Xuxu scanned the living room and walked towards the dining room.
The size and structure of this apartment were the same as hers.
The long dining table had a plate of fruit salad, a bottle of red wine, two glasses, and two candles.
Xuxu smiled out of sheer happiness. This fellow had indeed put in plenty of effort. The ambiance was really great. He seemed to have gone to the kitchen earlier on to switch off the gas stove. What was cooking in the pot?
She walked towards the kitchen. The brand new pot had two slices of steak which were almost done. By then, it should have gone cold.
She walked over and turned on the gas. She picked up a pair of chopsticks and flipped the steak to warm it up.
Yan Rusheng saw no sight of Xuxu in Xuxu’s apartment. So, he went to his and heard sizzling sounds coming from the kitchen.
He looked in the kitchen’s direction and walked with hushed footsteps. His eyes lit up with surprise when he peeked in.
Her luscious black locks ended at her waist and his oversized shirt—that she was wearing— hid her petite body. She seemed even more seductive and alluring.
Especially in the way she was flipping the steaks with a serious expression on her face. No words could describe how gentle she looked at that moment.
He walked over and hugged her tightly from the back. “Stupid woman. Are you trying to make full use of everything and me tonight?”
Yan Rusheng scared the wits out of Xuxu when he suddenly entered. After she had calmed down, she could feel his warm breath as she recalled what he said. A flush of red rose from her neck to her cheeks in rapid motion. “Stop being so shameless. Go out quickly!”
She nudged him with her elbow.
Yan Rusheng was famished too, so he knew better not to disturb Xuxu. He playfully pinched her thigh and left.
Xuxu brought the steaks out after she finished reheating it. A romantic and relaxing tune soon filled the living room. Yan Rusheng was standing by the dining table and swirling a bottle of red wine.
He had already lighted the candles.
Xuxu’s heart skipped a beat when she saw this scene.
She walked towards him with the plates, and Yan Rusheng passed a wineglass to her. “Stupid woman, let’s have a good meal.”
Then he lifted his glass and clinked Xuxu’s glass.
The sound of the wine glasses was crystal-clear and pleasant, and it had Xuxu momentarily dazed.
Her eyes started to glisten as she watched the man he had loved for more than a decade.
“Yan Rusheng, will we be together for a lifetime?”
No matter what happens in the future, you won’t release my hand?
No matter how much someone else loves you, you wouldn’t be moved by her?
Yan Rusheng frowned. “Who else would want a dumb woman like you except for me? Or were you counting on Jiang Zhuoheng?”
Xuxu was dumbfounded…
Here it comes once again. He had to mention Jiang Zhuoheng again.
If she told him then all along that he had been jealous of himself, how would he react?
But this memory was too much for her to recollect and look back once more.
The aftermath of their passionate night resulted in body aches and leg cramps. She couldn’t get up in the morning.
“Wen Xuxu, if you don’t get up now, I will throw you from the balcony.”
Yan Rusheng’s voice rang in her ears, and it kept disrupting her dreams. Xuxu frowned and whined. “I’m too exhausted. It’s the weekend, and I want to sleep in.”
She flipped over and tightly hugged her pillow. She dived deeper into her blanket.
Stupid woman, her bad habits were multiplying. She was pretentious, lazy, arrogant, crude, aloof…
