Ch. 40 (1)
Year-end was always the busiest time for Chen Mo. Various kinds of anti-terrorism practices were arranged, set after set. Daily pick-up and drop-off service for Miao Yuan had been delayed. Even the matters regarding interior decoration had to be fully taken care of by Miao Yuan. Luckily, she was homely and headstrong about her residence. She also had the courage and desire to take on the task. Chen Mo just brought several soldiers to be porters while buying furniture, and the rest was completed peacefully without him.
Chen Mo handed his salary card to Miao Yuan, which contained all his work salary for the past two years. He usually didn’t spend much and had saved nearly 50,000 yuan1about 8000USD.
The house was already decorated, and now they were just restyling it, with Miao Yuan’s meticulous planning and careful accounting, the expenditure was much lower than Chen Mo had expected and the process was also quick. It just so happened that Miao Yuan’s landlord wanted to create a new atmosphere for New Year and came to discuss the new rent. She, under a fit of anger, simply canceled her tenant contract at the end of the month. The female student tenant looked at her with envy, elating her mood.
Although Chen Mo’s proposal was full of oversights, it was undeniable that proposal is a man’s greatest praise to a woman, and consent is a woman’s greatest trust in a man. Miao Yuan felt that right now, her relationship with Chen Mo was outstanding; she felt so content that she didn’t notice the obvious large problems in front of her eyes.
On moving day, Chen Mo was called by the team to make an anti-terrorism plan, so Yuan Jie called several soldiers to help Miao Yuan move. Yuan Jie was flexible with his behavior and afraid Miao Yuan would have any complaint, so he ‘secretly’, put in good words about Chen Mo in the lady’s ears. She was easy to persuade; whenever someone praised her husband, she believed it blindly and brooded how he was truly a good person. After moving, she invited all the soldiers to have a meal in a restaurant. Those inexperienced young soldiers, who received their sao zi’s2 sao zi refers to elder brother’s wife good graces were deeply moved and expressed their gratitude excessively. The young lady, who was on the receiving end, couldn’t help but complain, “You all, don’t call me sao zi again, ok? Hearing that makes me feel like my wrinkles are coming out. Feels so old ah!”
Yuan Jie felt worried and replied quickly, “What should we call you then, if not sao zi?” Miao Yuan proudly said, “Call me Miao Miao!” 3 [EN: lol] The soldiers were dumbfounded.
Yuan Jie coughed awkwardly. “I’ll just stick to Sister Miao.”
Miao Yuan felt upset and protested, “You are obviously older than me. Why do you insist on calling me sao zi?”
Yuan Jie lowered his head and thought to himself, If I call you Miao Miao, will I live to tell the tale? The captain will probably snipe me in one shot.
That night, after work, Chen Mo was about to head back to his dormitory when he was halted by Yuan Jie. He was rueful as he initiated the conversation. “Hey, now that sao zi’s house is fully furbished, it looks like a real home.”
For Chen Mo, these words felt like claws scratching on his heart. He halted at the doorstep and changed his direction. Enduring his itchy heart with much difficulty, he reached out into his pocket and tightened his grip around his house’s key.
As soon as the car drove into the district of family members, Chen Mo spotted his house’s lit window at the first sight, it was warm and crystal yellow, like a soft fire. He looked at it with a longing gaze as he sat in the car seat. After a while, he abruptly acknowledged it was his house! He slapped himself lightly and bitterly smiled, feeling his foolishness was unsightly.
Two days ago, Chen Mo drove to that house to move items. In the depth of the night, he was in a rush and bumped into the door while carrying a large bag of sundries. Things had been sorted more or less, but it still looked empty. One of the windows wasn’t properly shut, making curtains flutter with the wind. He put down his baggage and left immediately after, not even turning on the lights. Now standing in front of the same door, Chen Mo clasped his hand around the key, soon ringing the bell. If someone opened the door from inside, he wouldn’t have to use this piece of cold metal.
Miao Yuan had just finished washing her hair. With a big towel wrapped around her head, she sat cross-legged on the bed, watching TV and enjoying apples. She was in her new home and a new bed. This was her first night here, so she was in high spirits. She was going to call Chen Mo when the hilarious variety show ended to show off to him and to look down upon his unadorned dormitory. She was startled when the doorbell rang. “No way. Chen Mo? Why didn’t he call?”
Chen Mo stood in the doorway silently. Everything in his vision seemed to have changed, despite the sofa remaining the same and the dining table still transparent and hard, there emanated an ambiguous air in the room which softened all the edges and corners. Miao Yuan took a bite of the apple in her hand and waved in front of him, smirking. “Chen Mo, are you an idiot? Why didn’t you call beforehand?”
Chen Mo stepped forward and hugged Miao Yuan before saying, “Why do I need to make a call when I go back to my home?”
Miao Yuan blushed, struggled to break free from his hands, and complained, “You’re so smelly. Chen Mo, when did you last take a bath?”
“Just yesterday…” Chen Mo tilted his head and took a sniff. Rolling and crawling all day, the accumulated sweat and dirt had mixed, radiating an awful stench. The smell made anyone taking a whiff dare not compliment.
When Miao Yuan pushed him to take a shower, Chen Mo turned his head and confessed, “I didn’t bring a change of clothes.”
Miao Yuan chuckled and said, “I have some here, I’ll get them ready.”
