Chapter 335: His Boiling Blood
Translator: Lonelytree Editor: Millman97
The moment Mubai returned to the small villa, he received news of Xinghe's recovery. The first time the maid informed him, he thought he was dreaming. After a second confirmation from the maid, he finally believed that Xia Xinghe had really awakened!
He quickly dashed to meet her, there was a natural spring in his step. As he got closer to Xinghe's room, his heart beat quickened. It had been a long time since he felt so nervous…
He felt like a kid going to meet his crush.
He pushed open the room door and when he saw Xinghe sitting quietly in front of the computer, he released the breath that he didn't realize he was holding. He stared intensely at her, not willing to avert his eyes as he stepped closer to her. It was as if he was afraid she might disappear in front of his eyes if he didn't pay absolute attention.
Xinghe heard his approaching footsteps. She lifted her head and looked straight at him. "Thank you for everything."
Xinghe knew that without asking that it was him who had been taking care of her when she was unconscious. She was not good with expressing her emotions but she would take note whenever someone was nice towards her. She realized he had been lending his aid whenever things got slightly out of hand, she was appreciative of that. Even during this recent predicament, he helped her unconditionally, without asking for anything in return.
Her previous prejudice against him had completely disappeared. In fact, she was starting to warm to him. If he needed any help in the future, she would return the favor.
"Xia Xinghe…" Mubai called her name gently as he stared, enraptured by her.
"Yes?" Xinghe asked him in return.
"Xia Xinghe…" he repeated as a big smile bloomed on his face, his pupils were even shaking. "It really is you."
Xinghe looked carefully at him and confirmed, "Yes, it is me."
Mubai suddenly leaned forward and his fiery lips touched hers without warning! Xinghe widened her eyes in surprise—
She didn't expect such a response from him. When she realized what had happened, she tried to evade but Mubai's hands had her gripped in a tight lock.
His lips pressed down hard and they burned with irrepressible passion…
When his tongue got some stray ideas, Xinghe finally shoved him forcefully away. Her face was a mixture of shock, disbelief, and bewilderment.
Mubai was panting slightly, his gaze blazing with insuppressible emotion. Like a scorching flame, he seemed to be melting her within his gaze.
His heart jumped violently, the sudden kiss boiling his blood.
Even a distance away, Xinghe could hear his beating heart. She felt curious, why was he so nervous when she was the one being taken advantage of?
The two stared at each other wordlessly for two seconds. Mubai leaned in for another kiss but Xinghe averted her face and locked eyes on the computer screen instead.
"It's good that you're here. See whether you recognize the person," she said in a calm voice as if nothing had happened. 5 Best Chinese Romance Books of 2018 So Far
