764 The Official Cohabitation of a Wedded Couple!
The night was fated to be a sleepless one.
Of course, this was limited to a certain pitiful great CEO, who was doing his best to control himself.
In the night sky, the moon's faint glow seeped in through a certain floor's bedroom windows…
This light illuminated the surfaces of objects in the room in dazzling, silvery white glow.
Under this faint illumination, a man dipped his head to look at a woman fast asleep in his arms. His lips split open into a helpless smile.
Feeling the torturous heat from his lower half, his smile became even more helpless.
Is this considered as shooting myself in the foot?
His hand softly caressed her fair face. The soft feeling was akin to a newborn's skin, making one fall in love with a touch.
"Really a heartless and stupid woman…"
He softly muttered in an aggrieved tone from being unable to fulfill his desires. If anyone were to hear what he had just said, they would definitely laugh at him!
This dumb woman actually fell asleep, and it was fast to boot! The moment I switched off the light, she wordlessly shut her eyes and drifted into sleep. I don't even know whether I should laugh or cry.
Is she so trusting of me, or doesn't she see me as a man at all?
Perhaps… she's still mad at me, so she avoided talking to me by going to sleep…
The great CEO, who had never felt this conflicted before, was feeling very conflicted right now. All he could think of was her.
Hence, on this night, the great CEO, who had seldom suffered from insomnia… suffered insomnia!
Only when it was almost dawn did he fall into a light sleep while hugging the woman in his arms…
The next morning, Pei Ge was roused from her sleep by the glaring sunlight on her face.
She opened her eyes and yawned, searching for her phone by habit.
She did not find her phone, though. Instead, she felt something soft yet stiff in her hand.
Her drowsiness fled at once.
She recalled that she had gone to sleep with the man in her bed last night and that she had almost done it with him!
A pity that this annoying fellow didn't make a move on me! We're clearly in the same bed, yet we literally only went to sleep!
From the sturdy chest, her eyes trailed upward.
The man's chiseled chin came into view, followed by his high nose bridge and… clear orbs.
His eyes were like the inky-black night sky with a sprinkling of stars. Looking into his eyes, she felt as if she could lose herself in them.
A low yet clear voice sounded in her ears. It was filled with ineffable gentleness and love.
The voice roused her from her reverie.
However, before she could greet him in return, his actions startled her.
He dipped his head and gently placed a good-morning kiss on her head.
"Why are you up so early? Go get some more sleep."
She blinked at him. Staring at the face that was a hair's breadth from ears, she could only hear her little heart pound like crazy.
Repressing the fluttering of her heart, she smiled at the man hugging her tightly without any hint of releasing her.
"Then, let's get up."
He lightly nodded as her smile melted his heart into a puddle of water.
She burst out laughing at his words, though.
"Yes, it's about time for us to get up, but before that, shouldn't you release me first? How am I supposed to get up when you're hugging me so tightly?"
She reminded him with a grin.
However, when she said this, he gave her an unexpected response.c
Raising a brow at the woman smiling like a wily fox, instead of releasing her, he only tightened his hold around her waist.
"You can still get up even if I hug you like this." His lips curled at the corners as his cheeky expression made one's heart itch.
As she was still feeling lost, he used his hands to hug her to his chest and got down from the bed.
Shocked by being lifted in the air, she shrieked and tightly clung onto his neck on reflex.
This action only caused the man's smile to broaden.
He easily carried her off the bed and stood steadily on the ground.
He secured her in his chest and lowered his head to whisper to her ears.
Shocked by his action, she felt totally speechless.
"You're so childish!" She commented while shaking her head at the man who was a head taller than her.
Why do I find him to be more and more different with every passing day that we are together?
If he was arrogant, cold, and handsome like a celestial being before, then he is now a celestial being who has descended into the mortal realm!
He is becoming more alive and… more childlike lately!
Still, he only shows this side of him in front of me!
As she thought of all these, happiness bubbled in her heart.
"Okay, okay! Let's quickly wash up! I'll go make breakfast. There are a few things I need to do in the company today."
She put her arms on his chest and pushed away the man tightly hugging her.
His lips curled up again, clearly in a good mood.
The two were like a young couple – the husband went to wash up, while the wife went to make breakfast in the kitchen. A fulfilling morning started just like that.
