Gu Beicheng drove back to the Gu family mansion after the gathering and brought Lin Mingxi along with him.

The two of them were overwhelmed with an inexplicable nervousness.

Lin Mingxi entered the living room together with him to find that Mrs. Gu was still awake. Upon sight of their arrival, Mrs. Gu said smilingly, “I’ve redecorated Beicheng’s bedroom today. You guys may go up to rest.”


“Mother, goodnight,” said Lin Mingxi, after which Mrs. Gu waved at them.

Lin Mingxi made her way upstairs to his bedroom. It was her first time visiting his house.

“I rarely come home to stay. I have other property,” he explained after closing the door.

Lin Mingxi sat by the side of the bed and asked, “Would you like to take a shower?”


“Let’s shower together. We’re already husband and wife now,” Lin Mingxi suggested, blushing as red as a tomato.

The more she tried to cover up her shyness, the more awkward she appeared to Gu Beicheng. She was clearly extremely shy and embarrassed, yet she still continued to pretend and put on a brave front.

He decided not to expose her anyway. They then entered the washroom together.

After turning on the tap to fill the bathtub with water, they stood there, remaining still as a statue.

They stared at each other awkwardly.

At last, Gu Beicheng made the first move and removed his clothes.

Noticing that he was taking off his clothes, Lin Mingxi decided to follow suit and slowly began to undress herself.

Both of them were removing their clothes at a snail’s pace. They took more than five minutes to complete what could have been done in a minute.

They stripped down to nothing in the end.

Although she was already 29 years old, Lin Mingxi was already red with shyness by the time she was naked.

She slowly stepped into the bathtub and glanced at him coyly before looking away again quickly, afraid to hold his gaze.

Gu Beicheng smiled in amusement and asked, “Didn’t you say that we’re already husband and wife? Why are you still so shy?”

“I’ve never seen a man naked.”

“You haven’t?” he asked apprehensively, refusing to believe her.

“I have…”

“You have?” he asked again with raised brows.

“I’ve seen it before in erotic films!” Lin Mingxi exclaimed bashfully as her breathing turned erratic.

“Oh…” He smiled at her, seemingly hinting at something, after which he stepped into the bathtub.

The bathtub was extremely spacious and could fit four people.

He laid down with her side by side and their bodies began to turn hot as fire.

Gu Beicheng was in fact very nervous himself.

However, he managed to conceal his emotions well. Even the slightest brush against her skin would give him the chills, as if he had been shocked by electricity.

He turned over and looked at her before reaching out to grip her chin in his hands, forcing her to make eye contact with him.

Lin Mingxi stared at him intently with her mouth slightly open.

Gu Beicheng inched closer towards her slowly and kissed her fervently, like a predator who just caught its prey, while letting his hands wander about her body and caress her skin under the water.

There were some liquor placed on the shelf on the edge of the bathtub.

They were breathing and panting heavily from the passionate kiss. He grabbed a bottle of liquor and began chugging its contents down straight from the bottle.

While he was in the midst of a trance, the blurry face in front of him seemed to slowly become that of An Xiaoning’s.

He shifted his body on top of her and began kissing her gently.

He cupped her face between his hands with overflowing tenderness.

At this very moment, Lin Mingxi felt as if she was a precious gem treasured dearly by him. She was brimming with happiness and enjoyed every moment of it.

Throughout the night, they went at it again and again, as if he could never get enough. They did not stop until he got tired and fell asleep.

Lin Mingxi snuggled up beside him, blooming with euphoria even though she was aching all over.


At about three o’clock in the morning, An Xiaoning and Jin Qingyan woke up and proceeded to wake An Youqing up too. An Youqing initially got up on the wrong side of the bed. However, his grumpiness vanished at the instant that he heard about the vacation they were about to go on.

The family of three boarded the plane with their luggage.

Fan Shixin and the entourage of bodyguards tagged along as well.

The plane took off at three o’clock in the morning and arrived at the destination about three hours later.

They moved their luggage into their rooms in the beach resort before changing into summer outfits to match the weather, which was much warmer than that in A City.

They strolled along the beach and watched as the sun rose from the horizon along the ocean.

The breeze gently caressed their faces, and they were in a great and relaxed mood.

Sitting by the beach and playing with the sand merrily, An Youqing was the happiest one of them all.

After watching the sunrise and having breakfast, An Xiaoning was surrounded by a bunch of people all of a sudden. She then turned to look at Jin Qingyan in puzzlement.

“Let’s take a set of wedding photos here,” said the latter.

An Xiaoning sat on the chair in a composed manner while the makeup artist proceeded to do her makeup.

Although it was supposed to be a wedding photoshoot, the end product was in fact family photos of the three of them.

They managed to capture several beautiful shots after shooting for the entire morning.

They were currently in a small country called N Nation, which was very near S Nation. The air was fresh in N Nation, which was surrounded by mountains and a deep blue ocean.

It was An Xiaoning’s first time there and she fell in love with the place instantly.

It was already two o’clock in the afternoon by the time they finished having lunch.

The family of three then changed into a fresh set of clothes. An Xiaoning put on a tank top and shorts while An Youqing simply wore a pair of undershorts. However, his father, Jin Qingyan, was undoubtedly more conservative and wore a pair of boxers instead.

An Xiaoning and An Youqing jumped into the ocean and began playing with each other gleefully.

On the other hand, Jin Qingyan seemed to be preoccupied with making calls on his phone non-stop. After he finally ended the call, An Xiaoning asked, “Who were you calling?”

“Fan Shixin, of course. I have a surprise for you later,” Jin Qingyan answered as he stepped into the water.

“Is it the proposal?”

“It won’t be fun if you guess it out loud.”

An Xiaoning smiled and said, “I’m very curious about how you’re going to propose to me.”

“You’ll know later. I’ll be ruining the surprise if I let you know now.”

Shaking her head, she said, “That’s not true. To me, it’s a pleasant surprise to be able to wake up to see you by my side and be together with you every day.”

“I’ve said this before, but my greatest wish now is to marry you again. If I could make you my wife once more, I would die with no regrets, Xiaoning.”

“How many times have I heard you say this?” An Xiaoning gave him a peck on his cheek and said, “Alright, I’ll grant you your greatest wish.”

“I haven’t even proposed to you yet. Don’t be so eager to agree, later…”

She burst into laughter and said, “Okay.”

There were many tourists along the beach. Clearly, it was a popular attraction with scenic beauty.

“Did you arrange the boat over there that’s approaching us?” asked An Xiaoning, who was sitting on top of a float.

“Are you clairvoyant or something? Why do you seem to know everything? I’m running out of surprises for you,” said Jin Qingyan, brushing his finger across her nose lightly.

An Xiaoning watched as the boat stopped in front of them, after which they slowly got on it.

Just as they stepped onto the boat, Jin Qingyan’s mobile phone began to ring again. The smile on his face vanished after he answered the call. An Xiaoning saw clearly with her own eyes how his initial joy turned into a rare panic. “Prepare the helicopter immediately. At once!” he hollered in trepidation.

An Xiaoning’s stomach twisted into a knot as she felt the boat rock up and down unsteadily. She immediately grabbed An Youqing’s hand tightly in fear, overwhelmed with an ominous feeling.

“Is something bad going to happen?”

“It’ll be fine, don’t worry,” Jin Qingyan reassured her in a bid to placate her despite the situation.

An Xiaoning looked at his hand to find that it was trembling uncontrollably. Soon after, the boat began to rock and jerk even more vigorously. Suppressing her fear and anxiety, she asked, “Just what is going on?”
