Chapter 87: Are You That Worried About Me?
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Around five o’clock in the morning. Good morning, Mom…” Jiang Yao was awake. She then sat on the bed and rubbed her eyes. She used her leg which was under the blanket to kick Lu Xingzhi, who remained in his original sleeping position. She whispered and urged, “Wake up, you should go back with Mom and take a nap later. Visit me after lunch. Perhaps I can go home later in the afternoon.”
She could lie in the same bed with Lu Xingzhi naturally and casually when there was no one else in the ward, but she did not have the hobby of superciliously showing her affection towards her husband in front of the elders.
Lu Xingzhi gave the woman, who was urging him to go home non-stop, a faint glance, then woke up and got off the bed. However, he did not go home as Jiang Yao wished.
“Mom, I will be staying back at the hospital. You can go home now. If she gets to be discharged this afternoon, I will give you a call. Just ask the driver to pick us up.”
Mrs. Lu knew very well what her own son meant. Upon being told that Jiang Yao was injured, he rushed back immediately even though he had only been away for a few days. He had more time to spend with Jiang Yao now and without a doubt, he would like to stay with her alone.
Mrs. Lu smiled and nodded her head. “Alright, I will leave the breakfast here. You two remember to grab something to eat. If anything happens, give me a call.” Then, Mrs. Lu left the ward unwillingly.
“You have been travelling throughout the night and didn’t even have enough rest. Why don’t you go back home and take a nap?” Jiang Yao sat on the bed and stared straight at Lu Xingzhi. “The bed is small and the hospital can be quite noisy during the day, you can’t rest well here.”
Lu Xingzhi did not answer her and straightaway cleaned himself up. Then, he came back and sat on the chair placed beside the bed. He then arranged the breakfast brought by Mrs. Lu.
Jiang Yao saw him having no intention to leave and started to nag again, “Just go home after you eat your breakfast.”
Lu Xingzhi suddenly stopped arranging the breakfast. He looked up and stared at Jiang Yao as if he was ready to endure all her nagging. As she progressed further, he even adjusted his sitting posture and sat straight like a student listening to his teacher in class.
At that time, it was not hard to tell that Lu Xingzhi was not bothered by the woman’s nagging at all but instead, a tinge of happiness flashed through his eyes.
He pulled his chair forward and got closer to Jiang Yao. Jiang Yao saw his reaction and did not say anything again.
Nagging at this man was meaningless. He did not defend himself, did not get mad, and did not even answer her. He was just staring at her to the point where she could not continue her nagging anymore.
“Jiang Yao…” Lu Xingzhi spoke suddenly and called her name. His voice was a little gruff. “Are you that worried about me for not having enough sleep?”
Before Jiang Yao could say anything, he stood up, put one of his hands on the back of her head, and pressed onto her face. He sealed her lips which were previously busy nagging at him with his.
This kiss was a little sudden. Both of their lips touched. He gave her a light peck at first, then he got excited and started exploring deeper. He clung onto her elegant little tongue as if he eagerly wanted something. He pulled her towards him but perhaps concerned about the wounds on her back, he only pulled her arms.
Jiang Yao did not know what Lu Xingzhi was desperately longing for, but she could sense his eagerness.
She kissed him back clumsily. Both of them were so close to each other, so close that her eyes could see nothing else but his face.
