Chapter 3.1: What Is Your Sign?
Lin Huayin was like an active volcano on the verge of eruption, completely berserk…
Xiao Zheng, that man really infuriated her to death!
How can such a man exist in these days? Wearing clothing the style close to the 1980s, an old-fashioned uncouth youth whose mouth was venomous and sharp; his appearance lowly and vile and eyes red and swollen like he hadn’t slept for three days and three nights. He exuded a frivolous aura like a vagabond in the streets.
Was this really the man who’ll soon sign the marriage contract with her?
Thinking back to how she shared a bed with such scum and she gave away her twenty-seven years of precious purity like that out of her drunkenness, she felt overcome with fury that she no longer wished to live on.
Many knew the new money woman, Lin Huayin, was notorious for hear loath towards the opposite sex let alone having too much contact with men. They’d even feel a sense of disgust for their existence simply by the mere look of the Ice Goddess’ gaze looking down on them. Nevertheless, there were several young masters of affluent families who, though tried their best was in total failure as they made all sorts of a fortuitous encounter with the Ice Goddess. They did their best, yes, but it was not enough, because, in the end, all of them were splashed with cold water and turned away, their face flushed with a deep tinge red of embarrassment.
On the other hand, there were less than fifty men among the thousands of staff members in New Arcana Group. The men who worked there regarded it as a paradise of heaven, but simply put, the lack of the opposite sex in New Arcana Group was a visual image of Lin Huaying’s aversion towards the opposite sex.
But now, not only was the number one pearl beauty’s precious garden was snatched away by him, Xiao Zheng, he was left without a choice but to sign a marriage contract with her.
The Ice Goddess viciously lashed out on him, accusing him of taking away her purity over and over again, but to Xiao Zheng’s point of view, it looked like the pride of the heavens lost her sense of control.
But he did not know that when the ice-cold beauty was at the age of fourteen, her happy family broke apart and since then, her small heart had been filled with the fear of marriage and resentment towards men.
The following years after, her attitude towards marriage and men still did not improve. On the contrary, her issues deepened and had even decided she’d not marry nor start a family of herself for the rest of her life. She devoted herself to this cause like she breathed it in the morning when she woke up and ‘till night when she slept.
However, things never turned out as one would hope for.
On a dark and windy howling night, due to her mood being at the lowest, she hopped on a luxurious sedan and went to a bar to indulge herself in alcohol for the first time. Turns out she met a person and experienced a sinful pleasure in her moments of intoxication.
The most fatal thing that happened after the night of sinful pleasure, she consulted the doctor again and again and determined Lin Huayin had a high success of getting pregnant that very night.
“As long as both men and women are healthy and vigorous, chances of pregnancy are as high as ninety percent.”
The doctor’s factual firm conclusion pushed Lin Huaying down to the darkest pits of the abyss where all she could see was chaos.
Pregnant? A child?
She was destined to marry, huh?
The shadows of her childhood caused her to fear marriage and despise men, but however, if she were to become pregnant, she’d have no choice but to make sure her offspring has a harmonious family.
She did want her child to repeat her childhood living in an endless abyss of pain like her.
Lin Huayin knew that place was cold, dark, and no way out.
Therefore, she despaired and sought many help to find Xiao Zheng’s whereabouts and asked, no, pleaded him to sign the contract marriage and set a conservative deadline of two months. If he chose not to make his appearance, the contract would automatically expire. The two of them would go their separate ways owing to each other nothing. Even if she was pregnant…
Lin Huaying resigned herself to the wheels of fate.
She’d start a family with a stranger, a man who she’d only met.
She’d do this for the sake of giving her child a happy childhood.
But she was full of bitterness, really.
The man challenged her bottom line of patience time and time again, provoking her with words of mockery. She could see it his eyes and this infuriated her. She’d always been the one in the higher position, making swift and decisive decisions, but in this matter, she was left without a choice, so it angered her and she felt like she’d die any moment.
Since you want to humiliate me, then I will sacrifice my life and die together with you!
The knife she brought along with her exposed her extreme nature without a doubt; it exposed the hidden issues she had.
Upon seeing the Ice Goddess draw her knife, Lawyer Deng took two steps back in a hurried mess of panic, afraid that he would be caught in a crossfire which he had no part in nor did he want to.
For God’s sake, this was a forced job!
Xiao Zheng, on the other hand, stared at Lin Huayin, whose delicate and luscious figure trembled as her pale face turned ashen. He smiled inwardly and praised her from the bottom of his heart. “Even your anger is beautiful beyond belief. I can’t help but be seduced by you.”
“I’ll kill you!”
