Stealing Your Heart Chapter 424
After meeting her gaze, Li Zhan scanned her from head to foot. At this moment, she stepped on the carpet barefoot while revealing her lower legs. Since she felt uncomfortable because of him, she unknowingly retreated and said ferociously, “What are you staring at?”
However, Li Zhan wasn’t angry at all and stopped staring at her. Instead, he began to ask teasingly, “You love someone, really? Who do you love? I’m well aware that you are choosy, so who are you fond of?”
He deliberately asked the questions to which he had the answers.
Pretending that she didn’t hear it, Chen Shihan turned around and walked to the bedside to put on her slippers.
Besides, she didn’t answer him because Chen Qing told her to keep it a secret for the time being.
The next moment, Li Zhan entered her room and closed the door. Although Chen Shihan glanced at him, she didn’t think it was inappropriate that only the two of them were in the room. After all, they were always together and even shared the same drink when they were teenagers.
She sat on the dressing table and began to comb her hair. When she looked at herself in the mirror, she began to ask him, “Are you looking for me? Do you have something to tell me?”
“Can I look for you only when I have something to tell you?” Meanwhile, he sat on the side of the dressing table and crossed his hands over his chest.
After pausing for a while, he continued to ask, “Who are you fond of?”
She glanced at him and asked, “Why do you want to know?”
Suddenly, she looked at him with caution and said when she frowned, “Did you find out something?”
Why does he keep asking the question if he isn’t aware of anything?
“What did I find out? Why are you asking me this question?” Li Zhan asked smilingly.
After a while, Chen Shihan scanned him from head to toe several times and said, “It’s because you seldom ask a question repeatedly.”
Much to her surprise, Li Zhan looked at her passionately and said, “You seem to understand me very well. Could it be that you are fond of me?”
As much as she was close to Li Zhan, he had never given her such a glance in the past. Hence, she was unknowingly stunned for a while. The next moment, she turned away and said in disdain, “Are you daydreaming? The sun is already up. Why do you think I am fond of you? Don’t be kidding. You are not my cup of tea.”
Li Zhan laughed and continued flirtatiously, “Since you have never tried it, how do you know that I’m not your cup of tea?”
Although Chen Shihan was a virgin, she couldn’t help but blush after hearing that. After all, she could hardly be more thick-skinned than him.
“I’m tired and want to go to bed now. Please get out now.” After asking him to leave, she lay on the bed and covered herself, including her head, with a duvet.
Unexpectedly, Li Zhan didn’t leave but came up to her bedside instead. He had a habit whenever he went for a shooting, which was to build up his emotions before acting.
He would only ask the director to start filming once he was fully immersed in the character.
It was perhaps his passion and seriousness in acting that he made it to a renowned and recognized actor successfully.
When his preparation was almost complete, he slowly sat on the side of the bed. After that, he said in a deep voice as if to hide his emotions, “Do you know why I haven’t had a girlfriend for a long time?”
In the meantime, Chen Shihan could hear his voice even though she hid under the duvet. However, she didn’t utter a word.
She didn’t throw back the duvet even though she felt hot beneath it.
On the other hand, Li Zhan was aware that she heard him even though she didn’t respond.
Perhaps because the house was too quiet and no one was around them, he could put his mind at ease to build up emotions. After a while, he said, “I have never looked for a girlfriend because I have always been fond of a lady.”
At this moment, Chen Shihan, who still hid under the duvet, held her breath. It was as if she wanted to know which lady he was referring to.
“She is a little younger than me, and we went to school together. We also witnessed our respective embarrassing moments…” Gradually, an air of melancholy was formed as he spoke. It was as if he tried to suppress his feelings that were buried deep in his heart. After pausing for a while, he continued, “I thought about confessing my love to her for all these years. Perhaps because we are close friends, I found it difficult to tell her.”
Chen Shihan felt increasingly hot and almost couldn’t breathe. Besides, her heart thumped as she listened to Li Zhan.
At the same time, Li Zhan glanced at the duvet that moved up and down and continued, “Well, she is actually rather beautiful…”
Once again, she held her breath to listen carefully to what he had to say. After all, she met all the criteria that he mentioned.
Has he always been fond of me?
“But she is a little bad-tempered and self-righteous. Perhaps because she comes from a prominent family, she is always arrogant and looks at almost everyone in disdain. These are her only…”
Suddenly, Chen Shihan threw back the duvet and sat up. She pointed at him and said furiously, “Who’s the self-righteous lady whom you referred to!”
However, his lips quirked slightly when he stared at her and said, “I said the lady whom I’m fond of is self-righteous, but I didn’t say you’re the one. Why do you think that I was referring to you? Why are you so emotional?”
At this moment, she was left speechless and blushed with embarrassment.
After falling silent for several seconds, she yelled at him, “Wen Xiaoji, get out now…”
The next moment, Li Zhan unexpectedly stopped her from speaking by kissing her lips.
In fact, Chen Shihan was rather arrogant and thought that the men she met were unworthy of her. As such, she had never dated nor kissed anyone until today.
Hence, this was her first kiss.
She was initially stunned but soon realized what Li Zhan was doing. When she wanted to push him away, he suddenly grabbed her arm and put another arm into her slightly messy and sweaty hair. Then, he held the back of her head and began to kiss her passionately.
