Chapter 545: Taking the Initiative to Approach, The Jealousy Was Obvious (1)

Translator: Henyee Translations    Editor: Henyee Translations

Qiao Qiao didn’t get out of the car for a long time was not because she was afraid of Shao Jingmo getting angry. She was just a little confused and had not completely adjusted her state of mind.

At this moment, Shao Jingmo took the initiative to coax her out of the car. His expression was still so gentle. Unknowingly, Qiao Qiao felt a little guilty. “Little Uncle, actually, you don’t have to worry about me. Go in first.”

Shao Jingmo looked down at her. “Don’t worry about you?”

Qiao Qiao nodded. “l always get you into trouble.”

“There’s no trouble in my eyes. If I were your Little Uncle, I wouldn’t have to care, but I have an even more important identity. This identity has to care about you,” he said.

Qiao Qiao’s reaction was slow for a moment. “What?”

Shao Jingmo enunciated every word. “Your husband.”

Qiao Qiao was stunned. If Shao Jingmo haven’t mentioned it, she would not have realized that they were legally married. She was his wife in name and and a name on the certificate.

A moment later, Shao Jingmo leaned over and asked before hugging her, “Do you want a hug?”

Qiao Qiao was stunned again. Her almond-shaped eyes widened, and she looked surprised and confused. Such an expression was especially vivid in Shao Jingmo’s eyes. He couldn’t help but want to kiss her.

His Adam’s apple bobbed as he restrained the thought. He just looked down at her, waiting for her answer.

Qiao Qiao’s lips parted. In a very soft voice, she asked, “Hug… hug?”

Shao Jingmo raised his eyebrows. “Yes.”

Qiao Qiao couldn’t speak for a moment. To be precise, she had forgotten how to reply to him. Those words kept appearing in her mind: Hug? Do you want a hug?

Moreover, it was said by Shao Jingmo! Ever since she could remember, she had never heard Shao Jingmo say such gentle words. Not only did he say them to her, but he was also so gentle.

At this thought, Qiao Qiao couldn’t help but smile. Every frame of her silent laughter was vivid. Compared to the scare in the garage not long ago, this should be the original her.

Seeing her purse her lips and smile, Shao Jingmo asked, “You haven’t thought about it?”

Qiao Qiao looked up at Shao Jingmo. “I..”

Shao Jingmo said, “You don’t have to answer. Tell me with your actions.” Qiao Qiao bit the corner of her lip and reached out to him. Shao Jingmo couldn’t have misunderstood. It didn’t mean that she wanted to hug him. It meant that she wanted to hold his hand.

He smiled and withdrew to stand up straight. He reached out to her again. “Come. ”

Qiao Qiao looked at the broad palm in front of her and placed her hand on his heart without hesitation. She used the momentum to get out of the car slowly.

Her legs were a little weak, probably because she was frightened by Bai Qingnan from the beginning and then by Shao Jingmo’s personal action. After that, her feet never touched the ground. When she got out of the car, her legs went weak and she fell into Shao Jingmo’s arms.

Instinctively, she hugged him. He immediately held her lower back and comforted her. “I’m here.’

Qiao Qiao stood up straight with Shao Jingmo’s help. “I’m fine.”

Shao Jingmo held her hand tightly and led her. “Let’s go. They’re waiting for us to eat dinner.’

Qiao Qiao said in a negotiating tone, “Can you hide what happened today for me? Don’t tell my parents, especially Grandpa.”

Her voice became much softer as she continued, “You know Grandpa’s health. He can’t be anxious or frightened. He already feels guilty and blames himself for what happened to the Bai family. If he finds out that the Bai family looked for me on the first day I entered the company…”

She didn’t finish the sentence, but Shao Jingmo knew. He agreed to her request. “l know. I won’t mention it.”

Qiao Qiao pursed her lips. “Thank you.”

Shao Jingmo did not reply to her thanks. He held her hand and walked in.

In the dining room.

There was no need to deliberately divide the round table into master seats. Old Master Qiao had been eating in the recuperating bedroom previously. Recently, his physical and mental state had improved a lot, so he had been eating with everyone in the dining room.

The food was on the table when Shao Jingmo was on the way home.

At this moment, Old Master Qiao, Mr. and Mrs. Qiao were already sitting at the dining table, waiting for Qiao Qiao and Shao Jingmo to return.

Father Qiao had just heard from the servant that the car had returned. Seeing that no one had come in, he asked the servant to rush them. “Go and see what’s going on. If we wait any longer, the dishes will turn cold.”

Mother Qiao took a sip of warm water. “What’s the hurry? They’ll be in soon.” Father Qiao said, “You’ve said this more than four times..’!
