The two of them hugged in silence.
After some time, he suddenly said, "I dreamed of hugging you like this..."
That one line melted Ji Yi's heart.
"...now, I finally got that hug..."
There was a faint hint of emotion in He Jichen's voice that made Ji Yi's eyes sore for some reason. She didn't say anything but hugged He Jichen's arm tighter.
It was already half past ten by the time they returned to Beijing.
He Jichen woke up once while Ji Yi slept throughout the day. He gave Zhang Sao a call and asked her to head over to the apartment early to clean up, so after their plane landed, he asked Tang Huahua to immediately drive them to his apartment.
Zhang Sao was no longer there, but there were hot dishes on the dining table for them.
It was midnight by the time they finished dinner and headed back to the bedroom.
After the two of them took their respective showers and climbed into bed, they started doing what they did that night in C City.
After a long, long time, He Jichen exhaled heavily while spread out over Ji Yi's body, completely drenched.
After his violently-heaving chest calmed down, he turned over and got out of bed. He picked up a towel beside him, wrapped it around his waist, and walked into the bathroom.
Not long after, he grabbed a warm wet towel and gently wiped Ji Yi's body clean. After he threw the towel back into the bathroom, he laid in bed and reached out his arm over to Ji Yi.
Ji Yi immediately used He Jichen's arm as a pillow and nestled in the crook of his arm.
The two of them didn't say anything but laid there in silence.
Maybe it was because she had slept for a really long time during the day that although time ticked by, sleepiness didn't take over Ji Y. Instead, she became even more energetic.
Ji Yi's eyelids opened and glanced at He Jichen's face.He was leisurely shutting his eyes as his comfortable eyelashes didn't tremble at all.
He really was resting his eyes. He looked like a picture... Ji Yi stared at He Jichen for a while and gently moved her lips. "He Jichen?"
She wasn't sure whether He Jichen was asleep or not. She spoke really quietly in fear she would really wake him up.
"Hm?" She never imagined he would reply immediately after her voice dropped. Thereafter, he opened his eyes and looked over at her.
When her gaze met his, Ji Yi's heart skipped a beat. "You're not sleepy?"
"Mhm." He Jichen replied with just one word again, but by his tone, his previous question turned into an affirmative sentence.
"Me too. I slept too much in the day, so I can't sleep no matter what." With a pause, Ji Yi added, "He Jichen, let's chat for a bit."
"Alright." He probably thought his response was too brief, so after Ji Yi's reply, He Jichen added, "Your boobs seem a little bigger than before."
"Huh?" said Ji Yi, stunned since He Jichen randomly blurted that out. She then realized what he said, immediately making her cheeks flush.
He Jichen chuckled softly and realized he said something perverted, so he tried to change the subject. "Are you going to Huan Ying tomorrow?"
"Uh huh, in the morning."
"Oh." He Jichen then added. "But you're the same as before. I touch you just a little and your body just melts into a pool of water."
We were just talking, how did the topic get back to this... Ji Yi's face flushed all over again.
