Her mother saw her troubled expression and smiled at her. “It’s alright. We can think again about the rest of the things. You’re back now. There’s plenty of time in the future.”
Xia Qingyi laughed too, “I know.”
Xia Qingyi was really comfortable now that she was reunited with her family after all the trouble. Even if she was only helping her mother in washing the dishes, she felt very blessed. Despite only having remembered a small part of her memory from when she was young, she finally felt as if she was the same as any other person, that she had memories and family.
She was reading in the study before going to sleep at night while Han Liang was working next to her. She had finally felt sleepy and was about to get up to return to her room to sleep when she was stopped by Han Liang.
“Let’s sleep in our room tonight.”
Did she not say that she wanted to sleep alone for the time being just yesterday? He had also agreed to it, so why was he saying such things right now? She was completely puzzled, “Didn’t we agree that I’d sleep alone yesterday?”
“I didn’t like it.” Han Liang said calmly.
“But… I’m not used to it…”
“You’ll get used to it eventually. You’re my wife.”
“Didn’t you say that you would respect my opinions?” Xia Qingyi was slightly angry.
“I did say that before, but I’m your husband. We can’t possibly go on like this. I just want to sleep with you.”
Xia Qingyi was firm in her tone. “I told you before, Han Liang. I’ve lost my memory and I can’t remember anything from the past. Nor do I have any feelings for you. You cannot use the way we used to live together in the past on me now.”
“You can regain your memories! You’d remember everything from the past quickly if we lived the way we did in the past!” Han Liang said as he walked in front of her.
Xia Qingyi moved back. “But you have to give me time. I can’t possibly learn how to live with you as husband and wife in such a short time.”
“Then how long do you need? A month? A year? What if you never regain your memories? Would we have to live like this forever then?” Han Liang seemed to be unhappy as well.
“You can give me a week, right? I cannot become the wife that you had in the past immediately.” Xia Qingyi explained helplessly.
“Nian Nian… I’m not forcing you… I just want us to return to how we were in the past…” Han Liang said as he stretched out his hands to caress the stray strands of hair that had fluttered down onto her forehead.
Xia Qingyi held back the urge to move back. “I’ll try my best.”
Han Liang took one step forward as he lowered his head with his eyes closed, wanting to kiss her. However, she moved back still as she looked away and said, “I’m sleepy. I’m going to bed.”
She did not wait for Han Liang to say anything as she walked out after glancing at him once. She returned to the room she had slept in yesterday to go to sleep.
Once she was back in the room, Xia Qingyi could not sleep.
The sleepiness that she had felt in the study originally had been suddenly blown away by Han Liang.
She turned, remembering that she had planned to bring the pillow that helped with her insomnia, though she had forgotten about it when she had left. If she had the pillow in her arms, she would definitely not be like how she was now, turning endlessly in her bed without a tinge of sleepiness.
She could not help but to think about the lingering kiss she had with Mo Han that afternoon at the thought of the pillow.
That kiss was too fluttering. Even if some time had passed since the kiss now, Xia Qingyi’s heart would still thump at the thought of it. It felt way too vivid and made her heart tickle, as if his heavy breathing was still brushing against her neck.
She had really been surprised. Xia Qingyi had always thought that the most that Mo Han felt was an affection between siblings that grew from pitifulness and had never thought in that direction before.
Mo Han had said that what she thought was right, but she had never guessed that he had liked her. It was only because of his gaze on her yesterday that she had suddenly understood with a start.
