Chapter 399: A Passionate Kiss
While they were laughing and chatting sweetly, the couple in front of them had already gotten ready and were prepared to jump at any time.
Suddenly, the girl said, “Hon-Honey, I’m so scared! I’m almost going to hyperventilate! Let’s not do this!”
As pale as a sheet, she grasped the safety belt next to her tightly and was so frightened that her voice was trembling. She appeared genuinely terrified.
The man opposite her was about 25 years old. Upon hearing what she said, he immediately lashed out at her with a look of displeasure, “What’s wrong with you? If you’re scared, why didn’t you say so earlier? Now that we’re already prepared to jump, you’re chickening out. Aren’t you just wasting my time? Besides, I accompanied you here because you said that you wanted to bungee jump. Yet you don’t want to jump now. Are you taking me for a ride?”
He rebuked unceremoniously.
The girl’s face became extremely sullen. She was squatting half a meter behind the edge of the platform, not daring to look out or move forward at all.
She initially really wanted to bungee jump, but when she finally stood on the high platform, she was petrified and overwhelmed with fear.
“I… I really can’t do it! It’s too scary! Honey, how about you jump on your own while I take a video of you?” the girl asked while shuddering.
“Is there something wrong with you? I spent a hundred and fifty bucks on these tickets for the bungee jump, and they’re non-refundable. My money’s going to go to waste if you don’t jump! Come on. Let’s do it together!”
Then the man dragged the girl toward him adamantly and leaped off the edge of the high platform together with her.
They screamed miserably almost at the same time.
Surprisingly, the man’s scream was even more distressed than the girl’s!
Cheyenne looked down and said indignantly, “That girl clearly said she was scared, yet her boyfriend forced her to jump. He’s such a jerk! I’d definitely sever all ties with anyone who dared to do that to me!”
Lucas chuckled. “Don’t worry, Honey. I definitely won’t treat you like that! Speaking of which, you’ve lost the bet just now!”
Cheyenne blushed a little as she glared at Lucas. “I didn’t agree to bet with you. It doesn’t count!”
Seeing the chagrined and crestfallen expression that appeared on Lucas’s face after he heard what she said, Cheyenne couldn’t help covering her mouth and laughing a little. While laughing, she looked so gorgeous that the staff around them were stunned.
Only when Lucas coughed twice did the two staff members, a man and a woman, return to their senses. They hurriedly said, “Alright, it’s your turn now!”
Soon, both of them strapped on their safety gear and attached their harnesses to the safety rope. They were both ready to jump.
Standing on the edge of the high platform and thinking that they were going to jump very soon, Cheyenne felt a little incredulous and nervous. She couldn’t help taking a deep breath.
Holding her shoulders, Lucas asked in a gentle voice, “Are you ready?”
Biting her lip, Cheyenne looked at the tall and handsome Lucas in front of her and nodded gently. “Yes!”
“Let’s do it then!” Lucas suddenly extended his hands and held Cheyenne tightly in his embrace, his arms wrapping around her waist and arms.
“Honey, we’ll stay together forever!” Then Lucas plunged toward the side with Cheyenne in his arms!
There was no longer any support under their feet, and they were both plunging down rapidly in free-fall motion. As the wind whistled in their ears and brushed against their bodies, they felt as if they were going through the last release before death!
This supposedly horrifying moment that should leave people feeling defenseless and helpless was somewhat pleasant for Cheyenne, who was being held in Lucas’s strong arms and feeling the warmth of his chest. Hearing the sounds of his heartbeat, she suddenly felt extremely at ease.
She felt that she would be fearless toward anything as long as he was by her side!
Cheyenne opened her eyes and looked into Lucas’s eyes right in front of her. Without blinking at all, they seemed to be etching each other into the deepest parts of their hearts.
Cheyenne’s heart began pounding rapidly with loud thumps.
It wasn’t because of fear or nervousness. Rather, it was purely palpitating because of the adrenaline rush from her eye contact with Lucas.
She suddenly closed her eyes and planted a kiss on Lucas’s lips!
It was the first time in her life that she took the initiative to kiss someone.
Lucas was astonished for a moment and subconsciously opened his eyes wide. But when he felt the warm and soft touch of her lips on his, it dawned on him that she was kissing him. He tightened his arms around Cheyenne and nestled her firmly in his embrace, wishing he could hug her even more tightly.
The kiss was extremely affectionate and intoxicating!
The tension force of the safety rope pulled them up and swung them back and forth in the air. The trajectory of the rope gradually became smaller and eventually came to a halt. Only when their feet touched the ground did they recover from the passionate kiss.
“Wow, oh my god! That’s so romantic!”
“Sweetheart, let’s go do a double bungee jump too. I want to do what they did!”
“I’m crying with envy! This couple are such thrill-seekers. They’re obviously deeply in love with each other! Darling, do you think we can be as loving as them in the future?”
Countless people had been standing around and watching Lucas and Cheyenne share a passionate kiss during the bungee jump. They were all green with envy.
Due to the large distance between them, Cheyenne couldn’t hear what they were saying. But she knew from the fact that so many people were staring at her that they must have seen her kissing Lucas uncontrollably. She couldn’t help blushing shyly.
After untying the safety rope and removing the protective gear, she immediately pulled Lucas away.
Lucas looked at Cheyenne’s flushed, delicate face smilingly and felt extremely sweet like he had just eaten honey.
The kiss just now took their relationship to another level. Hand in hand, they walked around the amusement park and would occasionally meet each other’s gazes. They felt extremely blissful.
Time flew like an arrow. By the time they decided to leave in high spirits after a pleasant afternoon in the amusement park, it was already dusk.
Soon after they stepped out of the amusement park, they were stopped by a girl carrying a basket of flowers.
“Hey, handsome and gorgeous, nice to meet you! I can tell at a glance that you must be very much in love with each other. Would you like to buy some flowers for this stunning beauty beside you? Girls love it when guys are romantic. These flowers don’t cost much. They’re two dollars a stalk!”
The girl seemed to be a young teenager, and she had a fresh and energetic appearance. There were probably dozens of roses in her basket. Although she had been here all afternoon, the roses in the basket were still fresh, vibrant, and delicate.
Cheyenne was a little surprised. “You’re so young, and you’re selling flowers here on your own?”
With a sweet smile, the girl pointed at a middle-aged woman around ten meters away from them. “I’m here with my mom! We’re struggling to make ends meet, and my father’s sick, so my mom and I come here to sell flowers during my free time.”
She didn’t seem the least bit embarrassed or upset about her humble background. Instead, she was optimistic and confident, making her extremely likable.
Looking at the optimistic mother-and-daughter duo who were dependent on each other for life, Lucas suddenly thought about the time when Cheyenne had single-handedly taken care of Amelia and felt rather emotional.
“How many roses are there in your basket? I’ll take them all,” Lucas said smilingly after glancing at Cheyenne.
