His fingers lingered over her face for a moment. Then he slowly moved over her brows as though he was treasuring something he couldn't bear to part with. His fingers gently hovered over the shape of her brows, repeatedly drawing over them several times. Then he followed her tall nose bridge and wandered over to her lips.
Ji Yi awoke from her dream when He Jichen touched her brows.
At first, she thought she was just dreaming and instinctively wanted to open her eyes. However, before she could open her eyelids, she felt slightly-cold fingers tracing her eyes and nose.
Her heart shuddered at this tangible touch when she suddenly realized it wasn't a dream. It was real and the person touching her was He Jichen...
With that thought, she then realized she wasn't wearing any clothes and her body was tightly stuck onto He Jichen's body. She also realized he was just as naked as she was...
Having slept for several hours, Ji Yi was more or less sobered up. Having had hangovers before, she could feel the familiar sensation of her entire body wanting to fall apart, but then she immediately realized what happened between them last night.
She couldn't quite remember everything, but with her scattered memory, she could remember that before he said goodbye, she started to drunkenly talk and kissed him... Following that, the sexual image of the two of them together washed over her mind.
Her heart suddenly raced and her fingers under the covers couldn't help but tightly grip onto the sheets.
She stopped reminiscing when she felt an electric current on her lips.
All of sudden, Ji Yi stopped.She felt the tips of his fingers stopping on her lips and slowly tracing the shape of them.
Wave upon wave of this numbing sensation washed over her heart as she couldn't help but hold her breath.
After who knew how long, he finally stopped teasing her. Just as Ji Yi was about to secretly exhale, she felt his face drawing closer to hers.
Ji Yi instinctively stopped breathing. Even with her eyes shut, her senses and intuition could feel his unwavering gaze upon her.
His gentle breaths brushed over her face every now and then, causing her heart to pound uncontrollably.
Just as she could no longer handle the racing of her heart, He Jichen shifted his head, causing Ji Yi to no longer feel the heat of his breaths.
She secretly let out a sigh of relief and loosened her clutch on the bedding. That was when she realized there was a thick layer of sweat on her palms that appeared unknowingly.
Without his breath upon her face, she wasn't sure about his location or what he was doing anymore. Out of curiosity, she wanted to secretly open her eyes to sneak a peek. However, before she could act upon that thought, she heard him exhale. "Xiao Yi."
He made a barely-audible sound; those two words were uttered under his breath. He never normally spoke to her like that, but it sounded unusually familiar, like Ji Yi heard it somewhere before.
Before Ji Yi could figure out what was happening, she heard He Jichen's voice again. "Wish you the best," he said in the same way.
