TOCH – Chapter 22

100 million, I’ll buy you.

“Why, what’s the matter?” Fang Chixia touched the tip of her nose looking bewildered.

Luo Yibei slowly swung around. He stared at her face and the look in his eyes deepened.

Fang Chixia is very beautiful, there is no doubt about that. Fresh, bright and smart. But, he didn’t expect that trouble would dog her everywhere she goes because of her appearance.

Luo Yibei fixed her with a stare not for long, his deep eyes clouding his thoughts.

“Follow me!” After a moment of silence, he dropped an order and made his way into a VIP room ahead.

Fang Chixia lazily followed in and went to his side.

There were several young people in the room. When they saw Luo Yibei coming in with her, they all took the initiative to withdraw.

Luo Yibei entered and sat down on the sofa. He took a piece of paper and a pen lying on the table next to him. She didn’t know what he had written, but he handed it to her after and said, “Sign it!”

“What?” Fang Chixia was nonplused. She looked down and at a glance, saw words of agreement on a hundred million.

“Agreement fee! 100 million. I will advance your expenses in all aspects for the next ten years but you have to resign from your work here. This is my condition.” He added languidly. He pulled a gold card out of his wallet and handed it to her while gently swirling a glass of red wine. “To put it nicely, it’s a bailout, to put it badly, it’s called…..”

His eyes turned to her face  and concluded clearly, “Pack. Keep!”

All the expressions on Fang Chixia’s face tautened. Earlier, she had given him high points for saving her, but now, “swish swish”, it has plummeted to the negative.

Fang Chixia felt humiliated. She itched to pick up the card in his hand and smash it on his face, but then, impulse was impulse.

Her fingertips mercilessly pinched the balls of her hands. “I’m sorry, I’m not for sale.”

“Miss Fang had better think it over before answering. Don’t be an 18-year old talking like you’re eight.” The corner of his lips quirked up sarcastically appearing to have heard a funny joke.

Fang Chixia now, in his opinion, was being childish!

Not to mention that he has opened his offer with a considerable amount, on the matter of Fang Rong alone, she couldn’t even handle it step by step.

It was obvious there was no other choice. What else can she do?

Fang Chixia actually understood in her heart, but she didn’t want to go along with his wishes.

She has no money and she was a poor student, but even the poor could be dignified!

Even if she has nowhere to go, she wouldn’t sell herself!

If her dignity was not her own, what was left of her?

“Why would you do this?” Baffled, she looked at him quietly.

Luo Yibei took a faint glance at the necklace she wore around her neck. A flash twinkled in his eyes, but, his words were fickle and unconvincing, “I said it before, what I’ve touched, I don’t like others to meddle with, I would be dirty!”

Fang Chixia didn’t know his identity, but she just thought his words were ridiculous to the extreme.

Her lips curved up with a touch of ridicule, she retorted unhurriedly, “Excuse me, so I’m dirty. What has it got to do with you?”

He was not her. Who asked him to dislike her?

Luo Yibei’s eyes dulled. He played with the glass in his hands and slowly lifted his face. The knife-like glint of his glance slid down on her face. It felt so sharp that the skin on her face felt burning hot. She shuddered back uneasily.
