Honeyed Marriage - Chapter 105
Edited by ABE
The man’s words were like a huge rock, so violently thrown into Ruan Yan’s heart lake, a huge splash of water instantly rose, like a stormy sea.
Ruan Yan was stunned, feeling that everything around her became unreal.
She actually heard Zhou Mengyan say that he liked her?
He would actually like her?!
Ruan Yan was stunned, “But you said before that we are in a business marriage, and you said that love is a very troublesome thing…”
Zhou Mengyan replied:
“I did say it before.”
“But that was before I knew you.”
He looked at her, “Before I married you, I really didn’t expect love.”
When signing the prenuptial agreement, Zhou Mengyan did feel that love was a dispensable thing in life. Compared with money, fame and fortune, it seemed worthless.
Until Ruan Yan came, it was like a spring breeze passing the icy winter. Unexpectedly, quietly, his world melted and the sun was warm.
She appeared in his life and then entered his life.
It was not vigorous, but as steady as a long stream. He didn’t even know when his heart changed.
Zhou Mengyan looked at the expression on her face and realized that she was still so dull that she didn’t feel it at all, and the corners of his mouth curved into a helpless smile: “Scared?”
Ruan Yan heard his voice falling in her ears, beating the drum in her heart, faster and faster, “I never thought you would like me…”
“Yanyan is hard to dislike.”
Ruan Yan’s face turned redder.
She felt that she was about to faint…
Zhou Mengyan wanted to wait for her to respond, but the girl was so nervous that she couldn’t speak for a while. Seeing her extremely shy, he curled his lips and said, “Been so nervous when being confessed to before?”
She shook her head gently.
From childhood to adulthood, Zhou Mengyan was not the first person to confess to her face to face. Before, she would only be shocked, and then gently decline, but now she didn’t know why, she felt that her whole body was numb from top to bottom. It was like an electric current spreading across the limbs.
Seeing that she was silent again, Zhou Mengyan raised his hand and gently rubbed her hair, “Since you are so nervous, then I will ask you to answer, eh?”
“I didn’t know that I liked you before, so Yanyan doesn’t feel the same way, does she?”
Ruan Yan silently nodded.
Before getting married, Zhou Mengyan said so clearly, how dared she have other thoughts about him.
“It’s okay, don’t be in a hurry to answer me. The words I just said were because I just want you to know that I like you. I’m afraid I would be showing my feelings for so long, and then what should I do if you can’t notice it at all?”
With Ruan Yan’s dull and cute brain circuit, he wouldn’t chase just for a year or a half. Maybe the two of them were chatting across servers.
“I will give you time until you fully accept it.”
She was slightly startled.
It turned out that he didn’t want her to immediately respond to his confession…
The man looked at her: “So, Mrs Zhou, can I start chasing you now?”
His voice melted into the evening breeze.
Everything was quiet around them.
The only thing left was Ruan Yan’s heart turmoil, feeling his hot gaze, staying on her face all the time.
In the end, she finally nodded gently.
She didn’t know why she agreed, but the voice in her heart told her–
In the face of Zhou Mengyan, she did not resist.
After the lake tour, the boat docked on the shore. Zhou Mengyan led Ruan Yan to get off the boat, with an unconcealable arc on his lips. Ye Qing and Jiang Cheng, who were waiting on the shore, were overjoyed when they saw it.
It seems that Mr. Zhou chasing his wife was indeed hopeful!
On the shore, the staff went forward again: “Mr Zhou, Mrs Zhou, the hotel is ready, do you need me to take you there to rest?”
Ruan Yan heard this and was led by him to move forward, and her thin complexion was dyed red again.
When the man did not confess before, she felt that their relationship in bed was not based on love, meaning, two adults meet their needs. After having one or two times, Ruan Yan also felt it acceptable, but now…
The two were led to a Chinese-style single-family villa, and then the staff left and opened the door. The interior was already romantically arranged. After passing through the front yard, there was a road covered with rose petals and star lights. Inside the villa, she smelled the scent of roses.
Zhou Mengyan looked at her and suddenly said: “Let’s go upstairs.”
Ruan Yan thought about what might happen in a while, and her heart became even more confused.
They went to the second floor of the duplex villa and opened the bedroom door. In the center was a king-size bed sprinkled with roses. They could also see the Lovers Lake and the mountains behind the floor-to-ceiling windows. The privacy was excellent.
The man did not move.
The feeling of ambiguity was rising bit by bit.
