Chapter 204: False face

“Ke, ke, ke!”  Mo Chuan suddenly covered his lips to give a few low coughs.

This girl’s words were really straightforward, but…..they were very reasonable!

“Alright, then I won’t contact Xiao Si and let him continue being a rock on the road then.”  He gently said.

Hearing this, Chen Ning suddenly felt sympathy for Xiao Si.

He actually has such a shameless master.  He really was truly unlucky.

“That’s right, if you need something or are dissatisfied with anything, just tell me and I’ll let the maids prepare it for you.”

“Un.”  Mo Chuan nodded in an uncaring manner as his dark as ink eyes continued to stare at her.

“You really are young miss Chen.”  He suddenly said in a certain tone.

Chen Ning revealed a smile.  An assassin’s heart is truly filled with doubt, never trusting anyone that easily.

“I never said that I wasn’t, so why didn’t you believe that I was Chen Ning until now?”

“Because, you are completely different from the rumoured young miss Chen.”  Mo Chuan slowly said.

“Oh, what is the rumoured young miss Chen like and what am I like?”  She looked at him with a look of great interest.

“……”  He tightly closed his mouth.

It was fine to say something behind someone’s back, but he couldn’t say something like this to her face.  This was one of the virtues of being a gentleman.

Moreover, rumours were nothing more than rumours.  He believed that the her he saw in front of him was the real her.

Seeing that he wasn’t answering, Chen Ning did not continue to pester him.  She giggled as she looked around the room.

“It’s already late, so you should rest early.”  She opened the door and turned to leave.

She suddenly turned around and looked at him with a smile.

“Xiao Hei, with that thing on your face, don’t you feel stuffy?  You should take it off and let your face breath, otherwise, you’ll start growing little spots.”

Mo Chuan’s pupils suddenly shrunk, “What did you say!”

He suddenly grabbed her wrist and dragged her back in.  With a peng sound, the door closed by itself.

“Ze, ze, ze, how rude!  What, are you going to kill me because I revealed your secret?”

Although Chen Ning’s wrist hurt a lot, she still revealed a smile on her face.  Her eyes fell onto his face and her clear as water eyes clearly examined it.

Being this close to him, she could see it more clearly and she knew that her judgement was not wrong.

There was a mask that stuck to this fellow’s face like a layer of onion skin.

It was no wonder he had no expressions at all.  It was no wonder that a master of reading micro expressions like her would not be able to see any response from him at all, it was because…..

He was wearing fake face!

“What secret!  What are you talking about?  I don’t understand at all.”  Mo Chuan immediately recognized his mistake and quickly regained his calm.  He let go of her wrist and crossed his arms as he coldly stared at her.

“Hee, hee, in front of a person with eyes, what use is there in being secretive?” Chen Ning slowly pointed out, “Your arms being crossed like this is a very guarded position.  If a normal person makes this posture, then that represents that their heart has been deeply affected or they are anxious to deny something.  Xiao Hei, isn’t this right?”

She rubbed her aching wrist as she winked at him.

Mo Chuan quickly put down his arms.

Chen Ning gave a laugh, “Wanting to hide something, that describes your current appearance perfectly.”

Mo Chuan’s eyebrows slowly raised as he angrily stared at her.

Right now, he felt like he was completely transparent in front of her.  No matter what he did or said, she would be able to guess what he was thinking.

Could her eyes see into a person’s heart?
