Elder Xi knew when to step back, so he nodded. "Alright, this should be your decision anyway. Grandfather believes in both of you."
"Thank you." Mubai replied with a smile, appreciative of his grandfather's understanding. Xinghe looked at Mubai, her eyes seemed to speak of her appreciation as well. She appreciated his understanding of her refusal, without demanding a reason from her.
Mubai grabbed her hand and leaned in and whispered in her ear, "I'm not that generous, you'll have to explain everything to me when we get home later, okay?"
Without a valid explanation, he would not relent so easily. Staring at Xinghe, Mubai purposely gave a wicked and dangerous grin.
Xinghe merely nodded in return with a smile. She felt like she did owe him an explanation.
When they reached the Hills Residence, Mubai pulled Xinghe to the bedroom.
"Tell me, why don't you want to get married? What did you discuss with Miss Xie today?" Mubai stared at her and asked directly. He was not dumb, he knew this probably had something to do with Xie Xiaoxi. Xinghe must have found out something from her. Xinghe nodded and explained everything to him.
Mubai's face was drawn. "You really believe this doomsday talk?"
"Initially, I didn't much of it, but now, I don't think I can brush it off so easily. Ye Shen mentioned it and now Xie Xiaoxi has mentioned it, therefore, this deserves a more in-depth looking into."
"I agree, since it seems to be related to the energy crystal which does require a lot more research," Mubai concurred.
Xinghe continued, "Therefore, I need to get to the bottom of this as soon as possible, or else I'm afraid something seriously bad might happen. It'll be too late to do anything against it then. Furthermore, I also wish to locate my mother."
"Okay, I will help you do all that!" Mubai promised without a shred of hesitation, even though he himself hadn't completely bought into the sci-fi talk. However, if this was something she wanted to do, he would support her fully.
Xinghe was thankful of his trust and support. She hugged him and said, "When this is over, we will get married."
Mubai shivered all over. This was the first time Xinghe actively brought up the idea of marriage.
He grabbed her shoulders, pushed her back slightly and gazed into her eyes. "You're not kidding, are you?"
Xinghe nodded. "Of course, I'm not kidding."
"Since you've promised that, you can only marry me as long as you may live, no backsies!" Mubai demanded both childishly and proprietarily.
Xinghe couldn't help but laugh a little. "I will not, as long as you won't regret this decision."
Mubai's face split into a broad smile. "Why would I regret the greatest decision I've ever made in my life?"
Then, he pulled her back into the hug and kissed her deeply. Earlier, his heart was crowded with fear and anxiety, but now, that had all dissipated.
He believed Xinghe to be a woman of her word. Since she had promised to marry him, then she wouldn't take it back.
Finally, he felt a heavy stone being lifted from his heart because she was finally his, he could feel his heart settle into a pool of happiness.
The more he thought about it, the more excited he got and the deeper he kissed. He wished to kiss every inch of her body, but right at that moment, Xinghe's phone rang!
