Chapter 1407: Subtly Teaching His Wife
Gu Nianzhi never expected Huo Shaoheng to hear her. She had been hiding under the table while whispering in a soft voice.
Even though she had just been bragging, she felt guilty after Huo Shaoheng caught her red-handed…
“Aren’t you going to come out?” Huo Shaoheng tilted his head and stuffed his hands in his pockets. He took a step back and stared at her under the table silently.
Gu Nianzhi blinked, grabbed her phone, and rushed out. She knelt on the ground partially and hugged Huo Shaoheng’s thigh.
“What are you doing?” a solemn expression was plastered on Huo Shaoheng’s face as he lifted his leg slightly.
“Hugging your thigh!” Gu Nianzhi announced confidently. “If my parents realized that their son-in-law was Huo Shao, they definitely would not let me go on a blind date.”
Huo Shaoheng shook his head and reached out a hand to grab her arm. He pulled her out from under the table and said helplessly, “Why are you misbehaving in this manner?”
Then, he took Gu Nianzhi’s phone from her hand. He realized that she was still on the phone, and so he quickly hung up the call.
On the other end of the phone, Xiao Ye was caught off guard. She had heard rumors about her boss and his fiancée’s ‘Daily routine of sweet love’. Her face suddenly burned as hot as fire, as though she had become privy to some incredible secret…
She held her face in her hands and leapt down from the window sill. She circled her room a few times and realized that her heart was still racing. She had no choice but to rush downstairs and run to the playground in the courtyard.
Gu Nianzhi was dragged out from under the table by Huo Shaoheng.
Huo Shaoheng let go of her hand and she quickly grabbed it again. She gazed at Huo Shaoheng ingratiatingly and smiled sweetly. She was like the best lychee honey, exuding a sweet fragrance.
Unfortunately, Huo Shaoheng did not want to eat sweet things right now. He was not going to fall for her trick.
He lowered his head and looked at her from the corner of his eyes. “… You want to go on a blind date?”
“No, no, I’m was just casually bragging to others…”
Gu Nianzhi was so nervous that she blurted out in Yin Shixiong’s hometown dialect.
“That’s fine, what kind of man do you fancy? Make a list.” Huo Shaoheng looked at her without batting an eyelid. He was determined to snuff out this little thought of hers. He continued lightly, “Write down your ideal height, weight, family background, looks, personality, and specialty. I’ll find them for you.”
Gu Nianzhi was dumbfounded. “Huo Shao…”
“You’re so excited that you can’t even speak?” Huo Shaoheng leaned over slowly and whispered into her ear. His voice was deep, magnetic, and filled with a threatening allure, “Although we’re already married, if Mrs. Huo wants to go on a blind date, I can accompany you to the end…”
Gu Nianzhi’s ears were almost melted by his melodious voice.
Her face was flushed, and her usual glib tongue was no longer effective. All she knew was that her small hand was gripping the corner of Huo Shaoheng’s shirt tightly.
Huo Shaoheng glanced down at her hand that was gripping the corner of his shirt. “… Let go.”
“I won’t let go.” Gu Nianzhi shook her head.
Huo Shaoheng looked at her for a while. Then, he suddenly reached out to unbutton his shirt.
Gu Nianzhi was shocked. She assumed that Huo Shaoheng wanted to do something and hence she subconsciously retracted her hand and took two steps back. Her face was red as she said, “Why are you taking off your clothes in broad daylight?”
Gu Nianzhi released her grasp and Huo Shaoheng no longer continued to unbutton his shirt. He brushed his sleeves with a half-smile and turned around to leave.
Gu Nianzhi finally realized that she had been fooled by him!
He didn’t want to do it with her at all!
He simply wanted her to let go…
He was too cunning.
Gu Nianzhi stared blankly at the restaurant for a while before finally catching up.
Although she dawdled in the restaurant for a long time, Huo Shaoheng had only just reached the spiral staircase…
How slow was he?
Was he moving at a snail’s pace?
Gu Nianzhi rolled her black eyes and finally understood.
She ran over with a smile and held Huo Shaoheng’s arm from behind. “Huo Shao, are you going upstairs? Why are you walking so slowly? Were you waiting for me?”
Huo Shaoheng replied calmly, “Someone hurt my leg in the restaurant just now.”
Gu responded, “…”
She had merely rushed over to hug his leg. Simply hugging his leg had caused him to break his leg?
Gu Nianzhi rolled her eyes inwardly.
However, she was in the wrong today, and she couldn’t be stubborn.
She lowered her head and carefully followed Huo Shaoheng to the second floor.
When they reached the corridor between their rooms, Huo Shaoheng didn’t even look at her. He pushed the door open and entered his own room.
Gu Nianzhi wanted to follow him in, but she was worried that Huo Shaoheng would still be angry. It would be embarrassing if he chased her out.
She did not dare to rush in as she had done in the past. She paced nervously around Huo Shaoheng’s door.
She walked one round before glancing Huo Shaoheng’s door. Then, she walked another round before looking at Huo Shaoheng’s door.
Huo Shaoheng stared at the surveillance camera in his room and felt dizzy.
However, he still waited for a while before saying calmly, “… Why aren’t you coming in?”
The voice came from inside the room, and Gu Nianzhi noticed that the door was ajar. Huo Shaoheng had not closed the door at all.
