Chapter 152: Announcement, She Is Your Sister-In-Law (Part One)
“Who has a special relationship with you?” Li Xiaoman looked up at him and squinted. Realizing that she somehow dragged him into the room, Li Xiaoman looked away uncomfortably. “You can go now. I’m not coming back tonight. I need to take care of Grandpa.”
“Coming back?” Long Sihao caught the keywords and narrowed his dark eyes. He gazed at her profoundly, and a trace of a smile touched his eyes. He quirked up his lips. “Well, Xiaoxiao, it seems that you already consider the apartment at Saffron Gardens our home.”
Seeing Long Sihao’s smile, Li Xiaoman felt even iller at ease and looked away. She was so mad at him that she didn’t want to see him anymore, but how come, just in an instant, her rage just disappeared into thin air?
She truly looked down upon herself. She wondered why she couldn’t be more determined around Long Sihao and how easily he affected her mood.
She narrowed her bright watery eyes and stared at him indifferently. “Long Sihao, I have promised Grandpa that I won’t divorce Huo Yunxi. So, please stop acting like this…”
Then she paused and frowned. “Grandpa devoted his entire life to the Huo Corporation. If you have the ability, I hope you can help the Huo Corporation get through this crisis.”
Hearing that she promised Huo Yehong that she wouldn’t divorce Huo Yunxi, Long Sihao’s face darkened. He stared at her fiercely, as if a storm was raising from the bottom of his eyes.
He clenched her chin with his white hand and forced her to look at his deep dark eyes. “Xiaoxiao, don’t push me to do something crazier! I want you and I will get you.”
His cold and determined words shocked Li Xiaoman. She looked up at him and frowned. “Why? You can have whichever woman you want, why choose me?”
He gazed profoundly at her and caressed her face with the hand that clenched her chin. He ran his chiselled long fingers into her hair and tightly grasped the back of her head. He covered her pink lips with his beautiful thin lips and said in a husky and charismatic voice, “Silly girl, are you still asking me why? Am I not expressing my feelings clearly enough?”
Li Xiaoman turned her head away to avoid his burning gaze. She narrowed her clear eyes and said impassively, “I don’t know what kind of feelings you have, and I don’t want to know. No matter you are sincere or phoney, I just want you to stay away from me…”
“Li Xiaoman!” Not letting her finish, Long Sihao growled and interrupted her. He pulled her close to his face with his hand on the back of her head. His nose rubbed her nose and his lips touched her lips. Their breath tangled tightly together.
He narrowed his dark eyes and gazed at her coldly. “Did you have to set clear boundaries between us over and over again? I told you that once I got involved in your life, I wouldn’t opt out.”
Then he let go of her and gazed soulfully at her. “Xiaoxiao, why can’t you be honest with yourself for once? Don’t you have any feelings for me?”
Li Xiaoman frowned, hearing his words. She was never honest with herself only because she was afraid to find out her true feelings. She got hurt before, and she didn’t want to suffer that pain all over again.
Then she turned around and opened the door. As she was about to leave, she stopped, and her clear eyes filled with complicated emotions. Out of nowhere, she suddenly wanted to ask him child-related questions.
She looked up at him soulfully and frowned. “Long Sihao, do you like kids?”
Her heartbeat started to accelerate as she asked that question. She was afraid to receive a negative answer.
Because of her question, Long Sihao narrowed his long dark eyes and gazed at her. “Why do you suddenly ask that?”
Li Xiaoman looked away from his deep eyes and took a deep breath. “If… I mean if someone is carrying your child, will you acknowledge that child?”
She clenched her slender hands so tight that her fingernails sunk into her palms, and her palms began to sweat.
Long Sihao stepped forward, lowering his eyes, and lifted her chin up with his big white hand. He gazed at her profoundly. “No one else will have my baby, unless…”
“Manman… Long Sihao, what are you doing here?” Huo Yunxi scolded with rage, interrupting Long Sihao.
He pulled Li Xiaoman to his side quickly and yelled as he glared at Long Sihao, “Long Sihao, don’t forget who you are. Manman is my wife, your sister-in-law. You don’t mind others gossiping about it, but I want to keep my dignity.”
