To be honest, Jing Tong had never been afraid, be it in the restaurant or in the same room. She didn’t think that man would do anything to her.
Even if she resisted and was angry, it was only against Jiang Yu and not because he was a man.
However, Jing Tong suddenly felt that something was wrong when she heard him say the words’ sleep early ‘.
She suddenly realized that no matter how cold and unreasonable he was, he was still a normal man.
Wait, that might not be the case. She had never seen him fall for any woman, and she had never heard of any woman beside him.
Perhaps he wasn’t a normal man at all.
Jing Tong couldn’t help calming herself down.
“Go to sleep first. I still need a few minutes.” She stood up and pretended to look for information on the bookshelf. “I’ll turn off the light later.”
Jiang Yu looked at her and suddenly asked, “Is it tough at work?”
“…It’s alright. It’s a bit easier than when I was studying in America,” Jing Tong said. “I can’t compare to you no matter how hard it is.”
The man paused and said, “Don’t force yourself. I won’t ignore you no matter what happens.”
Jing Tong smirked and said, “Don’t worry. I won’t give you any chance to make it up to me.”
Jiang Yu raised an eyebrow.
“I know you feel guilty and have been wanting to make it up to me.” Jing Tong looked at him. “But if I end up having to ask you for help, I might as well die.”
Jiang Yu frowned and said, “Is accepting my help that serious for you?”
“I can’t help Dad.” Her voice was hoarse. “I contributed to Night Banquet being sealed. He’s destined to stay in prison for the rest of his life. I know you didn’t do anything wrong. I shouldn’t hate you. Actually, I don’t have the strength to hate you, but at least I can keep a distance from you. Turning you down makes me feel that I’m not that unfilial.”
Jiang Yu pursed his lips and looked at her.
“But I know that you don’t care whether I hate you or not at all.” Jing Tong smiled self-deprecatingly. “Didn’t you feel guilty because I pursued you so passionately back then? Actually, there’s no need to. You didn’t do anything wrong. You just don’t like me. Don’t worry. I only have respect for you now, and I don’t have any thoughts. I promise I won’t cause you any trouble again.”
She sounded solemn towards the end.
However, Jiang Yu’s face turned colder. He stood up and walked to her.
Jing Tong instinctively felt a sense of danger and took a step back.
Jiang Yu took another step forward and forced her into a corner. Jing Tong leaned against the desk and was dazed seeing the man’s well-defined face.
The man’s hormones and breath seemed to be getting stronger, making it difficult for her to breathe.
“Nothing? Are you sure?” Jiang Yu leaned over and said expressionlessly. “If you don’t have any feelings for me, why would you allow me to enter?”
Jing Tong was dazed for a bit, then she blushed and said, “Didn’t you insist on staying at my house? You even said it was for an important matter… How dare you play the blame game?”
