Chapter 1787: They Came Here to Date in Reality, Right?
Even his voice was unprecedentedly close to her, even closer than last night.
Last night, she only felt that his low and hoarse voice tightly wrapped around the top of her head.
But now, his voice directly rested around her ears.
She wondered if it was her imagination, but Shi Xiaoya seemed to feel his lips gently brushing across her ear.
That gentle, soft, and warm feeling was very fleeting. She did not even catch it in time.
Hence, she did not know if it was just an illusion.
But even if that was an illusion, the heated atmosphere when he spoke beside her ear was certainly real.
Shi Xiaoya could not help twitching her ears. Not just her ears, her whole body was heating up uncontrollably.
“Young Master Ling… Young Master Ling?” Shi Xiaoya said again nervously.
“How did you call me when you first came in previously and screamed out in fear?” Han Zhuoling asked with a chuckle.
Shi Xiaoya: “…”
She was too nervous then, so how could she care so much? Of course she just shouted his full name.
How would she dare to now!
The directors and videographers who were in charge of following Han Zhuoling and Shi Xiaoya, respectively: “…”
You guys are using the filming as an excuse. In reality, you guys came here to date, right?
This was a little too much!
It was not convenient in the present moment to talk about these things with her, so he could only let go of her first.
“Let’s go,” Han Zhuoling said. When he let go of her, he held her hand again.
Shi Xiaoya struggled uncomfortably but did not manage to break free. She could only stare at him helplessly and say, “Young Master Ling…”
“What?” Han Zhuoling turned to look at her.
“We’re filming,” Shi Xiaoya reminded him.
“So if we’re not filming, I can do what I want?” Han Zhuoling gave a low chuckle as he caught on her words.
Shi Xiaoya: “…”
She was only reminding him that he was filming a show and there were cameras around, so he needed to be more mindful. She did not mean anything else!
Shi Xiaoya stared at the hand that was being held by him uncomfortably.
She could not break free from his grasp, so she could only let him hold it.
Shi Xiaoya could only comfort herself that, luckily, this was a pre-recording and not a live-stream, so they could just edit this out.
Anyway, Han Zhuoling was not scared, so she had nothing to be scared of either.
Shi Xiaoya immediately changed the topic out of discomfort. “Luckily, no one had passed the levels all this while.”
“I know,” Han Zhuoling said confidently.
“You know?” Shi Xiaoya asked in surprise.
“Speaking of it, it’s a coincidence too. The other four all chose the Gate to Heaven,” Han Zhuoling said. “When I went back, they were still there going through the levels repeatedly. The Gate to Heaven isn’t like the Gate to Earth, which can only be passed once. That path can be tried repeatedly after they failed on the first try.”
“Why?” Shi Xiaoya asked.
“Because the mission there is a physical one,” Han Zhuoling said.
Only then did Shi Xiaoya notice that his forehead was dotted with a few beads of sweat.
“Crossing wooden stakes, climbing, and jumping over obstacles. Not one stage can be failed. If you failed, you will need to start all over again. Although it looks very brainless, it’s a little more challenging than the Gate to Earth,” Han Zhuoling explained.
But Shi Xiaoya felt that this was only in Han Zhuoling’s perspective.
If he could use his brain and solve the question easily, he naturally would not want to go there and waste his energy.
But the Gate to Earth was really not a level that just anyone could solve.
And even for the physical exertion levels, Han Zhuoling had been the last to go, but he actually turned out to be the first to pass the levels.
He was really a master of pen and sword.
Although Shi Xiaoya did not say it, her sparkling eyes said everything.
Being stared at with such admiration, Han Zhuoling could not help but straighten his back up.
He led Shi Xiaoya to return to the exit.
