Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations

He pinched An Xiaxia’s nose. “Dummy, go back to your own room!”

“Hm…” An Xiaxia wailed and opened her watery black eyes. She sounded very drunk. “I want to sleep…”

Sheng Yize looked alarmed. He bent down, sniffed, and frowned. “Have you been drinking?”

An Xiaxia giggled at him. Probably because the drink was stronger this time, she didn’t have a drunken episode, but only closed her eyes and fell asleep.

Sheng Yize sighed. He fetched a hot towel from the bathroom to wipe An Xiaxia clean, then lay down next to her.

Despite the urge he felt, he didn’t want to take advantage of her. He only held An Xiaxia in his arms and fell asleep with her.

An Xiaxia finally sobered up in the middle of the night.

She felt a pair of warm hands on her waist and could smell the person’s refreshing scent, which made her tense up right away.

It couldn’t be that man, could it?

She kicked the person, holding nothing back.

Thump —

Caught off-guard, Sheng Yize was kicked out of bed.

With a click, the light was switched on and Sheng Yize said through gritted teeth, “What do you think you’re doing?”

An Xiaxia calmed down at the sight of him. However, she then recalled where she was and glared at him. “Why are you here?”

Sheng Yize stretched. “I’m traveling. Got a problem with that?”

“You… you followed me here, didn’t you?!” An Xiaxia glowered.

“Do you own this route? How was I following you?” Sheng Yize snorted like a tsundere. “Well, since you’re awake, go back to your own room! You’re not taking advantage of me!”

An Xiaxia blushed. Could this guy be any more explicit?

She then checked herself. She still had all her clothes on and everything seemed to be where they should be. Still a little shaken, she patted her chest.

Sheng Yize darted her a glance before quickly looking away.

“Aren’t you going to leave?”

“I am. Of course I am.” An Xiaxia bit her lip and her eyes darted around.

Actually… she was a little scared.

What if that amorous-eyed guy was a pervert? She had the room all to herself, what if in the middle of the night…

She was probably paranoid… An Xiaxia was still troubled by the thought when an idea struck her suddenly. “Sheng Yize, let’s go light some sky lanterns 1 !”

“Now?” Sheng Yize was surprised.

“Yup. I’m offering you a chance to make it up to me.” An Xiaxia pouted. “I’m still not over the fact that you tricked me into marrying you!”

Sheng Yize gave her a suspicious look, then recalled that he had traveled all the way here just to bring An Xiaxia home.

“Alright,” he agreed promptly.

There were sky lanterns sold at the guesthouse. They bought a few and took them to a creek in the small town.

An Xiaxia drew on the lantern with a marker. Seeing that Sheng Yize was still standing there, she gave him a nudge. “Why aren’t you writing anything?”

He had stopped playing with such childish things since he was three or four years old.

However, seeing that An Xiaxia was in a great mood, he picked up a marker and scrawled down a line.

The candles were then lit and they set out the lanterns.

One, two… all the lanterns rose into the air. After the last one was up, An Xiaxia hopped around and finally saw what he had written.

The bright lanterns slowly ascended, lighting up a small area of the sky.

His handwriting looked elegant in the black ink.

“I wish for the one beside me to have all her dreams come true.”

The one beside him… he was talking about her…

An Xiaxia’s cheeks slowly turned red.
