I’d like to thank to zlizard (@lizardtranslations) for their translation of chapter 7, I used it as a reference as I drafted this chapter. (づ｡◕‿‿◕｡)づ
He’d rather she blame him, condemn him, or demand an explanation from him. It was at least better than her leaving without a word. Doing so meant she completely didn’t care about him, and that she wanted to brush off all of his good intentions. How could he not be mad?
Tang Xin Lian suddenly remembered something, and nervously asked, “Where are Xiang Ping and Cheng Cheng?”
“What do you think?” He asked while grinding his teeth in rage.
“What have you done to them? I was the one who decided to do this, so whatever anger you have should be directed towards me. This doesn’t concern my friend or Cheng Cheng, so don’t hurt them.”
Hearing this tone, it was clear to him that she thought he was a despicable and shameless person. To put it simply, she had put him in the same category as Yuan Jun Hao. All of the good deeds he had done were wasted.
Since she didn’t appreciate his attempts to please her, he didn’t feel like explaining himself, so he just followed her lead.
“So you also know how to beg for mercy?” He said bitterly.
Her eyes reddened. “Since you’ve found me, I’ll admit defeat. But I’m begging you to not hurt them. As long as you promise to not hurt them, I… I’ll be at your disposal.”
Originally, Zhong Zhen Dong was only annoyed, but after he heard her say, “I’ll be at your disposal,” his eyes flashed.
“Really? You’ll be at my disposal?”
She dejectedly nodded her head.
Zhong Zhen Dong was thrilled. In order to not scare the little white rabbit away, he had continuously controlled his desires, and hid a few personality traits, because he was afraid she wouldn’t like it. At first, he was really annoyed with her heartlessness. She had discarded all of his hard work, but now, she said that she was at his disposal.
Since no matter what he did, she only remembered his misdeeds and not the good things he had done, then he was going to just follow her lead.
“Since you said it, you have to own up to it.” He smiled evilly. “It’s good that we can say everything clearly, that way we can avoid misunderstandings later on.”
In front of her, he had always played the role of a gentleman because he knew she was sensitive, shy, and had a heart that was very prone to being hurt. That’s why, in order to win her over, he became what she wanted, which was a gentle prince figure.
The real him was actually not as gentle and courteous as his outward appearance presented. His style was more powerful and violent, and he had good control over his desires. He was someone who did what he pleased.
Tang Xin Lian shuddered after seeing his evil, leering expression.
“You really are two-faced, a wolf in sheep’s clothing. I was stupidly deceived by you.”
“A wolf in sheep’s clothing? If you say so, but you should understand that this wolf has a habit. Once the meat is in its mouth and is swallowed, it’s impossible to spit it back out.”
Tang Xin Lian’s entire body stiffened. She was still sitting on his leg, so she was able to feel the change in his lower half; there was a hard object pressing against her. He watched her possessively.
As Zhong Zhen Dong hugged her, he was able to guess her thoughts from the subtle reactions from her body. His lips lightly brushed against her ear, and with a low, husky voice, he said, “What should we do? I’m already having a reaction from just hugging you.”
“…” What could she say? She didn’t dare say anything. She only lowered her head, not daring to move.
“How about this, if you think of a way to help me resolve it, I’ll release your friend and your son.”
She knew he would suggest this, and also knew that if she didn’t comply, she wouldn’t know what happened to Xiang Ping and her son. She could only resign herself, and reluctantly nod her head.
When she nodded, Zhong Zhen Dong’s mood brightened. He was originally angry at her heartlessness, but right now, he felt like it was a blessing in disguise. No matter what, now that she was in his hands, whether she was willing or not, he was definitely not letting her go.
Zhong Zhen Dong took her hand and walked out with her.
“Where are you taking me?” She hurriedly asked.
“You said you would be at my disposal, so why do you need to ask?”
“Wait! Where’s my son?”
“You’ll see him in a moment.”
“Then what about my friend…” She stopped midway due to receiving his glare, and couldn’t help but shrink back.
“Since I’ve already promised you, I won’t hurt her.” What a heartless little white rabbit, she really considered him to be scum.
According to Zhong Zhen Dong’s standards, he felt he did nothing wrong. When a man liked a woman, it was only natural for him to exhaust his mind in thinking of ways to chase and capture her. It’s just that his method didn’t conform with the little white rabbit’s moral standards.
Due to Zhong Zhen Dong’s orders, Tang Xin Lian’s luggage was already packed and in the car. She thought they were going to the airport, but when the car stopped, she was shocked.
Her eyes widened as she stared at the small airplane in front of her. She looked at him skeptically.
“My private jet.” Zhong Zhen Dong said proudly. He was very satisfied with her shocked and amazed response. He felt that he shouldn’t hold himself back anymore. It was time the little white rabbit knew how powerful her man was, and perhaps it would even cause her to admire him a little.
But Zhong Zhen Dong once again overestimated the little white rabbit’s train of thoughts. Not only did she not admire him, she felt even more fearful of him. She suspected Zhong Zhen Dong was an underworld boss; someone involved in drug trades, smuggling, etc. Otherwise, how could he be this wealthy?
