gone out through the back door . ” Qin Han said with a proud look, “By the way, aren’t you going to thank me? They wouldn’t have let you go so easily if I hadn’t shown up . ”
Xiao Yunyun only listened to the second half of Qin Han’s words although he had said so much .
Because he was right .
Xiao Yunyun looked right into Qin Han’s eyes . “I really want to thank you for what you did just now, and I mean it . I couldn’t have known how to deal with them or get rid of them if it were not for your help . How about treating you to dinner to show my gratitude?”
“Alright,” Qin Han replied without hesitation . “I’d like to dine with a beauty like you, why not? I think we should fix a date right now in case you break your word . ”
“…” It was the first time that Xiao Yunyun had seen such a frank person . She was too surprised at Qin Han’s words to utter a syllable .
“Why are you so quiet? Do you want me to decide for you?” Qin Han continued, “How about seven o’clock tomorrow afternoon? I’ll tell you the restaurant address later . ”
“…” Xiao Yunyun replied with an “oh” in a daze . She had no choice but to agree in front of a voluble man like Qin Han .
Qin Han seemed to be riveted by Xiao Yunyun at that moment . He narrowed his eyes with a smile and reached out to touch her hair . “It’s getting late . You…”
Xiao Yunyun dodged backward as Qin Han was about to touch her head and stared at him warily with an indifferent look .
Qin Han was amused .
“She’s so straightforward . ”
He thought that she would say a few words to defuse the awkward situation like others usually did, without expecting that she would look steadily at him with her beautiful big eyes to show that she didn’t like his touch .
As a Young Master of the Qin Family, he found that he didn’t know what to do with Xiao Yunyun at that moment although he had always considered himself to be a dashing man who had seen countless young ladies .
Qin Han withdrew his hand in despondency . “Let me drive you home . ”
It occurred to Xiao Yunyun that it used to be Shen Yuechuan who drove her home . She remembered that he would always drive her to her apartment and then leave after watching her enter the building .
The passenger seat in Shen Yuechuan’s car had been just for her for some time .
“No, thanks . I’ll take a taxi,”
Xiao Yunyun refused Qin Han without hesitation or even thinking it over for half a second .
It was beyond Qin Han’s expectations . He asked with a sad look, “Do you mean it? Other girls would jump at the chance for it . ”
“That’s it . ” Xiao Yunyun looked at Qin Han . “I don’t care about the so-called chance . What do you think I should keep it for?”
“…” Qin Han felt as if he had been shot in the heart with an arrow .
However, as a gentleman, Qin Han could still keep smiling no matter how disappointed he felt . “Say what you like . It’s late so I must drive you home . Otherwise, I don’t know what I’m going to tell my parents . ”
“Don’t worry . ” Xiao Yunyun was smart . “I’ll tell my mother that you drove me back . ” Then she held out her hand to stop a taxi .
Soon a taxi stopped in front of Xiao Yunyun . She got in the car without hesitation and waved to Qin Han . “See you tomorrow . ”
Qin Han didn’t know whether to laugh or cry, and felt rather frustrated . He memorized the registration number of the taxi as he waved at Xiao Yunyun .
In the taxi, Xiao Yunyun told the driver her apartment address and took out her cellphone . She found Shen Yuechuan’s number but hesitated for a long time before she decided to dial him .
She thought that she wasn’t familiar with Qin Han, so she had pretended that she wasn’t panicked or scared in front of him .
She suddenly collapsed as she looked at Shen Yuechuan’s name on the phone screen . She felt as if something had stabbed her heart, which had been filled with sadness and fear that surged up with an irresistible force like the Baotu Spring .
She didn’t dare to imagine what she would be experiencing if Qin Han hadn’t found her .
No one would have believed that she was Lu Boyan and Su Yicheng’s cousin if Qin Han hadn’t shown up, and it would have been impossible for her to escape her doom .
Sure enough, it wasn’t the first time she had run into trouble like that . She had experienced the same thing at Su Yicheng’s wedding .
Shen Yuechuan saved her back then .
She wondered why Shen Yuechuan didn’t show up when she needed him this time .
Xiao Yunyun closed her eyes and finally touched “call” .
Being frantic at that moment, she simply wanted to turn to Shen Yuechuan for comfort even if she could only hear his voice .
However, life didn’t always give what she wanted even though she was determined to succeed—
“Sorry, the subscriber you dialed is power off . ”
The sweet female voice was indifferently telling Xiao Yunyun that Shen Yuechuan had turned off his cellphone . She wasn’t able to get what she wanted, not even hearing his voice .
It occurred to Xiao Yunyun that Shen Yuechuan had left the bar with a young lady . It was already the next day .
She thought that they were in the hotel at that time so it was normal for Shen Yuechuan to turn off his cellphone .
However, it stabbed Xiao Yunyun to the heart . She buried her face in her palms . She felt the wind sneaking in through the taxi windows like a mournful sonata .
Xiao Yunyun suddenly felt as if a knife with a thin and sharp blade had scratched open her heart . It seemed as if her heart had been streaked with blood and ruptured . She found that she wasn’t able to save herself from the pain, although she was a cardiac surgeon .
Xiao Yunyun’s eyes were burning . However, she couldn’t shed a tear .
“Maybe I’m more mature so I don’t cry over the same thing anymore,” she thought to herself .
Sure enough, she was sad . She was nearly overwhelmed by her sadness which was like a fierce storm that had broken out . She could only bury her face in her hands to get herself through it .
It was the first time that Xiao Yunyun had ever felt lonely since she came to City A .
