Mr. Yuan's Dilemma: Can't Help Falling In Love With You Chapter 377
Shao Yibai hung up the phone and walked into the bedroom. His eyebrows furrowed when he saw Su Qingcheng sleeping.
She seemed incredibly relaxed!
The woman who was lying spreadeagled had occupied half of the bed. Perhaps she had gotten used to sleeping like this since she usually slept alone. Thus, she had selfishly made herself at home because she did not realize that there was someone else here who was going to share the bed and pillows with her.
Shao Yibai smiled and reached his hand out to hold her slim waist. He pulled her into his arms and closed his eyes. He inhaled her womanly fragrance several times and lost himself in it.
“Xiaodai, you’ve finally become my woman!”
Shao Yibai murmured beside her ear, his heart bubbling with warmth.
He stroked her shoulders with his large hands. The red marks there were left behind by his rather violent behavior earlier.
However, when he recalled those moments, he realized that he simply wanted to leave his mark on her body. He wanted there to be something that symbolized that he possessed her!
Su Qingcheng leaned into his embrace. She could not remain in the spread eagle position now that she was restrained. She rubbed her big fluffy head against his chest. She was as gentle as a kitten.
The woman’s appearance when she was sound asleep softened Shao Yibai’s heart into a mushy mess.
The moment he entered her body, he had already decided that he would bring her home to his family tomorrow. Regardless of his parents’ objections, he wanted to declare to the world that he was going to marry this woman!
The Shao Family welcomed a new day.
When she got up early in the morning, Jiao Shuzhen instructed the servant to meticulously sweep the front hall where the octagonal palace lanterns were hung.
Newly bought lush ornamental plants and flowers were lined on both sides of the corridor from the front door leading to the main hall, forming a walkway to welcome the guests.
Several desserts that were to be consumed as a way to cool off in the scorching summer had already been prepared in the kitchen. Shao Jingshan had asked the chef who was the most skilled at preparing Si Chuan cuisine in the military compound to come over and cook up a storm in the kitchen with the Shao Family’s own chef.
Jiao Shuzhen had already admitted defeat during this battle that had yet to go out in full force. That was why she decided to surrender once she was exposed and appeared as though she was trying to gain her son’s favor. Shao Jingshan was very pleased when he saw this.
He called Shao Yibai again and urged him to hurry up.
Shao Yibai glanced at the long line of cars in front of him. He answered the phone and told his father that there was some traffic along the way. Deep down, he could not help but sigh and be thankful that it was not like this last night. It only took him 15 minutes to get to Su Qingcheng’s apartment.
Su Qingcheng sat at the passenger’s seat. She looked unusually worried. She was gripping the tassels on her clothes tightly, bunching them up before unraveling them one by one again. It was apparent from her repeated movement that she was really anxious.
“Big Brother Shao, why… Why are you suddenly taking me home to meet your family?”
She had just turned from a little girl into a woman after making love to him just last night. After that, Shao Yibai had confessed his feelings to her and said that he was going to take her to meet his parents.
Everything had happened so suddenly. Su Qingcheng had no time to accept these changes or get used to them.
She knew that Jiao Shuzhen disliked her in her heart…
Shao Yibai sensed her uneasiness. He held the steering wheel in one hand and pulled her little hand over with his other, placing it in his palm and stroking it.
“Don’t worry, I’m here. You’re going to meet my parents when you go to my house this time. After that, you’ll be the one that I’ve set my heart on!”
Shao Yibai looked rather manly and ruthless when he was wearing his military uniform. Now that he was dressed in casual clothes now, he looked even more sinister, but it did not prove to be much of a contrast at all with the aristocratic air about him.
Su Qingcheng concluded that he was extremely attractive.
“I’m not worried about them disliking me…” Su Qingcheng seemed quite delicate when she spoke in hushed tones.
“What are you worried about then?” Shao Yibai’s voice was deep but hoarse.
“You’re introducing me to your family suddenly. Was it because of what you did last night…”
Su Qingcheng was not someone who could hide her true feelings.
