Unexpected Second Chance at Love - Chapter 915 He really meant peace and quiet
915 He really meant peace and quiet
While the subordinates began to busy their night in Retro, Yue Ling and Lu Tian finished dinner with the Lu family. The couple had gathered their belongings and were on their way out of the house.
“Ah Ling, I can’t believe you are leaving.”
Madam Lu sobs without tears as she walks her soon-to-be daughter-in-law and son out the door. She held onto Yue Ling’s arm like a child bidding her mother farewell.
“Promise you will come to visit often. My heart aches whenever I wonder if you are eating or hurt anywhere.”
She knows Yue Ling is a strong woman, but she can’t help but worry for the girl.
Especially with Grandfather Ji’s condition, she is scared that Yue Ling will not be able to handle the news.
Unaware of the reason behind Madam Lu’s sulking, Yue Ling smiles at the middle-aged woman. She gently pats the woman’s hand and reassures her.
“Don’t worry. I have Tian by my side, and I will convince him for us to visit more often.”
Madam Lu was put at ease by her words. She nods her head and reluctantly lets go of Yue Ling’s arm.
“It’s getting late, so you and Tian better head home.”
She stares at Yue Ling for a long second before turning her attention to her eldest son.
“Tian, the weather is colder now, so ensure Ah Ling wears warmly when you leave the house. Also, make sure that the heater is on at all times. Ah Ling cannot catch a cold. If she does, I will force my way to move in with you.”
Lu Tian raised an eyebrow at his mother. He wasn’t angry that his mother didn’t care about him but was intrigued by her direct feelings toward his wife.
However, knowing his mother is right, he nods his head.
Yue Ling was left baffled again by the mother and son. She faintly clears he throat and turns to look at Old Lu, then back at Madam Lu.
“Thank you for the lovely dinner.”
Her words fell as each individual bid one another farewell.
Madam Lu and Old Lu watch as the young couple enter the car and drive away.
As the car’s back lights further into the distance, Madam Lu leans on her husband’s shoulder. Her expression turns into sympathy, and her heart aches with pain.
“Ah Ling has been through so much already. I hope she will be alright.”
Old Lu stares at his son’s car before looking up at the dark sky. The sound of rain hitting the ground made his head heavier than usual.
However, he hugs his wife and gently squeezes her.
“Everything will be fine. The best we can do is be there for Ah Ling and Jingxu when the time comes.”
Despite what the future holds, he promises to watch over the two children. He will not let anything come to them and make sure they don’t fall into a world of darkness.
He sees that Lu Tian’s car is no longer in view and guides his wife back inside the house.
Time swiftly passed as Yue Ling, and Lu Tian arrived home and prepared for bed.
Yue Ling had just finished getting dressed after a shower and walked inside the bedroom while drying her hair with a towel. She sees Lu Tian sitting on the bed with a few documents in hand, and the only light source is the lamp on his bedside table.
“Do you still have work to finish?”
Hearing her voice that calms his mind, Lu Tian turns his head to her. He smiles at her and then sets the piece of document in his hand down.
He reaches for the blanket and pulls it enough for her to get in bed.
“Work can wait. Come. I’ll help you dry your hair.”
Yue Ling couldn’t help but return a smile. She walks to the bed and sits down. Her back was to him, and she handed him the towel.
“I won’t decline your offer then.”
Lu Tian sat up in his position and took the towel from her. He carefully dried her hair, ensuring he didn’t hurt her.
“What did you and my mother talk about?”
He was aware of their discussion regarding the wedding, but he didn’t know the details.
Yue Ling ever so lightly pursed her lips at the question. Fortunately, she has turned away from Lu Tian, or else he would mistake her perplexed expression as one of disapproval.
She sighs, and her posture turns sluggish, but she doesn’t fall.
“We talked about our wedding. She showed me a lot of wedding venues and locations, but….”
She paused in her words to find the right words to say, but Lu Tian finished the sentence for her.
“But you think she’s being excessive.”
Yue Ling could only blink her eyes at his words. The frown on her face deepened, and she raised her shoulder as her neck shrunk like a turtle hiding from the world.
“Just a little bit.”
