The Legitimate Daughter Doesn’t Care! - Chapter 277
Tong Yan frowned slightly, but he did not let go of Xu Xinduo’s feet. He persisted to ask her without the intention of giving up, “Can’t you just breach the contract?”
“It’s not just as simple as breaching the contract. If I breach the contract as soon as I join the entertainment industry, it would make me appear unreliable and would affect my career negatively in this industry.”
“You haven’t officially started working yet, so just paying liquidated damages will be enough. I promise you that it will not cause you any trouble.”
“Tong Yan, I can’t afford the liquidated damages. I don’t want to rely on you too much and I want to have my own source of income. Things are not good between me and my mother because she is completely attached to my father and lives without a speck of dignity. I feel very angry when I look at her and I don’t want to end up like her.”
Tong Yan pursed his lips. He wanted to respect Xu Xinduo’s decision but he also didn’t want to give her up.
He finally asked Xu Xinduo seriously, “Then, do you…like me?”
“I gave up.”
“What do you mean by ‘I gave up’?”
“Tong Yan, I’ve had a crush on you for so many years. I don’t know when it started but I was surprised when I first realized it, which progressed to me being conflicted all this time. I was afraid that if you knew about it, you would treat me like how you treat Liu Yating. Just the thought of the two of us not even being friends was too scary so…I gave up. But now, right after I signed the contract that prohibited me from being in relationships, you came to provoke me. Tong Yan, are you here to torture me?”
Tong Yan never knew of these things. He was so surprised that he looked at Xu Xinduo dumbly.
Xu Xinduo had a crush on him?
It was like a dream.
The person he liked happened to like him too.
The last time when he saw Xu Xinduo’s composition, Tong Yan had also thought about it. However, after her denial, he felt that it should be impossible.
If Xu Xinduo liked him, he should be able to detect it. How could he be so clueless?
Now that he thought about it carefully, he realized that Xu Xinduo hid her intent very well. When he hadn’t yet realized that she liked him, he treated her well and even called her….brother.
How did Xu Xinduo feel at that time?
Now that he thought about it, was he not kind of a scumbag?
Tong Yan was lost in his thoughts for a while before he broke out of his trance. Then, he quickly asked Xu Xinduo, “Do you still like me?”
There was a premonition. He felt that he would lose something very important if he didn’t say anything soon.
Xu Xinduo wanted to withdraw her feet, but they were held onto tightly by Tong Yan. In this posture, she couldn’t get him to release his hold. She could only answer, “I said I gave up.”
“I asked if you still like me.”
Xu Xinduo and Tong Yan looked at each other for a long time. Finally, Xu Xinduo opened her mouth and confessed, “I do.”
Tong Yan was ecstatic for a moment.
It was a kind of joy that seemed to have electrified him and opened up each pore on his body. The corners of his mouth could not help but curl upwards. Even the tips of his hair were trembling and expressing his joy.
He finally felt like he was cured as he whispered, “It’s enough for me to know that you still like me.”
“But I have a contract!” Xu Xinduo quickly reminded.
“Isn’t the contract only for one year? So there are only… eleven months left?”
“It’s not like I can’t wait; it’s just eleven months. What are you being so serious about? You liked me for a few years already, so why can’t I pursue you for a year?”