Turning on hot water to wash the dust away was such a normal thing, but Chen Mo didn’t know why his heart was pounding so disorderly. Miao Yuan took out the prepared pajamas and folded them. She smoothed the folds of the cuffs continually, with a dreamy look of happiness on her face. The splashing of water in the bathroom stopped, and Chen Mo’s voice came from the vapor, “Where are the clothes?”
Miao Yuan responded in a hurry, opened the bathroom door narrowly, and handed over the fabrics, The back of her hand was gently brushed by his water-soaked fingers. Her heartbeat accelerated instantly.
Chen Mo was a bit nervous about these new pajamas, they were bought with great consideration and much love by Miao Yuan. The dark blue velvety texture was clean and refreshing. He felt that his wife had a really good vision. He pushed the door open and stepped out to see her wife standing at the door, deep in thought. The TV in the room was doing its best to make noises, with the host yelling and enticing, “One kiss, one kiss…”
Miao Yuan lowered her head, her face beet red, and said in a small voice, “Chen Mo, how will you sleep tonight?”
Chen Mo reached out and lifted Miao Yuan’s chin to look at her.
“What’s the matter?”
“Nothing, I just want you.”
Since the last time when he accidentally squeezed Miao Yuan and injured her, the matter of overusing his hand strength had become troublesome for him. He did an experiment with her, he squeezed her wrist slowly to see how much it affected her, but the fact remained that she never showed it. He felt that this much ought to be alright; he hadn’t even done anything, but the following day, he found a bruise on her hand on the same spot. He felt guilty, depressed, and bitter when he looked at her.
After thinking about it for a while, he concluded that he could only consult Lu Zhen about this matter. After all, for such a private topic, he couldn’t find a suitable person to indirectly consult. To ask a man, he felt like a silly X4X means 父 (fù) Father..in this case, should be a husband giving his wife to others to YY5YY means yì yín (意淫), fantasizing, sexual thoughts. As for why Lu Zhen was suitable… He vainly thought for half of the day. It was probably because Lu Zhen wouldn’t go YY about his wife.
Chen Mo had just finished expressing the main focus of the whole incident; as it turned out, Lu Zhen was out of breath from excessive laughing. He summoned his courage and asked, “How should I solve this matter?”
Lu Zhen burst into laughter and expressed between his laughs, “You don’t even have a problem. You can just play…”
Thousands ‘fuck’ ran inside Chen Mo’s mind. He felt really foolish.
However, Lu Zhen’s personality was candid. He comforted Chen Mo saying, “Things are no longer the same nowadays. Not only are men lustful for satisfying their desires, but so are women. Therefore, regarding this special kind of exercise, skill is important. I heard one of my buddies even allowed his wife to fly to him. Why, ah? You see each other once in half a year; people need to have sex! So, Gentleman Mo, you don’t need to create a mental barrier. Just go, take the initiative to improve one’s technical and tactical skill.”
Chen Mo vomited blood in his mind and thought to himself,
When did I not take the initiative?
Eventually, Lu Zhen, with much affection, scooped out a secret forum for his buddy Chen Mo. “Although it is said that practice is the foundation of true knowledge, rehearsal must not be missed. Therefore, Gentleman Mo, cast aside your shyness for the time being and go watch a few films, ah. “
Chen Mo asked Lu Zhen, “Which movie should I watch?”
Lu Zhen sized him up and thought to himself, As expected, there are still many talents emerging all over the world. Having been flirtatious for several years, I, this young grandpa/Xiao Ye, hadn’t seen this thing for a long time and don’t know anything about the current trends. Hence, he chose two of the popular ones for Chen Mo. Anyway, the mass’s eyes were sharp. If everyone deemed this was good, it should be for them as well.
Chen Mo vomited blood while watching those films, feeling guilty underneath. Facts proved that although people’s sight was good most of the time, they sometimes could have glaucoma. After He finished the film, he breathed heavily and hastily pulled away as he was about to spray blood on the screen. He called Lu Zhen and cursed in a rage, “What in the world are you thinking?!”
The puzzled Lieutenant Colonel Lu checked the forum in doubt and was immediately embarrassed. Seriously, you can’t blame me ah. Who made the two small blood-red words “S&M” so small? 6 ED: Yeah, curse the developer
Lu Zhen immediately made a sincere apology. “Gentleman Mo, I really was wrong.”
At this moment, Chen Mo realized that he had been led astray by Lu Zhen. In the beginning, he was obviously studying the problem of hand strength seriously.
How…how did it end with me watching this clip?
Lu Zhen took over the topic and said studiously, “Chen Mo, probably, you have a violent tendency deep in your bones. That’s why your hand strength is particularly fierce.
Chen Mo was startled. “Impossible, what do I do now?” He thought, on Miao Yuan’s small body, he didn’t need to be violent to pick her up and carry her.
Lu Zhen muttered to himself, this also didn’t work. “Anyways, restrain yourself, don’t hold her hand during the deed unless necessary.”
Chen Mo was frustrated, making a blank expression, he said, “You are too much. If I don’t hold her hand, what should I hold ah?”
Lu Zhen mischievously smiled and said, “What’s the matter? You don’t want the girl to come close to you?”
A flash of lightning exploded in front of Chen Mo’s eyes. He ground his teeth and thought, if Lu Zhen were in front of him right now, he would have been crushed to death.7ED: they were supposedly making this conversation on the phone
