He buried his face against her hair on her back, and he sounded worn out with his gravelly voice. “Cheng, I’m exhausted. Please let me sleep for a while.” Lu Yuzhen wrapped his arms around her soft and pliable body, and he inhaled the faint fragrance of the woman in his embrace. In the end, he closed his eyes and was soon fast asleep.
Xia Micheng heard his steady breathing. He actually fell asleep! Is he planning to stay overnight here? Tonight is his wedding night with Li Yuntong. Isn’t he planning to go home?
Xia Micheng moved suddenly. The man, who was still asleep, moaned reluctantly, and his husky voice was inexplicably seductive. He mumbled in a daze, “Cheng, be a good girl and let me hug you to sleep.” He was too exhausted; it was already the crack of dawn, and the sun would be up soon. He needed to nap, but he was afraid that she would escape, and so hugging her to sleep would give him a sense of security. He was scared that she would be gone when he opened his eyes.
Xia Micheng was overwhelmed with the feeling of shame and resentment. On the other hand, she felt slightly aggrieved and powerless too. He hugged her soft figure tightly, and his alluring masculine scent shrouded over her. She felt trapped by his scent, as if she would never escape from his grasp. Maybe I can never free myself. His hands were still wrapped around her firmly even when he was fast asleep.
Xia Micheng’s eyelashes were quivering, and her eyes were red and brimming with tears as she was still trapped in Lu Yuzhen’s embrace. Isn’t this his silent and stubborn way of getting me to stay by his side while imprisoning me? I’m not sure when it started, but I’ve become an obsession he can’t let go of. However, I’ll have to leave sooner or later. He will be subjected to Li Yuntong’s control if I stay here. I will have to share the same man with Li Yuntong if I stay here. My life should not stop at this point. I must leave.
