Xia Xibei just wanted to wake Qiao Yanjue up and send him back to his room rather than let him sleep uncomfortably here.
But to her surprise, she was suddenly grabbed by Qiao Yanjue’s wrist and yanked into his arms.
This series of actions flustered her.
When she came back to her senses, she realized that she was being held tightly by Qiao Yanjue!
She looked up in shock, then met Qiao Yanjue’s half-asleep eyes.
Qiao Yanjue’s eyes were a little out of focus. He blinked blankly, still wondering if the situation in front of him was real or a dream.
“Let go of me!” Xia Xibei struggled in his arms.
But the next moment, the strength in Qiao Yanjue’s hands increased, once again forcing her into his arms and rubbing her on the neck, before closing his eyes and revealing an unconscious smile.
The motion made it seem as if he was caressing a doll.
Xia Xibei blushed and decisively pinched his waist.
“Ow!” Qiao Yanjue yelled, finally letting her go.
Xia Xibei broke out of his arms and stood up.
Qiao Yanjue opened his eyes and the blinding light made him squint, a bit puzzled as he asked, “What’s wrong?”
Looking at his innocent expression, the blushing Xia Xibei couldn’t get angry with him in spite of herself.
And she realized Qiao Yanjue really didn’t mean to do it!
“You were falling asleep earlier, so I wanted to wake you up.”
“I was asleep?” Qiao Yanjue sat up and shook his head, a little surprised at the sensation. “It’s really comfortable. No wonder I slept through it.”
“Comfortable is good.” Xia Xibei’s expression was subtle as she huffed and said, “Then go back to your place and rest. I have to go back and rest too.”
“Good.” Qiao Yanjue didn’t hold her back. “It’s late, you should go back and rest. Good night.”
“Ok. Good night.”
Qiao Yanjue saw Xia Xibei out and closed the door before his previously innocent expression began to change.
When he pulled Xia Xibei into his arms, it really was not on purpose; he did not want to take advantage of her like that.
In fact, it took him a little while to fully wake-up when he slept, so when he was woken up just now, he was still a little disoriented and confused, simply pulling Xia Xibei over.
He really thought he was dreaming! What didn’t he dare to do in a dream?
He came to his senses afterwards, when he was pinched by Xia Xibei.
But after waking up, he found the scene very awkward.
If he admitted what he had just done, the two of them would have been even more embarrassed!
Yesterday’s incident was not completely over, and if it happened again today, Xia Xibei would stay far, far away from him, right?
He didn’t want to fail before he began, rejected and pushed away.
So he made a quick decision and pretended that he didn’t know anything, muddling through it.
Luckily, he was a good actor and Xia Xibei didn’t suspect him.
Qiao Yanjue patted himself on the head, telling himself to stop being stupid next time.
Xia Xibei was still young. He couldn’t be a monster!
Meanwhile, back at home, Xia Xibei didn’t think too much into it.
She knew that Qiao Yanjue must have been dreaming, to do such a thing. Otherwise, there was no need for him to act in such a way.
This situation was a bit awkward, but since one party was unaware of it, there was no need for the other party to hold a grudge.
As a result, Xia Xibei quickly put these matters aside.
After taking a shower, she turned on her computer and logged into Penguin, a message soon popping up.
