Chapter 575: Make Up for a Wedding (1)

Translator: Henyee Translations    Editor: Henyee Translations

Although Qiao Qiao didn’t directly ask about their true relationship, her attitude at this moment was very serious. She wanted to get the answer she wanted from Shao Jingmo!

She wasn’t sure if she would get her wish, but at least it came from Shao Jingmo. Fortunately, Shao Jingmo did not disappoint her. He did not even use his usual rhetorical tone. Instead, he said to her frankly and sincerely, “l hope it’s a relationship.” After saying this, he asked her again, “May l?”

This time, he didn’t beat around the bush and answered directly, which stunned Qiao Qiao. Her mouth opened slightly, and the chopsticks in her hand suddenly fell to the porcelain bowl with a crisp sound. They quickly rolled to the ground again, very coherent.

She bit her lip in frustration and was about to bend down and pick it up.

Shao Jingmo had already picked up the chopsticks and placed them aside before her. He then handed her a new pair of chopsticks. “Use this pair.” Qiao Qiao looked at the new chopsticks he handed her and then at him. She didn’t move. Shao Jingmo asked, “Are you full?”

“Not yet.” She shook her head.

Shao Jingmo asked, “You don’t want your chopsticks anymore?”

“I want it.” When she said this, her expression was very serious. Then, under Shao Jingmo’s gaze, she said another three words. “l want you too.”

She had racked her brains just now to think of many ways to respond to him. She was willing to date him! Very, very willing! However, she, who had always been carefree, actually felt a little timid and did not know how to respond to Shao Jingmo’s words.

At this moment, she lost her grip on her chopsticks and dropped them. Shao Jingmo picked it up and gave it to her. At that moment, there was only one thought in her mind: If she wanted chopsticks, she wanted him too!

“Are you sure?” he asked again, uncertain.

Qiao Qiao replied solemnly, “Absolutely.”

They smiled at each other. Qiao Qiao felt exceptionally unrestrained. She took the chopsticks from him and placed them beside the bowl. Then, she shifted her position and moved closer to Shao Jingmo, Then, she picked up her bowl and chopsticks and smiled brightly at him. “Since I want you, are we boyfriend and girlfriend now, or husband and wife?”

Shao Jingmo hooked his finger. “Come closer.”

Qiao Qiao obediently moved a little closer and then looked at him eagerly. “I’ll listen.’

Shao Jingmo’s eyes were filled with a gentle smile. “Both.”

Qiao Qiao refused. “No, I want a definite answer.”

“We’re a young couple that’s dating,” he answered seriously, not brushing her off.

Qiao Qiao held the bowl and smiled foolishly. “A… young couple that’s dating? Oh, it’s quite nice. I like it.”

He bent his head and kissed her. This time she didn’t move away. She even took the initiative to kiss him back.

After dinner, Qiao Qiao went home with Shao Jingmo. It was almost nine o’clock, and Old Master Qiao was already asleep. There was no one in the living room, but the lights were on, and the entire living room was as bright as day.

Qiao Qiao stepped into the living room. She walked quietly in front. Shao Jingmo did not walk with her. Instead, he walked behind with his hands in his pockets. She walked extremely slowly, worried that her high heels would make too obvious a noise.

Shao Jingmo slowly followed behind her and never exceeded her pace.

“They seem to be asleep?” she said to Shao Jingmo as she walked to the stairs.

“Maybe.” He wasn’t so sure.

Qiao Qiao looked around and didn’t see Father and Mother Qiao. She didn’t even see a servant. Thinking about it, nine o’clock was not considered late under normal circumstances. Tonight, the Qiao family was abnormally quiet.

Just as she was thinking this, she suddenly heard Mother Qiao’s voice from above. “Qiao Guigui!’

Qiao Qiao looked up abruptly. “Mom, you’re still awake?”

Mother Qiao was standing on the stairs in her pajamas with a thermos in her hand. It seemed that she was about to go downstairs to get some water when she bumped into Qiao Qiao and Shao Jingmo, who had returned at this time.

Mother Qiao walked down the stairs. Seeing her daughter smile guiltily at her, she asked, “Have you had dinner?”

Qiao Qiao nodded obediently. “Yes, I did.”

Mother Qiao asked, “Where did you eat it?”

Qiao Qiao said, “The company.”

Mother Qiao’s gaze landed on Shao Jingmo, who was not far behind Qiao Qiao. She asked despite knowing the answer, “Jingmo, why did you come back so late today?”

“Working overtime! ”

It was Qiao Qiao who took the initiative to answer.

Mother Qiao glanced at Qiao Qiao angrily. “I’m not asking you.”

Qiao Qiao smiled ingratiatingly. “I’m working overtime with Little Uncle.”

“I don’t know anything about your work. If you have to be busy, be busy. If you have to rest, rest too. Don’t tire yourself out.” Mother Qiao’s tone was filled with concern..