She secretly heaved a sigh of relief, before pushing open Huo Shaoheng’s door and walking in.
Huo Shaoheng was standing by the door.
Huo Shaoheng closed the door behind her after she entered.
When Gu Nianzhi turned around, Huo Shaoheng had already walked up to her. He rested one hand on the back of her neck and placed the other on her waist.
She was forced to raise her head slightly to receive Huo Shaoheng’s kiss.
After the kiss, Huo Shaoheng pressed his hand against her forehead and said in a low voice, “Don’t say things like that in the future. You can’t even joke about it.”
His voice was deep and mellow, he seemed to be panting slightly. It was incredibly seductive.
Gu Nianzhi was lost in thought. She mustered up her courage and retorted, “It was just a joke. Don’t you guys like to make jokes like this the most?”
She often heard Yin Shixiong and Zhao Liangze argue with each other.
“No, I don’t make jokes like this.” Huo Shaoheng cupped her face. Her palm-sized face was like a rosebud in his hands. His thumb caressed the red lips that he had kissed. He calmly said, “You can’t joke around like that, no matter how trivial it is.”
His words struck Gu Nianzhi’s heart.
She quickly nodded, completely convinced. “Huo Shao, I was wrong. I won’t do it again.”
Huo Shaoheng smiled.
His smile melted the solemn expression on her face. They were extremely close and… she wanted to kiss him.
Gu Nianzhi couldn’t help but stand on her tiptoes, before kissing Huo Shaoheng’s lips.
Huo Shaoheng kissed her back gently. He didn’t kiss her as roughly as he usually did, as if he wanted to swallow her whole. On the contrary, he kissed her with the kind of tenderness that women yearned for.
Gu Nianzhi was almost turned into a pool of water by his kiss.
Huo Shaoheng simply kissed her. Now was not the time to take it to the next level.
However, Gu Nianzhi did not know that her gentleness in front of him made him unable to stop.
Before he lost control of himself, Huo Shaoheng exerted self-control and shifted his lips away. He pulled her into his arms and changed the subject. “What do you want to do today?”
Gu Nianzhi fell from the clouds in a daze. Only then did she remember what she had been preparing for the whole morning.
She lay in Huo Shaoheng’s arms and panted for a while before saying, “I want to visit my parents at the cemetery today. I want to burn that newspaper for them to see.”
It was the newspaper that published their deeds.
“… I have been wanting to visit them since last month. I want to visit them once a month from now on, is that okay?”
Gu Nianzhi asked for Huo Shaoheng’s opinion.
Huo Shaoheng patted her little face. “You can go whenever you want. Who says you have to stick to a day to visit your parents?”
Gu Nianzhi laughed and hugged Huo Shaoheng’s slender waist. “You’re not angry anymore?”
“I’ll continue to be angry if you keep thinking about it.” Huo Shaoheng pulled her arm away. “Go and get ready.”
Gu Nianzhi nodded and went back to her room to pack her things.
She took the newspaper that contained her parents’ stories, two bouquets of flowers, and some snacks. They headed to the national cemetery of martyrs with Huo Shaoheng.
However, just before they reached her parents’ grave, they noticed that there were a crowd of people there. Looking ahead, there were many people crowding around her parents’ grave.
Some were laying wreaths while others were giving speeches.
There were also elementary school students lining up in front of her parents’ grave, listening to the teacher’s stories about the people who laid there.
Not a trace of impurity could be seen in their adoring and respectful eyes. Gu Nianzhi felt that her eyes were about to break out in sweat again.
She held the flowers in her arms and stood under a big tree not far away from the road. She did not walk up to them.
Huo Shaoheng stood beside her with a bag of offerings. He spoke softly, “It should be because of today’s report. It so happened to be a festival, so there are more people here. Look, everyone has not forgotten them.”
This was the best way to repay her parents.
Gu Nianzhi nodded. She stood there with Huo Shaoheng the whole time, watching the endless stream of people coming and going. She actually enjoyed it.
She didn’t feel bored and didn’t even play with her phone the entire day.
It was evening when the crowd finally dispersed. Gu Nianzhi carried the flowers and went to put them on display.
Ten hours had passed. Although the flowers had been specially treated, they were still a little withered.
Gu Nianzhi sprayed water onto it with a small spray bottle and placed some snacks next to it. She whispered, “Dad, Mom, are you guys happy today? Although I’m late, you guys won’t punish me, right?”
She stood alone in front of the graves of Gu Xiangwen and his wife, muttering to herself for a long time. It wasn’t until dusk came that Huo Shaoheng pulled her away.
She turned her head back three times, reluctant to part with them.
Huo Shaoheng turned his head around and said helplessly, “If you want to come again, visit tomorrow. It’s already dark today, hurry up and go back.”
Gu Nianzhi shook her head. “I can’t wallow in this kind of sadness. Dad and mom didn’t do this to make me suffer. I want to live well so they can truly be at ease.”
Therefore, she couldn’t form a psychological attachment to those two graves.
Huo Shaoheng looked at her in surprise and stroked her head for a long time. “Yeah, you’ve really grown up.”
After the two of them went back, Huo Shaoheng personally cooked a sumptuous dinner for her.
After dinner, Gu Nianzhi turned on the computer as she had planned and began to count the assets that Gu Xiangwen had left behind.
