The room fell silent.
Xue Xi sat there and felt her mind go blank. This feeling was very unfamiliar. After all, ever since she was young, her mind had been active. It felt like a huge and empty warehouse. She wanted to move all kinds of knowledge inside. Sometimes, she would multitask and never felt that her brain was not enough.
However, at this moment, she felt as though it had stopped. She paused and wanted to say something to ease the awkwardness, but she did not know what to say.
Just as she was at a loss and felt that she did not know what to do, she heard laughter. The man slowly said, “Little kid, it’s your birthday after the new year.”
Xue Xi: “?”
She did not understand. “Huh?”
“After your birthday, you’ll be 20 years old and be all grown up.”
Xue Xi: “…”
Xue Xi: “!!!”
She suddenly understood what he meant and blushed. Just as she was about to say something, she suddenly opened her eyes.
The sky outside was bright. A ray of sunlight shone in and landed on her face. She was in a daze and had yet to regain her senses.
After a while, she suddenly reacted.
So… everything last night was a dream!
But why did she suddenly dream of this? Moreover, it was too realistic, right? In the dream, the man’s breath when he spoke, the warmth of his large hand on her waist, and the rough touch with his sharp fingertips…
At this thought, the details of the dream were displayed in front of her again, making Xue Xi cover her face.
She took a deep breath, lifted the blanket, and got off the bed.
The heater in the room was turned on sufficiently, so she washed up barefoot before pushing open the door. Just as she pushed open the door, she heard a conversation coming from the master bedroom.
Xue Sheng: “I’m too sleepy. Let me sleep for a while more.”
Ye Li: “Why would you be sleepy? You went to sleep at 10 PM last night. Tell me, did you go and act like a thief in the middle of the night?!”
Xue Sheng: “…I didn’t. I was just afraid that Xiao Xiang would sneak into Xixi’s room if I fell asleep. That’s why I didn’t sleep last night and stayed at the door to guard Xixi for the whole night! I’m so sleepy now. Don’t stop me and let me catch up on some sleep before going to the old mansion.”
Ye Li: “…”
After that, Ye Li complained that Xue Sheng had nothing better to do and even said that Xiao Xiang was a good child who knew his limits.
Xue Xi did not listen carefully and could not help but put her palm on her forehead.
She had originally thought that what happened last night was not a dream, but after hearing Xue Sheng’s words… Her father had been guarding her for the entire night and Xiang Huai definitely could not enter. Hence, it was really a dream…
Could it be that she was really growing older and more impatient? Why would she have such a dream?
It must be because of those novels she read yesterday!
That author called “Young Master Yan” was really too free. Why did they write such a novel?! They were misleading others!
Just as she was feeling vexed, she heard the door creak. Turning around, she saw Xiang Huai, who had slept the entire night, walking out of his room with a full expression.
His cold and white face was a little red because he slept well.
How could he have been a thief in my room last night?
Once again, she was certain that that was really a dream!
Xue Xi took a deep breath and ignored Xiang Huai. She walked downstairs and had just taken two steps when she saw Xiang Huai following beside her. “Little kid, did you sleep well last night?”
Xue Xi replied coldly, “So-so.”
“Sigh.” Xiang Huai sighed. His next words almost made Xue Xi fall down the stairs. “I had a dream. I dreamed that I sneaked into your room last night.”
Xue Xi: “!!!!”
The corners of Xue Xi’s lips twitched before she turned to look at Xiang Huai again. She wanted to see what this man meant, but she only saw a confused expression on his face. “Why would I have this dream? However, there are also people who say that couples might have some spiritual resonance. To be precise, it’s the effect of brainwaves. So, little kid, did you dream about me yesterday?”
Xue Xi, who had always been slow-witted and slow to react, spoke the moment Xiang Huai said that.
Xiang Huai paused. “Really?”
Xue Xi quickened her pace and went downstairs. “I’m hungry.”
What she meant was: Hurry up and eat. Shut up!
Xiang Huai followed behind Xue Xi and the two of them went to the dining room. When the housekeeper, Xiao Fang, saw them, she served their breakfast.
Xue Xi had always liked Chinese breakfast, so she had a bowl of porridge and a few little buns.
Just as she stuffed a little bun into her mouth, she saw Xiang Huai suddenly look up. “Little kid, a few days after the new year, it’ll be your birthday, right?”
