Starlight Has No Past
Chapter 37 Part 2
Zhou Tingsheng could see Ye Qiao’s mischievous smile reflected in the clear part of the mirror. Rousing his suppressed desires, he clasped her waist from behind. His wet chest clung onto Ye Qiao’s dry and slightly cool back. She leaned forwards and mumbled her complain: “It’s wet……” Zhou Tingsheng pushed forwards, pushing the two of them against the washbasin. Ye Qiao had nowhere to hide, bent over to rinse her mouth, then scolded him: “I’m brushing my teeth. I’ll scream if you don’t stop.”
“Go ahead?” Zhou Tingsheng looked over her shoulder to meet her eyes in the mirror. His body heat from the hot shower made it feel like a sauna. Ye Qiao could see the desire in his eyes and quickly finished brushing her teeth. But neither of them had the confidence to continue.
Zhou Tingsheng knew very well he couldn’t act recklessly in this house. He reluctantly released Ye Qiao and turned around to get his clothes, then awkwardly left the bathroom.
The door to the bedroom was right outside the bathroom. He could already hear rustling outside the bedroom, someone was walking up the stairs.
Ye Qiao came out of the bathroom right after him and blocked Zhou Tingsheng’s path.
He forced a smile: “What are you coming out for? To watch me put on my clothes?”
Ye Qiao lightly clicked her tongue and stepped forward to give him an appeasement kiss. As their lips locked, both of them heard footfalls from the hallway. One set of footsteps sounded slower and heavier than the other. Grandma was outside.
There were many rooms on the second floor and the steps seemed to go towards the other direction. Ye Qiao became bolder and pushed Zhou Tingsheng against the room door. She teased him: “Grandma is up. What do you think she would think if she goes downstairs and sees an empty guestroom?”
As if to validate her question, grandma happened to ask right then: “Where’s everyone? Auntie Zhong, have you seen them?”
Auntie Zhong’s voice came from further away: “I saw him this morning. It seems he went out for a jog.”
The conversation outside and Ye Qiao’s voice mixed in his ears. Zhou Tingsheng’s heart thumped like a beating drum. He was rather uneasy about the entire situation, but Ye Qiao didn’t seem to care. She continued, moving from the lips down to his neck, then further down.
The old lady’s suspicious voice came through the door again: “Both of them went out jogging?”
Grandma knew that it was a good thing for young people to get some exercise. But Ye Qiao was weak physically and didn’t have a habit of taking morning jogs. No wonder she was suspicious.
Auntie Zhong couldn’t be sure: “......It seems so.”
Ye Qiao lightly giggled and squatted down. She used her teeth to untie the bath towel on Zhou Tingsheng. Zhou Tingsheng’s muscles were tense and his hoarse voice didn’t sound like his own. Ye Qiao could hear him murmuring her nickname as a warning, but his voice carried a hint of his desires. She mischievously continued her teasing.
