Chapter 1271: Go to Sleep, Go to Sleep, Sleep…
Not a single one of them treated Ni Jing as a person. They thought it was enough to just say some pretty words and kept saying that Ni Jing was the Jing family’s daughter-in-law, but they completely treated her as a fool.
Jing Shaoze had said that he would only love Ni Jing in this lifetime, but his way of loving her was to get together with someone else?
He came up with all sorts of ways to hide things from Ni Jing since he was worried that Ni Jing wouldn’t be able to take the truth. Ni Jing really had to appreciate Jing Shaoze’s thoughtfulness.
Ning Shu sat on the bed and practiced the Unsurpassable Martial Arts. It was relaxing being at home alone.
To be honest, since Ye Xi and Jing Shaoze weren’t downstairs anymore, it also saved Ning Shu the torment of watching those ridiculously long videos. She had to reapply eye drops multiple times every day to clean out her eyes.
There were already a lot of videos on her computer, so she didn’t need to collect any more.
In the evening, Ye Xi and Jing Shaoze came back from work one after the other. When Ning Shu moved closer to Jing Shaoze, she smelled the scent of bath gel.
Ye Xi’s hair was also a little damp at the roots. It was obvious that these two had showered at the company.
Jing Shaoze and Ye Xi’s clothes were slightly wrinkled as well.
Ning Shu could easily imagine what these two had been up to in the office, but she didn’t say anything.
Ye Xi went to her own room as soon as she got back. When she came back out, she had changed her outfit.
Jing Shaoze asked Ning Shu gently, “What did you do at home today?”
“Nothing much, some flower arranging and acupuncture. What about you? Was it busy at the company?” asked Ning Shu.
Jing Shaoze said with a smile, “It wasn’t too bad.”
“Oh, then I’ll bring you lunch tomorrow? The company’s lunch definitely doesn’t taste as good as home cooking.” Ning Shu looked towards Jing Shaoze.
“Please don’t…” Jing Shaoze hastily refused. Immediately afterwards, he softened his expression and took Ning Shu’s hand gently as he said, “It’s so hot outside these days, please don’t go all the way to the company. What if something happens to you on the way there? I’ll be really worried.”
Ning Shu lifted her brows and asked, “You really don’t want me to bring you lunch? It’s not a huge deal every once a while. It’s not like I’ll be bringing you food every single day. Maybe I’ll bring you lunch tomorrow, or maybe I’ll do it the day after tomorrow. It’ll depend on the day.”
When Jing Shaoze heard what Ning Shu said, his expression worsened. If she launched sudden attacks like this, wouldn’t he end up getting caught?
Jing Shaoze hurriedly said, “Don’t. It’s so hot outside now. With it being 30 degrees Celsius outside, you might get heatstroke from just stepping outside. Your wellbeing is what I care the most about. As long as you stay safe, it’s fine even if I starve for a couple days. What would torment me the most is if anything happened to you.”
Ning Shu: F*ck, she really wanted to puke…
As she listened to what Jing Shaoze said, her face twitched relentlessly. She was seriously worried that Jing Shaoze would say even more disgusting things so she hastily nodded and said, “Alright, then I won’t bring you food.”
Jing Shaoze finally sighed in relief.
Since he had already enjoyed himself during the day, he didn’t try to come up with an excuse to go to Ye Xi’s room again at night. These days, he went to sleep sharing a bed with Ning Shu.
However, the two of them didn’t talk. Jing Shaoze would only say softly, “Go to sleep, go to sleep, sleep…”
Each morning, he would clean himself up, then warmly help Ning Shu put on her shoes and help comb her hair.
When Ning Shu saw Jing Shaoze like this, she really wanted to just slap him.
However, she didn’t slap him. She just pinched his face, causing a conspicuous red mark to immediately appear.
“Your skin looks so tender that I couldn’t resist pinching it,” said Ning Shu with a smile.
Jing Shaoze shook his head helplessly. “If you want to pinch, just pinch. Why do it so hard? Are you trying to kill your husband?”
Yup, she was trying to kill her husband.
Jing Shaoze looked in the mirror. When he saw the red mark on his face, he said in an annoyed tone, “How am I supposed to face people like this?”
Ning Shu smiled without saying anything.
They headed downstairs, and when Ye Xi saw the ambiguous red mark on Jing Shaoze’s face, her expression dimmed sadly. It looked like she had suffered a blow.
When Jing Shaoze saw Ye Xi’s sad expression, he couldn’t help but frown as he rubbed the red mark on his face. He wanted to explain things to Ye Xi, but there were so many people here. He planned to wait until they got to the company to explain.
