“Since you have to take those bitter medicines every day, these chocolates will help,” Mo Shenbai explained, “Xu Jialu said you like this brand of chocolates very much.”
Xu Youyou lowered her head and smiled.
Although she had yet to eat the chocolates, she felt very sweet in her heart.
It was so sweet that she felt as though she would become diabetic.
“Mo Shenbai, thank you,” Xu Youyou said with reddened eyes.
Originally, she had planned to ask him out on a date to pursue him, but now, he had ended up surprising her with a gift instead.
Mo Shenbai stroked her head and asked, “Do you feel sleepy”
Xu Youyou shook her head.
She had been sleeping so much lately.
Moreover, how could she sleep now when her feelings were surging
“Then come with me,” Mo Shenbai said before he grabbed her hand and pulled her away.
Xu Youyou held onto the box of chocolates with one hand as she obediently followed him without asking anything.
Her bright eyes were trained on the Santa Claus in front of her.
She was like a child that believed in Santa Claus unconditionally.
Mo Shenbai brought her to the attic on the third floor.
Although it was called an attic, it was very spacious.
A warm light lit up the room.
At the corner, there was a Christmas tree that was more than a meter tall.
It was decorated with many shiny ornaments and was wrapped with flickering fairy lights.
The ceiling was decorated like a starry sky, looking quiet and mysterious.
Mo Shenbai pulled her to the couch and sat her down before he said, “You can watch any movies you want here.
All the latest movies in the cinema are available here…”
Although they could not go out to have a meal, they could still watch a movie at home.
Watching a movie at home was still a date.
Xu Youyou did not look at the huge screen in front of her.
Instead, she looked at him with sparkling eyes and asked, “Can I touch your beard”
Mo Shenbai was taken aback.
He did not expect her to make such a request.
“Can I” Xu Youyou asked, acting cute.
Mo Shenbai could not resist her and could only nod.
Xu Youyou reached out and gently stroked the white beard.
Although she knew it was fake, she still could not bear to use her strength as though she was afraid of hurting him.
‘This is Mo Shenbai; hes also my Santa.
I really, really like him, and I want to be with him for the rest of my life…
After Xu Youyou withdrew her hands, she said, “Im going to choose a movie…”
Mo Shenbai nodded before he said, “Now that Santa has delivered the present, hes going to leave, okay”
Pei Chuan had bought the costume from a roadside stall since it was so last minute.
Hence, the quality was not very good.
Mo Shenbai wanted to change out of the costume since it made him feel uncomfortable.
“Alright,” Xu Youyou said.
When he rose to his feet, she added, “Youre not allowed to give gifts to other people.”
‘This Santa can only give gifts to me alone!
Upon hearing this, a spring-like smile appeared on Mo Shenbais face.
Alas, Xu Youyou did not see it since it was covered by his beard.
He said in a low and tender voice, “Alright.”
Xu Youyou revealed a satisfied smile before she continued choosing a movie.
After Mo Shenbai returned to his room, he took off the costume.
Before he put on his loose sweater, he saw a patch of red rash near his neck.
He did not feel anything initially, but it began to itch when he touched it.
He sighed helplessly and exchanged his sweater for a turtleneck sweater to cover up the rash instead.
When he returned to the attic with two glasses of juice, Xu Youyou had already selected a movie and was waiting for him obediently on the couch.
When she saw him wearing a turtleneck sweater, she asked curiously, “Are you cold”
Mo Shen responded vaguely,Mm…
“Then, Ill turn the temperature up slightly,” Xu Youyou said as she reached out for the remote control.
Mo Shenbai was about to stop her when he heard her muttering, “Im a little cold as well…”
With that, he swallowed the words hanging at the tip of his tongue.
Xu Youyou chose a foreign film.
The plot was not very good, and after a while, she began to lose interest and feel sleepy.
Due to the high temperature and turtleneck sweater, Mo Shenbai felt very uncomfortable so he did not pay attention to the movie.
Xu Youyou yawned and leaned against the couch before she muttered, “This movie is so boring…”
Mo Shenbai lowered his head to look at her.
Even under the dim light, he could see that she was tired.
Xu Youyous eyelids drooped.
“Then, dont watch it anymore.
Go back to your room and rest.”
“But I dont want to go back to my room yet…”
It was their first date, after all, She did not want it to end so soon.
Mo Shenbai naturally could not bear to part with her soon as well.
He said, “Then, rest here.
Ill carry you back to your room after you fall asleep.”
Xu Youyou glanced at him and asked, “Are you using your boyfriends privilege in advance again”
Mo Shenbai smiled and asked in return, “Theres also the girlfriend privilege.
Do you want to use them in advance”
“What is it”
“You can lean against your boyfriend…” Mo Shenbai said as he patted his shoulder.
Xu Youyou covered her face and laughed.
After a few seconds, she nodded and said, “Alright.”
Mo Shenbai wrapped his arm around her shoulders as Xu Youyou leaned against him shyly and expectantly.
When she smelled the woodsy fragrance on his body, her smile widened.
Similarly, Mo Shenbai could not help but smile as he lowered his head to look at her side profile.
Xu Youyou leaned against him and closed her eyes as she said in a sweet voice, “Mo Shenbai, I like you.
Im very happy to be by your side.
Very, very happy.”
The sounds of a fierce battle coming from the sound system could not drown out her sweet voice at all.
