Ji Qingqing was accustomed to her bed and also to Lu Lixing’s breathing while he slept beside her. Now that her sleeping environment changed, she found it very difficult to fall asleep. Her whole head was filled with Lu Lixing’s peck-like kisses and once she thought of them she could feel her face burning up terribly.
Putting up a serious facade but in reality who knows how scoundrelly they are really on the inside?! He couldn’t challenge her words so he used this method to keep her mouth shut.
Keeping their pride till death.
After tossing and turning, she finally managed to feel a little sleepy. In that drowsy state of hers, the door seemed to have opened and a shadow darted into the room. Making no sounds, it was obvious that the figure was taking care to tread lightly. Ji Qingqing woke up with a start and all traces of her sleepiness were gone. With the help of the bright and clear moon outside the window, she vaguely managed to make out the visitor’s facial outline.
That little scare vanished completely.
She got up and turned on the lights at the head of the bed.
When the single light at the head of the bed lit up, Lu Lixing’s hand paused. The blanket was pulled apart midway and his whole person stiffened at the bedside. He instinctively shifted his gaze to Ji Qingqing and the two of them stared at each other eyes wide.
“It’s so late at night, and you scared me to death! What do you want?!” Ji Qingqing glanced at the clock on the wall: 1:30 am.
Lu Lixing initially thought that since it was already 1:30 am, Ji Qingqing would definitely be asleep, but he didn’t think that Ji Qingqing would be more awake than him.
Lu Lixing tried his best to look composed. “I was seeing if you had fallen asleep already.”
“Thanks for your concern, but if you hadn’t come in just now I would have already been fast asleep. Do you have anything else?”
“Nothing else. No.”
Ji Qingqing looked at him with her guard up. “If there’s nothing, then quickly go to sleep. I’m dead tired.”
After hearing Ji Qingqing’s words, Lu Lixing nonchalantly lifted the blanket up and laid down.
Ji Qingqing looked at him naturally laying down beside her and asked, “What are you doing?”
Lu Lixing boldly and confidently replied, “Sleeping.”
“Sleeping? Don’t you have your own room? Why are you sleeping here? Get out!” Ji Qingqing pushed him away.
Lu Lixing was neither irritated nor annoyed. He closed his eyes and stayed there not budging, blatantly relying on the fact that Ji Qingqing couldn’t do anything to him. “Stop fooling around. Quickly go to sleep.”
Just earlier he was pecking her face – Lu Lixing’s ability to forget sure is great.
This time Ji Qingqing didn’t let him have his way. Now that she’s on her own bed, why would she let herself get bullied by him like this?
With one tug, she pulled out the pillow from under Lu Lixing’s elbow and hugged it in her arms. “Mr. Lu, that isn’t good. If this spreads out, others would think that you’re playing by the unspoken rules of the entertainment industry.”
T/N: The unspoken rules of the entertainment industry (潜规则), refers to when higher-ups make use of their status to bind the actors to force the actors to date or have sex with them.
Lu Lixing ignored her threat. He lifted his arm and with one tug, pulled Ji Qingqing into his arms. “Sleep.”
The two of them slept together on the same pillow and she could virtually feel his breathing. It was literally the phrase, ‘sleeping together sharing the same pillow and bed.’
Ji Qingqing gave in and surrendered. “Fine, I’ll give you the pillow, ok? You stand up.”
Both of Lu Lixing’s arms were strong and powerful. Ji Qingqing’s little arms couldn’t make him move and she was pretty much smothered under his embrace.
Lu Lixing’s breathing continued steadily.
Ji Qingqing hugged her pillow and grinded her teeth. She ended up digging a hole for herself again.
In the end, she not only didn’t manage to get back at him, but she also was forced to ‘pay up and surrender her territory.’
Ji Qingqing sighed.
What a failure!
The next morning, Ji Qingqing opened her eyes and noticed Lu Lixing beside her. The two of them were sleeping on the same pillow. As for the other pillow, it had been hugged by Ji Qingqing, but at some point of time during the night, it had unknowingly fallen down to the ground. Ji Qingqing could sense where she had placed her arms and legs and awkwardly shifted them away from Lu Lixing’s body.
