Chapter 4: If You Don’t Fall in Love, You’ll Die
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
The store that Xue Xi had entered appeared normal from the outside but was over 100 square meters on the inside. It was like a supermarket with several rows of shelves that were filled with goods.
However, there was no customer in the store except for two men standing at the cashier, near the entrance.
One of the men had two small canine teeth and seemed like the store a.s.sistant. He was trying to play up to the other man as though he had angered the latter.
The infuriated man was wearing black pants with a black shirt, and he lowered his head while his fringe covered his sharp eyes partially. He had one hand in his pocket and the other sleeve rolled up, exposing his skinny arms. His well-defined fingers rested on the counter, and it was obvious that he was not to be trifled with.
At this moment, both of them were staring straight at her. The “canine teeth” man’s smile froze as though he had seen a monster.
Xue Xi was stunned for a moment and thought that it was very strange.
After a full ten seconds, the odd atmosphere in the store was interrupted by the boss’ weird tone. “Are you buying something?”
His voice turned out nice-sounding.
She paused for two seconds before nodding her head. “Do you have mineral water?”
“Yes.” The man ordered the “canine teeth” man, “Go get it.”
The “canine teeth” man finally returned to his senses. He snapped his fingers and scurried to the refrigerator in the corner.
Very soon, a bottle of mineral water was placed on the counter.
Lowering her head, Xue Xi opened her wallet and asked, “How much is it?”
All of a sudden, it became dark. It turned out that the man had pa.s.sed the bottle to her. His deep, charismatic voice rang. “Little kid, it’s free.”
She lifted her head in surprise.
The man was taller than she was by one head. Now that he was bending over, his arrogantly beautiful and exquisite face was only a few centimeters away from her. His deep, brown eyes were bottomless, and they made her feel apprehensive from the bottom of her heart.
This person was highly dangerous. She needed to stay far away from him.
She took a step back and, right at this moment, her mind suddenly became dazed as a warm current flowed through her heart. It was as though something had been awakened.
Her chest became painful suddenly, as if something was stabbing it and twisting!
Xue Xi bent down in pain, and a cold sweat broke out on her forehead. She could hear a faint mumbling sound by her ears, as if it was far away but near at the same time. “If you don’t fall in love, you’ll die… If you don’t fall in love, you’ll die…”
The pain was quickly intensifying, and very soon, she was in so much pain that she could not breathe.
Just as her heart felt like it was going to be crushed, she came to and realized that this was not a joke.
However, how could she fall in love in such a short period of time?
At this point, a huge hand lifted her arm. She lifted her head and saw the cold man observing her. “Are you alright?”
The world before her eyes grew dark, and right before she fainted from the pain, she grabbed the man’s hand and said,
“I have money and I can fight well.”
“Be my boyfriend and I’ll take care of you.”
The heart-wrenching pain eased slightly after she said those words.
It was indeed useful.
Xue Xi finally heaved a sigh of relief.
“Sss!” The “canine teeth” man drew a deep breath and widened his eyes in shock, the water in his hand. When he saw her looking at him, he hurriedly signaled and said, “Don’t worry about me, you guys can continue.”

There is actually someone in the world who is not fearful of death and actually confessed to our boss?
After she left, the searing sun shone on her once more as she slowly turned to look at the store.
Was everything earlier just a dream? What did that man do to me? What is going on?
The school’s dismissal bell rang and interrupted her train of thoughts. It was only then that she walked back to school while feeling lost.
Inside the store, Lu Chao walked to Xiang Huai’s side and said, “Boss, although you’re a man of striking appearance and is way too good-looking, she was clearly acting weird and harboring ill intentions. How could you agree to it? Could it be that you’re attracted by her appearance?”
The man shot him an icy stare, and Lu Chao immediately stood up straight and shut his mouth.
After having lunch in the school canteen, there was another round of examinations in the afternoon.
After the last paper, Xue Xi handed in her answers early and was staring blankly downstairs for more than an hour. They took the car back home only after Xue Yao was done with the papers.
The chauffeur, Uncle Li, had been working with Xue Sheng for many years; as such, he was fond of Xue Xi as well. When he saw her keeping quiet once she got in the car, he asked concernedly, “Eldest Young Mistress, how was school today?”
Xue Xi slowly turned her head to face outside and replied, “It’s fine.”
“Pfft!” Xue Yao, who was beside her, could not help but dip her head and laugh. She then indirectly hinted, “Cousin, the grades and rankings will be out tomorrow!”
After saying that, she sized up Xue Xi from the corner of her eye.
The girl looked out of the window, and her eyes had a layer of mist over them. She was especially quiet as though she did not hear the other girl’s words. This irritated Xue Yao.
When the car pa.s.sed by that same street, she suddenly realized that the store that she had visited in the afternoon had a sign that said “Ye Lai Xiang.”
A question arose in her mind. What does that store sell?
The car drove and pa.s.sed by the store quickly. Pondering over the question, Xue Xi did not see that Xiang Huai, who was sitting lazily at the counter, seemed to have sensed her as he looked out. His sharp eyes were glowing.
