Chapter 38: Banquet (3)
The lasting impression he had of her was when he unexpectedly saw her by the stairwellーher eyes bright and charming but hiding a certain pitiableness to them. He couldn’t see those eyes anymore, as all he saw in Xin Siyue’s eyes was unhappiness.
Chen Sinan looked at her eye lines and commented, “You didn’t do your eyes very well.”
Xin Siyue didn’t know if he was talking about her eyes or saying that her makeup didn’t look good. She retorted, “I don’t care if it looks good. I wasn’t planning on letting you see it anyways.”
Hmph! It’s good enough! Did he come here just to criticize my looks?
When Xin Qiancheng first saw her, he complimented her, saying she was beautiful. But this man was quite pickyーshe could feel it in his gaze.
After Xin Siyue comforted herself, she didn’t mind anymore. After all, it didn’t matter whether or not Chen Sinan thought she was beautiful. As long as he thought Sheng Wenyang was pretty, then it was fine.
Chen Sinan’s gaze naturally lowered, descending from her face to her snow-white shoulders and her beautiful collarbone. Even lower, he could see a faint hint of cleavage.
The sight was stunning, and even Chen Sinan found himself under its effects before he reluctantly averted his eyes.
Xin Siyue retorted as he awkwardly shifted his gaze. She thought that he finally realized that he said the wrong thing, wanting to continue to scold him when he coldly said, “Stand up.”
Xin Siyue didn’t understand. Chen Sinan shifted his gaze once again to look at herーto looking at her chest intently. Xin Siyue’s reaction was slow. When she lowered her head to meet the subject of his gaze, it finally hit her, and she stood up.
“You pervert!” she angrily exclaimed.
Chen Sinan curled his lips, “You’re the one not paying attention. Why are you blaming me?”
“Only you would look there.”
“If you didn’t wear that, who would look at it?”
“Chen Sinan, you’re twisting my words.”
“Do you guys know each other?” a pleasant female voice interjected as the two were arguing.
Xin Siyue was too tired to pay any attention to Chen Sinan. She turned in the direction of the voice to see a beautiful woman with wavy hair. The woman wore a dainty short skirt and was looking eagerly at Chen Sinan.
Xin Siyue had met her earlier. She seemed to be the granddaughter of the host. She seemed to be older than her by only a few years; she was beautiful, gentle, and had a pleasant voice.
Xin Siyue took a few more glances at her before smiling at Chen Sinan. Her eyes seemed to be saying, “Look! Look! Your peach blossom is here.”
Chen Sinan understood the look of pleasure she adopted whenever she saw another’s misfortune. He didn’t even turn to look at the unexpected guest. He suddenly smiled charmingly, and before she could react, he reached over to take Xin Siyue in his arms.
When Xin Siyue felt his warm palm on her waist, she was shocked!
As this happened, she tripped and threw herself on his chest.
Xin Siyue was confused.
Crap! Chen Sinan, what’s wrong with you! I stepped on my dress because of you!
She buried her head in his embrace, and Chen Sinan used the opportunity to place his other hand on her headーpreventing her from escaping. He smiled and coaxed, “Be good, now. When we get home, I can sleep in the study if you want to punish me.”
“Hu, hu, hu…”
You bastard! You’ve got a problem!
Xin Siyue desperately wanted to scream her thoughts.
While the other woman was stunned by the scene, Chen Sinan brought Xin Siyue out as she found herself half-carried and half-embraced by him.
