"WHAT? You're not ill? But mom, when you said on the phone that..."
Yu Youan's eyes were full of disbelief. Facing her worried parents in the living room, her lips trembled slightly. "So, you used
your illness to trick me into coming back just to let me clean up my brother's mess?"
"What mess? That's THE Yan family! Besides, I just want you to marry to the Yans temporarily. When we find your brother and the fiancee of the Yan family he abducted, we'll ask them to change you back immediately." With a forced smile on her face, Mrs. Yu explained awkwardly.
"You don't want to do such a small favor for your brother?" Mr. Yu's face was gloomy. He looked at Yu Youan and scolded her angrily.
"A small favor? This is my marriage and you call this a SMALL favor?" cried Yu Youan, "I will never marry the Yan! Never!"
Yu Youan woke from the dream with a start. She didn't sleep very well. What happened two days ago was still haunting her like a nightmare.
She gazed about the room, not her old, cozy room of course, and took a deep breath. This was her new room, shared with the husband she had only seen once on the wedding ceremony.
She tried to slow down her heartbeats by smoothing the hem of her brand-new lace pajamas.
That didn't help.
That was not just a nightmare. In order to clean up her brother's mess, she really married into the Yan family.
"Do a small favor... ha-ha." She laughed drily.
"Are you awake?" A strange male voice suddenly sounded in the room.
The voice crept her out. When she saw the man in front of her clearly, she was scared out of her wits.
"You, why are you here?" Yu Youan held the quilt and shrank into the couch.
"Have you forgotten that this is our room? Why can’t I be here?"
The sole heir of the Yan family, Yan Haoqiong, was standing on the edge of the couch. His towering physique was unwavering, and he was still wearing the black Armani suit from their wedding yesterday.
She was filled with terror because she could feel his intimidating aura from afar.
Yesterday was Youan’s wedding and the man in front of her was her new husband, Haoqiong. However, she had never seen him ever since she was sent to their bridal chambers after the ceremony.
She waited for a whole night and finally fell asleep on the couch because she was too tired.
"I… I didn't mean that. Of course, you can be here. You didn't come back last night, so I thought..." Youan answered in an upset and dissatisfied tone.
Haoqiong snorted. "So, did you dress up so sexily for me? Do you feel it’s a pity that I didn't come back last night?"
"You know, I can satisfy you whenever you want." Haoqiong approached her step by step. Then, he placed his hands on both sides of the couch and covered her with his entire body as he got even closer to her.
"No… I don't..." Youan was terrified.
However, Haoqiong had already leaned over even before Youan could finish her words. He pinched her chin with one hand, and his eyes were full of coldness and hatred.
Youan was so scary; then she closed her eyes tightly while trembling in fear.
"Hehe…” The man sneered coldly.
"Yu Youan, do you really think that I’ll touch you? Have you forgotten how you married me? You and your whole family make me sick! Who do you think you are? My wife can only be Liu Shuxue!" Yan Haoqiong gripped her face even harder, which sent a sharp pain from her chin.
She felt as if her jaw was about to be crushed if he exerted a bit more force.
"I… I didn't forget..." Youan opened her eyes. She didn't know whether it was because of the grievances she felt or the pain from her chin, but tears rolled down her cheeks and dripped on the back of Haoqiong’s hand, which made him release her.
He only wanted to scare her, but he didn't expect her to cry.
"Did you call him?" Haoqiong straightened his body and took out a piece of tissue to wipe away the tear on the back of his hand. He became a little upset when he saw her red eyes.
"I called my brother, but his phone was turned off. My parents have been contacting him as well," Youan hurriedly explained.
"You’d better continue to call him. If you still can't find him, I’ll make sure to crush your entire family." Haoqiong turned around and went straight into the bathroom after he said that.
The whimper that Youan had been holding back finally broke out.
The reason why she was forced to marry the man who was feared by the entire Hai City was entirely because of her brother.
Three days ago, Yan Haoqiong took a group of his men to the Yu family and said that that her brother, Yu Mingcheng, had abducted his fiancée and no one knew about their whereabouts.
Yan Haoqiong gave the Yu family two choices. The first was to ask Mingcheng to hand over his fiancée while the other was to ask Youan to temporarily take the place as Haoqiong’s fiancée and marry him. They would need to continue looking for Mingcheng, or else he would completely destroy the Yu family.
Youan waited in fear for two days, but they still couldn’t find her brother and Haoqiong’s fiancée. In the end, she had no choice but to marry Haoqiong and sacrifice her happiness to be with this terrifying man.
When she heard that the water from the bathroom had stopped running, she quickly wiped away her tears.
A mist of water vapor escaped from the bathroom when the door was opened and Haoqiong walked out of the bathroom.
There was only a white bath towel around his waist. He was at least 6 feet tall, and he had the physique that could rival any male models. His muscles were lean, and his legs were extremely long. He was so attractive that Youan couldn’t bring herself to look away.
"Since you've woken up, hurry up and take a shower and change your clothes. Today, you’ll have to go to my family’s mansion to greet my elders. Since you've taken Shuxue's place, there’s a lot of things for you to do." After Haoqiong ordered her coldly, he strode straight into the changing room.
Youan sat on the bed in a daze for a while before she quickly got up and dragged her old beat-up suitcase from the corner of the room.
Then, she took out the clothes that she usually wore and walked into the bathroom.
When she came out, she saw that Haoqiong had already changed his clothes. He paired a white shirt and black pants to create a chic and casual look.
Haoqiong was still buttoning his shirt and he immediately frowned when he saw what Youan was wearing.
"Are you trying to look like a servant in my house? Don’t you even have a decent set of clothes?" Haoqiong started to insult her indiscriminately.
Youan looked down at what she was wearing. She had chosen a white T-shirt and a pair of simple dark blue jeans. This was her usual outfit, so why would she look like a servant?
"I usually wear this..."
"You were the adopted daughter of the Yu family before this, but you are now my wife. I will never let my wife wear a T-shirt and jeans to visit my elders, so you’d better go into the walk-in wardrobe to pick an outfit for yourself." Haoqiong frowned.
This woman had lived in the Yu family without a care before this, so she was about as useful to him as a mere servant in his house.
Youan looked in the direction of the wardrobe and she did not dare to go in. "But there is no..."
"Don't you understand what I just said? Or do you want me to personally change your clothes?" Haoqiong narrowed his eyes slightly and emitted a terrifying aura.
