Chapter 507 - Stand Straight
She let down her defenses and opened herself to his advances, all thanks to the kiss.
The next morning, Jiang Yao was once again wrapped up from head to toe and went to Golden Harbor with Lu Xingzhi to get Zhou Weiqi as they were supposed to return to Jin City together.
Zhou Weiqi did not have much luggage, he chucked a suitcase into the trunk and stepped into the car groggily. “I drank too much yesterday, my head hurts! I think Brother Liang’s very happy though, I don’t think it should be a problem if I want to borrow his car for a while.”
On paper, Zhou Weiqi was a poor man with nothing to his name, after returning many of his assets to the Zhou family. Reality dictated that he was, in fact, quite well-off.
Realizing that he was ignored, he sat up and tugged on Jiang Yao’s scarf. “Aren’t you hot? The heating’s on, you know?”
As he pulled, the scarf came off, revealing that Jiang Yao was wearing a face mask, Zhou Weiqi blinked and asked, “Are you sick?”
Jiang Yao nodded her head and swiftly wrapped her scarf around her neck.
“Get some sleep, we’ll wake you up when we arrive.” Lu Xingzhi threatened. “Another word from you and out you go.”
Zhou Weiqi immediately lay down on the backseat and dozed off to sleep.
Jiang Yao breathed a sigh of relief. Hearing Lu Xingzhi’s soft chuckle, she gave him a vicious glare.
It was his fault!
He was gentle at first, before revealing his true self, leaving marks on her entire body. Even her lips were swollen from all the action last night.
Jiang Yao could feel the difference in how the soldiers treated her when she returned to the platoon.
Regardless of whether they knew her personally, she was greeted by everyone that saw her.
The first thing she did after returning was to take a nap. She was woken up by Lu Xingzhi at lunchtime.
“Freshen up, we’re going over to Colonel Lin’s for lunch. Mrs. Lin called just now, they wanted to treat us to a meal, as thanks for the surgery you did for Colonel Lin.”
Seeing Jiang Yao’s sleepy face, he scooped her up and carried her all the way to the bathroom.
“Stand straight,” he said as he grabbed a wet towel and wiped her face clean.
Jiang Yao was fully awake when she was in Lu Xingzhi’s arms; yet she enjoyed being doted over by the man.
She felt like a princess, with Lu Xingzhi answering to all her needs without complaints.
With marks still visible on her neck, Jiang Yao wore a turtleneck sweater, put on some lipstick to cover up before leaving the house with Lu Xingzhi.
