Chapter 227: Defend herself
Fang Chixia was standing against the guardrail of the balcony, looking at the garden downstairs. She didn’t look in the direction next door so she was unaware of the presence nearby.
Standing on the upper floor, the landscape of the Luo’s family garden was truly magnificent. At this time of the day, the early light was still very fuzzy. Mists and hints of fog wound around the entire garden. The morning dew hasn’t still dried up making people feel refreshed and relaxed.
Fang Chixia has spent a night without sleep and with the morning breeze blowing, it sobered her up a bit.
Luo Yibei was also standing in front of his balcony watching her movements soundlessly. His line of sight trailed along her long hair that had not dried yet to her reddish face caused by her bath, then to her loose bathrobe. His pupils hardened.
He only went abroad for a few days but on his return, he found her at the Luo’s Residence!
Fang Chixia was still drying her her, casually squeezing the water off her hair. She wanted to go back to her room but the moment she turned around, her eyes met his gaze.
The time hasn’t reached six in the morning yet.
Shocked at his sudden return, Fang Chixia was a bit terrified and her pupils slightly shrank. The hand holding the towel laxed and it fell to the floor.
Luo Yibei has been staring at her for quite a while and he himself was still in daze finding her in his family home. At the moment, his eyes were already piercing cold with not a hint of warmth in them.
Each met the other’s eyes and Fang Chixia’s head buzzed as it went blank for a moment. She moved her lips to say something, racking her brains on how to explain to him, “I, I…”
She has already stayed in so she thought, this matter won’t be explained too clearly.
On second thoughts, no matter whether she stayed or not, in Luo Yibei’s eyes, she was no different from those who had coveted the status of being Mrs. Luo all day. Explanations seemed unnecessary.
With that conclusion, Fang Chixia stopped opening her mouth and just kept silent.
Luo Yibei stared at her expecting her to at least defend herself. He didn’t expect her not to even say a word.
“Is there anything you want to say?” Looking coldly at her with not much expression, Luo Yibei’s eyes cooled down even more.
Fang Chixia looked down and calmed herself before raising her head once more. Luo Yibei who was looking forward to her argument heard her faintly say, “I know you don’t want to see me. I’ll leave immediately. I’ll not cause you any trouble!”
She turned around and went straight into the bedroom.
Luo Yibei was left speechless in place, his eyes, which seemed to be covered with a layer of cold frost, were overflowing with chill.
In the bedroom, Fang Chixia found her clothes she had when she came. She changed into them and didn’t even care about her still wet hair. She opened the door and went out to look at Xiao Zuo next door. Finding that the child wasn’t in any serious condition, she quietly tiptoed out.
Although there were many rooms in Luo Yibei’s villa, only and Xiao Zuo usually lived together. There usually aren’t people in the corridor and since it was still early, the hallway was empty.
The group of people with Sha Zhixing probably went back to their rooms to rest so this villa was totally quiet.
Fang Chixia walked alone across the hallway as if in a hurry to leave. Her footsteps were considerably fast.
When she came to the spiral staircase, she moved a foot ready to go downstairs when her wrist was suddenly pulled back by a cold hand.
Fang Chixia’s spine went stiff. She caught a glimpse of Luo Yibei, whom she didn’t when he has followed her, and her face paled.
