After Shi Sheng got off work, she dashed into Shu Jue's office immediately.
Shu Jue just so happened to head out with his coat, Shi Sheng whipped up a smile instantly, "Chief Editor Shu."
Shu Jue,"..." Does this girl have no reservations?
He then thought, if she did, he might not be having dinner with her today.
Shu Jue walked towards Shi Sheng, pondered for a moment, "what do you want to eat?"
Shi Sheng replied with a smile, "we'll go eat anything you want."
Shu Jue did not see a hint of embarrassment from Shi Sheng's face. She was looking at him with full affection.
Shu Jue opened the door for her and gestured for her to go out first.
They left the office, bumping into co-workers that had been pointing and judging them from far away.
"Is this Xin Yi with Chief Editor Shu? Isn't he Song Meng Zi's boyfriend..."
"Look at how Xin Yi repaid Song Meng Zi by snatching his boyfriend. Now we have a drama to watch."
"Why someone as perfect as Chief Editor Shu didn't see me? I'm nonetheless the belle of the department."
"Come on, the belle of the department."
Song Meng Zi chased after Shi Sheng and Shu Jue with a bag of snacks.
Everyone quieted down instantly. However, Song Meng Zi only told Shi Sheng something and waved them goodbye with a smile.
The crowd,"..." we don't get it.
Since when did love rivals get along so well with each other?
Shu Jue chose the restaurant. It was a small restaurant where the waiters and the chefs were all men.
Shi Sheng knew that letting Shu Jue pick the venue was the correct choice.
How could someone as sick as him eating casually anywhere she liked?
"See what you want to order." Shu Jue passed the menu to Shi Sheng.
Shi Sheng flipped through the menu and picked two dishes casually.
Shu Jue glanced at her and ordered the same thing.
Shi Sheng raised her eyebrows habitually, "Is Chief Editor Shu putting up with me?"
Shu Jue looked down a little, "you can just call me Shu Jue."
"You haven't answered me."
Shu Jue took a deep breath, raised his head, and looked Shi Sheng in her eyes, "I have to get used to you..." as what a boyfriend would do.
Since he had made this decision, he would not give up halfway.
They indeed were destined to be with each other?
Shi Sheng supported her chin, "you don't have to get used to me."
She paused, then with a half-smile at the corner of her lips, "we don't need the words 'get used' between us. You just need to..."
"Let me spoil you."
Shu Jue was dumbfounded.
Isn't this line kind of strange?
Is this my illusion?
Did she say he should get spoiled by her?
Shi Sheng called the waiter and changed the menu from the dishes Shu Jue ordered for her to something he liked to eat.
"Shu Jue, I don't particularly like anything, except for you. You're my favorite." Shi Sheng's voice was neither loud nor soft, but it felt like a hurricane in Shu Jue's ears, kicking up layers and layers of ripple that made him uncalmable.
"Which part do you like about me?" Is it really possible to be with someone based on the guts?
"As long as it's you, I like every part of it."
As long as it's you, I like every part of it.
That one sentence was like a loop in Shu Jue's mind. It kept on repeating.
That meal was probably the most memorable dinner that Shu Jue had ever had.
"Are you full?" Although Shi Sheng did not act the way Shu Jue expected he was not weirded out about it, as if this was already pre-set in his subconscious.
Shi Sheng caressed her stomach, "yes, but it'll be better if we get desserts."
"Haven't you had that?" Shu Jue looked at the dessert plates in front of Shi Sheng.
Shi Sheng rolled her eyes, "shouldn't you give me a kiss to celebrate our relationship as a boyfriend?"
"I'll get the bills." Shu Jue got up and quickly left.
Although he forced himself to use utensils that she used, he knew he could not handle physical contact.
Plus they just finished their meal, so he did not want to destroy his image in front of her.
After Shu Jue paid the bills, he got in his car with Shi Sheng and drove to a jewelry store without asking her.
"Pick whichever you like, I'll buy for you."
Shu Jue said that after entering the store.
Shi Sheng charged at the wedding rings right away.
"Miss, are you looking for wedding rings? We have the latest edition over here. You may have a look. They're all..."
Shu Jue looked at Shi Sheng with shock.
He stepped in, "Xin Yi, what are you doing?"
"Didn't you say to let me choose?" Shi Sheng responded innocently.
"I didn't..." Shu Jue turned sideways, lowered his voice, "I didn't ask you to choose wedding rings, we're..." still testing.
Shi Sheng was determined, "that doesn't matter, I'm going to be yours at the end anyway."
"Xin Yi!" Shu Jue shouted. His ears were slightly red.
Can't she act like a girl?
Shi Sheng pouted, "fine, I don't want to buy them anymore."
Shi Sheng headed out of the store right away. 4 chased after and asked helplessly, "are you mad?"
"Nope." Shi Sheng pulled open the car door and entered the car.
Shu Jue hurriedly followed. The car door closed, and it was dead silent in the car.
"We're moving too fast." Shu Jue after contemplating for some time.
Shi Sheng turned around, "do you know what I want to do now?"
Shi Sheng got close to him. Her feminine fragrance gushed into Shu Jue's nose, he had to hold back the urge to get out of the car.
But he endured it. He looked at the person opposite him and shortened the distance between them.
Shi Sheng did not touch Shu Jue. She stopped while she was an inch away from him, tilted her head, and whispered in his ears, "I want to sleep with you."
Shu Jue was almost suffocated, and his world was full of her smell.
Shi Sheng stretched her hand at Shu Jue, "to reach that goal. How about we start holding hands first?"
By the time Shu Jue snapped back, the person that whispered in his ear a moment ago already went back to her seat, with her fair hand stretched out in front of him.
Shu Jue hesitated for a moment and put his hand in Shi Sheng's palm.
Shi Sheng's hand was a little cool. It was not as big as men's hands. It was so small until he could wrap her hand with his hand.
Probably Shu Jue was getting used to her, so he did not feel like throwing up. He only felt uncomfortable.
The wedding ring incident was not mentioned by both of them after this.
Shu Jue insisted on sending Shi Sheng home, so Shi Sheng complied by letting him send her to the outside of her neighborhood.
"You live here?" Shu Jue looked at the old neighborhood with a frown.
The neighborhood was old, and it looked dirty. It was usual that a moron like Shu Jue would not like it.
"Yeah, I can't afford to buy a house. If Lord Boyfriend could allow me to stay with you. I don't have a problem with it."
Shi Sheng caught the chance to tease him. Shu Jue avoided the question, "goodnight."
Shi Sheng shrugged, "night."
