Chapter 53: Pajamas Crisis
Because when this woman was raging in anger, he had this wild desire to tame it.
“You…” Cheng Liyue could not comprehend him. She deliberated over it and then said, “You wait. The supermarket downstairs is not closed yet. They should sell men’s pajamas. I’ll buy them for you. End of discussion.”
“No need. Even if you buy them, I won’t wear it. It’s a waste of money.” The man cocked his eyebrow, persisting in his ways.
Cheng Liyue huffed. “I’ll buy it and you’ll have to wear them.” She then picked up her handbag, planning on leaving.
“The supermarket is downstairs? Within this area?” Gong Yexiao arched his brow and asked. Because it was already late, he wanted to make sure it was safe for her.
“It’s right downstairs. Why? Do you want to go there yourself? You can’t. You have to look after our son.” Cheng Liyue then opened the door to leave.
“Be careful.” Gong Yexiao’s deep voice reached her ears.
Cheng Liyue closed the door. Did he just remind her to be careful? She couldn’t have heard it wrongly.
Fortunately, the supermarket was located within this residential area. Since this was a huge residential area, a relatively large supermarket had been opened for the convenience of the residents living here.
Once she entered the supermarket, Cheng Liyue began to browse around but all she saw were the most basic pajamas. There weren’t any branded ones.
It was her first time buying pajamas for men. While she was trying to select one, a sales assistant approached her. “Miss, what’s your husband’s height?”
Cheng Liyue immediately waved her hand refuting the sales assistant. Her face flushed. “I’m not buying it for my husband.”
“Oh. What is the height of the person you’re buying it for?
“Around one… one point eight three meters?” Cheng Liyue mulled over it. She just knew that Gong Yexiao was quite tall. He was taller than the average man, like a stork standing out in a flock of fowls.
“Then take these pajamas. It should be long enough for him to wear.”
Cheng Liyue touched the fabric and felt that it was quite comfortable. It was also gray in color and was not gaudy. She nodded and said, “Alright. I’ll take these.”
Cheng Liyue paid for them and went up to her apartment while grumbling in her heart. This man ate her food, spent her money, and will be sleeping in her bed. Wasn’t he the richest man in the world? How was he not ashamed of himself?
As she was having these thoughts, she arrived at her place. After opening the door, she saw the man sitting on the sofa, watching some videos on her iPad. Her first thought was: it couldn’t be that she had any salacious videos on her iPad.
The corners of Gong Yexiao’s mouth were raised. Apparently, he was watching something funny. Bringing the PJ’s over, she handed it to him. “Here. This PJ’s isn’t that bad even though it doesn’t look like much. You’ll just have to wear it!”
Gong Yexiao lifted his head and fixed her with a stare. “Do you usually watch such elementary video?”
Cheng Liyue glanced at the screen. It seemed that he was watching the comedy she had selected earlier. She scoffed. “If you’re that picky, then don’t watch!”
Gong Yexiao set aside her iPad and took the PJ’s she had just bought and looked them over. He had never wore such mediocre clothes before. But he would just have to put up with it for the night.
Seeing as how she had went out of her way to buy him a pair of PJ’s.
“Do you want to wash up first or should I go ahead?” Arching his brow, Gong Yexiao asked her. There was only one toilet here. He had used it earlier and found it to be quite small. When he was standing inside, he had difficulty moving about. He was already deliberating whether he should get a bigger place for her.
Cheng Liyue was just a designer of a company. That she was able to stay in this apartment for free was already good enough for her. How could she possibly fussed over such things?
“You go ahead.” Cheng Liyue would only take her bath after he had entered her room to sleep.
“What’s the sleeping arrangement for the night?”
“The bed is for you. I’ll be sleeping on the sofa.” Cheng Liyue replied hastily.
“You’re sure you do not want to sleep together? You won’t lose out if you sleep with me.” The man cocked his eyebrow and smirked.
Cheng Liyue glared at him. “Don’t even think about it. Hurry up and take a bath.”
Gong Yexiao took the PJ’s and went to the toilet. Cheng Liyue sat on the sofa and continued watching the video from where he had left off. What elementary video was this guy talking about? He had obviously been sitting here watching it for quite some time.
Hearing the sound of water coming from the toilet, Cheng Liyue promptly put on her earphones so she would not have to hear things that should not be heard.
Fifteen minutes later, the door to the toilet opened and an angry figure stormed out. The man was wearing the grey pajamas she had bought for him. The top fitted him but the pants… were obviously not long enough.
It looked horrendous.
Cheng Liyue glanced up and saw the man staring down at her with a pair of angry eyes. She quickly took off her earphones and asked, “What’s wrong?”
“This is the PJ’s you bought?” The man gestured at his pants and asked.
Cheng Liyue lowered her head to look at it and snickered. She nearly burst out laughing but muffled her laugh with one hand over her mouth. A gleam remained in her eyes.
“You dare to laugh.” Gong Yexiao felt that he had truly lost face. This woman was the first person to laugh in his face.
Biting on her lip, she suppressed her laughter and asked guiltily, “You… How tall are you?”
“1.88 meters.” Grinding his teeth, he replied.
Cheng Liyue looked at him in disbelief. “You’re that tall? I thought you were 1.83 meters.”
The man’s face turned gloomy. He let out a scoff. “Since you didn’t get the right size, then you can’t fault me for this.” His slender fingers started to unbutton his pants.
Cheng Liyue immediately cried out, “Hey, what are you doing? Can’t you just make do with it? It’s just for a night.”
“In my life, there is no such thing as ‘make do with it’. If I want something, it will only be the best.” Once he was done unbuttoning his pants, Gong Yexiao directly took it off and tossed it on the pile of dirty laundry. And before Cheng Liyue could even react, he made a move to take off his underwear.
Thinking that he would be bare naked, she covered her eyes in alarm. Flustered, she exclaimed, “Gong Yexiao, you pervert!”
Looking at Cheng Liyue who was covering her eyes, Gong Yexiao responded, “Don’t worry. If you were hoping to catch a glimpse of my family jewels, you’re out of luck.”
Cheng Liyue yelled angrily. “Don’t be so self-assured. Who wants to take a look at it?”
“I’m just that confident.” Folding his arms across his chest, he gave a smirk.
Cheng Liyue did not want to discuss this topic any longer and immediately motioned for him to stop. “Stop. I’m so over this topic. Buying the wrong PJ’s was my fault. Just sleep like that on my bed tonight. It’s not a big deal. I’ll change the sheets tomorrow.”
This sentence caused the man to become peeved. “You dare detest the bed that I sleep in?”
Raising her head, Cheng Liyue saw his feral eyes. If she were to utter another word, he would surely pounce on her.
“What I meant was that the sheets haven’t been washed in a while and they’re quite dirty, so I’m planning to wash them tomorrow.” Cheng Liyue explained.
But this explanation did not mollify the man. This woman clearly held him in disdain.
