Su Luo wanted to pull back her hand, but she was no match for Nangong Liuyun in strength. The harder she struggled, the tighter he grasped.
"What on earth do you want?" Su Luo gave up in the end in frustration. She had no choice but to yield in this contest of both emotional pressure and physical force.
"I'm collecting the bet you owe me. Girl, you won't play the fool and pretend that you forgot it, will you?"
"What? What bet?" Su Luo's brows furrowed in confusion.
"What a guileful girl. Don't you remember the bet we made this afternoon?" Nangong Liuyun said in a tender voice with a touch of indulgence.
Su Wan shot a disapproving look at him and spoke calmly, "Su Wan was discovered by people, but Su Xi came out just fine. So neither of us won or lost the contest this afternoon. Let's call it a tie."
However, Nangong Liuyun lifted his slender index finger and wagged slowly in front of Su Luo's face. He spoke with a wicked grin, "No, you defeated me indeed, but I won a victory over you as well. This should be the only right way to view it." His hand rubbed her head affectionately after speaking.
"You're so unreasonable. Who would see it this way?!" Su Luo was aggrieved.
"You didn't say at the beginning that this is not allowed." It turned out Prince Jin was truly the guileful one.
Su Luo was quite frustrated with him. That crafty fox. How many more people would fall into his traps if he lived in modern times?!
"Precious, come over." Prince Jin crooked his slim and bony finger.
She was not a dog! Su Luo remained still, arms crossed at ease and lips curled.
Seeing her reaction, Prince Jin curled his pretty eyebrows upward slightly. His dark eyes, fathomless and impenetrable, gazed at Su Luo in compassion.
Su Luo suddenly felt dizzy just when she was about to frown. To her surprise, she had already fallen into his arms when she opened her eyes again. She raised her face and happened to looked into his captivating eyes.
It was as if tens of thousands of years had passed in the fleeting moment when their gazes met.
Su Luo had a choking feeling in her throat and couldn't speak a word in a daze.
She came to her senses after a while and quietly warned herself to remain composed.
"You..." Before she could finish her sentence, Su Luo saw an unstoppable dark shadow coming down at her forcefully.
Lightheaded, Su Luo's brain went blank...
That face was in front of her again — the man who was too stunning to be real.
He was domineering and pushy.
Resisting, Su Luo attempted to break his fingers, yet didn't have enough strength. Her struggle seemed to have backfired.
Prince Jin's arms were tightening like an iron hoop. Su Luo almost screamed in pain.
A swift and fierce look flashed in her eyes when she came out of the trance.
Paah-- A harsh smack struck at Nangong Liuyun's face.
This man, what kind of woman did he think she was? How could he kiss her against her will?
A commotion appeared to arise at some unknown place in the dark. But the fuming atmosphere calmed down as soon as Prince Jin waved his hand casually.
