“Enough! Brother, you’ve never been able to show any evidence that brother Jun is a bad guy! How can you simply base everything off your own intuition and determine that he possesses ulterior motives?!”

Jun Xiaomo had the urge to roll her eyes right now – It’s only because you’re too weak! That’s how you ended up being toyed by me without even realizing it!
