I ADORE HIM
(Accidental Pregnancy (8)
Qin Zhi’ai only saw a white light flashing across her eyes, but then she immediately felt a strong wind bursting just from the top of her head.
With her heart in her mouth, she let out a blood-curdling scream. She closed her eyes, held her breath, and then waited for an excruciating pain.
When the machete was just inches from her head, the leg of the camera tripod intercepted the first contact. Then she heard a loud “bang” followed by piercing cries.
Qin Zhi’ai’s eyelashes fluttered before she fully opened her eyes. The first thing she saw was the man in the waiter’s uniform lying on his back, clenching his chest, and groaning, “Ow, oh, damn!”
She was so frightened that she broke out in a cold sweat. After gulping for air, she blinked and slowly looked up at Gu Yusheng.
She was still shocked, and her eyes were full of panic. Although Gu Yusheng was still boiling with rage, he softened when his eyes met hers and said, “It’s all right now. Don’t be afraid of them.”
These simple words made Qin Zhi’ai’s eyes fill with tears. She stretched out her hand to him.
When he touched her soft fingers, he trembled slightly and then instantly bent down and looked at her.
Before he reached out to touch her hair, his attention was drawn to her swollen face. He frowned and then turned his hand to touch her face.
Even though he touched her softly, her face was in such pain that her body trembled lightly. When he saw her reaction, his expression became enraged, as if he could lose control again. He asked icily, “Who hit you?”
She knew his rage wasn’t caused by her, but his voice frightened her.
She bit her lower lip without saying a word, but her eyelashes trembled quickly.
Seeing her reaction, Gu Yusheng realized he had been too harsh just now, and he quickly lowered his voice and said, “Don’t be afraid. I wasn’t scolding you.”
He touched her long hair slowly and fondly. “Tell me, who did this? I’ll need to protect you.”
She wouldn’t tell him, until eventually he coaxed her by asking, “Just point at him, okay?”
His tender behavior and soft words had gradually settled her fear.
She looked down at the men on the floor. After quickly looking at each one, she raised her hand and pointed to the man who had ripped off her gown. “He…”
Because she had been so terrifically helpless, and at this moment someone was there who could protect her, she no longer thought about whether Gu Yusheng was a man she should stay away from or one she could rely on.
She then proceeded to describe the attack. “He tried to take off my clothes. I struggled and kicked him…”
When Gu Yusheng looked at the man she pointed at, he wanted to immediately chop off his hands. Hearing her pitiable words, though, he suppressed his rage and impulse and continued to listen to her quietly.
