Mu Yazhe raised his wrist to look at the time, his face clearly short of patience.
She said immediately, "I'll apologize to Yun Shishi tomorrow! I'll apologize sincerely because I know that I was wrong… I only have one request: Let's go back to how we were; is that okay? What I said today, please forget about it. Let bygones be bygones, and let's not mention them again! Is that okay? Let's start over."
The man furrowed his brows; his face showed no ripples of change, but he also did not refuse her.
Song Enya was delighted, knowing that he had agreed!
Thus, she willingly opened the car door and got off. Just as she closed the door, he stepped on the gas pedal, and the car was gone like dust!
He left so determinedly!
Her heart began to ache. As she returned home, she buried her head into the couch and cried out in pain.
He was such a proud man. She had never been able to think of anyone who could clinch a special spot in his heart.
What right did Yun Shishi have to get his heart while she could not?!
She did not understand. She really did not understand. She was unwilling to understand.
She was in too deep and way beyond hope!
When he returned home, Yun Shishi was still sleeping soundly and quietly. The covers had been kicked to the side.
His face was filled with helplessness. Finally, he understood whom Little Yichen had inherited his cover-kicking habit!
He walked slowly over to the side of the bed and sat down. He raised his hand and pinched her cheek uncontrollably. The sleeping woman remained unconscious, but she could still acutely sense someone rubbing her face; thus, she waved her hand unhappily, only for it to be caught by Mu Yazhe.
He bent his head gently, giving her fingertips a few light pecks before covering her with the blanket again and heading out.
The man stood in the backyard.
The beautiful morning glow was shining down at dawn. He lit up a cigarette and gave it a huge puff. The thin wisps of smoke dissipated in the morning breeze.
Yun Shishi was woken up by her manager's phone call.
"You have an interview tomorrow with Basha Magazine. Before the interview, we need to get a group shot. That's why we are meeting at the company before noon. Don't be late!"
She had a face full of resentment.
She walked to the window and looked out, only to see the man in the backyard. She did not know when he returned home. At the moment, he was holding his phone in his hand, seemingly on a phone call.
"You're back!" she greeted.
The man turned around with his eyebrows furrowed.
He had always been very observant about minor details. That comment of hers meant she knew that he had gone out in the middle of the night.
Yun Shishi walked into the backyard and hugged him from the back. She smilingly asked, "Standing here by yourself in a daze?"
She did not mention anything about him leaving in the wee hours, seemingly having no intention to question him about it.
He was stunned and then asked, "Why are you awake so early?"
"I was awoken by Qin Zhou's call." She rubbed her eyes resentfully. "He called to inform me about an interview I have tomorrow and asked me not to be late."
"Go back to sleep."
"No," she said coquettishly. "I want to hug you."
She felt extremely calm just from hugging him.
He did not say anything else, either.
After a moment of silence, he suddenly said, "I'm going overseas tomorrow; I will be back in about half a month."
"You're going overseas again?" she subconsciously asked begrudgingly.
"My second uncle called to look for me." He turned around and rubbed her nose. "Be good; I'll try to be back as soon as I can."
"Okay." She smiled.