Seeing her behavior from behind, Lu Tian lets out a chuckle while continuing to dry her hair.
He looks down at her hair in his hand, and his eyes soften to the core.
“If there’s anything you don’t like, just tell my mother. I’m sure she will understand.”
Yue Ling’s expression turned unreadable. Her eyes search through the blank space in front of her like she is looking for answers.
After a long silence, she turns around to look at him, causing her hair to fall out of his grasp.
She batted her eyes at him and took in the sight of his entire being.
“Tian, what kind of wedding do you want?”
It had always been about what she wanted, and nobody asked him. What if there was something he disliked, but he just went along with it because of her?
Lu Tian did not look at his wife but at his now empty hand. His head slowly lifted to meet her but was swept into the abyss of her bluish-green eyes.
No matter how many times he sees her, she is always beautiful. Even he sometimes questions if this was all but a dream.
If it is a dream, he hopes never to wake up from it.
He sets the towel on the bedside table and reaches for her hands.
“I don’t care what kind of wedding we have as long as I have you.”
Yue Ling turned flustered by him but was touched at the same time. She stares with the eyes of a tiger as if she is trying to see if he is lying.
Her eyes narrowed slightly, and she smiled at him.
“Even if it rains on our wedding? What if there was a big storm on the big day?”
Lu Tian shrugs his shoulders with indifference and throws a question back at her.
“Will you be there?”
Hearing this, Yue Ling was quickly put in a tight position. She pouts with cheeks like that of a chipmunk and ponders.
Would she be alright if a heavy storm occurred on her wedding day?
After careful thinking, she nods her head once to answer him. She looked at him and parted her lip to voice her answer, but her eyes trembled when his face leaned in on her.
Lu Tian seals her lips, making her swallow the words she wants to say.
His sudden kiss took Yue Ling by surprise. Her face turned redder than it already was, and she closed her eyes, giving in to the sweetness of his lips.
Just when she thought to deepen their kiss, he suddenly pulled away, only to press his forehead against her.
“As long as you’re there, whether it rains or shines on our wedding, it doesn’t matter to me.”
Yue Ling felt disappointed that their kiss had ended, but when she heard his words, it was as if an arrow had shot into her heart. The kind of arrow that made her adore the man in front of her more.
She couldn’t help but wrap her arms around his waist and rest her cheek on his chest.
“I feel like the luckiest woman to have you.”
She wanted to channel all her love into him. To which he received well.
Lu Tian hugs her back and pulls her into a tighter embrace. He pecks the top of her head before resting his chin on her.
“And I feel like the luckiest man to have you.”
Yue Ling swore her heart could not handle his sweet words, primarily when Lu Tian is supposedly known as a cold-blooded man.
She tilts her head back to look up at him and kisses him on the chin.
His head looks down at her, and he smiles before taking in the open-minded invitation to capture her lips.
He tightens his hold of her, pulling her closer as if kneading her into one with him.
Every shift kiss gave an astonishing hint of passionate ecstasy that grew with every second.
Yue Ling shuddered with a sweet sensation and clutched his shoulder for strength. Her breathing grew rapid, and she was losing air, but she still remembered to breathe.
When the room was about to turn heated, Lu Tian suddenly pulled away on a restrained impulse.
His dark eyes gazed brazenly into hers before taking in the sight of her flustered face.
He steadied the beastly side of him and caressed her hair behind her right ear.
“You had a long day. Get some rest.”
He gently lays her onto the bed and then pulls the blanket over her. Of course, he didn’t forget to tuck her in like a baby.
“I’ll turn off the lights for peace and quiet.”
Yue Ling lay as frozen as a statue. She stared at the white ceiling and was confused about what had just happened.
Weren’t they sharing a passionate kiss? She even thought that they were going to go all the way.
Was she the only one who thought about it?
However, thinking of his mention of peace and quiet, she slowly turns her head to the left.
She watches as he turns off the lamp, letting darkness fill the room. He returned to her but made no move except to cuddle with her.
She stared at the now-dark ceiling and held the blanket over her chest. Her eyes blinked a few times, and she sighed inside with faint disappointment.
Now she was convinced when he said peace and quiet. He really meant peace and quiet.
