Chapter 25 A thrilling chase
“Mr. Wei Shi, are you willing to marry bride Ms. Nuannuan? To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do you part?” The priest asked solemnly.
“Yes, I do.” Ye Sichen held her hand in seriousness. His eyes were full of deep affections.
That was the most heart-beating affection in the world.
There was no doubt that Ye Sichen’s performance talent completely surpassed the current talented actors.
Xia Nuan couldn’t help thinking exaggeratedly in her mind.
In order to make the old lady happy, he would be affectionate even for a piece of wood.
At a time of fantasy, she heard the voice of Ye Sichen, “Regardless of wealth and poverty, in sickness and in health, I will cherish her and protect her.”
Xia Nuan was hold by Ye Sichen in confusion.
All the friends and relatives off the stage burst into stormy applause.
Later, Ye Sichen wrapped his arms around her.
Passively, Xia Nuan had to circle his waist.
“Kiss her! Kiss her!”
Some of the guests heckled him.
The old lady wiped away her tears and looked at her “son” and “daughter-in-law”. It seemed that she had no regrets.
“Wei Shi, I can leave without regrets to witness that you have finally settled.” The old lady said that in all earnestness.
“Wei Shi, the old lady wishes you a forever love. Don’t let her down.” Another guest said.
Ye Sichen tightened his arm around her waist in a gentle smile.
Xia Nuan placed her delicate fingers on his chest, with her heart pounding hard.
Ye Sichen seemed to feel her nervousness. Then he whispered to her, “Kissing is a must for wedding.”
“But sir, our marriage is fake.”
“I know that. Think about it. She is running out of time. We need to pretend it was real for her happiness.”
Ye Sichen took it for granted every time.
Xia Nuan slowly closed her eyes, “All right…”
Then he lowered his head and looked at her sexy red lips. He got close to her little by little and finally gave her a kiss softly.
Xia Nuan felt dizzy and almost indulged in his soft kiss with a mint smell.
She took a deep breath and tried her best not to immerse in it.
Suddenly, some of the audience off the stage looked at Ye Sichen and whispered. Then they started a commotion.
“He looks like Ye Sichen!”
“Impossible! That can’t be true! Ye Sichen has no beard and he’s younger than this man!”
“No. I’m sure. He must be Ye Sichen!”
For a time, there were a lot of irrelevant people excitedly rushing into the marriage church.
“It’s Ye Sichen, really! His disguise can’t fool my eyes!”
A girl who was followed by a group of people ran over excitedly. The guests were then squeezed out by the crowd consisting of fans and tabloid reporters. And Xiu Lin was pushed to a corner together with the old lady.
Ye Sichen protected Xia Nuan from injuries as he looked towards Xiu Lin. Then he took out the intercom from his back and ordered Bill and Coade, “Send two bodyguards to protect the old lady.”
“As you demand, sir.”
Bill immediately hung up as he received the order.
The intercom was an indispensable tool for communication between Ye Sichen and his subordinates. Once he went out alone being sieged, the bodyguards would come over immediately.
Ye Sichen hung up the intercom. Then he held Xia Nuan’s hand and left in a hurry.
He took great strides, looking for a place to hide themselves.
Xia Nuan almost sprained her ankle, so she tried to loosen from him, “Sir, you leave first. I’ll deal with them.”
“Listen! I will not leave you alone.”
Those reporters would definitely ask Xia Nuan about their relationship once she besieged. They would also take this opportunity to make another scandal against him.
Therefore, he would never allow such things to happen.
Without a word, Xia Nuan tried to avoid the chase of those people together with him.
She saw on the television that countless people followed Ye Sichen wherever he was. In severe cases, they could even cause a traffic gridlock. However, when she was involved, she felt it was like a frightened adventure.
Ye Sichen held Xia Nuan’s hand and came to a window of a Gothic building. He opened the window and then jumped onto it.
“Give me your hand.”
Ye Sichen stood on the window and reached out his hands towards Xia Nuan. She heard those people clattering up the stairs. The screaming sound was almost deafening.
Without too much time to think deeply, she seized his hand and was pulled into his arms with a force.
There was a blue pool downstairs. Given that they were on the third floor, Xia Nuan was too fearful to jump into it.
But if not, the following paparazzi would catch up with them. Then they would definitely make scandals on him once they saw them clinging together.
“It doesn’t matter, sir. Let’s do this.” Xia Nuan suddenly clasped him around his neck voluntarily.
“Hold me tight and close your eyes.” Ye Sichen felt her fear of heights, then reminded her softly.
