Chapter 1003: Smile for Me

The woman’s lips were almost pressed against his neck, and as she spoke, her warm breath sprayed on his skin, making him feel a sharp sense of touch.
It was as if an electric shock had flown throughout his body. Ji Shiting slowly took a deep breath and said, “You mean you don’t plan to leave?”
“You don’t seem very happy either…” Ye Shengge suddenly smiled. “That’s true. If I leave, you’ll at most be a bit uncomfortable or a bit disappointed… But you won’t be sad. So, you won’t be very happy if I stay.”
“No.” Ji Shiting denied it quickly. “I want you to stay.”
Ye Shengge wasn’t satisfied with that answer. “Are you ecstatic now?”
Ji Shiting frowned as if he was considering whether the word ‘ecstatic’ was appropriate.
“Forget it…” Ye Shengge smiled self-deprecatingly. “You don’t have to answer me.”
“I’m indeed happy,” the man said. “It’s just that the threshold is higher than before, but I’ll still be happy and angry.”
Ye Shengge bit her lips and said, “Because you can still sleep with me, right?”
The man thought for a bit and said, “That’s one thing…”
“Ji Shiting!” Ye Shengge interrupted him angrily.
He smiled and said hoarsely, “I don’t want to lie to you.”
Ye Shengge was a bit upset.
She had realized a long time ago that he indeed didn’t want to lie nowadays. Most of the time, she would feel much better if he played along and coaxed her, but the man was too honest.
That was why he was so quiet. Obviously, he knew that some words would anger her.
“You don’t have to force yourself.” Ye Shengge sighed. “I can tell… So the more you force yourself, the more upset I am.”
Ji Shiting said after a while, “Not forced. At least not to me.”
Ye Shengge snorted and said, “It’s just a stretch for me.”
He treated “being good to her” as a mission. He believed that he should do it, so he didn’t feel reluctant, but it wasn’t the case for her.
Ji Shiting said, “I’ll think of a way to adjust.”
Ye Shengge continued to hum, but she didn’t say anything. She turned her head to the side and saw the swing not far away. She suddenly said, “I want to ride that.”
The swing was a toy for the two kids but it was very sturdy, so Ye Shengge’s request was reasonable.
Ji Shiting followed her gaze and didn’t object.
He walked over, put her on the swing, grabbed her hands and put them on the ropes. “Hold tight.”
Ye Shengge looked up at him.
The man’s eyes were dark, and he looked calm and serious. He noticed her gaze and raised an eyebrow.
“Show me a smile, Shiting,” she said.
Ji Shiting frowned, finding her request ridiculous.
“Smile,” she said in displeasure.
She was getting tipsy and willful again after sitting down.
Ji Shiting looked at her helplessly and smiled.
“Is that okay?”
