Chapter 128: How Embarrassing, Sitting On His Lap
His moves were so sensual that Li Xiaoman’s heart beated like a drum as she said hurriedly, “Long… Long Sihao, I’m not going back tonight, let’s find a hotel room!”
Her careless utterance made Long Sihao’s deep eyes light up and lock in on her. “Find a hotel? What do you want…”
He paused, then moved his perfectly shaped lips beside her ear and lowered his voice. “To do?”
Li Xiaoman’s body quivered. That special quiver made her heart skip a beat and her pretty face flush like cherry blossoms in March, blooming unapologetically.
She looked up at him and explained, “Long Sihao, you misunderstood me. What I meant was that I don’t want to go back, so please send me to a hotel, or…”
Li Xiaoman paused. She wanted to say or send her to her mother’s home, but ever since her marriage to Huo Yunxi a year ago, her mother somehow became reluctant to see her. Her mother never let her in whenever she tried to visit. She did not understand why her mother had become like this so abruptly.
Her mother never even bothered to pick up the phone whenever she tried to call her. Even if she picked up, her attitude was always cold and distant, which made her wonder if she was actually her biological daughter.
Even so, she still gave her monthly savings to her Uncle and asked him to give the money to her mother.
She never told any of her family members about all the times she felt aggrieved or wronged at the Huo household.
Long Sihao noticed she went silent all of a sudden and frowned as he fixed his gaze on her. “What’s wrong?”
“Nothing!” Li Xiaoman masked the emotions in her eyes and looked up at Long Sihao. She smiled and said, “Just send me to a hotel!”
Long Sihao narrowed his eyes and looked at her nonchalantly. He pressed his lips and lowered his voice to the point where there was no emotion in his tone. “Why should I listen to you?”
“Ah…” As if she did not expect him to ask such a question that sent Li Xiaoman to a stupor. The emotion on his handsome face was gloomy, his eyes were somber. She arched her eyebrows and thought, oh right, why would he listen to her? She was nobody to him, perhaps at most, his sister-in-law.
There were so many heavy feelings in her chest, and flames of unrecognizable wrath burning towards her head. Li Xiaoman squinted her eyes and peered at him, then grunted resentfully, “Of course you don’t have to listen to me, because I’m nothing to you. I won’t trouble you anymore so please just drop me off and I’ll go by myself. Master Long.”
Li Xiaoman deliberately drawled on the “Master Long.”
She was ready to open the car door and get out, but she couldn’t open it no matter how hard she tried. She turned to Long Sihao and narrowed her eyes. “Open the door, I’m getting off.”
To which Long Sihao did not react. She clenched her teeth, threw herself over, and landed in Long Sihao’s arms.
Long Sihao narrowed his dark, sensual eyes and looked at her deeply. He tugged her to his lap and pressed his lips together. “Offering free hugs won’t help, unless you agree to one of my conditions.”
Li Xiaoman realized Long Sihao made her sit in his lap and blushed. She twisted her body and tried to struggle out of his grasp, but Long Sihao’s arms of steel were caged around her slender waist.
