There were tears on her Ning Zhiqing cheeks, and in her panic, she didn’t realize the taste that the other party gave her.
Her pale face and tear-filled eyes gave her the impression of being perplexed and pitiful.
Axin raised her hands and touched the tears in the corner of Ning Zhiqing’s eyes and wiped them. The other party only kept crying and looking at her.
” Zhiqing, why are you sobbing? ”
Axin asked softly while thinking about the moment she felt Zhiqing’s lips and how she wanted to get a bit closer.
So she hugged Ning Zhiqing’s waist, inclined towards Ning Zhiqing’s cheeks, and licked Ning Zhiqing’s tears by sticking out her tongue.
Her tears are salty and warm.
This action of her made Ning Zhiqing, who was crying completely shocked, in an instant all the bad thoughts that just popped up in her mind disappeared. She just stood there in the bath, letting Axin hug her.
Axin…Axin, she just kissed my tears?
Ning Zhiqing’s brain was lagging, she couldn’t get any response out of her.
Before she was scared but now, she is totally stunned because of the person who is holding her, because of the idea of losing the person who is in front to f her.
Now she is so close she can feel her body temperature directly with no water curtain between them.
Axin…Are not you a bit baddie?
” Zhiqing, why are you crying? Did anyone bully you? ”
Axin whispered in Ning Zhiqing’s ears and asked gently again, spreading her warm breath all over Ning Zhiqing, making her pale face blush.
Axin, are not we too close?
Isn’t it different?
Doesn’t Axin feel it differently?
She didn’t dare to look into Axin’s eyes for answers.
” Who bullied you? ” She can feel that Axin’s soft voice gradually running out of its warmth and there was a three-point of coldness. She hugged Ning Zhiqing more closely and whispered,” Who bullied you to make you cry, Zhiqing tell me.”
Ning Zhiqing couldn’t take the ambiguity between them anymore. She tried to get a little farther but was also hesitant to do so.
Finally, she braced up her courage with gritted teeth and even clutched the slender waist of Axin.
The soft-touch made her tremble.
She couldn’t control her emotions anymore.” No, no. Axin nobody bullied me.”
” Then why you are crying? I can see fear in your eyes. Fear of losing someone? What happened?” Axin wanted to know the answer. Although she asked it slowly and softly, only she knew how desperate and eager she was now to hear the answer from her mouth.
Her conscious told her it is very important to her.
Ning Zhiqing remembered what had just happened here when her tears were out of her control for the fear of losing Axin. She hugged Axin’s waist, settled her chin on Axin’s shoulder, and whispered, ” I am afraid that Axin would want me anymore. ”
” Because of the burden of court duties? Ministers bad performance? Zhiqing don’t have to worry about this.”
Ning Zhiqing pouted her mouth and said in a relaxed tone,” It is so troublesome and i cannot finish all the memorials on time. Thankfully, Helian Fu has grown up and can help in this regard.”
” Then why, why did Zhiqing presume I wouldn’t like you? ” Axin inquired while gently placing her warm palm on Ning Zhiqing’s exposed back.
Ning Zhiqing’s body got numb, and she almost moaned.
Ning Zhiqing pursed her lips tightly. She was quiet for a while and Axin also didn’t compel her, quietly waiting for her answer.
Mist in the air has already moistened their hair and the underclothes on Ning Zhiqing body were also soaked wet but she was battling in her heart and didn’t care about it at all.
” Your clothes are all wet. Let me take them off.” While she was immersed in her thoughts, she suddenly heard the words of Axin. Her whole face got red as a cherry.
She stood there bewildered and didn’t dare to make any movement.
Take all…all off.
“While Zhiqing is busy arranging her thoughts and words to answer my question, I will help you.”
Ning Zhiqing has given no response and only felt that the warm palm on her back moved away and next there was a touch of the warmness of fingers on the back of her neck. That finger pulled the strings of her belly band and opened her apron. After removing it, set it aside.
Ning Zhiqing: Axin, you are really bad.
Now that there is already some zone between them, even in the mist, they can undoubtedly see others’ bodies.
Ning Zhiqing was scared to look at it.
It is cruel.
Does Axin know about her feeling?
” Hair got wet too, let them loose.”
In a moment, her hair also got loosened. Axin’s hair was the same too. Both of their long hairs fell in the bathtub and got submerged in the water.
” Zhiqing, have you figured out of it? ”
” What? ”
Ning Zhiqing in confusion raised her eyes, but after that, she couldn’t move her eyes away. She kept looking at the Axin eyes that were full of pampering and warmness.
How can she be even willing to look away?
She smiled, ” I….”
Ning Zhiqing took a deep breath and decided to open her heart to her.
Anyway, she has come to this extent. Even if she tried to hide it again, Axin would know about her, eventually.
