ABBR - Chapter 94-Pt.1

During the next half an hour, Murong Shi's phone beeped five more times. Xu Chuanchuan felt her heart thumping every time she heard it beeped, preventing her from staying calm.

Ever since they started living together, they had recorded each other's thumbprints on their phones. They also knew the password to each other's phones. Hence, if Xu Chuanchuan wanted to, she could easily find out who Murong Shi was talking to. However, she didn't wish to do such a thing.

After all, the fact that Murong Shi had placed her phone out in the open proved that she trusted Xu Chuanchuan. If Xu Chuanchuan were to secretly inspect Murong Shi's phone, wouldn't that be akin to her betraying Murong Shi's trust?

So, Xu Chuanchuan endured her curiosity and waited for another ten minutes before Murong Shi left the bathroom.

When Murong Shi saw that Xu Chuanchuan still maintained the same seating posture on the bed, she asked in surprise, "Why haven't you changed your clothes yet?"

The two of them were currently clad in a bath towel. Even though the bath towels they used were of the same length, Xu Chuanchuan's towel covered most of her body while Murong Shi's towel exposed a large portion of her thighs.

Xu Chuanchuan gulped when she saw Murong Shi's glistening skin, and she couldn't help herself from reaching out for those succulent thighs. While caressing her lover's thighs, she said, "You took a while."

"I'm feeling a little tired, so I decided to soak for half an hour."

"Then, do you want me to give you a massage?"

"Can you?"

"Come, come." Xu Chuanchuan dragged Murong Shi to the bed and sat the latter down. Then, she sat behind Murong Shi, placed her hands on Murong Shi's bare shoulders, and began gently squeezing them. "Is this much force alright?"

"Mhm," Murong Shi hummed a reply and narrowed her eyes to enjoy the massage.

At this time, another beep came from Murong Shi's phone, causing Xu Chuanchuan's hands to tremble. After sneaking a glance at the phone, Xu Chuanchuan reminded, "Someone messaged you."

Xu Chuanchuan just so happened to be able to see Murong Shi's profile from her perspective. So, she was able to see Murong Shi's thin lips casually uttering, "It's fine. Ignore it."

Ignore it?


Xu Chuanchuan let out a sigh of relief and continued massaging Murong Shi's temples.

Possibly because Murong Shi was truly tired, but her eyes quickly closed shut. While looking at Murong Shi's lips rising and falling along with her breathing, Xu Chuanchuan couldn't help but have the urge to suck on them.

After her massage continued for some time, Xu Chuanchuan gradually slowed down her movements. Simultaneously, her hands began misbehaving and gradually slid down Murong Shi's slender back. Then, they slid forward along Murong Shi's ribcage and playfully fondled the two soft bundles pressed down by the bath towel.

Murong Shi snapped awake and straightened her back. Then, she turned around, her eyes curled up slightly as she asked, "What are you doing?"

In response, Xu Chuanchuan squeezed the soft bundles in her hands suggestively and whispered, "You went on a business trip for five days this time. We haven't done it for a long time already."

Lifting Xu Chuanchuan's chin with one hand, Murong Shi curled her lips into a smile and said, "Didn't we do it just two days ago?"

"Huh? Did we?"

"Did we not?" Playfully looking at Xu Chuanchuan, Murong Shi asked, "Did you forget that video call?"

Xu Chuanchuan tilted her head and pondered for a moment. Then, her face heated up as she exclaimed, "That doesn't count!"

"It doesn't?"

"..." After pursing her lips for a moment, Xu Chuanchuan stated, "Of. Course. Not."

Murong Shi did not refute Xu Chuanchuan's words. Instead, she turned around and faced her lover, lifting the latter by her waist, and ambiguously said, "You seemed to have enjoyed it a lot that day. Was it also comfortable to play with yourself?"

"..." Xu Chuanchuan buried her boiling face into the breasts in front of her and pleaded, "Please stop talking about that."

Then, Murong Shi gently nibbled on Xu Chuanchuan's ear and hoarsely said, "Do you want it again after just two days?"

Xu Chuanchuan immediately felt a ball of fire rushing straight up her body from her lower abdomen. Unable to hold herself back anymore, she held onto Murong Shi's head and kissed her.