“Hum.” Xia Nuan held him a little bit tighter. She seemed to feel at ease.
Ye Sichen jumped into the water with his arms around Xia Nuan.
“Plop!” Both of them fell into the water.
“There! Let’s go and have a look!”
Then they ran towards the window in a mess. Some of them carried with cameras, while some of the rest were ready to press the shutter of the cameras.
However, they only saw a woman downstairs in the pool, with no trace of Ye Sichen.
The woman scattered over her long hair and played leisurely in the water. Her snow-white shoulder was exposed. She wore a white brassiere dress and the dress hemlines were swaying in the pool, like a blooming hibiscus flower.
She was not someone else, but Xia Nuan.
Finding the cameras with flashes of lights on her face, she couldn’t help but look up and then covered her shoulder hurriedly, “Who are you? Why are you peeking at me taking a shower?”
“Excuse me, Ms. Where is Ye Sichen?”
“What’s the relationship between you and Ye Sichen?”
“Why did he pretend to be a bearded man and married you in the church?”
The paparazzi bombarded her with questions. She looked at them at a blank look, then said angrily, “Who is Ye Sichen! You are talking nonsense! I will sue you for sneaking shots on me, you unethical reporters!”
At this time, several police officers rushed here.
Xia Nuan pointed at the paparazzi and said to the police with indignation, “Sir, they sneaked shots on me and slandered that I had a relationship with a man called ‘Ye Sichen’! I was taking a bath, just then they harassed me and invaded me with cameras!”
“Don’t be afraid, Ms. We are here to demand justice for you.”
The leading police officer picked up an intercom and called another ten police officers. Soon, the paparazzi were taken away by them. The fans outside were told that Ye Sichen was not here. Then they dispersed.
“Atishoo!” Xia Nuan let out a loud sneeze and shivered with her arms folded. It was hot at noon, but she still felt the bone-chilling cold in the water.
“Clatter!” Ye Sichen sprang out from the water. It turned out that he was hidden under her white dress. His strong figure shrouded her, “Are you okay?”
“Yeah, I’m fine. It’s time to meet Bill. Wuyou and Nianci must be hungry now.” Xia Nuan lowered her head and shivered.
Ye Sichen wrapped his arms around her at once.
There were only the two of them in the water. Xia Nuan flat against his chest awkwardly, “Mr. Ye, I am fine, really.”
After that, she sneezed once again.
“Be quiet.” He ignored her struggles and then held her up. Dragging against the resistance of the water, they went ashore.
It was Ye Sichen who told the bodyguards to call the police. That’s why the police officers took the reporters afterwards.
Soon, the explosive news that Ye Sichen in the disguise of a beard man married a pregnant woman had resounded through the press circle. However, the onlookers did not buy it. After all, those tabloid reporters were charged with harassment in the end. Eventually, nothing was proved against the wedding affair.
Media reports even began to criticize those reporters for their lacking of professional ethics. They were so anxious to dig up Ye Sichen’s private life that they harassed a woman who was taking a shower.
“It must be Ye Sichen. I can’t be wrong. He kissed a pregnant woman and they got married.”
“No. He is not Ye Sichen. Luo Dai’er is the one that he got married. It is impossible for him to marry another woman. If so, he will be convicted on bigamy.”
“The world music festival will give us the final answer.”
The surrounding citizens shared their opinions as they were interviewed.
Ye Sichen turned off the TV with the remote control.
He stayed next to Xia Nuan in black, then he slowly got up and called Ken, “Ken, get ready for the music festival. I’ll be there tonight.”
He would never allow those immoral tabloid reporters to have anything against him.
After the call, he had a look at his watch.
Five o’clock. There were three hours left for them to prepare for the music show.
Xiu Lin came in at this moment.
“Sir, thank you for what you have done for my aunt. Thank you very much.”
“Sorry, I didn’t expect the wedding to be such a mess.” Ye Sichen felt guilty, “Is your aunt okay? Is she frightened?”
Xiu Lin shook her head, “She fainted at that time. When she woke up, she has already forgotten the past.”
Ye Sichen frowned, “We might as well re-schedule a wedding if she wants.”
“Thank you, sir. I’ve already recorded your wedding then and there. As long as she misses Wei Shi, I’ll play the tape for her. Anyway, thank you very much. You are the kindest man in the world.” Xiu Lin bowed to him with respectfulness, and handed over something like an envelope to Ye Sichen, “My aunt wrote it last night. She was worried about her memory, so she asked me to deliver it to you this morning.”
Ye Sichen took the letter and sent Xiu Lin off. Then he sat back next to Xia Nuan.
