The An family.
Papa An’s dishes were spread out on the dinner table and he greeted Qi Yanxi warmly.
“Make yourself at home. It’s been a while since we last met. You look taller. Boys grow so fast.” Papa An smiled amiably, which made Qi Yanxi a little uneasy.
Growing up, his father had been exceptionally strict with him. His parents divorced when he was a little older and they each had a new family now. It was safe to say that Qi Yanxi knew very little about familial love.
That was also why he was so violent all the time.
Looking at his bowl, which was filled to the brim with the food Papa An had picked for him, he lowered his voice and mumbled, “Thank you…”
“Enough talking! I’m having that if you don’t eat it!” An Xiaxia bitterly eyed the meat in his bowl.
Sheng Yize gave her little head a knock and darted her a warning look, at which An Xiaxia behaved herself right away.
An Yibei immediately picked up on the unusual interaction between the two and darted a piercing look at his sister. “Xiaxia, you’re not in love, are you?”
“No… I’m not!” An Xiaxia said weakly.
“Oh, so have you quarreled with your boyfriend lately?” An Yibei baited.
The naive Xiaxia took it right away and frowned. “I did… He was terrible to me and told me off this afternoon…”
Xiaxia immediately covered her mouth in regret!
Had she just admitted it herself?!
An Yibei gave her a vicious “I knew it” look.
He Jiayu and Chi Yuanfeng exchanged a look, both surprised.
Papa An was much calmer and even smiled when he said, “The boy Xiaxia likes must be a really nice person.”
An Xiaxia shyly covered her cheeks with her palms and looked involuntarily at Sheng Yize.
It just so happened that Sheng Yize and Qi Yanxi were sitting next to each other, which misled An Yibei a little.
“Oh? Is it the one on the left or on the right?” An Yibei’s chopsticks grated together as he asked in an intimidating voice.
Seeing that her big brother was about to reach for a knife, An Xiaxia gave in right away and sold her boyfriend out. She guiltily pointed her little finger at Sheng Yize.
Sheng Yize cleared his throat and didn’t cringe. He darted her a look in resignation and said mildly, “Sorry, I shouldn’t have scolded you.”
The ebony chopsticks in An Yibei’s hands snapped in two and he smacked them on the table.
“You brat! How dare you date my little sister!” He ferociously rolled up his sleeves, which scared An Xiaxia out of her wits.
“Yibei.” Papa An stopped his son and gave a little cough. “Have you two finished? Go back to your rooms if you want to, but don’t stay up too late. I don’t mind that you start dating now, but you have to know your boundaries and it mustn’t affect your studies.”
An Xiaxia nodded repeatedly, while Sheng Yize was a little embarrassed but touched at the same time.
Her father was indeed a gentle and kind middle-aged man.
The two of them went back to their rooms one after another, leaving An Yibei and Qi Yanxi behind at the table with very dark faces.
One was because his baby sister had just gotten stolen away, while the other was because he had lost to Sheng Yize once again!
“Bastard! Worthless scumbag!”
The two exchanged a look and somehow began to appreciate each other for a moment there.
An Xiaxia dove onto her little bed and rolled around with her duvet in her arms and flushed cheeks.
She wasn’t resisting it like she had imagined she would, nor was it anything scary. So, this was what… falling in love felt like…
The two of them seemed to have their own little secrets now, which was sweet and beautiful.
The fantasy was shattered a moment later by an incoming message from Sheng Yize —
“Don’t forget to memorize your poems. I’ll do a random check tomorrow.”
An Xiaxia fell into a heap on her bed.
Why did she have such a strict boyfriend?

She replied to the message with shaking fingers. “Aren’t we a couple now? Shouldn’t we be happily dating now? Aren’t you supposed to be loving me, doting on me, and doing everything I say? Why — why am I still memorizing texts?!”
On the third floor.
Sheng Yize had just finished his shower. He was drying his hair with a towel as he typed back.
“Oh~ I see you have quite a lot of fantasies about me~”
An Xiaxia covered her face at his flirting and let out a little wail. She then summoned up her courage and wrote back, “No, I don’t! I don’t!”
Hmph! Like Sheng Yize said, she was officially his girlfriend now! How could he do this to her?!
“You mean it?”
“YES!” An Xiaxia was feeling very bold today.
“Open the door.”
“I said, open the door.”
While she was feeling utterly confused, there came a rhythmic knock on her door.
An Xiaxia’s imaginary tears rushed down her cheeks as she bit her fingernail and hesitated over opening the door.
“Will there be consequences if I don’t open it?” she asked in fear.
Sheng Yize replied with a concise: Guess .
An Xiaxia felt her knees give out and she jumped out of bed to open the door for him right away.
Sob … Sheng Yize was someone she really dared not piss off.
Sheng Yize quickly walked into the room once the door was open and closed it behind him.
His hair was still wet and a few drops of water trickled down, winding down his sculpted chest.
In a popular internet expression: That was a face too handsome to keep one’s pants on for!
Despite being stunned by his appearance, An Xiaxia genuinely didn’t want to memorize the text. She stomped her foot and looked up. “Sheng Yize! If you keep doing this to me, I’ll… I’ll break up with you!”
At those words, the smile in Sheng Yize’s eyes faded right away to be replaced by vexation.
He had finally lured this little fool into his hands. How could she talk about “breaking up” as if it was nothing serious?
He snorted, then took An Xiaxia’s chin in his hand and gave it a little squeeze. “An Xiaxia, I don’t want to hear ‘break up’ from you again. Remember? I’m not that decent a person.”
Tears welled up in An Xiaxia’s eyes. “You’re not decent… And you made me your girlfriend. What do you want to do to me?”
As her imagination ran wild, she covered her chest, looking horrified. “I’m warning you! I might be a brainless fangirl, but I’m not going to sleep with an idol just because I like them! You’re daydreaming!”
Sheng Yize’s face darkened as he listened. “Do you think I’m going to… sleep with you?”
An Xiaxia’s confidence was shattered.
Just listening to the way he put it… did it mean that he found her offputting?
“If not, then what…” An Xiaxia retorted sheepishly.
Sheng Yize was silent for a brief moment, then smiled. “A small part of me indeed wants to do something to you… However, what interests me more now is what exactly is going on in your little head!”
He flicked An Xiaxia’s head with his finger and ordered in a stern voice, “Go memorize your texts.”
“You… I…” An Xiaxia was so aggrieved that she waved her little fist at Sheng Yize’s face.
And she successfully hit it…
Sheng Yize was speechless.
An Xiaxia: “…”
The scheming boyfriend ground his teeth and pressed An Xiaxia to the door. His lips then landed on hers.
An Xiaxia whined a little and tried to struggle, but he then raised her hands above her head and kept it fixed there between his fingers. He then deepened that kiss.
It seemed forever when Sheng Yize finally let go of her with a crooked smile. “How about punching me again, and we’ll kiss some more?”
