Chapter 187

When she woke up, it was already past noon . The warmth on her back reminded her of the man sleeping by her side .

The fact that Huo Yunting could stay asleep for so long meant that he must have been quite tired yesterday .

Lu Zhaoyang sat up and changed . She gave him a nudge and said, "Meal time . "

She was starving .

Skipping lunch and laying in bed — it must be the autumn season that prompted this laziness .

Seeing Huo Yunting's lack of reaction, Lu Zhaoyang slipped out from underneath her blanket and walked across him .

Before she could leave bed, her ankle was caught in his hand . A sluggish voice spoke up . "Bring the food up here . "

Lu Zhaoyang barely stopped herself from replying "In your dreams!" .

She forced herself to reply mildly, "Alright, let me go first . "

The hand on loosened its grip on her ankle .

"It's so rare for you to be so obedient . "

Lu Zhaoyang ignored him and left the bedroom .

She finished her own food before bringing Huo Yunting's portion upstairs .

Fortunately, he spared her any additional special requests . She was dreading him asking for her to spoon feed him .

The weekend was a torture to Lu Zhaoyang as she watched Huo Yunting elegantly filled his stomach .

Suddenly, an urgent problem came to mind — she had not replied to Chen's message .

Chen could still be waiting for her reply or thought that she had not seen his message .

She threw a quick glance at Huo Yunting, who was finishing up the last of his food, and stood up abruptly . "Take your time . I'm bringing my laptop up here . "

Huo Yunting looked up at her with mild interest . "What's the rush? No one in the house will steal your laptop .

"Or perhaps, you're thinking of watching something…" He wagged his eyebrows meaningfully .

"It was only a document that I hadn't finished yet . Not everyone is as keen in porn as you!"

She retorted but did not leave the room .

If Huo Yunting so much as suspected something, she would be dead for sure .

"Pork? I dare say, pork meat is definitely good for your health!"

Lu Zhaoyang stared hard at him . She clearly said "porn"!

In the end, they both went downstairs together . Lu Zhaoyang eyed the laptop on the table and went to retrieve it with affected nonchalance .

The man beside her took a few large strides and reached the laptop before her . He switched it on as he said, "You should be spending the weekend with me . If you really want to read the document, then read it sitting on my lap . "

"We just had dinner . I'll take a look at it later . For now, I want to take a walk outside to digest the food . "

Working on his lap? She would be so nervous that she would forget all about replying Chen .

Huo Yunting studied the computer screen and did not see anything amiss . He tossed the laptop onto the sofa and went outside with her .

The weekend passed by unusually slow . Lu Zhaoyang was tormented by the secret she had to keep .

On Monday night, Huo Yunting was invited to a drinking session .

When Lu Zhaoyang heard the engine sound leaving the house, she rushed back to her room, pulled the window blinds, and then brought her laptop to bed with her .

She kept a TV show streaming in the background in case Huo Yunting suddenly came back .

Once she was in her mailbox, she clicked on "new message" but found it hard to put her thoughts into words .

Her fingers rested hesitatingly on the keyboard before Lu Zhaoyang finally sent her reply with only a single word .

"Alright . "
