The Little Princess’s Married-in Boyfriend (16)
Xu Menggui avoided his wound as he finished washing. He saw Bai Weiwei lying on the bed, her breathing already even.
Too many things happened today, tiring her out, so she went straight to bed.
Truly without any vigilance.
He didn’t get on the bed and instead looked at the sofa in the room. Although it was a bit shorter, he still wronged himself into sleeping with his legs tucked.
After all, with his current temperament, there was no way he could do such a bold thing as get on the bed.
Then he closed his eyes, feigning sleep.
After a while, the person on the bed really did get off the bed and carefully approach his side.
Xu Menggui sneered in his heart. Still too inexperienced to lie to him.
Bai Weiwei glanced at him. She walked away, then she dragged over the quilt and carefully covered him.
Xu Menggui felt her fingers softly pulling up the quilt to cover him.
Her movements extremely gentle.
Xu Menggui couldn’t help but press down his heavy breathing.
Bai Weiwei didn’t leave, instead sitting down next to him.
Xu Menggui was very sensitive to the gazes of others, especially those that were malicious.
But her gaze was not the kind that made him on guard and vigilant. On the contrary, it made him very comfortable.
Then he heard her laugh softly.
“You seem to be the darling1 I’m looking for.”
Xu Menggui: Darling…
Bai Weiwei innocently said, “When my mom was still around, she once told me that every person will find their own darling, a person as beautiful and good as a rainbow. As long as you meet him, you will be bless your whole life.”
Xu Menggui: Only Bai Weiwei would believe this kind of lies that were used to fool children.
But Bai Weiwei said softly, “I think I’ve found them.”
After speaking, she couldn’t help laughing in joy.
Her laugh was toned down and soft, but full of delight.
Then he heard her softly call out a few characters.
Xu Menggui only felt that these three characters were both familiar and unfamiliar.
Familiar because it was his name, unfamiliar because, up until now, no one had ever called his name in such a gentle and joyful tone.
Before he could react, Bai Weiwei placed a soft kiss to his lips.
“You are my darling. Good night.”
After saying this, she smiled and turned to go back to bed.
Bai Weiwei knew that it was very difficult to pretend to sleep without being discovered by people like Xu Menggui, so she very heartily closed her eyes and pretended to sleep.
And when she slept, the favorability meter notified her of an increase.
【Ding, male lead’s favorability: 5.】
Xu Menggui finally opened his eyes when he heard she was truly asleep. His gaze was somewhat dark, but it held hints of turmoil.
He’d thought his heart was already dark and strong enough.
He’d never cared about the warmth of others. He was even disgusted by scenes where the father was kind, the son filial, and the mother loving, or scenes where lovers were affectionate.
Because he had never gone through those experiences.
While young, a violent mother. When grown, abused by his father, siblings, and family members.
That warmth had never been his.
Anyone who called his name called it like they were calling over a wild dog.
Bossing him around.
There was a time when he loathed his name.
Because those who called him beat him or set him up.
Unexpectedly, there was someone who would call his name in such a pleasant voice.
An innocent little girl who lived in a fairy tale.
Xu Menggui got up, approached the bed, and lowered his head to look at her.
She hugged the quilt, her white cheeks tinted with a cherry-red blush, looking delectable and beautiful.
He couldn’t help but reach out and softly stroke her delicate face. He traced along her thick lashes and closed eyes.
