Chapter 92: Xiao Xiao, Do Not Try My Patience!
Long Sihao looked around the messy room as Li Xiaoman sat on the bed with her clothes barely covering her body and tears all over her face. His eyes darkened and revealed a trace of killing intent as he clenched his big white hands into tight fists.
Unanticipatedly, he shut the door behind him and walked toward her in big strides, then he picked up the duvet to cover her shivering body and pulled her into his strong arms.
He said powerfully with a low voice, “If you want, I can wipe out the Huo Family!”
Li Xiaoman was shocked by his words and looked at him with watery eyes. “What… What do you mean?”
Long Sihao lowered his gaze at her to hide the trace of killing intent in his eyes as he closed his thin lips while gently brushing her hair with his hand. “Xiao Xiao, just one word, and you will be free! You will leave the Huo Family forever!”
Li Xiaoman did not understand the meaning of his words, and she didn’t want to. She couldn’t allow herself to fall for him, even though he was always so charming and kind to her. She couldn’t accept his love.
She quickly pushed him away and stared at him coldly. “Long Sihao, why are you here? Please leave me alone! Haven’t you ruined my life enough?”
She knew that she was being unfair and cruel to him, especially her last words. However, if she didn’t say this, he would never leave.
“I ruined your life?” Her words had indeed hurt him. His eyes darkened, and his beautiful gaze became grave as the atmosphere turned chilly like an icy frost.
Long Sihao was still here because of Li Xiaoman. He was trying to protect her from Huo Yunxi and Li Xuehe.
Long Sihao didn’t want to show up and give Huo Yunxi and Li Xuehe a chance to scold Li Xiaoman; otherwise, he would have come to the room already.
He waited downstairs without knowing anything and was finally able to call her after he saw Li Xuehe, Xia Lin, and Huo Yunxi leave. However, he couldn’t reach her, and that was why he came to the room to find Li Xiaoman.
He lowered his gaze and saw the hickey on her beautiful neck; instantly, his eyes grew sharp and fierce. He clenched his fists so tightly as if he was going to smash something.
Li Xiaoman felt his gaze on her hickey, and her eyes revealed a trace of anger and resentment toward Huo Yunxi. However, she soon calmed herself down and resumed her normal demeanor. “President Long, please leave. I don’t want to be misunderstood by my mother-in-law…”
She paused for a second and then continued, “And my husband again. By the way, I don’t think I will continue working at TE Group.”
Long Sihao caught her chin and tilted her head up. His eyes narrowed thoughtfully as if he could see through her lies.
He gave an unreadable smile and said with a trace of chill in his voice, “Xiao Xiao, I’ve told you, without my permission, you can never leave TE Group. Please do not try my patience!”
“Haha… Permission?” Li Xiaoman raised her eyebrows and laughed scornfully. She pushed his hand from her chin and stared at him coldly. “Is this a trait of the men in the Huo Family? Do you all love to force people to bow down to you?”
