Chapter 507: Keeping a Secret

Actually, it was fine not to explain. Her special explanation made it seem like she was up to no good. However, Shao Jingmo asked her, “What kind of person?”

Qiao Qiao tightened her grip on his button. “…I’m afraid you think I’ll do something to you while you’re weak.”

“You worried too much. I don’t have such worries.” His tone was steady. “Even if you take advantage of me now and want my life, I won’t resist.”

Qiao Qiao chuckled. “Of course you won’t resist. With your injuries, do you have the strength to resist?”

Shao Jingmo asked, “What do you think?”

Qiao Qiao snorted. “Stop showing off. Only your mouth is good now.” He smiled ruefully.

Qiao Qiao released her grip on his button, then lowered her head and continued to unbutton another button. Actually, she wanted to ask Shao Jingmo why he trusted her so much. Wasn’t he afraid that she would take this opportunity to hurt him?

Although she couldn’t do anything to take advantage of others, there was a saying that one had to be wary of others. For example, she was always wary of Shao Jingmo. On the other hand, Shao Jingmo was really not wary of her at all and even dared to let her treat his wound.

The atmosphere quickly quietened down.

She moved quickly and quickly unbuttoned Shao Jingmo’s shirt. His strong chest was exposed, and his well-defined abdominal muscles attracted Qiao Qiao’s attention. However, no matter how attractive he was, she was not in the mood. She could only obediently pull open his shirt and continue the bandage.

Although it took a little longer, the wound didn’t seem to be bleeding so much. Qiao Qiao secretly heaved a sigh of relief.

During the bandaging, she glanced at Shao Jingmo’s reaction from time to time. He was really calm, as if he was not the one who was injured. Instead, she was so nervous that she was sweating.

“Done,” she said, a little out of breath.

“Thank you,” he said, and prepared to button his shirt one by one.

Seeing that it was so difficult for him to even raise his hand, Qiao Qiao took the initiative to say, “Let me help you button it.”

Shao Jingmo was rarely polite to her. “I’ve already troubled you just now.”

“It won’t tire me out even if it’s a little more troublesome.” Qiao Qiao reached over and helped him button up naturally from top to bottom.

As she fastened the buttons, she tried to ignore the sight above her head. However, that gaze was too hot. Qiao Qiao couldn’t take it anymore. When she looked up, she met his gaze. She pretended to be fierce and said, “Don’t look at me like that.”

Shao Jingmo replied, “Okay.”

Qiao Qiao was slightly stunned.

Seeing her dumbfounded expression, Shao Jingmo said gently, “Didn’t you say that I can’t look at you? I know. I won’t look at you again.”

With that, he looked away.

Qiao Qiao: ‘

Eh, so obedient.

All along, Shao Jingmo’s image in her eyes had been extremely dictatorial. When did she not have to listen to him? As a result, she was always rebellious in front of Shao Jingmo.

“Shao Jingmo,” she called his name. Shao Jingmo nodded, but he did not turn to look at her. Qiao Qiao smirked. “l told you not to look at me, and you did so.

Why are you so obedient?”

Shao Jingmo simply closed his eyes and pretended not to hear anything. Seeing him close his eyes, Qiao Qiao knew that she would be asking for trouble if she continued. This person had no intention of paying attention to her.

But after all this trouble, she hadn’t asked him how he’d gotten hurt, although not asking didn’t mean she wasn’t curious. He’d been bleeding when the bandage was removed from such a deep wound. Had he been assassinated?

Unable to suppress her curiosity, she cleared her throat and shouted again, “Hey, Shao Jingmo.”

Shao Jingmo still ignored her.

Qiao Qiao wasn’t discouraged. She shouted, “Shao Jingmo, pay attention to me.”

Shao Jingmo closed his eyes. “What are you trying to say?”

Qiao Qiao lowered her voice and asked, “Can you tell me how you got injured? Don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone.” Shao Jingmo said, “A little accident.”

Qiao Qiao asked, “What accident?”

