Even at this point, Bai Zhexuan had still not tried to call her. It only proved that he was not worth her effort and she was not going to let him off the hook!
Jiang Sui-an could not deny that keeping this woman by his side was a good decision.
Yan Wen smiled openly. In front of him she chose to be a blank slate. A marriage was not just a ceremony. Even though they had not known each other long, she felt an inexplicable attraction towards him.
"Sir, the preparations for the bedroom and bathroom are completed as instructed," the maid said politely.
Yan Wen tightened her grip on her cutlery. Her heart was pounding as she looked at him and blushed.
The wedding night!
Yan Wen followed Jiang Sui-an to the bedroom. The house was filled with rose petals and colorful candles. She had mentally prepared herself, but when it came down to it she was still scared and nervous.
As she stepped on the plush beige carpet, she felt the warmth of this cold man. He had made these preparations with her comfort in mind.
Jiang Sui-an noticed her reaction and said lightly, "I'm going to take a shower first. You can get ready. I hope you will be Mrs Jiang wholeheartedly but if you want to wait, I won't do anything tonight."
His words were warm, but she had chosen this marriage. They were equals in this partnership and she would not let Jiang Sui-an be responsible for her past.
Plucking up her courage, Yan Wen reached up to grab his shirt. On her tiptoes, she touched her lips to his briefly. Yan Wen was about to tell him how she felt when she was lifted up into his arm. The world spun as he deposited her on the soft bed.
Jiang Sui-an restrained himself, his voice deep. "Are you really ready? After tonight, there's no turning back."
The heat of his body transferred through his palms to Yan Wen's body as he waited for her answer.
"I believe you won't disappoint me."
He stopped hesitating and bent to kiss her deeply. His gentleness and dominance melded together, and their panting filled the air.
Yan Wen's heart and soul tingled as if they were aflame. She had never experienced such sensations before.
She did her best to keep up with him, blurred eyes filled with affection, when his actions suddenly slowed. As she lay wrapped in his arms, he laid a gentle kiss on her and groaned her name.
"Mm?" Yan Wen reached her arms around his neck.
Jiang Sui-an took a deep breath and fought down his desire. He had not realized that Yan Wen was a virgin. It had taken him by surprise, but he quickly made a decision.
One should not be so hasty about such a precious night.
His broad shoulders were within easy reach. "You're beautiful tonight, but I don't want to hurt you. So… next time."
"Have I… done something you don't like?" Yan Wen asked carefully, thinking she had done something wrong.
Jiang Sui-an pulled on his clothes, tamping down his desire. "What if I had hurt you? You should have told me."
"Then did we... do it?" Yan Wen could not help but ask, taking in his stricken face.
"Regardless, you're my wife." Having said so, Jiang Sui-an scooped her up in his arms and carried her into the bathroom. "Let me check if you're hurt."
Yan Wen choked out a laugh, squirming. "Why are you so good to me?"
He turned his dark eyes on her. "This is destiny. Even if we missed the past few years, you are still meant to be with me."
His dominance unexpectedly warmed her heart. He was honest in his thinking. Yes was yes and no was no; a match for her.
She was happy being a cat in his arms, drowning in the warmth of his dominance.
Two hearts could only become closer when they were honest, open and valued each other.
At least until this point, Yan Wen did not regret making that first move towards him.
