Their was silence for a long time, with both of them looking into each other's eyes, not saying anything. No words were required to express their emotions right now.
Finally when she could not take it anymore, forgetting everything else, she pounced on him and locked her arms around his neck, hugging him tightly.
Wu Zhang was taken aback with such reactions, after a few seconds he returned back to his senses and wrapped his arms around her, pulling her closer in a tight grip.
Song Jia was sobbing softly, and Wu Zhang got confused, "Why are you crying?"
Song Jia answered by crying louder.
"What happened? Is their a problem?" He asked softly patting her back with his big palm.
This time she answered between her hiccups, "I.. I am.. too... happy."
Wu Zhang was amazed, he had done everything to make her happy, but now he realised that this silly woman in front of him loved crying. She would cry when she gets sad, and she would cry even more when she is happy. She just loved crying.
He simply patted her bare back for some time, and when he realised his little friend down south has started becoming naughty, he pulled her backward and looked at her tender face, which has now become red and wet.
He wiped the tears on her face with the pad of his thumb and no one knows when he suddenly pulled her face close and locked her lips with his. He kissed her gently, savoring the test of her rose petal like lips slowly. Song Jia who had not at all expected it, did not retaliate. Infact she sub conciously tightened her grip on his neck and opened her mouth to kiss him back, her nails dugging in his neck. His tongue entered her mouth slowly, meeting her tongue and teasing it. He explored her mouth with his tongue while his hands pulled her closer by her waist. Their breath became heavy and the room was filled with wet sounds of kissing.
The wait staff, who have been appointed to serve them, all smiled gently among themselves when they saw the two people immersing into themselves, and slowly disperesd from the reataurant to go back to the kitchen, leaving the couple alone.
After kissing for an indefinite amount of time, Wu Zhang finally let go of Song Jia when he realised that she was suffocating. Her lipstick had smudged and her lips were slightly numb. She was panting softly and their was a hint of shyness in her eyes. She was looking at the floor and her cheeks were flushed red.
Wu Zhang could not help smiling when he saw her feeling so shy. He took her hand in his and patted the back of her palm. With the other hand he lifted her chin to make her look in his eyes and afyer mustering some courage, he finally spoke.
"Song Jia, the day I saw you for the first time, I fell in love with you."
Hearing those words, the expression on Song Jia's face changed slightly. Before she could say anything, he continued, "I don't mean to scare you so just listen first. To be honest I was not going to confess it today but now I think I should. I just want to let you know that I love you and with every passing day my love for you keeps quadrupling. Every time I look at you, I fall a little more in love with you. I know its too early for me to say it today, and you don't have to answer it if you don't want to. But I will wait for the day you will express your love to me. But before that I also want to tell you that I would never break your heart, and all my love would always belong to you fore.. mmmm."
Before he could complete his long confession, Song Jia had pulled him closer by his collar and was kissing him passionately. Tears were streaming down her face but she didn't stop. Wu Zhang was thrilled by her kiss and cupped her small face in his rough hands and returned the kiss to her.
"Wu Zhang, I trust your love. The day you went along with me to save Wei Xin for me, risking your life, the time you let me cry out my heart in front of you, and heard me so patiently, you have already pulled the strings of my heart. If you promise to stick by me, I would always be by your side." She did not know if she loved him or not, but after hearing him, she had a feeling that she could trust his love. He knew she was broken and he knew she might not be able to love him back. But he still chose to love her and give her all the happiness. The sense of security he gave her when he was around, was something she could not put in words. She decided to listen to her heart that was beating rapidly, telling her to accept his love and she decided to take the chance.
