Nan Zhi’s face heated up from his deep and dark gaze and ambiguous words. Turning to the side, she looked deliberately away from him, feeling unnatural and awkward. “Who seduced you? I don’t have any memory of it at all.”
Mu Sihan’s tall body moved towards Nan Zhi and she moved back naturally until her body touched the wall. She had nowhere else to go. Raising both her hands, she placed them on his shoulders to stop him from coming closer. “Young Master Mu, I’m being serious with you.”
Mu Sihan’s flawlessly handsome face leaned in front of hers. She was surrounded by a unique masculine smell that was distinctly him. “Say it then.”
Nan Zhi could not stand his gangsterish behavior. All she could do was lower her dense and long eyelashes since she could not push him away. In a hurry, she said, “You can’t spoil Xiaojie too much. I’m scared that he will get too used to this kind of luxurious life and won’t be able to get used to the drastic change when we leave.”
Mu Sihan pulled Nan Zhi’s hand and held it up to caress his handsome face. Nan Zhi felt like she was electrocuted and wanted to take back her hand. However, he held onto it tightly, refusing to let it go.
His black orbs stared at her petite face that was as fair as the finest piece of jade. In his usual conceited manner, he raised an eyebrow with the arrogance fitting of an emperor. “You want to leave that much? Do you think you can fall for another man after seeing my face?”
Nan Zhi did not have the chance to say anything else, when he pulled her hand again and placed it to his chest.
He was wearing a v-line black silk shirt that revealed the outline of his collarbones and firm chest. It was undeniably sexy and attractive. Her fingertips accidentally touched a small part of his chest when he pressed her hand against it. With one touch, she could feel his firm and taut skin, its warm temperature making her heart throb.
“Apart from my face, which other man’s body can compare to mine?” He pinched her fingertips. “Didn’t you and that colleague of yours think that I’m European-sized? Do you want to try touching it?”
Nan Zhi blushed. “Mu Sihan, you are such a shameless person.”
Who wants to touch?
Who cares if he’s European-sized?
Mu Sihan lifted Nan Zhi’s exquisite chin and continued, with a half-smile on his face. “It’s my business as to how I want to spoil your son and you during the contract period. I also wouldn’t let the two of you live a poor life, even after the contract ends. If a hundred million is not enough, I’ll give you a thousand million.”
Nan Zhi’s eyebrows furrowed even tighter.
Anger and helplessness grew in her heart.
What was he treating her as?
“Mu Sihan, do you know what I hate the most? I hate being a mistress that cannot be exposed. Yes, it’s true that you’re very good. Many people might think that they’ll be very lucky to be your mistress. However, for me, I don’t like it at all!
Nan Zhi was not stupid. She knew from the moment he forced her to sign that contract, that he was just playing with her and would not give her a home.
He could give her a thousand million, or even ten thousand million generously. He could also spoil her endlessly. However, he would never be able to give her what she wanted.
That was why she had never wondered, never allowed herself to delve deeper to consider whether she had any feelings for him. She kept controlling and suppressing herself, because she knew that she would be the one in pain the moment she let herself develop any real feelings for this man. It was better for both of them.
Mu Sihan was very handsome and was very good at touching a woman’s heart at the most appropriate times. Her heart was not made of steel, it would flutter too. She was only human.
However, she was a single mother. She was no longer the naive girl she once was, she knew her own identity, her status and circumstances. Love? She could not let herself fall and sink into something that left her so… vulnerable.
Mu Sihan’s deep black eyes stared at Nan Zhi’s fair face. “What do you want? Freedom? Don’t even think about it for the time being!”
Nan Zhi lifted her long lashes and looked into the darkness of his eyes. The gaze starting back at her was unbelievably deep and more than slightly overbearing. It gave her the illusion that he had very strong feelings for her.
Looking at him, Nan Zhi almost got enchanted by his affectionate gaze.
But she held herself back, she knew that he was only looking at another woman through her. It wasn’t her he was looking at. Never her.
This was probably the reason why he kept her by his side at all costs.
