782 Aside From You

 In that moment, Huo Shaoheng recalled what he said to Gu Nianzhi before. "Come seduce me. If you can seduce me, I'll be yours." Gu Nianzhi's words were nearly an echo of his. This little girl was seeking "revenge" then? Huo Shaoheng wanted to laugh, but with some more thought he realized it was even harder to let go. There seemed to be an extra little hand on his heart recently engorged with iron blood. It kept scratching at his heart and made it feel itchy. But when he nearly couldn't take it anymore, it suddenly disappeared. She was right in front of him in this beautiful moment, yet she was still somehow stoic like a shimmering dewdrop hanging from a willow branch in the vase of the Guanyin Bodhisattva-fresh, tender, weak, yet full of unimaginable vitality.

"Ok, you'll be mine if I can pursue you. But before I can pursue you, you can't be with anyone else," Huo Shaoheng said as he lowered his head to kiss Gu Nianzhi, blocking her mouth and kissing viciously. "You're not saying anything, so I'll assume your silence means agreement." He then removed the blankets to get out of bed and headed to the bathroom.

Gu Nianzhi was both angry and indignant. She thought about how he just assumed blocking her mouth meant silent agreement? He was ridiculous as usual...

...

Huo Shaoheng was in the bathroom for a long time, and it made Gu Nianzhi think he might've fallen asleep in the tub again. She thought about how she'd probably pass out standing in the middle of the road if she hadn't slept for four days and nights. Quickly putting on shoes, she went to the bathroom door to knock. "Huo Shao? Are you done washing?"

Huo Shaoheng was at a critical point. With the sound of Gu Nianzhi's voice, his hand jerked, and he finished... Closing his eyes, the afterglow of release coursed through his body as he lazily called out, "Yeah, I'm going to bathe right now." Afterwards, the sound of running water could be heard.

Gu Nianzhi pondered it a bit and finally understood. Face slightly flushed, she tried to keep her composure as she went back to bed and pulled the blanket over her head to continue sleeping. Although she couldn't really fall asleep, she still laid on the bed with her eyes closed.

After a while, she heard the bathroom door open, so Huo Shaoheng must've come out from his bath. Gu Nianzhi moved her blankets to take a glance, then was instantly about to get a bloody nose. Huo Shaoheng didn't wear a bathrobe and only had a white towel around his waist. His skin glowed tan in the morning light, along with his broad shoulders, powerful yet slim waist with clear muscle tone, and an eight pack that extended deep down underneath where the towel covered. His long legs extended from under his waist, long and slender yet carrying huge explosive power. Gu Nianzhi quickly shut her eyes and said, "You can wear my pajamas." Her pajamas were T-shirts anyway, so there was no problem with him wearing one.

Huo Shaoheng smiled. "Ok, matching pajamas."

Gu Nianzhi opened her eyes quickly and couldn't help wanting to punch the bed! She already knew she shouldn't have been so nice! Huo Shaoheng opened the closet and found a black T-shirt to put on, and then went to the study next door to get some of his change of clothes. Putting on his underwear, he then took a box out and put his daily toiletries and change of clothes inside. Carrying the box to Gu Nianzhi's bedroom, he then put it in his closet. Gu Nianzhi slept with her back to him and covered herself from head to toe in the blanket, so she had no idea what he was doing.

Closing the closet door, Huo Shaoheng came back to bed and moved the blankets so he could lie down. The alluring scent of Cool Water immediately permeated the blankets. Gu Nianzhi loved this men's cologne and had bought this brand of shower gel for Huo Shaoheng before. She didn't expect him to also have some of it here. "Didn't you shower? Why are you still sleeping?" Gu Nianzhi was unhappy to turn around and see Huo Shaoheng wearing the same black T-shirt she wore. She wanted nothing more than to take it off herself right away, but seeing Huo Shaoheng's suggestive look, how could she dare take it off?

"I'm sleepy... I'll sleep some more." Huo Shaoheng smoothly embraced her and closed his eyes. "I'm very happy you're letting me wear couple's pajamas with you."

Gu Nianzhi couldn't help rolling her eyes. "This is the only thing you can wear here, or do you want to wear my nightgown?"

Huo Shaoheng chuckled quietly. "Still not going to admit it? Little liar..." This kind of intimate nickname seemed to take them back to sweeter times from before. Back then, she would be satisfied to merely focus on adoring him. She should've always kept on admiring him from afar, then all the subsequent sadness and disappointment would've never happened. Gu Nianzhi's mood was down again. She also closed her eyes and said very earnestly, "I really wasn't. You're just thinking too much."

Huo Shaoheng gently patted her back but didn't argue. He changed the topic. "Why are you so busy lately? What are you in a rush to do?"

Gu Nianzhi's heart trembled, so Huo Shaoheng knew her the best, after all... "I want to graduate early as I told you before. It's been approved recently." Gu Nianzhi shifted her body. "After I work hard for four more months, no, three more months-after Lunar New Year-I can graduate."

"How are you handling it?" Huo Shaoheng opened his eyes and carefully studied her face. Her skin was clear and luminous, and because of her youth, it was plump and soft in the morning after a good night's sleep. Like a freshly peeled lychee, she looked so supple and sweet that he couldn't help wanting to take a bite out of her. Her brows were dark without being drawn on, and her eyelashes were lush and dark to cover the large eyes he loved and loathed. Her tiny and delicate nose bridge and slightly rounded nose tip paired with curvy lips, as well as the faint dimples on the corners of her mouth made her look just like an exquisitely painted beauty. Huo Shaoheng thought that every single inch of this beauty had been crafted from the creator's ideal vision.

Although he knew Gu Nianzhi was often working all night as of late, there were no bruises under her eyes, nor was her skin a sickly pallor. She appeared luminous like peaches and cream, and with sight agitation, her snow-white cheeks would look like she had put on a layer of blush. Her rosy hue glowed from within, and not only was she incomparably beautiful, but she was also healthy-looking. Gu Nianzhi was starting to blush from Huo Shaoheng's stare. Opening her eyes, she met Huo Shaoheng's dark ones and suddenly asked boldly, "Huo Shao, I always thought you wouldn't be such a needy person after breaking up..."

"Yeah, I definitely wouldn't be with anyone else," Huo Shaoheng replied calmly, not falling for Gu Nianzhi's trap, "aside from you."

"...Am I that good?" Gu Nianzhi was a bit arrogant and vain, but also felt unsuppressable unease. Looking down, she didn't dare look in his eyes again.

Huo Shaoheng gazed at her as he replied easily, "Yeah. I invested so much effort in you, you wouldn't want me to lose everything, right?"

"You're treating a relationship like business?" Gu Nianzhi's expression darkened and when she looked up again, her eyes were full of anger.

This anger made her look even more lively and beautiful. Huo Shaoheng lifted her chin and stared deeply at her. "You're the one splitting hairs with me, so I have no choice but to oblige."
