Before Su Xiaomo could tell them that He Jiayu wasn’t her boyfriend, He Jiayu was already telling her, “Go get your things . ”
“What? I…” Su Xiaomo didn’t know what to say, which made He Jiayu frown, thinking that she was too terrified to go back in . He then said, “Wait here . I’ll get them for you . ”
Walking into Su Xiaomo’s bedroom, He Jiayu found a suitcase next to the closet, opened it, and began to put clothes in .
Her school uniform, skirts, T-shirts, jeans… and then…
Color flared in He Jiayu’s fair cheeks when he saw the drawer of girly bras . His fingers shook a little .
Quickly stuffing a few into the suitcase, He Jiayu opened another drawer and took a few underwear out shyly…
He left most of the toiletries behind, since he could always buy her anything she needed . He only picked some skincare items that he thought she would need the most, and the packing was done .
He Jiayu took the suitcase out just as Su Xiaomo finished giving a statement .
Their eyes met and somehow, both felt rather embarrassed .
Su Xiaomo blinked . “Well… shall I get you something to wear?”
The police officers had left and the two of them were alone . At that question, He Jiayu felt like burying his head in the ground .
“Ahem…” He cleared this throat uneasily, which made Su Xiaomo rather embarrassed as well . She found an old shirt and a pair of trousers of her father’s and stuffed them into He Jiayu’s hands .
He Jiayu turned around and quickly put them on, then said in a low voice, “Let’s go . ”
“Isn’t it inappropriate for me to live at your place…” Su Xiaomo was conflicted .
He Jiayu might be shy in some respects, but he was hopelessly stubborn in others .
Taking Su Xiaomo’s hand, he led her into his car, locked the doors, and hit the gas pedal, doing everything in the smoothest motion .
They soon arrived at He Jiayu’s place .
He Jiayu shared the flat with Chi Yuanfeng, but he told Chi Yuanfeng about what happened before coming back, and the latter had immediately left .
Su Xiaomo was looking around in surprise at how neat the place was when He Jiayu said gently, “Don’t just stand there . Here, change your shoes . ”
She came back to herself . Looking down, she saw that He Jiayu had put a pair of slippers at her feet . His tenderness reminded her of a virtuous wife .
So, Cutie He wasn’t just a pretty face . He was so great to live with!
The slippers were meant for guys and a little too big for Su Xiaomo . She scuffed around loudly like a kid wearing her parent’s shoes .
He Jiayu said apologetically, “Sorry, we’ve never had girls over before, so those are all I have for the moment…”
“Don’t worry about it, I adapt very quickly . ” Su Xiaomo chuckled . “Your place is so clean . Do you have a cleaning lady?”
He Jiayu smiled a little shyly . “I do the cleaning myself . ”
“Wow!” Su Xiaomo eyed him in admiration . “Cutie He, do you have time?”
“What do you need?”
“Can you stay at my place for a couple of days and clean my flat while you’re at it?”
He Jiayu blushed again .
Su Xiaomo was much shorter than him, so he was always looking at her from above .
The tip of her nose was red and her cheeks were dotted with freckles . She wasn’t perfect by any means, but to him, she was the best .
“Sure,” he replied .
Su Xiaomo patted him on the shoulder forcefully . “Work hard and do everything you think necessary! Make yourself at home!”
He Jiayu nodded . “Of course . ”
Make yourself at home .
Anything you say .
