Stealing Your Heart Chapter 19

Lin Xinyan thought that he was being ridiculous.

Was he not with Bai Zhuwei too?

Regardless, her relationship with He Ruize was not the same as what he was thinking. Why did he think that he could interfere with her life?

“I’ve never interfered with your life, so please don’t interfere with mine—”

Before she could finish her sentence, her lips were blocked.

The words pooled at her tongue, but it could not leave her mouth.

“Mmm—”

Lin Xinyan finally realized what was happening and pushed him away.

His wits came back to him, and Zong Jinghao took a step back.

And stared at the woman in front of him in disbelief.

What did he just do?

Bai Zhuwei had always been initiative, but he had never felt the urge to be intimate with her.

Yet when he was looking at this woman’s pink lips opening and closing, his mind went blank, and he lost control and did an unexpected thing!

After that night, Lin Xinyan had never been so intimate with any men. She felt ashamed and in shock.

“How— How could you?” Lin Xinyan felt invaded.

She was not someone who gave herself up to anyone.

What rights did he have to do this?

Zong Jinghao faced her with his back, and said, “You’re my wife.”

So anything he did was not crossing the line!

Lin Xinyan widened her eyes. This was twisted logic!

“We’re not husband and wife. This is just a deal!” Lin Xinyan’s voice trembled.

She feared intimacy with men.

It was a nightmare for her that night.

She rejected all intimacy between men and women.

Lin Xinyan was so furious that she did not realized that Zong Jinghao was acting unusual. His calm composure was just a display for her.

If Lin Xinyan had been calm, she would have saw that Zong Jinghao’s ears had reddened.

“Even if it’s a deal, you have never said that during this time, we couldn’t do things that husband and wife do.” He slowly turned around and looked at Lin Xinyan, who looked like she was about to break down.

He frowned.

Was his kiss so poisonous that she had to break down?

Or was it because she was saving it for that man?

He slowly walked towards her. “A man who can’t protect the woman he loves, what kind of man is he? What do you see in him that’s worth saving it for him?”

Lin Xinyan did not know what he was talking about. What did he mean by this?

Was he talking about He Ruize?

Just as Lin Xinyan was about to ask more, Zong Jinghao had returned to his state of calmness. He walked and sat on the front of the desk. He was lazily leaning backwards, one of his hand casually placed on the desk. His face was emotionless, as if nothing had happened.

“I can give you the land at Repulse Bay but,” he paused, “not for free.”

Lin Xinyan clenched her hands tightly and trembled. A million thoughts flew past her mind, but she managed to suppress her feelings from Zong Jinghao’s frivolous behavior.

“What do you want?” She asked calmly.

Zong Jinghao dazedly said with half-lidded eyes, “I haven’t thought about it. I’ll ask for it when I know what I want.”

This was, perhaps, the most impulsive thing he had ever done in his life.

Unexpected!

Uncontrollable!

Lin Xinyan pursed her lips. It was not easy to get back her things from Lin Guoan, so it was ideal if she could get something that could put her on equal terms with Lin Guoan.

“I won’t ask you to murder or do immoral acts.” Zong Jinghao said temptingly, seemingly knowing what her worries were.

“Alright.” Lin Xinyan replied after a moment of hesitation.

She had nothing to lose, what would she be afraid of?

The faster she could take back her things, the earlier she could bring her mother to leave this place and settle into a quiet life.

“I’ll repeat this. You’re still my wife, you can’t have any other men!” His chest burned with an indescribable fire when he thought about her hugging He Ruize.

“About that—”

“You can leave now!” She had not finished her sentence before she was cut off by Zong Jinghao’s voice.

He did not want to hear Lin Xinyan talking about her stories with that man.

It only made him frustrated!

Lin Xinyan’s lips twitched, but she said nothing and left.

The moment the door closed, the calm composure of Zong Jinghao disappeared.

He rubbed his forehead. He had been too impulsive just now.

His lips unconsciously turned upwards into a faint smile when he thought about that brief kiss. It left a deep impression in him. His fingers brushed past his lips, and he thought he could still taste her on his lips.

He did not realize he was smiling.

It was absurd yet memorable.

Her lips were really soft.

It was like Bai Zhuwei’s.

Yet after that night, he could no longer find that fascinating scent on Bai Zhuwei.

Was it because of his body on that night?

This felt strange.

After leaving the study, Lin Xinyan did not stay at home. Her mother was still in the hospital and she had to take care of her. Just as she left the house, she met Bai Zhuwei, who had come to the villa.

Every time she saw her, Bai Zhuwei was dressed prettily, and she looked dignified with her delicate makeup and well-fitted clothes.

“You’re going out?” Bai Zhuwei asked with a smile.

“Yes.” Lin Xinyan answered softly. She did not want to have any further interaction with this woman. She looked naïve, but it was unlikely she was truly naïve.

“Ms. Lin, you’re carrying someone else’s baby yet you married Hao. I hope you’re clear that I am the one he loves, and he had only married you because of his mother’s arrangement.”

Bai Zhuwei’s words were straightforward. How could Lin Xinyan not understand it?

Zong Jinghao loved her, that Lin Xinyan knew. Did she have to repeat it in front of her again?

Was she feeling insecure?

“I know where I stand. Ms. Bai doesn’t need to remind me about it.” Lin Xinyan smiled.

Bai Zhuwei was rendered speechless and frowned. This girl was young, but she was matured.

At this moment, she realized that the study had opened. It was just a blurry figure, but Bai Zhuwei knew it was Zong Jinghao. The gears in her mind turned, and she pushed Lin Xinyan.

Lin Xinyan was pregnant, and as a mother, she was constantly aware of her baby’s safety. When Bai Zhuwei was about to touch her, she pushed her back almost instinctively.

“Ah!”

Bai Zhuwei was wearing high heels, and she could not balance herself after being pushed. She fell.

And this was seen by Zong Jinghao, who had just walked out of the study. He quickly walked over and caught Bai Zhuwei.

In Zong Jinghao’s arms, Bai Zhuwei’s heart thumped loudly. She took the opportunity to circle her arms around his neck and said with a scared tone, “Hao—”

She did not finish her sentence, she just showed him a look of fright.

Lin Xinyan broke out of her trance and looked into Zong Jinghao’s breathtaking eyes. Zong Jinghao stared at her and asked, “Why did you do that?”

Lin Xinyan was about to explain before Bai Zhuwei cut her off. Bai Zhuwei shook her and said, “It’s nothing. It’s not Ms. Lin’s fault.”

If Lin Xinyan had not understood what Bai Zhuwei’s intentions were earlier, she would be a fool not to understand it now.

She knew that her relationship with Zong Jinghao was just a deal. Why did she still have to frame her?

What was she afraid of?

Lin Xinyan ignored Zong Jinghao’s questioning look, and calmly said, “I didn’t do it, but it doesn’t matter whether you’ll believe me or not.”

She turned and walked out the moment she finished.

She would not admit to things she had not done.

Nor would she let anyone harm her child.

Even if the clock turned back, she would still do the same.

“Stay right there!”
