The noises stopped, and the room finally became quiet.
Before Ye Shengge could relax, she heard the man’s heavy and slow breathing, which made the atmosphere more intimate.
Her cheeks started to burn.
“I… I still have work to do.” She licked her lips nervously. “Why don’t you go back to your room for lunch?”
“Are we not watching the movie anymore?” Ji Shiting’s hoarse chuckle rang in her ear.
“Nope.” She pushed his arm and said, “I really need to work…”
The staff recruited by the studio, the development plan of the artists, and the newcomers who were about to sign the contract all needed her to go through them. Everyday, Shang Tianyi urged her to handle them as soon as possible.
Ji Shiting looked at her for a while, and traces of emotions could be seen in his dark eyes. After a while, he chuckled and let her go.
Ye Shengge felt relieved and left her arms. She walked to the bookcase and said, “I won’t keep you here…”
She heard the sound of a man pushing a chair away, followed by footsteps. Ye Shengge took out a book and wanted to watch him leave. However, the man suddenly smiled and stopped in front of her.
He moved closer, put one hand on the bookshelf and hugged her, his dark eyes staring into her soul.
Ye Shengge’s heart pounded madly, and she raised the book to block his gaze.
Ji Shiting chuckled, grabbed her wrist and pulled it down, revealing her face.
“Are you in that much of a hurry for work?” The man stroked her chin and said with a smile. “Aren’t you willing to accompany me?”
Ye Shengge’s ears burned even more.
“Work… Work is more important.” She forced a smile.
“But I’m very bored.” He chuckled and said gently. “Are you really so busy that you don’t even have time to watch a movie with me?”
Ye Shengge’s mind went blank.
Had she heard wrongly? Why was that man lowering himself?
She could still hear the hint of flirtatiousness in his voice. Besides, she was in the man’s embrace, and she could smell his breath. She was also forced to look him in the eyes, and there was nowhere to run.
She screamed in her heart.
She had been prepared for that man to toy with her from time to time, but he actually… acted flirtatious now? She wanted to get rid of that terrifying thought.
However, regardless whether it was her imagination or not, this sentence nearly crushed her defense and made her give up everything.
“Shang Tianyi has been chasing me for work for quite some time…” She was still struggling.
“I only have a few days of leave in a year. Can you bear to leave me alone?” The man chuckled as he saw her struggle.
“…” Ye Shengge’s breathing became rapid, and her heart softened.
She knew that the man was doing it on purpose, but she still couldn’t bring herself to say no.
She summoned her courage to look him in the eyes, and her heart skipped a beat.
“Ji Shiting, do you really like me?”
