For a moment, all was quiet and still.
She didn’t know for how long Si Zhengting had been standing there and how much of the conversation he had overheard.
He was wearing a white shirt. His tall and slender stature appeared so cold and estranged in the moonlight. His surroundings were filled with a cold air that could keep people at a distance of a thousand miles away from him.
No variation in emotion could be seen from his sharp eyes. Yet, his sharp gaze made people feel even more fearful than when he flared up, because at this very moment, monstrous, surging waves were stirring up in those pair of eyes.
While he looked at her like this, Zhuang Nainai could only feel a strong pressure constricting her. The surrounding atmosphere congealed together, making it difficult for her to breathe.
He was too scary, to the extent that her brain had momentarily short-circuited.
Zhuang Nainai opened her eyes widely while she was trying to recall what she had said just now. After connecting the first and last few sentences, Zhuang Nainai suddenly realized what Si Zhengting had misunderstood. She hastily took a step forward and explained, “Si Zhengting, listen to me, things aren’t how they appear, I…”
“How much money did you take?”
He was holding back his anger as he asked coldly. Upon listening carefully, she found that his voice was quavering.
Upon hearing this sound, Zhuang Nainai strangely felt her heart tighten. It wasn’t easy for him to ease up these few days, was he on the verge of freezing again right now?
No, she had to explain things clearly.
Zhuang Nainai’s throat tightened as she tried very hard to swallow her saliva. “Listen to me, things aren’t how they seem! It’s your mother, she…”
Before she could finish her sentence, the man in front of her suddenly stepped forward and clasped her chin tightly with his fingers that were like iron pincers, making her raise her head to face him.
A deep sense of regret flashed across Si Zhengting’s eyes in an instant. “Answer my question, how much money did you take?”
Just how much money could compare with his position in her heart?
He had thought of all kinds of reasons that had caused her to leave him suddenly back then. Yet, only this reason didn’t come across his mind.
When she said that Madam Ding had done something bad to her, he believed her without any hesitation. He was even thinking about how he should make it up to her, but now?
Was it because she had promised Madam Ding not to say anything about what had happened back then, or was it because… she felt ashamed to say it?
As he thought about it, his fingers unconsciously exerted more strength.
Zhuang Nainai felt that her chin was about to break; she was in so much pain that tears formed around the rim of her eyes. She wanted to explain herself but the words were stuck in her throat. She opened her big eyes widely and stared at Si Zhengting, knowing that if she doesn’t clear things up now, they would never be able to reconcile.
Things have already come to this point, what was she still concerned about?
Zhuang Nainai bit her lips and went straight to the point, “Si Zhengting, your mother did something wrong to my mother…”
Before she could finish her sentence, the man in front of her abruptly raised his voice, “How much money?”
Zhuang Nainai was so startled by his loud voice, her whole body trembled. The words that she had wanted to say were stuck in her throat again.
She was seized with terror and looked at him…
Whether it was five years ago or five years later, Si Zhengting had never been so extreme.
Five years ago, when he was angry, he would ignore her at the most.
Five years later, he was resorting to ruthless and vicious methods. Once one had offended him, even when he flared up, he would merely act indifferently. No matter how malicious his words were, his tone would remain unchanging.
His two eyes were filled with a sinister and ruthless gaze as he pinched her chin again with even more force. Zhuang Nainai was in so much pain that she felt that her bones were about to break into pieces.
She was already scared of him, to begin with. At the thought of his revenge tactics, at the thought of him forcing a tattoo onto her body, at the thought of him pressing down Boss Huang’s hands onto the hot plate back then, his usual tricks appeared before her eyes, little by little… making Zhuang Nainai feel extremely fearful at this very moment.
