Chapter 139: Insomnia
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“No, it’s just that I’m not used to it. You know that I don’t remember what happened in the past and I’ve been sleeping by myself for this period of time after I woke up from my coma.”
“If you’re worried about that, please be assured that I would never touch you without your permission.”
Xia Qingyi smiled. “No, I’m just really used to sleeping alone now.”
Han Liang seemed to want to convince her more as Xia Qingyi said again, “Can you let me slowly adjust by myself before I regain my memories? It won’t take too long.”
Han Liang said, “Alright, I’ll wait for you.” He looked at Xia Qingyi, who was standing at the door. He slowly laughed again, “Nian Nian, come over.”
Xia Qingyi replied a second later, “Yes? What’s wrong?”
Xia Qingyi walked over to stand next to Han Liang, who was reading on the bed. Han Liang suddenly sat straight up as he hooked an arm around her shoulders to pull her down. His lips moved forward for a kiss.
Alarm bells rang in Xia Qingyi’s head. She did not have the time to think too much as she pushed Han Liang away straight away. Xia Qingyi had pushed him back on the bed before his lips had even touched her.
Han Liang did not seem to expect such a big reaction from her as he looked at her in shock.
Xia Qingyi’s heart was still thumping crazily. “I’m sorry… I didn’t mean to.”
Han Liang sat up. He was a little disappointed. “It’s alright. It’s just that I thought that you would remember our daily goodnight kiss.”
Xia Qingyi did not know how to continue the conversation as she stood awkwardly at the side of the bed.
“Never mind. It’s late now, you should go to sleep.” Han Liang said.
Nevertheless, Xia Qingyi did not go to sleep as Han Liang had said. At the very moment she had lain on the bed after returning to that bedroom, she felt that insomnia, which had not visited her for a while, would come again.
In the end, it was really as Xia Qingyi had thought. At about 1 A.M, she had had enough and sat up on the bed.
She was already starting to miss Mo Han, after the ninth hour of leaving him.
She thought about him cooking for her, thought about him buying red bean pastries for her, thought about how he had sat by his bed and watched her sleep when she could not sleep. She was even starting to miss the way he complained about her walking too slow with his eyebrows furrowed.
Xia Qingyi stood up. She did not turn on the lights as she pulled open the curtains. The cold moonlight shone into the room. Xia Qingyi sat on the floor, resting her head on her hands as she watched the cloudy moon. She thought about how Mo Han had accompanied her to watch the moon that day. He had even said that he would always be with her, until she had found her family.
He had done that. He had done it pretty well. In fact, he did everything very well.
Xia Qingyi stood up again and pushed open the door of the guest room. With light steps, she walked to the living room on the first floor. She walked to the window and pulled open the curtain slightly to make the room look a little brighter so that she would not end up falling.
She slowly touched every corner of the room, from the sofa to the tables and chairs. She had even touched the walls. She measured every detail of the house closely, like she had when she arrived yesterday.
Alone, she used her breathing to quietly take in this house.
Everything was so familiar to her. She must have stayed here before.
Xia Qingyi vaguely remembered that the scissors were placed in the second drawer on the right side of the television. She was curious as to why she had remembered this. She slowly remembered the details of this house.
She walked to the second drawer on the right side of the television and pulled it open. As expected, the scissors were lying there.
Xia Qingyi felt their icy cold touch. Even the feel of the touch was exactly the same.
Faintly, she remembered that there was supposed to be a box there. The box had contained many of her things, though she could not remember where she had placed it.
“Why aren’t you asleep yet?” her mother’s voice suddenly appeared in the dark night.
“I can’t sleep, so I came down to look around.” Xia Qingyi was a little shocked.
“Why? You aren’t used to the bed?”
“No, I have insomnia. I haven’t adapted to this place yet since I’ve just arrived. It’ll be better after a while.”
“Insomnia? Is it serious? I should get some medicine for you tomorrow.”
“No… It’s fine. I will adjust to it.”
