Chapter 44

Upon hearing the ringtone, they both awakened from their trance .

Yun Bixue looked at the man oozing with charm on top of her . He was frighteningly beautiful in that moment, and her heart could not stop quivering .

"You can't have a rainbow without a little rain . . . You ask me how deep my is love for you . . . " The two lines of lyrics kept looping .

Eventually, Yun Bixue gently pushed Xie Limo away . She picked up her clothes and put them on, her face still a little pink . Her eyes were still mesmerized .

She picked up the phone on the floor and looked at it . She didn't expect it to be Su Lenghan .

It felt like they hadn't called each other on the phone for a very, very long time . Her slender fingers were a little tense as she held the phone in her hands, staring blankly into space .

Xie Limo got up and rested against the chair beside him . His entire being was brimming with extravagant charm, and his body was a tempting sight .

He narrowed his eyes and asked softly, "Why aren't you answering?" His voice was husky and attractive, stirring the hearts of those who heard it .

Yun Bixue steeled herself and swiped her finger, picking up the call . "Hello!" Her voice was still lazy and soft from the passionate moment of just a second ago .

Su Lenghan's eyebrows ticked involuntarily . Hearing such a voice made him feel conflicting emotions .

In the three years they had known each other, he had never heard her voice sound so soft . It could almost melt his heart in an instant .

"Hello?" Yun Bixue's second greeting was a bit colder .

Su Lenghan fought to keep his emotions in check . "Bixue, I heard that you were discharged today . I've been wanting to visit you, but I couldn't enter the hospital . Are you alright?"

Yun Bixue felt that such a call was very random . However, when she remembered that he was the one who sent her and Xie Shiyi to the hospital that day, she answered softly, "I'm doing very well . Thank you for sending me to the hospital swiftly that day . I'll make sure to pay back the hospital fees . "

Although she had a cozy home now, she still felt some bitterness when she thought about Su Lenghan .

She'd spent three years waiting for the warmth of a family, but what she received was a clear view of the world's cruelty .

"Bixue, I'm not . . . " But he couldn't find a way to finish his sentence . He couldn't help but think of the scene where she asked to borrow money from him .

"Su Lenghan, if there's nothing else I'm going to hang up . If you're in a hurry, I'll transfer the money to you tonight . Tell me your account number . "

Since the day that she'd gotten injured at the Luxury Emperor Ballroom, she understood that this man's elegance was matched by his ability to be unfeeling .

Su Lenghan heard the busy tone from his phone and knew that she'd hung up . He didn't know how to describe what he was feeling . It was a mix between loneliness and disappointment . He found the silence in the room slightly irritating .

The chilly draft of deep autumn blew past the curtains and into the room, filling it with coldness . It helped him clear his head, and a hint of seriousness crossed his elegant features .

"Young Master Su . " When he came down the stairs, the servants on the first floor bowed respectfully . They could feel that Young Master Su was feeling a bit unhappy today .

"Lenghan, I'm at your house . I've brought some dumplings that my mother made . "

With a cheery sound, an image of the villa's gates appeared on the monitor inside the building's living room .

A servant pressed on a remote inside the house . The craved gates of the villa slowly opened . Meng Xinyan jumped into Su Lenghan's arms, still chilly from the air outside . "Lenghan, it's so cold outside . Your place is so warm though . "

"Fool, why didn't you wear more clothes since it's cold?" Su Lenghan's voice carried waves of tenderness, almost as though it could expel the chill from Meng Xinyan's body .

After indulging in some flirtation, Meng Xinyan entered the house and took off her overcoat . She picked up the phone he'd left on his table and looked at it . To her surprise, Yun Bixue was among the contacts that he'd dialed .
