Gradually, she felt her whole body going soft, like she pulled out all her muscles and bones, where only her skin remained.
She felt her eyes were covered with a layer of fog and became more and more chaotic.
She didn’t hold on and fell into darkness.
Jing Xian raised his eyes and his sight fell on the girl sleeping on the chair.
He placed the water cup down, straightened up and walked towards her step by step.
He stood still and bent over.
His eyes look over her face, and his fingers touched her cheek.
It feels soft and greasy.
He slowly tilted his head and moved his fingers around her cheek.
A long time passed. He took out the cell phone in her pocket, held her finger and unlocked the lock.
After swiping the screen a few times, he put the phone back where he took it from.
Before she woke up, he poured out the hot water still steaming in her cup, and then cleaned the cup.
Nian Gao rubbed her eyes and woke up.
She was annoyed at herself because she could sleep anytime, anywhere.
Last night she didn’t get any because she wanted to ask Jing Xian whether he was single. In addition, she had done strenuous exercise, so she must have been so sleepy that she could fell asleep at any time.
She left the seat and a long coat slipped to the ground. She noticed that she was covered by the coat when she was sleeping.
Picking up the coat, she slap out the dust and looked around for Jing Xian.
Jing Xian was watering the potted plants with a kettle on the other side.
His movements were delicate and elegant, like he was pouring a work of art with water.
She approached him and shamefully said, “I fell asleep. I’m sorry.”
“Still sleepy?” he raised his eyes to look at her.
She shook her head.
“It’s getting late. I’ll take you home.” he put down the kettle.
Nian Gao faced the window and wanted to see the sky, but all she saw was the curtains being closed without leaving a gap.
She paused. It’s not hard to guess why all the curtains are closed.
Having know the reason, she didn’t know why but her heart was warmed. He was so considerate.
This time coincides with the rush hour of work, making the streets very crowded. The car was moving at a turtle speed.
Nian Gao leaned against the back of the chair and looked motionless at the scenery outside the window. On the surface, she seems calm, but in fact, she her heart was very chaotic.
She seems to be able to feel the residual temperature of his coat on her before.
At the thought of how he is so considerate with her, created a spark inside her.
A single spark that can start a fire on the vast prairie in an instant.
The exuberant flame turned into courage, the words she couldn’t utter before is what she asked right now.
“Do you have a girlfriend?”
She finally said it. Nian Gao was relieved at first, and then took a breath.
She is waiting for his answer.
At this time she was very nervous, more nervous than the time she was waiting for the college entrance examination results.
The short word was like a fireworks, crackled in front of Nian Gao.
“Why do you ask?” Jing Xian looked at her for a while before turning back his sight at the road.
Nian Gao could not restrain her excitement, and the corners of her mouth could not stop going up.
When she got the answer she wanted, her brain was more flexible and her speech was more agile. “You’re so handsome, I thought you should have a girlfriend.”
His gentle laughter rang out in the whole car.
He looked into her eyes and his lips opened and closed a few times.
Hear what he said. At first, the New Year cake didn’t react, and then the fireworks exploded more brilliantly.
What did he just say?
I’ve been single for 30 years and haven’t had a girlfriend yet.
Single for 30 years.
I haven’t had a girlfriend yet.
Nian Gao felt that fireworks were being set off all over the world right now.
