Chapter 2035: Helpless
Therefore, she feigned sleep to avoid an awkward situation.
Mu Yazhe turned away and walked into the bathroom. Hearing the flowing water, she presumed that he was taking a bath.
After bathing, he changed into his pajamas and got onto the bed gently.
The man’s tall and lean body gave her a huge sense of security.
Even though he had not touched her, Yun Shishi could still feel his broad chest behind her.
She closed her eyes, afraid to open them, and pretended to have fallen asleep with her stable breathing.
He seemed not to be aware of her conscious state. Thinking that she had fallen asleep, his movements were careful as if he feared waking her up.
Just as she thought that they would spend the night being apart from each other, the man suddenly pressed himself close to her.
His body was scalding hot.
It was hotter than normal.
Although they were separated by their coral-fleece pajamas, she could still feel the hot temperature of his skin.
Why was he so hot?
The woman was palpitating with fear, yet she could feel his gentle movements. The man held the back of her neck softly and stuck out his arm to cushion her neck before carefully and gently pulling her into his embrace. He circled his other arm around her waist, locking her in his arms.
She was so nervous that her entire body turned rigid, afraid to even make the slightest movement.
The man seemed to sense that her body had stiffened. Somewhat flabbergasted, he assumed that she had been frozen cold.
The weather at night was freezing. Even with the heater turned on in the room, she would still fall sick easily as her body was weak. He knew that about her. The moment her workload was heavier, her body would be unable to bear the burden, and she would fall sick if not taken good care of.
He hugged her closer as he tried to use his body heat to warm her up.
Yun Shishi kept her eyes closed, afraid to move, but she was still slightly angry with him, so she was unwilling to let him hug her in their sleep. She intentionally twisted her body, pretending to move in her sleep, and shifted toward the empty side of the bed.
Mu Yazhe’s lips curled helplessly before hugging her waist, not allowing her to move.
After tossing and turning for a while, the man finally sensed that something was amiss. This woman in his arms was not asleep at all! She was still awake and was just pretending to be asleep to deal with him.
He could tell that she was still furious. Despite intentionally trying to get close to her and curry favor with her, she did not seem to take the bait. She tried to escape to the other side of the bed, wishing to be far away from him.
Was she trying to display her anger on him?!
In the darkness, the man’s black, jade-like eyes narrowed as he stared fixedly at the woman before him, feigning tranquility. He could understand this lassie’s difficult mood, yet he did not know what to do.
She was the only woman he had no idea how to deal with.
After being silent for a long time, he finally opened his mouth and spoke.
The woman refused to speak and ignored him.
She was still angry, but it was no good to vent her unhappiness on him. Therefore, she could only keep it in, shrivel it up, and tolerate it alone. This was the only way she could accuse him silently.
Despite seeing that she was ignoring him, the man did not feel angry. He lowered his head and gave her a gentle kiss on the forehead, but the woman unexpectedly turned her face away and avoided him silently.
It was an intentional sidestep.
He fell silent again.
