"Where's Yue? What do you want? I'll give it to you, I'll give it to you. I can give you the money, I can give you the money. "Don't you dare hurt the people around me, please." Chen Xi knew that she had no chance of winning against Han Aotian.
There was already a huge gap between their statuses. No matter how unwilling Chen Xi was, she would always lower her head in front of Han Aotian.
Han Aotian was stunned. When he heard his assistant tell him that Chen Xi was emotional, he did not believe it. A weak girl, no matter how excited she was, she wouldn't do much more than that.
However, when he looked at Chen Xi kneeling on the floor with her head lowered, he felt very uncomfortable. If you were extremely uncomfortable, you would be so irritated that you would want to beat someone up.
"Chen Xi, get up and speak. Don't make me do anything I don't want to do." Looking at Chen Xi's expression, Han Aotian felt annoyed and didn't feel happy at all.
Chen Xi didn't dare to disobey Han Aotian. She stood up slowly, but kept her head down from beginning to end. Han Aotian became more agitated as he couldn't see Chen Xi at all.
After taking a few steps back and forth, Han Aotian said coldly, "Lift up your head."
Chen Xi was frightened out of her wits. Gritting her teeth, she stiffly lifted her head.
Han Aotian was shocked when he saw Chen Xi's face. Chen Xi's clean face was already wet from her tears. She looked to be in a very sorry state.
"What are you crying for?" Han Aotian asked with a smile on his face, staring coldly at Chen Xi.
"Nope." Chen Xi clenched her teeth and forced herself to answer.
"Is Ling Xun important? Chen Yue was also very important? Can you do anything for them? " Han Aotian asked with a complicated expression.
This time, Chen Xi finally had the courage to meet Han Aotian's eyes, "Han Aotian, I'm different from you. We were born in two different worlds. What you feel disdain for is precious to me. Just like you think a million is not worth mentioning, but to me, that money is a lifesaver. Therefore, we are not on the same side, how can you understand my feelings? "
Chen Xi wiped away her tears and gave a self-deprecating laugh, "You might think I'm too self-conscious, or even feel disgusted with me. But I don't know what I can get for a million. Are you asking me if Ling Xun and Yue mean anything to me? Han Aotian, if you have someone you really want to cherish, you will understand. Sometimes, it's not because they're very important that you do it, but whenever they need me, I would throw my life away. "
No one had ever dared to say such a thing in Han Aotian's life.
To ask him why he didn't feel pity for Chen Xi, on the contrary, he felt pity for Chen Xi. But compassion didn't mean anything. He said he wasn't a softhearted person, and he wasn't a philanthropist.
However, this Chen Xi, brave and strong, without a care for her own safety, was really attractive. No wonder his brother was so enthralled. Thinking of this, Han Aotian's eyes darkened, he didn't even have the last bit of sympathy anymore. Chen Xi might have been the one to make her brother fall just like that.
"Chen Xi, I don't want to hear all this from you. None of this makes any sense to me. I just want you to take care of your body as soon as possible to fulfill your obligations. As for the people you care about, I won't make things difficult for them until then. But if you don't, I don't know what I'll do. " After saying that, Han Aotian walked out of the bedroom and slammed the door.
For the next week, Han Aotian only asked Chen Xi to stay out of the house. Even if there weren't any people following or monitoring her, Chen Xi didn't dare to run around. She could not afford to offend someone like Han Aotian.
But for a week Chen Xi did not see Han Aotian again. Naturally, he wouldn't take the initiative to mention it. After all, it wasn't the time for them to meet.
The place where Han Aotian placed Chen Xi under house arrest was a villa close to the sea. It wasn't too big, but it looked very warm and cozy. What interested Chen Xi the most was that there were a lot of books that Chen Xi really liked in the study room, and they were limited edition ones at that.
Chen Xi couldn't help but sigh at Han Aotian's taste. Other than the things he did, Han Aotian was a very charming man.
Today, Chen Xi was reading a Bible in her study when someone knocked on the door. Chen Xi was curious as everyone here knew her. She didn't like to be disturbed while reading. Previously, they had called her over to eat when it was time. It had only been half an hour, and he was already knocking on the door.
Chen Xi put down the book, but didn't open the door. She shouted towards the door, "I don't want to eat right now."
The sound of knocking on the door had disappeared. Just as Chen Xi was about to pick up her book and continue reading, the door opened again. Chen Xi put down the book and was about to say something when she looked up and saw Han Aotian, whom she hadn't seen for a week.
Chen Xi stood there dumbfounded, not daring to say a single word.
"What? You don't welcome me?" Han Aotian smiled, he seemed to be in a good mood.
Chen Xi immediately lowered her head to avoid looking at Han Aotian and said, "No."
Han Aotian didn't mind. He walked gracefully in front of Chen Xi. Looking at Chen Xi's cowering appearance, he suddenly felt that she was rather cute.
"I thought you would resist." Han Aotian said lightly.
Chen Xi was shocked and raised her head to look at Han Aotian, realizing that she had fallen into his trap. However, it was too obvious when he lowered his head again. He could only look at Han Aotian without saying anything.
Han Aotian smiled. He was stunned when he saw the Bible in Chen Xi's hands, which had yet to be put down.
"You believe in Christianity?" He didn't know that Chen Xi would actually like this kind of book.
"I didn't believe it. I just thought it was pretty good, so I brought it over for a look." "He would occasionally read some of the scriptures, but he was just reading them. It's not like he's an expert." Chen Xi answered honestly.
Only then did Chen Xi realize that she was still sitting on the chair while Han Aotian was standing. This posture was a bit strange, so Chen Xi had no choice but to stand up.
"You are a patient. It would be better for you to read more books on cultivation." Han Aotian said plainly as he automatically ignored Chen Xi's actions.
Chen Xi nodded as she was taught.
"But now that I'm hungry, I finally made a trip here. Why don't you accompany me to eat?" Although Han Aotian said it casually, but Chen Xi didn't dare to disobey.
"Alright." Chen Xi replied obediently.
Because of Han Aotian's arrival, dinner was very sumptuous. Usually, when Chen Xi ate her own meals, she would act in a simple manner, but when Han Aotian came, it seemed as if all the best people had come. Chen Xi secretly slandered Han Aotian's extravagance for a while before carefully picking up the bowl and chopsticks to eat.
Chen Xi was not picky with food, but she preferred sweet and spicy food. However, the taste of Han Aotian was very light. Chen Xi couldn't eat anymore after a few bites.
"Unpalatable?" As Han Aotian watched Chen Xi nibble, he knew that Chen Xi didn't like these dishes.
