After Ji Juechuan finished speaking, it was as if the pause button had been pressed in the room, and there was no sound for a long time.

Yan Yan never thought that the engagement banquet would come earlier than the dissolution of the engagement.

Could it be that the plot in the book was destined not to be changed, so the engagement with Ji Juechuan had to go on?

He couldn’t turn his head around and sat on the bed hugging the quilt while staring blankly at Ji Juechuan, without replying for a long time.

Ji Juechuan frowned without hearing Yan Yan’s response and looked at the unresponsive person on the bed.

“Yan Yan?”

Yan Yan was brought back to his senses by the shout, he let out a soft “um” and lay back on the bed.

He had no reason to refuse the engagement, so he could only think of a way to make Ji Juechuan change his mind, and it would be best for him to directly dismiss the idea of holding an engagement banquet.

Ji Juechuan saw Yan Yan’s reaction and pursed his thin lips.

Yan Yan really didn’t want others to know about their engagement.

No matter what the reason was, this knowledge made him uncomfortable like punching a ball of cotton.

Ji Juechuan pretended not to see anything wrong with him, and said in a calm voice, “Did you have a good day in mind?”

The muffled voice came out from under the quilt: “No.”

Ji Juechuan was silent for a while, his dark eyes were dark and emotionless, then he threw the towel he wiped his hair with on the chair and sat down on the edge of the bed.

He thought he wouldn’t be affected by these little things, but now his whole body exuded low pressure, and his face had sunk, almost writing the word unhappiness on his face.

The hand on the bed was pulled twice suddenly, he lowered his head to look, the unhappiness in his black eyes had not been put away, which startled Yan Yan who had just got out of the quilt.

Yan Yan bit his lower lip, mustered up the courage to continue hooking his knuckle hand as he asked, “Honey, can I choose any time?”

“Okay.” The low pressure on Ji Juechuan’s body dissipated a little, and he looked down at him.

Yan Yan thought for a while, “Let’s choose next Friday.”

He just thought about it, Friday was a working day, and Ji Juechuan would have to go to the company that day, so he must not be able to spare time.

If he insisted on arranging the engagement banquet on a working day, with Ji Juechuan’s workaholic personality, he might put the engagement banquet on hold and wait until he had time.

“Well, then next Friday.” Ji Juechuan nodded slightly.

Yan Yan was stunned for a moment, he agreed?

After choosing the date of the engagement banquet, Ji Juechuan’s frowning eyebrows were released. He lifted the quilt and lay down next to Yan Yan. The body temperature of the two quickly intertwined.

“I’ve arranged the process for the past few days, and if you have any ideas, just let me know.”

Yan Yan rolled his eyes a few times, and then he had another idea.

He moved closer to Ji Juechuan’s direction, resting his chin on Ji Juechuan’s shoulder, “Husband, who will we invite to the engagement banquet?”

The young porcelain white chin rested lightly on his shoulder, and his warm breath sprayed lightly on his neck when he spoke. Ji Juechuan narrowed his eyes, “I will invite our parents and some relatives on both sides.”

Engagement banquets usually did not invite friends, of course Yan Yan knew this truth, but he pretended not to understand, and blinked lightly.

“Aren’t you going to invite your friends?”

Although Ji Juechuan proposed to hold an engagement banquet, Yan Yan felt that he still didn’t want to let too many people know about their engagement, let alone invite his friends to their engagement banquet.

Sure enough, after he finished asking this sentence, Ji Juechuan paused for a long time.

After a long while, he replied to him: “Most of my friends are abroad, not many of them in China. If you wish, I will invite them.” Then, those dark eyes looked at him again: “You will also invite your friends over?”

This question was thrown back unexpectedly, Yan Yan was taken aback, how could he have any friends?

If Ji Juechuan was talking about those people tonight, he should have seen that those people were not his friends at all.

Could it be that Ji Juechuan was talking about the original owner’s former friends?

Yan Yan was startled, he had no memory of the original owner’s former friends at all, if Ji Juechuan really asked him to invite those friends, he might reveal his secrets.

Thinking of this, Yan Yan stepped back a little guiltily, and was wondering if it was an illusion, since he felt Ji Juechuan moved his body, as if to make up the distance between them again.

He was born with broad shoulders and long legs, and his figure was much larger than Yan Yan. Now he turned sideways to look at Yan Yan, covering the light of the bedside lamp, exuding a feeling full of oppression.

“My friends are very busy on weekdays, so they don’t have time to come.” Yan Yan vaguely said, pinching the corner of his clothes with his hands hidden under the quilt.

“What about that friend from the company last time?” Ji Juechuan looked straight into his eyes, and because of the backlight, those black eyes became darker and darker.

Yan Yan thought for a while before realizing that he was talking about Sheng Mowen.

Invite the protagonist to their engagement banquet?

He bit his lower lip, thinking it was not feasible.

Seeing his hesitation, Ji Juechuan said again: “If you invite him to the engagement banquet, I can give him a leave of absence.”

