“Whichever gender it was, I have never developed an affection for them.”
He continued softly, “Until I met you.
To me, it would not make a difference if you were a guy or a girl.
I like you because it is you.”
When Wei Wucai finished saying this, he silently gave himself a mental thumbs up.
He actually managed to make his lie plausible.
Of course, these words were genuine.
But he had always liked girls.
It was impossible for Yan Zhiqing to be a guy.
Therefore, the only lie would be the phrase—it didnt matter if you were a guy or a girl.
He liked Yan Zhiqing, and it was impossible for Yan Zhiqing to be a guy.
Wasnt this the perfect scenario

And so, Wei Wucai didnt mind exaggerating.
However, at this point in time, Yan Zhiqing had become much more careful.
This sudden change had truly frightened her.
Yan Zhiqing looked into Wei Wucais eyes.
His deep affection could not be hidden.
He stared back deeply into her eyes, refusing to let her out of his sight.
“Let me go first,” Yan Zhiqing said.
“Do you still not believe me” Wei Wucai asked nervously.
“Zhiqing, I really do like you.
I am not lying to you.
It is not because I was physically attracted to you.
I really like you as a person.”
“Let me go first so that we can have a good talk.” Yan Zhiqing raised her brow and said, “Or are you not going to let me go if I refuse to agree to this”
“I was just worried that you might leave without listening to my explanation,” Wei Wucai said pitifully.
Nobody would be able to handle seeing a pitiful expression on such a pretty face.
Yan Zhiqing almost could not resist the urge to reach out and touch his head.
He looked like a dog that had been unfairly treated.
“I have listened to your explanation,” Yan Zhiqing said.
“Can you let go of me now”
Upon seeing Wei Wucais hesitation, Yan Zhiqing said coldly, “I am still sick!”
She still had a cold and her nose still felt stuffy.
As of now, she could only breathe through her mouth.
Yan Zhiqing raised her brows as she asked, “Do you intend to lock me up like this and force me to agree to this”
How could he ever force her
Upon hearing this, Wei Wucai felt his heart aching.
He thought that Yan Zhiqing had already gotten a good understanding of the type of person he was.
However, Yan Zhiqing now thought that he was a villain who would disregard her wishes and force her to do something.
Because of this, Wei Wucai felt even more horrible.
However, he was the one who had lied to her first.
Even if Yan Zhiqing had such a misunderstanding, Wei Wucai still wouldnt dare to be angry.
He could only defend himself carefully.
I wont force you,” he said.
“I like you, and I naturally hope that you will like me too.
If you dont like me, then I will court you until you like me.”
“What if I like someone else” Yan Zhiqing said.
Wei Wucai moved his mouth, appearing to be struggling.
Previously, he had never cared about the girls in the matchmaking meetings that his family had arranged for him.
With that toxic tongue of his, he would make them leave in anger.
The things he did could even be so upsetting that his past matchmaking dates would even show off their new relationships in front of Wei Wucai.
However, Wei Wucai didnt care about those people and naturally didnt feel a thing.
He was absolutely not affected by it at all.
Because he had never had an ex-girlfriend, he had never experienced the discomfort or even the pain of watching a past lover be with another man.
Upon hearing what Yan Zhiqing had said, Wei Wucai felt as though someone had stabbed him in the heart.
He had never felt this before.
He knew that this was just a hypothetical scenario.
However, at this moment, Yan Zhiqing was in his arms.
At least for now, it was impossible for her to find someone else.
However, even if he was holding her like this and even if he had wrapped his arms around her entire being—
The thought of her being with someone else and him having no choice but to watch her be intimate with another guy and laugh with another guy or be hugged by another guy—
Wei Wucai couldnt handle it.
He didnt even need her to actually do it in front of his eyes.
When he thought of that image, he felt as though his heart was in another persons tight grip, and he felt unbearable pain.
Wei Wucai stared at her and said, “Then I will wait for the time when you break up with him, or I will try to convince you that I am more suitable than he is and that you should break up with him.”
“…” Yan Zhiqing thought to herself that, no matter what, she could never escape the fate of breaking up with someone.
“Even if I break up with this one, I could date another person.
And I will marry someone else one day,” Yan Zhiqing said.
Wei Wucai was so worried.
Even though this was just a hypothetical, he still felt horrible.
He felt nervous and frustrated.
“Do you really have to come up with such what-ifs” Wei Wucai gnashed his teeth and said, “If you dare marry someone else…
“I will investigate whomever you marry.
There is no way that he has no skeletons in his closet, right”
The person that Yan Zhiqing married would never be an ordinary person with no known reputation.
Even if it ended up being just an ordinary person, he would still be able to dig up the skeletons of his past.
“I doubt you will be able to marry him when you find out about those dirty secrets from his past,” Wei Wucai said, gnashing his teeth.
Yan Zhiqing pouted and said, “What about you Do you have a dark past as well”
Wei Wucai choked for a moment.
If Yan Zhiqing asked him in the past, he would have answered no without any hesitation.
Of course, at the Mount Lan Compound, he was in charge of information collection.
The process of completing his tasks and the methods he used were not exactly good.
One could call that his dark past.
Those methods could not be publicly known.
However, Wei Wucai wasnt scared of those things at all.
Because besides the people at the Mount Lan Compound, no one else would have the skill to find information on him.
Even if Yan Zhiqing really hired someone to investigate him, he wouldnt be afraid.
No one would be able to find anything.
However, upon being asked this question by Yan Zhiqing, Wei Wucai didnt dare to answer without any hesitation.
Because he did have a dark secret that could be exposed at any moment and would not require any investigation.
He did lie to Yan Zhiqing that he was gay!
There was already a dark past right here.
Still, Wei Wucai absolutely didnt think that this was a lie.
It was at most misleading.
Of course, strictly speaking, Wei Wucai thought that this didnt even count as misleading.
At most, he had merely failed to deny it.
Although that was what Wei Wucai thought, he wouldnt dare to say that to Yan Zhiqing.
This was indeed a skeleton from his past!
Upon seeing Wei Wucai being stunned by this, Yan Zhiqing immediately glared at him and asked, “So you do have some dark secrets that cannot be publicly known”
“…” Wei Wucai said hastily, “You know, since I work for the Mount Lan Compound, I obviously have done things that cannot be publicly known.
Those things might not be considered upright, but I can assure you that they werent bad things.”
Of course, there was no objective way to distinguish between right and wrong just by judging from different viewpoints.
However, this reason could convince Yan Zhiqing.
