"The thing I hate the most all my life is for someone to get close to Xiao Ling with an agenda," he said very solemnly.
Xun An was almost rolling his eyes from the absurdity. He had only adopted her for days, and this had become something he "hated most all his life"? But at least he figured out why Pei Ziheng was upset at him, and hurriedly made up for it by smiling. "It's a misunderstanding, I just happen to click well with Xiao Ling, and at the same time…" He peeked at Pei Ziheng's expression and decided to change his statement. "Alright, I was trying to get close to you, and at the same time I happened to click with Xiao Ling."
"Is Xiao Ling a name you should call?"
"… Miss Xia, Miss Xia." Xun An couldn't believe how unlucky he was. He had calculated everything properly but just did not expect this man to be so protective. He didn't look like someone who was taking care of his adoptive sister, but rather a lover fending off other rivals!
