She snapped out of the daze she had been into, to look into his eyes as she handed over his wristwatch back to him. "I'm sorry" she apologized shamefully. He chuckled as she handed over the wristwatch to him and turned to leave, he quickly held her hand and dragged her back to himself. "You returned just one of the two things you stole from me" he said with an amused smile. "What? I took just you wristwatch, and I'm sorry. Whatever else is missing you'll have to search for it elsewhere. I don't mind you asking someone to pat me down" she offered feeling very embarrassed. "Unfortunately I doubt it'll be found on you. I know you're with it" He said with twinkling eyes which shone with amusement. "What is it that you have lost? I will get it back to you, and buy it if it'll save me from this embarrassment" She said with a flushed face. "I don't want it back. But keep it safe... My heart" he said and chuckled when her eyes widened in shock. ONLY A KLEPTOMANIAC WAS CAPABLE OF STEALING WANG YUN'S HEART. "Henceforth, whatever you pick I will buy in bulk. If it is something edible, I will watch you eat it all up while I pay for it. If it is a book, you will read it. If it is a phone, I will buy you a dozen and make sure you carry it everywhere. So if you don't want me to go bankrupt you better don't pick up very expensive things." Yun warned before reminding her to pick up her 'gifts'.

She knew she was making a mistake but that didn't stop her from sinking deeper and deeper into his charm. All she wanted now was to leave! But leaving hell was not nearly as easy as getting in.

[ENRICHED WITH MATURE CONTENT. PLEASE READ WITH CAUTION. ] "You're mine. Am I clear? You're my property." Mystique was pressing her thighs against his, which he could never break free from her beguiling clutches. She was on top of him; the surge of confidence came with her and took charge for the whole ride. Her eyes were obscured with gleaming lust, and her hands worked their wonders and slinked to his chiseled abs up to his brawn sweaty chest. Every time she landed a smooth caress, he let out a stuttering moan as he was in spasms. His toes would dig deep into the mattress, no different from his nails that clawed, not trying to touch her sacred body. It wasn't all as she reached for his nipples, rubbing them ever-so-softly. The man would throw his bobbed back to the woolly pillows and arched his back from pleasure. Even though the bed creaked—fast and subtle that played their ears—she loved it. Just as she adored every point in him... Not a second delayed as he would shiver every time she would stroke the same parts of him. On the other hand, she has kept up the pace ever since. She crashed her well-endowed chest against his. Their lips parted by a hair's breadth, and he gritted his teeth as he saw her angelic feature up-close, driven by ecstasy. His gestures and countenance fueled her within, hastening the pace. There, he couldn't control his voice and let out pleasurable groans and grunts. Within those seconds, more thoughts began to blur her. She grabbed a handful of his hair, bringing him closer to her while whispering his ear. "You're mine. Am I clear? You're my property." *** VOLUME 1: AUTHOR TRANSMIGRATION "I want to write Villain perspective! Enough of this Hero and Heroine gig!"
