760 Pei Ge, I want you.
"Don't be mad."
He took her still damp hands in his and rubbed them gently.
When she felt the gentle but cool sensation on her hands, she cooled down a little, but she was still a little miffed.
"You're so mean." She glared at him gloomily. She was starting to realize that this man was getting glibber.
He used to be such a high and mighty man! Now…
She realized that he was getting better at talking. Not only were his sweet nothings a little too much for her to take, he could lie to her without batting an eyelid as well! Moreover, he could have her buying into anything he said.
"I was just teasing you earlier; don't be mad." He dipped his head and smiled despite her glaring at him.
"I wonder, though. Are you mad at because of me teasing you or me not wanting—"
She interrupted him before he could finish.
"You annoying fellow, wh-what are you talking about?! Who's angry because you don't want to sleep with me?"
Amused by her behavior, he started chuckling.
"Don't laugh!" Only then did she realize what she had just said.
She prayed that there would be a hole in the ground for her to burrow into.
"Okay, okay, okay. I won't laugh; I won't laugh." Even though Ji Ziming said that, he could not control his facial expression.
He continued grinning at her brightly.
"You're still laughing!" She blushed when he grinned at her tenderly and lovingly.
"I'm not laughing at you; I'm just really happy." He reached out and pulled her into his arms to embrace her gently.
Her heart calmed down as she listened to his heartbeat.
"What are happy about?" She looked up at him, her chin resting on his chest.
"I'm happy that… your thoughts are the same as mine," he said plainly.
"What is the same?" she asked, blinking in confusion.
"Your feelings of love toward me are the same as mine." He planted a kiss on her forehead.
Feeling the tender kiss, the anger in her completely disappeared.
"Pei Ge, you're not mistaken. I indeed…" He lowered his head and put his mouth next to her ear. "Want you."
These words, like lightning, resonated through her from her ear to the rest of her body.
It made her tingle.
Her brain was overtaken by those words, and her heart started beating wildly.
Feeling the softness of her in his embrace, a smile flashed across his eyes, and his cold, thin lips pecked her earlobe.
"However, I want to treasure you and don't want you to feel uncomfortable in any way, shape, or form." He moved his head away and stared right into her eyes.
Even though he did not make things clear, she understood what he meant.
This annoying fellow was restraining himself out of consideration for her.
She suddenly thought what her mother had once told her.
'Honey, remember that a woman's first time is very important. When you are out, you must love yourself and not succumb to temptations.'
'Mom, it's not okay even if it's my boyfriend?'
'No, your boyfriend may one day become a stranger.'
'What if I really love him? What if he gets mad at me over this?'
'Silly girl, if he really loves and treasures you, he won't do something like that. When a man really loves you, he will treasure your body more than you ever will…'
Such a conversation popped in her head.
Looking up at the flawless man before her, she realized that his heart was as flawless as his looks.
In that moment, she felt that this man, who belonged to her and only her, really loved her.
She even thought that, as long as the other party was him, even without a wedding or marriage, she was willing to give her most precious thing.
However, before she could voice out her thoughts, he spoke first.
"Stupid woman, you don't have to worry about anything."
He put his hand on her head gently and caressed her long hair.
"En." She smiled at him and retracted what she wanted to say earlier.
If it's you, I'm willing to give my precious first thing.
Since he was willing to treasure her, she was willing to wait with him.
"Okay. Are you still mad?" He peered at the gentleness on her face.
She scoffed, feigning anger still. "Yes."
"En?" He froze a little when he heard her reply.
Immediately after, he heard her speak again.
"I realized that you've gotten cheekier lately; you actually dared to play tricks on me, so…" She blinked and arched her chin a little, a playful expression flashing across her eyes.
"So?" He raised his brow, challenging the arrogant woman.
"So I'm punishing you by making you sleep on the couch!" she said haughtily, smiling at his misfortune.
"Sleep on the couch?" He smiled a little. "I'm sorry, Miss Pei, but your boyfriend disagrees," he said, his voice low and deep.
He then lowered his head and planted his cool lips on hers.
From there, the temperature began to rise in the room as the kissing couple felt a little antsy.
In that moment, a thought of uncertainty flashed across their minds.
Could they really control themselves when tempted to sleep with the other?
This seemed to be a really serious problem!