Yan Yan’s eyebrows were wrinkled in worry, this was not a question of whether he would get a leave or not.

The entanglement on his face was too obvious, Ji Juechuan lowered his eyes, trying to ignore the unhappiness in his heart.

His neck was suddenly encircled by soft arms, and Yan Yan’s face was pressed against his chest, half-hanging on him like a dodder flower[1].

“Husband, it’s better not to invite friends. It will not be too late to invite friends at the wedding.”


This word made Ji Juechuan’s heart skip a beat.

In the previous twenty years of his life, he never thought that the word wedding would have anything to do with him, but now that he heard these two words from Yan Yan’s mouth, his heart was like a stone thrown into a calm lake causing ripples unstoppably.

Before waiting for his reaction, Yan Yan raised his head from his chest, blinked his long eyelashes lightly: “Husband?”

He continued to rest his head lightly on his chest, listening to the powerful heartbeat in his chest.

When Ji Juechuan spoke, he could feel a slight vibration in his chest, and his voice sounded deeper.

“Is there anything else you want?”

“I’ll think about it.” Yan Yan leaned on his chest and thought about it seriously, his eyebrows frowned slightly, and his ruddy lips pursed.

Looking at his serious expression, Ji Juechuan suddenly wanted to reach out and poke his soft face, he even moved his fingers, but finally resisted the urge.

“By the way, we haven’t bought engagement rings yet!” Yan Yan raised his head, his faint eyes sparkling.

He could take this opportunity to speak loudly, highlighting that the original owner married Ji Juechuan for his money, which was also one of the important reasons why Ji Juechuan hated the original owner.

But before he could say anything else, Ji Juechuan took his words to heart: “Let’s pick them out together in a few days.”

Thinking of the past, Yan Yan seemed to like these jewelry very much, so he paused, and said: “If you like it, you can buy more.”

Buy more.

Yan Yan’s soft lips parted slightly, forgetting what he just wanted to say.

Ji Juechuan was willing to buy a few more rings, and the lion’s mouth he just planned seemed not to be worth mentioning.

“Is there anything else?” Ji Juechuan lowered his head and stared at Yan Yan who was leaning on his chest. It was the first time he was so patient, as if no matter what Yan Yan said, he would agree.

Yan Yan thought for a while, then obediently shook his head: “No more.”

He didn’t dare to ask any more, for some reason, he always felt that no matter how outrageous his request was, Ji Juechuan might agree to it.

This time the engagement banquet could definitely not be escaped, so it was better not to dig holes for himself.

But since the engagement banquet was going to be held, he still needed to tell Mrs. Yan so that she could spare time on that day.

Of course, such an important matter could not be discussed on the phone, so he would have to go back to Yan’s house tomorrow.

“Husband, are you free tomorrow night?”

Yan Yan slightly raised his head to look at Ji Juechuan. He had put a hand on his lower back at some point, and the scalding heat stuck to his skin through the thin fabric.

He just thought it was Ji Juechuan who didn’t pay attention, so he put it on his waist without paying attention, and he didn’t realize that Ji Juechuan was almost half-circling him in his arms now.

In the beginning, the two of them slept on the same bed, as if a dividing line had been drawn in the middle, dividing the bed into two neatly without interfering with each other.

He didn’t know when it started but the dividing line in the middle of the bed was no longer so obvious, Yan Yan was used to Ji Juechuan’s smell, and after falling asleep, he got closer and closer to him. Sometimes when he woke up in the morning, half of his body was stuck to Ji Juechuan’s body.

It was the same now, Ji Juechuan’s smell was too familiar to him, and now he didn’t notice it when he was wrapped in his arms, and he still raised his face to talk to the person. “Well, what’s the matter?”

Ji Juechuan’s eyes darkened a little due to his unguarded appearance, and the hand on his soft waist lightly rubbed it.

“I’m going home tomorrow, can you come over at night?”

According to the rules, before the engagement banquet, Ji Juechuan should go home with him for a meal, right?

Although Yan Yan didn’t know much about this, he also understood that Ji Juechuan had never been to his house before the engagement, which was a bit out of order.

Ji Juechuan wanted to say that he could go there together with him in the morning, but felt that he would seem too hasty, so he just pursed his lower lip and nodded slightly.

The two talked for a long time, and it was getting late, so Yan Yan yawned a little, said good night to Ji Juechuan, and soon fell asleep leaning against him.

After his breathing stabilized, Ji Juechuan tightened his hands on his lower back. It was originally in a half-circle position in his arms, but now he hugged him tighter, as if encircling Yan Yan inside his arms.

The soft body was attached to his body, and the pleasant fragrance seemed to infect his body. Ji Juechuan closed his eyes, feeling an unprecedented peace of mind.

He didn’t think there was anything wrong with his actions, but it was because the fragrance of Yan Yan’s body could make him fall asleep feeling at ease, so he just wanted to get closer, and there was no other reason besides that.

With the warm and soft jade-like body in his arms, he soon fell asleep.
