"Young Master Su's eyesight is not very good, I am a man."
Pushing away the approaching person, Lin Zisheng frowned and took 2 steps backward. He saw the seriousness in Su Mo's eyes but he doesn't want to have any feelings with the mission target.
Su Mo could see Lin Zisheng's resistance. Although he is not happy in his heart, he tried his best to hold it back. Su Mo keeps telling himself that he cannot be impulsive or else he would scare that person away.
"Beauty and gender are not important. Zisheng, you are indeed the most beautiful person in this place."
As Su Mo said that, he tried to lean towards Lin Zisheng but was pushed away. Because he didn't get to take any advantage, Su Mo felt a bit depressed. But Su Mo's words couldn't be considered an exaggeration because Lin Zisheng's appearance is one of the best to start with. Adding to the fact that he dressed up more grandly due to the formal occasion, Lin Zisheng is shining even more brightly than what he wore to Su Mo's birthday party. Many people around Lin Zisheng are staring at him with eager and hot eyes. If not for Su Mo guarding beside him, these people have long come over to hit on Lin Zisheng.
Lin Zisheng once again pushed away Su Mo's hand that is about to rest on his shoulder and slowly walked back to the ball. Instead of being alone here with Su Mo, he rather stays in a crowded place because the feeling that Su Mo gave him right now is too dangerous.
Su Mo regretfully sighed in his heart as he looked at the back of his crush getting further and further away. Although the two of them are getting familiar with each other in nearly 4 months, he has no way of getting Lin Zisheng to get used to his physical contact.
"Young master Su, this is..."
The people who have been watching them stopped hoping for a miracle after Su Mo and Lin Zisheng came out from the terrace together. Originally, some people wanted to deceive themselves to think that both men came to the ball together because they are an acquaintance. But now, Young master Su's intention is too obvious that no one would be able to miss it.
"Second Young master from the Lin family, Lin Zisheng."
Bringing Lin Zisheng to the ball today, other than declaring his ownership, Su Mo wanted to let everyone know his(LZS) identity, especially to those who have intentions towards him(LZS); better stop thinking!
"Second Young master... from the Lin family, that Lin family?!”
Some people couldn’t wrap their minds to that sentence. But for Su Mo to specifically introduced this 'Lin family', then it mustn't be any ordinary family. And in City A, within the pool of influential families, there is only one Lin family that meets the requirement.
"That Lin family." Su Mo nodded while smiling.
As expected, everyone's gaze towards Lin Zisheng has changed, changing from admiration to respect.
Bai Wei who has been eavesdropping in the distance is baffled. She knew that Lin Zisheng's family background is good, else he won't be able to help her to escape from Su Mo again and again in her past life. But she has no idea at all how big is the Lin family’s background.
"Excuse me, what does Ah Mo means by that Lin family?"
Bai Wei quietly asked the girl beside her. Seeing how everyone looked respectful, Bai Wei subconsciously felt that the Lin family they are talking about is not simple. The moment the girl heard Bai Wei’s question, she looked at her(BW) with slight contempt in her eyes. But she still answered the question, "The Lin family is also one of the best families in City A, they are comparable to the Su family ah."
As the girl said that, she looked at both people in admiration. No matter men or women, they will 'rush like ducks' towards this kind of (high quality) people. It's a pity that this is an 'internal digestion' (meaning, both men like each other, no chance for girls)!
Bai Wei's heart is full of surprises when she heard that. She originally thought that Lin Zisheng is just someone with slightly better family background. Now that she knows that his actual background is that good, she is shocked! Such two excellent men used to love her so much, how could she not feel proud of that? Watching Su Mo and Lin Zisheng chatted with other people at the ball, then as Lin Zisheng leaves the crowd, Bai Wei finally found a chance to follow. She felt that if she confesses right now, Ah Sheng would definitely accept her!
Lin Zisheng walked out of the event hall. Right now is December so the weather has turned cold. The wind blows and caused him to shiver, he felt soberer now. He still doesn't like this kind of socializing, it is too easy for him to remember those days in the past. Every time he attended those kinds of banquet, the one following behind him would be his sister. Unlike ordinary families that value son over daughter, his family values daughter over son instead. His little sister is the most important person at home, not him who is the eldest son. Of course, he doesn't have any dissatisfaction over this matter because he truly dotes on this little sister as well. Just that this person who he loves deeply to the bones has been driven crazy in the end by someone who doesn't belong to the family. The whole family has even shattered to pieces. Thinking of this, Lin Zisheng gripped his fists tightly. The bone-biting chill doesn't seem to be able to calm him down.
"Ah Sheng, you are alone?"
Just as Lin Zisheng couldn't contain his mood and wanted to smoke to calm down, a soft voice could be heard behind his back. He involuntarily frowned and his mood became more and more unstable.
"Looking for me?" Lin Zisheng didn't turn around but indifferently staring forward.
"I... it's nothing. Just that I saw you here alone, so I wanted to come out to accompany you."
As she said that, a faint blush covered Bai Wei's face. She never noticed this before but she found out that Ah Sheng is actually also outstanding, very outstanding.
