Yun Qing didn’t remember what time she fell asleep that night. When she looked out the window for the last time, it seemed that the sky was already dark. Her whole body was soft and turned into a puddle of water. She had no strength to move and he was hugged tightly by strong sweaty arms as she fell asleep peacefully.
Before she fell asleep, she was still exhausted and reminiscing their moments sweetly and shyly. Unexpectedly, when she woke up at noon, she felt even more dizzy than before going to bed, and she actually had a fever.
Yun Qing was nestled in the quilt, her throat so dry that she couldn’t speak, her cheeks were hot, her vision was blurry, and she called out “Yunshen” pitifully.
Huo Yunshen was so anxious that he wrapped her in a coat and headed to the hospital.
Yun Qing tugged at his sleeves: “No, I probably caught a cold in the wind on the bridge. I just need to take some medicine.”
She blinked and said presciently: “You are not allowed to blame yourself.”
With her boyfriend’s personality, he would probably blame himself for this minor illness, or even for their first intense sexual intercourse.
She admitted that it was her first time, and his reaction was extremely overwhelming. He pestered her and refused to restrain himself. It was indeed a bit excessive, but she did not feel uncomfortable at all. Maybe her body was sore and tired, and she could not resist his passionate demands, but her heart was only full of sweetness.
Huo Yunshen’s mouth tightened, and he carefully fed her the medicine, made porridge and took care of her to eat, wrapped her tightly in a quilt, and forced her to continue sleeping.
Yun Qing muttered: “I can’t sleep…”
Huo Yunshen’s eyebrows were frozen, his heart hurt and he was at a loss as to what to do, and he demanded firmly: “Be obedient.”
He wished that any of her illnesses would transfer to him, even if it was tenfold or a hundredfold.
Yun Qing was cared for by him like a child for a few days. Her cold and fever had long been cured, and her little thoughts began to stir.
She was absolutely right.
As expected, Mr. Huo regarded the bedroom activity as the reason for her illness.
In the days that should have been full of love and affection, he could bear it like a stone, deliberately ignoring all the little hints from her and focusing on taking care of her body.
After being raised by him for more than a week, Yun Qing couldn’t bear to see him in such pain.
She secretly bought a nightgown that was not too cartoony, it was in a sexy style with lace, and wore it at night. She was too embarrassed, so she put on a conservative little bathrobe over it.
“Come here, Qingqing, I will remove your makeup and wash your face.”
Yun Qing responded, ran over obediently, slipped into his arms, and pretended to unintentionally open the collar of the bathrobe a little.
Huo Yunshen lowered his eyes and tightened his fingers.
Not to be outdone, Yun Qing quietly pulled open the belt again, trying to show surprise: “Ah… it’s open, Yunshen, help me tie it up.”
She grabbed his hand and placed it on her waist.
Huo Yunshen’s eyes were filled with emotions as he slowly tied the knot for her.
Yun Qing was frustrated, why could he endure even when she wore lace pyjamas like this?
She pursed her lips and was taken care of by Huo Yunshen to wash her face. Looking at his frown, she rekindled her fighting spirit. She went back to the bedroom first, applied a little warm perfume, and took off the bathrobe that was in the way, and put on a blouse with a zipper in the back.
When Huo Yunshen came in, she quickly showed off her acting skills: “My hair got caught in the zipper…”
He rushed over in two steps and leaned over to handle it for her.
Yun Qing succeeded and said softly: “It’s time to sleep, just take it off for me.”
Huo Yunshen paused and opened the zipper completely.
The girl’s porcelain-like back was half-covered by the thin lace nightgown, which was so beautiful that it made people’s hearts tremble.
Yun Qing’s heart was pounding, and in pursuit of victory, she rubbed his leg with her toes, turned to look at him, and smiled brightly and shrewdly.
Even if Huo Yunshen was a god, he couldn’t stand it.
He raised Yun Qing’s face and asked in a low voice, “Do you really think I can bear it?”
Yun Qing leaned over meekly, looked up and stared at him with a smile: “I just want you to be unable to bear it.”
