One Birth Two Treasures: The Billionaire’s Sweet Love - Chapter 2576
This chap, is he used to getting hurt?!
Why is getting hurt such a common thing in his eyes?
The man noticed her unusual demeanor and turned his head to see her desperately trying to hold back her tears. He panicked and all he could do was walk up to her. Leaning forward slightly, he gazed at her face as he frantically tried to console her. “What’s wrong? Did I say something which made you angry? Please don’t cry…”
He scrambled to wipe her tears, but the protagonist simply slapped his hand away and glared at him through her tears. “Idiot!”
Hua Jin was confused. “Idiot?”
“You’re a big idiot!”
He displayed a rueful smile, which looked doting and helpless at the same time. “What’s wrong!”
“Is it worth it to get all bruised up?”
She shot the idol a glance, and his snow-white shirt with its messy stains, the bloody marks, black shoe prints, and torn shirt cuffs sprang into her eyes. She was sad beyond words!
He could not help being stunned by her words. After silently observing her for a long time, the corners of his lips arched slightly as he shot her a meaningful smile. He then retorted matter-of-factly, “How couldn’t it be worth it?”
She was taken aback.
“I said that I’ll always protect you.” His clumsy expression made her smile through her tears, but then the droplets rolled down her face more sharply than ever. “What kind of protection is that? If you get yourself hurt like this, I’ll be heartbroken!”
‘I’ll be heartbroken!’
Her confession made his heart skip a few beats. He looked dumbfounded for a long time, then appearing rather shy, with some coyness, he asked offhandedly, “Will you really be heartbroken?”
“Eh!” Yun Shishi nodded solemnly.
“Alright… I understand…” He tried coaxing and comforting her. “I won’t be so reckless in the future.”
“You’re just paying lip-service. I’m sure you’ll be just as impulsive next time.”
He pouted helplessly. “What can I do? I can’t control myself whenever I meet such a situation.”
She had to flick his forehead this time.
“Ouch!” He frowned painfully. “It hurts! Shishi, you’re so cruel! How could you do this to me when I’m already hurting.”
“D’you know how badly injured you’re this time?!” She told him off. “Let me send you home.”
“Do you have a medicine kit at home?”
Her heart was stabbed by his words again, and she told him, “Well, then; I’ll help you take care of your wounds.”
“Actually, I can… do it myself.”
“You’re not allowed to say ‘no’!”
Her fierce tone brooked no objection.
The man’s heart surged with warmth sans a warning and he abided by her wishes quietly. “Okay, then.”
As the actress had already called her husband earlier, informing him that she would be attending a crew event and might be home late, she did not call home again but drove straight to Hua Jin’s home. This was the first time she had seen the place that he was renting.
It was a simple one-bedroom apartment in a neighborhood not far from the city center. The bedroom was so small and cramped that she did not even know where to place her feet.
Seeing this, the man stammered with some embarrassment, “Well… with my current capability, I can probably only afford to rent a house like this.”
“How much is the rent monthly?”
“More than seven thousand.”
“Why is it so expensive?!”
“Well! It’s even more expensive downtown.”
“You should still have some savings left, shouldn’t you?”
He gave an awkward cough. “The usual shooting, grooming, and travel have taken up quite a fair bit of income.”
An artist had to be in constant chase of fashion.