Because of her reserved personality, Xu Chuanchuan rarely took the initiative when it came to bedtime activities. There was also the fact that Murong Shi would occasionally say that her techniques were bad, which further lowered her confidence. However, when she thought about how they hadn't shared any passionate moments since they met up this morning, Xu Chuanchuan couldn't help but feel frustrated. So, she ended up biting down on Murong Shi's lower lip to vent her frustration.

Feeling a slight pain, Murong Shi teasingly said, "Hey, my lips aren't pork trotters."

Afterward, Xu Chuanchuan enveloped Murong Shi's left breast with her mouth while massaging the right one with her hand. Sensing a strong suction force acting on her left breast, Murong Shi giggled and said, "Be gentler. Are you trying to milk me?"

Xu Chuanchuan failed to seal Murong Shi's mouth. She also failed to hold down Murong Shi's twisting body. Feeling a little annoyed, she let go of Murong Shi and glared at her lover with reddened eyes.

At this point, Xu Chuanchuan's hair was already in a mess. Her bath towel had also disappeared somewhere. In contrast, Murong Shi still looked prim and proper. Even her expression hardly changed. Seeing this, Xu Chuanchuan couldn't help but feel aggrieved and asked, "What is up with you?"

While supporting Xu Chuanchuan's body with her hands, Murong Shi stared at her lover in confusion and asked, "What do you mean?"

Xu Chuanchuan briefly scanned the reddened lip she had bitten before and the residue saliva on Murong Shi's left breast. In a slightly embarrassed tone, she said, "You seem to be absent-minded all night, and you're barely reacting when I kiss you. You weren't like this before."

Murong Shi slowly straightened her back and embraced Xu Chuanchuan. Then, after planting a kiss on her lover's puffed-up cheeks, Murong Shi gently said, "I'm just a little tired."

Xu Chuanchuan could understand if Murong Shi was tired because of the business trip. However, Xu Chuanchuan found it a little hard to believe that Murong Shi was so tired to the point where she didn't even have the energy to share a kiss.

In the past, whenever Xu Chuanchuan gave a slight peck on Murong Shi's lips, Murong Shi would immediately launch a passionate counterattack. Yet, even though both of them were naked now, Murong Shi only listlessly gave her a peck on the lips. How could Xu Chuanchuan not be suspicious?

When Xu Chuanchuan linked Murong Shi's dull reactions to the sight of Murong Shi staring into her phone all day and Murong Shi deliberately preventing her from looking at her phone's screen, Xu Chuanchuan couldn't help but be peeved. So, without even thinking, she asked, "Are you meeting with another woman behind my back?"

Xu Chuanchuan's words momentarily stunned Murong Shi. Then, Murong Shi left out a chuckle and gave Xu Chuanchuan a knock on the head. "What are you thinking with your head?"

"I'm not joking with you." Xu Chuanchuan caught Murong Shi's hand and looked at the other party with anger in her eyes.

After stiffening for several seconds, Murong Shi retracted her smile and earnestly said, "You're overthinking things. How could I possibly fool around behind your back?"

In response, Xu Chuanchuan pointed at Murong Shi's phone and said, "Then, tell me who you were talking to this entire day."

Murong Shi: "..."

They had been together for half a year now. The first time Xu Chuanchuan got angry at Murong Shi was when she found out that Murong Shi had used "Passerby Shi" to trick her. The two of them had waged their first cold war because of that incident. However, because Murong Shi knew that she was in the wrong, she worked hard to please Xu Chuanchuan and seek forgiveness back then.

There was the saying of "even an angered rabbit can bite people." Xu Chuanchuan had already bared her fangs at this time, looking as if she would pounce on and bite Murong Shi at any time.

Murong Shi calmed her mind and sat Xu Chuanchuan on her lap. Then, she said, "It's just a friend."

"Fang Qin?"

Murong Shi shook her head.

Xu Chuanchuan grew nervous upon seeing this response. However, failing to see any expressions on Murong Shi's face, Xu Chuanchuan continued asking, "Is the other party a woman?"

Murong Shi silently stared at Xu Chuanchuan for a few seconds before nodding.

Xu Chuanchuan's left eyelid twitched. "How did you two get acquainted?"

"We met during my visit to Taiwan."

"..." Xu Chuanchuan never thought that the story would play out like this, and she couldn't help but have a sinking feeling. "Do you like her?"

Murong Shi let out a sigh when she heard this question, finding it both funny and infuriating. "What nonsense are you talking about? The one I like is you."

