“Be careful!” He was scared sh*tless.

“Yeah, hold on for a minute.” Xia Ruoxin dashed past him urgently. Gao Yi sat on the sofa with his arms crossed. Women were really hard to understand. He shook his head, smiling. Well, this recklessness was better than her sobbing just now. He placed a hand to his chest. He still felt pain radiating from it.

Oh, Ruoxin, my heart no longer belongs to me. Tell me, what should I do?

Xia Ruoxin searched frantically for the paper bag. She remembered she had left it somewhere when she came back, but she couldn’t find it anymore. She lifted her hand to her forehead. Her memory had worsened recently. Was she getting old?

She entered her room and searched everywhere for it, but she couldn’t find it. She searched Rainy’s room, too, and even Gao Yi’s, but—at last—she just walked out dejectedly. Seemed like she wouldn’t be able to give him the present now. She really didn’t know where she had left the shirt she bought.

“What are you looking for? I’ll help you.” Gao Yi stood up and asked her curiously.

“A blue paper bag. I forgot where I placed it.” Xia Ruoxin’s hand was still pressed against her forehead, but she still couldn’t remember where on earth she left it. She remembered carrying it in her hand, and then she went on to prepare dinner in a daze and almost cut her finger. She had no recollection of where she left the shirt.

“A blue plastic bag?” Gao Yi repeated.

“Yeah.” Xia Ruoxin nodded. It was indeed blue, for she remembered the color of the bag.

“You mean this?” Gao Yi grabbed that bag from behind him. It was always on the sofa. He didn’t know what was in it, and so he just left it to one side as he was afraid he would squash it.

“Ah!” That’s it! Xia Ruoxin took the bag from Gao Yi’s hand in a hurry and hugged it tightly in her arms. Should she lose it, she wouldn’t be able to give it to Gao Yi; and she would have regretted to death. This was the first time she gave him a present.

That’s right. Her eyes met Gao Yi’s smiling ones, and she placed the bag back in his hands.

It dawned on Gao Yi when he saw the bag returned to his hands.

“You mean this is for me?”

“Yeah, I bought it for you.” Xia Ruoxin nodded once as her face went scarlet. She was slightly anticipating. She wasn’t sure if he would like it since she didn’t have any experience.

Gao Yi’s lips curved delightedly. It was the most special gift he had received. He was pleasantly surprised that Ruoxin had also learned to give him presents.

He opened the bag to reveal a light gray shirt inside. His eyes brightened. She remembered that he had cut his shirt open accidentally with the scalpel.

“Do you like it?” Xia Ruoxin asked Gao Yi, who was still looking at the shirt. She was worried that he wouldn’t.

“Of course, I like it. This color is exactly what I like.” Gao Yi ran his fingers over the shirt lightly. The soft fabric and the plain color fit his usual style perfectly.

“That’s great.” Xia Ruoxin heaved a sigh of relief. It was better to have bought a more fitting gift than a more expensive one, but what’s more important was the thought behind it. Of course, this shirt wasn’t that cheap either.

“I’ll try it on.” Gao Yi stood up and was prepared to unbutton his shirt. Xia Ruoxin’s jaw dropped, and she hurriedly looked the other way. It was inappropriate to look even though it was not like she hadn’t seen it before.

Gao Yi chuckled. “I’ll go in and change.” He knew that her face would be as red as a ripe tomato if he changed there. She was already a mother, but she wore her heart on her sleeve. She was really as cute as her daughter.

He walked in and took off his clothes, putting on the shirt. It fitted him perfectly.

He opened the door and leaned against it. “Don’t worry, it fits me a lot.” That casual look was very appealing. He could give off the comfortable aura of a spring breeze forever, without any pressure as long as he wanted to.

He walked over to Xia Ruoxin’s side and then bent down slightly so he was eye-level with her. “Ruoxin, it’s been a long time since someone has bought me a shirt. I’m really happy.” He placed his hand on her face and stroked gently. “Would you buy me my shirts forever? I’ll pay for it.” He said half-jokingly as he broke out into a smile, but there was a seriousness underlying it.

Xia Ruoxin was stunned for a moment. She didn’t know how to answer.

Forever was a long time. She wasn’t sure if she could do it.

“Don’t worry. I won’t pressure you. I’ll give you time.” Gao Yi was slightly disappointed, but he still smiled. He said that he would give her time to consider, no matter how long.

Moreover, he believed that she wouldn’t make him wait for a very long time.

She had already told him everything about her, which means that she had started to trust in him. It was also her first step to opening her heart.

Xia Ruoxin nodded and looked at the buttons on his shirt. She reached a hand out to button one he had left unbuttoned. Gao Yi leaned further in to give her access, his smiling eyes as warm as the sun.

At the dining table, Song Wan’s eyes darted between her son and Li Manni, feeling something was not quite right. Even though her son was as expressionless as always, he looked more indifferent than before.

As for Li Manni, all she did was eat her rice tastelessly, not even touching the side dishes.

“Mom, Dad, I’m going to work.” Chu Lui put down the bowl in his hands and stood up. He looked at his watch. It was almost time. If not for his parents’ sudden visit, he would have left ages ago.

“Ah Lui, hold on a minute. We need to talk.” Song Wan stood up hurriedly and pulled her son to the side before asking. “Ah Lui, did you quarrel with Manni?” She knew her son well. No matter how calm he appeared, they could tell that something was up between the couple from his eyes.
