Chapter 89

The best debutante of days past had shed all her previous grandeur and was just as anxious as a commoner now . "Lenghan, you need to trust me, you have to trust me . " Meng Xinyan only felt a deep sadness in her heart now . Su Lenghan's apathy was too much for her to bear .

He wasn't like this in the past . He had been so gentle to her . After basking in his love and care, how could she accept his coldness now?

He should have hugged her . Instead, his eyes were cold, as though she was a stranger .

"Lenghan, please say something . Don't be like this . I feel very sad," said Meng Xinyan as she fought back her tears . She didn't care much for how she looked now—all she could think about was Su Lenghan .

Su Lenghan looked at the haggard and weak Meng Xinyan and finally gave in . He sighed softly and said, "This isn't the place to talk . Follow me to my office!"

Meng Xinyan hurriedly dried her tears that were on the verge of falling and caught up with Su Lenghan's footsteps . Entering the VIP lift, she kept her eyes on Su Lenghan who appeared distant . She wanted to say something but was only met with the urge to cry .

Ever since she could remember, she had been raised as a debutante . She had always cared for her public image . Otherwise, she wouldn't have been dubbed the best debutante in Ning An City . She was a goddess in many people's eyes .

However, all she could think about now was him . She could no longer hide her emotions . She just wanted to act out her feelings instinctively, even if that meant crying .

With a 'ding!', the elevator doors opened . Su Lenghan exited the elevator with grace and elegance . Meng Xinyan recovered from her thoughts and hurriedly followed in her heels . In her haste, she missed a step and sprained her ankle; she drew a sharp breath from the pain .

Su Lenghan turned around and saw Meng Xinyan following him with her sprained ankle . He pursed his thin lips and walked up to her . Lifting her with his arms, he carried her into his office .

Meng Xinyan lay cleverly in Su Lenghan's embrace and breathed a sigh of relief . She knew that she still had a place in his heart .

Entering the office, Su Lenghan placed Meng Xinyan on the sofa . He dialed a number on his cell phone and requested for the Su's family doctor to tend to Meng Xinyan's ankle .

Meng Xinyan asked with caution, "Lenghan, do you believe what they've been reporting in the news?"

Su Lenghan shut his eyes and said softly, "Xinyan, I've been very tired recently . " There wasn't any hint of discontent nor blame in his voice . It really did seem like he was exhausted, with a few worries in mind .

However, this kind of response was devastating to Meng Xinyan . She was absolutely flustered . With eyes wide open, she went up to him, ignoring the pain in her ankle . She hugged him tightly and leaned against his chest . "Lenghan, I will keep you company, and I'll make sure that you're well rested . It's all my fault . The news reports had it all wrong, they really did! My parents stopped me from seeing you . Surely you know that I can't say no to my parents' orders . . . I didn't mean to meet with that person . My father told me that he was a friend of his, and he asked me to go over all of a sudden . . . Lenghan, everything I'm telling you is the truth . You have to trust me!"

Meng Xinyan stumbled over her words as she hugged Su Lenghan even tighter . She rested her head against his heart, just as she did when they first got together . It seemed that this was the only way they could find that warmth they had felt at the beginning of their relationship .

After considering it for a long while, Su Lenghan extended his hand and returned Meng Xinyan's embrace . Taking in her scent, his disappointment only grew stronger .

Sensing that Su Lenghan was starting to get lost in his own thoughts, Meng Xinyan went on her tiptoes and pressed her lips against his . She kissed him gently, tracing the outline of his lips with her tongue .

Time passed slowly, and eventually, Su Lenghan hugged Meng Xinyan, cupped her head, and fervently returned her kiss .
