There was still Grandpa Zhou and his elder sister around. Xia Zhe had gone ahead to do the cleaning up without thinking about how they might react.
“This Xiao Zhe knows how to dote on his wife. Not bad, not bad. This is how it should be.” Zhou Sheng looked at Xia Zhe and praised him.
“Qiao Mei, there’s no need to be shy. Our family doesn’t have so many rules. These are all things that Xiao Zhe can do. You don’t have to do these things,” Xia He said.
When she heard what elder sister and Grandpa Zhou said, Qiao Mei’s face turned even redder.
“Why are you blushing? I didn’t say anything about you. Alright, alright. The young girl is shy so I shan’t say anything more. I’m going to head back.” Zhou Sheng teased her before leaving and slowly made his way back to his house.
Xia He packed her things and prepared to leave.
“Elder sister, I’ve already tidied up the guest room for you. You can stay here,” Qiao Mei said.
“I want to stay here too, but Kong Li is still at home. If she causes any trouble, I won’t be able to show my face next time,” Xia He said helplessly.
With Kong Li’s temper, she would definitely anger their grandfather if she stayed in the Xia family residence.
Moreover, Xia He’s parents placed their things casually around the house and did not lock the drawers and cabinet doors. If anything went missing at home or Kong Li broke something, it would be too embarrassing to have to explain it to her family.
Thinking of this, she felt worried.
“Come to my house then. My place is the most suitable,” Xia Fang said.
In Xia Fang’s apartment compound, there were people whose tempers were comparable with Kong Li’s temper. It might even lead to an exciting drama later.
“That’ll do. So sorry to have to disturb you, Aunt,” Xia He said to Xia Fang with a grin.
“What a glib tongue. Let’s go quickly. If we miss the last bus, we won’t be able to go back,” Xia Fang said.
After the two of them reached the door, Xia Fang suddenly made her way back anxiously. She held Xia Zhe’s hand and walked him to the side, then she whispered, “Don’t be rash, kid. She’s still in the early stages and she can’t handle any rough action.”
Although it was medically safe for Qiao Mei to sleep with Xia Zhe by this stage of the pregnancy, Xia Fang was worried that Xia Zhe did not know his limits. If he used too much strength and hurt Qiao Mei, it would be bad if something went wrong.
Xia Zhe understood what Xia Fang meant and nodded with a blushing face.
After speaking with Xia Zhe, Xia Fang left with Xia He.
Only Qiao Mei and Xia Zhe were left in the huge house. For a moment, they felt that it was too quiet.
“Mei Mei, the hot water is ready. Do you want to take a shower?” Xia Zhe asked.
“Yes, but the dishes in the kitchen are not washed yet. I’ll go wash the dishes first,” Qiao Mei said.
“Go take a shower. By the time you’re done, I will be done washing these dishes. Then I’ll go and take a shower. You don’t have to worry about these things. Go quickly.” Xia Zhe pushed Qiao Mei to the bathroom door situated in the side room.
“Thank you for your hard work.” Qiao Mei tiptoed in a playful manner and gave Xia Zhe a quick kiss on the cheek before rushing into the bathroom.
Xia Zhe was left alone outside the door. He stood in a daze as if he was still reminiscing about the kiss just now.
“Don’t stand at the door in a daze. Go quickly!” Qiao Mei shouted from the bathroom.
“Oh, oh! Call me if you need anything!” Xia Zhe went to the kitchen to wash the dishes after he got his senses back.
After they both showered, the two of them went back to the bedroom and lay down on the bed.
It was finally a world where there were only the two of them. Previously, when they were together in the army camp, they were surrounded by his comrades who had very sensitive hearing. There were also patrols every day, so he did not dare to make any sound at all.
At the current moment, no one could hear what they said or did in the house.
Xia Zhe gently hugged Qiao Mei in his arms and buried his head in her neck to take a deep breath.
“You smell so good…” Xia Zhe said intoxicatedly.
Qiao Mei, who had a sensitive neck, could not help but laugh.
“Hahahahaha, don’t touch me there. It’s so itchy!” Qiao Mei said while laughing.
Xia Zhe raised his head and adjusted his position. He placed his hand on Qiao Mei’s stomach and touched it gently, as if he was greeting the baby in her belly.
“Alright, both my big baby and little baby, go to sleep. If you don’t sleep soon, I’ll eat you up and leave nothing behind!” Xia Zhe said as he closed his eyes.
When Qiao Mei heard what Xia Zhe said, she looked at him with her big sparkling eyes and said coquettishly, “So what if you eat me? Don’t just talk about it without doing anything!”
