Zero’s mouth was stuffed with a youtiao as she looked at Chen Xing with her beautiful eyes.
Chen Xing had a mischievous smile on his face.
“You just agreed to it! From now on, you’re my girlfriend!”
“Mmm!! Mmm!” With her mouth full, Zero couldn’t speak and could only protest with muffled sounds.
“Take your time, swallow it first, don’t rush.” Chen Xing smiled and waited for her to chew slowly and then swallow.
“No! I won’t!”
“You already agreed, I don’t care.”
“I didn’t promise!”
“Then I won’t buy you breakfast tomorrow!”
“…Don’t buy it then!”
“Why? Don’t you like me?” Chen Xing continued to smile.
Zero started to say the word “I,” but couldn’t bring herself to say the rest.
“What about you?” Chen Xing smiled as he looked at her flushed face, tempted to reach out and pinch her.
“I… don’t…” Zero’s voice was very soft, and she still couldn’t say it.
Chen Xing continued with a smile, “You like me.”
“What don’t you like? Finish your sentence.”
“I just don’t!”
Chen Xing couldn’t help but laugh at her antics. Was this little girl really going to be stubborn? “Then give me back the photo album.”
Upon hearing this, Zero quickly hugged the photo album to her chest, wide-eyed.
“No! Why should I? This is my photo album!”
“There’s one that’s yours, and one that’s mine.”
“Both of them are mine!”
Chen Xing looked at Zero without saying anything, wearing a smirk on his face. His smile made Zero’s whole body shiver.
“Why… are you smiling like that?”
Chen Xing, still wearing that mischievous smile, slowly approached Zero.
“What are you doing… don’t come closer!” Zero was scared and leaned back.
There was no backrest behind her, and if she leaned back too much, she would fall!
Seeing the situation, Chen Xing held onto her back, gently pulling her towards him, and softly said, “Be careful, don’t fall.” His warm breath lightly touched Zero’s face.
Chen Xing, who knew nothing about emotions, met Zero, and it was like he had unlocked a new level. Suddenly, he transformed into a top-tier flirt!
Zero looked at Chen Xing’s face in front of her, unable to even breathe properly. She could only nod like a little bird.
Her heart was pounding incessantly and her face had turned red.
Chen Xing had one hand supporting her back and the other hand reaching for the two photo albums in her embrace.
He asked softly, “Whose photo albums are these?”
Blushing, Zero, with her final stubbornness, whispered, “Mine…”
Chen Xing squinted his eyes, barely suppressing his laughter. Teasing Zero was really amusing!
Every time Zero answered, Chen Xing would inch closer: “Then who do you belong to?”
“I… I belong to myself!”
Chen Xing moved even closer, and he could see that Zero’s neck was already blushing. Their faces were inches apart!
Chen Xing gazed at her flawless face, and even his own heart began to stir restlessly. Neither of them dared to take deep breaths, their faint breaths gently caressing each other’s faces.
“Thump, thump, thump…” Zero began to suspect that her heart couldn’t bear it anymore!
Chen Xing also caught another whiff of the fragrance emanating from her body. He couldn’t help but swallow his saliva.
“I really want to devour you… You smell so good.”
“No… Please don’t…” Zero’s voice trembled with embarrassment. How can he speak like that?!
Inner thoughts: Su Su, help me! This person is so scary!
She tried her best to move away from Chen Xing, and couldn’t help but push against his solid chest with her small hand.
But Chen Xing’s other hand kept pulling her back. She couldn’t escape at all.
Chen Xing himself didn’t expect to act this way, but if he had to blame someone, it would only be Zero for being too adorable. He got carried away.
So he decided to go all out. Today, he must make her agree!
“Whose photo albums are these?”
“I…” She had just said one word.
Suddenly, Chen Xing lifted his head and lightly kissed her forehead.
Zero widened her eyes in shock and instinctively asked, “You?”
The soft sensation on her forehead instantly blanked her mind. Her face turned so red that it felt like it was emitting smoke from the top of her head.
Chen Xing smiled and took one of the photo albums from her stunned embrace.
“Alright, you said it’s mine now.”
Zero immediately reacted and reached out to snatch it back. “No, give it back to me!”
“Then I’ll ask you another question.”
“If you answer correctly, I’ll give it back to you. If you answer incorrectly, you let me give you a kiss.”
“What’s the question? No, wait! You’re not allowed to kiss me!!!”
Chen Xing licked his lips and asked with a smile, “Whose are you?”
“I… I belong to myself!”
Chen Xing approached again, not allowing Zero to refuse, and kissed her forehead.
“I’ll ask again, whose are you?”
“You, you, you, you… you’re not allowed to kiss anymore!”
