Chapter 164: Boundary
Chapter 164: Boundary Translator: Noodletown Translated Editor: Noodletown Translated Huo Mian had a high IQ and a high EQ, but she had one flaw. When she was with Qin Chu, she would sometimes lose the ability to think. This was also why Qin Chu successfully got her to become his girlfriend back then. She always thought that everything that happened was destiny. No matter how rational and perfect she was, she easily fell apart in front of Qin Chu. Therefore, when Qin Chu kissed her, she wanted to resist, but she couldn't summon any strength. Or maybe, her body was just being honest about not wanting to push him away and wanted him and his unique scent to be forever hers. When the students were on break, the school often broadcasted songs to help them relieve stress. As if it was right on cue, music flowed onto the field… "Going back to the starting point again, seeing that innocent face of yours in my memory. It's hard to believe that today is finally the day. The old photo hidden under the table, linking countless memories together. This boy is going on a final date with that girl today. Going back to the starting point again, standing dumbly in front of the mirror. Clumsily tying up a red necktie. Combing my hair to look like an adult and putting on a handsome suit. Thinking that when I see you later, you must be prettier than what I expect. I really want to go back to those years when we were still young. Back to the classroom when I am sitting in front of you, purposely teasing you so you would gently scold me. The pairing arrangements on the blackboard, are you willing to separate them? No matter who sits with whom, he will still love her. All the heavy rain that we missed those years, all the romance that we missed those years. I really want to hold you tightly in my arms, to hold onto the courage that I never managed to possess. I used to dream about conquering the world, to only realize in the end that every little thing in my world revolves around you only. All the heavy rain that we missed those years, all the romance that we missed those years. I really want to tell you that I have never really forgotten. The night sky was filled with twinkling stars and the promise we made in a parallel universe. If we can meet again, I will hold you tightly in my arms this time. Hugging you tightly…" Hu Xia's Those Years was playing at the perfect moment, fitting the atmosphere between the two extremely well. Huo Mian was a woman with complex emotions, and, at that moment, she was extremely moved. She thought back at her and Qin Chu all those years ago and couldn't help but wrap her arms around his broad shoulders, hugging him tightly. They've already missed out on seven years... how many more 'seven years' were left in their lives? Qin Chu's heart filled with butterflies. Since they reunited, this was the first time Huo Mian hugged him. That gentle kiss lasted for 3 minutes and 50 seconds, the same length as that song. Finally, Qin Chu held Huo Mian's hand in his as they walked out of the campus in silence. Neither of them talked again until they got home. Once they were home, Huo Mian felt a little sleepy, so she took a hot shower in her bedroom. However, as soon as she left the bathroom, Qin Chu basically pounced on her, pushing her down onto the bed. "Qin Chu…" Huo Mian was a little nervous. "Mian, I don't want to wait anymore…" Then, Qin Chu tugged at Huo Mian's bathrobe until it fell off, his warm palm tightening around her pale shoulders. "Qin Chu, I don't…" Qin Chu's tongue invaded her mouth before she could finish her sentence. This kiss was no longer gentle like the one they shared at school. It was an aggressive invasion, leaving her no room to think. Huo Mian's mind went blurry and heavy; she couldn't think about anything else. Qin Chu seemed to have control over everything… They've been married for a while now but didn't do much else except kissing. Naturally, Qin Chu wanted to because he had always been clear about his feelings towards Huo Mian. However, Huo Mian was struggling to admit her own feelings, because she didn't think that she would be able to spend the rest of her life with him. She was still thinking about divorce and didn't want to give him too much hope. Huo Mian believed that if a woman gave both her heart and body to a man, she would lose for sure. She needed an escape route, so she always tried to keep that line drawn between them. Qin Chu looked at Huo Mian through the small ray of moonlight that shone through the crack between the curtains. She was under his body, and he felt a sense of impulsivity taking over. He had never felt like that before. He knew, at that moment, lust had taken over his rationality.
