Her actions woke He Jichen up from his shock.
He Jichen's first reaction was to struggle out of the liplock.
Because she was too seductive, he was afraid he couldn't control himself...
The moment his head moved back, Ji Yi felt him dodging her, so her slender arm wrapped around his neck. She pushed his head back violently and intensified their kiss.
The sweet aroma of her body wafted endlessly into his nostrils.
Her hot tongue darted around endlessly in his mouth.
It was probably the first time she initiated a kiss with anyone. She was clumsy, but it was enough to drive him crazy.
He Jichen felt the blood rushing to his brain, coursing quickly into his abdomen area.
Her lips hadn't left his when the tip of her tongue gently swept across the tip of his tongue. The sensation made his whole body quiver and instantly made him forget the video chat was still on. The last bit of reason he had disappeared to oblivion. When he parted from her tongue, he instinctively wanted to chase after it again and entangle himself with her. He pulled Ji Yi into a lock, initiating a kiss himself. He started to kiss her violently.
On the video call, Xia Yuan cried "Jichen" again. It was as though she was speaking to thin-air - she didn't get a single response.
Ji Yi and He Jichen's kiss grew heated and more entangled.
Gradually, the room filled with intimate noises.
In the haze of it all, Ji Yi could hear the sound of Xia Yuan's cries, but before she could figure out what the sob meant, her lips were violently sucked on by He Jichen. The air in her chest was sucked out little by little.
Her mind went blank. It was like they were the only ones left in the whole world.
They were entangled in the kiss for a long, long time. It was so long that Ji Yi felt she was going to die from lack of air. He Jichen's lips slowly left hers then he buried his head into her neck.
His breathing was a little rough and heavy as his chest heaved.
The tight grip around her waist loosened then tightened again. After some time, he slowly raised his head.
When he touched her swollen red lips from his kiss, a hot flow of blood started to course through his body again. He shut his eyes and took a deep breath, forcing himself to loosen his hands around her waist. He took a step back and put some distance between them.
Even if he couldn't bear to do it, he had to.
Because he was afraid that if they hugged too tightly, he might just finish her.
Five years ago, that night before their college entrance exams, he made her go through an ectopic pregnancy. She almost lost her life on the operating table.
Last year, that night in Shanghai, the first thing she did was take a morning-after pill. Even though her actions hurt him, he felt even more responsible because the morning-after pill was harmful to her body too.
He truly loved her, so he couldn't bear to hurt her in the slightest.
No matter how much he wanted her, no matter how many times he dreamt of being intimate with her, he wouldn't touch her until he was sure of Ji Yi's feelings or until she agreed to be with him...
He Jichen's departure led Ji Yi's warm body to drop in temperature. She gradually recovered her senses from the kiss.
It wasn't clear when He Jichen's phone crashed to the ground.
The video chat with Xia Yuan had already ended.
