Stealing Your Heart Chapter 48

He moved closer to her. “From now on, if you dare to suspect me indiscriminately again—” He stared at her lips with his deep gaze, and bit it.

There was a sudden pain, as the blood taste spread in her mouth.

“From now on, I’ll punish you in this way every time you wrongly accuse me. Is it fair?”

Lin Xinyan stared blankly at the man in front of her. She couldn’t understand all his strange behaviors.

“Do you know what you are doing?”

Zong Jinghao was rendered speechless. Everything that happened after meeting this woman caught him off guard, and made him lose control, becoming less like himself.

He knew it clearly deep down that this woman wasn’t good. She wasn’t pure and didn’t have self-respect.

Yet, such a broken woman aroused his interests, and made him feel like a real man.

He would have normal physiological reactions to her.

He hid his emotions deep inside, while he appeared calm.

He chuckled and asked, “What about you? You risked your life and lunged forward to block the knife for me. Are you—”

While speaking, he leaned in. When Lin Xinyan moved away, he continued to move closer to her. They were so physically close that the quiet, soft and delicate smile on his face couldn’t be ignored. “In love with me?”

That’s why you rushed forward recklessly when the danger comes?

In fact, he was shocked to see her rushing over the moment he turned around.

Looking away, Lin Xinyan refused to look at him. “You’re so good at making jokes, Mr. Zong. Will I fall in love with you after knowing you for only a few days?”

If it weren’t for the fact that she suspected that he was the father of her child, she would certainly not be so impulsive.

She cherished her life very much. She had to live well for the sake of her mother and her child.

Zong Jinghao didn’t get angry either, as he leaned back on the sofa, smirking. “What if you fall in love with me at first sight? We can never be certain about love.”

He seemed to be talking to Lin Xinyan, but also to himself.

Lin Xinyan abruptly clenched her hands that were placed on her legs, but calmly said, “I don’t believe in love at first sight.”

After that, she got up to pour herself a glass of water, trying to ignore this topic. They were initially two strangers, but fate brought them to live under the same roof and talk about the most inexplicable thing in the world—love. How ridiculous and funny?

While drinking water, Lin Xinyan looked at the piano that was placed by the floor-to-ceiling window through her glass, feeling sad.

The next day, Lin Xinyan went to visit Zhuang Zijin at the hospital. She was awake this time, and recognized Lin Xinyan at first glance, so she refused to let go of her hand after holding it.

“Yan, you finally came to see me. I’m very happy. I miss you so much.” Zhuang Zijin held her hands tightly, as if fearing that she would disappear once she let go.

Lin Xinyan was happy that Zhuang Zijin was so clear-headed. “I won’t leave. I’ll bring you out after you get better.”

After the agreement with Zong Jinghao ended, she would buy a small house and live with her mother.

“Why doesn’t Doctor He come to see me these days? Did you have a fight?” Zhuang Zijin roughly knew what He Ruize was thinking.

She liked him very much and recognized his characters as well.

Moreover, his profession was a doctor.

It would be good if Lin Xinyan could be with He Ruize.

It was just that Lin Xinyan was pregnant with a child whose father was unknown.

The thought of this child aggravated Zhuang Zijin.

“He has something to do, so he may not come back for a while.” Lin Xinyan looked down slightly. He Ruize promised to help her find out what happened that night, so he should be in Country A now.

“It would be so good if you aren’t pregnant and can be with him. I think he is a very good man…”

“Mom.” Lin Xinyan hurriedly interrupted her and put a bracelet on her hand. “Mom, do you still recognize this?”

Zhuang Zijin lowered her head. “Of course.” This was her dowry. She then felt weird and looked up at Lin Xinyan. “Why would you have it?”

“Lin Guoan gave it to me.” Lin Xinyan came today with a purpose. She was confused and didn’t know what to do. “Lin Guoan encounters difficulties. He came to me yesterday, and I don’t know what to do.”

Lin Xinyan hated him so much that she wished he was dead.

But in the end, no matter how bad he was, he was still her father, and his blood was flowing through her veins.

Zhuang Zijin looked down. “I don’t want you to take it seriously. Don’t dwell on the past, and don’t tie with people in the past. Don’t hurt people, and also don’t forgive.”

She understood what Zhuang Zijin was trying to say.

No matter how Lin Guoan was—good or bad—she didn’t want to have something to do with him.

“Okay.”

Later, the two spoke for a while, and when the visiting hour was up, Lin Xinyan walked out of the room.

After coming out of the room, Lin Xinyan went to the nurse’s desk to inquire about her mother’s condition.

“She’s so sober. Does it mean that she has recovered?”

No, she selectively forgets some things and also remembers the current things, but this condition won’t last long. It’s always temporary.”

Lin Xinyan was a little disappointed, as she thought that she had recovered. “Please take good care of her then.”

“We will. Doctor He has specially reminded us. Don’t worry.”

After saying her thanks, Lin Xinyan left the hospital.

Since Zhuang Zijin said so, she wouldn’t be bothered about it, and would forget the past grievances. Then, she took a taxi to the company.

Sitting in the car, she looked out the window at this familiar yet strange city.

When the car passed by Lin Group, there were many people at the entrance holding banners with huge characters on it—return my hard-earned money.

“Sir, stop here please.” Lin Xinyan wound down the car window to look at the situation outside.

The driver glanced at the rearview mirror and said, “Have you heard of it too? This profiteer cut corners, so the building collapsed even before it’s completed. Those owners who have paid for it are very unfortunate. Would people still dare to live in such a building? However, the company won’t refund the money. So there are people around here every day now, but it seems like it isn’t useful either. Did you buy a house with the company too, Madam?”

Lin Xinyan shook her head. “No.”

“That’s good. Many people can’t afford to buy a house for all their life, and some people can only buy one after emptying all their savings. They would be pissed when something like this happens. After all, it’s the bad developer that causes trouble to so many people.” The driver became angrier as he spoke, as if he was also a victim.

“Do you want to get off here?” asked the driver. It was a waste of his time to stop here. He still had to work.

“No. Let’s go.” Lin Xinyan withdrew her gaze, not wanting to see it.

These were none of her business.

Soon, the car stopped in front of the Wanyue Group building, so Lin Xinyan paid and got off the car. When she was about to walk forward, a man in a black suit ran over and said, “Are you Miss Lin?”

Turning her head, Lin Xinyan glanced at him up and down. It was a completely strange face. She searched for this man’s information in her mind, and was sure that she didn’t know him, nor seen him before.

After being victimized last time, she became very vigilant. She didn’t admit her identity, but asked, “Who are you? I don’t know you.”

The driver didn’t panic and was calm. “I’m the driver of Madam, who wants to see you.”

“Madam?” Lin Xinyan frowned, and saw a black luxury car parked on the side of the road.

It seemed that the person inside the car felt Lin Xinyan’s gaze, as the window of the car was slowly wound down.

The driver followed Lin Xinyan’s gaze and said, “That’s Madam over there.”
