A’Li’s words were clear and handsome, just like him.
Xiao Yan was no stranger to words, but she couldn’t write such good calligraphy with a brush.
She couldn’t help but glance at the word “Go away” written on the ball of paper again.
A’Li was sitting upright, there was no other movement. He became impetuous and clenched his fingers.
He finally turned to look at Xiao Yan and saw that she was actually carefully holding the paper he threw over and still looking at it.
Xiao Yan looked attentive, looking at the waste paper more seriously than looking at people’s bodies.
A’Li didn’t know what to think, his face became red and then blue from anger.
His thin lips were white, and his thin chest heaved several times.
A’Li lowered his eyes and wrote another piece of paper, and walked toward Xiao Yan while breathing heavily.
His well-proportioned fingers held the corner of the paper. Standing in front of Xiao Yan, he raised his thin eyelids and looked at her.
A’Li had a pair of long, narrow, and beautiful phoenix eyes, and now the ends of those eyes were raised, and the eyes were full of ridicule.
Xiao Yan’s gaze followed from A’Li’s face to his hands.
She looked at the paper A’Li was holding in his hand.
Reading the words, Xiao Yan took a sharp breath, coughed twice in shock, and couldn’t help but put her hand on her lips while lowering her eyes.
The words were —
Does this paper look better than my body?
Obviously, these words were normally used for flirting but after A’Li wrote it, and showed it to herself, Xiao Yan really didn’t dare to think about it.
She only felt that the words were layered with hidden knives. If she dared to nod or shake her head, the knives would definitely stab her to death.
So, Xiao Yan decisively changed the subject and put away the paper. She secretly stuffed it into her sleeve, and put the brocade box she brought on the table.
Before she could open the brocade box to introduce ginseng, A’Li handed over another piece of paper with a mocking look on his pale lips.
Compensation after being abused? It’s too precious, I can’t afford it.
A’Li had obviously heard what Xiao Yan told Mother Li in the courtyard.
Knowing that this was Xiao Yan’s compensation for making him ‘unhappy’.
Xiao Yan frowned and looked at A’Li.
A’Li straightened his back and pretended to be strong, to hold up a stance in front of her.
If his lips were not white and the ends of his eyes were not red, Xiao Yan might have believed it.
Xiao Yan didn’t speak and deliberately approached A’Li half a step.
Seeing it, A’Li subconsciously took a step back, his breathing became heavier, and his phoenix eyes were about to widen.
A’Li deliberately didn’t take what happened just a few hours ago seriously, for fear that Xiao Yan would threaten and humiliate him using it.
“You can’t act like this…” Xiao Yan looked at A’Li blush-red complexion, her big palm pressed against his tensed back waist and she suddenly pulled him into her arms.
A’Li fell half a step forward, and the two of them immediately pressed against each other.
A’Li’s breath stopped, and his face flushed red. Xiao Yan’s tone was flat as if she was stating the truth, “You shouldn’t back away but stick up close like this.”
A’Li finally couldn’t hold back anymore. He clenched his teeth and stared at Xiao Yan.
His body resisted Xiao Yan’s approach, he leaned back, trying to distance himself from her but his strength was no match for Xiao Yan.
Tears of humiliation slid down the end of his phoenix eyes, and his body uncontrollably trembled. The memories from a few hours ago swept through his mind like a tide.
He hated and feared her.
Xiao Yan sighed and raised her hand to carefully wipe away the tears from A’Li’s eyes.
A’Li resisted biting his lip and turned his head away, squinting at her as if he couldn’t wait to kill her.
“Have you taken the medicine??” Xiao Yan retracted her fingers, lowered her eyes, and directly looked at A’Li’s hand in front of her.
During the push and pull, the loose sleeves had slid down, revealing A’Li’s fair and thin forearms. The red mark from the hairband was seriously covered by several layers of gauze.
In addition to his wrists, there were countless bruises on A’Li’s body, all of which were hidden under this crescent-white robe…
