Chapter 10: Moving Towards His Leg
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
The Rolls Royce started moving again.
Wei Lin let out a relieved breath for Nan Zhi, seeing that she was not thrown out of the car after her transgression.
The man sitting behind him had become independent and established his own business when he was only 18 years old. He was already the CEO of S.G Multinational Corporation at 26 years of age. He was the youngest, richest and most handsome example of success in the business world worldwide. His reputation was legendary and he had people throwing themselves at his feet to worship him.
He was a born genius and was made to be in power. He was loved and admired by countless rich and powerful women, though he was chaste and never let himself get close to any female. Up until now, Wei Lin had yet to see any woman with the capability to take down this arrogant and unapproachable man.
Nan Zhi could naturally feel the coldness that the man next to her was emanating in waves. She looked down and a mischievous smirk appeared on her face. Her left hand touched the ring she was wearing on her right middle finger.
She never had a lack of people wooing her. She simply wore the ring that her mother gave her since she did not like the men revolving around her like crazed beasts after their prey.
It made people think that she was already attached and it suited her perfectly.
Nan Zhi took off her ring and threw it lightly towards the floor, in the direction of the man.
There was the soft sound of the ring falling and brushing on to fabric. The ring landed on the man’s trousers before it slowly rolled to the bottom of his seat.
As the space in the interior of the car was not too large, together with the fact that the ring had fallen where the man was seated, there was no way Nan Zhi could not get it back herself.
She looked hopefully towards what she could see of the man’s handsome and aloof face. Her voice was laced with a natural softness that was a sweet as honey, “Excuse me, sir, I dropped my ring. Can you help me pick it up?”
There was only the steady sound of Nan Zhi’s soft breathing.
Nan Zhi stared at the man’s fierce jawline for a while as the silence stretched out into nothingness, becoming slightly awkward as he ignored her.
She felt defeated.
It was the first time she had met a man who was so icy that it seemed like the air around him would freeze.
Hmph, he was definitely not as cute as the guy in the front who was driving the car.
Nan Zhi stopped talking when she didn’t receive a response and was only attacked by a wave of coldness. Knowing that she would not get an reply, she moved back towards the other side of the car. The rain continued to pour outside and she turned her attention back to the view outside the window.
The two sat on opposite sides of the car, separated by an uncrossable galaxy.
Nan Zhi had never been as affected by a man in a long time. She resisted the urge to steal glances at him to see what he looked like from the front.
Four years ago, Bo Shaoxiu had made her so angry that she had the impulse to punch him to the other side of the Pacific Ocean.
And now, this man who was sitting, not speaking and as immovable as a statue had sparked her interest and given rise to her dormant impulses again.
The moment the car left the highway, Mu Sihan interrupted the silence, “Stop the car.”
Wei Lin had been serving Mu Sihan for a few years now, which was why he naturally understood what the the man meant. He stopped the car and nodded slightly towards Nan Zhi, “I’m sorry Miss, but we can only help you until here.”
Nan Zhi showed her understanding, “Thank you for taking me this far.”
She opened her umbrella and got off the car.
A few seconds later, she walked carefully to the other side of the car, trying to defend herself from the rain as much as possible.
The window had been lowered by the man inside.
A large, slender and well-defined hand stretched out.
A round ring with an embedded diamond was held between his index finger and thumb. It was the ring that Nan Zhi had dropped on purpose.
Nan Zhi looked over at the man unconsciously, she had almost forgotten about the ring.
The man tilted his head and looked out, seeing that she did not take the ring after a few seconds.
The young woman was standing in the rain under an umbrella. She was tall, lean and fair and had an otherworldly radiance about her that was so beautiful that she seemed to glow, even as she stood under the gloomy sky. The rain continued its downpour, obscuring his version and hers.
Nan Zhi finally got a clear look of the man’s appearance the moment he leaned to the side. Her breath hitched as her heart hammered in her chest like a thundering beacon.
His eyes had a biting depth to them with a gaze that was sharp and intelligent, while his nose was well-defined and perfectly complemented his firm jawline. Elegant brows framed the top of his face with a flawless complexion. His features were handsome like a character from a beautiful painting.
Mu Sihan stared at the dazed Nan Zhi. He looked down slightly to see that two of the buttons on her shirt had opened and the lines of her full cleavage came into view. They were so fair and she was so well endowed that it hurt his eyes.
He furrowed his eyebrows and there was a tinge of annoyance in his fierce expression. He threw the ring directly into Nan Zhi’s bag before he pressed his finger firmly on the button to shut the window and block out the offensive view. Without another word, he took out a pack of cigarettes from his pocket and lit up a cigarette. He inhaled once and gestured towards the road, his voice cold, “Start the car.”
Nan Zhi only regained her senses after the car was long gone. She shook herself and touched her cold palm to flushed rosy cheeks.
She had been too shocked by his face earlier and did not think to ask for his contact, let alone even try to remember the registration number of the car.
She was doomed.
Ning City was huge. How was she going to find him?
