After Transmigration, The Male Lead and I had a HE - Chapter 193
She had already looked it up before— when a boy confessed to you, should you accept directly?
Many people said that she needed to play hard to get. If she let him realize that she was not so easy to pursue, he would cherish her more.
Although Su Qiuge disapproved of this, her subconscious was still affected, and she agreed to give him an answer a week later, in case…
In case she was just bewitched by his good looks and he had blackmail to laugh at her about in the future.
Thinking of this, she shook her head.
Xie Xinglin immediately asked, “Then why are you hiding? Time is running out, change here.”
Su Qiuge was silent, then lowered her head, looked for a small bench in the corner, took off her sneakers, and then bent down to put on small leather shoes.
She had put Wen Mingming’s lipstick in her pocket, and because of this movement, it rolled out. Su Qiuge’s shoes were halfway on, and she wanted to pick the lipstick up. Before she could, slender fingers grasped the golden tube of the lipstick.
Su Qiuge felt a little anxious and looked up at him. He said, “There is no mirror here, can you apply it well?”
Su Qiuge stretched out her hand to grab the lipstick. With a smile on his face, Xie Xinglin raised the lipstick slightly and whispered, “Why don’t I help you, hm?”
Su Qiuge opened her eyes wide, then frowned in disgust and said, “No need, I’m better than you even if I don’t apply it in front of the mirror.”
Xie Xinglin raised his eyebrows and looked down at her, “Really?”
Halfway through his speech, he suddenly caught Su Qiuge’s chin and pulled on it slightly. Then, he played with the lipstick in his hand, and then slowly applied the lipstick.
It was quite itchy.
Following the trail of his actions, an electric current rushed into her mind.
Su Qiuge inhaled and cast her eyes down, only to see his fingers on her jaw. She wanted to stop him, but then she saw that he had pushed the scarlet column body out of the tube body, and she didn’t dare to move, for fear of accidentally ruining Wen Mingming’s lipstick.
He leaned down, and Su Qiuge was forced to look up at him.
Obviously it wouldn’t take long, but while maintaining this shameful posture, Su Qiuge felt like a year had passed.
She couldn’t help but ask, “Are… are you done?”
As soon as she finished speaking, he frowned slightly, “Don’t move.”
Su Qiuge blinked, her eyelashes trembled slightly. She didn’t know where to look, so she stared at the ceiling. After a while, she noticed that the boy’s thumb was touching the corner of her mouth.
She was stunned for a moment, turned her eyes to him, and met his gaze.
His thumb wiped her lips, Su Qiuge looked down and saw the lipstick mark on his thumb.
In the small room, his voice was a little hoarse.
“Tsk, it’s crooked.”
He muttered in a low voice, “Didn’t I just tell you to be obedient and stop moving, hm?”
Su Qiuge frowned, then whispered, “When did I move…”
“Maybe you did it on purpose,” she continued dully.
This person was so ill-intentioned it was worrying.
Xie Xinglin should have denied it, but he actually smiled casually and revealed, “Well, I did it on purpose.”
He wiped the corner of his mouth with his lipstick-stained thumb, bringing out a touch of red, and looked up at her, “So, are you going to take revenge? Huh?”
Being stared at so directly by him, Su Qiuge felt that it was a little hot inside, and the temperature rose on her face. She lowered her head and slid on her dress shoes. There were many buttons and laces.
At this time, she just wanted to get out of the room quickly. She was very flustered, and she couldn’t get the shoes on properly after fiddling with it a few times.
She wanted to hide her nervousness, but the more she did this, the more chaotic the movements of her hands became.
Feeling the eyes staring at her back, she was so anxious that her eyes turned red, and his sneering laughter came from her ears.
“Tsk, you’re quite stupid.”
Immediately afterwards, the man kneeled on one knee in front of her, with one hand under the sole of her foot, as if he were holding something fragile.
She was wearing white pantyhose, and her small leg was gripped in his slender fingers.
It was like he just couldn’t stand it anymore and wanted to take the initiative to help her.
But Su Qiuge didn’t know if she was thinking too much. She always felt that this person had no intention but of teasing her with his fingers.
She felt that there were feathers tickling the soles of her feet. Her toes curled up slightly, feeling like a fire was burning wherever he touched.
His movements were unhurried, the burgundy satin ribbons shuttled back and forth between his fingers, and the coquettish and beautiful colors complemented his knuckles like jade.
After the ribbon was tied, Su Qiuge quickly stood up.
Because her face was already embarrassingly red, she urgently needed to go out to breathe.
She whispered a quick “thank you”, but when she was about to leave, Xie Xinglin said in a low voice, “I helped you out, don’t you need to be polite?”
Su Qiuge: ?
He frowned. His slender index finger pointed at the unfastened collar hanging above his collar and he took out the bow tie from his pocket, looking at her suggestively.
Su Qiuge was not reluctant, but she worried that if she continued to stay with him, she would get a nosebleed again, just like last week.
“You…you can’t do it yourself?”
Xie Xinglin looked down at her, then stalked towards her. He slowly wrapped his tie around his collar and neck.
When he came over, his Adam’s apple moved with his swallow, and then he whispered, “Well, no.”
His tone was a little lower, as if he was deliberately pretending to be pitiful, but he betrayed himself with his eager indifference.
“You can help me.”
Su Qiuge took a step back and pressed her back against the door behind her. She watched him get closer and closer, and swallowed slightly, “You, don’t come over, I’ll help you, I’ll help you. …”
The corner of Xie Xinglin’s mouth twitched, and he stopped in place.
She hesitated for a while, then stretched out her hand to cover his bow tie. Her hands trembled as she went around. She never looked at his face but tied the bow tie very seriously.
Xie Xinglin looked down at her serious expression.
When she didn’t wear makeup on weekdays, her lip color was very light, making her cute and lovely.
But at this time her lips were covered with bright red, and the corners of her mouth still had a little mark that he had just rubbed with his thumb.
This pitiful appearance, coupled with the restrained expression on her face, seemed like someone had bit the corner of her mouth lightly with their teeth.
Thinking of this, Xie Xinglin suddenly felt his throat dry.
Su Qiuge finally finished tying his bow tie, and when she looked up at him, she met his undisguised gaze.
The boy was staring at her, pupils dark and expanding, and his body posture exuded a strong sense of aggression.
He stared straight at her lips and said hoarsely, “This lipstick looks good.”
Su Qiuge: ?
Then, like a humble student asking serious questions from his teacher, he adjusted his bow tie slightly, approached her, and said in a low voice, “Can I try it?”
