Snow Eagle interrupted Si Luo before she could finish. “Are you scared of me?”
Snow Eagle spoke in a low tone as he took a step closer to her. He felt incredibly irritated right now, wanting nothing more than to grab the stupid woman standing in front of him and give her a good scolding or beating but he was too reluctant to do it.
When Si Luo saw Snow Eagle take a step toward her, she took another step back in fear. Both her hands lay limp by her sides as she ducked her head and casted her eyes to the floor beside her. “No!”
“No?” Snow Eagle parroted. At the same time, he set himself in front of Si Luo and held her chin to force her to look at him.
By now, Snow Eagle was already standing right before Si Luo. He could even feel the fresh minty scent she exuded.
Si Luo was truly at the brink of tears. She was genuinely scared of Snow Eagle, especially that long scar around his neck; what kind of injury had it been to cause such a deep scar?
“Look at me! Since you’re not scared of me, look at me and tell me that you’re not scared of
Snow Eagle forced Si Luo to look at him holding her chin. He was frustrated but he did not want to hurt her, so he yelled in feigned sternness.
“Hngh, wu… I…” Si Luo was frightened by Snow Eagle’s demeanor. Quivering, she shrunk even more into herself.
The more Snow Eagle watched her, the more furious he grew, especially when he smelled the soothing mint fragrance coming from Si Luo and saw her pretty eyes with long fluttery lashes.
He put out another hand, like he was raising it to slap her.
Si Luo suddenly recalled that she used to be beaten up when she begged on the streets previously and flinched. Closing her teary eyes, she cried, “Ah! Don’t hit me! Please don’t hit me! I’ll be good and listen, wuwu…”
Her reaction startled Snow Eagle. He then placed his hand on the back of Si Luo’s head and brought it toward his face.
The next second, he kissed Si Luo on her lips.
“Mmph—” Si Luo, who thought that Snow Eagle was going to hit her only for him to kiss her directly, widened her eyes that had been shut. She was stunned.
Snow Eagle did not kiss her for too long. Once he kissed her, he immediately realized his mistake and moved his lips away.
Thinking of what he had done, he punched the wall next to Si Luo, his fist that was swung down mercilessly caused the white paint on the wall to chip off.
Si Luo flinched again in fear and covered her face with her hands. She had only opened her eyes after not hearing anything for a whilebut was greeted with Snow Eagle staring at her with a dark look.
She shrunk into herself again a little shakily.
At the same time, she saw the scar around Snow Eagle’s neck from a close distance.
It was a huge scar made up of frightening, crisscrossing scars, and a look at it so closely was already enough to stir terror.
Si Luo flinched again but her hand subconsciously went up to stroke the menacing scar on Snow Eagle’s neck. She was scared witless and would love to hide herself right now but she could not help feeling sad for the man when she saw the scary scar on his neck.
“Does… it hurt?” Si Luo asked, looking sorrowful.
Si Luo was a naïve young lady. She did not even know what it meant for Snow Eagle to kiss her on the lips just now. At Si Luo’s question, Snow Eagle caught her wrist instead and smiled looking at her. “Are you worried about me?”
“No, I—if your family saw you getting hurt like this, they’ll surely be heartbroken,” Si Luo answered sadly with a frown at the scar on Snow Eagle’s neck.
He must have been in a lot of pain back then for the scar to be this deep…
“I don’t have any family.” With family mentioned, Snow Eagle’s expression morphed at once. He did nothing else except speaking but his expression grew a little more vicious.
If it were not for this deep scar, Snow Eagle was only the slightest bit less charming than Si Yi!
There was a pause before Snow Eagle gritted, “If it weren’t those so-called family, I wouldn’t have had to bear this scar since I was a child and be mocked for it!”
Snow Eagle sounded menacing but it made Si Luo emotional. Listening to what he said, her tears streamed down her cheeks.
Realizing that the girl was crying, Snow Eagle was stunned and seemed a little nonplussed. It took him a moment before he let go of her hand and wiped her tears rather frantically. “Why are you crying? Have I hurt you?”
