It was already sunrise when Chi Xiuyuan woke up, but it was a Saturday, so he didn’t have to go to class or work.
The weather had warmed up and the blanket was warm.
He opened his eyes in a daze, and the world was hazy and unclear.
He moved his hand, but his body froze. A memory came to him, and his hazy spirit suddenly cleared up. He looked down sharply as if a spark had been lit in his eyes.
He Shuyu was now half lying in his arms, perhaps restless from sleep. The blanket slid slightly down to reveal her round white shoulders and the faintest hint of pink.
The memory of last night played on a loop in his head. Her shallow whispers and the way she leaned into his ear and whispered lovingly, defiantly even.
Chi Xiuyuan’s body heated up, and his ears were red to the point of dripping blood.
He wanted to move, but He Shuyu was leaning against him softly, like a piece of cotton candy. He was afraid that he might wake her up if he wasn’t careful.

The young man in the mirror had scratches all over his shoulders, light and slightly pink. It was just as prickly and fascinating as the woman who scratched them out.
Chi Xiuyuan exhaled heavily, forcing himself to pull his memory out of last night’s situation. He lowered his head to see a certain spot and couldn’t help but reprimand, “Can you be honest?”
After he finished speaking, his ears were reddened by his own words.
A hazy mist rose in the bathroom as He Shuyu listened to the small sound of water and opened her drowsy eyes.
Glancing at the bathroom through the frosted glass, she laughed softly and buried her head in the pillow, breathing a lazy sigh of relief.
After a moment, she lifted her head. She tugged at the loose white shirt she was wearing, got off the bed barefoot, and headed for the bathroom.
She leaned against the door for a moment, listening to the sound of water, or to be precise, the sound of suppressed gasps underneath it.
There was a loud clatter, and the door of the bathroom was suddenly pulled open.
Chi Xiuyuan was startled, and his hands shook uncontrollably.
He hadn’t expected He Shuyu to wake up and suddenly pull open the bathroom door, so he stood dumbfounded. Before he could react, he saw the woman who had suddenly entered, arrogantly walking into the water screen, allowing the warm water to wet her shirt.
It was only when He Shuyu’s arms were wrapped around his waist and her soft body leaned over that he foolishly realised what was happening and immediately reached out to cover himself up.
He Shuyu couldn’t stand such a cute reaction from him and laughed out loud.
He withdrew his hand in a disguised manner, but the next moment he stiffened.
He turned his head sideways in disbelief, but the woman who had made mischief pressed the side of her face against his back and exhaled three words softly.
It was like fireworks exploding in Chi Xiuyuan’s ears. He heaved a breath, coming back to his senses. He was already sitting at the table, fully clothed, watching He Shuyu drink her porridge.
It was almost eleven o’clock and it was fine to eat lunch straight away, but He Shuyu said she wanted to eat the congee he had cooked.
“Still awkward?” He Shuyu asked with a soft smile.
The kid, who had just started eating meat, only knew how to rampage. He tried to be as gentle as possible, but she still couldn’t bear it.
After coming out of the bathroom, he didn’t dare raise his eyes to look at her, and she didn’t know what he was squirming about.
Well… it couldn’t be that she was scaring him, could it?
He was so hot that he sniffed and said dryly, “No…… I’m not awkward.”
“Then why don’t you dare to look at me? Have I become ugly? I’m not good looking anymore? You don’t want to look at me anymore? ” A series of questions asked had Chi Xiuyuan’s eyelids jumping.
He shook his head without hesitation, wanting to say something but feeling that nothing he could say would be enough. Suddenly, he thought of the girlfriend chasing routine Fang Qiao used to mutter in his ear.
He wheedled his way to his feet and sat beside her under He Shuyu’s curious gaze. He gently wrapped his arm around her waist and kissed the side of her face.
“There will be no squirming…… is…… is…… is…….”
He was in love for the first time, and he was not good at expressing himself. He was all but at a loss for how to describe his feelings.
After doing these small actions, Chi Xiuyuan’s ears were red at the root. He Shuyu pursed her lips and smiled, turning away from the food and dropping a kiss heavily on his lips.
“Chi Chi, can you be more generous? Well, kiss here if you want to, and a little harder. Otherwise, how do I know if you like it or not?”
Chi Xiuyuan’s hand was heavier, and his eyes glowed a little.
Before He Shuyu could react, she was heavily kissed by him. The kiss was still not very technical, but it was much better than before.
After a while, Chi Xiuyuan spontaneously retreated to the side again.
