Huo Yunshen had no idea how to respond to her question.
Confessing his own feelings had never been something he was good at.
Because of his hesitation, disappointment could be seen in Xu Xiyan’s eyes. She did not say anything and slowly turned away.
Huo Yunshen looked at her fading back and finally lost himself.
“Jing Xi! Don’t go! Please!” Huo Yunshen shouted. “You’re too important to me! I don’t know how to live without you… Jing Xi…”
Huo Yunshen woke up from his dream, his heart beating faster than a bullet as his sweat had soaked through his white shirt.
“Jing Xi, don’t leave me…” Huo Yunshen mumbled. He was already at his limit, he was about to break down from the fear of losing Xu Xiyan.
Suddenly, the lights turned on and lit the whole room up.
Huo Yunshen squinted and turned to see a thin girl standing near the light switch smiling at him.
“Jing Xi, you’re still here?” Huo Yunshen asked as he wiped the tears from his face.
“Of course I am,” Xu Xiyan smiled. “This is my house.”
Xu Xiyan had also fallen asleep. It was Huo Yunshen’s mumbling that woke her up. She’d guessed that he was having a nightmare and went to turn on the lights.
“Mr. Huo, what were you saying just now?” Xu Xiyan asked with a smile as she slowly walked towards him. “Can you repeat that again?”
“…” Huo Yunshen still had a few memories of the dream he’d had and still remembered how he’d begged for Xu Xiyan to stay.
There was no way that he could say that out loud in front of her now that he was awake.
“What? What did I say just now?” Huo Yunshen asked and began to act like an idiot.
Xu Xiyan rested her arms and head beside him and looked at him with her starry eyes.
“Don’t you remember?” Xu Xiyan joked. “You were calling my name, begging me to not leave you and saying that I’m important to you.”
Xu Xiyan regretted not recording his dream talk to replay it for him to hear.
In her heart, she was happy. Even if Huo Yunshen was saying those things because he was dreaming, it was still worth it to hear those words come from his mouth.
“…” Huo Yunshen’s face reddened. It was both awkward and embarrassing.
“I’m just joking,” Xu Xiyan laughed as she tried to help him with his awkwardness.
“But I’m not joking at all,” Huo Yunshen said. Those were his true feelings, there was no way that he was joking about it.
“I got it.” Xu Xiyan smiled and got up. “Now that you’re awake, I’ll go heat up the food.”
In just a few minutes, Xu Xiyan placed what was supposed to have been lunch on the table as their dinner. She went back to the living room and pushed Huo Yunshen to the dining table.
Xu Xiyan filled a bowl with rice, picked up a few vegetables with her chopsticks and was about to feed Huo Yunshen when he stopped her without thinking.
