“Okay.” Li Jingran nodded, but his eyes were cold. “What did the Xu family do to you that night?”

When Xu Wanwan thought of that night, she felt a chill run down her spine. She clenched her fists and closed her eyes. “They let me stay in the basement. It was dark inside, and there were rats around me.”

“At night, someone came in and poured cold water on me…”

Xu Wanwan did not continue what she was about to say.

Because she saw that Li Jingran’s face was getting darker and darker…

Li Jingran pursed his thin lips tightly and listened with a frown the whole time.

The Xu family was really inhumane.

He sneered and said coldly, “It seems that I haven’t taught them enough.”

After he said that, he observed Xu Wanwan’s expression, and there was a hint of probing in his tone. “Do you have any objections to me teaching the Xu family a lesson?”

Xu Wanwan bit the corner of her lips as she felt a tinge of pain. She did not want to beg for their mercy.

After all, these things were obvious.

They had indeed let her stay in the basement and poured cold water on her.

She sometimes thought that the Xu family’s reputation in the industry was not bad. In order to maintain the title of philanthropist, they did a lot of charity work.

They could still show love to people they did not know, but they could not give her a little of their love.

Even a little was fine.

But they had never thought of it that way, and they had never treated her well.

So she did not need to care about them now. She had long had nothing to do with the Xu family.

“I have no objections.” Xu Wanwan looked back at the man, her eyes filled with determination. “The Xu family is not my home, and I have nothing to do with them.”

Li Jingran nodded in satisfaction.

Fortunately, this girl was smart enough to completely sever all ties with that family.

Since she had already made her stance clear, he did not have to worry too much.

Xu Wanwan looked into the man’s deep eyes and could not help but ask, “What do you plan to do?”

Li Jingran’s face was frighteningly cold. “I’ll settle the score with them.”


The night after she was discharged from the hospital, Xu Wanwan did not have much of an appetite. She only drank some porridge and went back to her room to sleep.

In the middle of the night, a strong wind blew outside the window. A burst of ear-piercing thunder can be heard in the house, followed by a torrential downpour…

Xu Wanwan woke up from her sleep with a start. She sat up straight, her back drenched in sweat.

The window was not closed. Silver snakes of lightning streaked across the sky, leaving a shadow in the room.

Xu Wanwan took a deep breath to calm herself down.

She got off the bed barefooted, closed the window, and quickly returned to the bed.

But after tossing and turning, she could no longer fall asleep. She could not help but tremble as she listened to the rumbling thunder outside the window.

This feeling was very similar to the night she stayed in the basement. There was only endless coldness and helplessness accompanying her.

She trembled as she covered herself with the blanket. She wanted to hold on for a while until the rain stopped before sleeping.

However, the thunder outside the window was getting louder and louder. She was extremely afraid.

This feeling of helplessness….she almost instinctively thought of Li Jingran.

She did not think about anything. She hugged her pillow, got out of bed, and quickly went upstairs. She stood in the man’s room and hesitated for a long time before she finally knocked on the door.

“Mr. Li, are you asleep?”

She could not hear anything through the door. She could only wait.

Just when she thought that Li Jingran would not open the door for her, the door opened.

The bright lights inside the room was shining. Although the man in front of her was dressed in loose-fitting home clothes, he still exuded a strong aura.

Li Jingran casually leaned against the door and looked down at the girl in pajamas.

Her hair was messy, and her small shoulders could not stop trembling. She hugged the big pillow with both hands, looking helpless and timid.

She looked like a frightened little rabbit.

His eyes darkened. “What’s Wrong?”

Xu Wanwan seemed to have grabbed onto a life-saving straw. Her eyes were filled with fear as she hurriedly explained, “I didn’t mean to look for you… There was thunder outside, I got really scared.”

She was about to cry as she spoke, but she was worried that Li Jingran would find her troublesome, so she could only hold back her tears.

Only then did Li Jingran heave a sigh of relief.

He thought it was something, but it turned out that she was afraid of thunder.

“Come in.” Li Jingran turned sideways and made way for her.

Xu Wanwan carefully walked in and looked around his room.

The decoration style was very simple and cold. The whole room was dark in color, and there was no furniture in the room, only a big bed.

Xu Wanwan suddenly thought of something and immediately turned around, but she almost bumped into the man.

Her face was completely red. She took a few steps back and lowered her head. “Then I’ll sleep on the floor here tonight.”

“No need. I’ll move the sofa next door in.”

“Okay, then I’ll sleep on the sofa.”

Li Jingran chuckled. “You’re so considerate for me?”

“I’m already very embarrassed to disturb you sleeping so late…” Xu Wanwan carefully explained, “How can I let you sleep on the sofa?”

Li Jingran guessed that she would say that, so he changed his way of asking, “Are you obedient?”

Xu Wanwan blinked and answered without thinking much, “I feel that I’ve always been very obedient.”

“Since you’re obedient, then go to bed obediently.”


She wanted to say something else, but Li Jingran’s lips curled into a smile. “Then do you want me to sleep with you?”

Xu Wanwan’s face was red beyond belief. She quickly turned around.

What? She was just embarrassed.

“I’ll move the sofa. You sleep first,” Li Jingran said and left the room.

Xu Wanwan took a deep breath and tried her best to mentally prepare herself. She walked step by step to Li Jingran’s bed and lay down.

She only slept in a small corner and covered herself tightly with the blanket.

The weather outside was still very bad, and the sound of thunder could be heard from time to time.

However, Xu Wanwan was not as scared as before. The soft blanket and pillow made her feel very comfortable, and the clear and pleasant smell in her breath also made her feel relaxed.

After a while, Li Jingran moved the sofa to the window. He lay on the sofa facing Xu Wanwan and turned off the lights.

The surroundings suddenly turned dark. Xu Wanwan became nervous again and grabbed the corner of the blanket tightly.

Li Jingran seemed to know what was going on. He said calmly, “I’m here. Don’t be afraid.”

Xu Wanwan said, “Yes, I’m fine. You should rest.”

Li Jingran didn’t reply. He closed his eyes to get ready to fall asleep.

But he found that he couldn’t fall asleep at all.

It was stormy outside, but the room was peaceful and quiet.

The girl was lying on his bed, breathing lightly. She didn’t do anything, but it tickled his heart.

Li Jingran couldn’t fall asleep. He got off the bed and turned on the lights.

As soon as the lights were turned on, the room instantly brightened.

In the end, he found that Xu Wanwan wasn’t asleep either. She was looking straight at him.

Their eyes met, and the atmosphere became a little awkward…

Xu Wanwan hurriedly withdrew her gaze and turned over, trying to pretend that nothing had happened as she continued to sleep.

But she felt that it wasn’t very good, so she said tentatively, “Well, if you can’t sleep on the sofa, why don’t you sleep on the bed?”

Li Jingran’s eyes fluttered, and the corners of his lips curled up. “What did you say?”