Ruan Yan lowered her eyes, pursed her lips, and plucked up her courage: “Meng Yan, I think…”
Zhou Mengyan looked at her cramped appearance, then stood in front of her, leaned down, and stared at her.
“I don’t think I can do anything right now, with you…”
Hearing this, he smiled, covered her hair with his palm, and said warmly, “I know.”
“Now our relationship is different from before. I am chasing you. I know that if I let it happen without you liking me, you will find it strange and uncomfortable.”
He only held her shoulders, and gently rubbed her cheeks with his fingers, “I won’t do those things to you when you don’t agree, until you like me, alright?”
Originally, their relationship was established and sexual, but now that he wanted to love her, he acted towards her like a suitor, respecting her, and would not mix with desires and hopes.
Ruan Yan did not expect that all of her concerns were taken into account by him…
She pursed her lips and nodded gently.
“Then this room will belong to you tonight, and I will go to sleep next door,” he said.
Zhou Mengyan took her to get familiar with the clothes to be changed into tonight and where the bathroom was. Finally, he looked at her, relaxed his desire to embrace her, and let go: “I’m going next door.”
Ruan Yan should go to bed.
He turned and walked to the door. As he closed the door, he looked back at Ruan Yan who was in the room.
Finally, he returned to the guest room next door and realized that he was going to live a separated life for some time in the future, and his heart was mixed.
Distancing himself from her?
It was not like that.
It was just to enable her to fully become his wife sooner.
On the other side, after the man left, Ruan Yan took a change of clothes and went to bathe first.
After taking a shower, she was blowing her hair, remembering what Zhou Mengyan said to her on the lake from time to time in her mind, blushing and her heart beating, feeling her whole body starting to get hot again.
Ruan Yan felt that she didn’t seem to have done anything, but he liked her.
After blowing her hair, she fell on the bed, rolled around, buried her face in the quilt, and whimpered: “It’s too unreal…”
In the end, Ruan Yan rolled herself into a spring roll. Thinking of something, she drew her hand and climbed out of the bed to get the mobile phone on the side cabinet.
She dialed out the phone number, and a few seconds later, Zhu Xing started:
The other end was surprised and smiled: “No, Yanyan, now at this point in time, you will actually call me? Tonight is such a special and romantic day, shouldn’t you be sweating with Zhou Mengyan at this moment?”
Ruan Yan: “…”
“No way, Zhou Mengyan let you go tonight? No?”
“He confessed to me tonight.”
Zhu Xingzhi: ??!!!
“What the hell?”
Ruan Yan covered her face, knowing that she would have such a big reaction, “Don’t get excited…”
“Zhou Mengyan actually said that he likes you?! No wonder. I told you! How would he take you to a romantic place like Yuexin Lake Bay tonight otherwise?! And you told me it was impossible. Tell me how he told you!”
Ruan Yan roughly recounted the story, and the more she said, the hotter her face got. Zhu Xingzhi smiled after hearing it, “Zhou Mengyan is serious, right?”
How could someone like him make such a joke?
“Oh my God, why am I more excited than you? I don’t know what I am excited about, did you agree?”
“No, I don’t feel that way about him now…” After all, everyone said it was easy to be a nameless couple, who knew he’d break the rules.
“It’s okay. I know, you have to take your time when it comes to feelings. Hey, I can’t believe Zhou Mengyan, who is so cold and takes his work so seriously, one day would finally see how cute our Xiao Yanyan is!”
Zhu Xingzhi smiled, “Like Zhou Mengyan, a cold man who says he doesn’t want to fall in love, once he looks back at you, you are his life. I feel that you are so sweet even if you are not together yet!”
Ruan Yan exploded in her head, “What are you talking about…”
As soon as the voice fell, Ruan Yan heard a knock on the door, and quickly said to the other end: “Wait—”
Ruan Yan put down the phone and accidentally touched the speakerphone on the screen, but she didn’t notice it either.
When she walked to the door, she opened the door and saw the figure of the man standing outside.
As soon as Zhou Mengyan was about to speak, he heard a voice from the room: “Yanyan, I warn you, you must not promise Zhou Mengyan so early, you must let him chase you well! Let him know that you are not like that, super cute and easy to get!”
Ruan Yan, who could hear very clearly: “…”
Ruan Yan quickly walked back to the room, picked up the phone on the bed and turned off the speaker, her face was red as if she had wiped a tomato.
Oh, oh, Zhou Mengyan must have heard it.
Embarrassing, too embarrassing QAQ.
