Tang Mo’er was stunned and stopped her kiss as she opened her eyes again, disrupted by Qi Xi’s voice. Almost instinctively, she moved to push him away.
“Qi Xi…” She whispered to remind him.
But she didn’t manage to push him away, his muscular arm snaked around her narrow waist and held her forcefully in his arms, not allowing her to leave.
Tang Mo’er felt her scalp pulled to the side as his luxury watch hooked a few strands of her silky hair and tugged it painfully.
She frowned out of the pain and looked at him with her clear eyes all watery.
The water from the shower had completely soaked her to the bone, making her silky hair stream down her face and frame her charming facial features. He just couldn’t get sick of her expressive eyes, even after being together with her for such a long time. It still made his heart throb, giving it life like no other.
Furrowing his brows, he gently kissed her upon her eyelids, then removed the watch from his wrist and placed it on the counter.
He held her slender waist and easily turned her around. “Baby, I’ve missed you so much.”
Tang Mo’er shivered at his words and closed her eyes, she didn’t dare to look at his handsome face.
With Qi Xi’s voice drifting away into nothingness, she felt herself fall further and further from grace.
Tang Mo’er felt like she truly understood the meaning of ‘absence makes the heart grow fonder’. Even after rushing back from the Capital, he still had so much energy. They spent two hours in the bathroom and he brought her out only after cleaning her up, placing her on the soft bed gently.
He covered her with the silk blanket and Tang Mo’er buried her red, burning face into the soft pillow. She was exhausted and all she wanted was to curl up in the sheets and not think about anything for a long time.
Her line of vision soon turned dark as he stepped closer to her and kissed her forehead, gently coaxing her, “Go to sleep now, Mo’er. Good night.”
Hearing the gentle lull of his steady voice, Tang Mo’er shut her eyes and fell asleep in no time at all.
After seeing the rise and fall of her chest as she finally immersed herself into the arms of slumber, Gu Mohan leaned against the bed frame lazily, his black bathrobe loosely tied and revealing half of his muscular chest. He had a cigarette between two fingers and let out a puff of smoke.
Lowering his head, his deep eyes landed on the tiny face in his arms. In the fogginess, those eyes narrowed, exuding a dangerous aura…
The next morning.
Tang Mo’er was awakened by the ringing of her cell phone, she slowly opened her eyes and there wasn’t anyone beside her. Gu Mohan was gone.
She had woken up too late, it was already eight in the morning and the morning rays had shone through the curtains, warming the entire room with a faint glow.
Stretching out her hand to reach for her cell phone, she picked up the call, gently rubbing the sleep out of her eyes. “Hello, who’s this?”
“Hello, Miss Tang, it’s me.”
CEO Wan’s voice could be heard.
Why did he call?
Tang Mo’er didn’t have much of an expression and replied caustically, “CEO Wan, to what do I owe the honor?”
“Miss Tang, are you still blaming me for setting up you up with Gu Tianling? That time, I really didn’t have a choice. If you think about it, other than that, we don’t have any bad blood. I definitely don’t have any intention to harm you. The other time when your name was removed from the list, it was also Gu Tianling’s instructions. He is the boss and as his subordinate, I’m only a small fry so I can only take his orders. Although I hid these matters from President Gu and you, I sincerely hope that Miss Tang can be magnanimous and give me another chance.”
Tang Mo’er was aware that CEO Wan didn’t have a choice. Although he was the person in-charge of DHA Diamonds, he still had to constantly be on his guard. Towards DHA Diamonds, he only held genuine feelings.
After a moment of silence, Tang Mo’er responded, “CEO Wan, what do you want from me?”
“Miss Tang, President Gu ordered for me to be fired this morning. Not only that, all those at the managerial level have also been removed from office.”
