Why was there another hickey behind her ear?!
Ji Nuan was so pissed off that she rolled her eyes hard in the mirror. Now it seemed that she couldn’t wear clothes with low necklines or suspender skirts or tie her hair up although the weather was so hot!
She had slept all day and couldn’t sleep now. Soon, she caught a whiff of what she thought was a neighbor’s cooking, but the more she smelled, the more it seemed to come from outside the bedroom.
She had just smoothed out the wrinkles in her clothes. Smelling the fragrance, she could not help going over and opening the door.
As soon as she opened the door, she saw that Mo Jingshen had put a portion of mixed fried rice on a plate and put it on the table.
It was so late, there weren’t many ingredients at home, and it was raining outside. She thought she had to starve herself through the night.
But now she saw the simple but well-made bowl of fried rice. She paused but still kept a straight face. “Who did you make the fried rice for?”
“I think you know. If you don’t eat it, I’ll dump it.” He said indifferently but placed a pair of chopsticks on the table.
Come on, she was starving. How would she let him dump it?
She quickly stepped on the pair of men’s gray slippers that were too large for her, picked up the chopsticks, and took a mouthful of the fried rice.
Perhaps it was because she was hungry that whatever she ate was delicious.
She had forgotten how long she hadn’t eaten the food Boss Mo made. With the mouthful of fried rice, she felt much better and was no longer that angry.
She continued to eat a mouthful and didn’t look at his eyes but focused on eating silently.
Seeing her eat in satisfaction, he smiled, but that smile was too faint to be found by her.
Now he was still unhappy at what she said just now that ‘he was someone that she owed.’
Mo Jingshen went to the kitchen and brought a glass of milk for her. Ji Nuan was hungry and ate so fast that she choked on the meal. She took the milk from him but didn’t thank him. She took a sip of the milk, which was neither too hot nor cold, so she drank most of the glass.
When Ji Nuan was finally full, she didn’t volunteer to do the housework as before, for example, cleared the dishes and put them in the dishwasher. She just got up and didn’t even put away the dishes.
Look, what an ingrate she was!
However, Mo Jingshen didn’t say anything but took the dishes and bowls into the kitchen.
Ji Nuan wanted to go back to the bedroom, but she ate too much and also drank a glass of milk, so her stomach was a bit uncomfortable. After all, Mo Jingshen had “quenched his desire,” so she didn’t have to avoid him. She walked around the sofa twice and suddenly caught a glimpse of the room next to the study that had never been opened. Her gaze rested on the door of that room and hesitated for several seconds.
Mo Jingshen came out of the kitchen and saw Ji Nuan staring at that door.
Seeing him come out, Ji Nuan didn’t disguise her gaze but pointed to the door. “The door has never been opened, hasn’t it?”
“This is just a room like a warehouse storing books and sundry things. Are you curious about it?” The man glanced at the door.
“Just books and sundries?”
“Hai City has the best feng shui in China with both waters and mountains. The developer of Ao Lan International chose this site because a feng shui master told them that it had the best feng shui in China and this room was the center of this site, on which there should be a building and no one could sleep, so I leave this room vacant. This floor is at the top of Ao Lan International. According to feng shui, it’s right on the ‘dragon vein.’”
“So Ao Lan International has the best feng shui in China?”
Before she finished her words, Mo Jingshen said casually, “This apartment was purchased by my grandfather a long time ago. He gave this apartment to me and insisted that I should live in it with my wife, but I didn’t agree. Before you moved in, I just lived here several times because it was close to my company. There are only books and sundries in this room, without any furniture. It has never been used.”
Ji Nuan. “I can tell Grandfather Mo’s style from the luxurious decoration and furnishings in this apartment. It seems that he tried to build you the best wedding room ever. It’s totally his style to buy the top floor of Ao Lan International just for a good omen…”
Mo Jingshen’s face remained deadpan. He turned around. “Are you full?”
“Yes.” Ji Nuan nodded and was about to go back to the bedroom. But thinking that he made food for her anyway, she hesitated and asked, “The mixed fried rice is very tasty. I think I should be grateful to you. Except for becoming Mrs. Mo again, what else can I do for you? I want to repay your kindness.”
The man smiled. “You can pay me back with your body.”
Ji Nuan: “…”
She turned away in anger, but she couldn’t sleep and didn’t want to take off her clothes to take a shower when she went back to the bedroom. She always felt it was unsafe to take a shower here even if she closed both the bedroom and the bathroom’s doors.
When there was no sound outside, it was already ten o ‘clock at night.
Even though the room was air-conditioned, she felt uncomfortable not showering on such a summer night. She sat on the bed and listened for a moment, making sure he was busy in his study or had fallen asleep and hadn’t come out for a long time. Then she turned and went into the bathroom.
She had no problem bathing, except that she had to put a waterproof shower cap on her head to protect the wound. Although she deliberately cut the back of her hand and the skin was broken and ached, she could take a bath.
When she finally took a bath, dried her hair, put on her clothes, and came out of the bathroom, she turned up the temperature of the air-conditioning in the room and lifted the quilt to lie down.
Suddenly, the door of the bedroom opened.
She, who was about to get into the quilt, paused and then saw Mo Jingshen open the door and come in.
She grabbed the quilt and looked defensive. “Don’t you sleep in the study? What are you doing in the bedroom so late at night?”
The man looked at her and swaggered through the door, saying flatly, “The air-conditioning in the study is out of order.”
