Married to a Disabled Man in the 70s - Chapter 26
Song QingHan was still standing there. He thought he had an auditory hallucination, so he asked her reflexively. But when he looked at her reaction, Song Qinghan’s eyes were shining, and he could not stop laughing, but he didn’t dare to laugh. He could only chuckle silently.
Good night kiss?
Was Jiaojiao asking him for a good night kiss?
Song Qinghan had never been to school. Naturally, his parents couldn’t afford to spend money on him, but he was eager to learn. He had been secretly going to the literacy classes held by educated youths ever since he was sensible. As he was smart, he learned a lot of words there.
Later, in the army, because the leader liked his willing-to-learn attitude very much, he always let Song Qinghan get learning opportunities. Song Qinghan, an eager learner, read many books there and had accumulated a large vocabulary base because of that.
Like now, when Su Jiaojiao said ‘goodnight kiss’.
He had heard ‘goodnight’ being used when people go to bed, and when the word ‘kiss’ was added after it…
Song Qinghan’s throat moved slightly. After Su Jiaojiao made his brain a little smushy, it had finally cleared up completely. He looked back at the book he was reading, resolutely gave up and blew out the oil lamp.
He slept on the inner side of the bed as always. The bed is enormous, so when two people lay down together, the gap that appeared when they first slept together (as in the purest, most innocent sense ;P) appeared again.
Su Jiaojiao glanced at him. The red-hot face had not reverted to normal yet. She said, “Goodnight,” then closed her eyes.
She thought that he didn’t hear what she just said. After all, she mumbled the phrase ‘goodnight kiss’ a bit. It would be expected for him to just listen to ‘goodnight’, so she instantly felt a lot calmer. She only felt apologetic that she found it hard to face him.
Song Qinghan kept smiling and didn’t say a word. After waiting for a while, Su Jiaojiao had really closed her eyes. His heart was becoming increasingly softer, and he felt amused. Jiaojiao was shy.
Jiaojiao’s a girl. If she was able to start talking about the topic, that would already be enough. He should be responsible for what comes next.
Song Qinghan’s eyes became softer and softer. He took the initiative to get closer. Then he saw the shadow of his long eyelashes trembling in the dim light. He obviously felt something, but he was too scared to move.
With his arms propped up, he slowly approached her. Finally, he touched her cheek, with unprecedented seriousness, as if he were carrying out an arduous task.
At that moment, there were only two words in Song Qinghan’s mind – soft and fragrant.
He was unwilling to move away immediately, just so close. Until he was about to suffocate, he immediately stepped back and lay down on his back, gasping, as if he was a suffocating man who had gotten a breath of fresh air.
(…Da wut is the author trying to convey)
He just forgot to breathe! (And you made me be so poetic! TT)
At the moment when the warmth on her cheek disappeared, Su Jiaojiao suddenly opened her eyes. Clutching the clothes on her chest with her hands, she squeezed out a handful of sweat. She was unconsciously biting her lips tightly, and her heart was beating like a drum. It seemed that it was going to jump out of her chest.
The room was so quiet that there were only the sounds of two people breathing and their heartbeats left.
After a long time, there was a deep and tender voice in the air, “Good night.”
“Good night.” Su Jiaojiao responded in a whisper.
Then the two of them started to smile and closed their eyes at the same time.
No one knows whether or not they fell asleep.
The next morning, it was much easier for Su Jiaojiao to give her husband a good morning kiss. Su Jiaojiao got up in the morning, kissed him, jumped out of bed and ran.
Although her face was still red, she was more generous than before.
TL: I’m strongly considering just doing full hand-TL. On another note, the fluff is killing me…I’m a single dog, and the excess of dog food is strangling me to death.
Also, thank you, readers, for reading this! (and not booing me in the comment section) Special shoutout to DoraiO from the discord server just to fluster her XD
