After that, she asked, “You can swim, right?”
Lu Wanggui felt that he might have to take back what he said about Xiang Xiaoyuan who didn’t seem drunk.
She wasn’t just half-drunk, she was really drunk! As for the way back, she was obedient in the car. Perhaps it was simply because she felt uncomfortable after drinking too much!
What Lu Wanggui did not know was that the reason why Xiang Xiaoyuan showed such a rebellious side was because when she was swimming in the pool, she accidentally saw him standing by the pool.
The moonlight shone on him as he stood there. His figure was slender and his gaze followed her. It was as if she was incomparable in his eyes.
This gaze was too mesmerizing.
When she was awake, the rational Xiang Xiaoyuan had also been moved by Lu Wanggui. However, this was not enough to make her abandon her rationality and the beautiful life in the future. Therefore, she controlled herself.
Using the word “control” was not very accurate. It could be said that she had been moved by many people. Lu Wanggui was just one of them. It was normal and it did not stir up too many ripples in her heart.
Lu Wanggui knew that he could not let her play around in the pool alone. Facing her questioning gaze, he could only nod his head as if he was coaxing a child. “Yes, but…”
Xiang Xiaoyuan raised a finger to her lips and stopped him from continuing. Lu Wanggui looked at her silently.
The two of them stood in the pool, wet. Although the temperature difference in the suburbs was slightly greater than in the city, it was still midsummer, so it was not cold in the pool at this time.
“It’s good that you know how to swim. Then let’s see who can hold their breath underwater longer.” Xiang Xiaoyuan beamed. Without waiting for Lu Wanggui to respond, she lowered her body and dived into the water.
Lu Wanggui looked down at her. The water in the pool was very clear, so clear that he could clearly see her slightly curly long hair spread out in the water. Her thick black hair, porcelain-white skin, and the reflection of the moon in the water above her head.
It was as if a century had passed. Finally, a string of bubbles appeared in the water. Before he could react, she suddenly stood up. The water in the pool rippled and splashed on his face.
She seemed to have completed some kind of playful prank. She smiled brightly. “How is it? Did you count how long I’ve been holding my breath?”
Of course, Lu Wanggui did not.
He felt that he was a little drunk from the smell of alcohol from Xiang Xiaoyuan. Otherwise, why would he react so slowly at this moment.
“Let’s go back,” he said.
Xiang Xiaoyuan could sense that he had feelings for her. If he did not feel anything, why did he keep hugging her waist just now? Why did he allow her to act so foolishly?
Perhaps because she had nothing to fear, she tilted her head and asked, “Are you really not going to compete?”
Lu Wanggui stared at the surface of the water. He felt that if he really dived into the water, then the water just now did not splash on his face, but on his brain.
“It’s time to go back.”
Lu Wanggui did not even realize how gentle his tone was now. “I still have to work tomorrow.”
Xiang Xiaoyuan was slow for a moment, then nodded. “Oh, okay then.”
Even though she was drunk, she was still understanding.
She was the boss now, so she could deal with her time freely, but he didn’t seem to be able to.
As she thought of something, a cunning look flashed across her bright eyes. “Then, are you admitting defeat? You lost without a fight?”
Lu Wanggui stared at her with a helpless expression. “Yes.”
“Then, will there be a reward for me if I win?” Xiang Xiaoyuan followed closely behind him. She ran to his side and held his arm. “I just had a cramp in my leg, and I don’t feel well. You can carry me back as punishment.”
Lu Wanggui: “…”
She didn’t know if she would regret it after she sobered up the next day.
Xiang Xiaoyuan continued, “It shouldn’t be difficult for you, because I’m not heavy.” After that, she added, “Of course, if you can’t do it, I won’t force you.”
Lu Wanggui really wanted to pinch the bridge of his nose to calm down, but his arms were entangled by her. He replied in a low voice, “Okay.”
As long as she could calm down and go back to sleep, he would carry her.
The two of them came out of the pool. Lu Wanggui picked up the bathrobe at the side and put it on her. He also wiped her wet hair. After she put on her slippers, he resigned himself to his fate and carried her like a princess.
Xiang Xiaoyuan immediately reached out and wrapped her arms around his neck. Her slender arms were fair and dazzling.
She was indeed not heavy. Lu Wanggui’s arms were also very strong. He easily carried her into the house. The only good thing was that it was very late and everyone in the villa was asleep. Otherwise, it would not be appropriate for others to see this scene.
However, sometimes, the more one did not wish for something to happen, the more likely it would happen…
