At this age, Xian Bei was still very afraid of having physical contact with people. When she let the man wrap his arms around her into an embrace, his warm chest pressed on her back and her heart was at peace. The tears that could not be stopped slowly did. It was as if everything fell into place.
The living room was so quiet that the swinging from the pendulum clock on the wall could be heard.
His chin was on top of her head. The sound of his breathing was so close that Xian Bei blushed when she became aware of it.
Did he accept her confession?
Her arms hanging on the side of her body started feeling uncomfortable.
Chen Zhuo sensed the changes in her body and knew that the little girl was nervous. However, he didn’t let go of her. Instead, his arms used more strength to hug her more firmly.
The man’s movements and strength came so quickly that Xian Bei could not help but whimper.
Chen Zhuo thought he had pinched her and immediately let her go.
When he released her, the weak little girl in his arms suddenly used all of her strength to sprint back to her room and closed the door with a bang.
From the beginning to the end, she didn’t look back and her eyes kept looking straight ahead.
In the living room, Chen Zhuo was the only one there. A tall man all alone.
Chen Zhuo stood where he was and looked at the closed door. His lips couldn’t help but curl up.
Xian Bei supported herself against the door as she hunched over and gasped for air.
After a while, she slid to the floor, looked at her hands and buried her face into them.
Her face was already very hot. But in the end, her hands were even hotter like firewood was added to the fire.
She didn’t run away on purpose……
All right, she did run away. There’s nothing she could do about it……if she stayed with that person for one more second……
Her heart was beating to death because of his responses and his series of actions that she could not even think of even in her dreams.
Over the past decade, if Xian Bei could receive kindness from others to reciprocate her kindness, then it was wishful thinking and even harder than reaching the sky in her point of view.
If the person you liked also liked you, was there anything more fulfilling than this?
Especially… a person like her. No matter how much effort she could put in, she couldn’t figure it out.
She was really afraid that she would suddenly have a heart attack and faint in front of him.
However, she was so happy……A kind of sorrowful and tearful happiness.
Her fingers covered the area around her eyes and it became warmer. All of a sudden, there was gentle knocking on the door behind her.
Xian Bei turned her head around in surprise. There was a voice coming from the other side. The gentle words were her name. Only this time, it was a little different. It was more intimate and included a lovely prefix:
“Xiao Xian Bei.”
When Chen Zhuo spoke, he had never deliberately concealed the smile between his words. “Good night.”
His natural intimacy could always make the little flowers in her heart bloom in clusters.
Xian Bei also tried to say good night, but she had just used too much energy. She opened her mouth several times, and found that she had returned to the state of being a breathless coward.
Opening her mouth to speak had once again become the biggest problem of the century.
Xian Bei felt embarrassed, but then she glanced at the cell phone on the desk.
She ran all the way to the cell phone, grabbed it, and ran back to the door. Xian Bei typed “good night” very quickly.
Just a “Good night”?
Is it too plain?
She bit her finger. Then, Xian Bei added an emoji, “Good night >▽<” and sent it.
I’m smiling, too. Just like you. I hope you know.
There was a text message alert outside of the door.
Xian Bei thought, oh, he’s still here!
Xian Bei secretly and quietly put her ear on the door to listen, but the soundproofing was perhaps too good. No matter how many times she held her breath, she did not detect any movements.
After a while, her cell phone received a notification.
Xian Bei hurried to open it and saw: “Go to sleep early.”
How could she sleep? Xian Bei scratched her head. She guiltily and obediently responded “okay” to him.
That notification bell could still be heard out there which meant that he still had not left yet.
Xian Bei felt that this was too much for her and there was also the matter of leaving him alone after the confession. But……at least tonight, she really couldn’t face him anymore.
When Xian Bei thought about the confession, she suddenly realized that she……didn’t seem to have completely said the sentence “I like you”……
And it’s not fair that he’s already done so much.
Xian Bei opened her text messages again. Each letter was running through her head like the wind. Even if it was not said out loud, that sincerity was melted into the words like there was a magma level temperature that could bake her.
She was afraid that the man would be waiting too long outside of the door. After Xian Bei finished typing, she quickly sent it without checking it again.
In fact, Chen Zhuo was already walking to his bedroom. But the second his cell phone vibrated, he stopped and clicked it open to take a look.
“I like you…..I didn’t finish saying it just now, sorry, sorry.【Bang bang kowtow】”
After he finished reading the text message, the man was overflowing with laughter. In the end, he took a deep breath and had an afterthought.
He had let go of her too soon. He should have hugged her longer and tighter in order to live up to this baby chick’s cuteness index.
