Stealing Your Heart Chapter 28

He Ruize’s hand paused. Money did not make him happy.

Lin Xinyan opened her mouth but closed it again. This “Lin” that his mother was talking about, was she his female friend?

It seemed like He Ruize did not like others to talk about it.

And so she did not ask.

He Ruize looked up and saw fingerprints on her face. He frowned and asked, “Who was it this time?”

Lin Xinyan did not know, but she guessed it was Bai Zhuwei.

She was a threat to Bai Zhuwei; she was afraid that she would be close to Zong Jinghao.

“I don’t have any evidence.” After all, a guess was not an answer.

He Ruize reached out and caress her face. Lin Xinyan instinctively back up, and he did not touch her. He felt a little disappointed, but he faked a look of anger. “Ruize can’t even touch your face?”

Lin Xinyan did not deliberately avoid him; it was just that she instinctively resisted any touch from the opposite sex.

He Ruize smoothed her hair. “Yanyan is feeling shy.” Then his face turned grim. “The wound on your knee—”

Although it did not reach bone, it was still quite serious.

“Bear with it for a little while.” He just cleaned the wound earlier. Now he was going to wrap it up, and the process of applying medication was going to be painful.

Lin Xinyan nodded. She had bear through the pain when He Ruize was cleaning her wound.

She knew that no one could take the pain for her.

No one would feel sad for her.

She could only stay strong.

“Mmm.” She pursed her lips.

He Ruize looked at her for a second before trying to make her laugh. “If you really can’t bear it, you can bite on my hand.”

Lin Xinyan smiled in cooperation, but her heart was heavy. Bai Zhuwei did not succeed this time; would the next time be even worse?

Suddenly, she realized she had nothing.

How would she be able to fight back?

He Ruize’s head was lowered as he dabbed the medication and did not notice her expression. He was afraid that she would focus on the pain, so he kept talking to her. “This medication won’t affect your baby, don’t worry.”

Lin Xinyan nodded.

He Ruize was thoughtful.

She placed her hand on her stomach. Perhaps this was the most joyful event she has had recently.

The baby was fine.

She did not feel pain nor discomfort in her stomach.

Her child was a brave and strong baby.

“Rest here tonight.” He Ruize finished wrapping her wound, looked up, then realized that her forehead was filled with perspiration. “If you need anything, just ask it. I’m your Ruize.”

Lin Xinyan nodded. Now she had to find out whether it was Bai Zhuwei or not.

She was working at the company. It was convenient for her to investigate as she was near Bai Zhuwei.

He Ruize stood up and went to get a pail of cold water. He wiped her sweat and iced her face.

“Who did you offend?” They were so rough with her.

Lin Xinyan thought for a moment, then she said, “I have no evidence, but I’m assuming it’s Bai Zhuwei, Zong Jinghao’s girlfriend. She hates me, and I’m assuming it’s because I’m married to Zong Jinghao.”

On hearing her relationship with Zong Jinghao as husband and wife, He Ruize felt his heart numbed, but at least it was only for a month. “I’ll take care of you from now on.”

After she is divorced from Zong Jinghao, he was going to confess.

And he would take care of her from there on.

No harm will come to her.

Lin Xinyan did not hear his full sentence, but she hummed in response.

Lin Xinyan did not go home this night. Combining the fact that this was a foreign place and that she had gotten a fright in the night, she had woken up early the next morning.

He Ruize was very considerate. He had bought her new clothes; the ones on her was no longer wearable.

“It’s a dress. It’s more suitable to wear this considering your wound.” He Ruize handed the clothes to her.

Wearing jeans would rub onto the wound.

The dress was long, and it could cover the knees.

Excluding her mom, He Ruize was the nicest to her. This kindness was a pressure to her. She did not know how to repay him.

“Could you be less nice to me?” Her voice was rough.

He Ruize deliberately gave an easy smile. “Silly, you’re calling me Ruize. Isn’t it normal for me to take care of you? No need to be so polite with me.”

He tapped her nose as he continued, “You’re a mother soon, don’t cry now.”

Lin Xinyan sniffed and smiled at him. She took the clothes into her room. She took off her bathrobe and changed into the clothes.

After breakfast, He Ruize sent her home.

“I need to go to Golden Harbor.” There was still time, and she needed to go to the Lins. She had the contract for Repulse Bay given to her by Zong Jinghao, and that meant that she now had a bargaining chip to make an exchange with Lin Guoan.

She needed to take back those things. Only when she has money then could she fight back with those who wanted to hurt her.

Although it was not a lot, at least it solved her most urgent problem.

And the money that she owed He Ruize.

Although he told her that there was no need to pay him back, she could not really do that.

He Ruize turned the car around and went towards Golden Harbor.

In a moment, the car stopped.

Lin Xinyan got down from the car. Although she could walk, every step was painful on her knees. She bore with it and walked into the house.

Inside, the maids were preparing breakfast. They did not seem to be awake yet.

“Do you need to wake—”

“No need.” Lin Xinyan interrupted.

She once lived here. The last time she was here, she had been in a rush, and she did not look at her old bedroom. Although her memories of this place were not great, it was still a place she once lived as a child.

She still felt nostalgic.

She went to the second floor. She was about to open the door to the bedroom she once stayed in when she realized that there were voices coming from within. She pushed open the door lightly and realized that it was already taken over by Lin Yuhan.

Lin Yuhan was lying on the bed, and Shen Xiuqing was sitting by the bedside, seemingly disappointed. “I can’t believe she ran away.”

“What?” Lin Yuhan sat up from the bed abruptly. “How did she get away?”

Shen Xiuqing’s face was grim. “I was too careless. I thought a man could take care of a girl. Who knew that man was so useless, he couldn’t even catch a girl!”

Lin Yuhan shouted in anger. “If she doesn’t get ruined, how would Zong Jinghao get sick of her, then divorce her? If there’s no divorce, where would my chance be at?”

Shen Xiuqing covered her daughter’s mouth. “Speak softer. Don’t let your father hear you.”

Lin Yuhan softened her voice. “I’m angry—”

“Am I not?” Shen Xiuqing face was contorted. “Now that Zong Jinghao likes her, she’ll come and seek revenge with the Zongs at her back. We’ll be doomed.”

“So we need to get rid of her now!” Lin Yuhan said viciously.

Shen Xiuqing was more cautious. “We didn’t succeed this time. I’m afraid she’ll be prepared for the next. It’ll be difficult to mess with her the next time—”

“You—” Lin Yuhan saw the person standing by the door and jumped from the bed. She pointed at Lin Xinyan who was standing by the door, and snapped, “Why— Why are you here?”

Lin Xinyan had been so sure it was Bai Zhuwei, she had not thought that it was Shen Xiuqing and Lin Yuhan.

Shen Xiuqing was also surprised to see her. “When did you come upstairs? What did you hear?”

Lin Xinyan sneered. She stole her mother’s husband, took her father, and used her mother’s dowries. All she wanted was to take back her mother’s and her things.

And yet, she wanted to hurt her!

Hah.

Was she afraid that she’ll have the Zongs to back her up?

“What did you hear?” Lin Xinyan stared at Shen Xiuqing, and sneered, “Everything I needed to know.”
