As Liu Duo lay in bed, Ye Liu blew out the lamp. He huddled up to Liu Duo and wrapped the quilt around them.
Liu Duo barked at him, squirming: “What’re you wrapping me up with you for? Get your own quilt!”
“Stay still, Xiao Duo,” he chuckled. “The quilt’s not helping much. We need to get close to keep warm.”
“What nonsense, get on your side and use your own quilt,” she said with beet red cheeks.
It was her first time being held by a man, not to mention in bed and shirtless. She could feel the warmth coming off him through her nightie.
“Come now, Xiao Duo! You can’t tell me you’re not warm now.”
“You… Just let go.” Scoundrels don’t easily take no for an answer, and he wasn’t going overboard at least.
“No can do. I need to hold on to something to fall asleep.”
Are you telling me you used to wrap up with your brothers, then? Liu Duo rolled her eyes.
“…” Seeing that there was little chance to win, she forced her eyes shut and tried to focus on counting sheep in hopes she’d fall asleep.
With Liu Duo settling down in defeat, Ye Liu chuckled to himself and closed his eyes.
However, for a 23 year old bachelor to suddenly be holding a soft, jade-like body in his arms, sleep suddenly wasn’t quite so easy to achieve. The fragrance wafting off her assaulted his nose and brain, leaving him laying there hot and bothered.
He often worked in town and was no stranger to advances from women. Compared to his coworkers, you might call him the clean freak of the bunch. Eventually, the pungent perfume from those women came to leave a bad taste in his mouth.
But Liu Duo’s natural fragrance was heaven to his nose. He couldn’t help but wrap himself tighter around her waist.
Feeling like she was in a vice, Liu Duo’s eyes shot open.
“Loosen up, do you want to kill me?” she barked, swatting his hand away.
Ye Liu loosened up said in a drowsy voice, pretending to be asleep: “You’re still awake, Xiao Duo? Is it that arousing to have my arms around you? Hm~?”
Liu Duo swallowed hard, unable to keep her cool: “Scoundrel!”
“Ah…” Ye Liu couldn’t help but relish in the moment before continuing: “Xiao Duo, your second brother’s a handsome man. When working in the town, the ladies practically beg me to hold them…”
If Ye Liu was born in a wealthy family, he’d undoubtedly end up a playboy!
Liu Duo didn’t like the thought of all these women laying hands on her prize, This was her man, for her hands alone.
She turned over to Ye Liu and said with a fist raised: “See what happens if you lay your hands on another woman… I dare you!”
He opened his eyes and looked over at her face. He smiled and pulled her little hand back inside the quilt: “Rest assured, my mind and body belong to you, my Xiao Duo! My wife is my heaven, my world, and my life!”
Hearing what every bride wanted to hear, Liu Duo’s face was beaming: “They’re almost the same!”
“Okay, let’s go to sleep.”, Ye Liu raised the quilt and covered her.
“Yeah,” Liu Duo was in a good mood, good enough to let herself lean against him.
Hurry and grow up, Xiao Duo! This is torture! Ye Liu had no choice but to endure the fire once again surging through him.
