COLD CEO AND ARROGANT WIFE, VOLUME 4 - Season 7 Episode 13
When Raelle was in Shui Xian’s office, she wasn’t curious about looking around at all. She just look off her coat and hung it at the side. Then she just sat down to wait for Shui Xian. As for why she didn’t look around, first, she was not such a curious person. Second, Shui Xian had already shown her every nook and cranny of his office during several of their video calls.
Meanwhile, Shui Xian had just come to the door of his office and found Ma Jin just standing there. “Are you guarding the door?” asked Shui Xian as he held the door handle and opened it.
The door was only pushed slightly open when Ma Jin informed him, “Master Xian, someone is waiting inside for a meeting with you.”
Shui Xian frowned at him in displeasure, “Don’t you know that my lunchtime is off-limits? I only have a meeting with my wife during lunchtime.”
With that, he pushed open the door and heard that familiar voice, “What a surprise then! It is really your wife who came for the meeting.”
Shui Xian was stunned to his place for a whole minute wondering if he was hallucinating right now. That voice… His eyes drifted towards the figure that just stood up and turned to look at him. Shui Xian’s eyes widened before happiness engulfed him.
“Are you just gonna stand there?” asked Raelle.
Shui Xian entered the shut the door with a bang before he almost ran to her side and pulled her in his arms for a hug. “Wow! It’s really my wife!” He sounded like he was still processing this fact. What a real fool!
“Should I pinch you? Maybe it’ll be easier to believe in this reality?” suggested Raelle.
Shui Xian grinned as he pushed her slightly away and held her face in his hands before saying, “I have an even better idea!” And then, he sealed her lips with his own. His lips moved against hers in sync while he felt like sweetness was dripping down his throat. As their lips parted, he licked her lips saying, “Sweet! Too sweet!”
“I won’t even bother wasting my time questioning how it’s sweet again,” said Raelle which made Shui Xian grin foolishly. “But you seem very excited for some reason? Usually, you see me after a whole day at home but don’t look like how you are now.”
“That’s because I know I’ll always see you at home,” said Shui Xian. He held her hand in his own as he went on, “But this is a surprise. I wasn’t expecting to see you here.”
“I thought it wasn’t really a surprise. You won the bet. I had to come,” reminded Raelle.
“But I didn’t think you’d come so soon,” said Shui Xian. Although he knew she’d hold up her side of the deal, he didn’t think she’ll really show up on Monday!
“So, should I go back and come another day?”
Shui Xian pulled her over to the sofa and rubbed her head, “Nonsense! How can I send you back when you’re here? You’re already in my territory, how can I let you escape it so soon?”
“I’m the one talking nonsense or are you?”
Shui Xian tsked at that and before he could speak, there was a knock on the door before Ma Jin pushed open the door, “Sir, there are some things that Madam brought for you.”
Shui Xian raised his brows and looked at her. But before he could ask, a few people came inside and placed three boxes on the table before they left. Shui Xian went to the door and opened it to say to Ma Jin, “Shoo! Disappear already! Don’t disturb!” And then he not only closed the door but also locked it. How can he let anyone disturb his time right now?
He went up to Raelle again and asked, “What are these?”
“That’s our lunch,” replied Raelle. “Since I’m here, won’t we have lunch together?”
Shui Xian nodded since that’s the case. “And the last one?” His eyes were actually on the last one since it wasn’t a wooden box like the other two. It was cardboard box and it even had a ribbon on it.
“This one is,” said Raelle. She untied the ribbon and opened the box before presenting it to him. “For you!”
Shui Xian looked at the gorgeous flower arrangement with chocolates spread around and then looked at her face. He licked his lips and smiled.
“What is this?” he asked her with a doting look in his eyes.
“I brought your two favorite things to you,” was Raelle’s answer.
“Oh?” Shui Xian looked at the flower box again and then asked, “I guess chocolates have become my favorite in the last few years but flowers? Hmm?” He couldn’t say flowers were his absolute favorites.
“Oh, I wasn’t talking about the flowers,” said Raelle which surprised Shui Xian.
“Huh? Then what?”
“I said I brought two of your favorite things to you,” Shui Xian nodded his head in agreement while she went on, “The second thing is chocolates. And the first one is…”
“The first one is?” he asked staring into her eyes.
“Me!” she answered. “I was talking about myself.”
Shui Xian was dumbfounded when he heard that reply from her. He was speechless for a moment but then again, it wasn’t all that surprising either.
Seeing how he wasn’t saying anything, Raelle said, “Don’t tell me I’m not in your favorites?”
“How is that possible?” Shui Xian hurriedly spoke up.
“Then? Why aren’t you talking? Or is it that chocolates take the first position? That can’t happen, I don’t like being in second place.”
Shui Xian leaned down and dropped a kiss on her neck which stopped Raelle from continuing. He kissed her ear next and said in a low voice, “You’re absolutely on the top of the list. Always!”
“That sounds better,” was Raelle’s reply which made him laugh and drop his head on her shoulder to lean on.
