Chapter 1257: Like a Little Boy
Ning Shu saved the videos, pulled out the USB and locked it in the drawer. Afterwards, she turned off the computer, yawned and lay down to sleep.
She heard footsteps, so she silently counted to three and heard the sound of the door open.
Then there was the sound of running water coming from the bathroom.
Ning Shu was really speechless. Jing Shaoze sure had a busy night life, moving from one woman’s bed to another.
Jing Shaoze also seemed to enjoy this kind of life quite a lot. He would flirt with the surrogate mother that was standing nearby by shooting over a nefarious glance even while hugging his wife.
He switched roles way too smoothly, it was nearly seamlessly.
After showering, Jing Shaoze lay down next to Ning Shu and fell asleep. When Ning Shu turned around, she saw that Jing Shaoze had his back facing her and his breathing was slow and even. It was obvious that he had fallen asleep as soon as his head had touched the pillow.
In reality, Jing Shaoze and Ni Jing were already dreaming of different things while sharing the same bed.
Jing Shaoze said that he loved Ni Jing, but he was already captivated by Ye Xi. His feelings had already gone from pure physical attraction to emotional desire.
However, he was still lying to himself and wavering back and forth.
After waking up, Jing Shaoze was still gentle and considerate to Ning Shu like usual, so they seemed like a picture book happy couple.
Although Jing Shaoze was gentle, Ning Shu could sense that Jing Shaoze’s attitude was starting to become perfunctory. He simply said halfhearted words in a gentle tone.
Ning Shu and Jing Shaoze went downstairs together. Jing Shaoze’s mother was currently asking Ye Xi, “What’s the matter? Why does your facial color look so bad? Are you not feeling well?”
Jing Shaoze’s gaze immediately landed on Ye Xi. When he saw that Ye Xi’s face was haggard and that she looked listless, he asked anxiously, “What’s wrong?”
Immediately afterwards, Jing Shaoze realized that he was actually worried and his expression immediately became stern. He pulled back the chair heavily, causing the chair to make a harsh noise as it scraped across the floor.
He sat down and said coldly, “Since you’re a surrogate mother, you should be taking care of your body at all times. During the time before you give birth to the child, your body doesn’t belong to you. You’re not allowed to appear in front of me in this sickly manner.”
Ye Xi’s gaze dimmed as she looked towards Jing Shaoze. Then she lowered her head and said in a low voice, “I understand.”
Her body was aching all over so she really didn’t feel well, but she was living under someone else’s roof so she couldn’t very well refuse to get up on time.
Ning Shu took in Jing Shaoze’s awkward behavior. He clearly couldn’t help worrying about Ye Xi, but the words that came out of his mouth were very unpleasant.
Ye Xi had obviously gone through a lot last night and barely slept at all. After being dragged along to do exercise all night last night, she still had to get up early in the morning the next day.
Jing Shaoze was very angry when he saw Ye Xi like this so as he ate breakfast, he jabbed his knife and fork down hard, making harsh, displeased sounds.
As he ate breakfast, he kept glancing at Ye Xi. When he saw that Ye Xi had her head lowered and was focused only on eating breakfast, he became even more angry. He slammed his knife and fork down on the table and spoke to his mother in a cold tone, “Mom, what kind of surrogate mother is this? With how listless she looks, how can the child possibly be born healthy?”
When Jing Shaoze’s mother saw her son so irritated, her lips hooked. “She just didn’t sleep well last night. Ye Xi’s body is very healthy. What are you being so worried for?”
Ning Shu also looked at Jing Shaoze. “What are you being so worried for?”
“You’re the greatest gentleman. How can you say something this harsh to Miss Ye?” Ning Shu looked towards Jing Shaoze with a faint smile.
In front of the person he loved, in face of uncontrollable emotion, even the most gentlemanly man would become childish and mischievous. Just like a little boy, he would play tricks on the girl to attract the girl’s attention.
This was what the current Jing Shaoze was like.
