418 Let“s Go Back and Sleep Together
“Mm, they’re pretty spectacular. Lanterns that illuminate the human world.” Gu Bailu turned around and smiled at the newcomer.
When she smiled, it seemed like thousands of flowers had blossomed at the same time, eclipsing the lanterns in the sky.
“What’s in your hand?” The newcomer frowned at the unusual animal she was holding.
“A pet. Why are you here?”
She hadn’t really spoken to him since the shopping incident last time.
He hadn’t shown up while Prince Zi was deeply in love with her. When he did show up in the end, he took Nan Ningxin away.
“Aren’t you feeling bad? Someone pissed you off.” Gu Yunjing stepped forward and stood in front of her.
His eyes were as brilliant as stars.
Gu Bailu looked at him. The man didn’t seem to belong to this world. His pink robe was utterly without blemish.
“I’m indeed pissed.” Gu Bailu didn’t keep it from him.
She found Feng Qingtian inconsiderate. Given how eager and passionate he had been, he could’ve waited a couple of days before abandoning her.
Obviously, Feng Qingtian had never taken her dignity and well-being into account.
“That’s why I’m here. We can be pissed at him together.” Gu Yunjing drew close and patted her. “Why don’t we sleep together tonight?”
Gu Bailu stroked his chest and breathed hot air over his ear. “Sure. Who’s going to be on top, you or me?”
Gu Yunjing’s heart skipped a beat, and his ears turned red.
Gu Bailu burst into laughter. “How many years have you lived, Shao Di?”
Gu Yunjing was puzzled. “Why are you asking about my age?”
“I want to know if you’ve touched a woman before, because you look like an inexperienced virgin.”
Gu Yunjing flushed with anger at Gu Bailu’s sarcasm. “Of course I’ve touched women before.”
Gu Bailu immediately shut up, because she realized that she might’ve hurt the man’s pride.
“That’s great, because I’ve touched men too.” Gu Bailu picked up his hand and said, “Let’s go back and sleep together.”
Gu Yunjing found that hard to believe. “Are we really going to do it?”
“Why not? You’re not married and neither am I. Why can’t we sleep with each other?” said Gu Bailu solemnly.
Gu Yunjing didn’t think that sounded right. “I don’t think anybody should sleep together until they’re married.”
“That does make sense. Should we get married first?” Gu Bailu said after a moment’s thought.
Gu Yunjing was dumbfounded. He didn’t know what to say about this unexpected happiness.
“Isn’t it too soon?”
“Not at all. We’ll be married after we light a couple of candles and pay tribute to the heavens and the earth. Then we can legitimately sleep with each other. Let’s go…” Gu Bailu dragged Gu Yunjing back to the Gu house.
Gu Yunjing was still dumbfounded.
This was completely different from what he had imagined.
Gu Bailu wanted to marry a random guy because she was heartbroken?
She had to be joking.
But it didn’t seem like it, when she asked the servants to prepare the candles.
Gu Yunjing’s head was a mess. He had pined after Gu Bailu for more than a hundred years.
It felt surreal that he could have her so easily.
Gu Bailu lit the candles, and Gu Yunjing asked uncertainly, “Do you really want to marry me?”
“Of course I do. Come here.” Gu Bailu waved her hand at him and placed peanuts and dates on the bed.
