From Dusk Till Dawn! - Chapter 117
As Mo Yuhan entered the bedroom, he glanced at his wife who was fast asleep. Her sleeping posture was extremely graceful making her appear like an ethereal fairy. She was a person who will always bewitch his soul even if she does nothing.
As he lay down beside her, he softly kissed her forehead. The woman who was provoking him an hour ago, has now fallen asleep. Starting the fire without extinguishing it. He could only sigh helplessly.
As if feeling someone's presence, Tang Li frowned and her lips curled downwards, seemingly displeased. All of a sudden, she seemed wary. Her face turned white all of a sudden as crystals of sweat dripped from her forehead.
As she entered inside her apartment, the place was completely shrouded in darkness. She frowned and turned towards the switch reflexively but before she could stretch her hand, she had been pinned to the wall.
Her eyes turned wide as she found herself unable to move, both her hands were held above her head, while the person was caressing her thigh with another hand. His entire weight was crushing her body while the drug was making her weak and desperate.
The man seemed to be enjoying her miserable state as he lowered his head to her neck, inhaling her scent deeply. He seemed to be losing his control over himself as he harshly bit her neck and licked it roughly smooching it.
Warm tears welled in her eyes as she felt the pain and her face scrunched up disgust as she resisted with all her might 'N...No...Please...Le..Let me go....Please...'
As that man moved more closer to her, a familiar smell invaded her nose. That perfume?! Without giving her a chance to think clearly, that hand grabbed her waist as he pulled her closer....
"No...Don't....Please...Let me go....I..I beg...you.." Her tears were flowing uncontrollably as she curled herself. Her current state will make one's heart ache due to how pitiful she was, nowhere near the strong person she displayed herself to be in the day. She sobbed miserably...
"Lili, wakeup ! Lili!" Mo Yuhan was holding the girl in his arms who was sobbing, her tears staining his expensive shirt but he didn't give a damn. The girl in his arms was fragile, as if she would break if he let go of her.
He kissed her forehead as his eyes burned with anxiety "Lili..."
As if feeling the soothing sensation, or the continuous shouts that pulled her out of her nightmare, she finally opened her eyes.
Mo Yuhan lowered his eyes to look straight into those eyes but what he saw stunned him. Those black orbs of hers have turned dull, there was no brightness on her face, it was filled with pain.
The arms around her tightened subconsciously "I'm there with you. I will always protect you."
It was not a promise nor a commitment, it was a vow. In the near future, at the expense of his life, he will protect her from every shadow that threatened her.
Her confused listless look was not something which he could bring himself to see.
As if to prove his words, he grabbed her chin and smashed his lips on hers, biting those lips to bring her back to her senses, to punish her for frightening him. The pain from her lips made her brows scrunch up in pain as she realised what had happened.
Just the sight of her frowning made his heart shatter as he gently licked the place where he bit before. This time he softly kissed her, it was fleeting yet torturous.
Hugging her tightly, he whispered "Don't do that again."
Don't frighten me like that, I can never bear to see you in pain.
He knew it wasn't just a nightmare—there was more to it. But he will give her all the time in the world until she is ready—ready to break all the barriers and open up to him.
"Mm," As if she felt secure, she nestled deeper into his chest as he sighed in relief.
Unbeknownst to him, she opened her eyes in a angle he couldn't notice. For a moment, she was lost in a whirlpool of thoughts she cared for. Today was kinda hell scary for her, she was insane. That nightmare scared the hell out of her and she wasn't in her senses.
Until Mo Yuhan shook her hard, he coaxed her, kissed her and only with his various attempts could she return to normal.
She didn't open her eyes and instead replied a 'mm' to make him think that she was sleep talking. But what was she supposed to tell him? That wound was still fresh in her mind. Over the years, she had developed mysophobia and not to mention a severe OCD. Till this day, unknown touches were like evil ghosts to her. It was yet another scar that haunts.
How she wondered why the heavens see her as their enemy! She promised not to beat the hell out of the gods if they stand in front of her. Damn!
The only thing she was grateful for was her little family and especially her beloved husband. Maybe this was the most precious repayment god has given her for the difficulties she has gone through over the years.
She raised her head to look at the man who had his arms protectively wrapped around her. Maybe he thought she had a nightmare—or maybe he knew she was insecure but he never failed to provide her warmth.
She could see that charming face of his, these days he wasn't tired in work afterall so his face had an unique glow to it. She was damn sure he wouldn't have slept so early if not because he was hugging her. She knew it as he always said—her body gave off a chocolaty scent which did wonders on him.
"Yuhan..." she nibbled his chin hard.
He groaned unconsciously as he his hand rubbed against her waist.
Her naughty side kicked in the middle of the night. Maybe it was because she loved him to the point to be crazy—or because he cared too much for her. All of a sudden she felt she couldn't get enough of him.
