To Love You Again Book 2 Chapter 367
'He is mad. Linfeng is mad.'
Xiong Zhi bowed her head more.
"I was careless. I am sorry, I should have protected myself better," Xiong Zhi whispered.
If Linfeng was kissed by another woman, she probably would be just as mad.
Behind her, the man finally took a deep breath to stabilize his sudden killing intent. He raised his hand and gently combed the frozen girl's hair, hoping to calm her down and placate her.
To think that Zhi'er was actually bullied without him knowing it. His eyes flashed with a dangerous light.
'To that someone, I cursed you.'
"Don't be afraid. I am not mad at you. Tell me the whole story." His voice now was a lot gentler, but the veins on his hand showed his suppressed anger.
Xiong Zhi sighed in relief and carefully told him what happened.
This talk occupied their whole afternoon as Linfeng asked her questions after questions, as to why she still helped out that man who forcefully harassed her, why she has to meet him in these past two years even though they have graduated, who she usually meet with, etc.
Throughout the 'interrogation', Linfeng calmly hugged her and patted her head from time to time. His voice and caresses were gentle, like he was not mad at all.
However, the more he stayed calm and gently coax her, the more it made her uneasy.
"So you met him every month in the past two years that I am gone?"
Suddenly, a great amount of guilt poured into her heart. Her meetings with Lu Yin Ze was pure business, but why was it that when Linfeng said it, it sounded so scandalous?
As if she gave him a green hat.
Xiong Zhi felt nervous again. Clearly, the voice asking her was gentle, but something felt amiss. She was about to turn around but Linfeng held her in place with his embrace.
"It's okay," he soothed her. "Just tell me, I'm curious." There must be a reason.
Linfeng did not want her to see his chilled eyes. He really wanted to kill a certain bug, but he did not want to scare off his Young Miss. However, he felt a bit betrayed.
Xiong Zhi should know that bug's feelings for her, yet she still met up with him. Regularly. And even got kissed. He closed his eyes and tried to hold back the sour feeling in his heart.
To think someone dared to touch his young miss, on the sacred lips at that!
'To that sc.u.m, you can die.'
Xiong Zhi gulped.
"Yes, I have to meet him. There's a lot of important business we needed to discuss."
"..important business?" What kind of important business a man and a woman left alone would discuss?
"Purely business. I make sure I won't stay longer than an hour." She emphasized.
'More than an hour? That's too long! A minute should be enough!' Linfeng grumbled inside.
Suddenly, she felt a stinging pain on her neck.
Linfeng just bit her neck!
She was about to stiffly turn around when she felt a hot, rough, and wet sensation on her neck.
Her body stiffened.
Did... did Linfeng just lick her neck?
"Then what did you do when you met up with him? Just talk for an hour?" His voice was now dangerously deeper.
Xiong Zhi shuddered.
"...Y-yes, after our talks, I would always leave immediately and not stay for a meal."
Another bite. She flinched. It did not really hurt, but she felt really weird.
"So that bug wanted to invite you to meals?" His tone was ominous.
"I did not stay or eat with him."
"Did he give you gifts?"
"..." Xiong Zhi did not want to answer! She felt that her answer would lead to serious consequences.
It was a dangerous feeling, yet it made her stomach fill with butterflies.
Linfeng's hands were moving. The large pair of warm hands circled on her stomach slowly rubbed... upwards.
"Did you receive any?"
"*gasp* I-I...did at first. But not anymore!" She quickly added the last sentence. The tingles on her nerves grew, and she could feel her bones softening.
Clearly, Linfeng was angry!
"Oh..." A chilling 'oh' sounded.
"Those gifts...where are they now?"
"I gave them to my servants, after I realized I should not receive any gifts from other men, other than you."
'So she just realized the point of that matter just recently?'
Linfeng grazed his teeth and kissed her neck. Xiong Zhi's eyes already were misty, her body soft, and her thoughts mushy.
"You did a good job."
This thought eased him a bit. Right, his young miss was so innocent and could be easily taken advantage of when she wasn't truly aware of the situation.
However, the thought that someone touched her still annoyed him to death. This was a feeling he could not ignore.
'To that douchebag, he can rot to hell.'
Linfeng's dark eyes looked at the sun on the horizon, which started show a golden orange color. The wind became a bit colder. The talk unexpectedly lasted for a whole afternoon.
From their talk, he learned that his Young Miss was obliged to help that brat with his family issues. He did not know the whole story or the reason for it, but it might be related to Xiong Zhi's secret. The secret that he noticed his Young Miss wanted to hide deeply.
So he did not dig deeper. His mind also could not really concentrate on that, at this moment. His mind was full of murderous thoughts to kill a certain someone and pull out their stinking tongue.
How dare that man still had the face to talk to his Young Miss. Just thinking about it made him infuriated. He made a decision at this moment to not let the two alone no matter what. And he would surely make that guy knew his place regardless of the sc.u.m's surname.
"Young Miss, it seems you have committed so many mistakes, what shall I do with you now?"
"..." Xiong Zhi woke up from her daze and felt nervous again. Was Linfeng really angry at her?
Linfeng sensed that her body became stiff once more. His heart turned soft and his murderous aura lessened greatly.
Sigh. He could not really get angry at his sweet Young Miss. He hugged her tighter.
"Shall I punish you?"
"...You can," she said with remorse. She now thought, if Linfeng also regularly met up with a woman who obviously liked her without her knowing it, she would feel hurt as well.
It was her fault, her fault for being careless.
"But Linfeng, for the punishment, I hope it won't be... to not see you for a long time. Anything other than that, because that would be really hard."
Linfeng paused. Then he sighed again.
Ah, Young Miss, my dear Young Miss. How can I get angry at you like this?
Don't you realize how easily you tempt me with these ignorant and guileless words?
His eyes turned darker, but for a different reason this time.
He suddenly carried her up. Xiong Zhi yelped and hugged his neck.
"It looks like our barefoot walk will be cancelled today. Let me give you my punishment now."
His large strides then turned to the resort not far away from them.
