Chapter 588: A Kiss as a Reward (2)

Translator: Henyee Translations    Editor: Henyee Translations

Shao Jingmo looked down at the person in his arms and knew that she was pretending to be asleep. He did not expose her.

As they walked past the family of three, Qiao Qiao vaguely heard the woman say to her lover, “Do you remember when I quarreled with my parents back then and ran away from home in a fit of anger? When you found out, you came to find me and coaxed me for a long time. You even coaxed me to sleep.

After that, you carried me home like this.”

The man’s voice was like a gentle wind. It sounded gentle. “You remember after all this time?”

The woman snorted a laugh. “I’m just forgetful, I didn’t lose my memory.”

The man told her in a low voice, “l didn’t tell you. I hugged you all the way that day and my arms were trembling the next day when I opened the bottle of mineral water.’

The woman giggled. “That’s for trying to be brave!”

The man said, “ If I don’t force myself, I’m afraid the person beside you now isn’t me.”

Qiao Qiao pretended to be asleep all the way and didn’t open her eyes when she entered the elevator. When she reached the floor and Shao Jingmo opened the door, she suddenly opened her eyes and asked, “Is your arm sore?”

Shao Jingmo looked down at her. “Are you awake?”

Qiao Qiao smiled in embarrassment. “I was pretending to sleep.”

Shao Jingmo said, “l know.”

Qiao Qiao said, “Why ask if you know?”

Shao Jingmo said, “l want to see how long you’ll pretend to sleep.”

Qiao Qiao kicked her legs. “Then put me down now. Otherwise, it won’t be easy for you to open the door.”

Shao Jingmo said, “That’s what you thought.” With that, the door opened with a click. It was a fingerprint lock, so it was easy to open the door even when he was carrying her. He carried her inside and hooked his foot to close the door. “The switch is to your left,” he said.

Qiao Qiao reached out according to Shao Jingmo’s instructions and found it accurately. She pressed the switch and the entire living room was instantly as bright as day.

This was the first time Qiao Qiao had come to the Tianfang Water Pavilion under Shao Jingmo’s name. It was completely different from the Qiao residence’s renovation style. This place was simpler and more in line with Shao Jingmo’s aesthetic taste.

However, it was obvious that some of the furnishings had not been carefully planned. Qiao Qiao saw this detail and casually commented. However, Shao Jingmo said, “That’s because I’m waiting for a mistress.”

Qiao Qiao said, “l don’t know how.”

Shao Jingmo placed her on the sofa. “You can try if you don’t know. I’m leaving it to you anyway. It doesn’t matter if it’s a little late. There’s no hurry to stay.”

Qiao Qiao raised her head and asked him, “Do you really believe in my aesthetic taste? Aren’t you afraid that I’ll completely turn this place into the style 1 like?”

The style she liked was too fresh and young. It was completely different from the style Shao Jingmo liked. Even if they fused together, it was very abrupt. Shao Jingmo stood up. “If the home that belongs to us can all become your favorite style, I will definitely look forward to coming home every day.”

Qiao Qiao bent her knees and stepped on the sofa, then stood up. This made her seem much taller than Shao Jingmo. She reached out and placed her hands on his shoulders. “Did you see the family of three downstairs?”

Shao Jingmo raised his eyebrows. “Hm?”

Qiao Qiao scratched the back of his neck with her fingertips. “Did you see that?”

Shao Jingmo said, “1 saw it.”

Qiao Qiao bit her lip. “Although I was pretending to be asleep with my eyes closed, do you know what I was thinking?” Shao Jingmo said. “Thinking about our future?”

The smile on Qiao Qiao’s lips suddenly disappeared. “No way. How could you guess that?”

“It wasn’t a guess. 1 thought so too,” he said. Qiao Qiao was slightly stunned. Shao Jingmo kissed her cheek. “At that time, I was also wondering if that scene would be reflected on us three or four years later. A family of three.”

Qiao Qiao asked, “What if it’s a family of four?”

Shao Jingmo said, “Everythings fine.”

It was still early. Worried that Qiao Qiao would starve for too long, Shao

Jingmo got Qiao Qiao a yogurt from the fridge and turned to the kitchen. Nowadays, Shao Jingmo rarely returns to the Tianfang Water Pavilion. The property management would regularly inform Shao Jingmo before changing the ingredients in the fridge.

Shao Jingmo’s culinary skills were naturally not as good as Qiao Qiao’s, but he couldn’t bear to let Qiao Qiao cook, so he rolled up his sleeves and personally cooked two portions of seafood noodles.

In the living room, Qiao Qiao turned on the television and shook her legs while drinking yogurt. She sat leisurely and waited for Shao Jingmo’s noodles to be served.

The cell phone beside her buzzed.

Qiao Qiao poked her head over to take a look. Seeing that it was a call from Mother Qiao, she quickly put the yogurt aside and took the phone to answer the call.

“…Mom,” she said in an extremely low voice..
