Yun Shishi struggled in the darkness to open her eyes. In her grogginess, she saw a tall silhouette beside her that was almost blocking the lights out!
She did her best to have a look but was unable to make out who the person was. She could only vaguely perceive the man's unwavering brilliance!
Right now, she was so tense and wary of everyone around her that his menacing aura awakened her instantly.
She let out a scream and backed off instantly.
The man leaned forward slightly, and with his long arms, swept her into his familiar, warm embrace.
"It's me; don't be scared."
His deep and soothing voice rang above her head.
Soon, his familiar, unique, fresh scent wafted into her nostrils, reassuring her immensely!
The moment she heard his baritone voice, she knew intuitively that she was home, safe and sound!
She fell into his broad and warm embrace and coiled her arms around his waist; her unsettled heart was finally able to rest!
She had lots of grievances to tell him but did not know where to begin.
Shame-filled tears rolled down her face.
She tried to stop herself from whimpering, but the moment she opened her mouth, her voice broke. "Mu Yazhe…"
It trembled hoarsely.
Her whole body, which was still in shock, shook uncontrollably!
"Eh, I'm here!" responded the man firmly and reassuringly, hugging her trembling body closer to him!
"You… Why are you late?"
He was dumbstruck.
"I waited so long for you; why did you only appear at this point?" This sounded like a forlorn accusation and an unhappy complaint.
He was omnipotent like a god to her.
Why are you here only now?
Why didn't you appear earlier?!
Why didn't you show up earlier at my most desperate plight?
The man clenched his fists tightly as he snuggled her closer to him.
Her words tore at his heart like a sharp blade, causing it to throb in pain.
Amassing the love and tenderness in his eyes, he dropped a kiss between her eyebrows. "I'm sorry I'm late!"
His deep and magnetic voice reverberated in her ears.
As her lips trembled, her tears broke through her last line of defense!
All her humiliation, grievances, terror, and fear rolled down her face with her tears.
He held her fair and jade-like chin and kept soothing her with his soft kisses on her face. His lip flaps marked the corner of her eyes, kissing away her bitter tears, the center of her forehead, nose tip, cheeks, and finally, her mouth.
Her mood calmed a bit under his patient coaxing, and her body relaxed at last.
She remained panicky, though, as the terror in her heart could not dissipate entirely.
Her encounter tonight would definitely leave an indelible mark in her mind.
His rage surged uncontrollably at this juncture.
There was only one thought in his mind.
Who on earth is so bold to do this?!
This woman whom he treasured had been bullied to such an extent.
Who the h*ll dared to bully my woman this way?!
