She smiled to herself and her mind started wandering on different ways she could possibly use to confess her love to him. Ever since they started dating, Wu Zhang had only once told her that he loved her and never after that. She knew he was waiting for her to take the second step at her own pace without pushing her. And that is why he made sure to never make it awkward for her by saying it again and again until she confessed her feelings to him first. All he did was to silently make her fall in love with him by his actions. True it was said, ''actions speak louder than words" because Wu Zhang's actions screamed of his feelings for her every day.
At this point, she didn't know how long she had been sitting on the bed, spaced out. And when she snapped out of her thought, she found, her hands had worked on their own accord to undo her shoes and had, later on, moved on to her hair to pull out the pins that were stuck in it to secure her hair in the same position.
After sticking the pins into the pincushion placed on her dresser, she stood tall in front of the mirror observing her reflection. One by one, she removed all the pieces of jewelry from her body and placed it on the dresser. She then gathered her long hair and tied it into a loose messy bun at the back of her head, before reaching for the zipper of her dress. Just as she pulled the zipper down to her lower back and was about to loosen it a bit, to let it fall, the door to her room was opened. Song Jia got startled with this sudden intrusion and hurriedly caught the dress to pull it back up before it could fall down.
Wu Zhang who had unlocked the door, stood there dumbstruck, not really knowing what to do. When he had entered with the file about Yue Ling, he had caught the glimpse of Song Jia's smooth and fair back that was bare before Song Jia had pulled the dress back up. Even that quick glimpse was enough for him to feel his little friend arising and his throat turning dry.
"You needed something?" Song Jia decided to speak first to break the awkward silence. In the meantime, she took her hand back to the zipper to pull it up, but just then her hair got loose and a strand got stuck in the zipper.
