Chapter 167: Afraid That You’d Be Bullied When I’m Not Around
“I’m your husband, I’ll be with you for the rest of your life. You don’t have to put up a strong front in front of me or have any reservations.”
Qiao Mianmian cried even harder against his warm, sturdy chest when she heard that reassurance.
She remembered the times her mother was still around.
The times Qiao Ruhai still pampered her as a daughter.
The more she recalled, the sadder she got…
All the negative emotions she’d held inside were released at once.
She held Mo Yesi and cried for the longest time.
In the end, Mo Yesi had to carry her into the car.
She’d cried for so long, there was nothing left in her.
It felt more tiring than running a few kilometers at one go.
In the car.
Mo Yesi did not let go of her. He held her in his arms, anyway.
Qiao Mianmian had gone all weak and was leaning against him limply.
Mo Yesi tidied her hair slightly and wiped the tear marks off her face with his handkerchief.
She was just like a little kitten, allowing him to stroke her as he wished without reacting at all.
“Young Master, back to the office?”
Uncle Li asked when he got into the car.
Mo Yesi glanced at his watch and nodded. “Mm, back to the office.”
There was still a lot of unfinished matters.
He had to return to the office to settle them.
He was actually very busy today. There was a lot to do, and many of them were important matters to attend to.
Even he had no idea how he could possibly put all the important things down at once to rush here.
Even though she said that she was able to handle it herself and that he did not have to worry…
He simply couldn’t be at ease until he came down to see it for himself.
He was worried that she’d be aggrieved, worried that she’d be bullied, worried that…
He was worried about so much.
Initially, he’d married her only because she was special to him in that way. But it had only just been a few days of marriage and he now felt so strongly for her.
Upon hearing that he was going to the office, Qiao Mianmian finally looked up. “You’re going back to the office?”
Mo Yesi looked down at her and said very gently, “Mm, I still have some unfinished business to settle. I have to go back.”
“Since you’re so busy, why did you…” Qiao Mianmian bit her lip and asked softly.
“I was worried about you.”
Mo Yesi looked at her swollen cheek and sighed. “I’m afraid that you’d be bullied when I’m not around. I didn’t expect to still be late.”
She still had to bear that slap.
He was very straightforward.
Qiao Mianmian’s heart pounded quickly as she heard him say that he was “worried about her”.
Especially when he looked at her with eyes that could sweep her off her feet.
She might never be grounded again if she lost herself in his eyes.
They’d only known each other for a while, and they didn’t have strong feelings for each other yet. But he was so nice to her that she was getting flustered over it.
Nobody’s contribution was unconditional.
She had to repay him somehow for all of this.
But no matter how she tried to think, he simply didn’t need anything.
The only thing she could repay him with… was her body.
