Yan Rusheng turned around and lay down on the bed.
He shut his eyes, and it looked like he wasn't planning to say another word.
Xuxu's eyes trailed over his good-looking face, and after struggling internally for a while, she tiptoed cautiously to the other end of the bed. She gingerly lifted the blanket and laid herself down as carefully as she could.
She lay sideways with her back facing Yan Rusheng. She moved closer to the edge, and any movement she made could cause her to fall off the bed.
It was the first time someone had lain next to him on his bed.
Never in Yan Rusheng's wildest dreams did he see himself sharing a bed with Wen Xuxu one day. And as husband and wife, no less.
'You're like a tigress. No one will marry you when you grow up.'
'Yan Rusheng, I dare you to repeat yourself!'
He glanced askance at the tiny woman who was sleeping so cautiously at the edge of the bed. His expression was filled with tenderness.
He was worried that Xuxu might not be able to sleep at night. So Yan Rusheng consulted a Chinese physician to prescribe some medicine to calm her nerves and to nourish her body. She would take it with milk before she slept.
For Xuxu, even though the person lying next to her was someone she loved and feared, she couldn't suppress the drowsiness that washed over her. She quickly fell asleep despite being on tenterhooks.
Yan Rusheng observed her how her body undulated as she breathed. He knew she was fast asleep when her breathing became regular and steady.
He moved... and inched slowly towards her.
He didn't want to wake her up and merely wanted to move closer so that he could smell the fragrance in her hair.
He took a lock of her hair and twirled it between his fingers. He could hardly contain himself just by breathing in her delicate scent.
Unexpectedly, he gradually felt calm and peaceful as he listened to her steady breathing.
Wen Xuxu, you promised that you'll never leave me.
Drinking a glass of milk did help her to fall asleep, but the drawback was that she needed to relieve herself at night.
Xuxu opened her eyes drowsily as she fumbled for the light switch.
Suddenly she felt that something had wrapped around her waistYan Rusheng!
She jolted awake instantly and moved her hand under the blanket towards her waist. She felt his buff arm and her heart pounded fiercely.
Biting her lips, she carefully withdrew her outstretched hand. She endured it until Yan Rusheng woke up and left the bed, then she scrambled out from the covers and dashed into the toilet.
But she was unaware that the bedroom door wasn't completely closed. A pair of eyes watched her affectionately as she bolted for the toilet. "Stupid woman."
If he didn't wake up, was she planning on holding her bladder forever?
The toilet lights switched on, and Yan Rusheng closed the door, feeling at ease.
After a while, she came out of the toilet and went back to bed. It was barely 5 a.m. in the morning.
He was up so early.
She glanced at the door and mumbled under her breath.
She lifted the blanket, and the entire bed showed traces of them rolling around. She couldn't help but move towards the area which Yan Rusheng had slept on last night.
The pillow still smelled faintly of hima light fragrant scent.
When she woke up hours later, she realized that she was hugging Yan Rusheng's pillow. And she embraced it tightly.
She released the pillow guiltily and scanned the room. After making sure that the room was empty, she heaved a sigh of relief.
It was almost time for lunch when she woke up. She washed up and left the room.
"Be careful and don't damage the cupboard."
After she exited the bedroom, she saw two men transporting Grandmother's bed out from her bedroom. The butler stood nearby, monitoring and instructing them.
She rushed forward to stop them. "Where are you taking Grandmother's bed?"
