Hearing the cold voice, Su Qianci froze and looked at him .
Li Sicheng was wearing a casual outfit that was loose . However, he still looked incredibly cold with his hands in pockets . Turning his head sideways, his eyes were glittering under the warm light .
Su Qianci’s heartbeat paused as she was mesmerized by the guy . His eyes were like magnets, drawing her in . She couldn’t run away .
Their eyes locked, Su Qianci clearly noticed that Li Sicheng’s eyes had become darker . As she looked away and tried to calm herself down, a rough hand grabbed her arm .
“Mr . Li, do you… need something?” She sounded nervous as hell .
Li Sicheng heard “Mr . Li,” slightly frowned, and tightened his grip around her arm, asking, “Shall we talk?” Although it was a question, he was not even waiting for her to answer . Su Qianci had to sit with him .
The wind blew through her hair, sending a strand next to his nose . Li Sicheng clearly smelled her shampoo . Reaching out a hand, he took the strand of hair into his hand, playing with it casually .
Smooth like silk .
“Why are you scared of me?” Li Sicheng asked .
Su Qianci had no idea that this was the first thing he’d ask .
Scared of him?
Maybe . When she had married him for the first time, she was not scared . Everyone said that Li Sicheng was a cold person, probably unable to fall in love . However, she did not care at all and repeatedly offended him . Although Tang Mengying was playing a significant role in that, Su Qianci knew that it was mostly because of her innocence and ignorance . Later on, Li Sicheng had hated her more and more . Each time he saw her, he had not dignified her with any kindness, not even in public .
Then, when Su Qianci had saved Li Sicheng from the fire and got her own look ruined, he had mistaken her for the mastermind behind the kidnapping and arson . From then on, he had hated her to the guts . Aside from her life and her identity as his wife, he had taken everything away from Su Qianci . And that’s when she had started to feel scared . She had felt scared for three years . For three years, with a scarred face, she did her best to avoid him whenever he was present . She felt insecure, but longed for him at the same time .
At that time, how she had envied Tang Mengying for being able to stand by his side in public and being recognized as a woman . However, she was destined to be a shadow in the dark world, which no one could see or care . In her new lifetime, it had been a habit of hers to be afraid of getting close to him . He was her deepest desire . She wanted him, but did not dare to have him .
She couldn’t afford it…
Su Qianci nodded but then shook her head . With a complex expression, Su Qianci looked up at his perfect face . They were actually talking about their relationship… It’s all felt like a dream .
Seeing Su Qianci nodding and then shaking her head, Li Sicheng asked again, “Am I scary?”
Su Qianci nodded .
Li Sicheng gazed at the ocean and said in a low voice, “You’re not being fair . ”
There was blame and frustration hidden in his voice, though hardly discernible .