Chen Xing stifled his laughter, ignoring her protest, and asked, “Whose are you?”
Zero’s heart raced faster and faster, and even the hand holding the photo album trembled. She felt a wave of heat throughout her body.
She couldn’t take it anymore!
“You…” Her voice was extremely soft, still trembling.
If one didn’t listen carefully, they wouldn’t be able to hear it clearly. Chen Xing heard it clearly and couldn’t hold back any longer!
The corners of his mouth couldn’t help but curl up.
“I couldn’t hear it clearly.” So he kissed her again.
“Say it again, whose are you?”
After hearing that, Chen Xing’s laughter almost revealed his teeth.
Suddenly, the smile on his face vanished!
Zero started crying.
Tears streamed down her delicate cheeks. They converged at her chin, forming droplets that fell onto her legs.
Chen Xing panicked! Why was she crying?
“Zero?” He called her softly.
She didn’t respond, and tears kept flowing uncontrollably.
“I’m sorry! Don’t cry anymore! If you don’t want to, I won’t force you!” Chen Xing regretted it. He realized he might have been too hasty!
“Really, if you don’t want to, forget it! I won’t kiss you anymore! Never again!”
“I want to…” Zero bit her lip tightly, trying hard not to cry out loud, her voice filled with a heartbreaking sob.
But tears continued to fall.
“Ah?” Chen Xing was even more bewildered.
“I want to…” After saying that, the tears flowed even more intensely.
Chen Xing looked utterly surprised and didn’t know what to do.
He suddenly remembered that he had been single for 18 years and hadn’t even held a girl’s hand. He was completely devoid of the previous arrogance!
Forget about making any moves, as soon as Zero cried, he couldn’t even speak.
“System! What’s happening?! Help me, please!!!”
【 Ding~ Host, hug her! 】
【 Hurry up! Can’t you move any faster? Are you a pig? I’m getting anxious on your behalf! 】
Chen Xing couldn’t care less about the system’s scolding and quickly embraced Zero gently. She didn’t resist and sobbed in Chen Xing’s arms.
“System! Is there anything else?”
【No, that’s it. Just wait, goodbye.】
Chen Xing waited quietly, patting her back lightly. His mind raced, trying to figure out what had happened?
Zero buried her head in Chen Xing’s embrace. “Chen Xing… I promise you…”
“Mmm… Okay.” At this moment, Chen Xing had no idea what to say.
Due to her uncontrollable sobbing, Zero’s voice came out intermittently: “And… you… have to promise me… not to… abandon me… sob” After saying these words, Zero burst into loud crying.
Since becoming a Spirit User, all the heartache, pain, loneliness, and helplessness erupted in this moment.
She still remembered that day when she stood in the Court, watching her own Spirit Master pointing at her angrily, accusing her and the Association of being frauds! As a result, she became the laughingstock of all high-level Spirit Masters and Spirit Users.
She still remembered that day when she was expelled from the Weapon Spirit Association, standing at the entrance, lost and unsure where to go.
She still remembered the despair of being abandoned time and time again.
Under the bridge, by the roadside, on pedestrian bridges, in parks—through various places and methods—she was terminated, abandoned.
When she had lost all hope and thought of dying, Chen Xing appeared.
The more she cried, the louder it became, and Chen Xing’s clothes were soaked by her tears.
At this moment, Chen Xing also understood why she was crying. He held her tightly, feeling heartbroken.
In a gentle voice, he said: “Don’t cry, I’m here!”
“I swear, I will never abandon you. If I break this promise, let me be struck by lightning!”
“No, you can’t die! sob” Suddenly, Zero emerged from his embrace, tearful eyes fixed on Chen Xing. “You can’t die!”
Chen Xing gently wiped away the tears from her face and kissed her forehead tenderly. Just as he was about to pull away, Zero unexpectedly grabbed hold of his neck.
“Smack…” She kissed his cheek.
Chen Xing was momentarily stunned and looked at Zero.
“Hehe…” She laughed happily, her beautiful eyes twinkling. A smile appeared on her face, but a few more tears trickled down her cheeks.
Chen Xing’s heart trembled at her beauty. He embraced her once again, pulling her close.
This time, Zero’s little arms also wrapped around Chen Xing’s body. She happily nestled in his embrace.
Chen Xing silently savored the warmth of the hug. It was a feeling that neither of them had ever experienced in their lives.
It felt comforting, healing, warm, and blissful.
Suddenly, a thought crossed Chen Xing’s mind.
“System, can people in this world get married at the age of 18?”
【 Wow, you just met yesterday, getting married today, and having children tomorrow? The young girl just reached adulthood! Have some decency!】
“Can they or not?”
【 … 】
