His face turned ugly at her words and malevolence glinted across his eyes.
"You want to say that again?" It was a warning in disguise.
This was to warn her not to antagonize him further.
She slowly backed onto the guardrail when the neglected railing gave off a crunching sound.
She watched his every move guardedly and said coolly, "I don't want you to touch me!"
'I am pregnant with Mu Yazhe's child.
'He went to you before because he thought that I am infertile. He's interested in you only because you have a unique connection to him! Now that I am pregnant, do you think you can still usurp my position in the Mu family? Are you trying to take an advantage here? Dream on!
'If he's truly serious with you, why didn't he break off our engagement?
'Why did he bed me when he was just intimate with you? Now, he got me pregnant. I am his future legal wife, while you are just his passing, secret fling!'
She clenched her fists tightly as her eyes looked dead with despondency.
The man glared at her again, his pretty eyes flaring red, and commanded icily, "You don't want me to touch you? Yun Shishi, I'll give you one more chance; take back your words and walk toward me."
Infuriated by her continued backward shift, he lambasted, "If you don't want me to touch you, then who do you want to touch you? Gu Xingze?"
"What has this got to do with Gu Xingze?!" She found him as ridiculous.
"How dare you talk about him again?!" He once more flared up uncontrollably when he heard her mention his name.
He recalled how he had ordered the air ticket to fly back overnight from London and saw the two of them hugging and kissing in the production set.
Although he knew very well that it was only acting, he was still insanely jealous!
She widened her eyes in disbelief; this man was really ridiculous!
He was the one to mention Gu Xingze first.
With bloodshot eyes, he uttered through clenched teeth, "If you mention his name again, believe it or not, I'll make him disappear!"
Angry and alarmed, she said, "I dare you!"
He stared sullenly at her. Seeing the way she defended the man only made his blood boil faster!
"You just watched!"
The fury in his eyes shocked the woman.
She spotted that his fist, which had been bleeding profusely due to the wooden splinters that puncture it when he had sent a punch through the blackboard, was now swollen and mangled, but he did not seem to feel the pain as he glared coldly at her like a predator looking at its prey.
She unconsciously backed away again, and then she heard the guardrail behind her creaking precariously.
These railings, on this windingly hilly road, were attacked by torrential rain and then exposed to the sweltering sun time and again. As the guardrail was already lacking in repair for some time, a cracking sound was soon heard from a hidden spot from the barrier.
She did not notice that, though, as she was caught in a great panic.
The man, meanwhile, was able to observe the danger behind her clearly. Terror flashed across his eyes as he howled, "Stupid woman, are you seeking death?! Come over here!"
She was scared by his furious roar into shakily taking a few more steps backward, which sent loose rocks beneath her feet tumbling off the cliff.
The man stared angrily at her. "Don't move!"
