"No, I'm not!" she retorted coldly, brushing aside his affection.
Her tone belied her words, though, as she sounded deeply displeased.
He reckoned that she was pissed off because he had carelessly thrown away the jewelry.
With a smile, he pressed close to her ear and intimately panted. "Little liar, you are obviously angry."
"I don't dare to be angry with you, almighty CEO Mu." She sniggered jestingly.
"In fact, you like that pendant, right?" His statement hit the jackpot as his gaze locked on to her fuming face.
"It belongs to you, so you can do whatever you want with it. What has that got to do with me?" She told him off brashly.
She did not realize that their exchange and behavior right now were plain flirting!
He smiled and knew deep down that she was playing hard to get!
She was rather dumb, though, and not thinking at the same time.
Did she really think that he could not tell how much she liked this pendant?
The man slowly opened his palm.
As if by magic, the necklace that he had supposedly thrown away rested quietly in the center of his palm, exuding a charming and gentle sheen under the bright moonbeam.
In fact, he could tell what she was thinking with just a look. She did not mean it when she said that she did not like it; it was just how a woman would behave when angry.
He could also tell that what she felt was the opposite – she liked it a lot.
He was just bluffing when he mimed throwing the necklace away.
She fell for his fake action of throwing the necklace into the lake hook, line, and sinker, though.
Her anxious look could not escape his eyes.
Standing behind her, he gently swept her hair aside to reveal the porcelain-like fair skin on her nape.
His eyes gave sparks as his back stiffened somewhat.
Her soft, fair, and flawless skin was like a masterpiece, especially right now when the dark water surface, which was reflecting the pale moonlight, was accentuating her jade-like skin.
She was a stunning beauty from inside and outside.
The classy black gown she was wearing contrasted with her snowy white skin perfectly; it exuded an innately forbidden allure.
His gaze turned deep upon beholding her alluring beauty, which led to something inside stirring.
She twisted her body to wrestle free from his grasp when he hissed, "Don't move!"
"Don't move or I'll do you right here and now!" His voice was tight with forbearance and repressed urge.
She immediately stood stock still.
She did not doubt this man's words. If she really moved, he would make his threat real right on this observation deck.
She already had a taste of his tyranny.
She was still sulking when she felt something cool lie on her neck. Looking down, her eyes caught sight of an exquisitely sparkling diamond hanging between her clavicles.
Is this the pendant he's thrown away earlier?
Didn't he just throw it away, or was he pulling her leg all along?
She was stunned momentarily, and at the same time, her lips could not hide a delighted smile.
Lowering his head close to her ear, he mouthed, "You must wear this pendant at all times."
Just as her gaze grew, he barked, "You're forbidden from taking it off!"
