1279 Sensual And Tender

Coming back to her senses, Chu Jiu turned her head slightly, only to meet the man’s dark, cavernous eyes.

They seemed to contain a vortex, and staring at them for too long made her giddy.

Chu Jiu felt a little dizzy right now – so dizzy that she forgot to push the man away when he pressed his lips to hers.

At first, Lu Tingchen tentatively touched her lips.

Both their figures were reflected in the crystal clear water. A gentle breeze skimmed over the surface, blurring the reflection.

Some time later, Chu Jiu sat on a rock by the lake, hugging her knees. A tinge of pink still lingered on her cheeks.

As she recalled what had happened just now, her face grew hot again, and she buried her head between her knees in mortification.

Just then, Lu Tingchen walked up to her with a bouquet of flowers in his hand.

At the sight of the woman curled into a ball, a faint blush appeared on his handsome face as well.

His fingers tightening around the bouquet, he hunkered down before her and placed a hand on her shoulder. “Jiu…”

He enunciated her name in a slow, sensual manner.

His breath tickled Chu Jiu’s ear, and she shifted her head slightly but refused to look up.

“Jiu…” Lu Tingchen leaned closer, his lips almost brushing her ear.

Unable to stand the tickle, Chu Jiu reluctantly raised her head. She fought hard to stay calm, but the unfaded pink on her cheeks gave her away. “What?”

A bouquet of fiery-red flowers came into her vision, followed by the man’s soft and tender onyx eyes. “Flowers for a beautiful lady. For you, Jiu.”

Chu Jiu was stunned by the bouquet in front of her. When she heard what he said, she thought to herself, ‘I didn’t know Lu Tingchen was such a sweet talker.’

Glancing at him, she reached out and took the flowers. “Thank you.”

Resting on one knee, Lu Tingchen pulled her close by the shoulders and leaned forward to kiss her on the forehead. There was contentment in his low voice as he said, “My pleasure.”

The dampness on her forehead sent another blush spreading across Chu Jiu’s face.

She raised her head slightly to look at him.

From that angle, Lu Tingchen’s features were extraordinarily flawless and chiseled.

Lu Tingchen was certainly worthy of being called, in the Empress’s words, hot.

It was unbelievable for Chu Jiu how they had gone from snapping at each other’s throats to sharing intimacy with each other.

In her opinion, the best way to describe their relationship would be “enemies”.

It was incredible how two people who used to fight every time they met could enjoy such a warm and peaceful moment together. If the Empress were to find out, she would definitely be shocked.

Lu Tingchen lowered his head, only to see the young woman staring up at him with a glazed look in her eyes.

His Adam’s apple bobbed, and he felt his mouth suddenly go dry. Ever so slightly, his fingers dug into her shoulder.

He silently suppressed his restlessness, and to distract himself, he asked a little hoarsely, “Do you want to have roast fish?”

“Huh?” Chu Jiu stared at him in confusion.

“There are plenty of fish in the water.” Lu Tingchen turned his gaze away and pointed at the water.

Chu Jiu followed his line of sight. Sure enough, there were a lot of fish in the water.

Without waiting for her reply, Lu Tingchen stood up. “Wait here. I’ll go and catch some fish.”

Chu Jiu wanted to help, but Lu Tingchen stopped her, so she had no choice but to sit back down and watch him catch fish.

With a dagger, he carved a piece of bamboo into a spike. Then, he stood in the shallow water, the hem of his robe stuffed into his belt and his pant legs rolled up, and bent over to spike fish.

Chu Jiu’s gaze followed him, her frosty eyes soft with amusement to see him behave in such a childlike manner.
