"How beautiful; just like a castle in a fairy tale!"
The castle was huge. Not counting the attic, there were five floors. It was unbelievably spacious.
According to her estimation, its size was roughly over 16,500 square meters. This was just a rough calculation, and it could easily be much more than that.
Lavish floral arches and beautiful wall lamps could be seen in the long corridor, and through the pristine French windows was the breathtaking scenery of the sprawling beach.
Yun Shishi stood before the floor-to-ceiling window overlooking the vast sea. The surging waves, the reflection of the sky on the sea surface, the blue sky covering the sea… Everything was utterly breathtaking.
She took a deep breath; even the air here was fresh.
This was her first time breathing in such clean air since she became a grown-up.
Suddenly, she appreciated the real side of this beautiful world.
Mu Yazhe stood behind her with his arms looping around her waist. He dipped his head to look at her gentle yet moving smile.
The softest place in the depths of his heart was attracted by this smile of hers.
"Is it beautiful?"
She raised her smiling face, her eyes reflecting the clear blue sky.
He could not help but land a peck on each of her brows.
In his heart, the most beautiful thing was her eyes mirroring the beautiful scenery outside.
Out of curiosity, she asked, "Where did you get the inspiration to bring me here?"
He simply answered, "Vacation, recuperation, away from those distractions – is it no good?"
"Vacation. What a luxurious term," she breathed, "but this is indeed a wonderful place for a retreat!"
"If you like it, then this place is yours from here on!"
"…" She was stunned. "What do you mean?"
"This island is my gift to you; do you like it?"
"I don't want."
She explained, "This is your property; it's yours and it's separate from mine. I don't want it."
"Isn't what's mine yours, too?" This was a rhetorical question. He did not give her a chance to negotiate.
"What are you saying?"
"Yun Shishi, I will give you whatever you want in this world. Anything of mine is automatically yours."
She widened her eyes in shock.
He bowed his head and softly sealed her lips with his.
With his thin lips against her tender little mouth, he smiled and breathed a domineering declaration. "In exchange, you're mine!"
He deepened the kiss thereafter.
She smiled. Her face was flushed as she pushed against his chest.
The man caught her mischievous little hands, not allowing her to resist him.
His tongue carefully traced her lips' shape with serious yet light touches. Even for just a moment, he did not want to separate from her. He was greedy for more.
He wanted to spend the rest of his life with her, through thick and thin.
Only then did he understand how wonderful it was to kiss.
The tips of their noses touching, their skin pressing against each other, and their lips sticking together ignited a desire deeply buried in his heart.
She let him kiss her however he liked. After so many rounds of practice with him, she now knew how to respond to his kisses; the little tip of her tongue lightly licked his mouth and then quickly retracted. Just like a mischievous kitten, she licked him to express her liking for him.
He enjoyed her careful response.
As such, when she moved to lick his lips again, he quickly sucked on her tongue and took the chance to pry open her lips. He invaded the cavern of her mouth and gently swept through every part of it.
The scent of orchids greeted his nostrils instantly; it was extremely aromatic.
In these past few days, he had been using the same brand of toothpaste, body wash, shampoo with her.
Thus, every scent from her was the same as his – mixed together and never separated.
