Chapter 280: Everyone is a Coward in Love (16)

At this moment, he is wearing only that shirt and nothing else.

Although she cannot really see anything, the temptation is there.  Especially since his fringe is let down.  Rather than looking imposing and cold as always, he looks amiable, like a well-behaved high-schooler.

Seeing him, Zhuang Nai Nai cannot help but laugh.

He raises his eyebrows at her, “It doesn’t look good on me?”

She shakes her head, “No, you look really good.”

Only allowed on

“Oh,” says Si Zheng Ting.  He feels a little unnatural at being looked at by her like that.  He unconsciously tries to tuck in his hands into the pockets of his trousers only to realize that he is not-wearing-any-pants!

He awkwardly tries to fix the hem of the shirt.

Zhuang Nai Nai wants to laugh some more, but is cut off by him when he says, “Aren’t you going to help me take it off?”

She wants to vomit; who does he think he is, the emperor?

Despite that, she goes and helps him anyway.

He is very tall, much taller than her, so she has to tiptoes to help him unbutton the first button.

The moment her fingers comes into contact with that shirt, his body tenses up as something akin to an electrical jolt travels from the tips of her fingers to him.

Zhuang Nai Nai’s heart is beating very fast as well.

Although both of them are legally married and have done a lot of things, it is rare for them to be this close to each other. 

His scent is all that she could smell and her head feels very light due to their close proximity.

She sighs in relief after unbuttoning the last button of the shirt.  She takes a step back, only to have him pulling her right into his body.

His skin feels so warm. 

Her face turns red.

Just as she tries to shrug him off, he lifts her up and carries her bridal-style.  He puts her on top of one of the display cabinet.

She feels her sight turning dark in front of her as he swoops down to kiss her.

Since she has been taking tonic these past few days, her lips smells faintly of traditional medicine.  Si Zheng Ting’s ardent kiss slowly turns gentle.

Zhuang Nai Nai stops struggling; his kiss seems to have convey the care and concern that he harbours for her.

This is the first time he has ever openly expresses that.

This kind of care makes her think that perhaps Si Zheng Ting really likes her after all……

Even though he did not love her 5 years ago, there is a chance that he might find her likeable now.

Her heart leaps up in excitement.

Her entire head feels fuzzy as she immerses herself in that kiss.

His love is elusive, and his heart is impenetrable by others.  No one can truly understand him.

Ever since they meet again, she has been a coward in love.  She does not have the guts to openly profess her love for him, but now, she really cannot hold it in any longer.

This question has been bothering her for years.  After a moment, she pushes his face away from hers as she looks at him earnestly, “Si Zheng Ting, have you ever loved me for even a moment?”
