Chapter 1071: Let You Off This Once
Si Yiyan brought the few of them to the hospital for a check. Fortunately, they were all alright. After coming out of the hospital, everyone was already rather tired and bade goodbye to each other before leaving.
Wen Xinya watched as her friends left.
Si Yiyan had already driven the car over. Wen Xinya opened the car door and got into the passenger seat.
Si Yiyan leaned over and carefully secured her seatbelt for her. Before Wen Xinya could react, he pressed down on her and his soft, warm, and jade-like lips devoured hers.
“Hmm…” Such a kiss was soul-catching and Wen Xinya felt slightly overwhelmed. She instinctively pushed his chest and the inborn differences between man and woman became evident.
Si Yiyan pressed against her shoulder firmly, preventing her struggles.
This kiss lasted a long time.
Wen Xinya felt dizzy and hazy-eyed from the kiss—it was a sign of being oxygen-deficient. She couldn’t help but shake her head to avoid his kiss.
Si Yiyan also knew that she was uncomfortable and parted from her lips slightly. The mixing and separation of their salivas produced a silver string that hung between their lips, symbolizing their deep and unfulfilled passion.
Wen Xinya’s red lips were swollen from the kissing, looking all seductive and inexplicably tender, like a rose bathed in the morning dew, while hastened breaths escaped from her nose and mouth. “Si Yiyan, you’re nasty!”
Si Yiyan punished her with a bite on her lips. “What should you call me?”
Ever since they changed the way they addressed each other, she had already not called out his full name. Now that she did so, she definitely annoyed him.
Wen Xinya’s already numb lips were hurting and she couldn’t help but exclaim, “It hurts!”
Si Yiyan gently lifted her chin, made her small face look up, and looked into her eyes. “What should you call me? Hmm?”
Wen Xinya pouted her lips in slight displeasure and called out unwillingly, “Yan~”
Petty control freak, big bully.
Si Yiyan sneered. “Good girl!”
Wen Xinya couldn’t help but lament. “You’re only good at bullying me.”
His kiss just now was not comfortable at all. It made her lips hurt, her tongue numb, her mouth sore, her brain oxygen-deficient, her breathing difficult, and her chest stuffy. How annoying.
Si Yiyan naturally knew that the kiss just now was uncomfortable. “A disobedient child deserves to be punished.”
Even Zhou Tianyu and the rest escaped from the fire at the club earlier today. She could have easily run out even if she brought Du Ruo with her. However, she actually joined Du Ruo in her insanity, putting herself in danger for someone she didn’t know—she deserved to be punished.
He had always known that although Wen Xinya looked cold, her heart was softer than anyone else at times and tended to have inappropriate kindness. Du Ruo had wanted to save others because she was led by the doctor’s values—planted and nurtured in her since young—to help others in need. What reason did she have to join Du Ruo in her insanity?
If it were him, he would knock Du Ruo unconscious with a single blow, carry her, and run out at the first instance. The firefighters might be able to save that middle-aged woman.
Wen Xinya knew what he was referring to and said in disgruntlement, “Ruoruo is very innocent and kind-hearted. It was the first time she met with such a situation in her years of practicing medicine. Since she wanted to save someone, I couldn’t ignore her feelings and make her ignore an injured person. If I were to do that, it would cause a permanent scar in our relationship that can never be mended.”
At that time, although it was a dangerous situation, they still had the capacity to escape. To ignore a life like this was something that Ruoruo couldn’t do. She couldn’t force Ruoruo to give up her belief of helping others. If something untoward were to happen to that woman, Ruoruo would have regretted it for the rest of her life.
If that were to really happen, she would have disappointed Grandpa Du’s careful teachings and care for her.
Si Yiyan pouted slightly. “But…”
To Si Yiyan, the life and death of others had nothing to do with him at all.
Wen Xinya cut him off and murmured, “Yan, I know Ruoruo better than you do. Although she’s kind, she’s not a saint. She was guided by the belief to save others due to her inexperience. However, I knew that she knew what she was doing, that was why I risked my life with her.”
It had been proven that Ruoruo didn’t let her down, either.
And Si Yiyan appeared just at the right time. They managed to save that middle-aged woman to the end.
Si Yiyan had nothing left to say. “I’ll let you off just this once.”
It was also fortunate that although this fire wasn’t minor, it was thankfully not dangerous. When he found Xinya, she was indeed rather safe and still had the chance to escape.
Wen Xinya kissed his cheek and assured him. “I’m not that silly to put myself in danger. Even if it’s to save others, I’ll also do it within my means. If I didn’t have the confidence to escape with Ruoruo, I wouldn’t save that woman either.”
Everyone had their own interests in mind and she wasn’t an exception. She was not someone who would disregard her life to save others. She knew better than anyone else that her life couldn’t be taken for granted—heaven had taken pity on her, and she definitely wouldn’t court death.
Si Yiyan saw the determination in her eyes and knew that she knew her limits. He had no choice but to let it be as he said helplessly, “Don’t let me worry about you again.”
Although he wanted Xinya to be safe, he didn’t wish for her to disregard any lives. Everyone knew that he was the cold and unfeeling head of Lucifer who held great power in his hands and was formidable and relentless. However, he still wished to possess his own kindness, defending his land and the peace of its people. On the seven thousand kilometers borders between Country Z and Russia, within the areas of Lucifer’s power, he was the one and only Rex, the hope of all Chinese people.
Wen Xinya nodded and said, “I got it.”
She totally didn’t know what to say despite the myriad of feelings within her. Since the very first day she knew Si Yiyan, every time she needed him, he would appear before her and had saved her from danger countless times. The sentiments were immeasurable—she could only devote herself to him and vow never to leave him.
Si Yiyan said in a low voice, “Xinya, go there with me tonight!”
Having moved to the Mo Family for a short stay, Xinya had relatively more freedom. However, they also needed to note that after all, they still hadn’t gotten their marriage certificate. Old Mr. Mo would definitely not allow things like spending the night outside. This had affected their marriage life very much.
Wen Xinya nodded. “Okay, but you’ll have to get me back by 11 P.M.”
Her relationship with Si Yiyan had progressed naturally. Also, the fact that she had been reborn meant that she felt like a 28-year-old inside. Thus, when she was of age, she had given her body to Si Yiyan and felt that it was only natural. However, in the eyes of Old Mr. Mo and the rest, she was only 18-years-old. In their eyes, she was still a blooming bud. If they knew that she and Si Yiyan had already progressed to the last stage, they would definitely not be able to accept it.
Si Yiyan also knew her thoughts and wouldn’t make things difficult for her. “Okay!”
