Xiao You wakes up lying on her side, in the comfy bed that seems to be in a hotel room’s bed, a pair of hands warmly wrapped around her waist.
That is when she realized that last night she has moved to Xi Men’s room. Once she lied down on the bed, Xi Men gave a kiss goodnight on her forehead. He didn’t do anything indecent to her. He lived up to his words that he only wanted her to occupy the bed; the portion next to him. And he hugs her.
That’s about it.
Xiao You smiled, knowing that Xi Men is indeed a person she can trust.
She took a deep breath, she did not move, as the pair of hands still warmly wrapped around her. She thinks of everything at that point of time.
Xiao You turned slightly, but he is at her back.
“Awake already?” he hugged her tighter.
“Yeah,” Xiao You said. “How do you know?”
“Cause u move a lot,” Xi Men said.
“I didn’t move,” Xiao You said.
“You didn’t make huge movements, you just move enough to let me know that you are awake,” he placed his head next to her neck.
Xiao You smiled.
“Good morning,” Xi Men said.
“Good morning,” Xiao You said. “Did I wake you up?”
“Not really. It’s about time for me to wake up anyway,” Xi Men said. “And I will have to adapt to sleeping with you, you know,”
Xiao You smiled again. “Is your intention to asking me sleeping with you is to actually SLEEP with you, in terms of… you know, sex?”
Xi Men opened his eyes. “I don’t want sex with you,”
Xiao You’s eyes strayed slightly, what kind of guy does not want sex?!
“I will only make love with you,” Xi Men said. “Because I only want loving sessions rather than one night stands,”
“I thought you did,” Xiao You said.
“But this one night stand is with some butterfly feelings in my tummy. Only with Miss XYZ,” he hugs her still. “Miss XYZ is you, no wonder I have so…” he stopped.
“What is it?”
“Err. I mean, no wonder I have so deep feelings for you when you are Miss XYZ, because you are Xiao You. You know, I want to ask, why are you putting me thru 15 minutes of hell?” he uses his elbow to raise himself up and looked at Xiao You.
“What 15 minutes of hell?” she asked.
“You danced with the phantom for 15 minutes,”
“Oh,” she said, doesn’t even require her effort to think about it at all. “You mean I can’t dance with someone else?”
“I mean… you know, you rejected me and…”
“Xi Men,” Xiao You turned and looked at Xi Men. “At the annual dinner, nobody knows it’s me besides Lei and Jing because they are the one that invites me to the dinner. The most impressive thing is Mei Zhuo recognizes everyone but me. I did not even intend to go, it’s Lei and Jing. And Lei was trying to give me the probability that I will not bump onto you. And so it did happen. When I know you are coming, I leave. And you come after me. I can’t run,”
“You mean you know it’s me already at that point of time?” Xi Men asked.
“When you walk over, I already know it is you, I just recognize you,” Xiao You said. “No doubt,”
“Then why do you want to dance with Phantom who obviously snatched you from me?”
“I have yet to mention about you being too damn overprotective when he ask me and you just humiliate me by saying ‘SHE HAS AGREED!’. Thank goodness I have my mask with me!” Xiao You said.
Xi Men looked at her, he quiets. And then he lied down on the bed.
“Okay, I am sorry about that,” Xi Men said. “It’s just some weird feelings I have towards you so I… I just feel like… guarding you,”
Xiao You took a deep breath. “I danced with Phantom to irritate you and to make you jealous because I know you are overprotective about me,”
“WHAT?!” Xi Men said.
“Besides, I am single,” she smirked at him. “So I can just dance with anyone. I do not hold any obligations to you,”
“Now you do,” Xi Men said, and he hugs her again “So you cannot do that to me anymore,”
Xiao You laughed. “Hey, what time is it? I need to go to work already,”
Xi Men turned to the alarm clock on the side table. “7.30am, still very early,”
“Ah? That early, urgh…” Xiao You groaned.
“I’ll get up and prepare you breakfast,” Xi Men smiled.
“Hm?” Xi Men asked.
“If we are married… will you still cook me breakfast after marriage?” Xiao You asked.
Xi Men smiled. “Of course I will,” he leaned over and kissed her forehead. “You are my precious. You will forever be my precious. Only you get the chance to eat the breakfast I cook for you,”
Xiao You smiled. “Do you think we’ll have these kinds of conversations next time?”
“Mocking, sabotage… lovey-dovey?”
“Of course we do, Xiao You. We will, this I promise you,” Xi Men smiled, kissing her forehead again.
Xiao You smiled, and then the smile slowly fades. “I’m sorry,” she said.
“It’s already a month and I still cannot let it go,”
Xi Men looked at her, “You mean the baby?”
She nodded as she bites her lower lip.
Xi Men smiled as he hugged her. “Dear, we will never be able to forget about the baby. Have you thought… if not for the baby, we will not be together? Because all of the fainting, discovery of Miss XYZ, all the truth behind the hatreds you had on me… will never happen?”
