Remember Self-Control: Bossy Husband Loves Me Deep to Soul - Chapter 10
Proofread by He Li
At the dinner table, Si Wan naturally sits beside Gong Siming. The distance between the two is very close, and every time she breathes, the clean and pleasant smell accompanying Gong Siming nearly makes her dizzy.
Even a full table of varied dishes is not as good-looking as Gong Siming to feast the eyes.
They have been married for more than a year, but it is the first time that Si Wan has been so close to Gong Siming; her heart beats like a jumping deer, not knowing where to rest.
Grandfather Gong suddenly speaks, "Wanwan, that brat likes crucian carp soup, ladle some for him."
Si Wan becomes stunned for a moment and then turns to the man beside her. Gong Siming looks stiff and cold, as if someone owes him money.
Hoping not to be worrisome, Si Wan clenches her fist and stands carefully to ladle soup for Gong Siming; trying her best to be cautious, she manages to make no noise despite her nervous tremble.
When passing the bowl, Si Wan glances at the man's gloomy face; losing herself for a second, she accidentally touches Gong Siming, "Ah, sorry."
The hot soup spills out and all splashes on Si Wan's arm. Gong Siming's gives her a glance but says nothing.
Gritting her teeth, Si Wan bears the pain and uses the other hand to wipe the table hurriedly, "I'm sorry, I will fetch another."
The servants immediately come to clean up the messy table, and grandfather Gong opens his mouth firstly, "That's all right, spilling out the soup only by accident. It's lucky that no one gets scalded."
No one notices that Si Wan has scalded herself, so she sits down silently and hides the left hand behind her. While having dinner, she bears the pain but the sweat bursts out upon her brow gradually.
Gong Siming gives her a cold glance, after that he naturally sees the wound turning red quickly on Si Wan's arm. His eyebrows slightly move and his body leans a little bit towards Si Wan. When finding Si Wan frowns with pain, he straightens his body again with great composure.
Since she likes to tolerate, then do it.
After the dinner, the servants start to clean up the table. When the seniors are chatting together, Si Wan just sits beside, listening to their talk. Recently she is busy dealing with the work in the company, so she doesn't have a good rest.
When it comes to the topics she is not familiar with, Si Wan starts to feel sleepy, but she has to fight off the urge to sleep. Her little head falls downwards and rises upwards again and again, which is seen by Gong Siming who raises his eyebrows disdainfully.
"It's already late. Si, we gotta go." Grandfather Gong stands up and says goodbye to Si Wan's grandfather.
On hearing that they're leaving, Si Wan wakes up suddenly with a start. Standing up in a hurry, she said quickly, "Grandfather, I haven't met my grandfather for a long time, so I'll be at home with him this weekend."
But Grandfather Si shakes his head. Giving a glance at Gong Siming who keeps expressionless, Grandfather Si refuses, "I don't need you to be at home with me. I have arranged to drink tea with someone else. You just go back with Siming."
Grandfather Si has known about the awkward relationships between his granddaughter and her husband. But the road is taken by Si Wan herself, so he can not intervene.
When Si Wan purses her lips, Gong Siming has already gone across to stand by her side. His voice sounds respectful, "Grandfather, we will visit you another day."
On the way here, Si Wan was in the same car with Gong Siming's parents. But when grandfather Gong finds Gong Siming drive his own car here, he thereupon stops Si Wan who is about to get on the car; meanwhile he tells Gong Siming that, "Our car is too crowded, you carry Wanwan home."
How could such a big car be crowded?
Si Wan stops getting on the car, "Grandfather…"
Grandfather Gong sends her to Gong Siming and comforts her, "Wanwan, this brat drives stably, so you can sleep for a while."
Without refusing or agreeing, Gong Siming turns around and gets into his car. Seeing this, grandfather's face goes purple with anger, "This brat." "Grandfather, Never mind. Please get on the car first."
To remove grandfather's anger, Si Wan has no choice but to follow Gong Siming. Taking a look at the cold-faced Gong Siming who sits ahead, Si Wan "sensibly" chooses to sit behind.
There are only Gong Siming and Si Wan sitting in the car; Si Wan opens her mouth and tries to explain: "I…"
But Gong Siming stamps down on the accelerator suddenly, after which Si Wan loses her balance and falls backward. Finding the speed increasing, her face turns pale and then she closes her mouth and drops her eyes.
There is a long distance between the two families. Since they don't talk, the atmosphere in the car becomes a little stiff and nervous. Si Wan was sleepy before, along with that now nobody talks, so she becomes more and more sleepy and starts to nod off constantly.
Through the rear-view mirror, Gong Siming sees Si Wan nodding off. The corner of his mouth moving invisibly, he suddenly makes an emergency brake on the corner.
"Ah…" Si Wan falls against the door abruptly, she then shouts out in pain. Looking outside, she finds that the road ahead is flat. So why make an emergency brake?
Holding back words of curse, Si Wan stares at Gong Siming madly. Knowing that she can do nothing else, she keeps silent and continues to take a nap.
The stare, containing anger, looks like that of a sleepy cat being annoyed, which is kind of lovely.
An indistinct smile appears on Gong Siming's face, and then he draws back his sight quickly.
Gong Siming drives relatively fast, so they arrive at the villa earlier than the seniors. At that moment Si Wan has already fallen asleep.
"Young host…" Coming out from the villa, the butler sees Si Wan have already fallen asleep. Considering that Gong Siming won't carry Si Wan in his breast back to their bedroom, he prepares to wake Si Wan up, "Young hostess…"
Gong Siming takes a step forward and stops him, "Be quiet."
Under the astonished gaze of the butler, Gong Siming holds Si Wan in his arms and sends her back to the bedroom, with their receding figure blurred and ambiguous.
After putting her on the bed, Gong Siming recalls the scald on Si Wan's arm. Lifting her sleeve, he starts to apply medicine to the skin; seeing her restless frowning in her dream, Gong Siming
A cool feeling comforts Si Wan, after which she gives a pleasant mumble that makes her very lovely.
Gong Siming looks at her, unexpectedly remembering what Si Wan told Mu Zhishen yesterday: My heart is already taken up by Gong Siming…
Really likes him so much?
Getting closer, Gong Siming looks at her and feels oddly pleasant. It is the first time that he has found Si Wan pretty: long slender eyebrows, almond eyes, and an oval face. All of these are so elegant and charming, making him totally lost.
When in the university, Si Wan was the school beauty, even prettier than Feng Ling.
Like getting an electric shock, Gong Siming's face suddenly changes and he draws back abruptly. Then, he questions himself in a low voice, "Gong Siming, what are you doing? This is the murderer who cruelly injured Feng Ling, are you crazy?"
As if something is sprouting from the bottom of his heart, Gong Siming grits his teeth, and quickly denies his idea. In a low voice, he says to himself, "She's the murderer, the murderer!"
Giving a cold glance at the woman on the bed, the man turns around and leaves the bedroom mercilessly.
Behind him, Si Wan opens her ink-liked black eyes, in which the tears fall soundlessly.
Covering her head as well into the quilt, Si Wan asks herself in a low and muffled voice, "Si Wan, why do you still attach exaggerated hope? Since a long time ago, you have already known that he would never forgive you, a murderer."
Choking out with tears, she could no longer suppress the pain she has endured for years, as it comes out of the earth and spreads all over her body. "I thought there would be miracles… If we got married, as time passes, Gong Siming would fall in love with me…Hah-hah, I've always been daydreaming…"
Gong Siming has already hated her deep to soul!
