Songsong took his words as gospel truth. She couldn’t look away from the mirror and giggled as she daydreamed about growing up into a beauty.
Seeing her silly expression, Sheng Yize couldn’t help but smile.
Walking past them while cleaning the room, Auntie Mo felt her heart melt when she saw the look on his face.
Young Master Ze… seemed to be coming out of his autistic world.
Back then, even Sheng Yize himself didn’t realize how colorful and bright his life had become with Songsong around.
She was a ray of light, illuminating his entire world.
The girl had walked into his heart and left her mark there. It was impossible to forget her ever since.
Songsong didn’t like going to school, so Sheng Yize tutored her while he taught himself.
For Songsong, Sheng Yize was her very first teacher.
The first Chinese character Sheng Yize taught her to write was “Song” and the second “Ze.”
She clumsily held the pencil and practiced conscientiously. However, when she spoke, it was still “Brother Ah Zhe.”
“Dummy! When will you be able to tell ‘z,’ ‘c,’ ‘s’ from ‘zh,’ ‘ch,’ ‘sh’ 1 !” he said with disdain.
“I can tell the difference!” Songsong said, puffing up her cheeks.
The boy raised an eyebrow. “Repeat after me, then. She sells seashells by the seashore.”
Songsong opened her mouth. “She sells… sea… bah… forget it!”
She threw a cushion at Sheng Yize, then stormed off to sit on the other end of the sofa.
Sheng Yize darted her a quick glance, but finally moved over, lending his thigh to her as a pillow as she watched TV.
She was watching Qiong Yao’s classic TV romance series “Romance in the Rain.” A couple of minutes into the show, there was a kissing scene.
Sheng Yize intervened resolutely and covered Songsong’s eyes.
“Hm… Go away! Why are you covering my eyes?!”
“It’s unsuitable for children.” His reply was succinct.
“What does that mean? Aren’t you a child, too? Why can you watch it but I can’t?” Songsong pouted. Sheng Yize, who had always been eloquent, was caught off-guard by that question.
After a brief moment of silence, he said, “So, if I tell you what they’re doing, is that ok with you?”
“How can I know if my eyes are covered? What are Yiping and Shuhuan do… hm…” Still babbling, she was suddenly silenced by a cool and soft sensation on her lips. It reminded her of jelly, and had a faint fragrance to it.
With her eyes covered, everything was dark, which only magnified the sensation on her lips…
Was this what Yiping and Shuhuan were doing?
Songsong was bemused. Sheng Yize’s nice voice rang out at that moment. “You’ve taken my first kiss. You’ll have to be responsible for me from now on!”
“Huh?” Her lips glistened and the look in her eyes was innocent. Her dummy expression cheered him up greatly.
“It’s ok if you don’t understand. You can stay a dummy like this and I won’t mind even if you get really chubby and ugly.” The smile on Sheng Yize’s face was very gentle.
I’ll like you no matter what you become.
Little meatball, I never knew your taste was this sweet.
In the ward, An Xiaxia slowly opened her eyes. She had yet to get used to the bright light and had to squint for a while to adjust.
A pair of big hands clutched hers immediately, then there came a voice that was a little husky. “Xiaxia… you’re awake…”
An Xiaxia blinked. Sunlight seemed to limn the teenager in front of her in a golden color and he looked as wonderful as in her memories.
Her lips moved and the words she uttered instantly dazed Sheng Yize.
“It’s been a while, Brother Ah Ze.”