“Xiao You, with and without the baby, I will still love you. I honor you more for the sacrifices you had and done for me. I will never forget all those that you’ve done, that you’ve gone thru. And now, all you have to know is that I will always love you, I will always cherish you and I will always be with you. Whatever it takes. And also…”
“It is proven that I am fertile,” he laughed.
“HEY!!!” she repeatedly tries to slap his arm and chest.
He remained laughing as he held her hand and then puts them to his heart. “I love you baby,”
“I love you too,” she smiled.
He leaned closer and tried to kiss her. She then pushed him. He looked at her, wondering why she pushes him.
“I have yet to brush teeth, and so do you!” she covered her mouth.
Xi Men laughed. “Okay, I’ll kiss you on the cheek,”
“That’s more like it,” she said as he kissed her cheek.
“Now, don’t worry about baby. We can make another one,” he laughed, which she almost going to slap his chest again, “After we are married and when we are ready,”
She smiled. “Okay,”
“So, I’ll get up and prepare you breakfast… okay?”
“Xi Men, wait up,”
“What is it?” he asked.
“You have never been mad at me?”
“Of course not,”
She smiled. “And…”
“You never questioned me about making love,”
“Dr. Wang said 2 weeks right?”
Xi Men’s face immediately went red. “Err…”
“I’m done with bleeding,”
“Is that an invitation?”
“No, that is just a statement,” she smirked.
“What are you hinting, Xiao You?” he asked.
“What will you say if… I decide to wait until we are married?”
He smiled. “I will respect you,”
“Yes. I will not force you, and in fact, for this matter, I will not ask you, until you told me you are ready,”
“Will you propose to me earlier just because I said I will reserve until marriage?”
Xi Men laughed. “No, I honestly believe that proposal will be done when it’s time,” he said. “It has nothing to do with sleeping with you or not. I am happy enough that you are willing to move in to my room,”
She smiled. “Okay, that’s what I want to hear,”
“I’ll make you breakfast, okay?” Xi Men asked.
“Okay,” she said.
He gave her a kiss before he rose to his feet and walked to the bathroom. And then Xiao You quietly laughs when she saw him keep slapping his own forehead which he thought she didn’t see.
“Breakfast is done!” Xi Men yelled.
“Can you serve breakfast in bed?!” Xiao You yelled from his room.
Xi Men stunned. “Breakfast in bed?!” he mumbled. “WHAT?!” he replied to her.
“Yes, breakfast in bed!”
“Why are you so lazy from waking up from the bed?!” he asked, as he look for a tray in his cabinets.
“I’m just a lazy bum,” she said.
“Urgh…” he said. “I’m going to spoil this lady bad,” he placed the tray and then put the food on the tray. And then he carries the tray into the room. “LAZY BUM!” he said.
Xiao You laughed. “Thank you baby,” she said as she sits on the bed.
“You are so lazy!” he said. “You don’t even want to walk to the living room,”
“But you still care for me, right?” she make a cute face that is enough to melt his heart.
“I am so going to spoil you bad,” he said.
“Hmm… hams and eggs, I like it,” she smiled, looking at the breakfast.
“Yeah, yeah. Now you better eat it before it is cold,” he said.
“Do you think having breakfast or intercourse is better?” she said, real quick.
“Of course inter…” he stopped. He then looked at her. “What?”
She smiled. “Nothing. Do you want some… gratitude?”
“For bringing you breakfast in bed?” Xi Men asked, and then blinked a few times, gently shakes his head. “Now, don’t change the topic, I heard something just now,”
“I didn’t say anything,” she said. She smirked at him.
He glared at her. “I heard you said INTERCOURSE!”
“I think you have been thinking too much of that,” Xiao You said.
He then shook. “Sigh…”
“I’ll be fine with having you before breakfast,” Xiao You said, she smirked again.
He looked at her again, “Now don’t mess with me, I really heard you!” he rushed forward and took the tray of breakfast and placed it at the side table.
“But the breakfast is going to get cold,” she said.
“I can reheat it for you,” he winked. “So, me first? I’ll have you before breakfast,” he sits in front of her so close she can feel his breath.
“But…” he said.
“Are you… sure?”
“Only with protection,”
“A smart guy always prepare!” he said, rushed to the drawer and took one out.
“My gosh, you are prepared for this?” she asked.
“I learnt my lesson. So… are you sure? You are ready?”
She smiled and nodded. “I have actually been waiting for signs from you. You never said anything,”
“I only wanted to respect you… so I did not dare to bring it up, so I wait for you…” he then scratched his head. “I wait for you… and you wait for me,” he laughed.
“I am actually very glad with the way you think, that you don’t rush me… and you give me ample space and time,”
“That is how much I love and respect you, Xiao You,” he said.
“So… are you ready? I cannot wait to make love with you, really…”
She laughed and nodded.
