Chapter 93: I Hope This Is The Last Time
Huo Yehong forced her to marry Huo Yunxi, and Huo Yunxi refused to divorce her. Now even Long Sihao was forcing her to stay in the TE Group.
Long Sihao’s eyes grew even darker, emitting a trace of violence after he heard what she said. He looked as if he was smiling, but the chill behind his grin was intimidating. “Xiao Xiao, I’m not a member of the Huo Family. Please do not make this mistake again!”
Even though he said this with an emotionless voice, his gaze was gentle, tender, with a tiny and unnoticeable agony.
Li Xiaoman lowered her gaze to cover the emotions in her eyes with her long and dazzling eyelashes. “Of course I will not make this mistake again. I will not see you again! Please leave the room!”
She didn’t know why Long Sihao insisted upon the difference between him and the Huo Family. Her instinct told her that there must be some secretive grudge between them, but she didn’t bother to ask. The truth was that she was sick and tired of this whole situation.
Her indifference hurt his feelings, and his eyes revealed a twinge of disappointment, but he soon put on his usual expression of a thoughtful gaze and an unemotional look.
He stared silently at her for a while, then he raised his hand and gently touched her swollen cheek that had been slapped by Li Xuehe. Li Xiaoman’s wound made his heart bleed. “Xiao Xiao, I can leave you if you want me to, but I will not let them treat you like this. As long as you’re in pain, I will be here to protect you. Anytime, anywhere!”
He finished talking and bent his head to kiss her forehead with his beautiful thin lips.
Li Xiaoman’s body quivered by his kiss and she looked at him astoundingly with a slight frenzy in her eyes, but she soon put up a straight look. However, her heartbeat was loud and sound.
Long Sihao pulled his hand back tenderly from her cheek and closed his thin lips slightly to speak in a low and clear voice, “I can approve your vacation, but I definitely won’t approve your resignation! Xiaoxiao, this is the only right I have to force you to do something for me, and I’m not going to let it go!”
He gave her a thoughtful look before he exited her room.
Li Xiaoman touched her forehead unintentionally and thought about the quivering sensation in her body when Long Sihao kissed her.
She frowned her beautiful brows, her clear eyes revealing her complicated mood. Somehow, she felt like she owed Long Sihao an apology.
She sat on the bed for a while and was about to head to the bathroom for a shower when the phone on the ground rang again.
She hesitated for a second, but then finally picked it up as she saw the caller ID of her uncle, Li Zhenhua.
She calmed herself down and then picked it up promptly.
“Hi, Uncle! How are you?”
“Manman, do you have the three hundred grand?” Li Zhenhua said hurriedly on the other end of the call.
“Three hundred grand?” Li Xiaoman frowned with difficulty as she almost forgot about this request from her uncle in these past few busy days. She was still short on a couple grand as she only managed to get two hundred thousand.
“Uncle, I have two hundred grand now, and I’ll get the rest of the money in 3 days. No problem! Okay, please take care of my mom, and I’ll see you soon! Thank you!”
She hung up and tightened her fingers around the phone.A frown creased her forehead deeply as she considered how to get the money.
