779 Courting Method

 Was it possible to not get out of the car?

Again, Gu Nianzhi remained in the car and didn't move.

Huo Shaoheng ignored her and got out of the car to walk over to the passenger's side. He stretched out his hand and opened the door. Again, he said, "Get out of the car."

Gu Nianzhi felt a hint of danger in the air. She looked at Huo Shaoheng's stern expression and clenched her teeth as she said, "I want to go back to the school."

"Gu Nianzhi, didn't you always want to prove that you are a grown-up? But you are absolutely acting like a child right now. Yet you want to talk about equality with me?" Huo Shaoheng knocked on the car door. His speech was somewhat threatening. "Don't make me do it."

Gu Nianzhi became even more furious. Her speech became incoherent when she got angry. "I'm a kid that hasn't grown up? You always interfere in my life! What does that make you?!"

"That's right. I'm a bad person. You want to say that, right? That I'm a pervert?" Huo Shaoheng leaned in and carried her out of the car in one swoop. "Do you want to have a taste of what a real pervert is like?"

Gu Nianzhi's anger muddled her head. She struck at him and scratched at his face.

Huo Shaoheng tilted his head. His head avoided Gu Nianzhi's fingers, but his neck was not so fortunate. There was a welt forming where she'd scratched him.

Gu Nianzhi saw the blood. Her muddled head cleared up.

She bit her lip as she looked at Huo Shaoheng with unease. "...Why didn't you dodge? Don't tell me that you couldn't dodge..."

Huo Shaoheng stared at her for a short time and put her down. He leaned her against his side and stood firm as he said, "Nianzhi, if you want people to treat you like an adult, you have to act like an adult."

"How am I not acting not like an adult?" Gu Nianzhi was very unsatisfied. Her little mouth was a bit swollen from being kissed was sticking up again. "You are clearly biased against me."

She also knew that she had grown up with Huo Shaoheng. Maybe in Huo Shaoheng's heart, no matter what she did, she would always be that kid that listened to everything he said and would always look up to him...

But she was clearly an adult now! Was it he who didn't understand, or was it she that didn't understand? Gu Nianzhi was so fidgety that she wanted to walk in circles where she was.

"I have my own way of looking at things. You have your way of looking at things. We both seek a common ground and want to put our differences aside." Huo Shaoheng lowered his head and looked at her swollen little mouth. He could not look away. He could not refrain from bending down. He lifted her face and said, "I'm going to kiss you again. You are not allowed to get angry."

This time, he didn't suddenly kiss her. He informed her first. Nonetheless, it was still unreasonable.

Gu Nianzhi scattered her hands. She wanted to push him away, but this time he tried his best to be gentle. He didn't suck at her with great force. The lips only rubbed and touched.

The force he used was just right. The warmth from the kiss went directly from Gu Nianzhi's lips to her heart.

The gentler and softer the touch, the more intense that numbing and ticklish the electric shock sensation was.

Before Gu Nianzhi came to her senses, her relaxed hands were already embracing Huo Shaoheng's waist. She began to kiss him back.

Huo Shaoheng's body became temporarily stiff. Then he kissed harder. His kisses were not even confined to her lips but were on her cheek, her nose, her forehead, and even her eyelids.

Gu Nianzhi only came to her senses when he excitedly used a bit too much strength.

She realized that she was actually kissing Huo Shaoheng back. She quickly let go of his waist. She tilted her head to avoid his kiss. She gasped for breath a bit and said, "...Okay, this is a parking lot. Aren't you afraid that someone will take a picture of you without you knowing it?"

Huo Shaoheng stopped trying to kiss her and pressed her head to his chest. He said in a calm and collected manner, "No. I kissed my wife. What kind of problem is there?"

Only after the two of them had quietly nestled against each other for a short while did Huo Shaoheng let her go. He turned around and grabbed a paper bag from inside the car. Inside was Gu Nianzhi's top-grade pink diamond crown. He closed the car door and locked it. He held Gu Nianzhi's hand with his free one and walked toward the elevator in the parking lot.

Gu Nianzhi didn't refuse or say anything. He held her hand as they went directly to the sixth floor.

602, Gu Nianzhi's second-hand home was on the sixth floor.

He used the key card to open the door. The apartment was pitch-black inside. If one held out their hand in front of them, one would not be able to see their own fingers.

Huo Shaoheng pressed a few switches on the wall. Immediately, the space became very bright.

The room immediately attracted Gu Nianzhi's attention. It was not at all like what she remembered. The whole interior had been torn down and was newly renovated.

Before, there had been a fake wooden floor. The wall had been painted a light color of thin waterproof paint. The renovation was very elegant, but upon closer examination, it had not been that well done. It was a bit cheap overall.

The newly renovated room was obviously different.

One could tell with just one glance that the floorboard was of the best-quality cherry wood. It was a very warm reddish-brown color. One could clearly see the wood veins.

There was now a vestibule where they entered the apartment. One no longer saw the whole living room the moment they came in.

Huo Shaoheng opened the shoe cabinet in the vestibule and said, "Take your shoes off."

Gu Nianzhi obediently took off her ankle boots and put on a pair of soft furry slippers. They were the same brand that she was accustomed to wearing when she was in Huo Shaoheng's official residence.

Walking in from the vestibule, one could see that the whole living room was what people would consider to be a simple and modern style. It was simple, but not cheap. It looked like it took more time and energy to put together a room in that beautiful and imposing style.

Huo Shaoheng had indeed put forth a lot of effort into renovating that apartment. Especially since it only took him two weeks...

Gu Nianzhi walked around every room.

Huo Shaoheng took her to the bedroom and showed her the built-in safe hidden behind the wardrobe. He told her the password and the method to open it. Then he put her top-grade pink diamond crown in it. "I will bring a pretty box for you tomorrow. You can put the crown in the pretty box. It will preserve it better."

Gu Nianzhi nodded. Then she, alone, looked around the guest room that was next to the bedroom.

She noticed that the only guest room had been renovated into a study as soon as she walked into the room. The things inside looked like they belonged to Huo Shaoheng...

Gu Nianzhi walked out of the guest room and knocked on the door.

Huo Shaoheng walked over and looked at her. "What's the matter?"

"What happened to this room? I don't remember wanting a study." Gu Nianzhi raised her eyebrows. "I bought the home myself. Why would a single female build a study for a man?"

Although married, Gu Nianzhi and Huo Shaoheng had some agreements about it. Their marital status would not be made public without Gu Nianzhi acknowledging it.

That was why Huo Shaoheng could not use the reason of them being already married as a basis to ask her.

"...Single females also have suitors and boyfriends," Hu Shaoheng reminded her. "I'm courting you right now. You agreed."

Gu Nianzhi hugged her arms around herself and walked a few circles around Huo Shaoheng. She couldn't hold back and asked, "Huo Shao, aren't you embarrassed by saying something like that?"

"Why should I be embarrassed?" Huo Shaoheng was calm, composed, and at ease as he walked into the study and sat down. He turned the computer on.

That was his work computer. Of course, he'd put it there because it was convenient.

"...You are only courting me, but your things have already passed through the hall and entered the inner chamber. Do you even know what courting is?" Gu Nianzhi raised her jaw. "Want to ask Brother Xiong and see how he courted Qiqi?"

Huo Shaoheng said, "...Are you Qiqi?"

"No."

"Am I Big Xiong?"

"...Of course not."

"Then why do you require me to court you like other people court?" Huo Shaoheng said that without turning his head as he turned off the computer. He stood up and walked over to her. "It's already very late. Go take a bath. I'll draw the water for you, okay?"
