Chapter 44: Chapter 44 Because You Are Su Bei

They hadn’t known each other for long, but he seemed to trust her without any reservations.

On the other hand, people who had known her for years and years didn’t trust her at all.

“Besides, I’ll protect you.” Lu Heting helped her get onto the motorcycle and wrapped his arms around her waist.

Su Bei’s lips widened into a big smile.
“Okay then, hang on tight! I love going fast!”

Lu Heting tightened his grip on her.

The motorcycle flew forward like an arrow released from the bowstring.
Su Bei let out a happy cry that drifted away with the wind.
The headlight cut through the darkness in front of her and illuminated the road.

The motorcycle seemed to chase the light in front of it, always almost catching up to it, but not quite.

When they reached the top of the mountain, Su Bei finally slowed to a stop and took off her helmet.
In the dark night, her eyes were sparkling.

“I’m so happy!” she shouted into the empty landscape, cupping her hands around her mouth to amplify her voice.

Looking at how excited she was, Lu Heting’s eyes shined with affection.

“Do you know what was my rank today?” she turned to him and asked.

“I guess you got the first place.”

“How did you know that?”

“A woman like you will always be in the first place.” The emotions swimming in Lu Heting’s deep eyes were hidden in the shadows of the dark night.

“Thank you! Because of me, Su Huixian lost her qualification,” Su Bei said, laughing.
“Oh yeah, Su Huixian is my half-sister.
She’s the one who’s always trying to frame me and get me into trouble.
When I entered the room and saw that she was in the fifth place, I was even more motivated to impress the judges!”

Hearing Su Bei talk so casually about the way she had been wronged in the past, Lu Heting felt as if his heart was pricked by needles.

Misunderstanding his silence, Su Bei continued to smile and asked, “Do you think I’m a bad person?”

“Nah, she deserved it.
You are good.
You just did your job.” Even in the darkness, Lu Heting’s low and steady voice had the power to make anyone feel inexplicably relaxed.

Su Bei lowered her head slightly, and the night wind blew across her long hair, lifting it up to cover her small face.
In a trembling voice, she said, “Lu Heting, no matter what kind of conflict happened between me and Su Huixian before, other people always assumed that I was in the wrong.
You’re the only one who trusts me.”

“Of course I trust you,” he said, staring down at her disheveled hair.
“Because you are Su Bei.”

The night breeze was cold enough to send a light shiver through her body, but at this moment, Su Bei felt a rush of warmth start in her chest and move up all the way to her cheeks.

Lu Heting stroked her messy hair away from her face and lowered his head.
There was only a slight gap between his lips and her forehead when, all of a sudden, a bean-sized raindrop fell in the space between them.
Soon, it started raining all around them.

“It’s raining! Let’s go back now!” Su Bei shouted.

Since he had missed his chance to give her a peck on the forehead, Lu Heting was in a gloomy mood.

Seeing that the rain was getting heavier, he took out the raincoat stashed in the trunk of the motorcycle and put it on Su Bei.
Then, the two of them hurriedly got onto the motorcycle and left.

By the time they arrived at the building where Su Bei lived, Lu Heting was completely drenched from head to toe.

“Why don’t you come upstairs and dry off?” she asked shyly, getting off the motorcycle.

If it weren’t for her, Lu Heting wouldn’t be in such a state.

But as soon as she finished speaking, she was hit by a bolt of regret.
It didn’t seem right for a man and a woman to stay in the same room in the middle of the night.

Before she could say anything else, however, Lu Heting agreed.

Why did she feel like he had been waiting for her to say this?

But since she was the one who had extended the invitation, it would be rude of her to take it back.
So, instead of mulling on it any longer, she helped him find an empty spot to park the motorcycle.

Then, she led him upstairs to her house.

She opened the door, and Lu Heting followed her in.
