Emotions appeared in Xiao Mohan's calm and silent black gaze.
He didn't feel disgust or hatred. This feeling was strange, just like yesterday night. If this were any other woman, he would've twisted her neck already. But she seemed to be a rare exception.
Han Changqing secretly glanced beside him and saw Gu Chuyan's little face. He acted serious and turned his body slowly. He was afraid he wouldn't be able to control himself and burst out laughing.
"Cough." Han Changqing clenched his fist and placed it in front of his mouth. He coughed softly.
Xiao Mohan lifted his gaze and looked at him indifferently. From his reflection in the elevator mirror, Han Changqing saw his master's gaze. He immediately put on a stern expression.
"Ding." The door opened. Han Changqing walked out first. He went to the back of a luxury car and opened the car door.
Xiao Mohan lifted his long legs and entered the car while carrying Gu Chuyan.
"Get them." At this moment, the police had caught up with them by running down the stairs. A few police cars were blocking the road in front of them too.
Gu Chuyan's face turned black. She said in a soft voice, "Mister, thank you for helping me. I can't leave like this."
She didn't do anything. If she left, she would become an escapee. Also, she couldn't let Gu Miaoting become too arrogant; she had to expose Gu Miaoting's true nature.
Gu Chuyan raised her hand and went to open the door. Someone grabbed her wrist.
A warmth could be felt from the tips of the man's fingers. Her hand trembled slightly and she looked up at him. She noticed that he was staring at her silently as he tidied her messy hair.
"Are you afraid of death?"
"No," Gu Chuyan replied as she gritted her teeth.
A meaningful smile appeared on Xiao Mohan's thin lips. He lowered his head and whispered beside her ear, "Do you want to torture her to death?"
"Yes," she answered firmly.
His charismatic voice gave her a sense of security. Gu Chuyan looked at him curiously.
"Very good." Xiao Mohan's smile got brighter. He looked at Han Changqing and moved his thin lips, "Ah Qing, knock them away."
"Yes," Han Changqing answered. Then he stepped on the gas forcefully with his right foot.
The car shot out like a bullet and flew forward. The police cars frantically turned when they saw this. They watched the luxury car driving off quickly right in front of them.
"Chase after them! This is outrageous. Hurry and bring them back." At this moment, someone came forward and shouted while pointing in the direction of the car.
The moment he finished speaking, an expensive Mercedes Benz entered the scene hurriedly.
"Screech!" The car braked violently. The car door opened and a hand appeared. The person who spoke got pulled into the car and the owner of the hand tossed out his words arrogantly: "Your man has been kidnapped. If you don't want him to die, leave."
"Leave?!" They almost peed their pants out of fear. The man only had a knife but they didn't dare to make any unnecessary moves.
Gu Chuyan closed her eyes instinctively when she saw the car accelerating straight ahead. Were they crazy? Were they courting death? Yet, no collisions were heard…
"Screech!" Han Changqing stepped on the brakes and pushed the car door open. He jumped out of the car and nodded at Xiao Mohan. Then he walked towards the municipal Bureau of Civil Affairs.
Gu Chuyan turned and spoke to the man when she saw the car stopping. "Thank you. I'll be leaving now."
She felt she would implicate them if she continued to stay here. They had no relationship so their help seemed a little suspicious. She didn't understand the situation so she thought she should leave.
"Let me show you one thing," Xiao Mohan said. He lifted his hand lazily and passed her an extremely thin iPad. He signaled her to take a look at it.
Gu Chuyan accepted the iPad with confusion. She swiped on the screen.
There was a video on the iPad! She played the video and saw a figure staggering in the middle of the night. She leaned closer. The figure somehow seemed familiar.
Gu Chuyan stared at the screen. In the video, she saw a lady falling into the car and bumping into a man. She could feel the pain even through the screen!
"Isn't that… me?" Gu Chuyan saw the lady raising her head. That dress and that profile. Wasn't that her?
The video was short. It only lasted ten minutes.
In the ten minutes, the car was frighteningly quiet. You could hear a pin dropping.
She hugged the man's face and kept hugging it while muttering something. She seemed to be examining something. Gu Chuyan was stunned. She didn't dare to believe that this was her.
She had thought that was a dream. This video allowed her to remember everything.
"Are you the man from the video?" Gu Chuyan immediately threw the iPad away. She shrank into a corner in fright and looked at the man. Wasn't this the man in the video?
This was the man she bothered fearlessly when she was drunk…
Xiao Mohan bent down and picked up the iPad when he saw this. He placed it by the side and pushed his body up a little beside her.
"What do you think? Hmm?"
"I…" Gu Chuyan kept gulping.
The two of them were too close to each other! She could faintly smell some tobacco on him. It smelled really good.
"Mister, I don't have a job now! I don't have power or money," Gu Chuyan said.
"You're the first lady to touch my face," Xiao Mohan whispered into her ear with his deep voice.
The first lady to touch his face? Gu Chuyan's imagination ran wild.
She escaped from the wolf's den and was dropped into the tiger's cave! She gulped non-stop. She raised her head and plucked up the courage to ask, "What do you want to do? Tell me directly! Don't beat around the bush!"
"You have to take responsibility." He didn't give her any choices.
"Responsibility?" Gu Chuyan felt dizzy. She couldn't keep up with him!
"Yes, take responsibility," the man replied firmly.
Gu Chuyan had difficulty breathing. She was stunned as she looked at the man's handsome face.
"Can I reject you?" she asked.
"…" Gu Chuyan was elated when she heard this. She saw him swiping the iPad with his fingertips.
He straightened up and tapped something. He wanted to send the video out.
She pounced forward and snatched the iPad from him. She hugged it tightly and stared at him guardedly.
"Brother, let's keep talking about this." Gu Chuyan showed an ugly forced smile. She hoped that he would let go of her.
Xiao Mohan squinted. He raised her chin with his fingers and leaned forward.
"Don't you want to clear your name?"
"I do," she replied sincerely.
Xiao Mohan touched her chin with the tips of his fingers and pulled her into his arms. The two of them stared at each other. Their noses were touching each other.
"I will take the blame for you," he said.
Gu Chuyan shook her head immediately. "No, I can't let you."
He replied in a low voice, "I don't mind."
"Creak." The car door was pulled open. Han Changqing had a smile on his face. However, when he saw this scene, his hand trembled.
"Boom!" The car door was slammed shut. He turned around awkwardly and placed his hand in his pocket as he whistled and looked up at the blue sky.
Gu Chuyan woke up from her daze when she heard the sound. She sized up Xiao Mohan and stared at his handsome face with her oval eyes. She was in a dilemma.
He was so handsome but he couldn't find a girlfriend! That was so frightening. Could it be that there was something off about him?
"Are you really single?" She obviously didn't believe it.
At this moment, many images appeared in her mind. She started to get nervous.
