The man said nothing more as he gazed at the young girl's beautiful features. His red eyes were filled with resolve.
"If you've made your decision then I'll follow you there. No matter the dangers that may come your way, I will protect you."
He can only support her decision and he would follow her without hesitation even to the end of the world.
"Xiao Ye, thank you."
Gu Ruoyun raised her head and looked at the silver-haired man in blood-red robes. A peculiar light flashed across her clear eyes.
The shining moonlight enveloped the man's silky, silver hair. The scene was so beautiful it was like a dream.
But most importantly, the man's red lips were very close to hers. So close that all he needed to do was to lean forward...
It goes without saying that, at this very moment, Gu Ruoyun's heart seemed to stop. Even with Lu Chen in her past life, she had not felt anything quite as genuine as this...
"Xiao Yun, may I kiss you?"
As he spoke, the man's peerless face looked extremely shy but his eyes, full of desire, were gazing at Gu Ruoyun's lips.
Nevertheless, he did not wait for Gu Ruoyun to regain her senses and lowered his head to kiss her soft, thin lips.
Previously, it wasn't like Qianbei Ye didn't steal kisses from her but Gu Ruoyun, at the time, did not have feelings for him. Now, she didn't know why, but the moment when the man's red lips met hers, her mind suddenly went blank. She did not even notice it when Qianbei Ye's lips left hers.
"Xiao Yun, you're not going to hit me?"
After a long pause, seeing as how Gu Ruoyun had made no reaction, the man stared at her pitifully as he asked carefully.
He looked like the bullied uke from a boy's love story, looking so hurt that anyone would feel the urge to pamper him with tenderness.
"Hit you?" Gu Ruoyun finally regained her senses though her mind was still in a blur. She asked puzzledly, "Why would I hit you?"
"But..." The man stole a glance at her and his face looked absolutely miserable, "Didn't you hit me the last time?"
He was talking about that one time in Heaven City. She had woken up and then kicked him when she realized that Qianbei Ye had taken advantage of her unconsciousness and fooled around with her.
So, until now, he still believed that as long as he kissed Gu Ruoyun, he would be met with a flying kick.
"Xiao Yun, if you're going to hit me, can you only hit me here," Qianbei Ye pointed at his abdomen and explained in a hurt tone, "If you hit the wrong place, I'm afraid that we won't be able to have babies in the future."
Have babies? Gu Ruoyun thought. This guy... What kind of place has his thoughts gone to?
"I'm going to sleep now, you can give birth to them yourself."
Once she had said her piece, Gu Ruoyun opened her bedroom door and walked in.
Qianbei Ye attempted to follow her but it was in vain - the door smashed into his nose all of a sudden and blocked him from entering.
In her bedroom, Gu Ruoyun took a deep breath as she tried to calm her racing heart. She could not stop the thoughts from running through her mind as she recalled Qianbei Ye's hurt, pitiful look when she had left. She smiled to herself and thought, "This guy... He's really an idiot."
She was quite fortunate. After enduring a bitter betrayal in her past life, she managed to meet someone in this life who would disregard reciprocation and protect her with his life...
A glimmer was seen in Gu Ruoyun's eyes as she smiled at the thought...
The next day.
Gu Ruoyun pushed open her bedroom door to find a familiar figure right in front of her.
The man's face looked a little tired and his already blood-red eyes were now bloodshot. After seeing Gu Ruoyun, his expression suddenly changed and his entire being filled with vitality.
"Xiao Yun, you're awake?"
Gu Ruoyun furrowed her brow, "You were out here the entire night?"
"Xiao Yun, if you don't like it, I won't kiss you again so please don't be angry with me?"
As if having heard the anger in Gu Ruoyun's tone of voice, Qianbei Ye pitifully begged.
"I was angry with you?"
Gu Ruoyun went momentarily blank as she thought, when have I been angry at Xiao Ye and how did I not know about this?
"Were you not unwilling to hit me yesterday?" Qianbei Ye stared hurtfully at Gu Ruoyun, "So you must be angry with me."
If I don't hit him, I'm angry with him? She wondered. Does this man have a tendency for masochism? And just because of that, he had stayed outside my door the entire night?
Gu Ruoyun was dumbstruck. I left yesterday because my heart was beating too fast. And he ended up thinking that I was angry at him?
