Chapter 72: I’ve Never Hugged You This Way Before
They walked hand in hand. It was getting dark and the street lights were on.
Lin Xin looked up at the street lights and smiled, “I had parents. My father was called Lin Moyuan, and my mother, Xie Cong Wen.”
“They were S University professors… No, they were S University professors in my previous life.”
She let go of Lin Xinyu’s hand, turned around and pointed at S University behind her.
“I grew up here. And since I didn’t like traveling to foreign countries, and didn’t want to be too far apart from my parents, I chose to study here.”
Lin Xinyu looked at her and smiled as if to say he knew everything.
“You knew about it?” Lin Xin asked.
Lin Xinyu shook his head and answered, “I don’t.”
Lin Xin remembered how her parents pampered her. Suddenly, she felt like she was the happiest person alive and that there was nothing for her to be sad about in this world.
In a flash of joy, she clung to Lin Xinyu’s hands and spun around playfully as if she was a flower fairy in an animated film.
This was the first time Lin Xinyu saw her acting like a little girl. All this time, he felt as if there was a missing piece in his heart, and only with Lin Xin could he feel less empty. However, seeing Lin Xin this way now, an overwhelming feeling welled up in his heart.
‘Gulp…’ His heart felt like it was about to jump out of his throat. It gave him a completely new feeling, as if he could chase the sun, making him fearless.
He happily lifted Lin Xin and gently stroked her neck. A faint waft of fragrance entered his nose. It felt like a strong wind had blown on water, sending a thousand ripples into his heart.
His heart was throbbing but he gritted his teeth and endured the pain.
He hugged Lin Xin tightly, afraid that she would notice that something was wrong with his body.
Lin Xinyu had loved hugging her since they were small, but he had never hugged her as tightly as he did right now. She patted his back and said, “Okay, let’s go home.”
“Yes.” He found it hard to move and his steps were rather small.
Seeing how Lin Xin walked ahead of him, he clenched his teeth, chased after her, and held her hand tightly.
“Eh? Why are your hands so wet? Are you not feeling well?” Lin Xin turned and asked.
“Oh, it’s nothing, just rainwater.”
While Lin Xin had a bizarre habit of analyzing others’ words, she was completely trusting towards people she cared for, believing whatever they said.
“It’s good that you’re fine then.”
Hand-in-hand, the two walked some more, not even hailing a taxi.
The rain had stopped, so they decided to just keep on walking.
After some time, they arrived at a secluded path and heard shouting coming from around the corner.
Lin Xin’s heart stiffened. She instinctively pulled Lin Xinyu’s hand and took a few steps back.
Lin Xinyu immediately understood what she meant and started to leave with her when, from out of the shadows, a tall guy suddenly came out swearing.
“With your kung fu alone, you still dare to block me? Hmph! Tell your boss that I, Zhao Zihao, am not afraid of him!”
