Chapter 118: He’s Mine (3)
“I just want a place to myself, away from the capital. I don’t care about the environment and am only requesting this.”
Yu Xingzhi thought about it momentarily and said, “In Fengxiang, Xiaoxiao has a store. There is a married couple there; they are Xiaoxiao’s teachers and since you frequently come to my residence, you must’ve seen them before too.”
Gongsun Yu said, “I did see this couple before. Aunt Wu is very amiable and I have a deep impression of her.”
Yu Xingzhi said, “We have been on an expedition for half a year and they aren’t used to living in the capital, so they moved back to Fengxiang temporarily. Now, we just came back and Xiaoxiao got into an accident. I don’t have the time to bring them over, so you can go and look over them for your sister-in-law in the meanwhile. Plus, you can avoid the matters going on for a while.”
Gongsun Yu nodded and thanked him.
When she exited the room, she frequently looked back at Zhou Xiaoxiao, not wanting to leave her.
Yet, the real Zhou Xiaoxiao was waving her hands at her, but Gongsun Yu couldn’t see this.
Zhou Xiaoxiao was happy. “Xingzhi, Xingzhi, you’re great at arranging things. I will be comforted now that she left the capital and went to visit my master, his wife, and Aunt Qinglian. Hopefully, you can write a letter to second sister-in-law and have her pay attention to any good man for cousin. That way, she can finally walk out from the trauma.”
Yet, Yu Xingzhi can’t hear murmuring these words.
He fetched some warm water and carefully washed Zhou Xiaoxiao’s body, face, and her feet. Then, he changed her pajamas and cautiously carried her and placed her on the side of the bed, covering her with blankets.
He blew out the candle flame and laid by her side, softly touching her hair.
“Have a good sleep, Xiaoxiao.”
The dull Zhou Xiaoxiao quickly closed her eyes and he heard her even breaths after a while.
Yet, the real Zhou Xiaoxiao was standing by the bed and looking at Yu Xingzhi. Even in the darkness, his eyes were still bright.
She knew that Yu Xingzhi frequently kept his eyes open and stared at his soulless wife, not getting a wink of sleep.
She heard Yu Xingzhi’s soft voice in the darkness.
“Xiaoxiao, why aren’t you back? I miss you so much. I…can’t take it anymore.”
Although he said it in a soft voice, she felt a pang of her heart.
Zhou Xiaoxiao couldn’t help but lean over and kiss Yu Xingzhi.
Yu Xingzhi suddenly stood up as he felt someone kissing him.
But when the moonlight cast into the room, there was not a single person in the dark room.
He tightly clutched his pounding heart and said, “Xiaoxiao, Xiaoxiao, where are you?”
He painfully said to the air, “Come back. As long as you come back, I will never disobey your orders. I will agree to whatever you want.”
He stood up and took off the cyan cloth on the clothes hanger and caressed it.
Then, he covered his eyes with it, slowly laying on bed.
After a while, Zhou Xiaoxiao saw him opening his mouth and saying, “Xiaoxiao, how come you didn’t kiss me?”
Zhou Xiaoxiao felt bitter in her heart, cupping his face and harshly kissing him.
While kissing, Zhou Xiaoxiao was shocked to realize that she could touch her Xingzhi now.
She could clearly feel their skin touching each other.
Although she still couldn’t move the blankets, clothes, and inanimate objects, she could feel their lips on one another and the warmth of their hands genuinely.
It was extremely real!
Yu Xingzhi laid there and his face was pale, his lips trembling as he clearly felt herself too.
Yu Xingzhi suddenly raised his hands and took off his clothes.
The bright moonlight shone on his skin.
Although he couldn’t see anything, his chest heaved up and down and he asked in a hoarse voice, “Is it you? Xiaoxiao? Is it you?”
Zhou Xiaoxiao rolled on bed and said, “Tell me, is it me?”
She knew that Yu Xingzhi couldn’t hear her voice, so she answered him with her actions.