Shao Jingmo did not intend to tell her, so he stopped talking. Qiao Qiao was curious to begin with, so she was indignant that she couldn’t get the answer. “No matter what, I’m your wife, right? Why are you treating me like an outsider? Tell me.’

The words “I’m your wife” made Shao Jingmo open his eyes. Qiao Qiao had said that on purpose to see if Shao Jingmo would react. Seeing that he did, she was secretly delighted. “Tell me, I want to know.”

Shao Jingmo looked at the girl in front of him. When she tried to get information out of him, every expression on her face was especially vivid. She had grown up in his memories, and she would always move his heart as much as in his memories.

After looking at her for a moment, he said slowly, “Do you really want to know?”

Qiao Qiao nodded vigorously. “Yes, yes.”

Shao Jingmo hooked his finger at her. “Come closer.”

Qiao Qiao stopped buttoning his shirt and leaned in front of Shao Jingmo obediently. “Tell me. I’ll listen. I promise to keep this secret for you.”

Shao Jingmo chuckled. “It’s not a secret.”

Qiao Qiao:

Shao Jingmo said, “l just didn’t want to tell you.”

Qiao Qiao: ‘

Forget it if he doesn’t want to tell her.

She gave up asking and was about to get up when her hand was grabbed. She looked down and saw that it was Shao Jingmo’s hand. His last button was still undone. He probably thought she was leaving, so he suddenly grabbed her wrist.

Qiao Qiao said, “I’m not leaving.”

Shao Jingmo did not let go of her hand. “There were some problems with the business deal. I was accidentally injured.”

Qiao Qiao was surprised to hear Shao Jingmo explain the reason for her injury. He really told her everything.

Curious, she pressed, “How could the deal go wrong?”

Shao Jingmo said, “There’s a mole.”

“Did you catch the mole?” she asked again.

Shao Jingmo did not say much and only nodded. Qiao Qiao knew better than to probe further. After being silent for a few seconds, she realized that it was probably very late. She gestured for Shao Jingmo to let go. Shao Jingmo let go of her hand. When she was free, she took out her cell phone from her pocket and looked at the time.

It was almost eleven o’clock. It was indeed very late. She put away her cell phone and asked Shao Jingmo, “Do you want to go to the MO Residence with me?”

Shao Jingmo said, “No.”

Qiao Qiao sounded troubled. “But I promised Matriarch MO that I would bring my little uncle with me.”

Shao Jingmo said, “You didn’t tell Matriarch MO about our true relationship?” “No.” She spoke bluntly. “l wouldn’t say I’m married outside.”

Shao Jingmo lowered his eyes and said indifferently, “You can tell them the truth.’

Qiao Qiao’s eyes widened. “And say you were hurt?”

Shao Jingmo replied, ‘Yes.”

“Forget it then. I’ll say that you have something else on and it’s not convenient for you to go over for the time being.” She felt that this was more appropriate. If she really told Matriarch MO that her Little Uncle was injured and could not come over, Matriarch MO would definitely ask what had happened. It would be very troublesome to explain.

She stood up and turned to leave.

Shao Jingmo watched Qiao Qiao leave without hesitation and slowly closed his eyes.

After about two minutes, Qiao Qiao returned. Shao Jingmo opened his eyes when he heard the voice. Seeing that she hadn’t left, he thought that she had forgotten something. However, he heard her say, “I’ve sent Dao Xi back. I’ll sleep on the sofa tonight. Just call me if you need anything.”

Shao Jingmo’s calm eyes rippled. “You… aren’t going back to the MO Residence?”

“I’m not going back.” She went to the sofa and sat down. She crossed her legs and sat very casually. “I’ve already sent Xixi a message to tell her that I’m not going back to the MO residence tonight, so she knows. Dao Xi will tell Matriarch MO when he goes back.”

Of course, she wouldn’t admit that she was worried about Shao Jingmo staying in a hotel alone. What if his wound inflamed in the middle of the night and he fainted from a fever? There had to be someone beside him, right?

When she looked up, she realized that Shao Jingmo was looking at her with a deep gaze. She explained perfunctorily, “Sigh, don’t look at me like that. Just treat it as if 1 don’t want to be a widow..