She had arrived in Capital City for more than a year, but Shao Yibai had never once taken her to meet his parents despite saying that he would time and time again. Along the way, Jiao Shuzhen had even brought her supposedly “future daughter-in-law” over to display her influence.
However, Shao Yibai had conveniently taken her to the Shao household early in the morning today after they had progressed to a new phase of their relationship last night. Deep down, Su Qingcheng had trouble accepting this.
“Big Brother Shao, you don’t have to assume responsibility of me just because you’ve slept with me. I was perfectly happy doing those things with you last night!” Su Qingcheng was being serious. She had thoroughly enjoyed herself during those happy moments.
Shao Yibai was shocked. He turned the steering wheel and navigated the car out of the traffic. After that, he stopped his car at the greenbelt beside the road.
“Xiaodai, why would you say that?” Perhaps he had sensed the anguish in Su Qingcheng’s heart when he heard the tone of her voice. Shao Yibai was faintly uneasy.
“I’d take responsibility even if I didn’t sleep with you. I’m not taking you home to my family simply because I’m assuming responsibility for my actions. I’m taking you home with me because I want to tell you that I love you, and I’m going to marry you!”
When a tough soldier like Shao Yibai said things like this, it truly made him seemed extremely seductive.
His gaze was as deep as the ocean when he stared at the woman who was just acting like a spoiled child in his arms last night. The wrinkles that were engraved in his features softened when he held the woman’s little hands. He exercised his restraint then and simply placed them in front of his lips for a kiss and nothing more.
Su Qingcheng’s heart was already beating wildly in her chest. The exhaustion that she felt from last night made her feel as though she was about to suffocate soon. The woman’s pitch-black eyes were filled with tears. She felt that her happiness came too suddenly, and she was afraid that this was all a dream.
She would be forced to return to the remote mountains when she woke up from her dream. Day after day, she would spend her time doing farm work in the fields. When she reached a certain age, her parents would find a suitable man for her to marry…
She had experienced being loved by the most outstanding man in the world and could never willingly go back to the past anymore.
“Xiaodai, I know that deep down you resent me because this is the first time that I’m bringing you home to my parents although you’ve already been here for such a long time.”
Guilt flashed across Shao Yibai’s handsome face when he said this.
“To be honest, I’ve been fighting with my mother before this because she wouldn’t accept you,” said Shao Yibai frankly. Nonetheless, Su Qingcheng was not surprised by this outcome.
“I love you, but I love her too. I was hoping that I could find a peaceful way to make her accept you, but some issues cropped up along the way. Right now, I have no alternative but to decide which one of you I’d rather hurt. Unfortunately, you won me over.”
Su Qingcheng snorted and rubbed her eyes. She scolded, “Shao Yibai, your language skills are terrible! Do you mean that I’m fortunate or unfortunate?”
“Oh, you’re right!” Shao Yibai relaxed when he saw her laughing. He said with a smile, “My language skills have always been terrible. When I was a young boy studying in junior high in the military compound, my teacher made me recite poems…
“The bright moon of the Qin dynasty dims during the Han dynasty, and traveling the vast Jiangling county takes a day to be done.
“The sound of the galloping horses in Qian Cao is silenced when the cries of apes on both shores are incessant.”
Su Qingcheng giggled when she heard Shao Yibai proudly recalling this interesting incident.
Shao Yibai calmed down when he saw the smile on her face. His voice was sounded emotional when he said, “I said that I’d be faithful to you to the end. If I can’t marry you in this life, I won’t marry anyone else for the rest of my days.”
Su Qingcheng would be lying if she said that she was not touched.
She had always been a person with a one-track mind who was silly but adorable. She gave her trust to other people without ever doubting them.
As this was the man whom she loved the most, she would obviously be dead set on believing him. She nodded as though she was a little chick who was pecking at grains. “Well, let’s hurry up and go then! Your mother is probably waiting for us at home with a lot of delicious food…”
Shao Yibai gave her a look that hinted how much of a glutton she was…