"Then, why are you talking to her? Or is she the one pestering you?" Xu Chuanchuan impatiently asked.

"That's not the case, either." Murong Shi frowned slightly, finding this situation to be somewhat troublesome. "This is a long story. I'll explain it to you in the future, but you can rest assured that it's not what you think. You need to believe me."

"..." Xu Chuanchuan suddenly felt her shoulders growing a little cold. So, she silently picked up her fallen towel and got out of the bed.

However, Murong Shi did not let Xu Chuanchuan escape as she pushed the shorter woman onto the bed and sealed her lover's lips. While kissing Xu Chuanchuan, Murong Shi also snatched the bath towel in Xu Chuanchuan's hand and threw it to the ground. Then, she began caressing her lover all over.

Murong Shi's hands seemed to be imbued with magic as Xu Chuanchuan's stiffened body quickly softened. However, just as Xu Chuanchuan was about to lose all sense of reasoning, she suddenly snapped out of her daze and held down Murong Shi's misbehaving hands. Then, she nimbly escaped to the side and stubbornly said, "I don't want to do it anymore."

She's clearly hiding something, so why should I believe in her? When Xu Chuanchuan recalled that Murong Shi had been happily chatting with another woman half an hour ago, a bitter feeling spread in her heart.

Murong Shi thought Xu Chuanchuan was only pretending to be angry, so she held onto Xu Chuanchuan's waist and pulled the latter back. Then, she began lighting fires all over her lover's body with her lips.

Xu Chuanchuan's body couldn't withstand the physical intimacy and quickly began showing a reaction. Xu Chuanchuan couldn't help but hate herself for being so weak in this situation. Though, she also hated Murong Shi for keeping such an important secret from her. Eventually, her anger overflowed, and she shouted, "I said I don't want to do it!"

Then, Xu Chuanchuan extended her hands to push Murong Shi away. However, because Xu Chuanchuan forgot to control her strength, and Murong Shi had been caught off-guard, Xu Chuanchuan ended up pushing Murong Shi to the ground.

Along with a "bang" and a muffled groan, the air in the room suddenly became deathly silent.

Xu Chuanchuan was thunderstruck as she looked at Murong Shi sitting on the floor.

Heavens, what did I just do?! After snapping out of her daze, Xu Chuanchuan hurriedly got out of bed and went to help Murong Shi. "I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I didn't do it on purpose."

A thick carpet covered the floor, so it didn't hurt much to fall on it. Even so, Murong Shi currently wore an ugly expression on her face.

"Does it hurt?" Xu Chuanchuan anxiously asked.

Murong Shi took a long look at Xu Chuanchuan, seemingly trying to hold back something. Then, she shook off Xu Chuanchuan's hands, got up, and said, "Nevermind, it was my mistake. How could I have forced you to do such a thing?"

Xu Chuanchuan opened her mouth, but no words came to her mind.

"I'm tired. Let's sleep." Murong Shi pulled off the wrinkled bath towel on her body and expressionlessly approached the wardrobe.

Meanwhile, Xu Chuanchuan stood aside like a wooden dummy, not knowing what she should do in this situation.

Several minutes later, Murong Shi returned dressed in her nightgown. She also tossed a set of clean pajamas to Xu Chuanchuan.

After changing into her pajamas, Xu Chuanchuan timidly sat down beside Murong Shi.

"I'm turning off the lights," Murong Shi flatly said.


The lights went off along with a "click."

The darkness worsened the anxiety in Xu Chuanchuan's heart. After quietly rolling around a few times, she opened her eyes and looked in Murong Shi's direction. Then, she said, "I'm sorry."

"It's okay," Murong Shi responded, her tone bland. Possibly because of the brief tussle just now, there was also a hint of fatigue in her voice.

Unable to calm down, Xu Chuanchuan began reflecting on herself. The two of them had rarely ever quarreled during the past six months of their relationship. They stayed together with each other every day, and they lived their lives in a monotonous manner. As Xu Chuanchuan had to write her novels every day, she had no choice but to neglect Murong Shi for several hours every night. Yet, Murong Shi seldom complained about this situation.

Thinking about it this way, Xu Chuanchuan couldn't help but find herself to be an incompetent girlfriend.

So, does this mean Murong got bored of me and went to find another woman? Is that how it is?

"Murong, have you…have you gotten tired of me?"
