Once he ascended as the head of the Mu family.
Once he wielded the highest power in the Mu family.
Once he eradicated those enemies in the Mu's extended family.
Once that day came, he would declare to the world that Yun Shishi was his woman!
This was his promise to her.
Did he mean… that he would give her a home?
She suddenly had a lump in her throat.
She thought that happiness was something out of her reach. Although having a complete family was normal for others, it was something so far off to her.
Right now, this man was telling her that she would one day be his woman.
His legitimate woman.
Was this what he meant?
"Would that day come?" She was somehow in disbelief.
Feeling rather infuriated, he countered, "Woman, are you doubting me?"
She stared at him blankly. Her face was devoid of any emotion in that moment.
A needle seemed to have pierced through his heart as he looked at her.
"Mu Yazhe, answer me; do you love me?"
She fixed her gaze on to his face as she popped this question to him.
He was suddenly out of words.
He was a bit unclear on how he should define 'love'. He had never been in a relationship before, and Yun Shishi, in whichever form, was his only woman ever.
He was all along arrogant and carefree; he was akin to the wind in that he disliked being restrained.
However, ever since this woman entered his world, everything seemed to have lost their order.
He was also getting used to having her warmth in his bed.
He was a little uncomfortable without her.
He had such a strong possessive streak over her; he disliked other men looking at her and touching her. She could only be his.
He would miss her like crazy when she was not around.
He would miss her eyes, he would miss her tightly knitted brows, he would miss her coquettish protests, and he would miss her shy, budding look underneath him.
He longed to gaze at her peaceful countenance when she was fast asleep while snuggling on his bent elbow.
If this meant that he loved her, then he would admit that he was in love.
He was simply embarrassed to say that statement aloud.
Thus, he answered her by dipping his head and planting a gentle kiss on her lips.
This kiss was void of any of his previous storms; the man just lightly pecked at her lips, just like a dragonfly skimming the surface of the water.
Treating her like the most precious treasure in the world, he carefully held her in his arms.
Gingerly, she reciprocated his kiss and latched hers on to his shoulders. He was very satisfied at her slightly clumsy yet aggressive response. He tightened his grip on her and deepened the kiss.
The two, who were caught up with their intimacies, were unaware of a lean figure standing by a window behind them.
Yun Tianyou stood sideways before the window in his pajamas. With his hand raising a corner of the curtain and him peeking out, he witnessed that amorous scene fully. Mixed feelings appeared on his handsome and youthful face.
He might be young and inexperienced about the affairs of love between adults, but he could sense that his dumb mommy was in love.
He could feel the love his mommy had for that man.
A sudden streak of loneliness fleeted across his eyes, and following that, a corner of his lips lightly pulled up.
He clenched his hands into fists and gently hammered his slightly aching chest with them.
If one day his mommy told him that she was in love with the man, he would accept the man as his father without hesitation!
However, this did not mean that he would sit idly by if this man ever bullied his mommy!
