Chapter 235: His Crush

Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations

Qiao Qiao’s face was a little hot.



At that moment, Qiao Jingmo took off the shawl on his little arm, lifted it, and slowly leaned over to Qiao Qiao.

Qiao Qiao covered herself with her hands. “Shao Jingmo, what are you doing?”

Qiao Jingmo’s eyes darkened. Then, he slowly stood up and threw the shawl in his hand at Qiao Qiao. “Put it on. It’s cold outside.”

Qiao Qiao was stunned for a moment. She had instinctively protected herself just now because she thought that Qiao Jingmo had heard her say that she wanted to abuse him, so he had taken the initiative to attack her first.


Alright, she was thinking too much.

Grandpa was still around, and the two of them had yet to officially register their marriage. He should not be in a hurry to hit her before marriage. Otherwise, she would rather die than marry him.

She adjusted the shawl on her lap. It was quite thick. She had unknowingly been sitting outside for so long that she felt cold from the start. However, when she thought about how she would see Qiao Jingmo the moment she entered, she forcefully held back her coldness.

She unceremoniously wrapped her shawl around her neck. After being cold for a long time, because of this shawl, her entire body suddenly became warm. She breathed into her palms and rubbed her hands together, trying to warm herself up.


Qiao Jingmo lowered his eyes and looked at her small actions. “Since it’s so cold, why don’t you go in?”

Qiao Qiao’s hands froze. “I haven’t been back in a long time. I’m not even familiar with my own courtyard. Can’t I get familiar with it outside?”

“Of course.” Qiao Jingmo’s voice was calm. “But are you sure you want to do it in the middle of the night?”

Qiao Qiao:

Although she knew that it was already dark, she couldn’t help but look up at the sky after hearing Qiao Jingmo’s words. Then, she silently retracted her gaze and spouted nonsense in all seriousness. “My night vision is very good.”

“Oh?” Qiao Jingmo turned sideways. “Since you have good night vision, why don’t you take a look at the palm trees to the east?”


Qiao Qiao:

In the next second, she stood up in exasperation. “Shao Jingmo! You’re deliberately picking on me!”

Qiao Jingmo’s voice was calm. “You’re too irritable.”

It would have been better if he hadn’t said that. Once he said that, Qiao Qiao’s mood became even more irritable. “Who wouldn’t be irritable at the thought of marrying a big devil like you? I’ve already restrained myself very much!” Her restraint was shown by her clenched fists.

Qiao Jingmo looked at her calmly. “Do you really not want to marry me that much?”

Qiao Qiao replied without hesitation, “Yes.”

Qiao Jingmo: “Alright.”

With that, Qiao Qiao was stunned. She was really dumbfounded. She looked at Qiao Jingmo, who had suddenly compromised because of a certain sentence, in shock and disbelief and said, “Great Demon King, are you serious?”


Qiao Jingmo raised his eyebrows. “Of course.”

Qiao Qiao wanted to laugh, but she was afraid that she would rejoice too early. She asked first, “Don’t tell me you have a request?”

The smile on Qiao Jingmo’s lips spread. “Yes.”

Qiao Qiao thought to herself, Sure enough, he has a request.

However, she felt that as long as she didn’t marry Qiao Jingmo, she could compromise with any request. After all, marrying Qiao Jingmo was really too dangerous. She wasn’t free yet. As long as she could get rid of the ending of marrying him, she could even accept marrying an ugly freak.

However, Qiao Qiao would soon realize that she was thinking too early.

At this moment, Qiao Jingmo took out his phone in front of her and called his assistant. “Send the photos over.”

After giving his instructions, he hung up.

Qiao Qiao frowned suspiciously when she heard the photo. What photo?

As she was thinking, she heard Qiao Jingmo remind her, “Come in with me.” Qiao Qiao nodded and immediately followed behind Qiao Jingmo.

In the huge living room, layers of crystal lights spiraled down from the rainbow-colored glass dome.

An oil painting as tall as a person hung on the wall in the middle of the living room.

The person in the portrait was Qiao Qiao. Mr. Qiao, Mrs. Qiao, and Old Master Qiao liked this painting very much. After discussing it, they decided to hang this oil painting on the wall of the living room.


Qiao Qiao no longer had a deep impression of this oil painting.

She roughly remembered that when she went out to play, she was drawn by a passerby who was very good at drawing. Then, he gave this painting to her parents. She had never even seen that person before and still did not know what that person looked like.

At this moment, Qiao Qiao was standing under the oil painting.

In the past, she didn’t really appreciate it and thought that it was just so-so. Now that she had returned after three years and admired it carefully, she realized that this artist was very impressive. He had actually drawn her charm so vividly.

She didn’t believe that he could draw so well just by looking at her by the roadside.

Only someone who was familiar with her could have such standards. Professional artists had to stare at the person to draw them vividly. Jiang Lin walked over and stood behind Qiao Qiao. “Guigui, the you in the painting was exactly 18 years old that year.”

Qiao Qiao nodded. “I know. It was an unexpected surprise when I went out to play on my birthday.”

Jiang Lin said, “At that time, you didn’t take it seriously.”

Qiao Qiao pursed her lips. “I was too busy that day. All my friends were booked. At that time, I didn’t pay much attention to this painting. But now that I think about it, it’s indeed quite rude. I should thank that person in person.”

She was serious. If she could see that person again, she would definitely thank him sincerely.

Not to mention that the cost of this painting was not low, just the sincerity of the other party’s painting of her was rare.

“Actually…” Jiang Lin wanted to say something.

At this moment, Qiao Jingmo’s assistant, Fan Xi, walked in with a document.

On the other side, Qiao Jingmo and Mr. Qiao were chatting about something. The assistant handed the document to Qiao Jingmo, who took it. “The candidates are all here.”

Qiao Ruzhang stretched out her hand. “Let me see.”

Qiao Jingmo handed the document to Qiao Ruzhang.

Qiao Ruzhang opened the document. There were more than ten personal details of single entrepreneurs and a very high-definition three-inch photo. The important column was all: Unmarried.

Qiao Ruzhang chose and took away five or six pieces of information. He folded them up and placed them in the inner pocket of his clothes.

This scene was done in front of Qiao Jingmo.

Qiao Jingmo lowered his voice. “Actually, there’s no need to do this. It’s good to give her more choices.”

Qiao Ruzhang shook his head. “That won’t do.” With that, Qiao Ruzhang walked towards his wife and daughter. “Come here quickly.”

Qiao Qiao quickly slipped over. She had been waiting for this moment because she also wanted to know what the request was for Qiao Jingmo to compromise.

Jiang Lin sat down on the sofa with Qiao Qiao.

Qiao Qiao was already prepared. Her father placed a document on the coffee table and said, “Since you don’t want to marry Jingmo, we can’t force you.”

Qiao Qiao wanted to laugh. She wanted to laugh out loud. However, she secretly warned herself not to laugh too early before the dust settled. If anything went wrong, it would be over.

Bear with it! I must bear with it!

She took a deep breath. Her expression did not change, and her tone did not fluctuate. “Actually, the most taboo thing about relationships is forcing yourself. Because all the two people who forced themselves to be together ended up leaving on bad terms.”

Mr. Qiao nodded. “That’s right. Dad and Mom don’t want to see you unhappy in the future..
