My Wife is My Life! - Chapter 290
Early in the morning, Ji Qingqing was woken up by the soft murmuring coming from the living room. She tossed and turned for a couple of minutes. Eventually, the noise stopped and by the time she heard the door close, her sleepiness was completely gone.
She got up and went to open her room door.
On the living room’s coffee table, there was a half a meter long, grand and elegant-looking squarish box that was already opened. As the box appeared too prominent, it was hard for anyone to overlook it.
Ji Qingqing walked over and glanced inside. Within the box, there was a palm-size jewelry box and the entire box was nestled halfway inside that present box.
Even if she wasn’t the one buying it before, this wasn’t the very first time she had seen such a box. It was a ring box.
There was no one in the living room and Lu Lixing had gone off somewhere.
Feeling curious, Ji Qingqing went to open the ring box. There was a blue sapphire ring that could fit a thumb quietly nestled within. The blue sapphire at the center was surrounded by a circle of mini gemstones. Just like the sea, it had a deep azure color, and as it dazzled, no one could take their eyes off it.
Ji Qingqing couldn’t help but gasp, So pretty.
She had never come across this type of ring before, so she didn’t know how much it was priced. But even so, she could tell that it was very expensive.
Also, this was the very first time in her life that she was able to admire one in such close proximity.
But since the ring appeared here, Lu Lixing must have bought it. Though why in the world he bought it for, she had no idea.
Ji Qingqing suddenly stiffened.
She had a moment of realization and it dawned on her instantly.
A really uncontrollable, far-fetched thought started to circle in her head.
Could it be—
She immediately shut the ring box and put it back. Her face had turned completely bright red.
At that moment, voices could be heard from the door. Ji Qingqing’s heart thumped furiously and she quickly fled into her room to bury herself under the blanket.
Right after Ji Qingqing entered her room, the door opened. Lu Lixing walked in and his gaze swept around. Then with soft steps, he quietly approached Ji Qingqing’s room and pushed the door open. When he glanced inside, Ji Qingqing was still in her bed. He silently closed the door without making a single sound. After that, he went back and continued his discussion with a male foreigner. The male foreigner was dressed in a suit and he was also holding a black present box in his hands.
That black present box was exactly the same as the one on the coffee table.
Ji Qingqing heard the soft click of the door closing and heaved a sigh of relief. She had smothered herself underneath her blanket till her face had turned red.
What a close shave – Lu Lixing almost caught her.
While she thought of this, a smile curved from the corner of her lips. It wasn’t that she was being self-absorbed, rather it was because with one look, one could tell that that blue sapphire ring in the living room was from Lu Lixing. As for why he bought it, the reason was pretty obvious.
His mother already passed on and he practically had no female relatives he was close to. If the ring wasn’t intended for her, then Aunt Pei could only be the other receiving party.
Even so, Ji Qingqing felt that the probability of it being for her was greater than the probability of it being intended for Aunt Pei.
Mulling it some more in her head, why would Lu Lixing buy a sapphire ring for her for no reason?
Firstly, they weren’t married, and secondly, it wasn’t even an important anniversary for them. If it wasn’t intended to surprise her, then it most likely had to be their wedding ring.
But a wedding ring is probably a little too early since it’s scheduled for later in July.
Unless Lu Lixing wants to propose to her?
Ji Qingqing mulled over the word in her mouth. Her heart was beating so rapidly that it seemed like it could almost burst from her chest. She stifled her uncontrollable urge to roll about on the bed and instead, took a couple of deep breaths. Her body had curled into a ball from all the excitement and nervousness.
How will Lu Lixing propose then?
Would it be as romantic as TV dramas, with fresh flowers and balloons, or a sky filled with fireworks?
Ji Qingqing closed her eyes. Whenever she imagined that scene briefly, the little heart in her chest couldn’t suppress her excitement and began to pound extremely quickly.
No that won’t do. I need to calm down and not get so excited.
From a look, she could tell it was a surprise Lu Lixing had prepared for her. He definitely must have racked his brains to hide this. Now that she found out about it in advance, she had to appear completely oblivious. And when the right moment arrives, she would need to act surprised as well. To avoid making it awkward for Lu Lixing, she’ll act as if it was her first time seeing the blue sapphire and pretend to be extremely surprised and happy.
Seeing how considerate she was towards Li Lixing, Ji Qingqing was almost feeling touched by herself.
She forced herself to sleep half an hour more before waking up.
Currently, Lu Lixing was the only one in the living room. The black present box on the coffee table was already gone.
“Morning.” Ji Qingqing acted as if nothing had happened.
Ji Qingqing pouted, that was rather good acting.
The porridge on the dining table was still hot. Ji Qingqing took small little sips of the porridge and probed him. “Just now, I heard people talking. Did anyone come over?”
Lu Lixing paused slightly. He shifted his gaze from the book and looked at Ji Qingqing. After thinking for a while, he replied, “People from the program crew.”
Why would a staff member from the program crew speak English here?
Ji Qingqing stifled a laugh. She didn’t feel like exposing him. “Then where are we going today?”
“Chen Shuyi has something going on this afternoon. He wants us to stay here.”
“Has something going on? What is it?”
“It’s probably a surprise. You’ll know about it when the time comes.”
Ji Qingqing nodded and blew on the piping hot porridge.
I’ll quietly sit here and watch you pretend.
