Su Luoli froze, still not used to the fact that she had a husband.
She had been so busy with her thesis and joining the production in these past few days that she had completely forgotten about her husband.
"What are you standing there for? Hurry and get clean!" Zhao Nini urged.
Zhao Nini's words made Su Luoli uncomfortable. Hurry and get clean? It made her sound like some sort of—tool for sex.
Su Luoli did not argue with her though. The girl had a sharp tongue and could curse and swear like no other. Why interact with her?
"Alright," Su Luoli said as she went upstairs.
Zhao Nini twisted her face into a scowl and returned to her own room. She stood in front of the mirror to look at her reflection.
Pushing her breasts upwards, she ranted, "What does Sir see in that woman? My breasts are bigger! My looks are better! It's not fair! It's really not fair!"
Upstairs, Su Luoli enjoyed her shower. This man could come back today. No matter what, he was her husband. She had to let him know her schedule arrangements.
What made Su Luoli happy was that she had tested herself the past two days and she was not pregnant.
That was good. At least she did not have to worry about whose child it was.
Even though this husband had only shown up after a year, she still wanted a baby soon, and thought to speak to him about it today.
With this thought on her mind, Su Luoli finished her shower and packed her bag.
She did not have much, and a small case was enough.
The man had not returned by the time she was done.
She needed to go to Yancheng to film early the next morning. Yancheng was not actually the name of a city, but a filming venue. All historical dramas were filmed there, and it was not very far away, only about fifty kilometers from the center of Z City.
While it was not far, there would be a ceremony to mark the start of filming. This was her first ceremony and it would be a pity to miss it.
Before she knew it, Su Luoli felt sleepy. She lay on the bed fighting off sleep, but lost the battle.
As before, Wen Qingmu arrived late at night. When he showed up, Zhao Nini hurried to turn off the power supply.
His week has been very busy, but on hearing that Su Luoli would be joining a production, he thought about her and had to come over.
If he had not touched a woman before, it was still okay, but once the floodgates were open, he could not hold back!
Stepping into the room, he saw Su Luoli in her pajamas lying on top of the quilt. Her graceful pose turned him on.
Wen Qingmu did not hesitate and threw himself on her.
Su Luoli was not actually in a deep asleep. When Wen Qingmu came over, she woke up. After all, she still had something to discuss with him.
"Wait…" Su Luoli dodged Wen Qingmu's kisses with some effort. She reached out to switch on the bedside table lamp.
The light did not come on!
Su Luoli pressed it a few more times, but there was still no light.
Was the lamp broken?
As Su Luoli hesitated, Wen Qingmu had already pulled her hand back and was dominating her mouth with a wet kiss.
She tried to speak several times, but Wen Qingmu did not give her the chance.
Once again, he ripped her pajamas apart…
He was rough, and she was unable to speak.
He kept this up until midnight, when Wen Qingmu noticed that Su Luoli was flagging under him, and he stopped.
Wen Qingmu turned his back to her and started dressing. No one knew how he managed to find his clothes in the dark, but his movements were smooth.
Su Luoli's fingers twitched. She was exhausted and aching…
But she managed to open her eyes. "Hubby…"
Wen Qingmu stopped in his tracks at her voice. The weak sound lit up his face.
It was the first time she had addressed him as such.
He did not know why, but he liked it. He really liked it.
"Let's…have a baby," Su Luoli said weakly.
Wen Qingmu could not speak for fear of revealing his identity, so he dressed quickly and left.
The tall and burly silhouette moved past in the darkness and the door shut with a bang.
Su Luoli's thoughts were a mess. He had said nothing, was that a yes or a no?
Then because she was simply too tired, she fell into a deep sleep.
Wen Qingmu descended the stairs. Zhao Nini had lit some candles in the living room for light. On seeing Wen Qingmu come downstairs, she hurried to turn the power supply back on and blew out the candles.
"Sir, are you tired? Would you like some supper?" Zhao Nini leapt forward.
Wen Qingmu ignored her and sat on the sofa. "Get me pen and paper."
Zhao Nini dared not dawdle, quickly delivering pen and paper to Wen Qingmu's hands.
He scribbled something and passed it to Zhao Nini.
She glanced down at it. It looked like an English word, but she did not understand it.
"Give this to Madam when she wakes up tomorrow morning. Tell her that she needs to report her whereabouts to me moving forward."
Wen Qingmu got up and left.
By the time Su Luoli woke up, it was already ten in the morning. She glanced at the time; she had missed the ceremony.
The ceremony was to be held that morning at nine, so it was probably already over!
She sprawled in bed, letting herself sink deeper into the quilt.
That man was always so rough!
Her body was probably a giant bruise!
There was only the ceremony today, so since she had already missed it, she did not need to rush.
After a short nap, Su Luoli reluctantly got out of bed, and dragged her luggage down the stairs.
She ignored Zhao Nini and headed straight out, but Zhao Nini called out to her.
"Hey! Sir left this note for you!" Zhao Nini held a small slip of paper out to Su Luoli.
Su Luoli took the note. The English word was inexplicable, and she looked at Zhao Nini with a confused face.
Zhao Nini cleared her throat and assumed the posture of someone in charge. "Sir said that you must report your whereabouts to him moving forward!"
"Oh." Su Luoli thought about it. She did not have her husband's phone number, so this was probably a WeChat ID?
She pulled out her phone and added it. There it was!
Zhao Nini watched all of this.
Su Luoli sniffed coldly. This man was so stingy; he did not even leave her his number. Most people would use their phone number as their WeChat ID, but he chose to deviate from the normal path. It looked like he was really trying to avoid her.
"Nini, my bedside lamp is broken. It wouldn't switch on last night. Could you please look at it and fix it if needed?"
"You want me to fix a lamp?" Zhao Nini stared at Su Luoli, her arms crossed in front of her, as if asking what right she had to order her around!
"If Sir comes back to find that the lights in the house are broken, he probably wouldn't be happy, would he?"
Zhao Nini snorted unbelievably. "Don't worry, Sir doesn't need lights! He doesn't need any electronics!"
Su Luoli frowned. There was a deeper meaning to Zhao Nini's words. "What do you mean?"
