Gong Ouyang used the sports car like a sports car. They reached his yacht in few minutes and when Xiaonian got down the car, her legs were still shaky.

"What? Scared of this little speed?" Gong Ouyang asked in disdain when he saw her shaky legs.


"Haha, just a little" she brushed it off and followed him onto his yacht.

She saw the pictures of the yacht that Mu Qian Chu bought and named after Shi Yue yesterday. People were only eager to pass it around. She did not know much about these things, but she thought that it was a beautiful yacht. But Gong Ouyang's yacht, it was simply massive and very impressive.

They went inside and Xiaonian couldn't help but notice that all the yacht was decorated in Gong Ouyang's personal tastes. She lived with him for some time and she has seen his home and bedrooms, and she knew that he liked his luxury to be understated but elegant. And it reflected in the upkeep of this yacht.

Once they were seated comfortably in the gorgeous living room with windows that pen to the sea, the fact started moving and Yunshang island slowly got smaller and smaller as they moved further away from it.

"Master, Mr Ze is on the phone about N city's company acquisitions" Feng De passed a phone to Gong Ouyang.

While Gong Ouyang was on the call, Xiaonian helped herself to some refreshments supplied by the staff. The yacht moved at a steady pace and the breeze blew in bringing with it the smell of night. Xiaonian got up and walked out to the balcony that was separated from their room by a pair of french windows offering privacy.

Standing on the edge of the balcony, Xiaonian for the first time wondered about this day.

A long time ago, she thought she would be devastated if Mu Qian Chu got married to Shi Yue, and today, at that very thing she stayed calm and collected. She was surprised that she did not even feel sad. How strange.

The moon shone on the dark sea and wind chilled her body.

"I did not bring you here so you can leave me inside" Gong Ouyang's dissatisfied voice came from behind her.

It looked like he was done with the call.

Xiaonian turned a little to look at him standing at the doors with his hands tucked in his trouser pockets. The lighting was dim and it made him look like one of those male models posing for a men's magazine. Attractive.

"I thought I would come out and enjoy the sea, this is my first time on a sea like this" she told him honestly as he walked up to her and leaned with his back to the guardrail.

Gong Ouyang raised an eyebrow at that.

"I was on the Baja as a waitress" she reminded him, "we were given the basement rooms and had to work very long hours. By the time the work was done, I would fall asleep as soon as I hit my mattress. Didn't have any time for viewing" she smiled in nostalgia.

She had to work hard in those days, but every day was satisfying.

Gong Ouyang stared at her side profile in the dim lights of the yacht. The more he knew her, the more he felt that she was further away from the person in his investigation reports. Although there's virtually no chance that they found the wrong one, he felt uncomfortable at the thought that she might find any evidence to prove her innocence.

He clenched his hands around the guardrail and his eyes took on an evil tinge. He already decided that no matter what the outcome, she was not getting away from him. Conniving or not, he had a taken a liking to her and until he felt otherwise, she can only learn to live happily by his side.
