When Gu Jingxu woke up the next morning, before he even opened his eyes, he sensed a gentle breath. His still groggy brain quickly reacted, and upon opening his eyes, he saw Chi You sleeping peacefully curled up in his arms. Instantly, any trace of sleepiness vanished, replaced by an unprecedented sense of satisfaction. He lowered his gaze to Chi You’s thick eyelashes and moved his chin slightly, planting a kiss on her forehead.

This kiss caused the girl to frown slightly. Seemingly in deep sleep, she didn’t even lift her eyelids. Instead, she turned around in Gu Jingxu’s embrace and kicked the man’s shin twice with her heel.

Gu Jingxu, unaffected by her kicks, tightened his arm and gently rubbed her ear.

His legs hidden under the blanket were kicked again, and this time the force was noticeably stronger.

Gu Jingxu, now realizing he had disturbed Chi You’s sleep, got up quietly, saw the girl comfortably wrapped in the blanket, and his gaze paused on the conspicuous marks on her bare back.

Some scenes from the previous night involuntarily flashed before his eyes.

Standing by the bed for a few seconds, he turned and got out of the bedroom, exhaling slightly only after gently closing the door. He then returned to his room to freshen up.

While getting ready, he found his phone discarded to the side. He contacted his assistant, Wang, to deliver breakfast. Not knowing Chi You’s taste preferences, he asked him to bring a variety of dishes.

Gu Jingxu’s life was monotonous, revolving around work and making money.

After brewing himself a cup of coffee, he sat on the living room’s sofa, opening his computer to check the stock market. Everything seemed routine, yet different.

He was sitting in the same place he occupied every day, dealing with work just like before. However, there was now a girl peacefully sleeping in his home and on his bed.

During a stock check break, a sudden thought crossed his mind.

Similar to the novel and exciting scenes from the previous night, Chi You was currently sleeping on his bed. Just thinking about it filled him with a mysterious emotion.

Shortly after, Assistant Wang brought breakfast. After he left, Gu Jingxu looked at the rich variety of dishes on the table, walked to the bedroom door, and lightly knocked twice.

There was no response from inside. Just as he was about to push the door open, it swung open from the inside.

The girl had already finished washing up. Her fair face and bright black eyes were accentuated by slightly swollen lips, evidence of the prolonged kisses from the night before.

She had casually thrown on a white shirt taken from Gu Jingxu’s wardrobe. Its hem covered her thighs, and she wasn’t wearing pants, exposing her fair legs. The marks that couldn’t be hidden were fully exposed.

Chi You paid no attention to Gu Jingxu’s gaze, casually handing him her phone.

“Help me ask Director He for a day off.”

As she spoke, the girl walked past him, sat down at the dining table, and pulled out a chair.

“The password is my birthday.”

Gu Jingxu held Chi You’s phone in his hand, momentarily feeling a bit stunned. Unlocking someone else’s phone was quite private, but Chi You’s attitude was so natural that he couldn’t show any unusual reactions.

He had already seen Chi You’s information when handling the contract. He entered the password on the screen, successfully unlocking it, revealing the WeChat page.

The chat window that came into view made Gu Jingxu slightly dizzy. Standing in place, he awkwardly lowered his head, searching for He Xing’s name.

Almost ten seconds later, he realized that the slightly familiar profile picture in the top position was He Xing.

Chi You had only set He Xing to be at the top.

Gu Jingxu pursed his lips slightly, his stern face showing no expression.

He didn’t intentionally look for the chat between himself and Chi You. Opening He Xing’s profile, he refrained from checking their previous conversations and instead composed a message.

[Chi You: Director He, I am not feeling well today, I need a day off.]

As soon as he sent the message, He Xing replied almost instantly.

At this time, it was the usual starting time for the crew’s work, and he was still staring at his phone? Gu Jingxu was puzzled as he continued to look at the messages popping up on the screen.

[Director He: Not feeling well?]

[Director He: What happened to you? Are you sick?]

[Director He: I was wondering why I didn’t see you. (crying face)]

[Director He: Take good care of yourself. Come back when you’re better.]

[Director He: (kiss)]

He Xing was known for flooding messages, so Gu Jingxu wasn’t surprised that he sent so many in just a few seconds. However, he stared at the emoji He Xing sent at the end for quite a while before finally walking over and handing the phone to Chi You.

“It’s done.”

Chi You was already having breakfast, and Assistant Wang had bought a variety of breakfast items. Chi You wasn’t picky, and she tasted almost everything.

She took the phone and replied to He Xing with a kissing emoji, then exited the chat. She noticed a message sent by her senior sister an hour ago.

Recently, Shi Yue had been busy with work, and the two hadn’t seen each other for a while.

[Senior Sister: You You, aren’t you at home? I came to see you just now, but you weren’t there.]

Perhaps worried that something had happened to her, Shi Yue sent several more messages and even called her. However, Chi You’s phone was on silent mode, and she naturally couldn’t respond.

With one hand holding her phone, Chi You replied to her senior sister’s messages. After sending the message, she picked up the soy milk on the table and took a sip.

The taste was good, with just the right amount of sweetness. Chi You liked sweet things, and she particularly liked the taste of this soy milk.

After drinking more than half a cup, she raised her head only to see the man sitting across from her, hands placed under the table, sitting quietly without blinking, and staring at her while she had breakfast.

Chi You: “?”

Gu Jingxu: “?”

She hesitated for a moment. “Aren’t you having breakfast?”

Staying up all night and not having breakfast.
