1677 I’m Here To Bring Xi Xi Home
Qiao Xi replied without raising her head, “Mr. Huo, you’re quite self-aware. You stole the book in my hand from Grandpa’s library. At the very least, Gu Zheng wouldn’t do such a thing.”
These words struck a nerve with Huo Yuzhou. A trace of heat surged out of his eyes, and his anger almost burned Qiao Xi to ashes.
He grabbed Qiao Xi’s wrist and pressed her onto the bed, locking her tightly.
Qiao Xi’s face was filled with shock. The man in front of her emitted a chill, and the emotions in his eyes surged. She knew that it was a sign of danger.
“Let go of me! Huo Yuzhou!” Qiao Xi turned her face away and ordered coldly.
Huo Yuzhou panted heavily as he looked at Qiao Xi’s snow-white skin that was exposed to the air because of her struggle. His gaze burned even more, and his voice became hoarse. “Since you said I’m a sinister person, I’ll let you see just that!”
With that, Huo Yuzhou bent down and kissed her cheek.
The man’s scorching breath sprayed on Qiao Xi’s neck, causing her entire body to tremble. At this moment, Qiao Xi could no longer calm down and struggled violently. “Huo Yuzhou! Are you crazy? If you dare to force me, I’ll kill you myself!”
Huo Yuzhou stopped in his tracks and stood up slightly. He stared at her with a burning gaze. After calming down for a moment, he let go of Qiao Xi and turned to leave the room.
Qiao Xi’s words heavily smashed into his heart, so he lost control. However, he knew very well that if he forced Qiao Xi, the consequences would be very serious. He did not want the only woman he loved in his life to hate him, so he fled and did not even dare to look at Qiao Xi again.
The cruise ship was docked at the shore. This city was not big, and there was no one at the pier. There was only their ship nearby.
After that, Huo Yuzhou never entered Qiao Xi’s room again. She could finally sleep peacefully.
At ten at night.
Huo Yuzhou became a little anxious. “Gu Zheng isn’t here yet?”
“Sir, should we send someone to take a look? There are very few boats around here. We’ll be able to spot them as long as they approach us.”
Huo Yuzhou shook his head. “There’s no need. Since Gu Zheng has already gone out to sea, he’ll definitely come.”
The assistant suddenly could not help but ask, “But if Mr. Gu is coming, doesn’t that mean Miss Qiao will leave?”
Sir was letting Miss Qiao leave just like that? How could he be willing?
At the mention of Qiao Xi, Huo Yuzhou’s expression was extremely complicated. He smiled bitterly. “She doesn’t love me. Forcefully keeping her by my side will only make her hate me more and more.”
Huo Yuzhou stood up abruptly. “How many people did he bring?”
“His boat is docked nearby. He got on our boat by himself.”
“By himself?” Huo Yuzhou could not help but be a little surprised. In the current situation, Gu Zheng should know very well how dangerous it was to appear here alone.
Was he too stupid, or was he too confident that he could escape unscathed?
“Let’s go! We’ll meet him!” Huo Yuzhou looked at the room not far away. “Let Qiao Xi go with me.”
Not long after, the assistant brought Qiao Xi out of the room. She was dressed neatly with a calm expression and slightly pursed lips. She had guessed that Gu Zheng was here. No matter what, she had to leave with Gu Zheng.
She had not left the cabin for the past few days. Now that she had just walked out, a bone-piercing cold wind assaulted her, making her tremble.
She looked up and saw a tall man standing on the deck. He was wearing a black windbreaker that almost blended into the night. When he heard footsteps, he slowly looked up.
It had only been a few days since they last met, but Qiao Xi felt as if a lifetime had passed. Gu Zheng was still elegant and noble. Even though he looked a little tired, it could not hide his kingly aura.
As if they shared telepathy, the instant Gu Zheng looked up, his gaze passed through the crowd and met Qiao Xi’s gaze.
At this moment, Huo Yuzhou had already walked in front of him. Gu Zheng said indifferently, “I’m here to bring Xi Xi home.”
The cold wind at the pier at night was biting cold, and the surrounding was filled with the salty smell of seawater. However, Gu Zheng’s words warmly struck Qiao Xi’s heart, causing her eyes to well up with tears.
Huo Yuzhou blocked his gaze and said coldly, “Gu Zheng, you should know why I’m looking for you.”
Gu Zheng said indifferently, “The Brook family.”
“That’s right.” A trace of viciousness flashed past Huo Yuzhou’s eyes. “I’ve been scheming in the Brook family for so many years. I don’t want your appearance to affect my status.”
“Mr. Huo, you’re overthinking things. I’m not interested in the Brook family.”
