Chapter 111: Call Me By My Name(3)
They walked side by side on their way back to the guest host. When they walked past a small plot of farmland, Qiao Moyu stumbled because of the uneven road. Their arms accidentally touched each other through their thin clothes. When their arms touched, they both could feel the electricity coursing through them from the slight touch.
Qiao Moyu felt a little weird from the touch so she moved a little to the side.
However, she almost fell because the road was too narrow.
Besides her, Ye Peicheng quickly reached out his arm and pulled her over to him. Her soft body hit his hard chest.
She raised her head, “Big brother……Ye”
The tone of her voice was very soft, and in the night, it sounded like the rain in Jiangnan.
Ye Peicheng’s Adam’s apple slightly moved, “Moyu, if you have any difficulties, you can come and find me. Don’t go and provoke Xing Yichen.”
Qiao Moyu believed that she doesn’t need to ‘remind’ Xing Yichen about anything else in the future. She believed that it will be a matter of time before Xing Yichen finds out the truth, so, she nodded her head in response.
However, she can’t help but ask, “Why do you want to help me?”
Ye Peicheng showed her the bite mark he had gotten from the snake. His eyes were locked on her as he replied, “I want to repay you.”
Qiao Moyu bit her lip and laughed, “It’s nothing. It was just a slight effort on my side.”
“So, you also help other people like this?” Ye Peicheng suppressed the grains of sand that were rising from the bottom of his heart.
Qiao Moyu replied with a smile, “I haven’t had the opportunity yet!”
In the past, her big brother had once helped her when she was bitten by a snake. So, she was only doing the same for him.
Qiao Moyu sighed when she thought about her big brother. She really wants to go back to her original world. But if she leaves, what will she do about Luo Luo?
She was a little distressed. When she looked up, she discovered that Ye Peicheng was still holding her waist. She can’t help but twist her body a little so he would let go. She said, “We should return.”
“Yeah,” he replied. He let go of her waist and the two people began walking side by side once again. Their shadows were elongated by the moonlight as they walked back to the guest house.
On the second day, everyone woke up early. Perhaps it’s because the air in the mountain is very fresh so when they woke up, they were full of spirit.
Qin Qianqian’s ankle was all better after a night’s rest. Everyone had breakfast at the dining hall of the guest house. Qin Qianqian and Qiao Moyu were currently together discussing their plans for the day. When they looked up, they saw Xing Wanshuang walking by with one hand pulling Qiao Ruohuan’s arm while her other hand was pulling Xing Yichen’s arm. She was laughing and telling them jokes but the expression of the two people on her sides appeared to be somewhat stiff.
Qin Qianqian pulled Qiao Moyu close and whispered in her ear, “Did you know President Xing and Qiao Ruohuan quarreled last night?”
“Ah?” Qiao Moyu was surprised, “When did this happen?”
“I think it happened late last night.” Qin Qianqian said, “My room is next to theirs, so I heard them arguing last night. I think I heard President Xing came back from the outside. Qiao Ruohuan was standing at the entrance of the corridor. She interrogated him when he returned. Afterward, the two people entered their room. The soundproofing wasn’t very good, so I was able to hear them arguing after they entered their room. However, I wasn’t able to clearly hear them what they were arguing about.”
Xing Yichen began arguing with her when he came back? Qiao Moyu’s lips curved into a smile. She thinks she knows why they were arguing.
It must be because Qiao Ruohuan followed Xing Yichen to the woods. Inside the wood, Xing Yichen happened to coincidentally meet her. Therefore, Qiao Ruohuan must’ve misunderstood Xing Yichen, thinking that there was something between them. So, when Xing Yichen returned from the woods, she had questioned him about it.
In fact, in the original book, Xing Yichen was 100% loyal and devoted to Qiao Ruohuan. The two of them almost didn’t have any conflicts. Otherwise, why would the book be called《The Film Queen’s Loyal Dog CEO》?
However, it seemed like the plot is getting more and more interesting. The corners of Qiao Moyu’s mouth twitched. She didn’t expect that she would one day become the pretty and flirtatious fox that would bring conflicts to the male and female lead. However, she doesn’t really mind because this gave her a sense of accomplishment!
She pretended she didn’t know anything as she said, “Then that’s even better! We must work harder and win tomorrow!”
Qin Qianqian said, “Moyu, with you here, I’m not worried about winning or losing!” She turned around and when she saw Ye Peicheng, she greeted him, “Good morning Teacher Ye!”
Why didn’t she think of calling him ‘teacher’ instead? Qiao Moyu was a little annoyed. She smiled at Ye Peicheng and said in a low voice, “Good morning big brother Ye!”
Ye Peicheng deeply looked at her and said, “Little Moyu, good morning.
