Chapter 58: Matchmaking (2)
When Chen Sinan heard his name called so intimately, he retracted his hand from the car door, turned, and said, “We’re not that close, Miss Lai. You don’t need to call out to me like we are.”
“You don’t like it when I do that?”
After seeing his total disregard for her feelings, Miss Lai could feel the rim of her eyes reddening as she stood in front of him.
Chen Sinan could only say that he was entirely uninterested when he realized she was about to cry. Her eyes watered up, and the sight made him want to get in his car and drive off.
However, to his surprise, Miss Lai leaped towards his torso. She was scared that he’d push her away, so she used all her might to lock her arms around his waist.
Chen Sinan didn’t expect that the daughter of a respectable family would act so repulsively.
“Let go.” He scowled, hesitant to break her grip. The thought of touching her skin, with his very own hands, made him shudder. He didn’t want his hands to suffer.
Miss Lai held on as if her life depended on it. If she let go, she’d probably never have the chance to see him again. She could forget about ever getting close to him.
She sobbed desperately. “Do you hate me that much? Do I look that ugly to you? Why do you have to avoid me! If you hate me, then why did you agree to meet me back then? Sinan, you stole my heart but treat me like this… What do you want me to do? I live in an endless world of sufferingーI think of you every day, and I always wonder how you’re doing. Have you ever thought of me? Even just a little bit is fine…”
Chen Sinan steeled himself and quickly grabbed both of her arms while forcing her backward.
Miss Lai didn’t expect him to push her away so rudely. She didn’t pay attention for a split second, and suddenly she was sitting on the ground after landing right on her tailbone. She was stupefied.
Chen Sinan turned to glare at her as she sat on the ground. She was crying so violently that her eyeliner was everywhere. “Don’t pull something like this again. It’s obvious you could never be with me, and I’m not someone you can just get close to,” he said.
Miss Lai watched in fear as he threatened her without a single indication of emotion. She turned pale as she recalled everyone’s warnings. What they say about him is true. He’s immune to anything a woman would use on a man, she thought to herself.
Chen Sinan drove off and left Miss Lai with a face full of dust. She sat on the ground, coughing loudly and feeling hopeless. Her status had held her high above the masses, so she was always well received. She was praised by her elders since she was a child, and countless men wanted her, yet somehow she was utterly humiliated!
After standing upーtears still in her eyesーshe rushed into her own car and fixed her makeup. She sorted her torrent of thoughts and made a call. “Shi Shi, your idea was completely idiotic! Chen Sinan didn’t even fall for it!”
The voice on the other side of the phone responded calmly. “You saw him?”
“Have you made him hate you because of your usual haphazard behavior?”
Miss Lai suddenly fell silent.
“I told you to get his grandpa to like you first, but you decided to throw yourself at him the moment you saw him. How is any of that my fault?”
Ms. Lai was aggravated by the indifferent tone she received, and the first thing she would have done was to snap back at her cousin; if not for the fact that she was at a loss for words. Maybe she was a bit impulsive.
“It’s fine. But how was it that easy for that Xin family bitch to get Chen Sinan? All she did was act… weird, and drew everyone’s attention in the process. Just look at Chen Sinanーhe didn’t show a hint of emotion. If you want to make him like you, then prepare for a long war. If you decide to give up after failing once or twice, you may as well quit like that bitch did.”
Shi Shi was proud of herself whenever she remembered about Xin Siyue. Who told Xin Siyue to act so arrogant and full of herself? Xin Siyue became much more obedient after I taught her a lesson. I heard that she doesn’t nag Chen Sinan anymore, and went back to A City instead.
