Chapter 614 - Your Man
“Even though I came prepared and brought along equipment, I couldn’t help but feel afraid when I entered the water. If things were to get worse, I was prepared to give up the rescue to ensure my safety.” Jiang Yao still remembered the fear of getting swept away by the swift current. “I promise, I will never do it again.”
“That’s your promise.” Lu Xingzhi patted her head. “You better keep it.”
After Jiang Yao nodded her head, he retrieved his hand on the wall and wrapped it around her waist.
Just like that, the couple stood in a silent embrace, with only their breathing audible.
Raindrops plummeted around them. His back, a strong and steady presence, shielded her from the elements and protected her from danger.
Lu Xingzhi finally spoke after a few minutes of silence. “How did you save Chen Feibai?”
“I brought an inflatable kayak and some ropes. Using the techniques you taught me, I tied one end of the rope on the tires,” Jiang Yao smiled. “I’m so glad you taught me how to do it. I would not have entered the water with the method I used to tie knots with.”
After listening to Jiang Yao’s story, Lu Xingzhi’s heart skipped a beat.
“I should have torn your driver’s license into pieces if I knew you were going to do this! I shouldn’t have taught you everything!” Lu Xingzhi struggled to hold his anger in. “Are you going to arrest criminals with the police after learning how to shoot?”
“Are you unhappy that I saved Chen Feibai?” Jiang Yao chuckled. “Look at you getting mad, I thought you said that you are not gonna get angry?”
“So that’s how you see me, huh?” Lu Xingzhi asked coldly.
Jiang Yao shook her head. “I was just kidding! You are a hero to me! I know you were worried about Chen Feibai, but more so about me!”
Lu Xingzhi broke into a smile.
“You had it wrong. I am not your hero, I am just your man.” Lu Xingzhi hurriedly corrected Jiang Yao. “I can be the world’s hero, but I am only your man, your husband, your one and only Lu Xingzhi.”
She rested her face on his chest, laughing happily at what he just said. His mood lightened at the sight of her cheerful face.
“Look at me, Darling,” he said.
Jiang Yao raised her head only to be assaulted by Lu Xingzhi’s lips, as he drove his warm kiss onto her lips. Pushing her against the wall, he gently lifted her chin up to devour more of her.
What a guy!
Yet, she could not bear to push him away.
They were only separated for a week, but it felt like years. Her heart, her lips, her body missed his presence very much.
