It was completely dark in the blink of an eye, and the light from the decorative lamp on the roof shone on the man. Compared to the distant and resplendent lights behind him, this scene looked dreamy.
Ye Shengge closed her eyes and opened them again. Everything was still so clear. His gaze was still burning and gentle, and his slender hand was still in front of her. He looked very patient.
She bit her lips and grabbed his hand. Ji Shiting chuckled and grabbed her hand. “Follow me.”
The warmth of the man’s palm made her certain that everything was real.
The problem was, couldn’t he do it another way if he wanted to create a romance for her? Why did he have to scare her until her limbs went limp? Ye Shengge couldn’t help being angry as she recalled the worry and fear she had felt not long ago. She said coldly, “Sun Ye said something happened to you. I think you’re fine.”
Ji Shiting frowned and said, “Really? Seems like he’s mistaken. I’ll deduct his bonus later.”
Ye Shengge’s eyes widened. “Don’t try to push the blame to Sun Ye! How dare he say that without your permission?”
The man chuckled and said, “It’s hard to say. Ever since he came back from his honeymoon, he’s been more and more careless.”
Ye Shengge was even angrier. She couldn’t help raising her voice, “Ji Shiting! I’m discussing this with you seriously! Do you know that I was so scared that I couldn’t stand up? If you dare scare me again…”
“Shh…” The man interrupted her and pulled her into his embrace. “It’s my fault. I promise there won’t be a next time. Forgive me, okay?”
His original intention was to create a slight contrast so that it could achieve the effect of surprise. However, it seemed that she didn’t feel surprised at all. She was only shocked.
He had only asked Sun Ye to hint at something negative, not to scare her. Perhaps it was because she cared about him too much, so she couldn’t take any hint.
The man couldn’t help feeling guilty and heartbroken. He stroked her body with his right hand.
Ye Shengge’s anger dissipated like a balloon upon hearing his deep and gentle voice.
She snorted and said, “Okay, you said it yourself. There won’t be a next time!”
Ji Shiting smiled and repeated, “Follow me.”
Ye Shengge followed him and saw what seemed like an illusion. She was pleasantly surprised and sweetness surged within her.
“What are you doing?” She asked softly.
Ji Shiting held her hand and stood by the railing. He chuckled and didn’t answer immediately.
He hugged her from behind and embraced her whole body.
“Do you like it?” He smiled and breathed on her face.
The night was cold, but both his embrace and breathing were burning, and warmth seeped into his heart from his skin.
Ye Shengge curled her lips and said, “It’s not like I’ve never been to the roof before. Although the scenery here is indeed good, I’m sick of it. Is this your surprise?”
“Wait a few more minutes.” He smiled and stroked her face.
Ye Shengge couldn’t help feeling curious. Sure enough, after less than a minute, she saw dazzling fireworks that lit up the sky.
