Just as Qin Chu was about to continue, Huo Mian's phone ruined the moment by ringing suddenly.
Qin Chu wanted to reach out and smash the phone onto the ground, but Huo Mian got to it first.
She pushed Qin Chu away and got up awkwardly. She picked up her phone and walked towards the door.
Qin Chu's expression was horrible
"What's wrong? You sound weird."
"No I don't." Huo Mian was feeling a bit guilty.
"I don't believe you. I've known you for so long, don't try to trick me. Oh wait, were you and Qin Chu doing stuff that is inappropriate for young children to see?" Zhu Lingling snickered.
"You seem to be over your break up, I'm assuming that you're not killing yourself over it anymore?" Huo Mian didn't know what else to say.
"Of course, who do you think I am? I am the invincible and pretty Zhu Lingling. I just flew back into the city and have two days off. Let's hang out tomorrow and go on a road trip. I want to go to a farm outside the city to fish and then go on an excursion, what do you think?"
"Tomorrow? I can't tomorrow, it's my mom's birthday. How about the day after tomorrow? I will probably be free then."
"Oh right, I forgot that it's Auntie's birthday tomorrow. Okay then, let's make plans for the day after tomorrow."
After hanging up, Huo Mian returned to her room, embarrassed.
Qin Chu leaned on her bed, smoking a cigarette.
"Um Lingling asked if I wanted to go on an excursion with her, haha," Huo Mian explained.
"Tell Zhu Lingling to get her ass over here. I promise I won't beat her to death," Qin Chu growled angrily.
"Um ahem, um, it's late, goodnight."
"Are you kicking me out?" Qin Chu asked, glancing at Huo Mian.
"Isn't this supposed to be my room?" Huo Mian asked helplessly.
"Aren't you supposed to be my wife?" Qin Chu asked back.
Huo Mian was speechless
"So you don't plan on leaving?"
"You need to compensate for what happened just now. Tonight, we're sleeping on the same bed. Of course, if you think your bed isn't big enough, we can sleep in my room instead," Qin Chu tapped the ash off his cigarette and said presumptuously.
Huo Mian was furious, but she couldn't find a reason to say no.
The truth was, she understood his frustration. If it weren't for Zhu Lingling's phone call, Qin Chu would have gotten his way with her.
He was so close to tasting her; she should be glad that he wasn't going crazy
Finally, Huo Mian decided to compromise. She simply answered, "Deal."
Then began the days where Qin Chu dominated Huo Mian's bed
This was her first time sleeping in the same bed with Qin Chu. It felt weird, sleeping in his embrace.
This time was different from the last, because, last time, he snuck in during the middle of the night.
This time, they laid face to face.
Although seven years ago, they already enjoyed the sweet taste of making love, they were so young back then and had too much to drink that night. Neither of them could remember exactly what happened that night.
Embarrassed to look at Qin Chu, Huo Mian ended up turning her back towards him.
Qin Chu took that opportunity to hug her waist from behind, pulling her into his body.
This made Huo Mian more nervous than ever.
"Qin Chu, I'm telling you. Don't touch me where you're not supposed to, I'm ticklish," Huo Mian warned him.
"Don't worry, I won't, because I'll end up suffer more than you."
After quietly sleeping next to each other the entire night, the next day after breakfast, Qin Chu went to work, and Huo Mian went to the mall.
She spent a thousand yuan on a dress for her mother and ordered a cake. Then, she took the cab to her mom's.
As soon as she arrived, she smelled the delicious aroma of food. Her mother's yard was filled with close neighbors.
"Mian, you're back!" The neighbors all greeted her.
Yang Meirong turned around at the mention of Huo Mian's name. She looked at her with a stern face, "You don't have work today?"
