Chapter 648 The Film Tycoon’s National Sister (59)
He thought he had an auditory hallucination.
Perhaps the phrases “gege” and “I like you” were separate.
For example, she called him gege.
“I like you” could be said to other people.
To go to a more extreme point, “Gege” might be a personal name and have nothing to do with him.
Lu Zixi’s heart churned with a sour sensation that was both stifling and painful.
He could only hug her heless and soft body and comfort her softly, “It’s okay, I’ll settle everything soon. I won’t let people slander you like this.”
Bai Weiwei was silent for a few seconds. She suddenly lifted her head. Her eyes held a layer of mist, and her pink lips were pursed. She seemed to want to say something.
She spoke in a soft, muffled voice. “…”
Because she had raised her head, a touch of white was revealed beneath the pure-white neck and slightly loosened collar.
Lu Zixi’s eyes darkened by a few shades. He took a few deep breaths.
He suppressed the wild roaring in his heart.
When she was this vulnerable.
What was he thinking?
Bai Weiwei waved at the end, making her sound even sweeter and softer. “I like you.”
Lu Zixi finally understood.
She was truly looking at him, saying she liked him.
His brain was mush, even going so far as to deny it. “You like me?”
How could she like him?
The cage that Lu Zixi had painstakingly built could no longer contain the wild beast in his heart.
He had tried so desperately to press down his feelings for her.
If he lost control again, he couldn’t guarantee that he wouldn’t hurt her.
Her confession must be just a slip of the tongue in a moment of weakness.
And he believed it. If she regretted it later, he would never let her go.
Lu Zixi’s throat tightened, his reason in its dying struggles. “Don’t talk nonsense, Weiwei…”
Bai Weiwei sighed. There was a hint of resolution in her eyes.
For a moment, Lu Zixi’s brain wasn’t functioning.
He didn’t know how to react
Her faint fragrance surrounded him.
She was so powerless, so weak and simple.
Lu Zixi’s self-control wholly shattered.
His gaze was heated, his body was stiff, and the blue veins on his neck popped out from the exertion of holding back.
Bai Weiwei felt this should be enough to explain who she liked.
Standing on tiptoe was tiring, ah.
So she let go of him, separating her lips from him, and repeated, “I like you.”
Lu Zixi looked at her with a dark expression, then suddenly said: “Do you know what you’re saying?”
Bai Weiwei’s lips were bright red with a hint of moisture, and her wet eyes glistened as she looked at him. “I know.”
Lu Zixi’s breathing suddenly grew solemn. “Whether it’s because you’re hurting and you wanted to find someone, or because you wanted a temporary support in your time of weakness, so you looked for me, I don’t care anymore.”
Bai Weiwei watched him blankly. Suddenly, a smile unfurled on her face, and her voice trembled softly. “No, I’ve liked you since the first time I met you. When I found out you were my brother, I was so scared.”
Her smile gradually faded. “I was scared that I couldn’t like you.”
Those sour feelings in Lu Zixi’s heart finally bubbled up. His eyes were a bit moist, but his heart was joyful.
He hugged her harder. Gently placing his jaw on her head, he coaxed softly: “Don’t be afraid, I’m here, ne. If the heavens collapse, I’ll be there to carry you. What do you have to be afraid of?”
Piper: Outside of my research that I mentioned above (getting thief sites to credit our translators) I actually have another, more formal research project for an important research class. I wanted to do my research on Chinese Web Novels because I have access to lots of info about demographics, and can easily give surveys, but I’m not sure what research question to ask. Anyone got any ideas? Thank you very much for potentially trying to help me!
