Chapter 1428: She Felt Like She Was Dreaming

The women turned pale.
They didn’t expect Qiao Chen to slap their faces.
They’d thought that Qiao Chen wasn’t interested in Shen Xin, and that was why they’d said those words to please him.
But they didn’t expect that Shen Xin and Qiao Chen were really friends.
And Qiao Chen spoke up for her.
This meant that their relationship was good.
“Young Master Mo Chen, we…” The women were embarrassed.
Qiao Chen didn’t look at them again.
Under Shen Xin’s shocked gaze, he grabbed her hand and said, “Come with me, I have something to say to you.”
Shen Xin was stunned.
The moment Qiao Chen held her hand, he looked at her blankly.
At this moment, she felt like she was dreaming.
No, even in her dreams, Qiao Chen had never been so gentle. She never dreamed of him holding her hand.
Even in her dreams, he was cold and didn’t treat her well.
Hence, at this moment, she felt that this was all unreal.
Even though she could feel the warmth of the young man’s palm and the way he tightened his grip on her hand, she still felt unreal.
Didn’t Qiao Chen hate her?
Didn’t he tell her not to pester him anymore?
So, he probably hated her.
How could he defend her in front of others?
“Shen Xin.” Qiao Chen looked down and saw her staring at him blankly.
Her eyes were still red, and her eyelashes were wet with tears.
She must have felt aggrieved when she thought about how they mocked her.
She almost cried.
He’d known Shen Xin for so many years, so he knew her too well.
She was just a pampered young lady. She didn’t know what suffering was.
She’d had a smooth life since she was young.
This was definitely the first time she’d encountered such a setback and grievance.
Before the Shen family fell, no one dared to treat her like this.
Seeing Shen Xin like this, Qiao Chen’s heart ached.
He’d rather Shen Xin be a proud and rich young lady than see her like this.
The Shen Xin he knew shouldn’t be like this.
“Come with me, alright? I have something to say to you,” Qiao Chen said softly.
Shen Xin slowly came back to her senses. She looked down at her and Qiao Chen’s hands and moved her fingers.
The next moment, she felt Qiao Chen’s hold on her hand tighten.
It was as if he was afraid that she would pull her hand away.
This time, Qiao Chen held her hand and left the banquet hall without waiting for her reply.
After leaving the lively banquet hall, Qiao Chen brought Shen Xin to the back garden of the Mo Residence.
He only stopped when he reached a quiet place.
Shen Xin’s heart raced when she was alone with him. She was so nervous that her palms were sweating.
Qiao Chen slowly let go of her hand.
Under the moonlight, the young man’s exquisite and pale face seemed a little bewitching. He was so beautiful that it was suffocating.
His eyes were extremely dark, and his lips were as red as a rose in the middle of the night, but his face was much paler than the average person.
If there were really vampires in this world, they would probably look like him.