"No need, Miss Bai should go and do your own thing." Lin Zisheng lowered down his eyes.
At the moment, the system keeps flashing in his mind to remind him to calm down.
[System reminder, system reminder, the host’s mental stability is now approaching a critical point. If you couldn't return to normal within 10 minutes, you will be forcefully pulled out from the world and considered failed the mission!]
"Alright, be quiet. I know."
Annoyed by the noise, plus Bai Wei is standing behind him, Lin Zisheng felt like he couldn't calm down even more.
"Ah Sheng, I have something to tell you," Bai Wei's gaze behind Lin Zisheng is filled with affection, "let's... get together ba."
Her voice carried a hint of sweetness, letting anyone who heard it feel delighted. But the only thing Lin Zisheng could feel upon hearing those words is disgust! She has just confessed to Su Mo not very long ago, and in a blink of an eye she came to say wanting to be with him, she sure has a ‘big’ face (shameless)!
"Why do you think that I will agree to be with you?"
Lin Zisheng is quite curious to know where her confidence came from because he didn't show any goodwill towards her during all these times.
"I know you have always liked me," as she said that, Bai Wei approached Lin Zisheng and reached out to hug his waist, "I too have been..."
Just that Bai Wei has yet to hug Lin Zisheng, a hand caught her and roughly pulled her away. She fell heavily onto the ground from inertia. For a short moment, the intense pain caused her sight to turn black. When Bai Wei recovered, that person has taken Lin Zisheng away. Bai Wei couldn't recognize that person but she could see Lin Zisheng clearly.
That person was Su Mo, but at the moment, he is giving Lin Zisheng a very dangerous feeling. It is brightly lit everywhere but Lin Zisheng felt that the person walking in front of him is shrouded in a piece of darkness.
Lin Zisheng struggled slightly because Su Mo gripped too hard and his wrist has started throbbing in pain. Finally, Su Mo stopped walking when they reached the forest. Lin Zisheng has yet to react when Su Mo pushed him at a tree, then pressed down on him(LZS).
"Ouch! Have you gone crazy, Su Mo?!"
Sucking a breath of cold air, the throbbing pain at his back let Lin Zisheng know that the push just now has caused some injuries to his body.
"Me, gone crazy? Heh..."
Su Mo seemed to have heard something funny. His face carried a smile, just that that smile looked sinister.
"That’s right. I have gone crazy, driven crazy by you. You actually liked that woman?"
Su Mo strongly gripped Lin Zisheng's chin to force him to look at him(SM).
"She has confessed to me just a moment ago, then she wanted to be with you. Only you would want a woman like this!"
Su Mo didn't mention how shocked he was when he discovered that Lin Zisheng has gone missing. In the end, when he found him(LZS), he only heard what that woman said. Instantly, Su Mo's rational nerve snapped and the beast that has been restrained in his heart was released.
"Like her or not, it's my business. What does this have to do with you?!"
Lin Zisheng has never liked Bai Wei, but he is extremely dissatisfied with Su Mo acting like he has caught him(LZS) red-handed.
"What does this have to do with me? I'll let you know what does this has to do with me!"
At this moment, the fire of his jealousy has burned away all his reasons. Su Mo has long forgotten all his previous fears, forgotten that pushing too far will scare Lin Zisheng away. All he could think of right now is to let the other person shut up!
Looking at Su Mo getting closer and closer, Lin Zisheng immediately understood what he(SM) is thinking. Just that it's too late for him(LZS) to resist because when he tried to struggle, Su Mo caught both of his hands and pressed it above his(LZS) head, then bit hard on his lips. That's right, bit. He only let go when the skin broke and blood flowed out. Then Su Mo sucked heavily on Lin Zisheng's lips, his gaze carried a hint of madness and obsession.
Lin Zisheng's expression became ugly. His body is pressed down by Su Mo and couldn't move, so he could only raise his foot and ruthlessly kicked at Su Mo's calf.
Intense pain made Su Mo paused, and it's this moment of hesitation that Lin Zisheng managed to break away from him. Next, it's time for him to counterattack.
Although Su Mo's fighting skills are not bad, how could he dare to hit Lin Zisheng? And so, Lin Zisheng keeps beating him up. Other than protecting his own face, Su Mo almost used his entire body to let Li Zisheng release anger.
Of course, although Lin Zisheng is furious right now, he knew his limit. His attacks are not light but they won't fracture any bones. He chose the most painful area and started punching and kicking at the same place. It won't cause Su Mo to suffer heavy injuries but it will hurt him for a few days after this. Finally, seeing Su Mo groaning in pain on the ground, Lin Zisheng clapped his hand (to brush away dust) and prepared to leave. But then Su Mo caught his ankle and prevented him from leaving.
"Zisheng, all the things I said today are true words from my heart," Su Mo's voice rang out in this silent night, carrying a hint of hoarseness and slightly shaking from the pain, "I am serious, I really like you. Do you think it's laughable? But these words come from my heart."
Su Mo's voice sounded pitiful on this empty and cold night, making it hard for Lin Zisheng to say any words of rejection.
At this moment, someone stood behind a tree a little farther away. Her body trembled slightly like she is holding back...