Huo Yunshen’s weak endurance was completely exhausted, and he pushed her onto the soft pillows behind her, pretending to be vicious: “You don’t have a sense of propriety, are you really not afraid of getting sick again?”
Yun Qing hugged the back of his neck and was extremely confident: “My Yunshen will not let me get sick, he will only…”
She couldn’t say the cruel words, and her face turned red just thinking about it.
Huo Yunshen no longer suppressed himself, he lowered his head and kissed her moist lips.
Early the next morning, Huo Yunshen woke up before dawn, nervously watched Yun Qing open her eyes, and repeatedly tested her body temperature several times to make sure that she was really fine, and then he put down his worries.
Yun Qing was happy: “Now you believe what I said.”
“I believe it,” Huo Yunshen threw the thermometer aside and grabbed the proud little girl, “To prove it, let’s do it again.”
Yun Qing couldn’t live at home every day. There were always a few days a month where she had to stay in the dormitory.
Whenever Huo Yunshen could walk away, he would always pick her up and drop her off. He would hold her hand and walk openly on campus, letting others point and look at her.
He knew that Qingqing was very popular in school, and people who coveted her were lined up. From the first time he appeared in public, his net worth and background had probably been revealed clearly to them.
In the eyes of too many people, he was not worthy of Qingqing.
But with her approval, he didn’t care about other people’s eyes.
Several of Yun Qing’s roommates really cared about her and gathered together to ask: “Isn’t your boyfriend really handsome? None of those suitors can compare to him, but…”
But there was too much content behind it.
“He has no money. Now he can only live in a rental house.”
“I heard that he is an abandoned son of a big family. Will it be dangerous to be with him?”
“He has a bad reputation, and he looks scary in person. He’s too fierce.”
“Yun Qing, he is too possessive of you. He follows you all the time and doesn’t give you much personal space. Aren’t you tired? This kind of feeling is too suffocating. Anyone else would have gone crazy.”
Yun Qing was not angry and said to them seriously: “He is very good and I am not tired.”
“He has that kind of character. I love everything about him. If you feel suffocated,” she smiled, “I think it must be because your love is not equal.”
If there was no equality, you would get bored and want to escape.
If you don’t love him as much as he does, it will be regarded as a heavy burden.
But she just felt distressed. When she was strongly needed by him, she felt happy, as if her life was full.
At the end of the first semester of Yun Qing’s freshman year, there was a rare occasion when Huo Yunshen was too busy with work and had no time to pick her up, so she picked up a dirty stray kitten outside the school gate.
When Huo Yunshen rushed home in a hurry and opened the door, he didn’t wait for the person he missed to pounce on him. Instead, he saw water all over the floor. His wife was carrying the half-washed kitten in embarrassment, looking at him with bent eyes.
“Yunshen, look, I picked it up!”
The little kitten was frightened of him and instinctively hid in Yun Qing’s arms, acting extremely clingy.
Huo Yunshen stared at it coldly, feeling a strong sense of being invaded.
Every time he came back to Qingqing at home, she only saw him. This was the first time that she hugged other creatures and didn’t care about him at all.
Huo Yunshen took the kitten over and didn’t let Qingqing do anything. He washed it in a few times and whispered, “You can let Min Jing raise it.”
Yun Qing took the kitten back in her arms: “Min Jing doesn’t have a girl around him, so he probably won’t be able to take care of him well. He has been wandering for a long time and is weak. He needs some time to recover. When he gets better, can we then give it to someone else?”
She looked longingly, with a little pleading.
No matter how much Huo Yunshen didn’t like it, he couldn’t bear to disappoint Qingqing: “…Okay.”
Yun Qing cheered, hugged the kitten, kissed Huo Yunshen on the face, and teased him: “Don’t be jealous, I only love you.”
The little kitten was very good, there was nothing wrong with it, and he got better soon. However, he was very good at pretending to be weak in front of Yun Qing. Huo Yunshen was unable to say “send him away” many times, and was forced to start a life of fighting for favour.