He sat on the sofa with the pillow He Shuyu had just carried out, curled up into a shrimp shape. When the latter tried to lean over, he hurriedly said, “Don’t mess with me, or you won’t be able to go out this afternoon!”
He Shuyu’s gaze shifted downward, wanting to tease him again, but she really couldn’t bear it. He put away his messy thoughts and found a comfortable position to sit on the sofa.
“When are you coming home with me?”
She had mentioned before that Chi Xiuyuan should move in with her, but unfortunately, her little boyfriend was a little turtle and refused to say anything. Otherwise, she wouldn’t have taken the bottom out of the barrel and eaten him clean first.
Chi Xiuyuan saw that she was not too comfortable, so he hurriedly put a pillow behind her waist. Then, he reached out to rub the side of her waist carefully, hearing this with some hesitation.
He Shu Yu looked at him askance: “You’ve already eaten and you still want to renege on your debt?”
Her words were always blunt, and the thin-skinned Chi Xiuyuan was obviously a bit overwhelmed. His hand movements slowed down, but he whispered, “This month’s rent is almost due…..”
He Shuyu heard his words. She wrapped her arms around his shoulders and lay down on his chest, “Then it’s a deal. Pack your things and move to my place in the next two days.”
Chi Xiuyuan nodded as he wrapped his arms around her.
He had the self-awareness to know that he would not be able to acquire the wealth that He Shuyu currently possessed in a short period of time, perhaps in his lifetime.
But since he had chosen to like He Shuyu and had established a relationship with her, he would not let the other party follow him and suffer because of his so-called pride.
He held the person a little tighter and whispered, “I will study hard in the future.” He would try to be able to support her someday in the future.
After the two of them had spent some time together, He Shuyu went back to bed to catch up on her sleep and woke up at around 6 pm.
When she woke up, Chi Xiuyuan was sitting in the living room reading a book. The mid-term exams were next week, and he had been studying hard for a while.
Noticing someone approaching behind her, Chi Xiuyuan caught He Shuyu’s hand that was trying to make a scene, “Feeling better?”
Compared to this morning, he was obviously more relaxed now. She didn’t know what kind of thinking he had done for himself during the time she was sleeping.
He Shuyu nodded half-lying on his shoulder before noticing that there was an extra suitcase in the living room and the house was all clearly organised.
“Only this much stuff?” He Shuyu frowned slightly.
Chi Xiuyuan pulled her to sit on his lap and said, “There were only a few changes of clothes. The rest was rented to me by Uncle Ji along with Wu Zi. I’ll come back and clean the house before returning the rent.”
He Shuyu nodded and put her arm around his shoulder and said, “How about going shopping with me tomorrow? I haven’t bought any clothes for a long time.”
How could Chi Xiuyuan disagree? The two of them had rarely spent any time alone together, except for meals.
There were no ingredients at his home, so He Shuyu simply led her little boyfriend home to cook, just as his luggage was almost packed.
The two of them walked out of the room hand in hand and met Uncle Ji, who had returned, at the staircase. There was also a young, tall woman standing beside him. The other party wore a knee-length dress with her hair tied in a ponytail. She was talking to Uncle Ji with a smile.
Chi Xiuyuan had never seen this woman before, but he had heard that Uncle Ji had a daughter who had gone abroad to study, so he expected that the other woman might be Uncle Ji’s daughter.
Out of courtesy, he smiled and called out to Uncle Ji, who turned his head at the sound of his voice, but the smile on his face suddenly froze.
Chi Xiuyuan was somewhat unsure, but found that his gaze fell on He Shuyu, who was beside him.
He Shuyu had always been elegant and gentle, but now there was an extra wave of indifference in her eyes.
“I’m hungry. Shall we go home?” She looked at him sideways, the emotion in her eyes disappearing again.
However, Chi Xiuyuan could clearly sense that she was unhappy, a bit like the time when He Jinshu had suddenly arrived at He Shuyu’s house.
He intuited that He Shuyu and Uncle Ji knew each other. One was a helpful elder and the other was his girlfriend, and before he knew what the beef was, he didn’t speak up. He wrapped his arms around He Shuyu’s waist and bowed his head in response.
He politely bid farewell to Uncle Ji, who was obviously a little distracted but kept his gaze on He Shuyu.
After walking out a few steps, the woman’s clear voice suddenly interjected, “Sister Shuyu, when you see dad, don’t you say hello to him?”
In that instant, Chi Xiuyuan could clearly feel the irritation and indifference spreading out from He Shuyu’s body.
