In the blink of an eye, it was the night. As always Xiu Mei was sleeping in Feng Jianyu's arms, due to medicines it was already difficult for her to hold back her sleep and above that Jianyu's arms were another level sedative for her.
But Jianyu was trying to prevail over the wandering thoughts about his parents' involvement and Xiu Mei's explanation regarding his mother's mental situation. He keeps on adjusting his position, unable to fall asleep.
This was the first time when even Xiu Mei's calming fragrance failed to do the magic work. His gaze swept across her angelic face, so peaceful like an innocent baby.
"Sleep, coz when you'll wake up, you'll move mountains." His lips landed on her forehead, lingering there before he reluctantly pulled himself.
"Mmmm… I cannot move mountains without my monster's help." Probably because Jianyu was restless, Xiu Mei was not able to sleep. Her eyelashes fluttered as she looked up at him in half sleepy state.
"Why haven't you slept yet?" He asked.
Xiu Mei who was already tired of Jianyu's tossing and turning pouted her lips and scrambled over his body. "You stole my line!"
He chuckled, tried to tuck back her messy hair from sleep, "You should sleep. My weirdo father has asked you to come at 5:00."
"Same goes for you! I'm sure this worrywart monster will never allow me to go alone. Am I right? Or am I right?" She pulled the blanket above, only letting her small head peeking out.
He nodded, stroking her back lightly to make her sleep again but she childishly wiggled her hips, letting out a voice of protest, "Don't! It's my turn."
Before Jianyu could understand the meaning of her words, her soft warm lips landed on his. His eyes widened.
She wrapped her up around his strong frame and started to plant baby kisses on his face starting from the jaw, covering every inch of his flawless face like instead of singing a lullaby she discovered her own method.
"What are you doing?" He asked. He was surprised that she was careful in her move to not go anywhere near his manhood to arouse him or do something naughty that she always does.
"Shh… just loosen up! Close your eyes and feel it. It's not a rule that it should always be you who'd coax me to sleep; sometimes I can do the same. Now be a goodby, and close your eyes." Saying she placed her soft palm over his eyes while running her other hand through his hair. She placed delicate kisses on his face, humming an old folk song that was barely audible.
Within a few minutes, he was no longer moving; his breathing gradually becomes clear and equal. She gently removed her palm to check. Surely the man was finally asleep.
She smiled and relaxed, snuggling on his chest, drawing the blanket all over her so that Feng Jianyu does not catch a cold.
The next morning they got ready and left the house in Feng Jianyu's bulletproof SUV along with a team of highly trained bodyguards, among them a few were Lu Xion's trained men who were here to protect the lady of the Zeng house.
They were not any ordinary men but inhumane killers who wouldn't blink an eye before killing an entire army with bare hands.
Although a ride with chopper would've given Xiu Mei an hour's sleep more, in that case, Jianyu's presence would easily be noticed by Feng Dingxiong. His intention was clear- to stay in the car, listen to their conversation through the microphone, and protect her through the distance.
He didn't want to give any reason to Feng Dingxiong to delay the important conversation.
On the way, sitting beside Feng Jianyu, Xiu Mei was having a difficult time to finish the glass of milk and sandwich as arranged by him; she has already cursed a certain monster a thousand times in her heart.
Clad in a black suit, Feng Jianyu was silently working on his laptop, doing the backlog work that had accumulated. He was aware of her tantrums when it comes to drinking milk, so he chose to ignore her till she finishes breakfast.
Very quickly the car entered the castle following the path that she had crossed a few times before, yet it gave her a distant and cold vibe. Maybe because this castle does not belong to Jianyu anymore.
Not far away, Feng Dingxiong's elegant and suave figure was seated under the giant canopy in the middle of the garden, leisurely sipping morning tea.
"I'll go!" Xiu Mei unfastened the seatbelt but before her fingers could touch the handle, she turned back and suddenly pounced on him to give a kiss on lips. "No matter what, I'm going to cling on to you forever and ever and will make sure that you fulfill your promise of giving me six little Jianyus. You better remember this! Otherwise, I've many ways to force myself on you."
Before Jianyu could come out of the shock, the wild chipmunk had already gotten off the car, all he saw was her departing back….
He was at a loss of words….
A smile unknowingly came on his lips….
Which man would not love such an adorable wife!
Feng Dingxiong smirked, as expected it was not the Little Alice or Xiu Mei that came to meet him, but the woman that was walking towards him wearing a red Jumpsuit pairing it with high heels was the President XM, the genius woman who founded a company like R-Tech when she was just a teenager.
What an extraordinary woman!
As she approached closer, he concealed the look of appreciation and pulled on an indifferent face.
"Goodmorning, Mr. Feng"
"Did President XM come all the way just to wish me good morning?" Feng Dingxiong waved his hand to the chair across him and gestured the servant to serve tea for the lady.
Xiu Mei's face did not show a hint of expression as she looked at the man, "That's for Mr. Feng to tell why I'm INVITED here early in the morning. I just accepted your invitation." She emphasized on the word invited to remind him of who called whom. It's not that she was any less desperate to meet him, but right now she was here to get answers, and to get that he has to know that President XM is not a pushover.
F*ck everything! She'll stomp over him if he did not give answers.
"What do you know about my wife?" He blurted as he saw her shook her head at the servant who was serving tea, a gesture that considered disrespectful. The servant waited for further instruction, but Feng Dingxiong dismissed him with a wave of a hand.
"Is there something that should I know about Mrs. Feng? Can you please elaborate?" She asked. She pretended to look at the man, but secretly her eyes scanned the area. At the entrance of the huge castle, she saw a familiar figure of Assistant Jun who was looking at their direction intently.
"I'm talking about the message you've sent. What is the meaning of the last line?" He gritted his teeth; this woman was very difficult to understand. She was irritating him by countering his questions with her own questions.
