After suddenly asking that perplexing question buried in her heart, Yun Shishi was afraid to look at him .
Hua Jin was taken aback, his face losing color in an instant .
The actress was dumbfounded when she saw how his face had turned ugly following her question . She did not know what it was she had said that had hit him in his sore spot .
“They’re likely afraid of the consequences it will bring if you and I get too close . ”
The young man’s eyes drooped in disappointment as he bit his lower lip helplessly . “I’m… probably selfish for not considering that, but…”
He raised his head and spoke seriously . “Do you know? I love being with you . ”
Shock filled the woman’s eyes .
“Please don’t misunderstand! I didn’t mean anything romantic about it! I love being with you because you let me feel… the warmth of a family . ”
Even though he said that with a small smile, his tone was extremely sad . “I’ve always been greedy for such warmth because I’ve never had it before . That’s why…”
The young man’s smile was laced with bitterness as he spoke seriously . “Perhaps you should keep your distance from me—at least, until I have cut things off with that woman . ”
Was this the woman Mu Xi had mentioned to her previously? Hua Jin’s financial backer?
The actor glanced at her, seeing through her thoughts . He had a meticulousness unlike any other man . Therefore, he quickly sensed what she was suspecting .
“I’m aware of the countless rumors about me in the industry . Some are unfounded, but some are indeed true . ”
Yun Shishi looked at him with a deep gaze .
“The life experiences I’ve told you before are all… true . They are . I wasn’t joking . I’m afraid that you’ll think I’m dirty once you find out about it…”
He shrank his shoulders helplessly . His colorless lips were as dry and cracked as the Mother Earth .
“Why would I?” Unexpectedly, the actress smiled . “I don’t think you are dirty . The past is in the past . Who doesn’t have one?”
His eyes were filled with surprise as a slight vigor returned to his face .
“You really don’t find me dirty?”
“Yes . ”
The actor examined her expression . Her gaze was genuine and her look was serious . Thus, he sighed . “I’ll tell you if you’re willing to listen . ”
“Okay . ”
In fact, Hua Jin’s father truly did sell him to a man with an extraordinary background when he had nowhere to go .
This man was very powerful and had a reputation in the financial industry .
He had several businesses and investments in many domains, from Internet and media to property…
An entertainment company under his control was just a small part of his properties .
That guy had his eyes set on him and offered to take him in as payment for his father’s debt; his old man naturally agreed to that proposal .
The following years after that were something the actor could not bear to look back on .
From being inexperienced and young, he eventually became cold and detached from the world . It was all because of that man .
He remembered that one time when he was brought to attend a prestigious private banquet . The host of the banquet had booked an entire island for half a month of wild fun, filled with wannabe models and drugs .
The man threw him into the circle and gave a speech about how they could play with him however they wanted .
He was violated beyond recognition during that half a month .
At the banquet, several financial backers had been so wild that a few wannabes died amid their fun .Please download our sponsor's game to support us!