When Qingqing came back from going out, he and the kitten rushed up to meet her. The cat was more nimble than him and took the lead in occupying Qingqing’s calf, meowing to attract attention.
Yun Qing had no choice but to lift it up first, and then take care of Huo Yunshen. No matter how many times she kissed him, he still felt dissatisfied with his desire.
It became even better at mealtimes. It lay softly and weakly at Yun Qing’s feet, waiting for her to feed him. The originally sweet time was also disturbed, so he had to be included in it.
Huo Yunshen took advantage of Yun Qing’s absence, picked up the kitten, and warned it in a vicious voice: “If you stick to her again, I will send you away.”
The kitten meowed and bared its teeth at him.
Huo Yunshen had a cold face, and after a while he said in a low voice: “Don’t compete with me for her.”
The kitten didn’t meow this time, but paused and gently licked him very reservedly.
Yun Qing discovered that the kitten became super independent since then. It hung out lazily on the cat climbing frame every day and was no longer so clingy. It could eat and drink freely, live a leisurely and comfortable life, and glance at everyone at home when it had nothing to do, while licking his paws restrainedly.
Huo Yunshen finally let go of the thorns all over his body, and he was even willing to feed the cat. At night, he let him sleep in the cat’s nest in the living room, closed the bedroom door, and had Qingqing all to himself.
Yun Qing laughed and teased him: “You are still jealous of a kitten.”
“Am,” he admitted. “Of whatever steals your attention.”
Yun Qing kissed the corner of his mouth and pulled him to lie on the bed: “It’s still early today, let’s watch a movie.”
Rather than going to the cinema, Yun Qing preferred to cuddle up with him and watch movies at home. Huo Yunshen bought a projector that could reflect the movie on the snow-white roof and walls.
It didn’t matter what you looked at, what mattered was being intimate with her.
Huo Yunshen didn’t pay attention to the movie at first, his mind was all on Qingqing. Later, when he saw her eyes were wet, he turned to the screen.
In the story, a loving couple was torn apart, and the heroine accidentally lost her memory. When she met her former boyfriend again, she treated him as a stranger.
His heart was inexplicably cramped, and he was overwhelmed by sudden fear.
After the movie ended, Huo Yunshen was speechless for a long time. He could only hug the person in his arms, breathing heavily.
Yun Qing was still in a sad mood and poked his cold face: “What are you thinking about?”
He was silent and gritted his teeth slightly.
Yun Qing suddenly realized, pressed her chest more tightly, and asked a little funnily: “Are you worried that I will also forget you?”
Huo Yunshen bit her lip deeply and resisted in a soft voice: “Don’t talk nonsense!”
Yun Qing laughed at how cute he was, but felt sour in her heart.
He was always afraid of losing her.
She said softly: “Don’t be afraid, if I really dare to forget you, you come catch me back, tie me up in the bedroom, and don’t let me go anywhere. I will only see you and think about you every day until I remember everything.”
Huo Yunshen couldn’t think of that kind of scene, and his heart ached, so he pretended to be relaxed and said: “I really know how to tie you up.”
Yun Qing was afraid that he would be secretly sad, so she simply found a silk scarf and said, “It’s okay to tie me up now. I won’t run away anyway.”
Huo Yunshen looked into the little girl’s loving eyes, tied her slender wrists together, then slowly untied them, teaching her step by step in a low voice: “Only I can untie this knot.”
Yun Qing leaned on his shoulder: “You can do it now.”
In the quiet night, the scene outside the window was dark.
Huo Yunshen hugged the person he loved deeply and asked in a low voice: “Qingqing, will you be annoyed if I occupy you like this, worry about gains and losses, and don’t give you freedom?”
Yun Qing shook her head, sat on his lap, buried her cheek in the warm crook of his neck, and said softly: “Although the knot you tied for me has been untied, I still want to stay in the small cage.”
Huo Yunshen felt a lump in his throat.
She didn’t give him a chance to think about it, and smiled very sweetly: “It’s a small cage named Huo Yunshen. I live in it willingly. I just want to love you in this life and don’t want to escape.”
