Chapter 49: When the Lion Isn’t Home (2)
Seeing that she said nothing and looked at himself in confusion, Chen Xiuqi humphed coldly at her. He tugged the tie on his neck and walked towards her in large strides.
“Didn’t– didn’t you say that you aren’t going to be back today?” Su Yaya finally snapped out of her trance and looked at Chen Xiuqi.
Chen Xiuqi stood in front of her bed and held her chin up with his slender and long finger, making her raise her head. He slightly squinted and looked at her with a tint of danger in his eyes. He said softly, “If I don’t come back, what do you plan on doing?”
Meeting his dangerous gaze, Su Yaya’s heart thumped rapidly and loudly, as if her heart was about to jump out of her chest. She nervously fisted her hands on her side and gulped. She said shyly, “I, I don’t plan on doing anything.”
He’d be stupid to believe her!
He curled his lip and half-smiled, “Do you plan on tearing down the house?”
This was a frightening question. She felt as if she dared to say yes then he would tear her apart.
Su Yaya was a coward and couldn’t help but shiver. Out of her instinct to survive, she hurriedly said, “How could that be? This is our house! I don’t even have time to treasure it. Why would I do that? Heh!”
Chen Xiuqi said “oh”, purposefully dragging the letter. He clicked his tongue.
Su Yaya trembled as she heard this. Her instinct told her something bad was about to happen.
As expected, Chen Xiuqi asked, “Then who was the one that said that since the tiger isn’t home, they’ll be in charge of the house?”
She knew that she couldn’t avoid this. Ahhh!!
Su Yaya cried in her heart. If she admitted to this, she’d be done for. Therefore, she tried her luck. She pounced and hugged Chen Xiuqi’s waist, her desire to survive was evident. She stared at him with her big watery eyes and said in a miserable tone, “Not me. I didn’t. You must’ve heard wrong.”
She must submit in this situation.
Su Yaya knew to act according to the other person’s mood. When facing danger, she immediately submitted to the opposing party entirely.
After all, there wasn’t much she could do. All she needed to do was to soothe Chen Xiuqi. Who let Chen Xiuqi to be the male lead of this novel? Not only that, he’s the dominant CEO and her sugar daddy! She really couldn’t afford to offend him, otherwise, she might die!
Chen Xiuqi clearly didn’t expect her to suddenly throw herself in his arms. She reached over to hug him tightly and revealed a pitiful look like a little kitten. With a beauty in his arms, his heart softened instantly. He couldn’t keep the taut look on his face and laughed suddenly.
Chen Xiuqi didn’t expect Su Yaya to be terrified that quickly. He thought that she would at least persist for a while.
The truth is, this girl had pretended to be obedient and sensible in front of him. She sweetly called him hubby without a trace of unease and was really well-behaved. Plus, she was also very cute and adorable. His heart softened at her calling him hubby.
Who knew that the night he wasn’t home, she started to cause a ruckus. She really thought that she, a monkey, could flip the world over when he, a tiger, wasn’t home watching her? Never having seen anything like this, he couldn’t help but think: which side was the real her?
Was it the well-behaved and cute girl the real her? Or the wild girl who did as she wished whenever he wasn’t home the real her?
But thinking deeply about it, it seemed like whatever side of her was the real her, he thought she was very cute. He wanted to pamper her.
Chen Xiuqi was scared by his thought. It felt like he was in a spell.
